Mainly, there’s convenient new functionality, which we’ll have a look below, as well as a bunch of free plug-ins added to select bundles. Certainly enough to warrant a major update! Waves V12 V12 sees the following key areas of focus: Resizable GUIs – Waves pluggos now have 5 adjustable sizes for their user interfaces. About time, huh? Preset Browser – Waves has so many plug-ins out there that finding the exact right one is outright daunting for newcomers. The new preset browser aims to ease them in with text-based searching and preset auditioning. Retina Graphics – Waves plug-ins now look sharper on modern Macs and other high-resolution screens. They also benefit from optimized GPU performance. Compatibility improvements – Waves promises “full ongoing compatibility” with current DAWs and operating systems. Free plug-ins – owners of Platinum, Horizon, and Diamond bundles get LoAir, Smack Attack, and Submarine for zilch. How’s it going for users? So far, reactions to the update seem mixed. As welcome as the changes are, some Waves users report the following issues: – DAW rescans all Waves plug-ins, which may take quite a while – V11 of Waves plug-ins still remain installed, taking up space – The GUI graphics are upscaled, not re-drawn. This makes for a slightly blurred look, even on Retina displays. – Update fees could reach as high as EUR 250, depending on the number and kind of Waves plug-ins you own. So V12 is a bit of hit and miss so far, judging by the reports in forums like KVR. This is probably still a worthwhile update for some users,…

Genki Instruments Wavefront can now bring Bluetooth MIDI into your modular https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/17/genki-instruments-wavefront-can-now-bring-bluetooth-midi-into-your-modular/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=genki-instruments-wavefront-can-now-bring-bluetooth-midi-into-your-modular https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/17/genki-instruments-wavefront-can-now-bring-bluetooth-midi-into-your-modular/#respond Sat, 17 Oct 2020 18:29:30 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=18890 The Wavefront Eurorack module is designed to work with the Wave ring for converting gestures into CV but now it can accept MIDI over Bluetooth from any device giving you a wireless MIDI route into your Eurorack. Wavefront Bluetooth This is an update for the existing Wavefront because the technology is already inside. Bluetooth is what runs the connection between the Wave ring and the Wavefront and so repurposing that connection to a broader range of devices is both brilliant and obvious – of course, why didn’t we think of this before? In case you’re not aware Wavefront is a 4HP Eurorack module that acts as a receiver for positional data from the Wave ring. You move your hands, twist, tap and turn and that movement is translated into control voltage that emerges out of the 4 CV outputs and 2 gate/trigger outputs. It’s a very cool device that adds a bit of performance to your modulations. Now, you can send it MIDI over Bluetooth. What this means is that I can connect my iPad or iPhone directly to my Eurorack and make use of some of the fabulous MIDI control apps. Along with the firmware Genki is also providing a template for TouchOSC to make things as simple as possible. Potentially any computer or device that can connect via Bluetooth could potentially be used as a controller for your Eurorack. So, how about using a ROLI Seaboard? And this is MIDI-based so you don’t need to use CV Tools in Ableton Live or the Bitwig Hardware devices you can use any MIDI controls and automation. Wavefront can only handle one Bluetooth device at a time but it’s not difficult…

The Erae Touch consists of 18 touch points with support for Midi Polyphonic Expression (MPE) and MIDI 2.0. The innovative controller lets you freely assign parameters to each area so that you can control both notes and parameters with touch. All areas are lit in full color, too, making for a very sleek and visually impressive controller. Erae Touch Controller The Erae mapping software. Comparisons to the Roli Blocks units are somewhat justified. Visually, the Erea is reminiscent of an oversized installation of several Blocks controllers. However, just like the size, the possibilities are bigger as well. Mapping the controller is done by software which takes your templates to the hardware. The mapping possibilities are comprehensive. You are able to turn the touch areas into faders, buttons, note fields, or a plain X / Y pad. So you can cover almost any aspect of your typical virtual instrument just by touch. Like a modern piece of equipment, the Erae connects over USB-C and features continous modulation to ensure very low latency operation. On the hardware itself, you can quickly recall presets, templates, and other settings. So the Erae is mean to be played live, not just a fancy studio tool. Price and availability UPDATE (16 October, 2020): The Erae Touch is live on Kickstarter! The Erae Touch is scheduled for pre-order from September 2020. It will be financed via Kickstarter. The pre-order price for backers is EUR 700. The retail price once the unit is ready to hit stores will be EUR 800. The package will include the MPE-capable software synthesizer Nylon, made…

What is there to gawk at? Plenty! We are talking three audio interfaces: Red 8Line, RedNet A16R MkII, and RedNet D16R MkII. And the fourth new product, of course, is the RedNet R1 Remote Control. Here’s more about each box of modern audio wonder: Red 8Line Focusrite Pro Red 8Line Fancy 58 inputs and 64 outputs? This is exactly what this interface with Pro Tools HD and Dante connectivity offers. There are also ADAT and S / PDIF inputs and outputs for a complete digital connectivity suite. On the analog side, we have eight inputs and ten outputs on the analog side. In addition, you will find a pair of Red Evolution microphone preamps sporting up to 63 dB of gain. The converters work at up to 192 kHz/24-bit resolution. The dynamic range for the A/D conversion is a healthy 119 dB, while the D/A conversion reaches a healthier 121 dB. Red 8Line is compatible with Mac and PC computers and also has a Thunderbolt 3 port. The front panel monitor control lets you listen in mono, stereo, and multi-channel (up to Dolby Atmos 7.1.2) summing variants. You will also find two headphone outputs on the front. On the added value side, a comprehensive software bundle featuring products from Brainworx and Focusrite Digital is also included. What’s the price, you ask? That would be EUR 2630.

The UTC 108 X, Malotki E4M – 4001B, Western Electric 111C, Haufe V178, Marinair LO1166/A and UTC 0-12 have been top choices for driving the vintage analog equipment we know and love. For example, the 108X comes straight out of the very first Ampex multitrack tape machines made in the 1950s, not to mention the fabled LA2A tube limiting amplifier. The Malotki exists in broadcast equipment made by the likes of Neumann, Telefunken, Siemens; and notably, the U73b limiter once considered the “German Fairchild”. Haufe transfomers were go-to choices for Georg Neumann and his game-changing microphones. The Marinair was, of course, used in the original Neve 1073 mic preamp/EQ modul and Neve 1272 channel strips. And the UTC O-12 was used in the famous UREI Blue Stripe 1176 compressor all the way through to revision F. Clearly, Kazrog has done a remarkable amount of homework before heading to the shed! But what do these virtual irons do for your productions? Short answer – they add heft, warmth, grit and attitude. Long answer – you get that and adjustable parameters such as strength, input impedance, a wet/dry ratio control knob, and an aptly titled Crush control for additional transformer saturation. Really cool! Kazrog True Iron – 50% off sale Presently, Kazrog is selling True Iron at a 50% discount which brings the price down to USD 20. This makes for a great moment to invest in one of the finest virtual analog plug-ins ever produced. A free demo version that’s not time limited but silences audio output randomly is available for further…

Layers have dedicated monophonic and legato modes per layer. The Rhythm page lets you sync modulations and arps to tempo.

