9 Soundware Releases Concussion EXS24 Instrument

Concussion by 9 Soundware is an instrument in EXS24 format. Based on acoustic impact sounds created entirely with found objects, the sounds contained are intended to augment or be used as an alternative to traditional drum and percussion instruments.
The instrument is constructed from samples of objects being struck, thrown, dropped, and manipulated in a variety of other ways. Among the items used in the recordings are sheet metal, furniture, auto parts, a flyswatter, chains, mousetraps, pipes, and a cardboard box. Examples include the sounds of a large piece of sheet metal being struck with a metal rod, furniture being slammed against the studio wall, a small chain being dropped onto a paint roller tray, and air produced from flinging a stick. These samples were designed to work together to form an atypical, yet versatile, rhythmic instrument.
Concussion, which features 6 sound categories (Air, Metal, Paper, Plastic, Wood, and Miscellaneous), includes 106 sounds (sampled at 1-5 velocities) that are mapped across a 9 octave range in an EXS24 instrument.
The 18 MB download includes 1 .EXS file and 194 WAV files (24-bit/44.1 kHz).
Pricing and Availability:
Concussion is available now for $19.99 More information:
