Impact Soundworks has released Momentum, a new percussive sound design instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt and REX/WAV.

The library is the ideal rhythm collection for film, TV and game composers. It comes with over 2,500 truly unique, organic percussion performances, categorized and tagged with extensive sound design tools.

Besides the powerful Kontakt patches it also includes sliced REX/WAV files and both chromatic and sound menu oneshot/multisample patches for instant inspiration.

Impact Soundworks Momentum

Momentum offers a tremendous collection of original, acoustic percussive performances just a click away. Everything was created and recorded organically. Unlike countless other rhythm/pulse libraries, these are not just synthetic elements processed with the same set of tools that everyone else uses.

We captured such sounds as mistreated bass drums, rare hand percussion, hammered guitars, slapped cellos, wine glasses, found metal objects, giant boxes, tiny blocks, and a treasure trove of other unique instruments. In total, we recorded over 2,500 performances and hundreds of multisamples, then tagged and categorized every sound to make them as easily as possible to access.

These sounds come from a diverse array of talented recording artists and sound designers, each offering their own distinct take on the challenge of organic, unexpected percussion.

With Momentum, finding and editing the perfect, organic rhythm element is easier than ever before. We know it will inspire your music!
