Wave Alchemy releases Digital Revolution SE Demo for Kontakt

Wave Alchemy Digital Revolution

Wave Alchemy has announced the release of Digital Revolution SE Demo, a free ‘slimmed down’ version of its forthcoming Digital Revolution instrument library for Kontakt.

Users of Kontakt 5 are able to demo a small amount of what is possible with our soon to be released Digital Revolution instrument for Kontakt Player…

Powered by ‘Revolution Engine’ technology, our Digital Revolution SE demo and forthcoming Digital Revolution virtual instrument puts vintage digital drum sounds from the 1980′s at your fingertips…

We have faithfully captured the unique sound of 9 iconic digital drum machines (and 3 analogue ones!) spanning from 1980 to 1989, including all sample variations of the original drum machines, tune, decay and various other settings. Each drum sound has also been re-sampled multiple times through an iconic ‘grey’ 12-bit sampler to allow for real-time re-sample/grit modes which can easily be selected from the instrument interface.

Digital Revolution SE Demo is now available to download to registered Wave Alchemy users (registration is free).

Dark Side of the Tune releases Volca Beast II

Dark Side of the Tune Volca Beast II

Dark Side of the Tune has released Volca Beast II, a free sound library featuring the sound of Korg’s Volca Beats analog drum machine with expanded sonic capabilities.

The Volca Beats was put through boutique sound processing to create even more depth and range. From quick thumpy sounds for techno and like genres, to beefy Hip-Hop style rhythms, Volca Beast can easily fit into most productions.

Samples labeled with a lower-case letter after them are multi-samples. This gives you the choice of randomizing each hit so you keep some of the analog integrity.

All sounds are offered in 16 and 24 bit resolution, 44.1kHz wave files.

The sample pack is a free download at the Dark Side of the Tune SoundCloud page.
