Humanize Engine

The integrated Humanize engine offers a breakthrough dimension in realism for the Vir2 Global Percussion. The scripting engine underneath World Impact will intelligently vary the pitch, timing, and volume of each hit by minuscule amounts to increase the diversity of timbre produced. Each aspect of the Humanize engine, from extreme effects to complete bypassing, can be controlled by the user.


The Vir2 World Impact Plug-in features an innovative EZRoom engine which provides a convolution reverb option, allowing the user to instantly place the percussion instruments in one of more than fifty different custom sonic spaces. A huge range of acoustic environments are included, providing everything from chapels and halls to caverns, small rooms, and unique esoteric space. When EZRoom is activated, new knobs for dry and wet levels appear, allowing full control over the level and balance of the convoluted sound.

Articulations and Triggers

A built-in articulations and trigger engine provides advanced and customizable control over advanced parameters such as choke, flam, 3-stroke roll (16th notes), 3-stroke roll (32nd notes), 3-stroke roll (64th notes), roll (32nd notes), and roll (64th notes). Each of these are tempo-synced as appropriate and can be customized.


"World Impact's sounds are expressive and full of detail...should easily cover most, if not all of your ethnic percussion needs."

EQ Magazine
