Trailerize Any Music Track with ‘Trailer Drum Overlays 2’

Second volume in ALIBI Music’s trailerization toolkit brings new drum types and energy.

Giving users even more ways to trailerize any music track, ALIBI Music has expanded its industry-first toolkit. The company released a second volume of trailer drum overlays – Trailer Drum Overlays 2 – after its clientele of music supervisors and trailer editors raved about the first album and began asking for more. Overlays from ALIBI’s debut release (2023) were used in the official trailers for such notable projects as Saltburn, Migration and The Blacklist, to name a few.

LUSSIER Director of Music Shannon Berry described the first release as “essential to my editors’ cuts” and “a great go-to source for them [that] features a variety of great quality drum hits in various BPMs.” Both albums offer an affordable way to add impact and drama to music tracks.

Trailer Drum Overlays 2 – developed from ALIBI client feedback and needs – features a versatile collection of production cues provided in a range of tempos and designed to augment existing recordings with a heavier, trailer sound. Featuring hip hop, hybrid and modern hits, taikos and stomps, as well as claps and finger snaps, these drum overlays are ideal for a wide range of trailer and promo styles.

ALIBI Music has expanded its trailerization toolkit with the release of ‘Trailer Drum Overlays 2.’

“We added taiko drums, and like the first one, we have whoosh claps, but this album gives them a variation for more energy in every BPM,” said composer Kent Carter, ALIBI’s VP, Strategic Initiatives. “It also adds to ALIBI’s other customizable trailer elements like braams, horns and choirs, all of which are easily searchable from our website and extension for Adobe Premiere Pro.”

“Our job here is to help editors,” explained Julia Trainor, ALIBI’s Head of Sync A&R. “Let’s give them more of what they like and what they need. I think people that aren’t at an editing bay watching trailer editors work don’t realize that they are truly music editors. They have 20, 30 lines of audio sometimes that they are mixing and remixing and taking stems and building as they create an audio track for a trailer, so the more elements they have that can help them build it the way they hear the music, the better job they are going to do.”
