Alex Matheu Glitchbreaks

Alex Matheu has released version 1.02 of Glitchbreaks a music app for iOS designed to “glitch” and manipulate beats to create and record new beats.

Glitchbreaks is an iOS Universal manipulation tool for “Glitching” breakbeats. Glitchbreaks uses four audio channels setup like mute groups. You can quickly switch between them to construct new beats, or manipulate loop points to “Cut” or “Glitch” the breaks.

Changes in Glitchbreaks v1.02

  • Bug Fixes in the File Loader.
  • Glitch Pad – Made it more dynamic, now it glitches where the waveform is, and moving your finger changes the index.
  • Loop Modulation – Now it locks into the loop start, instead of letting the waveform play to catch up, also if you set loop start to the very end it will not cross over anymore.
  • An option to turn off Loop Modulation latching was also added.
  • Index Tracking – now when you Glitch, Cut, Loop Mod, or Reverse it remembers where you started, and when you are done, it drops you to where the sample would have played to on it’s own, making it so these functions do not take the sample off time.
  • Now supports Background Audio and mixing with other apps.

Glitchbreaks is available to purchase for $4.99 USD.

SampleScience updates Original Breakbeat Pack Vol.1 free sample pack

SampleScience has updated the Original Breakbeat Pack Vol.1 sample pack, including new sounds and formats.

SampleScience Original Breakbeat Pack Vol.1

Original Breakbeat Pack Vol.1 was originaly released in october 2008 to promote my first album called PlastikDisc. The pack has been updated, some sounds were removed & other were added to make it a solid 50 samples pack.

The samples were made with various software drum synthesizers, hardware drum machines, grooveboxes & self recorded acoustic sounds all layered, mangled, twisted & processed to make those original breakbeats.

Each loop has it’s own sound signature, there’s no variation of the same loop provided, you’ll have to do this yourself. The idea behind this sample pack is to give you royalty-free samples that you can use as if it was lifted from vinyls. So the content isn’t always clean, vinyl & tape noises was added to give those sound more texture & guts! Don’t hesitate to chop, remix & re-arrange the loops & sounds to your taste. It is by no mean a string the dots construction kit type of library. It is meant to be sampled & chop in a creative way!

Soundiron releases Breaker sample library

Soundiron has announced the release of Breaker, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Breaker is all about the breakbeat, DIY. This hi-fi/lo-fi old/new school bastard was born to be broken, bruised, smashed, pumped, slammed, smeared, blown-out and beat to hell. We set out to find the essence of classic versus iconoclastic. We set out to build a big, fat and extremely diverse drum palette that evoked an equal blend of warm, smooth 70′s funk and cold, hard 80s electro and pop. Our aim was to make a drum library that is truly electro-organic: electronic in sound but organically playable.

The sound is ripe to be chopped, diced, sliced, flipped, trashed, drilled, derezzed, degraded and granulated. It’s geared toward electro, soul, funk, pop, breakcore, drum n’ bass, garage, dub, techno, glitch, 2-step, trip op, illbient, dub-step, house, and whatever the hell have you. We designed the sound to take digital, tape and tube distortion and FX of all kinds and soak it all right up.
