"Stix305 – The SoundMaster Stix 305 is a very rare analogue drum machine from the early eighties. This WaveShaper sample pack is a quite unique occasion to meet this very little known and lovely beat box. Your tracks will get a great retro sound, whether you are an electronic funk producer, and acid freak or a true analogue sound lover. The Stix305 was recorded using some tube preamp and compressor and a vintage eq on top of it to keep the analogue vibe on the full recording chain."

Algo Operator – Algorithms, operators and opaque sub-menus programing : FM synthesis is not very friendly, but also a very rewarding world for creating new sounds, and a still rather unexplored territory when it comes to drum synthesis. With this new WaveShaper kit, don’t worry about spending hours programming, this sample pack is ready to use and generously gathers 250 percussive one shot samples created with FM synths. This kit was created by using mainly a Yamaha TX81-Z rackmount synth from 1987, with 12bit converters and a quite gritty sound. Don’t expect much to find the usual analogue-like drums samples, it’s all about designing abstract micro sounds, pure tones, sharp transients or percussion simulacra with a twist. Some well-known fm sounds from the 80s are also included to make this kit more than complete."

Zenhiser rilascia Turbo Risers vol 01

Zenhiser ha rilasciato Turbo Risers 01, una collezione di rises e falls.

"Spanning 200 killer uplifters, downshifters, super fast rise fx shots and incredibly long rise section this is a sample pack that can not be missed. We decided “Turbo Risers” had to be fast, accessible and supply a varied range of sound fx risers, falls and drops at the drop of the hat. As producers we thought “what do we want that we can’t get, even from our own Zenhiser sample library” and the answer was rise and fall fx in multiple varied lengths categorised into folders and ready to go. Not only that we wanted something a little different from the standard white noise sound, rises with power, drive ranging from 1 second fast sweeps through to 1.20 minute rise fx that would simply blow people away in the clubs. So we did it, and what an awesome collection of power rise fx to add to our ever growing Rise & Fall FX Collection"

Turbo Risers è in vendita a $24.99 AUD.
