THUNDER SPRINGS is a collection of 450+ rare and mutilated Instruments & Multis derived entirely from recordings of the signature cinematic sound of Spring Drums & Thunder Tubes. Weighing in at over 3GBs, THUNDER SPRINGS not only includes amazing, ready-to-play, psychoacoustically sampled Spring Drums & Thunder Tubes, but uses these instruments to enter into the morphed world of score-ready hybrid percussion.
Spring Drums and Thunder Tubes are small drums with a long coiled spring attached. These percussive instruments are designed in multiple shapes and sizes that create unique timbres sounding like a blend between thunder, a gong, and a dijeridoo. In developing THUNDER SPRINGS, Sample Logic was able to hunt down every size drum produced, many of which are no longer in circulation.
Sample Logic went well beyond standard performance and recording techniques with the Spring Drum and Thunder Tube instruments. Along with standard multisampling, they also used hammers, chains, crowbars, saws, and stretched the springs to capture insane timbres that have never been heard with these drums. From this material, Sample Logic was able to craft the most beautiful dynamic and original acoustic cinematic sounds possible.
THUNDER SPRINGS spectacular user interface was designed with the composer and sound designer in mind, providing effortless control for complete user customization. The core of THUNDER SPRINGS is focused around the user experience, providing the freedom to infinitely transform samples into impressive twisted evolving instruments with endless possibilities.
