Cool things and beta-testing projects are happening in and around the ODD studio. With the first projects released, it’s safe to talk about them. Firstly, the website got a do-over and runs much leaner now. Secondly, new and interesting software companies are added to the portfolio. And last but not least, besides beta-testing and sound design, I’m working on full track productions again.Read More »Beta-testing projects and releases
Anyone having a Maschine or Push2 knows how much of your patience is tested when you want to use these devices inside other DAW’s. Honestly, I just have given up on using the Maschine as a controller for anything else besides the Maschine VST or standalone version. For the Ableton Push2 however, I did not want to do without it in my other DAW’s. The scales included in Push2 are such a time-saver and effective creative tool! There simply had to be a way to keep utilizing these inside other DAW’s. I found an easy way that removes jumping through flaming hoops! It’s a nifty little utility called: Shove for Ableton Push2.Read More »Push2 inside Cubase with Shove for Ableton Push2
We all witnessed what happens when hardcore legends team up with an innovative software producer. It brought us RAW, a synth dedicated to the harder styles of dance music. Well, Rob Papen, DJ Promo and DJ Free-K did it again, resulting in monster synth: RAW-Kick. It’s a kickdrum synth with features like we never seen or heard before. It’s so RAW that most factory preset banks had to come with a warning message. So let’s see what this beast can do unleashed.Read More »RAW-Kick by Rob Papen
In real life when a deal is too good to be true, it usually is. In Audio- & VST land that mostly is proven differently! Just a few weeks back Propellerhead and Loopmasters teamed up. Reason owners could grab a great selection of the most popular loops and samples from the Loopmasters site (after registration). Since I already had an account for both websites I jumped on the deal to get the free bundle. At that time I did not install Loopcloud , didn’t pay much attention since I had a ton of other stuff going on.Read More »Loopcloud by Loopmasters, my first impression.
FREE Glitch soundpack
DigiD_N0isE is a soundpack dating back to 2013 and inspired by the wave of DDoS attacks that happened that year. It contains sounds made mostly with Native Instruments Reaktor. The samples are put through various effect-chains. Some of the sounds are taken from field-recordings. Heavily processed and furthermore sculpted in Alchemy and Reaktor.
For the last few weeks I have been beta-testing and doing sound design for Rob Papen’s Predator 2 update. This resulted in a brand new Oddiction soundbank with 128 new sounds. From bread & butter synth-sounds to oddly ‘wild’ patches, as Rob called them. In this version you find some great new features, with the new modulation destinations my absolute favorite.
Last Friday I bought a Zoom H4n Pro with a bunch of accessories, because I want to step up my sound design and make some truly unique sounds. To have a practice run on a hot Summer’s day I decided to sample a bunch of beer bottles and cans (and have a few along the way). I processed to sounds in my freshly upgraded Wavelab Elements and since I’m still learning my new Maschine Mk3; I decided to do a Maschine kit also to include in the same pack. That is in a nutshell how beerOclock was created.Read More »beerOclock, FREE samplepack and Maschine Mk3 kit
2018 is split through the middle by now and I have been working on various new things the past six months. Was part again of a new Rob Papen product, called Go2; did beta-testing on both the VST as the RE (Rack Extension). In both versions my soundbank is included with the factory library, as expected a lot of complex sounds, dark pads and other OddIlicious weirdness! Read More »New DAW, new artist friends, new gear
This week the Propellerhead Software Reason 10.1 (free) update came out, adding some cool stuff to the already amazing Europa Rack Extension and they also added a new player: the Drum sequencer. Since I needed a break from each and everything, I have spend this Sunday in the Studio and been playing around with both items. Probably done some stuff with the Drum sequencer that I shouldn’t have 😜. There are a total of 16 patches and combinators in the download link below.

oddiction.net is back up and this is the first update in well over 2 years. The website has been migrated to a hopefully, more stable hosting. The last hosting had a whole lot of downtime because it was under constant DDOS attacks or server errors. With the moving and Winter cleaning, the oddiction.net website also got a new, faster loading and cleaner look.Read More »Back again, new hosting, new site look
