Welcome to Sick Volume 3: “Dark Places”. This deep sound & music design collection features 175 professional dark/suspense/horror environments, soundscapes, hellscapes and nightmare worlds, with well over 4 GB of premium sample content. Soundiron has hand-crafted horrific demonic creatures, feverish states of sonic delirium, monstrously shambling slavering hordes and discordant fever dreams. They travelled to the edge of a hurricane and wandered the endless halls of decrepit, vermin-infested industrial, military and institutional ruins to capture authentic, production-grade field ambiences that genuinely live and breathe.
Sick three also includes a massive collection of 335 live stereo convolution reverb impulse response files that they've captured in a wide range of remote horror-friendly environments, including bunkers, prisons, waterfronts, graveyards, forests, chambers, warehouses, sewers and more. Soundiron have focused this library of impulses on environments that tend toward the darker and more foreboding, from the vast hopelessness of a derelict prison hall to a terrifyingly claustrophobic earthen grave.
Recorded at a variety of capture distances, angles and degrees of occlusion, they provide realistic coloration and spatialisation when placing additional instruments, sound design and foley into a mix, whether you're working with any of the Sick 3 ambiences or using the impulses to augment other source material in music, film, television, video game or multimedia production. This array of acoustically accurate impulse responses are provided as standard stereo PCM waves that are compatible with any convolution effect, host, virtual instrument or utility that supports wav impulse import.

- Convolutions are also programmed into an innovative "percussion" preset that lets you essentially play the very acoustical essence of each room and environment like a drum.
The library is programmed with a fully-equipped custom user interface that provides real-time automation control over note attack; sample start position offset, intensity swelling, release fade time, tuning and dual sonic layer blending. There is also an integrated EQ, convolution reverb selector and control module and an optional simulated 3-part harmonic polyphonic legato tool that allows you to tie one pitch to the next smoothly. All of the samples are also included as categorised and clearly named stereo wave files that can be imported and used in any wav-format compatible audio environment, sampler, editor, sequencer or other audio software you like.
And just for fun, Soundiron have even programmed the convolution impulses into special “percussion” banks that allow you to actually “play” each location as a drum. This is due to the sharp snapping quality that an impulse response has, with each acoustic environment imparting its own unique qualities into the frequency, phase, reflection and tail as the pulse decays. As a drum, these impulses can actually work remarkably well as unique snare drums, kicks, clicks, snaps and hi-hats if you listen and play with an open mind. In effect, you'll have the ability to play the world around you as a drum almost literally.
