Get the Dillon Bastan Swarmalators T & Cellular Degradation Max for Live Devices for free!

Dillon Bastan Swarmalators T and Cellular DegradationWe stumbled upon two excellent freebies for Ableton Live Suite or Live with Max for Live users. You can now download two new Max for Live Devices – Swarmalators T and Cellular Degradation – for free! Both are made by Max developer Dillon Bastan.

Max for Live developer Dillon Bastan contributed six very interesting effects and instruments for sound designers to the recently released Ableton Live 11 package. He has now expanded his portfolio with a new synthesizer and effect that you can download from his site for free. Pretty cool!

Swarmalators T and Cellular Degradation

Swarmalators T is a synthesizer based on a “Swarmalators” model. This type of sound generation is quite complex (more information can be found here). It employs synchronised dynamic movement of a ‘swarm’ of oscillators which generates a very lively sound, with lots of dynamics. A very useful tool if you’re into sound design. The graphic design is also very nice.

Cellular Degradation, as the name suggests,¬†is an audio degrader with a life of its own. The idea behind it is predictably complex – it’s about the interplay of cellular automation and a polyphonic tone generator, creating interesting noises for experimental musicians. Bastan explains the procedure very clearly in one of the videos below.

Prices and dates

You can download the Swarmalators T and Cellular Degradation from the developer’s Gumroad page in the link below. Note that the price is determined by you, so if you choose to, you can download them for free. But if you decide to support the developer, it would mean he can invest more of his time in further creations. The Max for Live Devices require an installed Ableton Live version 10 (or higher) and Max for Live (which is included in Ableton Live Suite).

Algoritm FM Synthesizer: 9 operators of FM for Reason

Reason Algoritm FMReason brings the fun to FM Synthesis with the colourful Algoritm FM and plays with 9 operators, filters and completely free routing.

Algoritm FM

The idea was to make Algoritm FM (apparently not a typo) as accessible and easy-to-use as possible which is no mean feat with FM synthesis. The first thing they did was to remove the operator algorithms and leave the routing completely open and free. Once that freedom was achieved Algoritm FM became quite unique and exciting – or so they say.

What we have are 9 operator slots that can be connected together however you wish. You’d expect these slots to be filled with classic FM oscillators but they can also house wavetable oscillators, filters and shapers. There are 3 LFOs and a couple of “Curves” which are a bit like envelopes only more complex.

While it’s completely capable of coming up with regular FM sounds it’s also free from those assumptions and can hybrid itself into all sorts of tones and possibilities. It has a randomisation engine to get things moving, a unison mode and some reverb and delay effects.

Algoritm FM looks pretty fabulous to me. I like the routing panel and how easy the very visual interface makes everything. While it’s a great place for exploration FM often needs a bit of instruction regardless of how simple the interface is. Reason has provided a decent tutorial video where their man Ryan takes us through what we need to know – good stuff.

Algoritm FM is available now as a Rack Extension for £99 or free as part of the Reason+ subscription.

PH Modular: 1U back panel extensions for Behringer synths mounted in Eurorack

Many Behringer synths are perfect for dropping into a Eurorack case but then you lose access to the back panel features. PH Modular has a solution.

Extensions

It’s a really neat idea to bring those back panel functions back into use when the synth is mounted in a Eurorack case. PH Modular has one sorted out for the Neutron semi-modular synthesizer. It features a power socket with on/off switch, a USB connection, MIDI channel select and MIDI Thru, a headphone output with volume control, a main output and an auxiliary input. It all fits into a nice looking 1U panel that can be dropped into a 1U Eurorack row.

The Extension kit consists of the 1U Intellijel format Eurorack 42HP front panel, a TRS MIDI adapter, a TRS Jack, a spare MIDI Din socket in case you want to put it back in the original case and a bunch of screws and bits. The beauty of this kit is that it uses the existing back panel PCB and repurposes it for 1U Eurorack. To make this fit properly you’ll need to desolder and remove the existing MIDI Din socket and replace it with the supplied TRS one. That’s the trickiest bit and full instructions are included.

PH Modular Extension for Neutron

PH Modular Extension for Neutron

Be aware that modifying a products PCB will invalidate the warranty.

The whole kit costs just ‚ā¨35 plus shipping.

Christian Foucaud of PH Modular says that they are planning to offer a similar kit for the Model D, K-2, CAT, WASP and Pro-1.

It’s a really helpful little kit and keeps the versatility of a standalone instrument even though it might be used differently within a Eurorack environment.

Bedroom Producers Blog HY-ESGHY-ESG is an awesome new free plug-in for the popular “sequenced gate” or “trance gate” effect. You can shape the gating effect using an ADSR envelope.
