Precisionsound releases Analog Performer SFX

Precisionsound Analog Performer SFX

Precisionsound has introduced Analog Performer SFX, a suite of electronic sound effects ranging from glitchy blips to screaming rips, noise strikes to harmonic ripples, laughing androids to alien birdcalls, all created with analog hardware.

The library was crafted from exclusive performances by Phil Thornton on his vintage Moog Source synthesiser, complemented by his Korg MS-20/MS-50 modular system and Korg SQ-10 analog sequencer. A bonus suite of remixed effects pushes into further sonic terrain, including sweeps, risers, and hybrid textures.

Precisionsound founder, Lars Westin, said: “Analog Performer SFX will add colour and chaos to your productions. The combination of synth programming and live improvisation gives this library an unmistakable character – hovering between vintage sci-fi and futuristic electronica – that can’t be matched by software synths or computer-based sequencing.”

Phil Thornton is a best-selling ambient artist whose production and performance credits include Sinéad O’Connor, Arthur Brown, Hossam Ramzy, and Expandis.

Analog Performer SFX features

  • 385 raw synth sounds (709MB total).
  • 155 hybrid remixed sounds (586MB total).
  • 1.26GB uncompressed size.
  • Individual sounds from 300ms to 1m25sec in duration.
  • 44.1kHz 24-bit stereo WAV throughout.

Analog Performer SFX is available to purchase for $49 USD.

8Dio releases CAGE String Edition orchestral effects for Kontakt

8Dio CAGE String

8Dio Productions has announced the release of CAGE String, the first title in a series of orchestral effects libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The CAGE String Edition contains an articulation list second and comes in high-resolution wave (.wav / 24 bit / 96khz format). We wanted to create something definitive and unrivaled. The String Edition alone contains over 1100 articulations and it is near impossible to find an effect not covered.

The CAGE Chaos Engine allows you to take complete control of the samples and you can control over 1.500 sample parameters with a single click. In addition you can also randomize all the rack-fx (ex. trance-gate, filters, EQ).

So imagine having the deepest set of articulations with an incredibly intuitive and powerful Chaos Engine. An infinity of possibilities.

CAGE Strings is available to purchase for the introductory price of $419 USD until April 1st, 2014 (regular $499 USD). The library is also included in the CAGE Bundle incl. pre-order of CAGE Brass (March 5th) and CAGE Woodwinds (March 12th), priced at $897 USD.

Chemical Kinetics

What sets a professional production apart from the rest? A build up and release of energy through various stages of the track’s progression. One of the best ways to achieve this is through transition effects. Ascending and descending transitions help a track’s energy transfer, and builds anticipation for “what’s to come”.

Chemical Kinetics contains a superb collection 100% royalty free transition effects for your productions, all expertly produced to be cleanest, most useful FX samples in your arsenal. This sample set will be a valuable addition to producers of all electronic music genres, but will also be able to cross over effortlessly into other realms like cinematic compositions.

HISS and a ROAR releases Lakes ambience library

HISS and a ROAR Lakes

HISS and a ROAR has released Lakes, a new ambience sound library featuring recordings made at various lakes.

I travelled all over the South Island of New Zealand to create this library, recording a total of seventeen locations (& having some fantastic salmon sashimi along the way!)

Obviously useful for lakes, these ambiences are also incredibly useful for details in ocean and beach situations, for ‘at sea’ locations, as elements in boat movement and (with some processing) convincing underwater swells and movement…

Each ambience is minimum three minutes in duration, recorded & delivered 24 bit 96kHz & captured to six tracks with MKH8040 ORTF, spaced omni DPA4060 pair & an MKH70 pair.

The library is available to purchase for the introductory price of $33 USD until March 1st, 2014 (regular $49 USD).

New Sound Lab releases NSL012 Floppy Drives sound library

New Sound Lab Floppy Drives

New Sound Lab has announced NSL012 Floppy Drives, a sound library featuring recordings of seven computer disk drives: two 3.5″ floppy drives, one 5.25″ floppy drive, three Zip drives, and one SuperDisk drive.

All drives were taken apart to access and manipulate the stepper/eject motors to create unique sounds. These range from electronic percussive bleeps and glitchy noises, to electromechanical motor movements.

An Arduino UNO microcontroller board was connected to one of the 3.5″ floppy drives, allowing precise control of the drive’s stepper motor via custom software code. A midi keyboard was interfaced to the system, giving the ability to control the back-and-forth movement of the read/write heads via notes on the keyboard. This esentially turned the drive into an instrument, producing a new set of sounds not existing in the drive’s normal functions.

Sounds were captured using a pair of induction coil pickups, Barcus Berry contact mics, and a Sanken CSS-5 shotgun microphone, into a Sound Devices 702 recorder.

Floppy Drives features

  • 665 sounds in 155 Broadcast Wave files at 24bit – 192khz (135 mono / 20 stereo).
  • Library size is 1.2 GB.
  • All files are organized and tagged with metadata, compatible with Pro Tools, Audiofinder, Soundminer and other sound library management software Metadata.
  • PDF included.

The sound library is available to purchase for $45 USD.
