Soniccouture has announced the release of Geosonics, a virtual instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt and Kontakt Player.
Imagine sitting down at your MIDI keyboard on a rainy tuesday and playing the sound of the North Pole. Or the Kalahari Desert. Or the atmospheric virations of the Australian Outback.

Camel Audio has announced the release of Biolabs: Dark Space, a sound library for Alchemy and the Free Alchemy Player.
Biolabs: Dark Space is a nightmare blend of science fiction and horror that is both fascinating yet strangely chilling. Featuring an extensive collection of moody and twisted soundscapes, tortured machines, a host of distressed hits, scrapes and evolving impacts, possessed basses, freaky effects and disembodied voices, each of its 75 presets is a mini-world of possibilities fuelled by fiendishly clever programming.
With over 1 GB of newly sampled material spanning warped alien artefacts to liquid terrors, dark space is by turns organic and machine-like – a wicked confection to bend your music in strange new ways. Biomechanoid is a respected sound designer, well known for his original Biolabs: Alchemy Labs
collection, and his Absynth presets. He has also designed sounds for various games and Hollywood movies.
All presets have been carefully designed with Polyphonic Aftertouch for even greater expression. The forthcoming update to the Alchemy Mobile App transmits Polyphonic Aftertouch opening up a new world of expressive sound control. Imagine being able to sweep through each sample of a chord, or tweak the filter of each held note with your fingertips.
Biolabs: Dark Space is available to purchase for $35 USD / 29 EUR / £25 GBP (Alchemy Player included).
Camel Audio has announced the release of Guitar Mutations, a new sound library for Alchemy and Alchemy Player.

Guitar Mutations takes full advantage of the Alchemy Player engine with 2GB of new samples. There’s haunting fingerpicking, quirky strumming and plaintive harmonics through to aggressive shredding and all manner of unconventional playing techniques. Guitar Mutations is perfect for creating ambient guitarscapes or adding an innovative edge to your rock and electronica productions.

Suitable for a wide range of genres from dubstep to techno, Electronic Bass also introduces over fifty new sampled bass sounds, and has been carefully sorted in to folder categories so you can quickly find the most suitable candidate for your project. Electronic Bass was created by our talented team of sound designers from around the globe.
