Soundiron releases "Fountain Wires" - experimental plucked strings, atmospheres and re-synthesized sound design instruments for Kontakt - with Intro Offer

Soundiron has released Fountain Wires, an experimental tuned percussion library that captures the sound of thick braided steel strings under high tension strung between steel beams in a concrete and water feature surrounded environment.

This 853 MB library includes the original plucked articulations, as well as post-processed and manipulated re-synthesized articulations that provide punchy lead instruments, distorted guitar-like tones, undulating soundscapes, complex organ and e-piano elements, thumping bass notes and a wide variety of other musical and useful creative content.

All of it is wrapped up in a customizable performance control system, with multi-layer sound design tools, ADSR and tonal sound shaping, arpeggiation sequencing and a multi-effects rack panel with compression, amp & speaker simulation, flanger, chorus, phaser, delay, EQ, resonant filter and convolution reverb that includes dozens of custom rooms and special FX impulses to choose from.

The library is programmed for the full version of Native Instruments Kontakt 5.1 and later and comes equipped with a custom user interface that provides real-time automation control and customization.

  • 13 Instrument Presets with 31 selectable articulations.
  • 6 Tuned Plucked String Percussion Articulations each with 12x RR.
  • 12 Tuned Plucked Hybrid acoustic-source re-synthesized lead & FX sound sets.
  • 13 ambient, atmospheric, tonal pad and environmental sustains.
  • Multi-layered sound creation tools.
  • Custom key-mapping control panel pop-up window.
  • Arpeggiation step-sequencer and roll-simulator control panel pop-up window.

Feh! The "demo sounds" are all cool and groovy and evvihthang, but you can't really tell which sounds come from this instrument's library, and which are from other instruments.

Now, if all the sounds in the demo sounds come from the Fountain Wires instrument, then sign me up---'tis truly a sumptuous sonic pallette. I could make a whole album from it.

Alas, there's nothing in this article, the Fountain Wires product page, or the SoundCloud page that hosts the demo sounds that says what instruments were used to make the demo sounds.

Actually, all of the demos with the word "Naked" in the title were produced using only sounds and effects from the Fountain Wires library itself.
