Sample Logic releases ASSAULT for Kontakt and Kontakt Player

Sample Logic has announced the release of ASSAULT - Hybrid Transitions & Sound Design, for Kontakt and Kontakt Player.

ASSAULT is a suite of over 850 instruments and multis that transform sound design into cinematic percussive instruments. In creating ASSAULT, Sample Logic teamed up with veteran broadcast sound design and sound effect specialist Rick Allen to record a monumental collection of real-world material ranging from rifles, flame throwers, hand guns, jets, dumpsters, and monstrous pipes to bells, chimes, glass, and an arsenal of traditional percussive instruments. From this material, Sample Logic manipulated and morphed the sounds to forge the sample library. ASSAULT is intended for film, TV, game composers and sound designers.

ASSAULT is organized and divided into a variety of categories such as: explosive impacts, rises & falls, interrupters, reverses, sweeps, scrapes, quick kits, tempo-synced arpeggiated rhythms and a collection of over 66 customized Multis that are deeply programmed.

ASSAULT hosts a collection of interface controls providing over 40 unique sections of onscreen effects and parameters. The interface is built upon Sample Logic's "multi-core effect sequencer", providing the ability to assign effects via tempo-synced step sequencers and LFOs to any instrument parameter, including the option to sequence the bypass function of each effect in real-time.

ASSAULT contains "Triggers" that provides 48 effect chains that can be triggered by any one or combination of the six on-screen keypads, or by key-switches. With the touch of a pad or key, Triggers can be instantly activated or bypassed, allowing for complete on-the-fly performance control with the ability to drastically effect the sound of any instrument instantly and non-destructively.

One of the most important features in ASSAULT are the "Multi Script Macros", first introduced in Cinematic Guitars 2. Multi Script Macros can be automated by using the new macro knob step sequencers, resulting in real-time macro sequencing and instrument parameter control. On top of that, each of the 6 Macro knobs can be assigned to any combination of instrument parameters within a multi. Multi script macros are customizable and can be created and saved. By design, any combination of instrument interface parameters can be assigned to a single macro. Finally, ASSAULT comes with over 66 customized Multis.
