Virtual Drumline 2.5 from Sibelius is virtual instrument that contains marching and concert percussion sounds based on the world champion percussion section of the Santa Clara Vanguard marching band. The library can be used as a plug-in or standalone.
The library of included sounds is not just about marching drums, but in addition contains a huge collection of orchestral, world, effect, drum set, rhythm section and drum line instruments. All the sounds are programmed with virtually any articulations and playing techniques imaginable.
Enhanced multi-sampled velocity layers, attack/release and EQ control, multiple mallet selections, rolls, glissandi, solos and ensembles and automatic right-hand/left-hand alternations are but a few of the powerful features programmed into the Virtual Drumline instrument collection.
