Aly James Lab releases vLinn LM-1 drum synth

Aly James Lab has launched vLinn LM-1, a virtual Linn LM-1 drum instrument for Windows.

Aly James Lab vLinn LM-1

The VLINN LM-1 DRUM VST provides the closest experience to the real thing because it is not based on samples, instead it accurately models the clocks and counters that reads EPROMS memory feeding the AM6070 DACs to decode the EPROMS data in realtime, models the CEM 3320 filters with tweakable control over the CV pulses shapes to let more or less transient pass through unfiltered or completely bypass them, special hihat circuitry and VCA providing different hihat sound on each trigger and decay control, separate tuning for all voices with already a wider range without tweaking the electronics…separate outputs for your DAW, velocity handling etc…

You will maintain that raw sound at every tune! On top of the cake 7+1 voices can be replaced with external EPROM data like on a real machine… Opening up a whole new range of sound, still being processed by the circuitry.

The plugin is available for Windows (VST), for a minimum donation of 15 EUR.

ToneBuilder offers Facebook fans free Linn & DMX drum kits

Tonebuilder at Facebook

Tonebuilder has announced a free sample pack featuring two free drum kits with LinnDrum and Oberheim DMX sounds.

I just uploaded/completed 2 new FREE electronic drum kits. These two feature the classic Linn + DMX sounds made famous by many… but I always think of Prince and Kurtis Mantronik.

The kits are aptly titled ARTIST and TRONIX. I tried to make them as much load and go as possible. Try them out with just some light buss-compression and/or EQ.

Free drum kits features

  • 32 samples in 24-bit/96kHz WAV/AIF, 16-bit/44.1kHz WAV.
  • 2 Maschine Kits.
  • 2 Kontakt Programs.
  • 2 EXS-24 Programs.
  • 2 Geist Kits.
  • 2 Guru Kits.

The sample pack is a free download for ToneBuilder Facebook fans.

If you like these samples make sure to check ToneBuilder’s Driven Machine Drums Strikes Back, a limited edition sample library featuring over 2,000 premium designer drum samples.

ToneBuilder releases Driven Machine Drums Strikes Back sample library

ToneBuilder has released Driven Machine Drums Strikes Back, a drum and percussion sample library.

ToneBuilder Driven Machine Drums Strikes Back

“What if a time-capsule was discovered that contained never before heard drum machines… With the classic character of the 909, 808, 707, SP1200, Drumulator, and Linns…”

“What if Don Buchla created a drum machine…”

“What if that time-capsule also contained a drum machine from the future…”

These are the questions I had in mind, a game I played, during the creation of Driven Machine Drums Strikes Back. But the real questions are what would you do today with these sounds, what genres could you invent, who’s mind could you blow?

A few people enjoyed Driven Machine Drum and wrote in asking me to continue working on sound design, so I decided to sell a large portion of my kit and double down on some of the best analog and digital synthesis technology available today… if not the best.

DMD Strikes Back features

  • 2072 Premium Designer Drum Samples.
  • 24-Bit/96kHz WAV, 24-Bit/96kHz AIF.
  • Intelligently organized and labeled for optimal creative work-flow.
  • 16-Bit/44.1kHz WAV, featuring premium dithering/SRC and 8 character names for classic samplers such as the MPC and Akai series.
  • 22 FXPansion Geist and Guru Kits.
  • Deluxe Edition: Logic EXS-24 programs (also compatible with Digidesign’s Structure).
  • Deluxe Edition: Native Intruments Kontakt programs.

Driven Machine Drums Strikes Back is available to purchase for the introductory price of $69 USD (Standard Edition) $77 USD (Deluxe Edition) until October 31, 2011.
