GliderVerb – new free Max for Live device

March 27, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

amazingnoises_GliderVerb

Amazing Noises has released GliderVerb, a free Max for Live device.

GliderVerb is a “reverberator with glissandos” simulating a room gradually changing its shape. It is an expanded version of an algorithm created by James McCartney for his Supercollider 2 programming language.

The original algorithm had no user-variable parameters: this device adds a series of parameters to create a wide palette of effects; from evolving reverberations to granular disintegration to smooth resonances.

GliderVerb is available to download at no charge. Requires Live 9 and Max for Live.

Xen-FMTS 2 – free 4-Operator FM Synthesis for alternative intonations

February 27, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

xen-fmts_2

Xen-Arts has released Xen-FMTS 2, a 4-Operator FM Synthesis with a specialized set of features for computer musicians interested in exploring the expressive possibilities of making music with alternative intonation systems. It includes 115 patches, 55 microtunings and 56 partials files.

Microtuning:

  • Internally loads and externally receives both MTS (MIDI Tuning Standard) Bulk Dump and Single Note Microtuning Files.
  • Operator ratios can easily be set to values that are coincident with the microtuning being used, thereby producing intonation related sidebands in the timbre of the instrument.
  • Microtonal pitch-bend ranges may be configured in cents, harmonics and superparticular ratios.
  • Arbitrary microtonal pitch shifting makes it possible to easily pitch transpose the oscillators in both octave and non-octave increments.

FM-RM Oscillator:

  • 4 Operator FM Synthesis with Ring-Modulation.
  • 57 Operator Algorithms.
  • 11 different Operator Waveforms.
  • Analog Pitch Drift Emulator.
  • Transposition by cents offsets.
  • Partials text files may be used to quantize the frequency ratios of the operators to user specified values.
  • Velocity-to-Harmonics Modulation enables oscillators to dynamically sound harmonics of the fundamental pitch.

Modulators:

  • Seven dedicated hybrid modulators for Operators A, B, C, D, Filters, Amplifier and Pitch.
  • Each modulator includes an ADSR style envelope generator, and an LFO which can be switched to run at audio-rate.
  • Each ADSR Envelope Generator features Per-Stage Keyboard Tracking.
  • LFOs can either be synchronized to the host DAW tempo or set in Hertz. They include 24 Waveforms, a Slewer and can be switched to run at audio-rate.

Filter Section:

  • Pre-Filter Saturation Stage with 20 Saturation Types.
  • Two Independent Filters with Six Filter Types: LP4, LP2, HPF, BPF, BRF, APF.
  • One and Two Stage Filter Cascade.

Performance Control:

  • Full controller MIDI Pitch Microtuning with MTS (MIDI Tuning Standard).
  • MTS Support for both Single Note and Bulk Dump.
  • Loads MTS Microtuning Format Files Internally and Receives MTS Externally.
  • Local (Per-Patch) and Global Microtuning (Static Microtuning for All Patches).
  • Microtunings can be loaded from any directory on hard drives or storage devices connected to the PC.
  • 12 Note Polyphonic.
  • Monophonic Legato Mode.
  • Monophonic Portamento.
  • Microtonal Pitch Bend.
  • Vibrato.
  • Effects include Chorus, Lowpass Filter Cascade (Warm Filter) with 6 dB to 48 dB per-octave filters and Stereo Ensemble.

Price: Free.

Free synth for Ableton Live – based on DSI’s Prophet 12

January 12, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Prophet_12_500px

Francis Preve has released a free instrument for Ableton Live, based on Dave Smith’s new Prophet 12 synthesizer.

Here’s what Preve has to say about the free Live instrument:

Dave Smith’s Prophet 12 is one of the most buzzworthy keyboards of 2013. It’s arguably the deepest analog-hybrid polysynth ever released – and since all of my previous packs have used single note samples, I decided to create a pack entirely from chord stabs.

Need a Name has introduced Aria, a free synthesizer instrument for Native Instruments Reaktor.

Hey guys, I released a new Reaktor ensemble named Aria, it’s an experimental synthesizer.

The synth is mostly enjoyable when playing it with a dynamic keyboard, ’cause filters are modulated by velocity.

Aria is a free download at Need a Name. Requires Reaktor full version.

Free download: basic 65 – inspired by the Commodore 64 and its legendary SID chip

December 17, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

21765_2

de la Mancha is continuing to put synths that were previously available for purchase online as free downloads. The latest is a monophonic synth, basic 65, inspired by the classic 80s home computer, the Commodore 64 and its legendary SID chip. Building on the waveforms and signal path of this famous chip, basic 65 adds further features and options to take things a step further. Here’s more details:

The double arpeggiator allows complex versions of that retro 8-bit game sound and the modulation options inspire experimentation via the mod envelope and 2 comprehensive LFOs. Pulse width modulation, ring modulation and oscillator detune/sync are key ingredients in the signature sound. Throw in some pitch drift, bit drift, a sprinkle of dirt and randomisation and you have a wide range of lofi, chiptune, retro-tastic sounds at your disposal.

This version is the update to the popular basic 64, redesigned from scratch, with many improvements, new features and all new presets. basic 65 was co-developed with sink, who also made the amazing presets.

Features

  • Monophonic synth in VST format for Windows based hosts
  • 3 oscillators with pulse, saw, triangle and noise waveforms
  • Pulse width can be modulated by envelope or both LFOs
  • Each oscillator can be sync’d to another and/or ring modulated by another
  • Each oscillator has its own ADSR envelope and can be routed to filter individually
  • Resonant filter with low pass, high pass, band pass and notch modes
  • 2 tempo-sync Arpeggiators in series for complex arp sounds
  • Arp tempo, range and note length can be adjusted
  • Modulation envelope can control pulse width and pitch of individual oscillators as well as filter and dirt
  • 2 tempo-sync LFOs with wide range of waveforms, including random
  • Both LFOs can control pulse width and pitch of individual oscillators
  • One LFO also controls filter and dirt, the other can modulate the depth and speed of the first LFO
  • Envelopes are non-linear and can be retriggered from zero or smoothed on each new note
  • Pitch drift models instability with variable depth and frequency
  • Options for 4, 6, 8, 12 or 16 bit audio with randomising feature
  • Developed with SE 1.1, so no problems with multiple instances
  • 128 presets by sink covering arps, leads, bass, drums and lofi sounds

Pricing and Availability:

basic65 VSTi for Windows used to be a payware plugin, but is now free to download. However, if you like and use any de la Mancha plugins, please consider donating to Cancer Research UK in order to help care for and find a cure for cancer sufferers.
