Soniccouture has released version 1.1 of the Skiddaw Stones, a Kontakt sample library featuring a lithophone composed of 61 tuned and shaped rocks, made from the rare hornfels stone, found in Cumbria, England.
We’ve given Skiddaw Stones a cosmetic facelift, and more importantly, we’ve added 30 new sound design Presets that explore the sonic limits of what you can do with a ton and a half of rare rock.
Added to that is a new effects page, featuring the full Soniccouture IR Reverb collection, which really sets the stones off beautifully.
The Skiddaw Stones is now available at 30% off the regular price of 59 EUR (excl. VAT) by using coupon code Y7FIMHS8D2 at checkout. The update is free for registered users.
Soniccouture has also announced a new library: Soniccouture Ondes.
A sneak preview of our next release ; it hasn’t been easy, but we’ve had so many requests for this instrument over the years.
We recorded it with Thomas Bloch, the master of such things, in December last year. It’s sounding very good, with a completely unique character.
Here’s some audio to whet your appetites: Ondes Cello on Soundcloud
