Fairly Confusing Waveforms releases Cracklebot & Cracklebot Red for Kontakt

Fairly Confusing Waveforms has released Cracklebot, a free vinyl noise machine for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Fairly Confusing Waveforms Cracklebot

Cracklebot is automated drum machine based on vinyl noise samples. I sampled worn and dirty, empty grooves from my vinyl collection. Lead-ins, lead-outs, silent parts in between tracks, those have been chopped to 115 short slices or pops, crackles, scratches and noises.

Cracklebot is sequencing them into tempo synchronized, noise grooves. The machine can create new, random patterns on a single click, so it’s quite fun play with.

Also available is Cracklebot Red, a modified version:

  • uses 4 convolution units instead of 2, replaced the delays, this needs considerably powerful CPU.
  • reverb mixdown knob now controls return of all 4 units, delay mix knob is replaced with dry signal level knob, so now you can listen to just wet output of all reverbs.
  • there are now 12 layers/tracks per groove instead of 9.
  • there are small adjustments in groove generation constraints, larger possible sequences, different possible sequence speeds, etc.

Both Cracklebot instrument libraries are available for download at no charge. Requires full version of Kontakt 4.2 or higher.

Rhythmic Robot releases free PanaRhythm for Kontakt + 33% off sale

Rhythmic Robot has announced the release of PanaRhythm, a free snare drum instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Rhythmic Robot PanaRhythm

PanaRhythm is sampled from a tiny analogue Panasonic drum machine we found at a car boot sale. Its kick and hats are so-so, but the snare really pops and has a great, up-front analogue sound. We’ve spread it over a whole octave to give it some pitch variation so it can blend into a lot of different mixes.

A bit of saturation and compression are built right in. We really like this sound: rope in your kick of choice and you’re good to go!

Rhythmic Robot has also launched a limited time sale, offering 33% off all its sample libraries.

Just use the coupon code

MONGOMADNESS

when you check out, and watch a third of the cost fall off the lot.

The sale ends February 28th, 2015.
