Impact Soundworks Rhapsody Orchestral Percussion KONTAKT
This exquisite symphonic collection for KONTAKT features a comprehensive
collection of 50 traditional & extended percussive instruments
recorded through three mic positions. With a clean, focused character
that is not clinically dry OR overly ?epic?, Rhapsody: Orchestral
Percussion is highly flexible for everything from small ensemble scoring
and intimate cues to dramatic & bombastic. No other percussion
library is as extensive AND affordable; we couldn?t be more proud to
share it with you!
Our goal with Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion was nothing less than creating the most versatile and affordable
percussion library ever. With 50 instruments, 100+ articulations, and
21+ gigabytes of raw recordings, calling this collection ?comprehensive?
is an understatement. Each instrument has been exhaustively sampled
with up to 10x RR and 5x velocity layers, captured across three mic
positions in a gorgeous orchestral hall.
Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion goes beyond the standard suite of drums (i.e. bass drum,
snare, toms, cymbals) to include a wide variety of aux percussion (i.e.
shaker, sleigh bells, castanets, chimes, metals, wood & temple
blocks), hand drums (i.e. djembe, bongos, cajon, darbuka), and chromatic
instruments (i.e. glockenspiel, xylophone, marimba, crotales, tubular
Besides its scope and affordability, what else sets this library apart? Most orchestral percussion libraries strive for the ideal
of ?epic? through big halls and lots of reverb: a huge sound for a huge
price. Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion was instead recorded &
designed to function in any musical context, from small, emotional
pieces, to tense underscores, and even bombastic, loud, and ? yes ? epic
Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion is exceptionally versatile with three user-blendable mic positions: close, stage (decca)
and hall. The close mics offer a dry, present, and neutral sound with a
hint of air ? ideal for small ensembles and intimate scoring. Stage and
hall mics provide natural, but not overwhelming, reverb and space from
the lovely hall.
Each microphone position within Rhapsody can be thoroughly customized through volume, panning, stereo width, and offset
controls ? or disabled entirely to preserve memory. Whether your goal is
a tight and focused percussion section, or something booming and epic,
Rhapsody offers a natural and ?honest? sound that works in any
Our philosophy when building instruments is to design with composers in mind. To that end, we?ve created a intuitive
interface for the library that provides customization and control
without being overly complex.
