Homegrown Sounds releases Multiverse Vintage + Kosmology updated to v1.4

Homegrown Sounds has announced the release of Multiverse Vintage, a new instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Homegrown Sounds Multiverse Vintage

Multiverse Vintage uses 98 multi-sampled instruments created with an Akai SG01v Vintage Sound Module as it’s sound source. The Multiverse Script emulates a Dual Synth design which treats the sampled instruments as virtual oscillators. The sounds themselves are a series of Basses, Synths and Pads which represent this often forgotten gem.

The idea with Multiverse was to redesign Kosmos from scratch, bringing many enhancements seen in the Kosmology Script. Multiverse has now replaced Kosmos, and if you own any Kosmos products, the multiverse versions are available on your download page.

The library is available for the introductory price of $24.99 USD for a limited time (regular $34.99 USD).

Akai Pro updates MPC software to v1.7.2

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Dec 10, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Akai Professional has released a version 1.7.2 update of its MPC software, with which Akai Pro wishes to foster a community of expansion builders.

This new update brings a number of useful bug fixes, stability enhancements and two new features.

Q-Link Assign
Streamline the way you can assign Q-Links in main mode. Now you can simply drag a pad to the pad panel straight in the Q-Link from the GUI. The Q-Link will automatically be assigned to the pad.

Expansion Files
Now available with the MPC expansion builder app. Simply drag in a directory and enter the details of your pack; the title, name, cover image, version number and some info about your creation, then hit “Do It”. The expansion builder will create an XPN file that you could share to the world. Drag that XPN file into MPC 1.7.2. No windows of Mac installers needed, just a seamless expansion installer experience.

To celebrate this update they have teamed up with Sonivox, the creators of the current MPC Expansions, to bring you a 50% discount (now $99.99 USD) on Playa Producer Pack (The discount is automatically applied in cart).

Fingerpushers releases Sampler Anthology 909

Fingerpushers has announced the release of Sampler Anthology 909, a new sound library focusing on bringing back the sound of old hardware samplers into modern productions.

Fingerpushers Sampler Anthology 909

In this library we have sampled a real TR909 with some of the most classic hardware samplers ever constructed, from the stylish Akai S1100 and Roland S770, to the warm and crunchy Emu Emax and Akai S950. Plus some samplers known for their dark and moody sound, such as the Ensoniq EPS. We even found an old sampling cartridge for the Atari ST that gives the classic 909 sounds an exceptionally artificial tone. Not something you can recreate with a simple bitcrusher effect.

The library is build upon ten different kits, sampled with ten different samplers. To recreate as many nuances of the samplers as possible, we included up to nine variations of each drum kit for each samplers, capturing different sampling rates and input volumes, from clean and pristine to crunchy and dirty and even outright broken and brutal.

The samplers used in Sampler Anthology 909: Akai S950, Akai S1100, Atari ST Replay 16, Casio FZ20m, Ensoniq EPS, Ensoniq ASR-10, Emu Emax, Emu E4XT Ultra, Kurzweil K2000, Roland S770/

Sampler Anthology 909 contains 9301 samples for each format, and comes with pre-made kits for Native Instruments Kontakt 4, Maschine, Akai MPC and FXpansion Geist.

The library is available for purchase for the introductory price of 14.90 EUR until October 12th, 2014 (regular 24.90 EUR).
