Fingerpushers  Analog Stabs Bright & Dirty

Fingerpushers has announced Analog Stabs – Bright & Dirty, a sample library featuring stab sounds.

Analog Stabs Bright & Dirty is a library built on 100 stab sounds – 30 slow and 70 snappy – with a twist.

Apart from the clean unprocessed stabs, we also used two of our favorite hardware samplers to give the stabs the authentic feel of yesteryear. The samplers we used was the Akai S1100 and the original Ensoniq EPS. The sounds also passed through a quality analog mixing desk for an additional layer of analog goodness.

All in all, Analog Stabs Bright & Dirty contains 300 dry audio files. 100 samples from the Akai, sampled at 44.1 kHz, and 100 samples from the Ensoniq with a lofi sampling rate.

The Analog Stabs – Bright & Dirty pack is available to purchase for 9.90 EUR.

Fingerpushers VZone

Fingerpushers has released VZone, a new sample-based instrument for Kontakt.

VZone sets the focus on one of the coolest digital instruments ever built: the Casio VZ. Compared with Casios highly successful CZ-series, Casio created the VZ – a vastly improved synthesizer using Casios own FM-style architecture: iPD (Interactive Phase Distortion).

VZone is a celebration of all things VZ. First we sampled 24 of our favorite sounds, and to make sure the sounds could be used for more than its original style, we looped each and every sound. If you ever tried to loop an FM-style bass sound, you understand we put in a lot of work capturing the waveforms.

There are three identical oscillators, where each sound has its own volume, envelope, pitch, pan and filter. Creating massive stacks is as simple as blending your favorite sounds together.

VZone comes with 102 presets spanning from bells and pads to basses and leads.

VZone features

  • 323 megabyte sound pool. The oscillators have been sampled in great detail. Even sounds traditionally difficult to loop has been looped.
  • 102 presets.
  • All files in 44.1 kHz, 16 bit WAV format. Requires Kontakt 4 or newer.

The sound library costs 19.90 EUR.

Fingerpushers updates Butch Techno Percussion with free kits for Maschine

Fingerpushers Butch Techno Percussion

Fingerpushers has released new drum kits for its Butch Techno Percussion synthetic percussion library. The update includes five drum kits for Native Instruments Maschine and is free for all previous owners of Butch Techno Percussion.

Butch Techno Percussion is a collection of almost 400 highly processed synthetic drum samples in 16 bit WAV-format.

The original material came from a TR-909 drum machine. The drum samples were loaded into a E-mu E4XT Ultra hardware sampler for some serious time stretching sessions.

A big portion of the sounds were processed and shaped with Fxpansion Geist and re-composed into percussive sounds. Another portion of the sounds were mangled in the Ohmforce Symptohm granular sampler.

Butch Techno Percussion features

  • 394 percussion samples.
  • All samples are in 44.1 kHz, 16 bit WAV format.
  • Five kits for Fxpansion Geist.
  • Five kits for Native Instruments Maschine.

Butch Techno Percussion costs 9.90 EUR.

Fingerpushers Butch Techno Percussion

Fingerpushers has released Butch Techno Percussion, a collection of synthetic percussion sounds for Fxpansion Geist.

Butch Techno Percussion is a collection of five kits for Fxpansion Geist, containing 80 highly processed percussion sounds. Butch Techno Percussion also contains almost 400 percussive samples in WAV-format.

The original material for this collection came from TR-909 drum machine. The drum samples were loaded into a E-mu E4XT Ultra hardware sampler for some serious time stretching processing. The samples were stretched back and forward until they sounded like a nasty hard drive crash from the future.

A big portion of the sounds were processed and shaped with Fxpansion Geist and re-composed into percussive sounds. Another portion of the sounds were mangled in the Ohmforce Symptohm granular sampler.

Lastly, the most interesting sounds were selected to be compiled and processed one last time in Fxpansion Geist.

Butch Techno Percussion features

  • 394 percussion samples.
  • All samples are in 44.1 kHz, 16 bit WAV format (with short file names so they work with Akai MPC).
  • There are five kits for Fxpansion Geist with 80 additional sounds.

The sound library is available to purchase for 9.90 EUR.

Fingerpushers Electro Bass for Kontakt

Related: , , , Posted in news on Oct 04, 2012 - comment 0 comments

Fingerpushers has announced the release of Electro Bass, a new sample-based instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Fingerpushers Electro Bass

Electro Bass is a simple software synthesizer built upon the Kontakt 4 sampler from Native Instruments. It is best described as an innocent flirt with the Electro genre – designed to be an inspiration when working on those big sounding, portamento-ish bass sounds.

