Inphonik has announced the release of a free bitcrusher effect plugin for Windows, macOS, GNU/Linux, and iOS.
Meet the PCM2612 Retro Decimator Unit, a bitcrusher effect plug-in with a distinctive legacy. Based on the work we made on the RYM2612 Iconic FM Synthesizer, our tribute emulation of the Sega Genesis sound chip, the 8-bit decimation is inherited from the FM synth’s PCM playback feature, packed in a simple and compact effect unit. Bonus: it’s free!
The effect is available in 64-bit VST/VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats, as a Rack Extension for Reason 10.1 and higher, and as an AUv3/IAA app for iOS.
Stochas is a revolutionary new type of step sequencer that has a unique randomization engine. Designed to work either in mono or polyphonic modes the engine will select from a set of user inputted notes and takes into consideration the probability set for each, this means Stochas can be used to create evolving melodies, rich sounding string and synth sections, unique bass lines and even chaotic yet looping drum patterns, perfect for live and recorded performances. Chord input and predefined scales, make editing and inputting patterns quick and easy, without any knowledge needed of music theory.
With the ability to create polyrhythmic and polymetric patterns up to 64 steps in length, independently on each of the 4 layers, Stochas can create interesting ideas for your next musical project, be it a Phillip Glass style classical piece with varying rhythmical and metric sequences playing against each other, to a polymeric dance style project that has more life and rhythm than the standard 4/4 patterns. Patterns can be chained and created so that little phrases can be triggered randomly during the playback sequence, this can also be used to prevent repetition of the same note if using Stochas to write a bass line or to keep the pattern evolving.
With the groove template editor, you have total control over the timing and feel of the playback in Stochas, these can also be saved and loaded into other sessions, allowing you to recreate the same feel from track to track easily. MIDI input control means that you can use any hardware controller or another MIDI channel to control Stochas, allowing for live performance control of the polymeric lengths, transpositions, the bias of the maximum number of notes played.
Randomisation engine works in both mono and polyphonic modes.
Groove templates with export and import function.
Predefined key and scales, including custom import.
Our little journey through time continues….
Entered destination of our time machine is again London in 1967.
This is the first instrument of the “LUCY’s Diamonds” collection!
If you like the sound of Sir Paul’s Bass, you will enjoy the “McCart H*FNER BASS”.
The real strength of this bassguitar lies in its playability. No machine gun effect thanks to Multi-Round-Robin. The typical M*cca-feeling can be felt due to the different articulations.
Here are the main features:
– clear and easy to use interface
– Multi-Round-Robin and articulations
– Kontakt 5.4.3 and above (48khz/24bit)
– dead easy velocity control for a convincing natural-sounding bass performance! Playing hard: note with more H*FNER attack / playing soft: slidy tone
– clever script: Modwheel for SUSTAIN/black “c” for STOPing sustain with humanized bass noise.
– Straight Into Tape (15 IPS)
Track24 is neither a Tape Emulation, nor a simple Saturator. It behaves like Analog Tape but without its “downsides”. It doesn’t care about Flutter, Wow or Noise, but it has the Tone and Saturation characteristics of Tape, plus other extra functionality
• Features a Tape Saturation section with a variable Texture control to add more Even or Odd order harmonics;
• A Tone section with 4 filter “presets” that were inspired by 2 different tape machines, running at different Ips – with “Neutral” being a completely flat;
• 4x oversample button to avoid aliasing – adds a tiny bit of latency;
• High and Low pass filters that are pre-saturation. To shape the incoming signal;
• A Dry/Wet knob to mix the clean with the saturated signal.
