ToneBuilder releases Driven Machine Drums Strikes Back sample library

ToneBuilder has released Driven Machine Drums Strikes Back, a drum and percussion sample library.

ToneBuilder Driven Machine Drums Strikes Back

“What if a time-capsule was discovered that contained never before heard drum machines… With the classic character of the 909, 808, 707, SP1200, Drumulator, and Linns…”

“What if Don Buchla created a drum machine…”

“What if that time-capsule also contained a drum machine from the future…”

These are the questions I had in mind, a game I played, during the creation of Driven Machine Drums Strikes Back. But the real questions are what would you do today with these sounds, what genres could you invent, who’s mind could you blow?

A few people enjoyed Driven Machine Drum and wrote in asking me to continue working on sound design, so I decided to sell a large portion of my kit and double down on some of the best analog and digital synthesis technology available today… if not the best.

DMD Strikes Back features

  • 2072 Premium Designer Drum Samples.
  • 24-Bit/96kHz WAV, 24-Bit/96kHz AIF.
  • Intelligently organized and labeled for optimal creative work-flow.
  • 16-Bit/44.1kHz WAV, featuring premium dithering/SRC and 8 character names for classic samplers such as the MPC and Akai series.
  • 22 FXPansion Geist and Guru Kits.
  • Deluxe Edition: Logic EXS-24 programs (also compatible with Digidesign’s Structure).
  • Deluxe Edition: Native Intruments Kontakt programs.

Driven Machine Drums Strikes Back is available to purchase for the introductory price of $69 USD (Standard Edition) $77 USD (Deluxe Edition) until October 31, 2011.

FXpansion releases Geist Expander: Analogue Mayhem

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Aug 09, 2011 - comment 0 comments

FXpansion has released Analogue Mayhem, a Geist Expander featuring edgy, organic electronic sounds generated almost exclusively with a large analogue modular synthesizer.

FXpansion Analogue Mayhem

Its unique character and texture is ready to deploy in Geist’s fast and intuitive sample-sequencing environment – insane sequences, deranged SFX bursts, deep basses, lush chord stabs and multi-sampled synthetic drums which use Geist’s round-robin playback, velocity layering and FX treatments for expressive depth and sonic variation.

Anything but vanilla, Analogue Mayhem defies genre categorization and is infused with a refreshing energy and attitude. Its versatile, tasteful material is universally relevant in any music requiring powerful, forward-looking sounds, and begs to be mangled further through Geist’s FX and filters or any device capable of loading 24-bit 44.1khz WAV and RX2 files. Producers of dubstep, techno, electro, hip-hop, ambient, drum & bass and other creative modern styles will find Analogue Mayhem a trip to use.

Analogue Mayhem features

  • Geist Expander for electronic music.
  • Over 800 WAV samples.
  • Over 180 RX2 loops.
  • 5 Full song presets.
  • 6 Engine presets.
  • 30 Kit presets.
  • 71 Pad presets.

Geist Expander: Analogue Mayhem is available to purchase for £18 GBP/€21 EUR/$29 USD for all registered Geist owners.

FXpansion Ski Rize Dubstep

Created by ‘Subject’ from Ski Rize Studios, the included sounds are designed specifically for making hard-hitting, heavy urban beats. The result is a vibrant palette of relevant material which saves you from trying to find a handful of useful sounds in more generic sample sets.

Plughugger releases TR-SONIQ sample library

Plughugger TR-SONIQ

Plughugger has released TR-SONIQ, a new sample library for Geist, Guru, Maschine, Akai MPC and WAV formats.

While the mad scientists at Ensoniq are long gone, their legacy remains in the hands of producers who still can’t part from the sound of their aging samplers.

TR-SONIQ is a sound library of TR909 and 808 drum machines colliding sonically with a refurbished Ensoniq DP/4 effects unit. It’s big, dirty and noisy, and as with all Ensoniq products, it got a character rarely found among the polished sound processors of today.

The classic drum machines from Roland are constantly being processed by SSL consoles, Distressors or software compressors and distortion units such as Sonalksis TBK3 and Ohm Force Ohmicide – the sound of Ensoniq brings a new flavor to the classic sounds.

With TR-SONIQ we have given the old drum sounds full treatment, drenching them in Ensoniq goodness, building new processing chains from scratch, sampling the results and finally converting and dithering them into 16 bit samples that can be used with practically any hard- or software sampler.

The library consists of 318 separate samples all organized into categories. There are also ten pre-made drum kits for Fxpansion Geist and Guru, Native Instruments Maschine and Akai MPC.

TR-SONIQ is available to purchase for 5.90 EUR.
