audioD3CK has released ChopChop, a compressor effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

ChopChop’s algorithm was originally designed to be reasonably clean while operating with a very fast attack time and classic peak detection. The result is a very flexible compressor with a distinct sound. ChopChop is best used when the compression is meant to be heard, but it can act as an invisible tool too!

ChopChop features

  • External side chain.
  • Linear domain compression for an old school sound.
  • High pass filter in side chain.
  • Range control to limit amount of gain reduction.
  • Range knee to alter character of compression range.
  • Mid/side mode.
  • Freely adjustable channel linking.
  • Adjustable compression knee.
  • Full range ratio, all the way form 1:1 to 1:infinity.
  • Flexible metering.
  • Parallel compression.
  • Release acceleration control to alter compressors behavior.

ChopChop for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for 19 EUR (non-commercial) / 49 EUR (commercial).

AudioD3CK has also released a version 1.1 update for all its plugins, which includes the following new features:

  • Resizable UIs.
  • Internal preset handling.
  • Undo/redo for parameter changes.
  • Updated manuals.
  • Better authorization process.
  • Improved installer.
  • Registration free demo versions.
  • Some presets.
  • [Krucz] Additional makeup parameter.

The updates are free to existing customers. AAX and VST3 versions are in development.

Tokyo Dawn Records and Variety of Sound have released SlickEQ – Gentleman’s Edition, an equalizer effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

SlickEQ – Gentleman’s Edition takes SlickEQ’s concept to new heights and adds an exotic “Tilt”-filter flanked by flexible low-pass and high-pass filters. Five distinct EQ models provide a rich set of predefined EQ curves and behaviours for the three main semi parametric filter bands.

SlickEQ GE offers a switchable EQ non-linearity as well as six different output stages. These options offer subtle and interesting textures, from the typical “mojo” often associated with high quality analogue audio gear, up to more obvious saturation.

SlickEQ – Gentleman’s Edition features

  • Modern user interface with outstanding usability and ergonomics.
  • Carefully designed 64bit “delta” multi-rate structure.
  • Three semi-parametric filter bands, each with two shape options.
  • Five distinct EQ models: American, British, German, Soviet and Japanese.
  • Low band offers an optional phase-lag able to delay low frequencies relative to higher frequencies.
  • High pass filter with optional “Bump” mode.
  • Low pass filter with two different slopes (6dB/Oct and 12dB/Oct).
  • Parametric Tilt filter with optional “V” mode..
  • Six output stages: Linear, Silky, Mellow, Deep, Excited and Toasted.
  • Advanced saturation algorithms by VoS (“Stateful saturation”).
  • Highly effective loudness compensated auto gain control.
  • Stereo, mono and sum/difference (mid/side) processing options.
  • Frequency magnitude plot.
  • Tool-bar with undo/redo, A/B, advanced preset management and more.

SlickEQ – Gentleman’s Edition for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase for 30 EUR.

First look at iPad app Deregulator – using Thumbjam

June 10, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

A first go on deregulator the new iPad app by Ashshaosh Daa. The app is a delay/echo/reverb combo but with a twist…all components can be randomized to alter each/any setting over time.

the concept is very simple but in use it is a great way of creating mangled textures that recycle what you put in and spitit back out at you in new in interesting ways.

1

Deregulator it’s a mini-processor of stereo effects with Echo, Delay and Reverberator. Input signal goes to echo and delay simultaneously. Then delayed and echoed signal lands into reverberator. All parameters of this effects may be randomised at once and some key parameters can be randomised dynamically all time. On output we have wide effects range from simple mono echo/delay/reverb and combinations to near granulation live when remains of sounds create nebula around original input and like morning mist its blurring and smudging sound into scape of something new, vibrant and beautiful (degree of beautifulness depends on what you feed in D). 
Delay just repeat sound pieces and size of every piece can be randomised, this chop and remix original sound into sometimes very glitchy, something new. Echo behaves like a usual echo unless you start randomising delay and feedback parameters. Reverb have three parameters, room size, damping and wetness of output. Off course all of them are randomisible. Randomising its a root of conception in this little app.
How it sounds like? Lets walk together to the border that splits effects from synthesisers where only granular with live input lives and question this line, she is exist? You must play with it or go to soundcloud(tag deregulator) for examples. 

