Unidentified Sound Object releases Transmission Apparatus

Transmission Apparatus

Unidentified Sound Object has announced Transmission Apparatus, a recombinant sound library available as a .wav files collection and for the first time also as a Kontakt .nki file.

It’s a construction kit designed to create a broad range of communication sounds, from real to “alien” broadcasting signals. The library contains more than 2 GB of data, delivered in 373 files of unique sound material.

It’s catalogued in five elements: AM (amplitude modulation), FM (frequency modulation), SSB (single side band – aka ham radio), KYMA (synthesised noises) and VOCAL (unintelligible speeches). The first three bands were recorded from the output of different radio receivers at 96 kHz via a Crane Song HEDD (Harmonically Enhanced Digital Device) to add warmth and tube/analog sonic color to the recordings.

All the samples have been carefully selected from these recording sessions, with the addition of just a little dsp processing to widen the stereo field. Moreover, the Kyma folder contains unique audio files entirely synthesised in the SSC Kyma+Paca(rana) environment. And a group of sfx called Vocal is the result of “destroyed” dialogues and vocal sources via spectral processing.

The library is available for purchase for $49 USD (wav) / $69 USD (Kontakt).

Ueberschall releases Ambient Textures

Ueberschall has launched Ambient Textures, a new Elastik Soundbank featuring ambient soundbeds and rhythms for media production.

Ueberschall Ambient Textures

Ambient Textures contains 2 GB and 216 loops. The samples are organized in four different folders: Harmonic Ambiences, Drum Textures, Percussion FX and Unperfect Loops. From dreamy, hypnotic musical beds through to dark, menacing moods, Ambient Textures is a perfect choice for media composers and sound designers looking for new inspiration.

A collection of harmonic ambience loops organized into small kits of loops with loops from each kit designed to be layered. The loops are long (many well over 30 seconds) and containing evolving soundbeds. These harmonic samples can be augmented with the a series of drum and percussion textures. All the loops in this second element have been processed and, with the powerful time-stretching features of Elastik, can be time-stretched to match any tempo required. The final element is a series of ‘unperfect loops’ with both rhythmic and non-rhythmic sounds, noises and sound FX.

Ambient Textures provides an ideal collection of source material for busy sound designers and composers working in film, TV, commercials, games, documentaries, advertising or other background music/audio applications.

The library is available for purchase for 49 EUR.

Detunized releases Abandoned Shelters – The Danish Bunker Coast

Detunized has announced the release of Abandoned Shelters – The Danish Bunker Coast, a new sample library for Ableton Live and Broadcast Wav.

Detunized Abandoned Shelters

Danish Bunker Coast library features mysterious and eerie sounds recorded in and around WW2 bunker relicts along the Danish West Coast.

The gathered ambiences form a comprehensive resource of steady winds, heavy gusts, rustling undergrowths as well as single waves and strong surfs that constantly crash into these otherworldly areas of concrete remains.

A big part of the library was recorded inside the bunkers where the strong nature elements of wind and water are transformed into heavily comb filtered textures and dark atmospheres.

Abandoned Shelters features

  • BWAV Universal (full version) $69 USD: 8 sceneries, 71 takes, 2 to 3+ minutes each, 24Bit/96kHz, embedded metadata, 5.8 GB.
  • BWAV Universal (light version) 15 EUR: 4 sceneries, 31 takes, 2+ minutes each, 24Bit/48kHz, embedded metadata, 1.2 GB.
