Musicrow has released Golden Ensembles 3, a collection of 44 ensembles for Native Instruments Reaktor 5.
Golden Ensembles 3 now includes the two ‘mega-synths’ Ebola and Cobra, the new Bass Lab bass machine, and many other synthesizers and instruments. In addition, it contains classic processor emulations like Crow Tape Echo and Plate Reverb, and unique sound design tools such as the new Sound Pilot, Executer, and White FX.
New ensembles in Golden Ensembles 3:
Sound Pilot is a new breed of audio tool that blurs the difference between a sound processor and a sound generator. It is not an effect. It is not a synthesizer. It’s both: a sound processor that produces synthesized effects!
Bass Lab 2 is a dedicated bass synthesizer that uses powerful oscillators, super fast envelopes, a transient shaper, a bass booster, extended distortion section and other special features -for the creation of a vast range of fat and punchy electronic bass sounds.
Analogica filter offers high quality analog filter emulation, with a distinctive warm character. It combines a very intuitive interface, with many useful extra features and modulation options.
Phase Lab is a special tool for phase correction and comb filtering elimination. It is also a great creative tool for sound shaping, where you can radically change the tonal color of your sound by changing its phase settings (Instead of using an equalizer).
Green Master Tape is a new ¼” tape machine emulator that brings the typical characteristics of analog tapes to your digital studio.
Other ensembles were deeply revised with new features, sonic improvements, a new GUI and many new presets and sounds.
IceBreaker Audio has introduced Grid – a new 8×8 matrix sequencer for Native Instruments Reaktor:
GRID is designed to be a sound sequencer, it is neither a drum machine nor a sequenced synthesizer, but some kind of hybrid of the two. GRID was designed to have no tabs and a single set of controls for the sound source.
GRID is a perfect addition for any style of music; it can be bent and twisted into a variety of sounds. It is open to be used in whatever context you wish to use it. From minimal techno, to ambient soundscapes; 8-bit chip tune to distorted glitches ? GRID is what you make of it.
