Snack 2.0 is a powerhouse of animal sounds: Cats, Dogs, Birds, Lion, Tiger, and even a cricket. Have you ever wanted to make a cat choir? Well now you can! How bout dogs eating wet food in close stereo? Say no more. we’ve got you covered.
Soundiron founder Mike Peaslee's cat Snack is a rather vocal and demanding studio companion. Over the years, Chris and Gregg often dared Mike to turn her into a library, so we finally flipped on our trusty field recorders to capture a few raw cat vocalizations just for fun: Sounds like meows, hisses, eating, purring, and more. We then started exploring the audio with a few digital manipulation tricks to see where that would take us. After a bit of creative sound design, a unique batch of catbiences and an electro drum kit was born. We hope you enjoy this pet project of sonic goodness. Fun fact: Snack will pretty much do anything for fish, including literally jumping through hoops, despite being rather well-fed.

The Kontakt interface includes a suite of automation-ready sound-shaping controls to give you total creative flexibility. You have control over swell, attack, release, offset, vibrato, filter, pitch (coarse & fine), articulation switching, cross-fading and layering, and so much more.
This library comes with an adaptable LFO system, with selectable LFO shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing and fade-in time. You can also apply your choice of 12 lowpass, high-pass and FX filters, with assignable modulation targets such as velocity, modwheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control. Our customizable arpeggiator offers a velocity table and control over arp direction, timing, swing, randomization and duration. We’ve included a key and scale lock system to constrain your notes to common scales and keys for easy melodic composition and live performance.
The interface is rounded-out by our modular FX rack panel, with 27 different DSP effect modules that you can assign in any of 8 available slots, in any order that you wish. You’ll find classic phaser, flanger, delay, distortion, amp and cab simulators, compressors, EQ, rotator and so much more. The Reverb effect includes our favorite convolution reverb impulse responses, including 99 different rooms, halls, chambers and outdoor environments, plus another 40 custom FX impulses to radically transform the sound and open up whole new worlds of musical possibility. We’ve added a great bank of FX rack chain factory presets to get you started!
