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.”
–Aaron Martin (Synth programmer for composer James Horner)
One of our most popular partners, Cinesamples, just announced that they’ve got a new series of percussion libraries up their sleeve for release later this month. Those of you who enjoyed Drums of War should have a lot of fun with their new offerings! They tell us there are extensive dynamic layers and round robining, three mic positions, and tempo-synced crescendo rolls that’ll benefit the suspended cymbals and snares. As a composer myself, I’ve gotten great mileage out of Cinesamples‘ huge action drums and meticulous attention to sonic detail, so I can’t wait to get to work with these.
