Detunized releases Electromagnetic ReFill – Sounds from inside computers

Detunized Electromagnetic

Detunized has announced the release of Electromagnetic, a collection of ReFill Combinators and instrument patches that source their sounds from various computers upon booting, reading from CD-ROM, accessing WiFi, formatting hard disks or floppies.

All these often unwanted and disturbing noises where captured with several contact microphones and induction coils that revealed a deep look into the streams of electrons and bits. Once pulled to daylight it shows that these serenades of hums and crosstalks have far more potential than just producing a wall of buzz. So a good amount of the sourced noises is even capable of forming tunable sounds, rhythmic structures and sophisticated beat patterns.

Including 70 Combinators that are built up of 198 subpatches with access to more than 150 samples Electromagnetic addresses to sound designers and composers likewise.

Electromagnetic features

  • 70 Combinator Patches with multiple mapped controls and switches.
  • 2 Kong Kits.
  • 32 Kong Modules.
  • 158 NN-19 Patches.
  • 6 NNXT Patches.
  • 158 Samples (24 Bit, 44.1 kHz).
  • 230 MB overall content (extracted).

Electromagnetic ReFill is available as a download from the Propellerhead Shop for 29 EUR.

Audiotechracy releases free Rock and Metal drums ReFill

Audiotechracy Rock and Metal drums

Audiotechracy has announced the release of the Rock and Metal drums ReFill, a free sound library for Propellerhead Reason.

To get around the usual pit falls of drawing a drum track with a mouse I have completely avoided that and sampled some Rock and Metal drum tracks directly. I have sourced myself some isolated drum takes and cut these down into loops that are beat matched and synced perfectly.

I have used a noise gate to remove most of the mic bleed from the studio sessions and also the added digital reverb and natural reverb from the original recording as much as possible. This leaves you with around 170 free, dry loops to use in your tracks.

I have then divided these up into the sub folders of ‘Classic Thrash’, ‘Dark Breakdown’, ‘High Tempo Thrash’, ‘Nu Factory’, ‘Power Groove’, ‘Punk Drums’ and two sets of straight ahead rock samples.You can drop these wave files straight into any DAW you have that will accept the .wav format and play around with them as you wish.

Some people will be quite happy manually tempo syncing and beat matching these loops to their projects, however if you are a bit less confident about your ability to work with samples in this manner I have also converted them all into REX files for you!

The ReFill is a free download at Audiotechracy.
