Aria CATALYST Epic Cinematic Drums and Percussion Sample Library for Kontakt

Submitted by on May 25, 2014

Hey what’s good fam!

Hope all is well, just wanted to share a new demo video I put together for a new Cinematic/Epic drum library called Catalyst from Aria

This is for the full verison of Kontakt, must be version 4 or higher, and it’s a straight forward sample library with cinematic/epic drums and percussion sounds.

Check it out

Hi Saintjoe.
I was hoping this library would offer more for it’s full retail price of £100.
I think at it’s current sale of £39.99,it might still be a little high.
Compared to Soundiron’s Apocalyptic Percussion Elements, this is without doubt second best. Apocalyptic sounds great, with arp and midi file features plus the fact it’s a Kontakt player library (for those who do not have the full version). In my opinion, it’s a no brainer at the price around £58($99).
Without doubt, more bang for your buck.
Summing up the Catalyst library in 8 and a half minutes of video, sums this one up.

I wouldn’t consider this the best library out, but it’s another option depending on what you’re looking for. Soundiron is no doubt dope for sure, I’m a huge fan of them as well. I like showing different options for people to choose from :)

Thanks for the comment!

Is there a way to extend the release? It sounds like the sounds end abruptly. It just doesn’t sound natural. Most percussion instruments will fade out and die unless you dampen it with your hands. The extent of the cut off is just too extreme and does not sound natural. Sounds okay otherwise.
