Multiples E|Drums Mini Vol1

Multiples E|Drums Mini Vol 1

Multiples has released E|Drums Mini Vol1, a free drum sample pack.

Recently, I have been pulling together resources to create E|Drums XL which will be the culmination of the E|Drums series so far.

In doing so, I came across a plugin called the Dirty Panda Drumbox (pictured below) by CFA Sound which was given away free by Computer Music Magazine.

This is one of the first plugin’s of its type that I have used to create authentic Analogue drum machine sound and found it to be a real joy to use. Therefore, I thought I would wet your appetite for the E|Drums XL release by releasing a sampler of the sounds achievable by using this plugin.

E|Drums Mini Vol1 features

  • 70 seperate sound in total covering Kick Drums, Lo and Hi Toms with FM percussion
  • Formats: .Wav, Battery, Reason ReFill.
  • ReFill includes 2 Kong patches and 3 NNXT patches, plus a a Combinator that links a ReDrum sequencer to Kong allowing you to write sequenced drum patches.
  • Battery version includes 2 patches (Raw & EMU SP1200 emulation).

E|Drums Mini Vol1 is a free download from Multiples.

Computer Music magazine Facebook competition #5: Win a C-Thru Music AXiS-49

Computer Music has teamed up with C-Thru Music to give away two AXiS-49 MIDI controllers, each worth £420 GBP.

C-Thru Music AXiS-49

In cm144, we awarded the AXiS-49 a 9/10 review score along with our Innovation and Performance awards.

The AXiS-49 is a velocity-sensitive MIDI keyboard. It uses the Harmonic Table key layout, whereby the keys are arranged in a harmonically logical way. Chord and scale shapes are the same in any musical key, so you only have to learn them once. It’s a breeze to play complex-sounding “jazzy” chords, play triads with a single finger and even span several octaves’ worth of notes with just one hand. The AXiS-49 is also great for playing drum parts!

The competition is available from Facebook – ‘like’ Computer Music on Facebook to get the entry form link. The competition deadline is 20 May 2011.

Computer Music magazine launches Facebook competitions, win XILS Lab synths and Photosounder

Computer Music Facebook Contests

Computer Music magazine has announced two Facebook competitions, offering a chance to win XILS Lab synths and Photosounder, the image-based audio editor/synthesiser for PC and Mac.

Computer Music magazine has teamed up with soft synth wizards XILS-lab ( to offer four great prizes. Two winners will each receive their choice of either PolyKB II (€149) or XILS 3 (€149), and two runners-up can pick between PolyKB Player (€25) and XILS 3 LE (€30).

PolyKB II is one of the finest analogue synth emulations in existence – in CM154′s review, we slapped it with a Performance award and a 9/10 rating.

XILS 3 offers a semimodular design based on the classic EMS VCS3 synth. CM143′s review saw it garner a 9/10 score and a Performance award.

Computer Music magazine is also offering a chance to win one of 10 copies of Photosounder.

Photosounder works by converting sound into an image, for direct editing in a visual manner, offering up numerous editing options that you simply won’t find anywhere else. It’s a lot more fun, intuitive and easy to use than you might expect, so don’t write it off as a high-brow tool that’s only for tech-heads!

The entry forms for both competitions are available to those who ‘like’ Computer Music on Facebook. The XILS Lab competition deadline is 8 April 2011, the Photosounder one ends 15 April 2011.
