u-he has announced an update for the Satin tape machine plugin, bringing NKS FX support, a tagged preset browser and more.

u he Satin NKS FX

Nothing else quite sounds like tape. Satin puts the legacy of tape recording in your hands: from top-of-the-line multi-track consoles to humble cassette decks. All the good (saturation, transient smoothing, compression) as well as the bad (noise modulation, flutter, hiss) qualities are under your control. Construct your (im)perfect tape machine.

This hotfix also solves a few preset browser problems (on all platforms) that arise while creating or duplicating folders.

Furthermore, u-he’s first soundset for Bazille has been released.

Vectors by Aiyn Zahev Sounds contains action-packed presets that transcend EDM: Pulsing arpeggios, glassy cityscapes, yearning synth leads and dark, grimy basses.

u he Vectors for Bazille by Aiyn Zahev

Vectors has you racing along gleaming futuristic highways, accompanied by breathtaking vistas of high-tech cyberpunk cities hiding their dark side behind a veneer of colourful lights.

Created by Aiyn Zahev, Vectors’ EDM/techno roots emanate from the pulsing arpeggios, but it also paints its glassy cityscapes with yearning synth leads and portrays its menacing side with dark, grimy basses.

Vectors contains 60 patches for Bazille that make heavy use of performance features like modwheel, aftertouch and breath control to further shape your sound.

The soundset is available for $15 USD ex. VAT where applicable.
