Checking out some new Moduls

August 22, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Checking out some new Moduls, like the 4 ms Shuffling Clock Multplier and the Synthesis Technology E-580 Delay. The synthesis technology e580 resampling mini-delay emulates the classic sounds of digital, bbd and tape-based delays with 4 parameters under voltage control. the 14hp wide euro module accepts either +-12v euro standard power or +-15v motm/frac power. using a 40mhz dsp and 24-bit codec, the e580 recreates the pitch-shift modulating of bbds with the variable bandwidth and noise floor without costly bbd ics. in tape mode, wow& flutter, tape saturation and non-linear distortion model classic tape units without the bulk and maintenance. there are 2 simultaneous audio outputs: a straight delay and a variable tapped delay. the tap position is a percentage of the main delay time. this allows very short delays (<350us) as well as long delays (750ms). both tap position (‘offset’) and main delay time are voltage-controlled over a -5v to +5v range.

feedback is jumper-selectable from either the tapped position or the main delay. this flexibility can generate standard ‘rhythmic’ delays (feedback from main delay) or a series of ‘pre-delay reflections’ (tapped delay) which sound very different from each other.

Rob Papen delay on sale

July 31, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · 1 Comment 

AudioMIDI has a sale on the Rob Papen Delay. $10 instead of $65.

RP-Delay is a unique delay which is heavily focused on some very special features, including brand new fx routing!

For instance, the sound reverser can reverse the input, while simultaneously reversing one of the delay lines.
The reverse sound can also be triggered with your keyboard, generating totally new sounds, and sending them into the reverser with its own filter and distortion!

You can have 6 delay lines with 8 active multi-mode filters all operating at once in each of several delay models. Of course, we included basic delay models like a simple mono delay and a stereo delay, but also a tape-sound delay which allows you to change tape length without any clicks. The delays, filters, and reverser can all be modulated by the built-in modulators. There are 4 modulation sequencers, 4 LFO’s, and 4 envelopes, complete with several trigger options!

There are many other new features and options for you to discover which aren’t mentioned here, so go ahead, take the plunge, and dig into the brand new experience of RP-Delay.

Features:
VST2.4, AU and RTAS plug-in for PC (Xp/Vista 32/Vista 64/Win7 32/Win7 64)and Mac OS-X 10.4 > (IntelMac+ppc)
Two activations allowed. 2nd activation after registering product.
6 delay lines grouped in two sets (a/b/c for both delay 1 & 2).
Delays can be routed in a number of ways to create various distinct delay.
models: mono, stereo, dual stereo, channel split, split multi, serial multi, parallel multi, full serial and reverse.
Each set of delays has a tape mode, simulating the analog tape delay effect.
The delays each have a number of controls: delay time/length, sync to host, multi-mode filter, distortion effect and more.
Reverser module for both delays allows you to reverse the sound at any stage of the signal flow.
Up to 4 triggers can have a MIDI CC control assigned for triggering events.
Audio follower for processing input volume as a modulation source.
Four envelopes and four LFOs can be used to modulate controls.
Includes various triggering options.
LFOs have a humanization parameter which lets the LFO speed change randomly over time.
8 individual modulators.
4 sequencers with 16-step interface.Sequencer includes copy/paste and file management options so you can easily reuse sequencer settings.
5 banks of presets – both as insert and send, ranging from simple delay effects to more crazy effects

Running a simple sequence using the Analogue Systems rs200 Sequencer

June 12, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

We just received the very first shipment of Pittsburgh Modular Analog Delay modules. This module is awesome!

We’re running a simple sequence using the Analogue Systems rs200 Sequencer, Livewire AFG, Division 6 Filtaire, Analogue Systems rs60 Envelope Generator, A.S. rs85 LFO, and the Malekko VCA. We used the LFO’s triangle output to modulate the delay time, then the feedback amount. This is a really well designed and beautiful sounding delay module and we are happy that it’s available now. :-)

A basic initial overview of the awesome Pittsburgh Analog Delay module. Piston Honda is the audio source, with Maths and .VCA for shaping. The excellent Pittsburgh Timetable is driving a Rene’, which provides quantized pitches to the Piston as well as non-quantized CV to the Delay Rate of the Analog Delay later on in the video.

