Sample Logic Impakt Cinematic Percussion library review


Hey what’s good fam!

Got another goodie to show ya from Sample Logic

This is their new percussion based library for Kontakt

Let’s check it out

So what is Impakt?

impakt This is a new cinematic and concert percussion library done the Sample Logic way

So in addition to the traditional percussion elements you of course get crazy morphed and twisted instruments based on this content.

It has a sexy custom interface that matches most of their recent instruments for quick manipulation and tweaking.

The library is huge, it has over 850 sounds and trust me…the sounds may not be exactly what you think they are.

Don’t let the name fool you, this thing is diverse!

Quick Specs

So how does it sound?

Reel to Reel Tape RecorderLook, I’ve made it no secret that Sample Logic is one of my favorite developers and have been for many years, that said, this thing sounds awesome!

But there’s something that’s just a little bit more awesome sounding in this library, and it could be the source material used. I like that a lot of the sounds have a hint of metallic, bell-like character to them, no doubt thanks to the various mallet instruments represented.

There’s also a ton of variety here, with some of their libraries I’m left wanting a bit more “ambient” to go with the “rugged” or a little more “rugged” to go with the “smoothness” of the library, however with this one I think they struck a very nice balance.

There’s plenty of smooth, airy, evolving instruments, as well as hard hitting impacts, deep drums, harsh metallic dings, and pretty mallet hits.

With the last library I reviewed of theirs I was wishing for a little more of the “sexy” to go with the “rugged” and they delivered in this one for sure!

So what’s the bottom line?

Go get it! Seriously, if you’re into these type of sounds…and I’m sure everyone can find something to like in this one, then you owe it to yourself to at least check it out.

Sometimes it’s hard to tell which library you should get from a developer, which one covers the most ground and represents their work in the most thorough fashion.

Well Sample Logic continues to improve each and every time they release a product and I really feel like they brought it all together here.

5subsI give Impakt 5 out of 5 subs, the interface is very easy to use, the sound quality is amazing, and the variety of textures provides the user with a very complete feeling sound design library.

Go on over and checkout their videos as well as listen to their demo tracks:Β

    • Told you it was crazy lol, man they did a great job on this one, has a lot that I felt was missing from the last one in terms of a bit more variety. Their stuff always sounds great, but this is just really a complete product in my opinion.

  1. SJ: This is a great percussion library. I agree with your rating of
    5.0/5.0. The price is steep,but from your video review it’s worth it. Thanks for the video…
