Ueberschall has announced the release of Ambient Noises, a sample library for Elastik Player featuring a collection of abstract song structures for ambient moods.
Take a trip to the darker end of the ambient spectrum with Ambient Noises. With 20 constructions kits of down-tempo moods, these loops capture the more sinister tone of ambient music. These samples will bring instant atmosphere to any music-to-picture project but, with strong rhythmic and harmonic elements in each kit, add your own soulful vocals and they also provide the groundwork for your latest ambient song projects. Featuring sparse processed beats, pulsing basses and evocative synths and sound effects, Ambient Noises is unsettling, hypnotic and hugely atmospheric.
Ambient Noises contains 286 loops and samples spread over 20 construction kits. The extended loops are 20 to 30 seconds long. The tempo of these kits ranges from 66 up to 96 BPM. Each kit is eight bars long and offers synth- and sub basses, pads, sfx sounds, e-piano loops, ambiences and noises. The drums are split into bassdrums, snaredrums, claps, hihats, electronic percussion and drum fx. A complete drum mix is also available for each kit.
All construction kits contain loops that are not used in the main mix. These add-on sounds were created using analog outboard effects and can be used to create new variations of each kit on the fly.
The soundbank is available to purchase for 49 EUR.
Toontrack has announced the release of the Ambient EZmix Pack, an expansion for the EZmix 2 multi-effect mix tool for Windows and Mac.
The Ambient EZmix Pack features a collection of settings specifically aimed at creating large, reverberant soundscapes. A creative toolbox, perfect for use in atmospheric compositions spanning anything from motion picture scores to modern pop and a wide array of other musical contexts.
It comes complete with ready-made amp/cab simulation settings for guitar and bass, including deep textures of bit crushed reverbs, bouncing delays and tremolos. Also, in addition to its settings tailored for vocals and drums, the Ambient EZmix Pack comes with a selection of signal chains designed to work on any melodic instrument – be it piano, organ, flute or guitar. But of course – any setting can be applied on whatever audio source you may have. A richly saturated guitar preset might just be the perfect fit for your piano. Or a daunting, backward vocal effect may very well be exactly what you wanted for your bass drum. It’s just a matter of picking, choosing and being creative.
Sweeping pads, flanged reverbs, slow, dwindling echoes – this truly is an inspiring set of tools that will add an instant new layer of creativity to any colorful, emotive or artistic expression.
The pack is available to purchase for $49 USD / 39 EUR.
