Soundiron releases UFO Tone

UFO Tone is a multi-sampled metallic tuned percussion library that encapsulates a special hang drum from another realm. At Soundiron, we love anything rare, weird, or mysterious. This one checks all three boxes. We may have found this artifact halfway buried in a field, like it was dropped off from an extraterrestrial visit... After cleaning it off, we took it to St. Paul's Church in San Francisco - the same location we sampled Requiem Light Choir, Symphony Series Brass, and Alpha Organ. We used a mallet to record its eight tongues with a close stereo pair of Neumann studio mics for a dry and present sound, as well as a second stereo pair 15 feet away for an open, spacious far sound. You can chromatically solo, combine or layer the different articulations, tongues and mic positions to create your own unique sonic blends. Steel tongue drums are known for a smooth fundamental tone wrapped in a haze of complex harmonics, lush swirling overtones, and a long, mellow sustain. Buckle your seatbelt! UFO Tone will launch you out of this world.
We’ve packed the GUI with lots of great sound-shaping controls that give you the flexibility to warp the sound in many ways. You have control over Volume, Attack, Release, Transient Offset, Vibrato and Octave layering. The "Glide" control slider allows you to play legato and portamento leads. You’ll also find 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 13 lowpass, high- pass and FX filter, with assignable modulation control options, including velocity, modwheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control. You can also use our customizable arpeggiator, with a built-in velocity sequencer table and control over arp direction, note timing, swing, randomization and duration.
The user interface controls are rounded out by our modular FX rack tab, with 18 different DSP effect modules that you can assign in any of 10 slots, in any order you wish. You’ll find classic phase, flanger, delay, distortion, amp and cab simulators, compressors, EQ, rotator and more. The Reverb effect includes 119 of our own convolution reverb impulse response presets, for a huge variety of different rooms, halls, chambers, outdoor environments and creative special effect impulses to completely transform the sound and take this classic synth into strange new territory. The Microrgan was recorded using its direct analog outputs by John Valasis, a Greek- born composer, producer and sound designer.
