Wouter Geukens rilasca Harvest Produce Report

Polybius aka Wouter Geukens ha rilasciato Harvest Produce Report, una collezione gratuita di patches per  Zebra, il software synthesizer by u-he.

150 Patches, modeled after memories that may or may not have taken place. An outlet to the sounds that are haunting the back of my mind. Forgotten dreams and nightmares, recalled by turning knobs on this wonderful Zebra synthesizer.

Several months ago, I was updating the “Switched On” patch library. Some patches got reworked, reflecting newly acquired sound design tricks. Whilst other patches got binned, due to being not compatible to the overal tone of sound of the patch library. After a while, a theme began seeping through, and so little was left of the old patchbank that i decided to rename my work to “Harvest Produce Report”.

TriTone Digital rilascia ClassicTone-560

TriTone Digital ha rilasciato ClassicTone-560, a una fedele emulazione di uno dei migliori EQ grafici mai creati.

These graphic EQs are found in consoles and lunch boxes around the world and are prized for their punchiness and girth. This is an incredible EQ, and one could surely mix an album with this powerful tool alone. The 10 bands, featuring proportional Q, are great for scupting guitar or drums sounds. The mids are especially punchy and do wonders on snare, vocals, piano etc….

  • 10 bands: 31 Hz, 63 Hz, 125 Hz, 250 Hz, 500 Hz, 1 kHz, 2 kHz, 4 kHz, 8 kHz and 16 kHz. All bands are capable of 12 dB of boost or cut.
  • This EQ has been modeled exactly. 0 dB Gain settings still provide a slight color from the electronic rich signal path.
  • Each band features ‘proportional Q’, meaning that the Q will narrow along the boost. Small boost will have wide Q, while big boost will have a tighter/narrower Q.
  • Output Gain adjusts the output gain between -12 db and +12 dB.

ClassicTone-560 per Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) è in vendita al prezzo lancio di 99 EUR (prezzo regolare 129 EUR). Al momento è compresa anche una copia gratuita di RecallTone (valore 29 EUR). L'upgrade dalla versione Pluggo costa 19 EUR.

Loopmasters rilascia House Percussion Loops

Loopmasters ha rilasciato House Percussion Loops, una sample library con 750+ MB di suoni e loops di percussioni.

112dB rilascia Big Blue Compressor

112dB ha rilasciato Big Blue Compressor, un tube-modeling compressor (compressore valvolare) plug in per Windows e Mac.

The Big Blue Compressor is a modern compressor with vintage qualities. Although it can sound transparent whenever necessary, it was designed to give character and warmth to your sound.

Modern features from the digital world, including a Look Ahead function, are paired with qualities from the analog world, such as the saturation of transients that is typical of tube compressors. Far more than a tool to compress the dynamic range of sound, the Big Blue Compressor gives you unprecedented control over the character of the compression algorithm and the esthetics of the output sound. This enables you to vary from very clean and smooth results to dramatic reshaping of the sound transients.

  • Tube-compressor-style dynamic saturation.
  • Separate preamp section for extra overdrive.
  • Variable-knee limiting with proprietary tube modeling.
  • Dry/wet control for parallel compression.
  • Stereo imaging: stereo narrowing or widening, mid/side mode.
  • Auto makeup gain, in addition to user-adjustable makeup gain.
  • Adjustable look ahead from 0 to 5 ms.
  • Peak/RMS compression mode.
  • Sidechain monitor option.
  • User-adjustable latency from 0.01 to 5 ms (6 to 440 samples @ 44.1kHz).
  • Low- and high-pass filters on input and side chain with unique scaling, allowing for high-precision adjustments at critical frequencies.

Big Blue Compressor (VST/AU/RTAS/AS) è in vendita al prezzo lancio di 99 EUR fino al 15 agosto 2012 (prezzo regolare 149 EUR)

Samplephonics rilascia Conga & Tumba Loops

Samplephonics rilascia Conga & Tumba Loops, il secondo titolo della serie della "Utility series".

Conga and Tumba Loops is possibly the most useful and versatile sample pack you will ever own. Expertly played by our main percussion man Gary Hammond, all loops and samples are presented separately as a close mic’d stereo file and a room mic stereo file enabling you to easily blend between the two for ultimate flexibility and control over the final sound.

