Capsun ProAudio releases Textures – Dust, Dirt & Crackle Vol. 1

Capsun ProAudio has launched Textures – Dust, Dirt & Crackle Vol. 1, a sample pack featuring a collection of original loops and single sounds, purpose built, designed and found to inspire emotive production and evoke memories of distant locations and forgotten nights.

Capsun ProAudio Textures

Musical inspiration construction sets should arouse the senses and broken beat loops, sampling classic drum machines and run through warm vintage gear can spread dust and dirt through your production in just the right amount. Rhythmic crackle beds can be added with a stunning selection of record loops from every source conceivable. Warm things up with rusty cassette noise loops or cool it down with tempo synced mechanical and twisted machine noise.

Deep and evolving sound beds we’ve called Wash will provoke flashes of 80s sci-fi whilst holding one foot firmly in the production styles of Future Beats, Textured Garage & House and Classic Hip-Hop. 70 all new Drum One Shots are included, ranging from dusty old machines, the buzz of inspired mistakes and the deep thud of over-saturation.

Influence has been drawn from experimental electronic artists such as Burial, Flying Lotus, Clams Casino, Four Tet, Cyril Hahn, Ta-Ku, Actress, Zomby and also pioneering musicians and composers such as Brian Eno, Trent Reznor, Phil Spector and John Carpenter. This makes this expansive collection ideal for downtempo electronica, turned down rap, chill trap, classic hip-hop, future garage, chillwave, ambient house and techno, atmospheric DnB and future beats.

The sample pack is available for purchase for £19.95 GBP.

Sonic Charge updates Synplant to v1.2 (incl. 64-bit) + CRAPRE for Reason

Sonic Charge Synplant

Sonic Charge has released version 1.2 of Synplant, a synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

We decided that we could not not let you wait any longer for 64-bit compatibility so we took a lot of the new code from Synplant 2.0 and “merged” it back into 1.0.

Version 1.2 looks, sounds and behaves virtually identical to 1.0, although under the hood it uses our latest framework and libraries.

Apart from 64-bit compatibility and general performance improvements that come the new libraries, Synplant 1.2 also supports Authenticator for simpler registration.

Synplant for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for $99 USD (+ VAT).

Sonic Charge also announced Cassette Recorder Audio Processor (CRAPRE), a Rack Extension effect for Propellerhead Reason.

Cassette Recorder Audio Processor

In other news, yesterday (April 1st) saw the launch of a new Rack Extension for Reason that I co-developed with PEFF and Bitplant. It is a Cassette Recorder Audio Processor Rack Extension (CRAPRE for short) and it makes such dirty noises you will need protective gloves to handle it.

A lot of people thought it was an April Fools joke and that it was not for real, but it is, which in itself is an even better joke I guess. It is only available for sale during April after which it will be removed from the Propellerhead Shop (again for real!). Don’t miss out on it!

Crapre costs 7.50 EUR.
