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. Soundiron set out to find the essence of classic versus iconoclastic.
They 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. The aim was to make a drum library that is truly electro-organic: authentic and yet electronic 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.
Soundiron 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.
First, they 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 they 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.
The sounds were then piped 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 poly-rhythms.
Also included are over 40 custom FX presets using the power of Kontakt and the custom scripting and user interface controls. These FX presets, which include a range of lead, pad and bass synth sustains, allow you to build entire tracks from the ground-up with Breaker.
