Sound Dust releases Found Maschine expansion

Related: , , Posted in news on Aug 11, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Sound Dust has announced the release of Found Maschine, an expansion pack for Native Instrument Maschine 2 featuring a collection of found, broken, bruised and pre-loved sounds.

Sound Dust Found Maschine

If you ever wondered about the sound of a drum kit made from multi sampled snow, an onion, lawn mowers, a broken double bass, and the ghost of Thomas Carlyle…… wonder no more.

A new Maschine2 expansion from Sound Dust, and sister to the Kontakt based Modular Chaos Engine#1, Found Maschine re-tinkers with the 800 found sounds of the original and comes up with something entirely different.

Great for anything from Tom Waits hippity hop, quirky lo-fi Mr Scruff-iness, wonky Flying Cobra wooze to itchy glitch pop and dark and noble film score throbbiness.

Found Maschine features

  • 800 tagged .wav samples (24bit).
  • 16 drumkits (Groups) with pre programmed sequences.
  • 196 tagged chromatic instruments (sounds).
  • 18 Massive synth patches.
  • 16 drumsynth patches.
  • 15 projects.

For a limited time the expansion pack is available bundled with Modular Chaos Engine #1 for Kontakt for £20 GBP.

Sound Dust releases Modular Chaos Engine libraries Found & Evolved

Sound Dust has announced the release of Modular Chaos Engine #1 – Found and Modular Chaos Engine #2 – Evolved, two instrument libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Sound Dust Modular Chaos Engine #1 - Found

For the past 10 years or so I’ve always carried some kind of portable recording device and a pair of OKM in ear microphones around with me and kept a kind of aural diary of great sounding things and great sounding places. I’ve made literally gazillions of recordings in places all over this side of the world, and like most diaries these recordings have mainly been sitting in dark cupboards waiting for someone to rediscover them…

The Modular Chaos Engine is the perfect repository for 785 of them. I’ve selected the most usefully percussive, clangy, bangy, thumpy, boomy, itchy, scratchy, thwacky and whacky, added a really powerful sequencing engine and made a “found sound” drum machine.

Modular Chaos Engine #1 – Found features

  • 785 individual samples ( including up to 20 variations of each sound) mapped to 12 sample engines from C1 upwards.
  • 160mb download.
  • 12 complex 12 track sequencers triggered from keys C0 and above (adjustable).
  • The Chaos button for instant randomisation.
  • The Order button for an instant return to normality.
  • Comprehensive editing with quick edit system for control of all sounds together, or indivual editing of tune, time, low pass filter, high pass filter, attack, decay and volume.
  • Individual per engine articulation controls.
  • Separate sequence tracks for sound selection, accent, decay, pan and tuning per note.
  • Chaotic “looper” control with 32 looping algorithms.
  • All controls midi learnable.
  • Inbuilt instruction manual.

“Modular Chaos Engine #2 – Evolved” features a fully electronic instrument.

Sound Dust Modular Chaos Engine #2 - Evolved

Its probably no secret that this time i’ve exploited the strange and rather wonderful qualities of Dave Smiths’ criminally underated analog/digital masterpiece the Evolver. I LOVE this underdog synth because it has so much wonky personality and a wonderful architecture that can produce some really great sounds….usually of a slightly boisterous nature.

So, for this Chaos Engine there are up to 127 different sounds/articulations per key which are very loosely mapped across the keys from from low kick drum type sounds through snappy snare type sounds up to more clicky, rattly hats and then the mildly melodic sounds up near the top end of the key range.

Modular Chaos Engine #2 – Evolved features

  • 1106 individual samples ( including up to 20 variations of each sound) mapped to 12 sample engines from C1 upwards.
  • 283mb download.
  • 12 complex 12 track sequencers triggered from keys C0 and above (adjustable).
  • The Chaos button for instant randomisation.
  • The Order button for an instant return to normality.
  • Comprehensive editing with quick edit system for control of all sounds together, or indivual editing of tune, time, low pass filter, high pass filter, attack, decay and volume.
  • Individual per engine articulation controls.
  • Separate sequence tracks for sound selection, accent, decay, pan and tuning per note.
  • Chaotic “looper” control with 32 looping algorithms.
  • All controls midi learnable.
  • Inbuilt instruction manual.

