Sound modules (also known as romplers) can be pretty useful tools, especially if they come bundled with a collection of decent quality samples.
Kontakt Player, Sample Tank Free and Independence Free are a safe bet if you need some classic bread & butter sounds.All three come with more than decent factory libraries, packed with all sorts of different sounds – from electric pianos and bass guitars to orchestral instruments and synthesizer pads.POWER TIP: You can download additional sounds for Sample Tank Free on Sonik Synth 2, Sample Moog, Sample Tron and Miroslav Philharmonik product pages!Click the download button and follow the ‘download sounds’ link.Extract the contents to your Sample Tank Free ‘instruments’ folder and you’re done.Alchemy Player is the free version of Alchemy virtual synthesizer.
It comes with a 500MB factory bank and another bonus soundbank is available for free download once you’ve registered.
Ok, anyone that knows me knows that I just love free stuff !!
;o) So imagine my excitement when I stumbled across an item telling me that E-MU have decided to release their Proteus VX software instrument completely free of charge ! The only catch is that you have to subscribe to their newsletter.
Seems perfectly reasonable :o) Why are they giving it away ?
Well, of course there’s a reason and it’s because they are soon to be releasing the Emulator X3 Streaming Sampling Synthesizer software. As we release and launch E-MU’s next generation Emulator X3 Streaming Sampling Synthesizer software, E-MU celebrates and is pleased to announce that we will be providing the full version of our Proteus VX Software Sound Module software which includes the enhanced v2.0.1 Proteus X Composer Bank.
X2 prices have been tumbling as low as £69.99 at Digital Village so it was on the cards. (a special E-MU tweaked version of the Composer bank) that can be used in all versions of our Proteus X or Emulator X software.
