Apocalypse Percussion Micro is the compact starter edition of the acclaimed Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble library. It has a simple and intuitive user interface with full articulation control, modular kit-building, dynamic arpeggiation and customizable FX routing, with 119 real-world and special effect convolution spaces.
Apocalypse Percussion Micro features a total of:
- 28 hard-hitting ensemble articulations, including 6 concert snare drum sets
- 5 large tom sets
- 7 bass drum sets
- 4 Indian Dhol sets
- 3 Turkish Doumbek sets
- 1 Irish Bodhrán (frame drum) articulation
- one Egyptian Riq and a Greek Daf articulation
Each articulation was performed by an ensemble of each drum type, ranging in size between 3 and 6 players in unison and in up to 12 dynamic layers, for a massively epic sound.
These instrument ensembles were captured in the same bright, open hall in which the legendary Olympus Symphonic Choir, Mercury Boy’s Choir, Montclarion Grand Piano, Struck Grand, Tuned Artillery and many other Soundiron libraries were recorded. The space and wide large-diaphragm close mic array give these drums a potent and aggressively open sound, with just the right touch of transparent natural reverberation.

There’s also a complete DSP effects rack, including reverb with over a hundred life-like spaces, such as cathedrals, churches, halls, bunkers, garages, tunnels, chambers, rooms and creative FX convolution impulse responses.
