Plugin Boutique launches Liquid Notes for Live group buy

Plugin Boutique has launched a group buy for Liquid Notes for Live, a songwriting assistant tool by Re-Compose for editing complex harmonic progressions.

Liquid Notes for Live Group Buy

It offers a controllable range of alternatives for chords and harmonies in singletrack or multitrack MIDI arrangements and makes the theory of harmony fully accessible to you. A powerful harmonic analysis atomizes even complex multitrack songs and detects their various musical elements and their correlations.

Musical adaptation (resynthesis) builds meaningful musical context from various input data (e.g. melodies, bass lines, chords, loops, rhythmic patterns etc.). This information is presented in a simple and clean user interface: Chords appear as rectangular boxes, with a vertical slider and two rotary knobs for changing chord functions, substitutions, and their tensions, respectively.

Liquid Notes for Live will be 50% off once 50 people join the group buy.

Bedroom Producers Blog releases free ESQ-1 Re-Boot sample pack

Bedroom Producers Blog has announced the release of ESQ-1 Re-Boot, a free sample pack featuring samples from the Ensoniq ESQ-1.

ESQ-1 Re-Boot

Neil Paddock of How To Program Drums has released ESQ-1 Re-Boot, a free collection of Ensoniq ESQ-1 hybrid synthesizer samples. I was lucky enough to join Neil for this great project and so I’ve created an additional set of NKI Patches (for use with Kontakt 5) which you can download for free on BPB.

ESQ-1 Re-Boot features 40 original instrument patches from the legendary Ensoniq ESQ-1 hardware synthesizer, known as one the finest hybrid synthesizers (with analog filters and digital oscillators). The library contains 497 samples in total, sampled across six octaves for each of the included instrument patches.

ESQ-1 Re-Boot is a free download for Kontakt 5, SFZ, Reason & Ableton Live.
