Ueberschall releases Wonky Toys sample pack

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Mar 14, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Ueberschall has launched Wonky Toys, a new Elastik Soundbank featuring a collection of off-kilter sounds for unstable tunes.

Ueberschall Wonky Toys

The Elastik Inspire series brings you Wonky Toys, a sound collection that captures the character and mood of sub-genres such as wonkystep, streetbass, aquacrunk or purple sound. Wonky Toys includes drum and percussion loops to give you a complex, and sometimes unusual, rhythmic feel in a meld of hip hop and dubstep influences

Pre-mixed loops and single track drum recordings as well as additional drum mixes processed for a lo-fi and dirty sound will get you started while you can build your track with a range of dark and disturbed instrument loops and sound FX. Instruments include synth-based basses, chords, leads, arps, pads and FX while there are also more conventional instruments such as guitars, brass and strings to colour your sound. A series of sound FX, processed vocal samples, a huge variety of percussion and 8-bit sounds round out the collection giving you all you need to start your next wonky cut.

This 1.14 GB-Library does not contain conventional construction kits. Rather, Wonky Toys is a pool of ideas consisting of 445 loops to be freely combined. So to speak, this library is a single huge construction kit.

The sample library is available to purchase for 49 EUR.

HeadlessBuddha Samples releases Tape DD-10 free pack

HeadlessBuddha Samples has announced Tape DD-10, a free drum machine library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Tape DD-10
HeadlessBuddha Samples Tape DD-10 sampled instrument for NI Kontakt.

‘What a cool old dirty drum machine!’– Me about the Yamaha DD-10 when I first saw it some years ago.

This is really a charming lo-fi low cost 8-bit drum machine released in 1988 aimed at the home market and I really love it. I’m writing in first person because I wanted to get really personal about this one. This is one of my all time favorites and it’s the sample pack I use the most when it comes to drum machines.

Tape DD-10 features

  • 75 Samples (three round robins on each drum).
  • 1 Kontakt instrument.
  • 44.1kHz/24 bit .wav format.
  • All recorded through tape.
  • Bonus: 17 personal impulse responses to make your sound even more unique. One of them was even recorded through tape too.

The sample pack is a free download from the HeadlessBuddha Samples Facebook (no like required).
