99Sounds releases The Warehouse free SFX pack

99Sounds has launched The Warehouse, a free collection of 116 sound effects and organic percussion sounds created by Richard Gould.

99Sounds The Warehouse

The Warehouse is a sample instrument containing a range of SFX elements recorded in a military storage facility in the United Kingdom. It includes wooden, metallic and glass elements. Many of the sounds were captured within the natural ambience of the facility. The sounds can easily be used as percussion elements as well as straight sound effects.

Creaking doors, rattling chains, spooky metallic echoes and glass scraping sounds are the sort of stuff you’ll find in The Warehouse. These samples can be used as scary sound effects, however most of them will also work very well as organic percussive sounds for layering on top of drum loops. My favorite part of the library are the samples of an electric lift, which almost beg to be used as foley robot sounds in a Transformers style movie.

The sample pack is available as a free download.

Nucleus SoundLab releases Analog Theory for MonoPoly

Nucleus SoundLab has announced the release of Analog Theory, a new ReFill for the MonoPoly synthesizer Rack Extension instrument from Korg.

Nucleus SoundLab Analog Theory

Virtual Analog has come a long way. Take Korg’s MonoPoly Rack Extension for example. Not only does it replicate the capabilities and sounds of this classic hardware synthesizer, but it exceeds the original with features like true polyphony and unison. In fact, MonoPoly is the perfect starting point for creating next-gen electronica timbres in Reason! It’s only drawback is that it doesn’t come packed with any Combinator patches whatsoever. Let’s fix that, shall we? Introducing our latest ReFill – featuring MonoPoly – Analog Theory.

Analog Theory is a ReFill that pushes the boundaries of what is possible with Virtual Analog in the Reason environment. Our experienced sound design team has fused the classic power of MonoPoly with the flexibility of the Reason Combinator to create some very unique sounds. MonoPoly is filled to the electronic brim with thick chordal layers, expressive plucks, dubstep growlers, and gated atmospheres.

You won’t be disappointed with Analog Theory’s attention to detail. All the standard highlights of Nucleus SoundLab ReFills are still present: Unique Combinators with unique Combinator controls; MonoPoly patches that make up each Combinator are individually available; full categorization of both Combinators and device patches; careful volume-balancing for every single patch. Power-up your music with Analog Theory today!

Analog Theory features

  • 113 unique Combinators across ten categories.
  • 163 MonoPoly device patches.
  • 2 demo songs packed inside the ReFill.
  • All Combinator rotaries/buttons/modwheel uniquely mapped.
  • Patches designed by veteran Reason sound designers.
  • Requires: MonoPoly Rack Extension.

The Analog Theory ReFill is available for purchase for $39 USD.