If you tried the extended 90-day trial version of Ableton Live 10 Suite during lockdown, and have since been considering getting it, now’s your chance. Slice is giving away Ableton Live 10 Lite for free.  Ableton Live 10 Lite Ableton Live 10 Lite is a stripped down version of the flagship Ableton Live DAW, and a great way to become acquainted with it. The Session view, that defines Live’s workflow, can be found in the Lite version, which is where you compose using tempo-stretched audio and MIDI clips. There’s also the non-destructive processing of audio tracks, including the Warp time-stretching engine. Multi-track recording, plug-ins, MIDI sequencing, automation – Live 10 Lite doesn’t miss any of it. And serious producers may feel compelled to upgrade for just the Live 10 Standard’s and Suite’s comprehensive built-in effects and instruments alone. With the Lite, you are limited to eight audio and MIDI tracks – a bit quaint where modern productions are concerned. You also get two send and return tracks, the Complex warp mode, and some basic instruments – drum rack, instrument rack, the drum sampler Impulse, and the Simpler mini-sampler that lets you load, process and play samples. There are also nine effects (auto filter, beat repeat, chorus, compressor, EQ, delay, reverb…) as well as a tuner, the practical Utility effect, and an effects rack that lets you save channel strips. The racks are a powerful tool in Ableton, because they let you use effects and instruments in parallel. You will also find eight MIDI effects, such as arpeggiator, scale, and chord. Indeed, despite its limitations, there’s lots to do…

North Coast Synthesis Leapfrog VCF The North Coast Synthesis Leapfrog VCF is a 16 HP low pass filter module based on a unique design. The manufacturer says that rather than copying the classic VCF designs (Moog ladder, 2-pole state variable) for the umpteenth time, they’ve come up with an innovative filter topology of their own, which is characterized by a very steep, near-elliptical response curve. The module offers three modulation inputs (1V/oct, exponential FM, linear FM) and even includes a built-in VCA. The kit has a medium build…

LiquidSonics Reverberate 3: an advanced reverb for convolution lovers https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/13/liquidsonics-reverberate-3-an-advanced-reverb-for-convolution-lovers/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=liquidsonics-reverberate-3-an-advanced-reverb-for-convolution-lovers https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/13/liquidsonics-reverberate-3-an-advanced-reverb-for-convolution-lovers/#respond Tue, 13 Oct 2020 05:49:35 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=18792 Convolution-based reverbs are pretty cool. Impulse responses – small frequency response snapshots taken from real rooms or hardware effects – make for a very realistic sound. They also tend to be inexpensive, giving you access to reverbs from otherwise expensive hardware effects or places beyond your reach. One such reverb plug-in is LiquidSonics’ Reverberate. The developer has updated it to version 3 with the goal of possibly sounding better than the impulse response source material. LiquidSonics Reverberate 3 A key new feature in the new LiquidSonics Reverberate 3 is Fusion-IR, which enables more ways of combining IRs. For example, it lets you mix the early reflections from classic hardware with the reverb tail of another effect. The IRs used for this – i.e. impulse responses – are divided into several components to produce the full effect. The true stereo simulation has also been improved. Not only are there crossfeeds between the left and right channels, but you can also modulate them! This makes for a livelier, more motion-infused sound. There’s also the split modulation function that lets you send the parts of the impulse responses to two different convolution engines and modulate each individually. On the surface, Reverberate’s interface gets to shine in a new light and is also scaleable in size. Support for the VST3 plug-in format is also new, as well as two new IR packs (FS-24x and FS-48) which come bundled with version 3. Specifications and price LiquidSonics Reverberate 3 runs as a VST2, VST3, AU, and AAX plug-in on macOS 10.9 and higher and Windows 7 64-bit computers. Authorization is handled via iLok – your options are the iLok License Manager, an iLok 2/3 dongle, local authorisation and/or…

Puzzle Effects – a quirky new concept for boutique effects https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/11/puzzle-effects-a-quirky-new-concept-for-boutique-effects/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=puzzle-effects-a-quirky-new-concept-for-boutique-effects https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/11/puzzle-effects-a-quirky-new-concept-for-boutique-effects/#respond Sun, 11 Oct 2020 16:49:30 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=18779 Puzzle Effects are unique puzzle-shaped stompboxes that can fit together and be powered via a single power input. They’re the brain-child of French boutique pedal builder Florian Leca and are currently in the prototype stage. It certainly is an interesting concept, and not just a quirky design. Puzzle Effects I reached out to Florian Leca in Toulouse, France to ask about Puzzle Effects and find out the idea behind the series, along with plans for the future of the concept. Apparently the pedals have been a year and a half in the making, starting life as a DIY project during free time. So far, three working prototypes have been developed, fuzz,  distortion, and tremolo. You can see pictures of the Gold Digger, Silly Fuzz, and Cloudy Tremolo prototypes throughout this article. Puzzle Effects protoypes Jigsaw Pieces Each pedal interlinks with another just like a piece of a jigsaw puzzle. And because each unit has contacts on its sides that allow the guitar signal and power to run through, there’s no need for any cables in-between the pedals. This also means you can put the pedals in any order you desire to create your tones. Puzzle Effects Gold Digger, Silly Fuzz and Cloudy Tremolo prototypes Prototypes The enclosures are 3D printed and the effects schematics being used are all clones of popular effects, just to see if the concept works and then further develop the designs. The working prototypes appear to be performing well, and with no signal loss. And have started to gain popularity on social media. Puzzle Effects protoypes using contacts and interlocking shapes Puzzle Effects custom PCBs Boutique Designs I love the aesthetic and idea of these new pedals,…

