Solo Taiko Drums is the most comprehensive set of deep-sampled Taikos on the market – containing over 4.200 samples and 3.9GB. The library contains several larger Taikos (O-Daiko) down to a wide variety of smaller Taikos (Shimes) and everything in between. Solo Taiko Drum contains 60 different recordings of Taiko Drums and was recorded in two microphone perspectives (close and far). The two microphone positions allows you to sculpt a larger sound and potentially render Taiko in a surround environment too. The Solo Taikos also contains a variety of alternative articulations like different stick types, taikos played with hands, rimshots and clacks. In addition we also added a bonus sample set of Cannon Barrel sounds. It is common for Taiko ensemble to supplement the Taikos by playing on a metal barrel, which evidently symbolizes the barrel of a cannon.
Solo Taiko Drum truly covers the Taiko Drum family in-depth. The library was recorded in the same signature hall used for our Epic Taiko Ensemble 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.
