In ableton, free, sample on November 11, 2012 at 13:38

Waveshaper about the sample pack for Ableton Live:

“Modulok is a percussive sample pack made using two semi-modular analogue synths, a couple of vintage synthesizers and a bunch of analogue FX all linked together in a modular fashion.

Crafted by hand with love and care, the goal is to bring out the character of the analogue sound, both smooth and wild, futuristic and retro, raw and advanced, in a big & versatile drum-sample pack, suitable for all kind of music. Analogue but not cliché, this pack knows no boundaries.”

Tech spec: Features more than 380 samples for a total size of 153MB, 364 one-shot samples, gathered in 4 categories: kicks, snares & lasers, hats & cymbs, percussions & sfx (each category being also sub-divided in 2 sub-categories for a quicker browsing); 23 loops of analogue drones and textures for your audio production; 24bit, 48Khz stereo WAV files; This pack is released for free, as Waveshaper’s contribution to KVR DC2012.

Modulok is one of the entries of the KVR Developer Challenge 2012 and my favorite so far, Modulok is a sample pack by WaveShaper, made with a couple of vintage synths, two semi-modular synths and some analog effects. It features more than 360 unique samples and are really well organized into categories and subcategories, and then labeled to give you an idea of the sample. Sample quality is 44Khz 24 bit stereo WAV.
If you don’t know what a sample pack is, is a collection of sound files recorded and/or sythesized, and put together so you can integrate it into a song, beat, video or anything you want.

The highlight in this library is that is really original, extremely easy to use and the sounds are REALLY useful, its not one of those packs full of crap-samples.

Psychology of Music detail

“There’s more to why we like music than just a catchy beat or an easy karaoke tune. Dozens of receptors in or brain respond to differen musical aspects like tone, rhythm and lyrics, determining the qualitites we personally like and dislike. Don’t let music just go in one ear and out the other – learn how to interpret your brain’s response to music, the benifts of listening to it and the importance of music education.”

The following infographic is made by the department for music education of the university of florida.
