Sample Magic has announced the release of Vintage House Chords and SH101 Acid Lines, two new sample packs.
Vintage House Chords features a collection of gritty, old school chord shots for classic house jams.
Dusty keys, classic organs and retro synths abound in this 101-strong collection of chord stabs imbued with the trademark warmth and character of classic US house and garage.
Processed through a raft of classic samplers – including the Akai MPC60, MPC1000 and Ensoniq Mirage – the chords are stamped with 8 and 12-bit crunch to give your tracks the distinctive re-sampled aesthetic synonymous with the east coast house sound.
SH101 Acid Lines is a sample pack featuring 101 authentic acid loops from the Roland SH-101 synthesizer.
Paying homage to early acid, rave and hardcore, SH101 Acid Lines puts a contemporary twist on the classic acid sound to create 101 analogue workouts primed for the new wave of acid-injected electro and techno.
Sourced from our much-loved SH-101, each loop has been expertly tweaked, filtered and modulated on the fly to create killer acid cuts oozing with analogue attitude.
Vintage House Chords costs £9.90 GBP, SH0101 Acid Lines is £12.90 GBP.

Anton Lyubenov Savov aka Antto has released version 1.0 of Venom VB-303, a free synthesizer instrument for Windows.
The Venom VB-303 is an approximation of the classic 303 Bass Line synthesizer.
I don’t want to delay this any longer. I disabled some functions because they are not vital and were a little broken: .303 file import/export and pattern manipulators are disabled. MidiPlay mode has an annoying lock to encourage you to use the sequencer more often.
A huge thanks to you KVR people, for your patience, help, and feedback.
Venom VB-303 is available to download for Windows (VST).

AudioRealism has announced public beta version 2.9 of AudioRealism Bass Line 2 for Windows, a virtual bass line synthesizer instrument.
The legendary silver box which is hallmark in electronic music has been recreated in AudioRealism Bass Line 2 (ABL2). Analog modeling techniques have been employed to create a DSP-algorithm that accurately emulates every aspect of the original 303, from growling basses to hollow middles and beeping highs with metal rattling accents. Patterns are composed in a fashion similar to the original using the integrated step sequencer with easy to use manipulation functions such as transpose and randomization.
AudioRealism Bass Line 2 synthesizer plug-in
Changes in ABL2 v2.9.0
- Added 64-bit support.
- Improved Window compatability by storing patches and other files under My Documents.
- Improvements to the 303 engine.
- Patches are now stored in .pat and .param files instead of embedding the parameters into the .pat via meta-tags.
