Peter Dines has announced the release of Frame 3, a free creative sampler ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor.
Frame is a simple Reaktor sampler I built to implement a type of freeform looping and creative sampling I felt was missing from most other software samplers on the market.
Frame allows you to define a window of sound and sweep it across the sample as it plays without glitching or popping. Depending on the size of the sample, the smoothness, the spacing, and whether or not you’ve turned up the position / length LFO, you can get results that are reminiscent of some of the great creative sampling musicians – well alright, this also requires skill and taste; all I’m doing here is removing one of the technical hurdles. ;-)
The Frame 3 ensemble is a free download for Reaktor 5.8 (full version).
This is a new capture/take on the ever popular TR-909, this time combining outboard vintage NOS tubes and body compression in parallel. Those signals are then combined and fed into a high-end mastering equalizer to further glue, shape, and focus the sound.
The entire 549 sound collection in 16-bit, 44.1kHz WAV format is available here, complimentary.
The download is available from the Tonebuilder Facebook page (no Facebook account required).
Samplephonics has released Tortured Dubstep Beats, a new Drum Tools series sample pack featuring dubstep drum loops and one shot drum samples by Balkansky.

Musicrow has announced the release of Analogica, an advanced analog filter emulation for Native Instruments Reaktor.
Analogica is a fat and smooth analog sounding filter. It offers a distinctive warm character, sweet and beautiful self oscillation sound, flexible design and an intuitive interface. Analogica enables you to fulfill any filtering mission with ease. It is not only suitable for elementary filtering tasks, but also capable of producing beautiful raw distortion sounds, interesting rhythmic patterns and unusual musical effects.
Turn on the Ring Modulator and let it scream, produce a crunchy distorted sound using the Drive control, or turn (slowly) the special Analogica control for extreme results! Make your sound move with the groove! The Envelope Follower will let you modulate the filter cutoff depending on the incoming signal level, and the built-in Sequencer will add movement and excitement to your sound.
This filter can sing! By turning the resonance all the way up, you will get the desired sweet self oscillation sound that makes all the difference.
