DMG Audio rilascia PitchFunk, modulation plug-in


DMG Audio ha rilasciato PitchFunk, un modulation multi fx plug-in per Windows e Mac.

This all started as a toy project – I was ill, so doing some research. I’ve always been interested in the history of pitch shifters and was researching into what it was that made the classic units so special. I built a little toy which sounded great. And then, because it seemed necessary, we added feedback. And things got a little more weird. So we added a delay, and it got weirder still. And then a filter, and then variable topologies, a massive modulation section, the moveable gainstage, MS and LR independent processing, and a host of other little things that will entertain and amuse. Suddenly the toy had grown into something monstrous. It was making sounds we couldn’t describe any more. So we’re doing the obvious, and offering it to the world. What’s the worst that can happen?

Eventide rilascia Blackhole native reverb


Eventide ha rilasciato Blackhole, un native reverb plug-in per Windows e Mac.

Blackhole is a massive reverberator that has evolved over the years by pulling in mass quantities of time and energy (of the development persuasion, of course). In its earliest incarnation – first in the DSP4000 and later in the H8000 flagship processors – it was regarded, by some, as a secret weapon. Recently it was tuned, expanded and enhanced and then unleashed in the Eventide Space stompbox. Now, it’s available as a Native plug-in.

Blackhole may not be your first choice to simulate an enclosure on the surface of the earth but, if you’re at all interested in ‘sculpting sound’, Blackhole just might pull you in. From our vantage point, its possibilities appear to be endless but, of course, we can’t see beyond its event horizon.

Blackhole per Windows e Mac (VST/AU/AAX) è in vendita al prezzo lancio di $99 USD (prezzo di listino $199 USD). È disponibile un crossgrade per i possessori di Space stompbox al prezzo lancio di $49 USD (prezzo regolare $99 USD). Nota: Blackhole richiede iLok2.

UVI rilascia String Machines

UVI annuncia l'uscita di String Machines, un hybrid instrument creato con "l'impronta analogica" di 11 tra i più famosi string synthesizers mai costruiti.

Back in the 70′s, leading keyboard designers around the world attempted to reproduce orchestral string sounds through analog synthesis. The results were far from their original intent but were in no way failures. Used on countless cult records and engrained in our collective memory to this day – these ‘String Machines’ bore an analog soul on their own.

At UVI we are obsessed with this, having spent countless hours working on ways to capture this analog soul and present it as an accessible, expressive, fully editable digital tool. So was born String Machines – a hybrid instrument forged with the analog imprint of the 11 most musical string synthesizers ever built.

UVI has painstaking recorded thousands of samples with the very best analog and digital gear available, putting in all experience ever learned to bring you this comprehensive instrument at an unbelievable price.

Caratteristiche
  • Authentic sounds with character reproduce the analog grunge and warmth of yesteryear.
  • Instant access to tons of presets and preset layers; find sounds you love and get inspired quickly.

Arturia rilascia Wurlitzer V


Arturia annuncia il rilascio di Wurlitzer V, un high-end software recreation del piano elettrico Wurlitzer EP 200A.

Think electric piano, and many musicians still think Wurlitzer or ‘Wurly’ — one of a series of electro- mechanical stringless pianos manufactured and marketed by the US-based Rudolph Wurlitzer Company, coining the trademarked Electronic Piano phrase in the process. The 1972-launched Wurlitzer EP 200A represented Wurlitzer’s top-of-the-range, reed-based piano line throughout its impressive 10-year production lifespan; today Arturia’s Wurlitzer V faithfully resurrects that still-sought-after sound — and more besides!

Unlike traditional sampling libraries, the Wurlitzer V’s embedded physical modelling engine readily reproduces the agreeable acoustic properties of the Wurlitzer EP 200A’s musically distinctive reeds, key action, and amplification combo by ‘constructing’ played notes in real time, creating cost-effective and reliable realism in a computer-based, truly portable package fit for a 21st Century performer; moreover, maximising integral sonic flexibility to skilfully surpass its hardware namesake is also the virtual order of the day here, appealing to studio and stage users alike.

Caratteristiche
  • Physical Modeling of the classic Wurlitzer 200A Electric Piano.
  • Advanced parameters to allow in-depth control over the sound design.
  • Includes 11 classic stompbox-type modeled effects.
  • 4 Guitar Tube Amps and 1 Rotary Speaker modeling for vintage live sound.
  • Extensive MIDI mapping of pedals, effects and sound engine parameters.

Wurlitzer V è in vendita in modalità download a 99 EUR / $99 USD, oppure in versione "boxed" a 119 EUR / $129 USD.
