After the success of “Drums of the Deep I”, which made its way swiftly into major scores, such as video game shooter of the year, “Titanfall” by Stephen Barton, who described it as a “staple in his template”, we could not possibly stop there – so we’ve taken it all to a new level, and are proud to present DRUMS OF THE DEEP II
•In “Drums of the Deep II”, we recorded as many as EIGHT drummers playing at once, for a sound that can only be described as cataclysmic…
•Over fifty instruments were recorded, and every drum was meticulously mic’ed to capture every sonic detail these magnificent instruments had to offer.
•We spent much longer recording this library, ending with a huge amount of content… Includes up to 7RR per hit, 6/7 dynamic layers, and many different types of mallets/sticks and techniques.
