Sample Logic Announces IMPAKT!
IMPAKT – Cinematic & Concert Percussion
BREAKING NEW GROUND
Sample Logic breaks new ground with IMPAKT — A suite of over 850 breathtaking morphed concert percussion instruments and multis that will blow you away. This diverse collection of instruments ranges from dramatically twisted marimbas and xylophones, blissful chimes and bells to massively transfigured timpani, gongs, bass drums, cymbals, and a variety of world percussion instruments. IMPAKT also includes a complimentary set of traditional concert percussion instruments. All sounds were recorded on the Scoring Stage at Skywalker Sound (a Lucasfilm Ltd. Company) under the direction of renowned percussionist Jim Wunderlich and System Blue, the result of which is a comprehensive library that contains both traditional instruments and an evocative collection of morphed cinematic instruments, transitions, atmospheres, leads, impacts, and tempo-synced rhythms.

"Triggers" – 48 unique effect chains
"Arpeggigater" – sequencer based gate effect
"LFO" section to make things wobble
"Wave" – additive/subtractive synthesis engine
"Pitch" sequencer for quick and easy real-time pattern based transpositions
"Space" – a 3D sound mixer for traditional instruments that can dramatically change the listening perspective in realtime.
"Loop" – audio sliced based effect engine that can bypass and turn effects and parameters on in realtime that is included on all tempo-synced loop instruments.
"Multi Script Macros" for real-time sequencing of instrument parameter controls
RE-ENGINEER THE SOUND
All of the traditional instruments in IMPAKT were recorded and programmed so the end user has total control of the multiple microphone mix (Close, Mid, Far, Rear, Sub, Wavetables), using a newly designed mixer section. Additionally, the entire listening perspective of any traditional instrument can be manipulated, using a new 3D-sound engine called "Space". Space includes a visual mixing console for easily changing the listening perspective to any location in a theater. From standing behind the stage to sitting all the way in the back row of the theater, each instrument can be moved around for the perfect mix when combining instruments together.
