Elektron releases Caught on Tape: 808+909 for Octatrack

Elektron Caught on Tape: 808+909

Elektron has announced the release of Caught on Tape: 808+909, a drum machine sample library for the Octatrack.

Classics never go out of style. The Roland TR-808 and TR-909 are legendary drum machines, cherished and praised for their sound and percussive abilities. Goldbaby has pulled out all the stops and carefully recorded these revered machines using an Ampex 351 1/2″ valve 2 track tape machine. The result is warm, round and beautifully saturated analog sounds – perfect sample material for the Octatrack.

The sound pack is specifically made for the Octatrack. Included is an Octatrack set featuring 1 project, 16 patterns and 4 parts. Also included are 16 scenes per part, providing a great starting point for experimenting with the demo patterns.

The sound library costs 30 EUR.

Goldbaby Tape909 now available for Maschine & Geist

Goldbaby Tape909

Goldbaby has announced that its Tape909 drum machine sample library is now available in Maschine and Geist formats.

The Tape808 has been very well received so we decided to give the TR909 some tape love!… This is 1446 samples taken from a mint 909 recorded into an Ampex 351 1/2″ valve 2 track tape machine! That’s not all… We also put the 909 through other vintage gear. Plus we recorded it naked into a Metric Halo ULN-2 firewire audio card. Then we chose the best samples.

All 24 bit, and all solid 909 goodness! If you can’t get a hold of a real 909 then this is as close as you can get in samples… Maybe even better than the having the real thing!

The sample pack costs $29 USD. The download now includes Maschine, Battery, ReFill, Geist, Guru, iDrum and Wav formats.

Universal Audio announces new UAD-2 hardware and UAD Powered Plug-In software bundles

Universal Audio has announced a complete re-imagination of the popular UAD Powered Plug-Ins platform.

Highlighted by the new flagship UAD-2 OCTO DSP Accelerator card, featuring eight SHARC processors, the UAD-2 Series offers new Custom and Ultimate software bundles and more affordable pricing for all UAD-2 SOLO, DUO, and QUAD DSP Accelerator models.

UAD-2 OCTO Ultimate
Universal Audio UAD-2 OCTO Ultimate bundle.
  • New OCTO DSP Accelerators — Heavyweight Processing Power
    The new top-of-the-line UAD-2 OCTO DSP Accelerator ($1,499US) features eight SHARC processors on a single PCIe card and easily installs into a PCIe-equipped Mac or PC workstation or compatible expansion chassis — giving music producers and engineers twice the processing power of its UAD-2 QUAD DSP Accelerator counterpart. For UAD power users running large audio sessions with high UAD plug-in instances and/or high sample rates, the UAD-2 OCTO DSP Accelerator is the uncompromising professional solution.
  • New UAD-2 “Custom” Bundles — Pick Any 3 UAD Plug-Ins
    For just $400US more than a UAD-2 DUO, QUAD, or OCTO “Core” DSP Accelerator model, UAD users can now step up to UAD-2 Custom bundles, selecting any three individual UAD plug-ins within 45 days of their new UAD-2 hardware registration. With a world-renowned UAD plug-in library that includes Ampex®, Manley®, Lexicon®, Studer®, EMT®, Empirical Labs®, Neve®, SSL®, Roland®, and more, UAD-2 Custom bundles deliver a potential software value of more than $1,000US (depending on UAD plug-ins selected), at significant savings to new UAD-2 users.
  • New UAD-2 “Ultimate” Bundles — The Definitive Collection
    Combining the most powerful UAD-2 DSP Accelerator hardware with the most complete UAD plug-in bundle available, the new UAD-2 OCTO Ultimate (PCIe card format) and UAD-2 Satellite QUAD Ultimate (FireWire format) packages offer an extensive library of more than 55 UA-developed plug-ins, up to and including UAD Software v6.3*. These UAD-2 Ultimate packages represent the definitive collection of more than 10 years of UAD plug-in development.
  • More Affordable UAD-2 SOLO, DUO, and QUAD Core Models
    Alongside the new UAD-2 hardware and software introductions, UA is debuting new, more affordable pricing for the “Core” models of UAD-2 SOLO, DUO, and QUAD PCIe hardware and UAD-2 DUO and QUAD Satellite FireWire hardware. All UAD-2 Core models include the popular “Analog Classics” plug-in bundle, featuring the LA-2A Classic Audio Leveler, 1176LN/1176SE Classic Limiting Amplifiers, Pultec EQP-1A, and RealVerb Pro plug-ins. Additional UAD plug-ins can be purchased from UA’s Online Store.

“We’re excited by the additional power and flexibility that this new UAD-2 lineup provides,” says CEO and Founder, Bill Putnam, Jr. “Not only has the processing power doubled with the UAD-2 OCTO model, but it’s now easier for users to customize their UAD-2 packages right out of the box. And with our new aggressive pricing for SOLO, DUO, and QUAD Core models, UAD-2 is now even more accessible to producers who want to add authentic analog tone in their recordings.

Estimated US Street Prices for UAD-2 Desktop (PCI-Express) and Satellite (FireWire) DSP Accelerators:

  • UAD-2 OCTO (PCIe): $1,499 (Core) / $1,899 (Custom) / $5,499 (Ultimate).
  • UAD-2 QUAD (PCIe): $999 (Core) / $1,399 (Custom).
  • UAD-2 DUO (PCIe): $699 (Core) / $1,099 (Custom).
  • UAD-2 SOLO (PCIe): $299 (Core).
  • UAD-2 QUAD Satellite (FireWire): $999 (Core) / $1,399 (Custom) / $4,999 (Ultimate).
  • UAD-2 DUO Satellite (FireWire): $699 (Core) / $1,099 (Custom).
