Antidrum 1 is an experimental “found-sound” instrument library that contains 18 unconventional tuned and percussive sound collections, sampled in a variety of real-world locations. It is a celebration of every day objects and sounds and how they can be transformed into strange and compelling new musical instruments.
This library includes uniquely playable instrument banks that range from heavy work boot stomps to resonant water cooler impacts, clicking baby toys, red rubber playground ball bounces, hand-slapped ukulele and guitar shell "drums", shockmount kick thumps, hand clap ensembles, nailgun shots, male ensemble shouts, drum circle strikes and grooves and much, much more. Some instruments are recorded in ensemble, while others are captured solo.
Soundiron built a brand new user interface, with a veritable cornucopia of handy control features and effects, such as dynamic arpegiation and convolution reverb with 70 different halls, rooms, spaces and FX. And we’ve also created a great new selection of sound-designed ambient pads, leads, atmospheres, crafted from the raw source recordings to provide excellent accompaniment and texture to fatten your mixes.

Super empfehlenswert! Qualitativ hochwertige sowie vielseitige Percussion-Sounds und Soundeffekte trocken genug für die Weiterverarbeitung mit eigenen externen Effekten oder mit dem integrierten Appregiatorsystem, was alles inklusive auch gleich mitgeliefert wird (auch Convolution Reverb mit massig an verschiedenen räumlichen Hall-FX). Wenn man seinen Songs oder Soundtracks eine ganz individuelle Note verpassen möchte mit außergewöhnlichen Percussion-Sounds, liegt man hier goldrichtig! Und das für einen relativ schmalen Taler. Klare Kaufempfehlung. Werde mir auch gleich den 3. Teil besorgen, den ich schon länger im Auge habe. Bin bis jetzt begeistert von Soundiron, da die Jungs sehr vielseitige Libraries anbieten, mit denen man viel zaubern kann. Kaufen und Spaß haben.
