HAVOC is the ultimate cinematic percussive suite of over 850 instruments and multis that will transform the tools of your trade. The HAVOC sample collection has been derived from hundreds of industrial machines, farm tools, everyday auto body parts and gears, all recorded in a massive multi-car garage. Each sample was recorded, processed, manipulated, morphed and then programmed creatively utilizing Sample Logic’s award-winning user interface controls. Geared for film, TV, game composers, and sound designers, HAVOC takes cinematic percussion to an entirely new level.
Recorded in a massive multi-car garage!
Wood, plastic, metal, and glass are among the many organic materials used, twisted, and morphed into HAVOC. From saws and chains, to buckets and drills, anything and everything one would find inside a garage was recorded.
Why not bring these tools to the recording studio?
Instead, HAVOC brings the recording studio to the garage. Everything was recorded in their natural habitat (a massive 24-car garage), the result of which was amazing acoustics and natural reverbs culminating in bigger and more cinematic sounds!

The user interface:
HAVOCS’ progressive user interface has been designed with the composer and sound designer in mind, providing effortless control for complete real-time customization. HAVOC is centered on user experience by providing the freedom to infinitely transform samples into evolving instruments with endless possibilities.
The interface includes:
- “Multi-core Effect Sequencers” for real-time effect automation
- “Triggers” – 48 unique effect chains
- “Arpeggigater” – sequencer based gate effect
- “LFO” section to make things wobble
- “Wave” – additive/subtractive synthesis engine
- “Pitch” sequencer for quick and easy pattern based transpositions on the fly
- “Multi Script Macros” (knobs & buttons) for real-time sequencing of instrument parameter controls
It is very easy to create a complete sound bed with Havoc, but add in some additional synth elements to taste and the combination can be absolutely massive. Havoc is as much fun as I've had with a sample library in a long while and, if you do indulge, be prepared to devote some time and effort to the exploration in order to fully realise the potential. For media composers or for the more experimental electronic musician, Havoc comes highly recommended; cheap it is not, but brilliant it most certainly is. John Walden
