The story

This package is the final step of my recent trip to the neighboring country of Argentina.

From there I brought a beautiful looking clock gear and decided that it would be my next percussion instrument.
Sampled and edited, I took courage and embarked on my first Kontakt library.

I hope you have as good a time as I have sampling it and learning, I look forward to seeing what you can create with it!

  • A different kind of percussion

    I was expecting something completely different, but I was definitely not disappointed! This is a nice electro-style set of percussive sounds that sound very unique and fresh. The sounds are nicely sampled and there are some variations for the user to explore. There are also individual volume knobs that you can set as if you had everything connected to a drum mix console, along with a reverb to make them sound deep and cinematic in case you feel like it.

    As a very minor complain, I would prefer the knobs being controlled with vertical rather than horizontal mouse movement, since most plugins are mapped like that - though this is just me, and it takes nothing from the whole experience. Another small thing is that, the tail of some samples is cut if you release the key too quickly, so when playing you have to hold down the key, or when proramming you have to create a bigger tail. The good thing about that is that you can manually control the release note-by note, so there you go!

    While all the files are included twice for no reason (there's an extra zip file that can be deleted), the size is just below 7MB. An easy recommendation! - though remember to slide the default volume a little bit down since it can be very loud by default.

  • Nice drumkit, with a unique twist!

    The library is a simple, yet unique and awesome-sounding drumkit! I think it sounds pretty awesome and unique. Especially the hat, djembe, and other perc sounds are very awesome in my opinion! Two things I noticed are that the other perc knob is dialed down for some reason, you should definitely turn this one up, because the other perc sounds amazing, probably my favorite sounds from this library. Then there's also a loop on E4, which felt quite random to me in terms of mapping. However, it does sound really nice!! Overall a solid drumkit, definitely a fun one to download and make something cool with!

  • Tight Sounds

    Some nice sound here with a really crisp sound. The layout of the notes could have been set out following a more common drum kit style maybe. The looped sounds dont seem to be mapped to any tempo which is a shame but a very solid first attempt at making an instrument in Kontakt.
