Les Productions Zvon releases Memory Collection Pack 02

Les Productions Zvon Memory Collection Pack 02

Les Productions Zvon has released Memory Collection Pack 02, a sample library featuring public domain samples.

The samples in this collection are taken from Public Domain video documents: 36 TV ads, 7 feature movies, 19 documentaries and 6 short films. Many of the documentaries are from and about the early days of radio and television.

It’s named Memory Collection because by definition works in the Public Domain are from the past, a past often not very distant but sadly also often forgotten or ignored. This collection brings back some of the sounds from the past.

The Memory Collection sample pack 02 has 3,313 (1.32 GB) including voice/spoken word/dialogs, sfx/foley, and music.

Memory Collection Pack 02 is available to purchase as donationware (minimum $17.50 USD). A free preview (101 samples) can be downloaded from the product page.

Oscar D’vine releases D’vine Sounds Vacuum Vol. 1

Oscar D’vine has released D’vine Sounds Vacuum Vol. 1, a soundset for Digidesign’s Vacuum monophonic vacuum tube synthesizer instrument.

Digidesign Vacuum

Vacuum is a great software syntheziser that is included for free in Pro Tools 8, 9 and 10! (I’ve heard reports about it working great in v7 as well though!)

So what can Vacuum achive? Well, funky leads, heavy basses, nice arp’s, cool and original effects and some funky weird stuff.

If you’re looking for some funk in your next Pop, House, Dubstep, R&B or Hiphop-track, look no further.

With this soundset you’ll get 110 new great sounding basses, leads, Arp’s and FX, made from the ground up! Mostly basses and leads though (Sorry FX-lovers!)

The inspirations for the sounds are mostly funk like Bootsy Collins, Funkadelic and Stevie Wonder. But also some modern dance and hiphop like Benny Benassi, David Guetta, Dr. Dre, Timbaland and so on. You get the picture.

To really get the most out of these patches, set up a couple of AUX:es and send the Vacuum signal to some Reverb, Chorus, Delay, Distortion, Filter, Ensemble and/or any other of the A.I.R. effects (See picture!). Then you will really hear a beast come to life. Massive, Sylenth1 and Vanguard, watch out!

D’vine Sounds Vacuum Vol. 1 is available as donationware (minimum donation of $1 USD).

Les Productions Zvon turns IYTTIW donationware

Les Productions Zvon

Les Productions Zvon has announced the IYTTIW sample library is now available as donationware.

IYTTIW stands for “If You Think This Is Weird”. It is a very unique set based on original trumpet samples. Its diminutive size packs a big sound. Perfect on its own or for doubling other sounds. 551 samples for a small size of 15.7 MB.

I played and recorded some trumpet and made samples from the performance. Then I processed the samples to alter their timbral and spectral quality. In some of them you can still hear the trumpet and in others you could not guess their origin.

What really makes these sounds unique is the fact that even when they do sound synthesized, they retain the pitch modulations of the original trumpet performance which would be impossible to reproduce with a standard synthesizer.

The IYTTIW sample library is now available as donationware in the following formats: wav, sfz (41 instruments), Native Instruments Kontakt 3.5 or higher, Wusikstation 5.8 or higher (sfz + 90 presets).
