Not-so-Quick Facts

The timpani are perhaps best known from their bold appearance in Also Sprach Zarathustra. As one of the few pitched membranophones, they play and integral role in the orchestral percussion section. We have balanced the samples out across velocities and notes to create a highly playable instrument with a broad dynamic range and an exceptionally punchy top velocity.

This instrument is not included in VSCO 2. An all-new timpani sampling was conducted for that library.

Timpani v1.2

  •  Versilian Studios Virtual Instruments﷯

The Timpani, also known as Kettle Drums, are a set of 3-5 large, bowl-shaped drums tuned to pitches that create a strong, resonant sound. Although this instrument is a bit older of a sampling compared to the timpani in VSCO 2, it has a very punchy and powerful sound.
