    Hollywood bass drum sound produce by Hans Zimmer ?

    hey all, does anyone know what kind of sample does Hans Zimmer or other Hollywood file music composer are using for bass drum ? I try to use orchestra bass drum to reproduce similar sound, but it is impossible to make it right, does anyone know some "non-real" synth bass drum program/sample that could be use to make heavy bassy sound ? Thanks.

    Yeah, I was never able to replicate Blade Runner's bass drums either.

    Doesn't he use Taikos for that?

    Vangelis does, definitely. I actually have a killer taiko patch stock in my cheapo Roland S-90. It's probably in the Fantoms as well.

    You should give us the score where you have heard those bass drums, may be it's another instrument


    edit : In The Thin Red Line for example, he uses taikos in "Journey To the Line" track

    Not in Blade Runner. It sounds synthetic, but I can't duplicate it with noise (pink nor white).

    Now I don't know what filmscore you're refering to but it's two (or more) bass drums playing together is extraordinally powerful!

    There are several possibilities. Two bass drums; bass timpani; combination of bass timpani and 1 or 2 bass drums; large taiko(s); large koto drums or a combination of the exotic and standard orchestra instruments...

    There are several libraries, particularly Stormdrum and the Taikos from Rare Instruments that may be exactly what you are looking for.

    Hope this helps...
