Samplerbanks releases Neo DJ FX sound effects library

Samplerbanks has announced the release of Neo DJ FX, a complete collection of sound FX’s for Dance genres and Film, Game, TV / Post & Cinematic use.

Samplerbanks Neo DJ FX

Most professional dance tracks are distinguished from amateurs not just by the right selection of sounds, the proper adjustment of equalization and dynamics processors and the art of mastering, but also by the smart selection of sound effects. The vibe of a track is greatly influenced by the choosen FX sounds, giving a polished touch for the final product.

Have you ever experienced you composed a great song but there was something missing? A common agreement among experienced producers and DJs is that the subtle and mature use of some sound fx’s may conjure an empty track into a breathing creation. Nevertheless, you still have to compose great ideas and create the vibe, but the use of FX elements helps to achieve these goals in nearly every genre of modern contemporary music.

The Neo DJ FX collection from Samplerbanks fulfills this requirement by offering a complete range of SFX for music producers and DJs.

Neo DJ FX features

  • 645 MB of cutting edge loops and samples (24-bit).
  • Includes 38 Seamless Noise and 55 (both harmonic and enharmonic) Synth Atmosphere loops plus the following one-shots: 42 Combined FXs, 30 long Cymbals, 20 special Doppler sounds, 51 Rise/ 52 Fall Drones, 50 Swishes, 48 thundering Impacts, 30 metalic Hits and even 20 great electro-cyber crackles and noises, recreated from the famous Transformers movies.
  • Software sampler presets included for Kontakt, HALion, EXS24, Reason NN-XT and sfz samplers.

Neo DJ FX is available to purchase as a download for $32 USD / £19.95 GBP / 22.95 EUR.

Short links for December 3rd, 2010

Some interesting things I found recently:

Designing Sound TV

# Designing Sound TV

Miguel Isaza introduces Designing Sound TV, Television for Sound Designers.

Could you imagine the concept of television re-imagined for sound designers only? How would that be?

How would be a Field Recording TV channel? or can you imagine a show where you can see how the sound of a recent film was done? or what about watching some channels where you can find other guys like you recording sounds outside the world? What if you could watch interviews with different sound designers each night while you drink a cup coffee?

Well, I’ve created something like that, but using the Internet. It’s called Designing Sound TV, a new website packed with lots videos about sound for films, video games, tv, and more. There you can find all kind of stuff on sound design, field reording, foley, mixing, and more.

# Hiphop Experience vol.4
Dmitry Vasilyev aka Cyberworm brings the fourth part in series of free hiphop drum loops (36 loops in stereo wav format, 24bit/44.1kHz, 43 MB).

# Music Kits #1: DIY guitar effect pedal kits

Music Thing is back! (though Tom notes that “Normal service will not, I’m afraid, be resumed…”)

After almost two years since the last blog post Tom Whitwell returns with a list of 23 DIY guitar effect pedal kits.

Music Thing DIY guitar effect pedal kits

Over the last couple of years, I’ve spent a few evenings building DIY guitar effects. It's fun to build things that you can use. If you want to get started, one of the hardest things is buying components. Try to buy a 10Ω resistor from Farnell, and you’re faced with a choice of 345 items. So, starting out buying a kit is a good idea. At least you’ll know the parts are right, even if when your soldering isn’t.

However, not many people sell kits. Despite the potential markup on a handful of bulk components, the customer service is – presumably – a nightmare. Here are 23 companies who will sell you complete component kits for guitar effects – many more people produce PCBs, or sell finished pedals. Stay tuned for similar lists on synths/noise boxes and tube amplifiers.

# Google Translate Beatboxing – If you haven’t heard about Google Translate’s beatboxing skills yet you probably spend a more than healthy amount of time away from the interwebs. Check it out, it’s cool.

# Home Recording Tactics

Home Recording Tactics

Jon Tidey at Audio Geek Zine shares some useful tips on editing & workflow as part of a series of 9 interviews with recording engineers from around the world.

What is Home Recording Tactics? This is a collection of audio interviews with 9 hard working, successful home studio engineers (including me). The interviews were led by Joe Gilder of Home Studio Corner. He got these guys to share all their secrets on a variety of home recording topics.

Also features sound design tips by Nick Maxwell of NicksTutorials.com

# Virtual Theremin Made with Kinect; Real Thereminists Will Make it Useful

Create Digital Music’s Peter Kirn writes:

Who says technology has to move fast and die young? Leon Theremin may have been a full century ahead of his time, before computers, before transistors, before jet engines or atomic power or rockets.

ReacTable creator Martin Kaltenbrunner has a virtual Theremin prototype built with Microsoft’s depth-sensing, 3D Kinect camera. And what he really needs is some players of the real Theremin to help develop it.

SoundCloud Record

# Capture And Share Your Sounds

SoundCloud’s iPhone app makes it easy to record and share your sounds from anywhere.

Today, we’re excited about the release of the recording feature.

The Record button will make it easy for you to capture all kinds of sounds right on SoundCloud & with the iPhone app and share them from anywhere to everywhere on the web: your website, social network profiles or simply between friends & family.

# TouchOSC for Android released

From hexler.net:

Friends of hand-held devices not sporting the omnipresent “i” prefix take note: TouchOSC for Android has been published on the Android Market! And it’s free. Free as in beer.
