Dubspot has announced it continues to grow in 2012 with cutting-edge classrooms and new courses.
Over the past few years, Dubspot has grown from a single classroom in New York City’s West Village to a global institute, attracting students from all around the world. This rapid growth has led us to expand our course offering from Dubspot Online and build a whole new floor in our New York facility with four state of the art classrooms.
Each room is acoustically treated and equipped with the latest music technology for music production, sound design, mixing, software – based mastering and electronic music performance. Classes are kept intimate so that each student can work with our instructors to find and sculpt his/her own sound.
We are very proud of our new classrooms and hope you will come explore them for yourself. In the meantime, take a look at this video along with the photos below to catch a glimpse of the expansion process and see what we have been up to.

u-he has announced Alexander Hacke: NYC, a soundset featuring 150 sounds for the Zebra2 synthesizer for Mac and Windows.
New York City is the new patch bank for Zebra2 by Alexander Hacke, of the famous German post-industrial band Einstürzende Neubauten. Hacke’s work has influenced many musicians around the world, and the musical genre Industrial would certainly not be the same without him!
In this amazing patch collection, Hacke combines his love for New York City with his love for Zebra2. A musical hommage, a cinematic soundtrack that captures the flavor of various New York locations. Some sounds are playable chromatically, others tell an entire story within a single note. Some smirk at you ironically, others evoke the strangest of emotions. Always read the patch info, and always try the XY controls for extra expression!
For some this will be the ultimate synaesthetic guide to the Big Apple, for all others it will be the most unusual collection of individual sounds and loops they have ever heard from Zebra2.
Alexander Hacke: NYC for Zebra2 is available to purchase for $39 USD excl. VAT.
