Full-contact drums

Tom Holkenborg’s Percussion gives you the triple-A composer’s very own drum collection—the exact same drums you heard in Mad Max: Fury Road, Zack Snyder’s Justice League, and Godzilla vs. Kong. And the exact same drums Tom uses in his template today. Often imitated and now duplicated, these drums offer unique playability, an exhaustive dynamic range, and insane volume.

Push the limits of loud

Or quiet. With up to 100 dynamic layers per instrument, this deep-sampled percussion library gives you a tremendous range—from subtle rhythmic underscoring to aggressive, explosive salvos. The dynamic layers are mapped across your keyboard from very quiet to very very loud. This gives you an expressive way to play and makes detailed pattern editing much easier.

Custom drums and special tunings

This is not your regular orchestral percussion. Tap into a unique collection of instruments assembled over the course of more than 7 years. It’s an eclectic mix of Tom’s own drum kits, plus surdos, tupans, and Yamaha Custom drums. The library also includes special patches like the Quad Toms—4 kits playing in parallel for a massive sound. Most drums are provided in a variety of sizes and a choice of tunings.

Mixed for the big screen

The sound is rich, detailed, and up-front—mix-ready straight out of the box. Blend front and back mics to fine-tune attack. All drums were recorded and processed by Tom in exactly the same way, so any combination of instruments will yield a cohesive sound.

Tom Holkenborg is a Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum composer, producer, musician, and educator whose versatility puts him on the cutting edge of contemporary music—and whose thirst for innovation is helping reimagine the world of composition. A skillful multi-instrumentalist, Holkenborg is hands-on at every stage of the composing process. Tom has more than 120 scoring credits for film, video games, and television, including blockbuster movies such as Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Godzilla vs. Kong, and Mad Max: Fury Road.
