Westwood Instruments has announced the fifth release in the “Untamed” series, a percussion sample library for Kontakt.

Percussion Untamed is a percussion instrument made from the sounds of tapping, knocking, hitting and scraping a violin, viola, cello and bass.

Recorded during the Solo Strings Untamed sessions, we captured 40 unique sounds. With a really human feeling behind each one, some of the sounds are more traditional, whilst others are much more experimental.

Included are over 200 drag-and-drop MIDI loops written and performed by percussionists. A brilliant starting point if you need a hit of instant inspiration. Equally helpful if you’re on a tight deadline and just need something that works.

Either way this is percussion sample library that’s just a bit different. It’s right at home in rhythmical string quartet arrangements as well as full-on action cues when you need something that doesn’t sound like every other composer’s taiko drums.

The library is on sale for the introductory price of $19 USD until June 17th, 2021 (regular $29 USD). It requires the full version of Kontakt 5.6.8 or higher.
