Impact Soundworks has released a FREE African percussion Kontakt library called Heritage Percussion. (FULL KONTAKT 6.5+ REQUIRED )
This Kontakt library features excellent audio samples of 13 hand percussion instruments. Included is djembe, rattles, claves, and shakers.
The djembe has samples of open, muted, and rim strikes.
The sound is detailed and extremely musical. The samples have been captured with up to 5 dynamics and 10 round robins.
The two mic positions have been set to separate channels which the user can mix separately. This can be great for creating realistic room sounds and reverbs.
Users can customize the mapping of instruments to suit their production needs. This can be done by clicking the keyboard icon on the main page of the UI and then setting the articulations to the keys of their choice.
Tone and Envelope
Users can adjust the tone and envelop of the samples to achieve the customized performance. The envelope of the volume and pitch can be adjusted separately.
Updated Console FX Rack and Mixer
If you’ve used Impact Soundworks libraries, you’ll know there is a built-in mixer for their sample libraries. Heritage Percussion is no exception.
In fact, the FX rack has been updated to include the popular Replika delay, reverbs, and compression.
You can complete your mix these samples without the need for external plugins!
