Welcome to Tuned Micro, a compact yet powerful multi-instrument collection focusing on a variety of our unique stringed and tuned percussion instruments. We took a dozen of the popular instruments found in our String Bundle and Tuned Percussion Bundles and selected a core set of samples from each that offer a good introduction to the signature style, flavor, tone and quality you can expect from our full libraries. You'll find a useful taste of Bamblong, Circlebells, Cylindrum, Imbibaphones, Kalimba, Music Box, The Struck Grand, Toy Glockenspiel, Twine Bass, Waterharp, Whaledrum and Zitherette. These products can be heard in a long list of films, television shows, video games, trailers, commercials, and records around the world. Click Here for mp3 demos.

Each of these instruments were recorded in a variety of locations, from dry studios to underground artillery bunkers. We used high quality Neumann large diaphragm condenser microphones in wide stereo for full clarity, presence and body to allow easy custom arrangement and mixing. The libraries that these samples are drawn from are all rigorously sampled, with full key range recording, deep dynamic velocity layering and plenty of round-robin variations per layer. Soundiron libraries are widely known for rigorous deep sampling, so while Tuned Micro's sample pool has been streamlined to an optimal 2 round-robins and 2-4 velocity layers each, every instrument is carefully programmed to preserve organic playability and dynamic responsiveness. Whether you've been curious about our multi-sample instrument libraries and are still on the fence, you're just now learning about us, or you're just looking for a few great new sounds to play around with, Tuned Micro is the perfect low cost and easy way to begin your journey.

The Tuned Micro library has been programmed with a very unique interface that combines some of our most powerful design features. First, we've provided a dual-layer matrix that allows any of the 20 individual instrument articulations available in Tuned Micro to be loaded and played instantly on demand. With two independently controllable layers, you can load and play any two articulations simultaneously (such as the Bamblong and Water Harp), with customizable volume, attack, start offset, release gating and pitch-shifting for each layer. Each of the controls can be automated and changed in real-time, allowing truly unique sonic possibilities.

Note: This product now includes both the standard Native Instruments Kontakt 4.2.4 open format presets and the ReFill version, designed for Propellerhead's Reason 6.0.2.

Kontakt Format

The Kontakt potion of this library is designed for the full retail version of Native Instruments Kontakt 4.2.4 or later. Kontakt is an industry-standard advanced virtual instrument / software sampler platform. 

Check out screenshots of our custom graphical user interface for Kontakt in the image gallery above. They provide a wide range of sound shaping parameter controls, each one totally automation-ready in your host environment or Kontakt's stand-alone mode.

This is a standard Kontakt open-format library, so the free Kontakt Player doesn't support this open-format Kontakt library. However, the sample directories are fully accessible to allow user customization, import and mapping into other wav-compatible software, sampler and synth formats.

The special Libraries tab doesn't support this open-format Kontakt library, but you can use the standard File browser tab, or import this library into the Kontakt database and Quickload tools for easy navigation, loading and organization.

Reason ReFill Format

The ReFill portion of this library is designed for the full retail version of Reason 6.0.2 or later. We've included 10 Combinator and 24 NN-XT presets in the ReFill package, featuring custom front panel user interface controls and artwork.
