Time+Space has announced it is now shipping ProjectSAM’s Lumina, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
ProjectSAM is well-known for its ensemble recording concept, and this third volume in the critically acclaimed Symphobia series trumps this with even finer arrangements.
The warmth and beauty of orchestra and choir performing together has been captured in stunning, playable ensembles. Moreover, Lumina is packed with superbly orchestrated textures covering the full spectrum of fantasy and mystery. Refined with grand piano, harp and percussion, these recordings are truly luminous.
Lumina’s solo and guest instruments range from legato woodwinds, such as oboe and clarinet, to a beautifully sampled Celtic harp, tin whistle and a full bell tower! The library also pays homage to the playful world of cartoons with dedicated ensembles and phrases for careful tiptoeing and tongue-in-cheek suspense.
Of course you will find ProjectSAM´s popular Dystopia section, too, with all-new sound design based on Lumina’s samples.
Lumina is available to purchase on a USB stick from Time+Space, priced at RRP £840 GBP / €995 EUR (inc VAT).

u-he has announced the release of Uhbik T and Runciter, two new Rack Extension effects for Propellerhead Reason.
Tremolo – but if you think that just means ‘volume wobble’ you haven’t tried the mother of all tremolos yet: Uhbik-T!
Our tremolo unit Uhbik-T is a general-purpose ‘rhythmicizer’ featuring linear or exponential gain modulation. But there’s much more: You can morph between user-defined patterns in the 11 x 16 grid, apply rhythmic lowpass filtering, add vibrato or Haas-delay spatial effects… tremolo redefined!
Runciter. Filter with parallel lowpass, bandpass and highpass outputs, resonance, controllable input overdrive and brick-wall fuzz.
Filters were always dramatic sound-shaping tools, one reason why they’re still so popular. But users today expect more than a simple resonant lowpass, so here’s RUNCITER! For classic wah-wah, add low- and highpass together then control cutoff from a MIDI pedal. Or max out the resonance and drive the input from -48db to 48dB for a vast range of effects… instant glittering sweeps or absolute filter mayhem!
Both Rack Extensions are available for the introductory price of $19 USD until June 16th, 2013 (regular $39 USD).
u-he has also launched the creative, modulation, and studio effects bundles, as well as the All of Uhbik bundle comprising all 9 effects in a discounted package.
