Soundiron has announced the release of Ambius 2: Systematik, a 4.9GB beast of an organic synth collection built on adaptive groove-building and inspiring tone and texture shaping features.
The foundation of Ambius 2 is Soundiron’s Instrument Designer system, which allows you to combine a range of tuned percussive attack samples with a broad variety of richly detailed sustaining pads and leads.
Ambius 2: Systematik represents a huge new step forward in our quest to build a truly flexible and adaptive sample based atmospheric synth.
We wanted a broad collection of richly nuanced flavors with the ability to freely layer, blend and reshape a wide mix of percussive, tonal and textural elements into custom multi-layered dynamic and evolving instruments. We wanted a unified and powerful interface to combine detailed performance and tone shaping controls with a wide pallet of experimental and environmental convolution effects. We wanted a built-in tempo-locking step-sequenced filter and LFO engine that could be adapted to just about any other GUI control parameter on the fly without missing a beat. Ambius 2 is all of that and much more.
To celebrate the release of Ambius 2 Systematik, Soundiron is offering a $30 discount on the price and offering some amazing deals on Apocalypse Percussion, Cymbology, The Struck Grand and our Montclarion Hall Steinway until December 21st, 2012.
Soundiron has announced the release of a major update for Rust 2, a metallic percussion sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Soundiron’s Rust 2 now features the Mega Mixer master preset.
For the brand new Rust 2 version 2.0 we went through all the previous presets with the due diligence of a true obsessive-compulsive. We tweaked key-mapping, zone mapping, fading and balance to really improve on the previous incarnation of this library in every way. We’ve designed a completely customized and automatable user interface that visually responds to your performance. Now each preset offers realtime control over every aspect of the sound, allowing you to shape note Attack and sample Offset to create gentle, ghostly pad-like sounds from even the harshest impacts. The Release control let’s you tighten the sound into a sharp staccato click or ping in one moment, or a long ringing sustain the next. Tuning is easy, with the Stepping and main Tune parameters. All of our most recent technological advances are included. Our powerful Uberpeggiator allows complex, adaptive arpeggiations and you’ll ﬁnd tempo-syncing resonant ﬁlter and volume LFOs build into nearly every preset. We’ve also included a parametric EQ and convolution reverb with over 50 room and FX impulses to choose from instantly.
We’ve also included our mighty Mega Mixer master preset, which lets you choose from any of the percussive elements in the library, load 10 of them dynamically, each with custom key-range, tuning and mapping to create your own ensembles, drum kits and tuned percussion orchestras. Finally, the Tuned Selector Ensemble presets give you instant access to sub-categorized collections of solo tuned percussion elements, with easy browsing and automatable instrument selection, while the standard ensemble presets lay it all out for you in convenient untuned drum-kits.
Rust 2 is available to purchase for $59 USD through December 12th, 2012 (regular $69 USD). The update is free for current owners of Rust 2.
In celebration of the updated, Soundiron has also launched a limited time sale for the Metal Collection, offering the bundle of Rust 1-3, Iron Throne, Tuned Artillery and Bronze Bin at a 35% discount.
Weighing in at nearly 12 GB of content, Metal Collection features over 300 flexible and intuitive Kontakt presets and over 12,000 samples.
For many of the presets, dozens of custom convolutions are integrated into the GUI and there is a range of automatable EQ, Reverb and sound-shaping to expand on the creative possibilities the libraries offer.
Metal Collection is on sale now for $149 USD through December 12th, 2012.
Soundiron has announced that its Tuned Micro and Granny Piano sample libraries are now available in Reason ReFill format.
We’re happy to finally announce the arrival of our first two ReFill Packs for Reason!
We’ve worked with Propellerhead to carefully optimize and redesign our classic Old Busted Granny Piano and Tuned Micro libraries specifically for the Reason 6 platform, with Combinator and NN-XT presets that truly capture the playability and advanced control functionality that people have come to love with these popular instruments.
While ReFills and Kontakt presets have very different capabilities and strengths overall, you’ll find many of the same familiar UI features, a variety of matching presets, stylized artwork and the same great sound. And don’t worry, we’ll be adding new offerings to our Reason catalog as time goes on to expand the selection for our Reason users. And existing customers of the Kontakt versions of these libraries are eligible to receive low cost cross-grades to the Reason version.
The Tuned Micro and Granny Piano ReFills are available to purchase for $29 USD and $49 USD respectively.
