Welcome to Sick Volume 3: “Dark Places”.
This deep sound & music design collection features 175 professional dark/suspense/horror environments, soundscapes, hellscapes and nightmare worlds, with well over 4 GB of premium sample content. Soundiron´s hand-crafted horrific demonic creatures, feverish states of sonic delirium, monstrously shambling slavering hordes and discordant fever dreams. Sick 3 also includes a massive collection of 335 live stereo convolution reverb impulse response files that were captured in a wide range of remote horror-friendly environments, including bunkers, prisons, waterfronts, graveyards, forests, chambers, warehouses, sewers and more.
The library is programmed for Native Instruments Kontakt 4.2.4 and later, with a fully-equipped custom user interface that provides real-time automation control over note attack, sample start position offset, intensity swelling, release fade time, tuning and dual sonic layer blending. There is also an integrated EQ, convolution reverb selector and control module and an optional simulated 3-part harmonic polyphonic legato tool that allows you to smoothly tie one pitch to the next. All of the samples are also included as categorized and clearly named stereo wave files that can be imported and used in any wav-format compatible audio environment, sampler, editor, sequencer or other audio software you like.
And just for fun, Soundiron even programmed the convolution impulses into special “percussion” banks that allow you to actually “play” each location as a drum. This is due to the sharp snapping quality that an impulse response has, with each acoustic environment imparting its own unique qualities into the frequency, phase, reflection and tail as the pulse decays. As a drum, these impulses can actually work remarkably well as unique snare drums, kicks, clicks, snaps and hi-hats if you listen and play with an open mind. In effect, you'll have the ability to play the world around you as a drum almost literally.
If you're already familiar with the first two volumes in our classic Sick series, this is where it gets real. This library's sample content is designed to meet the needs and uncompromising standards of professional sound designers, rerecording mixers, film-makers, video game designers and post-production specialists.
