Binary Music releases Energy Bow Guitar for Kontakt

Binary Music has announced the release of Energy Bow Guitar, an expressive sample instrument of an E-Bowed guitar.

Binary Music Energy Bow Guitar

The Energy Bow Guitar library is an expressive Kontakt instrument made from recordings of a Fender American Standard Strat played with an E‑Bow. Sampled chromatically from a drop tuned D2 to A5. We fitted a Seymour Duncan Little ’59 humbucker for extra sustain and everything was recorded cleanly through an Inward Connections Vac Rac 4000 pre-amp.

Energy Bow Guitar features

  • Chromatically sampled.
  • Clean samples with three round-robins per note.
  • ‘Character’ samples with three round-robins. These are still non-distorted samples, but feature the bow occasionally touching the strings and other performance blips and can be selected by a key switch.
  • Harmonic samples with three round-robins. The modulation wheel can be used to crossfade into them.
  • Release samples.
  • Tempo syncable LFOs for vibrato and tremolo.
  • Sample start offset to enable faster phrases.
  • All samples were recorded in 24 bit at 44.1kHz.

Energy Bow Guitar for Kontakt is available for purchase for £17 GBP/21 EUR/$23 USD including VAT in the EU.

Sample Logic releases Rhythomatix for Ableton

Related: , , , Posted in news on Jul 18, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Sample Logic has launched Rhythomatix, a collection of hybrid loops & kits for Ableton Live.

Sample Logic Rhythomatix

RHYTHOMATIX is a massive collection of morphed hybrid tempo-synced audio loops and kits made for electronic, industrial, pop, and cinematic music production. Sample Logic has created a dynamic jaw-dropping set of production-ready loops and kits all derived from real-world acoustic sample material and synthesis.

Taking it one step further, RHYTHOMATIX incorporates Live’s powerful instruments and effects all racked up only the way Sample Logic can, truly “blurring the line between music and sound design.” The creative design of RHYTHOMATIX pushes the boundaries of music production by using the intuitive performance controls of Ableton Live.

The clips (audio loops) and drums (kits) are seamlessly integrated into Ableton Live, which makes for a smooth workflow and intuitive user control. Each clip and rack uses Live’s Rack format, with eight Macro Controls meticulously mapped to provide powerful performance options and customization on the fly. This also means that all of the kits and loops are ready to be MIDI-mapped to a control surface or touch screen interface and automated directly in Live.

Rhythomatix features

  • Instruments: 339 Clips/loops, 16 Kits.
  • Effects: Beat Gate, Hi-Cut Filter, Filter Resonance, Filter LFO Rate, Distortion, Reverb, Delay, Arpegiator, Vocoder.
  • 871 MB Direct Download.
  • Mac/PC Ableton Live Standard or Suite Version 9.0.1 or higher is required.

The Live pack is available for purchase for $79.99 USD.
