    Looking for big ol' drums to go well with an orchestra

    I'm looking for basically the same kind of percussion you can find in Lord of the Rings.. big, booming percussion.. all kinds of drums, metal hits, things like that. All I have is LOP and it's not cutting it..

    Thanks

    Well, the obvious answer is Stormdrum. I don't use the loop stuff, but the multi-samples are awesome and there a tons of them.

    Stormdrum + EWQLSO Platinum percussion is the magic duo for that.

    OK cool... so, Stormdrum isn't too electronic or techno for orchestral then. I'll have to add it to my to-purchase list Right after SAM Trumpets. But then I have to decide.. Opus 1, or Stormdrum? Hmmmm...

    I would propose that you buy both
    I use the SD and this is really what you´re looking for. In condition to the orchestra library who have to find out what is better for you to handle with. Opus1 or EWQLSO. Both are great.

    Oh there's no question about Opus 1 vs. EWQLSO. I'm getting Opus 1 for sure, I need to have the true legato. I'm just wondering if I am in more need of true legato instruments, or some kickass percussion.

    Agreed - having both will get you there as far as increasing the dynamic range of your mockups.
