Fracture Sounds Release Tom Factory

Fracture Sounds have released Tom Factory, the second in their series of Epic Ensembles, available at the intro price of £99.00, increasing to £149.00 after the promotion.

Tom Factory delivers an expertly curated set of high octane drum ensembles. Perfect for composers scoring to action-packed trailers, blockbusters, and more. The tools provided in this library offer an elegant solution to adding a cinematic edge to your percussion writing.

Fracture Sounds assembled 5 performers and and over 35 drums including Roto Toms, Octobans, Concert Toms, Kick Drums, and spent 3 days capturing over 80 articulations, from solo drums to a range of hard-hitting ensemble configurations.

Tom Factory is designed to be an all-in-one cinematic tom library, featuring an incredibly diverse range of sounds, recorded in a stunning acoustic space, expertly processed into 6 diverse mixes, and presented in an easy-to-use Kontakt interface.

Concert Toms

The concert toms are the centrepiece of Tom Factory. They differ from regular drum kit toms as they don’t have a bottom (resonant) skin, providing a more accurate and punchy tone. Traditionally used in Concert Band setups, concert toms are increasingly making their way into hard-hitting blockbuster scores.
We captured a selection of concert toms of different sizes and tunings (10-18 inches) in solo and ensemble configurations.


Some of the most recent additions to the percussion family are the Octobans. First coming to prominence in the popular music world during the late 1970s, they have more recently found a place in cinematic scores.
The Octobans each have the same six inch head, with the varience in their pitches coming from the size of the body.

Roto Toms

Roto toms feature a tight head with no shell, which results in a sharp and resonant tone, with a signature ‘pitch bend’ effect on the loudest dynamics. Their tone contrasts beautifully with the more full-bodied concert toms, and means they can be used very effectively in combination with the other drums in the library. 7 different pitches of roto toms are included in Tom Factory, ranging from 6-14 inches in size.

Kick Drums

Despite being primarily a tom library, we couldn’t resist also including kick drums, for adding a solid and punchy low-end to the sound palette. The kick drums in Tom Factory are performed in the typical way using pedals, and also with soft beaters in the ‘deep ensemble’ articulation.

The most noteworthy material in Tom Factory has to be the ensemble articulations. Utilising the wealth of experience amongst our team of composers, percussionists and engineers, we meticulously curated 40 ensemble articulations, tailored for modern cinematic music.

Features include:

  • Over 35 drums, with 82 articulations in total.
  • Recorded in a beautiful acoustic space, with 3 mixable microphone positions.
  • Housed in our Factory engine with intuitive sound shaping controls and articulation customisation
  • 6 bespoke mixes ranging from natural to punchy and aggressive.
  • 72 NKI patches, and the ability to build your own.
  • Innovative rhythm animator with velocity and filter sequencers.
  • Full NKS support – works with Komplete Kontrol hardware.
  • 15GB download size (NCW compressed from a 43GB sample pool).
  • Download through Native Access.
