Soniccouture Scriptorium Unlocked: Free Kontakt scripts

Soniccouture has released Last Note Aftertouch Pitch Bend, the first in a series of free KSP scripts for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Soniccouture Scriptorium Unlocked

The KSP hardcore and Kontakt tweakers out there will know our Scriptorium product well; a collection of tools, effects, and creative ideas for Kontakts script processor.

Since that time we have never stopped working with KSP, of course – all our instruments rely heavily on scripts to give them their function as well as their character. Aside from the instrument specific scripts used for our products, there is also Dan’s private collection of ideas & experiments – the ‘inner sanctum’ of the Scriptorium.

So, starting today, we will release a new script from the inner sanctum every few weeks via our new blog. Free.

We want to stimulate your inner sound designer; to encourage discussion and experimentation – every Scriptorium post will be an open forum (via Disqus) for further suggestions, tips and ideas, which Dan will respond to as much as he can.

The KSP scripts are available to download free of charge. The original Scriptorium collection now has a reduced price of €29 EUR / $39 USD.

Voxengo releases Shinechilla effect plugin

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Apr 15, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Voxengo has announced the release of Shinechilla, an experimental creative sound effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Shinechilla allows you to generate and blend 2nd, 3rd and 4th harmonics with the original dry sound. The harmonic generation process offered by Shinechilla is quite unique on the plug-in market since it produces almost no intermodulation distortion.

Shinechilla is mainly usable for solo instrument processing where it literally “shines” by producing convincing and full-bodied harmonic coloration. Shinechilla is also unique in that it is able to add harmonic coloration on top of the sound instead of distorting the whole sound. However, the option to saturate the whole sound is also available.

The strength of harmonic coloration added by Shinechilla can be flexibly adjusted over the whole frequency range, for each harmonic. In overall, Shinechilla is a great tool for contemporary electronic music producers looking for impressive timbres.

Shinechilla adds an exceptional shine and bite to your sounds.

Shinechilla features

Diego Stocco’s Duet for Leaves & Turntable

Diego Stocco posted Duet for Leaves & Turntable, another brilliant demonstration of the beauty of music made with everyday objects.

Recently I bought a turntable to use it for an experiment, but that didn’t turn out as I was expecting. Then, I noticed the equally spaced ridges on the plate and got an idea for something else.

For about an hour I recorded short musical phrases by rubbing leaves against the turntable (the type of leaf, angle, pressure and fold determined the sound), then I combined the different takes together. Every element comes from those recordings, including the bass, kick and snare sounds (shaped with EQ, compression and resonators).

Loopmasters releases Felix’s Machines – Robot Percussion

Felix's Machines Robot Percussion

Loopmasters has launched Felix’s Machines – Robot Percussion, a sample library by Felix Thorn.

Felix’s Machines were initially conceived in an experiment aiming to facilitate live music by transforming sound into a three-dimensional visual show. As an ongoing project, the music-performing machines built by Felix do not intend to match human potential. Instead they exist to test the advantages of mechanical instruments alone.

Robot Percussion features mesmerising performances of hand built music monsters triggering a range of real drums, bells, chimes, motors and discarded objects controlled by a computer brain creating complex rhythms and intricate soundscapes.

Robot Percussion features

  • 71 live percussion loops, 301 virtual & manipulated loops.
  • 9 bass drum hits, 9 snare hits, 13 cymbal hits, 35 glockelspiel sounds, 133 percussion hits, 7 synth hits.
  • 176 MIDI files.
  • 376 REX2 files.
  • 53 soft sampler patches for NNXT, Halion, SFZ, EXS24 and Kontakt.

The sample library costs £29.95 GBP. The loops and single-shot sample & sampler patches are available separately priced at £16.95 GBP each.
