Sample Logic breaks new ground with IMPAKT — A suite of over 850 breathtaking morphed concert percussion instruments and multis that will blow you away. This diverse collection of instruments ranges from dramatically twisted marimbas and xylophones, blissful chimes and bells to massively transfigured timpani, gongs, bass drums, cymbals, and a variety of world percussion instruments.
IMPAKT also includes a complimentary set of traditional concert percussion instruments.
All sounds were recorded on the Scoring Stage at Skywalker Sound (a Lucasfilm Ltd. Company) under the direction of renowned percussionist Jim Wunderlich and System Blue, the result of which is a comprehensive library that contains both traditional instruments and an evocative collection of morphed cinematic instruments, transitions, atmospheres, leads, impacts, and tempo-synced rhythms.

STUNNING USER INTERFACE
IMPAKT’s spectacular user interface was designed with the composer and sound designer in mind, providing effortless control for complete customization. IMPAKT is all about user experience with the freedom to infinitely transform samples into awesome evolving instruments with endless possibilities.
RE-ENGINEER THE SOUND
All of the traditional instruments in IMPAKT were recorded and programmed so the end user has total control of the multiple microphone mix (Close, Mid, Far, Rear, Sub, Wavetables), using a newly designed mixer section. Additionally, the entire listening perspective of any traditional instrument can be manipulated, using a new 3D-sound engine called “Space”. Space includes a visual mixing console for easily changing the listening perspective to any location in a theater. From standing behind the stage to sitting all the way in the back row of the theater, each instrument can be moved around for the perfect mix when combining instruments together.
I give Impakt 5 out of 5 subs, the interface is very easy to use, the sound quality is amazing, and the variety of textures provides the user with a very complete feeling sound design library.
