The Quintessential Epic Drums 

The Epic Taiko Ensemble is the most comprehensive and deep-sampled collection of large-scale Epic Taiko on the market. The library is a completely remastered, redesigned, and reprogrammed edition of our original Epic Taiko Ensemble, containing over 2,900 samples, two microphone positions, a built-in articulation browser, internal step-sequencer, front-face effects, textural convolutions, and our newest 3.4 Chaos Engine. 

The Epic Taiko Ensemble features the highly renowned Taiko Ensemble group Emeryville Taiko, lead by master Susan Horn. The recordings lasted over a week, which allowed us to capture an unprecedented amount of content. There are four main categories of samples: Multi-sampled Taiko Ensemble (10 round robin for all articulations), Live Loops, other sounds associated with Taiko (ex. ensemble screams, yells, yell-hits, percussive cannon “Tekkan”), and presets. 

 We sampled all the classic Taiko drums, including the booming O-daiko, Nagado Daiko, and the smaller and more snare like Shime-daiko. We also played the drums with hands and alternative stick types, capturing the most comprehensive collection of clacks made with different type of sticks and by hitting the rims of the larger Taiko drums. 





Integrated Browser

The Epic Taiko Ensemble contains an integrated browser that gives you instant access to the whole collection. The browser allows you find any articulation in the library with a single click and no extra load-time. The browser also gives you access to master articulations where you have all the Taiko laid out on the keyboard for maximum control, ease of use, and instant fun.

Internal Sequencing

Epic Taiko Ensemble

The Epic Taiko Ensemble comes with a built-in step-sequencer, allowing you to program the ensemble with ultra-precision. The step-sequencer allows you to create advanced rhythms in any signature rhythm and with velocity layering and round-robins. In addition, you can choose the tempo and even play in triplets. 


The Epic Taiko Ensemble contains an entire new set of effects on the front of the user interface. You have instant control over dynamics, filters, pitch, delay, 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 on the sides of the effects section.
