Soundiron Releases Chroma Bells

US A sampled collection of 12 tuned steel, brass and bronze hand bells      22/12/22

Soundiron tells us that Chroma Bells is a collection of 12 tuned steel, brass and bronze hand bells from England, India, China and Tibet. They say that each one has a distinct bright or dark resonant character, providing an awesome variety to fit any arrangement and that they're great for creating full melodic compositions, accenting percussive arrangements or even as pure sound effects.

A spokesperson said, "This library includes single-note rings, sustaining rolls and special muted articulations, each captured with extensive velocity-layering and round robin variations for exceptionally dynamic natural playability and beautiful acoustic realism. We recorded these instruments with 3 mic positions from dry and up close, overhead for a spacious room sound, and a pair of rustic tin can microphones."

The library is built for the full version of Kontakt 6.2.2 or later.
