Soundiron Didgeridoos is a one-of-a-kind virtual instrument that provides a wide chromatic range of 16 individually tuned didgeridoos that gives users the power to create rhythms and melodies that have never been heard or played before with this instrument, created by William MacGavin and David Zagardo. It features a wide variety of sustaining rhythmic grooves, vowel sounds and beatbox-style staccatos and effect articulations.
The didgeridoo is an ancient wooden horn originally made and played by the Aboriginal Peoples of Australia, and is an instrument traditionally used for ceremonies and festivities. This virtual instrument was crafted with great respect for the Aboriginal Peoples of Australia, their culture, and their values. It is not intended to be used in a traditional context and has been designed to provide creative tools and new sonic possibilities for composers and musicians everywhere to explore. It is not intended to represent or replace the authentic realism, cultural importance and soul of traditional aboriginal musicianship and spiritual traditions.

Will Macgavin has been playing the didgeridoo for the past 15 years as a soloist and with bands playing genres such as rock, jazz, bluegrass, orchestral music, and much more.
