Labor Day Sale event offers 15% off everything including the new Tuned Micro library 03/09/12
Soundiron's Labor Day Sale event offers 15% off everything in their store for Monday and Tuesday and they have announced the release of our the Tuned Micro library, a compact multi-instrument described as a great introduction into Soundiron's wide stringed and tuned percussion catalog, wrapped in an easy-to-use and powerful custom interface. Here's what Soundiron has to say about the new library...
"We hand-selected 20 essential sound sets from a dozen of our popular tuned libraries for this fully playable kit, presenting them with all of the flavor, tone and quality you can expect from our full libraries. Tuned Micro offers an essential taste of our Bamblong, Circlebells, Cylindrum, Imbibaphones, Kalimba, Music Box, The Struck Grand, Toy Glockenspiel, Twine Bass, Waterharp, Whaledrum and Zitherette. These products have been featured in a long list of films, television shows, video games, trailers, commercials, and records around the world.
We've recorded these instruments in a variety of locations, from dry studios to underground bunkers. We used high quality mics in wide pairs to deliver sound with extraordinary life, clarity and presence. While Soundiron libraries are know for their rigorous deep sampling, we've chosen an optimized and simplified sample pool for instrument articulation to include in this starter kit to keep it light. That said, we've carefully programmed each sample and zone for exceptionally organic playability and dynamic responsiveness to allow you to experience a slice of just some of the quality you can expect from our full-sized professional products.
We've also programmed this library with a very unique interface that combines some of our most powerful design features. First, we've provided a single all-inclusive master preset, with a dual-layer mixer that allows any of the 20 individual instrument articulations available in Tuned Micro to be loaded and played instantly on demand. With two independently controllable layers, you can load and play any two articulations simultaneously (such as the Bamblong and Water Harp), with customizable volume, attack, start offset, release gating and pitch-shifting for each layer. Each of the controls can be automated and changed in real-time, allowing truly unique sonic possibilities.
We've also added our Uberpeggiator system, making complex and adaptive arpeggiations easy, whether you play freehand or draw in your velocities and rhythms. It features a number of specialized controls that can be used to craft remarkably intricate musical passages on the fly. We've also integrated a fully sweepable 3-band equalizer with gain, frequency and bandwidth controls.__Lastly, we've added our convolution loading system, which allows you to select and modify 6 of our real-world spaces and 6 of our favorite special FX reverb impulses. Each of these features can be bypassed to save voices and processing power as needed.
Whether you've been curious about our multi-sample instrument libraries and are still on the fence, you're just now learning about us, or you're just looking for a few great new sounds to play around with, Tuned Micro is the perfect low cost and easy way to begin your journey. It contains 285 samples and 248 MB of content, optimized to 156MB after lossless ncw compression. This instrument is designed for the full version of Kontakt 4.2.4 and later. Sorry, the free Kontakt Player doesn't support this library." Pricing and Availability:
