It was legendary for its fast response times and for the harmonic distortion and distinctly analog flavor it could impart to any signal. There were several different revisions, each with their own take on the same base sound. Digital audio has come a long way toward recreating the sound of the 1176 and these are some of the best 1176 plug-ins available today. Universal Audio 1176 Classic Limiter Collection It doesn’t get any more authentic than this collection of three of the most legendary 1176 designs of all time, meticulously emulated. There are three different variations, including Rev. A., Rev. E., and AE. This means the bundle gives you access to the classic Blackface, Blue Stripe, and LN models. As with all of the best 1176 emulations, every element of the circuitry from the analog units was painstakingly recreated in the digital realm. These include the transistors and harmonic distortion. It has attack times that range from 20ms to 800ms. Each model offers the legendary “All Buttons In” mode as well as the “No Ratio” mode – which adds the pleasing analog distortion without any compression. Also included are presets from renowned mix engineers that help you get in the ballpark of their settings quickly. The only downside is that it requires UA hardware to run, but considering the storied history of the company this might be well worth the investment for you. More information and purchasing Waves Audio CLA-76 This option is a marriage between Waves and one of the most popular mixing engineers of all time – Chris Lord Alge. It is based on…

Sample Science Pianotone 600 The Jen Pianotone 600 was one of the quirkier pianos of the 70s, and Sample Science has revived it in the digital world with this plug-in. It functions in two modes – one with the original reaction and another that provides more touch sensitivity. There are also three voice modes: monophonic, polyphonic, and legato. It has the same controls as other Sample Science plug-ins including controls over the envelope, filtering, and reverb. It’s a small pack of samples at just 10MB in 16-bit, 44.1kHz specifications. The best part? It’s totally free. More information and pricing RDG Audio Frame Drummer This is a unique drum sample set taken from Asian frame drums. They were sampled in two mic positions to provide a proper stereo image. The GUI is unique but is fairly easy to navigate. The pack includes more than 400 samples, and up to seven sounds can be stacked at once. As far as controls go things are fairly robust. These include filtering, attack, release, pan, gain, tuning of the drums, and reverb. All samples are velocity sensitive. It works for Windows and Mac 64-bit and comes in VST3 and AU formats. It’s a unique set of samples available for just $59.99.

United Plugins Quick AG: Perfect acoustic guitar sound in-the-box? https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/08/06/united-plugins-quick-ag-perfect-acoustic-guitar-sound-in-the-box/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=united-plugins-quick-ag-perfect-acoustic-guitar-sound-in-the-box https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/08/06/united-plugins-quick-ag-perfect-acoustic-guitar-sound-in-the-box/#respond Thu, 06 Aug 2020 10:59:11 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=17982 Getting acoustic stringed instruments to sound right when recorded can be difficult, according to the developers of a new plug-in called Quick AG. Choosing mics and positioning, dialing in EQ and compression, setting levels… Quick AG is a plug-in gives you an all-in-one toolkit for mixing acoustic instruments, such as guitar, ukulele, and mandolin. United Plugins – Quick AG At first sight, the plug-in looks quite cluttered. But on closer inspection, the colour-coded interface turns out to be laid out quite logically. So finding your way around the various sections and will probably be quick, unless you are completely new to music production. First in the chain is a variable compressor which emulates FET, Vari-Mu and Clean-style compression. Following is a guitar-optimized EQ with Low-Cut, Body, De-harsh, and Spark knobs – no hunting around for sweet-spot frequencies, then. Next is an “Xtra” processor with Transient, Doubler, and Width controls – adding that welcome bit of presence, weight and wideness to the instrument. Finally, a three-way reverb (Plate, Hall, Room) with Dry/Wet and Length controls helps finish off the sound with ambiance. Laid out like this, the plug-in is approachable by novice producers as well as ones with a bit more experience. Veteran mixers will no doubt have their tried-and-tested signal chains already set up in their DAW, and probably little need for this type of plug-in. But for beginners, there are presets for various instruments to get started with what the developers consider ‘ideal’ settings. All in all, I really like the concept and the detailed, realistic user interface. This plug-in makes a lot of things easy, which is hard to say of most typical studio effects. Adding a bit…

With only two buttons, AI Master promises to handle the complex task of mastering all by itself. Let’s hope that the mastering humanoid knows what he’s doing! Exonic UK AI Master Artificial intelligence is steadily transforming the world of mastering. That’s no coincidence. Mastering is an intricate task that takes people many years (sometimes a lifetime) to, well, master. But at its core, the complex process comes down to analyzing the material and making the appropriate choices, which is something that sufficiently intelligent algorithms and trained neural networks can be quite good at. Over the past few years, several plug-ins have appeared that promise to give us magic mastering powers through the use of artificial intelligence, like the Eventide Elevate Bundle, iZotope Ozone’s Mastering Assistant or unconventional approaches like Zynaptiq Intensity. Many online mastering services rely on AI, as well. But most of these plug-ins and services still let you interact with the algorithms in one way or another or. At the very least, most let you choose from a variety of presets. That’s akin to letting a mastering engineer know what you want. Mastering at the push of a button Exonic UK’s new plug-in AI Master is different. The only thing it lets you do yourself is switch from the ANALYSE to the MASTER mode when it has finished listening to your track. Everything else takes place inside the mysterious web of algorithms, symbolized by the blank stare of a humanoid. The developer says that AI Master optimizes the dynamic range, spectral balance, stereo field and overall level, thereby preparing your tracks for distribution across multiple…

The AKAI MPK mini MK3 features a new keybed, endless rotary knobs and an OLED display. It also comes with a comprehensive software package. AKAI MPK mini MK3 The AKAI MPK mini is one of the most popular backpack-sized USB keyboard controllers. With 25 keys, eight MPC-style pads and assignable knobs, it offers everything you need to control DAWs and software instruments on the go. Today, AKAI Professional has announced the third generation of the MPK mini. While the new MPK mini MK3 retains the same format and same basic layout, it does come with several improvements and new features. The controller keyboard is available in three colors. In addition to the standard red and black MPK mini and the white version with inverted keys, you can now get the keyboard in an all blacked-out color scheme, which is a real eye-catcher. The all-black version of the AKAI MPK mini MK3 is a real eye-catcher For the first time in the MPK mini series, AKAI has added an OLED display to the keyboard controller. The manufacturer says that the display provides visual feedback about things like velocity, CC assignments and DAW mode selection. Pads, knobs and DAW control aside, the MPK mini is still a keyboard. And according to AKAI, the keybed has been completely redesigned. The manufacturer also says the new Gen 2 keyboard delivers a natural and responsive performance for any playing style and virtual instrument. Like the predecessor, the MPK mini MK3 features eight assignable rotary knobs. But they’re now endless encoders, which means that you won’t get any unwanted value jumps when switching between assignments. AKAI’s…

And for a limited time, you can grab this plugin for a very reasonable introductory price. Nembrini Audio MRH810 V2 The new updated MRH810 V2 from Nembrini Audio has been completely re-written from the ground up to give you those classic ’80s JCM 800 tones we all know and love. I spent my formative guitar years wielding a Marshall JCM 800 half stack, and still have a soft spot for those glorious, though often deafening, amplifiers. Nembrini Audio MRH810 V2 Cabinets Galore and more The amp plugin has a clean and a lead channel, and is modelled with four 12AX7 and four EL34 virtual tubes. It includes the company’s new enhanced recording chain emulation, which has six well-selected cabinets, along with a selection of virtual microphones, which you can play around with and set up as on or off axis. This gives you a nice place to to start building your tones with. It also has an Impulse Loader that lets you load up to three 3rd-parties IRs at once. Once loaded, you can adjust the VOLUME, PAN, PHASE, SOLO, and MUTE controls to blend the cabs to your taste. And to tame this beast, there’s a built-in NOISE GATE, as well as a CLEANER circuit with controls for RUMBLING and HARSH. Nembrini Audio allows you to play with microphone and cabinet settings Deal You can grab the plugin for a fantastic introductory price of only $29 until August 17, after which it will go up to its regular…

Today, Steinberg released SpectraLayers 7, the 7th generation of its spectral editing toolkit. It comes in two variants – Pro 7 and Elements 7. Both cover the heavy lifting when it comes to post-production, sound design, mastering and restoration. Steinberg SpectraLayers 7 The biggest addition in version 7 is the introduction of artificial intelligence. The new algorithms allow for functionality such as automatic pattern detection, clip repair, un-mixing tracks to stems, and further downmixing stems to their components. More processes are automated as well, such as click repair, hum removal, and precision spectral de-essing. Other improvements outside the AI scope include better ARA 2 integration, VST3 plug-in hosting, customizable UI luminocity, direct layer rendering, and others. Back to AI-driven functionality, the new Pattern Finder is able to automatically find and select sounds similar to the target sound you selected. A Voice Denoiser recognizes and isolates human voice to help extract dialogue from recordings. The Transform Tool is now able to transform entire selections. As for the unmixing functionality – in addition to extracting different instruments into separate layers, stems can be further un-mixed down into tone, noise, and transient component layers. All in all, Spectralayers 7 is pretty serious business! Steinberg is bringing powerful AI into the spectral editing field and it can only go further from here. I presume version 8 will be on the level of “black magic” when it comes to AI-driven automated processing. Not that SpectraLayers isn’t incredibly advanced as it is.

The best studio monitors under EUR 500 per pair: Our top 7 budget speakers https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/08/01/the-best-studio-monitors-under-eur-500-per-pair-our-top-7-budget-speakers/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=the-best-studio-monitors-under-eur-500-per-pair-our-top-7-budget-speakers https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/08/01/the-best-studio-monitors-under-eur-500-per-pair-our-top-7-budget-speakers/#respond Sat, 01 Aug 2020 10:59:10 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=17908 With affordable audio interfaces and DAWs going free or low-cost, what may be missing from your setup is a pair of decent studio monitors. In this article, we will give you plenty of options for active studio monitors priced below EUR 500 per pair. This way, you can get your audio monitoring sorted without breaking the proverbial bank! The best studio monitors under EUR 500 per pair What a good studio monitor does is help you make the right decisions when recording, mixing, and mastering. As monitors do not color the sound in any tangible ways and offer a honest representation of what your audio really sounds like, the result will comfortably translate across a wide range of audio playback setups – speakers, mobile devices, PA systems, and so on. Making the right choice depends on the limits of your room as well as personal taste. The smaller your studio room, the smaller your monitors should be in order to have their sound unaltered by room modes and reflections. As for personal taste, a choice of shapes and colors is there so that your monitors look and feel right.

Microsoft Surface for Music Production: Surface Book 3 or Surface Go 2? https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/08/01/microsoft-surface-for-music-production-surface-book-3-or-surface-go-2/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=microsoft-surface-for-music-production-surface-book-3-or-surface-go-2 https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/08/01/microsoft-surface-for-music-production-surface-book-3-or-surface-go-2/#respond Sat, 01 Aug 2020 09:59:26 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=17905 So you need a new workhorse for mobile music production and you’ve decided to look beyond from Apple’s Mac OS. While the Surface Book 3 pulses with premium power the Surface Go 2 can offer some surprisingly music-friendly stability at a more affordable price point. Which one would make for an awesome DAW platform? A Surface for every occasion Microsoft’s laptop game has matured into an attractive lineup of touch-screen hybrids. By the time the Surface Book arrived the Surface Pro had already worked out most of the kinks in the combined touch/keyboard/trackpad workflow. I’ve been a Surface Pro user since version 3 (now on version 7) and I can tell you the ease of use and smoothness of transition between input protocols is superb. With any other laptop or MacBook I find I am confined to a chair and pushed into a singular way of working. With a Surface you can circle it, dodge in and out, walk past with a coffee and tap something, sit down and type, stand up and finger flick. Regular laptops drive me nuts. Along with the Surface Pro we now have the Surface Laptop, Surface Pro X, Surface Studio, Surface Hub and the forthcoming Surface Duo and Surface Neo. But the focus of this article are the two latest models which define the top and bottom of the range – the flagship Surface Book 3 and the entry-level Surface Go 2. Surface Book 3 The Surface Book has now reached its third generation and harbours a 10th generation Intel Quad-Core i5 or i7 processor. The 13.5″ or 15″ screen is gorgeous at 3000 x 2000 or 3240 x 2160 resolution respectively running on…

Super VHS, for example, degrades your audio in a nostalgic and vibey way. Magic Switch is a free chorus based on Super VHS, while Comeback Kid is an unorthodox delay. Now, Baby Audio is throwing its hat into parallel processing again. It has followed up its I Heart NY parallel compressor with a new plug-in called Parallel Aggressor – a compressor, filter and saturator! Baby Audio Parallel Aggressor Parallel processing is about processing copies of a track individually, rather than piling up all your effects onto a single track. The heavily processed individual tracks are blended with the dry original to form a cohesive, good-sounding whole. The technique works on all kinds of audio, including drum buses, individual tracks and entire mixes. Parallel Aggressor splits audio in three ways. First comes the dry track. A second copy is run through the Spank compressor, which features four modes – Extra Punch, Extra Smack, Sidechain Filter, and Mono. A third copy goes into the Heat saturator module, which also has four styles – Extra Hot, Tone, HP Filter, LP Filter. At the end, the three tracks are blended between each other using the provided mixer. Each track can be soloed to hear exactly what the processing is doing. Tracks are also automatically gain-matched to the input signal so you can make your decisions easier. As a final touch, Parallel Aggressor has three color schemes for its interface in addition to 25 presets done by name producers that are friends with the developers. All in all, a spankin’ hot release! Price and availability Parallel Aggressor is on sale for USD 29 until…

Used by deadmau5 for his live shows since 2013, OSC/PILOT is now officially available to everyone. OSC/PILOT control system Many electronic live acts rely on software such as Ableton Live or Bitwig Studio. But the user interfaces of most DAWs are still primarily designed for use with a mouse and keyboard in the studio. On stage, the last thing you want to do is fiddle with tiny on-screen buttons and sliders. Off-the-shelf MIDI controllers can provide some relief, but they have a fixed set of controls that cannot change as your needs evolve. What if you could create your very own control surface that offers exactly what you need, and adapts as your requirements change? OSC/PILOT is a customizable control surface for touch screens. The software lets you build your own performance interface for DAWs like Ableton Live and Bitwig Studio. It also works with visual applications, including Resolume and VDMX. According to the developer, OSC/PILOT has been in development since 2013 and has been used and refined since that time by no other than electronic artist deadmau5. OSC/PILOT The drag&drop interface lets you create sliders, buttons, button matrices, rotary knobs and other controllers, and arrange them any way you like. You can then configure them to send MIDI or OSC data to DAWs, other music software and visual applications. The software can also receive OSC data for visual feedback within the UI. OSC/PILOT supports multi-touch displays. It also lets you set up multiple workspaces in one project, so you could have dedicated control pages for different software applications or tracks,…

The new version brings several new features to the plug-in development toolkit, including a VST3 Project Generator and support for the development of plug-ins for ARM-based Macs. Steinberg VST 3.7 SDK While this isn’t the release of VST4, the VST 3.7 SDK does bring several enhancements to the SDK interface. This should make it easier for developers to make the most of the platform and adapt their plug-ins to modern standards and technologies. According to Steinberg, the VST 3.7 SDK allows for new levels of integration between VST 3 hosts and plug-ins. One notable enhancement is the VST 3 Project Generator, which facilitates the entry into the world of VST plug-in development. The Project Generator lets users create a VST plug-in project with just a few clicks, which can then be taken to Xcode or Visual Studio and used as the code skeleton. The new version also brings MIDI 2.0 compatibility to the SDK. Steinberg says that the MIDI 2.0 standard is already supported by VST 3, but the new SDK comes with enhanced documentation on how to implement it. Let’s hope that this means that more plug-ins will support MIDI 2.0 in the near future. In light of Apple’s announcement to transition its entire line-up to ARM processors over the next two years, Steinberg has also added ARM support to the VST 3.7 SDK. The company says that this lets developers create plug-ins that are compatible with the new ‘Apple Silicon’ chips. Finally, the VST SDK documentation has been enhanced and is now accessible online. According to Steinberg, it provides detailed information on how to develop plug-ins, including tutorials…

Pro 3 Wavetables Sequential has released a new web-based Wavetable Generator utility that allows users to convert up to 16 single-cycle waveforms into a Pro 3 compatible wavetable. These can be loaded into any of the 32 user wavetable slots on the synth. These user-wavetables are generated as Sys-Ex files and can be shared and loaded on other Pro 3 synths. All you need to do is update your Pro 3 with the free 1.1 firmware and you’re good to go. “How do you make an awesome-sounding hybrid synth even better? By letting users import their own wavetables,” said Sequential founder Dave Smith: “It opens up a lot of new sonic territory for the Pro 3. We hope users get crazy with it.” Sequential chose to provide the utility as a web app for easy access and broad support. Added Smith: “We wanted to make getting custom waves into the Pro 3 as simple as possible. Ease of use is always a big priority on our synths.” Still no sign of that new synthesizer Dave said he was working on back in April. More information Sequential website. More from Sequential.

Musical Sampling Vibe Drums Bundle This is a sample pack of three drum kits that each bring a distinctive vibe all their own. All three kits were recorded at Hey Hey Studios in Georgia. Penny is a tight kit that conjures the classic sounds of the 60s and 70s. The drums were covered with dampening materials to reduce decay and sustain and were recorded with period-correct vintage microphones and equipment. Ruby is a little more modern sounding and great for rock, and Jolene is a perfect fit for country, pop, and indie. These particular drum samples really breathe while avoiding the “plastic” sound of many similar packs. Works for Windows and Mac Kontakt versions 4 through 6 in VST/3, AU, and AAX formats.

Production Future Bass Shadow Inspired by the sounds of such renowned artists as The Chainsmokers, San Holo, and Flume, Bass Shadow provides audio/midi samples as well as 5 construction kits elements.

There are also synth, bass, one shots, risers with pitch modulation, and percussive elements like acoustic drums, cymbals, and percussion instruments and 25 included effects. All sounds are royalty free, and the pack includes a lot of value at just $19.90.

iConnectivity mioXC: The world’s first MIDI USB-C interface? https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/07/29/iconnectivity-mioxc-the-worlds-first-midi-usb-c-interface/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=iconnectivity-mioxc-the-worlds-first-midi-usb-c-interface https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/07/29/iconnectivity-mioxc-the-worlds-first-midi-usb-c-interface/#respond Wed, 29 Jul 2020 20:59:10 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=17872 USB-C is becoming ubiquitous among computers and smart gadgets. Nowadays, almost all new devices, especially smartphones and tablets, generally have a USB-C connection and hardly anything else. The plugs are reversible and easy to use. Good reasons why the new iConnectivity mioXC not only has a USB-C port, but is also compatible with mobile devices. However, this is nothing new for iConnectivity, as the company made a name for itself with interfaces compatible with both tablets and computers. Previously, this type of interface was rare, and either somewhat compromised, or a bit expensive. The smallest class-compliant MIDI interface? So far, iConnectivity has offered medium and large solutions with several MIDI ports. But what about a very simple MIDI interface that’s absolutely sufficient for a Live session on the go? This means a MIDI in and a MIDI out connection, with no need to install any drivers because the device is Class Compliant. The new iConnectivity mioXC seems to cover this ground pretty well. The company says it’s the world’s first MIDI USB-C interface. MIDI clock delay is supposedly a non-issue, as the interface employs a dedicated 32-bit ARM processor. It can also handle SysEx data, so preset ‘dumps’ and MIDI data transfer (oh, the pain!) are a given. The prospect of simple, hassle-free connection for your MIDI controllers or instruments to whatever computer you have is pretty alluring. More time for creativity! The interface supports all major platforms – macOS, Windows, Android and iOS. There’s also a USB-C to USB-A adapter included. The price is a very fair USD 50.

The plug-in is a compressor and saturator unit, loosely based on BABY Audio’s I Heart NY and Super VHS plug-ins. BABY Audio Parallel Aggressor Parallel processing, as many of you no doubt know, is all about blending multiple copies of an audio track, each processed individually for maximum impact. This way you can achieve a more transparent and natural-sounding result, rather than over-processing a single track to potential doom. What Parallel Aggressor does is split your audio three ways – Dry + 2 processed tracks. The latter are put through the Spank and Heat engines. Spank is a heavy, punchy compressor and Heat is an equally non-subtle saturator. Thus, you can drive the processed copies pretty hard while still maintaining integrity with the original track. Clever! The plug-in’s sleek interface is available in three shades – Light, Gray and Dark. It features control knobs for the Spank and Heat amount, as well as three mix faders to blend the signals at will. Both Spank and Heat have two “styles”. Spank has “Extra Punch” and “Extra Smack” buttons, joined by a side-chain filter and mono summing. Likewise, Heat has “Extra Hot”, “Tone” and HP/LP filters. At the end of the proverbial circuit is an auto gainer which takes care of matching (at least roughly) the original input level. This makes the plug-in’s output consistent and the processing easier to judge. Finally, 25 presets done by named producers are there to get you started. All in all, Parallel Aggressor looks like a potent tool for fattening up tracks and adding bite without going overboard. I like the concept for…

HoRNet MasterTool: a magic mastering formula for instant results? https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/07/29/hornet-mastertool-a-magic-mastering-formula-for-instant-results/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=hornet-mastertool-a-magic-mastering-formula-for-instant-results https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/07/29/hornet-mastertool-a-magic-mastering-formula-for-instant-results/#respond Tue, 28 Jul 2020 23:59:19 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=17861 HoRNet Plugins has released MasterTool, a new all-in-one mastering plug-in designed for quick results. Are MasterTool’s analysis and processing algorithms intelligent enough to make everything sound good, as the developer says? HoRNet Plugins MasterTool It’s no small claim that HoRNet Plugins is making here: MasterTool “makes your tracks sound good without effort”. Haven’t we all at some point wished for a plug-in with a button that magically turns any mediocre mix into a killer track? If HoRNet Plugins is to be believed, its new MasterTool plug-in possesses these supernatural powers. So what is it? The developer describes MasterTool as a “mastering robot”. It’s an all-in-one EQ and dynamics processor that uses intelligent algorithms to analyze the signal and automatically apply the necessary processing. The signal reaches the EQ first, which ‘fixes’ the frequency spectrum using a frequency unmasking algorithm. Next is the dynamics stage, which consists of a clipper and two limiters, all automatic. According to HoRNet Plugins, the clipper and first limiter cut off the peaks and increase the loudness, while the second limiter helps to achieve the desired final level. Controls are minimal. The only two dials let you set the EQ Amount and LUFS Target Level. There’s also a Learn button, of which I’m not 100% sure what it does, and a button that engages a special mode for voiceovers and podcasts. That’s it, everything else happens automatically. It’s hard to imagine that an inexpensive plug-in with a handful of controls will be able to replace the knowledge and skills of an experienced mastering engineer. But at the plug-in’s low price, it could be worth giving it a shot – maybe HoRNet has discovered the magic formula…

Can the UrsaDSP Boost loudness maximizer reveal hidden detail in a mix? https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/07/28/can-the-ursadsp-boost-loudness-maximizer-reveal-hidden-detail-in-a-mix/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=can-the-ursadsp-boost-loudness-maximizer-reveal-hidden-detail-in-a-mix https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/07/28/can-the-ursadsp-boost-loudness-maximizer-reveal-hidden-detail-in-a-mix/#respond Tue, 28 Jul 2020 21:59:18 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=17858 Developer UrsaDSP emerged in 2016 as part of the KVR Developer Challenge, where it introduced its Lagrange delay plug-in. It now has a new release – Boost. Boost is a loudness maximizer with a sleek user interface and some clever algorithm action going behind the scenes. UrsaDSP Boost – loudness maximizer and transient enhancer At a glance, Boost works like most loudness maximizers/limiters. Adjust output ceiling, Attack/Release times, then turn the Boost dial until your audio is louder than liftoff! In practice, there is more than meets the eye. UrsaDSP says its Trajectory technology provides optimal signal detection for the maximum possible gain increase without artifacts or loss of fidelity. Another interesting feature is Upward Maximizing, which is a sort of built-in compressor. With the Focus control, quieter parts of the signal are hit harder than louder parts instead of the loud signals getting peak-limited. UrsaDSP says this results in the ability to reveal quieter sonic detail which could be lost in a dense mix. For example, reverb tails and mechanical noises could be pushed further in volume, if desired. This means Boost can be useful on individual tracks as a loudness and/or transient maximizer, rather than having the master bus as its exclusive domain. Sounds useful, if it works as advertised. Final touches to the plug-in include a Drive control for added harmonic distortion, a Punch setting for extra-slamming transients, and a Max Gain control which limits the range of maximizing to keep the most quiet sounds unaffected. All in all, Boost looks like a competent and modern loudness maximizer with an actual whitepaper backing its technological and functional claims. Nice one! Price and availability Boost is being sold…

