These finely crafted sounds range from super precise percussion hits to rich and intricate ambient textures and are sure to provide many hours of exploration in evocative soundscapes.

The Abstractions sound bank will be available in the first quarter of 2014 for $39 USD. The instant download delivery package will include both an Ultra Analog VA-2 bank file as well as the free AAS Player plug-in for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX).

Soundiron has announced the release of Phonautograms v2.0, an upgraded and expanded collection of atmospheric instruments for Native Instruments Kontakt.
This historic instrument is drawn from some of mankind’s earliest known sound recordings, drawn from archival source carefully restored by First Sounds. Based on inventor Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville’s 1860 “Gamme de la Voix” vocal scale recording, this collection features playable vintage chromatic sustains, as well as newly crafted modern sound-designed creative ambient and electro-percussive content.
For the new version we’ve expanded the sample content by tenfold and added a custom Kontakt user interface that features automatable dynamic volume swelling, note attack, note release, sample start offset and pitch transposition. We also added nearly 200 MB of new ambient material crafted from the source in the form of 31 synths, evolving soundscapes and dark atmospheres. We also created a variety of newly resynthesized percussive hits and FX from the source, building a unique kit with 41 electro kicks, snares, hats, toms and fx. Our custom DSP effects rack is also featured for Kontakt, featuring customizable distortion, EQ, filter, delay and much more. The convolution reverb effect contains 70 custom-recorded environmental and FX impulse responses.
The library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $5 USD until December 25th, 2013 (regular $10 USD). During this sale, a free copy of the special edition Sleighbells multisample library (283 MB) is included with a purchase of Phonautograms.
