THE POWER OF THE PIECES
Fragments - Modern Percussion is influenced by urban pulse. By combining fragments of organic sounds, this library creates energizing and complex, low-key rhythms and beats that function equally well in cinematic, ambient, and experimental environments.
With its extensive randomization choices, you can capture the unpredictable character of human nature and give your rhythms an endless range of variation. Finding new sequences is simple with FRAGMENTS - MODERN PERCUSSION, or you may fill in the blanks quietly while creating a massive cacophony of wild slaps, ticks, and kicks.

INNOVATIVE PERCUSSIVE ATMOSPHERES
FRAGMENTS – MODERN PERCUSSION is a percussion instrument built from sounds that aren’t typically found in your standard percussion library. Each sound was recorded in twelve round robins and up to five velocity layers, with an FX and randomization engine that gives the feeling of a truly human touch (literally, since we even used parts of the human body!).
INTRICATE RHYTHMS MADE EASY - Each beat generator features a sequencer with two randomization features: one lays out the initial pattern and the other shakes it up with every turn. It also includes control over our Density feature that fills out the sound and adds hits of varying velocities to every silent step.
LAYERS UPON LAYERS - Each layer of the engine functions off its own five layers that you can turn on and off, or customize the sound further by allowing the engine to randomly select sounds and panning position.
JUMPSTART THE CREATIVE PROCESS - From bread and butter to cinematic and experimental, we’ve designed a vast array of presets to get you started. From over 100 presets, begin your percussion journey the right way.
POWER IN SUBTLETY
With FRAGMENTS – MODERN PERCUSSION’s ingenious controls, it’s surprisingly simple to create a unique, intricate sound.
CRAFT MOVEMENT THROUGH RHYTHM
Each of the three layers has their own independent design options that allow you to craft your own sounds and rhythms quickly and easily with FRAGMENTS – MODERN PERCUSSION.
A MATERIAL ADVANTAGE - The Bass and Snare slots feature 3 organic sounds each recorded with 12 round robins, while the Fragments slot contains 17 sounds. Sounds can be selected by their source: Wood, Metal, Mechanical, Body, or a sound you drag-and-drop into the User section. Control which sounds are sourced, the panning, or make it all random.
A DASH OF THE SECRET SAUCE - The hidden secret of the sequencer is the Density option, which fills in the gaps at random velocities. This can be tied to the modwheel, allowing you to easily switch between minimal and complex rhythms.
INCREASE THE CONTROL - Determine how to control the Tone and Density options on your MIDI keyboard. Set the minimum and maximum for each to tighten the design function.
MAKE IT PERSONAL - Some people like to have their own recorded sounds in their productions. We make it easy to blend in your personal touch with the complicated rhythms of FRAGMENTS – MODERN PERCUSSION. Simply drag-and-drop your sound to the icon and add it in on the Main Screen.
MODERNIZE YOUR SOUND
Many composers are looking for that modern, found sound vibe to complete their cinematic masterpieces. FRAGMENTS – MODERN PERCUSSION takes those bits of everyday life and turns them into an integral part of any soundscape. With FRAGMENTS – MODERN PERCUSSION, you can make any project have that modern edge.
All the sounds were recorded with 12 round robins, ensuring a complete human feel to the sound. Depending on the source, they have up to 5 velocity layers using an array of high-quality mics and were painstakingly recorded in our sound engineer’s own at-home pillow fortress of solitude.
FRAGMENTS – MODERN PERCUSSION lets composers add that unique, modern percussion flavor without having to do the street work of micing and capturing those sounds. We’ve done that handiwork for you so you can get back to the desk and get to writing your next great work.
