Uppercussion has announced the release of Conundrums and Monstrosities, two new multi-format synthetic drum kit libraries.

Conundrums is a collection of 50 drum kits designed to be a go-to library for all kinds of productions created with a 16-pad interface. The library includes processed sounds originating from studio sessions, field recordings, and both analog and digital sound synthesis. Conundrums will add kicks, snares and claps, hihats and cymbals, percussion, hits and more to a beat-creation arsenal. All of the kits use a similar drum mapping, making it easy to switch among them while playing beats or using patterns.

Monstrosities is a drum kit library designed for the times when the user gets angry and needs to create music. These kits are dirty, distorted, processed, over-processed, disturbing, and sometimes hostile. The kits in this collection include a wide range of kicks, snares, cymbals, hits, strikes, bashes, roars, blasts, and industrial accidents.

Both libraries include 50 kits and 800 samples each, with formats including Maschine, Live 9, Geist, Battery, Kontakt, EXS24, Halion and Reason NN-XT, and single WAV samples.

Conundrums and Monstrosities are available to purchase for $29 USD each. A bundle of both is available for $49 USD until March 31st, 2013.
