Lofi-12 XT - How to Resample While Adding External FX

video upload by ChrisLody

"More information about the Lofi-12 XT:

Full Disclosure: I occasionally take on freelance work at Sonicware on an hourly rate producing synth & sample sound design, beta testing, checking English text, video manuals etc. This video wasn't paid for directly but as a result of my work with Sonicware it is marked as Paid Promotion

*Note: I probably should have pointed out that I have the Left and Right inputs selected as the input from the Sampling menu, that's pretty important* 😅

This is an old school analogue resampling technique you can use on the Lofi-12 to add external effects to your audio. Resampling can also be done digitally if you'd like to just record internal samples without adding effects by changing the source selection to one of the tracks or the master output from the Sampling menu. You can also adapt the method in the video and leave the monitoring switched off if you don't need to hear the results in real-time"

Sonicware LIVEN Texture Lab - "Cinematica" 40 Presets

video upload by LFOstore

"We are proudly presenting wrolds first soundset for Japanese hit - Texture Lab!


This very affordable sampler/synthesizer/fx processor having wide range of possibilities & very inspirative flow imidietly became a pearl for synth enthusiasts.

We made 40 organic presets & sequences with patchlist & full instructions for loading.

Due its midi core techonlogy - uploading patterns & samples are veeeeery slow.
In fact - it is transmitting wav format into sysex which is like a magic!

So be patient with this instrument & you will be rewarded with its trully organic & magical sound!

"Cinematica" soundset contains full set of samples (32) - factory ones are not rewrited - they are there.
Also factory patterns are also there.

We made great sampleset recorded from vintage FM synths from our collection.

Massive Strings
Endless Organic Pads
Granular Poly's
Keys & Plucks
Sequences & Arps
Textures & Drones

All in cinematic spirit in mind.

By Nick Klimenko aka Chronos, a creator of “Organica” for Waldorf Blofeld & “WS Universe” for Korg Wavestation & Anton Sacral Reason author of series of presets for Korg Wavestate and all the synths from the Behringer.

Fire up your Texture Lab synthesizer & explore new creative generative patterns with our soundset.

Enjoy and may music be with you!"

XFM Analog Waveform Pack - 50 Free Waveform Presets

video upload by ChrisLody

Download the free waveform pack from here:

"I've been using the XFM in this Virtual Analog mode for quite a while but I've only recently thought of a good way of using a naming system that will fit into the X.X.X.X format available on the Livens that shows a decent amount of information about what the presets contain. It's a bit harder to read than I was originally hoping but it does contain all relevant information to show how all the analog style oscillators are setup across the different operators."

video upload by Woody Piano Shack

"All the sounds used to make every SEGA MEGADRIVE / SEGA GENESIS game ever made, and all for free! I'll show you how to download all the classic FM sounds and samples for the games console that used the legendary YAMAHA YM2612 4-operator sound chip (also used in arcade cabinets such as Outrun, Paperboy).

We'll also explore using FM8 on NATIVE INSTRUMENTS MASCHINE+ for a standalone groovebox device to rival the Sonicware LIVEN MEGA Synthesis.

A Handful of Patterns on the Sonicware Liven Mega Synthesis

video upload by Robbeken

"When I was a kid my family got a Sega Genesis (Megadrive) at Christmas.

I’ve been cursed by a love for FM synths since…

I’m so dang nostalgic for the sounds and music of that era that when this little groovebox was announced I ordered right away!

Liven Mega Synthesis…
M-Sega S-Genesis… ?

I got the flu right when it arrived so I hadn’t spent as much time with it as I planned.
I got better!

It’s battery powered so I take it with me sometimes to play on work lunch breaks, or chilling on the sofa with family.

Here are a handful of patterns I’ve been playing on it. You may recognize couple from games!

Not only do I love the gritty crunchy sounds of this thing, I like how the sequencer works; especially its stutter and random modes. They’re great for fills on drums and grooves on bass.


For great justice."
