What is TENSION SNARE?
A long march, an epic uphill battle, or a counterattack launched on the enemy. What do these all have in common musically? Most likely, a powerful snare drum! TENSION SNARE is a very suitable snare library which has been competitively priced and contains a very rich and epic sounding snare which has been mastered to sound more like an ensemble. TENSION SNARE is a great additional to any composers arsenal!

5 Kontakt Instruments included with TENSION SNARE:
This is the main patch of the library and is a basic pearl snare recorded in a theater so it has a nice rich ambiance. Overall it has a deep timbre perfect for all of your cinematic snare needs and is very aggressive in sound. There are even short rolls mapped to the upper end of the keyboard.
This patch is once again from the same snare recording but has been pitched up slightly to make it sound more like a piccolo snare.
Stemming from the same recording, this patch has been pitch shifted down slightly as well as EQ'ed to give it a much more lower end timbre.
The first of the EXTRA patches included with this library which have been sound designed to sound like something much different than a snare drum. In the case of this patch, it is meant to sound like a set of concert toms... and succeeds.
The second of the EXTRA patches included with this library which have been sound designed to sound like something much different than a snare drum. In the case of this patch, it is meant to sound like a bass drum.. and would be great for an orc onslaught.
