Yo what’s up fam!
Back with a brand new library from some of my favorite folks.
It’s from Heavyocity, who made some very dope products with the Evolve and Evolve Mutations library
It’s distributed by Native Instruments, so it works in the Kontakt Player or full verison of Kontakt
This is a huge percussion library….so let’s check it out
What is DAMAGE?
This is basically a percussive toolkit made for epic cinematic music, trailers, movies, games,
or any music that needs a heavy dose of hard percussion
It is a Kontakt library, with a great interface that inspires you to tweak…pretty much like the other products from Heavyocity
Now of course the guys over at Heavyocity are film/cinematic dudes…they actually do score movies, trailers, and all that other stuff.
So you can pretty much assume this library will definitely have that sort of “edge” to it….but this is definitely not a one trick pony…it’s really diverse.
- content: 30GB
- format: Kontakt 5 or Kontakt 5 Player
- price: $339
How does it sound?
This library sounds amazing man! I know personally, I figured it would be just a huge collection of distorted hits and percs that sound good but aren’t very flexible…even with the great interface.
I was totally wrong!
Yes, there is some super distorted, trashed, messed up…smack your grandma in the face while she’s on the treadmill type sounds in here.
However…there are also some really well recorded percussion sounds, that are not distorted at all (unless you want to “punish” them yourself)
That makes this a VERY flexible library in my opinion.
Sure it doesn’t have every type of percussion here, but it covers a pretty wide range to the point that….this will be a standard for percussive libraries for sure.
The metals and fx are great as well. I just can’t get over the quality of the recordings, even the distorted stuff has a super high quality about it…great
What’s the bottom line?
Get it, no seriously. If you make any type of music that needs hard hitting, well recorded percussion…get this
As you can tell by the video, I REALLY enjoy this library….so much that I got a little carried away just playing with it.
I give this library 5 out of 5 subs, no question…
Maybe I’m biased because I love hard, epic percussion sounds….or maybe I’m biased because I love the stuff that Heavyocity does.
Or maybe…it’s just that freaking dope! Yeah…that’s it…it’s just that freaking dope!!
I’ve got a few epic/cinematic percussion libraries, and most are really good, but this one raises the bar tremendously.
Not only do you get the HUGE and HARD hits, but you also get some very pristine “general” percussion and drums.
My favorite part of the library by far are the percussive kits, I love how you can move them around the stage, and change the EQ/Filter for each drum in a kit.
Talk about flexability!
Come on man…do I really need to keep talking about this? Isn’t it pretty clear, just listen to the demos, watch the video and then go get it, simple.
If you’re into movies/games…this is a no brainer.
If you do any type of urban/electronic music….again…this fits in there as well.
