About Karanyi Sounds

Karanyi Sounds is a sample developer company that was founded by award-winning composer, music producer Dani Karanyi in 2018. Over the last 17 years, Dani produced electronic music albums as well as film, animation, video game scores, and TV advertisements. As a pianist, he was always passionate about exploring how to bring life to the digital world of music production and seeking new techniques of sound manipulation. Teamed up with Los Angeles-based composers and other sound designers around Europe, he started to sample his favorite synthesizers and release them as Kontakt instruments with a simple-to-use, intuitive interface. Karanyi Sounds keep developing new inspiring instruments and expanding our repertoire to other sound sources too. Personally, I find the aesthetics mind-blowing outstanding pleasing.

Karanyi Sounds is crafting inspiring, high-quality sample collections in Kontakt format, focusing on film and video game scoring. Their goal is to create sonically rich, detailed and characteristic instruments like (or sometimes unlike than) the original sound sources. The company carefully select these sound sources while they also set up custom analog recording paths and rare combinations of effect chains to create unique, playable instruments. Unconventional recording techniques and sound design are as important parts of the modern music production as melodies and orchestration – so Karanyi Sounds is focusing on moods and characters as well as the sound sources themselves.

CL-Projects joined Triple Spiral Audio

Frank Dierickx from CL-Projects joined Triple Spiral Audio with a beautiful collection of products. Frank created  2 Omnisphere soundsets, 13 Kontakt libraries, and 3 soundbanks for the Roland D50 and Juno Alpha hardware synths.

CL-Projects is Frank Dierickx, a hobby musician & self-made sound designer. CL-Projects ​saw the light in 2012 with the idea to make patches for hardware and software synthesizers and later on to create sound libraries for the Native Instruments Kontakt sampler. He became interested in sampling because he wanted to use non-synth sounds like realistic choirs in his compositions. Kontakt was ideal for this purpose. He got interested in creating libraries himself, mainly libraries devoted to synthesizer sounds and his experience in programming synthesizers came in handy for creating these Kontakt libraries.

Because Frank’s first libraries (Electronic Expanse and the Pad Factory Series) were well received by friends, he decided to release his libraries to the public for a very economical price. He also creates patch banks for software and hardware synthesizers.

These CL-Projects soundsets, libraries, and soundbanks take you on a fantastic analog sound journey inspired by Jean Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, and many others.

Roland Updates the Range of BCB Pedalboards

Roland Updates the Range of BCB Pedalboards

Roland updated their flagship BCB pedalboard range and added a new model—the premium travel-friendly BCB-1000. The BCB-90X and BCB-30X offer more flexibility for modern pedal layouts and the BCB-1000 is a robust and practical solution for traveling with your pedals.

The world of effects pedals really started to expand in the early 1970s, launching a new era of creative exploration for guitarists. Soon, top touring players and session musicians began commissioning elaborate custom-built rigs to house their effects, and the concept of the modern pedalboard was born. But for the average player, an affordable, off-the-shelf option was virtually non-existent for many years.

That all changed in 1982 when BOSS introduced the BCB-6, a user-configurable pedalboard for the masses. This breakthrough product featured an innovative molded design that was both the board and carrying case, and allowed guitarists to incorporate six compact pedals—plus the new BOSS TU-12 tuner, another milestone product—in an integrated, ready-to-play package.

Adopted by countless players in the decades since BCB pedalboards have continued to evolve to meet their changing needs. The latest BCB lineup is our most versatile and diverse to date, providing trusted BOSS solutions for modern pedal setups and musicians on the move.
