SampleScience has launched two new plugins – the 808 Bass Revolution and the Sky Piano – and both are retailing at just $30 each.

The 808 Bass Revolution is a collection of 40 “expertly” designed 808 basses, with the Sky Piano described as a “meticulously multi-sampled Grand Piano captured with a high-precision microphone”.

Both plugins are compatible with Windows and macOS, and are available in VST, VST3, and AU formats. Let’s take a closer look at each:

808 Bass Revolution

All 40 of these 808 basses are tailored for a range of genres such as rap, pop, EDM, and trap. SampleScience says they are “perfect” for producers seeking depth and versatility in their music.

There’s also four effects on board: distortion, delay, chorus, and reverb, plus multi-LFO, amplitude range controls for soft saturation, and a highpass/lowpass filter. There’s three voice modes: polyphonic, monophonic, and legato, and a sample pack version of the plugin is also provided.

Check it out below:

Sky Piano

This plugin delivers a “pristine” acoustic piano sound. It has 480 24-bit samples, 16 velocity layers, and similarly to Bass Revolution, there’s also four core effects for distortion, delay, chorus, and reverb. Other features remain the same, such as multi-LFO, amplitude range controls, highpass/lowpass, plus three voice modes.

Take a closer look:

Towards the end of last year, SampleScience released a quirky VHS Noise Generator plugin, designed to add nostalgic crackle, “lo-fi character, and warmth” to any audio source, including synths, drums, vocals and guitars. It offers 26 distinct VHS background noises, each one created using an antiquated VCR and a different tape.
