Big Bang Orchestra Quasar
Drums, cymbals, gongs, percussion
Exceptional acoustics of the large Synchron Stage Vienna
Multiple microphone positions
Wide variety of presets, from close to ambient, from natural to processed
This percussion module offers a collection of unpitched instruments in the categories of Drums, Cymbals & Gongs, and Percussion, derived from the Synchron Series libraries Synchron Percussion I and Synchron Percussion II.
All instruments were recorded “in situ” on their perfect spot in the large hall of Synchron Stage Vienna with an expansive, phase-controlled multi-microphone set-up, including close and mid mics, Decca tree (left - center - right), as well as surround and high surround outriggers.
Big Bang Orchestra: Quasar includes these instruments:
Bass drum with low tuning, played with soft and hard mallets
Snare drum, played with sticks, rods and brushes
6 Concert toms (8" – 16"), played with sticks
10 Taikos (8" – 53"), played with several cudgels and tam beaters
Suspended cymbal, played with sticks, soft mallets and brushes
2 Tam-tams, played with soft beaters
5 Woodblocks, played with soft beaters
Articulations include a variety of single hits, rimshots, upbeats, rolls and many others, depending on the instruments and beaters. You’ll find a complete list here.
Getting the right sound out-of-the-box is a breeze, given the host of presets that not only match the sound of all the other libraries in the Big Bang Orchestra series, but also stand on their own in all kinds of arrangements and styles. By expertly combining the available microphone signals with the internal effects of the Synchron Player you get Presets such as Close, Classical, Wide, Distant, Ambient, Comp+Reverb, Boom+Comp, Far Away Echoes, and many more.
