Thermionic Solid State Drums – collection of 11 old and new analog drum machines and 6 synths.

June 28, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

thermionic-solid-state-drums

Goldbaby has introduced Thermionic Solid State Drums, drums and FX created using a collection of 11 old and new analog drum machines and 6 synths.

Samples were recorded through a 1073 pre, then a Fat Bustard II valve mixer and various other high end studio gear.

Lots of the sounds have multiple samples for velocity mapping. Most of the kicks and congas are tuned. Also included are a bunch of analog sourced layering tools which are incredibly useful for beefing up kicks, adding sizzle to snares or transient clicks to kicks…

Drum machines used: CR8000 (Modded), Tempest, Tanzbar, DRM1 mkIII, M.Brane, Volca Beats, Mrs Bass Drum, Andromeda Space Rockers, Clap Trap, Thunderclap, Space Drum, D1000 (Valve drum machine).

Synths used: Prophet 12, PERfourMER, Leipzig-S, Analog Four, MS20, SH101

Contents:

  • 5070 x 24 bit wav samples
  • 38 x Bonus Rex loops
  • With support for Maschine, Geist, Battery 3, EXS-24, Reason Refill

May 20, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Elektron has released Analog Rytm OS 1.01, and update that introduces two new machines. BDFM (Bass drum FM) and SDFM (Snare drum FM) are based on linear FM synthesis and give the Analog Rytm with new sonic possibilities.

OS 1.01 introduces two new machines. BDFM (Bass drum FM) and SDFM (Snare drum FM) are based on linear FM synthesis and endow the Analog Rytm with even more sonic possibilities. Other improvements brought by OS 1.01 include more copy/paste options and several usability tweaks. For a full list of changes, see the documentation included with the upgrade zip-file.

Audio examples of the new FM machines in action can be found here: https://soundcloud.com/elektron/sets/…

Stunning analog drum machine with parameter locks, two kicks and 2 Step Sequencer Tracks.

Programming a Pattern on the MFB TANZBÄR. I could be easier, honestly. Since ethere is no display you must observe and read the red, yellow and green states of the LED carefully!!!

Specifications for Elektron’s new drum machine Analog Rytm

April 1, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

elektron-analog-rytm

Elektron has released full specs on the new Analog Rytm, its new drum machine.

Eight analog drum voices take advantage of several dedicated analog circuit designs, each of them tuned for generating a distinct class of analog drum sounds. For percussive flexibility, every voice can also be ‘spiced up’ with customizable samples.

Features:

  • 8 drum voices, each with: Specialized analog percussion sound generator. Sample playback. Analog multimode filter. Analog overdrive.
  • 12 velocity & pressure sensitive pads
  • Analog master compressor & distortion
  • Reverb & Delay send FX
  • World class Elektron step sequencer
  • Chromatic, Performance, and Scene modes
  • Performance oriented beat control
  • Individual voice outputs

Analog Rytm, the analog drum machine from Elektron, is just around the corner. Now the full specifications- and the first proper audio demos – have been published online. Elektron describes Analog Rytm as an 8 voice analog drum machine with sample support. The analog circuits and the sample engine are ingeniously handled by clever software. Drum pads and an Elektron sequencer provide maximized playability. Here’s some details in Elektron’s own words…

A more powerful drum machine
The Analog Rytm pushes the limit of what is possible to achieve with a single machine. The eight analog drum voices take advantage of several dedicated analog circuit designs, each of them fine-tuned for generating a distinct class of analog drum sounds. For ultimate percussive flexibility, every voice can also be spiced up with customizable samples. The perfect unity of analog drum sounds and samples simply goes beyond.

Beats with character
Plenty of tools are available for shaping the vibe of the beats. Affect every voice with its own analog multimode filter and analog overdrive circuit. To add shimmer and polish to the rhythms, the reverb and delay send FX will prove invaluable. And before the beats hit the sound system, the analog compressor and analog distortion of the master channel will ensure proper pump and grit. The sound of the Analog Rytm has no match.

Maximized playability
The twelve back-lit, velocity and pressure sensitive drum pads offer beat smiths a quick and spontaneous way of creating rhythms. At the same time, the critically acclaimed Elektron step sequencer offers features like manipulating sounds on a per sequencer step basis. The combination of drum pads and step sequencing gives both instant results and the opportunity of detailed editing. The ultimate beat is just around the corner.

Pricing: $1549 / 1489 Euro /£1249

It is not possible to order the Analog Rytm just yet, but you may sign-up to the waiting list to be notified the second it becomes available.

Britson – British Analogue Mixing Console Emulated

March 20, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

22557_4

Britson is designed to emulate both the workflow and sonic character of analog mixing consoles. While inspired by a classic British 8014 console, Britson has a personality all of its own and was modelled to impart that classic warm, open, three-dimensional sound. Details below:

One of the most difficult tasks, in my humble opinion, is to recreate the saturation characteristic of analog equipment.

Copying the harmonic content of a particular piece of equipment is not enough to generate a nice, convincing, analog-like saturation. Many other factors have a far more influential impact on the final sound.

We at Sonimus believe that the key is to analyze – analyzea thousand times – the behavior of the equipment to be modeled (for harmonic contentat different levels; transfer function and dc offset, depending on amplitude and frequency; dynamic content; etc.). Finally, much listening is required — which is definitely the most important factor.

Britson, besides being a subtle saturator, can be very aggressive if volume is increased from the input. Just like with a real unit, THD (total harmonic distortion) is low at normal levels, but can easily reach the clipping point without loss of dynamics at normal levels.Britson’s sound can be very aggressive without the need for a specific switch dedicated to that purpose.

We truly believe we have accomplished our goal of creating a product that will not only improve the sound of your mixes, but will also optimize and expedite your workflow, thanks to the “suitable” volume-leveling of your tracks possible throughBritson.
For this purpose, Britsonfeatures a carefully modeled VU Meter which behaves like a real VU Meter (It is fairly well known that VU Metering is much more useful than Peak Metering for the mixing process, since VU Meters behave in a fashion more similar to human hearing).

Britson features:

  • Flexibility to be used subtly or aggressively (to overdrive virtual or real instruments, for example)
  • Two Saturation Modes: Normal (subtle distortion, high dynamic range) and Fat (hotter signal, lower dynamic range)
  • Optional Stereo Crosstalk which lends a sense of depth and three-dimensionality to your mixes
  • Filters (both low and high pass). Britson’s filters are tuned to sound sweet and pleasant to the ear
  • Saturation which can be disabled (when using Britson for trim and metering purposes exclusively)
  • Three EQ Color Mode options(on Britson Buss instance) for use on your master track: Default (no color), Master Loudness, and Master Bright
  • Zero latency and no group delay
  • Carefully optimized algorithm for low CPU consumption. Britson allows for a remarkably high number of instances per session.
  • Internal 64-bit floating point double-precision
  • Hassle-free installation. No activation or serial. Each buyer receives a personalized copy for use in the studio, on the laptop, etc.

$39
