Soundiron releases Cylindrum v3.0 for Kontakt

Soundiron

Soundiron has released version 3.0 of Cylindrum, their synth-like tubular tuned percussion library for the full version of Kontakt.

The Cylindrum is a tuned percussion instrument designed using the principle of open and closed air column resonance. The instrument was constructed by Gregg Stephens with the help of some rather involved mathematics. The end result is a 20-foot-long tuned percussion instrument with a pitch range spanning a full 4 octaves. To Soundiron it sounds like a strange organic synthesizer coupled with tuned tom toms, with deeply nuanced dynamic velocity layering and extensive round-robin variation.

The Cylindrum library contains three separate variations of the instrument: dry small, dry fat and wet. The small set is made from a series of 1½-inch diameter PVC water pipes played by tapping fingers over one end, with a microphone positioned at the far end. The fat version is made from a series of 4-inch ABS corrugated plastic tubes with an open-ended rubber port hole, played with a ping pong paddle. Both sets were recorded in a dry studio room, giving them a full, resonant and fat tonality for arpeggiated melodies and driving bass lines. The wet version is built from 4-inch ABS corrugated plastic tubes with felt mallets on a 3/8" heavy rubber cap, recorded in an ultra-wide stereo array in a lush glass and tile hall. This slightly more distant sound and closed port is designed to deliver a much more brutal transient impact for dramatic scoring and layering with other percussion.

Price: $49.
