“If action and thriller soundtracks are your thing, then Red Room Audio’s Saga Acoustic Trailer Percussion more than holds its own. It is also competitively priced so you don’t need a Hollywood budget to get on board. If your palette of cinematic drum and percussion sounds needs expanding, Saga Acoustic Trailer Percussion is well worth auditioning”
“The release of SAGA Acoustic Trailer Percussion came as a nice surprise as the library features a remarkably punchy and powerful, yet very flexible sound that leaves room for custom processing if needed. The sound of the recording hall SAGA was recorded in is rather unobtrusive and doesn’t color the samples too much while still providing a nice sense of depth. SAGA’s neatly arranged interface allows for instant usability and presents every important feature at first sight. You can really feel the knowledge in sampling and user experience Red Room Audio founder Dickie Chapin has gathered through his long-standing work as a creative director at Impact Soundworks. This, together with the amazing performances of the sampled percussion players makes SAGA a top-line sample library in my opinion..”
“At a first glance, “Saga Acoustic Trailer Percussion” might appear to be another slamming, crashing, pounding collection of trailer-tailored fluff. That is simply not the case here. What Saga really contains is a highly balanced collection of drums we’re familiar with, some we’re not, and a surprisingly flexible variety of industrial percussion that makes this package a work-horse that composers can and should, by all means, invest in with comfort. It’s rock solid. 5 out of 5 stars.”
“This is an amazing package and the price ($149) is a steal for what you’re getting. These are some of the best drum recordings I’ve heard in ages. Plus it’s useful even beyond the drums, as this is a perfect foley tool for video games and movies too.”
