Time+Space has announced Impact Designer, a virtual instrument library that allows you to create your own epic SFX.
Zero-G have once again joined forces with Dan Graham (Animato, Spiritoso, Luminso, Perpetuo) to release ‘Impact Designer’.
Create your own unique hits, bangs, epic slams, booms, whacks and more with this brand new collection for Kontakt which, thanks to a high level of customisation options, gives you over 15 million possible variations!
Under the hood there are 3 dynamic velocity layers and 3 round robins for each sound so it all stays nicely organic-sounding without a machine-gun effect of repeat sample-triggering.
Every Impact is made up of 3 elements – HIT, BOOM and DECAY. Respectively, these 3 elements are the attack, the body of the hit and the long release. The Impact Designer instrument quickly crossfades between the 3 different sounds in order to produce sonic complexity and a very wide range of possible variations. There is also a Pre-Hit function which is a reverse sound that can give your Impact an impressive thwack.
Of course, there are times when you simply need epic sounds in an instant, so why not take your pick from the collection of 90 presets – some of which were created by The Unfinished’s Matt Bowdler.
The library is available for the introductory price of £54.95 GBP until Friday 11th June (regular £69.95 GBP).

Time+Space has announced the release of Perpetuo – Live Flute Phrases, a new Zero-G library
Following the success of Animato, Spiritoso and Luminoso, Dan Graham has joined forces again with Zero-G to produce the next library in the series ‘Perpetuo – Live Flute Phrases‘.
Performed by a world-class flute and piccolo player from the Liverpool Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and recorded in Liverpool’s famous Parr Street studios, Perpetuo is an 8Gb collection of thousands of live recorded looped phrases designed for use with Kontakt v5.2.
Despite the sixty-two Kontakt instruments being made from pre-recorded phrases, Perpetuo remains highly controllable and flexible. This has been achieved by recording the same patterns across a wide pitch and dynamic range with many scale variations, by choosing patterns that blend in well to a wide variety of musical styles, and then by allowing you to automatically sync to the tempo of your projects with a wide variety of rhythm and scale types all controlled with key switches.
Dynamic levels pp to ff can be smoothly crossfaded by mod wheel, the ensemble size can be cleverly zoomed from solo to three players, and two mic positions (close and room) can be chosen or blended.
Perpetuo gives you the advantages of fluidity and realism of recorded patterns and phrases and yet also many of the advantages of the flexibility of a standard orchestral library.
The Perputuo library is available to purchase from Time+Space for RRP £79.95 GBP / 94.95 EUR / $119 USD.
