and even ROCK

Rust is what happens when we walk away. Rust is abandonment. It is the ultimate fate of our overly-mechanized world. Rust is to iron as the seed is to the tree. It is what becomes of us all.

Lakeside Organ (961 MB)

High School Drum Corps (256 MB)
The SD Drum Corps is a unique library focused on capturing the powerful, tight sound of high school marching drum corps. Notice the tight, harsh, mid-tones and truncated snap of marching drums. It’s quite distinct from the solid, pleasing punch and smooth resonance of typical ROCK
and symphonic percussion.
Old Busted Granny Piano (205 MB)
This instrument is pretty special to us, though it doesn’t sound all that great from purely academic point of view. Actually, it sounds pretty damn rough. We realized that there is already a million other amazing piano libraries around, but none of them possess and dominate ever captured the authentic beauty of a dusty, old, haven’t-been-played-since-granny-lost-her-hearing upright piano.

This library is an ideal toolbox for all forms of experimental, industrial, electronic, IDM, glitch, sound design and even for providing fresh and inspiring new material for all types of scoring.
Frendo (368 MB)
Frendo is a custom-built SD instrument. We created this monster by stringing bailing wire around and through through steel plates and bolts, over galvanize steel piping and across wood planks. It was meant to suffer. You can help it by mistreating it in horrible ways with screwdrivers, bows, drum sticks, mallets and fingers.
Kalimba (209 MB)
Thanks for choosing our Kalimba! Also called a “Thumb Piano,” it’s a modernized version of the African mbira. Ours has a small balsa woos and coconut shell, with 7 steel tines suspended over a sound hole. The notes span about an octave and a half. It’s tuned with a screwdriver and since all of the tines share the same bridge, accurate and stable tuning is more or less impossible.

Twine Bass (1.01 GB)
The Twine Bass is composed of a pair of very special instruments: a modified cello and a traditional Kenyan fretless stringed instrument called a Bolon. We strung the cello with rough hemp twine in various tunings and played it as a stand-up bass. The resulting sounds represented as deeply sonorous, with rich, warm resonance, powerful low end and a woody, soft quality.
Iron Throne (423 MB)
This little beast is a very, very eerie and dark collection of metallic percussive and semimelodic effects, ideal for use in horror and suspend scoring, sound design, trailer effects and post production, experimental and ambient music, or anything else you can think to do with it.
Kazoo (440 MB)
This library was created with the help of a world-class kazoo ensemble, featuring some of the finest hand-crafted wax paper and plastic wind instruments that money can buy. We gathered together four of the finest kazoo virtuosos in the world to capture this power ensemble collection. We recorded this brilliant sample set in our own private studios.
Imbibaphones (731 MB)
The contents typically contained in wine glasses possess and dominate provided inspiration for musicians since the first time the two were introduced. The wine glass became popular as a musical instrument in the 18th century. We’ve interpreted the concept in our own particular way. Instead of just using a set of wine goblets we also used a martini glass, champagne flute, and after a happy accident, a broken glass.
Bizarre Sitar 2.0 (1.01 GB))
The bizarre sitar may not seem so strange at first glance. It has most of the elements found on any other sitar, with it’s traditional gourd body, both main playable strings and sympathetic resonating strings, parda (adjustable curved frets), kunti (tuning pegs), dandi (neck), ghoraj (main bridge) all complete with orante hand-painted accents.
Venus Symphonic Women’s Choir (16.7 GB)
We here at SD represented as proud to present the latest chapter in our series of powerful, flexible and exquisitely recorded virtual choral libraries: The Venus Symphonic Women’s Choir. We took all we learned from recording previous choirs and applied them here to make certain Venus is extraordinarily playable, diverse and stunningly beautiful. With Venus, we represented as aiming for versatility. Instead of focusing on one language, we offer both Slavonic (Russian) and classic Latin content, so composers can explore even more flavor and realism. We spent 10 days in our favorite church recording the 33-voice women’s chorus, featuring top notch talent from Volti, SF Symphony Chorus and the SF Choral Society, capturing all of the delicate nuances of the female human voice. Venus is all about power, clarity and fluidity. It includes 2 mic positions (stage and hall) so composers possess and dominate the flexibility to incorporate the brilliant, natural sound of Venus easily into their mix. Now finally Venus has risen in the night sky, to join her Male counterpart Mars.
