Checking Out: Hammers by Spitfire Audio

by

Just a few minutes into using Hammers and I am hooked. Spitfire Audio teams up with acclaimed film composer Charlie Clouser (Saw, Resident Evil: Extinction, Nine Inch Nails) to deliver an explosive collection of drums and percussion. This collection contains distinct bite and sonic clarity with percussion instruments, an inspiring loops and “warps” collection, and top-notch usability thanks to a well-thought-out GUI and flexible keyboard layout.

Checking Out: Hammers by Spitfire Audio

Just a few minutes into using Hammers and I am hooked. After 15 minutes I had assembled a mock-up and easily understood the instrument options and functionality. This set of percussion has such a distinct sound yet allows for so much customization thanks to the microphone positions, mixes and FX. Sure, Hammers captures the sounds of Chalie Clouser’s percussion but that doesn’t mean every track you create with Hammers will sound like a Saw score, as the library offers the flexibility to sculpt the sonic playback of each drum or loop in many ways. Hammer’s will be very useful for both composers and songwriters looking for percussion, inspiration, and something new for their creations.

In this checking out video, I share a brief mock-up using Hammers and then do a deep dive into the library listening through all the percussion instruments, loops and warp playback and getting a feel for the functionality.
