AfroDJMac releases Univox Bass Lucy free Ableton Live Pack

AfroDJMac has released Univox Bass Lucy, a free Live Pack featuring a sampled Univox bass from the 70′s.

AfroDJMac Univox Bass Lucy

I’ve had a lot of experience recording this bass, and I’m often torn on how to best record it. Running it through a bass amp is usually my first choice, but I also really like how it sounds coming out of my guitar amp. So what I did while sampling was run the bass through an SWR bass amp and my Fender Deluxe tube guitar amp. Also, I put up an AKG C414 mic in the room to capture both amps simultaneously. On the Ableton device, you can mix the three signals together to meet your taste.

When you pluck a string on a bass, it will always sound slightly different. So to emulate that, I recorded 3 different samples of each note that I recorded. I set the LFO in Sampler to play any of these three samples at random. That means that any melody you play will always sound slightly different. Even a MIDI clip will never loop in exactly the same way with the same samples. You will always get a bit of subtle variation, just as you would with a real bass player.

The Univox Bass Lucy pack is available as a free download at AfroDJMac.

40% off Jennings by Rhythmic Robot at VST Buzz

Rhythmic Robot Jennings

VST Buzz has announced a 40% discount on Jennings, a virtual instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt by Rhythmic Robot.

“Jennings” is a meticulously faithful recreation of one of the very first synthesisers -the valve-based Jennings Univox. The sound of the univox was a rich, warm, analogue wave which could be processed, adjusted and filtered using 12 “tabs” along the front of the keyboard. Cutting edge sampling and convolution techniques bring valves from seventy years ago back to life and put them right there in your DAW, ready to bathe everything in an amber glow (and a faint smell of warm crocodile skin). This is what synthesisers sounded like back at the dawn of an era. And you know what? They sounded good.

Jennings is rich, unique and raw – each preset was crafted with care and attention and provides an incredibly genuine and unusual sound. Its a Kontakt instrument you can’t afford to do without – whether you want authentic tones from the early days of synth history, or brand-new creations that still have that warmth and glow to them, Jennings delivers.

Jennings is available to purchase from VST Buzz for $45 USD until March 4th, 2014 (regular $75 USD).

Forgotten Keys releases Korg Mini-Pops 3 for Kontakt

Forgotten Keys has launched FK13: Korg Mini-Pops 3 (AKA Univox SR-55), a virtual drum machine instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

The MP-3 or SR-55, depending or where it was purchased, is an all analogue drum machine from the 1970s. Although it has less sounds that the MP-7/SR-95 it has more rhythm patterns due to the 36 variations of the swing/foxtrot rhythm.

The nine sounds are similar to the equivalents of the MP-7/SR-95 though the bass and cymbals are a little different. If you already have my FK1 Kontakt instrument there will not be a lot new here but I thought it was worth doing for a “no-brainer” price as I believe the current expression goes.

FK13: Korg Mini-Pops 3 features

  • 9 multi-sampled sounds.
  • 20 combinable re-created rhythms with 36 variations of the foxtrot/swing rhythm.
  • Volume, pan, tune and mute for each sound.
  • Note input and audio output routing.

The sample library costs £3 GBP.

Rhythmic Robot intros Jennings sound library for Kontakt

Rhythmic Robot Jennings

Rhythmic Robot has announced the release of Jennings, a synthesizer instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

We promised you our best synth ever. Well, here it is, guys: all the way from 1946, give a big warm hug to JENNINGS.

It’s a recreation of the Jennings Univox, an astonishingly cool dawn-of-an-era synth that got used by the Fab Four and wormed its way into the consciousness of a generation when it did that lead line on Telstar.

It sounds absolutely amazing, and we’ve expanded and enhanced it so that it goes waaaay beyond its roots. It’s been being soldered together on the lab bench for months, but finally, finally, it’s done. Now it can be yours!

Forgotten Keys Univox SR-95 / Keio Minipops MP-7 Drum Machine sample pack updated

Forgotten Keys Univox SR-95

Forgotten Keys has released version 2 of its Univox SR-95 / Keio Minipops MP-7 Drum Machine sample pack.

Version two is a major update of the Kontakt instrument file.

There is now a built-in rhythm pattern player with all the original rhythms from both the Univox SR-95 and Keio minipops MP-7. Rhythms can be combined just like the real thing, in fact you are able to create combinations unavailable on the real thing due to the way the selector buttons were shared between two rhythms.

You can also mute instrument groups (of which there are eight) and add “Imperfections” like velocity and timing variations. Sound groups can now also be panned.

The Univox SR-95 / Keio Minipops MP-7 sample pack is available to purchase for £3.50 GBP.
