Soundiron Grit Kit begins with a simple, efficient acoustic 6-piece jazz drum set.
But from there, we’ve used all manner of sound design tricks to take you from lo-fi retro-lounge combos, to overblown and shredded death kits, to stuttering glitch kits and beyond.

Soundiron Grit Kit is a unique drum kit library which begins with a simple, efficient acoustic 6-piece drum kit.
It’s your all-around basic stereo jazz set, with kick, 14″ snare, 10″ snare, floor tom, mid and high toms, hi-hats, ride-crash, large and small splashes.
This fully playable and functional drum kit offers a warm sound, with 12 round-robin variations per layer and fully responsive dynamic layering.
Built into an easy to use preset with tons of built-in FX options, this by itself can serve as a great “plug and play” drum kit instrument for just about any style of music.
But that’s just where we get started.
From that raw essence, we’ve used all manner of strange and mysterious sound design tricks, hacks and evil science to build a killer collection of 15 complete special FX drum kits, exploring decayed, demolished, destroyed and generally degenerated percussion sounds.
We take you from lo-fi retro-lounge combos, to brutally overblown and shredded death kits, to crisply stuttering glitch kits and beyond.
We’ve packed the user interface with powerful sound-shaping controls to give you complete flexibility. The Master Kit presets contain every sample in the library and a host of powerful performance features.
Use the Remapper to create custom drum mappings or load any of our factory presets which include a number of common drum maps for easy use with existing MIDI drum loops and grooves.
Our powerful mixer allows you to route each instrument track to any available output in Kontakt and includes individual control for Volume, Pan, FX Send, and Stereo width, from mono to full stereo spread, as well as an FX chain with compressor, limiter, 4-band parametric EQ and more!
The Master section features Space and Delay FX sends with a wide variety of options for each.
In the advanced settings pull-down window, you’ll also find an adaptable per-layer LFO system, with selectable LFO shape, modulation target parameter, speed, intensity, tempo-syncing and fade-in time.
You can also apply your choice of 13 lowpass, high-pass and FX filters, with assignable modulation targets such as velocity, mod-wheel, expression, after-touch, key position and step-sequencer table control.
Our customizable arpeggiator features a built-in velocity sequencer table and control over arp direction, note timing, swing, randomization and duration.
The built-in modular FX rack window offers 27 different DSP effect modules that you can assign in any of 8 available slots, in any order that you wish.
You’ll find classic phase, flanger, delay, distortion, amp and cab simulators, compressors, EQ, rotator and so much more. The Reverb effect includes 99 of our own convolution reverb impulse presets.
We’ve captured a huge variety of different rooms, halls, chambers and outdoor environments, along with 139 unique, strange and creative special effect impulses to completely transform the sound and open up whole new worlds of musical possibility.
