"If you'd like to know more about the Smpltrek then please visit the Sonicware website:
SmplTrek v2.0 update guide:
SmplTrek v2.0 firmware:

The new features of SmplTrek v2.0:

Quick sampling
By putting pressure on the track pad, you can easily record a sample and then use that sample in a new track.
⁃ The new sampling procedure has made sampling faster by allowing the user to set the normalize, save location, and auto saving settings in advance.
⁃ The monitor output method has been revised so that the speaker can be used even when the built-in microphone is selected on the REC source.

Unquantized recording using real-time recording of micro timing
The micro timing of finger drumming and instrument playing with the pads can be recorded in real time in the sequencer to allow unquantized recording. (72 ppqn)
⁃ Micro timing can now be edited for each note.
⁃ Note-off timing can also be recorded and edited on Instrument tracks.

Swing functions
Swing can be set per track or clip. (0-75%)

Duplication of a sequence
A sequence created on the Drum, Inst, MIDI, and Shot track can be duplicated by pressing the DUP(C) button, doubling the length of the sequence.

Further Drum track improvements
⁃ Level, Pan, Pitch, and Effect Send for each instrument in the drum kit can be adjusted while the Drum track is playing.
⁃ The tempo can be changed on the Drum track (tap tempo can be achieved by pressing the knob).
⁃ Over 300 basic drum patterns to choose from.
⁃ 3 new drum kits have been added.
- “Ski Beatz” Smack pack selection kit
- Cinematic Indian Percussion kit
- GB Drum kit

Global Audio track has been optimized
⁃ The waveform display is now easier to read.
- Input level meter has been added.
(To delete the switching point of the virtual tracks, press the REC key twice and press CLR in recording standby.)
- You can replace the Global audio files in the SD card.

1) Delete the virtual track files (.wav and .wdt files) you want to replace in the SmplTrek/Project/(project name)/Audio/Global folder on the SD card. (Example: global1-1.wav, global1-1.wdt)

2) Rename the new .wav file (16bit-48kHz mono, up to 2GB) you want to replace with the same name as the deleted file and place it in the same folder. (Example: global1-1.wav)

When you load the project on SmplTrek, the replacement will be reflected.

Effects Improvements
⁃ Revised parameters for ‘Vinyl’ and ‘Cassette’.
⁃ Added bit crush to ‘Crusher’.

Other improvements
⁃ Pitch of the Instrument track can be adjusted while playing.
⁃ You can switch the display between the tracks while keeping the edit screen open. (press the func+TRK pad)
⁃ When loading a sample into the Loop track, you can set start and end points and select the number of bars in that range to see the exact BPM.
⁃ Sample selection for each instrument in the Drum Kit Edit can now be easily auditioned and selected from the folder by simply turning the A knob.
⁃ Program change messages can now be transmitted from the MIDI track automation. (The switching Scene has been changed to CC31:SCENE PLAYBACK)
⁃ And several bug fixes and improvements."

Roland JUNO-106 Software Synthesizer v2 Overview
video upload by

"Introduced in 1984 as an affordable polysynth for the masses, the Roland JUNO-106 surpassed its humble beginnings to become one of the most beloved instruments of all time—and for good reason. It delivers gut-punching basses, delicate plucked sounds, and shimmering pads that sit perfectly in a mix, and its built-in chorus is the stuff of legend.

Sequential Circuits Pro-One w/ Custom Knobs & Moog Soft Case

via this auction

"The knobs are NOT original, but carefully laid out by myself for quick and easy visual identification. For the most part, every knob on the synth related to each section is a certain type. For example- Oscillator A is one type, Oscillator B has another type of knob, etc. etc. The master volume output knob (far right) is huge and feels so smooth to turn.

BIG NOTE- this comes with a Moog gig bag that fits the synth perfectly. I believe the bag was made for the Moog Sub37 and Little Phatty, but the Pro One REALLY fits well. Has a velcro handle, a shoulder strap, and a pouch to store cables, etc. Those bags aren't made anymore, and new they were about $80.

