"Barrage sounds great! Super well recorded and the velocity splits and round-robins are very well executed - it just plays really well, really naturally, and can slot into a mix easily without poking out or disappearing. Nicely done!"
- Charlie Clouser (composer, Saw franchise, Wayward Pines, former member of Nine Inch Nails)
BARRAGE - Cinematic Percussion Designer is the result of our quest to create not only a great collection of larger than life epic drum hits, but also allow you to decide exactly what elements these hits are comprised of!
Our unique ENSEMBLE DESIGNER layout gives you total flexibility, allowing you to not only stack elements into giant hits, but also perform your own rhythm with ensemble hits, accents, low/sub elements, and sound designed hit tails in real time. On top of the ensemble content in BARRAGE, we have also included a wealth of single drums and expertly sound designed percussion!
The BARRAGE user interface also gives you complete control over the most crucial parameters. An on-screen mixer featuring three microphone positions grants you total control over the mix, as well as the ability to load/unload mixes and mute/solo options while tweaking your sound. The built-in FX section gives you several sonic shaping possibilities with the included SLAM (transient shaping & compression), CRUSH (saturation), DELAY (including synced musical values for delay time), and REVERB effects.
