A fresh percussion instrument that takes its cues from the beat of the city. FRAGMENTS combines snippets of organic sounds to generate refreshing and complicated, low-key rhythms and beats that work well in both cinematic, ambient, and experimental contexts alike.

Capture the unpredictability of human nature with our deep randomization options, unlocking limitless variation to your rhythms. FRAGMENTS makes it easy to determine new sequences or subtly fill in the gaps and make a tremendous cacophony of chaotic slaps, ticks, and kicks. And all the SONUSCORE way – with the turn of a knob.

• FRAGMENTS is an original percussion instrument that takes inspiration from everyday noises and non-traditional percussive sounds.
• FRAGMENTS' intricate rhythms come from three sequencers linked to independent sound slots.
• Make your cinematic and ambient compositions stand out using FRAGMENTS.
• FRAGMENTS is a percussive instrument that captures the spirit of the post-postmodern day.

FRAGMENTS is a percussion instrument built from sounds that aren’t typically found in your standard percussion library. Each sound was recorded in twelve round robins and up to five velocity layers, with an FX and randomization engine that gives the feeling of a truly human touch (literally, since we even used parts of the human body!).

Each beat generator features a sequencer with two randomization features: one lays out the initial pattern and the other shakes it up with every turn. It also includes control over our Density feature that fills out the sound and adds hits of varying velocities to every silent step.

Each layer of the engine functions off its own five layers that you can turn on and off, or customize the sound further by allowing the engine to randomly select sounds and panning position.

From bread and butter to cinematic and experimental, we’ve designed a vast array of presets to get you started. From over 100 presets, begin your percussion journey the right way.

With FRAGMENTS’ ingenious controls, it’s surprisingly simple to create a unique, intricate sound.

Each of the three layers has their own independent design options that allow you to craft your own sounds and rhythms quickly and easily with FRAGMENTS.

The Bass and Snare slots feature 3 organic sounds each recorded with 12 round robins, while the Fragments slot contains 17 sounds. Sounds can be selected by their source: Wood, Metal, Mechanical, Body, or a sound you drag-and-drop into the User section. Control which sounds are sourced, the panning, or make it all random.

The hidden secret of the sequencer is the Density option, which fills in the gaps at random velocities. This can be tied to the modwheel, allowing you to easily switch between minimal and complex rhythms.

Determine how to control the Tone and Density options on your MIDI keyboard. Set the minimum and maximum for each to tighten the design function.

Some people like to have their own recorded sounds in their productions. We make it easy to blend in your personal touch with the complicated rhythms of FRAGMENTS. Simply drag-and-drop your sound to the icon and add it in on the Main Screen.

Many composers are looking for that modern, found sound vibe to complete their cinematic masterpieces. FRAGMENTS takes those bits of everyday life and turns them into an integral part of any soundscape. With FRAGMENTS, you can make any project have that modern edge.

All the sounds were recorded with 12 round robins, ensuring a complete human feel to the sound. Depending on the source, they have up to 5 velocity layers using an array of high-quality mics and were painstakingly recorded in our sound engineer’s own at-home pillow fortress of solitude.

FRAGMENTS lets composers add that unique, modern percussion flavor without having to do the street work of micing and capturing those sounds. We’ve done that handiwork for you so you can get back to the desk and get to writing your next great work.
