Make an impact with an explosive collection of drums and percussion. Created with acclaimed film composer Charlie Clouser (Saw, Resident Evil: Extinction, Nine Inch Nails), Hammers offers over 1,000 cinematic sounds spanning over 50 different drums, including detailed hits, ensembles, performance loops, and genre-bending warps.

Supercharge your compositions with energetic performances recorded in a Brutalist space composed of concrete, glass, and steel—allowing for a uniquely sharp attack and controlled reverb. A must-have for composers and producers of all levels, Hammers will elevate your scores for action, drama, horror, TV procedurals, game music and more.

Hammers was developed to quickly give you access to a cutting-edge collection of eclectic drums, percussion, and scrap metals; these sounds are tailored for use in film genres, video games, and trailers. With its ultra-hyped, broadcast-ready sounds, Hammers is immediately playable and instantly satisfying. Recorded, processed, mixed, curated, and produced by composer Charlie Clouser, this library features 100% all-new recordings, specially crafted for this collection.

Hammers features 58 Drums across 8 drum types—Bass Drums, Surdos, Toms, Roto-Toms, Darbukas, Frame Drums, Scrap Metals, and Snares. Captured in an acoustic environment to allow for fast-paced, hard-hitting performances, with a wide range of mic, mix and warp signals, and a choice of 12 distinctive reverbs, this library gives you effortless control over extremely powerful drum performances. 
These are hard, brash sounds with fast attacks and tight, controlled decays allowing for clear and legible patterns when played at speed.

Hits are presented in a format that allows you to easily perform and sculpt your own rhythms, all captured in brilliant detail, with over 130 techniques in total. Hammers features a mix of performance techniques, beater types, including options for drum head tightness. These controls give you unparalleled access to a wide variety of unique tonalities, adding a deeply humanistic feel to your drum and percussion cues. Need to push things harder? Go big with the 2 and 4 players hits, delivering the natural resonance between the drums heard on the performances and instantly create huge sounds without the need for duplicating tracks. The default Ensembles patch gives you quick access to the entire collection of instruments, conveniently spread across the keyboard, perfect for trying out the sounds and for adding flourishes to the performance loops. 

Hammers features over 400 performance loops composed and performed by Charlie Clouser himself, with help from first-call percussionists Hal Rosenfeld and Lucas Fehring. Carefully composed in 8 bar loop phrases and delivered to give you the ability to build your own version of patterns by stacking and rearranging via clear keymapping, breaking up loops, and end hits, so you can control and develop the performances to suit your needs. 
Rather than record a single collection of loops and stretch them to work at various speeds, Charlie composed each loop to be appropriate for their respective tempos—70, 90 110, 130, and 150 BPMs—with each range offering some shared and different sets of performances to work within that tempo. Slower patterns feature more minimal performances, and faster loops are composed with more energy and movement to propel action. Conveniently, every performance loop automatically syncs to the host tempo. This approach means you can work at a variety of tempo ranges and you’ll be able to find rhythmic continuity across the various loop groups, allowing a musically cohesive result across your compositions.

The Warped Loops capture the heavily processed sounds that Charlie is known. Charlie treated the loops using the same time-consuming and intricate techniques that he developed when working on Nine Inch Nails albums and refined for use in his film scores. Vintage and modern synths, step sequencers, a huge modular system, and 40 years of collecting guitar pedals and high-end rack-mounted processors all contributed to the huge sonic range waiting for you to discover. All of the warps feature 12 signals, each a unique form of warped processing of the same source material, created by Charlie, allowing for a large variety of timbres and tonalities. 

Taken as a whole, the versatility and the immense variety of sonics in the Warps is unmatched and will provide endless fuel for modern hybrid compositions, from dark and moody slow-paced moments, through restrained tension, all the way up to frantic, intense action sequences.

Informed by Charlie Clouser’s years of experience producing bands like White Zombie and playing keyboards in Nine Inch Nails, as well as composing music for all nine of the Saw films, Resident Evil: Extinction, Wayward Pines, and others, this library offers music makers a wide selection of widescreen drum sounds to fit any production. Two and a half years in the making, from idealization to execution and completion, with Charlie personally obsessing over every element, from development to recording and processing. Hammers is the ultimate result of a perfect marriage of Charlie’s Brutalist, industrial vision and experience in producing and composing, combined with Spitfire Audio’s comprehensive approach to sampling.
