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.

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).

ZenSound Pixelations for Zebra 2

ZenSound has launched Pixelations, a soundset for the Zebra 2 synthesizer instrument by u-he.

This soundset covers a wide range of 8 bit sounds. For making all the sounds I’ve used completely the modular capacities of Zebra 2, that gives to this soundset a retro and advanced modular taste.

This soundset is formed by keyboards, drums, basses, leads, atmospheres, SFX, sequences and arpeggios. All these sounds have an advanced 8 bit taste!

Pixelations features

  • 128 patches in Zebra 2 native format.
  • A guided installation in pdf and txt format.
  • All the patches are royalty free.
  • Includes free updates (volumes will be normalized and Mod Wheel control will be added in next free update).

The soundset is available to purchase for 14 EUR. Requires u-he Zebra v2.6 or higher.

Psychic Modulation Phonec

Psychic Modulation has released version 1.4 of its Phonec synthesizer instrument for Windows.

Phonec is best described as an ‘analog flux synthesizer’. Inspired by the mystique of video logo synth scores from worn out VHS tapes, Phonec was primarily designed with character in mind.

However Phonec is capable of producing a wide range of sounds such as vintage analogue tones, lo-fi synthscapes, ethereal pads, minimal techno sequences, and synthwave leads and basses.

Changes in Phonec v1.4

  • Overall sound improvements.
  • New Pulse Width oscillator modes.
  • Added new switch for retriggering the oscillator phase on each note; produces a much more solid sound; excellent for outrun style basslines.
  • New LFO & envelope targets: Filter attack/decay & pulse width.
  • Added invert switches to mod envelopes.
  • Sub Oscillator can now switch to square wave; produces a much fatter sound than sine.

Phonec for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for $39 USD.
