Soundiron Breaker 2.0 -
Drum Machine Virtual Instrument for Kontakt Full
Breaker is all about the breakbeat, DIY-style. This hi-fi/lo-fi old/new school bastard was born to be broken, bruised, smashed, pumped, slammed, smeared, blown-out, and beat to hell. We set out to find the essence of classic versus iconoclastic. Our goal was to build a big, fat, and extremely diverse drum palette that evoked an equal blend of warm, smooth '70s funk and cold, hard ‘80s electro and pop. We created a drum library that is truly electro-organic: authentically electronic in sound but organically playable, providing the best of both worlds.
First, we captured a huge collection of over 80 pristine multi-sampled drum kit and auxiliary percussion elements, all bone dry and up close, with 8 velocity layers per note. Then we multitracked and re-sampled them, stacked tightly and a dozen layers deep, to grab a ridiculously tight, rich, aggressive, and punchy tone and an ultra-wide, vibrant stereo field. Then we piped them through old analog signal paths, to induce a little crud and mild generation loss, with a generous helping of extra gain, pushing the sound straight over the edge into a fat, saturated, tonal beast.
The tone is ripe to be chopped, diced, sliced, flipped, trashed, drilled, derezzed, degraded, and granulated. It's geared toward hip hop, electro, soul, funk, pop, breakcore, drum n bass, garage, dub, techno, glitch, 2-step, trip hop, illbient, dubstep, house, and whatever fusion you can imagine. The sonic character can take digital, tape, or tube distortion and FX of all kinds and soak it all right up. The sound is fat, dirty, and raw right out of the boombox, but a twist of a knob or two and you've got a searing, brutally crisp jungle kit ready to go.
For Breaker 2.0, we added a Remapper feature in an efficient four-layer GUI to help you quickly get your groove on. We also created brand new ambiences and atmospheric pads from the raw source recordings, as well as 20 new custom FX presets to give you instant inspiration for your next beat.

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. You can view screenshots of this library's custom graphical user interface in the image gallery above. This library is packed with features to provide you a wide range of sound shaping parameter controls, each one totally automation-ready in your host environment or Kontakt's stand-alone mode.
This is a standard Kontakt open-format library, so the free Kontakt Player does not fully support it and can only run it in a limited "demo mode". However, the sample directories are unlocked so you can use them in other wav-compatible software, sampler and synth formats. The special Libraries tab doesn't support this open-format Kontakt library, but you can use the standard File browser tab and import this library into the Kontakt Quickload window for easy loading and navigation.
- Native Instruments Kontakt Full 5.5 (or later)
