Nord has announced six new artist sound banks for the new Lead 4 and Lead 4R are now available for free download. They tell us that six very different sound designers have created a wide range of new sounds covering everything from classic analogue vintage leads and pads, FM pianos, evil distorted rave basses and complex performance patches with multilayered synchronized arpeggiating monsters and much more.
The sound creators are ASL SoundLab, Federico Solazzo, Åke Danielson, Palle Dahlstedt, Kristofer Ulfves and Ulf “Vinyl” Stenberg.
The sounds are compatible with the Nord Lead 4 and the Nord Lead 4R and are transferred using the Nord Sound Manager.

Tone2 Audiosoftware has released its FireBird 2 software synthesizer instrument for Windows as a free download.
Here’s what they have to say about the free soft synth:
After seven years of faithful service, the time has come to set the bird free. Firebird itself has become vintage and even though it’s no longer profitable to remain a commercial product, we feel that more people should deserve an opportunity to enjoy this sometimes heavily underestimated synthesizer.
Which is why we decided to release one last update and turn the product into freeware (previously $79). We want to say a big THANK YOU to all customers who supported the development of Firebird and other Tone2 products, by purchasing our software.
FireBird 2 for Windows is a free download here >>

J1000 has released two new free VST plug-ins for Windows. Here’s the details:
Parametric mixing equalizer based on MQ57. Most of the functions are the same, except that MQ55 operates only in stereo mode, has more flexible pass filters and has gain ratio that acts like dry/wet control. This is my go-to EQ for music production.
Three-band stereo processor that separates audio into low, mid and high frequencies and lets you manipulate their stereo properties – width and panning or rotation. Crossover points are easily adjusted with single knob. It has simple meters for each range showing correlation or panning. High-pass filter cuts unwanted frequencies on side channel for more stable bass.
All sounds are from the Arturia Minibrute. Spatial effects were created on the hats,toms, and bells, using the Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man and the Vermona Vintage Spring Reverb.
These sounds are free for you to use, but not to sell as a sample library.

Sonic Faction today announced Pathogen, a free wavetable instrument for Ableton Live.
Based on the classic oscillator of the The Sickness (which itself was originally sampled from the Virus TI), Pathogen has, according to Sonic Faction, “the DNA of a truly infectious synth.”
The instrument has three multi-sampled oscillators: Sawtooth, Pulse and Spectral Wave. The wavetable features 64 timbres ranging from “haunting” glass, bells, and mallets, to synthetic textures, “blurps” and bleeps.
A free VST virtual analog drum synthesizer with eight outputs, a separate effects section featuring a granulator and waveshaper for each output pair, MIDI automation and flexible sound design capabilities.
EXD-80 can produce a wide variety of drum and percussion sounds, from emulations of classic drum machines to mangled, glitchy madness. All sounds are synthesized, no samples are used. It is suitable for many EDM styles including electro, glitch, industrial, ambient, dubstep, drum & bass and hip hop.
