Apocalypse Elements is a potent selection of aggressive soundtrack drums and cymbals for the free Kontakt Player, Komplete Kontrol and the S-Series Keyboard platform by Native Instruments. This library is an epic percussion powerhouse built for efficient workflow and incredible sound, with over 40 different drums, over 100 articulations, deep dynamic layering and 8 round-robin variations per velocity.
You’ll find thunderous ensemble and solo bass drums, roaring ensemble and solo toms of all sizes, a massive 8-member snare ensemble and 6 different solo snares ranging from deep 14” wooden bodied snares all the way down to tiny 5” effect snares, ethnic drums of all shapes and sizes, clicks, clacks, hi-hats, stick and mallet rides, crashes, splashes, hybrid China crash, fx cymbals, gongs, Tibetan finger cymbals and much more.
Built from our epic percussion flagship – the 25 GB Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble – this lighter edition is slimmed down to the put maximum punch into a compact footprint and unbeatable price point accessible to everyone. Focusing on a close/stage stereo mic position and standard single-stroke multisampled articulations, it’s built to be immediately intuitive and easy to play.
You can use our expressive “Standard” presets for instant access to all of the drums in a classic keyboard layout. The “Ensemble All” preset lets you customize key-mapping for each articulation, or chose from several standard drum map presets. Our user interface gives you instant control over the sound, whether you want a huge hall sound or a dry, punchy studio sound, with automation-ready parameters to shape dynamics, room release, attack, transient offset, tuning, velocity response, and so much more.
