ArtVera has announced the release of ART Pyrite, a powerful atmospheric software synthesizer for Windows.
It creates unique variable Atmospheres, Soundscapes, Pads, Textures, Ambient, Sound Effects & Rhythmic and Melodic Sequences.
Running ART Pyrite 32 bit plugin in a 64 bit host might require a bridge-adapter/wrapper like JBridge.
This is not necessary if you use a 64 bit OS (Vista or Windows 7/8) and a 32 bit host.
This software synthesizer offers a wide spectrum of miscellaneous sounds, suitable for all music styles including NewAge and Movie Music.
You can easily create your own presets with basic sounds or by using sounds from external SF2 files. You also can create dynamic sequences by using wide possibilities of the modulation section and/or by using an included step sequencer for one oscillator, couple of oscillators or all oscillators. There is also available the Random button which can be used to change most of the parameters including changes of waveforms to create really unique sounds.

ForceSampling has announced the release of vocal_scapes, a sound library for Native Instruments Kontakt 5.
vocal_scapes is a collection of soundscapes and pads created from raw recordings of the human voice.
The sounds were created by sampling different vowels using an old-school sampler from the early nineteens and driving it trough a variety of effects including tape echo, tube distortion, lo-resolution reverb and many more effect units and pedals. This resulted in lush swells, otherworldly keys and dark/droning basses. The sounds (a total of 3GB of content) were then programmed into 46 Kontakt instruments to provide flexibility and sound sculpting possibilities.
The instrument offers a custom interface with 16 knobs to control 2 filters, drive, bit reduction, sample rate, delay, reverb, phaser, chorus and an amp envelope, so a user can morph and transform the sounds to create their own unique versions.
The sample library is available for purchase for $15 USD.
ForceSampling is also offering a 40% discount on its packs until December 25th, 2014. Use coupon 40offall at checkout to take advantage of this offer.
