Hey fam, back with another cinematic sound design type library for ya!
Today I’m checking out the newest product from Sample Logic called ASSAULT
So I won’t wast any time, lets just get right into it!
So what is ASSAULT?
This is a brand new library for Kontakt dedicated to sound design, transitions, hits, rises, falls, and other type of sound design elements.
It’s again aimed at film, media, and game composers or anyone that needs high quality fx, transitions, and sound elements.
Of course it has a very custom interface for tweaking and manipulating the sounds to your liking.
If you took a bunch of raw found sound, sound design, and other elements and then manipulated them to be played like percussive hits, kits, and impacts….
Then you’d have ASSAULT!
- content: over 850 instruments, just under 1gb in size using lossless compression
- format: Kontakt Player 5, Kontakt 5
- price: on sale $299

So how does it sound?
I think that would be accurate! If you could imagine the types of sounds you hear in a high end movie theater, the transitions, impacts, rises, and how they sound over that type of system….that’s what this library sounds like.
It’s almost as if you don’t even want to tweak or mess with the sounds because the level of quality and detail is so well done and instantly usable.
Another thing I notice about the sounds is that they are multi layered. Now I’m not speaking in terms of velocity responsiveness, but I’m saying when you play and listen to them, there are so many different things going on to make up the sound.
Everything from the main impact or swoosh down to the smallest detail really delivers a “3D” sound experience.
I guess I was just very impressed with the depth of the detail in the sounds and it really makes the library stand out in my opinion.
So what’s the bottom line?
If you use impacts, transitions, sound fx, rises, falls, reverses…or any of these types of sounds in your musical creations…here’s the library to get.
Not only do you get tons of instruments to play with, but the interface is amazing in and of itself. With all the tools and animations it makes for a very usable instrument.
I give ASSAULT 5 out of 5 subs, this is without a doubt a very deep and instantly rewarding library that sounds great, looks great, and is waiting to be tweaked.
Of course as always make sure you go over to their website and checkout their demos: http://www.samplelogic.com/products/assault
