Majoris Free by Fanan Team 0 (0)

maj_free_1

Majoris Free is Majoris’es little brother. It’s a unique synth based arranger organ that can enhance creativity and help songwriters and composers to quickly compose new ideas and melodies. It emulates the automatic accompaniment organs method (like in korg pa900 and etc.) and powers a built-in drums & bass + acc oscillators to play styles that can be programmed by the user and played as a style with no additional MIDI routing, internal MIDI connection or MIDI cables straight from your instrument channel in the DAW.

The method

Like any other hardware arranger organ, Majoris splits the physical keyboard into 2 zones. The right zone plays solo while The left zone controls the played style’s chords which can be switched in fingered or one finger mode. Majoris Free has 6 variations slots per style include intro, main variations, fills and end. The variations can be controlled by any MIDI controller or even with MIDI pads or the keyboard notes. Even the “jump to” destinations can be re-programmed.

The internal sound generators

Majoris Free uses synths and a drum sampler as it’s own sound generators. The drum sampler’s kits can be deeply programmed and edited and the bass and the solo synths are quite basic but easy to operate. The style sequencer which create new styles uses almost the same programming method as our Callisto. You can program both minor and majors variations of your style and save each with it’s unique tempo or synced to the DAW.

An apology!

Since this project is too huge to count all it’s nuances and mini features, we recommend novice arranger users to first read the principles of the arranger organs. Sorry we can’t count them all, but we believe this tool is quite intuitive with a reasonable shallow learning curve, so please, make a little research before you dive into it.

Main features list:

  • 6 variations drums, bass and ACC styles slots with major and minor chords per variation.
  • One finger (jumps from minor to major with double clicking) or full fingered modes.
  • Dedicated style’s 10 slots drum sampler with built-in effects.
  • Dedicated style’s bass synth with built in effects and ducking option.
  • Dedicated solo synth with 3 variations per style and on-GUI switching buttons.
  • Transition sensitivity button.
  • Mute button.
  • Hold variation button.
  • split keyboard knob.
  • global and independent transpose knob.
  • Master, style and solo volume knobs.
  • “Jump to” menu selectors.
  • Dedicated or synced tempo.
  • Full automation.
  • Auto cymbal crash feature.
  • Internal “Callisto” style programming sequencer.
  • Visual info bar.
  • Resizable GUI.

Differences between Majoris Free and Majoris

Majoris Free is basically a complete free edition of Majoris that has few limitations: It has 6 variation instead of the 10 in the senior edition, it lack the solo MIDI out connection to 3th party VST’is in the D.A.W and it lacks the separate 6 audio outputs to individual D.A.W channels. Other than that, both versions share same structures, same styles and additional information (and therefore the same installer as well).

plugin_window

BabyDrummer is a versatile and easy-to-use VST3 pattern-based drum sequencer.

You design your patterns, make some variations and set the play order. You will be surprised how little effort is needed to make a great rhythm. You can design and play back your drum patterns in an arbitrary order.

BabyDrummer does not have a built in drum sampler so you need to use one in conjunction with it.

Monica 3 by Fanan Team 0 (0)

c1

Monica 3 is the successor to Monica evo. An analog dual-layered 90’s style synth with 2 completely different aggressive and incredibly high dynamic range oscillators. The first oscillator is wavetable based with 50 wavetables + additional 50 wavtables for morphing. The second is an old style 8 waveforms pad oscillator that emulates the 90′ type monster pads. The oscillators work on dual-layered basis and have each own separate controls, synthesis section, chords driven pattern sequencer and some more new features.

The Arp

Monica Evo is armed with an extremely flexible 16 steps built-in chords driven arppeggiator based on played note’s position with it’s own dedicated pattern file manager and vast of tweaking options including time signature, gate, speed, the total number of steps and DAW syncing.

The modulation options

Monica 3 has 2 different modulation options. The first offers 6 traditional LFO’s, 3 per oscillator, each with 50 possible wavetables and BPM syncing option. The second option is MMM – MIDI clock motorized modulation. The MMM allows motorizing knobs and controls and by that, creating interesting motion effects.

The effects

Monica 3 is equipped with 6 effects:

  • up to 8 voices unison.
  • Cabinet.
  • Wah.
  • Chorus.
  • Phaser.
  • Delay.

Each effect has 2 separate send channels, one for each oscillator (it can also work in global mode).

Reaktor Sapphire Metasequencer by Yofiel 0 (0)

sapphire

Originally sold on Heavens*onEarth, Sapphire has been widely acknowledged as the single most powerful MIDI sequencer instrument ever created. Many people have heard it create different musical phrases on the TV series ’30 Something, ‘ thinking it was a ‘real musician.’ Well, the composer simply set Sapphire up to generate different theme variations depending when he played only two notes.

Briefly, the ensemble’s 16 sequencer channels can intermodulate each other’s notes, velocity, clock rate, and/or bar patterns. Intermodulation can be clocked or single-stepped in layered, fugued, recursive, and 1-shot modes. Other abilities include note filtering and clipping, chord generation, note mapping to musical keys, input recording, MIDI I/O crossmapping, and clock jitter. note sequences to different instruments, and clock jitter control, on the B panelset.

Reaktor 5+ is required.

EVOX Calypso is an experimental sound, performance-oriented virtual musical instrument that is designed for creating cinematic ambient soundscapes, sound structures, and atmospheric and ethereal textures, as well as more traditional synthesizer sounds that can be layered to create a tremendous variety of spatial sounds. EVOX Calypso sounds extend to unattainable distances, immersing you in unexpected worlds. The tool includes more than 128 ready-to-mix presets.
EVOX Calypso is Free/Donate. The Free version has some limitations. A version available to supporters includes a package of additional presets for synthesizers, effects, and track models.No installation is necessary, and it works without problems in Windows XP and Windows 10 (32/64-bit). (EVOX Calypso is 32-bit.)
EVOX Calypso is an standalone tool application for Windows that employs Wavetable / Granular synthesis in two separate and programmable layers each with extensive FX, Modulation Matrix and Chord Sequencer modules which provide the user with maximum control over unique sound creation.
As an experimental synthesizer, it radically departs from standard type instruments and is meant to be used as a laboratory for the exploration of new sonic and timbral creations. Playing EVOX Calypso is not like playing a conventional synthesizer, it does not have a keyboard and MIDI GUI like conventional synthesizers. Sound manipulation is carried out by built-in modulators and sequencers.
EVOX Calypso also has an 8-track sequencer with up to 64 steps for each track. Each track is essentially a separate synthesizer that can be recorded and played back in sync with the other tracks. Mini compositions can be made by merging these tracks together.