Electro Bass is best describes as a one-trick pony. No sweet pads or trance plucks will ever emanate from this instrument. Nothing but of maxed out bass sounds.

The structure is simple. There are two oscillator sections, each with three unique waveforms. Each oscillator has its own lowpass/highpass filter, there is one envelope for the volume plus one envelope for the master filter. There are two effects: delay and a simple saturation effect to give the sound a rougher edge.

For lovers of the pumping sidechain-effect – the pump-knob will come in handy. No routing needed – it’s all done with a complex LFO shape that sounds pretty convincing.

Electro Bass features

  • 169 megabyte sound pool. The oscillators have been sampled in great detail: almost every key with long loops.
  • 90 presets (53 single presets and 37 multi sounds).
  • All files in 44.1 kHz, 16 bit WAV format. Programmed for Kontakt 4.

The sample library is available to purchase for 5.90 EUR.

Fingerpushers Superstructure sound library for Kontakt released

Fingerpushers Superstructure

Fingerpushers has released Superstructure, a new sample-based instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Superstructure is a synthesizer which concentrates on the popular supersaw waveform. There are five different supersaws waveforms carefully recorded from five different synthesizers including the Access Virus TI and Nord Modular G2. The waveforms were selected to cover as much ground as possible, meaning they are not trying to emulate the original supersaw from the Roland JP-8000 synthesizer, but rather make a broad take on supersaw waveforms that are popular in modern productions.

Apart from the supersaw oscillators there is a suboscillator (a square wave from the Virus sampled with a crunchy lofi settings on a Casio FZ sampler), and for that instant chopped pad-gratification, we also added a trance gate effect with six predefined patterns you can choose from.

Fingerpushers Superstructure
Superstructure comes with 105 presets with a focus on plucks and pads.

Superstructure features

  • 181 megabyte sound pool. The oscillators have been sampled in great detail: almost every key with long loops.
  • 105 presets (55 single presets and 50 multi sounds).
  • All files in 44.1 kHz, 16 bit WAV format. Programmed for Kontakt 4.

The sound library is available to purchase for 14.90 EUR.

rekkerd.org exclusive: Freon Surfer FZ free drum kit by Carl Löfgren

Carl Löfgren of Fingerpushers and Plughugger has released Freon Surfer FZ, a free instrument based on the Freon Surfer preset of the Sonic Charge MicroTonic software drum machine.

Freon Surfer FZ
Freon Surfer FZ with custom Native Instruments Kontakt interface.

All eight drum sounds have been sampled by the mighty Casio FZ-20m sampler at 36 kilohertz, at crunchy 9 kilohertz and at 9 kilohertz too loud to capture the natural distortion of the analog converters.

Lastly, we did the old-school drum and bass trick of timestretching the samples back and forth a number of times, to give the samples a glitchy digital feel to them. For this we used our E-mu E4XT sampler.

Below are two short demo clips showcasing the various sound banks.

Freon Surfer FZ features

  • 8 sounds recorded at 36kHz, 9kHz, 9kHz overdriven, and 9kHz stretched.
  • 32 unique samples in total, 16-bit/44kHz mono Wav.
  • Instrument patches for Kontakt 4, Maschine, and Geist.
  • Custom Kontakt GUI with knob to select sound bank.

The Freon Surfer FZ sample pack is available as a free download.

Freon Surfer FZSize:6.76 MB

Fingerpushers

Fingerpushers has launched with the release of Infected, a sample-based instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Inspired by the Virus TI synthesizer, Infected aims to be a toolbox and source of inspiration for the modern producer. Infected captures ten major aspects of the Virus oscillators, covering everything from plastic plucks and supersaws to the most fundamental building blocks such as square and sawtooth.

With a focus on modern dance music, Infected was designed to be quick to use. There are no switching between pages or any hidden menus. What you see is what you get: a streamlined synthesizer meant for rapid creation of modern sounds.

The most creative part of Infected is the built-in sequencer, which was designed to help finding interesting sequences and musical phrases quickly.

Fingerpushers Infected
Infected comes with 111 presets ranging from plucks and sequences to pads.

Infected features

  • 417 megabyte sound pool. The oscillators have been sampled in detail: almost every key with long loops.
  • 111 presets (56 single presets and 55 multi sounds).
  • All files in 44.1 kHz, 16 bit WAV format. Programmed for Kontakt 4.

The sample library is available to purchase for 19.90 EUR.
