Postby freewayland; Wed Oct 31, 2012 12:43 pm Soundiron releases Sick 3: Dark Places atmospheric horror and suspense library

Sick 3: Dark Places is a deep sound & music design collection with 175 long running, highly-detailed professional dark/suspense/horror environments, soundscapes, hellscapes and nightmare worlds. Soundiron's team literally traveled to the edge of a hurricane and wandered the halls of decrepit, vermin infested industrial, military and institutional ruins to capture authentic, production grade field ambiences that truly live and breathe. If you're familiar with our Sick horror effects series, this one takes it to an entirely new level of quality, depth and features.

Here are a few demos of the library in action

Sick 3 also includes a collection of 335 live stereo convolution reverb impulse response files captured in a wide range of remote horror-friendly environments, including bunkers, prisons, waterfronts, graveyards, forests, chambers, warehouses, sewers and more. The impulse collection focuses on darker and more foreboding environments, from derelict prison hall to a claustrophobic earthen grave. Recorded at a variety of capture distances, angles and degrees of occlusion, they provide realistic coloration and spatialization when placing additional instruments, sound design and foley into a mix for music, film, television, video game or multimedia production.

Check out the GUI

This array of stylized, yet acoustically accurate impulse responses are provided as standard stereo PCM waves that are compatible with any convolution effect, host, virtual instrument or utility that supports wav impulse import. But we've also taken it farther and programmed the impulses into actually playable "percussion" ensembles. Each transient response is imbued with the natural acoustic properties of the space it was captured, allowing you to essentially play the physical world as if it were a massive drum set.

The library's sample content and convolution impulse responses have been carefully designed to meet the needs and standards of professional sound designers, re-recording mixers, film-makers, game designers and post-production specialists. However, it has also been programmed and tailored it to fit seamlessly into the creative workflow of composers and songwriters seeking mood-enhancing, textural and experimental source material.

Sick 3: Dark Places is a massive 4.5 GB and features 16 flexible and intuitive Kontakt presets. As always, we've added a range of automatable EQ, selectable reverb and sound-shaping tools integrated into the custom GUI. It's also at an intro price of only $59 through Nov. 7th (msrp $79).

Here's detailed walk-through of Sick 3 by Soundiron house composer Brad Halverson, including a demonstration of how the convolution impulses can actually be used as unique drum-like percussion strikes.
