Breaker

Kontakt Instrument by Soundiron

Breaker is all about the breakbeat, DIY-style. This hi-fi/lo-fi old/new school bastard was born to be broken, bruised, smashed, pumped, slammed, smeared, blown-out and beat to hell. Soundiron set out to find the essence of classic versus iconoclastic. Their goal was to build a big, fat and extremely diverse drum palette that evoked an equal blend of warm, smooth ‘70s funk and cold, hard ‘80s electro and pop. Soundiron created a drum library that is truly electro-organic: authentically electronic in sound but organically playable, providing the best of both worlds.

First, Soundiron captured a huge collection of over 80 pristine multi-sampled drum kit and auxiliary percussion elements, all bone dry and up close, with 8 velocity layers per note. Then they multitracked and re-sampled them, stacked tightly and a dozen layers deep, to grab a ridiculously tight, rich, aggressive and punchy tone and an ultra-wide, vibrant stereo field. Then they piped them through old analog signal paths, to induce a little crud and mild generation loss, with a generous helping of extra gain, pushing the sound straight over the edge into a fat, saturated, tonal beast.

The tone is ripe to be chopped, diced, sliced, flipped, trashed, drilled, derezzed, degraded and granulated. It's geared toward hip hop, electro, soul, funk, pop, breakcore, drum n' bass, garage, dub, techno, glitch, 2-step, trip hop, illbient, dub-step, house, and whatever fusion you can imagine. The sonic character can take digital, tape, or tube distortion and FX of all kinds and soak it all right up. The sound is fat, dirty and raw right out of the boombox, but a twist of a knob or two and you've got a searing, brutally crisp jungle kit ready to go.

For Breaker 2.0, Soundiron added a Remapper feature in an efficient four layer GUI to help you quickly get your groove on. They also created brand new ambiences and atmospheric pads from the raw source recordings, as well as 20 new custom FX presets to give you instant inspiration for your next beat.

Contents

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. Soundiron have also included 20 unique sound-designed custom FX presets to give you lots of creative options.

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. The customizable arpeggiator offers a velocity table and control over arp direction, timing, swing, randomization and duration. Soundiron have 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 the modular FX rack panel, with 18 different DSP effect modules that you can assign in any of 10 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 Soundiron's 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. Soundiron have added a great bank of FX rack chain factory presets to get you started!
