Soundiron releases Street Bukit for Kontakt + 4th of July Sale

Soundiron Street Bukit

Soundiron has launched Street Bukit, a Kontakt sample library featuring collection of 5 different buckets and 5 different pots and pans recorded in three ubiquitous urban environments: city street corner, open garage and a small apartment bedroom.

The Street Bukit is a deep collection of classic DIY (“Do-It-Yourself”) drumkit sounds that are found in improvised urban street performers’ drum kits.

Common to cities around the world, you’ll often find street drummers playing an ecclectic variety of large and small plastic buckets, pots, pans and other scrap and found objects arranged into a rough sort of drum kit. They play with marching or rock drum sticks, jazz brushes, mallets and hands, with specialized technique for producing kick drum sounds – they left the edge of a large bucket with the side of their feet and them stomp or drop it back down in different ways to produce unique lo-fi “bass drum” sounds. As raw a concept as this might seem, skilled street bucket drummers can be profoundly virtuosic, with complex, highly nuanced rhythms, grooves and cadences ranging from drum corps to break-beat to drum n’ bass to industrial and tribal.

Street Bukit features

  • 4,105 samples.
  • 2.40 GB Installed.
  • 22 nki Kontakt instrument presets (11 K4 / 11 K5).
  • 24 bit / 48kHz stereo PCM wav format.
  • Open format to allow user customization.

The Street Bukit library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $47 USD until July 12th, 2013 (regular $59 USD).

Soundiron has also announced its 4th of July Sale, offering a 20%–40% storewide discount until July 12th, 2013.

Soundiron Voice of Rapture The Soprano

Soundiron has announced the release of Voice of Rapture: The Soprano, a solo vocal sample library for classical operatic voice.

Voice of Rapture: The Soprano represents a new benchmark in solo vocal sampling for classical operatic voices. As the first in our Voice Of Rapture SATB series, this powerful 3.5 GB collection of fully playable chromatic content and emotionally charged melodic phrases gives you more creative freedom, expressive power and work-flow flexibility than any other solo vocal library in the world.

We recorded in a close, totally dry studio environment with exceptional microphones and preamps to capture every subtle nuance. We then carefully prepared and edited each sample and hand-programmed each element into an unrivaled performance interface that delivers both efficiency and control. We’ve also included our comprehensive FX Rack panel, with multi-effects, compression, EQ, amp/speaker simulation and convolution reverb, featuring dozens of our most popular custom recorded rooms, halls, cathedrals and otherworldly fx impulses easily available right through the interface. The Soprano brings together superior programming, performance, quality and living, breathing soul into an unprecedented solo vocal solution that you will not find matched anywhere else!

The Kontakt sample library is available for the introductory price of $119 USD through June 20th, 2013 (regular $139 USD).

Soundiron launches Olympus Mike-Ro Solo sample library

Soundiron has announced Olympus Mike-Ro Solo, a vocal sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Soundiron Olympus Mike-Ro Solo
Soundiron’s Olympus Mike-Ro Solo, an “ultra-premium virtuoso tenor solo vocal library” for NI Kontakt.

Actually, this is just a fun, yet totally functional micropack that shows a little of what goes on behind the scenes at Soundiron as we research new production and sampling methods. When you’re dragging a full choir into a hall to record, it’s generally a good idea to have an idea of what you want them to do before you roll tape. Soundiron’s official in-house trained monkey (Mike Peaslee) likes to fancy himself a singer, usually somewhere in the tenor range. Since he was sadly born without a sense of shame or decorum, he’s literally willing to do anything on command if somebody’s recording. So we tend to use him as a human guinea pig quite a bit.

What you’ll find here is a collection of 5 poly-sustain chants, with Latin and Slavonic Russian content, along with common vowel sustains (Ah, Eh, Oh, Oo) that we recorded during the production of our Olympus Symphonic Choir. These tests helped to inform our approach to editing, recording and programming for solo voice in a hall environment.

We’ve included a pair of improvised long Latin phrases based at 130 bpm and three common multi-syllabic Slavonic words taken from the Angelic Salutation, each recorded at 100 bpm. We include standard vowel sustains Ah, Eh, Oh and Oo. This mighty little solo tenor vocal library includes nearly 100 vocal samples and 180 MB of data. It also contains a couple of sweet-ass ambient and atmospheric bonus presets and radical special FX and room convolution impulses built right into the interface. Check out the solo demos by Sascha Knorr and Freewayland to hear some of that illbient vibe for yourself. It’s pretty sick. It also works great with Olympus Micro and any of our professional full-sized symphonic choir libraries.

The sample library is available to purchase for $4.99 USD.

Soundiron releases Electric & Acoustic Saz for Kontakt

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Mar 27, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Soundiron has announced the release of the Electric & Acoustic Saz libraries, the first truly playable virtual Turkish Guitars designed for professional composers and exotic stringed instrument junkies.

Soundiron Electric Saz
These unique 5-stringed fretless hollow-body instruments from the streets of Turkey sound strikingly like guitars in certain ways, but with a very unique flavor and range of capabilities.

This pair of multi-sample libraries capture the total essence of both the Acoustic and Electric saz baglâma, with a full range of sustained plucks, palm mutes and chokes, true legato slide and release behavior, hand-slaps and more, with deep round-robin sampling per articulation on each string.

Our intuitive strum, arpeggiation, gliss, legato and performance controls allow exquisitely life-like fingering and emotive real-time articulation, whether you’re in the mood for intricate leads or just banging out strummed grooves and chord accompaniment in a single unified UI.

You’ll experience full control over each string, including key range, string selection, hammer-ons, pull-offs, legato and pluck type, all with key-switch support. Our unrivaled live strumming and chord generation tools can handle any style of lead or rhythm playing you throw at it. Each control can be fully automated by midi and we’ve designed several preset types to accommodate a variety of personal work-flows and preferences.

To put it simply, these libraries not only represent the most powerful ethnic stringed instrument libraries of their kind in the world – they deliver an unprecedented breakthrough in string instrument control solutions, flexibility and pure sound quality.

The sample libraries are available to purchase for the introductory price of $129 USD each through April 4th, 2013 (regular $149 USD). A bundle of both has an intro price of $199 USD (regular $229 USD).
