WOK has released VVOC-1, a new free synth plug-in that generates vocal sounds with a vintage electronic touch, from single formants to synthetic choir sounds.

The integrated triple-chorus and the X/Y pad for adjusting the formants, a pitch glide function and a hidden secret unveil more power than the easy GUI might imply.

Price: Free. As with all of WOK’s plugins there is no adware or spyware included.

Three new Duende Native plug-ins has been released

May 9, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment

Solid State Logic has announced that three new Duende Native plug-ins and migration to iLok 2 copy protection are now available online.

The superior audio quality and deep feature set of the SSL Duende Native plug-in range has earned the respect of a very discerning clientele through the years.

The three new plug-ins complement the existing range with two plug-ins (X-Saturator & X-ValveComp) designed to bring some analogue saturation and distortion emulation to your digital DAW and the third (X-Phase) delivering high precision frequency specific phase correction.

The new plug-ins are available now via the SSL web site. To coincide with the new plug-in release SSL has migrated the entire Duende Native plug-in collection to the iLok 2 copy protection system. SSL has also announced a summer release for AAX native versions of the entire suite.

New Duende plug-ins

  • X-Phase is an All-pass Filter plug-in that offers the user manual control and benchmark audio quality. It enables the user to apply a phase shift (sometimes called a phase offset) at a specified frequency within a signal. Unlike other filter types where the gain of selected frequencies is altered, with an All-pass Filter the gain remains unchanged throughout the signal. This is useful for fixing phase problems with microphones when recording: eg overheads causing phase problems when mixed with close mic’s.
  • X-Saturator delivers a stunning range of analogue style distortion effects. It is an emulation of an analogue circuit that introduces either 2nd order valve style or 3rd order transistor style distortion or a blend of the two. At low drive settings the distortion is mild and can add gentle warming to help instruments sit nicely in a mix or to add a little extra edge to help instruments cut through a mix. As drive levels are increased so too is the level of distortion until at high drive levels heavy distortion occurs.
  • X-ValveComp is a fully-featured mono or stereo channel compressor with a full set of classic channel compressor controls and an added ‘valve’ emulation stage. The valve emulation stage sits after the compressor in the signal path and adds a variable degree of primarily 2nd order harmonic saturation and distortion that thickens and colours the sound. The compressor can be switched between Peak or RMS modes and has a full set of standard controls.

X-Phase is available for purchase for £199 GBP/249 EUR/$329 USD. X-Saturator and X-ValveComp are £69 GBP/89 EUR/$119 USD each, with an introductory price of £49 GBP/59 EUR/$85 USD for the first 30 days only. Prices exclude tax.

Scope – new modular sound generator and effects processing plugin

April 11, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

scope

Glitchmachines has released Scope, a modular sound generator and effects processing plugin, for Mac & Windows, that is geared toward experimental sound design and electronic music production.

Scope’s open-ended graphical patching system and diverse set of modules let you create a custom audio processing environment, capable of a very broad range of effects.

Features:

  • Fully patchable modular sound generator and signal processor
  • Sample library with 1500+ modular SFX in 24bit/96khz .wav
  • 26 Modules ranging from Oscillators & Delays to LFOs & Mixers
  • Freely configurable module slots and signal flow
  • Tactile graphical patching system with virtual patch cables
  • Real-time animated audio analyzers and visualizers
  • 160 patches from 8 cutting-edge sound designers and artists
  • Cross-platform compatibility (PC/Mac – VST/AU 32bit & 64bit)

This is Overview video going over the SCOPE plugin and included modular synthesizer sample library.

This is a basic tutorial video showing how to set up a couple of basic patches in Scope.

We worked with 6 of the best module manufacturers to put together the Eurorack system used to generate all the content. Our goal was to create a functional counterpart to Scope; something you can’t easily achieve with a computer that interacts well with the plugin and gives you a new palette of sounds to work with right out of the box.

Focused on the darker side of modular synthesis, sound designer Ivo Ivanov created a collection of compelling effects that are equally distinctive and indicative of the depth of Eurorack’s prodigious sonic landscape.

This video is showing behind the scenes footage from the making of the modular synthesizer sample library included with Scope.
