G-Sonique releases Transient shaping system+

Related: , , , Posted in news on Oct 03, 2011 - comment 0 comments

G-Sonique has released Transient shaping system+, a new G-Mix+ series plug-in.

Are your drums or percussion sounding unprofessional, boring and flat? Were they recorded in poor acoustic conditions or just missing transients,punch or energy? Or maybe it’s vice versa and their sound is too sharp and aggressive? No problem! Transient shaping system+ is tool intended to fix most possible problems with your drums or percussion and give them a fresh modern sound, punchy shape and adapt their envelope or transients to your requirements.

Transient shaping system+ is not a dynamic processor that is controlled by input level amounts (like a compressor). Overall sound is controlled and shaped by its own dynamics and transients!

Transient shaping system+ features

  • Transient control – long: algorithm for controlling and shaping transients “from the perspective of a longer period of time (in milliseconds)”. Attack and release
    knob for setting shape of transients/beat envelope and transient amount knob for setting amount of boosting transients/envelope shape, set by attack and
    release knob.
  • Transient control – short: similar algorithm to Transient control – long just aimed to controlling, shaping and boosting transients/beat envelopes from the
    perspective of a short period of time (in milliseconds).
  • By combinations of short and long transient control you have full freedom to shape the transients / envelopes of your beat. For example: you can keep long
    transients in your beat but with just lower volumes (by setting a lower value of transient amount on the long transient control module) and in parallel, add a
    short and punchy transient boost by setting high values of transient amounts on the transient control – short module.
  • Input and output volume knob: similarly, as with an analog outboard you can affect overall sound by setting the level of input volume.
  • Saturation shaping of transient control – short/long module: if there are too sharp and intensive volume peaks / transients after boosting with TSS+ and you
    don’t want to compress/limit with additional compressors, you can transform the sharp shape of the transients into rounded analog sounding peaks / transients
    with transient shaping control. Saturation shaping is not basic saturation of overall sound that adds higher harmonics as you know from vintage machines, it is
    just saturation/rounding of the signal from the transient control module long/sharp by which are multiplied original transients of the dry signal.
  • Bypass for comparing your track with and without the effect.
  • Dry/Wet knob for precise setting how much of effect will be applied.
  • Preset manager with 20 precisely selected example presets for electronic and acoustic Drums and Percussion.

Transient shaping system+ for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for the introductory price of 15.90 EUR.

G-Sonique releases Technotron SD422 minimal techno sample library

G-Sonique has released Technotron SD422, a minimal techno sample library.

G-Sonique Technotron SD422

Minimal techno, industrial techno, schranz, electro, free tekno, Detroit techno, these styles seem to consist of simple to make rhythmical beats and other variations, but this is just not true. Everyone who has tried to produce minimal techno music at the top level must surely have met with the fundamental problem which is missing suitable samples that have the characteristics of a dirty minimalistic sound in their collections. Many of the samples from the available basic drum collections are not really useful, and there is a lack of minimal techno samples on the market which could be bought in the standard e-shops.

From our experiences we know that from 90% of techno sample packs, produced by competitors, only classic samples are usually useful like kicks, claps, hi-hats, but they are missing the most important of them: synthetic, dirty, minimal percussion, industrial sounds, robotic drums, scary hits, dusty clicks and scratches which sounds like a weak scratched radio signal from a far-away NASA space station attacked by evil aliens. The sound of drums that you never know where they are coming from. The creepy woods of the Amazon jungle or from a far, unknown mutant civilization, dark dirty noises and breath taking massive percussive f***ing beats. Simply put, the basic structure of each great techno track was always a big problem to achieve and even more difficult to produce. But …

The TECHNOTRON SD 422 is HERE! – A collection of the samples which will help you to produce minimal techno at the TOP level.

Now it is so easy to produce pro sounding minimal techno tracks, like building a house from LEG0 during your spooky childhood.

Of course, this sample pack is not just to be used for minimal techno, it is also useful in the most dark music styles like dark psytrance, psycore, dark ambient, dubstep, a dark drum and bass / neurofunk / darkstep / techstep, experimental, industrial, dark wave, tribal, minimal house, EBM, dark core . . .

TECHNOTRON SD 422 features

  • BASS: 29X – Techno bass and sub bass samples.
  • CLAPS: 56X – Minimal and non-traditional FX claps.
  • CLICKS: 141X – Minimal or dirty clicks and short percussive sounds.
  • ELECTRO SOUNDS: 127X – Electro hell percussive and FX samples with original sound.
  • HI-HATS: 117X – classic and brand new minimal, experimental or dusty close-hats, open-hats, ride-cymbals, industrial hats.
  • KICKS: 90X – various kick drums, minimal, deep or aggressive hard industrial ass kickers.
  • PERCUSSIONS: 221X – Synthetic minimal percussion, special percussive hits, industrial hits and sounds, dusty effected shamanic drums, alien drums and effects.
  • TOM DRUMS: 92X – TOM drums and percussive effects as you never heard before, dirty percussive madness…
  • SNARES: 33X – modern and aggressive snares or old school SID chip style snares.
  • Total of 900+ individual samples.

Technotron SD422 is available to purchase for 11.90 EUR for the first 50 customers. Regular price is 19.90 EUR.
