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.

unEarthed Sampling intros Tension Hits 2

unEarthed Sampling Tension Hits 2

unEarthed Sampling has released Tension Hits 2, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Where STH focuses on soft tension filled hits from unlikely sources, TH2 focuses more on in your face loud and epic impacts. All of these impacts come from unconventional sources such as chairs, tubes, stage hits, doors, sticks, metal shelves, and candelabras. unEarthed Sampling even recorded ensemble stomps on the stage which sound “HUGE and epic”. There are no loops or phrases here, these are all multisampled recordings meticulously recorded via a matched pair mic set.

All of the samples were recorded in a large old hall built in the late 1800s. The hall is featured in the GUI art by Glyn Lloyd. All of the patches (save for one of the two stomps patches) feature 4 X RR.

The GUI features some easily tweakable controls to really change the sound of each of the patches. These tweaks include Attack, Release, Lo, Mid, and Hi gain knobs, and the indispensable pitch knob. The toggleable covolution reverb makes these sound huge and they even included 13 easily selectable impulse responses.

The library is available for purchase for $25 USD.