Initially launched in 2014, the suite has progressed to a total of four processors driven by the developer’s latest CORE 16 audio engine. Acustica Audio Green4   Green4 contains emulations of four hardware processors made in the USA and designed by none other than George Massenburg, the inventor of parametric equalization. Most likely, Acustica has modeled the GML8200 parametric equalizer and the GML8900 Dynamic Range Controller. These are among the most ‘venerable’ units made in the George Massenburg Labs, which the respected engineer, professor and producer founded in 1982. The plug-ins featured are: Green4 Mono Parametric Equalizer (GREEN4EQMX) 5-band continuous mono parametric EQ with high/low shelf filters, Q amplitude adjustment per band, L/R – M/S controls and preamp emulation. Green4 True-Stereo Parametric Mixing Equalizer (GREEN4EQST) A stereo version of the mono EQ with the addition of metering, Pan, Spread, and phase inversion controls. Green4 Stereo Parametric Mastering Equalizer (GREEN4ZENEQ) A fixed frequency 5-band stereo parametric EQ with L/R/M/S processing, control link, Pan, Spread, Phase Inversion controls; preamp emulation and +6 / -6 dB gain excursion plus Q adjustment for each band. Green4 Stereo Mastering Limiter/Compressor (GREEN4ZENCMP) Stereo limiter/compressor consisting of a pair of compressors (fast & slow) running in parallel for each channel. Controls include Blend, L-R/M-S, Pan, and Spread. Metering is available as well. All in all, another collection of respectable gear emulations done the Acustica way! Price and availability Green4 is on sale for EUR 129, down from the regular EUR 219 for 30 days after its day of announcement. The plug-ins are available in VST, AU, and AAX formats for Windows…

But we must admit that we’re trying to figure out who this processor is aimed at. This premium-price floor-mounted unit has got us scratching our heads, that’s for sure… Legendary Audio – Gold Channel So, what’s The Gold Channel all about then, and why would you want one? Legendary Audio claims that The Gold Channel is the equivalent of a high-end console channel strip, in a portable format. An all-analogue design, you get a microphone pre-amplifier, high-pass filter, parametric EQ, compressor and other processing goodies. Sounds good so far. There are some pretty whacky processing features included, too, along with some pretty bold marketing claims. Take the “Legendary Mic Sound” control, for example, that allegedly makes your SM58 sound just like Buddy Holly’s own Neumann U47! Other processing features include two I.C.E. processors (a proprietary frequency-specific dynamic EQ and variable limiter). I.C.E. stands for In Case of Emergency. As the name suggests, these functions are about controlling problems in your vocal signal, removing unwanted distortion or artefacts at specific frequency bands, killing feedback and so on. There’s a software plug-in version of the feature, too, which costs $89 and is available in a free trial version here. Additionally, there are effects loop circuits that you can switch in and out with a footswitch. You see, Legendary Audio is pitching The Gold Channel as a floor-mounted processor, operated and controlled by vocalists. Which begs a couple of questions… More Money Than Sense? The Legendary Audio Gold Channel costs $4395. Yup, we’ll say…

The device is able to generate MIDI patterns all by itself, providing new MIDI loops for your projects. This is very interesting for drums and percussion, but experimental melody lines from synthesizers are not outside its scope either. RATCHETEER Real-time and in sync with your DAW, the device can trigger ratcheting – a kind of quick repetition (like a drum roll), with five types of time subdivisions (triplets, whole notes, punctured notes, all together or completely free timing). It can also work with a MIDI controller. MIDI velocity is either fixed, controlled by a random generator, or an LFO. This generates even more movement in the pattern itself. The playback speed can also be controlled from the MIDI controler, which is an interesting feature that will certainly appeal to live performers. With the MIDI map function, you can assign all parameters to your controller. Automating is possible for every parameter as well. The device works in front of every Ableton Live instrument, but also before any VSTi. All in all, it’s a nice tool to conjure more variety and groove in your tracks. Price and availability midierror RATCHETEER is available on the manufacturer’s Gumroad website for GBP 17.50. The device requires an installed version of Ableton Live 10 or higher with Max for Live. Presets, installation instructions and a PDF user manual are included in the package.

We’ve seen a string of new releases ranging from vintage emulations to algorithmic reverbs to interesting new spins on the classic effect. Here are the top 8 new reverb plug-ins of this year (well, almost). Abletunes RVRB Abletunes RVRB is meant to be a “modern reverb tool”. It offers 12 algorithms ranging from rooms and studios to halls and plate. With detailed controls for shaping the pre-delay, early reflections, reverb tail and transient response, as well as separate pre and damping EQs, RVRB offers a full tool box for getting the sound just right. There’s also a compressor for the reverb tail, and you can add some movement with the integrated LFO. A highly versatile reverb for any application. Abletunes RVRB is available for Windows and macOS in VST3 and AU formats. The plug-in costs USD 99. Developer’s page Native Instruments Raum Native Instruments’ annual X-mas present was an especially nice one last year. Sadly, Raum is now no longer free, but it deserves a spot on this list no matter what. The plug-in looks pretty straight-forward at first glance, but has a few tricks up its sleeve. There’s a feedback loop in the pre-delay section, which can introduce additional overtones and create interesting sonic textures, and a freeze button for endless, ambient washes of sound. These features make Raum a powerful sound design tool. Native Instruments Raum is available for Windows and macOS in VST, AU and AAX formats. The plug-in costs USD 49.

Last time we heard of him, he modeled a bespoke TASCAM tape recorder and turned it into an effects unit. Now, Giorgio is onto some bona-fide spy technology with the release of DECODER / ENCODER. These apps let you encode and decode audio data in audio files! DECODER / ENCODER What the paid ENCODER app does is mix a second audio track inaudibly into another audio track. The result is an invisible audio message encoded into the file. Volume ratio and the frequency for the hiding place can be determined by the user. Both the hidden and audible audio track are visualized in waveform format. Likewise, the free DECODER app is used to listen to the hidden audio. It separates the hidden track from the audioble track, but it’s not so simple, actually! The user must input the correct frequency to which the hidden audio was encoded into the audible file. Only then the audio will be decyphered. Supported formats Due to technical limitations, only 48 kHz AIFF, WAV and MP3 audio files are supported. Otherwise, the process won’t work. However, hidden audio can be embedded in video files as well – assuming their audio tracks are in the same 48 kHz compressed or uncompressed format. DECODER / ENCODER is a great idea for playing hidden object games or adding a bit of mystery and intrigue to your art. The use of these apps is entirely up to your imagination, which makes them so creative! I can already picture artists encoding audio for their fans to decode as part of a contest or promotion.

Tritik Irid serves up shimmering reverbs and colourful ambiences https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/07/22/tritik-irid-serves-up-shimmering-reverbs-and-colourful-ambiences/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=tritik-irid-serves-up-shimmering-reverbs-and-colourful-ambiences https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/07/22/tritik-irid-serves-up-shimmering-reverbs-and-colourful-ambiences/#respond Wed, 22 Jul 2020 15:59:05 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=17803 Tritik Irid is a new creative reverb plug-in designed for shimmering textures and lush soundscapes. With three tunable reverb voices, it lets you dial in sounds that range from grainy delays to rich harmonic spaces. Will Irid give the popular ValhallaShimmer a run for its money? Tritik Irid Tritik is known for plug-ins with unique ideas and clear, functional GUIs. The free Krush bit crusher is a must-have for any plug-in enthusiast. With Irid, the developer has now ventured into the world of reverb, but like Tritik’s other plug-ins, this one comes with some unique features that will spark your creativity. The underlying concept seems similar to Valhalla Shimmer by ValhallaDSP. Like its competitor, Irid uses a pitch-shifting reverberation algorithm. But it goes a bit further than Valhalla Shimmer by offering three independently tunable reverb voices. According to Tritik, two of these use pitch shifters with a range of -1 octave to +2 octaves, while the third is a frequency shifter ranging from -100 Hz to +2000 Hz. Each voice also has its own output level control and reverse switch. Compared to Valhalla Shimmer, this gives you a good deal more control over what exactly happens in the pitch-shifting section. Irid offers a pre-delay section with tempo sync, and global size, diffusion, width and feedback controls. There’s also modulation for adding some movement to the reverbs. You can further shape the sound using the high cut and low cut filters, and dial in the desired dry/wet balance with the corresponding sliders. Listening to the sound demos, Tritik Irid seems to tick many of the same boxes as Valhalla Shimmer. It’s capable of a huge palette of otherworldly reverbs that almost…

