ModeAudio Dust Road for NI Massive 15% discount for rekkerd.org readers

ModeAudio is offering rekkerd.org readers a limited time 15% discount on Dust Road, a collection of 50 vintage presets for Native Instruments Massive.

“But Massive is digital, it can’t possibly produce a sound like analogue!?” we hear you cry. Think again! The dazzling variety of sampled waveforms, resonant filter choices and dizzyingly complex modulation capabilities allow Massive to conjure up sounds every bit as lush, unstable and warm as its analogue counterparts.

Dust Road exploits these abilities entirely, bending pitches, blending waveforms, blurring filters and blitzing standard routings, all to gorgeous effect. Hear the decayed, constantly-shifting sound of analogue audio come to life, complete with full sound sculpting options. Every macro control of every preset has been hot-wired to give you full access to and control of your sound.

Dust Road is available to purchase at a 15% discount by using coupon code DUSTRKRD15 at checkout. This offer expires Wednesday, March 19th, 2014.

Check out my review of the soundset here.

Industrial Strength intros Evan Panzer Brooklyn Breaks

Industrial Strength Records has launched Evan Panzer Brooklyn Breaks, a new collection of live drum loops and samples.

Evan Panzer Brooklyn Breaks

Drive the beat home with this rock-solid Live Drum Pack from Industrial Strength Samples. With more than 700 MB of old-school Vintage Style Breakbeats keyed across all tempos, Evan Pazner Brooklyn Breaks cuts authentic grooves for any modern track looking for a little Brooklyn love.

This fierce audio set comes clanging out of Willamsburg, Brooklyn, where these homegrown sounds were produced by studio mavericks Derek Nievergelt and Lenny Dee using pro mics and super vintage preamps. All stems and loops were hand-cut by Justin Garish to create natural grooves that lock to any tempo. These pumped-up sounds still leave loads of headroom for you to do your thing. Virtuosic session drummer Evan Pazner performed each loop live to create an arsenal of tight, flexible sounds that work magic in any style from Nu Soul and Funky breaks to dirty DnB and booming Hip Hop.

Unlock a slew of original Live Drum Loops. Each loop can be dissected into its dry stems so you can riff up a storm, rearranging, flipping, and creating completely new rhythms. What’s more, you’ll find a selection of mixed loops and cuts prepped by the inventive Lenny Dee, the master of edgy and organic.

The sample pack is available to purchase for £29.95 GBP.

Akai Pro intros Rhythm Wolf analog drum machine & bass synth

Akai Professional has announced Rhythm Wolf, an analog drum machine and bass synthesizer module with built-in sequencing.

Akai Rhythm Wolf

The Rhythm Wolf is an authentic analog instrument that combines the coveted sounds of early electronic and hip-hop music with genuine Akai Professional workflow. Inspired by the classic analog beat machines and synthesizers of the past, Rhythm Wolf enables today’s musicians to harness iconic analog sounds for music production and performance. The drum machine consists of five highly-tweakable drum sounds and includes a kick, snare, open & closed hi-hat, and metallic percussion. Onboard controls allow users to customize the tuning, amplitude envelopes, and volume of each drum voice separately for precise real-time adjustment. The bass synthesizer features a selectable oscillator (sawtooth or square wave), classic filter design, a filter envelope with variable decay, and is capable of creating powerful bass sounds and squelchy leads.

Outfitted with six genuine MPC pads and a built-in 32-step sequencer, the Rhythm Wolf provides an ultra-responsive interface with a classic drum machine layout. Drum patterns can be fine-tuned using the Swing function, Pattern Select, and Tempo Control knob. A custom distortion signal path, activated by the “Howl” knob, adds grit and character for additional tone shaping. Rhythm Wolf features USB-MIDI, MIDI In/Out, a gate trigger, and integrates seamlessly with modern and vintage equipment. Two audio outputs enable producers and performers to mix percussion sounds and bass independently.

Rhythm Wolf features

  • 5-voice analog drum machine and synth—authentic analog design that references classic rhythm machines and synthesizers.
  • Legendary analog drum sounds—kick, snare, open & closed hi-hat, and metallic percussion.
  • Synth-bass module—selectable square or sawtooth wave with classic filter design for warm, deep basses and squelchy leads..
  • Onboard 32-step sequencer—classic drum machine workflow for quickly laying down grooves and melodies.
  • Six genuine MPC pads—responsive controls for sequencing and finger drumming.
  • Howl knob—custom distortion circuit for additional sound design.
  • USB-MIDI and MIDI In/Out—flexible MIDI connectivity for easy integration into modern studios.
  • Gate Trigger—triggering via modular synths, vintage sequencers, or external sound sources.

The Rhythm Wolf will be available in Summer 2014, distributed worldwide with a $199.99 USD street price.

Akai Professional will unveil the Rhythm Wolf at Musikmesse, Hall 5.1, Booth B45, March 12-15 in Frankfurt, Germany.

FXpansion releases Vintage DrumBox Geist Expander

FXpansion has announced the release of Vintage DrumBox, a collection of synthesized analogue drum samples for the Geist drum instrument for Windows and Mac.

FXpansion Vintage DrumBox

Created by Mr Hoodie from The Groove Criminals, Vintage DrumBox is the result of obsessively sampling a set of strange, esoteric and crusty old machines. The included sounds are warm, rounded and perfect as an antidote or accompaniment to more modern timbres. The pack also features a bonus selection of riffs and arps from some classic analogue synths.

Some highlights of Vintage DrumBox include early preset accompaniment and organ-top boxes like the Hammond AutoVari and Watford Rhythm Generator, Amdek and Electro Harmonix percussion tone generators and rare drum machines such as the Vermona DRM-1. Legendary analogue BBD delay, tape echoes and spring reverbs are judiciously used to add further textures and flavours.

Vintage DrumBox features loops, kits and presets for FXpansion’s Geist software. Samples are supplied in 24-bit 44.1kHz WAV and RX2 formats and can be loaded into any software or hardware that supports them.

Vintage DrumBox is available to purchase for $29 USD / 25 EUR / £22 GBP inc VAT for all registered Geist owners.
