db audioware updates Sidechain Compressor & Sidechain Gate to v2.0

db audioware has released version 2.0 of Sidechain Compressor and Sidechain Gate, two effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac.

db audioware Sidechain Compressor

Sidechain Compressor is a flexible VST/AU compressor plug-in. It can be used as a regular channel strip compressor for clean crisp compression & limiting across a wide range of mixing jobs (e.g. adding punch to drum tracks or presence to vocals). For additional flexibility, the sidechain controls (Lo Cut/Hi Cut/Shape) let you customise the compression response.

Sidechain Gate lets you perform clever mixing techniques, by using a source track to gate a destination track. For example, you can use a complex hi-hat pattern in one track to rhythmically gate a synth pad in another track. Or simplify a busy bass guitar by gating it from a kick drum track (so the bass guitar is only heard when the kick drum sounds).

Changes in Sidechain Compressor & Gate v2.0

  • 64-bit VST and Audio Unit plug-in support (for hosts such as Logic Pro X, Cubase, Reaper).
  • Easier licensing (challenge/response has been replaced with a simple serial number).
  • A new sidechaining mechanism (using 4 inputs) in addition to the existing Universal Sidechain feature (Requires a host which supports multi input plug-ins such as Reaper).
  • Support for the latest OS X and Windows operating systems.

Sidechain Compressor and Sidechain Gate are available for purchase for $79 USD and $59 USD respectively. Existing owners of previous versions of these plug-ins can upgrade for $20 USD.

Embertone releases Chang Erhu for Kontakt

Related: , , , Posted in news on Aug 29, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Embertone has launched Chang Erhu, a deep sampled erhu instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Embertone Chang Erhu

The erhu is a two-stringed, bowed musical instrument. It may also be called a “southern fiddle”, and sometimes known in the Western world as the “Chinese violin” or a “Chinese two-stringed fiddle”. It is used as a solo instrument as well as in small ensembles and large orchestras. It is the most popular of the huqin family of traditional bowed string instruments used by various ethnic groups of China. A very versatile instrument, the erhu is used in both traditional and contemporary music arrangements, such as in pop, rock, jazz, etc.

Our Erhu can create profoundly expressive and beautiful music, and it’s also sooooo much fun to play. Its flexibility and out-of-the-box sound is undeniable! …and we don’t think there’s a virtual erhu out there to match it!

Chang Erhu features

  • True legato programming with 2x true round robin.
  • Bow Change, Slurs, Portamentos.
  • Custom Kontakt scripting by Andreas Lemke.
  • Control over vibrato speed and intensity.
  • 3200+ recorded samples.
  • 1.6 GB installed.
  • Sample resolution: 44.1Khz/16-bit stereo/mono (recorded 96KHz/24-bit).

Chang Erhu is available for purchase for $80 USD (16-bit) / $85 (24-bit & 16-bit). Requires full version of Kontakt 4/5.

Drum Broker intros Kingsway Music Library Vol.4

Kingsway Music Library Vol.4

The Drum Broker has introduced Kingsway Music Library Vol.4, a collection of 15 original samples (master clearance guaranteed) created by multi genre music producer and composer, Frank Dukes.

The Kingsway Music Library was created for the sample based producer, DJ, and beatmaker who wants original music to chop, flip, and arrange into headbanging beats without the hassle of digging through endless stacks of vinyl or worrying about sample clearance issues.

The Kingsway samples were recorded to 1 inch tape at 30 IPS, using an onslaught of rare vintage gear and instruments that the average beatmaker, producer, & DJ don’t have access to.

As a heavy collector of records and former sampling beat maker, Frank has an intimate knowledge of what makes a great sample and what makes a dope beat. These samples were created using extreme attention to detail specifically with the beatmaker and producer in mind.

The pack is available for purchase for $39.99 USD.