Now Fender’s Custom Shop has issued a one-off Master Built edition of this futuristic-retro design that’s way outside the budget of most players…  Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt Ron Thorn Meteora The Meteora saw the light of day with Fender’s announcement of its Parallel Universe and Alternate Reality models. Its aesthetic combines a retro ’50s-inspired shape with futuristic design cues, and was a big talking point in online guitar communities. Fender Custom Shop Masterbuilt Ron Thorn Meteora Master Built Now Custom Shop master builder Ron Thorn has come up with his own take on the design, the first time that Fender’s Custom Shop has attempted this shape. The Meteora has an ash body with a Closet Classic White Blonde nitro-cellulose finish. The neck is a ’60s C shape quarter sawn maple affair, paired with a nice dark rosewood fingerboard with Pearloid block fret inlays. It has 6105 frets fitted to its fairly modern  9.5” neck radius, so it should play smoothly and choke-free when you bend. The pickups are a TV Jones Classic and Classic Plus wired via a three-way blade selector switch, with a single volume and tone setup. Expect some Gretsch-like tones from his guitar. This is a one-off model available through a store in Canada, but it isn’t exactly cheap. You may want to opt for a regular version instead, at a fraction of the cost of the Master Built version… RRP – USD 10999 More Information Fender Custom Shop Meteora The post Fender Custom Shop’s…

We’ve got CHOW Tape Model, a reel-to-reel tape simulation that began as a class project, and 2B Clipped, a free distortion plug-in. And if you’d like to see for yourself just how much damage you’re doing to your audio, check out Psyscope, a free 4-channel oscilloscope. Head over to our huge archives for many more free plug-ins! CHOW Tape Model CHOW Tape Model began as a class project at Stanford University. The plug-in emulates an analogue tape recorder using physical modeling. The developer says that it was originally modeled after the Sony TC-260, but can now also emulate a variety of other machines. The plug-in is distributed under the GNU General Public license and all the technical stuff is posted on Github, so you can contribute to it if you’re technically-minded. As of now, CHOW Tape Model is available for Windows, macOS and Linux in VST, VST3, AU, LV2 and stand-alone formats. Get CHOW Tape Model here 2B Played Music 2B Clipped Last week brought us two free distortion plug-ins, and here’s another one! 2B Clipped is based on the distortion engine from the developer’s commercial 2B Filtered filter plug-in. They say that turning up the distortion knob slightly will add character to the sound, while turning it past the half-way position will result in clip distortion. They’ve also added high pass and low pass filters before the drive stage, so you can adjust the frequency range affected by the distortion. 2B Clipped is a VST and VST3 plug-in for Windows.

Production has released The King 2. Alongside other improvements, the new version of the multi-band compressor plug-in sports a redesigned user interface and a new preset browser. Like the predecessor, The King 2 aims to make complex multiband compression easy to use. W.A. Production The King 2 The King first came out in 2017, so it was beginning to look like an ancient ruler in the fast-paced world of compressor plug-ins. W.A. Production has now revisited the plug-in and given it a fresh look, along with some other new features. The new, flattened GUI looks more modern and goes well with the company’s newer plug-ins like Orchid. Like its ancestor, The King 2 is a 5-band compressor with simplified controls. Each band offers its own threshold slider and make-up gain control. Unfortunately, the crossover frequencies cannot be adjusted, but then again, that would make The King much more complicated. Ease of use and quick results are The King’s main objectives, and five pre-defined bands should be enough in most cases. In the top half, you’ll find the basic settings, which are largely unchanged from the predecessor. Again, simplicity and ease of use takes preference over in-depth controls. There’s the Magic EQ, a one-knob equalizer that lets you choose from three pre-defined curves. And instead of individual attack and release controls, The King 2 offers a single Time knob. The Mix knob allows for parallel compression, and you can activate the built-in brickwall limiter by clicking the button below it. Two knobs let you dial in the desired amounts of upward and downward compression. So what’s new? As it turns out, The King 2 doesn’t offer any new features in…

The new Space Delay plug-in mimics the legendary unit, and is integrated into the company’s T-RackS mixing and mastering software platform. IK Multimedia – Space Delay Owing to a mix of dynamic convolution and physical modeling technologies, the new IK Multimedia Space Delay manages to capture the Roland Space Echo in all its glory – complete with its three playback heads, variable speed motor, and spring reverb. The original unit is well-loved for its “potentially unpredictable delay that is warm and gritty sounding”, as well as its self-oscillation capabilities, which can be further manipulated using the onboard controls. The plug-in is able to recreate the original’s subtle space and coloration, all the way to endless swells and echoes. It has a familiar layout, with controls for Rate, Feedback, Delay Pan, Reverb, tempo sync, along with the unique head timing and panning features. Updated for the modern producer Of course, IK didn’t just stop at cloning the Space Echo. The company added several bits of functionality to the plug-in to aid modern producers. These include a stereo operation, high and low-pass input filters, a ducking feature, and lo-fi effects (unit noise and tape age). Price and availability The IK Space Delay is available now from the T-RackS Custom Shop, the IK Multimedia online store, and from IK dealers. It can be used as a single plug-in, or racked up inside the T-RackS software shell, although owning T-RackS 5 is not compulsory. The price is EUR/USD 99 sans sales taxes/VAT.…

Space Duck also offers a few extras for creative sound design, including modulation, bitcrushing and several filters. 2getheraudio Space Duck Ducking delays seem to be a thing this year. We’ve already seen Comeback Kid and Dynamic Delay, and now 2getheraudio is joining the fun with Space Duck. But a quick glance at the GUI reveals that this plug-in has quite a bit more to offer than just ducked delays. The idea behind ducking delays and reverbs is simple: The ducker (aka sidechain compressor) reduces the volume of the effect while the input signal is playing, which means that the effect can only be heard when there’s room for it in the mix. Space Duck offers separate delay and reverb sections, both with their own ducking function. The essential controls are accessible in simple view. The stereo delay has separate time and feedback knobs for the left and right channels. The reverb offers various algorithms to choose from, as well as a size control. In the center of both sections, you’ll find a large ducking knob alongside a release control. This lets you dial in the amount of ducking and the time it takes for the effect level to come back up when the input signal is silent. Both sections also offer separate level controls. Expert view Several buttons hint at the additional creative options available in Space Duck, which can be edited in depth in expert mode. In the delay section, this gives you access to modulation (with rate and depth controls) and fractal, which seems to be a ring modulator of sorts. The reverb…

In a move that seems like a logical consequence, streaming giant SoundCloud has now introduced its own online mastering service in collaboration with Dolby. After uploading your tracks to SoundCloud, you now have the option to have them mastered automatically. SoundCloud online mastering With more and more online mastering services becoming available, it seemed only like a matter of time until SoundCloud would implement its own service. Why leave that revenue to someone else, when you can keep it to yourself, right? Now, the company has teamed up with Dolby to integrate online mastering directly into the popular streaming platform. As of now, the new service still seems pretty basic. After uploading your tracks, you have a choice of four mastering algorithms, which focus on different frequency ranges and loudness targets: Thunder, Aurora, Clear Sky and Sunroof. For example, Thunder is intended for bass-heavy tracks, while Clear Sky is a transparent mode meant for pop music and similar styles. You can preview and compare the results using a selectable 30-second snippet of your track, and adjust the mastering intensity. After deciding on a mastering style, the system will render the final master in a matter of minutes. After deciding on a mastering style, the file is rendered within minutes According to SoundCloud, the new service works on files submitted in WAV (16/24 bit), FLAC, AIFF and MP3 formats. It delivers the final master in the same format. The company recommends that you leave about 3-6 dB of headroom in your uploaded mixes, and minimize the use of compression and limiting.

