ASSAULT contains “Triggers” that provides 48 unique effect chains that can be triggered by any one or combination of the six on-screen keypads, or by key-switches. With the touch of a pad or key, Triggers can be instantly activated or bypassed, allowing for complete on-the-fly performance control with the ability to drastically effect the sound of any instrument instantly and non-destructively.
MULTI SCRIPT MACROS
One of the biggest features in ASSAULT are the powerful "Multi Script Macros", first introduced in Cinematic Guitars 2. Now more lethal than ever, Multi Script Macros can be automated by using the new macro knob step sequencers, resulting in real-time macro sequencing and instrument parameter control. On top of that, each of the 6 Macro knobs can be assigned to any combination of instrument parameters within a multi. Multi script macros are completely customizable and can be easily created and saved, simply add or subtract them by using the plus and minus buttons on the multi interface. By design, any combination of instrument interface parameters can be assigned to a single macro. Whether performing live or automating a multi in a DAW, Multi Script Macros are the perfect production solution.

Punishingly brilliant! As a drummer, it’s tough for me to get amped about percussive libraries, but as soon as I loaded up ASSAULT the ideas ignited like a vapor fire. SAMPLE LOGIC has a lock on fashioning mercurial beasts that sweat and bleed and scream and terrorize — which makes them a hell of a lot of fun to tame… Well done!
A relentless tornado of industrial brutality, beauty and chaos.
