Thoughts


Need tight and punchy taikos? How about blazing hot hybrid taikos with plenty of grit and processing?

With Hybrid Studio Taiko you get both! Hybrid Studio Taiko includes an easy-to-use Kontakt Player interface that allows you to quickly dial in a blend of natural and hybrid taiko samples. In seconds, you can go from tight, crisp studio recordings to over-hyped hybrid taikos with boom and grit. However, Fallout Music Group has made it even easier than that with a great collection of snapshot presets with multiple natural and hybrid mix types already tweaked, set up, and ready to use.

Above all, I think my favorite part of this library is the thoughtfulness that went into the keyboard layout. Most drum libraries out there crowd all the samples into a narrow key range, driving finger drumming composers like me a little crazy, as our left and right hands fumble over each other while trying to access multiple drum sounds. Within 3 of the 4 patches, Fallout Music Group solved this problem in the most intuitive and simplistic way – they mapped the exact same samples 2 octaves apart. This is both incredibly more ergonomic and simply more fun. Instead of finger fumbling, you can engage in some epic finger drumming. The only patch that doesn’t include this intuitive feature is the full patch, but that’s likely due to the number of keys needed to map out the extensive number of sounds on offer. Double-mapping the full patch would probably not accommodate the needs of most composers, who likely work with smaller controllers. Hybrid Studio Taiko is a great taiko library that can easily blend into, or become the star of, your epic action and trailer tracks.
