First Look: Cylindrum by Soundiron

Cylindrum is a Kontakt instrument that downloads as 1 GB. For the library, Soundiron‘s  Gregg Stephens created the sample set by crafting a custom-made physical instrument from 40 feet of meticulously measured pipes and tubing. You will know this is no small mathematical feet if you have ever tried to tune water glasses!

Cylindrum comes with 20+ nki presets ranging from Tonal Percussive (wet and dry), ambiances and includes a sub synth layer for added low end.

This is the third version of the Cylindrum instrument from Soundiron so it has hard to use the word “new” as I went about checking out the library.

But what really sets this instrument part is the “old” sample set. In a world were developers are eager to sculpt and manipulate sounds inside the box with the latest plugins, Soundiron created a new sample set by crafting a custom instrument from 40 feet of meticulously measured pipes and tubing. The end result was a massive 20-foot-long tuned percussion instrument with a full 4-octave range.

The library comes with LFO, Filters Arpeggiator & FX Panel

One big takeaway from checking out the library is just how intuitive the interface is. Unlike most Kontakt libraries where clicking through panels is the norm, the Soundiron team instead find a simple yet elegant way for users to interact with a cleanly designed interface.

This all makes for a smooth sound design workflow and allows users to take the sample set out in an entirely new direction.

The additional “FX” presets show off just how useful the FX Rack can be when put to good use.
