Vir2 Instruments World Impact Global Percussion Product Description
You haven't heard world percussion until you've heard Vir2's World Impact: Global Percussion virtual instrument. This collection of some of the most obscure yet sought-after world percussion is, in a word, HUGE! From the chromatic Noah bells of St. John to the expressive Mokugyo of Japan and nearly everything in between, World Impact puts dozens of percussion traditions spanning every major continent in your hands - hundreds of percussion instruments (about 13GB worth) in all, each recorded with numerous alternate take and velocity layers. You'll be blown away by the breathtakingly realistic details!
One of the jewels of this collection is a 4.2GB collection Japanese Taiko drums. Additional bonus sample collections provide you with an extensive set of sound-design tools - a real windfall for video post production engineers! Plus, a powerful pattern engine give you all kinds of articulation options, including chokes, rolls, flams, and ruffs, as well as patterned loop programming that's great for both traditional and synthetic percussion textures. And because World Impact uses the Native Instruments Kontakt engine, you can load World Impact in every major DAW.
