The Audiomatic Retro Transformer is a new Rack Extension that comes free with Reason 7. Audiomatic is for your music what those insta-hipsta-analogififcation apps are for your cellphone pics. It’s about taking your sounds and making them a little bit wrong in the right way. Color your sounds, add extra grit, or indulge in the lo-fi goodness.
In this microtutorial, we’ll show you how Audiomatic was deployed across an entire mix to bring authenticity to the retro vibe. A little retro here… a little retro there… and it adds up to a dramatically awesomized mix.

Background video description:
I seem to have acquired a lot of eurorack delays. So I thought, let’s make some demos. These are however a lot of work. I also note I have a lot of dust on my modular! But anyway: here is the first: a demo of the Analogue Systems RS-390 echo (digital delay). I got bored with filming the synth itself, so I added a few shots of the vegetable patch on my balcony … Probably next demo will be the Pittsburgh Analog Delay. But don’t hold you breath, this may take a while.
Any suggestions for other patches to try are welcome.

Sinevibes has announced its new AudioUnit effect plugin called Shift, an animated frequency shifter. They tell us that it is designed to add tasty vibes to basses, synths and pads, spice up drum and percussion loops, or simply turn anything into a mad glitch. Here’s the details directly from Sinevibes…
At the core of Shift lies a precise model of the Bode frequency shifter with a silky smooth sound. It can be tuned to produce anything from phasing and wobbling to metallic ringing, beeps and buzzes. And this effect works well with absolutely any type of sound source.
To modulate the frequency shifter, Shift uses its built-in sequencer with up to 32 steps, variable rate and shuffle. With an ability to assign one of 8 envelope shapes per individual step, you can build incredibly elaborate patterns. Inside a single preset, Shift can also store up to 8 separate sequences which you can instantly switch between or automate via your host.
Shift has been meticulously designed to blend usability with flexibility. Its colour-coded, single-view interface has fluid visual feedback and takes no time to learn. This makes it a kind of tool you will want to use again and again.
Pricing and Availability:
Shift is immediately available for $29 as an AudioUnit plugin for OS X 10.6 or later.
Soundtoys has just released Little MicroShift, the latest in their new Boutique plug-in series, and it’s free for a limited time.
The company tells us that Little Microshift is based on a simple, but effective studio trick for creating wide stereo tracks from mono sources. Originally done using hardware pitch shifters, as well as the original SoundToys SoundBlender plug-in, this technique has been used in pro studios as a “secret weapon” on countless vocals, guitars and more for a widening, doubling and interesting spatial effect that adds focus or power to tracks run through it. Soundtoys says that, now, three of the most popular versions of this effect are available at the touch of a button.
As in years past with Devil-Loc and Little Radiator, Little MicroShift is available free to anyone who can find a friend with a “sharing code”. They’re all over FaceBook and forums like GearSlutz and KVR Audio. Once you’ve got Little MicroShift, you can share it with your friends by using your own unique sharing code. The top share-masters win more cool stuff. The grand prize is an autographed original H3000 D/SE Ultra-Harmonizer from our Gear Closet. The promotion ends on March 29th.
