Audio Damage releases Æverb Eurorack reverb

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Apr 23, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Audio Damage has announced the release of its Æverb Eurorack reverb module.

Audio Damage Æverb

Audio Damage Æverb is a digital reverb running a feedback delay network algorithm (commonly called “FDN”). The algorithm consists of eight short delays running through eight low-pass filters, with the feedback paths summed in to a single source that provides both the output to the mix and the input to the delays themselves.

This type of reverb algorithm is generally considered “vintage” sounding, and is useful in electronic music for its thick, non-realistic behavior.

The Æverb module is available from Audio Damage’s preferred retail partners, priced at $189 USD / 179 EUR.

Drum Broker releases Ultimate 808 by Erik Jackson

Ultimate 808

The Drum Broker has introduced Erik Jackson Presents – The Essential 808, a drum sample pack featuring the sounds of the Roland TR-808 drum machine.

Forget all other 808 Drum Kits! The Drum Broker teamed up with sound designer Erik Jackson to introduce an essential 808 Drum Kit designed and built from the ground up.

Erik meticulously sampled his Roland TR-808 through a Avalon 737sp, tweaking and recording every parameter on the classic Roland Drum Machine/Synthesizer. Paying careful attention not to alter the original sound and analog flavor of the TR-808, Erik ensured that he didn’t push the compressor too hard during the re-sampling process. Finally Erik created a kit that includes tuned hats, snares, and kicks. Each sample is labeled what note and key they are in.

The sample pack is available from the Drum Broker for $24.99 USD.
