Pure Shift Productions has announced the release of Eccentric Autoharp, a virtual instrument for Kontakt and Reason.
Eccentric Autoharp contains samples that are both plucked and strummed from an Oscar Schmidt autoharp.
Each of the 36 strings were sampled three times a piece and are mapped across the middle four octaves of the keyboard. The 12 chords of this autoharp were also sampled with three round robins.
When plucked, the autoharp has a very percussive sound that sits somewhere between a hammer dulcimer and a harpsichord. It can be used in anything from folk music to cinematic soundscapes.
Eccentric Autoharp is available to purchase for Reason and Kontakt 5, priced at $15 USD.

New Atlantis Audio has announced the release of Nightshift, a royalty-free cinematic sound and effects library designed to set a distinctly eerie and intense tone for your music and scoring productions.
Haunting outdoor scenes, steam-powered atmospheres, howling metallic drones and found sound machinery rhythms are just some of what you’ll find inside. With their gorgeous natural reverbs preserved, we captured the sounds of abandoned factories, an old steel mill, a machine shop powered by antique contraptions, steam tunnels, huge furnaces, acid baths, creaking chain lifts and more. One location even had its own spooky ass crow on the roof who makes an appearance, sometimes you just get lucky like that.
The material was processed in varying degrees to generate this one-of-a-kind collection of inspirational soundscapes, audio scenes, effects, rhythms and musical elements. The sounds range from quick, dramatic gestures and buildups, to deep evolving soundscapes that twist, turn and morph through environments, frequencies and textures – some nearly three minutes long! Also includes a bonus Reason ReFill with a selection of sampler-based Combinator instruments.
Nightshift costs $66.66 USD. The library is available at an introductory 25% discount for a limited time by using the social sharing buttons during checkout.

Tom Pritchard Sound Design has announced the release of ThorKit II for Reason 4 and above, the sequel to the popular ThorKit ReFill, featuring 200 new Thor patches.
ThorKit II contains 100 lush Chord patches, 50 evocative Polysynth patches, and 50 driving Sequence synths.
Chord patches use Thor’s Step Sequencer to mimic Chord Memory, a function found on some synthesisers whereby pressing a note plays an entire chord, resulting in some huge sounds. You can deactivate the chord with Button 1 and use these as 100 deep Polysynths if you prefer.
ThorKit II is available to purchase for £15 GBP.
