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.

Roland keyboard specialist Scott Tibbs demonstrates the Roland INTEGRA-7 SuperNATURAL sound module (and A-49 MIDI controller) at Kraft Music.
Roland marcomm pitch:
With the development of SuperNATURAL sound and Behavior Modeling technology, Roland has blurred the boundary between acoustic and electronic instruments. Built upon these core technologies, the new INTEGRA-7 gives musicians a gold mine of the latest SuperNATURAL sounds in a fast-access, fully stocked 16-part module.
The powerhouse rack comprises a “greatest hits” collection of sounds from Roland’s flagship keyboards and V-Drums modules, plus a coveted lineup from the legacy SRX library. It also introduces a new technology called Motional Surround, a 17-part ambience engine that lets you graphically control the distance and position of each part within 360-degree sound field. With the immense power of the INTEGRA-7, you can create amazingly realistic and detailed orchestral arrangements, immersive, spatial sounds, and beyond.

Musix Pro is the most innovative app for performing music. Music theory is baked right in through the use of a technique called isomorphic note layouts. Novices learn to play in minutes, and professionals benefit from built-in harmonic relationships between notes. Unlike other music apps, Musix Pro provides a wide range of octaves, scales, keys, chords and modes, without limiting your creativity. With multiple built-in instruments and support for OSC and Core/Virtual Midi, most existing synthesizers work beautifully with Musix Pro as a controller.
Traditional musical instruments are difficult to learn because notes are arranged based on physical constraints. Musix Pro arranges notes based on their harmonic and musical relationships instead, allowing shapes and patterns to emerge that unlock the mathematical beauty of music.
Musix Pro is a new isomorphic iPad /iPhone Instrument available on the app store.
