Karoryfer Samples releases Ironface synth library for Sforzando

27th January 2015

Karoryfer Samples has released Ironface, a free open-source sample library for Plogue Sforzando which combines samples of a bowed double bass with synthesizer-style controls.

Instead of trying to accurately recreate the sound of a double bass, Ironface is instead designed to be an anachronistic combination of acoustic bowed sounds, large numbers of unison voices per note like one might find in a modern digital synth, and controls typical of simple analog synths. It can produce warm and organic versions of many classic sounds, from resonant bass plucks to string machines.

Key features:

Price: Free. Due to the controls and advanced SFZ opcodes used, this library will not work fully in any SFZ sampler other than Plogue Sforzando with the latest ARIA Engine update applied.

Ironface is the only sound source in the below demo, and no external effects are used except for compression on the master channel.
