Soundiron Shudder: dark glitch FX and evil drones by Juno VHS

Posted by Mike Peaslee on

Shudder is a collection of 501 uniquely mangled, destroyed, deep, nightmarish and glitched percussive samples by Juno VHS - along with FX, stingers, risers, and all the drones you'll need for your next horror soundtrack. Each sound has been designed using hard-hitting sources like our industry-revered Apocalypse Percussion and Temple Drums, as well as hauntingly corrupted noise makers, analog synth drones, bones breaking (vegetables), terrifying screeching metals, and much more.

Shudder is perfect for scoring horror, or adding a touch of grunge to any production. It's also great for sound design, particularly ambient and environmental horror. Each sound has been carefully sculpted by sound designer Spencer Nunamaker of Juno VHS, with awesome detail and nuanced character. With 8 categories of Hits, Stingers and dramatic Risers, and 3 categories of dark textural ambiences, soundscapes, drone pads and horror atmospheres, this library is an outstanding addition to your soundtrack-scoring aresnal weapon in any producer’s creative arsenal.

Shudder is perfect for any style of modern hybrid production, from minimalist, Trap, EDM, IDM, dubstep, chillwave and glitch, to post rock, soundtrack, hip hop, downtempo, dub and ambient music. It's also fantastic for sci-fi sound design and creating user interface SFX for games and apps.

The library is programmed for the full version of Kontakt 5.5.2 and later (OSX 10.9 or later / Windows 7 or later required). It comes equipped with a custom user interface and dynamic sound shaping and mixing controls: attack, edge, release, filter resonance and cut, bank preset loading (with optional key-switching), adaptive arpeggiation and built-in convolution reverb with your choice of well over 100 different rooms, halls, spaces and special FX impulses. All of the samples are also included as categorized and clearly named stereo wave files that can be imported and used in any wav-format compatible audio environment, sampler, editor, sequencer or other audio software you like.

You can browse our full collection of brilliantly sound-designed Juno VHS libraries here and even grab the whole bundle with Crystal, Drip, Tape, Lo and Shudder all together in a single download at a great discount! And we have bundle upgrades available if you already own one or more of our other Juno VHS libraries. Just email us for info.

Posted by Mike Peaslee on

Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble Micro is a brand new compact starter edition to our acclaimed Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble library. This heavy cinematic drum library features a total of 28 hard-hitting ensemble articulations, including 6 concert snare drum sets, 5 large tom sets, 7 bass drum sets, 4 Indian Dhol sets, 3 Turkish Doumbek sets, 1 Irish Bodhrán (frame drum) articulation, one Egyptian Riq and a Greek Daf articulation, so you have access to a broad range of powerful sounds to create with.

Each articulation we performed by an ensemble of each drum type, ranging in size between 3 and 6 players in unison, for a massively epic sound. Each articulation sound set has 4 - 12 dynamic velocity layers and 2 round robin variations per note. We captured these instrument ensembles in the same bright, open hall that we recorded our legendary Olympus Symphonic Choir, Mercury Boy’s Choir, Montclarion Grand Piano, Struck Grand, Tuned Artillery and many other Soundiron libraries. the space and wide large-diaphragm close mic array give these drums a potent and aggressively open sound, with just the right touch of transparent natural reverberation.

APE Micro has a simple and intuitive user interface with full articulation control, modular kit-building, dynamic arpeggiation and customizable FX routing, with over 100 real-world and special effect convolution spaces. The Kontakt presets in this library all require the full retail version of Kontakt 5.5.2 or later, or you can import any of the nearly 400 drum samples into any wav-compatible program you like.

And right now, new APE Micro owners can apply their full APE Micro purchase amount toward an upgrade to Apocalypse Elements or the massive, 25GB Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble, making this a great introduction to the world of APE. Email us now for your upgrade details.

Cinemania Review: Requiem Light, Mercury Elements and Olympus Elements

Posted by Jan Hoeglund on

All three libraries come with a large number of controllers. Some things can be controlled directly, while some others can easily be set by assigning any parameter to a hardware controller. But to tell the truth, all three are very well preprogrammed, so you will not need many additional tweaks to achieve great results. All three come with specific sounds and some unique elements, so for me there is no possibility that one library can be a substitute for another. Of course, Requiem Light is absolutely unbeatable and irreplaceable for score music, while Mercury and Olympus Elements can easily find its place in all sorts of arrangements and all genres. I’m not using pads anymore. Whenever there is a need for pad sounds, I would much rather put in some choir instead. It sounds much more impressive – period.