Freebie alert: Baby Audio is giving away its Baby Comeback delay! https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/11/freebie-alert-baby-audio-is-giving-away-its-baby-comeback-delay/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=freebie-alert-baby-audio-is-giving-away-its-baby-comeback-delay https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/11/freebie-alert-baby-audio-is-giving-away-its-baby-comeback-delay/#respond Sun, 11 Oct 2020 10:39:37 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=18777 Baby Audio is giving away an amazing freebie, the Baby Comeback delay plug-in. This effect is a cut-down version of the developer’s well-known Comeback Kid delay plug-in. But that doesn’t mean that the sound and the effect itself are in any way inferior to the full version. It still retains the character and virtual analog sound that made the Baby Comeback popular. Unless you have need 40 different delays in your plug-in collection, you probably shouldn’t think twice before smashing the download button. Baby Audio Baby Comeback goes free Along with the integrated ducker, there are four programs to shape the sound depending on the style you’re after. With “Wide” you get a modern-sounding, wide delay/echo effect. “Analog”, as the name suggests, makes for a warmer, slightly muted and vintage sound. “Saucey” is richer and more pronounced, and “Cheap” creates a thin-sounding, lo-fi delay effect inspired by early digital delays. You can also run the delay engine in four time modes: straight, dotted, triplets, and free (no sync). In addition, the effect module has a feedback control and a ping-pong mode. A dry/wet control is also included. Overall, this is a high-quality delay plug-in that one wouldn’t expect to be available for free. Availability Baby Audio Baby Comeback is currently available free of charge on the manufacturer’s website. The plug-in runs on Mac OSX 10.7 or higher‌ and Windows 7 or higher as a VST, VST3, AAX, and AU. And, if you want more of that good stuff and are willing to pay, you can get Comeback Kid* for EUR 42.59.

Rather than wage a war between the analog and digital realms, KUSH likes a little bit of both. Which is why the plug-ins look and feel somewhat analog, but also take liberal advantage of the digital domain’s bit-perfect clarity and flexibility. KUSH Audio plug-ins sale Although a monthly payment of USD 9.99 (plus a one-time iLok purchase if you lack a dongle) gets you everything KUSH has and will release(d), subscriptions are certaily not for everyone. Pay and own for life is still the name of the game for most producers out there. So if you are looking into sorting out some KUSH plug-ins for your productions, now is the right time of the year. The developer has a sale on all its plug-ins, with discounts reaching up to a hearty 30%. If you haven’t yet come across the House of Kush, feel free to have a look at the product page – chances are you’ll find something you want to own. Like the Omega series which, at USD 23 per plug-in, is an obvious bargain. It features the Omega N saturator, the Omega A harmonics generator, and the Omega 458A tube/transformer emulation. It’s also worth checking out the compressors and equalizers, as the likes of Hammer DSP, Novatron, and Silika (read more) are among the best in market today. Note that individual purchases do not require an iLok dongle for authorization. Here’s a link for the sale.

Check out these two awesome compressors and an experimental reverb! Here’s Molto, Protoverb and DC1A. Head over to our huge archives for many more free plug-ins! VladG Molot Quite unbelievably, this free plug-in has been out since about 2012, and it’s still going strong. Looking like some sort of cold war era Soviet communications device, Molot is a colorful compressor that can add lots of character to your tracks. With plenty of control over the compression parameters, this could very well be the best free Fairchild-style compressor plug-in, even after so many years. Molot is available for macOS and Windows in VST and AU formats (32/64 bit). Get Molot here u-he Protoverb This free reverb plug-in was created by famed software synth developer u-he as a research by-product while they were working on other, more meaningful stuff. It went on to become one of the most cherished free reverbs. Protoverb is based on a room simulator with lots of resonances, which distinguishes it from most other algorithmic reverbs. There are very few knobs, but you can input text strings to define the structure of the delay network. It’s a research device, after all! Protoverb is available for macOS, Windows and Linux in VST, AU and AAX formats (32/64 bit). Get Protoverb here Klanghelm DC1A Here’s another characterful compressor. DC1A by Klanghelm is about as simple as it gets. The amount of compression is determined by the input and output level knobs, which is a delightfully simple approach. But don’t underestimate it!

1010music Bluebox: This tiny digital mixer & recorder seems to have it all! https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/10/1010music-bluebox-this-tiny-digital-mixer-recorder-seems-to-have-it-all/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=1010music-bluebox-this-tiny-digital-mixer-recorder-seems-to-have-it-all https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/10/1010music-bluebox-this-tiny-digital-mixer-recorder-seems-to-have-it-all/#respond Sat, 10 Oct 2020 13:49:15 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=18762 For those of us who spend most of our time in front to of a screen for work, it’s only natural to want to enjoy an opportunity to get away from the computer for bouts of tactile, mouse-free producing. However, the final result almost always ends up inside your DAW. And a regular mixer or digital recorder doesn’t always cut it when you want to present your music in the best possible way. Something is missing, and 1010music may have stumbled on to it… 1010music Bluebox The 1010music Bluebox is a cute and compact little digital mixer and recorder with a big ol’ colour screen, and a pleasant amount of knobs and buttons. One look at it and DAW-less musicians will be immediately intrigiued! The unit lets you hook up modulars, synths, samplers, and so on to six stereo 3.5mm TRS inputs. These are mapped onto 12 mono tracks or six stereo controls, and each track is independently controlled in terms of recording and playback. So what we have is a capable little mixer with added live performance features. 1010music Bluebox – front Each track features volume, gain, a 4-band parametric EQ, pan, mute, and solo controls. Global compressor, reverb, and delay effects let you mash your instruments together into a deep, cohesive whole. Tracks can be recorded separately or inside the stereo mix, onto a standard microSD card. Coupled with the physical knobs, nav, and transport buttons, the 3.5-inch touchscreen practically puts a micro-DAW at your fingertips. Finally, MIDI I/O with clock enables connecting and syncing to synthesizers and other MIDI-capable equipment. 1010music Bluebox – rear Three stereo outputs Instead of a single stereo output, Bluebox offers a solid three.…

Iceberg Audio The Sub: a quick fix for massive low-end https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/09/iceberg-audio-the-sub-a-quick-fix-for-massive-low-end/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=iceberg-audio-the-sub-a-quick-fix-for-massive-low-end https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/09/iceberg-audio-the-sub-a-quick-fix-for-massive-low-end/#respond Fri, 09 Oct 2020 10:44:16 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=18748 Developer Iceberg Audio promises a quick and easy antidote to your mix’s sub-par sub frequencies. Aptly titled The Sub, this new virtual instrument combines everything you need to get a basic sub bass going into a sleek and intuitive user interface. Iceberg Audio The Sub Iceberg Audio’s The Sub begins with an oscillator module that’s followed by an ADSR envelope and a pair of controls – Drive and Glide. An Extra Attack button gives the sub more perceived ‘punch’. Each of the included presets has a custom-designed Extra Attack profile. Internally, a pitch-independent attack overlay helps the notes cut through. The presets are found immediately above the oscillator. And that’s pretty much all there is to the plug-in. In the developer’s words, “less is more”! Convenient and quick I can easily see The Sub making its way into bass-heavy genres like trap, hip-hop and hard dance music. It’s just so convenient and quick, doing its job with minimum effort. Let’s hope the developer can come up with more plug-ins in the same style. There’s clear potential for The Sub’s concept to translate into other types of plug-ins, such as synthesizers, multi-effects, saturation, and much more. As much as I enjoy having options, sometimes all one needs is a simple and immediate solution. Tweaking to no end can get a little tiring after a while, and this is where one-knob (or two in this case) wonders like The Sub come in guns-blazing. Price and availability The Sub is being sold at an introductory price of USD 39, down from the regular USD 59. A free 14-day trial is also available. The plug-in runs in VST3 and AU formats on 64-bit Windows…

