Loopmasters releases Utku S presents French Electro House

Loopmasters Utku S presents French Electro House

Loopmasters has released Utku S presents French Electro House, a sample library by rising star Utku S.

This massive collection which features nearly 2GB of raw and previously unheard material is a must for experimental producers looking for cutting edge sounds and samples to infuse into their musical productions. These pristine 24Bit samples are based around the 122 – 130 Bpm mark but can equally be used in new forms of Drum & Bass, Cinematic and Downtempo styles alongside House & Electro.

Think Daft Punk Riffs and Filter sweeps, Mount Kimbie Cinematics, Mode Selektor Glitches, Lazer Sword Synths and Four Tet beats, and you will start to get a picture of what this collection is all about. Utku S utilizes inspiration from the past to create a forward thinking sound palette that is very much about the sound of now and the smaller acts that are ascending from the underground in dance music circles right now.

Utku S presents French Electro House features

  • 1.9GB content, including 580 24-bit Loops and 170 One Shot samples.
  • 67 ready to play Bass, Synth, FX and Drum Patches for Reason NNXT, Halion, Kontakt, EXS and SFZ compatible Soft samplers.
  • Apple Loops, Reason Refill and Ableton Live specific versions are also available separately.

Utku S presents French Electro House is available to purchase for £39.95 GBP.

Here’s a little master bus effect rack for Live 8 that I put together. This is the one used in the APC40 video. Thanks to Ableton user joesapo, I used some of his effect racks as components in this one.

Fade to Red uses Live 8’s new modes for the delays, for some nice dubby delay, similar to an Electro-Harmonix Memory Man.

After the success I had with my homebrew tonearm, I decided to build a turntable that is able to fathom the sonic delicacies that the tonearm is able to produce.

Those who visit my sites regularly already know that I am a sucker for natural tone. Therefore the turntable is made to large parts out of wood. Wooden base, wooden motor base, wooden turntable-platter, wooden tonearm. Some ideas make this turntable easy and cheap to build. Depending on your local price for wood, and your ability to find some surplus parts, total cost can be as low as $50,-

Rhythm Ring by Brian Yung & Hanson Jiang

# Rhythm Ring: Interactive Rhythm Sequencer – The Rhythm Ring interactive rhythm sequencer is an engaging musical device that enables the user to create a plethora of rhythms and beat patterns with the touch of their own fingers.

Besides being fun to play with, the Rhythm Ring provides a tangible method of arranging a musical rhythm. In our design, the user can arrange beats and modify them in real time by moving steel ball bearings between holes—a physical representation of notes on a musical staff. The Rhythm Ring continuously loops up to three tracks, each with its own voice. A central ring of LEDs provide the user with live feedback for current "playhead" position, and bright LEDs pulse when a note is played due to a detected bearing. The three tracks allow the playback of three different percussion sounds: snare, hi-hat, and bass drum.

The Rhythm Ring is the ECE 476 Final Project by Brian Yung (bmy5) & Hanson Jiang (hcj4).

# Randy George Music – Randy George is a classical thereminist. The theremin, invented in 1919 by Russian physicist, Lev Sergeyevich Termen, is an electronic musical instrument, played entirely without physical contact. Randy aims to share the theremin with the world and restore its reputation as a serious musical instrument.

Randy is also part of this Daft Punk – Something About Us – Daft Loop Love performance.

Ableton Live looped cover of Something About Us by Daft Punk, performed on Nintendo DS Ubisoft Jam Sessions, Midi controlled software electric bass, drums, synth, vocoded vocals, and solo theremin, recorded in a single pass, with a single camera.
