Stickbreakers Vol 3
Stickbreakers Vol 3 – Sync’d Cymbals Plus has been created for composers that need tempo sync-able crescendo rolls, dynamic controllable rolls, a wide range of hit types, and bow, brush and “swipe” effect sounds.

Most sound libraries that offer cymbal crescendo rolls present several issues: there aren’t enough, the length and/or dynamics aren’t always right, and they slow the composer’s work flow by forcing the micro-management of sample and MIDI start times.

To address these issues, four of the seven cymbals sampled for Stickbreakers Vol 3 offer tempo-sync’d crescendo rolls ranging from one to eight beats AND dynamic controllable rolls using the modwheel. With these options, it is only a matter of hitting a key in time with the track to get the crescendo’s apex in just the right place.

Beyond the sync’d rolls, Stickbreakers’ seven cymbals offer a broad range of articulations, including: soft mallet hits, stick hits, brush hits, piatti and piatti with performed chokes.

And creating cues requiring tension, mystery or a sci-fi feel are made easy by the inclusion of well organized and simple-to-use sound menus of bowed, brushed and scraped cymbals (and a gong, too!).

With a clear and beautiful sound, Stickbreakers Vol 3 allows composers to work with cymbals easier, faster and with greater control.
