Carefully selected the best elements from our X3M collections with orchestral, ethnic and cinematic percussion ensembles powered by the famous X3M engine allow you to freely combine and match patches yourself.
The Percussion Essentials X3M brings together the highlights of our X3M series of percussion instruments developed over the past 9 years. This collection is the perfect starting point for aspiring composers and producers, as well as veterans looking to expand their voiceover palette or need an easy-to-use tool. With three microphone positions recorded in an ambient concert hall. A ready-to-use tool for any situation.
The concept behind the engine is quite simple – the keyboard range is divided into 12 zones to which you can assign different sounds. After creating a template of your choice, just plug and play – nothing else is needed! In addition to this, the slider also allows you to customize individual zones as well as the entire associated ensemble patch with different effects and mic positions. When combined with natural and organic recordings, you get maximum flexibility when it comes to sound.
After loading the X3M Ensemble Builder, you automatically load all samples into the Samples directory. However, the instrument is designed in such a way that it actually keeps all samples free if you don’t load them into the zone. This means that you not only have one patch with all the types of percussion you might need, but it is also optimized and will not harm your RAM resources in any way!
The newly updated X3M Engine also features Round Robin Selection, as well as Stereo Spread control for each mic position, and a Mic Equalization feature to control density between different microphones.