We’ve also got an experimental drum and percussion synthesizer. Introducing Wave Destroyer, V-Dist Classic and Ideal! Want more free plug-ins? Head over to our archives! GMH Audio Wave Destroyer Wave Destroyer by GMH Audio is a distortion plug-in capable of a wide range of tones. It offers three distortion modes (Saturate, Distort and DESTROY) and an additional Turbo button for extra drive. You can further adjust the distortion with the Asym and Bias knobs. Wave Destroyer also has extensive pre and post EQ sections with high and low cut filters and 3-band equalizers. The plug-in is available for free, but you can also name your own price to support the developer. Wave Destroyer is available for Windows and macOS (excluding Catalina) in VST and AU formats (64 bit). Get Wave Destroyer here Violin Melody V-Dist Classic According to the developer, the quirky V-Dist Classic is an “amazing one-knob distortion VST plug-in that will make a true sausage from your audio spectrum”. Sounds tasty! Violin Melody says that it’s backwards compatible to the original V-Dist. The plug-in is available with three colourful skins. There’s also a pro version coming soon, which adds input and output knobs, oversampling and a “banana mode”. Like Wave Destroyer, V-Dist Classic lets you name your own price. V-Dist Classic is a VST plug-in for Windows. Download V-Dist Classic here Xoxos Ideal Just last week, we wrote about Universe by xoxos. Now, the developer has released yet another synth plug-in that looks almost identical, but is a different beast altogether.…

Now you can finally put it to good use! The creator of the awesome Samplr app for iPad has released Samplr for Touchbar, which turns the weird touch-sensitive ribbon into a surprisingly capable sampler. And it’s free! Samplr for Touchbar Do you own a recent MacBook Pro? And if you do, how much do you actually use its Touch Bar? While Apple may have had reasons for not putting a full-on touch screen on the MacBook Pro (mostly related to the OS and its touch usability), the Touch Bar always seemed like an odd stopgap solution. I don’t think I know anyone who uses it for much more than volume and brightness control, let alone professional applications. So what can you do with it? Marcos Alonso, creator of the wonderful Samplr app for iPad, has decided that it’s time to finally put the Touch Bar to good use. His new app Samplr for Touchbar is like a mini version of Samplr that runs in your Touch Bar. It’s fun to play with and surprisingly capable, and it’s free. Four play modes Samplr for Touchbar can record audio using your computer’s internal microphone. It offers four play modes: slicer, looper, bow and tape. Slicer lets you play sample fragments like individual hits by tapping on them. Looper mode loops sections of audio. In bow mode, you can use granular synthesis to turn a small fragment of audio into something new. And tape mode lets you play audio at -200 to +200 % of the original speed. You can choose the play mode in the play controls, where you’ll also find an envelope…

TC Electronic introduces Midas Heritage 3000 plug-ins and controllers https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/07/08/tc-electronic-introduces-midas-heritage-3000-plug-ins-and-controllers/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=tc-electronic-introduces-midas-heritage-3000-plug-ins-and-controllers https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/07/08/tc-electronic-introduces-midas-heritage-3000-plug-ins-and-controllers/#respond Wed, 08 Jul 2020 18:59:17 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=17594 TC Electronic has released the PEQ 3000 and DYN 3000 EQ and compressor plug-ins inspired by the Midas Heritage 3000 console. Like other recent plug-ins by TC Electronic, the PEQ 3000 and DYN 3000 can be combined with optional hardware controllers. Will your studio desk soon be covered in TC controllers? TC Electronic Midas Heritage 3000 plug-ins Only a couple of weeks after releasing Master X HD and Brickwall HD, TC Electronic presents two more plug-in/controller combos. The PEQ 3000 and DYN 3000 plug-ins are inspired by the Midas Heritage 3000, a widely used console from the early 2000s. The company claims that they bring the “true tone and feel” of the mixing desk to your DAW. And if you’re a die-hard fan, you can spring for the optional hardware controllers, which put the plug-ins at your fingertips. Two things should be noted. Firstly, the Midas Heritage 3000 is a live console, yet TC Electronic markets the PEQ 3000 and DYN 3000 as mixing and mastering plug-ins for studio use. That doesn’t have to be a bad thing (lots of great live gear sounds good in the studio, too), but it’s something to keep in mind. Secondly, TC Electronic makes it sound like both plug-ins are modeled after the Midas Heritage 3000 console, but as far as I can tell, that particular desk didn’t feature integrated dynamics. This makes me wonder which hardware (if any) the DYN 3000 is really based on. Just some food for thought. PEQ 3000 The PEQ 3000 parametric equalizer offers up to 12 bands, as opposed to the 4 bands found on the console. It can operate in mono, stereo, M/S and L/R modes. Each…

Modal Skulpt V2.0 Firmware brings MPE support and more https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/07/08/modal-skulpt-v2-0-firmware-brings-mpe-support-and-more/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=modal-skulpt-v2-0-firmware-brings-mpe-support-and-more https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/07/08/modal-skulpt-v2-0-firmware-brings-mpe-support-and-more/#respond Wed, 08 Jul 2020 08:59:15 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=17588 Modal’s compact 4-voice Skulpt virtual-analogue synthesizer gets a firmware upgrade that brings MPE support, Sustain/Arp Latch mode, Global Tuning Setting and MIDI-In Offset. Skulpt V2.0 Modal’s funny looking synthesizer has a remarkable amount of power and sophistication within it’s strangely aligned form. It’s a fun place to root around amongst the 32-oscillator virtual analogue sound engine. It’s both familiar and surprising with some innovative features and a just about usable touch keyboard. It really comes alive when it’s paired with the Modal App which pulls out all the parameters into a comprehensive editor that, for me at least, cleans up some of the strange lines and shift functions. V2.0 brings in that wonderfully expressive MPE mode and elevates Skulpt into an instrument with polyphonic control and expression. You are going to want to get yourself an MPE compatible controller keyboard or sequencer because that little touch keyboard is not going to cut it. They’ve also fixed the Arpeggiator because some joker left out the ability to latch the Arp. They’ve also added a Global Tuning function and the ability to octave transpose incoming MIDI. There are lots of other improvements to things like stability in MIDI loops, sync options, merging from USB and MIDI inputs and a bunch of other fixes. The Modal App has also been updated to reflect the changes and both the App and the firmware are free downloads. The Skulpt is a decent little polyphonic synth for £245 and this updates rewards existing users and should attract anyone looking for a cost-effective way into expressive polyphonic performance.

Initial Audio IA-LA1 compressor: How much colouration would you like? https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/07/07/initial-audio-ia-la1-compressor-how-much-colouration-would-you-like/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=initial-audio-ia-la1-compressor-how-much-colouration-would-you-like https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/07/07/initial-audio-ia-la1-compressor-how-much-colouration-would-you-like/#respond Tue, 07 Jul 2020 00:59:07 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=17572 Initial Audio has released the IA-LA1 compressor. No, it isn’t a carbon copy of the LA-2A, although it does borrow some ideas from the classic. With very few controls, IA-LA1 seems easy to use and promises quick results. And here’s a nifty feature: you can dial in the amount of total harmonic distortion (THD) and control how much the compressor colours the signal. Initial Audio IA-LA1 Only a few days after Dynamic Delay, Initial Audio has already released the next plug-in. With a limited number of knobs, the IA-LA1 compressor plug-in is designed for ease of use. It’s not quite a one-knob compressor, but it takes a cue from the famous LA-2A and offers two simple controls for adjusting the compression: threshold and makeup. The other parameters like ratio, attack and release are either fixed or determined automatically; Initial Audio hasn’t shared the details. This means that IA-LA1 is not a surgical precision tool, but rather a compressor/limiter designed for quick, musical results. It also offers input, output and gain reduction meters, as well as an input gain control and a compress/limit switch, another detail inspired by the LA-2A. According to Initial Audio, the IA-LA1 uses a transparent algorithm that doesn’t colour the signal. But sometimes a bit of colouration might be what you want. That’s where the THD knob comes in. It lets you dial in the desired amount of total harmonic distortion for adding warmth and depth to the sound. That’s a nice feature that opens up new sonic possibilities. If IA-LA1 sounds as good and behaves as musically as its LA-2A heritage suggests, it’ll be an interesting alternative to other simplified compressors. Especially for the USD 19…

