Soundiron Street Bukit
Soundiron Street Bukit is a deep collection of classic DIY ("Do-It-Yourself") drumkit sounds that are found in improvised urban street performers' drum kits.
Common to cities around the world, you'll often find street drummers playing an ecclectic variety of large and small plastic buckets, pots, pans and other scrap and found objects arranged into a rough sort of drum kit. They play with marching or rock drum sticks, jazz brushes, mallets and hands, with specialized technique for producing kick drum sounds – they left the edge of a large bucket with the side of their feet and them stomp or drop it back down in different ways to produce unique lo-fi “bass drum” sounds.
As raw a concept as this might seem, skilled street bucket drummers can be profoundly virtuosic, with complex, highly nuanced rhythms, grooves and cadences ranging from drum corps to break-beat to drum n' bass to industrial and tribal.
The Street Bukit features 5 different buckets and 5 different pots and pans recorded in three ubiquitous urban environments: city street corner, open garage and a small apartment bedroom. A comprehensive FX Rack panel is also included, with multi-effects, compression, EQ, amp/speaker simulation and convolution reverb, featuring dozens of Soundiron's most popular custom recorded rooms, halls, cathedrals and otherworldly fx impulses easily available right through the interface.
Street Bukit also includes a huge selection of real-world environmental ambiences that were recorded in a range of different urban environments to really put you in the middle of it all. And finally, there’s a broad selection of custom atmospheres, drones, melodic pads and soundscapes all hand-crafted and manipulated from the raw bucket drum source recordings to give you plenty of textures and accompaniment options, to mix and blend, all in a convenient and intuitive self-contained package.
