Soundiron’s New Hi-Fives, The Ultimate Hand, Mouth and Body Percussion Instrument

Soundiron have releases Hi-Fives, a new hand, mouth and body percussion instrument available at an intro price of $15, $29 after the intro promotion.

Hi Fives features the streamlined magical anatomy of Soundiron founder Mike Peaslee, who recorded over 9,000 samples of body, hand and mouth percussion in two microphone positions and up to 16 velocity layers. Body articulations include arm, chest, belly, thigh, and cheek slaps with up to 12 round robin. That’s slapping yourself silly. Hands cover snaps, flicks, claps, punches, swipes, and scrub sustains, while Mouth includes clicks, pops, swishes, tongue drops, lip tweedles, spit, kiss, smack, gasp, exhale, grunt, heave, and an entire mouth-made drumkit. Sorry, no butt cheeks in this one. All of the articulations can be performed in ensemble, remapped, and randomized to create an army of Peaslees. This comprehensive human ham-bone beatbox features extensive round robin variation and deep dynamic velocity layering to give you ultimate realism, like you’re playing this body percussion yourself.

After recovering from a few resulting performance-related contusions, we expanded these mortal tones with 20 ambient less-organic soundscapes molded from the same source clay and dialed in 20 custom FX presets to kickstart your next phat beat. From Rock to Trap, Hi Fives is ready to liven up any track you slap it on!

The Kontakt interface includes a suite of automation-ready sound-shaping controls to give you total creative flexibility. You have control over swell, attack, release, offset, vibrato, filter, pitch (coarse & fine), articulation switching, cross-fading and layering, and so much more. We’ve also included 20 unique sound-designed custom FX presets to give you lots of creative options.

This library comes with an adaptable LFO system, with selectable LFO shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing and fade-in time. You can also apply your choice of 12 lowpass, high-pass and FX filters, with assignable modulation targets such as velocity, modwheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control. Our customizable arpeggiator offers a velocity table and control over arp direction, timing, swing, randomization and duration. We’ve included a key and scale lock system to constrain your notes to common scales and keys for easy melodic composition and live performance.

The interface is rounded-out by our modular FX rack panel, with 18 different DSP effect modules that you can assign in any of 10 available slots, in any order that you wish. You’ll find classic phaser, flanger, delay, distortion, amp and cab simulators, compressors, EQ, rotator and so much more. The Reverb effect includes our favorite convolution reverb impulse responses, including 99 different rooms, halls, chambers and outdoor environments, plus another 40 custom FX impulses to radically transform the sound and open up whole new worlds of musical possibility. We’ve added a great bank of FX rack chain factory presets to get you started!
