SFZ / VSTi tribal/war drums?

Hi guys,

I just installed Sforzando yesterday, and I've been using the Sonatina Symphony with it (incredibly cool!!) inside of Cockos Reaper.

I'm on a budget of $0 currently, but I'd love to add some tribal/war/cinematic drums to my music (like in the Game of Thrones theme). Anyone have a lead on something free that I can use? Specifically looking for sfz or vsti format.

My apologies if this is in the wrong sub-forum!

sforzando is a marking used on sheet music. it allows for the note with the sforzando to be played forcefully/loudly/aggressively, and then immediately back down to the standard dynamics previously used.

Hope this helps

Nah, you don't.
I got sforzando a month or two ago as well, and slowly built up my library of free soundfonts to use in it. I must have about 5Gb already and most of them are fantastic.

The links in this thread should give you a pretty decent starting point.
Apart from that, just google free soundfonts or free percussion soundfonts and download everything you come across. After all; nothing to lose. Just delete the things you don't like or need to save space.

EDIT: In fact, try using this sampler as well. I found it to be a lot nicer and more intuitive (plus more CPU friendly) than sforzando. It loads up a whole bunch of file types too, including SFZ and Soundfont.

Thanks, broski! Looks great!

*NABEDIT: I did a bit of digging. Unfortunately, it appears that at least some of that sf library is actually reverse-engineered paid samples being distributed for free. Sucks...I was really looking forward to it.

UPDATE: In case anyone has been following this thread with interest, I found it. I really found it. A legit, multi-velocity, free taiko VST.