808303.studio: A free online TR-808 and TB-303 machine? That’s the rest of your day gone. https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/08/808303-studio-a-free-online-tr-808-and-tb-303-machine-thats-the-rest-of-your-day-gone/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=808303-studio-a-free-online-tr-808-and-tb-303-machine-thats-the-rest-of-your-day-gone https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/08/808303-studio-a-free-online-tr-808-and-tb-303-machine-thats-the-rest-of-your-day-gone/#respond Thu, 08 Oct 2020 10:04:43 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=18716 808303.studio is a web-based music creation platform built on the Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer and TB-303 Bassline developed by Yuri Suzuki and Roland. It’s an 808 and a 303 – now go and play! 808303.studio Well, this is totally brilliant. It’s an authentically emulated TR-808 and TB-303 side-by-side on a webpage. The look is different but instantly engaging and you find yourself very quickly lost in pattern creation in the best possible way. They’ve even sampled the button clicks which is completely genius. They sound awesome, just like you’d expect them to although they are missing all the individual editing and tweaking possibilities. But let’s not moan about not being able to tune the kick drum on a fabulously free online techno machine. Want to know how to use it? Well, let a Guy Called Gerald talk you through it. The TR-808 has no controls over the sounds. You get a Fill pattern and an “AI Variation” which, I think, scatters some steps about for you. Other than that you have Shuffle and Tempo knobs. The TB-303 gives you a choice of waveform, the filter section, Decay and Accent which is all manual and not automated per step for anything fancy like that. The Random button is very helpful. Hit Record The idea is that you make your tune and then share it to your socials. It has a “REC” button at the top and it will capture your performance and have it all ready to send to the internet – nice! This reminds me so much of the joy of Rebirth RB-338 from Propellerhead. It’s there, it’s free, accessible from anything – go make your tunes. More information 808303.studio…

Dell is jumping the gun by taking as much as GBP 269 off its Dell XPS 13 laptop. The XPS 13 is among the top choices for Windows music production laptops. It is powerful, sleek, and has a battery that lasts a long while. Dell XPS 13 Deal The latest Dell XPS 13 is usually priced around GBP 1569, but the discount slashes the price to a much nicer GBP 1299. That is, complete with free shipping. In terms of specs, you get that mammoth 10th-gen Core i7 CPU with integrated Iris Plus graphics, along with 8GB RAM and 512GB SSD storage. That’s plenty of music production muscle, unless you are heavily into sampled instruments. In which case, I’d bump the RAM to at least 16GB, and the SSD storage to 1TB. In addition to music projects, the laptop should handle video editing rather swiftly. The Iris chips are capable enough for the kind of light 4K video editing one does while cutting a vlog or performance video. All in all, nice one, Dell! The deal can be found here on the manufacturer’s website.

Neural DSP Quad Cortex – is it really the most powerful floor modeller on the planet? https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/07/neural-dsp-quad-cortex-is-it-really-the-most-powerful-floor-modeller-on-the-planet/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=neural-dsp-quad-cortex-is-it-really-the-most-powerful-floor-modeller-on-the-planet https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/07/neural-dsp-quad-cortex-is-it-really-the-most-powerful-floor-modeller-on-the-planet/#respond Wed, 07 Oct 2020 17:12:19 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=18697 The new Neural DSP Quad Cortex floor modeller was first demoed during Winter NAMM. Back then it was in Beta, and we were told that it used machine learning to make its models even better than its competitors. Since the Quad Cortex is going to be launched at the end of the month, I thought it was time we revisited this unit. Neural DSP Quad Cortex The Helsinki based company claims its Neural DSP Quad Cortex is “the most powerful floor modeler on the planet”. The unit is based around the 2GHz Quad-Core SHARC architecture, and this dedicated DSP is essentially the heart of the unit, providing it with a lot of realtime processing power. Add to that a 7” multi-touch display and it should also make the Quad Cortex super simple to navigate for users. It even has a built-in WiFi module that can be used for wireless preset sharing, or cloud backups, over-air firmware updates, and more. The modeller comes with over 50 amps, 70 effects, and 1000 IRs, so there should be plenty to keep you occupied and up and running. You get 11 footswitches on the front and one big Volume dial. The footswitches can also be used to control virtual knobs on the amp and effects models, by turning them to adjust the parameters. Combine this with that massive touch screen, and this should be a breeze to use. Neural DSP Quad Cortex The floor unit itself has a robust anodised aluminium unibody, and at only 1.9 kg, is lightweight and portable, but also very strong. You should have no issues transporting it to gigs and rehearsals, and it should be able handle the rigours associated with the road. Neural DSP Quad Cortex is lightweight and compact…

This means that you end up potentially having to make separate masters for each platform. Enter the ADPTR Audio Streamliner, which should help make your job a lot easier. Loudness wars The establishment of LUFS might have ended the loudness wars, but it still hasn’t completely dealt with what I like to call “fragmentation”. That is, each popular streaming platform has its own understanding of appropriate audio loudness. Which means, if you want your masters to translate well across all of them, you have to do separate masters for each – at least when it comes to loudness. Alas, this doesn’t even touch the territory of how streaming platforms’ different codec settings impact your master’s audio quality. This time, the mastering headache is not caused by excessive limiting, but rather by trying to figure out how your master will sound after uploading to Spotify or Apple Music, before you get to uploading. So that you have the liberty of making necessary adjustments beforehand, if needed. ADPTR Audio Streamliner Released under the Plugin Alliance umbrella, the ADPTR Audio Streamliner plug-in aims to take all that guesswork away. It’s Codec Auditioning lets you easily preview your master through the same audio compression algorithms used by the likes of Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, SoundCloud, etc. What’s more, Streamliner is also a capable metering suite in itself. It has state-of-the-art meters for loudness, dynamics, and true peak levels to help you dial in the most crucial…

