Percussion Factory was designed to be a modern all-in-one solution for creative percussion sounds, sequences, and performance equipped with an advanced engine offering intelligent preset generation, real-time sequence modifiers, morphable groove, a creative topology outfitted for sound design, over 1,000 percussion sounds, 4,000+ sequences capturing traditional music styles from around the world, native user sample support, and much more.
Percussion Factory does a lot, and importantly it makes it easy to do. Much of the design complexity sits below the surface, resulting in a streamlined and intuitive experience that puts creativity at the forefront. Whether you are focusing on instrument design, sequencing, or mixing, dedicated views give you the correct level of detail for the task at hand, while sophisticated tools and a clever use of machine learning help you to achieve great sounding results with ease.
Percussion Factory includes a large and versatile library of percussion sounds collected from all over the world. Organized into categories such as Hand Drums, Shaken, Metal, Friction and Wood, over 1,000 unique sound layers are available, delivering everything from authentic regional percussion ensembles to heavily processed sounds, available as both single instruments and thoughtfully designed kits. If you need more, user samples are natively supported via handy drag- and-drop.
The sequencer section of Percussion Factory includes a number of innovative features such as sample auto-alignment, dynamic sequence modifiers, morphable groove and more. All samples have been pre-processed to determine their rhythmic high-point and are automatically snapped to the sequencer grid providing exceptionally tight transient profiles, meanwhile a morphable groove engine and per-part offset allow you to push and pull your sequences off-grid at will.
Percussion Factory's 'Sound' editor gives you full control over each sounds amplitude profile, pitch, and multimode filter. The filter's cutoff includes a probabilistic cutoff control, allowing you to easily introduce a variable/humanistic quality to your sound. Meanwhile each part's FX section delivers a number of creative effects including Crusher, Flanger, Frequency Shifter, EQ, and sends for Delay and IR Reverb with a massive selection of impulse responses, giving you everything you need to make subtle mix corrections or radical sound shaping.
Percussion Factory was designed for hands-on use and excels as a performance-based instrument. With features like realtime sequence decimation, dedicated solo and mute keys, per- part evolution, and performance macros it's easy to take control of the groove and create evolving rhythms that follow your lead. Gone are the days of working with static loops, experience rhythm as it should be, with movement, progression, and a human touch.
