Zero-G releases Nu Disco & Whoosh Designer sample libraries

Zero-G Nu Disco

Zero-G has released Nu Disco, a new sample pack featuring authentic retro disco and club sounds but with a modern feel.

“With Nu Disco you can pay homage to the golden ego of dance as well as taking a step in to the future to create this years unmistakable sound”.

Nu Disco contains 35 construction kits with loads of additional chord progressions, drumloops, bass riffs, guitar licks and single hits. It is full of authentic retro disco and club sounds but with a modern feel and with the subtle tang of those 80’s guitar licks, smooth rhodes, sizzling synths, funky basslines and a mixture of live drums for the funk and disco and also some stomping house beats.

The concept behind the construction kits is to allow you to filter and mash up the full mix as if you were sampling from vinyl but also, to give you complete flexibility, each full mix is split down into its component parts to allow you to work with individual instrument loops as well.

The sample pack is available for purchase as a download for $79.99 (ex. VAT), or as a boxed DVD for £59.95 GBP (incl. VAT)/$79.99 GBP (no VAT)/74.95 EUR (incl. VAT).

Zero-G has also launched Whoosh Designer, a Kontakt 5 instrument library by Dan Graham, who also produced Impact Designer, Animato, Spiritoso, Luminoso and Perpetuo.

Zero-G Whoosh Designer

Whoosh Designer makes the best whoosh noises you will ever hear! Whooshes are short noise sounds that give an instant rush of movement, excitement, anticipation and release. Placed around an impact sound they add massive size and power. Placed under a drum fill they add an almighty rush and a powerful transition from one section to another.

Whooshes have the power to transform all sound and music into a higher dimension of drama and animation. Sound design, trailer music, epic music, film scores, EDM, hip-hop, indie, rock; whatever you are doing, adding whooshes will make your sound more exciting.

Whoosh Designer is a Kontakt Instrument that combines amazing raw sounds, incredible simplicity, a high degree of playability and a very high level of customisation. Every Whoosh is made up of 3 elements – ATTACK, PEAK and DECAY. These 3 elements are the initial attack, the intense peak of the whoosh and the long release of the sound. This Whoosh Designer instrument quickly crossfades between 3 different sounds in order to produce sonic complexity and a very wide range of possible variations.

Whoosh Designer features

  • 740MB of sounds on DVD (or download).
  • 768 samples (.ncw files) in total.
  • 165 Kontakt 5 Instruments with custom Graphic Interface.
  • Many millions of possible variations to create unique sonic impacts.

Whoosh Desinger is available for purchase for download for $99.99 (ex. VAT), or as a boxed DVD for £69.95 GBP (incl. VAT)/$99.99 USD (no VAT)/94.95 EUR (incl. VAT). Requires full version of Kontakt version 5.3.1 or above.

Time+Space introduces Impact Designer by Zero-G

Time+Space has announced Impact Designer, a virtual instrument library that allows you to create your own epic SFX.

Zero-G Impact Designer

Zero-G have once again joined forces with Dan Graham (Animato, Spiritoso, Luminso, Perpetuo) to release ‘Impact Designer’.

Create your own unique hits, bangs, epic slams, booms, whacks and more with this brand new collection for Kontakt which, thanks to a high level of customisation options, gives you over 15 million possible variations!

Under the hood there are 3 dynamic velocity layers and 3 round robins for each sound so it all stays nicely organic-sounding without a machine-gun effect of repeat sample-triggering.

Every Impact is made up of 3 elements – HIT, BOOM and DECAY. Respectively, these 3 elements are the attack, the body of the hit and the long release. The Impact Designer instrument quickly crossfades between the 3 different sounds in order to produce sonic complexity and a very wide range of possible variations. There is also a Pre-Hit function which is a reverse sound that can give your Impact an impressive thwack.
Of course, there are times when you simply need epic sounds in an instant, so why not take your pick from the collection of 90 presets – some of which were created by The Unfinished’s Matt Bowdler.

The library is available for the introductory price of £54.95 GBP until Friday 11th June (regular £69.95 GBP).

Time+Space intros Perpetuo – Live Flute Phrases by Zero-G

Zero-G Pepetuo Live Flute Phrases

Time+Space has announced the release of Perpetuo – Live Flute Phrases, a new Zero-G library

Following the success of Animato, Spiritoso and Luminoso, Dan Graham has joined forces again with Zero-G to produce the next library in the series ‘Perpetuo – Live Flute Phrases‘.

Performed by a world-class flute and piccolo player from the Liverpool Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and recorded in Liverpool’s famous Parr Street studios, Perpetuo is an 8Gb collection of thousands of live recorded looped phrases designed for use with Kontakt v5.2.

Despite the sixty-two Kontakt instruments being made from pre-recorded phrases, Perpetuo remains highly controllable and flexible. This has been achieved by recording the same patterns across a wide pitch and dynamic range with many scale variations, by choosing patterns that blend in well to a wide variety of musical styles, and then by allowing you to automatically sync to the tempo of your projects with a wide variety of rhythm and scale types all controlled with key switches.

Dynamic levels pp to ff can be smoothly crossfaded by mod wheel, the ensemble size can be cleverly zoomed from solo to three players, and two mic positions (close and room) can be chosen or blended.

Perpetuo gives you the advantages of fluidity and realism of recorded patterns and phrases and yet also many of the advantages of the flexibility of a standard orchestral library.

The Perputuo library is available to purchase from Time+Space for RRP £79.95 GBP / 94.95 EUR / $119 USD.
