Cinesamples Used in Avatar

Cinesamples’ Drums of War was used extensively throughout James Horner’s score for AVATAR by James Horner’s Synth programmer, Aaron Martin.

“As a Synth programmer working on Avatar, Drums of War were the first percussion sounds I would grab for that incredible impact that the score deserved. The massive scope and width of these drums were a perfect choice for this groundbreaking blockbuster film. Cinesamples has an Oscar winning hit with this amazing product.”
