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:

CT_TensionSnare_A_TheLongMarch.nki
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.

CT_TensionSnare_B_HoldTheLine.nki
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.

CT_TensionSnare_C_FuneralPyre.nki
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.

CT_TensionSnare_XTRA_AlmostToms.nki
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.

CT_TensionSnare_XTRA_Warcry.nki
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.
