Samples From Mars releases DATABENDERS_TOOLKIT sample pack


Samples From Mars has announced the release of DATABENDERS_TOOLKIT, a sample pack featuring over 300 samples, two Ableton packs and MIDI clips full of strange and complex sounds created by corrupting data.

For this release, LA Based sound designer Skylar Trainor spent months bending 3d models, A.I. brains, graphics engines, VST plugins and his audio driver. The results of these long sessions were then sculpted and layered in Pro-Tools, and sent to Samples From Mars headquarters for extensive analog saturation. We made sure the waveforms became denser and packed with varieties of harmonic distortion.

The Results:
Cold and glitchy soundscapes, dark ambience, powerful and dirty drums and subs, reverses, and mutli-sampled modulations. These are complex FX that can be used for weird, ambient, avant garde Aphex Twin / Arca style tracks. Or surrounded by analog elements, and more straight forward 4X4 house tracks (Check the demos).

The sample pack is available for purchase for $22 USD.

2CAudio releases Kaleidoscope sound design & creative effects plugin

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 22, 2015 - comment 0 comments

2CAudio has announced the release of Kaleidoscope, a sound design tool and advanced creative effects plug-in for Windows and Mac.

2CAudio Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscope is the ultimate sound-design tool and creative effects toy! It is an entirely new class of visual audio effects processors and is one of the most unique generative signal processing tools to come to market in recent history. Technically speaking, Kaleidoscope is a massively parallel bank of physically modeled resonators that can be tuned completely arbitrarily with scientific precision and dynamically modulated over time by over two million points of automation. In simplistic terms, Kaleidoscope uses pictures to control sound!

Kaleidoscope is both an effects processor as well as a content generator, meaning that it is possible to synthesize completely new sounds without any input sound or MIDI performance data as well as to transform incoming audio signals in other-worldly manners. Music is organized sound. The organization occurs in two axes: time and frequency. Kaleidoscope is a tool that offers ultimate control over musical organization in both of these domains and adds a third axis of creative control we like to call spatial choreography. It is designed with one goal in mind: to inspire and invigorate composers, sound-designers, and artists to push the boundaries of what is possible in cutting edge sound-design.

Kaleidoscope for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase for the introductory price of $199.95 USD until March 1st, 2015 (regular $249.95 USD). A bundle with the Architecture Volume 01 KS add-on is on sale for $249.95 USD (regular $324.95 USD).

2CAudio is also offering Kaleidoscope customers a 50% discount on its reverb plug-ins.

From now until March 1, 2015 customers who have purchased Kaleidoscope may purchased any 2CAudio reverb at 50% off. To take advantage of this offer, first order Kaleidoscope. Then order any 2CAudio reverb of your choice and simply apply this coupon code at checkout to adjust the price: GiveMeSpace