After all, most of Neural’s recent offerings – like the Fortin Cali Suite, the Granophyre and Nolly Archetype plug-in – have been tailored to heavier styles. But refreshingly, the new Archetype is geared toward an altogether different sound, namely that of Vulfpeck’s Cory Wong.  Archetype Cory Wong Each product in Neural DSP’s Archetype series contains emulations of amps, cabs and favourite effects. The Cory Wong edition includes three amps called D.I Funk Console, The Clean Machine and The Amp Snob. As you’d expect, all three provide clean, tight, transparent funk guitar tones. Neural DSP Archetype Cory Wong The D.I Funk Console is based on an analogue channel strip from a mixing desk, with a Tube Saturation that has selectable frequencies on the EQ section, High Pass and Low Pass filters. The Clean Machine is described as “an amalgamation of the best clean amps in the industry” that delivers “crisp, clean tones with a beautifully warm top end.” Finally, the amusingly titled The Amp Snob is modelled on “one of the rarest amplifiers in history”, which we take as an allusion to a Dumble-style boutique amp. By the way, if you need some help getting some D-style tones, you should check out some of these pedals. But the Archetype conceot also includes built-in cab sims, and the Cory Wong edition provides 108 IRs per cab for you a total of 324 IRs at your disposal. That gives you a lot of choice in tailoring your final guitar tone. Nice! Effects The plug-in also throws in some pre-effects, too. The Postal Service is…

SampleScience Vaporwaves 3 Following up on the positive reception of the second edition of the Vaporwaves series is number 3. The 52 sounds were once again recording on audio and video cassettes to lend to the 80s motif. This time around they focused more on pads, synthesizers, and bass sounds. It comes with control over the envelope, in-app preamp, filter controls, and multiple LFOs. The GUI will be entirely familiar if you’ve used SampleScience products before. The application runs on Windows and Mac VST/3 and AU plug-in standards. All SampleScience applications are unique and sound great. And at just $30 you won’t break the bank. More information and pricing  IK Multimedia Clavitube Furthering the capabilities of SampleTank 4, IK Multimedia introduces Clavitube – an immense sample pack with over 4GB of sounds and 252 different instruments. The sounds were created by taking different models of clavinets and running them through guitar amplifiers. There are an insane number of amps used including Marshall, Fender, Roland. The sounds are definitely vibey and unique and considering the total size of the library $79 is a steal for adding this level of tonal options.

Various frequency band systems are available with a whopping discount of 100 Euros! This is a limited availability offer as long as stocks last. If we’ve whetted your appetite, read on for tech details and money saving links. Sennheiser XSW 1-835 So what’s the deal with the XSW 1-835 wireless microphone? Well, it’s based upon Sennheiser’s XSW wireless technology; the microphone uses the 835 dynamic capsule plucked from the evolution series.

Additionally, you’ll also benefit from the advantages of Sennheiser’s XSW wireless system technology. Each XSW set allows you to choose from one of ten channels within a preset frequency bank. Simply purchase the XSW wireless set with the frequency bank that best suits your application. Operation is a doddle with an auto-scan function finding free and available frequencies for you.

Importantly, transmitter and receiver pairing is as simple as the push of a button; the built-in display keeping you posted on battery life. Talking of battery life, two AA batteries will give you up to 10 hours of performance time! The pro features continue with both jack and XLR outputs on offer; you can also switch between line and mic level from the receiver.

The Kickstarter campaign promises quick setups, freedom from cables and ease of use. Is this the beginning of a connectivity revolution? Or is it just another Kickstarter destined to disappear without a trace? TYXIT: A Wireless Revolution? When TYXIT’s press release dropped into our inbox we were, admittedly, sceptical. We hear words and phrases such as “revolutionary” and the cringeworthy “game-changer” bandied around on a daily basis. It’s not the first time we’ve been promised a revolution in wireless technology; do you remember Audiofusion? No? We didn’t think you would… Why should you care about TYXIT then? Well, we think that this technology might actually deliver. TYXIT’s aim is to free you from endless cables, expensive wireless systems and monitoring and recording problems. It’s a nice idea, isn’t it? All you need is to plug in one of TYXIT’s transmitters, use a receiver pack for your monitoring and mix yourself using an app on your phone. So What’s The Catch? Importantly the TYXIT T.ONE system works on the ISM frequency band; this is much more robust than other cheap systems which use domestic Wi-Fi. It’s affordably priced and appears well-engineered, so what’s the catch? If you’re in a band with only a few input sources, we can see this working well for you. If you play in a traditional rock band, with multiple mic sources, it may become financially prohibitive. We also have reservations over the ability to interface multiple channels with a front of house system. It should be noted that you’ll probably need an additional computer; we can’t see much info on multichannel audio…

EvilQuest encrypts the files on your hard drive and claims that you’ll only be able to regain access your data if you fork over some bitcoins. But that’s not all: it also infests your system with other malware including a keylogger, which can reveal your sensitive information to the attackers. EvilQuest ransomware Malware that specifically affects Macs is still comparatively rare. But it does exist – and this time around, us musicians should be paying attention. EvilQuest is a new malicious piece of code that seems to spread through pirated copies of popular music applications, among others. Once EvilQuest has found its way onto your hard drive, it encrypts the drive, preventing you from accessing your files. It then proceeds to tell you that the only way to get your data back is to pay ransom in the amount of USD 50 in bitcoins. The attackers claim that you’re “guaranteed” to get your files back, but I think we all know where this is going. Caution: the EvilQuest ransomware spreads through pirated music software! And EvilQuest doesn’t stop there. IT experts have identified various other bits of malicious code that could expose your personal data to the attackers, and these will likely continue to run even if you pay ransom and regain access to your files. The malware apparently searches your system for files like wallet.pdf, wallet.png and key.png, which are associated with handling cryptocurrency. It also installs a keylogger, which tracks your keystrokes and transmits them to the attackers, potentially exposing your passwords and sensitive data. Keep your data safe Sounds scary, right? But here’s the thing: To contract EvilQuest,…

As the name implies, this is a tape-style saturation tool. It includes three different types of analog tape emulations and three different types of distortion, which you can freely combine to create the sound that’s right for your production. In this plug-in, you will find controls for the input and output volume, the distortion section (tube, transistor or soft-clipping), saturation control and the tape area with emulation selection. In the middle there are two VU meters for the left and right channels. The studio tape playback equalization is either the IEC – or NAB standard. Of course, you can also add the mandatory tape hiss and mechanical noise, specifying the amount manually. Simple on the outside, 413 Tape Saturator looks like a powerful tape saturation and distortion processor in plug-in form. Prices and dates Mia Laboratories 413 Tape Saturator is currently available from the company’s website at an introductory price of EUR 49 down from EUR 99. The plug-in runs on Mac OSX 10.7 or higher and Windows 7 or higher in VST, VST3, AAX and AU 64-bit formats. For authorization, you need a free iLok account or a paid-for USB dongle. A 14-day unlimited demo version and a PDF user manual are also available for download. Tape saturation plug-ins are plentiful in today’s audio technology landscape. This post, for example, contains no less than 9 tape saturators, all of which are completely free!

If you’ve been waiting for a way to control Apollo Console via MIDI, you’ll probably find this tool very useful. There’s even a free version! UA Midi Control Many owners of Universal Audio Apollo interfaces have been waiting for a solution that enables them to control the Apollo Console software via MIDI. Radu Varga’s new app Apollo Midi Control acts as a link between Apollo Console and your MIDI controller(s). You can map parameters according to your needs and preference. The app is still in development and more features are yet to come, but UA Midi Control already looks like a very useful problem solver. The free version of the app, which has now been released, allows you to control volume, pan, solo, mute, gain, PAD, phase, low cut, phantom power and send levels. It supports knobs, momentary buttons and toggle switches on your controller. You can also specify the parameter ranges by setting minimum and maximum values for each parameter. The developer says that UA Midi Control detects the connected MIDI controllers and supports using multiple controllers at once.

Another benefit of the full version is support for synchronized feedback.

