SoulViaSound has announced the release of 8080F, a side chain filter ensemble with M/S processing, built for Reaktor 5 users.
It’s a creative tool perfect for pads processing but not only. You can use it whenever you want to modulate the cutoff envelope with an audio signal. With 8080F you can process only the stereo(side) signal or for example you can apply a low pass filter on the mono(mid) signal and a high pass filter on the stereo(side) signal while the cutoff envelope is modulated independent in the mono and stereo signal. The cutoff envelope is modulate by the difference between the side chain signal and the threshold settings with your attack and release settings.
All you have to do for feeding 8080F side chain is to send an audio signal in the 3/4 inputs from Reaktor 5. You can do this in your DAW (Ableton Live, Logic, Cubase, Reaper, Pro Tools) or in to you NI Maschine software.You have independent controls for the both channels (L-Mono/R-Stereo) but you can also control the filter parameter in link mode. Just press the link switch and start tweaking the left parameters.
8080F for Reaktor 5 is available to purchase for 19.99 EUR.

SoulViaSound has announced the release of Stylo, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Stylo is a library dedicated to Kontakt 4 owners. It is built on two layers with samples recorded from my original Stylophone: vibrato on and vibrato off.
Stylophone is a very basic pocket electronic organ but this library gives you the possibility to tweak the Stylophone sound with one LP filter, LFO, volume envelope, reverb, delay and voice control (switchable between monophonic and polyphonic).
Stylo is available to purchase for €4.99 EUR.

SoulViaSound has released Pathfinder, a post produced vinyl drum library with additional scratch banks, designed for Maschine and Battery 3 owners.
Berlin has a large market of second hand vinyls, so we bought some different unreleased radio promotion discs from 80′s – 90′s and sampled through a hand made class-a RIAA preamplifier and an 2 x API 7600 Channel Strip into Pro Tools. The kits are prepared for Maschine and Battery. For Maschine the scratches banks are mapped for keyboard like a normal Maschine instrument.
- 10 drum kits.
- 4 Scratch Banks (49 keys for every bank).
- 400 samples (24/44).
Pathfinder is available to purchase for 19 EUR.

It is a sound library resampled from the REDD (Kontakt version) and tuned in MASCHINE 1.6. In this library you will find some aggressive fat bass, aggressive lead and soft pad instruments. Some pads instruments are processed with Absynth FX, so you’ll need to have Absynth to use them.

- 30 instruments, over 700MB samples.
- Useful for a large range of music styles like Trance, Dance, R’n’B, Electro and much more.

George Poenaru of Soulviasound has released REDD, a hybrid synthesizer for Native Instruments Kontakt.
REDD is a virtual synthesizer based on a wavetable recorded from popular analog and virtual analog synthesizers like Minimoog, Korg MS20, Doepfer, Virus B, Oberheim, etc.
The main parameters of this instrument will not display the value and this it’s part of concept because you should judge sound with the ears not with the eyes. Modulations, envelopes, filters and FX are based on the Kontakt engine. The reverb used by REDD it’s also based on the impulse response created with Bricasti M7 V2.1 and loaded in “Convolution” Send FX slot from Kontakt 4.2 with 0 latency setting.
Currently you’ll find 92 presets in the full version and about 18 presets in Demo version.
REDD for Kontakt 4.2 or higher is available to purchase for 49.99 EUR.
