Impact Soundworks Rhapsody for Kontakt
Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion, Impact Soundworks’ new sound library for Kontakt, provides everything for classic and exotic percussion projects.
Rhapsody is available in two Full and Essentials versions. The full edition weighs about 9GB in NCW 24-bit format (or 4GB in NCW 16-bit) and features no less than 50 traditional and exotic percussive instruments and 100 articulations. All the instruments were recording with three microphone positions (close, decca and hall) with up to 10 round robins and 5 velocity layers. You’ll find traditional bass drums, snares, toms and cymbals, but also chromatic percussions such as xylophones and marimbas and world instruments (castanets, dejmbes, bongos, cajones, tubular bells…).
The Kontakt GUI offers various controls, including EQ, convolution reverb, volume, tuning, envelope, pan, stage and hall width and more. Multiple outputs are also available.
Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion in Full version has a regular price of $249, but you can currently purchase it for the introductory price of $199. The Essentials version includes less instruments, and is available for $89. Note that the full version of Kontakt 5 is required. You can listen to audio demos at impactsoundworks.com.
