The Beat Boxer by Soundiron is a comprehensive and fully playable human beatbox vocal percussion library. This hybrid multisample/groove library transforms the creative vocal art of up-and-coming East Bay beatboxer "Jbox" (Jerry Girard) into a flexible and detailed virtual instrument.
The Beat Boxer features over 100 instrument articulations spread across 11 distinct "drum" categories, each with an average of 12x round robin variations. It covers a large variety of essential drums and classic beatbox sound effects, ranging from snares, kicks, hi-hats and toms to turntable scratches, synths, breaths, drips, ratchets, basses, clicks, pops, thumps, robotics, stutterbeats and more. An integrated MIDI Groove playback system is included (along with over 100 grooves), and users can quantize/loosen, add swing and reshape dynamics on-the-fly. The Beat Boxer also allows custom keymap saving and loading and ships with a range of industry-standard drum maps.
The Beat Boxer also includes 100 live performance loops and 108 augmented loops. Users have access to a variety of control parameters that allow tempo-syncing, time-stretching, legato blending, pitch transposition and more All phrases can be used in our advanced Phrase Sequencer which allows per-step start and end markers, pitch transposition and sequence saving and loading.
As always, included is a large set of bonus ambiences, drones, atmospheres, rhythms and leads based on the raw source material that has been contorted with the help of special effects and custom sound design techniques.
All articulations were recorded with two different microphones, a dynamic and a condenser, each with independent volume, panning and routing. The custom user interface offers the ability to reshape samples in real-time with attack, start and end offset, dynamic and release shaping, legato blending and more. It also features a comprehensive FX Rack panel, with chorus, delay, distortion, compression, EQ, amp/speaker simulation and convolution reverb. The reverb effect includes 70 different rooms, halls, cathedrals and otherworldly fx impulses easily available right through the interface.