BandLab Albums: A utopia for musicians’ digital publishing needs? https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/06/30/bandlab-albums-a-utopia-for-musicians-digital-publishing-needs/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=bandlab-albums-a-utopia-for-musicians-digital-publishing-needs https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/06/30/bandlab-albums-a-utopia-for-musicians-digital-publishing-needs/#respond Tue, 30 Jun 2020 19:59:08 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=17483 The next step in BandLab’s plan to democratize music making (and make it as fair to artists as possible) is quite logical – a marketplace. Straight from the get-go, BandLab Albums wants to be what Bandcamp and other rivals are, for better or worse, not. 100% for the artist BandLab Albums is mainly distinguished by giving artists complete ownership of their material while paying off every last penny. It’s all as transparent as it can be – publish an album, set a price (it can be free) and monetize it. No cut for the service and no third parties involved, payment processor aside. Some sensible limitations are in place, of course. An album can contain up to 50 songs and up to 10 files can be uploaded as downloadable bonus materials following an album’s purchase. BandLab Albums is available as a web service, iOS and Android App. It’s also ties in nicely with BandLab, which is a free and fully-featured DAW built out of what was left from Cakewalk SONAR when the BandLab people bought it. With artist-first music recording and distribution systems in place, I think the BandLab project could become a leading digital music marketplace. Alas, the masses will happily keep streaming from greedy Spotify out of convenience. But truly caring fans will certainly appreciate the opportunity to directly support their favorite acts by buying their music. It’s unbelievable that this has become an actual privilege for both fans and artists at this point, but it’s just how the tides have turned. Let’s hope BandLab Albums makes a strong impact and changes things for the better! Yeah! But… Music downloads are delivered in a somewhat dodgy 96Kbps /…

There are full envelope controls, and the onboard effects suite lets you further shape your sound with controls over reverb, compression, colour, widening, and saturation. A dual layer engine allows you to shape tonalities in interesting ways for additional control, including keyboard splitting. The set comes in 1.7GB over 726 samples for Kontakt 5.8 and higher, but also comes in standalone WAVs in VST and AU. For only $79 you get these great sounding samples in an easy to use interface.

We’ve also got a FetDrive, a FET-based saturator, and the wonderful Valhalla Space Modulator is now free for everyone. Can’t get enough of great free plug-ins? Check out our huge archives! 2Rule TwoRuleFilter TwoRuleFilter is an updated version of the older 2RuleFilter. The plug-in is a self-resonating Moog-style filter with low pass, band pass and high pass modes, which can be modulated by an LFO with tempo sync and an envelope follower. Its best feature, however, is the “scrambler”, which plays filtered bits of audio at random with selectable time divisions. That’s a great way to turn any signal into a glitchy, filtered, rhythmic mess. To round things off, TwoRuleFilter also includes a bit crusher. TwoRuleFilter is a VST and VST3 plug-in for macOS. The older version (2RuleFilter) is also available for Windows. Get TwoRuleFilter here Analog Obsession FetDrive After FetSnap, Analog Obsession has derived yet another free plug-in from their emulation of a classic FET Compressor. FetDrive leaves out the compressor part and delivers a saturation effect based on the same circuit. The Drive knob raises the input level (with gain compensation) to drive the circuit into saturation. There’s also a Tone control before the saturation stage. The plug-in also offers a Mix knob for blending the dry and wet signals, as well as an output level control. FetDrive is available for Windows and macOS in VST, VST3 and AU formats. Download FetDrive here Valhalla DSP ValhallaSpaceModulator ValhallaSpaceModulator used to be a freebie for owners of a paid plug-in by Valhalla DSP. Developer Sean Costello seems to…

If so the Dynacord MXE5 could be the box for you! We take a look at the first release from Dynacord’s new MXE matrix mix engine series…   Dynacord MXE5 Matrix Mix Engine What’s a Matrix Mix Engine when it’s at home then eh? In essence, the MXE5 is a big old box of DSP processing which provides a 24×24 patch matrix, 12 mic/line inputs, 8 line outputs and a basic mix engine. You could use it, for example as a virtual patch bay for audio signals, networking mic/line inputs or all of the above! Dynacord has squarely aimed the MXE5 at commercial installations and large live systems; stadiums, sports facilities, live music venues, theatres and conference centres for example. Basically, anywhere you need to patch, mix and move audio around a building. Controlling the MXE5 is carried out with Dynacord’s proprietary SONCIUE software. Furthermore, the onboard board DSP offers EQ, ambient noise control, acoustic echo cancellation and other useful features. Dante Equipped The MXE5 is yet another new device which has been released with Dante networking capabilities; importantly that opens up networking with a huge amount of 3rd party gear. Everything from a Behringer Wing up to a Yamaha Rivage offers Dante nowadays; hence it’s no surprise (and welcoming) to see it on offer here. Admittedly, the MXE5 isn’t the sexiest or most exciting thing you’ll see released this year. However, our industry often relies on workmanlike tools to get the job done. One of these units would be a great way of putting your amp and crossover rack on a…

The multi-effect tool for rhythmic and granular stutter effects and modulations, which was first released in 2016, has received a major overhaul and many new features. At the same time, iZotope has unveiled the Creative Suite 2 bundle, which contains Stutter Edit 2 and several other plug-ins. iZotope Stutter Edit 2 The artist and producer BT was one of the pioneers of stutter editing when the technique first became popular. Manual stutter editing can be a tedious and extremely time-consuming process, sometimes with an uncertain outcome. Based on BT’s ideas, iZotope Stutter Edit makes it easy to beef up your productions with creative stutter effects. Effects can be triggered via a MIDI keyboard or controller and automated in the DAW. Stutter Edit 2 is the new and improved version of the plug-in with many new features. The plug-in slices audio into “razor-thin” fragments to create typical stutter effects, which can be pitched, reversed, modulated and combined with other effects like reverb, distortion or filters. You can create your own macros (“gestures”) and assign them to hotkeys on your MIDI keyboard, for triggering the effect in real-time. Stutter Edit 2 features a new auto mode, which lets you audition gestures quickly. The curve editor is a neat way to draw modulation for any parameter. There’s also a new visualizer, which gives you an idea of what a gesture does before you trigger it. The plug-in contains a complete effects chain, which you can rearrange in any order. Stutter Edit 2 comes with a new chorus, new comb filter and a new reverb. It also offers distortion, phaser/flanger, tapestop, and various filters.…

Monastery Grand It’s not, as I originally assumed, an ancient piano found in the crypt beneath an old dilapidated monastery. This is a classy grand piano used for concerts in a marvellous hall situated in an old monastery in Pilsen, the beer capital of the Czech Republic. They took over 50GB of recordings and curated that down to a pristine 3.52GB sampled instrument. Melda has decided to give this piano away for free to users of their MSoundFactory modular virtual instrument platform. But the best thing is that it will work with the free “player” version so everyone can get the piano for free whether you’ve bought the full version or not. MSoundFactory MSoundFactory is a deep and complex sound generation system that features oscillators, filters, samplers, effects and modulation. All the building blocks you need for synthesis, sampling and sound design are here. The depth of editing you can do per voice is quite stunning with grids where you can construct the structure of your instrument whether that’s using analogue models, wavetables, samples, FM or physical modelling. And then do the same with the effects engine before scattering signal all over the place through the modulation matrix. I think it’s safe to say that the editing potential in here is epic. Melda Productions MSoundFactory But all the editing comes with the full version of MSoundFactory that costs £270 although it’s currently on offer for £180. If you want the sounds without the editing then the LE version is yours for £89.…

The nifty tool, which lets you send audio directly from one application to another, used to be a Windows exclusive. Now the developer has made it available on the Mac, as well. Sooner or later there’ll be a time when you need it. VB-Cable for Mac There are many cases in which you’d need to connect the audio output of one application to the input of another. Recording audio from your browser or a VOIP app in your DAW, for example. Or recording audio from your DAW or another source in a screen video. VB-Cable certainly isn’t the first application to let you do this. Soundflower, which was initially developed by Cycling ’74, was the de-facto standard for this sort of thing on the Mac for a long time, but fell into disrepair. Newer alternatives are Blackhole by Existential Audio and Rogue Amoeba’s Loopback, for example. On Windows, VB-Cable became a popular solution, which has now been ported to the Mac. Each VB-Cable is a virtual audio device with one stereo input and output. Whatever you send into the input, comes out of the output at the other end. Simple. This functions like a virtual cable that lets you send audio from one app to another. Like the PC version, VB-Cable for Mac supports up to four stereo channels, labeled VB-Cable A+B and C+D. It can handle sample rates from 44.1 to 192 kHz. The developer says that the app works right out of the box, without the need for any additional configuration. Price and compatibility VB-Cable is donationware. You can download the simple VB-Cable with one stereo channel…
