Drum Broker releases Ultimate 808 by Erik Jackson

Ultimate 808

The Drum Broker has introduced Erik Jackson Presents – The Essential 808, a drum sample pack featuring the sounds of the Roland TR-808 drum machine.

Forget all other 808 Drum Kits! The Drum Broker teamed up with sound designer Erik Jackson to introduce an essential 808 Drum Kit designed and built from the ground up.

Erik meticulously sampled his Roland TR-808 through a Avalon 737sp, tweaking and recording every parameter on the classic Roland Drum Machine/Synthesizer. Paying careful attention not to alter the original sound and analog flavor of the TR-808, Erik ensured that he didn’t push the compressor too hard during the re-sampling process. Finally Erik created a kit that includes tuned hats, snares, and kicks. Each sample is labeled what note and key they are in.

The sample pack is available from the Drum Broker for $24.99 USD.

Sonic Cat releases Pop Synth for Kontakt

Related: , , , Posted in news on Apr 17, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Sonic Cat has launched Pop Synth, an 80s retro pop sound synthesizer for Native Instruments, featuring the sounds of the Roland JX-3P.

Sonic Cat Pop Synth

JX-3P is polyphonic synthesizer produced in 1983. But Pop Synth is a reinterpretation, not a restoration. Sonic Cat recorded all key ranges at 24-bit, and captured sound originality by sample looping.

Pop Synth is also an instrument for playback of the original JX-3P’s preset sounds. Pop Synth can play moods just like dual layers of JX-10 because it can make new sounds using the twin-engine system.

Pop Synth features

  • 312 .NKI Kontakt instrument presets for Kontakt 5.3+.
  • 1,951 samples.
  • 24-bit / 44.1 kHz .NCW format samples.
  • About 2.7 GB installed.

The Pop Synth is available to purchase for the introductory price of $35 USD until April 23rd, 2014 (regular $59 USD).

The Attic features

  • 10 Unique Instruments: Roland RS202 String Machine, Korg LP10 Analog Piano, Suzuki Omnichord, Jennings Univox, Minikorg 700s, Hammond Solovox, Synthi AKS, Roland SH2000, Godwin String Concert, Philips Philicorda
  • Authentic Analogue Sample modelling.
  • Over 350 Presets.
  • Kontakt Player Compatible.
