Phase84 – next gen phase distortion synth inspired by the Casio CZ

December 17, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

phase-84-synthesizer-casio-software-synthesizer

Retronyms has released Phase84 – described as ‘a next generation phase distortion synthesizer’, inspired by the classic phase distortion synthesis sounds of the Casio CZ line of synths.

Phase distortion synthesis is a form of waveshaping synthesis that has its roots in Casio’s CZ line of digital synthesizers from the 80s. It is designed to have the warmth of a subtractive (analog) synthesizer, yet be capable of the squelchy tones and sharp attacks of an FM synth.

Phase84 is an extremely capable synthesizer and features over 110 presets, containing all sorts of basses, leads, pads, bell tones, sweeps, atmospheric sounds, pseudo-realistic tones, and more. While you don’t need to know much about synthesizers to get a lot out of Phase84, experienced synth tweakers will be thrilled at the sheer variety of unique sounds that can be produced with this incredibly versatile synth.

Features:

  • More than 100 presets.
  • MIDI support.
  • inter-App Audio support.
  • Advanced Keyboard section.
  • Expressive Perform Mode with Groove Gate.
  • Tabletop Ready App.
  • Precision Knob mode.
  • Phat, naturalistic unison feature for super thick pads and sweeps.
  • Oscillator Section: 9 Params, 2 General-Purpose Oscillators, 1 Formant Oscillator.
  • Mix Section: 8 Params including Delay Amount and Pulse Width.
  • Envelope Section: Amplitude and Shaper Envelopes. Fully visualized and interactive
  • ADSR plus special Fade Param.
  • Delay/Filter Section: Stereo delay with loss modeling and a punchy overdriven analog-style filter.
  • 3 LFOs: More flexible than your average LFO, this has 4 waveforms, optional delay and repeat count, and can go into the audible frequency range.

Photophore | Flock Synthesizer for iPad

December 11, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

Taika Systems has introduced Photophore – a unique instrument that brings ‘flock synthesis’ to the iPad’. Photophore uses ‘flocks’ of up to 100 sound generators to create rich, organic synthesizer sounds. By controlling the behavior of the flocks, you can make Photophore sound like a choir of synthesizers or, at more extreme settings, a swarm of angry insects.

**Now available on the App Store at special introductory price of only $4.99!**

Flock Synthesis

Unlike other digital synthesizers, Photophore creates warmth and character in a new way. Instead of modeling analog circuits, it models animal behavior.

Photophore’s sound engine is made up of flocks of oscillators that move through a virtual three-dimensional environment. Their motion is controlled by a behavioral algorithm and physics simulation that keeps the oscillators in tune with each other, but allows for a certain amount of natural drifting and detuning.

You can interact with the oscillator flocks by controlling their behavior – how much they try to flock together, how much they avoid each other, their speed, and how much turbulence is in their environment. Oscillators will ‘flee’ from your touch, so you can create extreme pitch modulation and more chaotic effects by swiping across the screen.

Features:

  • Unique flock synthesis engine
  • Up to 100 oscillators per patch
  • Monophonic or polyphonic operation (up to 6 voices)
  • 6 oscillator waveforms (saw, square, pulse and more)
  • Low pass/High pass filter with resonance
  • Dedicated amplitude and filter envelopes
  • Stereo echo effect
  • Arpeggiator

Connectivity:

  • Use any iPad-compatible MIDI keyboard to play notes and perform pitch bends
  • AudioBus and Inter-App Audio support for streaming audio to other apps
  • Control Photophore from other apps via CoreMIDI

Tech Requirements:

  • iOS7 or later required

Freeware: Mantra Evo synthesizer – combining FM and Phase Dist synthesis

November 27, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

24142_278

 

beatassist.eu says that Mantra Evo is a high capable synthesizer, combining FM and Phase Dist synthesis, all in one. Here’s what they have to say about it…

Mantra Evo is based on an FM synth and a Phase Dist synth. Both of these synths are gifted with a morphing system that will morph the basic waves into some more complex ones. Each of these synths are also gifted with 5 envelopes (amp, pitch, filter, modulation and morphing). The modulation of these synths is based on FM modulation system using kbd and depth.
On the filter envelope you can tweak just cutoff, resonance or both. Each of these synths are gifted of an LFO with two targets, dedicated filter, free speed knob, sync option and waveform choice. There is a Chorus for each synth too, making your sounds phater.

The effects you can use for Mantra are Octave Stepper, Distortion, Reverb, EQ, Stereo Delay and Trancegate.
Each of the synths can be individually connected to any of these effects leaving the other off.

Mono Mode can be used with a high gliding range.

Mantra Evo runs on Windows XP/Vista/Win7/Win8 32-bits and 64-bits when bridged.

Crank – new hybrid synthesiser for Kontakt

November 24, 2014 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comment 

stacks_image_233

Rhythmic Robot Audio has released Crank, a hybrid synthesiser for Kontakt melding acoustic and electronic sources in a 4-oscillator architecture.

Crank takes over six hundred samples of an Eastern European stringed hurdy-gurdy – and places them at the heart of a four-oscillator analogue synthesiser framework ideally suited to the creation of strange, eerie, evolving patches.

The acoustic hurdy-gurdy produces its sounds by rubbing a rosined wooden wheel over a series of violin-style strings: the sound is half violin, half hand-cranked barrel organ and can be both plaintive and raw-sounding. Rhythmic Robot has sampled a hurdy-gurdy extensively to create the basic tones for Crank, and named the instrument after the handle that the player cranks round to make the hurdy-gurdy play.

The twin Crank oscillators are independently controllable, with dual filters, envelopes, pitch control, LFOs and so on; they also run in tandem with twin Analogue Oscillators, adding some classic analogue waves to the tonal palette. The characteristic attack “squeal” of the acoustic hurdy-gurdy can be turned on or off individually, and the sound sources mixed and blended to create haunting and evocative instruments that sound “almost real.”

Features:

  • Twin Crank oscillators drawn from extensive samples of the hurdy-gurdy.
  • Twin Analogue oscillators sampled from the Roland SH7 flagship analogue synth.
  • Twin flavours of noise: classic white noise, plus vinyl-style crackle.
  • Extensive LFO modulation of pitch, amplitude and filter cutoff, independently for both Cranks.
  • The Rhythmic Robot GLITCH button to randomise the instrument in musically inspiring ways.

Price: £24.95 – Crank is available now from Rhythmic Robot, at an introductory special-offer price of £19.95. Requires Kontakt v.4.2.3 or later to run (including all versions of Kontakt 5). Kontakt Player is not supported.
