Impact Soundworks Rhapsody Orchestral Percussion

Collection of Traditional & Extended Percussive Instruments
The goal with Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion was nothing less than creating the most versatile and affordable percussion library ever. With 50 instruments, 100+ articulations, and 21+ gigabytes of raw recordings, calling this collection ‘comprehensive is an understatement. Each instrument has been exhaustively sampled with up to 10x RR and 5x velocity layers, captured across three mic positions in a gorgeous orchestral hall.

Key Features

  •     Comprehensive suite of 50+ instruments
  •     Entire library loads in just 8 patches
  •     Three mic positions: close, stage, hall
  •     16 & 24 bit samples provided
  •     Easy mic mixing and instrument tweaks
  •     Deep sampled 10x dynamics, 5x RR
  •     Modwheel-controlled dynamic rolls and swells
  •     Focused, uncolored hall with tight reverb tail
  •     Elegant & intuitive one-page UI

Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion goes beyond the standard suite of drums (i.e. bass drum, snare, toms, cymbals) to include a wide variety of aux percussion (i.e. shaker, sleigh bells, castanets, chimes, metals, wood & temple blocks), hand drums (i.e. djembe, bongos, cajon, darbuka), and chromatic instruments (i.e. glockenspiel, xylophone, marimba, crotales, tubular bells).

Besides its scope and affordability, what else sets this library apart? Most orchestral percussion libraries strive for the ideal of “epic” through big halls and lots of reverb: a huge sound for a huge price. Rhapsody: Orchestral Percussion was instead recorded & designed to function in any musical context, from small, emotional pieces, to tense underscores, and even bombastic, loud, and - yes - epic tracks.

The philosophy when building instruments is to design with composers in mind. To that end, Impact Soundworks created a intuitive interface for the library that provides customization and control without being overly complex.
