Dronar Rolling Per­cus­sion £60

Computer Music - - Reviews / Mini Reviews -

The 12th in the Dronar se­ries of Kon­takt in­stru­ments isn’t what you think: the sam­pled per­cus­sion in the ti­tle – or­ches­tral bass and snare drums, tom toms, tim­pani, gongs, cym­bals, angk­lung, xy­lo­phone, bal­a­fon and more – has been cap­tured as a col­lec­tion of rolls, mixed with a rich li­brary of ‘gui­tarscape’, synth and string loops (4GB of sam­ples in to­tal), then pro­cessed, arpeg­giated and mod­u­lated us­ing the pow­er­ful four-layer (two sam­ples per layer) en­gine. The rolls add an in­ter­est­ing new tex­tu­ral di­men­sion to Dronar’s pads and am­bi­ences that we rather like. times­pace.com
