Checking Out: Hans Zimmer Percussion by Spitfire Audio


It is amazing to have the same great sounds from Zimmer’s blockbuster scores mixed by the master himself right at your fingertips. I rarely have such high praise for percussion libraries, but there is magic in this instrument.

Checking Out: Hans Zimmer Percussion by Spitfire Audio

Spitfire has teamed up with the hottest name in film scoring at this time, Mr. Hans Zimmer. Together with the composer extraordinaire, the developer has packaged up the samples from thier HZ01 and HZ03 libraries into the new Hans Zimmer Percussion Kontakt Player instrument.

The library downloads as 19.56 GB (from 48.5 GB of losslessly compressed samples) and contains a sample set of drum ensembles and solo instruments including Booms, Taiko, Tamtam, Boobams, Bass Drum, Gong Surdu, Dohl, Tombek, Buckets, Snares, Darbuka, Paper Djun, Piatti, Anvils & Timpani.

The library was recording using the same studio, musicians, instruments, signal chain and engineer as Zimmer has used on dozens of his blockbuster scores and to top it off, the playback mixes were personally mixed by Hans himself.

Highlights of the liner notes:

  • The recording sessions for the instrument took place in world famous AIR Studios
  • New GUI created for the instrument is very easy to jump around in and customize
  • Contain Close, Room, and Surround microphone playback options
  • Kontakt Player Instrument and NKS-ready
