Samplephonics releases Nevo Analogue Machines for Kontakt

Samplephonics Nevo Analogue Machines

Samplephonics has announced the release of Nevo Analogue Machines, a virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Our goal was to create something as close to the analogue sound as possible, and keep it simple, functional, and straight to the point. We wanted all sounds to be solid and ready to use. Put simply, we wanted it to sound HUGE!

And we think we’ve done it! We’re extremely proud of this hybrid synth and have found it an incredible experience to build, and to use. A big thanks to Yoad Nevo for his expert synth advise and programming, and to everyone else involved in the production of this, especially Phil from Samplephonics, whose attention to detail and scripting expertise has enabled this idea to become a reality.

Nevo Analogue Machines features

  • Over 17,000 sampled analogue waveforms from a Mini Moog, JX10, SH-101, Oberheim M6R, Juno 106 and a Korg MS10.
  • Over 1,000 presets.
  • Multiple round robin layers.
  • Analogue style sequencer, arpeggiator, chord generator, custom stereo and chorus effects, envelopes, LFO’s and more!
  • Custom Kontakt 5 Interface, Logic Pro channel strip presets and a Reason Refil (available to download separately).
  • All sounds are 100% royalty free and available to use instantly.

The sample library is available to purchase for £89 GBP.

Francis Prève intros MS-20 Mini Simpler Sixpack

Francis Prève MS-20 Mini Simpler Sixpack

Francis Prève has released the MS-20 Mini Simpler Sixpack, a collection of 6 Simpler instrument for Ableton Live.

Korg’s MS-20 Mini has quickly become one of the biggest synths of 2013. Maybe even THE biggest synth of 2013.

With its full-figured filters and a semi-modular approach to sound design, the MS-20 has a sound that’s so beefy and unique that it’s earned a very special place in my studio.

Having tinkered with it for the better part of the summer, I figured it was time for another six-pack of Simpler patches. Since the MS-20′s filters are so distinctive, I focused on their sound as the basis for these presets.

The pack is a free download. Requires Ableton Live 8.1.5 or higher.

Liveschool free Ableton Live drum racks

Liveschool has released a number of free drum rack packs for Ableton Live.

Fairchild 808
  • Fairchild 808 — The samples were recorded by manager of Studios 301 and Ableton Certified Trainer Anthony Garvin as we were preparing for our next focus course on Mixing and Mastering. They were recorded from an original TR-808 through one of 301′s custom built DI boxes, and then patched through the Fairchild 670 via the SSL K-Series console, finally being captured into Ableton Live by an Apogee Rosetta 200 ADC. Multiple passes of some of the samples where made to include variations on each element, such as a short punchy kick, and the long-decay sub type kick.
Vermona DRM1 MKIII
  • Vermona DRM1 MKIII — Using the per-sound outputs on the Vermona, each sample was passed through a series of outboard gear suited to that sound. As with our 808 Drum Rack, some these samples were recorded via Studios 301′s very rare (and very valuable) Fairchild 670 compressor. Going beyond the Fairchild this time, we took advantage of more of 301′s outboard gear, and customised the signal chain for each new sound.
Korg Volca Beats
  • Korg Volca Beats — Over in Studio 2 at Studios 301, the samples were recorded direct from the Korg Volca Beats into an API 512c Lunchbox pre-amp, then through a channel of the SSL 9000k console for some slight compression and EQ, before being captured back in to Ableton Live with a Apogee Rossetta 200 ADC. It might be a consumer priced drum machine, but it was amongst some giants (with giant price tags) over at 301. It was pretty surreal hearing the Volca’s meaty analog kick booming through the Genelec 1039A main monitors in Studio 2.

The racks are available to download from Liveschool at no cost.
