We’re excited to announce the release of Megurine Luka V4X! The new version of Megurine Luka V4X contains 2 English and 2 Japanese databases which were elaborated for improving expressiveness. Each database was optimized for Cross Synthesis (voice morphing) and Growl functions which allow you to change the tension of the voice easily. In Japanese, you can choose voice variations at each note in the song by the newly Crypton-developed function called “E.V.E.C” (“Enhanced Voice Expression Control”).

Elastik 2.6 from Ueberschall presents a new way of thinking about time.
The new time-engine offers fast and easy access to all important tempo parameters. From the Time panel you can edit the groove of a sample with just a few clicks. Additionally Elastik 2.6 provides a number of different processing algorithms. For example the new advanced zPlane elastique pro v3 algorithm allows you to adjust the tempo of a loop over a much greater range while still preserving the quality of the sound – even when used with loops containing strong transients such as drums.
The time-engine also allows you to quickly edit a loop so that it takes on a triplet, half-time or even out-of-sync groove compared to your project tempo. In addition, using extreme tempo reductions with almost any sound can provide a source of drones or pads for sound design applications.
Furthermore the time option, in conjunction with sequence mode or automation, offers innovative new ways to alter the sound of your loops. By allowing you to easily apply effects like pitch, filter, formant, envelope and reverse into the mix on a per-slice basis. With the new update, Elastik 2.6 becomes the ideal creative tool for your individual sound.

Vintage Strings is a virtual instrument for Kontakt 5 designed to emulate the classic violin string section sounds of R&B, Soul, and Funk records from the 1960′s and 1970′s. Whether you’re an experienced arranger or casual producer, Vintage Strings was designed to make it quick and easy for you to create great sounding string tracks for your productions. Like its sister product, Vintage Horns, Vintage Strings was not designed to be a shiny, perfect sounding virtual instrument. Instead, we tried to capture the way string sections sounded back in the ’60s and ’70s; including the decidedly not classical playing style and minor imperfections that added character to those sections and made them sound so good.
For Vintage Strings we recorded a 6 piece violin section using vintage Neuman U-87 mics and Royer ribbon mics run through a great sounding SSL board. To capture a true vintage string sound, we used close mics, room mics, and string section positioning based on actual session notes from old Motown and Philly Soul recording sessions. Rather than record the violins in a magnificent concert hall or some other large and resonant recording space, we recorded our players in a funky old studio with a smaller, less-reverberant room that had characteristics similar to the rooms used to record classic Soul and R&B records.
