Impact: Steel

Impact: Steel was intended to fill a gap found in popular commercial sound libraries. While several other products have metal hits and “found” percussion, none are extensively sampled and usable as individual, expressive instruments. The goal of this project was therefore to create a unique, detailed, and playable library with the same amount of multi-sampled detail one would expect from a high-end percussion bank.

Impact: Steel was designed to be as playable as possible, on both drum controllers as well as MIDI keyboards. As such, all main patches are key mapped without overlap, and can be loaded on a single channel for instant playability of all instruments. On a MIDI keyboard, hits are mapped to black keys, while scrapes, rolls, and tremolos are mapped to white keys. This increases ease of playing for composers without dedicated drum controllers.
