Producer Loops - LA Pop Sessions Vol 6


'LA Pop Sessions Vol 6' is the final installment in this stunning series that perfectly captures the vibe of West Coast Pop in five stunning Construction Kits packed full of memorable hooks and radio-ready chord progressions. Recorded and produced in the finest recording studios LA has to offer, this awesome pack brings the sound of LA straight to your studio. If you're looking to create Pop with attitude, 'LA Pop Sessions Vol 6' is for you, bringing you the cutting-edge sound of American Pop that's dominating the airwaves, in a feature rich Construction Kit format.

You'll find huge snares, bold bass lines, real guitar licks, and a modern edgy sound in five incredible multi-format Construction Kits.

Supplied in a variety of formats, this versatile product is your gateway to instant Pop hits.

Read on to find out more about the professional feature set including tail/release loops and MIDI files.

MIDI Files Included:

Like so many other Producer Loops products, 'LA Pop Sessions Vol 6' includes MIDI files for the majority of musical phrases heard in each Kit, allowing you to seamlessly mix your favourite synths and samplers with the sounds contained in the pack.

Advantages of MIDI:

While the supplied ACID/Apple Loops/REX content is 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:

Each Construction Kit features one-shot drum samples, allowing you to create new beats, fills and loops to compliment the existing material. Simply load them up into your sampler of choice and create an infinite number of new beats and phrases.

Dry/Wet Loops:

For users looking to simply drag and drop, the 'wet' files contain all of the effects processing heard in the audio demos. But for producers looking to create their own effects mix, 'dry' loops are also included. Don't like the wet loops? No problem, add your own effects.

Unlooped Riffs/Tails:

This sample library also comes with unlooped/tail versions allowing you to end a phrase with the decay of the reverb/delay applied to the loop, another "Producer Loops" exclusive product feature.

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:

  • 5 Construction Kits
  • ACIDized WAV Files
  • Apple Loops/AIFF Files
  • REX2 Loops
  • Reason ReFill
  • Loops sync to BPM
  • 44.1 kHz/24-Bit
  • PC/Mac Compatible

Binary Music - Energy Bow Guitar

Energy Bow Guitar For Kontakt 5

The Energy Bow Guitar library is an expressive Kontakt instrument made from recordings of a Fender American Standard Strat played with an E‑Bow. Sampled chromatically from a drop tuned D2 to A5. We fitted a Seymour Duncan Little '59 humbucker for extra sustain and everything was recorded cleanly through an Inward Connections Vac Rac 4000 pre-amp. 24 Bit/44.1kHz.


Features include:

  • Clean samples with three round-robins per note.
  • 'Character' samples with three round-robins. These are still non-distorted samples, but feature the bow occasionally touching the strings and other performance blips and can be selected by a key switch.
  • Harmonic samples with three round-robins. These were created with the E-Bow switch in the fundamental cancelling position and the modulation wheel can be used to crossfade into them. There are patches with these tuned to the same note (or octave) of the note played and natural patches, where the harmonic is as recorded - sometimes surprising!
  • Release samples.
  • Tempo syncable LFOs for vibrato and tremolo.
  • Sample start offset. We've retained the natural attack of the strings beginning to vibrate, but starting later in the sample is useful for faster phrases. This can be adjusted by a knob or by velocity.


The Electronic Bow (sometimes called an Energy Bow) was invented in 1969 by Greg Heet and became commercially available in 1976. It uses two electromagnetic coils to make a guitar string vibrate at a sympathetic frequency - one coil acts as a pickup and determines the freuency that the other coil emits - in a sort of feedback loop. The blue LED is purely to help aim it at the correct string.

Many artists have used an E-Bow, including David Gilmour, The Edge, Sigur Rós, Noel Gallagher, Martin Gore and of course Peter Buck on R.E.M.'s "E-Bow The Letter" !

Nucleus Soundlab - Analog Theory


Virtual Analog has come a long way. Take Korg's MonoPoly Rack Extension for example. Not only does it replicate the capabilities and sounds of this classic hardware synthesizer, but it exceeds the original with features like true polyphony and unison. In fact, MonoPoly is the perfect starting point for creating next-gen electronica timbres in Reason! It's only drawback is that it doesn't come packed with any Combinator patches whatsoever. Let's fix that, shall we? Introducing our latest ReFill - featuring MonoPoly - Analog Theory.

Analog Theory is a ReFill that pushes the boundaries of what is possible with Virtual Analog in the Reason environment. Our experienced sound design team has fused the classic power of MonoPoly with the flexibility of the Reason Combinator to create some very unique sounds. MonoPoly is filled to the electronic brim with thick chordal layers, expressive plucks, dubstep growlers, and gated atmospheres.

You won't be disappointed with Analog Theory's attention to detail. All the standard highlights of Nucleus SoundLab ReFills are still present: Unique Combinators with unique Combinator controls; MonoPoly patches that make up each Combinator are individually available; full categorization of both Combinators and device patches; careful volume-balancing for every single patch. Power-up your music with Analog Theory today!

  • 113 unique Combinators across ten categories.
  • 163 MonoPoly device patches.
  • 2 demo songs packed inside the ReFill.
  • All Combinator rotaries/buttons/modwheel uniquely mapped.
  • Patches designed by veteran Reason sound designers.
  • Requires: MonoPoly Rack Extension

Voxengo EBusLim

EBusLim is a brickwall peak limiter and loudness maximization plug-in for professional music production applications. EBusLim implements a single EL-4-based limiter mode originally designed in Elephant mastering limiter plug-in. This mode is suitable for bus, drum bus, master bus and track processing. The design idea behind EBusLim is to produce an extremely easy-to-use yet effective limiter.

Since EBusLim only features a single processing mode the processing latency was reduced down to 0.5 milliseconds permitting the use of this limiter as master bus overload protector for both stereo and multi-channel applications.

Applications

  • Bus peak limiter
  • Track compressor
  • Drum bus compressor
  • Mastering peak limiter
  • Loudness maximizer
  • Stereo, 5.1 surround mastering limiter


  • Elephant-quality limiter mode
  • 64-bit floating point processing
  • Extreme ease of use
  • All sample rates support
  • Stereo and multi-channel processing
  • 0.5 ms compensated processing latency

Demo limitationsProcessing output is muted for a moment every 45 seconds.
(Demo version is authorized with a product key, which is a text string - no challenge/response nor dongle required)

CompatibilityThis audio plugin can be loaded into any audio host application that conforms to the AudioUnit or VST plugin specification.

RTAS compatibility is available by using the FXpansion VST-RTAS adapter. AAX64 compatibility is available by using Blue Cat PatchWork.

This plug-in is compatible with Windows (32- and 64-bit Windows XP, Vista, 7 and later versions) and Mac OS X (10.5 and later versions, 32- and 64-bit, Intel processor-based) computers (2 GHz dual-core or faster processor with at least 1 GB of system RAM required). A separate binary distribution file is available for each target computer platform for each audio plug-in specification.
