This is a small loop following the culmination of hours of recording and mixing various tribal drum samples (and kitchen implements) as well as field recordings and a couple of reverb impulse responses.

This particular loop began with the humble less than spectacular sound of me hitting a bucket with a wooden spoon which is now somewhat buried in the mix.

The idea was to layer, mix, pan and re-pitch samples together that complemented each other to create the sound of a huge tribal drum performance, similar to the style used in many video game and movie scores, most notably that of Hans Zimmer. There are also a couple of subtle layers blended in from Spitfire Audio's HZ percussion library.

I hope you enjoy it!

Please comment or message me with what you do with this loop, I'd love to hear!

For some reason the preview sounds like it has some strange transcoding audio artefacts, however if you download the original wav file you'll find it pristine and clear as I intended.

    Will probably use it for a game's battle theme

    Philgyford, thanks for letting me know, that's pretty cool! I'll have to check out where it was used in the show! :)

    Did you know this is used in episode 5 of 'Derry Girls' on Channel 4? You're listed in the credits at the end of the show.
