Introducing Soul School 2

Soul School 2

When we released the Soul School ReFill in 2009, the concept was simple: Record old school grooves authentically and provide producers and musicians access to these unique loops with unprecedented flexibility, not possible through vinyl sampling alone. Now we are proud to introduce Soul School 2.

Soul School 2 builds on the original with a collection of new songs, grooves, loops, and sampled instruments. New in Soul School 2 is the addition of streamlined Octorex patches with collections of loop variations and Kong Kits containing Rex loop pads that make sample-based guitar, horn, bass, or drum performance a creative treasure chest. What's best, if you already own the first Soul School, you qualify for special discount pricing for Soul School 2. Don't have either and want both? We've got you covered with a bundle deal too!

The Uhbik Series Expands

U-he Uhbiks

This past month, U-he expanded their Rack Extension library with the new Uhbik-F and Uhbik-Q. The Uhbik-F is U-he's flanger which is super-charged to give you nearly every conceivable flange and modulation effect... and a few inconceivable ones too. The Uhbik-Q is U-he's take on EQ. Uhbik-Q combines freely tunable frequency bands (4-pole filters, not the usual 2-pole!) with presets for other options. Q-factors automatically adjust to gain, an optional 'mid' bell curve filter adjusts to the two main bands… judging by the simple GUI, you would never guess just how much this EQ can do!

More Reason Sound Design Videos

In an effort to quench the unquenchable, your thirst for knowledge, our product specialists have cooked up few new tips videos for you. These run the gambit from sound design, to advanced effects, and even remix strategies.

This month newcomer Max Rehbein answers the age old question: How to make an Aggressive Dubstep Bass. It's a lot easier than you might imagine and boy does it sound aggressive!

James Bernard takes a more helicopter view of how to approach remixing when you've got stems from an artist. As remix contests and promotions become more common, artists are providing the stems to their music more and more.

Mattias rounds out the collection this month with a look at Advanced Polar Techniques. Since Polar and do basic pitch shifting but also mind-bending granular effects, Mattias delves into the latter and bends minds in the prices..
