Have had my eyes on this for a while. The only (non epic) real orchestral percussion i have is Kontakt Factory and the percussion included in VSCO Pro 2.6, but maybe the VSCO makes this unnecessary?

I'd get this if I didn't have it already. It's an absolute steal for this price. The library covers a lot of ground and has a charmingly natural sound that's pretty flexible. It's the polar opposite of trailer noise pollution.

Best orchestral percussion library in the business in my opinion. Everything sounds good, it is flexible in terms of sound, swells are modwheel controllable across the board. For this price it's a steal. It is my standard, go to orchestral percussion library and I have used it for years now on almost all my cues.

Still have my reel-to-reel
Wow! What an amazing deal for a great percussion library. $50 plus you get $25 in rewards money! If I didn't already have the library I'd jump on this deal...

For those who already own the library, could someone tell me if the individual mic positions can be routed to separate outputs please ?

I couldnt find if it has timpani rolls and gong patches
The instrument list, from the manual. Looks like it has both timpani rolls and gongs (and gong rolls). It's worth noting that there's no celesta or vibes.

I have NI Symhony Perc too and am in a similar position. My initial thoughts are that NI perc, though it has a lot of mic options, has a more distant sound. Rhapsody sounds close and more focused. The Rhapsody timpani sounds crisper to my ear. I haven't spent a lot of time comparing though, so take with a grain of salt.

At this price, I'll be getting Rhapsody which I believe is currently the cheapest that you can get any orchestral perc anywhere on the market.

I would have thought, if it's a Kontakt library, you could do this inside Kontakt.

If not, presumably there's at least a workaround, like loading the same patches (but different mics) into two different Kontakt instances (say, "close" and "far") that have the same midi channel, then routing those different Kontakt instances separately.

Minor heads-up: it seems like you might have to batch re-save this library. I tried loading the Timpani patch and it complained about missing samples. This was fixed after resaving the patches. Just thought I should mention it so no one gets worried.
