It’s no exaggeration the most influential British producer of his generation. Nor is it hyperbole to also call him the most successful and in-demand, too. His recent production roll-call reads like a must-have list for right-minded music fans: Adele’s 21, Florence + The Machine’s Ceremonials and Lungs, The Big Pink’s Brief History Of Love and Future This, Foster The People Torches, Cee-Lo Green’s The Lady Killer, Friendly Fires’s Pala, Plan B’s The Defamation Of Strickland Banks, notably the massive, definitive Stay Too Long single…
The world’s first MIDI guitar, the Casio Digital Guitar – hacked and circuit bent by PMG – can now be part of your studio. Dig into the sound bank of the DG series and crank up your session with one of the stranger musical inventions of the ‘80s. Music tech of the ’80s runs the gamut from revolutionary digital synthesis to more experimental endeavors. The Casio Digital Guitar falls into the latter category and, although an oddball of music inventions we thought it cool and unique enough to create a sound pack. The Casio Digital Guitar is a stringed guitar which translates the performance to the onboard computer and plays back the selected sound. Puremagnetik sampled all of the on-board sounds and also took the Digital Guitar’s resources a step further by circuit-bending the device for more glitch-tastic programs. Puremagnetik created some feedback loops, tweaked with the clock and injected voltage in places it shouldn’t be!
Captured entirely from an original General Instruments AY-3-8910 three-voice programmable sound generator, PM-8910 is packed full of goodies for old-school gaming and chip sound enthusiasts. The AY-3-8910 and its variants became popular chips in many arcade games, and were used on, among others, the Intellivision and Vectrex video game consoles, Amstrad CPC, Oric 1, Colour Genie, Elektor TV Games Computer and Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128/+2/+3 home computers as well as the Mockingboard and Cricket sound cards for the Apple II family. PM-8910 is the perfect companion and addition to PMG constantly growing arsenal of retro computer sounds and has been programmed as an Ableton Live Pack, Kontakt Instrument and Logic Library.
Each kick has been labelled by Key to make sure you get exactly what you are looking for without having to guess the key, and even if your song it’s not in the same key as the sample you like, the Key Label makes it easier to know exactly how many semitones you have to transpose up or down.
Mark Two Berlin is a distinctively unique and versatile instrument recorded from a restored Fender Rhodes MKII. It was salvaged from a Berlin collector and brought back to life after many months of restoration. The Mark Two Berlin had 21 pickups completely replaced with new ones, a few damper replacements and multiple tine adjustments and tunings. It was routed direct into a Zen modded Golden Age Pre 73 and recorded chromatically with 3 velocity layers per key. The Ableton Live Pack, Logic and Kontakt versions all come with 60 looped clips. The Live version includes MIDI clips while the Logic and Kontakt instruments contain Apple Loops.
Mark One Brooklyn is collection 24-bit instruments and loops sampled from the Rhodes Mark One. It has been programmed as an Ableton Live Pack, Kontakt Instrument and Logic library. Sampled more for its character and less for its perfection, the Mark One Brooklyn brings a flavor all its own to the studio or stage. This release also includes over 60 audio loops played by professional jazz, funk and R&B keyboardists. The Ableton Live version of Mark One Brooklyn also includes 5 custom built amp and speaker emulations in Ableton Rack format.
