Soundiron releases Chroma Bells for Kontakt
Soundiron has released Chroma Bells. This hand bell library is available at an intro price of $15 (regular price $29) for a limited time. The full version of Kontakt 6.2.2 or later is required. More details from Soundiron below.
Chroma Bells is a collection of 12 tuned steel, brass and bronze hand bells from England, India, China and Tibet. Each one has a distinct brightly or darkly resonant character, providing an awesome variety to fit any arrangement. They’re great for creating full melodic compositions, accenting percussive arrangements or even as pure sound effects.
We recorded single-note rings, sustaining rolls and special muted articulations, each captured with extensive velocity-layering and round robin variations for exceptionally dynamic natural playability and beautiful acoustic realism. There are three stereo microphone positions that you can freely mix and layer. You’ll find our classic ultra-close pair of large-diaphragm studio mics for dry, crisp and strongly present tonality. There’s also a wide-spaced overhead pair of pencil omnis for a spacious room sound. Lastly, just for fun, we’ve used a pair of very rustic tin can microphones that offer a raw, yet somehow smooth mid-century vintage lofi flavor with a warm mid-range, dark tone and rounded transients.
