Zebra Redux (Ravenholm skin)
Ravenholm, one of the new color schemes of the Zebra Redux skin.

Zebra Redux is a skin pack for Zebra, Zebrify and ZRev made primarily with sound designer workflow in mind. Initially I built it to reflect my own needs but I’m sure some of you guys will enjoy it too. So here it is.

Changes in Zebra Redux

  • UI: added 3 new color schemes: Cyan Borschtsch, Rainforest and Ravenholm.
  • UI: added color scheme support for Zebrify and ZRev.
  • UI: added support for user color schemes.
  • VCF: changed the order of Cutoff, Mod1 and Mod2 knobs.
  • Env1: fixed disappearing v-slope slider.

The latest version of the Zebra Redux skin pack is available from the u-he forum at KVR Audio.

DRZHNN has released Zebra Redux, a skin pack for the Zebra synthesizer instrument from u-he.

DRZHNN Zebra Redux

I’ve been working on this project for about two month now, so I’m very excited to finally share it with you guys.

Zebra Redux is a skin pack for Zebra, Zebrify and ZRev made primarily with sound designer workflow in mind. Initially I built it to reflect my own needs but I’m sure some of you guys will enjoy it too. So here it is.

Zebra Redux features

  • Default window size is bigger now (914×914 px).
  • Removed lower pane. All its features now reappear in form of modules.
  • Renamed Perform, Synthesis and Patches tabs to XY, SYNTH and LIB respectively.
  • XY pads and FX Grid are now part of a central pane and accessible from both SYNTH and LIB tabs.
  • Moved assignable XY controls from lower pane to XY tab. Now all XY pad related parameters are in one place.
  • Added new OSCs tab with 4 full-size OSC editors in one place for fast and easy editing, copying and pasting.
  • Added new MSEGs tab with 4 full-size MSEG editors in one place.
  • Moved global patch settings from lower pane to generators pane for easy access.
  • Changed label color of all definable controls (…) to red.
  • All menus that have only two items will now iterate through those items (when clicking) without opening the popup menu. Menu is still accessible via right click.
  • OSC module now has waveform editor, waveform selector, preset manager and a subpanel with key and velocity scale editors.
  • Noise, XMF and Comb modules now feature local XY pads for controlling two predefined (by me) parameters.
  • FMO module now has subpanel with key and velocity scale editors. FM waveform is represented by an authentic waveform icon.
  • Changed some important menus and switches to graphical icons. Some of them somehow reflect the reality, others are abstract and probably will change in the future.
  • Arp, ArpMod, Modulation Matrix and MSEGs are now modules in modulators pane. ArpMods and MSEGs modules are hidden if not in use.
  • Added new EXTRA tab (empty for now).
  • Zebrify: Envelope Follower and Pitch Detector modules are now part of modulators pane and have big sliders combined with indicators for easy tuning.
  • ZRev: changed T and AP knobs to sliders.

The pack is a free download from KVR Audio and DRZHNN.

Hollow Sun releases The Shell for Kontakt

Hollow Sun has released The Shell, a professionally scripted panel/GUI library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Hollow Sun The Shell
The Shell is a unique Kontakt instrument designed for you to take YOUR samples to a new level of convenient tweakability.

The Shell is a unique thing in that it’s an empty Kontakt instrument which allows YOU to put YOUR samples into it and have a fully functional, professionally scripted and designed panel at your disposal for sonic tweakage. Ideal if you make your own samples/sounds but aren’t able to do scripting or find it difficult.

Scripting IS very complicated if you’re not that way inclined … like myself … which is why we have our own resident scriptmeister in the form of the enviably gifted Mario Krušelj here at HS Towers. Let’s face it, Kontakt scripting can be very complicated even if you ARE that way inclined!

So with The Shell, you can make your own samples, pop into Kontakt’s mapping editor to assign and map them out, leave Kontakt’s editor and then take advantage of a comprehensive user interface panel made by a professional Kontakt scripter where you can tweak your sounds without having to delve into Kontakt’s sometimes arcane edit pages.

The Shell for Kontakt is available to purchase for £8 GBP.

Ableton updates Live to v9.0.3

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Apr 19, 2013 - comment 1 comment

Ableton has updated its Live 9 music production software for Windows and Mac to version 9.0.3.

