Drumdrops has announced that it has updated all the Multi-Velocity packs of its drum sample libraries.
We have been busy updating our Multi-Velocity packs and now all of these packs have been updated on our site to the latest versions. First up we have updated the EXS24 patches. There is now a new Logic X patch for EXS24 which utilises some of the Logic X features.
Secondly we have added over 500 MIDI Loops to the packs covering a variety of genres (it is the same loops in each pack and from time to time we will update them).
Finally we have just added patches for the excellent free TX16Wx sampler. These patches have been built by Suleiman Ali. This sampler is a free piece of software that the developer has been building for a while. It is an excellent alternative to the many paid samplers out there. The developer is extremely responsive and worked with Suleiman to make sure our patches work well.
For everyone who has already purchased a Multi-Velocity pack from us just head over to your account and download the latest version which will have all the latest updates. The All Samples Packs have also been updated with the latest version.
If you have not purchased a Multi-Velocity pack from us before or want to try out another kit then there is no better time than now. The packs come with up to 16 velocities of each articulation and include 11 different patches for most of the main samplers out there. Now they also come with over 500 MIDI loops. At £ 15.00 a pack you can’t get better than that. Although today for a limited period, we are offering a 20% discount on any of the Multi-Velocity kits. Just use the voucher code MV20 at checkout.

CWI Technology has released version 2.2.0 of the TX16Wx sampler instrument plug-in.
Finally, after many months of work, TX16Wx 2.2.0 is now released, adding long-awaited support for MacOSX. This release took longer than anticipated, mainly because I upped my ambitions somewhat, thus this is not simply a port, but a full rewrite of the underlying framework supporting the plug-in.
TX16Wx is now running on a new cross-platform and plug-in format toolkit, with much of its insides now in shared libraries. This of course in anticipation of the new plug-ins that CWITEC will build and release during the rest of the year.
The MacOSX plug-in is available as a 32/64 bit AUi universal binary and a 64-bit VSTi. The user interface requires a Cocoa capable host.
Changes in TX16Wx v2.2.0
- Added Apple OSX support.
- Added Audio unit version.
- Added polyphony limit.
- Added matrix row/column distribute command.
- Added skinning support.
- Fixed issue with effects being shared between copied performances.
- Fixed automation load/save issue.
- Improved matrix editor snapping.
The TX16Wx sampler instrument is available as freeware. A Professional version costs 89 EUR (full) / 29 EUR (non-commercial).