If you REALLY want the original knobs, they're about $150 per set online."

Tasty Chips Introduces The Integral Dual Convolver Pedal

Demonstration video upload by Tasty Chips

"The Integral Dual Convolver Pedal

Convolution works with Impulse Responses, which can be added to the Integral via USB. This means it is not limited to just reverberation IR samples. IR's could also be something like delays, filter banks, resonators, Foley sounds and even recordings directly into the pedal itself. This versatile device is a great addition to any pedal board and sparks a ton of creativity.

Massive Eurorack Drums & Beyond // Steady State Fate Entity Ultra Perc

video upload by DivKid

Also see SSF Entity Ultra Perc Preview

"Here we have the vastly powerful and highly flexibly ENTITY ULTRA PERC from SSF (Steady State Fate). This module continues and develops on the Entity Percussion Synthesiser and is part of the drum line up for SSF right alongside the ENTITY ULTRA KICK.

The ULTRA PERC features lots of modular building blocks inside its circuits including two resonant filter cores, a wave folder, filtered noise generator, trigger delays, envelopes, VCAs and more. It’s a whole mini modular system in a module that while focussed on percussion sounds can be used as a processor for external signals. You’ll see anything from west coast style synth voices through the broken tape machine style FX processing in the video … among the more obvious wide range of drum sounds.

It’s 100% analog (despite some digital FM like tones at times) and to be blunt it is utterly impressive, vast in its potential yet still easy to dial in great sounds.

White Rabbit | by Error Instruments & This is not RocketScience

video upload by Cinematic Laboratory

"I noticed a White Rabbit PCB when I visited TiNRS HQ in Amsterdam (and space orbit) a few months ago and found out it was an Error Instruments FX module with a TiNRS engine. A week later, I saw Paul Tas (Error) perform with it at a SAW performance. (SAW is a brand new modular channel dedicated to modular artists performing in an industrial setting - opening soon - and the Lab is a 'sponsor'). He was playing a powertool, processed by the Rabbit. In short, it's a Delay/Reverb FX unit in 8 HP, and it has some nice algorithms that will blow a fresh hurricane through your rack - or add a beautiful glow to your ambient fluffy bunny patch.

This video features imaginary quotes by A.I. generated US presidents. They are not real. They're just proof we're going down the rabbit hole very fast. I can't show you what the Matrix is. You'll have to see it for yourself."

Hydrasynth Deluxe Vintage & Analog Sounds

video upload by Synth Universe

"The ASM Hydrasynth Deluxe is a powerhouse synth capable of creating fat, warm and rich vintage sounds. Here is a selection of dual-layer patches from the Synth Universe Hydrasynth Deluxe Sound Banks Volumes 1 & 2. Each sound is inspired by the character of vintage analog and string synthesizers. See below for more information and the link to purchase these sounds.

The pads, strings, brasses, poly synths, sines, basses and leads emerging from the Hydrasynth can rival those of great synths from the past, which has been unexpected! With two sound engines, the Hydrasynth Deluxe can give you more richness and depth in a basic sound by doubling it and making adjustments to each layer. You can create powerful and organic sounds with multiple oscillators working together in unpredictable ways, using the oscillator mutants, filters and modulations.

All the sounds in this video are available to purchase as part of the Synth Universe Hydrasynth Deluxe Sound Banks Volumes 1 & 2.

GForce / Oberheim SEM - Sound Bank '79

video upload by Polydata

"One of the most beloved, unique and musical sounding synthesizers has been perfectly recreated by GForce and endorsed by Oberheim. A classic design with a wonderful sound that just works. This plug-in is a tool that is simple, yet can fit so well in a wide array of productions.

A bank 30 patches for instant inspiration and to help you get working quickly. The goal was to highlight the raw analog tone and musicality of the SEM design, primarily working within the constraints of the original Oberheim module. This is one of my favorite mono plug-ins, and a perfect way to get that sound without spending thousands of dollars.


After payment, you will receive the file in your email within 24 hours. Recorded with no external processing - what you hear is all from the plug-in.
