    What is best orchestral percussion lib

    Hi there,
    Another question... what is the best overall orchestral lib on the market at the moment?
    Is there one, or are there a couple that go well together... given that there seems to be a specific timpani library, I well imagine there could be quite a few?

    Without a doubt Ultimate Orchestral Percussion. Although the people who did that library are working on a much bigger library that is set to replace UOP.

    What is the due replacement date for that library... is it worth buying it now I guess... I imagine they would have an upgrade path for existing users? How many CDs does it come on... let me go look for it now...

    I don\'t know when the new library will be out, and I don\'t know if there\'ll be an upgrade path. But for now you can go to www.dssoundware.com

    Well I guess the cats out of the bag...thanks Simon!!

    This library is a whole different shooting match from the first one. And yes there will be an upgrade path. Not sure exactly what yet but there will be one. We didn\'t want to leave everyone holding the bag so to speak.

    Here are some of the features/benifits:

    -four discs of material
    -smaller file sizes (average is 40 megs)
    -tons more articulations and more velocities
    -real hall built in but the amount can be controlled via the mod wheel
    -release triggers on all sustained instruments
    -7 pairs of crash cymbals
    -10 Glockenspiel patches (two different glocks)...average size is 50 megs with 4 velocties
    -8 snare drum patches including field drum and snare section
    -6 xylophone patches (2 different xylos) 4 velocities; avg size 15 megs
    -6 suspended cymbals...everything from a 14\" to 20\".
    -6 tambourines
    -4 gongs from a 18\" wind gong to a massive 40\" Sabian!
    -2 sets of castanets
    -5 chime patches (2 different sets)
    -3 crotale patches
    -finger cyms, rainstick, ratchet, claves, shakers, slap stick, sleigh bells, slide whistle, vibraslap, temple blocks, piccolo temple blocks, 2 thunder sheets, 7 anvils, cowbells
    -sizzle cymbal
    -2 concert bass drums
    -4 triangles
    -5 woodblocks
    -4 concert toms
    -two sets of timpani with tons of articulations

    I\'ll try to have some demos up soon!

    Will there be ANY benefits to having both UOP and the new set? Will they be different waveforms completely?...

    King,

    Everything is different on this one. We used different gear and recorded everything in the same hall.

    The only benefit to having both would be more selection but I can\'t imagine needing more than whats in this new one. I don\'t and you know what a percussion nerd I am!

    The upgrade path is there for people who have the first so they don\'t have to shell out at full pop for this one. We just thought that would be a cool thing to do.

    Donnie, it\'s not like you haven\'t mentioned this library here yourself several times.... You even posted demos using it.

    Donnie,

    How did you get the file sizes down? Are you offering mono versions in this library?

    I was salivating looking at the lists. I love the current library and can\'t wait to add this one - just have to find more money.

    Hey Donnie,

    The selection on this new Orchestral Percussion library looks superb to me!
