First Impressions: PercX Pro by Auddict

by

So much more than a loop player, PercX is a grand collection of great-sounding multi-sampled instruments housed in an intuitive and very stable standalone plugin in a powerful sequencing engine.

This might be the only percussion instrument you need and with confirmed plans of new kits in development, it might be future-proof as well.

UPDATED: After another couple days with the instrument I am loving it even more than my first impressions and awarding it the SLR Top Pick award. I have also added the 2nd official walkthrough video of the instrument below, which cover sequencing and other deeper aspects of the library that I didn’t cover in my first impression video.

First Impressions: PercX Pro by Auddict

In this video, I share my first impressions of the library. This video is in no way a full review. After getting the instrument downloaded I was truly pleased with just how intuitive it was to use and how great the playback sounded. I was really happy that the plugin seems to be incredibly stable and pretty easy on my CPU.

The library loads up with what looks like a loop player. Digging a little deeper you see that PercX is triggering multi-sampled instruments meaning tempo changes will never degrade the signal and you will not get artifacts. What’s more the library does have a multi-sampled mode for each track making expanding the instrument far beyond what my first impressions were.

I am loving PercX already and am stopping just short of saying that this might be the only percussion instrument you need for most epic/trailer or film scoring situations. What’s more is that the PercX Pro instrument comes with 5 kits and the developer has confirmed they plan on releasing more kits in the future.

Note that the instrument also is available as PercX Core with only the Core kit included. Additional kits can be had for $49 at the time of posting.

PercX Pro sells for $299 from Auddict
