Soniccouture has released The Attic, a bundle of 10 virtual instruments for Native Instruments Kontakt.
The Attic : a project to document and sample interesting, characterful instruments that may not always be the obvious choice when we think of classics.
Instruments which, when added to a track, instantly add some special magic, even if it is due to the fact that it sounds a bit cheap or quirky.

Puremagnetik has released Ultrakord, an electronic instrument inspired by the extraordinary sounds & strumming interface of the Suzuki Omnichord.
An Omnichord is an electronic musical instrument, introduced in 1981 and manufactured by the Suzuki Musical Instrument Corporation.

The most basic method of playing the instrument is to press the chord buttons and swipe the touch plate with a finger or guitar pick in imitation of strumming a stringed instrument.

- Sampled Strums of all 84 Chord Variations for One-Finger-Play.
- Multi-sampled Bass and Melodic tones.
- Individual instrument modules as well as combined multi-channel instruments.
- Over 30 Loops of new accompaniment patterns.
