MrTheBigMan has released Padded Cell : Rebirth, a free 1.5 GB collection of rhythmic pads, one shot samples and performance loops.
Padded Cell has allowed me to release some of the most avante garde of sounds since its inception late last year and as one of the most downloaded products in the range, I wanted to take a look at it again and freshen it up a little.
The premise is simple, releasing top quality rhythmical pads that can be used in a variety of music but that can also be called ‘weird’.
Rebirth is the culmination of all of the hard work I have been putting into all of the sample-packs I have released over the last year and see’s a shift in not only the quality but how they can be easily used as beds for the best of tracks.
In this installment, I have not only included rhythmical loops for your use but also one shot samples taken from those loops and additional loops made from those one shot samples.
MrTheBigMan has released E|Loops XL01, a collection of free loops.
After wetting everyones appetite with the loops given away for free in E|Drums Mini Vol 2, I decided to start getting some new sounds together to use in my next set of records as well as in my next set of sample downloads.
I received quite a lot of things over the Christmas period that quite frankly, can be beaten with a stick.
E|Loops XL01 features
Full Mix Loops – 86 loops recorded at 120bpm – 219.5mb.
Kick & Snare – 144 loops recorded at 120bpm – 196.6mb.
Hats & Toms – 137 loops recorded at 120bpm – 213.3mb.
Tom FX & Found Sounds – 90 loops recorded at 120bpm – 158.1mb.
Multiples has released A|Bass Mini, a free sample pack.
A|Bass Mini was created completely from scratch using the Subtractor, Malstrom and Thor synths in Reason which were then routed through the new effects on offer in Reason 6 including the Line 6 effects and the Pulveriser.
A|Bass Mini features
5 separate sounds fully multisampled for the .wav users @81mb.
Full Reason 6 Refill including all created patches for each of the effects and synths.
Includes the samples mapped to NNXT and NN-19.
A|Bass Mini is available to download from MrTheBigMan at no cost.
Multiples has released E|Drums Mini Vol2 – The Loops, a collection of free drum loops.
So what do we do with single one shot sounds?
I make them into loops. I have taken all of the samples in E|Drums Mini Vol1 and loaded them into the Massive Drum Machine in Reaktor to create some of the most out there loops I have heard in a while.
E|Drums Mini Vol2 includes 30 loops at 120bpm and is available as a free download.
Multiples has released E|Drums Mini Vol1, a free drum sample pack.
Recently, I have been pulling together resources to create E|Drums XL which will be the culmination of the E|Drums series so far.
In doing so, I came across a plugin called the Dirty Panda Drumbox (pictured below) by CFA Sound which was given away free by Computer Music Magazine.
This is one of the first plugin’s of its type that I have used to create authentic Analogue drum machine sound and found it to be a real joy to use. Therefore, I thought I would wet your appetite for the E|Drums XL release by releasing a sampler of the sounds achievable by using this plugin.
E|Drums Mini Vol1 features
70 seperate sound in total covering Kick Drums, Lo and Hi Toms with FM percussion
Formats: .Wav, Battery, Reason ReFill.
ReFill includes 2 Kong patches and 3 NNXT patches, plus a a Combinator that links a ReDrum sequencer to Kong allowing you to write sequenced drum patches.
Battery version includes 2 patches (Raw & EMU SP1200 emulation).
E|Drums Mini Vol1 is a free download from Multiples.
