Turnado is a revolutionary multi-effect tool, crafted especially for massive real-time audio manipulation. It combines unique and dynamic effects with the most intuitive and immediate control you can imagine. Just turn it on and crank it up.
In the studio, simply dial in your effect from a super-sweet selection of 24 pro-quality algorithms, then mash up your audio content with minimum fuss, quickly adding dynamic variation to your arrangements. Take it to the stage and unleash Turnado’s true power. With instant access to eight effects and immediate control over key parameters, Turnado is guaranteed to cause devastation on the dance floor, shredding beats and crunking breaks to insane proportions.
The idea is simple:
Turn a knob and the effect is on.
Turn the knob further to adjust effect parameters and apply modulations.
Turn the knob down and the effect is off.
With its instantaneous, one-knob, multi-parameter modulation features, Turnado will lay waste to the audio landscape. Giving you the power to crunch, chop, twist, mash and elevate your music to new levels, Turnado will have you creating wicked new sounds that will blow any crowd away.
Unlocking the power of your MIDI controller each effect requires only one knob to control it. Underneath this simplicity lies a matrix of effect parameters and modulation engines, all controlled by the main knob. This control matrix provides serious depth to the plugin and gives you the ability to create original and truly unique effect programs.
If the power of one-knob action still doesn’t rock your boat, the awesome “Dictator” mode will sink your battleship. It allows you to animate all the main knobs and run that animation with just one fader. That’s one fader, controlling up to 8 different effects, with potentially hundreds of parameter changes!
Turnado’s primary focus is on beat manipulation, so you will find lots of loopers, slicers and grain tools in the rack. Alongside these beat-mashing effects are an arsenal of distortions and filters as well as first-class delays and reverbs. With extensive modulation possibilities each effect can produce millions of unbelievable variations that can be morphed and twisted into something new every time you tweak those knobs.
Turnado will inspire you again and again, delivering completely new variations of your original sounds and grooves every time, so what are you waiting for…turn it on.
Turnado comes for Mac/PC as Standalone application and VST/AU/RTAS/AAX plugin.
Turnado takes realtime audio manipulation to the next level.
Just assign effects to knobs and crank them up! Lots of new
granulizing, freezing, filtering, slicing, looping and scratching effects
have been developed to make Turnado the best effect you ever had!

Sinevibes has announced Torsion, its new monophonic Audio Unit instrument plugin. They tell us that Torsion is built upon a unique combination of multiple synthesis technologies and modulation sources, wrapped into an intuitive interface which makes working with it as fun as playing a game. Sinevibes believes that it has a very distinctive, original sound character – and is ready to push your musical creativity in a fresh new direction. Here’s the details in Sinevibes’ own words…
At first glance, Torsion’s sound structure is similar to a traditional subtractive synthesiser – three oscillators going into a low-pass filter and into an amplifier – and it’s certainly as easy to use. But Torsion’s oscillators are completely different: they produce simple additive waves based on just a few partials, which are then enriched with lots of new spectral content using a technique called waveshape modelling (which literally “curls” the wave in real time). To further spice the sound up, there is a ring modulator and an audio-range oscillator for filter FM.
Torsion features as many as four separate LFO generators – one for each oscillator and one for the filter and output amplifier. In addition to precise synchronisation, each LFO cycle can be self-randomised, which makes the modulation rhythmical yet non-repetitive. There are also two AHDSR envelope generators, as well as a two-dimensional chaos oscillator.
The interface of Torsion is designed with high-contrast, colour coded elements, which lets you operate the instrument intuitively in just a few minutes. It also includes graphic representations for every building block – oscillator waves, LFO phases, envelope shapes and filter spectrum all change as you modify them, making sound design with Torsion a truly engaging, fun process.
• Three oscillators each with four basic additive waveforms and four waveshape models.
• -24 dB/octave resonant low-pass filter.
• -12 dB/octave high-pass filter.
