Tweak's Picks for Cool Constructions

 Propellerheads Reason (Macintosh and Windows)
Software synths have been around for almost as long as the personal computer. But somehow, they've never really made the grade. Too demanding on computer resources. Too complex. Too limited. Indifferent sounding. Unplayable. Or simply not cool enough. But now, the first software synth to equal and surpass the power, glory, and attitude of dedicated hardware has arrived. In fact, it's a lot more than just a synth. It's a complete music system. The Age of Reason is finally here
.Tweak's Pick!

Emagic EXS24 (Macintosh and Windows)

 Tweak writes: I have it and it is wonderful. Great filters and you can stick it in your Logic audio mixer strip and go to town with plugins. There is not a hardware sampler out there that can deliver this sound of stacked plugins and samples.  With Logic 4.8 (just released as a free upgrade) you can import SoundFonts!  Get the price!

Propellerheads Rebirth (Macintosh and Windows)
ReBirth is the first true virtual analogue synthesizer for the 303, 808 and 909 sound. It is a self contained techno-trance-dance-acid-house studio for  Mac or PC. Physical modeling was used to recreate the exact sound and feel of the original hardware devices. On screen you will find the same device surfaces which operate exactly the same way as the original instruments plus complete automation of all knobs and sliders recordable from external MIDI controllers. Added realtime effects include distortion, delay and and a pattern triggered overall filter . ReBirth saves Patterns and Songs, synchronizes to the outside world via Midi Clock and supports OMS. Also, check out the website for the killer ReBirth Mods! Tweak Reports: Its cool.  It's got tons of classic sounds.  Its totally tweakable.  It's cheap! But it doesn't sound cheap,  In fact, there's plenty of dudes making BIG BUCKS with this program! If you are at all serious about retro, this is a must have. Tweak has it and loves it.  Integrates well with Cubase and Logic. It Gets the TweakHeadz Lab Bang for the Buck award.  Learn more... GET the super low PRICE

 EVP88 Vintage Virtual Piano. Cool tunes await the Piano Man

Steinberg Recycle (Macintosh and Windows). GET PRICE
ReCycle! is the most powerful tool for working with sampled grooves. It analyzes a waveform and breaks each sound into a slice isolating individual sounds. The 'slices' are then transmitted to a sampler as a key map and as a standard MIDI file.

Tweak Reports:  If you are serious about constructing your OWN loops its a must have.  If you are on VST, you can export any loop to VST broken down and sliced so you can freely adjust tempos, even requantize it as if they were midi notes.  It will also export to a SoundFont file.  Emu  and Akai SampleHeads will love it too!


Download these.  Use them.  They are sounds which will give you an industrial feel.  When you want more, buy my CD Roms!  You will not regret it!  No one gives you as many quality sounds, meticulously programmed for the dollar as Tweakheadz!  Sure they may have better glitzy covers and graphics, but in terms of sound, you will agree, The Tweakmeister Rules!
