Japanese Taiko Percussion: expansion pack for BFD2.1

Finally a library of powerful and majestic taiko sounds! Sonica has teamed up with FXpansion to bring the world of Taiko from their native land into BFD2.1.

Traditional Taiko
Taiko groups have wowed audiences the world over with their visually arresting performances, earth-rumbling bass, pure percussive volume, dynamics, and rhythm. The unmistakable taiko sound has also gained acceptance in many applications far removed from traditional Japanese music. And yet the taiko — the king of Japanese traditional instruments — has been missing from the ranks of professional sound libraries. SONICA Instruments at last brings you the sound of the taiko in a carefully crafted FXpansion BFD2.1 library.

Taiko Performance
Japanese Taiko Percussion is the result of a fruitful collaboration between two creative forces. The taiko were played by Ikki Hino, leader of Wataiko Ikki, a taiko performance group that has toured the globe. Ikki’s unparalleled stick work lends stunning definition and character to every taiko beat.

The sounds of Taiko
The sound library was produced by Tomzuin H, a sound creator and composer who has been responsible for such professional sampling libraries as the FUEL series. Working from a meticulously laid-out plan with a focus on taiko ensemble playing, Tomzuin H painstakingly recorded and produced the Japanese Taiko Percussion expansion pack.
Uncompromising performances, recording, and authoring have led to a sound library that perfectly captures the real energy and quality of taiko.
