“Aaaand a new one. New trance and progressive sounds for Roland V-Synth / XT / GT, inspired by the Trance Around The World and A State Of Trance series. Different camera angle this time and I think this video is somewhat less awesome than usual… Anyway, enjoy this. =) For question, just ask.”
“Around the late 40s the atom was split… We discovered that everything was forever changed, when we discovered the word could be cut up, that sound could be cut up. That everything having to do with culture could be cut up and reassembled in ways that didn’t exist before. That will be seen as the most radical, important thing that happened this century” – Genesis P Orridge, Modulations
GlitchBreaks from Alex Matheu is a powerful iOS loop manipulation tool. Anyone who has seen, heard or played with it can vouch for its quality and flexibility. It puts buffer override, scrubbing, beat-juggling, and pitch and time stretching all within the palm of your hand, cheaply. We got so excited about this App we contacted GlitchBreaks about partnering, and the fruit of that can be seen in the 20 new free factory loops we provided for version 1.03.
We are pleased to premiere our first loop-pack intended for use with GlitchBreaks. Containing 49 high quality abstract 1 bar loops, this pack is designed for the glitchhead who can’t get enough. Already glitchy in their nature these loops will send you spinning off into microcosms of uncontrolled electronic pleasure when paired with GlitchBreaks. Prepare to travel down the rabbit hole, and bring your headlamp because the journey will get dark, dirty and shocking!
All loops are provided in 16-bit as well as high quality 24-bit files, for use in any desktop DAW and numerous other iOS apps.

Design the Media has released a new Ableton Live Pack designed by Tristan Héau, with a collection of more than 300 samples from the Russian Polivoks synth. They say that the sounds were carefully recorded, using an accurate tuner and Apogee preamps in order to catch that raw, nasty, analog sound from this eastern beast.
Tristan also created specific drum kits, Simpler presets (made from simpler and sampler live instruments) and custom instruments Racks (with esoteric macro knobs to be mapped to your favorite midi controller).
A spokesperson told us, “In the project folder under you will find all the samples organized by category. For example, you will find any possible combination of perfectly tuned oscillators of the polivoks – sine alone, sine with square, sine with triangle etc. All recorded waveforms were made with a tuner so that this material can be used more easily for sampling. You’ll be very surprised to hear how those analog waveforms sound. Then, they are some more classic waveforms – bass and lead sounds, all kind of noise sources, great feedback tones, and more exotic recording made while pushing this analog monster into his limit – hi rez, filter sweeps, unstable patches and more.”

New library released by TONSTURM, The Sound of Water.
With this soundpack you get a vast variety of deep, splashing, bubbling and bursting water sound effects recorded during extensive field recording sessions above and under the surface of water. The underwater sound effects of this library were captured with the mind blowing, high quality underwater stereo recording rig from Sonar Surround.
With TONSTURM 07 | The Sound Of Water you get 140 Soundfiles in Stereo, 24 Bit, 192 kHz. Over 4 GB of Data (@ 192 kHz) plus extra pitched down versions of the high resolution underwater recordings for convenience (additional 2,47 GB).
TONSTURM 07 is available for $99 (192kHz) or $84 (96kHz)
Hear water like you´ve never heard before!
The recordings for this soundpack took place at three different locations: Two beautiful lakes and one outdoor swimming pool. We recorded above and under the surface of water and used all kind of props to perform and capture characterful, deeply bubbling and bursting water sound effects.
For the underwater recordings we rented the high quality, mind blowing underwater stereo recording rig from Sonar Surround. These microphones are able to capture a huge frequency range between “5Hz to 85 kHz”! and their “enormous sensitivity and the resulting signal to noise ratio offer a usable dynamic range of more than 100dB. Thus, even the smallest grain of sand movement can be recorded without disturbing noise floor.“

Ableton Live Pack featuring vinyl crackle effect. This effect rack is designed to make your audio sound as if it were sampled from a vinyl record. It’s a modification of the vinyl distortion plug in, but will only introduce the crackles and pops when the audio is playing. Perfect for making drum samples sound like they were sampled from a record player.

Ableton Live comes with a cool little plug in called vinyl distortion. It adds a layer of record player crackles and pops over any track it is inserted on. This can be a great effect for adding a retro quality to your tracks.
Recently, I was playing around with some live drum samples I set up in an instrument rack and I wanted to create the illusion that those samples came from an old record. I placed the vinyl distortion plug in on the track, but it wasn’t the effect I was looking for. The plug in constantly emits a vinyl crackle. It doesn’t matter whether the song is playing or not, the vinyl distortion plug in is always outputting vinyl crackles. If my samples were taken off of a vinyl record, you would only hear the crackling while the sample is playing. To solve this problem I create this week’s free Ableton Live Rack: Vinyl Crackler.
