Wave Alchemy has announced a free taster pack of the upcoming Synth Drums, a sample library featuring drum sounds from vintage synthesizers.
Imagine taking ten of the most sought-after vintage synthesizers in history, synthesizing hundreds of drum sounds with each instrument and processing each of these sounds individually using a carefully thought out high-end signal chain and you are getting a little closer to understanding the concept of our forthcoming Synth Drums sample library…
What synths have we used you might ask? Here is a list of the instruments used to create the raw source material for Synth Drums:
Roland Jupiter 8, Roland System-100 (101, 102, 104), Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 2, Sequential Circuits Pro One, Korg MS-20, ARP Odyssey MK1, Moog Minimoog Model D, Oberheim OB8, Roland Juno 106, Roland SH-09.
When complete (soon!) Synth Drums will contain thousands of unique, 100% original synthesized drum hits and percussive samples. We wanted the library to be as flexible as possible, and so we have decided to include all of the unprocessed synthesized source material, as well as expertly processed versions of each and every drum sound (including analogue tape and vinyl variations)!
The free Synth Drums taster pack includes 200 processed drum sounds taken directly from the forthcoming library. The full Synth Drums Collection is scheduled for release in mid-April.

Wave Alchemy has announced the release of its new Loop Tools & Grooves sample library.

Wave Alchemy has announced Bass Pedals Light, a slimmed down version of the Kontakt instrument, and an Ableton Live Pack version of the sound library featuring the sounds of the Moog Taurus.
Inspired by the sought-after Moog Taurus Mk1 bass synthesizer, Bass Pedals combines powerful analogue source sounds with modern sound shaping capabilities to create a versatile and fully programmable bass synthesizer!
Bass Pedals Light offers the same functionality, extensive GUI controls and core content as the standard version, minus the 3 X round robin sample variations – which in turn reduces the library size from 4.5GB to just 1.9GB.
The Ableton Live Pack version does not have the graphical interface as seen in the Kontakt version, macro controls only. The Live version contains 1400+ raw Moog Taurus multi-samples (2GB) which are mapped to create 39 Sampler/Simpler presets and instrument racks with assigned macros for easy editing.
Bass Pedals Light for Kontakt costs £22.95 GBP, the Live Pack is £19.95 GBP.
