Nucleus SoundLab releases Analog Theory for MonoPoly

Nucleus SoundLab has announced the release of Analog Theory, a new ReFill for the MonoPoly synthesizer Rack Extension instrument from Korg.

Nucleus SoundLab Analog Theory

Virtual Analog has come a long way. Take Korg’s MonoPoly Rack Extension for example. Not only does it replicate the capabilities and sounds of this classic hardware synthesizer, but it exceeds the original with features like true polyphony and unison. In fact, MonoPoly is the perfect starting point for creating next-gen electronica timbres in Reason! It’s only drawback is that it doesn’t come packed with any Combinator patches whatsoever. Let’s fix that, shall we? Introducing our latest ReFill – featuring MonoPoly – Analog Theory.

Analog Theory is a ReFill that pushes the boundaries of what is possible with Virtual Analog in the Reason environment. Our experienced sound design team has fused the classic power of MonoPoly with the flexibility of the Reason Combinator to create some very unique sounds. MonoPoly is filled to the electronic brim with thick chordal layers, expressive plucks, dubstep growlers, and gated atmospheres.

You won’t be disappointed with Analog Theory’s attention to detail. All the standard highlights of Nucleus SoundLab ReFills are still present: Unique Combinators with unique Combinator controls; MonoPoly patches that make up each Combinator are individually available; full categorization of both Combinators and device patches; careful volume-balancing for every single patch. Power-up your music with Analog Theory today!

Analog Theory features

  • 113 unique Combinators across ten categories.
  • 163 MonoPoly device patches.
  • 2 demo songs packed inside the ReFill.
  • All Combinator rotaries/buttons/modwheel uniquely mapped.
  • Patches designed by veteran Reason sound designers.
  • Requires: MonoPoly Rack Extension.

The Analog Theory ReFill is available for purchase for $39 USD.

Native Instruments releases Circuit Halo for Maschine

Native Instruments has announced the release of Circuit Halo, a new Maschine expansion library that combines intricately-sampled vintage synths and drum machines with contemporary patterns.

Native Instruments Circuit Halo
CIRCUIT HALO’s sound set combines multi-sampled synths, classic drum machines, custom glitch modulation effects, and new presets for the included MASSIVE and REAKTOR PRISM synths.

CIRCUIT HALO features a premium collection of samples from vintage synthesizers such as the Roland Juno 60, Casio VL-Tone, Prophet 5, Yamaha DX7, Sequential Circuits Pro One and Six-Trak, and a Korg MS-20. Each instrument was meticulously multi-sampled to capture the characteristic warm low end and idiosyncrasies such as pitch drift that analog equipment adds to productions. The combination of vintage sound with the latest in glitch modulation effects and arrangement styles gives producers a new way to blend classic sounds with production techniques.

The drum sounds in CIRCUIT HALO come from a mix of vintage and modern drum machines – many customized for a unique sound. Boutique outboard gear such as a classic 80s British talkback compressor and 1/2″ analog tape were used for detailed tone shaping and a good dose of warmth and character. Lush reverb reminiscent of the 80s sound was also used to add depth and vintage flavor to the expansion.

CIRCUIT HALO’s four Special Kits contain a wealth of glitched-out, grainy sounds, noises and sweeps, sound effects, and percussion and stabs. All-new PRISM presets provide organic leads, pads, mallets, and flutes while MASSIVE presets deliver textured, morphing leads, basses, and stabs.

A condensed version of CIRCUIT HALO is also available as an iMASCHINE Expansion for creating beats on-the-go. The iMASCHINE Expansion features two projects, four drum kits, and two multi-sampled instruments. Tracks can be exported to MASCHINE STUDIO, MASCHINE, and MASCHINE MIKRO for completion.

CIRCUIT HALO was created in cooperation with Danish sound design expert Joël Krozer of 6 Bit Deep.

Circuit Halo is available for purchase for $49 USD / 49 EUR / £44 GBP. Requires Maschine 2. The iMASCHINE expansion is available at the iMASCHINE in-app store for $0.99 USD / 0.89 EUR / £0.69 GBP.

