Producerloops Urban Legends Vol 1

'Urban Legends Vol 1' from Producer Loops fuses elements of EDM, Pop, RnB, Trap and Hip Hop to bring you five highly polished Construction Kits with an authentic Urban undertone. A full range of instrumention is included, from subtle pianos and sparse vocal fragments, to huge 808 basses, Trap-style hats/snares and breathtaking EDM leads and melodies. The loops in this pack have applications far outside of strictly Urban music, and can be re-combined in a near-limitless number of ways.

Presented as full stems for quick and easy integration into your projects, every loop, sample and hit in this product is presented to you in the highest quality, with one-shots and MIDI files included for producers who need extra control.

Several song sections are included with each kit, as well as one-shots for creating sampler patches and MIDI files for substituting your own synths for the pre-rendered ones.

Unlike most conventional Construction Kits, each song section is presented to you as "stems", meaning the entire duration of each element has been rendered. There's no need to reference the demo files and drag samples into the right place. Simply drag-and-drop to the first beat of your bar and everything syncs up perfectly.

MIDI Files Included:
Like so many other Producer Loops products, 'Urban Legends Vol 1' includes MIDI files for each Kit, allowing you to seamlessly mix your favourite synths and samplers with the sounds contained in the pack. Please note that these MIDI files are supplied as type 0, meaning the entire arrangement is contained within a single MIDI file.

Advantages of MIDI:
While the supplied ACID/Apple Loops/REX files are extremely flexible and powerful, MIDI has the added benefit of allowing you to go to extremes of pitch and tempo beyond which the loops were originally recorded, with no time stretching or pitch shifting artefacts. Furthermore, you can make tweaks to the riffs so they fit perfectly into your existing mixes.

One-Shot Samples:
This pack also includes one-shot samples, allowing you to create new beats, fills and loops to complement the existing material. Simply load them up into your sampler of choice and create an infinite number of new grooves and phrases.

Multiple Song Sections:
Each Kit comes complete with anything from three to seven distinct sections, such as;

In this way you can create complex arrangements that go far beyond simply building up or stripping down layers.

Royalty-Free:
All of the loops in this product are 100% Royalty-Free (including the vocal loops), so once purchased, you can use these loops in your commercial releases without having to pay any hidden costs.

Specifications:


Price and Availability:
'Urban Legends Vol 1' is available for instant download exclusively at ProducerLoops.com for £29.95 / 42,34 EUR. More information is available at the Producerloops website via the link.

Poseidon Synth for iPad released

Virsyn are happy to announce the release of Poseidon Synth for iPad - Poseidon Synth - The Ocean of Sound.

For all creatures in the ocean of sound - Sonic textures from other worlds, Analog signature sounds, Cut-through-the-mix leads and silkily smooth pads: Poseidon sets a new standard for sound design and ease of use. All of this was made possible through a combination of the familiar, conceptual simplicity of the analog synthesis and our frequency domain based Spectral modelling synthesis technology.



Spectral modelling synthesis
Select a basic sound model from over hundred delivered with Poseidon. The basic sound model determines the sound characteristic you want to start: taking a artificial model like “Sawtooth” gives you analog style sounds. Use complex models from analyzed samples for earth shaking ambients and evolving pads...

Native Instruments introduces SYMPHONY SERIES – STRING ENSEMBLE

Native Instruments today introduced SYMPHONY SERIES – STRING ENSEMBLE, delivering best-in-class recordings of a 60-piece string orchestra. The production-ready sound of STRING ENSEMBLE is controlled with an interface designed for fast scoring. The detailed recordings provide one-of-a-kind scoring features not found in other orchestral string instruments, providing professional film, gaming, and commercial scoring composers with the highest possible quality. The second in NI's growing range of SYMPHONY SERIES of premium orchestral scoring instruments.

SYMPHONY SERIES – STRING ENSEMBLE provides the sound of a full 60-piece string ensemble and was recorded in collaboration with top software string instrument developer Audiobro. There are separate instruments for violins, violas, cellos and basses as well as an instrument for the full ensemble. A comprehensive list of long and short articulations, including sordinos, trills, staccatos and octave runs, were recorded in exceptional detail with separate half sections to ensure True Divisi. STRING ENSEMBLE provides four stereo mixes – close, mid, far, and stereo – with dynamic loading for maximum efficiency. Special attention was given to the close mic mixes to deliver unsurpassed sound even when soloed – a significant achievement for a string library. Furthermore, volume, pan and output routing for each position load individually, allowing a greater degree of control over the final mix.

STRING ENSEMBLE delivers the most accurate re-creation of a full string ensemble to date in a scoring instrument. All sections were recorded in two separate A and B parts for True Divisi functionality. The Auto Divisi function intelligently distributes notes between the Divisi parts for a highly transparent and realistic string performance in all articulations. Every section also features true polyphonic legato and portamento in impeccable quality with up to eight-voice automatic voice-leading in real time. These features are easily configurable and, combined with Auto Divisi, allow composers to convey the true depth of emotion in their scores.

SYMPHONY SERIES – STRING ENSEMBLE was developed especially for KOMPLETE KONTROL S-Series keyboard integration. The position and type of key switches and the selected articulations are easily visible directly on the hardware. The Touch Strips directly control the multi-sampled dynamics in STRING ENSEMBLE. Plus, all key parameters automatically map to keyboard controls, allowing composers to start scoring as soon as they load the instrument.

