Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble v2.0 is our industry leading scoring percussion masterpiece. And now with the launch of the brand new v2.0, were pushing it to a whole new level. This isnt just an update – its a complete rebirth. This massive drum & cymbal collection is truly unmatched in the sampling world. Now weighing in at nearly 25 GB with over 25,000 samples, APE delivers astounding depth, detail, fidelity, and user freedom. It features more than 40 different drums and close to 200 articulations. Youll find thunderous ensemble sections and solo instruments of all shapes and sizes, including bass drums, a whole array of toms, dhols, riqs, frame drums, bongos, cajons, doumbeks, clicks, clacks, a massive snare ensemble and 6 solo snare drum types. Youll also find fully expressive pedal-articulated hi-hats, stick and mallet rides, crashes, splashes, hybrid and FX cymbals, a 38″ gong, heavy Tibetan ting shag finger cymbals, all deeply multisampled along with tons of rolls, crescendos and effects.

We here at Soundiron are no strangers to epic percussion. Those who know our work are familiar with the passion, exacting precision and attention to detail we deliver. Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble is the culmination of all of our years of experience, distilled into the most comprehensive and earth-shaking hall percussion package available anywhere on the market. We set out to build a monster that punched harder, rumbled deeper, cut through the mix cleaner and got the job done like no other could. We wanted a massive sound and responsive playability, without compromising user flexibility and choice. APE has a sound that just works right out of the box, with all of the beef and none of the noise. This beast gets it done.

Functionality

Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble was recorded in the same acoustically-balanced hall as our famous Olympus Symphonic Choir (Mars & Venus), Mercury Symphonic Boychoir, Montclarion Hall Piano, Struck Grand Piano, Cymbology, Anklung and Tuned Artillery libraries, so it blends perfectly with a whole host of great libraries. We captured it over an exhaustive two week session, recording late into the night. With trucked in a mountain of drums an cymbals and pounded on them with every kind of stick, mallet and blunt instrument we could find. Once the blood and wood chips had settled, we had captured an average of 12 round-robin per velocity layer with up to 14 velocities each. We then painstakingly programmed each instrument with a galaxy of comprehensive and exclusive control and playability features and a totally smooth workflow. Weve expanded the library with a wide range of uniquely powerful tools that let you personalize the library to your own needs and push it far beyond any other percussion library in its class.

Each instrument features 3 independent microphone positions per articulation. The primary close mic position is captured within a foot of the drum heads to capture all of the deep tonality and resonance and every exquisite detail. The Mid position is set back 12 feet to get that all-around perfect live sound and the far position is 50 feet from the stage to deliver a rich, lush distant feel. Microphone channel mixing is easy with our pop-up Mixer panel. You can load just the positions you need to save ram and voices and independently adjust and automate each level. In the main Master presets, you can even assign each mic position to its own Kontakt audio output for surround sound routing, external effects processing and complete mixing freedom.

Screen 2

“Standard” presets are included to provide instant access to the full library in a classic percussion array layout. The primary “Ensemble All” preset lets you customize the note mapping for each articulation or load one of several common drum library mapping standards. This comes in handy with our new MIDI loop playback feature, which allows users to load and playback loops from a wide range of popular drum libraries. The improved Megamixer system allows for up to 8 slots, each with independent tuning, velocity attenuation, pitch, panning, key mapping, room release and more, and complete Kit preset saving/loading. “Mixer” presets group a set of articulations into 4 different fully customizable categories. For example, “Cymbals Mixer” splits cymbals into categories of ride, crash, hihat and gong/ting shag; each category has independent volume, pan, room release, velocity and pitch controls. Finally, the Tuned Dual-Layer presets allow you to create multi-layered tuned articulations from any ofthe articulations for each sub-section. These are ideal for sound design, special effects, or simply turning any of the sounds into a unique tuned percussion instrument.
