CHOW Tape is an analog tape machine physical model, originally based on the Sony TC-260. The current version can be used to emulate a wide variety of reel-to-reel tape machines. The physical modelling process is described in a technical paper presented at the 2019 DAFx conference. This work began part of a class project for Music 420 at Stanford University (CCRMA).
CHOW Tape is currently available in the following formats:
ToneDeluxe V2 is designed as a complete tube amplifier from the preamplification stage to the baffles. It is based on a simulation of the ECC83 and EL34 tubes, its temporal modeling makes it possible to reduce the signal processing time and This provides “pleasure to play” for guitarists. It offers two independent channels: clean and high gain. The high gain channel is versatile thanks to the DriveTone which cuts or boosts the high frequencies before the 3-band EQ. The Clean channel has a “Dirty” mode which allows boosting the gain and having a crunch of hell.
AUXTURE is a unique exploratory sampler and sequencer (AUX-Seq) which enables the user to manipulate and record single samples or entire folders of samples through gesture, randomness and modulation. Unexpected results are achieved via the audio exploration of single samples or entire folders through gestures, randomness and modulation. The software comes bundled with a ‘Slices’ folder containing 115 free to use samples.
AUXTURE processes your loaded samples across a myriad of random parameters. The results open up a unique portrayal of your sound.
When AUXTURE receives a note, it applies an exploratory set of processes resulting in unique outputs based on unexpected outcomes or happy accidents applied to your sample set.
It chooses a random sample from its memory according to a freely settable probability. It then plays it back with a rate proportional to the pitch.
Some parameters related to sample playback are directly settable, such as loop mode, pitch shift and detunes, while others are based on chance, such as choosing another sample or reverse playback.
A random delay of a few milliseconds allows a rapid and unpredictable timbre variation, while frequency and ring modulations alter the sample more heavily. For a subsequent smoothing of the sound and to ensure complete processing there are digital distortion, delay, a weird reverb and two second order filters.
Features: Multi-effect software module featuring:
▪ ADSR Envelope
▪ Timbric Delay
▪ Frequency Modulation
▪ Ring Modulation
▪ Redux Distortion
▪ Stereo Delay
▪ Weird reverb
▪ 2 x Second Order Filters with cut-off, resonance and gain controls
▪ Bandpass, Notch and Shelf Filters.
The default playback mode is looping the sample during sustain phase, it’s possible disabling this behaviour. It’s also possible to set a sample change and reverse playback probabilities.
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.
Boing Boing makes my old tube amp when I move it or when I wildly unplug my jack! Well now, you just have to move your favorite DAW to hear the evil melody of the wiggling spring. It’s vintage and It’s very warm. All the sounds come from impulse responses grappled on the web. They’ve been cleaned up and I’ve been working on a convolution reverb algorithm optimized with small onions (french expression to said fine tuning). Thanks to: Standford DUBBHISM Fokke van Saane Millertone …
38 spring reverbs impulse responses selected and cleaned
3 levels of complexity (low and mid limit the audio bandwidth)
Compatible 44100Hz, 48000Hz, 88200Hz, 96000Hz, 176400Hz and 192000Hz. Plugins tested under Logic and Reaper
An optimized convolution engine that can go up to 4 seconds
A tone to adjust the brightness of the reverb
A tunable impulse response size (which also plays on the complexity) and a dry / wet mix to be able to go to extreme settings
Flux Mini is an audio effect that adds life, character and dynamism to your tracks. The customisable graph creates a shape which affects either the amplitude, low-pass filter or high-pass filter. You can emphasise the frequency modulation with the resonance knob too.
Pre-loaded with 20 presets to get you going, it won’t be long before you’ve built a plethora of shapes to accentuate your fantastic music.
From simple side-chains to manic modulations, sculpt some life into your sounds – flux it up and have some fluxing fun.
Available as: VST3 for Windows, AU + VST3 for MacOS and AUv3 for iOS and iPadOS. Please ensure your DAW supports one of these formats.
SynthMaster Player is a simplied version of SynthMaster with limited editing capabilities. It is targeted towards users who prefer to use presets rather than designing their own sounds. It comes with 1800 factory presets. Users can edit the 12 easy parameters or the bypass states of layer/global effects assigned for each preset by the sound designer.
There is also a FREE version of SynthMaster Player that comes with 550 factory presets. Uses can freely use that free version in that music productions!
Each preset in SynthMaster Player has 8 easy knobs and 2 XY pads assigned by the sound designer. Users can edit these parameters to modify the preset’s timbre. The easy parameters can be linked to MIDI controllers using the easy to use ‘Midi Learn’ feature.
SynthMaster Player comes with 2 different skins in different color variations. Using the user interface editor (included in SynthMaster/SynthMaster DEMO), users can not only customize the existing skins but also can create their own custom interfaces as well.
