A big THANK YOU to IK Multimedia for making this giveaway possible, and thank you all for reading BPB!

Orchestral Percussion – Overview

Orchestral Percussion is a realistic percussion sound library for Miroslav Philharmonik 2 and SampleTank 4 Custom Shop (freeware). The latter is completely free when you sign up for an IK Multimedia user account.

IK Multimedia sampled a variety of percussive instruments for the Orchestral Percussion library. The list includes timpani, an orchestral bass drum, symphonic chau gongs, piatti cymbals, three different classical snare drums, sleighbells, tambourines, triangles, castanets, and more.

The instruments were performed by Greg Ellis, a master percussionist known for his work on countless Hollywood blockbuster films.

Orchestral Percussion features several timpani drums with gentle stereo panning and numerous articulations (soft mallet, hard mallet, rolls, crescendos, etc.). The timpani was recorded at a top Hollywood studio using Neumann microphones placed at mid-front and overhead positions.

All instruments are sampled with multiple velocity layers and round-robin variations to ensure natural-sounding playback. You can quickly sequence the percussion in your DAW to achieve authentic rolls and crescendos without the “machine gun effect.”

In addition to the sample content, Orchestral Percussion includes over 100 MIDI patterns and over 400 audio loops covering a variety of advanced dynamic performances that are difficult to perform or sequence via MIDI. You can drag and drop these files into your DAW for easy access and additional editing.

Orchestral Percussion is fully compatible with Miroslav Philharmonik 2 and SampleTank Custom Shop. You can download the SampleTank Custom Shop for free via IK Multimedia.

The library samples 48 instruments with 1,822 individual samples, 102 MIDI patterns, 411 audio loops, and 3 GB of audio content.

Orchestral Percussion – Who is it for?

For any type of cinematic soundtrack or movie trailer, you obviously need epic-sounding orchestral percussion. That’s where a library like this one is a must-have (along with some quality sound effects).

However, IK Multimedia Orchestral Percussion is also useful for modern EDM tunes, pop music, hip-hop, and more.

The library covers a wide range of percussion instruments, from orchestral timpani (ideal for dramatic movie trailers and soundtracks) to snares, cymbals, bells, and other percussive sounds that will perfectly fit almost any music style.

  1. i happen to own this library, alls i can say is that sometimes you need some kind of reference point to where you ground your production, and this is a decent reference point to listen to and make decisions…so yes i urge peepz to take advantage of this freeby, mainly as reference but still very useful.

    • Not sure what you mean by reference :-)
      I thank bedroomproducers blog getting this library fro free. And I’m glad that I didn’t pay anything.

      The timpanies are out of tune and not really played well. The snare rolls sounds like played from a beginner.

  2. The IK plugin giveaway last year by BPB gave me EQual + 24 group buy freebies. I’ll add Orchestral Percussion to the other IK percussion libraries (Cinematic, Malletopia, Malletension). Thanks!

  3. Nice! I had to eliminate Orchestral Percussion from my IK Multimedia group buy list to make room for other needs. But now I’ve got it anyway.

  4. Thank you so much Tomislav, BPB & IK, i really appreciate this awesome offer & all of the hard work involved to bring us this great sound pack. much love & respect Tomislav ❤️☘️😊

  5. Great Tomislav, thank you so mush for your amazing blog!
    You should get a medal!
    Looking forward to this collection,
    All the best!

  6. WOW – What an absolutely amazing gift! *_* Cannot wait to play with these virtual instruments. I used to love playing timpani when I was younger :D

    Thank you very much BPB and IKM ^_^

    It’s very important to point that all IK libraries expire in two years. So, you better download it and back it up. If you don’t do it, it will expire and you can no longer download it without paying IK 22 bucks to renew the license for two more years.

    • Michal Ochedowski


      I would say they expire in 180 days after purchase, not in two years. I’ve never seen a longer than 180 days period in my account.

  8. Thank you very much!

    I hope I did not make any mistake entering the required information, because I didn’t receive any feedback on that.

  9. Truly an Epic deal my brother! Wow!

    We’re not competing with the heavy weights in the industry with their extremely expensive orchestral libraries for each of the individual sessions but having a percussion library like this one for free is ridiculous.

    Without a good percussion library like this one we can’t even start learning how to make nice sounding scores.
    Many newcomers to will benefit from this immensely.

    What a great age to make music.

    Thank you very much my friend.

  10. For some strange reason I never received the mail, I think I will never receive it, I do not understand it, several hours have passed but it’s okay, I thank you, you will always be the best. Happy Holidays

  11. por alguna extraña razon nunca recibi el correo, creo que nunca lo recibire, no lo entiendo, ya pasaron varias horas pero esta bien, les agradesco, siempre seran lo mejor. felices fiestas

  12. It is already 7:30 p.m. And still haven’t received an access code by email. Though she said the code will be emailed to me today November 8th when I sign up. I’ve been doing that since November 2nd.

  13. Yeah, still waiting for mine. I definitely got the confirmation email, so I know I definitely signed up properly. Still no email yet though.

  14. Hi Tomislav,

    I never received the license key. I also emailed you with my Order ID number but haven’t heard back from you.

    Thank you…. Charles

    • Tomislav Zlatic


      Hi Charles, great news! I still haven’t received your emails though, but sometimes there’s a delay on the mail server. Either way, I’m glad we worked it out. Enjoy the freebie and thanks for reading BPB. :)

    In my case it failed while installing Custom Shop without explanation. I had bad feeling about installing all this bloatware. Product manager and two products just for one library (CS and Sampletank), that’s dumb. Also expires in 180 days? WTF. I hate product managers so much. Waves is horrible, Slate didn’t even had an uninstaller and IK is no better. I used to put dll in a folder and it worked. Account deleted.

  16. My download link expired and unfortunately I did not manage to download it.
    Is there a way I could get this now? I can provide an order ID.
