AudioThing has announced the release of Environments – Piscina Mirabilis, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Environments Piscina Mirabilis features sound gestures from a handmade electroacoustic feedback setup and the impulse response (three different types) of “Piscina Mirabilis”, a roman water cistern located in Bacoli, in the northwest of Gulf of Naples (Italy). The cistern, made in Augusts era, is the largest Roman cistern for drinking water ever built.
The sampled instruments features feedback, strings, efx, and percussive sounds.
The setup consist of a handmade electroacoustic feedback system made of a several recycled objects such as a steel coffee can, plastic pipes, and modified springs used along with speakers and microphones. The result is an ensemble of resonators and reverberators in a unique environment.
Environments – Piscina Mirabilis features
- 42 Kontakt Instruments (.nki).
- Up to 5 Round Robin samples.
- 161 Samples (44.1kHz / 32-bit).
- 3 Reverb Impulse Responses.
- Size: 225 MB.
- Formats: Kontakt and WAV.
- Sample sets including: nylon strings, steel strings, feedbacks, custom made instruments.
The library is available for the introductory price of 11.90 EUR until November 1st, 2014 (regular 14 EUR). Requires Kontakt 4.2.4+ full version.

iMusicAlbum has announced the release of AltiSpace, a convolution reverb for iPad and iPhone.
The realistic sound of famous reverb equipment for your iPad and iPhone! Includes a large built-in library of the highest quality reverb impulses taken from actual devices and the possibility to upload your own reverb space impulses. Intuitive and compact user interface for maximum ease and efficiency.
What is the convolution reverb?
Briefly, convolution reverb is based on a process that digitally ‘captures’ the reverb characteristics of another reverb effects unit or the reverb response of a real acoustic space. It is based on the mathematical convolution operation, and uses a pre-recorded audio sample of the impulse response of the device or space being modeled. The process of convolution multiplies each sample of the audio to be processed (reverberated) with the samples in the impulse response file.
- High-quality, fast convolution algorithm.
- Parametric equaliser with high and low pass filters.
- Impulse response envelope editor with “reverse” function.
- Amplitude and frequence modulator.
- Stereo width control.
- Built-in library that contains more than 200 impulse responses from famous analogue and digital reverbs.
- Upload additional impulse responses in different audio formats.
- Preset hotkeys, possibility to save current sample and its params.
The app is available for purchase for $5.99 USD.

Diego Stocco has introduced FFS // Convoluted Anode Bonus, a free collection of impulse responses based on sounds made with the MeeBlip Anode, a synthesizer by James Grahame and Peter Kirn.
“FFS // Convoluted Anode Bonus” is a mini set of 15 Impulse Responses specifically designed for the processing of beats and percussive instruments. You can download it for free or “pay what you want”.
I created them for the rhythmic convolution processing you can hear in my track “Convoluted Anode”: https://soundcloud.com/diegostocco/convoluted-anode-diego-stocco
If you’re interested in this processing technique, check out “FFS // Rhythmic Convolutions“, a set of 200 impulse responses made from organic sources and materials.

Time+Space has announced the release of Extreme Environments, a soundscape creator instrument library by Zero-G and Si Begg.
Zero-G Extreme Environments combines a state-of-the-art Kontakt user interface with loops and impulse responses to produce a highly flexible tool for creating very rich, detailed and hyper-real sounds – from beds and drones to actual pads and instruments you can play.
Produced by Si Begg, the sound design supremo behind other Zero-G titles including Distorted Dancefloors and Electro Glitch Essentials, Extreme Environments features three channels where you can select any one of the 142 loops.
For each channel you can then control the pitch, time stretch, amplitude & filter envelopes, saturation and reverb send. All three channels are then mixed together and put through master high pass and low pass filters, then finally a limiter.
The other key part of the instrument is the convolution reverb, which any of the three channels can be sent to. You can choose any one of the 86 bespoke impulse responses, ranging from straightforward to extreme sound design. This adds great depth and atmospheric detail beyond the standard reverbs you might usually come across. The combination of all these features makes for an almost limitless palette of sound creation.
Extreme Environments features
- Kontakt Instrument with custom GUI and over 150 presets (requires Kontakt version 5.3.0 or later).
- Audio loops – available as AIFF Apple Loops or Acidized wav files.
- Impulse responses for use with any convolution reverb.
- Logic EXS24 Instruments and Reason NN-XT Instruments.
- Space Designer Presets.
- Logic Channel Strip Settings.
Extreme Environments is available for purchase for RRP £59.95 GBP / 74.95 EUR.
