Sample Logic has announced the release of Impakt, a virtual cinematic & concert percussion instrument for Kontakt and Kontakt Player.
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, 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.
- Over 850 Instruments and Multis delivered at 44.1k/24-bit.
- Just over 20 GB sample library using Kontakt’s lossless sample storage compression.
- NI Kontakt 5 Player with native 64-bit support.

Impakt is available to pre-order for $299.99 USD (regular $399.99 USD). The library is scheduled to be available August 15th, 2013.
