Hybrid Transitions & Sound Design
ASSAULT is a massive suite of over 850 bone-crushing instruments and multis that transform sound design into superior cinematic percussive instruments.
In creating ASSAULT, Sample Logic teamed up with veteran broadcast sound design and sound effect mastermind Rick Allen to record a monumental collection of real-world material ranging from rifles, flame throwers, hand guns, jets, dumpsters, and monstrous pipes to bells, chimes, glass, and an arsenal of traditional percussive instruments. From this material, Sample Logic spent numerous hours carefully manipulating and morphing the sounds to forge a sample library that will no doubt be your secret weapon. ASSAULT is geared for film, TV, game composers and sound designers.
ASSAULT is intuitively organized and divided into a variety of unique categories such as: explosive impacts, rises & falls, interrupters, reverses, sweeps, scrapes, quick kits, tempo-synced arpeggiated rhythms and a collection of over 66 customized Multis that are deeply programmed and will send chills down your spine.
ASSAULT hosts a collection of unprecedented interface controls providing over 40 unique sections of onscreen effects and parameters. The interface is built upon Sample Logics renowned “multi-core effect sequencer, providing the ability to assign effects via tempo-synced step sequencers and LFOs to any instrument parameter, including the option to sequence the bypass function of each effect in real-time.
ASSAULT contains “Triggers that provides 48 unique effect chains that can be triggered by any one or combination of the six on-screen keypads, or by key-switches. With the touch of a pad or key, Triggers can be instantly activated or bypassed, allowing for complete on-the-fly performance control with the ability to drastically effect the sound of any instrument instantly and non-destructively..
One of the biggest features in ASSAULT are the powerful “Multi Script Macros, first introduced in Cinematic Guitars 2. Now more lethal than ever, Multi Script Macros can be automated by using the new macro knob step sequencers, resulting in real-time macro sequencing and instrument parameter control. On top of that, each of the 6 Macro knobs can be assigned to any combination of instrument parameters within a multi. Multi script macros are completely customizable and can be easily created and saved, simply add or subtract them by using the plus and minus buttons on the multi interface. By design, any combination of instrument interface parameters can be assigned to a single macro. Whether performing live or automating a multi in a DAW, Multi Script Macros are the perfect production solution.
For those of you who prefer to simply pull out the big guns, ASSAULT comes with over 66 customized Multis that are already locked and loaded.
Powerful preset templates combining various ASSAULT instruments into all-in-one presets.
So what’s the bottom line?
If you use impacts, transitions, sound fx, rises, falls, reverses…or any of these types of sounds in your musical creations…here’s the library to get.
Not only do you get tons of instruments to play with, but the interface is amazing in and of itself. With all the tools and animations it makes for a very usable instrument.
5subsI give ASSAULT 5 out of 5 subs, this is without a doubt a very deep and instantly rewarding library that sounds great, looks great, and is waiting to be tweaked.
Fazit: Assault ist weit mehr als nur eine umfangreiche Kollektion erstklassiger Effektklänge und -rhytthmen sowie expressiver Sounddesign Elemente. Die tiefgehenden Eingriffsmöglichkeiten machen die Library zu einem mächtigen Kreativwerkzeug für Medienkomponisten und Sounddesigner und alle, die ihre Tracks mit futuristischen Akzenten veredeln möchten. Auch die hervorragende Bedienoberfläche lässt beide Daumen nach oben schnellen.
6 von 6 Punkten!
Aussault empfiehlt sich für düstere und aggressive Musikgenres und bietet eine Vielzahl hervorragen klingender Effekte, Impacts und Trasnitions. Die mit kreative Werkzeugen bestückte Benutzeroberfläche lädt zum experimentieren ein und erweitert die Möglichkeiten der hochwertigen Aufnahmen um ein Vielfaches
Sample Logic's Assault places a distinct emphasis on explosive cinematic effects. What Assault lacks in subtlety it more than makes up for powerful, earcrunching hits and transitions. 8 out of 10 points
