Hand Held Sound FlyingHand Percussion Virtual Percussion Library at a Glance:
FlyingHand Percussion includes a proprietary and unique technique that intelligently responds to musical phrases, inserting musical nuances and tonal variances that provide an added level of authenticity. The result sounds very much like a real percussionist when they hit the drum in a slightly different place each time or moves a hand across the drum head creating a small scraping sound, etc.
You need to be able to play a percussion library with your own hands and have it sound real. So, all FlyingHand instruments are keymapped for playability and remain consistent throughout all instruments, which not only results in real sounding tracks, but allows for fast production. Includes custom keymappings for the Zendrum MIDI Controller.
Virtual room impulses
FlyingHand Percussion through the entire recording process from initial input to final mix. Included are custom-made stereo and surround room and hall impulses. These are delivered in a special edition of the PsP Audioware Nitro Filterbank plugin, which puts your percussion tracks exactly where you want to hear them in your mix.
Recorded with care
FlyingHand Percussion samples were recorded with 24-bit, 44.1kHz audio fidelity, and captured with Neumann, Earthworks, Shure, and AKG microphones and high-end preamps including the very sweet Demeter VTMP-2C. Recording spaces were specially modified for perfect blending of the existing acoustics with the raw sound of the instrument. Each instrument was captured from multiple microphones and mixed into a perfect blend of natural ambience and high-end detail. Up to 3 microphone configurations per instrument are included for your choosing.

Four Anklungs - Asian bamboo rattlers

REALISM AT ITS FINEST (PERCUSSION STYLE)
by Austin from Los AngelesI have used many samples and libraries in my day and there are only a few that I would describe as "go to." After working with and hearing Flying Hand Percussion I have a new go to percussion library.... read more [+] It's so realistic and seemless you'd never know it wasn't a live player! What makes this library so special is that it has completely eliminated the machine gun effect. It's technically flawless. Another aspect that puts this way ahead is similar to why Vienna Symphonic Library is so amazing. They place great importance on the time and sounds between notes. This is so important to realism that is hardly ever done. Flying hand has done this with percussion using many velocity layers, alternate samples and huge left hand/right hand variations so it'll never have that dreaded mechanical sound. If you're serious about sampling, composing, producing, or whatever else you have to have this! close [-]
