About Epic Taiko Ensemble

8DIO Epic Taiko Ensemble is the most comprehensive and deep sampled collection of Ensemble Taiko on the market. The library was recorded in our signature Cathedral and comes with two microphone positions (close and mid).

 

The library features the highly renowned Taiko Ensemble group: Emmeryville Taiko lead by Susan Holm. The recordings lasted over a week, which allowed us to capture an unprecedented amount of content. Epic Taiko Ensemble contains three main categories of samples: Multi-sampled Taiko Ensemble (10 round robin for all articulations), Live Loops of the Taiko Ensemble and an assortment of other sounds associated to Taiko (ex. ensemble screams, yells, yell-hits, percussive cannon (Tekkan).

 

Epic Taiko Ensemble follows the same principles established in our other epic percussion libraries in terms of articulations, velocity layering and round robin. Articulations have up to 8 velocity layers and all sampled at 10 round robin (aka repetitions). We sampled all the classic Taiko drums from the big sounding, O-Daiko, Nagado Daiko to the smaller and more snare like, Shime. In addition we also played the drums with hands and alternative stick types – and we got the most comprehensive collection of clacks made with different type of sticks and by hitting the rims of the larger Taiko drums.

 

In addition we also recorded a comprehensive amount (+1.6GB) of ensemble loops with the Taiko Ensemble. The loops were recorded at 80, 90, 100, 110, 120, 130 and 140 BPM. The loops are intended to be used as stand-alone and/or in combination with the multi-samples. The loops contain both classic Taiko style rhythms and more contemporary rhythms for film scoring etc.

 

The library was recorded in the same signature hall used for our Solo Taiko Drum and Epic Frame Drums. We highly recommend purchasing both Epic Taiko Ensemble and Solo Taiko Drum, since they use the same drums, microphone perspectives and gives you the necessary depth to create completely realistic Taiko performances. The two libraries were recorded in the same Cathedral environment. Solo Taiko Drums contains over 4.200 samples – coverering the entire Taiko family from Daiko’s to Shime’s – with over 60 different articulations.

 

Epic Taiko Ensemble features highly renowned, Emeryville Taiko lead by Taiko Master: Susan Holm.
