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.

Hideaway Studio releases 6-Trax for Kontakt

Hideaway Studio has released 6-Trax, a synthesizer instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Hideaway Studio 6-Trax

As is so often with my ever growing collection of vintage synths at Hideaway, Six-trak number 1551 came in dead and was singing sweetly again after a few days of attention on the slab armed with the oscilloscope and soldering iron.

Having rescued this little beasty from the grave I was confronted with an empty patch memory so I set about programming up 100 new patches which resulted in a mammoth sampling session rendering over 4Gbytes of material that was auditioned in Kontakt. Having cherry picked some 70 or so of my favorites I set about looping some 870 or so samples and programming up 100 new instruments in Kontakt.

6-Trax features

  • 871 24-bit Samples.
  • 69 Example Instruments.
  • 31 Example Layered Multis.
  • User Manual.
  • Audio Demo.

The library is available for purchase for £10 GBP. Requires full version of Kontakt 4.2.4 or higher.

Zenhiser releases Prophet 5 FX sample pack

Zenhiser Prophet 5 FX

Zenhiser has launched Prophet 5 FX, a sample pack featuring sound fx samples from the Prophet 5 synthesizer by Sequential Circuits.

We love our retro gear here at Zenhiser so it was only a matter of time before Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 synth made it into our catalogue. With a wealth of analogue sounds within this synth monster we decided the best and most usable sounds to add to a new sample pack would be the fx sounds. Prophet 5 makes some obscene fx sounds, white noise risers, pulsating rhythm fx sounds, space infused swirls, choppy lifts, sharp drops and a whole chunk more.

The great thing about ‘Prophet 5 FX’ is all the fx samples are suited to just about every genre out there, from Trance through to Dubstep, Techno to D&B, it really doesn’t matter what you create this is a serious fx pack. 378 perfectly crafted and mastered fx sounds from Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 2 is what you get in this Zenhiser pack, it’s a fast way into the analogue synth domain without having to pay a fortune. Every sample has been crafted, programmed and chopped to perfection using a perfect Prophet 5 specimen so all you have to do is drop the sample group into your DAW or sampler and you’re ready to go, it’s that simple.

The sample pack is available to purchase for $30 AUD.

Synth Magic releases Black Widow synth library for Kontakt

Synth Magic Black Widow

Synth Magic has announced Black Widow, a synthesizer and sequencer instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Our latest instrument, based on sounds taken from various analogue synths including Moog Sonic 6, Yamaha CS20M and passed through various analogue filters and vintage valve pre-amps to twist the sounds into new exciting waveforms.

Big analogue sounds pour from Black Widow with ease thanks to passing some of the samples through vintage valve pre-amps and pushing them hard to make sounds that have depth and bite to them.
Black Widow has two OSC’s comprising of 26 waveforms which can be selected via the waveform menu system. All sounds are loaded into the instrument at once and can be selected via the user interface and mixed together using the variety of controls in the user interface.

Easily create biting bass and lead sounds, gorgeous analogue pads and strings, off the wall analogue synth sounds and effects.

Black Widow also comes with a new sequencer. The inspiration for this sequencer came from the sequential Circuits Pro-One synthesiser. Black Widow’s sequencer has lot’s of extra twists and the ability to sequence waveforms. The Black Widow sequencer has been scripted from scratch and allows you to key in notes from your midi keyboard.

The Black Widow library is available to purchase for the introductory price of £20 GBP (regular £25 GBP). Requires full version of Kontakt 5.2.1 or higher.
