Rhythmic Robot has announced the release of SuperDrums, a Kontakt recreation of Korg’s first digital drum machine.
The 8-bit sampled SuperDrum DDM-110 was a small but powerful, easily programmable machine with a surprisingly sophisticated editing system for its time, and its sounds – while not exactly naturalistic – were punchy and thick.
The 8-bit, limited bandwidth sampling lends its tones a crunchy warmth that sits very well in electro and house styles, though it can work well in any contemporary track. It had nine onboard kit pieces, with an Accent control for extra variation. Notable among its onboard sounds are the kick, snare and claps, all of which stand up well nearly thirty years after the machine’s release.
In creating SuperDrums, Rhythmic Robot have sampled the original DDM-110′s kit pieces in both Accented and unAccented variants, and the UI allows the user to select either a hard swap between these tones or a crossfaded, graded transition from one to the other. A gentle low-pass filter with a 6db/octave roll-off allows the upper frequencies to be toned down, while an output limiter, saturation control and drive distortion allow the sounds to be roughed up beyond their already gritty 8-bit origins.
All 9 original kit pieces sampled at 24-bit quality.
Accented and Unaccented versions, with switchable crossfade.
Third “mid” Tom created for added versatility.
Full complement of effects for further sound variation.
SuperDrums for Kontakt costs £5.95 GBP. Kontakt version 4.2.3 or higher required (full version).
Synth Magic has released Sounds of the Delta, a sample library for Native Instrument Kontakt featuring the Korg Delta DL-50 analog synthesizer.
The Sounds of the Delta GUI for Kontakt, designed by Flavours of Lime.
Sounds of the Delta is a sample library of the Korg Delta Synthesiser. It also has all the raw oscillator samples which can be controlled in the same way as a real Delta.
The gorgeous analogue strings have also been sampled and when used in conjunction with the Delta sample library and raw osc’s gives a lovely synth stack of sounds. All samples are placed under the control of an intuitive graphical user interface and each section (Delta library, Raw Osc’s and strings) all exist in the same .nki file for convenience.
No messing around with loading different sections, or having to adjust Kontakt behind the scenes-Access the whole instrument from the same GUI. Loads of extra features added such as 9 LFO’s, Pitch envelopes, filter envelopes, Highpass and band pass filters etc. Has a full effects section which includes over 50 Impulse responses from classic reverbs such as Ursa Major Space Station. Also has a sixteen step analogue style sequencer.
The sample library is available to purchase for the introductory price of £17.95 GBP for a limited time (regular £24.95 GBP).
