Welcome to Tuned Micro, a compact yet powerful multi-instrument collection focusing on a variety of our unique stringed and tuned percussion instruments. We took a dozen of the popular instruments found in our Stringed and Tuned Percussion Bundles and selected a core set of samples from each that offer a good introduction to the signature style, flavor, tone and quality you can expect from our full libraries. You’ll find a useful taste of Bamblong, Circlebells, Cylindrum, Imbibaphones, Kalimba, Music Box, The Struck Grand, Toy Glockenspiel, Twine Bass, Waterharp, Whaledrum and Zitherette. These products can be heard in a long list of films, television shows, video games, trailers, commercials, and records around the world. Click Here for mp3 demos.
Each of these instruments were recorded in a variety of locations, from dry studios to underground artillery bunkers. We used high quality Neumann large diaphragm condenser microphones in wide stereo for full clarity, presence and body to allow easy custom arrangement and mixing. The libraries that these samples are drawn from are all rigorously sampled, with full key range recording, deep dynamic velocity layering and plenty of round-robin variations per layer. Soundiron libraries are widely known for rigorous deep sampling, so while Tuned Micro’s sample pool has been streamlined to an optimal 2 round-robins and 2-4 velocity layers each, every instrument is carefully programmed to preserve organic playability and dynamic responsiveness. Whether you’ve been curious about our multi-sample instrument libraries and are still on the fence, you’re just now learning about us, or you’re just looking for a few great new sounds to play around with, Tuned Micro is the perfect low cost and easy way to begin your journey.

The Tuned Micro library has been programmed with a very unique interface that combines some of our most powerful design features. First, we’ve provided a dual-layer matrix that allows any of the 20 individual instrument articulations available in Tuned Micro to be loaded and played instantly on demand. With two independently controllable layers, you can load and play any two articulations simultaneously (such as the Bamblong and Water Harp), with customizable volume, attack, start offset, release gating and pitch-shifting for each layer. Each of the controls can be automated and changed in real-time, allowing truly unique sonic possibilities.
Secondly, we’ve built our Uberpeggiator into the front panel, so that you can quickly design complex and adaptive arpeggiations, whether freehand or using the velocity table and a number of specialized controls that can be used to craft remarkably intricate musical passages on the fly. Third, we’ve integrated a fully sweepable 3-band equalizer with gain, frequency and bandwidth controls for each band. Lastly, we’ve added our convolution loading system, which allows you to select and modify 6 of our real-world spaces and 6 of our favorite special FX reverb impulses. Each of these features can be bypassed to save voices and processing power as needed.