Version 1.1 is UA’s response to a number of user inquiries, with lots of new and interesting features. Looks like Luna is finally catching up with competing products and is on the right track to carving a niche for itself. Universal Audio Luna Update Version 1.1 We rarely write about updates like these. However, the Universal Audio Luna version 1.1 includes enough new functions and bug-fixes to justify the attention. For example, there are important new functions like track grouping and the ability to edit various parameters of several tracks at the same time. On the more interesting side, “Session Versions” lets you save different versions of your song in separate “versions”. This way, you can do quick A/B comparisons or return to previous versions. There’s also the new bookmarks function that lets you set permanent markers for any important changes you’ve made to the session. The new version now has comprehensive MIDI clock output, too. Latencies can be adjusted separately for each MIDI track. Stability and performance have also been improved with the addition of bug-fixes and clean-up of errors. You can learn more about the changes in the videos below. Of course, this won’t be the last significant update to this relatively new DAW. There’s still room for improvement. But the combination of Luna, coupled with UA’s esteemed range of audio interfaces, and its collection of DSP-driven plug-ins already makes for a powerful recording and production setup. Prices and dates Luna is free for all owners of UA’s Thunderbolt audio interfaces, such as Apollo x16, x8p, x8, x6, x4, Twin MkII, Twin X, and Solo.…

Eventide TriceraChorus: Another H9 effect for Windows, macOS and iOS https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/06/eventide-tricerachorus-another-h9-effect-for-windows-macos-and-ios/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=eventide-tricerachorus-another-h9-effect-for-windows-macos-and-ios https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/06/eventide-tricerachorus-another-h9-effect-for-windows-macos-and-ios/#respond Tue, 06 Oct 2020 15:37:17 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=18681 Eventide is busy porting the H9 effects for Windows, macOS and iOS, with the latest being the TriceraChorus. Not just a chorus, but a “tri-chorus” in BBD (bucket-brigade) style with micro-pitch detuning. As with the other effects in the series, the release is celebrated with an introductory offer. Eventide TriceraChorus TriceraChorus is inspired by the classic tri-chorus effects found in pedals from the 70s and 80s. It’s a combination of a tri-chorus in the style of a bucket brigade, with Eventide’s micro-pitch detuning. The effect should make any instrument sound wider and fatter, with a smooth modulation. The Chorus mode is reminiscent of these early classic chorus effects, while the Chorale mode is based on classic tri-chorus rackmounted effects. Chorus Mix allows you to put just a touch of FX on the track, or reach into a powerful vibrato, and the Depth L/C/R controls lets you adjust the amount of modulation for all three voices (left, center and right). You can also deactivate individual voices. You can detune the left and right channels synchronously by up to +/- 40 cents using the Detune controls, or add delay to the chorus, to create slap-backs or a flanger-like effects, using the Delay controls. Swirl produces psychedelic flanger effects through “frequency shifting in the stereo image”. Finally, the Tone control allows you to cut the high and low frequencies. As a result, the sound becomes less muddy or gets a slightly darker character. As with all other plug-ins in this series, you will find the virtual ribbon control on the bottom which lets you modulate between parameters. Hotswitch, on the other hand, changes to a specified set of settings at the push of a button. Both functions…

Native Instruments Guitar Rig 6 PRO: First Impressions https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/06/native-instruments-guitar-rig-6-pro-first-impressions/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=native-instruments-guitar-rig-6-pro-first-impressions https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/06/native-instruments-guitar-rig-6-pro-first-impressions/#respond Tue, 06 Oct 2020 15:07:33 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=18679 Native Instruments has just released the behemoth Komplete 13 software bundle, and in amongst all those virtual synths, drums, and samples lurks the highly anticipated Guitar Rig 6 PRO. In this mini review I will give you my first impressions of this new virtual guitar rig software. Native Instruments Guitar Rig 6 PRO Native Instruments kindly sent me a copy of the new Guitar Rig 6 software so that I could review it and give you my first impressions. A little background on my experience with the software and usage: I’ve been using Guitar Rig since its very first iteration, and for a number of years, it was my go to virtual guitar setup in my DAW. I’m a Mac/Logic Pro user predominantly and so I always use programs like Guitar Rig within my DAW, although you can also use them as standalone. At one point, I even went out and got myself a Rig Kontroller pedal and ran my virtual guitar rig via that. First Impressions If you have never used Guitar Rig then you will probably enjoy its ultra-clean user interface. I find it very well laid out and simple to navigate. Guitar Rig 6 has taken this further and it looks even more friendly than before. Essentially, you choose your factory presets and virtual components from the column on the left-hand side of the main window. Then your main presets are built up with ‘studio rack’ like modules, which contain everything from your tuner, virtual amps, cabinets, and effects. Presets, Navigation and Curation I would suggest new users start with one of the curated factory presets, for which Native Instruments has brought in players like Vernon Reid and Pete…

Super 8 I love this synth. It’s one of the best things to come out of Native Instruments in ages in my humble opinion. It’s simple, fat, engaging, animated, full of warmth, drive instantly usable sounds. There are many software synths with more features or impressive innovations but what does it for me is that it’s immediately accessible and delivers on exactly what I imagine a vintage polysynth should sound like. It’s there, it works, it sounds brilliant and I’m not boggled by the interface. Now it’s even better because they’ve freed it from the complexities of the Reaktor interface and you can use it as a synth all by itself. Not that Reaktor is particularly overwhelming when it comes to running instruments but having Super 8 available directly in your plug-in browser gives it a standing as a synthesizer worth its own space. Native Instruments Super 8 Super 8 is a VST3 plug-in and exists alongside the Reaktor version. It has had a bit of facelift to make it look better on hi-res screens. They’ve added 200 new presets although it won’t pickup any of the presets you made with the previous version which is a shame but I guess some things have to be broken in the move out of the Reaktor environment. It’s a free update to current owners of Super 8 or you can buy it for £89. More information Native Instruments website. More from Native Instruments.

Tone Empire Model 5000: British-American style VCA compressor plug-in https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/05/tone-empire-model-5000-british-american-style-vca-compressor-plug-in/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=tone-empire-model-5000-british-american-style-vca-compressor-plug-in https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/05/tone-empire-model-5000-british-american-style-vca-compressor-plug-in/#respond Mon, 05 Oct 2020 08:19:36 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=18664 How does a hybrid British-American VCA compressor sound? On paper, quite promising! Developer Tone Empire has made a practical showcase for this concept with the Model 5000. This “heavyweight” VCA compressor is inspired by both a famous API comp and a classic British console comp. It should sound great on drums, the mix bus, and be useful for mastering. The character goes from subtle dynamic control to extra punchy. Tone Empire Model 5000 Basically, Tone Empire borrowed the compressor ratio, attack, and release time characteristics from the British unit, and added the punch and slam of the American one to create the Model 5000. Of note, says the developer, is the punchy low-end side chain compression, which adds weight and heft to your audio in a musically pleasing way. The exact modeled units are not mentioned, but judging by the sound, this is likely an SSL/API-style hybrid. The plug-in includes a TransX in/out transformer emulation, which adds analog solid state-style saturation to the tone, with the amount of drive controlled by the input gain. This compressor likes to be pushed hard, which is why Tone Empire added up to 8x oversampling for improved frequency response and peak detection. Tone Empire Model 5000 Price and availability Tone Empire Model 5000 is available in VST3, AU, and AAX 64-bit formats for Windows and macOS computers. A 15-day trial version is also available. The introductory price is a fair USD 49, down from USD 99. The authorization is a simple process that’s free of hoops and dongles. Overall, this is an interesting, modern take on the classic VCA-style compression. The Model 5000 sounds like an utter workhorse for bass-heavy music. Try the free…

