Sample Logic releases Stadium Instruments

Sample Logic Stadium Instruments

Sample Logic has announced the release of Stadium Instruments, a sample library featuring a collection of traditional and morphed stadium crowd instruments for Native Instruments Kontakt.

For the 2010 world cup we brought to you the amazing Vuvuzela library. Now in light of the 2014 world cup, and by popular demand, we are proud to bring to you STADIUM INSTRUMENTS – an in depth collection of over 300 traditional and morphed stadium sports inspired instruments. This library is the most complete collection of traditional and morphed stadium crowd instruments.

The core of the STADIUM INSTRUMENTS library is centered around blurring the line between music and sound design, which is defined in the hundreds of morphed sounds we created, each of which fits all genres of music production. In creating this product, we used the traditional sounds of various instruments generally found in sporting events and stadiums to produce and mutate new cutting-edge morphed instruments. To top it off, there is a small collection of acoustic instruments untreated for your pleasure.

The library is available for purchase for $49.99 USD.

Vuvuzela by Dundas Football Club @ Flickr

Some interesting things I found recently:

The sound of the vuvuzela seems to irritate quite a number of people, so here’s a round-up of some solutions on how to watch the World Cup games without this loud horn.

# Filter The Vuvuzela Horn Out of the World Cup; Learn JACK Routing on Linux

Are you a World Cup fan annoyed by the constant sound of the South African vuvuzela horn? Wish you could remove that sound from your World Cup viewing experience? Do you want to learn a little bit about powerful modular effects routing can be on Linux? Either? Both? Call it “football”? “Soccer”? Any way round, we’ve got you covered.

# Waves Vuvuzela Noise Reduction Solution

Waves has a processing chain available to download.

In response to the widely publicized complaints from TV viewers and broadcasters of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Waves is proud to unveil a solution which dramatically reduces the problematic sound of the omnipresent Vuvuzela trumpet favored by South African soccer fans.

Working in conjunction with a major television broadcaster, we've precision-crafted a preset processing chain which drastically decreases Vuvuzela noise: The WNS Waves Noise Suppressor and the Q10 Paragraphic Equalizer. Together, they not only minimize Vuvuzela noise, they increase the intelligibility of the game announcers' play-by-play action and color commentary.

Waves Vuvuzela processing chain

The processing chain for Vuvuzela noise reduction is now available as load-and-use sessions for Pro Tools, Waves MultiRack, and Cubase.

# Prosoniq VuvuX

And Prosoniq has a free filtering plug-in for Mac users.

Prosoniq is proud to announce the world's first realtime Vuvuzela filtering plug in based on sonicWORX' audio de-mixing technology.

# Z3TA+

Cakewalk's award-winning Waveshaping Synthesizer is now just $19.99 USD as a download.

Usine Ableton OSC touch Controller

# Sensomusic Usine

Sensomusic has released tons of freebies for its Usine users.

Good news for all Usine free Users: Get more than 200 Add-ons and ready-made patches for free. Just register on the forum (it's totally free).

Peter Kirn at Create Digital Music also report on this one in Hundreds of Free Musical Tools Now Free to Add to Usine.

Usine is an overlooked gem in music making, a PC-based modular environment and live performance tool that runs as a host or VST plug-in. Pick the modules you need from a set of powerful building blocks, and build a custom musical rig, complete with multi-touch control on new Windows devices. It sounds like something you might request from a magical genie, but the thing is real, priced at EUR120 (or just EUR60 for educational users).

As with any modular environment, having ample access to powerful modules and some patches to get you started is everything. But that makes this week’s news worth noting: co-developer Olivier Sens has made some 200+ add-ons and patches free. All you have to do to grab them is register on the forum. The demo version of Usine is surprisingly capable, too, so if you’ve been waiting to test-drive and you have a Windows machine (or a dual-boot Mac), now could be a good time.

# Review of the Chauvet Slimpar56 LED Light and Obey3 Light Controller

Mark @ Modulate This! on the Chauvet Slimpar56 & Obey3:

In a recent post I documented my new live rig with a drawing and a time-lapse video sans lights and light controller. I’m happy to report I just received and have been testing the brand new LED SlimPAR™ 56 and Obey™ 3 compact DMX controller so I thought I’d share some notes.

Some interesting things I found recently:

# Kasabian Football Hero – DIY Larger-Than-Life, Soccer Ball-Controlled Guitar Hero Game.


Using pressure pads with Arduino boards wired up to Guitar Hero's Frets on Fire

Football Hero is played by a team of insanely gifted young freestyle footballers, all kitted out in Umbro Football gear. This game is programmed with the Kasabian track Underdog. The freestyle footballers are: Paul Wood, Paul Klein, Darryl Stewart, Tom Pett, Lewis Foster & Harry Adcroft – you may have already seen "Woody" and "Kleiny" displaying their skills during 2009's Britain's Got Talent series…

# Spooky Tesla Spirit Radio

The Spooky Tesla Spirit Radio is a crystal radio circuit in a jam-jar. It makes fun spooky sounds by responding to input from several types of electromagnetic sources. This non-powered radio plugs right into the computer sound-in jack, and makes use of audio software for real time sound effects.

IDMf007 - Continuum

# IDMf007 – Continuum

Martin Herron wrote in to let us know about Continuum, a new release on the IDMf netlabel.

Continuum, the newest installment in the IDMf library, is an electronic music album to behold. Beginning with the hard-hitters and slowing down to a softer touch, this compilation showcases the diversity of genres displayed on the IDMf netlabel, including breakcore, dubstep, house, breaks, ambient, and IDM.

The tracks are arranged as they would be in a double CD package: Side A includes eight tracks jam-packed with energy that smoothly segue into a lighter mix of glorious beats on Side B. IDMf is proud to introduce a few new artists along with some of “golden oldies” who have appeared on previous compilations, bringing you the most well-rounded and genre-stomping release from IDMf yet!

The album is free to download from the IDMf website (320kbps mp3).

# Raindrop Melody Maker

Lovely music game by Lullatone:

We developed a new interactive game, Raindrop Melody Maker, with our friends Secondary School.
