LA Modern Percussion by Audio Ollie - Recorded & Mixed By A Master

Alan Meyerson is undoubtedly one of the most iconic scoring mixers in the world. Credits including Gladiator, Blackhawk Down, The Blood Diamond, Transformers and Man of Steel, the man’s name has become synonymous with larger than life percussion sounds.

Including toms, bass drums, tupans, surdos, taikos, daikos, djuns djuns, dumbeks, gran casa, piatti, rotos, all with a variety of sticks, brushes, and mallets.

Recorded at the iconic Warner Bros Eastwood Stage in Los Angles. This room is particularly well suited for percussion because of it’s large yet controlled ambiance. Venue to scores such as Man of Steel, Mad Max Fury Road, & Transformers, all of which are particularly known for their massive percussion.


Among a premium selection of dynamic, condenser and ribbon mics, Alan Meyerson also brought his collection of priceless vintage mics. Each player in the ensemble had a matched set of close mics and the room ambiance was captured with a mid room, decca tree, wide, and ambient set up.

Sculpt, Process & Layer

LA Modern Percussion was designed to be sculpted, processed, & layered into larger than life, fully produced drum ensembles. Included in the library are over 100 presets (multis) which take the original drum recordings to the next level.

The library features an advanced groove engine allowing users to craft detailed percussion beds entirely within Kontakt. With powerful features such as dynamic step modulation, you can fully control and ‘play’ the rhythms like a real, expressive instrument.

The user interface was designed specifically around Meyerson’s mixing workflow and includes multiple mix types, creative presets, transient align controls, dual band AHDSR, bus FX routing and a drum specific FX chain.

    Really tight and modern as the name suggests. Loving the sound and would highly recommend it for Cinematic or Trailer music.

    Some of the best epic percussion VSTs I’ve used so far. Great stuff, worth the price !

  3. Alejandro Peralta (verified owner)

    Amazing, really happy with it, thanks

    Everything went super quick and effortless, fast download. Library also great for that price (best to look at some reviews before buying, if it fits your aesthetic).

  5. Rob B. (verified owner)

    A very good price, for a very good product. Only unexpected thing was that the advertised price is without Vat. But even with Vat the price was ok.

  6. Robert (verified owner)

    Excellent sounding percussion in Warner Brothers studios. Great deal on this one!

    Honestly, I have Hans Zimmer Percussion, which is also mixed by the man, the myth, the legend Alan Meyerson, but this library has pre-layered Multis, which is the main reason I bought it. The multis sound like pure insanity, they don’t sound like drums at all, they sound like being smashed by a high speed train, like ground zero of a nuclear explosion, thank god I found this library.

    Sounds awesome. It’s not an instrument itself though. Each patch is an individual file you have to load on Kontakt, but you’ll get used to that! Great!
