Samplephonics releases Lo-Fi Garage & Breaks + 30% off all purchases

Samplephonics Lo-Fi Garage & Breaks

Samplephonics has announced the release of Lo-Fi Garage & Breaks, a sample pack featuring 500+ syncopated drum rhythms, deep and soothing pads and synth lines, dark dirty basslines and all the one shot tools you need to create lo-fi, resampled garage and breaks.

Packed full to the brim of inspirational material, this sample library is a perfect toolbox for layering rhythms, creating new loop structures and resampling musical elements to give that grainy, lo-fi sound championed by the likes of Burial and Four Tet.

Forget that clean in the box sound and enter the realm of crushed, resampled and downright dirty loops and samples.

The sample library is available to purchase for £34.70 GBP.

Samplephonics has also announced that it is offering a 30% discount on all purchases for a limited time.

We know the first month back after Christmas can be a little tough – cold weather (well for us Brits anyway!) short days and a bit more extra baggage left over from Christmas… perfect excuse to lock yourself in the studio we think! So as an added incentive to push forward that music making, here’s a little winter discount, exclusive to our email subscribers!

Use coupon code winterwarmer9823 at checkout to take advantage of this offer (coupon can be used multiple times). The sale ends February 15th, 2014.

Point Blank intros free Monster Timestretch device for Ableton Live

Point Blank has announced Monster Timestretch, a free Max for Live device for Ableton Live by Daniel Herbert.

The new Max for Live device from Point Blank is a timestretching plugin based on a technique known as phase vocoding and can time stretch sounds in realtime. It’s similar to the fantastic Paul Stretch and is ideal for creating slowly evolving drone-like textures as well as more futuristic sounds.

There are four different modes which allow you to play through and explore the sound in a variety of ways and literally freeze the sound.

The plugin is limited to processing the first 30 seconds of an audio file and only works within Ableton as a M4L device and will not play in any other DAW. We recommend you use resampling if you need to record the effect to a new audio file.

The plugin is a free download at Point Blank.
