The Soundiron High School Drumcorps is a multi-sample drum library focused on capturing the powerful, tight sound of small marching band drum line. There’s a certain unique punch to those hard mid-tones with that truncated dry snap of marching snares and bass drums. It’s quite distinct from the solid, pleasing punch and smooth resonance of typical rock, jazz and symphonic percussion. These drums are meant to be heard loud and clear from a great distance, delivered with the staccato snap of a military formation.
To capture this library, Soundiron returned to its old alma mater to capture the feeling and sound of a small marching drum corps and not from the bleachers, but right in the middle of drum line, all the way from the rehearsal hall to out onto the field on game day.
