SD2 â The Next Generation is a stunning collection of exceptional acoustic percussion instruments. The exclusive selection of drums and percussions exceeds all other existing libraries out there. As a sequel to Stormdrum (which was the most successful acoustic percussion library ever released.) it sets new standards that will exceed the expectations of everyone who owns a Quantum Leap product. Combined with the brand new developed Eastwest Play sample engine, a must to have with no doubt.
SD2 - The Next Generation is a completely new and improved concept that is destined to become the new standard for years to come.. Instead of loops you get access to midi performances created with Roland VDrums and Zendrum percussion controllers. You get MIDI performances of over 100 film score oriented midi performances, each with dozens of variations, intros and endings from bombastic to hypnotic. The software in the Next Generation allows for millions of variations of each midi performance.
What this means is that you can change ANYTHING with no sound degradation. Want to slow it down from 120 BPM to 50 BPM? Simply change the tempo of your sequence. Want to change the tone to something more aggressive, or something more subtle? Simply change the dynamics and marvel as 24 velocity multi-sampled percussion creates a completely new sound. Want to tune, add effects or filters to specific drums? No problem. Want to mute specific sounds and play in your own parts using the same sounds? No problem. Sound replacement? No problem. Like the sound of a performance, but don't like the rhythm? Simply use the current multi to create your own rhythms.
Powered by Eastwest's Play 64-bit (and 32-bit) Advanced Sample Engine with built-in Network Control (plug-in or standalone). This virtual instrument combines intuitive handling with excellent sound quality, and functions as a plug-in instrument, without the need for a sampler.

SD2 is a great set of epic and ethnic drums that is simply a must have for film, tv, and video game composers. If you're looking for "those epic movie drums," these are it! But also included are some great sounding ethnic drums as well... As a side note, though, some of the panning of the drums can be a little strange...just something to be aware of as you're putting them in your mix.
