AudioThing releases Soundscapes Vol.2 for Kontakt

AudioThing has launched Soundscapes Vol.2, a sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

AudioThing Soundscapes Vol.2

Soundscapes Vol.2 includes soundscapes, textures and ambiences ready to use as Kontakt instruments or WAV loops. These sounds are divided into four categories: binaural, concrete, inductor and piezo.

Like Soundscapes Vol.1, the samples were recorded in different places across the world (Las Vegas, Dublin, Prague, Naples, and Cosenza) using studio or portable equipment. AudioThing used different types of microphones, including handmade piezo and inductor mics, a large condenser microphone and a binaural microphone set.

All samples are seamless loops, so if you don’t have Kontakt it is possible to load them directly into your DAW.

Soundscapes Vol.2 features

  • 35 Kontakt Instruments (.nki).
  • 35 Samples (48kHz / 24-bit).
  • Formats: Kontakt and WAV (loops).
  • Size: 207 MB.
  • Samples derived from: binaural recordings, inductor and piezo effects, mixed objects/places.

The library is available to purchase for the introductory price of 10 EUR until March 14th, 2014 (regular 12 EUR). Requires Kontakt 4.2.4+ or 5, full version.

Toontrack Ambient EZmix Pack

Toontrack has announced the release of the Ambient EZmix Pack, an expansion for the EZmix 2 multi-effect mix tool for Windows and Mac.

The Ambient EZmix Pack features a collection of settings specifically aimed at creating large, reverberant soundscapes. A creative toolbox, perfect for use in atmospheric compositions spanning anything from motion picture scores to modern pop and a wide array of other musical contexts.

It comes complete with ready-made amp/cab simulation settings for guitar and bass, including deep textures of bit crushed reverbs, bouncing delays and tremolos. Also, in addition to its settings tailored for vocals and drums, the Ambient EZmix Pack comes with a selection of signal chains designed to work on any melodic instrument – be it piano, organ, flute or guitar. But of course – any setting can be applied on whatever audio source you may have. A richly saturated guitar preset might just be the perfect fit for your piano. Or a daunting, backward vocal effect may very well be exactly what you wanted for your bass drum. It’s just a matter of picking, choosing and being creative.

Sweeping pads, flanged reverbs, slow, dwindling echoes – this truly is an inspiring set of tools that will add an instant new layer of creativity to any colorful, emotive or artistic expression.