iZotope Nectar 3 Plus brings Vocal Unmasking and quicker pitch correction https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/04/izotope-nectar-3-plus-brings-vocal-unmasking-and-quicker-pitch-correction/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=izotope-nectar-3-plus-brings-vocal-unmasking-and-quicker-pitch-correction https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/04/izotope-nectar-3-plus-brings-vocal-unmasking-and-quicker-pitch-correction/#respond Sun, 04 Oct 2020 12:54:14 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=18658 Nectar 3 is a powerful vocal processing package and my go-to treatment for cleaning up voice recordings. That is, unless I’m feeling analog and want to chain up any of the virtual mix rack / gear emulation plug-ins I own. But as an all-out digital channel strip, Nectar 3 is superb. That’s why I’m glad to see it updated with new features and improvements in the form of Nectar 3 Plus. iZotope Nectar 3 Plus First off, iZotope has introduced Unmasking to Nectar’s automated Vocal Assistant. Unmask works pretty much the same as in Neutron 3. It uses iZotope’s inter plug-in communication protocol to analyze the rest of your tracks (which have Relay or other iZotope production plug-ins on them). Then, it applies dynamic and frequency processing to bring your vocals up and clear in the mix. Turn on the Dynamic setting, and this happens only while vocal tracks are playing. This is a typically clever iZotope feature that can potentially save hours of drawing automation curves. The unmasking process is visualized in the EQ window and the amount of processing applied can be adjusted from a single Amount slider. The slider is available per-track for targeted processing. Good stuff! Nectar 3 Plus’ vocal unmasking in action. Additionally, the Pitch module has been improved with the addition of a Learn button. The engine automatically detects your vocal register and offers three related keys to set up your pitch correction. Of course, you can still set the key manually and transpose your audio in steps. I think the Pitch module is very useful and quick to operate, now even more so with the Learn button. I’ve grown into the habit of…

IK Multimedia Neil Peart Drums As the heart and soul of progressive pioneers Rush, Neil Peart is widely regarded as one of the best drummers to ever play the instrument. This set for Sample Tank includes 2,000 samples, 800 grooves, and 17 full songs across 2GB of total content. Everything was captured by Rush producer Nick Rasculinecz on the very same kit that was used on the band’s Snakes and Arrows album and tour. Each drum has eight velocities, and each individual kit piece can be broken out and processed without affecting other elements of the kit. While the songs come at pre-determined tempos, Sample Tank’s STRETCH engine makes it seamless to morph them to your own needs without affecting tone or pitch. Put one of the best drummers of all time into your stack for just $79.

Slate Audio VSX: innovative monitoring system promises accurate mixing anywhere https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/02/slate-audio-vsx-innovative-monitoring-system-promises-accurate-mixing-anywhere/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=slate-audio-vsx-innovative-monitoring-system-promises-accurate-mixing-anywhere https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/02/slate-audio-vsx-innovative-monitoring-system-promises-accurate-mixing-anywhere/#respond Fri, 02 Oct 2020 06:54:25 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=18638 True to form, Slate Audio sees a problem and proposes a solution. In the case of VSX, the firm’s new product, the problem is monitoring consistency when mixing. Too often home studio mixes sound great in the bedroom, but may fall apart on consumer headphones and speakers, the car stereo, you know – anywhere music is actually consumed. The solution, Slate thinks, is to simulate a bunch of recording spaces and listening situations, with the software tied to a bespoke pair of reference headphones. It’s not a new idea, but it’s likely the most elaborate execution of the concept thus far. Slate Audio VSX Right off the bat, VSX lands a hat trick with control room simulations of the coveted NRG Studio (best metal guitar tones I ever heard!), the Archon Studio, and engineer Howie Weinberg’s mastering space. The rest of the simulations are more general purpose – luxury SUV, electric car, LA nightclub, boombox, and a bunch of popular consumer/studio headphones. So a rather useful collection of monitor spaces – it’s probably the closest I’ll ever get to hearing my mix in a Tesla! VSX Headphones The VSX headphones showcase high-end technology with a closed back design, beryllium drivers, patent-pending Acoustic Ported Subsonic tech. and tangle-free cable with gold-plated connectors. The APS tech works by somehow harnessing air pressure to boost the very low end of the spectrum. The goal is to deliver a realistic simulation of clubs and cars’ bass-heavy listening experience. Furthermore, the VS headphones’ frequency response is almost pancake-flat, so I expect these to sound very detailed and brutally honest (in Slate’s words). A panacea for mixing? Likely not. As realistic as VSX may sound, the…

Deal: Save 60% on Softube Tape for EUR 39! https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/01/deal-save-60-on-softube-tape-for-eur-39/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=deal-save-60-on-softube-tape-for-eur-39 https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/10/01/deal-save-60-on-softube-tape-for-eur-39/#respond Thu, 01 Oct 2020 12:49:11 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=18628 Softube plug-ins tend to be notably pricey, even on sale. From time to time, though, the chance to snag a Softube plug-in for less does appear. Such is the case with Tape, the Swedish developer’s snazzy tape machine emulation. Our friends at Plugin Boutique are selling it for just EUR 39, which amounts to a 60% discount! Reel to reel Tape emulates three different tape machines for that added silk, warmth and compression you get from analog tape. Type A is a Swiss high-end tape machine with a precision sound, Type B is richer in color, and Type C is distinctly vintage. The plug-in is beautiful and also quite simple to use. Choose the type of tape machine and twist the Amount knob to taste. You can also grab onto the presets, done by industry pros like Joe Chiccarelli and Howard Willing. There’s the possibility to dig in deeper, if you wish. There are tape speed settings, as well as speed stability, crosstalk, and other tweakables. Also of note is that PreSonus Studio one users are treated to simulated crosstalk between channels with Tape inserted, along with Tape Multitrack control from a single interface. Nice! As with any tape machine emulation, softening of the transients is to be expected. So take critical care when inserting Tape or any other plug-in on your mix bus, especially if mixing heavy music. Price and specifications Tape runs on 64-bit Mac OS X 10.12 or later / Windows 7 or later in VST, VST3, AU, and AAX formats. An iLok account (free) or USB dongle (v2 and up) is required for authorization. The price from Plugin Boutique is EUR 39 (affiliate link). More information…

