Samplephonics Half-Step Drum and Bass

Are you tired of hearing the same, regurgitated musical styles, the subtle variations on the same old themes and the spoon fed junk forced upon us by those in control? Well, its time to take back what is ours, to rebel against the system and spread anarchy through the establishment.

This sample pack is something born out of the will to change. A twisted fusion of drum and bass, hip hop and techno, contorted, warped and re-sampled into this hybrid collection of earth shattering sounds.

The sample pack is available for purchase for £25 GBP. A pack of one-shot samples is £13 GBP.

The Hip Hop Guitar Loops sample pack features a collection of 236 guitar loops.

Samplephonics Hip Hop Guitar Loops

Are you looking to stock up your samplers with some stunning authentic downtempo guitar loops? If you produce hip hop, trip hop, chillout or downtempo, this sample pack is a must.

The loops and samples in this pack have been designed to be cut up, rearranged and tweaked for your arrangements. Find your perfect melodic snapshots and twist them around your beats to create funked up resampled mashups and melodic hip hop masterpieces.

Hip Hop Guitar Loops costs £25 GBP.

Sylenth: Retro Pads features a collection of 80’s analogue synth sounds, lush evolving pads, and mystical-pitchy-poly-synth-vibes for the Sylenth1 synthesizer from Lennar Digital.

Samplephonics Sylenth: Retro Pads

All presets and patches have been painstakingly crafted to recreate all the nuances and imperfections of analogue, providing you with an essential library of authentic 80’s sounds at your fingertips… without having to re-mortgage your house!

Infusing 80’s synth pop, downtempo and even science fiction, these characterful synth presets are a must have addition for any music producer wanting to extend their sound palette and inject movement and character into their music.

The soundset is available for £15 GBP.

Applied Acoustics Systems announces Strum Acoustic GS-2

Applied Acoustics Systems has announced the upcoming release of Strum Acoustic GS-2, an all-new version of its award-wining Strum Acoustic GS-1 guitar track production plug-in.

Applied Acoustics Systems Stum Acoustic GS-2

Strum Acoustic GS-2 will ship with a new streamlined interface, a new equalizer and compressor module, a new multieffect processor as well as native 64-bit operation on Mac OS X and Windows, and much more. The factory library has been completely redesigned and includes an impressive collection of steel and nylon guitars.

Strum is based on an elaborate voicing module which automatically voices chords played on the keyboard as a guitar player would on the fretboard. Strumming and picking actions are reproduced by an auto-strum function, special strumming keys, or MIDI loops.

“We have completely reviewed the modeling behind Strum – from the string to the body – and reconsidered how the different elements interact with each other; we now have a whole new level of realism and dynamics,” said Marc-Pierre Verge, CEO of AAS, “With its extensive collection of guitars and the ability to tweak them as required, Strum Acoustic is more than ever a perfect solution for creating great sounding acoustic guitar tracks.”

Strum Acoustic GS-2 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) will be available by the end of the first quarter of 2015 at a suggested retail price of $199 USD. Upgrades will be available for Strum Acoustics GS-1 users.

AAS products are distributed in the US by ILIO. During the NAMM show, AAS will be exhibiting with ILIO in Hall A booth 6724.
