I kind of asked the same question in an indirect way a week ago or so. There is MUCH still not sampled in percussion, and I would like them all, heh heh. Roto toms were mentioned, but I would like those large diameter (timpani size) Rotos sampled, and if all the virtual orchestra types heard them, there would be a loud clamor of \"Yes! Yes! Get those sampled!\". Percussion seems to be growing in importance these days, so the more the better.
A refresher of what I wrote previously:
\"...The Blade II movie DVD comes with a very interesting \"Extras\" disk. If you go to the \"Bloodpack Index\", then go to item 8 \"Vampire Nocturnes (The Music Score)\", there is a very lengthily segment featuring an interview with the composer, a three-way conversation between the director, composer and orchestrater, a few segments of an orchestra session, and a long recording section of orchestral percussion...
I found the percussion session very interesting. I was impressed with how much space and room was in the percussion sounds, not unlike the g-town stuff. In particular I really liked the sound of the large diameter roto-toms (tampani sized). They also include a whole list of all percussion used and explanation of what they are. Find this list in the \"Branching Scene Index\", item 5.\"
