New Atlantis Audio has announced the release of Drift, a new ambient ReFill for Reason.
Based on sounds from a top secret rack instrument from the NAA labs, our Clusterform project extracts spectral harmonic slices from a variety of sources at once, and resynthesizes them into new playable instruments, which we sampled the hell out of it to build you this amazingly gorgeous collection. Drift is hands-down the best ambient ReFill we’ve done. Hell, this is the best ambient ReFill anyone’s done.
If you need to breathe some seriously special emotion into your music and scoring projects, consider this your 50 gallon tub of extra thick organic secret sauce. Stir gently, cook slowly.

Root-sounds has launched Percussive Innuendo, a multi-format percussion library featuring over 2,000 samples mapped for EXS24, NI Kontakt, Reason NNXT and ProTools Structure.
You can never have too many percussion sounds. Percussive Innuendo is the perfect way to expand your existing percussion library with instruments or playing techniques not found in most libraries. For example, Tam-tam hits or rolls are great, but how about the dramatic effects you get from bowing and scratching for instant mystery or horror scores. For better blending, there are, of course, also normal soft and loud hits. We have also included some rare sounds, like a siren which is called for in very few orchestral scores (like Ionization by Edgar Varèse).
We were fortunate to be able to raid the percussion rooms of the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra. These sounds make up the bulk of the library, but you also get selected sounds from the collection of the University of Victoria, B.C., Mills College, California, as well as private collections.
Percussive Innuendo Gold edition (contains dry and wet versions) is available to purchase for $89 USD, a Standard edition (wet versions only) is $59 USD.
