Musical Sampling

Musical Sampling - Boutique Drums Medusa

Modern Ensemble Drum Library

Medusa is a modern ensemble drum library created for trailer producers as well as film, game and television composers. Musical Sampling also made it a point to smack the living snot out of the drums for the top velocities. Couldn't really be in that room without a good set of closed cans if you valued your hearing. Blisters weren't uncommon either.

Getting the mix presets dialed-in was just as crucial and took the most time during Medusa's production cycle to really get right. Hermes is a tight, punchy mix. Centaur is the all-rounder while Zeus takes excellent advantage of the room tone. The Gorgon mix is a hyped, massive, punchy mix designed specifically for trailers. It's yuuuge.

Also included is an arsenal of playable sound design patches which include drones, keys, guitars, basses, synths, cue starters, etc. -- all kinds of material for you to start rippin' tracks right out the gate. No fluff or afterthoughts here either. Musical Sampling recorded a lot of new source material and built these puppies from the ground-up.
