The idea behind Scoring Percussion
From the beginning, Scoring Percussion has been designed to make an impact. Created with the Elbtonal Percussion ensemble, this Groove Agent expansion combines a variety of epic live performed loops and rhythm sounds using orchestral drums, percussion and a wide variety of other percussive instruments. At the core of this 24-preset kit are many masterfully-programmed MIDI patterns, all with intros, crescendos, different main parts and endings, which are suitable for all kinds of epic music, game scores or media composition. Scoring Percussion contains single hits, including Gran Cassa, war drums, tam-tams, toms, snares, piatti, cymbals, bongos, congas, synth drones and a huge range of energetic performance loops.
Recorded with Elbtonal Percussion
Elbtonal Percussion comprises four immensely talented percussionists, who have mastered the creative crossover of different musical styles and sound aesthetics, and their huge pool of innumerable drums, gongs and creatively-interpreted everyday objects. They collaborate with prestigious artists and have been involved in several international film productions, such as The Baader-Meinhof Complex.
After a long Covid-related hiatus, Elbtonal Percussion was able to finally come altogether for the first time in many months to perform at a big stage at the famous Friedrich-Ebert Halle in Hamburg. Releasing all the pent-up emotions and playability in an incredible high-energy performance for this sample session, it was the perfect fit for an inspiring Groove Agent expansion.
