    marimbas, xylophones, log drums.

    IS there a library that focuses on pit percussion like this?

    VSL Percussion has everything you listed, and is also the largest percussion library I\'m aware of for orch stuff. Beautiful beautiful stuff. VERY happy I bought it.

    VSL Mallets is amazing ,though no log drum..you`d be looking at Heart of Africa maybe?

    Thanks guys. All I\'ve been hearing about lately is EWQL. When I first saw VSL I thought it was gonna be really good. So how do the 2 measure up, in regards to perc, brass, and strings?

    VSL percussion is very good stuff. Highly recommended!! I\'m scoring probably 80% of my current project with it...just did an entire scene with nothing but various bowed percussion, and it\'s all I could have hoped for!!

    I love Ultimate Marimba and Vibes by Christian + Lane:

    Bruce and Devon,

    Are you guys referring to the VSL First, or Pro Edition, or both? (regarding the percussion being so good)

    VSL First is very good, but from what I can see they hit a homerun with Pro (I\'ll be upgrading within the next few months.) The first edition percussion is top drawer - very authenic.

    Yes, Pro is very good, and I did start with First as well, which is also very good.

    I was actually quite disappointed with QLSO\'s Percussion in regards to lack of variety specifically. I would have figured there would be more.

    And yes, there is log drums in VSL. Check the articulation list.

    Log drum - PRO - Log drum, played with soft, medium, hard, and wood mallets, single hits and tremolos.

    It\'s near the bottom of the articulation list.

    To me, the sound is amazing, all of it. I just really wanted the waterphone for the effects. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Instant horror film sound track. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I didn\'t find any \'stinkers\' in the bunch, IMHO.