• Ring modulator.
• Modulation oscillator for low-pass filter FM.
• Four tempo-synchronised LFO generators with four waveforms and per-cycle randomisation.
• Two AHDSR envelope generators.
• Two-dimensional chaos modulation generator based on Lorenz attractor.
Pricing and Availability:
Torsion is immediately available as an Audio Unit plugin for OS X 10.6 or later (32/64 bit Intel), and costs $49.
PixiVisor is a revolutionary tool for audio-visual experiments. Simple, fun, cross-platform.
More info: http://warmplace.ru/soft/pixivisor
It consists of two parts: Transmitter and Receiver.
Transmitter converts the video (static 64×64 image or 10FPS animation) to the sound, pixel by pixel (progressive scan). So you can listen the sound of your image. But the main function of the Transmitter is to transmit the signal to the receiving devices.
Receiver converts the sound (from microphone or Line-in input) back to the video. You can set the color palette for this video, and record it to animated GIF file.
- file formats supported by Transmitter: JPEG, PNG, GIF (static and animated);
- real-time video export to animated GIF;
- 64 predefined color palettes;
- iOS: iTunes File Sharing;
- iOS: Wi-Fi Export/Import (in the File menu of the Transmitter);
- more functions in the next PixiVisor updates…
Examples of use:
- wireless Lo-Fi video transmission over audio;
- video signal transmission through audio cable; you can then modify that signal by some mixers or audio FX processors;
- sound visualization;
- save any sound to animated GIF;
- hide some images and animation in your music;
- searching for hidden messages in the ambient noise; EVP;
- something else; reveal it first!

Here’s the background info:
World’s first Cloud Speaker.
Today, almost all music has moved to the cloud. We think this is great evolution. Sadly, the audio equipment needed to listen to music in the cloud hasn’t really caught up with this transition. We investigated the market closely, but we couldn’t find one system that delivered both great sound and a great user experience. So we had to build it ourselves. We have created a device that is built from the ground up especially for enjoying music in the cloud. We call this device Cloud Speaker.
Everything you need is Built-In.
Inside the OD-11 you’ll find an integrated amplifier that delivers 100W. Combine this with integrated WiFi and a sound processor and you have everything you need to enjoy cloud music. To make the user experience even greater we designed an amazingly simple volume remote with wireless communication built around the latest Bluetooth 4 Low Energy chip that allows the remote to run for years on a single button cell battery. We also added a magnet on the back of the remote so you can stick it to anything from your fridge to the front of your OD-11.
Reintroducing good sound.
The original Carlsson OD-11 was introduced in 1974. Created by Stig Carlsson, the Swedish engineer that challenged the audio industry in the 60s and 70s by designing and refining his loudspeaker for real living rooms, as opposed to the common practice of developing speakers in perfectly damped rooms. Oddly, that contradiction is the same today. At introduction the OD-11 was the most affordable HiFi speaker of its time. The Carlssons loudspeakers sold over 100.000 pairs just in Sweden and was instantly established as icons of it’s time.
The original Carlsson speaker.
Teenage Engineering has worked closely with the Stig Carlsson Foundation to build on the tradition of Stig Carlssons work and his life long mission for great natural sound. The result of this is OD-11. Carefully and meticulosly re-engineered by Teenage Engineering. Welcome to a great cloud music experience.
Jordan Rudess explores Audiobus, details below:
AudioBus in Action on the iPad. Using my own Geo Synthesizer to run virtual midi into ThumbJam (which is the sound source!) and is in the background using the new and very cool Audiobus, which is routing the signal thru JamUp Pro and finally the DAW app which is ready to record if I want to! The iOS music world is reaching new heights people!
Sebastian uses Loopy HD to loop Sunrizer and FunkBox being filtered by NLog. Audiobus is a communications channel for sending live audio, like the audible output of a synthesizer app, or the output of a guitar amp effects app, for example.
