Related: , , Posted in news on Oct 30, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Patchpool has launched Sonic Tabulator, a sound library for the Serum synthesizer instrument by Xfer Records.

Patchpool Sonic Tabulator for Serum

Sonic Tabulator contains 101 patches including 1 variation covering a wide range of atmospheric sounds, warm pads, huge drones, tinkling bells, snappy plucks, expressive leads and resynthesized instruments, other worldy noises and animated sequences. Cold digitalness and darker soundworlds unite with warm, emotionally appealing sonic goodness.

All waveforms in this set are new and fresh, often created by using samples of acoustic instruments from the gigantic pool of patchpool samples as sound sources for the generation of wavetables. Depending on the amount of slots in Serum’s modulation matrix, each patch has up to 4 Macros and the Modwheel assigned, many also use Aftertouch. As Serum also allows for sample playback in it’s noise oscillator, a folder with wav samples (26 wavs / stereo / 44.1 Khz / 24 and 16 Bit / 226.4 MB) comprising soundscapes, drones, vocal and instrumental textures and field recordings is also included in this library.

Sonic Tabulator pack is available for purchase for 28 EUR.

Native Instruments releases Traktor Kontrol S8 all-in-one DJ system

Native Instruments has announced the release of Traktor Kontrol S8, a DJ controller featuring innovative touch-sensitive controls and full-color displays, a 4-channel standalone mixer, extensive audio interface, and enhanced performance decks for advanced integration of TRAKTOR PRO 2’s Remix Decks.

Native Instruments Traktor Kontrol S8

Designed to maximize creative expression, TRAKTOR KONTROL S8’s deck sections and workflow simplify live editing and remixing to introduce a different paradigm in DJ performance. New performance tools such as Freeze Mode take a snapshot of a running track and enable detailed slicing for instant live improvisation and an element of spontaneity.
The dedicated Remix Deck View provides hands-on control of Remix Sets, samples, and loops while monitoring a deck in full-view on the S8’s displays.

TRAKTOR KONTROL S8 not only delivers dynamic new touch-and-see workflow, but adds unprecedented flexibility with both classic and modern mixing media. Digital DJs can fine-tune mixes with two wide touch strips for precise track seeking and pitch-bending directly on the unit. Standalone mixer functionality offers connectivity for up to four turntables or CDJs – perfect for analog or timecode vinyl/CD control with the included TRAKTOR SCRATCH PRO 2 software. Remix Deck functions can even be controlled with timecode media for extended hybrid analog-digital control.

Central to the TRAKTOR KONTROL S8 experience, its advancements in hardware design deliver uncompromising, professional build quality unmatched even in products exceeding its price-tier. The 4-channel standalone mixer features a detachable fader panel fitted with patented inverse carbon strip faders that exponentially reduce dust and wear.
Faders can be replaced for maintenance on the unit, prolonging the S8’s lifespan. The XLR, ¼”, and RCA signal outputs from the extensive on-board audio interface surpass that of any current TRAKTOR product, and easily rival CDJ output levels.

Traktor Kontrol S8 is now available for purchase for $1199 USD / 1199 EUR.
