Sunsine Audio has announced the release of STIX 305, the first in a series of “converted” Beatmaker 2 and Nanostudio versions of Waveshaper drum kits and samples.
The SoundMaster Stix 305 is a very rare analogue drum machine from the early eighties. You get both the cheesy, mellow sound of the psychedelic 70s, plus the acid hats of the 80s !
This WaveShaper sample pack is a quite unique occasion to meet this very little known and lovely beat box. Your tracks will get a great retro sound, whether you are an electronic funk producer, and acid freak or a true analogue sound lover.
The Stix305 was recorded using some tube preamp and compressor and a vintage eq on top of it to keep the analogue vibe on the full recording chain. As the Stix305 features few sounds, I recorded them at various compression, gain and eq settings and made several takes of each sound in order to get some subtle variations that your round-robin soft sampler will love for sure! There are also a dozen of loops plus a more punchy kit, processed using some strong tube distortion.
STIX 305 for iOS features
43 One Hit Samples.
3 Kits (Clean, Alt, Distorted).
3 .bmkz files for Beatmaker 2 .

The converted STIX 305 pack for iOS (Nanostudio and Beatmaker 2) is available to purchase for $2.90 USD. The original wav sample pack is available from Waveshaper.
Soniccouture has announced the release of Konkrete 3, a unique sample based drum & percussion instrument for all kinds of electronic music.
Konkrete is the latest evolution of a product line that dates back to the early days of Soniccouture. Conceived as a collection of drum kits which would offer new drum and percussion sounds, Konkrete 1 (2006) was very successful and its sounds went on to become well-loved by its users. Konkrete 2 followed in 2007, and was equally popular.
Now a sophisticated new Kontakt instrument has been created, and 41 new kits. A huge range of audio experimentation has gone into their creation : Sledgehammers, Buchla synths, childrens playgrounds, broken soviet drum machines, chinese zithers, circuit bent samplers and a 9ft grand piano, to name a few.
Konkrete 3 features
A powerful sample-based drum synth for all kinds of electronic music.
A creative beat generator – The Beat Shifter.
An incredible sonic arsenal – 90 kits | over 5000 sounds.
Huge sonic range – acoustic recordings to analogue hits.
A massive range of custom convolution effects.
Real time glitch module.
Focus Mapping maps single sounds across full keyrange.
NI Maschine presets.
Konkrete 3 is available to purchase for £99 GBP / 99 EUR / $129 USD.
Loopmasters has introduced Dope808, a sample pack by FatLoud.
We’re happy to present you Dope808. Is it another stock 808 library? Yes and no, but mostly… no. Sure, it is inspired by modern 808 sound and yes, it has all those big & tuned in key kicks, crispy snares & hihats, wide cymbals, snappy toms, cowbells, congas & other misc samples achieved by torture of our tape machines – but it’s not a big allround library of stock sounds. In fact, we think that this little library is a perfect companion for all your 808 and non-808 samples. It’ll defenitely bring some ‘fresh air’ to your drum patterns.
Completely royalty free material to use within your commercial compositions.
354 drum samples divided in to 9 categories: kick, snare, clap, misc, hats, cymbal, tom kicks, toms & congas.
4 formats: 16 bit WAV, 24 bit WAV, 24 bit AIFF, Maschine (tagged wav files, no kits).
100% compatibility with all modern software & hardware samplers.
The Tuned Analogue Drums sample pack offers a jawdropping collection of exquisitely produced drum samples containing 33 multi-sample sets of tuned drums ranging from low kicks and Taiko samples to snares and white noise hits. Each sample is provided as 2 octaves of multisamples for a total of 792 samples ready to load into your sampler or sampling drum machine. Pick one note for each drum, or use the full range.
This massive pack was designed using a large array of classic analogue synthesisers and has been processed and sonically enhanced using a carefully chosen mastering chain to retain the warmth, shape, and character.
Tuned Analogue Drums Volume 1 is a must have collection for anyone wanting to expand their drum hit library with authentic analogue drum samples. This product is suitable for use in any genre of electronic music and would be an excellent addition to any producer’s arsenal.
All samples are 24bit .wav files compatible with all DAW’s and samplers.
