Wow! This plugin has opened up so many creative possibilities how can you not have it? British artist and musical prankster Tim Exile (designer of NI plugin THE FINGER) has returned with another fun and powerful synth/FX hybrid- THE MOUTH! THE MOUTH is designed to generate melodies and harmonies out of whatever audio material you feed it.
The best part is that it is very affordable and works with NI's Free REAKTOR 5 PLAYER another great plugin that comes with 200 sounds.
You read that right. Former President George H.W. Bush said in an upcoming NBC interview that the worst moment in his presidency was being referred to as a racist by entertainer Kanye West. Although Kanye's actual words were "George Bush doesn't like Black people", which were expressed during a telethon for Hurricane Katrina relief, George Bush felt that it meant the same as being called a racist. "I didn't appreciate it then. I don't appreciate it now. It's one thing to say, "I don't appreciate the way he's handled his business." It's another thing to say, "This man's a racist." I resent it, it's not true, and it was one of the most disgusting moments in my Presidency."
I am sure many of us would agree that his administration's handling of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the Iraq war and 9/11 were more disgusting than some words that felt accurate during a catastrophic time in our country's history.

What is George Duke Soul Treasures?
It’s like having access to a bunch of George Duke studio sessions, royalty free…to use however you wish! No seriously, it’s like they took George Duke…along with his personal engineer Erik Zobler, locked them in the studio, and told them to play some goodness if they ever wanted to smell the fresh air again.
Okay…maybe they weren’t that ruthless, but you know…getting someone of George’s skill to sit down and record a bunch of random loops for other folks to use is quite a feat in itself. It’s over 500 loops, in a customized kontakt player instrument, tempo-synced and ready to slice.
It’s a sampler’s dream!
I wasn’t even worried about how it would sound…it’s freaking George Duke, teamed up with his personal engineer, put into an instrument from NI. That said, it was a lot more diverse than I first expected.
