A Wealth Of Instrument & Articulation Options For Ultra-Realistic Performances!

One of Strezov Sampling’s main goals with “Taikos X3M” was to have consistent Round Robins captured for as many playing techniques as possible to allow writing fast, but at the same time smooth and realistic sounding percussion arrangements. To achieve that they carefully edited every single sample of the 10 Round Robins manually and did as many iterations as needed after extensively testing the articulations in a real life composing environment.

In addition to that, yet another important goal was to expand the sonic palette of the Taiko sound by adding other instruments, which enhance, but don’t alter the aesthetics of the basic sound too much. The result is a large and varied collection of deeply sampled solo and ensemble drums that will breathe new life into your percussion arrangements!

12 Customisable Zones, 3 Mic Positions & EQ Controls For Total Flexibility!

The X3M Percussion Engine

The concept behind this engine is fairly simple – the keyboard range is divided into 12 zones that you are able to assign different sounds to. After creating a template of your choosing just plug in and play – nothing else needed!

In addition to that the engine also allows you to tweak individual zones, as well as the whole mapped ensemble patch with various effects and mic positions. Combining these with the natural and organic recordings you have maximum flexibility when it comes to sound.

Once you load up the X3M Ensemble Builder you automatically load all samples inside the “Samples” directory. However, the instrument is built in such a way that it actually keeps all samples purged, unless you load them up into a zone.

This means that not only do you have a single patch with all types of percussion you might need, but it is also optimized and doesn’t hurt your RAM resources in any way!

12 Independent Zones

Each of the 12 zones has its own set of controls that can be used to tweak the sounds of that zone independently from the rest of the instrument*.

  • Pitch – allows you to detune the pitch of the instruments from their naturally sampled one.
  • Trans. Attack – a transient shaping control that allows you to alter the attack portion of the instrument.
  • Trans. Sustain – a transient shaping control that allows you to alter the sustain portion of the instrument.

*Note: If you load two instances of the same patch into different zones, these controls will be locked to each other.

3 Mic Positions

  • Close – ideal for when you want a tight, focused sound.
  • Decca – a spaced microphone array most commonly used for orchestral recording.
  • Hall – provides the natural reverberation characteristics of the Sofia Session Studio.

Each zone also has its own independent Close, Decca & Hall Mic controls, as well as Volume and Pan controls for total control.

Flexible EQ Controls

Each Zone has its own independent EQ controls divided into High, Mid and Low frequencies, giving you total control over the sound of your ensemble.
