Sound Dust presents SteelDrumPercussionRoom, the fourth volume in their Modular Chaos Engine series for Kontakt 5.5.1+.

Sound Dust’s SteelDrumPercussionRoom is described as a kit of dusty, binaurally recorded acoustic drum samples and slightly prepared steel drums… Or, in the words of its creators, “a kind of Tom Waits percussion machine” with drums of all shapes and all sizes.

There are huge marching band bass drums, ripped and rattly snares and kicks, frame drums, congas, bongos, toms, hi-hats, cymbals, boxes, broken metal shelving… Plus, there are the “prepared” steel drums. These are composed of a neglected set of bass and cello steel pans, played with fingers and soft mallets to avoid sounding like proper steel drums so as to ensure the sound to be more about apocalypse than calypso. The tunings are said to be quite iffy, but there are many velocity layers per hit for what is announced as a rusty hang drum like effect.

Both kits were recorded binaurally in a room with long decays. 

Features include:

  • 400+ original 24-bit binaurally recorded samples.
  • Bang Engine page: 12 user programmable, key triggered sequencers with 12 tracks of drum hits per sequence – up to 30 sounds available per note.
  • Klang Engine page: 12 user programmable, key triggered sequencers with 12 tracks of steel drums per sequence – up to15 sounds available per note.
  • One Shot Kit page: 4 octaves of programmable one shot kits with chaos and order parameter randomisation control.
  • Sends and Master FX page – control of master levels, master EQ and transient designer.
  • 10 instrument presets (.nki’s) for Kontakt 5.
  • Sound Dust SteelDrumPercussionRoom : mce41
  • Sound Dust SteelDrumPercussionRoom : mce42
  • Sound Dust SteelDrumPercussionRoom : mce43
  • Sound Dust SteelDrumPercussionRoom : mce44

 

SteelDrumPercussionRoom requires the full version of Kontakt 5.5.1 or above and is announced at a MSRP of £25, but as a special introductory price it is available for £15 (that is 40% off) until March 7th, 2016 using discount code MCE4INTRO.

During the same period of time, all three other Modular Chaos Engine volumes (Found, Evolved and OddHop) are available with a 20% discount until the same date of March 7th using code CHAOS20.
