Detunized has announced Gra.FX2, the second installment of a series of graphic generated sounds for Ableton Live.
This Live Pack delivers a surprising toolbox of 63 instruments for the creation of otherworldly, dissonant textures and drones. The sample pool of the instruments was created by parsing more than 100 bitmaps by a variety of specialized software tools.
Although Gra.FX2 covers an extensive range from SciFi-melodies to LoFi dust-noise patterns each single instrument follows an unified macro control layout. This allows for fast and intuitive interaction with external controllers like Push.
Gra.FX2 is available to purchase as a download for 9 EUR. As a special offer, Gra.FX2 and its predecessor Gra.FX are availabe as a bundle at an introductory price of 12 EUR. This offer is valid for a limited time only.
Detunized has also announced it has finished testing all previous releases with the forthcoming Live 9.
The final release of LIVE 9 will host all Detunized Live Packs without any restrictions. Release numbers DTS001 to DTS046 were installed and tested successfully. Throughout the entire testing routines no drawbacks had been detected.
Soundiron has released version 2.0 of Ambius 1: Transmissions, a uniquely nuanced textural and atmospheric fully playable organic synth and soundscape collection for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Ambius 1 Transmissions features a hand-sculpted array of dark atmospheres, drones, pads and tonal sustains crafted from various real-world field recordings and acoustic instruments.
Ambius 1 Transmissions includes 352 long, evolving sound-scapes, deep pads, hypnotic drones and atmospheres and clocks in at nearly 2.8GB, but its freely mixable instrument design and shaping controls give you nearly infinite sonic possibility with just the twist of a few knobs.
The new upgrade builds on adaptive groove-building and inspiring tone and texture shaping features we engineered for our new Ambius 2 Systematik library.
Ambius 1 Transmissions costs $89 USD. Until February 12th, 2013, it has an introductory price of $69 USD. The update is free to existing Ambius 1 owners.
Stephen Wey of Fingermarks has introduced Drone Machines, a soundset for the Aalto virtual modular software synthesizer by Madrona Labs.
This bank of 85 presets for MadronaLabs Buchla inspired Aalto synthesiser is comprised largely of self generating sounds that drift and evolve slowly (somewhat like Metaphysical Function but synthesised, not based on samples).
These are not typical “bread and butter” sounds but mostly subtle sounds that invite quiet contemplation or that create droning, shifting, walls of soundscape. Most can just be left to run, others can also be played using the keys and will interact with the player. There are also a few pads and bell-like sounds as well. Several sounds also have more than one variation.
The soundset is available at a “pay-what-you-like” price, with a minimum of $5 USD.
Antonio Blanca has introduced Dron-e, a free drone ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor.
Dron-e is a Reaktor Instrument specialised in creating ambient, generative, abstract and cinematic soundscapes and drones. Dron-e contains flexible parameters and controls for creating everything from delicate atmospheres to complex walls of sound.
Included is a custom created sound bank of acoustic and synthetic instrument and field recordings designed specially for Dron-e, but you can load your own and venture into unknown sonic territories.
In addition to the pre-established modulators and controls, it’s possible to use your own modulators built in Reaktor such as sequencers or break-point envelopes using the EXT option, as well as MIDI/OSC signals to further shape your sounds.
