Description : Bronze Bin is a unique library of metal percussion instruments with a rather specific tonal character.
Bronze is the most popular metal used to create high-quality musical bells and cymbals. So, when we came across this small dump of clean bronze, we thought: “What a waste of musical potential!” Just as art and practicality intersect by using this wealth, percussion and melody intersect, creating a huge palette from a single source. Producing from soft bell-shaped tones to scant inconsistent frequencies, Soundiron Bronze Bin is truly a unique percussion instrument.
We recorded a lot of tuned and frustrated percussion elements, using fingers, hammers and wands to reveal the whole musicality of this improvised instrument. All the subtle resonance and harmonic nuances were captured in detail using a stereo pair of studio microphones. Then we developed a whole collection of custom atmospheres, drones, pads, effects and other special presets. The resulting collection of tools is simple and expansive and perfectly suited for a wide range of production applications from experimental to traditional.
Articulation includes the impact of fingers, hammers and sticks, as well as special effects content. The library also includes a full set of custom controls. By adjusting the attack, you can get a soft, swelling sound. Use the offset function and trim the sample, removing the sharp transients for a gentle harmonious pulse. Adjust the Release knob to shorten the sample from 10+ seconds to a fraction of a second, ideally suited for percussion. All articulations are sensitive to cycling, and you can use the Swell knob to further validate its processing volume. Each articulation was tuned to the dominant frequency and chromatically spread over the keys, allowing this library to manifest both percussion and melody. The stepping handle provides a height shift of ± 48 semitones with the ability to switch the keys to ± 12 semitones.
