Nice demo of Analogue Solutions’ Europa unit

November 26, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Europa driving: two Seiko ds-250, two Kawai k5, two k3, jd800, Cz-1, and Pearl DRX1 (analog triggers)

key features of europa:
intuitive and simple programming procedure
no sub-menus or shift keys – one function per key*
simple to use – tr808/606 style programming.
has swing (shuffle!)
analogue features – analogue tempo clock, 7 analogue trigger outs, analogue sync signals
live editing features
transpose, octave shift, mute
rugged steel construction.
*the europa uses dynamically allocating function keys so that the button you need is always one hand without having to resort to something as arcane as a shift key.

europa is a hardware sequencer, it does not contain a ‘sound engine’. it has been designed from the ground up to be utilised with your midi synths, analogue modular, drum brains and drum machines.

use with your analog sequencer….it’s so cool!! eurpoa was designed to be utilised with our sq8 and oberkorn analogue sequencers (and anything else with a compatible clock input).

either use the main sync out or one of the seven trigger outputs to clock your analogue sequencers. have them step whenever you like by programming triggers into the europa sequencer. you can have 2 sequencers play alternately. you can mute the track so the oberkorn/sq8 sequencer stops! use another trigger and you can activate the reset feature of the oberkorn/sq8!

ORION – new drum library and step sequencer built for Native Instruments Kontakt

November 25, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

echo | collective has released ORION, a drum library and step sequencer built for Native Instruments Kontakt.

In addition to the sequencer, ORION contains over 800 unlocked one shot percussion sounds. These are arranged into 18 future-retro inspired drum kits created from custom-sampled and processed classic analog synths and drum machines, DSP-manipulated acoustic recordings, and a kit built entirely from processed vinyl pops and clicks. This includes three artist signature kits created by producers Vital, Phrakture, and Timecop 1983.

The ORION instrument is designed to allow fast, easy, and intuitive sequencing of the drum library using a unique dual-view sequencer: Step View mimics the sequencing style of classic drum machines focusing on one drum sound at a time, while Grid View shows the entire pattern, inspired by modern software and grid-controller hardware.

A user can delve deeper with the advanced step modulation sequencer for per-note control of every parameter of every sound on every beat. Sequenceable send effects include programmable reverb and delay.

A user can also add grit and glue to the beat with the insert effect module, delivering tape saturation, compression and a selection of custom tape hiss and vinyl noise floor recordings.


  • 24-bit 44k unlocked wav files.
  • 17 unique drum kits.
  • 60+ Kontakt fully programmed unlocked .nki files.
  • .nki files require full version of NI Kontakt 5.5 or higher.

Price: $30 [Limited introductory price].
