Zero-G releases Nu Disco & Whoosh Designer sample libraries

Zero-G Nu Disco

Zero-G has released Nu Disco, a new sample pack featuring authentic retro disco and club sounds but with a modern feel.

“With Nu Disco you can pay homage to the golden ego of dance as well as taking a step in to the future to create this years unmistakable sound”.

Nu Disco contains 35 construction kits with loads of additional chord progressions, drumloops, bass riffs, guitar licks and single hits. It is full of authentic retro disco and club sounds but with a modern feel and with the subtle tang of those 80’s guitar licks, smooth rhodes, sizzling synths, funky basslines and a mixture of live drums for the funk and disco and also some stomping house beats.

The concept behind the construction kits is to allow you to filter and mash up the full mix as if you were sampling from vinyl but also, to give you complete flexibility, each full mix is split down into its component parts to allow you to work with individual instrument loops as well.

The sample pack is available for purchase as a download for $79.99 (ex. VAT), or as a boxed DVD for £59.95 GBP (incl. VAT)/$79.99 GBP (no VAT)/74.95 EUR (incl. VAT).

Zero-G has also launched Whoosh Designer, a Kontakt 5 instrument library by Dan Graham, who also produced Impact Designer, Animato, Spiritoso, Luminoso and Perpetuo.

Zero-G Whoosh Designer

Whoosh Designer makes the best whoosh noises you will ever hear! Whooshes are short noise sounds that give an instant rush of movement, excitement, anticipation and release. Placed around an impact sound they add massive size and power. Placed under a drum fill they add an almighty rush and a powerful transition from one section to another.

Whooshes have the power to transform all sound and music into a higher dimension of drama and animation. Sound design, trailer music, epic music, film scores, EDM, hip-hop, indie, rock; whatever you are doing, adding whooshes will make your sound more exciting.

Whoosh Designer is a Kontakt Instrument that combines amazing raw sounds, incredible simplicity, a high degree of playability and a very high level of customisation. Every Whoosh is made up of 3 elements – ATTACK, PEAK and DECAY. These 3 elements are the initial attack, the intense peak of the whoosh and the long release of the sound. This Whoosh Designer instrument quickly crossfades between 3 different sounds in order to produce sonic complexity and a very wide range of possible variations.

Whoosh Designer features

  • 740MB of sounds on DVD (or download).
  • 768 samples (.ncw files) in total.
  • 165 Kontakt 5 Instruments with custom Graphic Interface.
  • Many millions of possible variations to create unique sonic impacts.

Whoosh Desinger is available for purchase for download for $99.99 (ex. VAT), or as a boxed DVD for £69.95 GBP (incl. VAT)/$99.99 USD (no VAT)/94.95 EUR (incl. VAT). Requires full version of Kontakt version 5.3.1 or above.

Cinesamples updates Piano in Blue for Kontakt to v2.2

Cinesamples has released version 2.2 of Piano in Blue, a 1949 Steinway D piano instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Cinesamples Piano in Blue

Changes in Piano in Blue v2.2

  • Latency — Added “Sample Start” knob which will cut into the samples of the sustains by 20ms — this adjustment will remove all of the hammer/finger noise from the instrument.
  • Tape Sample Replace — Re-recorded all the sample sets back through a physical Studer tape machine with better leveling to remove the “crunch” on the top velocities.
  • Individual de-noising of V1 direct samples.
  • Sample fix — F4, Velocity 101-110, Direct-Room (fixes modulated distortion noise on this note).
  • 91-110 quick release velocities (fixes issues with the shorter release samples being too quiet in this region).
  • Various minor adjustments to ADSR curves and some minor volume tweaks on individual samples.
  • Added CC11 (Expression) control.

Piano in Blue is available for purchase for $99 USD. Requires Kontakt full version 5.3.1 or higher.

Indiginus has launched Bar Chimes, an instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt 4 and 5.

Indiginus Bar Chimes

Our versatile Bar Chimes sample library allows you to play sweeps, or glisses, in real time, rather than relying on pre-recorded performances. You can also use the automated GlissMaker, where you can adjust the speed and strength of your sweeps.

If you want to play melodically, the included Bar Chimes Celesta sounds enchanting! Or disturbing. You decide.

The library is available for purchase for $15 USD. It is also included in the Brio Percussion Ensemble library. Requires the full retail version of Kontakt 4 or 5.

Bela D Media has announced the release of Giovani Revive, an update to The Giovani Edition youth choir sample library for Kontakt, now featuring carefully re-mastered audio, finer vocal turnings and the utilization of advanced Kontakt scripting.

Bela D Media Giovani Revive

Discover this exciting and significant development in the world of sampled voice. The Giovani Edition was the first truly dedicated youth choir library determined to strike a chord with musicians ranging from the semi-pro to the most seasoned professional. Bela D Media has faithfully captured the glory of an authentic youth choir complete with 24-bit traditional church ambiance. The Giovani Edition sample library effortlessly produces a sincere, natural tonality alive with essential human characteristics.

Enlisting the talents of a professional 32-piece youth choir, the Giovani Edition had achieved a sampling first by incorporating both ensemble and chamber sized vocal sections, finally enabling the correct composition of choral parts using a sample library. In addition, Bela D Media was the first to acknowledge and sample a complete girls choir.

Giovani Revive is available for purchase for $175 USD. Requires full version of Kontakt 4 or 5.

Crypto Cipher launches Table Loops sample library

Crypto Cipher has released Tabla Loops, a new sample loop library in Kontakt, REX and WAV formats.

Crypto Cipher Tabla Loops

Whole concept of library was to record the “articulations in action” instead of recording fixed rhythm patterns, which is more expressive and inspiring than the same rhythms played at different speeds. This Library includes more than 1100 Performance samples ranging from “very short phrases” to “very long phrases” upto 37 sec long.

“Jagannath Singh” can hit 100′s of strokes within few seconds and to push the capability of performance we marked each transient stroke so that we can speed up the samples with more control.

Table Loops features

  • Articulation based tabla phrase library.
  • 1130+ phrases ranging from single shots to 37 seconds long phrases.
  • Phrases recorded at 70, 80, 90, 100, 110, 120, 128, 130, 140 BPM.
  • Custom script for Kontakt.
  • Special effects includes – Transient Control, Heat, Doubler and Global Tune.
  • Microtuning for each individual sample.
  • 7 custom impulse response reverbs.
  • Kontakt Instruments (Wav/REX), REX loops, WAV loops.
  • 44.1 kHz/ 24-bit format.

The library is available for the introductory price of $39 USD until October 30th, 2014 (regular $49 USD). The Kontakt format requires Kontakt 5.3 or higher, full retail version.
