Time+Space intros AfterShock by Zero-G

Time+Space has announced AfterShock, a new sample library by soundtrack composer, dj and experimentalist Si Begg.

Zero-G AfterShock

The producers wanted to make a sound library that would sonically stand apart from the many existing cinematic/ trailer style collections. This has been achieved by using the palettes of cutting edge dance music and taking those into a cinematic realm whilst making sounds that are fresh, intense, exciting and boundary-breaking. Inside the collection you’ll find abstract events, atmospheres, ambiences, hits, sweeps, risers and effects, morphs and transforms, drones and tones and lots more

The library contains 600 samples in both Acidized Wav and AIFF file format all recorded in stunning 24bit audio. Kontakt 5.4.2 files, EXS24, HALion and NN-XT instruments are also included. All the samples in this library are 100% original and royalty-free for your musical use without any additional licensing fees.

AfterShock features

  • 600 samples in both Acidized Wav and AIFF file format.
  • Over 2.1GB total library size.
  • Kontakt files also included.

Aftershock – Extreme Audio Cinematics is available from Time+Space for £55.95 GBP/72.95 EUR including VAT.

Time+Space intros Extreme Environments by Zero-G & Si Begg

Zero-G Extreme Environments

Time+Space has announced the release of Extreme Environments, a soundscape creator instrument library by Zero-G and Si Begg.

Zero-G Extreme Environments combines a state-of-the-art Kontakt user interface with loops and impulse responses to produce a highly flexible tool for creating very rich, detailed and hyper-real sounds – from beds and drones to actual pads and instruments you can play.

Produced by Si Begg, the sound design supremo behind other Zero-G titles including Distorted Dancefloors and Electro Glitch Essentials, Extreme Environments features three channels where you can select any one of the 142 loops.

For each channel you can then control the pitch, time stretch, amplitude & filter envelopes, saturation and reverb send. All three channels are then mixed together and put through master high pass and low pass filters, then finally a limiter.

The other key part of the instrument is the convolution reverb, which any of the three channels can be sent to. You can choose any one of the 86 bespoke impulse responses, ranging from straightforward to extreme sound design. This adds great depth and atmospheric detail beyond the standard reverbs you might usually come across. The combination of all these features makes for an almost limitless palette of sound creation.

Extreme Environments features

  • Kontakt Instrument with custom GUI and over 150 presets (requires Kontakt version 5.3.0 or later).
  • Audio loops – available as AIFF Apple Loops or Acidized wav files.
  • Impulse responses for use with any convolution reverb.
  • Logic EXS24 Instruments and Reason NN-XT Instruments.
  • Space Designer Presets.
  • Logic Channel Strip Settings.

Extreme Environments is available for purchase for RRP £59.95 GBP / 74.95 EUR.

ULTRALOOP combines advanced loop layering, comping, effect processing and automation techniques to generate new grooves, riffs and song ideas.

Up to eight tracks with loops of any BPM can be layered or comped together in real-time and can be further processed using the all-new Gestural FX engine.
