Homegrown Sounds releases Spark Infekted + Easter Sale

Homegrown Sounds has announced the release of Spark Infekted, a sample library for Arturia’s Spark Creative Drum Machine, featuring 500+ Basses, Leads, Synths and Pads.

Homegrown Sounds Spark Infekted

The sounds are all designed with an Access Virus TI Synthesizer. The samples themselves are mostly musically useful as opposed to wild Sound Effects, and are categorized by Collection and type as Bass, Leads, Synths and Pads. By default the instruments have a short decay time although they are large samples and so can be played for a much longer time, and additionally moving the start position can change the character.

Inside Spark all instruments must be created within a project to be visible inside the instrument browser, and so the sounds are in the form of 53 Projects to house the instruments. Each Instrument has a parametric EQ inserted for ease of mixing when used in your own projects, and a template is also available which includes a standard drum kit for slots 1-9 followed by 2 Basses, 2 Leads, 2 Synths and 2 Pads taking up slots 9-16. This makes selecting instruments much easier as the categories are predefined and so the browser will automatically open in the correct category.

As well as Velocity based single instrument versions of each sound, there are also Dual versions which use Threshold Mode instead to use a different sample for High and Low Velocities. These pairs can be very useful and inspiring for creating more complex patterns from a single Pad.

The Template Project is available as a free download which includes 8 sounds from the collection to get an idea of what the instruments are like in usage. Extract to your Spark Library/User Folder to enable in Spark.

Spark Infekted is available for the introductory price of $40 USD (regular $65 USD).

Homegrown Sound has also announced an Easter Sale, offering 25% off all its products.

To celebrate Easter Homegrown Sounds is having a 25% off sale throughout April, use the code CART25% on the checkout page to apply the discount to everything added to the cart.

Plughugger Virus TI Blue

Plughugger has announced the release of Virus TI Blue, a new soundset featuring pad sounds and synth strings for the Virus TI and Snow synthesizers from Access Music.

After years of focusing on bass sounds we decided to do explore pad sounds, and we started out with the Virus TI. Although the Virus TI does very well with basses and leads, it’s with pads its true strength lies. Or to put it plainly… The Virus is a true pad monster.

This collection of sounds contain 128 new sounds, and here we’ve tried to cover everything: vintage pads, massive modern megastacks, über-digital pads, pads with rhythmical movement, swells and mellow synth strings.

Each preset uses the three soft knobs, modulation wheel as well as aftertouch.

Virus TI Blue is available for the introductory price of 9.90 EUR until April 13th, 2014 (regular 14.90 EUR).

What sets a professional production apart from the rest? A build up and release of energy through various stages of the track’s progression.
