Review Antidrum 2 from Soundiron

Antidrum 2 sells for $49.00 (USD) from Soundiron

Thoughts

I own enough libraries from Soundiron to know that when I crack open a new one I am in for a treat. Antidrum 2 did not disappoint. With a diverse selection of sampled content I was delighted at every turn loading up each kontakt instrument is an adventure of anticipation to see what sonic joy would come out of my monitors.

From Finger snaps to farts (yep), Air Traffic control radio transmissions to multiple PVC sample sets, Watch noises to soda bottle hits this is a grad bag of sonic curiosities.

Yep . . . Air Traffic Control samples in an instrument for kontakt

For the price point at $49 this is a great buy in my opinion if you’re a composer for picture looking to expand your sonic pallet in a unique and quirky way to help you evolve compositions to create new worlds. I can also see how the Antidrum series can inspire music makers with it original edge that is sure to add new dimensions to a composition. The Soundiron ARP (arpeggiator) only expands the inspirational value the library holds.

As you can see I was inspired and continue to be a big fan of all things Soundiron big and small, so be sure check out the demos and videos (below) to learn more about the instrument and see if it’s a good fit for your music creation needs.
