Metropolis Ark 3

The Beating Orchestra

Metropolis Ark 3: The Beating Orchestra is the third installment in our epic orchestral series. But is it percussion? Or is it an orchestra?

In fact it is both, fused into one innovative whole: a Percussive Orchestra.

The roars of giant machines pale in comparison to those huge Taiko Ensemble Kits and drums of doom. Where other percussion libraries draw the line, we take things to the next level with a colossal orchestra in the form of a percussion instrument.

Metropolis Ark 3 is the ultimate orchestral beat machine.

It combines a massive, rhythmically driven orchestra with the loudest and beefiest percussion instruments we have ever recorded.

All of which allows you to harness the combined power of the orchestra and the percussion to programme rich, complex rhythmic patterns and gestures. The recorded articulations are designed so that these two parts dovetail perfectly. And the peerless consistency of the articulations means you will be able to play all the instruments together effortlessly for instant rhythmic inspiration.

Three truckfuls of percussion instruments and 111 musicians were used to make Metropolis Ark 3.