SYMPHONY SERIES – STRING ENSEMBLE is available at the NI Online Shop for $499 / 499 € / ¥ 62,800 / £429 / $AU699

Symphony Series instruments will not be included in KOMPLETE or KOMPLETE ULTIMATE. Owners of KOMPLETE bundles benefit from special crossgrade pricing.

AmpliTube 4 offers more realism, more gear, better sound, more flexibility, more functionality, more tone and just plain more everything than ever before - quite simply, it's the ultimate guitar & bass tone studio ever released. And there are now multiple versions that let musicians tailor their AmpliTube experience for their specific needs.


Tailored tone
There are now 4 ways for musicians to experience the tone sculpting power of AmpliTube 4:

AmpliTube 4 is the major upgrade for existing users of all AmpliTube products as well as new users who want to experience all the cutting-edge features of the latest version of the ultimate guitar and bass tone studio. It comes with 9 amplifiers, 10 stompboxes, 10 cabinets, 29 vintage and modern speaker models, 3 microphones, 2 rack effects and 2 tuners. Players can restore all of their previously purchased gear models using the "restore my gear" feature in the AmpliTube Custom Shop.

This version is perfect for completely new users who want to jumpstart their inspiration with a massive spread of creative processing options to choose from.

AmpliTube Custom Shop is the free version of AmpliTube that's a great way to check out the ultimate guitar and bass tone studio. It lets users demo amps from the Custom Shop - all new features and gear are available via Custom Shop purchase.

And, for a limited time, in addition to these three versions, users can purchase the AmpliTube 4 + AmpliTube MESA/Boogie® Bundle. This special bundle lets musicians grab the two newest AmpliTube products for one seriously discounted price for a limited time. AmpliTube MESA/Boogie is the official collection of the iconic brand's most popular high-gain dream machines, all in one place. Players get official models of the Mark III, Mark IV, Dual and Triple Rectifiers and the TransAtlantic TA30.

Hyper-realistic features
If there's one word that defines the upgrades that AmpliTube 4 brings to the table, it's "hyperrealism." It brings together a number of first-of-their-kind features that let users interact with and experience their virtual gear in a way that feels as realistic and natural as having an actual physical piece of gear in the room.

The new Cab Room lets users mic their cabinets in a full selectable 3D recording environment with up to two microphones. It's the most realistic and advanced cabinet section ever made. In fact, it's so realistic that users can even customise their cabinets with different individually modelled speakers - AmpliTube 4 comes with 29 vintage and modern speakers to choose from. And they can pick and place different mics to find each speaker's "sweet spot." There's even a mixer that lets musicians mix the levels of their speaker mics, room ambience, direct amp signal and more.

AmpliTube 4 comes with 5 classic British amplifier models with matching cabinets that give users access to some of the best British tones of the '70s, '80s and '90s. Each amplifier has been modelled utilising a new-to-AmpliTube technology that precisely replicates the dynamic interaction between the power amp and the speakers.

Its new Acoustic Sim pedal lets players easily transform their electric guitar signal into a perfect acoustic guitar sound with the touch of a button. It also comes with UltraTuner, an extremely precise digital tuner and Looper, a 4-track MIDI-controllable recorder/looper that's perfect for sketches, practise and experimental performance. And, for more complex arrangements, AmpliTube 4 now also includes an 8-track DAW with full per-track EQ, pan, level, mute and solo functions.

But perhaps what's most exciting about AmpliTube 4 is that these features are just scratching the surface of all the creativity and sonic potential awaiting within.

AmpliTube 4 is available now via the IK Online Store and select music instrument retailers for just $/€149.99* or 150 Gear Credits from the AmpliTube Custom Shop.

Softube launches Fix Flanger and Doubler

From the mind of legendary audio equipment designer Paul Wolff comes the new Fix Flanger and Doubler. This package is made in collaboration with Swedish high-end plug-in developer Softube. Fix Flanger and Doubler takes the legacy and sound of classic flanging and vocal doubling of the 1960s, but with all the benefits of the digital world. Fix Flanger and Doubler will be available for purchase as of November 9, 2015.

In 1979, Paul Wolff formalized a vision which was turned into exclusive limited-edition hardware, later loved among musicians and sound engineers. In 2015, Fix Flanger and Doubler is the reincarnation of this vision — a plug-in package that handles hands-on flanging with unique stereo widening methods, as well as vocal doubling with lush chorus and rich textures.

Classic flanging reimagined
Fix Flanger is versatility personified — capable of both classic guitar pedal-style flanging with an automatically swept flange, as well as direct interaction in the manual mode. A VSO mode features unprecedented hands-on control with emulated servo motor bounce. Added features such as tap tempo sweep, unique stereo widening methods, and selectable delay polarity makes Fix Flanger the Swiss Army knife of flangers!

Doubling made simple
Fix Doubler delivers texture and extraordinary richness to vocals and polyphonic instruments. The streamlined interface, combined with Paul Wolff’s unique ‘Auto Double’ algorithm, makes it easier than ever to add lush chorus and rich layers to your vocal track.


The Fix Flanger and Doubler plug-in package will be available from November 9, 2015, priced at $149.00 USD/€114.00 EUR (excluding sales tax/VAT) from Softube’s authorized dealers, as well as from Softube’s own Web Store (where the price is circa 10% higher) here: http://www.softube.com/buy.php (An attractive introductory promotional price of $110.00 USD/€85.00 EUR runs until November 27, 2015.)

Please visit the Fix Flanger and Doubler product page for more information and a demonstration video; a free 20-day demo license can also be downloaded from here: http://www.softube.com/index.php?id=fixfd
