Frontline Producer has launched Dubstep Metal Guitars, a collection of dark and deadly guitar loops, pulled from the pit and ‘tune ready’ for producers worldwide.
This time we equipped the studio with a Mesa Boogie Rectifier glued on maximum, a collection of axes and a gang of guitarists, that when you added up their combined ages, it mysteriously came to six hundred and sixty six
All we had to do was cautiously press record.
However, enough of the effort, headaches and bleeding ears that went into the creation of these masterpieces from below, what you actually want to know is what to expect in this metal monstrosity.
Audiority has announced Pills #1 – Metal Leads, the first title in the Smart Libraries series of sample packs.
Pills are small and smart libraries focused on very specific sounds featuring the same high quality and passion you find on all other Audiority products.
This first release focuses on Metal Leads for virtuoso keyboardists, devoted to the art of shredding. We programmed some of most great lead sounds found in this genre, making them perfect for both studio and live sessions.
Future Loops has announced the release of Headbangers – Metal Guitars, a sample pack featuring a collection of guitar loops recorded for Heavy Metal and Rock.
Headbangers – Metal Guitars was recorded live in a wide variety of tempos (from 90 BPM to 340 BPM) and features both Lead and Rhythm guitars.
With nearly 400 loops, Headbangers – Metal Guitars includes power chords, palm mutes, fast guitar pickings, striking, intricate solos, arpeggios and riffs. All sounds are heavily amped up and 100% royalty-free.
The title “Tiny Metal Impact” and the names of these four instrument categories alone should be enough to give you a clue as to what’s cooking. If you still don’t know, read on… otherwise just skip down to the demo track or the downloads.
The download is available as a sample pack and VST instrument for Windows and Mac.
Soundiron has announced the release of a major update for Rust 2, a metallic percussion sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Soundiron’s Rust 2 now features the Mega Mixer master preset.
For the brand new Rust 2 version 2.0 we went through all the previous presets with the due diligence of a true obsessive-compulsive. We tweaked key-mapping, zone mapping, fading and balance to really improve on the previous incarnation of this library in every way. We’ve designed a completely customized and automatable user interface that visually responds to your performance. Now each preset offers realtime control over every aspect of the sound, allowing you to shape note Attack and sample Offset to create gentle, ghostly pad-like sounds from even the harshest impacts. The Release control let’s you tighten the sound into a sharp staccato click or ping in one moment, or a long ringing sustain the next. Tuning is easy, with the Stepping and main Tune parameters. All of our most recent technological advances are included. Our powerful Uberpeggiator allows complex, adaptive arpeggiations and you’ll ﬁnd tempo-syncing resonant ﬁlter and volume LFOs build into nearly every preset. We’ve also included a parametric EQ and convolution reverb with over 50 room and FX impulses to choose from instantly.
We’ve also included our mighty Mega Mixer master preset, which lets you choose from any of the percussive elements in the library, load 10 of them dynamically, each with custom key-range, tuning and mapping to create your own ensembles, drum kits and tuned percussion orchestras. Finally, the Tuned Selector Ensemble presets give you instant access to sub-categorized collections of solo tuned percussion elements, with easy browsing and automatable instrument selection, while the standard ensemble presets lay it all out for you in convenient untuned drum-kits.
Rust 2 is available to purchase for $59 USD through December 12th, 2012 (regular $69 USD). The update is free for current owners of Rust 2.
In celebration of the updated, Soundiron has also launched a limited time sale for the Metal Collection, offering the bundle of Rust 1-3, Iron Throne, Tuned Artillery and Bronze Bin at a 35% discount.
Weighing in at nearly 12 GB of content, Metal Collection features over 300 flexible and intuitive Kontakt presets and over 12,000 samples.
For many of the presets, dozens of custom convolutions are integrated into the GUI and there is a range of automatable EQ, Reverb and sound-shaping to expand on the creative possibilities the libraries offer.
Metal Collection is on sale now for $149 USD through December 12th, 2012.
