The Free Collection - for Kontakt 5 (Sound Effects Libraries)

echo | collective has released The Free Collection for Kontakt 5,
a suite of 4 Soundminer metadata tagged sound effects libraries,
each with a Kontakt instrument.

Camera: a Kontakt instrument and a series of samples that come from
some custom recordings of the venerable Canon 7D. It is useful for both
creating clean, straight camera sounds and as elements for clicky UI type designs.
There are also some cool designed shutter snaps that are bigger and more stylized
than the flat, clean ones.

Shrieking Dulcimer: an instrument based on the bows, scratches and dissonant
impacts of an old dulcimer recorded by Evan Arnett and Justin Shelton.
It does similar horror and creepy type musical things.

Malfunktion: a series of recordings from various software synths that
echo | collective use to create fun glitches as well as UI beeps and clicks.
It's another toolkit of strange sounds that are useful in adding spice to interface
sound design. The Kontakt instrument adds a layer of randomness that a user can create
interesting movements with by playing the same groups of keys repeatedly.

Micro Magnetic comes from a pair of magnets that are shaped like eggs and sound like
rattlesnakes as the magnetic pull causes them to collide faster and faster.
They are designed to make a super cool texture for electronic music and other
rhythmic compositions.

Price: Free.

Audacity 2.0.5 (Update)

Audacity® is free, open source, cross-platform software for recording and editing sounds.

Audacity is available for Windows®, Mac®, GNU/Linux® and other operating systems.

October 21, 2013: Audacity 2.0.5 Released

Audacity 2.0.5 replaces all previous versions. It fixes crashes or hangs that were
reported in Audacity 2.0.4 on some machines, and contains many other bug fixes and
stability improvements.

-(OS X) Crashes when importing audio files are fixed.
-(OS X) Files can now be opened using Finder "Open with", and by double-click or dragging to the  Audacity icon.
-(OS X) Audio Unit plug-ins are not loaded until used. This makes Audacity start faster and avoids  startup crashes due to incompatible plug-ins.
-(Windows) On a very few machines, the Windows WDM-KS low latency host caused Audacity 2.0.4 to hang or  the computer to crash. WDM-KS has been removed from Audacity 2.0.5 while we work on safely enabling  this host. WDM-KS will still be available for testing in the Windows alpha development builds.
-(Windows) Fixed a bug where Audacity would not record until the current input was reselected.
-(Linux) You can now navigate through an effect or other dialog using keyboard TAB.

Other bugs have been fixed, notably shaped dither being too loud, as detailed in the 2.0.5 Release Notes:

4Front R - Piano

This is a vintage piano module with a characteristic recognisable sound
and a gentle overdrive.

This module reproduces the classic sound similar to RSP73 pianos, however
is not identical. The sound generation is not entirely based upon samples,
thus there are 127 continous layers provided with a vintage rhodes smooth overdrive.

Unlike many other software modules and samplers, this module will never overload CPU.
It will never stick notes, and never interrupt the sound during live performances.

Though this goes without saying for professional users, I still had a frequent
question on how to use this plugin from people, who are not familiar with this
technolog. One should note, that to make use of this software a plugin hosting
software is necessary, such as Topten Cantabile software. A MIDI keyboard is also
preferred, as it is something almost essential to create a computer music these days.

There is also 4Front E-Piano, which replicates a different type of E-Piano::

Ohm Studio - Free


Together sounds better

Ohm Studio is the first real-time collaborative digital audio workstation.
Start a project, invite musicians and make music together.
It's as simple as that.

Ohm Force has announced the release of Ohm Studio, which they describe as
"the only pro-grade DAW that allows for online cloud-based collaboration
- a technical challenge that explains why it took so long and why Ohm Studio
is the only DAW to offer online collaboration to date".

As opposed to other DAWs that culturally promote the idea that one guy can do
it all, Ohm Force understands that the music most people listen to is very rarely
made by one person alone. In this age of the Internet, having access to a world
of talented people to do instrument recording, arranging, producing will be brought
back to the core experience of computer music making. Collaborative features as well
as a UI with a gentle learning curve and pro-grade audio performance complete the
approach that sums up Ohm Studio.

Watch Video::

Ohm Studio is both a software and a service. You can go for free offers for both,
or buy both, or any combination of the two:

Ohm Studio (free) includes a basic production suite, free partner plugins (Hybrit amp sim from Lepou and Voxengo's Old Skool Verb), exclusive UVI-made Ohm Studio multi-instrument (with 1.5 GB of sounds), Frohmage filter and all of the Ohm Studio features with two exceptions: recording is limited to 16-bits and export to high quality compressed audio.

Ohm Studio Pro (€39 eurozone, ~$42 everywhere else) includes all of this, gets rid of the two limitations and also includes the OhmBoyz delay and Minimonsta synth.

Ohm Studio Pro XXL (€99 eurozone, ~$107 everywhere else) includes everything from the Pro version plus Ohmicide distortion, Quad Frohmage filterbank, Predatohm distortion, Hematohm frequency shifter, Ohmygod! comb filter, Mobilohm phaser and Oddity synth.

SynthFont is a program for editing and playing midi files using various sound
source files like SoundFonts, GigaSampler files, SFZ files and more.
VST instruments can also be used instead of a sound source file. A midi file is
different from - for instance - a MP3 file in that the file does not contain any
audio data. The file is a collection of notes and instructions for how to play them.
SynthFont combines this data with the audio data in a SoundFont to produce
("render") an audio version of the song.
