    ANGKLUNG

    The Angklung is a full-ranged traditional Indonesian tuned percussion instrument dating back to roughly the 7th Century AD. It is used widely throughout Southeast Asia and Polynesia in a variety of traditional and modern music, from gamelan orchestras to pop. Each angklung note is made of a pair of bamboo rattles in octave pairs. The result is a uniquely full, clear note.

    For this massive multi-sample library, Soundiron recorded a set of 18 Angklung notes, tuned over a major scale spanning nearly 3 full octaves. They captured them close in a dry studio and in a large wet hall with 3 mic positions (close, mid, far). Each dry note was recorded with 48 round-robin variations per-velocity and 16 round-robin variations per-velocity for each hall note (x3 mic positions).

    Soundiron also recorded natural sustaining loops at different intensities, with smooth dynamic cross-fading and adjustable release. It also includes a set of ambient soundscapes crafted from the raw source recordings that complement the sound of the instrument.

    BAMBLONG

    Welcome to our Bamblong (tuned bamboo log drum). The Bamblong is a small idiophone similar to a marimba, meticulously hand-crafted from sections of cut and carved bamboo from Southest Asia. The instrument is a chromatic scale of tuned bamboo logs with sound holes cut into the top of each one. It is played by striking a thin bamboo plank suspended over each log using a rubber mallet. Our Bamblong has a smooth and mellow, yet crisp musical note, with quick decay. It’s rooted at F3, but we provide a fully extended key range to allow deep bass notes and tight high notes.

    We recorded in a close, intimate dry setting with mics just above the the logs to capture the full warmth and tonality of each note. We sampled it exhaustively, with an average of 20 dynamic velocity layers per note and 10 round-robin variations per dynamic layer. We also recorded strikes and rolls using nylon jazz brushes for a raspy percussive effect. As an added option, we also recorded the instrument in a recording hall for a bright, organic live sound that can be ideal for use in symphonic arrangements and blending with other concert percussion.

    BAMBOO STICK ENSEMBLE

    Bamboo — when most people look at it, they just see a plant. Others wonder at the decorative possibilities it might serve: complete a landscape design or balancing the feng shui of a room. If you are a panda, bamboo looks like dinner. For the truly eccentric, bamboo presents a multitude of sonorous possibilities and challenges. That’s Soundiron. Our Bamboo Stick Ensemble (featured in movies like Avatar and Tron) is a powerful display of just how far you can take a simple musical ingredient like bamboo poles. By themselves, they provide a powerful clack when smashed together. But when (mis)treated just the right way, they also generate outstanding percussive effects and tonal sustains.

    Soundiron took the finest 6'-8' x 2" bamboo poles they could find and beat each other senseless with them. After that was out of the way, they carefully sampled them in their natural state, as mighty epic percussion instruments. When striking and scraping a stone floor with them, the result is an interesting blend of aggressive slaps, clacks, screeches, drones and even howls. Soundiron recorded this library in one of their favourite lush tile and stone recording halls, with the specific goal of achieving the most massive and powerful epic percussion hall sound they could get. True epic percussion can only be done in a natural hall. It can’t be faked.

    For version 2.0, Soundiron painstakingly combed over all the instruments, improving key mapping, velocity layering and responsiveness, making the whole thing more playable, organic, flexible and musical. They also added a full set of brand new performance, effect and arpeggiator controls to make the whole experience that much better.
