de la Mancha basic65

de la Mancha has announced that its basic65 synthesizer instrument for Windows is now available for free.

basic 65 is a monophonic synth, inspired by the classic 80s home computer, the Commodore 64 and its legendary SID chip. Building on the waveforms and signal path of this famous chip, basic 65 adds further features and options to take things a step further.

The double arpeggiator allows complex versions of that retro 8-bit game sound and the modulation options inspire experimentation via the mod envelope and 2 comprehensive LFOs. Pulse width modulation, ring modulation and oscillator detune/sync are key ingredients in the signature sound. Throw in some pitch drift, bit drift, a sprinkle of dirt and randomisation and you have a wide range of lofi, chiptune, retro-tastic sounds at your disposal.

basic 65 was co-developed with sink, who also made the presets.

basic65 for Windows (VST) is now available to download as freeware. A donation to Cancer Research UK is appreciated.

WaveShaper releases Plasticid Dr-110 & TubeSt8tion kit free sample packs

WaveShaper has released Plasticid Dr-110 and TubeSt8tion kit, two new electronic drum machine sample packs.

WaveShaper Plasticid Dr-110

The Boss DR-110 is a cute little drum machine from the early 80s, the last analogue one made by Roland.

The overall sound is very reminiscent to the much praised Tr-808 and Tr-606. The kick is punchier than the 606, but the hats and cymbals will provide you that instant acid factor and the snare is also very snappy. The clap is similar to the 808’s one, so you’re right by thinking that the DR-110 will give you that classic, sought-after sound but with some slight difference and much character.

If you are into electro/house/acid/retro/techno music, you will like this one for sure !

WaveShaper TubeSt8tion kit

The Plasticid Dr-110 sample pack is available in two versions:

  • Free: mono, 16bit/44.1khz audio samples.
  • Pay-what-you-want: stereo, 24bit/48khz audio samples.

The TubeSt8tion kit is a free samplepack (24bit/48khz, stereo Wav files) made using a Novation DrumStation processed through tube preamp and tube compressor gear.
The well-known and beloved sound of the famous tr-808 now has even more warmth, dirt and punch.
