Useful Noise launches online sample boutique with 4 new sample packs

Useful Noise has announced its return with the release of 4 new sample packs from producer/sound designer Keith Hillebrandt (Nine Inch Nails, Nearly, Apple, Roland).

Reborn as an online digital delivery sample boutique, Useful Noise Online strives to be an option for those who don’t want their music and content to sound like everyone else.

Useful Noise Alternative Spaces

Alternative Spaces

The Alternative Spaces sample pack features a collection of 148 deep atmospheres, ambiences and drones.

Over a gigabyte of stunning 24-bit 96k samples that will add a special mood, feel and depth in film, media and music productions.

Available in either Apple Loop (.aif) or Wave (.wav) formats with EXS24 and Kontakt starter instruments included.

Useful Noise Trigger Man

Trigger Man

Trigger Man is a one of a kind collection of 100+ gate and envelope triggered loops.

These loops were created by running tones, found sound and noise through gates and envelope followers resulting in kick/snare/hat like beats that can work as main beats, breakdowns and beat shadows.

A wide range of BPMs that covers ambient to minimal to breaks to dubstep styles. 64 4-bar loops with breakdown version where applicable.

Useful Noise Tiny Machines Getting Crushed

Tiny Machines Getting Crushed

Tiny Machines Getting Crushed is a loop library featuring 277 samples of distorted analog drum machines.

Classic and obscure analog beat boxes are sampled, reprogrammed and then squeezed, smashed and decimated through modular synth modules, old guitar pedals and digital distortions to create one very nasty beat collection.

137 original loops with breakdown versions where applicable.

Useful Noise Damaged FX

Damaged FX

The Damaged FX pack features a collection of 285 processed and twisted noises, tweaks and loops.

A nice little collection if you want to add some unique damaged, glitchy effects or loops to your music or visuals.

Available in either Apple Loop (.aif) or Wave (.wav) formats with EXS24 and Kontakt starter instruments included.

Alternative Spaces is available to purchase for $20 USD; Trigger Man, Tiny Machines Getting Crushed, and Damaged FX are $15 USD each. A bundle of all 4 packs is available for $50 USD.

Xenakios updates HourGlass to v1.4.5 (Windows)

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Mar 10, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Xenakios has updated the Windows version of HourGlass, a free application intended for radical sound processing.

Xenakios HourGlass

HourGlass is a standalone application intended for radical sound processing by taking fragments (more commonly referred to as “grains” in other similar software) from sound recordings, to create sound textures.

It is not intended for minor transparent corrections of playback speed or pitch, but is rather placed firmly in the sound mangling/glitch territory.

Changes in HourGlass v1.4.5 for Windows

  • Preliminary feature to allow envelopes to play at different rates, as a multiplier of the texture length. (i.e., if the texture length is 8 seconds, setting an envelope rate of 8 will make that envelope play 8 times during the whole texture.)
    • The dial allows changing the speed to some common multiples of the texture length, the text box can be used to enter a free rate multiplier between 0.001 and 1024.
    • This feature currently conflicts with the looped texture playback. The workaround is to disable the looped playback. (The sounding result will however effectively still be looped for most envelopes.)
    • Also, when offline rendering, longer progressions of multiple playback rates might not evolve as far as desired, as the offline rendering ends at the texture length plus the tail length. The workaround is to use the live output recording feature. I will try to come up with some solutions to these in the future.
  • Maximum voice count increased from 256 to 512. It will depend on the computer capabilities, the used resampler mode and use of multithreaded voice processing if all the voices can actually play.
  • While making the above change, I noticed a performance problem with high voice counts, which hopefully is now fixed.
  • Sound volume to envelope converter window length now has name and value labels in the GUI.
  • The offline chain processing progress indicator would sometimes get stuck over the waveform view, hopefully now fixed.

HourGlass is available as a free download.
