August 16, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Demo of the new AUFX DUB from Kymatica, tested this with the Yamaha DD65 kit and the Korg Wavedrum Global running through the iPad via a Behringer UCA222. Then into Audiobus and into Cubasis. The recorded reggae drum pattern that plays about half way through was programmed with DM1 then treated with the other AUFX SPACE reverb app, and had some compression from Cubasis added..

AUFX:Dub. A highly tweakable stereo delay audio effect, suitable for everything from clean digital delays to filthy dub echoes and broken cassette tapes. It features tape simulation (noise and warble), filters in the delay loop for typical dub sound, stereo detune, ping-pong delay, and more

All AUFX apps have the following features:

  • High quality 32-bit DSP engine.
  • Process hardware input/output or other apps through Audiobus (input/filter/output slots supported).
  • Ready for the future inter-app audio standard.
  • Fully MIDI controllable, including Virtual MIDI.
  • Built-in look-ahead limiter to avoid clipping.
  • Background Audio.
  • Save and load user presets.

UltraPhaser’s unique user interface includes an LFO Control view, through which the stereo LFO can be evaluated and edited. You can see the speed, width, phase shift and shape of the LFO in this view.
The Vectorscope shows a plot of the output’s left versus right audio channels, to give you an idea of the ‘spatiousness’ of the sound.

UltraPhaser comes packed with presets various classic and more unusual phasers, but of course you can also make your own.

UltraPhaser supports very low latency. This low latency is ideal when processing live audio or an instrument, as hardly any delay is introduced.

Cerberus Audio has announced the release of Epoch Dynamic Comb Filter, an effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Epoch Dynamic Comb Filter is a unique alternative to traditional filtering and dynamics processes such as equalizers and compressors.

Unlike most equalizers, Epoch is musically reactive, and Epoch has a wider range of tonal color than most compressors.

The heart of Epoch is its Comb Filter Section which features a 360° Phase Rotator and a Fractional Delay. The filtered signal is applied selectively by Epoch’s bespoke Dynamics Section.

Epoch (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $72 USD (single user) / $86 USD (commercial).

Dan-D plays around with Effectrix on his latest track!

Effectrix is an advanced effects sequencer, or perhaps I should say was since it appears you are not able to purchase it anymore if you go to Sugar Bytes homepage…

Sugar Bytes describes Effectrix as “as a musical instrument with lots of possibilities for different expressions of existing material. Sounds of any kind can be transformed to exciting beat structures and soundscapes.”

Effectrix lets you do advanced looping –  loops can also be scratched, stretched, reversed or modulated in loopsize and pitch.
