Samplephonics releases free Leeds Town Hall Organ sample library

Samplephonics has announced the release of the Leeds Town Hall Organ, a free virtual instrument sample library in collaboration with organist Dr Simon Lindley.

Samplephonics Leeds Town Hall Organ

Simon crafted 6 versatile presets for us and we began the painstaking process of sampling this incredible feat of engineering. Over the next few months we spent many evenings in the town hall recording every single note with multiple round robins and over 10 second note recordings to capture the true sonic character of the organ. The repetitive nature of the task actually became quite hypnotic and a strange bond began to form between us, the organ, the building and the very spirit of the city of Leeds.

Everyone involved in the project worked long hours and for free, so we felt that it was only right to give away the fruits of our labour and hope that the spirit of this incredible instrument could spread throughout the world and help people to craft wonderful music that moves people to do good things.

Leeds Town Hall Organ features

  • 3.2GB compressed content.
  • Contains stereo wav organ note recordings and sampler instruments for Kontakt 5, Kontakt 4, Ableton Sampler, EXS24 and Reason NN-XT.

The library is a free download at Samplephonics.

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).

Echo Sound Works releases EDM Drops & Boom Drums

Echo Sound Works EDM Drops for Massive

Echo Sound Works has announced the release ofEDM Drops V.1, a soundset for Native Instruments Massive, and Boom Drums, an urban drums sample pack.

EDM Drops V.1 for NI Massive is a comprehensive soundset that covers nearly every genre of EDM from Electro, Progressive, Progressive House, Dubsteb and Complextro.

Getting your drop to have the right sound and energy is one of the most difficult parts about producing EDM. With EDM Drops V.1 your drops will be sounding bigger and fuller in no time.

Every sound was tested out in a production environment and if a particular preset that we made didn’t strike any creative ideas, we tossed it. We made nearly 200 presets and kept only the best, most usable ones. You end up with 125 presets with all 8 Macros active so you can quickly change and tweak the sounds.

We’ve also included a ton of bonus items like the drum samples from the demo, 5 Logic X sessions and 10 MIDI files.

The soundset is available for purchase for $20 USD.

Boom Drums is a sample pack featuring both vintage and modern sounding drums.

Echo Sound Works Boom Drums

We recorded brand new acoustic drums and layered those with old school, vintage sounding samples. That means you get drums that have both a vinyl old school vibe and the punch of modern hip hop samples. To top it all off, we ran everything through an Empirical Labs Compressor for that “Boom”.

The Boom Drums come with 345 24 Bit WAV samples and has everything you need to freshen up your beats. Kicks, Claps, Snares, Hats and Percussion. We’ve even included 4 drum kits and some loops to get you started.

Boom Drums features

  • 75 kicks.
  • 80 snares.
  • 70 claps.
  • 80 hi hats.
  • 40 percussion.
  • 7 drum kits formatted for Maschine.
  • 15 WAV drum loops (24-bit) from the audio demos.

The sample pack costs $20 USD.
