Elias Percussion



Elias Percussion is made for the Elias adaptive music system and works in Elias Engine, Elias Studio and Elias Sampler. This library is the start of a project to bring high-end percussion samples to the adaptive music world. We cut no corners making this library and since Elias has great economizer functionality, this library will work even in very small sized games for mobile etc.

The Ultimate Snare Collection

  • Classic Snare & Classic Snare Mute. Close, Overhead & three mic positions.
    This is a classic allround snare drum that will most likely be the go-to snare for most projects.
  • Modern Snare & Modern Snare Mute. Close, Overhead and three mic positions.

A much darker low-end snare. A perfect complement to the classic snare for giving that low end to the ensemble.

  • Piccolo Snare & Piccolo Snare Mute. Close, Overhead and three mic positions.

The perfect edge in the ensemble, but a fine standalone snare with details out of the ordinary.

  • Piccolo Hi & Piccolo Hi Mute. Close, Overhead and three mic positions.
    You can’t get more edge and nearness than this. Almost a mixture of a classic piccolo and a Scottish march snare.


  • The drumkit is a well balanced kit to fit all styles & genres. Recorded in the same studio as the snares with the same mikes so it will blend perfectly with any of the snares.  The drumkit uses the same snares as the stand alone snare drums, so it is important to keep the file structure inside the Elias Percussion folder as it is.

Various percussion recorded at Relayer Studios

  • Big and small Djembe played with hands.
  • Darbouka with hand and sticks.
  • Req, tambourine, shakers and agogo spaced out over the keys to make it possible to play “shaken” versions.
