Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble

Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble

This massive collection represents the most powerful and comprehensive epic trailer and scoring percussion library we have ever recorded. Featuring over 40 drums and more than a dozen cymbals of all shapes and sizes, with both ensemble and solo articulations and up to 3 independent microphone positions per articulation, this library is your total solution for epic percussion orchestration. Recorded in a naturally rich and lush spacious A-Frame hall using world class large-diaphragm microphones and pristine ultra-quiet recorders, we carefully mixed and mastered each sample to deliver explosive power, unmatched acoustic quality, wide dynamic range, and stunning life-like clarity and presence.

We at Soundiron are no strangers to epic percussion. Those who know our work are familiar with the passion, exacting precision and attention to detail we deliver. The Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble is the culmination of all of our years of experience, distilled into the most comprehensive and earth-shaking hall percussion package available anywhere on the market. We set out to build a monster that punched harder, rumbled deeper, cut through cleaner and could get the job done like no other. We wanted a massive sound like no other, without compromising flexibility and user choice. We aimed for a sound that just works right out of the box, with all of the beef and none of the noise. What we got was above and beyond our wildest expectations. This monster gets it done!

Breaker

Breaker

is all about the breakbeat, DIY-style. This hi-fi/lo-fi old/new school bastard was born to be broken, bruised, smashed, pumped, slammed, smeared, blown-out and beat to hell. We set out to find the essence of classic versus iconoclastic. We set out to build a big, fat and extremely diverse drum palette that evoked an equal blend of warm, smooth 70's funk and cold, hard 80s electro and pop. Our aim was to make a drum library that is truly electro-organic: authentic and yet electronic in sound but organically playable, providing the best of both worlds.

The sound is ripe to be chopped, diced, sliced, flipped, trashed, drilled, derezzed, degraded and granulated. It's geared toward hip hop, electro, soul, funk, pop, breakcore, drum n' bass, garage, dub, techno, glitch, 2-step, trip hop, illbient, dub-step, house, and whatever the hell have you. We designed the sound to take digital, tape and tube distortion and FX of all kinds and soak it all right up. The sound is fat, dirty and raw right out of the boombox, but a twist of a knob or two and you've got a searing, brutally crisp sharp jungle kit ready to go.

We also included over 40 custom FX presets using the power of Kontakt and our custom scripting and user interface controls. These FX presets, which include a range of lead, pad and bass synth sustains, allowing you to build entire tracks from the ground-up with Breaker.

First, we captured a huge collection of over 80 pristine multi-sampled drum kit and auxiliary percussion elements, all bone dry and up close, with 8 velocity layers per note. Then we multitracked and re-sampled them, stacked tightly and a dozen layers deep, to grab a ridiculously tight, rich, aggressive and punchy tone and an ultra-wide, vibrant stereo field. Then we piped them through old analog signal paths, to induce a little crud and mild generation loss, with a generous helping of extra gain, pushing the sound straight over the edge into a fat, saturated, tonal beast. This balance of dynamic/organic versus control and precision allows fully nuanced and articulate grooves and syncopated rapid-fire poly-rhythms.

Breaker is the first library to include a preset that combines two of our popular features: the well-known Uberpeggiator and our newest pride and joy - The Mega-Mixer - to allow custom kit creation and ease-of-use. The UI has been streamlined, with everything you need right at your fingertips, including tempo-synced pitch, amplitude and resonant lowpass filter LFOs with envelope shaping, along with 3-band EQ and Convolution controls right on the front panel.

Clack

Clack

The theme and purpose of this library is pretty simple. We wanted to capture as much sharp, bright, warm, tonal wooden impact percussion as your heart desires. We captured several bamboo poles, bamboo logs, a whole pile of claves, woodblocks, clappers, box drum, and other assorted wooden implements that epitomize the word "thwack." These elements are specifically ideal auxiliary elements for orchestral composition and epic film/tv/game soundtrack scoring. They also are vital elements in Latin music and hip hop, as well as very useful percussion building-blocks and raw source material for experimental music and IDM.

