Soundiron has released Sick IV, a horror scoring and sound design library for Kontakt 5 that is focused on gore Foley, visceral percussion and dark atmospheric content. It includes sfx captured with pumpkins in all shapes and sizes being played with sticks, hands, mallets and hammers, along with chains, buckets, stones hammers, saws, crowbars, power drills and other nasty sounds.
Sick IV includes 1,300 unique production quality sfx ranging from skull-cracking to flesh-drilling, as well as over 1400 body and object percussion samples, with 12X rr and plenty of velocity layering for each articulation. With the slap of flesh and the tonality of a gourde, Sick VI is a nuanced and fully playable "drum" kit that serve as a unique sonic alternative wherever meaty, organic hand drums are needed.
Sick 4 includes Soundion's new ARP meta-arpeggiation system (the "Uberpeggiator") with new saving/loading and the EZ-roll mode to create adaptive grooves and sequences. The FX Rack panel offers chorus, flange, phase, delay, distortion, compressor, EQ, amp & speaker sims and convolution reverb, featuring 70 custom rooms, halls and unique fx impulses. The library also includes a selection of over 50 long sustaining ambient pads, drones, atmospheres and hell-scapes, as well as dozens of fully playable melodic synth-like instruments warped from the source audio.
Weighing in at over 2.0 GB and featuring 123 unique articulations, Sick VI is designed as a complete all-in-one resource in a convenient package, intended for professional film, television and video game sfx and soundtrack design. This standard open-format library includes unlocked WAVs and requires the full version of Kontakt 5.1 or later. The free Kontakt Player and special Player Libraries rack don't support this format.
