Soundiron has announced the release of Antidrum 2, a major redesign the Antidrum instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Antidrum 2 is a deep collection of unique real-world sounds, objects and instruments in all shapes and sizes (including human-shaped). You’ll find a wide variety of sound sources, including finger snaps, radio transmissions, baritone sax phrases, reverberant junk percussion, boomwhackers, tuned water glasses, farts and other bodily functions, pvc didgeridoos and megahorns, rainstick, metal bars, soda bottles, stopwatch, thunder drum, slinky, trash cans, water bowls, sound designed drum kits, atmospheres and more.
We’ve taken these sources – both common and strange – and subjected them to our full toolbox of UI control features, sound design and sonic manipulation techniques to explore every nuance and turn each one into a fully playable and flexible instrument concept that you can play and use in nearly any track, soundscape, video game and film sound mix.
Antidrum 2 has been redesigned from the ground up with a brand new UI, with deeper control features and a full rack of multi-effects and performance tools, like a dynamic step-sequencable Arpeggiator and convolution reverb with 70 different halls, rooms, spaces and FX. And we’ve also created a new collection of sound-designed ambient pads, leads, atmospheres, crafted from the raw source recordings to provide excellent accompaniment and texture to fatten your mixes. Check out all the demos here!
