Clicksound has released Tempa Complextro Toolkit 1, a Logic Pro template for complextro music production.
This really is a truly awesome slab of Complextro production in a MIDI Construction Template for Logic Pro ready for you to tear up and give it your own hell-raising stamp. Kicking off with an anthemic array of pads and synths, don’t be fooled by the sublime. What goes up…must come down, and after the epic drop in this template, hold on to your internal organs, the bass is here. With a super rawness and grit that will make you feel like you are gnawing on a rough rock with a bloodied, broken tooth, this is heads down time, no looking up and you are initiated into the sound of Tempa and have your chance to tame this beast into your own individual chunk of Complextro.
Utilising the full-throttle power of Logic Pro’s in-built Instruments and Effects, the baselines are made up of a combination of EXS24 samples, ES1 and ES2 custom patches and they are seriously heavy-weight speaker-shakers! EQ has been placed on all of the drums and they are also compressed to give you a crisp, razor sharp, cutting edge sound. Two sidechain kicks are also set up each with unique settings: one for the main section (drums, baselines, synths) and one for the drop (synths, fx etc.) Instructions are given on how to add the sidechain to any new tracks that are created.
The Tempa Complextro Toolkit 1 pack is available from Loopmasters, priced at £14.95 GBP.

Clicksound has launched Big Room MIDI Elements 1, a construction pack by Joe Zay for Ableton Live.
Your heart is going to beat itself out of your chest, breaking ribs’n’all with the punch that this MIDI Construction Template for Ableton Live lands on your auditory senses and your imagination. Taking the emotional and melodic nature of Progressive House and thrashing it with an infectious energy of Electro/Tech House, Joe Zay has created a perfect and masterful demonstration of a Big Room House arrangement structure and that can now become yours with which to run wild.
With massively impressive Ibiza-style climbs and builds, you really hit the floor running right from the start with synapse snapping beats and percussion plus some insidious sporadic trance synth snaps. As this progresses, we get into the world of altered-reality with a truly unique bass that defies gravity and form that stunningly evolves through another sublime long build primed with inhuman energy to throw open the gates of this BIG, Big House. You can actually feel the crowd bouncing with the occasional flicks of sweat with this one; a viscerally real, superb slice of Big House with an Electro tribalism of a deadly simple but epically effective rhythms and chord progressions, all commanded by the Sergeant Major of this template; the kick.

Ohm Force has announced the Ohmicide Dubstep Session Pack, a bundle of the Ohmicide plug-in and dubstep construction templates by partner Clicksound.
All of the construction templates for Ableton Live and Logic Pro within this pack are fully editable Dubstep templates, which allow you to have unrestricted control over any part of the template. You can change the speed, pitch and arrangement of any part such as the drums, basslines or synth leads…what ever suites your mood! They are completely customisable and contain the building blocks for your next Dubstep project. Within each construction template you will be able to see how all of the channels are created, how the sounds are layered and placed in to the arrangement pages and how the included side-chain compression is configured.
The templates also feature Native Instruments Massive and Spectrasonics Omnisphere and just in case you do not have these plug-ins installed each template includes bounced tracks for the third party plug-ins MIDI parts. This simply means that any MIDI parts created using Native Instruments Massive or Spectrasonics Omnisphere have been bounced down to audio tracks within the arrangement page… so you do not need Massive or Omnisphere installed as the bounced audio part will play instead.
The Ohmicide Dubstep Session Pack is available to purchase for 109 EUR. The dubstep templates pack is also available to Ohmicide users for 14 EUR.
Ohm Force has also announced updates to its Mac plug-ins.
Since the release of 64-bit plugins, Mac users have been reporting various issues. Now your favorite VST and AU plugins (work both in 32- and 64-bit applications) are ready to rock again!
Fixes in the update
- Loading a plugin and removing it while its GUI was open would make the host crash.
- When trying to save presets, all folders in the dialog box would be greyed out, and all attempts at choosing another location blocked.
- Contextual menus would appear at the top left of the window, instead of where the right click was done.
- The ctrl/cmd + click modifiers on knobs would not work.
This upgrade is available to download now for registered customers..
