Soundiron Tuned Artillery review

Submitted by on Jun 13, 2012

Hey what’s good fam, back with another review

This one is a little different

I’m checking out a percussion library from Soundiron called “Tuned Artillery”

Let’s check it!

So what is Tuned Artillery?

It’s a percussion library made from helmets, grenades, artillery shells, etc.

They were dropped, hit, rolled, struck with hammers, mallets, hands, etc.

They then took these recordings and created a custom Kontakt interface that allows you the  control to tweak and adapt them to your own liking.

You even get an “Uberpeggiator” so you can create arpeggiated sounds with them.

Quick Specs

  • content: 3.14GB
  • format: Kontakt 4 or Kontakt 5
  • price: $59

How does it sound?

This library sounds pretty cool actually.

I like the fact that not only do you get the percussion portion, you also get some ambiances as well.

This always makes a library more useful to get weird and unique sounds created from the same source material.

The differences between striking a shell with a hammer vs striking it with a mallet is enough to give you some good variety

It’s a pretty straight forward sound with some unorthodox percussion sources

What’s the bottom line?

Sometimes it’s just fun to have weird sounds and sources to pull from

This isn’t a make or break library, but for those that like to experiment with different types of samples it’s definitely one to check out

I give Tuned Artillery 4 out of 5 subs, it’s a fun library with a bunch of useful samples as well as a very useful interface

Go on over to their website and check it out:

They have so many cool little instruments like this to checkout

leave me a comment below, let me know what you think
