Berlin Percussion


Timpani is the first library of its kind with True Damping Control, which enables you to dampen the skin on a very natural way by using special recorded release samples. The instrument was played by Sebastian Trimolt (credits includes soundtrack recordings for "The International" and Blue Man Group).

Over two days of sessions, we captured the wonderful sound of orchestral Timpani with its many different facets in one of our favorite venues: The Teldex scoring stage in Berlin. The same stage where we recorded Berlin Woodwinds and Berlin Strings.


  • First timpani samples with true dampening

  • 4 different mallets

  • Up to 10 round robins

  • Up to 7 velocity layers

  • New mic positions

  • Tempo-synced repetitions (4th, 8th, 16th and 32nd)

  • Dynamic rolls: crescendos and diminuendos in various lengths

  • Recorded at the Teldex Scoring Stage

More mallets

Choose between four different mallets, ranging from soft to hard – including a special baroque version.


Pre-recorded crescendos and diminuendos in a variety of lengths and dynamics, all fully controllable.


Real performance recordings of 4th, 8th, 16th and 32nd repetitions will adapt to your host tempo automatically.

FX articulations

Additional recorded timpani effects, a fff impact patch (played with both mallets at once) and a muted timpani patch are all available.

4 mic positions

With a choice of four mic positions (Close, AB, Tree and Surround), you will have all the control you need to integrate Timpani seamlessly into your template and production set-up.