Ableton Live 9 Disco skin
Image of the new Disco skin in Live 9.0.3, posted by David Abravanel.

Changes in Live 9.0.3

  • Improvements and feature changes:
    • Added a new skin: “Disco”.
    • Added a new option to the “Record/Warp/Launch” preferences pane: “Start Transport with Record”. If activated, the transport will start immediately when clicking on the Session- or Arrangement-Record buttons. If deactivated, it prepares for recording as in Live 8, so you have to launch a clip in Session View or click the ‘Play’ button. You can hold down the Shift modifier key when clicking on the record buttons to invert the behavior temporarily.
    • When recording automation on top of an existing automation envelope, and quickly clicking on different positions in parameters like sliders, X/Y pads, etc., Live now records a latching automation envelope instead of jumping back to the previous value.
    • The Compressor device does not clip input signals at +20 dB anymore.
    • Added control surface support for Novation Launchkey series.
    • Added control surface support for M-Audio Axiom Air Mini 32.
    • Added a user satisfaction survey. After several hours of usage, Live will ask you to rate the software on the next startup. You can submit a star rating or simply dismiss the survey.
    • Updated manual, lessons and translations.
  • Bug fixes:
    • The Trial version of Live 9.0.2 could hang on startup.
    • Live would not work as a ReWire slave on Windows.
    • The performance of the Ableton Index process has been improved, especially on OS X.
    • The Ableton Index process would sometimes not scan all folders after adding them to the sidebar.
    • The Ableton Index process could block the GUI during saving and exporting of Live sets, presets or clips.
    • Scanning folders containing a huge amount of files could take longer than necessary.
    • The Browser would not update its content pane after a change in the file system if the selection was somewhere outside of the Browser.
    • Expanding the Audio Unit folder in the browser’s “Plug-ins” label could be slow for users which have a lot of library content installed.
    • Live would not save a clip self-contained after dragging it to the Browser and confirming the name of the new clip by clicking anywhere outside of the Browser.
    • The Session Record button would not turn off if the recording was aborted, e.g. by stopping or deleting the currently recording clip, disarming a track, etc.
    • Under certain conditions, MIDI notes would not get recorded into a clip slot after deleting a previous clip.
    • Overdubbing into MIDI clips could unnecessarily bloat the undo history file.
    • Fixed a graphical glitch which could occur in the representation of the filter curve in EQ Eight’s Frequency Display.
    • Several MIDI control surfaces would not correctly shut down after quitting Live, e.g. motorfaders on the Mackie Control would not return to zero, Axiom Pro devices would not exit Hypercontrol mode, etc.
    • The “Project Mix IO” control surface would not work.
    • The channel strip buttons on the Mackie Control XT would not work.
    • Fixed a bug where the key navigation in track headers would not work properly when certain control surfaces are selected.
    • When using control surface scripts, the blue hand would sometimes not map to any device, e.g. after creating a device and then deleting it by using undo.
    • Live could sometimes crash on quit in case a faulty MIDI remote script throws an exception in the Python console.
    • Fixed a crash which could occur in Live Intro when right-clicking on a drum rack chain.
  • Changes for Push:
    • Using the touch strip to change banks in drum racks now requires to pick up the current value, to avoid changing banks accidentally while playing.
    • Fixed incorrect intervals in the Locrian scale.
    • The velocity curve setting would reset to the default value when opening a new Live set.
    • Changing the pad sensitivity settings could be slow if a drum rack was in focus.
    • Updating the LCD display could be slow when switching between Drum and Note mode.
    • The Push LCD could remain blank and no mode would be selected after holding the ‘Browse’ mode button.
    • Fixed a bug where ‘Browse’ mode would be exited after swapping a Max for Live instrument.
    • Tracks created by dragging an instrument would sometimes not be automatically armed if Push is connected.
    • The “Arm Exclusive” preference would not be respected when Push was connected.
    • Fixed a bug where recording wouldn’t work properly if the default clip launch mode was set to ‘Toggle’ mode.
    • Fixed a crash which could occur when using the ‘Quantize’ function.
    • Fixed a crash which could occur when using Push to delete a device whilst recording automation for this device with the mouse.

The update is now available to download at Ableton.
