New Sonic Arts has released Granite Horror, a collection of 150 chilling new sounds for the Granite sampler instrument.
Discover the dark side of granular synthesis with Granite Horror. Strictly not for the feint-hearted, this stunning collection offers a unique thrill-ride through desolate landscapes, rising graveyards and tense encounters, through to entrancing soundscapes of temptation and redemption.
Expertly crafted by renowned sound-design gurus Ameyah Audio, the pack boasts 150 unique patches pushing the Granite engine, and tension levels, to the max. With over 140 original samples ranging from natural field recordings to highly-processed synthetic textures, the collection spans a wide range of inspiring sounds, from haunting atmospheres, dystopian soundscapes and creepy FX, to angelic pads and soothing ambience. Granite Horror is the ideal expansion for musicians, composers and sound-designers looking for a distinctive edge.
All sounds come production-ready out-of-the-box, and will effortlessly weave into your compositions. Combined with the transformative power of Granite’s sound-engine, Granite Horror provides a rich sonic toolbox, brimming with inspiration and creative potential.
The sound pack is available for purchase for 29 EUR.

Patchpool has announced the release of Tabla Rasa, a new soundset for the Serum synthesizer instrument from Xfer Records.
All wavetables in this set are created from scratch, either by resynthesizing acoustic instruments, vocals, percussion, hardware synthesizers and sounds derived from organic and inorganic materials like wood, metal, plastic and glass or by creating wavetables and single cycle waveforms in Serum’s own editor.
34 wav-samples were produced especially for this set including cinematic soundscapes and drones, abstract and atonal textures and acoustic percussion sounds.
Complex modulation routings enable the user to deeply interact with the sounds, often totally changing a patch at the turn of a Macro. Tabula Rasa contains a wide range of expressive sounds ranging from ambient drones and warm pads to dark and gloomy textures to cinematic impacts and sound effects to futuristic and new age-sequences to beautiful plucks and bell sounds to expressive leads, deep basses and edgy stabs.
Tabla Rasa features
- 104 patches (75.9 MB).
- 34 wav samples (44.1 Khz/24 Bit/stereo) – 330.9 MB.
- 114 wavetables (50 MB).
- 42 LFO shapes.
- All patches have Velocity, Modwheel and four Macros assigned, most patches also use Aftertouch.
- Library size: 458,2 MB installed.
The soundset is available for purchase for 30 EUR.

Samples From Mars has announced the release of DATABENDERS_TOOLKIT, a sample pack featuring over 300 samples, two Ableton packs and MIDI clips full of strange and complex sounds created by corrupting data.
For this release, LA Based sound designer Skylar Trainor spent months bending 3d models, A.I. brains, graphics engines, VST plugins and his audio driver. The results of these long sessions were then sculpted and layered in Pro-Tools, and sent to Samples From Mars headquarters for extensive analog saturation. We made sure the waveforms became denser and packed with varieties of harmonic distortion.
Cold and glitchy soundscapes, dark ambience, powerful and dirty drums and subs, reverses, and mutli-sampled modulations. These are complex FX that can be used for weird, ambient, avant garde Aphex Twin / Arca style tracks. Or surrounded by analog elements, and more straight forward 4X4 house tracks (Check the demos).
The sample pack is available for purchase for $22 USD.
