Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble Micro is the compact starter edition of the Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble cinematic percussion and cymbal library by Soundiron. This heavy soundtrack drum collectoin features a total of 28 ensemble articulations, including 6 concert snare drum sets, 5 large tom sets, 7 bass drum sets, 4 Indian Dhol sets, 3 Turkish Doumbek sets, 1 Irish Bodhrán (frame drum) articulation, one Egyptian Riq and a Greek Daf articulation.
Each articulation sound set has 4 - 12 dynamic velocity layers and a simplified 2 round robin variations per note. Owner of APE Micro can apply their APE Micro purchase toward the upgrade to the much larger Apocalypse Elements library for Kontakt Player or the full 25GB Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble to have the complete package.
These instrument ensembles were captured in the same bright, open and acoustically balanced sanctuary hall that Soundiron recorded its Olympus Symphonic Choir, Mercury Boy's Choir, Montclarion Grand Piano, Struck Grand, Tuned Artillery and other libraries.
APE Micro has a simple and intuitive user interface with detailed sound-shaping controls, modular kit-building, dynamic arpeggiation and customizable FX routing, with over 100 natural spaces and special effect convolutions. The Kontakt presets in this library all require the full retail version of Kontakt 5.5.2 or later, or users can import any of the nearly 400 drum samples into any wav-compatible program they wish.
The library is for the full retail version of Kontakt 5.5.2 and later (OS X 10.9 or later / Windows 7 or later). The free Kontakt Player does not support this format:
