Product Description

You can think of percussion as the spice and flavor you sprinkle over the top of your music to give it its unique taste and feel -- unless of course you're kickin some serious Latin grooves in which case your percussion tracks need to seriously rock. No matter, SONiVOX has gone to the ends of the earth to unearth one of the tastiest percussion libraries you've ever heard -- Flying Hand Percussion. Produced by veteran sound designer and composer Eitan Teomi, this exquisite selection of hand-held and exotic electronic percussion instruments provides a quality and playability they guarantee you haven't experienced before. And that's great news for your music.

This exquisite library is recorded in high fidelity with multiple mic positions, 24-bit samples, an extensive selection of articulations (styles of playing), up to 20 dynamic samples (soft to loud) per instrument, and up to 4 alternate takes per articulation. All in all, over 40,000 samples packed into 4 DVDs of pure creativity.

But FlyingHand Percussion goes one big step further, something that no other percussion library does. It intelligently helps you play those tracks, makes your music sound so real you can practically taste it.

The Performance Tools:
"Legato Drumming" -- FlyingHand Percussion includes a proprietary and unique technique that intelligently responds to musical phrases, inserting musical nuances and tonal variances that provide an added level of authenticity. The result sounds very much like a real percussionist when they hit the drum in a slightly different place each time or moves a hand across the drum head creating a small scraping sound, etc.

Playable Keymaps -- you need to be able to play a percussion library with your own hands and have it sound real. So, all FlyingHand instruments are keymapped for playability and remain consistent throughout all instruments, which not only results in real sounding tracks, but allows for fast production. Includes custom keymappings for the Zendrum MIDI Controller.

Virtual Room Impulses -- FlyingHand Percussion through the entire recording process from initial input to final mix. Included are custom made stereo and surround room and hall impulses. These are delivered in a special edition of the PsP Audioware Nitro Filterbank plugin, which is a long name for a really cool effects plugin that puts your percussion tracks exactly where you want to hear them in your mix.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
