New SoundBlocks Feature X-Time Technology
Online PR News – 28-April-2009 – – WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA, April 23, 2009 — Samplebase® has released two brand new SoundBlocks now available for download at www.samplebase.com.
4th Floor - Tech | House | Electro - Side A and Side B are two collections of 4-on-the-floor House drum loops available exclusively at Samplebase.com for use in their Satellite® sample-synth player. Side A includes “straight ahead” House loops, while Side B is slightly more experimental, though still club-ready. Produced by Patchen, these creative loops work in an unusually broad range of tempos, thanks to Samplebase’s exclusive X-Time processing.
X-Time is a new technology developed by Samplebase that lets Samplebase developers “super-stretch” sliced loops with smooth and natural results. Not only does this increase the range of usable tempos for each loop, but it also improves the quality of sliced loops at any tempo.
The Satellite player cracks open a multitude of possibilities for instant mixing, mashing, and effects combinations within 4th Floor, eliminating a fundamental limitation of raw Wav or Rex download loops, There is immediate control over filter cutoff by moving Satellite’s mod wheel, which is coupled with 10 assignable filter types and resonance control. Eight “click and learn” Quick Edit knobs provide further immediate control. Each loop is broken out into stems, with individual volume, panning, effects, filters, lfo's, and envelopes.
4th Floor offers several loop combinations pre-built and ready for the trigger finger, including menus that allow for swapping sounds, and menus of kicks, snares, hats, fx, etc. Both collections also include a slice "kit" of every loop for creating new patterns. 4th Floor - Tech | House | Electro - Side A and Side B are perfect for most types of modern dance music, especially Tech, Minimal, and Electro House. Instant download: $29 each.
Samplebase.com is a website dedicated to offering thousands of high quality, downloadable production-ready Loops, Phrases, and Multisampled Instruments that cater to today’s “wired” musician. The sample-playback synth engines Satellite (free for all Samplebase users) and Satellite Pro run stand-alone on Macs and PCs, or as a plug-in in AU, VST, RTAS (Universal Binary on Mac) and VST, RTAS (PC) formats.
