Ian Boddy releases Beatalogue

Ian Boddy Beatalogue

Ian Boddy has released Beatalogue, the 4th sample library in the waveforms series.

This follow up to ‘Drumalogue’ takes a selection of electronic drum patterns and loops which were then fed through Boddy´s massive modular synth system. These were then filtered, mangled and generally messed up using a huge number of modules all in the analogue domain.

All the loops have between 3 and 5 variations and sonically range from sweet filtering all the way through to completely crunched and twisted mayhem. The quality of the distortion and overdrive achieved using these techniques gives the loops a gorgeous organic feel which is further heightened by the sound of the modular itself with it´s fuzzy warmness and tripping envelopes.

The sounds are also provided in Rex2 and Apple Loops format enabling them to be used at various tempos and dissected by the end user for their own purposes.

Beatalogue features

  • 300 mono samples at 44.1Khz, 24 bit in WAV format.
  • All samples also provided in Rex2 & Apple Loops format.
  • Drum Loops filtered, mangled & messed up via the following analogue synthesisers:
    • Roland System 100-M
    • Analogue Systems
    • Doepfer A-100 modular system
    • Analogue Solutions
    • Livewire AFG, Vulcan & Dalek Modulators
    • Metasonix TM-2 Tube BP filter & R-53 Tube Waveshaper/Ring Mod
    • Flight of Harmony Plague Bearer
    • The Harvestman Malgorithm
    • WMD Geiger Counter
    • Make Noise QMMG
    • Minimoog
    • VCS3

Beatalogue is available to purchase as a digital download for £24.99 GBP / 29.99 EUR / $39.99 USD.

Review: Ian Boddy Drumalogue

Ian Boddy Drumalogue

Ian Boddy is a sound synthesist. Don’t ask me what that means exactly, but what I do know is that Ian has been doing electronic music for almost 3 decades.

Besides being quite a prolific musician, Ian also has been working as a sound designer for some 25 years. His works include sample libraries like Zero-G’s Malice in Wonderland and Outer Limits, Transmission-X for Sample Magic, and patches and samples used in LinPlug, Camel Audio & Rob Papen products.

Last year his Something Else Music Limited label launched the Ian Boddy Waveforms, a series of tightly focused downloadable sample packs.

The third title in the Waveforms series is Drumalogue, a library of 1,000 analogue drum, percussion and one-shot hits.

However these are not taken from vintage drum machines (of which there is already plenty of content available elsewhere) but rather all the sounds are hand crafted by Boddy on vintage analogue synths and modular systems. They run the full gamut from thunderous bass drums, crisp snares & hats through to abstract synth hits & FX and even weird glitchy & industrial sounds.

Drumalogue features

  • 1,000 samples at 44.1Khz, 24 bit in WAV format (stereo & mono samples).
  • Raw audio recorded from the following analogue synthesisers: Roland System 100-M, Analogue Systems, Doepfer A-100, Analogue Solutions, Livewire AFG, VCS3, Minimoog, Metasonix TM-2 tube BP filter.
  • Recorded directly into Apple Mac using RME Fireface 400 audio interface, samples edited in Bias Peak Pro 5.
  • Native Instruments Kontakt 2 support provided.

The Kontakt 2 programs (with a basic envelope and low-pass filter) provide an easy way to access and use the samples.

The Kontakt folder is divided into three sections:

  1. Audition – All the sounds per category (20 categories) with one sound per key starting at C1.
  2. Kits – 18 patches follow as closely as possible the General MIDI Percussion Key Map from B0 (Key35) to B2 (Key59) and provide a convenient way of playing some of the sounds as “drum kits”.
  3. Patches – 34 sounds key-mapped out in patches.

Drumalogue is available as a download from various distributors for £24.95 GBP / $34.95 USD / 27.95 EUR.

So what do I think?

Drumalogue won’t replace the vintage synths, modular systems and analogue effect processors used to create this sample library. The hands-on experience of tweaking knobs and patching sounds just isn’t going to be available in a collection of samples.

What Drumalogue does provide is an excellent collection of samples for those of us who can’t afford this type of equipment, or perhaps don’t have the space to fit all that gear into our music studios. Either way, Ian Boddy delivers on quality and versatility with Drumalogue: Raw, glitchy, bleepy analogue goodness!

Just listen to the demo mp3s and you will know what I am talking about. If your drum sample library has room for something different, I can highly recommend Drumalogue.

Visit the Ian Boddy Waveforms website for more information.

Note: Time+Space has a great deal on the first two Waveforms libraries. Airwaves and Radiophonica are available in a special bundle for just £40 GBP until 31 May, 2009. Details here.

Ian Boddy releases Drumalogue

Ian Boddy Drumalogue

Ian Boddy has released Drumalogue, the third sample library in the Waveforms series from Something Else Music Limited.

This is a library of 1,000 analogue drum, percussion and one-shot hits. However these are not taken from vintage drum machines (of which there is already plenty of content available elsewhere) but rather all the sounds are hand crafted by Boddy on vintage analogue synths and modular systems.

They run the full gamut from thunderous bass drums, crisp snares & hats through to abstract synth hits & FX and even weird glitchy & industrial sounds.

The sounds are a mixture of mono and stereo samples and some have genuine analogue effects printed on them from spring reverbs, bucket brigade delays and phaser/flangers. This all adds up to a cornucopia of drum and percussion sounds that can be used in virtually any style of production.

Drumalogue features

  • 1,000 samples at 44.1Khz, 24 bit in WAV format.
  • Mixture of stereo & mono samples.
  • Raw audio recorded from the following analogue synthesisers: Roland System 100-M, Analogue Systems, Doepfer A-100, Analogue Solutions, Livewire AFG, VCS3, Minimoog, Metasonix TM-2 tube BP filter.
  • Recorded directly into Apple Mac using RME Fireface 400 audio interface.
  • Samples edited in Bias Peak Pro 5.
  • Native Instruments Kontakt 2 support provided.

Drumalogue is available for purchase from selected distributors for £24.95 GBP.
