Nucleus SoundLab releases Reason Wizardry Season Two – Advanced Reason Tutorials

Nucleus SoundLab Reason Wizardry Season Two

Nucleus SoundLab has announced the release of Reason Wizardry Season Two, a compilation of Reason Wizardry video tutorials.

Through Reason Wizardry Season Two, you will continue to benefit from the vast sound design experience of Nucleus SoundLab Lead Designer Jeremy Janzen. Since 2005, Jeremy has pushed the boundaries of sound design in Reason – first by implementing 100% unique Combinators in a Refill; followed by the first commercial effects Refill; and finally by introducing detailed and educational PDF documentation for each patch. In keeping with this history of innovative sound design and sharing knowledge, Reason Wizardry Season Two goes even farther to walk you through Reason’s inner depths.

Reason Wizardry Season Two isn’t meant to rehash the basics. It won’t show you how to create a pattern in Redrum or how to load a sample in NN-19. Instead, by assuming each user had already read the manual and has a basic knowledge – Reason Wizardry skips directly to the good stuff. Each issue is packed with info on how to get the very most out of Reason devices, how to create your own sounds that step away from the cliches, and the not-so-obvious tricks that will save you time in your productions.

Reason Wizardry Season Two features

  • 10 full-length video tutorials.
  • Consists of nearly 7.5 hours of video and weighs in at 3.6gb.
  • Captured at crisp 800×600 resolution (some issues are 1280×720 HD).
  • Includes 68 example patches.
  • All the Main Topics from each included issue are listed below:
    • Wavesequencing in Reason
    • Envelope Followers
    • Hybrid Modular Synths in Reason
    • Advanced Thor Step Sequencer Usage
    • Reason 5 New Device Tips (Kong, Combinator CV Inputs, Sampling and more)
    • Sampling VST Instruments into Reason
    • MultiLoop Technology (as seen in NanoSequences)
    • Ear Training – for Sound Design
    • Malstrom In-Depth
    • Reason CPU Testing

Reason Wizardry Season Two is available to purchase for $29 USD.

IK Multimedia releases ARC 2 – Faster and better advanced room correction system

IK Multimedia ARC 2

IK Multimedia has announced the release of ARC 2, an update for the acoustic correction system that combines a measurement microphone, measurement software and a correction plug-in for most popular DAWs to improve the acoustics and sonic reliability of your studio.

ARC works by measuring your room using the included measurement microphone and measurement software and then generates an algorithm to provide a correction of your room’s acoustic problems that you can apply to your mix using the included plug-in.

You can record and mix with confidence knowing that what you hear from your speakers is a faithful representation of how your music will translate to the outside world.


The ARC advanced room correction system just got more advanced.

New in ARC 2

  • Completely redesigned interface for improved usability.
  • 4X greater resolution improves critical low-end response.
  • Smoother, more natural sound in the mid-range and high frequencies.
  • New combined L/R correction option maintains focus in perfectly symmetrical control rooms.
  • New customizable target curves now can match engineers’ personal timbre tastes.
  • New “Alt References” templates mimic the sound of consumer listening devices like car systems, speaker boxes, etc. allowing the engineer to test how mixes translate on different systems.
  • New Monitor Control panel interface streamlines workflow.
  • Fewer measurements now provide higher quality results and shortens set-up time.
  • Measurements can be saved and used for multiple correction set-ups.

ARC 2 is available to purchase for $299.99 USD / €249.99 EUR. Registered ARC users can update to ARC 2 for the introductory price of $99.99 USD / €84.99 EUR until August 31, 2012 (regular $149.99 USD / €124.99 EUR). Prices exc. taxes.

M-Audio has introduced the Axiom A.I.R. Series, a full line of advanced MIDI keyboard controllers, which includes the Axiom A.I.R. 61, Axiom A.I.R. 49, Axiom A.I.R. 25 and the Axiom A.I.R. Mini 32.

M-Audio Axiom 25 AIR
16 backlit drum pads, illuminated knobs and synth-action keys on M-Audio’s Axiom 25 A.I.R.

The Axiom A.I.R. series represents the latest evolution of best-in-class keyboard controllers from M-Audio. Featuring exclusive HyperControl™ automatic control mapping technology and groundbreaking Ignite music creation software, Axiom A.I.R. controllers provide an instant, fully immersive music creation experience. Everything, from their ultra-responsive keys and pads to their multi-color buttons and long-throw faders, has been crafted to provide an unobstructed evolution of musical ideas, from conception to expression.

