Future Audio Workshop releases Pro One Analog Bank for Circle

Future Audio Workshop Pro One Analog Bank

Future Audio Workshop has released the Pro One Analog Bank, a free soundset for the Circle software synthesizer.

This month Future Audio Workshop went retro, as we dusted down the original Sequential Circuits Pro-One synthesiser that we used to model Circle’s filter section and went about recreating the original factory patches which were contained in the original Pro-One owners manual.

This process involved first creating a patch on the Pro-One, analyzing the sound using frequency analysis tools, then matching the settings and tuning the sound so that they matched perfect between Circle and the Pro-One.

The Pro One Analog Bank for Circle is available as a free download.

Detunized releases Pro Uno Live Pack for Ableton

Detunized Pro Uno

Detunized has released Pro Uno, an Ableton Live sample library featuring sounds from the Sequential Circuits Pro One.

The Pro One belongs to the ultimate must-have synthesizers. Although it is a small monosynth that´s pretty straight forward to use it offers some unique features that clearly distinguish it from its early 80s competitors. As the only synth of its class the Pro One has a wicked modulation matrix that is often the source for countless and unique FX sounds. Combined with the LFO-driven arpeggiator/sequenzer unit the Pro One soon turns out to be an inspiring and always fascinating tool.

The Live Pack reincarnation includes more than 200 loops that are organized in three categories: Beats, Free Running, Riddmical.

Also included in the Pack are 21 instruments. Combined with Live´s sound shaping capabilities the Pro One gets lifted to the presence and is even playable polyphonic.

Pro Uno for Ableton is available to purchase as an instant download for 4.80 EUR. New subscribers pay 1.30 EUR.

Voltage Disciple Volt 80

Voltage Disciple has announced the release of VOLT 80, its third drumrack pack for Ableton Live.

We have built these racks from four unique synths. The Roland CMU-800 and SH-101. Sequential Circuits PRO ONE and The NORD MODULAR.

Each sample in the kit is 24bit and has been meticulously edited, layered and shaped in Wave Editor for a precision sound. Each drum sound has its own macro controls to further vary and shape the sound to taste. The kits also contain macro controls for subtle reverb,drive and heavy NewYork style compression. Some drum sounds use CORPUS to enhance the depth of the sound. The sounds are crisp, clean and solid and will punch through the mix. The pack also contains 40 midi clips to help you get started with these great sounds.

Volt 80 for Live/Suite 8.2.1 or higher is available to purchase as an instant download for $10 AUD.

Some interesting things I found recently:

# The Father of Drum Machines and the Father of MIDI Talk About Design and the Tempest

Dave Smith and Roger Linn (image by CDM)

Peter Kirn talks to the people responsible for one of the most exciting things over at the Winter NAMM show, the Tempest drum machine – Roger Linn and Dave Smith.

In songwriting, there was Rodgers and Hart, Gilbert and Sullivan. In music gear design, it’s hard not to assign a similar degree of expectation to the pairing of Dave Smith and Roger Linn.

Between them, these two designers have been a major part of what music technology is today. Dave Smith pioneered MIDI (even giving it its acronym), the first microprocessor-based instrument (the Prophet-5), the first programmable polyphonic synth, and other innovations at Sequential Circuits. Add to that landmarks in physical modeling research (at Yamaha) and the first PC soft synth. Roger Linn built the first programmable sampled-sound drum machine and with the LM-1, LinnDrum, Linn 9000, and his work on the MPC60 and MPC3000, introduced workflows and ideas in drum machines we now take for granted. It’s not easy to overstate the contributions of either designer.

# Zimoun : Sound Sculptures & Installations

This is Compilation Video V2.2 (updated January 2011) of sound sculptures and installations by Swiss artist Zimoun. I can watch this for hours.

Zimoun's sound sculptures and installations are graceful, mechanized works of playful poetry, their structural simplicity opens like an industrial bloom to reveal a complex and intricate series of relationships, an ongoing interplay between the «artificial» and the «organic».

He is interested in the artistic research of simple and elegant systems to generate and study complex behaviours in sound and motion. He creates sound pieces from basic components, often using multiples of the same prepared mechanical elements to examine the creation and degeneration of patterns.

More on Zimoun here.

# Emu Planet Phatt Hits

Cyberworm has another free sample pack out, featuring 61 Emu Plantet Phatt hit&stab sounds (wav+kontakt format, 24 bit, 44100 hz, stereo, 7 mb).
