Soundiron has announced the release of Temple Drums, a dynamic hall percussion instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Soundiron Temple Drums

Temple Drums is a multi-sampled hall percussion library recorded in a secret stone-walled underground chamber. We recorded a variety of solo drum and bell articulations from a close, wide mic position to capture a crisp, tight, bright and lush sound. The library includes bass drum, large floor tom, rack toms, bongos, snare drums, djembe, doumbeks, frame drum/bodhran, large Tibetan hand cymbals, Tibetan copper bell and 36” flat gong. The space has a crisp, bright and lush vibe and we recorded each instrument up close for maximum clarity and presence, with a wide stereo image.

Sourced from a variety of regional and ethnic origins, these drums and bells give you a broad selection of tones to work with a wide range of musical styles. In addition to drums hits, rim clacks, and tuned percussion, you’ll find several categories of live single-shot drum fills and rolls. It also includes an excellent variety of deep, ominous and sacred sound designed atmospheres, ambiences, sustaining pads and drones to evoke the spirits of the your own underworld.

The library is programmed for the full version of Kontakt 5.5 and later (OSX 10.8 or later / Windows 7 or later required). It comes equipped with a custom user interface, dynamic shaping and mixing controls: attack, edge, release, filter resonance and cut, bank loading (with key-switching), arpeggiation and built-in convolution reverb with your choice of 30 different rooms, halls, spaces and special FX impulses.
