SD2 — The Next Generation is a stunning collection of exceptional acoustic percussion instruments.
The exclusive selection of drums and percussions exceeds all other existing libraries out there. As a sequel to Stormdrum
(which was the most successful acoustic percussion library ever released.) it sets new standards that will exceed the expectations
of everyone who owns a Quantum Leap product. Combined with the brand new developed Eastwest Play sample engine, a must to
have with no doubt.
SD2 - The Next Generation is a completely new and improved concept that is destined to become the
new standard for years to come.. Instead of loops you get access to midi performances created with Roland VDrums and Zendrum
percussion controllers. You get MIDI performances of over 100 film score oriented midi performances, each with dozens of variations,
intros and endings from bombastic to hypnotic. The software in the Next Generation allows for millions of variations of each
What this means is that you can change ANYTHING with no sound degradation. Want to slow it down from
120 BPM to 50 BPM? Simply change the tempo of your sequence. Want to change the tone to something more aggressive, or something
more subtle? Simply change the dynamics and marvel as 24 velocity multi-sampled percussion creates a completely new sound.
Want to tune, add effects or filters to specific drums? No problem. Want to mute specific sounds and play in your own parts
using the same sounds? No problem. Sound replacement? No problem. Like the sound of a performance, but don't like the rhythm?
Simply use the current multi to create your own rhythms.
