Precisionsound releases Hedberg Travel Organ sample library

Precisionsound Hedberg Travel Organ

Precisionsound has announced the Hedberg Travel Organ, a sample library for Kontakt, EXS24, HALion & SoundFont.

The “Hedberg Travel organ” is a 4 octave Swedish folding harmonium made in Enskede, Stockholm, Sweden, around 1950 by “Hugo Hedberg”.

This instrument combines brilliance and simplicity in something that looks like an ordinary suitcase. But don´t let the appearance deceive you—it’s a great example of a completely acoustic, portable keyboard instrument.

With a warm and stable tone quality, different from both the accordion and bigger harmoniums, it will be a useful element in genres as Folk, Country and Jazz – but also in a simple acoustic guitar-vocal setup. The instrument has been used as a Missionary Organ, for playing psalms in outdoor services.

Hedberg Travel Organ in Kontakt
Hedberg Travel Organ with custom interface for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Hedberg Travel Organ features

  • 117 24bit WAV files, chromatically sampled and recorded in stereo. Range is C1 to C5 with the last note stretched to C6 so you get 5 octaves. Includes notes and release samples, as well as noise samples.
  • 2 programs for all versions of Steinberg HALion.
  • 2 programs for Logic EXS24.
  • 2 programs for NI Kontakt v1 and v2.
  • 1 program for NI Kontakt v3 v4 & v5.
  • 2 programs in the SoundFont format (16bit).
  • The SoundFont versions are 100% compatible with all virtual samplers supporting the SoundFont format like Dimension Pro (Cakewalk), Free SFZ player, NN-XT (Reason) and more.
  • Full version of Kontakt 3, 4 or 5 is required for the Kontakt versions (Free Kontakt Player not supported).

The sample library is available to purchase for $25 USD (+$11 USD for DVD).

Review: No Dough NDS-4 Underground House

No Dough NDS-4 Underground House

No Dough’s fourth release in the NDS sample pack series is titled Underground House.

Simply put, this is the heart and soul of the underground house scene in a massive collection of over 7000 professionally crafted WAV sounds, designed to give you that authentic House music vibe you hear from your favorite artists but in a format that is useful for any style of music that requires a punchy analogue sound.

The sample pack features:

  • 4,700+ drum and percussion hits.
  • 59 multi-sampled instruments.
  • 161 bass and synth loops.

The drum and percussion hits include various classic sounds of drum machines and sampled sources, with three variations; Original recordings, driven, vinyl and Revox (Studer tape machine) versions. No Dough used some various outboard gear to get an authentic vibe. Everything is nicely categorized in folders by the type of drum hit. No drum kits are included though.

To record the multi-sampled instruments, No Dough used gear by Oberheim, Roland, some old EMU samplers and FM synthesizers. The sampler patches are split up in various sections. There’s bass, strings & pads, leads & synths and organs and misc. A good amount of sounds.

The bass and synth loops sound very authentic as well. Actually, playing them individually they almost sound kind of low quality, lo-fi. But in a good way.

Loops are ready to be chopped, smashed, distorted and resequenced, each loop features a Recycle version and we have also included a selection of Midi files so you can get at the notes themselves to twist, mash and create.

I’d say that is a good thing, because these loops are meant for chopping. You are not going to get much of a good result by simply tossing the loops together as there are some tuning issues and files have no mention of which key they’re in. This set of loops just isn’t a construction kit type set so unless you stick with using just a single loop and create additional melodies around that, you are supposed to do some of the work yourself. The sound is there though.

Check out the demo track to get an idea of what NDS-4 Underground House is about.

So what do I think?

Product: NDS-4 Underground House by No Dough
Format: 24bit WAV, REX + sampler patches (Kontakt/EXS24/HALion/NN-XT)
Price: £39.99 GBP
Like: authentic sounds, good variety
Don’t like: no key info in loops
Verdict: 8/10

Even though No Dough prides itself in recording in high quality 96kHz/24bit, it’s still vintage synths, gritty sampler sounds, tape machines, and analog processing chains we’re talking about. NDS-4 is not about pristine quality, it is about the vibe of classic underground house music.

No Dough’s key description for the Underground House pack is “tone, warmth and musicality”. I hear that, and I would sum those up and call it authentic. Individually the samples and loops sound somewhat raw to me, lo-fi, perhaps slightly dated. And that’s how it is supposed to be, because once you start putting things together you quickly end up with something that sounds like the real deal. Go check it out.

The sounds of the Minimoog Voyager in a ReFill – ReasonBanks Voyager

ReasonBanks Voyager

ReasonBanks has announced the release of Voyager, an analogue synth ReFill based on the sounds of the famous Minimoog Voyager synthesizer.

VOYAGER refill provides vivid, dynamic and rich-sounding real analogue leads, bass, polyphonic keys and pads, giving you a new powerful synth in your Reason rack.

Our concept has never targeted the development of the 100% perfect software emulation of Minimoog: it is practically not possible. A sample library is a bit similar to the photo album: they contain series of snapshots. It will sound but never work as the original hardware. Bearing this constraint in mind, we wanted to create a synth in Reason that sounds like a real Moog, but acts like Reason’s instruments.

Voyager features

  • 1.78 GB multi-samples (over 2400 wav files) in 24 bit wav format.
  • All samples are perfectly looped and contain the unity note info for quick and proper automapping.
  • 124 REX loops: melodic bass, arp & noise sequences for KLP (keyboard loop player).
  • 339 NN-19 patches, 412 NN-XT patches, 128 Combinator presets.
  • Refill size: 1.22 GB (24 bit).

The ReFill is available to purchase for the introductory price of 28.80 EUR through June 2012 (regular 36 EUR). Requires Reason 6 or above.

Zero-G releases Modular Beats

Zero-G Modular Beats

Time+Space has announced Modular Beats a sample pack featuring a collection of real analog beats and kits.

This latest release from sample pioneers Zero-G is crammed full of stand-out beats and kits made from pure analog sources. No samples or drum machines have been used – the sounds and loops are 100% original and created using only modular synthesizers and analog monosynths.

The basis of each sound is oscillators and noise generators and you will be amazed by the diversity and invention that can be squeezed out of these huge, wonderful machines. From dance grooves to scary cinematic beats and, with all those analog drum kits, you´ll be able to make your very own fully analog loops in no time.

Modular Beats features

  • 3000 Acidized WAV files.
  • 850 AIFF Apple Loops.
  • 480 Stylus compatible REX2 files.
  • 328 instruments in EXS24, Kontakt, and Reason NN-XT formats.
