Product Overview

Whether a dragon is attacking a town, or a squad of archers are releasing a hellfire of arrows on to a castle... SIEGE DRUM should be in your composing arsenal to help up the drama of your music!

Our third release brings a cost effective set of cinematic / epic drum multisamples to your composing palette perfect for your next film or game score.

For SIEGE DRUM we recorded a large 13 x 13 Medieval Davul Drum in both a studio setting for extremely dry recordings as well as in an old late 19th century hall built in 1896 giving the recordings a very unique and nice sense of space.

The FULL version of Kontakt 4.2.2 is required - NOT Kontakt Player

Big Sounds

We recorded (in both venues) the drum being hit by hands, a large leather mallet, a rattan, as well as traditional sticks each giving the drum a very unique timbre. Every hit has 4X Round Robins and up to 5 velocity layers. 14 patches in all, this drum can have some serious low end or even masquerade as a tom, open snare, or frame drum. If played together these patches can sound MASSIVE.

Also included are a series of FX and rolls adding a nice bonus to the entire package.

The GUI has an Arpeggiator, pitch control, 13 custom Impulse Responses, a dry / wet control, and even the ability to control the EQ, attack, and release of the samples! The pitch control in particular makes SIEGE DRUM into a wholly new instrument.

Another little gem from UnEarthed Sampling

Siege Drum is what its name implied and it sounds really good. Very handy for "that time" when you really need epic sounding drums in a piece, without having to splash out for any of the other high-end orchestral offering out there.

Similar to other tools from UnEarthed Sampling, this is a finely focused piece of software that does the job well when you need epic-sounding drums. It really finds it's place in all genres of music, but stands out when used as part of the production of Ambient, Scores or game music.

Well worth the modest investment.

Medieval drums, the best bang for your buck!

Although I initially had a little trouble figuring out the optimal use of these drum samples, they've come in extremely handy. Brushed bodhrans, frame drums, hand percussion, Siege Drum has got them all, and most importantly, they're easy to integrate into an ensemble. Multiple instances of the drum can indeed be turned into ensembles with a simple adjustment to panning, pitch, etc., and voila! All this comes at the price of a couple cups of coffee and saves me hours of micing, recording time, or worse, waiting on an instrumentalist to send me stems.

My singular complaint is the convolution reverb, which can be quite tricky to get right, compounded with the small size of the library in general. The latter is a blessing in disguise; it's wonderfully light on RAM.

I would appreciate additions such as taiko drums, 1000 dB bass, or other cinematic percussion instruments to turn this into a one-stop-shop plugin. It can be tricky to figure out, but I've come to love it for its peculiarities. Very playable.

Unearthly deep booms!

As Gandalf said: Drums in the deep or something to that effect! Great sounding and fun to play siege drum with several different patches. Go get it!

Great Percussion with a Kick!

This is an amazing instrument! You get a loud drum, but then you get many parameters with which you can dial in, making the drum way more than a seige drum. Whatever your genre, you WILL find a drum out of this instrument. On top of that, the freakin' sequencer makes designing rhythmic patterns less of a chore and more of an adventure. It looks simple at a glance, but it can provide you a great intro to a song or a backing for a soundtrack. Get ready to go to war against boring drum lines with the Siege Drum!

Very Nice!

Not my biggest drum library in terms of gigabytes, but extremely nice sounding and actually one of my most used. Those toms really smacks hard and sits very nice in the mix! Recommended!

Pretty Amazing!

I bought this, skeptically based on price point, but was not unhappy with its capabilities.

You will not be disappointed, and will actually find yourself using it more and more as time goes on.

Great for cinematic.epic film trailer and film works.
