Audio Genetics Lab releases Jailcell Slammer: Impacts and Hits from Alcatraz Prison

Audio Genetics Lab Jailhouse Slammer

Audio Genetics Lab has announced the release of Jailcell Slammer, a collection of ready-to-use one-hit impacts and effects created from recordings of the actual jail cell doors of Alcatraz prison.

While our field recordist was taking a public tour of the famous San Francisco prison, a special presentation was given on the sound of the cell doors. A long set of cells was closed simultaneously by a single operator at the end of the row, filling the historic space with a thunderous metal punch.

These huge metallic impacts were the starting point, and we at the lab took those recordings and created a set of hits, ramps, and sub-booms that are sure to cause a riot.

The simple user interface offers optional distortion and reverb (with a custom collection of 13 synthesized reverb impulses), and controls for velocity sensitivity of volume and/or filter.

The library includes a single patch with all the processed hits, ramps, and booms, as well as a collection of designed patches for out-of-the-box textures, tremors, and madness. Individual impact types (Subs, Big Hits, Ramps) have their own patches, allowing those samples to be spread out along the keyboard for more pitch control.

As always with Audio Genetics Lab libraries, all of the samples are accessible for your own mangling and modification outside of Kontakt. Drop them straight into your project or load them into your favorite soundmasher.

Jailcell Slammer for Kontakt is available for purchase for the introductory price of $9 USD (regular $15 USD). Requires full version of Kontakt 4.2.4 or higher.

Related: , , , Posted in news on Jul 22, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Josh Spoon has announced the release of The Joy of Racks, a new tutorial video series on Ableton Live racks.

The Joy of Racks is a video series of 20 videos where I will teach you the ins and outs of Ableton Live racks; great for beginners and intermediates (experts you could learn a few things too). Here are some of the things you will learn.

  • The different types of racks you can create in Ableton Live
  • How to build racks that can help you streamline your production and live performance
  • Grow your creativity to build racks that represent you.

I will also include Instrument, MIDI, Audio and Drum racks for you to use in your projects; 31 in total. The videos are applicable for Live 8 and up but the downloadable racks are Live 9 only. Few will have Live Suite effect in them and I will have (Suite) in the title. I have tried make substitutes for Standard users where possible. In the event that it’s not possible for me to make a substitute, you can replace that functionality with your favorite VST.

The video series is now available for purchase for $50 USD. A teaser (3 racks, one tutorial video on a HAAS effect rack + the rack itself) is available to download at no charge.
