The distinct sound of traditional Japanese Taiko drums has been superbly captured in 89 exciting rhythmic variations.

These highly stylised full-mix loops are split into over 590 individual parts that stand strong as individual elements or combinations.

Every performance has depth and character, allowing you to convincingly reconstruct authentic Taiko licks of your own.

If you're aiming to generate that intense cinematic action vibe, or simply want to introduce elements from a rather different palette, don't miss this.
