Logic Pro X Themes releases EXS12 for Logic

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Apr 22, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Logic Pro X Themes has released EXS12, an EMU SP12 emulation for the EXS24 sampler in Logic Pro.

Logic Pro X Themes EXS12

EXS-12 is a collaboration of an EXS24 GUI replacement in the EMU SP12 style – plus a set of presets which emulate the SP12.

The presets are carefully modelled and matched from samples using a combination of Logic plugins and the free Airwindows Density2 for the important saturation.

Logic Match EQ is an important component in capturing the frequency spectrum.

The theme is available for purchase for 10 EUR.

MPC-Samples releases SP Neptune multisampled analogue synth sounds

Canedrive presents SP Neptune

MPC-Samples has announced SP Neptune, a collection of multi-sampled synth sounds programmed, recorded and edited by UK producer and musician Canedrive.

MPC-Samples.com is very proud to announce the release of ‘SP Neptune’, a stunning collection of multisampled sounds generated primarily from the Spectral Audio Neptune 2 analogue synth, with an accompanying library of sounds resampled and recorded through the Emu SP-12 and the Akai 4000DS vintage tape machine for some of the richest sounding synth samples you’re ever likely to hear.

SP-Neptune is a sublime combination of fat, powerful analogue synth sounds and the grit, warmth and crunch of classic vintage gear.

SP Neptune features

  • Bass – two powerful synth bass sounds covering 3 octaves per program (6 notes per octave)
  • Strings – a lush string multisample program, sampled over 7 octaves using 4 notes per octave.
  • Lead sounds – Five rich lead sounds with each program covering 5 octaves with 4 notes per octave (5 further variants with different LFO & filter settings are included for the MPC4000/5000/Ren/Studio).
  • Drum Kit – a fat, ballsy and unashamedly grimy kit featuring 32 electronic, acoustic and layered drum sounds (kicks, snares, claps, hats and percussion) all thoroughly seeped in 12 bit goodness.
  • Sound Library – 115 original tones, wacky modulations, filter sweeps and other various short synth sounds, created using a Juno analogue synth, Akai MFC42 filter, Alesis Andromeda and resampled through the Emu SP12.
  • All 345 sounds are provided in 24 bit /48kHz and 16bit /44.1kHz WAV format.
  • Includes native MPC programs compatible with MPC Renaissance/Studio/1000/2500/5000/4000/500 and JJOS which map the multisampled instruments chromatically across your MPC pads.

The sample pack costs £17.99 GBP.

Short links for January 15th, 2011

Some interesting things I found recently:

# The Father of Drum Machines and the Father of MIDI Talk About Design and the Tempest

Dave Smith and Roger Linn (image by CDM)

Peter Kirn talks to the people responsible for one of the most exciting things over at the Winter NAMM show, the Tempest drum machine – Roger Linn and Dave Smith.

In songwriting, there was Rodgers and Hart, Gilbert and Sullivan. In music gear design, it’s hard not to assign a similar degree of expectation to the pairing of Dave Smith and Roger Linn.

Between them, these two designers have been a major part of what music technology is today. Dave Smith pioneered MIDI (even giving it its acronym), the first microprocessor-based instrument (the Prophet-5), the first programmable polyphonic synth, and other innovations at Sequential Circuits. Add to that landmarks in physical modeling research (at Yamaha) and the first PC soft synth. Roger Linn built the first programmable sampled-sound drum machine and with the LM-1, LinnDrum, Linn 9000, and his work on the MPC60 and MPC3000, introduced workflows and ideas in drum machines we now take for granted. It’s not easy to overstate the contributions of either designer.

# Zimoun : Sound Sculptures & Installations

This is Compilation Video V2.2 (updated January 2011) of sound sculptures and installations by Swiss artist Zimoun. I can watch this for hours.

Zimoun's sound sculptures and installations are graceful, mechanized works of playful poetry, their structural simplicity opens like an industrial bloom to reveal a complex and intricate series of relationships, an ongoing interplay between the «artificial» and the «organic».

He is interested in the artistic research of simple and elegant systems to generate and study complex behaviours in sound and motion. He creates sound pieces from basic components, often using multiples of the same prepared mechanical elements to examine the creation and degeneration of patterns.

More on Zimoun here.

Mini-review: Goldbaby Productions MPC60 Vol 3

Goldbaby MPC60 Vol 3

Goldbaby Productions just released the third and final volume of its MPC60 series of sample libraries.

MPC60 Vol 3 features over 1,000 sounds sampled on a vintage Akai MPC-60 sampler.

This is the last in the MPC60 series of sample packs. It includes: Layered Drums, Vinyl Drums, Various Drum Machines, FX and even some synth sounds…. all sampled on the MPC60. Then captured as 24 bit wav files. These are some seriously solid samples dripping with the 60′s legendary sonic character.

Taking a look at the sound sources for volume 3 of the MPC60 series you may notice some familiar names like the Oberheim DMX, Emu Drumulator, Roland CR-78, MFB522, Vermona DRM and Linn LM-1 drum machines. It looks like Goldbaby went crate digging in his own sample collection!

The 1,053 wav samples are categorized in various folders for easy browsing. Besides the drum machine samples there is also a folder with layered drums. This is one of those tricks most hip hop producers will know about. Layering a drum hit will give you a fatter, bigger drum sound.

A “Vinyl” folder features even more drum samples, sampled from vinyl. I can’t tell you how these were done exactly but I know a lot of work went into creating them — think vintage equipment, tape, additional processing like the UBK Fatso, etc. — and it shows. These samples sound so good it’s ridiculous.

Production ready sounds aplenty, great authentic vibe. Although MPC60 Vol 3 features mostly drum sounds there are also some nice synth and effects samples.

Bass, blips and fx from a Yamaha CS-10, tons of processed vinyl effects, sweepy sounds from the Gakken SX-150, some crazy weird vox, various hits and stabs, and more, more, and even more!

MPC60 Vol 3 also comes with some kit patches in various formats (Battery 3, ReFill, iDrum, Guru) for instant satisfaction.

So what do I think?

Product: MPC60 Vol 3 by Goldbaby Productions
Format: 24bit/44KHz wav (+ Battery 3, Guru, iDrum, Refill)
Price: $24 USD (all formats included)

I wasn’t planning on doing another Goldbaby review for a while because I’m running out of things to say about these fantastic sample libraries. So here’s the bottom line: Goldbaby delivers, time after time.

MPC60 Vol 3 is a wonderful collection of high quality lo-fi (?!) samples. They sound absolutely outstanding and will do great in any production that needs to have that vintage sound. Hip Hop producers will love these.
