What? Shortcircuit is open source? Well yes, but there are big big caveats. Right now there are no downloadable assets you can get to play music, and there is no runnable open source Shortcircuit plugin. We estimate this will be the case for much of 2021, and maybe indefinitely. You may never be able to run an open source Shortcircuit. Might just be too much work. But if you are dev you can help!

What was Shortcurcuit?
Shortcircuit was created as a reaction against the ongoing trend where software samplers are being designed with the primary intent of library playback.

It is intended for people who, like us, consider a sampler to be a musical instrument in its own right, and not just a way to emulate other instruments. It has been a very high priority to make sure that adding and editing individual samples is as fast and logical as possible.

The sample hierarchy in shortcircuit allow you to place samples directly at the highest level of the multi, without having to deal with instrument hierarchies and patches. Want to add a sample to your song? Just drag & drop the sample into shortcircuit and you’re ready to go. Samples can be put in groups for multi-sampling and kit-building, but the complexity is only there when you need it

Sound quality is of highest concern, and shortcircuit uses very high-quality interpolation to ensure that your samples sound as good as the source material, regardless of the pitch you play them at. All filters & effects are calculated at the precision required for them to sound the way intended and oversampling are used when required to prevent aliasing.

Shortcircuit was designed to sound great, all other concerns have been secondary. But don’t take our word for it, download ‘shortcircuit free’ and find out for yourself.

Each voice in shortcircuit features two filter-slots, and the selection isn’t limited to the traditional pick. In addition to the regular lowpass/highpass/bandpass/notch & peak-filters and variations thereof there is an array of filter algorithms (not strictly filters in the traditional sense, but called so because of their location in the audio path) including distortion, parametric/graphic/morphing equalizers,bit-reduction/decimation, gating, limiting, slew-rate distortion, ring-modulation, frequency shifting and phase-modulation (better known as FM). The selection even includes analog-style oscillators that you can mix with the sample.

1642595279_272144358_1728852387324138_3519713107910324472_n

Over 2021, after the succesful release of Surge 1.9, the Surge Synth team undertook an effort to rebuild Surge in JUCE and add a variety of features. This project resulted in the new version of Surge, called ‘Surge XT’.
SYNTH SPECIFICATIONS
GENERAL
Synthesis method: Subtractive hybrid

Each patch contain two scenes which are separate instances of the entire synthesis engine (except effects) that can be used to create layered or split patches.

Quick category-based patch browser with textual search and favorites

Runs on a variety of operating systems, plugin formats, and architectures

FACTORY SOUNDS
2779 patches

614 wavetables

OSCILLATORS
3 oscillators per scene, with 12 versatile oscillator algorithms: Classic, Modern, Wavetable, Window, Sine, FM2, FM3, String, Twist, Alias, S&H Noise and Audio Input.

Classic oscillator is a morphable pulse/saw/dual saw oscillator with a sub-oscillator and hard sync.

Modern oscillator is a mixable saw/pulse/triangle oscillator with an optional sub-oscillator mode for triangle (which can also change to sine or square) and hard sync.

FM2/FM3 oscillators consist of a carrier and 2 or 3 modulators and various options.

String oscillator uses two filtered waveguides to emulate plucked or bowed string sounds.

Twist oscillator is based on a very famous Eurorack macro oscillator, and it offers a myriad of synthesis options in a very simple and quick way.

Most algorithms (except FM2, FM3, Twist and Audio Input) offer up to 16-voice unison at the oscillator level.

Oscillator FM in 3 different configurations and ring modulation between oscillators 1-2 and 2-3.

Most oscillator algorithms (except FM2, FM3, Sine and Alias) are strictly band-limited, yet still cover the entire audible spectrum, delivering a clear, punchy and clean sound.

Noise generator with variable spectrum (available directly in the oscillator mixer).

FILTER BLOCK
Two filter units in 8 different configurations.

Feedback loop available in 7 of those configurations.

Available filter algorithms: Lowpass (12 and 24 dB/oct, each with 3 variations), Legacy Ladder Lowpass (6-24 dB/oct), Vintage Ladder Lowpass (2 variations, each with and without gain compensation), Highpass (12 and 24 dB/oct, each with 3 variations), Bandpass (12 and 24 dB/oct, each with 3 variations), Notch (12 and 24 dB/oct, each with 2 variations), Allpass (3 variations), Comb (positive and negative), S&H.

Open-source additions to our filter algorithms include: K35 and Diode Ladder filter types from Odin 2 synthesizer, 12 and 24 dB/oct multimode filters from OB-Xd, and weird but fascinating Cutoff Warp, Resonance Warp and Tri-Pole filters by Jatin Chowdhury!

