Apocalypse Elements comes with two patches: “Lite” and “Master” – the “Lite” patch being a cut down version of the full “Master” patch for those who wish to to conserve ram and CPU resources.

The library itself is further divided into three main instrument types:

  • “Ensemble All” which you customize key-mapping for each articulation, or chose from several standard drum map presets.
  • “Megamixer Preset” which has eight selectable slots, where each can contain one articulation and each has several separate parameters.
  • “Tuned Dual-Layer”  which brings together all of the available articulations for each instrument set into a chromatically playable dual-layered instrument bank.

The 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.

Built In Arpeggiator to Create Instant Rhythmic Percussive Patterns

Also included in each patch is an Arpeggiator, allowing you to create, save and load your own rhythmic step sequences and simulate complex single-stroke roll patterns.

Keep it simple, or get in-depth and change the pitch, swing, rhythm and more!

The arpeggiator lets you instantly create a moving rhythmic pattern – get fast moving boomy toms, or high end ticki-ticki cymbal sounds in seconds, adding movement to any track.

400 Midi Grooves From Featured Artists

Apocalypse Elements includes 400 midi grooves created by a range of talented artists including Blake Ewing, Dirk Ehlert, Ian Dorsch, Johnny Knittle, Marie-Anne Fischer, Sascha Knorr, Si Begg and more.

You can also load, playback and manipulate hundreds of Midi drum loops included with this library.

The main features include controls over quantize, swing, velocity, tempo and mapping (allowing you to load common drum map templates used by a number of popular drum kit libraries).

    I love this sound library (and it’s worth every €/$, but.. issues:

    —–

    Master > Megamixer > APE:
    APE Elements All Megamixer.nki:

    Instrument – Ensemble Dhol:
    Articulation: Clack
    -A sample in the round robin does not sound.
    Same behavior (in the same instrument/articulation group) is present in:
    –APE Elements Ensemble Clack Mixer.nki
    –APE Elements Ensemble Ethnic Drum Mixer.nki
    –APE Elements Ensemble Clacks Tuned.nki
    –APE Elements Ethnic Drums Tuned.nki
    –APE Elements All Megamixer Lite.nki
    –APE Elements Ensemble Clacks Tuned Lite.nki
    –APE Elements Ethnic Drums Tuned Lite.nki
    (WORK AROUND: under the hood (mapping editor); In group “30 dhol clack” – Copy over another set of samples in the group, to the empty spot at D#-2 (or.. if you’re REALLY adventurous.. try loading in all the appropriate samples and arrange them (in the same fashion as the others) in the mapping editor))

    Instrument – Ensemble Frame:
    Articulation: Hit 2
    -Articulation does not load.
    Same behavior is present in:
    –APE Elements All Megamixer Lite.nki

    Instrument – Ensemble Sticks:
    Articulation: Hit 1
    -Articulation does not load.
    Same behavior is present in:
    –APE Elements All Megamixer Lite.nki

    No work around for the non-loading articulations, that I know of (unfortunately).. they are locked under a script.

    Regardless of the issues.. totally worth the money. Just hoping for a fix/update from Soundiron in the near future.

      UPDATE:

      Everything you need to fix these issues (including the non-loading articulations) are basically in…:

      -APE Elements All.nki
      -APE Elements All Lite.nki

      …if you don’t mind putting in some cut & paste effort.

      Turns out the scripting is fine.. it’s just that, somewhere along the way, some of the samples weren’t placed in their in the mapping editor. Kontakt is complicated, and $#!+ totally happens…

      Still knocking off a star for these issues.. but would put this library up against anything Heavyocity has ever produced.
