TR MKII has been “fully redesigned and re-scripted from the ground up.” Designers have tweaked the workflow and added a new, more intuitive graphical interface, a ‘TR style’ 16-track step sequencer, unified instruments for both the 808 and 909, a dedicated 10-track mixer with individual processing, reverb / delay sends, volume control and pan for each drum sound, a master tape section with individual tape saturation per sound, and so on.
Pricing and Availability. Wave Alchemy’s Transistor Revolution MKII is available from Wave Alchemy for £89.95 – $137US. Existing owners of the previous version, Transistor Revolution MKI, can upgrade to TR MKII for £10 ($16US).

In the late 70′s Korg experimented with a machine for players looking for a simpler alternative to knobby synthesizers. The result was the Sigma, a bi-timbric semi-preset synth with rocker-tabs, micro knobs and two X-Y joystic controls. The Korg Sigma is based on 19 VCOs grouped in two discrete sections (Synthe and Instrument) that can be cross-modulated and filtered with a LP/HP Filter. Each VCO is equipped with a single dedicated control including Korg35 filter circuits for shaping the sounds. Continue reading
Max Million has released a new sound library, the second and final part of the Discrete Energy series:
Discrete Energy II provides the backbone for Glitch | IDM | Breaks or other forms of EDM music production.
Includes 443 MB of highly original and inspiring audio content. Every sample is as usable and fresh as humanly possible.
Sample Anatomy has just released a new sound library, Future Trap and Glitch, which they’ve dubbed (ha) a construction kit for Trap, GltichHop, Dubstep or Broken Beat producers.
The creators have organized the sounds in Future Trap and Glitch into “kits” made up of different classes of “grooves,” collections of loops that all fit together. The user can then pull apart the anatomy of these grooves and use them as is, or remix and “remangle” to their hearts’ content. A total of 16 “grooves” come in two BPMs covering the lower and upper tempos: 100 and 140 Beats Per Minute. Continue reading

“These libraries are usually spread out over a huge number of individual sites, making it really tricky to find relevant sfx from the independent community,” says creator Asbjoern Andersen. “I thought it was a real shame, as they do some amazing stuff – so I’ve managed to get 25 indie sound designers and recordists on board to showcase more than 80 of their libraries.”
At A Sound Effect, you can browse, preview, search and find specific libraries from all 25 sound designers. See the site for more info.
