Plugin Boutique has announced a limited time 30% discount on selected Soniccouture instrument libraries as part of its partner focus.

30% off Soniccouture

Soniccouture produce virtual instruments and sample libraries for Kontakt and Ableton Live. The instruments are varied, but the common theme is unusual and exciting sound; ranging from glass harmonicas to horror-synths from the 1930s.

Soniccouture instruments

  • The Attic — A project to document and sample interesting, characterful instruments that may not always be the obvious choice when we think of classics. Instruments which, when added to a track, instantly add some special magic, even if it is due to the fact that it sounds a bit cheap or quirky.
  • Glass Works — Glass/Works is a Kontakt player instrument which collects together 3 extremely unusual and rare musical instruments which use glass to generate sound: Le Cristal Baschet, The Glass Armonica, and a set of Cloud Chamber Bowls.
  • (Xtended) Piano — “Extended” is a term usually used to describe unorthodox techniques used when playing a musical instrument in an unconventional way, to coax new timbres from a traditional instrument.
  • Konkrete 3 — A powerful sample-based drum synth for all kinds of electronic music with 90 kits of 61 sounds and Beat Shifter – Generative Drum Machine.
  • Geosonics — Geosonics is a collaboration between legendary field recordist Chris Watson and Soniccouture. Hundreds of hours of recording time, in some of the worlds most extreme and inhospitable environments, combine to form a library of rare sonic artefacts that cannot be found anywhere else.

The sale ends October 1st, 2014.

Soniccouture updates Ondes for Kontakt to v2

Soniccouture has announced version 2 of Ondes, a virtual Ondes Martenot instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Soniccouture Ondes v2
Sharper Look, Sharper Sound- Sometimes small improvements can make the biggest difference.

Ondes remains largely unchanged from the original version, one of our most enduringly popular instruments. But look closely and you’ll see that the GUI is much crisper, more solid and clearer on the screen. And most importantly of all, the sound is now much more authentic; the different oscillator samples are completely phase-locked.

What does that mean? Previously, each waveform sample was layered with the others so that you could blend the oscillator shapes as on the original unit; this worked pretty well, but resulted in a slightly wobbly, phasey sound – nice and fat, but not exactly like a real Ondes Martenot, which should sound like a single waveform. Phase-locking the samples together fixes this very nicely, taking the Ondes sound to a new level of realism.

Ondes v2 is available for purchase for 99 EUR. Until August 15th, 2014, a 30% discount is available with coupon code H3Y36TD at checkout. Ondes users can upgrade to version 2 at no charge.
