DNR Collaborative has released version 2.5 of Sylenth Signature, a soundset for the Sylenth1 software synthesizer by LennarDigital.
The primary purpose of this update was to redesign a majority of the sounds that had trouble sitting within a mix with minimal effort, but also includes 41 brand new sounds and addresses all volume gain issues with the louder presets.
The soundbank now contains a total of 221 presets across 8 categories.
The soundset is available to purchase for $14 USD until 5th July, 2012, after which it will only be available from the DNR Sound Repository (both producer and developer licenses). The update is free for existing users.
The DNR Sound Repository has also been updated, adding the Sylenth Signature soundset, as well as two new packages of seamless “mixed” loops in 90 and 95BPM tempos. These “mixed” loops are a combination of synth, bass and drums sounds and are provided in 44.1k / 16-bit .wav format. Producer and Developer license holders can login and download the new sounds at any time.

DNR Collaborative has announced Wave Designer, a VST instrument plug-in which is aimed at reducing the time required to make single-cycle waveforms.
Wave Designer is an ongoing project which is still in the early stages of development, which is a very unique and useful tool concept that allows users to create waveforms and export them to a number of synthesizer formats in order to be used as oscillators for the particular synthesizer.
The software will be shipped as a plug-in instrument, allowing users to create waveforms visually and then preview the sounds in real-time with their MIDI keyboard.
Wave Designer is available to pre-order for $29 USD until June 30th, 2012. The final price for all others will be $79 USD upon release.
Pre-order customers will receive a receipt for their purchase, an account on the DNR website and access to each beta version upon completion and notifications of when they are available. The first beta version will be available in approximately 10 days (6/21).

DNR Collaborative has announced the official release of the Sound Repository, a massive sound library comprised of DNR’s most popular products over the past year, with a total of 7+ gigabytes currently included.
Instead of offering single products, we have decided to offer up our entire library for one low price. No upgrade fees, no gimmicks, just a big sample repository that gets updated with new content every so often. Download what you need, when you need it.
The newest addition to the repository is Delirium: Atmospheres, which includes 29 long textures and atmospheres in WAV format for a total of 332mb of content. Useful in cinematic soundtracks, ambient music and other styles relying on deep atmospheric sounds. Additional samples, loops and mappings will follow shortly.
We have one version of the library, but two licenses to choose from: producer or developer. The Producer license allows you to use the sounds in any personal or commercial music, but the sounds cannot be re-distributed in any way whatsoever. The Developer license allows for the remixing, redesign and re-distribution of commercial sound libraries without any further licensing or payments of sample usage. In other words: you can use them to make and release your own sound libraries!
Access to the Sound Repository is available for $49/$149 USD (producer/developer license). Current DNR users who own one or more products can log into their account to access discounted upgrade versions of the library for $9/$29 USD (producer/developer license). The discounted versions are no different than the full priced versions of the library.
