Ivory Bunker releases free sample packs

Ivory Bunker has announced 4 new free sample packs.

I’ve opened up the Ivory Bunker Samplepacks page a couple of months ago with the idea of sharing some of the sounds I’ve recorded or created over the last couple of years. I may have used some of those already and/or might in the future, but a lot of them are probably doomed to gather binary dust.

Trusting that there are plenty creative people out there who can make good use of some sounds that go beyond the scope of most commercially (including the freebies coming with magazines) packs and libraries, I decided to start out with a focus on my collection of recordings of my DIY- and Circuit Bent Instruments and the like, as well as the occasional field recordings.

Humanworkshop releases Foley Bass free Kontakt synthesizer

Humanworkshop Foley Bass

Humanworkshop has announced Foley Bass, a free virtual synthesizer instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

I do one to one tutoring with artists and sound designers via my website. And after the great contribution by Nolan, aka Frequent, a student asked me about using foley in kontakt to create heavy bass sounds. So that’s exactly what we did. With the foley sounds in the pack from Nolan we created a set of patches and I later added a background and selected some parameters for the UI. Coincidentally Nolan has been doing lessons with me also, small world.

Besides the recordings of Nolan I used KSP scripting and built in FX. By adding FX chains in kontakt we can add harmonics. By using the scripting language to detune and set it in a nice legato mode we can end up with lovely sustained bass notes.

Foley Bass is a free download. The original recordings by Frequent are also available to download here.
