New Sonic Arts Giveaway: Win Nuance, Vice & Granite creative tools

New Sonic Arts launched about 5 years ago with the Granite granular texture generator. This unique instrument was later joined by the Nuance creative sampler and Vice loop slicer/sampler.

At New Sonic Arts, our mission is to define a new standard in audio software. That means the best possible sound algorithms combined with inspiring, next-generation user interfaces.

New Sonic Arts Nuance

Nuance is the powerful sampler that you will love to plug-in again and again.

Equally capable as both an instrument and drum sampler, Nuance has all your essential sampling needs covered. The compact and streamlined interface gets you straight into the creative flow, and with extensive modulation possibilities, modular FX, a full-blown map editor and unlimited parameter groups, the power for advanced sound design and instrument construction is waiting to be explored.

New Sonic Arts Vice

Vice is the inspiring loop sampler that will transform the way you work with loops and phrases.

Simply drop in a loop to immediately sync it to your host, or instantly map the individual slices across your MIDI keyboard. Then delve a little deeper to discover a wealth of loop-sculpting features such as per-slice envelopes, FX and modulation routing. Whether you need to subtly fine-tweak a groove, or totally transform a loop into completley new material, Vice is the tool you are looking for.

New Sonic Arts Granite

Granite is the truly unique sound engine ready to teleport you deep into new sonic territory.

Discover a world of evolving textures, haunting atmospheres and shifting soundscapes – from warped and twisted timbres, to beautiful shimmering pads. As users all over the world will testify, Granite never fails to inspire, and granular synthesis has never been so musical, immediate, or easy to use.

The giveaway

New Sonic Arts is giving readers a chance to win these wonderful tools.

  • pottering

    Thanks for the chance!

  • cheesemaster

    I’ve been keeping a close watch on these products since their inception into the market. I’m particularly drawn to the simple, yet- elegant GUI’s of these products. I have Kontakt-5- as well as other software sample players, but I’m rarely motivated to use it to create my own sounds, because Kontakt is cumbersome to program when I’m looking to make custom sounds quickly.

    Nuance: looks like it could be my “GO TO” sample player, when I need to make sounds rapidly with a no nonsense workflow. I’ve been waiting for a no-brainer type sale…but, winning a copy would literally make me do cartwheels!!!!
