Heavyocity Media has announced the release of Uncharted 88. Described as "a new breed of deeply sampled organic percussion," Heavyocity says this is a new chapter in the Damage journey that will remind us all why the piano is truly a percussive instrument.
Chock-full of over 18,600 samples and 11 GB of profoundly deep and evocative percussion sounds, Uncharted 88 will push your sonic palette into Uncharted territory. The Heavyocity team dismantled and reduced the original Damage piano down to its rawest, most intimate-sounding sources. By utilizing its inner components (the strings, the iron, and the wood), the team captured prepared performances (using hammers, rocket rods, coins, and picks), and combined it with their signature Damage sound design — offering a dramatically different take on what you might expect from a percussion library, yet fully capable of laying the groundwork for today's cinematic hybrid scores.
With over 500 sources housed in the Damage 2 engine, Heavyocity says Uncharted 88 delivers a powerful collection of unnerving percussive hits and loops "like never before".
Neil Goldberg, Co-Founder, Heavyocity commented:
Uncharted 88 fills a pocket in the Damage 2 palette by continuing the story and bringing forth a new percussive flavor that will wreak havoc in any score. Make no mistake, Uncharted 88 unlocks a new realm of expressive percussion for modern composers.
Intro Price: $119 (Reg. $149) until March 3, 2023.
