Piano Impacts consists of a multitude of different percussive strikes against an upright piano using wooden beaters, metal beaters, palms, knuckles and fists. Pedal samples were also recorded to give each hit extra power from the vibrating strings of the piano. The custom-scripted GUI and arpeggiator add extra flavour to your patterns and rhythms.
The arpeggiator works as you might guess how an arp would work: you hold down the notes and it'll run through them for you in whatever pattern you've chosen, using the options available. What sets ours apart is a number of rhythmic options that help create much more interesting patterns, such as the ability to choose between static (new notes are played separate to the arp) or dynamic (new notes are added to the arp) and adaptive (pattern halts when a note of 0 velocity is in the sequencer) or non-adaptive (pattern continues, regardless of gaps in the sequencer).
The custom-scripting will be an inspiring asset to your collection. Combine it with the high quality samples and you've got yourself an awesome library.