The Tumba or Tumbadora as it is often known is the largest and deepest sounding drum, and the Conga slightly smaller and higher pitched. They originated from Africa but have been adopted by a number of different cultures and musical styles.

We spent a lot of time researching the drums, their history and how they are used in music today in order to create a unique sample pack that can stand the test of time.

  • 192 MB Conga and Tumba loops in 24 Bit Wav, Apple Loops, and Rex2 formats.
  • The loops and samples are mapped out over 4 tempos of 110 BPM, 120 BPM, 128 BPM and 140 BPM in order to fit in with many contemporary musical styles.
  • All Loops contain a close mic and room mic version, all tempo categories contain main loops and fills/solos.

Conga & Tumba Loops è in vendita a £9.70 GBP.

Tone2 Audiosoftware rilascia Saurus Analog Synthesizer

Tone2 Audiosoftware annuncia il rilascio di Saurus Analog Synthesizer, un virtual synth per Windows e Mac.

Saurus takes the high regarded analog sound from the past into the unlimited digital realm, fusing them together with a user interface that invites to tweak and a multitude of unique sound sculpting tools exclusive to Saurus. All without placing heavy demands on your CPU or budget.
Saurus promises true analog sound with state of art functionality

It has been the aim of developers the world over to bring the best “Virtual Analog” synths possible to re-create the sound of classic hardware.

However, unlike many competitors who sell ‘Virtual Analog Synthesizers’ which are at best mere approximations of what happens in the real world, we set out to create not just another synthesizer with character, but one that truly represents the sound of analog hardware. We carefully measured and modeled the circuits of many classic performance synthesizers, even including single capacitors and resistors to provide an extremely accurate analog model, faithfully capturing the spirit and character of these old machines.

Universal Audio rilascia 1176 Classic Limiter Collection

Universal Audio ha rilasciato 1176 Classic Limiter Collection per i possessori di UAD-2 e della nuova interfaccia audio Apollo.
Questa nuova collezione ci propone l'emulazione di 3 diversi tipi di unità hardware 1176, con caratteristiche mirate a specifici interventi.

“While our original 1176LN plug-in is still the closest software emulation of the original hardware available, we’ve learned a lot in the ten years since its release. That knowledge has produced the 1176 Collection,” says Matt Ward, President of Universal Audio. “The results are simply stunning, and we’re thrilled to be able to offer this to our UAD-2 customers.”

The 1176 Limiter Plug-In Collection provides three distinct 1176 revisions, representing over 40 years of design iterations. The Rev A “Bluestripe” represents the original Putnam FET limiter design, complete with its higher distortion and unique FET gain amplifier characteristics. The Rev E “Blackface” covers the early 70’s / Brad Plunkett “LN” (Low Noise) era of the 1176 circuit lineage, with a more linear compression response, transistor gain amplification, and a change to the program dependency. The 1176AE emulates UA’s rare 1176 40th Anniversary Edition, complete with exclusive “hot-rod” mods — including its lower 2:1 compression ratio and a fixed “super slow” 10ms attack mode.

Also included in the 1176 Classic Limiter Plug-In Collection are handcrafted presets from some legendary 1176 enthusiasts: Ed Cherney (Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt), Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes, The Killers), Carl Glanville (U2), David Isaac (Marcus Miller, Luther Vandross), Andy Johns (Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones), Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Norah Jones), Hugo Nicolson (Radiohead, Björk), Vance Powell (The Dead Weather, The Raconteurs), and Andrew Scheps (Adele, Red Hot Chili Peppers).

Zynaptiq rilascia Unveil, de-reverbaration plugin

Zynaptiq ha rilasciato Unveil, un real-time de-reverberation e signal focusing plug-in, per ora solo per Mac OS X nel formato AudioUnits (AU).

Rimuovere il riverbero da un segnale audio già processato è un'impresa davvero ardua: ci aveva già provato SPL con il suo De-verb con risultati discreti, ma lungi dal restituirci un segnale dry.

Zynaptiq con Unveil proverà a colmare questa lacuna con un approccio innovativo: a differenza degli altri software di de-riverbarazione Unveil "ascolta" (analizza) il segnale audio da processare distinguendo le zone dove il riverbero è maggiore rispetto e quelle dove il segnale è meno riverberato o dry.  Dalle parole degli sviluppatori si evince un fiducioso ottimismo, e noi siamo altrettanto fiduciosi!