Filters can self-oscillate (with excitation) and respond amazingly fast to cutoff frequency changes.

Waveshaper (43 shapes).

MODULATION
12 LFO units available, 6 are per voice and 6 are global for the whole scene.

DAHDSR envelope generators on every LFO.

LFO shapes consist of 7 deformable LFO waveforms, step sequencer, a fully-fledged multi-segment envelope generator (MSEG) with various curves and up to 128 nodes, and last but not the least – a formula modulator which utilizes Lua scripting language to provide completely custom modulator output.

Voice LFOs allow envelope retriggering in step sequencer mode.

Extremely fast and flexible modulation routing. Almost every continuous parameter can be modulated!

EFFECTS
16 effect units arranged as 4 inserts per scene, 4 sends and 4 master effects.

8Dio The New Propanium KONTAKT [FREE] 0 (0)

OTH_TheNewPropanium

The New Propanium (aka Milltone) is a multi-sampled tonal metallic drum that has been redesigned from the ground up! In this update, you get a bunch of new features including: New Effects, The ability to Articulation Stack, A Redesigned GUI & A/B effects mixing as well as newly added Pitch Envelop.

The New Propanium is a highly emotive, metal-based, tongue drum. This tonal based metal drum has certain similarities to the Hang Drum, but has less of that steel drum sound. We recorded the Propanium in several different ways using different percussive techniques, including Finger, Brushes, and Mallets. A single articulation like finger contains 10 velocity layers and 8 round robin pr. layers, so we sampled this unique instrument with incredible detail.

The end result is a gorgeous, emotional percussion instrument that oozes of personality. The fact the drum is tonal and perfectly tuned – means you can use it for so many different purposes. Whether it is stand-alone or as a textural supplement to your other instruments.

Emotional Percussion
The New Propanium is one of the most tremendous sounding tonal percussion instruments. True emotive sounding which is really hard to define, it just grasps the ear and makes emotions come alive. We deep-sampled this incredible instrument and added a large section of extra articulations, including Ambiences, Overtone Patches that contains up 35 velocity layers. We also created specific patches that allow you to play the Pronanium with custom arpeggiators and randomization techniques.

Presets & Control
The New Propanium is incredibly easy to use in our new and updated GUI, that allows you to have the instrument right at your fingertips. The library contains 11 instrument patches, 2,000+ samples and over 30 new “right-out-of-the-box” presets, that is ready to give you new inspiration for your composition.

Front-Faced FX and Chaos FX
The New Propanium contains two parallel FX systems. The first one is our new Front-Faced FX, which allows you to control the most fundamental effects from the front panel (ex. Step Based Filtering, Pitch, Delay, and our new Textural Delay) with the ability to stack your articulations. You can also go deeper with our Chaos FX system, which includes, Phase Modulation, EQ, Bit-Crusher, Distortion, Dual Delays and an additional hall based convolution system on top of our custom Textural Convolution Delays

Requirements
– Full Retail version of Kontakt 5.7+ required / Not compatible with free Kontakt Player

FMino by Gyl-Synths 5 (2)

2SUm43H

FMino is a minimalistic 4 op FM and a simple VA synth in one – my Christmas gift for you.  Smile
In VA mode – using the independent outputs – you can make for example a 3 voices unison + a sub or a 2 osc VA sound + a 2 op FM or what you want…
The oscillators’ sine wave can be morphed to a square-like trapezoid or saw-like shapes by adjusting the self-feedback in the FM mixer (1>1, 2>2,…).
The operators’ amp envelope can be switched to Attack-Release mode from the default Attack-Decay mode.
The Pith LFO has 1 level knob for all ops, while the Pitch AD envelope depth can be independently adjusted op-by-op.
Vastly simplified the tuning of oscillators, only …,-24, -19, -12, -7, 0, 7, 12, 19, 24, … semitone setting are in the 5TH control + there is a FINE knob to create unison effect for the VA mode.
[font=Arial][font=Arial]In the FM MATRIX the big knobs adjust the usual modulation directions (up-to-down), the small knobs are used to the feedback (self or down-tu-up).[/font][/font]
Each operator has a direct output. In te Amp 1-4 section you can adjust the levels and the pan position.
Added a filter to it with bypass, LP, BP and HP modes. The independent Filter AD envelope can be used to modulate the cutoff.
The Effect section has a Chorus, a stereo Delay and a Reverb to add some spice to the sounds.
The Step Arpeggiator has a default octave-based mode, but can be switched to a narrow Seq mode too – with only -5…+5 semis range.
Added an FM VELO knob to it. This affect all level knobs in the FM Matrix.
Lot of Random and Init functions can create crazy results or a starting point to an uncommon sound.
The GUI can be re-sized from 50 to 200% in 10% steps.
The ModWheel adjusts the pre-set Pitch LFO depth, the PitchWheel has -2…-2 semitones range.
Just to check the functions, I made 20 presets. Feel free to modify or delete them and make your own sounds to your music style!  Smile

8Dio The New Hybrid Rhythms KONTAKT [FREE] 0 (0)

Hybrid_Rhythms_OTH

The New Hybrid Rhythms is specialized library dedicated to epic and cinematic grooves.

