The Recording

The library was recorded by our friend and musician Danilo Cafolla, in the Rocchi Studios in Rome. 

We used only top-end gear, and we searched for unique sounds and effects.

This library comes with two microphone positions.

The library provides also all the fine-sampling techniques, like round robin, dynamic modwheel and vertical layering.