Korg has announced the release of the SDD-3000 Pedal, a digital delay unit.

Korg SDD-3000 Pedal

The rack-mounted SDD-3000 which appeared in 1982 was a classic digital delay that dominated the world thanks to its peerless sonic character. The classic delay effect that’s central to the guitar sounds in world-class rock bands owe a great deal to the SDD-3000, which has been the driving force behind numerous famous songs over the years.

The SDD-3000 PEDAL packs all of the SDD-3000′s functionality into a convenient pedal unit. Featuring a pre-amp with ample headroom, a filter circuit that modifies the feedback sound, and modulation waveforms that allow a diverse array of delay effects, it covers all of the SDD-3000′s important elements. In addition to specifications that will satisfy SDD-3000 users, it provides many new functions such as eight delay types, long delay times up to 4,000 milliseconds, selectable modulation waveforms, stereo input/output, and MIDI compatibility. The user interface has also been updated for dramatically improved ease of use.

SDD-3000 Pedal features

  • All features of the legendary SDD-3000 digital delay, packed into a pedal unit.
  • Eight distinct delay types including SDD-3000, Analog, Tape, Modern, Kosmic, Reverse, Pitch and Panning.
  • The preamp that defined the sound of the SDD-3000 is faithfully reproduced.
  • Selectable filters that alter the sound of the delay repeats.
  • Choose from five types of modulation waveforms that modulate the delay time. You can also create waveforms that interpolate between two types, and make fine adjustments to the waveform.
  • Use special sound-shaping techniques such as flanging, chorus, vibrato, doubling, and Doppler effects.
  • A wide range of delay times is available, from 1 millisecond to long delays with a maximum of 4,000 milliseconds.
  • Sync mode lets you specify the delay time in terms of 11 different note values ranging from whole notes to 32nd notes.
  • A total of 80 programs (40 banks x 2 channels) can be saved.
  • LCR function lets you create multi-tap delay effects.
  • MIDI connectors are provided, allowing you to trigger program changes from an external device, or to transmit program data as a bulk dump to and from other units.
  • Seamless bypass and program changes allow you to retain the reverberant sound when switching sounds.
  • Reliable true bypass design.
  • An optional expression pedal can be used to control multiple effect parameters simultaneously.

The SDD-3000 Pedal is available for purchase for SSP £329.99 GBP ex VAT.

Loopmasters has released DNA Synths – Korg MonoPoly, the first sample library in a new series aimed at sound designers, vintage synth enthusiasts and any producer looking for authentic vintage synth sounds on a budget.

Synth DNA - Korg MonoPoly

In the Loopmasters studios we have had the privilege to sample, use, admire and abuse many different synths over the years and so finally the DNA series is born. The concept behind this brand new royalty free collection is simple, to focus on the building blocks of great sounding vintage synths by multi sampling the raw analogue waveforms with subtle use of filter only so once loaded into your favourite soft sampler, you can go to town with modulations and effects.

First up for the DNA series is the incredible Korg MonoPoly first launched in 1981, it was one of the last 100% analogue synths to hit the market and is very much a pro synth. It has all the features you would expect to find on a large modular system including 4 very fat VCO’s which can be shared in 4 voice Polyphonic mode or linked in Unison for a versatile monophonic lead.

Synth DNA – Korg MonoPoly features

  • 1.5 GB content, 24-bit/44.1kHz.
  • Multi sampled instruments with 3,200 samples.
  • Includes 8 x 1 oscillator multis, 7 x 2 oscillator multis, 5 x 3 oscillator multis, 7 x 4 oscillator multis, 15 custom bass multis, 8 custom lead multis, 4 raw oscillator multis.
  • 54 soft sampler instrument patches for Kontakt, HALion, ESX24, NN-XT, sfz and Ableton Live 9 Simpler rack presets.
  • 800 MB of bonus material within an Ableton Live 9 Set.
