Create a Huge & Thundering Cinematic Drum Sound
The “Taiko” is a large Japanese drum, hit with a wooden stick. It’s become an essential part of the modern cinematic sound we know so well, and has been used in thousands of popular film scores including Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, The Last Samurai, The Thin Red Line etc.
Its not limited to just ethnic music either – it became an integral part of incredible sound for the Battle Star Galactica soundtrack by Bear McCreary.
2.4GB of Deeply Sampled Solo & Ensemble Taiko Drums
TAIKO 2 features recordings of 13 solo drums, four drum ensembles (using four or five drums at a time), ten rim and stick types (each), and four ensemble rim and stick recordings (each).

What People Think About 67% off TAIKO 2 by Nine Volt Audio
This astoundingly comprehensive Kontakt library gives full control over a Japanese taiko ensemble and its soloists. Clever EQ and reverb impulse responses place the drums in a range of spaces and situations, while a full mixer gives level and pac control over every sample. Sonically breathtaking, Taiko 2 could find a place in any soundtrack composers heart, as well as music producers looking for something a bit heavier in the percussion department. Rating: 9/10.
