Particular Audio has launched Space Rangers – Phrases, a collection of analogue and digital loops of swirling melodic phrases, crunchy glitches and collapsing harmonics.
Created as a fusion between psychedelic electronica, ambient space music and glitchy IDM, the Phrases sub-package in the Space Rangers series is the farthest reaching into the concept – as much as possible devoid of any restrictions in terms of staying within a style. As with the earlier packs, the sound designer crew at Particular forged sequences of sounds from various analogue and digital modular systems, passed them through a setup of high quality outboard processors, and fed them back in again through yet another series of digital effect processors – creating endless variations with the twist of a knob. But this time nothing was forbidden. The weirder the better!
All loops are made for recombination, so layer and connect textures together to create new textures and call – response patterns. The length of the loops vary depending on the variation and motion in the sound, so cut, slice, realign and reassemble to meet your songs requirements. Swing, lag, push or any timing inherent, as well as pitch or chord, are yours to to manipulate and abuse.
In detail expect to find 172 phrase loops between 80 and 130 bpm. All in all 437 MB of 48 kHz 24 bit wavefiles.
Samplephonics has announced a 25% discount on its sound libraries through February.
It’s Februrary, and we’re feeling glitchy. We’ve just released Slice Machine 001 // Histibe Future Breaks, which is the first instrument ever built for Kontakt that allows you to add, move, rearrange and effect individual slices from a custom GUI. In no time, a simple 2 bar drum loop can be turned into a complex, stuttery, glitched-out masterpiece! The pack comes with 130 expertly produced drum loops from renowned producer Histibe and another 200 presets for Kontakt.
Paul Rez has also returned to bring us another stunning sample library, Voodooteque, which contains an eclectic collection of thought provoking, genre bending, organic loops fed through his various bits of circuit bent gear and custom tube guitar amps.
Use code SLICE2938 at checkout to take advantage of this offer. The sale ends February 28th, 2013.
Samplephonics has announced its first Slice Machine series sample library Future Breaks, featuring a collection of expertly produced drum loops from renowned producer Histibe.
This sample pack is truly pioneering, and is the first Kontakt library ever built that allows you to add, move around and manipulate slice points via a custom GUI. At just a few clicks of a button you can map out sections of the drum loop to diffferent keys or midi pads, then map individual effects and processes to each slice. In no time at all, a straightforward drum beat can be turned into a complex glitched out loop pattern.
If you Kontakt is not for you, you still have the option to download a truly exceptional set of drum loops, all 100% royalty free and ready to use in any DAW, including Fruity Loops, Reason, Logic, Ableton, Pro Tools and all the rest.
The sample library is available to purchase for £34.70 GBP. The 24-bit Wav only pack is £27.40 GBP.
Producer Loops has announced the release of Supalife Glitch & Breaks, a new sample pack by Eddy Beneteau of Supalife Records.
It includes some of the most insane turntable wizardry around plus everything from vocal fragments to synth leads and white noise, all scratched beyond recognition into new rhythmic phrases.
These scratch loops alone would be enough to create a worthy sample pack, but ‘Supalife Glitch & Breaks’ also includes a selection of infectious beats, bass lines, melodies and chord progressions, as heard in the MP3 demo.
And because every loop has been formatted as REX you can play them like instruments and easily re-arrange the scratch loops into new patterns using any compatible software (such as Stylus RMX or Dr OctoRex in Reason 6.5).
Supalife Glitch & Breaks is available to purchase for £22.46 GBP.
