Goldbaby launches Dirt and Layers sample pack

Goldbaby Dirt and Layers

Goldbaby has introduced Dirt and Layers, a sample library featuring a collection of drum layering samples and dirt sounds for adding texture to your productions.

The dirt sounds can add subtle or not so subtle texture to your individual instruments or whole mixes. For example add some vinyl noise to give the impression that your instrument was sampled off vinyl. Add some tape noise to make your recordings sound like they were done on tape before noise reduction was invented. Use the damaged cassette noise to fake your cassette sampling skills.

The drum layering samples are a fantastic tool kit for augmenting and beefing up drum sounds. Give your drums more depth and texture by experimenting with different layers. Boost the bottom end of kicks with tuned subs or add a transient layer to help it cut through a mix. Crispen snares with various top layers or add body and substance using the sauce and body layers.

This pack is a treasure trove for experimenting and sound designing. With foley style SFX like footstep on gravel, plastic bag scrunching, glass beads dropping on drum heads, rattley door hits, movie style impacts…

Dirt and Layers features

  • 140 dirt sounds (24bit wav), including vinyl and tape noise, digital hash, guitar amp and pedal hum and more…
  • 800 drum layering sounds (24bit wav), including kick subs and sauce, snare tops and sauce, sucks, transients and more…
  • 50 Rex loops, including vinyl centre and locked grooves, wind up motors and dirt patterns.

The sample library costs $29 USD.

Propellerhead releases Reason 7 and Reason Essentials 2

Propellerhead has announced the release of Reason 7 and Reason Essentials 2, major updates to its award-winning music software line.

Propellerhead Reason
The latest versions inspire musicians to create more and better music with deep, streamlined mixing and a complete rack for all types of instruments.
Propellerhead ReasonPropellerhead Reason

Reason’s renowned music-centric design focuses around a virtual rack of software instruments, effects and processors connected to a world-class mixing console. Users can go from ideas to music, literally in minutes, designing their of the dreams in the process while never stopping their creative flow. Now, version 7 offers integration of all instruments—in and out of the “box”—with MIDI out. Automatic audio slicing and audio quantize enable quick fixes or style changes of recorded performances—even conversion of those recordings into REX loops for further creative possibilities in the rack. For mixing, Propellerhead adds a spectrum analyzer with visual EQ controls to “see” the audio and tweak equalization settings of any tracks in mixer. One-click group and parallel mix channels go beyond what is possible in physical large format mixers—instantly exposing the world of modern parallel effects and automation. And to inspire, Reason 7 makes importing audio from users’ music libraries and the web with support for mp3, aac, wma and more a snap. An enhanced Factory Sound Bank comes with tons of new loops and drum kits supplying the latest sounds ready to be thrown into tracks.

Audiomatic Retro Transformer takes its place alongside over 100 third-party instrument, effect and utility Rack Extensions (RE) already available for Reason. Designed for use on any instrument, channel or even group mix, Audiomatic oozes character to the sound. Inspired by retro phone apps, Audiomatic, with 16 snapshots going from Vinyl and VHS tape to PVC pipe and Gadget, immediately evokes an auditory mood, place or time. The RE is included free in Reason version 7 but is available to owners of Reason 6.5 and Reason Essentials too, as a separate purchase. As with any Rack Extension, all users can try a fully functional version free for 30 days.

Reason 7 & Reason Essentials 2 are now available at the following suggested retail pricing:

  • Reason 7 EUR €405 / USD $449
  • Reason Essentials 2 EUR €120 / USD $129
  • Reason 7 Upgrade (from any previous Reason version) EUR €129 / USD $129
  • Reason Essentials 2 upgrade from any previous version FREE
  • Balance (includes upgrade to Reason 7 for earlier versions of Reason) EUR €429 / USD $449
  • Audiomatic Retro Transformer Rack Extension (RE) EUR €39 / USD $49 (FREE for Reason 7 owners)

Purchasers of certain previous-version Reason products may qualify for a free upgrade to Reason 7.

The Sound Department – Austin releases Beat-Sliced Guitars for Kontakt

TSD Austin Beat-Sliced Guitars

The Sound Department – Austin has announced the release of Beat-Sliced Guitars, its first sample based instrument for Kontakt.

This is an innovative, dynamic, beat oriented guitar instrument set unlike any other.

It’s simple really – guitar played rhythmically in all the common note length variations and two playing styles, sampled and sliced so that it stays solidly in time with your host. Add some Kontakt magic like filters, delays and envelope loop patterns and voila – an incredibly expressive, inspirational and downright fun to play instrument! Multis extend the possibilities by adding a second or third instance with different keyswitch mappings so that more interesting and complex rhythmic patterns arise as different keyswitched note values are played against each other.

If you’re looking for an instrument that will let your guitar-slinger solos sound as close to a “real” guitar as possible (or as close as midi will allow), look elsewhere. What these instruments will do is provide a fresh and organic rhythmic timbre that is at once unique and familiar. No matter what your style, these instruments will give your compositions a solid edge.

Beat-Sliced Guitars features

  • 348 48kHz 24-bit sample loops per instrument (~180 MB uncompressed)
  • 29 notes (C1 – E3) and 6 common time values (whole, quarter, quarter triplet, eighth, eighth triplet and sixteenth)
  • Each note value and note length performed, sampled and looped for a 4/4 measure or more with two performance styles – staccato (or palm mute) and legato. Original loops are at 75 BPM but are sliced (ala REX files) so that they are useful over a wide range of tempos. We have also included a ’1/2-Time’ switch for programmers who like to double their tempo for finer resolution.
  • Velocity switches between staccato and legato playing styles.
  • Keyswitches control the note length values.
  • Performance controls allow you to easily map parameters like filter cutoff and delay amount to your controller.
  • Compatible with Kontakt 5.1 and later. Does not work with Kontakt Player.

Beat-Sliced Guitar libraries are available for the introductory price of $12 USD each (regular $18 USD).
