Please note: For use of the included Kontakt Files, the fully purchased Kontakt 4 engine or higher is required. Users are still able to take advantage of the included sample files (wav/aiff), even if they do not own Kontakt.
Impact Soundworks Forest Frame Drums is a unique collection of earthy percussion for Kontakt 4 or higher. Three handmade frame drums (Primary, Deep, and Small) have been sampled in great detail to add a warm and realistic sound for your compositions and particularly ideal for world music, underscore and even epic cues.
The Primary Forest Drum was recorded close in a naturally ambient space which adds a pleasant ´splash´ on loud hits. The Deep Drum is naturally quieter, but even lower-pitched and bassier, as it was recorded very close. The Small Drum is the simplest of the three with a naturally higher pitch; great for accompaniment.
Forest Frame Drums also comes with a gorgeous UI for easy control and tweaking. You can create an instant ensemble sound with one click, and change ensemble voices, width, and tightness (or slop). Built-in release control, EQ, saturation and limiting allows you to customize the tone and shape of each drum quickly and easily.
Lastly, a convolution reverb with five custom impulses and four parameters lets you blend the drums with your other instruments readily. In short, you don´t need to use any external plugins to get these sounds to sit in a mix - all the tools you need are included!
