A Full Studio of Percussion

Studio Percussion Auxiliary contains 72 different instruments and 3 microphone positions that are all easily accessed from our built-in browser. The instruments cover a wide range of auxiliary percussion (ex. Congas, Bongos, Cowbells, Shakers, Maracas) to ethnic percussion (ex. Frame Drums, Timbales, Darbuka, Udu, Djembe, Doumbek, Cajon). You also have full drum kits with a large assortment of snares, bass drums, hi-hats and 11 cymbals. In addition, we included some traditional orchestral instruments (ex. Concert Bass Drum, Timpani’s, 6 different Tubular Bells etc) and many other instruments.

Most instruments in Aura Studio Percussion were also recorded with two different types of mallets, sticks and brushes. Imagine playing a massive Concert Bass Drum with brushes or Bongos with sticks. Maybe you want to play the Doumbek with brushes, while creating another part with brushed Tubular Bells.

Studio Percussion Auxiliary also contains a large assortment of ensemble kits, so you can play larger assortments of different instruments at the same time. We’ve included 8 full drum kits in different styles (ex. Pop, Rock, Funk), 2 Ethnic Kits, 8 Tonal Kits and 7 Cinematic Ensemble Kits, including Deep Kits, Epic Kits, Shakers and Cymbal Kits etc.

It all comes with 3 microphone positions (Close, Mid, Room), each with their own distinct sound. We’ve also included a new dual layered FX system. The first part is our front-face FX system that gives you control over dynamics, filters, pitch and micro-pitch, delay, bit-resolution, and our new textural convolution delay. The new textural delay allows you to take over 130 new convolutions and use them as delay components, so the instrument will delay other sounds than just itself. We’ve also included our new Chaos FX 3.4 engine, which gives you great control over things such as EQ, Step-Based Filter, Distortion, Stereo-Delay and an additional convolution reverb.

It has always been our mantra to push forward for realism and playability. Studio Percussion Auxiliary is the first of several to utilize our proprietary Groove Sampling™ method and we really think it is going to make compositions richer and easier to create.





The New Groove Sampling™

The core of Studio Percussion Auxiliary is our new, patent-pending Groove Sampling techniques™. The library comes with traditional multi-samples in addition to groove samples, so you can play and mix them side by side. The Groove Samples can be controlled on your modwheel or via our new Mod-Sequencer. You will never go back after trying them!
