East West Stormdrum 3 v1.0.4-DECiBEL screenshot
Team DECiBEL | 14 Jan 2022 | 83.30GB
Featuring huge cinematic drums and percussion from around the world, you won't find a collection as complete as Stormdrum 3. Designed for film and game composers looking to create bombastic and thunderous percussion, Stormdrum 3 delivers more power than you could ever ask for. And even when you want subtle, tame, more ambient drums and metal hits, it places all of this and more in your arsenal.

The true potency of Stormdrum 3 is that it enables you to craft a fantastic musical story of any culture, any era, in any context. A documentary of the Amazon rainforest would be incomplete without deep tribal drums, and an intense sci-fi thriller featuring a heart-pounding speeder chase wouldn't be the same without futuristic, designed auxiliary percussion. Stormdrum 3 gives you vivid realism, clean recordings, and maximum strike on every hit. We put all of our focus entirely on designing the perfect tool to architect cinematic experiences on command. Whenever your stream of ideas begins to dry up and you begin forcing yourself to continue composing, Stormdrum 3 will jumpstart your inspiration with a bang.

Mickey Hart (of The Grateful Dead) brought his private collection to Studio 1, in tandem with the Remo company. The producers recorded an arsenal of drums, woods and metals hand-selected by one of the world's greatest percussionists over his career. "In SD3, our focus was to capture Mickey's unrivaled percussion collection in the best possible multi-sampled way. It is very flexible. And note that even the close mix comprises the input from 8 microphones. This virtual instrument is his legacy, and mine as well," says producer Nick Phoenix.

The Holy Grail of taiko samples, these instruments were recorded from taiko drums in the collections of Mickey Hart, Remo, and the top taiko builders in Japan. Boasting individual hits as well as full ensemble strikes, Stormdrum 3 gives you the best source material possible to add a realistic taiko ensemble to your music.

Large, deep, and booming, this collection comprises the heavy backbone of Stormdrum 3, not including taikos. With names like The Beast, Lord Of Toms, and Dragon Ensemble, you should get a sense of the raw power in Mickey's one-of-a-kind drum collection.

Mechanical and detailed, this is the perfection collection for you if you enjoy adding subtle, barely-noticeable layers that your music. One of the coolest highlights is a set of recordings from 6 antique clock shops, perfect for creating complex rhythms without cluttering your percussion section.

You get access to the many bells, deep bowls, chimes, and cymbals collected by Mickey on his world travels. This unique collection includes everything from handmade doorstop drums and hammered copper pots to the Brazilian berimbau, played on a metal wire. If you like using a lot of auxiliary or "odd" percussion, this collection alone makes Stormdrum 3 an excellent investment.

An assortment of uncommon objects: ganza, rainsticks, snake rattles, seed pods, and even deer hooves from Mickey's private collection.

The classics: bongos, frame drums, tambourines. The slightly more obscure: tablas, madal, and many more. Clean performances across all instruments, captured by microphones that allow the most brilliant high-end details to shine through. These may be the most fun collection of all to play.

Unusual wooden percussion from all over the world, including: unpitched wooden resonators to the chromatic gourd marimba and balaphone, the mighty gourd drum, a playable 12 ft. long redwood tree branch, and scraped Thailand frogs.

Stormdrum 3 was recorded in Studio One, the same location as Hollywood Orchestra, allowing them to blend seamlessly in a single mix. The library includes 5 microphone positions, including: Close (set of 8 Neumanns and Sennheisers), Mid (mid tree, 15 ft), HiFi (super-clean and modern, 15 ft), Main (Neumann M50 Decca tree, 20-25 ft), and Vintage (RCA ribbons, 25 ft). You can blend these different tones and positions as you choose into a single composite sound.

If I had composer cloud before and already downloaded these libraries in the past and I have them on my PC, do i have to download everything again or is it enough to just install R2R play/Opus and copy the cracked license files included in these releases for installation?
I guess what I'm asking,,is the samples folder in any way way changed from the original or not.

Thank you R2R & DECiBEL!

Everything under "XY Instruments" and "XY Samples" seems to be identical.
The cracked files are in the R2R rp. DECiBEL folder.
So yes, there seems to be a redundancy but I'm not sure if we can handle it easily because there is no way to download the cracked files only.
  Member 17.03.2019 2 73
Thanks for the info!
Yeah that's a bummer..Hopefully someone(R2R, DECiBELLE) sees this and starts uploading crack on separate link.
  Member 13.08.2021 86
I'd like to know that officially too!
And also if there's a way to run both k and non k simultaneously?

I'm suspecting the sample folders ARE the same, but I can't prove it until I stop paying now.

I went from K to paid, and most libraries samples just get used. A few take a few seconds to update, but it seems literally a few updates.

All I needed to do was use the LOCATE library button on the EW installer to go to paid.

None of my K libraries have had to re-download afaik.

The chunks & programs folder and the app itself, seem to be what need patching to K them.

Also consider that the K only has PLAY "right now" and the paid has OPUS WITH the orchestral engine.

Thanks for the info!
Yes but considering that in every release It states that we need R2R Play/Opus to play libraries, i’m sure Opus is just around the corner☺️ For me I have few of the main libraries that I need so i only need the cracked installation files and cracked opus so i can get off the composer cloud until I invest and buy the thing.(I.e. until I can afford it)
I think I’ve read in one of the R2R nfo’s that you can’t have both legit and cracked at the same time.

Does anyone know if SD3 includes SD2 library? Can I drop SD2?
  Resident 10.11.2010 3 139
No they are different.

Even after all those years and a couple of Damages taken, this is still a classic!

a playable 12 ft. long redwood tree branch, and scraped Thailand frogs

That made me chuckle. I wonder if the frogs mind.
  Member 20.05.2014 618
Sorry to ask, but what do you think about those East West libs ? For ex SD3 Demo trailer is lacking dynamic, don't you think ? Ministry of rock demos don't blow my mind either. I wish I could try but 83 GB !! is it really worthing it ? thanks for your advise.
[EDIT] Some soundcloud demos sound cool !

It's free and unless in live in Somalia, this take 20 minutes to download.

The general consensus among the small composers club is that with Berlin, Cinesamples and ProjectSam you're pretty much 95% covered. Think about expanding when you finish them, but even then, maybe to Spitfire
  Resident 10.11.2010 3 139
I've had this library for years. It made me money. The clients loved the work. So they will do the job. Need more dynamic? Mix them

Thanks for sharing, and I'm very thankful for uploaded DL-links (using real-debrid)

Oh god. Soon we have a 200 Gig library that produces some handclaps recorded with 250 different positioned mics.

You forgot: 150 Round Robin + 127 dynamic variations per velocity number (0-127) + 32 bit 192Khz samples

Hmmm, maybe somewhere between 500-600gb.
  Member 21.04.2018 66
thanx for the post, but 83gb's?
not going to happen.

Guys, is Opus included in this package?
  Resident 14.08.2020 5 123
No, we still have to wait for it.
  Resident 14.08.2020 5 123
There are some really good sounds here. The Dragon Ens Hits patches alone have given me inspiration for a new epic orchestral track
