Rhythmic Robot releases NanoMod 8-bit for Kontakt

Rhythmic Robot has launched NanoMod 8-bit, a free instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Rhythm Robot NanoMod 8-bit

NanoMod 8-bit is a simple but versatile Kontakt synthesiser based on vintage 8-bit polysynths, featuring an “intelligent” interface that allows the user to adjust multiple parameters with single controls. It is offered as part of the KVR Developers’ Challenge 2014.

NanoMod 8-bit brings the simplicity of Rhythmic Robot’s NanoMod interface to bear on the crusty, gritty, aliased sounds of classic 8-bit synthesisers of the early to mid 80s. Using source waves taken from vintage Ensoniq hardware and a front-end incorporating convolved Wasp and MS20 filters, this NanoMod is aimed squarely at big, powerful polysynth sounds – everything from warm and evolving pads to screaming leads.

The library is a free download, released as an entry to the KVR Developer Challenge 2014.

ZenSound has launched Pixelations, a soundset for the Zebra 2 synthesizer instrument by u-he.

This soundset is formed by keyboards, drums, basses, leads, atmospheres, SFX, sequences and arpeggios. All these sounds have an advanced 8 bit taste!

Pixelations features

  • 128 patches in Zebra 2 native format.
  • A guided installation in pdf and txt format.
  • All the patches are royalty free.
  • Includes free updates (volumes will be normalized and Mod Wheel control will be added in next free update).

The soundset is available to purchase for 14 EUR. Requires u-he Zebra v2.6 or higher.
