Homegrown Sounds releases Kosmology – Analog for Kontakt

Homegrown Sounds has announced the release of Kosmology – Analog, a new sound library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Homegrown Sounds Kosmology - Analog

The sound of the Elektron Analog Four has entered the world of Kosmology. Even though the instruments are more on the experimental side compared to the previous Kosmology Releases, the end result is a quite surprisingly mellow sample set, filled with lots of movement and discovery when sequencing. These Instruments were designed specifically for use with Kosmology to bring some of the warmth and characteristics from the excellent sounding Analog Synthesizer which has it’s own very distinct character.

All 200 instruments are multi-sampled, using 4 samples per instrument at 24-bit using pure synthesis with very few effects. Whilst many sounds are chromatically useful, there are also plenty of FX instruments throughout the collection to add some nice surprises and interests whilst Wave Sequencing. Although Kosmology is not really about presets considering how easy and fun it is to make your own, there are Fifty Presets included and of course presets from other Kosmology Releases can also be opened.

The library is available for the introductory price of $40 USD until May 18th, 2014 (regular $65 USD).

Elektron announces Overbridge for Analog Four, Analog Keys, and Analog Rytm

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Mar 12, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Swedish music machine maker Elektron announces the forthcoming Overbridge implementation for Analog Four, Analog Keys, and Analog Rytm.

Elektron Overbridge

This breakthrough technology completely erases the line between analog hardware and software plug-in instruments.

For the first time in history, seamless DAW integration of analog synthesizers and drum machines is a reality.

Overbridge features

  • Full VST/AU control — Thanks to Overbridge, the Analog range of Elektron machines can be deeply integrated with PC and Mac computers. The customized and machine specific software plugins, available in VST and AU formats, give direct parameter access over USB and allows efficient DAW based sound editing and sequencing. Overbridge merges the functionality of software plug-ins with the unmatched sound of analog hardware.
  • Bi-directional USB audio streaming — Overbridge makes multi tracking easy. Connect a USB cable and record multiple Elektron machine voices to separate DAW tracks in 24 bit quality. Or send audio from a DAW, process it with the analog circuitry of the Elektron machines and bring back the results to a new DAW track all over a single USB cable and without timing issues. Overbridge even allows the Analog range of machines to be used as multi-channel USB sound cards.
  • Total recall — Management of analog sounds and sequences has never been easier. Any adjustments made either directly on the Elektron hardware or via the software plug-in can be automatically recalled when loading a DAW project. Overbridge offers ultimate convenience when handling Elektron machine data.

Overbridge will be a part of a free OS update expected to be released Q4 2014. The OS update will work on all Analog Four, Analog Keys, and Analog Rytm units in existence.
