MPCsounds.com announced "Orchestral Percussion", a new sound library for the Akai MPC1000/2000/XL/3000/LE/4000 drum machines.

Nearly a $100k worth of orchestral percussion instruments were rounded up to create this new MPC library. Recorded digitally in a concert hall with virtuoso musicians, this new library offers a large set of orchestral percussion samples!

The full "Orchestral Percussion" instruments list includes: Drums (concert snare and piccolo snare, concert bass drum, concert toms, tympani), Cymbals (crash cymbal, piatti cymbals, splash cymbal, ride cymbal, tam-tam gong, and automobile brake drum), Tuned percussion (glockenspiel, marimba, xylophone, and orchestral chimes), and Orchestral percussion (claves, woodblock, castanets, jam block, tambourine, agogo bells, sleigh bells, slapstick, bell tree, vibraslap, temple blocks, cowbell, cabasa, and shakers).

Turbo versions of the "Orchestral Percussion" library are offered on MPC CD-ROM and Zip disks, while regular versions are available on Floppy or as Downloadable sets (Mac & PC supported). Turbo versions contain more instruments, with many more articulations and longer samples. Some programs require expanded memory, but pared-down versions are also included for users with stock 2 Meg memory.

The "Orchestral Percussion" library is available on MPC CD-ROM, Zip disk, Floppy, or as Downloadable sets. Prices start at $29.95.
