Francis Prève releases free Moog Sub Phatty Simpler Eight-pack for Ableton

Moog Sub Phatty at Francis Prève

Francis Prève has released a free Moog Sub Phatty instrument pack for Ableton Live.

Moog’s Sub Phatty (the basis for their new Sub 37, incidentally) takes their Phatty engine and adds a sub-oscillator and new “Multidrive” circuits that are capable of some really in-your-face sounds.

Since I’ve been using it for close to a year, I figured it was time for another round of Moog-based Simpler patches. Because the Multidrive is so unique and the extra sub-oscillator adds textural complexity, I focused on those for this pack.

The Live pack is a free download. Requires Ableton Live 8.4.1 or higher.

Moog intros Theremini

Moog Theremini

Moog Music has announced the Theremini, a re-imagination of one of the oldest electronic musical instrument in history, and Bob Moog’s first love – the theremin.

Its design fuses the experience of performing with an instrument you don’t actually touch, with a powerful sound engine derived from Moog’s award winning synthesizer, Animoog. The Theremini guarantees immediate success to any player at any skill level, while providing new ways to experiment with music, education, and gestural control.

Assistive pitch correction allows each player to adjust the instruments level of playing difficulty. At the maximum position, the Theremini will play every note in a selected scale perfectly, making it impossible to play a wrong note. As this control is decreased, more expressive control of pitch becomes possible. When set to minimum, the Theremini will perform as a traditional theremin with analog heterodyning oscillator and absolutely no pitch assistance.

A built in tuner supplies real-time visual feedback of each note as it is played, as well as its proximity to perfection. This is useful for correcting a users playing position, or to educate younger players about pitch and scales.

The presets section allows you to select from 32 wave or wavetable-based patches, store a selected scale & root note, set and recall a specified playing range, and specify per-patch settings for the included stereo delay.

Recessed in the top of the Theremini is a compact speaker perfect for private rehearsal and quick setup anywhere. Silent rehearsal is also possible via front panel headphone jack. Simply plug in ear-buds or headphones and the built in speaker becomes silent.

For live performance and gestural control, the rear panel features two line level audio outputs, a pitch CV output with selectable range, and a mini USB jack for MIDI I/O and connectivity.

The Theremini will cost $319 USD.

Cluster Sound releases SONIX Live Pack

Cluster Sound SONIX

Cluster Sound has announced the release of SONIX, a multi-sample Live Pack based on the Moog Sonic Six, a rare and obscure analog monster from the early ’70s.

The Sonic Six sounds rough, aggressive, overwhelming and different from any other Moog synths. This is mainly due to some modulation capabilities not found in other non-modular Moogs. This obscure synthesizer implemented a diode ladder filter, a Ring Modulator, a Noise Generator, two discrete oscillators and two independent LFOs with separate rates and waveforms. The LFOs can be affected by the envelope generator and mixed into each other, allowing extensive and unusual modulation possibilities.

Sonix is based on 80 multi-sample recordings obtained by capturing 32 VCO combinations and 48 multi LFO settings. The recorded material is delivered through 144 Instrument Racks that range from rough leads to unusual polyrhythmic effects, ring modulated synths and exotic drilling sounds. Sonix contains also 800 Multi-Clips (multi-sample notes available as tuned audio clips) that allow to play 16 of the 48 LFO settings in sync with your track.

SONIX for Ableton Live is available to purchase for 29 EUR.

Loopmasters releases Classic Synthology sample pack

Loopmasters Classic Synthology

Loopmasters has announced the release of Classic Synthology, a 1GB collection of classic synthesizer sounds.

Classic Synthology from Loopmasters is a nostalgic trip back in time to the hot and sweaty cable strewn studios of yesteryear, when analogue synthesisers and rhythm machines resembling overgrown calculators carved out a whole new genre of music for the world to hear.

Recorded and produced by Harvey Summers at Broad Oak Studios, Classic Synthology takes its inspiration from many of the early electronic music pioneers including Vangelis, Kraftwork, Brian Eno, FSOL and Orbital to name but a few and is intended to be used by todays cutting edge soundsmiths looking for historical sounds from the analogue behemoths of the past.

This collection includes sounds of now legendary synths including Yamaha CS-80, Arp 2600, Minimoog, Moog Taurus Mk1, Korg MS20, Korg M1 combined with a select few modern analogue counterparts heavily processed through boutique vintage equipment including Neve and RCA pre amps, a classic, 70′s Raindirk series III console, Eventide H3000 D/SX and a AMS DMX 15-80S for a truly authentic vintage sound.

The sample library costs £29.95 GBP. Individual parts are also sold separately.
