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.
