Soundiron has announced the release of Iron Pack 8, a sample library that explores custom tuned percussion built from tuned water vases, along with a variety of manipulated atmospheres, leads and pads created from the raw acoustic source.

Soundiron Iron Pack 8

Iron Pack 8 is built on a hand-played, tuned chromatically sampled water vase set. It’s a crisp, yet warm tuned percussion instrument, with a slightly round attack and crystalline sustain. In addition to the acoustic preset, there are 11 unique ambient pads, organic “synth” leads and evolving atmospheres, designed by our own Spencer Nunamaker. Each preset includes a variety of sound-shaping controls, time-stretching, reverb & FX impulses and more. Check out Spencer’s video walk-through.

You’ll find regular unlocked nki presets for the full version of Kontakt 4 or 5, as well as open source SFZ presets, for non Kontakt users. The SFZ presets can be used in the free Sforzando Player, the free Alchemy Player by Camel Audio and many other compatible engines.

Iron Pack 8 is available for purchase for $4.99 USD.
