- The SFZ/WAV version is 603 MB and contains 25 multi-sampled stereo sounds. There are also 25 nki files for Kontakt V2 and up to make it easier to load the sounds in Kontakt.

Elxsound has announced that the ACE Animated and ACE Motion soundsets for u-he’s virtual modular synthesizer ACE — previously sold at DNR Collabrotive, are now available to download free of charge.
Both ACE Animated and ACE Motion were projects that I worked on with Reason Lahalla, who passed in January. After long consideration, makings these works available to all for free is one of the ways I’d like to pay my respects to someone I worked tirelessly with.
At a later date I’ll update the page with either a DropBox link to Soundcloud, or a user group to showcase any music created with these soundsets (for those who would to share their creations).
The soundsets are available to download at Elxsound and the ACE patch library.

DNR Collaborative has unveiled DesignDesk, a unique system which allows users to build workspaces out of a variety of design, document and development tools, as well as collect, edit and package all of your required files all in one place.
DesignDesk is a complete project repository, design toolkit and collaborative platform for just about anyone. The concept is simple – choose your tools, gather your files, edit and package your project into a neatly organized file system or database.
DesignDesk would be particularly useful to just about any type of multimedia designer who commonly creates and releases commercial products such as icon library designers or soundware developers. Even students and teachers could use it to research and gather information for projects or exams. With the ability for 3rd-party developers to create their own tools, DesignDesk becomes an extendable, flexible design platform and project creation system.
DNR have also launched a new crowdfunding campaign to raise the rest of the funds to get DesignDesk to market, and have decided to run the campaign independently instead of through a crowdfunding website such as Kickstarter, relying solely on the audio and media communities alone. A lot of effort went into preparing the documentation, graphics and other media that you can see on the DNR website, which will present a clear and concise explaination of what DesignDesk is, what is would be good for, and who it would be useful to.
Please share DesignDesk – we’re relying on our customers, friends and allies to spread the word!
DNR Collaborative is targeting a $5,000 USD pledge goal for DesignDesk, to be funded before May 15th, 2013.
