Let's hear it for an instinctively musical, highly original and vexingly productive artist: our good friend Legowelt. This week, he rummaged through piles and piles of 3 1/2-inch disks to find some of the most rare, crunchy and distinctive samples he's been using throughout his 20+ year career.

Synchrotron Sound Pack for Analog Keys/Four
Nicholas Lem has created 128 sounds for the Analog Keys/Four. The Synchrotron Sound pack consists of 100% royalty free sounds, ranging from modularesque leads to staticky drums. Like the massively ambitious plasma experiment that lends the pack its name, these sounds inspire further tweakage and experimenation of your own!
Welcome to a selection of sounds of a very promising nature. They take you to a long lost day and age, reminiscent of the early age of electricity. Before the strange invisible fluid called electricity had been fully tamed and defined, it was a wholly benign force. Anyone with a bit of curiosity could experiment and be awed by its seemingly limitless possibilities. Today, electricity is everywhere. It has powered our rise to modernity. But it is also an intimidating power, in theory and practice. It is to be feared, respected and not to be messed with. Not so in the sounds found here. They take you back to the time when electricity was a fun, unfettered mold that you could shape according to your own desire. Tap it from the earth or from the sky. Harness the power of the sun. Make it sing.
Download the pack, watch the promo and listen to sound examples here.

Klute does drum & bass like no other. The ragamuffin irreverence and rugged individualism that this guy exudes is just not possible to fix in writing. It has to be heard and experienced. Constantly disregarding artistic and musical conventions, always with a big smile on his face. Read on. This is his story of skateboards, samplers and sordid breaking of legs.

Junkyard Sound pack for Analog Rytm
When tools and gadgets finally retire, after a long and productive life of chore and utility, a few lucky ones may enjoy a second spell of virtue as musical instruments. The classic one-piece Estwing hammer, for instance, was originally designed to produce a pitch perfect tone when struck straight-on-the-nail. Handle worn off, face dented and shaft rusted, it would still serve its sonic purpose. A good sound can never die. What is trash to the eye may be a treat to the ear. Enjoy.
The Junkyard Sound Pack contains a selection of samples created by Loopmasters, optimized for use on the Analog Rytm. The bundle also includes a custom Analog Rytm project featuring patterns, kits and live-friendly scene and performance macros. The samples (but not the patterns, kits and macros) may also be used on the Octatrack and the Machinedrum UW.