“M-Audio Axiom A.I.R. takes an instrument-focused approach that makes it easier than ever before to create, capture, and share your best musical ideas. With better control mapping and integration with Ignite music creation software, we’re providing total control over your music tools while removing many of the barriers that slow down your creative process,” said Andrew Ramm, Director of Product Management for M-Audio and A.I.R. “This, combined with the products’ stylish and ergonomic designs makes Axiom A.I.R. controllers both highly desirable and uniquely capable in the world of instrument controllers.”

The Axiom A.I.R. Series’ name is derived from both the market-leading M-Audio Axiom product line and from A.I.R. Music Technology, the German-based developers of acclaimed, industry-standard virtual instruments and audio processing tools. The Series’ name signifies an unprecedented level of integration and virtual instrument control never before achieved in a line of MIDI controllers.

Each Axiom A.I.R. controller has its own unique characteristics, giving musicians a choice between four premium music creation solutions that are optimized for different creative preferences. The Axiom A.I.R. Mini 32 is made for powerful music creation on the move, with an ultra-mobile form factor, 32 velocity-sensitive mini keys, eight trigger pads and assignable low-profile knobs; the Axiom A.I.R. 25 is a hybrid keyboard/pad controller, giving beat makers and groove creators space-efficient yet comprehensive control with 16 backlit drum pads, illuminated knobs and synth-action keys; the Axiom A.I.R. 49 provides comprehensive control over any DAW for musicians of all types with an expanded layout of long-throw faders, illuminated buttons, backlit pads and 49 synth-action keys; and the Axiom A.I.R. 61 delivers all the same expanded features as the Axiom A.I.R. 49 but with 61 premium keys featuring TruTouch™ semi-weighted action for the keyboardist who demands a satisfying and responsive playing experience.

Each Axiom A.I.R. controller will come with Ignite, a new software with a revolutionary approach to music creation. Developed by A.I.R. Music Technology, Ignite is a discrete, standalone music ideation and creation software built from the ground up to spark creative ideas and enable musicians to build songs in an organic fashion. With Ignite, musicians are set free from the rigid and stale interfaces of the past. Ignite conforms to the user’s creative process and represents a fresh way of thinking about music creation—a way that complements and energizes a musician’s natural workflow. Ignite helps musicians unlock creative energy and construct songs in an instinctive and satisfying way.

The Axiom A.I.R. Series will be available from musical instrument retailers in mid-October of this year. M-Audio will unveil the Axiom A.I.R. Mini 32 at booth# 800 at the 2012 Summer NAMM show in Nashville, Tennessee from July 12-14.

Hollow Sun intros Advanced Noise Generator for Kontakt

Hollow Sun Advanced Noise Generator

Hollow Sun has announced the Advanced Noise Generator, a new Music Lab Machine for Native Instruments Kontakt.

It features very long 44/24 white, pink and low frequency noise samples taken from a true analogue modular synth which pass through a multimode filter offering eight different filter types. This filter can be controlled by two LFOs (one with simultaneous multiple waveforms which can be mixed for complex control waveshapes) and an ADSR envelope and then onto an output section with separate LFOs for control of amplitude and panning. This passes to a distortion section with up to four different distortion units followed by a delay and a convolution reverb featuring custom impulses.

The Advanced Noise Generator is therefore capable of creating all manner of dense and undulating noisescapes as well as no end of noise sweeps and effects … and with the distortion units, they can stray into IDM territory.

But the Advanced Noise Generator has another trick up its sleeve – the ‘Serendipity’ button! Click on the Hollow Sun brass plaque at the top and have the A.N.G. create a new sound for you at random. It might not be immediately useful but could send you off in new, creative directions. It also comes with 40 ‘presets’ which can be used as is or as the basis of your own creations.

It’s quirky, odd, different, unique and typical of the MLMs and a fine adjunct to the rest of the series.

Hollow Sun Advanced Noise Generator
Hollow Sun’s Advanced Noise Generator is suitable for almost any modern musical genre, providing noise sweeps, SFX and various distortion units.

Advanced Noise Generator features

  • 44.1kHz/24-bit.
  • Advanced Retro Synthesis Engine.
  • True analogue white, pink and low frequency noise.
  • Each sample 2 minutes long and seamlessly looped.
  • Multimode filter -2/4/6-pole LP, 2/4-pole BP, 1/2-pole HP.
  • Phase shifter filter.
  • 2 x LFOs, one with simultaneous multiwaves.
  • Various distorion effects.
  • Delay and convolution reverb.
  • ‘Serendipity’ function randomly creates new sounds.
  • 40 presets.

The Advanced Noise Generator is available to purchase for £8 GBP.
