unEarthed Sampling intros Tension Hits 2

unEarthed Sampling Tension Hits 2

unEarthed Sampling has released Tension Hits 2, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Where STH focuses on soft tension filled hits from unlikely sources, TH2 focuses more on in your face loud and epic impacts. All of these impacts come from unconventional sources such as chairs, tubes, stage hits, doors, sticks, metal shelves, and candelabras. unEarthed Sampling even recorded ensemble stomps on the stage which sound “HUGE and epic”. There are no loops or phrases here, these are all multisampled recordings meticulously recorded via a matched pair mic set.

All of the samples were recorded in a large old hall built in the late 1800s. The hall is featured in the GUI art by Glyn Lloyd. All of the patches (save for one of the two stomps patches) feature 4 X RR.

The GUI features some easily tweakable controls to really change the sound of each of the patches. These tweaks include Attack, Release, Lo, Mid, and Hi gain knobs, and the indispensable pitch knob. The toggleable covolution reverb makes these sound huge and they even included 13 easily selectable impulse responses.

The library is available for purchase for $25 USD.
