PULSE – bass mayhem for Kontakt by Stretch That Note

Stretch That Note has announced the release of PULSE, a bass instrument for Native instruments Kontakt.

Stretch That Note PULSE
PULSE is the mutha of all bass modules and has been created for those with ‘issues’.

The idea behind this particular module was quite simple: to create a bass module that not only boasts some very distinct oscillators but also provides ‘layers’ to ..er…layer the primary oscillators with. These layers have been processed with comb filtering and some specific phase cancellation to provide acres of scope for layering sounds.

Married to this 7 oscillator facility comes a ton of warping and mauling tools. Ring, Scuzz, Chrome, Colour and so on, describe beautifully what the functions do and they came from a very disturbed place. And if that wasn’t enough, well, I threw in a detailed WOBBLE section for those of you that are into Dubstep. The rest is sheer saturation and distortion mayhem but in a clear kinda way…if you know what I ..er mean…

The Pulse library is available to purchase for $30 USD. Through June, 2012, a free bass module (LEWD or PULSE) is included with a purchase of the EPIC Series 1 bundle.

Stretch That Note releases Epic Series for Kontakt

Stretch That Note has announced EPIC, a series of electro percussion and orchestral hits modules for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Stretch That Note EPIC Series

EPIC is a suite of six hard-hitting electro-percussion and orchestral kits driven by a Kontakt-compatible engine featuring four unique Warping Machines. GRID offers real-time stretching and compression for granular mayhem, SCUZZ and TIME WARP independently change playback speed or pitch while preserving transients to alter size or scale, while FORMANT implants vocal/robotic characteristics.

The MOVEMENT module then lets you pan sounds in front, behind or even completely around you. You can also CRUMBLE samples bit by bit, add DARK grunge and AMBIENCE. Incredibly, all these features can be edited for each individual sound! The hundreds of raw EPIC samples have also been pre-treated using extensive processing for truly impressive results, even without these Machines in circuit.

However, like all STN products, EPIC’s real power lies in the layering process – you can stack and layer any of the EPIC modules and drumm kits to create really BIG sounds. EPIC – not only an electro-percussive sound module/sample library with effects and Warping Machines.

It’s a WEAPON!

The sample libraries are available to purchase at $30 USD each, or all 6 bundled for $150 USD.

Stretch That Note releases DruMM Series 3 for Kontakt

Stretch That Note has announced the release of DruMM Series 3, a collection of drum sound libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Stretch That Note DruMM Series 3 (Grime)

Series 3 includes 6 new modules with samples being processed with M/S, phase cancellation and some ethnic comb filtering.

The DruMM Layering concept is explored even further with Series 3 offering more manic frequency warping, more scratches and vinyl samples, and some knee ‘jellying’ percussion.

Each module has, as a demo, both video tutorials that show how to use DruMM plus displaying the content of each module.

The DruMM Series 3 instruments are available to purchase for $8 USD each, or $40 USD for the series.

Stretch That Note releases L.E.W.D – Low End Warp Device

Stretch That Note has released L.E.W.D, a sound library for Kontakt.

Stretch That Note LEWD

The idea behind L.E.W.D was to create an aesthetically and fully functional low end bass and kick module that would have the type of controls that I selfishly wanted. Ease of use and ‘fun’ were the main criteria for developing this product. To be able to dynamically affect every layer on the fly appealed to me greatly.

Chaining specific effects and dynamics into single function knobs and dials not only makes it easy to run deep edits on the go but it makes for a much more pleasing approach to sound design. Additionally, the whole concept of making everything simple and beautiful gave me an insight into how to design a functioning GUI whilst maintaining control. The decision to chain and condense effects and dynamics into single functions was made to help beginners and intermediates understand and utilize commonly desired processes.

The real power of L.E.W.D lies in the layering process. Each kick and sine layer has been meticulously processed to layer both in tune and harmonically with each other. Using phase cancellation, polarity inversion and M/S, specific frequencies have been dug out and others enriched so that when applying heavy overdriving and saturation effects the results are both genuine unique.

There are no limits as to what can be done with L.E.W.D and I implore you to abuse the beast as much as possible and enjoy the same mayhem that I have had such fun in being the cause of.

L.E.W.D features

  • 4 layers (synthetic kicks and sine based waveforms) with ADSR envelopes for each layer.
  • Global master section that contains the standard Amp Env, Tune, Velocity, Level and Amount for the whole module.
  • Central ‘hub’ section that handles varying forms of saturation and overdriving.
  • Additional controls for processing layers with specific EQ curves.
  • Reverse chop effect for dropping down basses. A slider that handles ‘rubber’, or bounce, values.
  • Glide function that does not behave like a standard Glide (more on this later).
  • Extensive Wobble section with full control over time and response values.
  • Waver section with full control over time and response values.

L.E.W.D. for Kontakt is available to purchase for $20 USD.

Stretch That Note releases DruMM Series 2 for Kontakt

Stretch That Note DruMM Series 2

Stretch That Note has announced the DruMM Series 2, a collection of 6 drum modules for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The DruMM Layering concept is explored even further with Series 2 offering more ‘mad scientist’ frequency management, more scratches and vinyl samples, more orchestral percussion and, my favourite, more ethnic and tibal samples.

Each module has, as a demo, both video tutorials that show how to use DruMM plus displaying the content of each module, and audio examples kindly donated by artists and designers.

New in DruMM Series 2

  • Midi Note Select has now been incorporated for instant sample editing.
  • Filter Amt range has been modified to provide a smooth yet more extreme filter response.
  • All hi hats are now voice grouped to allow for dynamic playing.

The DruMM Series 2 modules are available to purchase for $8 USD each, or bundled for $40 USD. DruMM Series 1 has also been updated to include all changes made to Series 2. The update is available to current users of DruMM Series 1 at no charge.

Stretch That Note releases DruMM for Kontakt

Stretch That Note has announced a range of seven Kontakt 3/4 compatible DruMM modules: one free, and six more that each cost just $8 per module, or $40 for the complete suite.

DruMM Big Grease Kit

Choosing the best sampled drum sounds for modern tracks can be extremely challenging, especially if you want them to cut through a busy mix. With this in mind, industry veteran Eddie Bazil has launched Stretch That Note, a new label specialising in Synthesis and Sound Design, along with its first set of products – a range of NI Kontakt Drum Modules.

Each of the seven available DruMM kits contains sixty carefully chosen drum sounds with bags of street character that can be individually or globally warped via a comprehensive engine, along with several sophisticated effect chains that alter Phatness and Crunch, add Vinyl grunge and alter Width. You can therefore quickly and easily create your own unique sounds with very versatile possibilities.

However, the pièce de résistance is the clever use of Mide/Side treatments, polarity inversion and phase cancellation, to allow multiple kits to be layered without suffering from the normal thinning and frequency cancelation problems. Just load up two or more different kits and trigger them simultaneously for some of the biggest drum sounds you’ve ever heard; almost guaranteed to cut through any mix when required.

Over the years Eddie has programmed new sounds for outfits as diverse as Pet Shop boys, Art Of Noise, Public Enemy and Emu/Ensoniq as well as many others, and his sounds have featured on many chart hits. Now you have the perfect chance to add them to your own tracks.

The DruMM modules for Kontakt are now available to purchase. Sign up at Stretch That Note and receive the first module DruMM free of charge.
