ReFX Vanguard Professional Skin by THEGIANTS ReFX Vanguard Professional Skin by THEGIANTS
Soft / VST Instruments 27-10-2015
Skin was inspired by Apple products, Native Instruments Maschine, Studio Modules and some Luxury Car Navigators.

I call it Professional basted on the design, so Vanguard Pro! (unofficially tho still version 1.0+)
The direct of the look was going for a possible vanguard 2.0 design. kept it Simple, Dope, Swag, Fresh, Modern, Clean & Unique. Don't think you can compare any another vanguard skin to this one!

I know vanguard is a old plugin, you might have it in your library collecting dust but there are a lot potential and used in many resent hiphop/r&b music thats hitting the radio and charts. 
I know that for a fact! so give vanguard another chance dig in there, there are also good patches that other companies have produced in some kits out there (dope presets). 
I hope with this design, Vanguard can motivate you to its usage again.

This is a free release, Share & Enjoy!

Soniccouture Samulnori Percussion EXS24 KONTAKT-MAGNETRiXX Soniccouture Samulnori Percussion EXS24 KONTAKT-MAGNETRiXX

Samulnori is a type of Korean percussion music that has been gaining popularity over the last few decades, both in Korea and abroad. The term "samulnori” ( ) can be broken into two parts - "samul” meaning "four things”, and "nori” meaning "to play”.

The Samulnori ensemble generally consists of four main instruments : Puk, Janngu, Jing and K'Kwaenggwari. In a minimal ensemble there will be just one of each, but you will also sometimes see larger groups with four or more of each instrument. However, even in these larger groups, the role of each instrument is the same. Each one represents an element of nature, the Jing being the wind, the Janggu the rain, the Puk the clouds, and the K’kwaenggwari the lightning.

Samulnori has it’s roots in farmer’s music (nong-ak), and includes not only music but dancing to celebrate harvest times. The music also stems from the shamanistic tradition of utdari pungmul, which is performed on these same instruments together with singing and wind instruments. In it’s modern incarnation, samulnori relies solely on the four instruments below, either in quartet or larger ensemble.

PUK
Also known as 'Buk', this is a low a low pitched barrel drum, played with a single wooden mallet. It is about 30 cm in diameter, and made from a piece of hollowed out wood with a leather skin tied across each side.It provides the bass pulse of the grou

JING
A gong made of iron. Sometimes hung on a frame, or else held by it’s handle, it’s generally played with a large padded beater. It can also be played with the hands.

JANNGU
An hourglass shaped drum, each side covered with a different kind of leather. One side produces a higher pitched sound and is struck with a thin bamboo reed, the other side is played with a mallet and produces a deeper sound.

K'KWAENGGWARI
A very small hand-held gong held in the left hand and played with a small hard beater. It’s about 25 cm across made primarily of brass. The left hand is also used to damp the gong. This instrument leads the group, signaling transitions in the music.

HUMANISE
The Samulnori Kontakt instruments feature KSP Humanise controls which can be used to add random variations to the timing, velocity, tuning and volume of each hit.

This makes it possible to load up multiple instances of the same instrument playing the same MIDI pattern and introduce the natural differences and organic feel of a human drummer to each one. This makes it very quick to create stunningly lifelike ensemble percussion pieces.

Today we are rolling out updates for almost all of our plugins ... even the free ones like Podolski. These updates are the result of a summer long effort of collecting, prioritising, filtering, implementing and refining a slew of outstanding bugs and feature requests. The end result is a long list of improvements and bug fixes. 

Briefly, the updates are:

UI improvements:

- All plugin UIs now have 10% scaling, from 70% to 200%.
- The ACE UI is now clearer and has new modulation sources.
- Diva UI was also improved for increased clarity.
- The Zebra2 "Unempty Dark Horse" skin is now complete.
- And finally, a number of small graphics issues in various plugins are fixed.

Configuration Menu: Bazille, Zebra2, Hive, Diva, ACE and Podolski now have a configuration menu (look for the cogwheel icon). This menu houses:
- MIDI learn: a visual overlay for assigning MIDI controls to the plugin interface.
- MIDI list table: editable list of assigned MIDI controls.
- Preferences: global settings for controls, appearance and audio.

Host/DAW issues:

- The "Missing UI" in Logic and Studio One is fixed.
- A number of small issues were fixed in Logic X, Studio One, Cubase, Reaper, Digital Performer, ProTools, Maschine and Kore.

Everything else: These updates include a heap of general improvements: fixed hanging and dropped notes, improved MIDI timing, new FX parameters and much more.
