Description : Hans Zimmer features rock aristocrat Jason Bonham playing his grand-sounding DW Vistalite kit at legendary Los Angeles venues, as well as some exclusives. The most epic set, performed by the most epic drummer, in three epic locations, produced by the godfather of the epic composer, producer and sound engineer Hans Zimmer (one of the most successful, influential and prolific composers of his generation). His writing highlighted a generation of hugely successful films that turned over billions of dollars, countless awards and critical acclaim. Hans defined not only the compositional style, but also the production approach and sonic innovations that influenced a generation of composers.
Spitfire Audio is proud to introduce the legendary product line and its brilliant team of engineers, musicians and technicians. Where Hans Zimmer’s style and approach to sonic creativity is often copied or emulated, we are proud to present to the world at large HZ’s determined pioneering approach to cinematic percussion production. This is not an emulation or synthesis of his approach, but the very essence. The same studio, musicians, instruments, talented engineers with decades of experience, innovation and sophistication controlled by Hans himself. The same agonizing attention to detail, perfection, but most importantly, the endless selection of customization options you’ve come to expect from the greatest sonic artists.
