Cluster Sound releases Tech House Bass Loops for Maschine

Cluster Sound Tech House Bass Loops

Cluster Sound has announced Tech House Bass Loops, an expansion sound library for Maschine by Native Instruments.

Tech House Bass Loops is a Maschine expansion library, a massive collection of pre-sliced bass loops specifically designed for Tech House productions.

The library is a fine selection of 170+ puncy basslines that can be easily imported in your live set or used as the basis of your next compositions and remixes. Tech House Bass Loops is far to be a collection of static loops. Each bass can be modified by altering the MIDI structure and by using the 8 macro controls that allow to manage the built-in FX chain.

Tech House Bass Loops features

  • 173 pre-sliced Bass Loops (Maschine Loops / Wav).
  • Built-in Multi FX Chains: Each bassline group is equipped with a built-in FX chain (Exciter -> Filter -> Chorus -> String) coupled with two additional Aux effects (Reverb – Delay). This particular design allows to use a Multi FX chain without having to dedicate it to one of the 8 precious tracks of your Maschine and to save your FX settings together with the loop.
  • Dedicated Macro Controls: In order to guarantee an immediate sound manipulation, the main FX parameters have been assigned to the 8 macro controls of each bass group, easily accessible via hardware controller. Here you will be able to manage the frequency and the amount of the (EQ) exciter, the filter cutoff and resonance as well as the amount of the insert (Chorus and Spring) and aux effects (Dark Room and Mid Delay).

Tech House Bass Loops is available to purchase for 24.95 EUR.

Cluster Sound releases Wave Bass-A for Ableton

Cluster Sound has released Wave Bass-A, the first wavetable synth collection for Ableton Live.

Cluster Sound Wave Bass-A

Wave Bass-A is a massive collection of 100 bass synthesizers and 100 Live Clips based on 128 pristine analog wavetables. Thanks to the multi-selectable oscillators and to the masterly use of all Live sampling features, Wave Bass-A generates amazing simulations of vintage bass synths characterized by incredible low-end and definition.

Wave Bass-A features

  • The Sound Engine: Wave Bass-A doesn’t make use of pre-recorded samples. Each sound is generated by a small 18 Kbyte file, a genuine analog wavetable (single cycle waveform) with a table size of 2048 samples. These atoms of sound, thanks to the amazing interpolation quality of Live and to the skilful use all the Sampler/Simpler features, allow to reproduce the warmth and the nuance of old analog synthesizers.
  • Wave Selector: This feature allows to select the wavetable oscillator on-the-fly simply by moving the “Wave Selector” knob. This knob scans through the 128 wavetables included in each Instrument and allows to radically change the sounds without dragging new patches nor loosing the patch settings. Most of the included Instruments implement two selectable oscillators, making it possible to radically increase the possible sound combinations. The built-in wavetables been extracted from 7 glorious vintage synthesizers:
    • 001-018 — Oscar Synthesizer
    • 019-035 — Moog Sonic Six
    • 036-058 — Moog Minimoog
    • 059-078 — Korg MS20
    • 079-094 — Korg DW8000 (Dco-Vcf)
    • 095-109 — Yamaha CS-80
    • 110-128 — Oberheim Matrix 1000
  • Content: The 100 Bass Instruments are organized into 4 categories (Double – Octave – Pitcher – Splitter) characterized by specific Macro Controls designed for dynamic tweaking while performing. All the instruments implement a parallel Sub-harmonic channel and share a special “Stereo Dynamo” FX Module that allows to increase the warmth and the spatial image of the sounds.

Wave Bass-A for Ableton is available to purchase for 29.95 EUR.

Cluster Sound releases SST-282 Convo impulse response library

Cluster Sound has launched SST-282 Convo, an IR Library that accurately reproduce the staggering sound of the vintage SST-282 Space Station.

Cluster Sound SST-282 Convo

In 1979 a small company called Ursa major introduced a highly sophisticated audio signal processing unit called SST-282 Space Station. The SST-282 was described as a “reverberation effect” but that is far from the complete story. Thanks to its design based on multi-tap delay modulation it was able to generate a wide variety of reverb, echo and comb filter effects. The SST-282 implemented 16 “Audition Delay Programs” (Rooms, Combs, Delay Clusters and Space Repeats) which decide the principal characteristics of the reverb / delay effect.

SST-282 Convo is based on 224 IR samples, obtained by sampling the 16 “Audition Programs” with 14 different delay/reverb decay times. The library works perfectly on vocals, synths, basses and guitars but also on drums and percussions and can be easily used with all the convolution reverb plugins on the market.

SST-282 Convo features

  • Size : 440 Mb.
  • WAV 32bit / 96Khz.
  • 224 IR Samples.
  • 16 Audition Programs.
  • 14 Decay Time settings.
  • 224 Kontakt Presets.

SST-282 Convo is available to purchase for 29.95 EUR.
