HeadlessBuddha Samples releases Lo-Fi Wurly

HeadlessBuddha Samples has launched Lo-Fi Wurly, a virtual Wurlitzer piano instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

HeadlessBuddha Samples Lo-Fi Wurly

Few months ago, Sanches got his hands into his friend’s 200A Wurlitzer to record some lines for his psychedelic rock project. That Wurly sounded so raw and full of character and soul to his ears that he decided to keep some samples for him. He used two sets of gear to record these samples: The first was pretty lo-fi-ish and gritty; the second was more of a warm and semi-clean recording.

Lo-Fi Wurly features

  • 1 Kontakt instrument.
  • 4 Velocity layers.
  • A custom GUI with 4 effects (distortion, phaser, delay and convolution reverb).
  • 550 MB of 44.1kHz/16 bit .wav format samples.
  • All recorded on an old cassette tape recorder.
  • A set of 17 custom impulse responses.
  • Custom vibrato script controlled via Mod-wheel.

The sample library is available to purchase for $16 USD.

Arturia intros VOX Continental-V virtual organ instrument

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Mar 12, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Arturia has introduced VOX Continental-V, a virtual instrument emulation of the vintage Vox Continental 300 organ.

Arturia VOX Continental-V

As a high-end software recreation of the Sixties-vintage Vox Continental 300 transistor-based combo organ, VOX Continental-V is the latest addition to Arturia’s acclaimed Analog Classics lineup where it sits alongside an authentic recreation of another archetypal Sixties staple, Wurlitzer-V (based on the classic ‘Wurly’ electric piano).

Like the transcontinental history of the original Vox Continental, the road to creating VOX Continental-V was a long and winding affair. Arturia started its latest software developmental journey in the company of a rare Vox Continental 300 dual-manual model, capturing every nuance of the original right down to key contact timing and background noises — no elbows needed! Next, Arturia acquired a rare Jennings J70 — developer Tom Jennings’ Vox organ forerunner — and added a J70 Mode to the VOX Continental-V voice engine. End users have effectively ended up with two ultra-rare organs for the price of one as a result — with more tones to play with, which musically is a good thing to have!

The end result is surely the most authentic dual-manual Vox Continental 300 emulation that money can buy. Notable VOX Continental-V features include upper manual, lower manual, and bass pedal sections; multiple output effects processors; and independent channels per manual. Moreover, Expanded Mode adds a full compliment of drawbars for each harmonic; a new waveform drawbar on each section; several popular effects; Leslie™ and guitar amp simulator outputs; and an expanded percussion section. Similarly, Services Mode allows for individual tuning of each pitch — just like an original Vox; alterable key contact timing (to simulate older key contacts); and authentic background noise bleed control.

VOX Continental-V for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX/Standalone) will be available in late April, priced at 119 EUR / $129 USD.

  • 3 Velocity layers (one less than the full version).
  • No GUI (just a background image).

Gospel Musicians updates Neo-Soul Keys 5X Ultimate to v3.1

Gospel Musicians Neo-Soul Keys 5X Ultimate

Gospel Musicians has announced version 3.1 of the Neo-Soul Keys 5X Ultimate, a virtual instrument library for UVI & MachFive, featuring 5 electric piano emulations.

Neo-Soul Keys® is our flagship product and combining our samples with the UVI Workstation makes for an amazing electric piano experience.

When combined with advanced scripting and the amazing effects of the UVI Workstation, this is our best version yet.

Changes in Neo-Soul Keys 5X Ultimate v3.1

  • 24-bit sustain samples (10.5GB Total).
  • Added a new preset system so you don’t have to keep loading new presets every time. Now all of the presets are stored inside of one combo EP. You can also add your own presets within the new combo preset system. Just make sure you save the entire preset when making and saving within the system.
  • Includes Lite presets from the the 3X Lite version that was released previously. This version is for customers who use Mainstage and have to conserve CPU and RAM.
  • Now the sustain sample’s release matches the Kontakt version.
  • All LFO sync functions for effects, panning and volume are now accurate when syncing to a DAW. New algorithms have been applied.
  • Lower Volume Mechanics – Sometimes the Mechanical effects can be a little loud. A preset version is available that has lower volume mechanical effects for a more subtle mechanical sound.
  • Re-Calibrated the Amp Sims so that they don’t cause some patches to peak. Some amp sims have more energy than others and we calibrated the Amp sims thus not to peak.
  • Added two new UK Amp Sims for a super warm and deep bass sound. This is especially useful when playing key bass.
  • Created disk and arrow push-down icons for all preset menus. Previously there was no graphical indication when the effects preset’s arrow was pressed.
  • Added Volume and Pan vibrato/tremolo option. The vibrato panning function clashed in a weird way when combined with the chorus, flanger, and phaser. This is because these effects use panning already and combining the two summed the output.
  • The Auto-Wah now replaces the Funky Wah. As an update to the newest UVI workstation, there is now a new Wah-Wah effect that sounds great. Allows for you to use rate and depth for an Auto-Wah, or you can assign the Wah effect to a pedal controller by right clicking and learning.
  • The Suitcase tines are generally bright, but a darker Suitcase tine patch has been added for diversity and a darker EP tone.

Neo-Soul Keys 5X is available to purchase for $199.99 USD.
