Abbey Road Orchestra: Low Percussion - OUT NOW!

In collaboration with Spitfire Audio we bring you our most detailed sample library to date Abbey Road Orchestra: Low Percussion.

Featuring drums from across the globe spanning different tones and ranges, played by the wonderful Joby Burgess (Black Panther, Mission: Impossible) using a variety of striking positions, beaters and techniques. All within the unmistakable acoustic space of Studio One.

With over 25 of our legendary microphones on each drum, Abbey Road senior engineer Simon Rhodes (Skyfall, Avatar) meticulously captured each of the 166,000 samples that make up this extensive library.

Spitfire Audio are undoubtedly the best team in the world to deliver something truly groundbreaking. The bar has been raised exceedingly high and this is only the beginning for the Abbey Road Orchestra series. It feels like we are all in for a remarkable journey.”
