Prime Loops The Sound Of Dodge & Fuski

Prime Loops has released The Sound Of Dodge & Fuski, a new Artist Series sample pack.

Dodge & Fuski have racked up an epic amount of views on Youtube since the beginning of 2011, currently standing at over 3 million and still rising! As if being championed by Radio1 and 1 Xtra wasn’t enough, the pair have also enjoyed plenty of attention from leading YouTube dubstep channel UKF.

In the dark depths of Dubstep, D&B and Electro, it can be a challenge to find a fresh sound but these boys have been twisting their own flavour out of these genres for years. The pack they’ve expertly crafted for us weighs in at a massive 515MB+, arming you with all the tools required to fix up your tunes with fresh, 24-bit Dubstep definition! From ultra deep wobbles, stomping drums loops and slippery synth skanks, to stadium-sized synth leads and tons of one-shots, this pack truly has it all!

The sample pack is available to purchase for £24.95 GBP.

u-he intros arpeggiator for Diva

Related: , , , Posted in news on Nov 30, 2012 - comment 0 comments

u-he has posted a video of an alpha version of the upcoming arpeggiator for its Diva virtual analog synthesizer.

The oscillators, filters and envelopes closely model components found in some of the great monophonic and polyphonic synthesizers of yesteryear. Modules can be mixed and matched so you can build hybrids, but what sets DIVA apart is the sheer authenticity of the analogue sound. This comes at the cost of quite a high CPU-hit, but we think it was worth it: Diva is the first native software synth that applies methods from industrial circuit simulators (e.g. PSpice) in realtime. The behaviour of zero-delay-feedback filters when pushed to the limit clearly demonstrates the advantages of this groundbreaking approach.
