Uncharted 88

The Damaged Piano

The Heavyocity team broke down a piano to its rawest, most intimate-sounding sources — every inch of the instrument, including the strings, the iron plate, the wood frame, and more was used to create new and unique percussive elements in this experimental VST plugin.

Ensemble Designer

With over 235 playable percussion sources, the Ensemble Designer offers an array of uniquely inspiring, fully customizable, highly playable, and painstakingly detailed elements.

Curated Loops

Let your creativity flow with a massive collection of curated loops in this experimental VST plugin. Instant cue starters and tension-building grooves are made possible by these dynamic percussive beds — ranging from eerie and thriller-esque to mysterious and experimental.

From deeply sampled mallet, hammer, and brush strikes, to scraped strings, to the brutal Damage Piano Hits and transitions, this new chapter in modern experimental percussion was captured exclusively from the guts of a piano.


Chock-full of over 18,600 samples and 11 GB of visceral, organic content, suspenseful impacts, and thought-provoking loops, this deeply-sampled experimental percussion VST will push your sonic palette into UNCHARTED territory.


The dynamic Damage 2 engine provides three unique instruments to deliver a uniquely inspiring and customizable workflow brimming with unconventional percussive sources.


Yeah, nobody does hard-hitting, cinematic percussion like Heavyocity, and UNCHARTED 88 continues that tradition with unique, expressive organic percussion recorded from the original DAMAGE piano board.
