Soundiron Iron Pack 3 - Metal Tones
Virtual Instrument for Kontakt Full
Iron Pack 3 - Metal Tones is sculpted from natural recordings we've made from a wide variety of resonant metal objects and surfaces.
Flexible to all genres, it features tuned percussion and atmospheric instruments, including a metallic drum kit.
The Iron Pack series is a line of compact, affordable, and great-sounding virtual instrument libraries for Kontakt and universal SFZ formats.
Iron packs are handcrafted musical color palettes, perfect for inspiring your next original track or sound design session.
These bite-sized products give you a taste of our sound and style with a fully playable, lightweight and powerful sample set.
Iron Pack 3 - Metal Tones features 23 creative tuned percussion and atmospheric sounds. Each articulation was carefully sculpted from natural recordings we've made from a wide variety of resonant metal objects and surfaces.
These highly flexible samples are perfect for all styles of music, from soundtrack scoring, to experimental and ambient music.
Kicks, snares, shaker, ride cymbal, clangs, dings, and low impacts are all included in the Percussion - many taken from our Rust 3 library.
The ambiences have ethereal scrapes, steel pipe resonant overtones, strings, and much more.
Overall, this little machine punches well above its weight class and is ready for any percussive idea you’ve got in the tank.
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.
We've 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 low-pass, high-pass and FX filters, with assignable modulation targets such as velocity, mod wheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control.
Our customizable arpeggiator offers a velocity table and control over arp direction, timing, swing, randomization and duration.
We've 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 our 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 our 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.
We've added a great bank of FX rack chain factory presets to get you started!
This library is designed for the full retail version of Native Instruments Kontakt 5.5 or later. Kontakt is an industry-standard advanced virtual instrument software platform.

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.
If you'd like to use the sounds in these Iron Pack libraries in other synths and samplers outside of Kontakt, or you do not yet own the full version of Kontakt, you can still enjoy using all of the content and many of the main control features.
We've included universal SFZ presets. These open-format presets can be imported into any SFZ opcode spec 2.0 compliant soft-synth or sampler engine.
There are many SFZ-compatible VST, AU and AAX Plugin engines to choose from.
If you'd like an easy to use sampler plugin that can load these presets with a full-featured GUI, we highly recommend the free Sforzando player by Plogue.
We've optimized these presets to let you experience the full range of features we've included in our SFZ presets for this library.
Sforzando is compatible with vst, au and rtas plugin format standards. It's available for Mac OSX 10.9 and up and Windows 7 and up.
