Shreddage DRUMS - Coming soon from Impact Soundworks

Shreddage DRUMS - Raw & produced kits for rock & metal - Coming soon!

I'm very pleased to announce the upcoming release of SHREDDAGE DRUMS - a badass, thundering collection of acoustic drum sounds (raw + produced) perfect for rock & metal music. The library was created in collaboration with award-winning composer/producer FRANK KLEPACKI (Dune, Command & Conquer series, Star Wars: Empire At War, Rise of Immortals, Grey Goo, etc) who recorded, performed, & engineered the drum kits.


Shreddage Drums is built around three unique drum kits spanning three kicks, five snares (maple & steel), twelve toms (8" to 18"), and a variety of cymbals (crashes, chinas, splash, hihat, ride). All drums were recorded in great detail, with FULL bleed control, key articulations, and lots of dynamics & round robin variations.

The library also includes two PRODUCED versions of all kicks and snare samples, using the finest equipment to sculpt and polish these individual drums to perfection and adding a total of 6 more kicks and 15 more snares.


We've partnered with Groove Monkee to include a substantial collection of kickass hard rock, metal, and power rock MIDI grooves - all recorded live with real drummers. With thousands of grooves, fills, and variations to choose from, you'll have plenty of inspiration to kickstart your tracks.


The engine of Shreddage Drums is far and away the most deep and powerful we've ever created. ALL drum sounds are available in one convenient patch with comprehensive mixing and mapping controls.

The MIXER offers total mix control with separate buses for kick, snare, toms, hihat, overhead, and room mics, plus a MASTER bus. Each bus has its own FX rack and the direct mics have their own OH/Room sends for precision mixing. Full Bleed control is also available, so you can easily mix a little bit of snare bleed into your toms, kick into your hihat, or any combination you want. Plus, you can send different buses to different Kontakt outputs for further mixing in your host.

The DRUM EDITOR gives you precision control over envelopes, volume, tuning, and mic mix for *individual* drums. For example, you can adjust the volume of JUST your 20" kick and give it more sub mix, while leaving your 24" kick alone. Or, mix in more TOP mic to your piccolo snare and a tighter decay, while letting your deep 14x8" maple ring out longer.

The MAPPING EDITOR provides unparalleled control over the instrument mapping. Load ANY drum or ANY articulation wherever you want on the mapping keyboard. Want a whole octave of kicks? No problem! Alternating Snare L and Snare Right an octave apart? Sure, why not! Once you're done setting up the perfect map for your keyboard (or drum set), you can also adjust volume and tuning on a note-by-note basis.

Other settings and features include:

* Fully-editable velocity curve with a dozen presets
* Humanize velocity/timing controls
* Easy transposition
* Visual drum kit with on-click triggers
* MIDI learn to assign new drums/articulations
* A suite of master mix & mapping presets
* Alternate GRID mode mapping to view all mapped drums simultaneously
* Auto and one-click purge to keep unused samples out of memory


For your listening pleasure here are our first demos, including NAKED versions - with many more to come soon! The drum sounds here come entirely from Shreddage Drums with NO external mixing, plugins, or FX used. It's 100% done from within the instrument :D


Shreddage Drums will debut for KONTAKT PLAYER at the introductory price of $119, or only $99 for Shreddage 2 owners (MSRP: $139)

We can't wait to show more details in the next few days - let me know if you have any questions!
