Plugin Boutique has launched an exclusive sale on the Little Pump Reeds collection of sampled hand-held air-driven reed-based instruments for Kontakt by Soundiron.

This library ranges from fine quality hand-crafted traditional Indian Shruti Boxes, to a mini accordion and what Soundiron refer to as the Plastisax (something vaguely like a child’s plastic soprano saxophone, but sounding more like a harmonica). This library also includes a lovely 14-note concertina of which Soundiron sampled 3 dynamic layers and multiple articulations. Soundiron also implemented a powerful user interface that allows quick access to all of the instruments in a single preset. As always, Soundiron have sampled each instrument lovingly and thoroughly, with attention to playability and musicality.

Obviously, Soundiron took these instruments much farther than they were ever designed to go. These sample sets are surprisingly rich, full and playable in a way that one would normally only be able to expect from top-notch, full-range instruments. In the end, Soundiron just decided it was high time somebody give these little misfit toys the respect and attention to detail that they truly deserve.
