LVC-Audio Giveaway – Win one of 5 effect plugins

LVC-Audio is offering rekkerd.org readers a chance to win 1 of 5 free copies of any of its paid effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac.

LVC-Audio ClipShifter

ClipShifter 2 is a wave-shaping audio plugin that functions like a clipping-style limiter.

It provides enough user controls to be useful in all mixing stages: from distorting basses and drums, to maximizing mix buses and warming-up overall mixes.

The sonic characteristics of the clipping distortion can be altered from hard, brickwall-style clipping, to softer saturation with compression.

LVC-Audio Transector

Transector is an aggressive transient-designing audio plugin, used to attenuate various transient qualities of an audio signal.

Use it to boost the initial attack of various instruments, such as adding more crack to a snare or kick drum. Simultaneously, you can use Transector to alter the decaying portion of audio.

This is useful in many situations, such as decreasing the decay of a vocal track, or reducing to amount of room ambiance in drum tracking.

LVC-Audio HotPhuzz

HotPhuzz is a saturation designer plugin.

It is a creative tool that specializes in the creation of distinct saturation tones. HotPhuzz uses a multiband distortion process to create vintage, modern, and unique saturation effects.

Although HotPhuzz can be pushed into over distortion, it excels at creating more moderate saturation sounds. You can call the sounds whatever terms you like, but it still sounds good.

LVC-Audio PreAMPed

PreAMPed is an audio plugin that recreates many of the qualities of analog preamplifiers.

This includes subtle EQ response curves, low- and high- frequency saturation, differences between left and right signals, crosstalk, noise, transformer/coil impulse response, and saturation and EQ changes due to gain changes.

LVC-Audio TonedPLUS

TonedPLUS is a specialized tone shaping plugin with selectable analog modeling.

Expanding on the concept of the free plugin Toned, TonedPLUS is designed primarily for use in the mastering process or on two-track audio busses.

TonedPLUS uses two distinct equalization processes: a three-band tone-shaping matrix, and a specially designed high pass (HP) filter.

For a change to win one of these plug-ins, simply leave a comment below and tell us which plug-in you would like to win.

The deadline for entering the giveaway is October 31st, 2014, 12.00pm. The winners will be chosen randomly and notified shortly after.

Good luck!

Rankin Audio releases Jersey Club sample pack

Rankin Audio has launched Jersey Club, a new sample pack featuring booty shakin’ breaks, smooth, sexy R&B hooks and dirty 808 driven Trap beats.

Rankin Audio Jersey Club

Being pioneered by artists like Cashmere Cat and Trippy Turtle, released by labels like Diplo’s, Mad Decent and having recently had a Boiler Room special, Jersey Club has the blogs and the forums buzzing.

If you wanna produce a banger that’s both hype enough to get the ravers on the dance floor and sensual enough to get the lovers in the corner snogging, you’ll find all the elements you need in this pack. Musical loops include lush electric piano chords, big brassy synth stabs, chopped and screwed vocal cuts, epic synth lead solos, moody Moog bass lines and delightfully plucky arpeggios.

Beats wise, you’ll find choppy breaks, hood beats and bouncy triplet kick patterns. You’ll also find 30 drum hits including big snares, crisp claps, powerful kicks and of course, big 808 subs! And of course, it wouldn’t be complete without some expertly recorded squeaking bed springs (best not to ask about the recording session). So cue the demo and get ready to bounce!

Jersey Club features

  • 536 MB content, 24-bit quality.
  • 36 music loops, 6 808 sub loops, 10 bass loops, 9 chopped vocal loops, 4 straight vocal loops, 16 full drum loops, 16 tops loops, 16 kick and snare loops.
  • 30 drum hits, 7 fx, 33 synth & bass oneshots.

The sample pack is available from Loopmasters for £22.95 GBP.

Cinesamples updates Piano in Blue for Kontakt to v2.2

Cinesamples has released version 2.2 of Piano in Blue, a 1949 Steinway D piano instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Cinesamples Piano in Blue

Changes in Piano in Blue v2.2

  • Latency — Added “Sample Start” knob which will cut into the samples of the sustains by 20ms — this adjustment will remove all of the hammer/finger noise from the instrument.
  • Tape Sample Replace — Re-recorded all the sample sets back through a physical Studer tape machine with better leveling to remove the “crunch” on the top velocities.
  • Individual de-noising of V1 direct samples.
  • Sample fix — F4, Velocity 101-110, Direct-Room (fixes modulated distortion noise on this note).
  • 91-110 quick release velocities (fixes issues with the shorter release samples being too quiet in this region).
  • Various minor adjustments to ADSR curves and some minor volume tweaks on individual samples.
  • Added CC11 (Expression) control.

Piano in Blue is available for purchase for $99 USD. Requires Kontakt full version 5.3.1 or higher.
