The New Epic Toms Ensemble overview

The New Epic Toms Ensemble is the most comprehensive and deep-sampled collection of large-scale Epic Toms Ensemble on the market. The library is a completely remastered, redesigned and reprogrammed edition of our original Epic Toms Ensemble. The New Epic Toms Ensemble contains over 2.400 samples, built-in articulation browser, internal step-sequencer, front-face FX, textural convolutions and our newest 3.4 Chaos Engine.

Epic Toms Ensemble VST is a large multi-sample library dedicated to massive ensemble percussion. We captured a variety of power articulations, using a combination of high-tuned 10″ – 14″ toms, roto-toms and octabans, various floor toms, bass drums and custom designed mega-toms. Perfect for raging battle scenes or when you just need a really loud boom. We highly recommend trying it with our New Epic Dhol Ensemble, New Epic Frame Drums and Small Epic Percussion. All extensively recorded by some of the very best percussionists* in the world, in a high-ceiling glass, stone and tile hall specifically designed for sample recording.

Even though these instruments were all recorded naturally wet for realism and maximum audio quality in our epic recording hall, we have also incorporated advanced programming into every instrument patch that allows you to precisely and realistically shape the decay of the room reverberation with the mod-wheel. This allows custom “room control” shaping, all the way from massive hall down to small drum room.

Integrated Browser

The New Epic Toms Ensemble contains a new integrated browser that gives you instant access to the entire library collection. The browser allows you find any articulation in the library with a single click and with virtually no load-time. The browser also gives you access to master articulations – where you have the entire sets laid out on the keyboard for maximum control, ease-of use and instant fun.

Textural Convolutions

Textural Convolutions is a new way of using convolution to create textural delays. The idea is to use non-conventional convolution impulses to augment the existing sound. So when the instrument delays – you will not just get a normal delay of the instrument, but also get the delay and texture of the convolution. This concept is called Textural Convolutions and we hand-crafted over 130 impulses for the Framedrums. The Textural Convolutions can also be randomized.

Internal Sequencing

The New Epic Toms Ensemble comes with a built-in step-sequencing – allowing you to program the drums with ultra precision and tightness. The step-sequencer allows you to create advanced rhythms in any signature rhythm and with both velocity layering and round-robin. In addition you can choose what tempo you want it to play at and even play in triplets too.

Front-Face Effects

The New Epic Toms Ensemble also contains an entire new set of effects on the front of the user interface. You have instant control over dynamics, filters, pitch and micro-pitch, delays, bit-crusher and our new textural convolution delay called transform, which contains over 130 custom textural delays. You also have control over microphones and EQ, which are placed on the sides of the effects section.

Chaos FX 3.4

Our new 3.4 FX CHAOS Engine gives you deep access to Filters, Step-Based Filter Sequencer, EQ, Bit-Crusher, Distortion, Dual-Stereo Delay, Convolution Reverb and our new expanded Transform section, which now contains over 130 impulses, including our new textural convolutions. The 3.4 FX CHAOS Engine also allows you to randomize each effect with a single click.
