Huge, deep and powerful, Japanese taiko drums often underpin the music for epic movies across all genre. Taiko Creator is a virtual instrument sample library that produces “that sound” in a new and more powerful way.

Where most libraries present limited variations, Taiko Creator allows you to create, control and generate multiple solo and ensemble groups of your own, all playable from a single interface.

With its large library of MIDI performance files, purpose-built engine and innovative yet simple-to-use feature set, Taiko Creator is a match for anyone producing cinematic percussion tracks.

“…easy to play and use without sacrificing flexibility. Most importantly, it sounds great. Another winner from ISA.”

“It sounds incredible, offers plenty of sound shaping and plays beautifully…”

Ronan Macdonald for Computer Music Magazine
“Creating thunderous percussion ensembles has never been so much fun, or so sonically flexible… create your own custom ensembles, from the very small to the intimidatingly huge.”
