Native Instruments releases Circuit Halo for Maschine

Native Instruments has announced the release of Circuit Halo, a new Maschine expansion library that combines intricately-sampled vintage synths and drum machines with contemporary patterns.

Native Instruments Circuit Halo
CIRCUIT HALO’s sound set combines multi-sampled synths, classic drum machines, custom glitch modulation effects, and new presets for the included MASSIVE and REAKTOR PRISM synths.

CIRCUIT HALO features a premium collection of samples from vintage synthesizers such as the Roland Juno 60, Casio VL-Tone, Prophet 5, Yamaha DX7, Sequential Circuits Pro One and Six-Trak, and a Korg MS-20. Each instrument was meticulously multi-sampled to capture the characteristic warm low end and idiosyncrasies such as pitch drift that analog equipment adds to productions. The combination of vintage sound with the latest in glitch modulation effects and arrangement styles gives producers a new way to blend classic sounds with production techniques.

The drum sounds in CIRCUIT HALO come from a mix of vintage and modern drum machines – many customized for a unique sound. Boutique outboard gear such as a classic 80s British talkback compressor and 1/2″ analog tape were used for detailed tone shaping and a good dose of warmth and character. Lush reverb reminiscent of the 80s sound was also used to add depth and vintage flavor to the expansion.

CIRCUIT HALO’s four Special Kits contain a wealth of glitched-out, grainy sounds, noises and sweeps, sound effects, and percussion and stabs. All-new PRISM presets provide organic leads, pads, mallets, and flutes while MASSIVE presets deliver textured, morphing leads, basses, and stabs.

A condensed version of CIRCUIT HALO is also available as an iMASCHINE Expansion for creating beats on-the-go. The iMASCHINE Expansion features two projects, four drum kits, and two multi-sampled instruments. Tracks can be exported to MASCHINE STUDIO, MASCHINE, and MASCHINE MIKRO for completion.

CIRCUIT HALO was created in cooperation with Danish sound design expert Joël Krozer of 6 Bit Deep.

Circuit Halo is available for purchase for $49 USD / 49 EUR / £44 GBP. Requires Maschine 2. The iMASCHINE expansion is available at the iMASCHINE in-app store for $0.99 USD / 0.89 EUR / £0.69 GBP.

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jun 27, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Roland has introduced the SH-101 PLUG-OUT, a software synthesizer for the SYSTEM-1.

Roland SH-101 PLUG-OUT software synthesizer

The SH-101 PLUG-OUT Software Synthesizer is a complete reproduction of the iconic SH-101 – right down to the fine details and odd quirks that make it one of the most popular classic synthesizers of all time.

Based on Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB) technology, it not only reproduces the SH-101’s legendary sounds, but faithfully recreates the very behavior of its analog circuitry – all with a level of authenticity that could only come from the company that created the original.

SH-101 PLUG OUT features

  • Total authenticity through face-to-face consultation with the original designers and relentless research beyond the original schematics.
  • Meticulously recreated oscillator and filter behavior – hallmarks of the SH-101 sound.
  • Authentic behaviors including the unique interaction between low pass filter and envelope controls.
  • Faithfully reproduces the unstable fluctuations that resulted from quirks in the SH-101’s circuitry.
  • Classic SH-101 synth sounds – bass, lead, noise, and sound effects.
  • Software layout features standard gray model, as well as red and blue models originally sold as limited editions.
  • Two envelope sections allow different settings for VCF and VCA while maintaining the option of classic SH-101 envelope behavior.
  • Reverb, chorus, delay and crusher effects that were not included in the original.
  • Run as many instances as your computer can handle.
  • Use SYSTEM-1 as a dedicated USB keyboard controller with lighted knobs and sliders that show only available parameters.
  • PLUG-OUT with SYSTEM-1 lets you take an authentic SH-101 wherever you go, from mobile production to live performance.
  • Transfer sounds between SYSTEM-1 and SH-101 with PLUG-OUT.
  • Supports Macintosh and Windows, and AU and VSTi formats.

The SH-101 PLUG-OUT synthesizer will be available to SYSTEM-1 users on July 24th, 2014.
