Soundiron has announced the release of Breaker, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Breaker is all about the breakbeat, DIY. This hi-fi/lo-fi old/new school bastard was born to be broken, bruised, smashed, pumped, slammed, smeared, blown-out and beat to hell. We set out to find the essence of classic versus iconoclastic. We set out to build a big, fat and extremely diverse drum palette that evoked an equal blend of warm, smooth 70’s funk and cold, hard 80s electro and pop. Our aim was to make a drum library that is truly electro-organic: electronic in sound but organically playable.

The sound is ripe to be chopped, diced, sliced, flipped, trashed, drilled, derezzed, degraded and granulated. It’s geared toward electro, soul, funk, pop, breakcore, drum n’ bass, garage, dub, techno, glitch, 2-step, trip op, illbient, dub-step, house, and whatever the hell have you. We designed the sound to take digital, tape and tube distortion and FX of all kinds and soak it all right up.
