Fingerpushers  Analog Stabs Bright & Dirty

Fingerpushers has announced Analog Stabs – Bright & Dirty, a sample library featuring stab sounds.

Analog Stabs Bright & Dirty is a library built on 100 stab sounds – 30 slow and 70 snappy – with a twist.

Apart from the clean unprocessed stabs, we also used two of our favorite hardware samplers to give the stabs the authentic feel of yesteryear. The samplers we used was the Akai S1100 and the original Ensoniq EPS. The sounds also passed through a quality analog mixing desk for an additional layer of analog goodness.

All in all, Analog Stabs Bright & Dirty contains 300 dry audio files. 100 samples from the Akai, sampled at 44.1 kHz, and 100 samples from the Ensoniq with a lofi sampling rate.

The Analog Stabs – Bright & Dirty pack is available to purchase for 9.90 EUR.

de la Mancha sets free Dirty Harry lo-fi synth plugin

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 07, 2013 - comment 0 comments

de la Mancha has announced that its Dirty Harry lo-fi synthesizer plugin for Windows is now available as freeware.

de la Mancha Dirty Harry
dirty harry is an unashamedly DIY lofi synth based on the samples of my two homemade, lofi noisemakers, the Atari Punk Console and the BugBrand WOM

dirty harry offers 20 unique waveforms in all their mono/monophonic glory. For extra grit the oscillators can be sync’d or ring modulated. Fidelity can be lowered further still with reduction in sample quality, distortion and a unique ‘bad contact’ emulation. 2 tempo sync LFOs allow modulation of filter, pitch and contact, with one LFO modulating the depth and frequency of the other.

There are envelopes for volume, pitch and filter, with different contours and pitch options. Throw in an arpeggiator, pitch drift and portamento and you can see that whilst it may be lofi in sound, it doesn’t lack for sound design features.

Dirty Harry is available to download as a VST plugin for Windows.

Seaweed Factory intros Casio SK-1 Rhythm and Tone Sample Pack

Seaweed Factory Casio SK-1

Seaweed Factory has launched the Casio SK-1 Rhythm and Tone Sample Pack, a free collection of samples.

Here is a sample pack of the rhythms and tones of an unmodified Casio SK-1 sampling keyboard. Though the sampling feature of this keyboard is wonderful, the lo-fi drums and tones are also pretty neat.

All samples were produced using a unmodified Casio SK-1 Sampling Keyboard. Normalization was used across multi-samples, but dynamics between notes are preserved. Some samples are labeled to indicate note or drum pattern. All eleven drum patterns are sampled at the default rhythm. The fill pattern for each rhythm is also available. Each of the eight built-in voices has been multi-sampled at octave intervals of the note C. Individual drum hits have been extracted from patterns.

The sample pack is a free download, commercial and non-commercial use allowed.

VST Buzz offers 50% off Wavesfactory Piano Bundle

VST Buzz Wavesfactory Piano Bundle

VST Buzz has launched a limited time sale on the Wavesfactory Piano Bundle, comprising two virtual piano instruments.

Old Tape Piano is a grand piano that has been sampled in mono using a low quality cassette recorder. It has a lofi vibe to it, without sacrificing dynamics and 8 velocity layers.

W-Honky is a vintage keys library that is similar to the “Mrs Mills” piano sound from Abbey Road Studios used by the Beatles, Elliot Smith etc. The sound was achieved by combining a vertical piano (Kawai from 1984) with a digitally processed metal sound for the attack. The signal is slightly detuned to achieve the honky tonk sound.

Both libraries require the full version of Kontakt 3.5 or higher (Old Tape piano is available in EX24 format also).

The bundle is available to purchase for $12.50 USD until July 16th, 2013 (50% off regular).

Soundiron releases Street Bukit for Kontakt + 4th of July Sale

Soundiron Street Bukit

Soundiron has launched Street Bukit, a Kontakt sample library featuring collection of 5 different buckets and 5 different pots and pans recorded in three ubiquitous urban environments: city street corner, open garage and a small apartment bedroom.

The Street Bukit is a deep collection of classic DIY (“Do-It-Yourself”) drumkit sounds that are found in improvised urban street performers’ drum kits.

Common to cities around the world, you’ll often find street drummers playing an ecclectic variety of large and small plastic buckets, pots, pans and other scrap and found objects arranged into a rough sort of drum kit. They play with marching or rock drum sticks, jazz brushes, mallets and hands, with specialized technique for producing kick drum sounds – they left the edge of a large bucket with the side of their feet and them stomp or drop it back down in different ways to produce unique lo-fi “bass drum” sounds. As raw a concept as this might seem, skilled street bucket drummers can be profoundly virtuosic, with complex, highly nuanced rhythms, grooves and cadences ranging from drum corps to break-beat to drum n’ bass to industrial and tribal.

Street Bukit features

  • 4,105 samples.
  • 2.40 GB Installed.
  • 22 nki Kontakt instrument presets (11 K4 / 11 K5).
  • 24 bit / 48kHz stereo PCM wav format.
  • Open format to allow user customization.

The Street Bukit library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $47 USD until July 12th, 2013 (regular $59 USD).

Soundiron has also announced its 4th of July Sale, offering a 20%–40% storewide discount until July 12th, 2013.

After a long gap, it’s time for another sample pack. This packs contains sounds from a Casio PT-10 mini-keyboard. Each of the 4 voices have been multi-sampled. I’m fond of the fantasy setting in particular.

Loops of the 10 different rhythms have also been provided at 2 different speeds. Enjoy this super lo-fi blip blast! I’m offering it free of charge again for commercial and non-commercial use, but please don’t redistribute the pack.
