H.G. Fortune NFG: Alphatron Pro & Atonoise 2 Pro FX now free

Related: , , , , Posted in news on May 06, 2013 - comment 0 comments

H.G. Fortune has announced the release of two new Nearly Forgotten Gems, the Alphatron Pro synthesizer instrument and the Atonoise 2 Pro FX plugin.

As every year: HGF Special May 6th News

Two Pro items added to the Free NFG + new Backlist with new bundle! NFG = Neraly Forgotten Gems

H.G. Fortune Alphatron Pro
The Alphatron Pro virtual synthesizer instrument plug-in.

Alphatron is not just a simple VA synthesizer instead in using a 3rd oscillator with digital waves it does offer a lot more variation. Thus it can do analogstyle sounds reminding of the old Moog and Prophet days but also merge this with the digital realm in various ways to achieve sounds beyond.

H.G. Fortune Atonoise 2
Atonoise is great for creating some spooky, Sci-Fi type sounds.

Atonoise 2 is a widely enhanced version of prior Atonoise and is basically built around the modified Mystify processors of the Avatar ST VSTi Synth. Thus it can mangle up sounds to a great extend beyond recognition. It can be used on virtually any kind of sounds like vocals, drumloops, tracks and is even suited for deep sample processing if very few til no modulation is involved.

Both plug-ins are now available as freeware VST plug-ins for Windows.

Les Productions Zvon releases Memory Collection Pack 05 – Sci-Fi and Aliens

Memory Collection Pack 05 - Sci-Fi and Aliens

Les Productions Zvon has released Sci-Fi and Aliens, the 5th Memory Collection series sample pack, featuring a collection of samples from public domain movies.

1 750 samples for a size of 1.44 GB. The samples in this collection are taken from 10 Public Domain science fiction movies. Please note that the samples are not mapped in any way or in any specific sampler format.

The samples are from 10 Public Domain science fiction movies from the 1930s to the 1970s. So they cover different styles of soundtracks. I was surprised by the quality of the soundtracks in general. They featured early electronic music with a creative mix of various types of sound sources. Just listening
to the samples is fun and it also is a lesson in the history and evolution of sound design in movies (IMHO).

The sample library is available as donationware with a minimum donation of $20 USD. A bundle of Memory Collection packs costs $50 USD.

Hollow Sun Altaerion Sci-Fi sound library for Kontakt released

Hollow Sun has announced the release of Altaerion, a new “Music Laboratory Machines” sound library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Hollow Sun Altaerion

Once again, we have requisitioned an ageing relic which we have re-fashioned for our purposes. This time, from a 1950s of the future where science fiction and science fact were somewhat blurred … a portable communications device intended for an over-ambitious and abandoned manned mission to Mars…

With two oscillators offering a wide variety of true analogue, ring modulated waveforms which can be tuned and mixed, modulated further by a multi-wave LFO and envelope as well as FM and AM modulated, there’s a broad palette of sounds to play with and mix and match before these pass to an ADSR envelope and an array of speaker simulations and lo/hi cut filters to create a wider range of antiquated, retro sci-fi sounds that could have originated in an old black and white B-movie or the early experimental electronic music studios of Europe.

These then pass to a comprehensive chain of effects comprising distortion, chorus, phase shifting, echo and a convolution reverb featuring a wide range of impulses.

Furthermore, touch the ‘scope/sonar/radar in the centre of the panel and Altaerion will come up with a randomly generated sound for you. Not just that but touch it in the effects page and it will generate a new effects configuration at random. Between them, Altaerion will create good starting points for you to tweak and take you in creative directions you might not have thought of. All good fun!

Hollow Sun Altaerion
Altaerion features a custom Kontakt interface resembling a portable communications device.

Altaerion features

  • 48kHz/24-bit.
  • Advanced Retro Synthesis Engine
    • Two oscillators.
    • True analogue ring modulated waveforms.
    • Serendipity ‘scope for random patch creation.
    • ADSR envelope.
    • Multiwave LFO, envelope and FM/AM modulation.
    • Distortion, chorus, phaser and echo multi-FX.
    • Convolution reverb with a wide range of impulses.
    • Speaker sim combinations for vintage lo-fi tones.

The sound library is available to purchase for £10 GBP.
