Sound Dust tells us that their latest Kontakt instrument, KICKTOM, is (surprise surprise) made entirely from many, many kicks and floor toms. A spokesperson told us, "It doesn't have a sexy name because it has one simple job - to build beat based backing from the bottom up. Low end beats, percussive rumble, punch, thump and a bit of thwack. All quickly available at your fingertips with an easy to use but complex BPM synced sequencer engine and 11 algorithmic playback engines for every single note."
