606 Drums

Wave Alchemy 606 Drums

606 Drums by Wave Alchemy serves up 290 drum samples from Roland’s sought-after TR-606 drum machine. The samples included have been lovingly recorded through an API pre-amp with many sounds boasting multiple round robin variations, accent and velocity layers! 606 Drums contains four pre-mapped drum kit patches for use with Kontakt 2, 3, & 4 and Battery 3. Each kit makes extensive use of multiple velocity layers, round robin sample playback techniques and choke groups to create truly expressive sample instruments.

  • Stereo FX Kit – Includes 41 TR-606 drum samples which have been recorded and abused through a Moog Voyager’s stereo filtering capabilities whilst being controlled by a ton of MoogerFoogers and various other CV gear! This kit sounds almost totally unrecognisable to the true TR-606 sound…
  • Warm Kit – includes 40 TR-606 drum samples which have been treated to generous amounts of vintage compression, EQ and saturation from a range of Wave Alchemy’s extensive outboard collection! This kit includes 5 round robin samples per sound.

Transcending Music releases VCult, library for Nebula

Transcending Music VCult

Transcending Music has released VCult, a new program library for Acustica Audio Nebula.

VCult is based on a unique distortion/coloring box: The Culture Vulture. It can range from subtle distortion to more obvious color and character. The distortion is derivative of multiple tubes including 6AS6 as the main source. This library will give the flexibility between adding weight and color or obvious tone shaping.

Both presets, on all settings, will create “fullness.” Preset “P6” is inherently darker, rounder, warmer, and even fuller than preset “T”. Use P6 for solid and thick vibe with obvious tone right off the start.

VCult for Nebula is available to purchase for $20 USD. A free demo version for Nebula Pro and Nebula Free users is available from the Transcending Music website.

In true wave alchemy style each unit has been lovingly sampled with great care taken to capture the tone of the equipment used. All drum samples have been recorded through an API 512 pre-amp with many of the sounds featuring different saturation settings from outboard devices such as the Cranesong Hedd, Empirical Labs Fatso, Distressor and Thermionic Culture Vulture.
