To DX With Love + Casino Soundsets for iOS Synthesizers released

Sunsine Audio To DX With Love & Casino

Sunsine Audio has released two new soundsets: To DX With Love for DXi and Casino for the Cassini synth for iOS.

Sunsine Audio’s love letter to the glorious world of 80s FM. 64 presets for the DXi iOS synthesizer, utilizing every feature of the instrument. From bright, bell-like, and cutting to dark, fuzzy and rich, these presets emphasize everything desirable about FM.

One of our favorite new synths for the iOS, Cassini is very powerful and sounds great but unfortunately doesn’t come loaded with a good deal of sounds. Casino is our response – 59 high quality presets showcasing this synths strengths, namely its ability for deep, rich evolving sounds and extensive, dynamic modulation. Thick basses, ethereal pads, glitchy “arp-chord” chiptune, vintage replications – we even threw in a oldschool gunshot!

The soundsets are available to purchase for $2.49 USD each.

Monster Sounds releases Drumstep & Mutant Bass V1 by Kanji Kinetic

Monster Sounds Drumstep & Mutant Bass V1 by Kanji Kinetic

Monster Sounds has released Drumstep & Mutant Bass V1, a sample library by Kanji Kinetic.

Kanji Kinetic is a guy who has managed to sculpt his own take on the 140bpm mash up game. His first foray into the world of bass and beats came back in 2008 when his debut release was put out by Rag & Bone Records. This saw him grab the attention of Drop The Lime Starkey, Taz Buckfaster, Tayo, Mary Anne Hobbs, B Rich, Chrissy Murderbot, Akira Kiteshi, Reso and DZ with its fresh, energetic mix of bassline, techno, dubstep and chiptune influences.

Continuing to evolve his sound with a wide range of releases and remixes, Kanji’s brutal remix of 16Bit’s dubstep anti-anthem ‘Chainsaw Calligraphy’ brought a new wave of fans into the mutant bass sound along with further remixes for Figure, Roisin Murphy, Mustard Pimp & Alec Empire, Kid606, Rico Tubbs, Si Begg, Drop The Lime, Acid Jacks, Jeuce, Egyptrixx, Mikix The Cat, Temper D and Blackmass Plastics!!! Not a bad portfolio for such a young guy with such a focused vision.

Kanji Kinetic began experimenting with different tempos and genres, most notably drumstep with 2010′s ‘New Era’ EP, while remaining in high demand for live shows all over the globe. In January 2011 he started Mutant Bass Records to bring attention to both established and upcoming artists making this fresh hybrid dance music.

Drumstep & Mutant Bass V1 features

  • 580 MB content, includes 534 samples (24-bit).
  • 250 Loops between 140 – 175 Bpm, plus 284 One Shot Samples.