  • 5"x6' bamboo logs (23 articulations)
  • 1"x7' small bamboo poles (6 articulations)/li>

Cymbology 1 Bowed

Cymbology 1 Bowed

This massive percussion effects library is built around classic bowed cymbals, with extensive detours into other experimental sustaining and short dramatic cymbal effects, custom tuned percussion and ambiences. We captured 20 unique cymbals, in all shapes, sizes, alloys and varieties, from crashes and splashes to gongs, bells, trashes and even a stack of spent WWII Howitzer artillery shells. We explore the classic bowed cymbal effect in exquisite detail. There are dozens of variations for each cymbal, from short stabs to long tortured wails and everything in between. These sought-after dramatic scoring and sound design fundamentals are perfect for setting dark moods, striking bold transitions, building stingers, weaving soundscapes and manipulating in any number of ways to evoke sonic images both dark and light. Recorded in close and far mic positions, this library comes equipped with a powerful custom user interface and deep yet intuitive sound-sculpting functionality.

Dhol Drum

Dhol Drum

Contains over 5,100 samples and more than 100 articulations, played with sticks, mallets, brushes, hands, fingers, palms and more, all recorded in extraordinary detail in a close, dry studio setting. We deep sampled two professional Punjabi Dhol Drums for this library, each with distinct characteristics and tuning. These drums have animal hide bass heads (called "dagga") and maylar treble heads (called "thili"). They dagga sides are tuned with a single heavy nylon rope, wound around the drum through steel rings. The thili heads are tuned with a series of steel lugs and rods, typical of most modern percussion.

We like to refer to the thili as "snare" and dagga as "bass", since they sound and function in much the same way snare and bass drums are used in western music. Also, we don't like to do anything in the usual way, because we're a pack of weirdos. The thili sound ranges from that of roto-toms or smaller timables to nasty, abrasive, grainy and thrashing snare-like sounds, depending on the drum size, turning, mallet type, strike position and playing style. The dagga heads range from a bayan-like water drip to a taiko-like boom-crack. We beat the hell out of our Dhol, to push the sound as far as we could take it. For this deeper dry- and close-mic recorded collection, we used a wide variety of sticks, mallets, brushes and hand articulations, as well as unique tunings, to explore the widest possible range of sounds that these instrument were capable of. We recorded every single note with a full 10 round-robin variations and up to 14 velocity layers. The end-result is the deepest sampled Dhol in the history of sampling allowing you to make completely audio-realistic dhol grooves.

We sampled each articulation with up to 14 velocity layers and 10 round robin per note. For the hand articulations, we've also included a set of nearly 40 tabla-like bass bends from slow to fast with 10 round robin each. These bends are a unique contrast to the bends in our traditional Tablas library, producing a much deeper low end.

You'll also enjoy a set of special presets with pre-loaded custom convolution reverb impulses recreating different acoustic spaces. We've divided these patches into three main types, "all master" which includes all articulations, "combo hands" including all hand articulations and "combo mallets" which includes all mallet articulations. For each of these three articulation types we've included five separate patches each with a distinct convolution. These convolutions are "bunker", "garage", "hall", "stairwell" and "valley". This library was originally released by Tonehammer in 2010.

Drum Corps

Drum Corps

The Soundiron Drum Corps is a unique library focused on capturing the powerful, tight sound of high school marching drum corps. Notice the tight, harsh, mid-tones and truncated snap of marching drums. It's quite distinct from the solid, pleasing punch and smooth resonance of typical rock and symphonic percussion. Rather, it's meant to be heard loud and clear from a great distance away.

