Spitfire launches SD01 DUSTBUNDLE & REDCOLA TRAILER GIANT volume #1

Spitfire Audio has announced the release of SD01 DUSTBUNDLE and REDCOLA TRAILER GIANT volume #1, two new Extended Family series sample libraries produced by third-party developers.

Sound Dust DUSTBUNDLE

Fresh from fellow British sample developers Sound Dust — created by Brighton-based composer, sound designer, and funny noise lover Pendle Poucher for composers, producers, and music-makers alike — comes SD01 DUSTBUNDLE, a purpose-built bundle comprising all six of the company’s top-selling, most inspiring, and delightful virtual instruments for Native Instruments’ KONTAKT platform:

PLASTIC GHOST PIANO is an amazing-sounding, one-of-a-kind ‘acoustic’ piano produced by spurting bursts of controlled noise through unsuspecting piano samples; GRAND THRIFT AUTOHARP2 is the result of mating a tiny autoharp with a full-sized grand piano to create an absorbing mixed-breed musical mechanism with four different string layers to create unique piano-ish, plucky, autoharp-ish sounds; DULCITONE 18842 represents the first time that this rare and beautiful 1884-vintage Scottish portable keyboard boasting basic piano action with spring-loaded felt-covered hammers striking small magnetshaped tuning folks to produce a woody, celesta-cum-glockenspiel-type sound has been multi-sampled to create another distinctive, musthave virtual instrument; DULCITONE 19002 gives a 16-year-younger dulcitone the same multi-sampling treatment with a slightly jinglier and more even tone throughout; HAMMR+ is one part of the Hammr Suite, a classic tonewheel organ sample set with a difference developed with Oasis/Sheryl Crowe keyboard player Mike Rowe and recorded by Andy Britton at Toyroom Studios in Brighton; while GHOST DULCITONE 1900 sees Pendle Poucher applying his PLASTIC GHOST PIANO multi-sampling experiments with impulse responses to his rare dulcitone collection to create otherworldly, hauntingly-beautiful sounding instruments — a yet-to-be released left-field beauty by way of an added bonus!

As Spitfire Audio cofounder/composer Paul Thomson himself says, somewhat excitedly: “There’s a wealth of great stuff in here. It’s really a killer collection of sounds!”

REDCOLA Trailer Giant Vol 1

Next up, REDCOLA TRAILER GIANT volume #1, the world’s first purpose-built trailer toolkit designed by behemoths of the trailer music and sound design world REDCOLA.

Spitfire Audio are collectively delighted to partner up with West Coast, USA-based likeminded craftspeople and enthusiasts for creativity and excellence in their art. As such, this carefully curated bumper volume of sweeps, rises, falls, atmos, hits, pads, and ‘moments’ is sure to become the definitive go-to pack of tasty and tasteful goodies for anyone seeking out mind-warping, jaw-dropping transitions when looking to inject adrenalin into cues and take things up a gear or two! Trailer use is, of course, an absolute given, as already professionally proven by Spitfire Audio themselves when using the spectacular sounds within this volume on ads, hybrid movie and TV scores, and especially when successfully scoring some major computer games.

Gushes Paul Thomson: “What we have here is a team who are amongst the best in their field, creating really high-end work with incredible sound design, recording, and processing, and then we’ve paired that with the controllability that you get with the eDNA engine in order that you can take this world-class raw material and make it into something new which is unique to your project. So it’s not just buying a bunch of sound effects as WAVs and sticking some in the middle of your session. We always want the user to be in control of what is actually coming out of the system — that’s the key thing for us, so this is a really wonderful pairing.”

The sample libraries are now available exclusively from Spitfire Audio for £99 GBP for the DUSTBUNDLE and £299 GBP forREDCOLA TRAILER GIANT volume #1 (subject to VAT within the EU).

Sound Dust releases Ghost Dulcitone 1900 for Kontakt

Sound Dust has announced the release of Ghost Dulcitone 1900, a new instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Sound Dust Ghost Dulcitone 1900

This is a magical sounding impossible hybrid instrument that takes the rare and beautiful woody jingle of the dulcitone and transforms it into an extended dusty swoon that goes to infinity and beyond (although technically that’s not really possible is it ?) If Tim Burton was a musical instrument he would make sounds like the Ghost Dulcitone 1900.

The starting point of Ghost Dulcitone 1900 is sister instrument the dULCITONE 1900² a 100 year old acoustic keyboard which is binaurally multisampled with 7 velocity layers. Then each sample is used as a convolution reverb impulse and 20 second bursts of Moog Voyager generated analogue white noise are blasted through it to create a whole new sample set of dusty, metallic bowed sounding, infinite duclitone-iness.

Ghost Dulcitone 1900 features

  • 6 deeply multisampled sound articulations ; Pale Ghost convolution, Reverse Ghost convolution, Dark Ghost convolution, Dulcitone 1900, Roomy Nord and Release Nord.
  • 3.26GB of 24bit multisamples with up to 14 velocity levels per note.
  • Advanced architecture with automatable control of everything.
  • Sample start control.
  • Patch morphing with mod wheel controller
  • 3 pages of scripting.
  • Ghost Engine with per voice algorithmic reverb.
  • Noise Engine with per voice distortion and filtering.
  • 74 specially created convolution reverb impulses recorded from real spaces, expensive hardware, and some less obvious sources including a Roland Space Echo, Lexicon reverb and the stage of Glyndebourne Opera House.
  • Leslie effect, cabinet modelling and morphing EQ.
  • Selectable and adjustable release group.
  • Selectable round robin sample swapping.
  • Midi timing jitter.
  • 51 instruments (.nki’s).
  • Built in instruction manual.

The library is available for purchase for £30 GBP. A bundle with Dulcitone2 is £40 GBP.

Sound Dust Plastic Ghost Piano

The piano sample set was made by sending bursts of controlled noise through unsuspecting piano samples used as convolution reverb impulses.

  • Advanced architecture with automatable control of everything.
  • Sample start control.
  • Ghost Engine with per voice algorithmic reverb.

  • 69 specially created convolution reverb impulses recorded from real spaces, expensive hardware, and some less obvious sources including a Roland Space Echo, Lexicon reverb and the stage of Glyndebourne Opera House.
  • 6 deeply multisampled sound articulations; Dark Ghost convolution, Pale Ghost convolution, Hohner Pianet, Convolved “plastic” piano, palm mute Stratocaster and Release Piano.
  • Leslie effect, cabinet modelling and morphing EQ.

  • Round robin sample swapping.
  • MIDI timing jitter.
  • 25 “starter” presets.

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.
