BX-13-MICRO Vintage Roland Analog Guitar Synth to Modern GR-55 Bus Converter with VCA

September 5, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The BX-13-MICRO is a most advanced, yet easiest to use, vintage 24-pin to 13-pin Roland guitar synthesizer bus converter.

The BX-13-MICRO tackles the problem of controlling the level of the normal guitar by including a voltage-controlled amplifier inside the BX-13, doing the same job as the voltage controlled amplifiers found inside a GR-500, GR-300 or GR-700.

And here is an added plus: no loss of tone as you turn the guitar volume down! The advanced VCA design does not roll off tone like a passive volume control. You get the full range of tone at any volume.

With an entirely redesigned circuit, the transparently converts the 24-pin format to the 13-pin format, and there are no levels to adjust, no additional cables, just clean, analog signal processing with no latency.

Never Happened Before – The Vo-96 Acoustic Synthesizer

May 26, 2013 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

The Vo-96 can now be ordered on the Vo Inventions website, www.voinventions.com

An important moment in the development of Acoustic Synthesis. Learn how you can own a vo-96 Acoustic Synthesizer at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/3…

The Vo-96 Acoustic Synthesizer is based on a key invention that enables accurate control of acoustic vibrations. I’m the inventor. My technology was behind the well-known Moog Guitar and the Moog lap steel — instruments based on the same key principle. Since then I’ve been advancing this invention towards its full potential. Now I’m going ahead with the Vo-96 Acoustic Synthesizer. It’s my full ‘inventor’s version’ product and will be produced by my design company Vo Inventions LLC.

The Vo-96 was never intended to be a retail type of product. It is a concept product that takes the technology to the max and demonstrates what’s really possible with acoustic synthesis. It’s the “inventor’s cut” and it leaves nothing out — which makes it impractical to sell through the standard retail channels with their customary price mark-ups. Making the Vo-96 available through Kickstarter allows us to maximize the value to you and provide the most powerful product for the price; and there is simply nothing else available at any price that does what the Vo-96 does.

Our goal is to launch Acoustic Synthesis technology with a bang.  We want to put the most powerful instrument possible into the hands of as many forward-thinking guitarists as possible and listen to the new music you all create. This is where Kickstarter really shines! I’m thrilled to have found a way to offer the Vo-96 directly to you at the fairest price possible – about half what it would cost as a retail product!

Vitamin C – emulation of an Orange Squeezer guitar compressor

August 19, 2012 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Distorque has released Vitamin C, a free emulation of an Orange Squeezer guitar compressor. It has added controls for tweaking or for completely reshaping the compression.

Vitamin C is not a studio compressor, it has the quirks and imperfections of the original Orange Squeezer that gave it its unique character.

The Orange Squeezer is a guitar compressor that was released in the 1970s as part of the Dan Armstrong effect line. It has been used prominently by artists like Mark Knopfler and Jeff Baxter for its smooth squish and sustain.

Features:

  • Switchable 2x oversampling.
  • 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
  • Stereo and Mono operation.
  • Bass and Treble EQ.
  • Dry blend control.
  • Additional compressor controls: Attack, Release, Threshold, and Ratio.

Vitamin C is free and is available for 32- and 64-bit Windows as a VST effect plug-in.