Deep Sampled Articulations

  • Indoor and Outdoor Recording, Football Field and Band Rehearsal Hall
  • Marching Snare (field): strike, flam, sidestick and rimclick, looping rolls w/ release, 5-6 velocities, 10x round-robin
  • Marching Snare (hall): strike, flam tight, flam loose, rimclick, rimclick flam, looping roll and crescendo w/ release, right & left hands, 8-11 velocities, 10x round-robin
  • 5 Marching Bass Drums (field) Tuned 20" – 36", strike & rimclick, looping & crecendo roll w/ release, hard mallet, 6-8 velocities, 10x round-robin

Grit Kit

Grit Kit

A unique sound designed drum kit library that begins with a simple, efficient acoustic 6-piece drum kit. It's your all-around basic stereo jazz set, with kick, 14" snare, 10" snare, floor tom, mid and high toms, hi-hats, ride-crash, large and small splashes. This fully playable and functional drum kit offers a warm sound, with 12 round-robin variations per layer and fully responsive dynamic layering. Built into an easy to use preset with tons of built-in FX options, this by itself can serve as a great "plug and play" drum kit instrument for just about any style of music.

But that's just where we get started. From that raw essence, we've used all manner of strange and mysterious sound design tricks, hacks and evil science to build a killer collection of 15 complete special FX drum kits, exploring decayed, demolished, destroyed and generally degenerated percussion sounds. We take you from lo-fi retro-lounge combos, to brutally overblown and shredded death kits, to crisply stuttering glitch kits and beyond.

Little Epic Percussion 1

Little Epic Percussion 1

Welcome to Small Epic Percussion. A great collection of small orchestral and ethnic percussion instruments intended both to compliment our existing collection of epic drums. It also stands alone as a unique toolbox of under-appreciated but often called-for items, like the tambourine and finger cymbals. We not only went out of our way to capture these instruments as deeply as we could muster, but tried as much as possible to discover new ways of thinking about and playing them. You may notice some unorthodox articulations included with some of the instruments, as well as a few strange combinations and mutations.

Deep Sampled Articulations

  • Solo and ensemble claves, vibraslap, sticks, rattles, various shakers, metal rattles and bells
  • Large Tambourine
  • Finger Cymbals

Riq

Riq

The traditional family of Middle Eastern (Arabic) hand percussion instruments is generally defined as an open shell frame drum with large cymbals or jingles – aka Riq Drums. It is similar in appearance and origin to a tambourine, but this broad family of specialized drums is treated as a very serious and deeply nuanced instrument class in both traditional and modern Middle Eastern, Central Asian and Eastern European music. Rather than simply being an accompaniment or backing instrument, the Rik family of drums can often take a lead or solo role. The jingles, rattles or rings are often played as a discreet component of the drum, along with a broad range of unique head and rim finger and hand articulations.

Deep Sampled Articulations

  • Riq bone mallet strikes (center, edge) 6-8 velocity layers, 10X variations per layer

Shake Vol. 1

Shake Vol. 1

This deep sampled collection is dedicated to shakers, rattles and bell tree percussion. The fuzzy, buzzy, sandy-sounding "chuff", "shuck" and "jingle" of hand-held shakers and bells is an essential part of orchestral, latin, electronic, hip hop and even rock music.

Tablas

Tablas

Welcome to Soundiron's Complete Tabla library, the most comprehensively sampled Tabla in the history of sampling. This library contains both looped phrases as well as deeply multi-sampled tablas. The tabla is a popular Indian percussion instrument used in the classical, popular and devotional music of the Indian subcontinent and in Hindustani classical music. The instrument consists of a pair of hand drums of contrasting sizes and timbres. To call tabla a mere percussion instrument would be a vast understatement of its musical depth, as one of the most revered of all classical Indian musical instruments. We worked with tabla master and jazz percussionist Sameer Gupta to capture a range of tabla rhythm, melody and soul. Sameer has been a student and practitioner in the art of percussion for nearly 25 years, traveling the world to study and perform in some of the world’s most prestigious institutions and venues.

Deep Sampled Articulations

  • 14 unique tabla articulations
  • 20 unique bayan articulations and bend variation types
  • 10 unique tabla-bayan combo articulations
