Soundiron Iron Throne for Kontakt is a little beast which is very, very eerie and dark. This collection of metallic percussive and semimelodic effects, is ideal for use in horror and suspense scoring, sound design, trailer effects and post production, experimental and ambient music, or anything else you can think to do with it.
The origins of the strange creation/discovery will remain a forbidden secret – even though they had a contest where over 130 people tried to guess its origins. What Soundiron can tell you is that they beat and played the hell out of it… or in to it, depending on how you look at it. Soundiron used bows, mallets, metal rods, rubber balls, fingers, fists, drum sticks, nylon, metal brushes, rasps and files, water and earth to lift all manner of demon song from this contraption.
Soundiron used viola bows on the throne edges to create eerie melodic and dissonant tones. Several types of bowed instrument sets are included, including long sustains, medium gliss effects, short staccato, spiccato, and tremolo sustains.
There are a number of different mallet rubs, brush, finger, and comb effects to explore. The finger drags, rubber ball, and flat mallet rubs were created by dragging the edge of the mallets (or fingers) along surfaces on the throne, in long arcs and lines. This caused it to resonate in a similar fashion to a rubbed gong.
Mallet strikes were produced with wooden, felt, and metal tipped mallets and sticks to produce standard metal percussion sets.
For Iron Throne 2.0, Soundiron created brand new ambiences, drones and atmospheric pads from the raw source recordings. This library also contains 20 new custom FX presets to give you instant inspiration for your next film/video game score, soundtrack or music composition.