The library comes with over 950 different epic grooves and an assortment of stems for each groove – offering you full control of each part. Everything is tempo-synced to your DAW and grooves were recorded at 80, 90, 100, 110, 120, 130 and 140 BPM.

The New Hybrid Rhythms is the logical extension to our Hybrid Tools- and Rhythmic Aura Series. The core concept is based on a strong, epic and modern hybrid percussive sound that will just sit in the mix and do its business. The library ranges from absolute, merciless epic grooves to more subtle grooves for the underscoring.

The New Hybrid Rhythms represents a quantum leap in functionality compared to the original Hybrid Rhythms library. We rebuilt everything around a new 3D-render user-interface and with every single feature one could dream of. Whether it is the ability to pulse between different grooves using our new A/B feature.Whether it is the built-in articulation browser, advanced arpeggiation and rhythm making tool or immediate control over speed, pitch envelopes.Whether it is the ability to stack multiple articulations or simply reverse everything with a single click. Whether it is tempo-syncing all the sounds through our gate function or mangle the sounds further through our Chaos FX Engine. It is all there and just a few clicks away.

The New Hybrid Rhythms contains a variety of exclusive features that you won’t find anywhere else, including our new Chaos FX 3.3 Engine, which contains over 100.000 lines of code and includes our CHAOS engine with the ability to randomize, reverse, mix/blend anything you want and manipulated over 1.500 parameters with a single click.

The New Hybrid Rhythms contains a fully rendered 3D User Interface with a variety of new controls, including Tempo-Synced Gate, Reverse, Randomizer, Speed Control, Pitch Envelope, Glide and Offset – all accessible from the front-interface. In addition, you can pulse and crossfade between different grooves using our new A/B functionality. You can also go deeper into our Chaos FX and control everything from Filters, Step-Based Filtering, 3 EQ, Stereo Delay, Bit Crusher, Distortion, Dual-Convolution reverb with convolution FX.

Cinematic Groove Control
The New Hybrid Rhythms contains a variety of advanced and easy-to-use controls – allowing you to completely redesign the many hundreds of grooves. We created a user-interface that gives you everything you need on one single screen. Whether it is a 4-Band EQ, Control over Dynamics, Attack, Release. Whether it is our internal articulation browser – allowing you to find Cinematic Grooves in an instant. Whether it is our tempo-synced speed controls (Half Tempo, Normal, X2 Tempo), Filters or our Advanced Gate Function – allowing you to get the Cinematic Grooves ultra tight to your composition.

Percussive Layering and Ultra Tempo-Sync
The New Hybrid Rhythms unique design allows you to control different parts of the cinematic grooves by their frequency range. We divided all the grooves into stems of Low, Mid and High range – and because everything is 100% tempo-synced – you can freely mix any groove fragment with any other. The New Hybrid Rhythms allows you to mix between 10 different grooves within a single patch. This creates an infinite amount of combinations and allows you to create completely unique, stellar sound epic cinematic grooves in a matter of seconds. We also recommend blending The New Hybrid Rhythms with our extensive Epic Percussion Series, which is used in majority of current Blockbuster Movies, TV-Shows and Video Games.

Complete Control
The New Hybrid Rhythms is all about control – offering you the ability to mix up to 10 different grooves in real-time. We created the user-interface so you have instant access to a large assortment of primary controls, Step-Based Filter Modulation, 4-Band EQ, Custom Gate function that allows you to “tighthen” the sound of the groove. We also added Filters with Cut-Off and Resonation control. Full tempo-sync features, Dynamics, Attack, Release and a control that shows you what key you are in. Textural Convolution Delay – that creates additional delays of convolutions on top of the groove. Options, options, options – yet it all works effortlessly.

New 3.3 FX CHAOS Engine
Our FX CHAOS Engine allows you to STACK, RANDOMIZE, REVERSE and CHAOS any or ALL patches with a single click. It is one of the most extreme feature in The New Hybrid Rhythms. The FX CHAOS Engine allows you make over 1.500 sample parameters randomize with one click, while also randomizing our new 8Dio FX System. So both the sample content and the assigned FX will be randomized in one glorious cocktail – all with one click.
