I've been acquiring a number of sample libraries in the past year, and this track makes use of some of them. It has Indonesian gamelan, Japanese taiko, Indian tabla and orchestral strings.

This first mix is too bottom heavy, so in the future I'll probably cut back on the taiko. It does feel kind of neat with a subwoofer, though.

Ha! That's what Tanaka-san said! But a week later he was right back on the taiko again, heavier than ever. It's a tough habit to shake. Last I saw him he was down in Akihabara, begging one of the shopkeepers to give him a break on a big subwoofer: "I'll have the other 50,000 yen for you next week, man, I promise! Just lemme take this one home now, PLEASE!" Shopkeeper wasn't having it, though. "Poor bastard", he said after Tanaka-san shuffled away, head hung low, "they just don't know when to quit, these taiko junkies."
