While the expansions cover all angles of the drum kit and Latin percussion, one area has hitherto gone unexplored: orchestral percussion. Realising with excitement that here was another large collection of things that you can hit with a stick, the Toontrack sound-design team returned to the main hall of Galaxy Studios in Mol, Belgium, the same location used to record the Superior Drummer 3 core sound library (and incidentally, the studio used for the spiffing Galaxy Steinway 5.1 grand piano).


For this project the company enlisted specialist help in the shape of producer Patrick Lemmens, a classically trained musician with a background in orchestral engineering and mixing. The instruments were played by members of the Ouderits family: dad Leo and sons Tim and Tom, all classically trained percussionists. This musical clan were united in naming the snare drum as their favourite instrument, which may have further endeared them to Toontrack.

There are literally hundreds of instruments that are considered orchestral percussion. If you could pick only one, which one is your favorite, both in terms of its sound and to play in general?Leo: Snare drumTim: Snare drumTom: Snare drum
