The "ARK Facility" is a collection of libraries, comprised of several volumes, each of which has a single or multiple Kontakt instruments.
The entire series is centered on unusual percussion sounds with a lot of editing possibilities and several onboard effects. Each Volume (called “Level n”) has a distinctive set of basic sounds that can be used for composing and producing purposes - like a drum machine - as well as for soundtrack composition and sound design in films, videogames and any other multimedia product.
The first volume (called “Level 1”) is a single instrument library with several percussion sounds and a lot of sound manipulation possibilities.

Some good quirky sounds, but limited
I like the harsh electronic percussion samples available here, I just wish there was a bit wider range of samples available and some more useful presets. It's almost not worth loading the instrument and tweaking the few sounds here to get something you want. I get it that the price is low and there are several sequel products, but I'd rather buy them in an all-in one instrument.
Some cool and nice percussion sounds in here.
