Toontrack updates Beatstation to v1.0.3 (incl. 64-bit Mac support)

Toontrack Beatstation

Toontrack has updated its Beatstation virtual instrument to version 1.0.3.

This update is recommended for all users but particularly for those running the latest operating systems released by Microsoft and Apple.

At its core, Beatstation marks the next step in Toontracks evolution of creating virtual instruments that are both simple and effective to use but also very powerful sound design & music production tools.

Changes in Beatstation v1.0.3

  • New Features:
    • 64-bit hosts support on Mac.
    • Support for EZX/SDX preset instruments as specified by the library configuration files.
    • A new Toggle Metronome option has been added to the Settings menu (standalone).
  • Fixed in version 1.0.3:
    • The crash on Japanese systems in Sonar should no longer occur.
    • A bug in the sample recorder causing crashes on Mac has been fixed.
    • A number of memory leaks have been fixed.
    • Fix for drag and drop to the plug-in in Pro Tools 10.0 or higher on Mac.
    • MIDI and REX grooves start from the beginning when not syncing to the host timeline and are played for the first time.
    • You now always get the same MIDI loop when dragging as the one that is played – no new random flam.
    • The default layout has been changed to 6×4 in the full version (as in the demo).
    • The instruments in the Sounds tab are now alphabetically sorted (except Bass and Lead, which are always at the top).
    • Clicking below or above the scroll handle should no longer shift the contents of the browser more than a page at a time.
    • Key 120 on the lead pad, a key with no function, is now hidden.
    • The mouse wheel now works on a secondary screen to the left of the primary screen (Windows).
    • Horizontal mouse wheel scroll support on Windows – shift+vertical wheel can also be used.
    • The standalone window position is now properly saved even if the window is minimized on Windows.
    • The standalone host now constrains the window position to the current screen size at startup.
    • The ‘Set Plug-In Path’ menu entry can now be found in the Settings menu in standalone mode.
  • Content update:
    • The default instrument has been improved for MIDI playback of our various drum MIDI.
    • Misc non operational changes (pad labels, etc.).

Beatstation for Windows and Mac is available to purchase for $129 USD / 89 EUR.

Toontrack has announced the release of new Roots Jazz and Blues Presets Packs.

Toontrack Roots Sticks Blues Presets

Roots Sticks Presets – Blues

Any Roots SDX owner can attest to the fact that the instruments in this recording sound flawless, that the signal chains used to record them would leave any engineer in utter awe and that the the sonic qualities of the Blackbird Studio A-room speak for themselves.

What some may have overlooked, however, is the creative power of the Superior Drummer mixer and built-in effects! These blues inspired presets will add multiple effects and take you, your music and the raw Roots SDX sounds on a sonic ride through the land of the blues, from big and roomy to ringy, damped or tight and small!

Take these presets as a shortcut to a finished sound or as a starting point to shaping your own mix!

Toontrack Roots BRM Jazz Presets

Roots BRM Presets – Jazz

The second you hear the first strike of a snare, a bass drum or the sonics in the Blackbird Studio A-room, you’ll know that the Roots SDX sounds speak for themselves.

What someone might have missed, however, is taking advantage of the large mixer and built-in effects to further hone and take this already sensational recording to some place utterly new. So, here is something to get you started: Jazz presets!

These settings will add compression, activate chambers, EQs and take the raw core sounds on a journey from small club-type jazz to far out and reverberant cinematic drums.

The presets packs are available to purchase for 12 EUR / $15 USD each.

Toontrack has released a MIDI update for its Roots SDX – Brushes Rods & Mallets sound library.

Don’t miss that all owners of the Roots SDX – Brushes, Rods & Mallets will find an extensive MIDI update in their user account. Subtly brushed ballads, uptempo big band and funky swing are all covered in this large collection of drum MIDI entirely customized for brushes, rods and mallets. FREE for all owners – don’t miss!
