Sunsine Audio intros Waveshaper Plasticid MkII for iOS

Sunsine Audio Plasticid MkII

Sunsine Audio has announced it has converted Waveshaper’s Plasticid MkII sample library for use with iOS.

The Boss DR-110 is a cute little drum machine from the early 80s, the last analogue one made by Roland. 
The overall sound is very reminiscent to the much praised TR-808 and TR-606. The DR-110 will give you that classic, sought-after sound but with some slight difference and much character. 

Plasticid MkII takes this sample pack one step further, with 120 new samples gathered in 18 kits. This new version aims at coloration and expands the sonic palette of the DR-110, processing it using vintage hardware to shape it up nicely. The cymbals are spitting, the bassdrum is kicking, and the snare and claps tones ranging from dark to bright make each kit acting like a rebirth for the mighty DR-110! Great care has been taken about recording a semi open hat sample for even more expression.

Converted and exclusively available for iOS use (Nanostudio and Beatmaker 2) from Sunsine Audio.

Plasticid MkII for iOS features

  • 120 One Hit Samples.
  • 18 Kits.
  • 18 .bmkz files for Beatmaker 2.
  • 18 .trg files for Nanostudio.
  • Easy Installation Instructions.

Plasticid MkII for iOS is available to purchase for $3.40 USD. The original Wav edition is available from Waveshaper.

Sunsine Audio releases STIX 305 for Beatmaker 2 & Nanostudio

Sunsine Audio STIX 305

Sunsine Audio has announced the release of STIX 305, the first in a series of “converted” Beatmaker 2 and Nanostudio versions of Waveshaper drum kits and samples.

The SoundMaster Stix 305 is a very rare analogue drum machine from the early eighties. You get both the cheesy, mellow sound of the psychedelic 70s, plus the acid hats of the 80s !

This WaveShaper sample pack is a quite unique occasion to meet this very little known and lovely beat box. Your tracks will get a great retro sound, whether you are an electronic funk producer, and acid freak or a true analogue sound lover.

The Stix305 was recorded using some tube preamp and compressor and a vintage eq on top of it to keep the analogue vibe on the full recording chain. As the Stix305 features few sounds, I recorded them at various compression, gain and eq settings and made several takes of each sound in order to get some subtle variations that your round-robin soft sampler will love for sure! There are also a dozen of loops plus a more punchy kit, processed using some strong tube distortion.

STIX 305 for iOS features

  • 43 One Hit Samples.
  • 3 Kits (Clean, Alt, Distorted).
  • 3 .bmkz files for Beatmaker 2 .
  • 3 .trg files for Nanostudio.
  • 13 Bonus loops in .wav format.
  • Easy Installation Instructions.
  • Note: Requires Beatmaker 2 or Nanostudio, not included.

The converted STIX 305 pack for iOS (Nanostudio and Beatmaker 2) is available to purchase for $2.90 USD. The original wav sample pack is available from Waveshaper.
