Industrial Strength releases 6Blocc Dirty Alley Drumstep for Kontakt

6Blocc Dirty Alley Drumstep Grid Machine

Industrial Strength Records has launched a Channel Robot Grid Machine version of 6Blocc Dirty Alley Drumstep Breaks & FX, a high-octane set of bass-busting samples to send your Drumstep, Dubstep, DnB, and Hybrid Hardcore productions flying.

This special breakaway edition was made with the Channel Robot crew, so you can directly sample more than 300 loops in NI Kontakt’s Robot Grid Machine//Slice Version 1.

Brace yourself and warn the neighbors*. The secret’s out. 6Blocc is bringing his legendary thunder to your DAW, so get your speakers and samplers ready for ferocious breaks, ear-bending bass to rumble for several city blocks. Did we mention the bass?!

This pack was designed for the innovative Robot Grid Machine//Slice Version 1 for NI Kontakt, a potent virtual beat slicer that truly harnesses the mighty 6Blocc sound. Use the Slice Grid Machine interface to twist these 4-bar loops, glitch, cut, reverse, stutter, and effect these sounds to the utmost musical insanity. Mash multiple patterns together and warp these samples into completely original creations.

These sounds were designed with the 6Blocc chops that twisted Dubstep remixes of Fugees, Dr. Dre, Method Man & Redman, and Bone Thugz n Harmony. 6Blocc has been heard collaborating with Cypress Hill producer DJ Muggs and San Fran’s Bassnectar. On top of running his 6DUB label, his recent releases can be caught on Foul Play, Ultra, Terminal Dusk, Moonshine, Mad Decent, and Lo Dubs. This man’s music never relents!

The sample library costs £19.95 GBP. Requires full retail version of Kontakt 5.

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Aug 08, 2013 - comment 2 comments

Oscillicious has announced the release of version 1.4 of BeatCleaver, a major update to the beat slicer for Windows and Mac. New features include a state-of-the-art audio editing engine, automatic tempo detection, and slice-to-MIDI functionality.

Oscillicious BeatCleaver

BeatCleaver is a sampling audio editor for chopping beats, recordings, and songs. An intuitive design and fluid interface create a fast, frustration-free workflow for sampling and editing audio. With time-stretching and drag export just one click away, BeatCleaver makes music sampling easier than ever before.

The groundbreaking new RapidEdit™ audio engine takes an innovative new approach to audio editing for a more fluid editing experience. BeatCleaver can now apply and layer edits and effects with instant, tweakable results visualized by the waveform. The days of waiting for rendering and repeatedly undoing effects just to get them right are over – Even fades and normalization can be adjusted in real-time. Combined with the existing slicing and time-stretching capabilities of BeatCleaver, musicians now have a better tool than ever before for remixing drum loops and sampling music.

BeatCleaver 1.4 also introduces automatic tempo detection combined with an integrated time-stretching toolbar for quicker pitch and time adjustments. Musicians can also now export slice timing to a MIDI file as notes (groove extraction) and reconstruct beats later in a DAW.

Changes in BeatCleaver v1.4

  • Audio Editing, using a new state-of-the-art engine for real-time audio editing and effects (watch the video).
  • Automatic tempo (BPM) detection.
  • Easier time-stretching controls.
  • Slice-to-MIDI functionality.

BeatCleaver is available to purchase for $79 USD / 59 EUR / £54 GBP.
