Nine Volt Audio has released Taiko 2, a multi-sample library of Japanese drums.

By combining theatre recordings with custom programming, 20 patches and 20 MIDI performance files, Taiko 2 offers composers a set of tools for creating drum performances.

 

Breakdown:

  • Depth: Every drum, rim and stick hit feature 100 samples spread across 10 velocity ranges with 10 alternating hits (a.k.a. 10×10 round robin). The full range of a taiko ensemble’s detail and tonal color is available with about 30 different drums, 14 rims, and 14 stick types recorded in solo and/or ensemble settings.
  • Use: The core patches are organized into “kits”, allowing for drum compositions from a single patch and MIDI track (including bonus gongs, cymbals, steel hits and vocals).
  • Customize: Dialing in new sounds is possible with the  EQ DNA menu, custom reverb selections and other effect and mix controls on the interface. Settings can be saved to a preset list within the interface for later use.
 
Features:
  • 11,500 samples in 44.1kHz/24 bit and 20 Kontakt 4/5 patches.
  • The library requires a full retail version of Kontakt 4.2.3.4914 or higher. The free Kontakt Player will not work with this collection.
  • Samples were captured from both close and front-of-stage microphone positions with patches available for both.
  • Taiko 2 features recordings of 13 solo drums, four drum ensembles (using four or five drums at a time), ten rim and stick types (each), and four ensemble rim and stick recordings (each). Please refer to the Read Me for a list of drum types.
  • Ten EQ DNA selections allow for quick changes of the drums’ sound and location by flipping through a menu on the interface.
  • The user interface provides a pull down menu of 10 custom presets in each patch. The ability to save user presets directly into the patch is also provided for.
  • Additional interface controls include: mix and pan for every drum/articulation, convolution reverb (with 16 custom IR .wavs), saturation, stereo width, low and high pass filters, low, mid and high EQ gain, patch gain and attack slider.

Pricing & Availability:

Taiko 2 is available via download or DVD at an introductory price of $129.99. The regular price will be $159.99. Complete information is available at ninevoltaudio.com/taiko2.
