Soundiron has launched Fountain Wires, an experimental tuned percussion library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Fountain Wires captures the sound of thick braided steel strings under high tension strung between steel beams in a concrete and water feature surrounded environment.
This 853 MB library includes the original plucked articulations as they sounded up close and direct, as well as manipulated articulations that provide punchy lead instruments, distorted guitar-like tones, undulating soundscapes, complex organ and e-piano-like elements, thumping bass notes and a wide variety of other very musical and deeply useful creative content.
All of it is wrapped up in a customizable performance control system, with lots of soundshaping tools, arpeggiation sequencing and flexible DSP effects. This library is perfect for chillwave, new wave, EDM, glitch, post rock, soundtrack, downtempo, dub, ambient music, general sound design and any situation that calls for conceptually familiar and yet slightly off-kilter sonic source material.
The library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $15 USD until November 22nd, 2013 (regular $20 USD).