The sample libraries are available for purchase for £20 GBP each, or bundled for £35 GBP.

Sound Dust releases Hammr Growler for Kontakt

Sound Dust has released Hammr Growler, the third part of the Hammr Suite, a comprehensive tonewheel organ set of sampled instruments for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Sound Dust Hammr Growler

Hammr Growler is the filthy brother of the not particularly demure Hammr+ and was developed with Oasis/Sheryl Crow keyboard player Mikey Rowe.

The Growler captures from 4 mic positions the full tilt sound of Mikeys favourite 888000000 setting on his 1959 B3 through a cranked up Leslie cabinet.

Hammr Growler features

  • 5 x 15 second samples per note for a total of 3.2GB of samples compressed to a 2.7GB download.
  • 4 mic positions using classic Neuman mics and Grace preamps.
  • Individual control of volume, pan, ADSR and vibrato per mic.
  • Percussion 2nd and 3rds available at the same time, with control of octave and decay time.
  • Note off volume and decay control.
  • Velocity sensitivity control.
  • CC11 hard-wired to volume for expression pedal swells.
  • Leslie simulator with speed, treble/bass balance and distance controls.
  • 69 specially recorded reverb impulses from a variety of real spaces and classic gear.
  • Cabinet re-micing through a choice of 11 speaker cabinets.
  • Dirt, morphing EQ and master EQ effects.
  • Dirty contacts control adds small amounts of timing variation to note on /off to mimic the effects of ageing key contacts.
  • 24 presets.
  • Master/slave control system for quick adjustment of group controls.
  • Built in user manual.

The library is available for £30 GBP. A purchase includes a 10 EUR discount link for MeldaProduction’s MVintageRotary Leslie simulator plug-in, and a £10 discount code for Hammr+.

Sound Dust releases Hammr+ organ for Kontakt

Sound Dust Hammr+

Sound Dust has announced the release of Hammr+, a virtual tonewheel organ instrument library for Native Instruments, developed in collaboration with Oasis/Sheryl Crow keyboard player Mikey Rowe and recorded by Andy Britton.

You’d be right in thinking that he last thing the world needs is another Hammond clone, and I would be the first to agree, but the Hammr+ is a little different.

Of course she oozes classic character and has all the capabilities you’d expect of a tonewheel organ, but in true Sound Dust style this thing takes a huge leap of the imagination and moves way past the limitations of the original. By taking advantage of sampling technology and bespoke Kontakt architecture and a little bit of imagination Hammr+ can do things that were inconceivable in the original 1959 instrument.

Hammr+ features

  • Every note of every drawbar of an unmentionable tonewheel organ sampled for 7 secs through a 1959 Leslie cabinet for around 1GB of uncompressed samples.
  • Individual control of volume, pan, ADSR, vibrato, saturation (amount, bass and tone) and tremolo (speed, fade and depth ) for every drawbar.
  • Percussion 2nd and 3rds available at the same time, with control of octave and decay time.
  • Note off volume and decay control.
  • Velocity sensitivity control.
  • CC11 hardwired to volume for expression pedal swells.
  • Leslie simulator with speed, treble/bass balance and distance controls.
  • 69 specially recorded reverb impulses from a variety of real spaces and classic gear.
  • Cabinet re-micing through a choice of 11 speaker cabinets.
  • Dirt, morphing EQ and master EQ effects.
  • Dirty contacts control adds small amounts of timing variation to note on /off to mimic the effects of aging key contacts.
  • 70 presets including 30 classic sounds.
  • Chaos and reset controls for painless sound design.
  • Master/slave control system for quick adjustment of group controls.
  • Built in user manual.
  • It sounds great!

Hammr+ is available for purchase for £30 GBP. Requires full version of Kontakt 4.2.4 or above. A 10 EUR discount link for the MVintageRotary Leslie simulator by Melda Production is included.

Sound Dust Tiny Chaos Engine

Tiny Chaos Engine a sophisticated groove box made with a collection of unlikely sound sources that include a lawn mower, kite flying, celery, static electricity, trickling water and a broken piano as well as some more obvious percussive sources.

  • Chaos button for instant randomisation.
  • Order button for an instant return to normality.
  • Comprehensive editing with quick edit system for instant results.
  • 12 sample engines with individual articulation control.
