Vir2 Instruments announces World Impact: Global Percussion shipping in October

Vir2 Instruments

Vir2 Instruments has announced that World Impact: Global Percussion will begin shipping October 15th, 2009.

Featuring a massive collection of varied percussion samples, World Impact spans the globe featuring percussion instruments from large to small, west to east, north to south, and traditional to rare. Sampled in detail and programmed for maximum and instant musical usability, the collection includes hundreds of varied percussion instruments from Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, and more. A 4.2-gigabyte collection of Japanese Taiko drums recorded from multiple microphone positions forms a central part of the library. Each instrument has been recorded with numerous alternate takes and velocity layers, assuring realistic and expressive sonic results. Vir2 Instruments says that "World Impact is an essential tool in the toolbox of every film composer, movie trailer producer, and aficionado of world percussion instruments".

Beyond the instrument collection, World Impact is augmented by a powerful pattern engine, the same engine that lies beneath Vir2's Elite Orchestral Percussion, allowing instant access to varied articulations such as chokes, rolls, flams, and ruffs, as well as patterned loop programming for both traditional and synthetic creations.

Pricing & Availability

World Impact is powered by the included Native Instruments Kontakt Player plug-in and so is compatible with VST, AudioUnit and RTAS (Pro Tools 7 & 8) plug-in formats allowing it to work seamlessly within any major sequencer, in addition to standalone use.

MSRP is $399.95.
