Cymbal Rolls is a huge collection of rolls performed at a variety of speeds on a selection of cymbals, ranging in size from 14" all the way up 28".

A range of mallets were used to perform rolls of varying intensity, making this the perfect collection of cymbal rolls for composers and producers.

The Ultimate Cymbal Roll Collection Using Multiple Mallets & Cymbals
When creating Cymbal Rolls, the aim was to create the ultimate collection of cymbal roll sounds that composers and producers need for productions (available in both Kontakt and standalone .WAV format)

In order to do that, we decided to record a huge variety of cymbal types and sizes (in crystal clear 24 bit / 96KHz) at a range of velocities and intensity levels, using a number of different mallets, sticks and beaters.

14" Sultan Hi Hat
15" Mystery Cymbal
16" Alchemy Crash
16" Power Crash
16" Sweet Crash
18" Sultan China
18" Traditional Crash
19" Medium Crash
19" Traditional Crash
20" Ride
21" Crash
21" Jazz Ride
21" Flat Ride
21" Turk Ride
22" Agop Turk China
22" Alchemy Ride
24" Sultan Ride
28" Factory Metal

Each cymbal was played at various tempos and with various sticks/beaters such as large and medium mallets, scrapes and super ball mallets. A variety of rolls were also recorded including short rolls, medium rolls, long rolls, soft rolls, loud rolls etc.

Cymbal Rolls was engineered and recorded by the incredible sound designer Rick Allen. The percussionist Jon Mattox (endorsed by Istanbul Agop Cymbals) who has worked on a huge range of films, trailers, TV shows and video games.

I can't imagine anything's gonna beat Symphobia 4 or Jaeger for precision rolls, but you never know. Plus, these seem mostly focused on regular drum kits, rather than orchestral cymbals, so they might end up being pretty useful ...

Jaeger doesn't have piatti rolls, only hits IIRC.

Thanks DECiBELLE for this great one, now that I see it I wonder why so few companies offer cymbal rolls.
