HISS and a ROAR releases Heavy Metal Impacts

HISS and a ROAR has launched Heavy Metal Impacts, a sound fx library featuring 1,900+ high resolution Metal SFX.

Hiss and a Roar Heavy Metal Impacts

We’ve spent the last few months recording metal impacts using props ranging in size from massive empty grain silos & a five ton concrete block through to truck decks, metal rubbish skip bins, an industrial digger scoop & a collection of resonant props.

Captured multi channel using Sennhesier MKH8040 ORTF stereo, MKH8050 and AKG D112 microphones, this library is our heftiest yet, delivering 32GB of 24bit 192khz audio (16GB download) and a huge creative resource for practical & creative sound design.

The library is available for the introductory price of $119 USD until November 1st, 2014 (regular $179 USD).

Beta Monkey releases Double Bass Mania VII & Drum Werks II: Reloaded

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jun 27, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Beta Monkey Music has announced the release of two drum sample libraries.

Beta Monkey Double Bass Mania VII

Double Bass Mania VII features a collection of modern metal drum loops and samples.

Double Bass Mania VII unleashes thick and intense grooves with live feel and modern metal sensibility, delivering essential metal songwriting tools that strike the balance between must-have metal grooves you’ll need, and insane, pushing-the-boundaries drumming that will inspire your playing to new highs.

Brutal metal grooves, with brutal, undeniable heaviness, are only the beginning. Recorded and mixed by one of metal’s leading producers/engineers, Double Bass Mania VII has the modern metal drum sound locked in. Deep and punchy toms, crisp and cutting snares, dark and shimmering cymbals, powerful and controlled kicks – all the separation of drum sounds you need to pull off modern metal are baked in the mix. Drag and drop the loops into the DAW of your choice and you are on your way to writing new metal today. Modern metal drumming attack, power, tone, technique, and feel – it’s all here.

Beta Monkey Drum Werks II Reloaded

Drum Werks II: Reloaded features 600 hard rock drum loops.

Re-released for 2014, Drum Werks II: Reloaded delivers powerful and aggressive hard rock drum loops for today’s modern hard rock mixes. With 100% new drum loop and sample content, this collection serves up only the heaviest grooves for multiple hard rock songwriting styles that demand a modern rock drum sound.

A high-definition and powerful mix is at the heart of the all-new Drum Werks II:Reloaded. We took the pure hard rocking spirit of the original Drum Werks II and gave it a complete sonic and groove update. Simply put, it’s bigger, louder, and heavier. Aggressive and unrelenting powerful hard rock drum tracks are a drag and drop away in the DAW software of your choice, including ProTools, Logic, GarageBand, Cubase, ACID, Ableton Live, Studio One and more.

Both sample libraries are now available for purchase for $39.99 USD each.

Soundiron releases Iron Pack #3 for Kontakt

Soundiron has launched Iron Pack #3, a compact yet full-featured instrument library featuring manipulated metal percussion and melodic instruments.

Soundiron Iron Pack 3

Iron Pack 03 features thirteen creative tuned percussion instruments – both short and sustained, each carefully sculpted from natural recordings we’ve made fro a wide variety of resonant metal objects and surfaces. These highly flexible patches are perfect for all styles of music, from soudtack, to experimental and atmospheric music. The final preset in the set is an awesome metallic “drum kit”, assembled from our huge Rust 3 library. We’ve included all of our favorite user controls in the Kontakt instruments, including the “Edge” knob for extreme shape transformations and the “Wind” convolution reverb selector, with 5 great halls/rooms and 5 creative FX impulses.

You’ll find regular unlocked nki presets for the full version of Kontakt 4.2.4 or later, as well as universal open source SFZ presets, for users who don’t own Kontakt. The SFZ presets can be used in the free Sforzando Player by Plogue, as a VST, AU, RTAS, AAX and stand-alone engine, just like Kontakt. It can also be used in the free Alchemy Player by Camel Audio! The SFZ presets offer many of the same core control features and playability, in a simpler interface, with the same great audio quality.

The Iron Pack is available for purchase for $2.99 USD until until May 15th, 2014. Requires the full version of Kontakt 4.2.4 or later or an SFZ 2.0 compatible engine.
