Heavyocity Media has announced the release of Master Sessions: Ensemble Metals, the third installment in its vibrant line of percussion-based virtual instruments.
Created by the composers behind NYC’s renowned Heavy Melody Music & Sound Design, Ensemble Metals adds a diverse collection of kits & loops to the compelling percussion elements of the Master Sessions series. Ranging from intricate, piercing highs to thunderous booming lows (and nearly everything in between), Master Sessions: Ensemble Metals sets a dynamic new standard for cinematic percussive metals.
Complete with 12 unique multi-sampled metal ensembles and over 300 tempo-synced loops, Ensemble Metals delivers over 2.5 GB of professional percussive content. Heavyocity returned to the intimate confines of Bunker Studios in NYC to capture a litany of metal objects and materials, with timbres ranging from epic and punchy (kegs & trash cans), to penetrating and sharp (railroad spikes & pipes). Captured in simultaneous six-player ensembles, and then processed with Heavyocity’s signature sound design skill, Ensemble Metals is THE must-have metals instrument for the serious cinematic composer.
The included content is complemented by an advanced yet intuitive user interface featuring the Stage (Kits & Collection only), advanced Trigger FXTM and Heavyocity’s signature PunishTM knob. With the proprietary Loop Mutator technology (Loops & Collection only), users can sequence, re-compose and manipulate loops in new and exciting ways.
Master Sessions: Ensemble Metals (kits & loops bundle) is available for purchase for $149 USD. Heavyocity or Komplete Ultimate users can purchase at an introductory price of $119 USD until November 2nd, 2015. The Kits and Loops packs are $89 USD each. Requires full version of Kontakt 5.5.