 

Pimp up your loops !

May 13, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The multi-band delay machine FDELAY is an exciting tool for sound design and loop manipulation in realtime. In contrast to the delay machines you’re used to FDELAY splits the frequency spectrum of the input signal into 27 bands and applies a separate delay unit to each band. The delay times can be synchronized to the host tempo generating nearly infinite rhythmical and sonic variations of the input signal. For each of the delay bands you can specify the delay time, the level and the feedback amount separately. These parameter changes can even be automized in realtime for glitch free rhythmical morphings.

A few high level parameters let you change the delay times and feedbacks of all delays with the turn of a single knob

GetLoFi Delay Unit and Piezo Tine Demo

May 3, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

This is a first demo of the newly revised GetLoFi Delay Kit. The kit will be available for purchase from GetLoFi.com/shop. The metal tines are mounted on a piece of wood with a Piezo pick underneath. The signal from the pickup is then routed directly into the LoFi Delay Unit and the output is routed strait to the audio recorder. The only controls on the delay unit are Delay Time and Delay Feedback. Unit turns on when an output cable is inserted. In the demo the unit is operated by an optional 9 Volt Wall supply.  The delay itself is based on the PT2399 Digital IC, only bare minimum of components were used to make assembly as simple as possible. No OP-Amps are present in the circuit.

New universal echo delay unit with hold function

April 19, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

WOK has released Echo Freeze Unit EFU-1, a universal echo delay unit with hold function for Windows.

“EFU-1 is more than another delay plugin. Besides all the basic functions (host sync or milliseconds, digital/tape/analog sound, modulation) it features a distinctive freeze function; like some famous hardware delay units, the delay buffer can act like a sampler. Up to 4/1 bars of input signal can be recorded (or lets better say: frozen) and continously played back at a selectable speed – even reverse.
But EFU-1 is more flexible than hardware devices: while a frozen audio segment is played back, the delay unit remains useable – even at a different delay time / sync divider! Also to hold and freeze a signal it is possible to first choose ‘record’ and then send audio to the plugin, or you continously play thru the delay and if the ‘last loop’ was interesting, you hit ‘Record’ to freeze it!
And while the recorded phrase is played back – even reverse, you may continue to play along with it thru the delay at a different time setting. By the way: feedback can be cranked up until nearly endless, and in millisecond mode, the delay time can be changed smoothly from many seconds to very short – producing these famous dub sounds!”

Price: 29 EUR

Modcan Super Delay & Digital Delay Comparison

February 28, 2011 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

People have been wondering about the difference in sound between the Modcan 30B Super Delay (which is a true analog delay) and the Modcan 59B Digital Delay, so I set up a simple audio demonstration. It’s not meant to be an analog vs. digital contest — as you’ll hear, both of them sound beautiful but have very different tonal characteristics as well as unique reactions to control voltage manipulation.

The Modcan Sequencer is triggering a Modcan 58B VCDO that is passing through a Modcan 68B Matrix Filter (using the 4-Pole Bandpass output). In the first half of the video, that signal is passing through the analog Super Delay — which is a mono device. I twiddle the knobs throughout and then eventually let triangle waveforms from the Modcan 61B Quad LFO take over the invisible finger chores.

The second half of the video is the same sequence and signal chain passing through the Digital Delay, which has been engaged to output the audio in stereo mode. Again, after some manual twiddling I put the 61B Quad LFO to work once more and send a slow-moving triangle waveform into the control voltage inputs.

As may be apparent from the studio configuration, I do love the Modcan modules for their sound, aesthetic beauty and a user interface that squeezes myriad functions per module into a reasonably-sized space. I hope you find this a useful and entertaining video.
