Bronto Scorpio updates Dronebox for Reaktor to v1.2

Related: , , , Posted in news on Nov 20, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Bronto Scorpio has released version 1.2 of the Dronebox ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor, offering a bug fix and adding a few new presets.

The main inspiration for this ensemble were those awesome demos of modular synths you often find on the internet. When watching those videos I’m often thinking “Don’t ever turn a knob again! That’s the best sound ever!” *Guy in the video turns a knob* “Wait! That’s even better! Now definitely never turn a knob again!”. I tried to capture this feeling with this ensemble.

The ensemble is a free download for Reaktor 5.8 or higher.

Point Blank intros free Monster Timestretch device for Ableton Live

Point Blank has announced Monster Timestretch, a free Max for Live device for Ableton Live by Daniel Herbert.

The new Max for Live device from Point Blank is a timestretching plugin based on a technique known as phase vocoding and can time stretch sounds in realtime. It’s similar to the fantastic Paul Stretch and is ideal for creating slowly evolving drone-like textures as well as more futuristic sounds.

There are four different modes which allow you to play through and explore the sound in a variety of ways and literally freeze the sound.

The plugin is limited to processing the first 30 seconds of an audio file and only works within Ableton as a M4L device and will not play in any other DAW. We recommend you use resampling if you need to record the effect to a new audio file.

The plugin is a free download at Point Blank.

Bronto Scorpio Dronebox

Bronto Scorpio Music has released Dronebox, a free ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor.

The main inspiration for this ensemble were those awesome demos of modular synths you often find on the internet.

When watching those videos I’m often thinking “Don’t ever turn a knob again! That’s the best sound ever!” *Guy in the video turns a knob* “Wait! That’s even better! Now definitely never turn a knob again!”. I tried to capture this feeling with this ensemble.

It comes with a bunch of presets, but it’s really meant to be tweeked and explored. The whole thing can be a bit unpredictable, as there is a lot of feedback going on, but that’s part of the fun! Many of the controls are somewhat cryptic, but you’ll eventually get a feeling for each of them.

Dronebox is a free download. Requires full version of Reaktor 5.8 or higher.

Industrial Strength releases Drone sound library

Industrial Strength Drone

Industrial Strength has launched Drone, a sound library featuring a groundbreaking audio collection for music producers and sound designers in need of dark analog sounds, unique harmonic intervals and big droning tones that evolve and resonate.

Drone Includes both audio and Logic Structure and Es2 presets. But it doesn’t end there. This full-size pack contains a selection of drum shots and techie percussion loops that go great with the drones. It is also the perfect source for TV, film and game producers looking for professional sounding license free sounds to dig into.

Utilizing the most sought after analog synths, such as Moog, Roland, Pro-One, and the Analog Solutions Vostok, the sounds in Drone were then run through various feedback loops from assorted pedal chains. Many of these samples were left untreated to retain their natural analog quality. Others were layered with custom top-shelf digital synth sounds and/or treated with state-of-the-art plug-ins and effects to give them extra width and distinct character.

The Drone library is available to purchase for £29.95 GBP.

HISS and a ROAR releases Metal Resonance & Metal Tones sample libraries

HISSandaROAR Metal Resonance

HISS and a ROAR has announced the release of Metal Resonance and Metal Tones, two new sound fx sample libraries.

Metal Resonance includes over 3,000 sounds recorded & delivered in 24 bit/192kHz using 100+ resonant metal props.

The original inspiration for this library originates from a Tom Waits quote: “I’m still looking for the ultimate sound of a real stress metal clang. I wanna hear…. the clang of all clangs!”

So I’ve been collecting props for this library for the last two years – buying old spanners, pipes, wrenches, crow bars, hammers, rods, angle iron, girders… And then obsessively recording them: each of over 100 metal props has been recorded at 192kHz using extended frequency range Sennheiser MKH8040 mics.

Metal Tones includes over 300 24bit/96kHz one minute tones and drones created using the Metal Resonance Library as source material.

Inspired by the extreme range of tonalities captured in the METAL RESONANCE Library I have spectrally immersed myself, generating tones and drones ranging from pure harmonic tones through harsher atonal elements to deep, evocative drones. (Apologies if you are looking for the musical genre of metal – this isn’t it!)

Each of the 308 tones in the library are categorised into perceptual groups (Chordal, Deep, Dense, Mid Frequency, Shrill) and tagged with the prop used as source material.

The sound fx packs cost $99 USD each. A discounted bundle of both is available as well.
