This long awaited announcement represents a natural progression for the company who will now offer a consolidated and truly comprehensive resource for music producers of every level looking to hone their skills.

Commenting on the launch, ADSR’s owner, Steve Foulds said “We have over 60,000 subscribers and an equally large social presence now who are very vocal in telling us what they want next, I’d like to say this new site was all my idea but to be honest it’s more a case of ‘the people have spoken’ “

ADSR Sounds

The ADSR network currently offers a huge range of web-based tutorials and courses as well as presets and samples both free of charge and paid. When quizzed about how the new ecommerce site might affect this model, Steve says “Don’t worry, we’re still going to be offering the same amount of quality free content. ADSR Sounds is our way of consolidating our offering into one platform. In addition to free tutorials on a larger range of synths you’re also going to see a lot more in-depth material being offered for producers who want to explore every last knob and button on their synths “.

All of the course materials featured on ADSR sites including MassiveSynth.com and now ADSRSounds.com are created by experienced, real world professionals offering practical step by step tutorials and courses.

Notably, KOMPLETE 9 and KOMPLETE 9 ULTIMATE are available for the same prices as their predecessors.

Its smooth and natural sound is complimented by an intuitive, streamlined control panel that allows users to quickly dial in sounds and start creating music.

Monark virtual analog synthesizer plug-in for Reaktor / Reaktor Player.

Based on years of research, MONARK uses REAKTOR’s powerful modular DSP framework to faithfully recreate the interaction of complex analog circuits, including the behavior of the filter when overloaded, filter and oscillator drift, and snappy envelopes that make stabbing melodic lines and even punchy electronic drum sounds easy to create. The sound has been fine-tuned by ear by MONARK’s engineers to create a powerful mono synth with a level of richness and depth not previously found in software.

BATTERY 4 is a completely re-designed drum sampler delivering powerful contemporary drum programming options in a sleek, easy-to-use interface. It provides over 70 new and exclusive contemporary kits tailored to electronic and urban styles.

The Unfinished Absynth Geometron

The Unfinished has announced Absynth Geometron, a collection of 128 beautiful and dark sounds aimed at ambient, downtempo and electronic film scoring.

Full of warm, lush and experimental noises, Geometron specialises in cinematic pads, dusty keys and subtle basses.

The idea behind Geometron is global-friendly post-club, early morning sounds. Think riding an empty metro train in Tokyo at 3am, waiting for the sun to rise over horizon in downtown Buenos Aires, or sitting on a Bali shore watching the fishermen go out for their first catch of the day.

The soundset is available to purchase at £14.99 GBP. A demo pack of 20 sounds can be downloaded free of charge. Geometron requires Absynth 5 (some sounds will not work in Absynth 4) and uses the .nabs format.
