World Percussion

Since the release of our premier virtual instrument, we have been working extremely hard to bring you our first major update. Five years of rigorous product optimization, testing and research have finally brought us here.

Created for Kontakt 5, and including the free Kontakt player, we have managed to make a simple yet intuitive way to take control of these critically acclaimed sounds through advanced scripting techniques.

In addition to all the original instruments, we went back to the studio and recorded an additional 35 explosive drums expanding the library to 111 instruments! On top of that we even remixed to perfection some of the original drums!

Screen 1

With state-of-the-art equipment, a world-class scoring stage, and a treasure trove of beautiful instruments, this library offers unprecedented quality and endless creativity.

It features amazing sounds from Africa, Asia, Europe, Middle East, and South America. It also offers 4 user controllable microphone positions, an extensive array of velocities and round robin and hundreds of unique midi grooves. Aside from both tuned and un-tuned percussion, the library helps to fuel your creativity through the World Inspire Sets.

We have invested thousands of hours to ensure that this library will add a new dimension of authenticity to your next production.

Fazit: Nicht zuletzt dank der neuen innovativen Midi-Funktionen gelingt es Evolution Series erneut, die Messlatte für Percussion Bibliotheken höher zu legen. Zu einem angemessenen Preis erhalten Sie eine riesige Auswahl dynamischer und ausdrucksstarker Instrumente in enormer Deatailtiefe. Neben dem kraftvollen, lebendigen Sound begeistern auch die vielfältigen Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten sowie die inspirierenden Grooves.

It’s a pleasure to work with. It gives me the freedom and creative control to compose the way I want with these incredibly well recorded instruments. It’s not just a matter of “throwing in something ethnic” to satisfy the soup du jour. Rather I can use this library creatively and organically in my compositions and mixes, as I would live players. That’s a dream come true.

Since exploring the wonderful new Evolution Series World Percussion Library, it has added a whole new dimension to my percussion setup. The sound quality is exquisite as are the included MIDI performances. I can see myself using this on many recordings for years to come.

Wow! What great sounds! Just beautiful and transparent. They are by far the best sounding drums I have in my library, and I have a LOT of drums in my library. There are many truly inspirational presets. Wonderful job and really first-class work; I’m very impressed and excited.

World Percussion’s sonic flexibility is massive and incredibly playable. With its extensive features and parameters available to balance, it is quick and easy to use. You get a great feel going as you play it. I especially like the Brazilian percussion.