SynthFest UK SynthFest is usually held at the Sheffield Octagon Centre for a day in October and pulls in manufacturers, modular makers, retail stores and of course loads of synthesizer enthusiasts. They usually also run a series of seminars and and performances throughout the day. It’s an awesome day of synthiness and is certainly an annual pilgrimage for me. This year, of course, it can’t be done. However, don’t despair, Sound On Sound (the people behind SynthFest) has decided to throw something together online to give us a taste of what it might have been to go along. SFUK will set itself up as a portal for a kind of self-service event. The idea is that manufacturers and content makers can send in demonstrations, articles and videos about their latest releases and it will all be available to watch over the weekend. Retailers are invited to offer up some special deals and promotions for the event. They also hope that the synth community will generate some Fringe Events in terms of performances, discussions and live streams to tie in with SynthFest and get featured on the site. If you want to get involved in any capacity then you need to get in touch by the 1st October. The event is completely free because it’s essentially a hub for other people’s content. Hopefully, if manufacturers and the community jumps on board then it could be a great weekend of new and interesting products to see and content to enjoy in one convenient place.…

Combine dozens of filter types with a bunch of modulators for all sorts of swirling, rhythmic filtering effects. UVI Shade UVI calls Shade a “Swiss Army knife filtering tool”, and looking at the plug-in’s features, I think they may be onto something. If you’re into creative, rhythmic filtering and modulation, you definitely need to check this one out. But let’s take it from the beginning. Shade offers a total of 35 filter shapes. You can choose from various high pass, low pass, shelving, peak and notch filters with different options like resonant, multi-resonant and EQ-ing. There’s also a bunch of comb filters and phasers for more experimental stuff. This alone makes Shade a very capable filter and EQ plug-in. Shade offers a total of 35 filter types Modulate any parameter But the modulation engine is where the fun really starts. There are nine modulators, including XY, Macro, Spread, Random, LFO, Envelope, Figure (an XY LFO), Multi-step Envelope Generator, and Follower. You can map these to any parameter by dragging and dropping. In addition, modulators can be routed and cross-modulated in a couple of different ways. It doesn’t take a scientist to figure out that this opens the door to pretty much any kind of rhythmic, modulated filtering you can imagine. Shade can also react to the input signal and/or controllers in a number of ways. The Follower modulator can follow the input, an external sidechain signal or the spectral band of individual filters. By using the Follower, any parameter in Shade can react to the dynamics of the input signal, which makes the plug-in…

Here’s jParaComp, GON and Fuzz Ball. Want more free plug-ins? Our huge archives will keep you happy for days! jHudStudio jParaComp Somehow we managed to miss this free stereo compressor when it came out last year. jParaComp from jHudStudio offers independent controls for each channel, which can be linked on a per-control basis. For example, you can link the thresholds and keep the attack and release times separate. Or link the compressor controls, but use different clip drive settings for each channel for stereo effects. A solid free compressor with many useful and creative options. jParaComp is available for Windows 7 or higher and macOS 10.7 or higher in VST, VST3 and AUformats. Get jParaComp here MAAT GON MAAT is best known for its extremely deep, but expensive equalizer plug-ins like thEQorange and thEQblue. But their latest plug-in GON is completely free. Monitoring the phase relation between the left and right channels is crucial in mixing and mastering, and this free goniometer gets the job done with a very clean GUI and easy-to-use features. MAAT says that it’s also light on your CPU, which is great if you can’t afford to waste CPU power on metering. GON is available for Windows 7 or higher (32/64) bit and macOS 10.8 or higher (64 bit) in AU, VST, VST3 and AAX formats.

BreakTweaker Expanded plus four expansion packs of over 1000 additional samples, synthesizer sounds, grooves and presets sees a mammoth 95% discount! And you can have two freebies served alongside it – iZotope Trash 2 and Carbon. Hurry up, though, because the offer is time-limited. iZotope BreakTweaker Expanded Plug-in on Sale Like Stutter Edit, BreakTweaker Expanded was created in a collaboration between iZotope and producer BT. The instrument itself is a kind of sample shredder, splicer and rhythm generator. The plug-in generates sounds from samples. At its heart lies a versatile sequencer for all plug-in parameters. With it, you can create individual patterns and chain them into complete songs. So this is a real drum machine with modern functionality. Sample loops are sliced into individual pieces and then manipulated to create new grooves. The extended drum design function is really cool. Here, you can create your own drum sounds out of two wavetable oscillators, just like a synthesizer. The audio is then ran through an effects section, which includes distortion, mangling and morphing (modulation with envelopes and LFOs), as well as filters and other kinds of effects processors. Price and availability The whole package plus four extensions is available until the end of September 2020 at an absolutely delicious price. You can get iZotope BreakTweaker Expanded here at Plugin Boutique (affiliate) for EUR 9.66! In addition, you will receive the iZotope Trash 2 & UJAM Carbon Bundle as a free gift!

And that by almost 70 percent off the original price! With this bundle of different effects, you can get very interesting multi-FX chains going. There really is something here for everyone and for every audio and instrument track. And, of course, in the renowned high quality that we are used to from the developer. Soundtoys Effects Rack Plug-in Deal Soundtoys Effects Rack is a “slimmed-down” bundle version of the complete Soundtoys 5 effects package. It contains 14 effect modules from the large version (which numbers 21 effects). The package includes the following effects: Crystallizer Decapitator Devil Loc EchoBoy EchoBoy Jr. FilterFreak FilterFreak 2 MicroShift PanMan PhaseMistress PrimalTap radiator You-Q Tremolator That’s not all there is to it, though. There are hundreds of presets to quickly bring the Soundtoys magic into your DAW. Here, the individual effect modules are perfectly integrated, connected in series and optimally adjusted. Of course, you can change all parameters and the working order manually to set it according to your wishes. Created chains can also be saved as presets in the browser. The rack itself has a “master controller ” section for this purpose. There, you can set the tempo, gain, mix (dry / wet) and other parameters. There is one disadvantage, compared to the Soundtoys 5 bundle: you cannot use the individual effects separately into your DAW effects chain. Here, you are always dependent on the complete effects rack. As a workaround, you can still open multiple racks on different tracks which include a single effect. Overall, this is a really good deal and a lot of Soundtoys for…

