Description: An incredible tool for creating amazingly beautiful, creepy and complex soundscapes.
Impromptu Textural Percussions is a unique experimental instrument for Kontakt 6, consisting of 30 individual instruments and over 5 GB of samples (uncompressed).
It is dedicated to creating amazingly beautiful, eerie and complex soundscapes using only percussion instruments recorded by percussionist extraordinaire Hugh Wilkinson. The ITP is a fantastic improvisation tool and will be a great addition to your acoustic arsenal.
The instrument is also provided with a number of designer patches using various percussion as source material. All of them have an incredible organic quality. The centerpiece of the ITP is the Impromptu Engine; a system that combines loops of improvised, out-of-sync fragments with a granular synthesizer to create unique and unusual atmospheric sounds.
We have recorded 3 round robins in 3 different layers that you can smoothly transition between using the central control.
Playing a note with the modulation wheel fully down will cause a rare impromptu loop at that pitch; start moving the mod wheel up to gradually move to the middle and finally to the denser layer.
Along with the Impromptu patches for Glockenspiel, Vibraphone and Crotales, we have also created Impromptu bonus patches of cymbals (Chinese, 17” and 18”) and snare drum (playable with both brushes and sticks): these are more experimental in nature and perhaps their not so easy to use, but they can lead to some pretty interesting sounds. Crotales, cymbals, glockenspiel, vibraphone and waterphone are also available as bowed instruments. These patches are great for creating a beautiful airy vibe.
We’ve also included 82 Snapshots to help speed up your workflow and also give you a starting point for creating your own incredible textures.
