This year's entry into Soundiron's annual Sick series delves into the sound of macabre body mutilation and tardigrade torture. It painstakingly explores 35 unique deep sampled (12x RR) percussion articulations as well as over 1,000 horror sound effects. Weighing in at over 2 GB of premium sound design content, Sick 4 is ideal for both music and sound production: designed with horror in mind yet flexible and diverse enough to fit into any mix that calls for something a little off the beaten path.
To build this library, Soundiron gathered an army of pumpkins in all shapes and sizes and set about destroying them in a most brutal manner, with the help of hammers, crowbars, saws, drills, wrenches and our own meaty fists and heavy boots. They also pried a range of proto-musical elements from steel pails, swinging chains, dragging cinderblocks.
The goal was to craft a well-rounded and highly detailed horror foley collection suitable for the most discerning sound designer or scoring composer. But going beyond simple sound effects creation, Soundiron also brought out drum sticks, fingers and mallets to create the most nuanced and playable pumpkin percussion library ever conceived. Finally, over 50 custom horror ambiences and soundscapes were also included created from the source material and cutting edge control features, rack FX and otherworldy convolutions to complete the picture.
This library's sample content is designed to meet the needs and uncompromising standards of professional sound designers, rerecording mixers, film-makers, video game designers and post-production specialists. Every details has been expertly programmed and tailored to fit seamlessly into your creative workflow. Sick 4 is perfect for adventurous composers and songwriters or anyone seeking fresh meat to feed their darker sonic urges.
The library is programmed for Native Instruments Kontakt 5.1 and later and comes fully-equipped with a 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. Each sound layer is fully independent and has its own control set so users can pitch, pan, swell and attenuate each one separately.
Sick 4 also features Soundiron's powerful integrated Uberpeggiator arpeggiation system which allows to total customization and full preset saving and loading. Soundiron's full FX Rack which has an integrated EQ, convolution reverb selector, compressor, distortion, delay and much more is also included. All of the samples are categorized 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.
