A dynamic new Standard for cinematic Percussive Metals.
Master Sessions: Ensemble Metals - the third installment in the line of percussion-based virtual instruments. Created by the composers behind NYC’s renowned Heavy Melody Music & Sound Design, Ensemble Metals adds a diverse collection of kits & loops to the already-compelling percussion elements of the Master Sessions line. Ranging from intricate highs to booming lows (and nearly everything in between), Master Sessions: Ensemble Metals sets a dynamic new standard for cinematic percussive metals.
Complete with 12 unique multi-sampled metal ensembles and over 300 tempo-synced loops, Ensemble Metals delivers over 2.5 GB of professional percussive content. Heavyocity returned to the intimate confines of Bunker Studios in NYC to capture a litany of metal objects and materials, with timbres ranging from epic and punchy (kegs & trash cans), to penetrating and sharp (railroad spikes & pipes). Captured in simultaneous six-player ensembles, and then processed with Heavyocity’s signature sound design skill, Ensemble Metals is THE must-have metals instrument for the serious cinematic composer.
Ensemble Metals - Kits
The 12 ensembles run the gamut of epic and punchy (kegs & trash cans), to sharp and penetrating (railroad spikes & pipes). These ensembles ooze with playable metallic character, and are presented in both menu and single kit presets, providing complete mastery of your sound. Mix and shape your sound using Heavyocity’s proprietary interface containing global effects (reverb, delay, distortion, and chorus mod), per-metal EQ, per-channel ADSR, TriggerFX, and the signature Punish and Twist knobs.
Ensemble Metals – Loops
Ensemble Metals - Loops contains over 300 tempo-synced phrases arranged in menu and single loop presets. As an exciting new feature, the content is now divided into straight and triplet loops. Rearrange and adjust the loops by slice with Heavyocity’s signature “Loop Mutator”. Dial in the Trigger FX, master effects, filter modulation and ADSR for radical sonic results.
The included content is complemented by an advanced yet intuitive user interface featuring the Stage (Kits & Collection only), advanced Trigger FXTM and Heavyocity’s signature PunishTM knob. With the proprietary Loop Mutator™ technology (Loops & Collection only), users can sequence, re-compose and manipulate loops in new and exciting ways.
