Cinematic Percussion Redefined

A cinematic percussion library reimagined for the modern era. Decadence blends the grandeur of cinematic drums with the punch and precision of pop and trailer music. Every sound is meticulously processed to be the most satisfying possible without overwhelming your mix.

Deeply Sampled

Create expressive rhythms with 10 velocity layers and 9 round robins, providing every nuance required by the rigorous cinematic industry.

Creative Simplicity

Customizable sounds with an advanced FX GUI including step sequencer and rearrangeable modules. You can also save your own FX racks, or import the ones we made to figure out the magic sauce.

150+ Inspiration Starter Rhythms

Featuring 150+ highly customizable MIDI patterns inspired by Hollywood's biggest productions and trailers.

  • TOMS - 3WAY

    Inspired by Mad Max and 2WEI. Great weight, size and glue. Cuts great in mixes when used as fills.

  • TOMS - Vintage

    A smaller and precise sound. Great to use before a huge hit. It’s all about contrast.

  • TOMS - Magnum

    A mix of stomps and tom ensembles to get a very rich texture. They purposely sound less punchy to allow the follow up sounds to cut.

  • WAR DRUM - Defeat

    Deep and textural percussion inspired by Zimmer with great transient definition. Layers nicely with Darbuka.

  • WAR DRUM - Aversion

    Smeared and softer perc ensemble sound. They have a white noise profile, very useful for trailers.

  • DARBUKA - Le pilat

    The perfect exotic cinematic sound element. Mixed halfway between Dune 2 and Skrillex.

  • Booms

    Two types of booms. One for breaks with rich upper harmonics. One for layering with no clashing frequencies.

  • Taps & Tops

    These are smaller frame drums that have less body but great texture. Great to use as rolls, or as inner rhythms.

  • Kicks

    Aggressive, textural and functional cinematic kick sounds.

  • Snare

    A warm, punchy, and organic snare. As you play higher velocity the articulation changes to a flam.

  • Claps & Sticks

    Huge claps designed to fill the tails of mid-range drums. Sticks recorded with great transient definition to add production value to your mixes.

  • Cymbals

    Functional mixes with a bit more room than most libraries.

  • Blake Robinson (Composer for : Star Wars, Avatar, Overwatch 2...)

    "Karel's finally cracked the code on perfect trailer toms, and now we get to win! No more sample layering, this library delivers mix-ready punches in a single hit."

  • Edouard Brenneisen (Composer for New World, League of Legends, Multiversus...)

    "This library packs a powerful punch and sounds fantastic straight out of the box, yet still provides the flexibility to tailor its sound to my music's needs. Decadence Trailer Toms has earned a permanent spot in my template!"

  • Joshua Crispin ( Composer for Fortnite, Beat Saber, Apex Legends, Avengers...)

    "Karel has outdone himself with this phenomenal drum library. The signature sound is unmistakable and a must-have for my trailer cues and any project needing that extra punch. This library is essential for any composer looking to add epic power and intensity to their sound palette."

  • Bryan Clearside (Monkey Man, Fallout, NOPE, Silicon Valley, Mortal Kombat...)

    "DECADENCE is the modern drum sound i've been waiting for. The attacks are really incredible and really give that big budget sound right away. I wish I had this in my arsenal years ago."

  • Alex Moukala (Composer for Avengers Endgame TV Spot & More)

    “DECADENCE Trailer Toms is yet another masterpiece of that kind which I think I'll end up using virtually on any track that requires punch, energy and power. Great job Karél and AVA Sound team!"

  • Brendon Williams (Composer for League of Legends, Wild Rift, TFT, Destiny 2, Guild Wars 2, Fortnite...)

    "As a longtime fan of Karel’s drum production, this library is a dream come true. Perfectly sculpted, modern, mix-ready cinematic drum sounds with a great GUI and lots customizability. My new go-to!"

Full Throttle Toms

Insane!

There's only one person more obsessed about trailer drums than me, that I know of and that's Karel. He studied the perfect tom sound for years and distilled it into a science. This is the end result and I can't recommend it enough!

A Must Have Library

Bought this library a few weeks ago and it’s quickly become my go-to for not only composition and trailer, but also for dark-pop and the harder hitting drum oriented projects I do. Just all around fantastically recorded, engineered, clean and powerful sounds right from the start and no limitations on processing and creative within the library itself.

Genuinely a must buy.