Go to look at instruction and detailed description on ckek.ru

Feature list:
+ Three linked effect module (Echo, Delay and Reverb)
+ Randomisers for every parameters of this effects
+ Ability to randomise all parameters at once
+ Recording of affected audio to wav
+ Share files to iTunes, AudioCopy 2, AudioShare
+ Audiobus of course
+ 25 non-factory presets slots
+ Stereo/mono

Coming soon:
+ Universal app(Yeah, download once and run everywhere)
+ Audiobus 2 and all slots
+ IAA

Tested on iPhone 4s(iOS 6&7), iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, iPad 2, iPad New and iPod touch 4. And i don’t recommend run this app on something lower then 4s. On iPod4 lag is too big, Deregulator need ~100mb ram and more power in heart. iPhone 4s/iPod5 is recommended as low line to work comfortably.

Flow – new flanger that goes far beyond traditional

May 31, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

flow-flanger-au

SineVibes has introduced Flow – a flanger that’s designed to create effects that go far beyond tradtitional up and down ‘swoosh’ effects.

Flow uses a sophisticated envelope sequencer to modulate the sound in a rhythmical fashion. Flow has two different flanger characters, with positive or negative feedback, advanced synchronization and timing features, plus a host of automation and randomization options.

This allows you to create a myriad of unique effects: from intricate “jet plane” patterns and dancing comb filtering to complex swooshes or stuttered glitches. In addition, each instance of Flow stores eight snapshots of itself that can be switched in realtime or via automation.

Specifications:

  • Flanger with positive/negative feedback, adjustable time range from 0.5 to 20 ms.
  • Step sequencer with up to 32 steps, variable speed, timing and shuffle.
  • Flanger gate, flanger time, envelope modulation depth, and envelope shape individual per each sequencer step.
  • Eight full instance snapshots, multiple utility and randomisation functions.
  • Advanced transport sync algorithm with support for tempo and time signature automation.

22985_6

Mastrcode Music tells us that T-Force Phaser is an effects device for adding phase cancellations as a creative effect to your sounds. They say that it results in a sound with a spacey feeling.

Specifications:

  • Phase cancellation up to 16 stages – means how many points in the frequency range will be cancelled by a serially connected chain of allpass filters).
  • Frequency Range control – determines the center frequency where the stages will be aligned.
  • Spread control – controls how far the single stages are apart from each other.
  • Feedback amount control – controls how strong the signal will be fed back to the audio input (stronger amounts result in a more metallic sound).
  • Depth control – determines how strong the phase cancellation will be added to the original sound.
  • BPM syncable LFO with phase offset for modulating the Frequency Range (lets the stages sweep up and down in the frequency spectrum).
  • MIDI Learn (by right clicking a control)
  • All functions fully automatable

Three new Duende Native plug-ins has been released

May 9, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

ssl_duende-plugin_thumb

 

Solid State Logic has announced that three new Duende Native plug-ins and migration to iLok 2 copy protection are now available online.

The superior audio quality and deep feature set of the SSL Duende Native plug-in range has earned the respect of a very discerning clientele through the years.

The three new plug-ins complement the existing range with two plug-ins (X-Saturator & X-ValveComp) designed to bring some analogue saturation and distortion emulation to your digital DAW and the third (X-Phase) delivering high precision frequency specific phase correction.

The new plug-ins are available now via the SSL web site. To coincide with the new plug-in release SSL has migrated the entire Duende Native plug-in collection to the iLok 2 copy protection system. SSL has also announced a summer release for AAX native versions of the entire suite.

New Duende plug-ins

  • X-Phase is an All-pass Filter plug-in that offers the user manual control and benchmark audio quality. It enables the user to apply a phase shift (sometimes called a phase offset) at a specified frequency within a signal. Unlike other filter types where the gain of selected frequencies is altered, with an All-pass Filter the gain remains unchanged throughout the signal. This is useful for fixing phase problems with microphones when recording: eg overheads causing phase problems when mixed with close mic’s.
  • X-Saturator delivers a stunning range of analogue style distortion effects. It is an emulation of an analogue circuit that introduces either 2nd order valve style or 3rd order transistor style distortion or a blend of the two. At low drive settings the distortion is mild and can add gentle warming to help instruments sit nicely in a mix or to add a little extra edge to help instruments cut through a mix. As drive levels are increased so too is the level of distortion until at high drive levels heavy distortion occurs.
  • X-ValveComp is a fully-featured mono or stereo channel compressor with a full set of classic channel compressor controls and an added ‘valve’ emulation stage. The valve emulation stage sits after the compressor in the signal path and adds a variable degree of primarily 2nd order harmonic saturation and distortion that thickens and colours the sound. The compressor can be switched between Peak or RMS modes and has a full set of standard controls.

X-Phase is available for purchase for £199 GBP/249 EUR/$329 USD. X-Saturator and X-ValveComp are £69 GBP/89 EUR/$119 USD each, with an introductory price of £49 GBP/59 EUR/$85 USD for the first 30 days only. Prices exclude tax.