Sure, bring it on! GBSoundlab hears our wishes and presents EasyMix. This is a super industrial-looking channel strip plug-in that offers a set of controls to edit individual audio tracks, buses and entire mixes. Richer harmonics, more clarity and presence – promises the Spanish manufacturer, who is also giving away a free plug-in. GBSoundlab EasyMix The developer has been involved in music production since the 1990s and has now incorporated all that know-how into this plug-in. EasyMix is ​​a virtual channel strip with a number of rotary controls. First, the plug-in addresses crucial frequency ranges, some of which are referred to here with metaphors. ‘Sound’ and ‘Face’ take care of the midrange and act like one-knob effects that you can use to control several parameters. You will also find a tune control that goes from 400 to 600 Hz, along with controls for resonance and ‘Cotton’. Isn’t it nice when things are named clearly? The LOWs department is dedicated to bass frequencies, featuring two controls that emphasize or reduce different frequencies. Two sliders decide whether the Q factor is set to be narrow or broadband. Both controls take on a slightly different frequency range, but you can still edit the same ranges. For example, a reduction with a narrow quality factor and a simultaneous increase with a broad Q value is possible. Loving the Pultec homage! ‘Air’ lets you tweak the treble frequencies with six sliders and two knobs (Silk and Gain). If you turn it up here, the sound will be more compressed – but the result should always sound musical. The plug-in emulates tube hardware, but the manufacturer…

Under conditions as strict as possible, standardized recordings of various situations were made with the microphones and the volumes were precisely adjusted to match one another. If you want to see detailed information about a microphone’s frequency response, you can overlay and compare graphs. Furthermore, ATK2.0 lets you see the microphones from all angles. There are over 200 unboxing videos on the website to complete the immersion. With a quick change between the different models, you can immediately hear the sound differences of the microphones.

Here’s The Seductress, QRange and Vocal King. If you can’t get enough of free plug-ins, check out our huge archives! Planet Botch The Seductress The Seductress is a complete Hammond Organ emulation in a free plug-in. According to the developer, it grew out of the Classic H plug-in from a few years back, but it’s been significantly improved. The Seductress is fully synthesized (not sample-based) and models the intricacies of the famous tonewheel organ in great detail. You get two manuals with their own drawbar sets, the classic chorus/vibrato and percussion, and even a rotary speaker emulation and reverb. The Seductress is a VST plug-in for Windows. Get seduced here LKJB QRange QRange is a free linear-phase equalizer designed for mastering and processing multi-mic recordings. The plug-in was designed by the same developer who created the analog-style Luftikus EQ. Contrary to Luftikus, QRange is designed to be completely transparent. It offers 12 bands, each of which can be used as a peak, shelf or cut filter. Each band also has a selection of routing modes (stereo, left, right, mid or side). There’s also a pre or post spectrum analyzer so you can see what’s going on. QRange is available for Windows 7 or higher and macOS 10.7 or higher in VST, VST3 and AU formats. Get QRange here JHudStudio Vocal King Vocal King is a dynamics plug-in designed to help vocals and instruments sit better in the mix. The plug-in offers two single-knob compressors (Pres Comp and Final Comp). In between the two, you can…

United Plugins Transmutator lets you get creative with crossfades https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/09/09/united-plugins-transmutator-lets-you-get-creative-with-crossfades/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=united-plugins-transmutator-lets-you-get-creative-with-crossfades https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/09/09/united-plugins-transmutator-lets-you-get-creative-with-crossfades/#respond Wed, 09 Sep 2020 19:34:28 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=18404 United Plugins and JMG Sound have released Transmutator. The plug-in lets you crossfade between two audio signals in a variety of ways. Do you need a plug-in just for crossfades? Check out the creative possibilities, and you may well find that you do. United Plugins Transmutator A plug-in that does nothing but crossfades may seem like a small utility not worth mentioning. But United Plugins and JMG Sound have packed 16 different crossfade modes into Transmutator, which open up a wide range of creative possibilities. Who knew that you could fade from one audio file or sample to another in so many different ways? In addition to regular crossfades, the 16 modes include things like mid/side or multi-band crossfading, dynamics, filtering, spectral freezing/blurring, pitch/frequency shifting, and more. There’s also an invert switch that changes the behavior of the modes. United Plugins says that Transmutator lets you blend two audio signals in many creative ways, which is something that’ll appeal to electronic producers and DJs alike. They also suggest using the plug-in to create interesting audio transitions for video editing. To crossfade between two audio signals, you need to insert Transmutator in one channel and then route the second channel to it through the sidechain input. In addition to the big crossfade knob in the center, the plug-in offers input level controls for both channels, an output trim control and a dry/wet mix slider. Turning something like the humble crossfade into an area for creative experimentation is an intriguing idea. At the low introductory price, Transmutator seems like a solid addition to any plug-in folder. Price and compatibility United Plugins Transmutator is now available from Plugin Boutique* for USD 22 /…

Newfangled Audio Generate: Chaos unleashed in Buchla inspired animated synthesizer https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/09/09/newfangled-audio-generate-chaos-unleashed-in-buchla-inspired-animated-synthesizer/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=newfangled-audio-generate-chaos-unleashed-in-buchla-inspired-animated-synthesizer https://ingovogelmann.net/2020/09/09/newfangled-audio-generate-chaos-unleashed-in-buchla-inspired-animated-synthesizer/#respond Wed, 09 Sep 2020 10:44:17 +0000 https://ingovogelmann.net/?p=18397 You tried a bit of free chaos with Pendulate but now embrace the animated unpredictability of 5 types of chaotic oscillator in the fully fleshed out Generate by Newfangled Audio. Generate Like an evil genius, Newfangled Audio whets your appetite with the fascinating machinations of Pendulate for free only to hit you with so much more of that special chaotic sauce with 5 times the oscillators in Generate. You’re going to have to have it. Along with the Double Pendulum oscillator found in Pendulate we now have Vortex, Pulsar, Discharge and Turbine. Each one spews out chaotic oscillations in different flavours which are beautifully animated in the background of the GUI. Everything about Generate is different and slightly disorientating. The squareness of the knobs, or are they sliders? The waveforms sitting behind the controls upsetting the order of the layout and the strands of modulation making the place look untidy. It’s unruly and uncouth and completely mesmerising – love it! Newfangled Audio Generate Once you’ve shaped, animated and pumped chaos into your waveform you can then thread it through the Wavefolder section modelled on the Buchla 259 Complex Waveform Generator. Or for something more wild switch to the Fractal or Animated Equation setting. From there the LowPassGate based o the Buchla 292 adds controls for Poles and Resonance. The bottom half is devoted to effects and modulation. You can choose from a pair of envelopes, two LFOs, Sample&Hold and a Sequence-based modulator and drag them onto the parameter you want to control in the top half. All of them have multiple outputs so things can quickly get moving as the square knobs start to glow in response to their modulators.…
