Fairly Confusing Waveforms releases Psychodrumma drum instrument for Kontakt

Fairly Confusing Waveforms has announced Psychodrumma, a free sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Fairly Confusing Waveforms Psychodrumma
The Psychodrumma is a “machine for blinking lights and making noise”.

Psychodrumma is nonsensical drum machine for NI Kontakt 4, focused on creating random and randomly evolving rhythmic patterns. It is experimental sound device and although it could be used as a regular drum machine, it would be probably impractical.

It is build of nine modules, called pads, each can playback a sound from one of two banks of 100 samples each, each has separate sound control rack and its own simple sequencer. All sequencers are synchronized with host tempo, but can run at different relative speeds and their start points can be de-synchronized, so to say.

The fun feature of Psychodrumma is, that it can play by itself, all of pad’s settings can be randomized on user input, gradually or periodically. You can just tune settings, let it play and observe evolving waves of randomness.

The virtual instrument library for Kontakt includes 200 wav files (24bit/44kHz), and is available to download at no charge.

Hello Samples releases Raw Series Vol 2: JMX09

Hello Samples JMX09

Hello Samples has launched JMX09, the second release in the Raw Series of sample packs.

After the warm reception of our first installment in the analog percussion world (the acclaimed RAW Series Vol.1) we decided to make a library built on the same honorable principles -realism, dynamics and usability- but with a more aggressive and punchy sound that complemented the organic, creamy and percussive nature of the previous collection. Of all the drum machines in our arsenal we felt that the 09 was the box that best represented this idea, and thus our next victim was chosen!

The 09 is a 909 inspired drum machine with a twist. The great thing about it it’s that, although you can use it to emulate a convincing 909, it can also go WAY beyond it’s limits. The bass drum and snare circuits have much wider range and the sound is a bit more modern and over-the-top. It’s like a 909 on steroids! This is specially nice since you can end up with something that sounds “familiar” yet not dated like the overused original 909. A clever way of sounding different.

JMX09 features

  • 2,300+ painstakingly handcut samples (about 200 different sounds x 7 round robin hits + more than 300 single one-shots), organized by type and descriptively labelled.
  • A minimum of 4 Round Robin samples of each sound for added realism, most hits have 7 or more Round Robin samples.
  • 40 ready to use Machine kits.
  • 20 ready to use MPC kits (1000/2500).
  • 298 ready to use Ableton Live kits including:
    • 23 Drum Rack Kits.
    • 18 Impulse Kits.
    • 250 individual Sampler patches (Round Robin).
    • 7 groups Sampler patches.
  • 6 Kontakt patches including automatic Round Robin management.

The sample library is available to purchase for 10 EUR. A free demo pack can be downloaded from the product page.
