scandiclavia_ver_2_a1

Scandiclavia 2 is a bigger and richer successor to the first Scandiclavia virtual analog nordish organ model.  It yet works as an open mixer format like the previous, but now with 7 waveforms per channel, enhanced sound path and some more new exciting features.

The Engine

The main sound engine uses the same 32bit top quality oscillators as the previous, with the highest possible dynamic range and 7 waveforms per oscillator. The waveforms emulate the great Nord organs of all times and can be mixed together and create a vast of sound colors, textures and articulations.

Scandiclavia oscillators also include gleam effect, a user friendly global hipass-lopass filters per oscillator, a rotary speaker emulation, drawbars, hammer generator (click) and a rich effects rack.

Nuances everywhere

ScandiClavia got an exclusive hammer manager which manages the percussive effect  of the organ’s hammer. You can choose from 7 types from dull to noisy and determine every little nuance of the hammer.

The effects

Scandiclavia also offers a full section of built in effects (a new cabinet effect with 4 different cabinets emulation, chorus, phaser, wha-wha, reverb and delay).

ScandiClavia is free. Enjoy!

NB01 – distortion/sustainer by Noizebox – KVR Challenge 0 (0)

NB01 – distortion/sustainer is the first plugin from Noizebox Industries. Made for KVR DC21.

Inspired by a circuit from an ancient guitar pedal that was originally intended as a soft-distortion-sustainer for guitars. Giving that singing sustain without a lot of harsh distortion. This is a modern take on the same circuit, not a straight up clone, more of a work-alike inspired by the original circuit. Though a fair amount of work has gone into modelling the peculiar anomalies of an overdriven, asymmetrically clipping, amplifier circuit with a FET-based feedback loop that works like a crude compressor, prone to overcompensating.

NB01 adds control over the amount of compression applied and the response time. It its fastest setting it is not really a compressor as it starts altering the waveform of the incoming sound. It also add tone controls for more versatility in shaping the sound. The tone controls are a mix of pre and post filtering that makes them interact with the overdriven amplifier circuit in interesting ways.

The signal chain is processed with 4x times oversampling with high quality elliptical downsampling filters to limit aliasing and accurate modelling. Real time parameter smoothing for glitch-free operation. Written in native C++ for performance and small footprint. Hardware accelerated, vector based UI.

Use it as overdrive before a guitar amp plugin for a sweet, compressed and singing tone. Preferably with a bit of midrange boost to cut through. It’s is also perfect for destroying drum loops. Either by rolling off the bass and making the compressor slam the transients.

Or by cranking up the low end for really making the compressor duck like crazy on the kicks, by setting the response time to moderately fast, you can tweak the gain knob to find a sweetspot where the bass triggers the compression in just the right way.

Or try it on any other material, lofi vocals, adding grime to basslines or any other creative ways of destroying sounds.

Controls:

  • Gain: Sets the gain of the circuit, higher values produce more distortion.
  • Compression amount: Sets the amount of compression applied. There’s a lot of range here. At extreme settings the compression will be negative, i.e. a 3 dB volume increase will result in more than 3 dB gain reduction. This can cause a bubbling/pumping/grinding artefacts at some combinations of high reaction speed and high compression when the circuit switches back and forth between overcompensation. This is not a bug, it’s a feature and lot’s of weird distortions can be discovered here.
  • Compression Speed: Sets the reaction time of the compressor feedback, higher values create more distortion as the compressor starts to chew on the waveform rather that the envelope of the sound.
  • Stereo: This switches between Fully independent stereo processing, stereo processing with linked compressors and mono processing.
  • Tonelomidhigh: Tone controls are fairly straight forward. All controls at 12 o clock means a reasonably flat response. Tone controls are also a combination of pre and post clipping, which creates more interesting textures.
  • Scope: Just for amusement really. but it’s fun to watch.
  • Master level: Sets the output volume for balancing the mix.

EVOX Calypso by 2MGT/Metamusic Generative Tools 0 (0)

 

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.

Quilcom Mystery 0 (0)

The Quilcom Mystery synthesiser was designed to explore a specific type of technique whereby an additive synth (with sub) can have the amplitude of each partial modulated by its own independent polyphonic LFO. Many settings can be randomised manually or via a trigger generator, and there are two identical sound generators for nice stereo effects and a fuller sound.

The technique seems to be most useful for pad and soundscape making, so that’s what the presets focus on.

Try it on headphones, and I hope you like it!

Lo-Fi Keys by Clark Audio 0 (0)

Lo-Fi Keys is a processed piano rompler inspired by today’s modern Lo-Fi music.

This small VST / AU plugin gives you the ability to lay out soft & dusty piano chord progressions and melodies.

Lo-Fi Keys comes with 10 sampled piano instruments. To create each preset we first started by sampling actual pianos. These pianos include a classic grand piano, upright piano, and electric keyboard. After recording the instruments we lightly edited and processed each sample. The processing technique included applying vinyl and tape textures to emulate a vintage sound. Finally, each sample showcases the characteristics found in today’s most popular lo-fi piano beats.

Yumbu 2 by Fanan Team 0 (0)

Yumbu 2 is wav / mp3 slot driven drum sampler.

It brings up lightning speed drum-kits loading and fast one stage control, fitted for live usage. Now, with better control, both mp3 and WAV. format support, faster workflow and only 0.5 sec. loading times for new core kit, Yumbu 2 is one of the quickest drum samplers in the market.

Yumbu 2 uses 10 (.wav, mp3) file sample slots to build 10 drum components drum-kits. According to this approach, every slot can be anything, from kicks to snares or cymbals or you name it. Each slot is triggered by its own unique MIDI note which noted on its slot button. For instance, slot 48 is triggered by note number 48 in the MIDI keyboard (c2). The samples menu is divided into 14 categories, including a wide range of drum-kit components types. Each type button (kicks, snares, claps, etc.) is directing to it’s own sample library folder which located at “C:UsersyournameDocumentsFananteamYumbuUSER”. Each sample slot has also a room for user’s imported samples which can be added manually to the “user” folder. Yumbu 2 comes with 30 full drum-kits to start with.

 

Yumbu 2 has a built-in mixer that allows you to tweak any sample separately. You can use the EQ, change the pitch, add a random pitch manipulation to every sample, pan and you can use our pitch based round robin effect which has a wide control ability on the final sound. The mixer is also armed with 3 master effects (compressor, reverb, delay) with a brand new unique effect called “F.R” which allows full scale frequency control over the wet signal. You can use the effect by sending a fx amount from the “master fx” knob on every channel or you can override the per cell sending and just send them directly to the master effect.

Yumbu 2 loads drumkits extremely fast, only 0.5 sec for full loading. It can set “sample start and “sample end” points with MIDI assignable knobs and it also allows you to tweak the active keyboard’s octaves starting points. Yumbu 2 uses 24 presets drumkit banks. Each preset represents a full drumkit containing all the components and settings.

Yumbu 2 is armed with brand new morphing system which can blend any 2 drum elements together (which can create tons of new fresh drum sounds). The morph system can also play with the blended element’s pitch and increase the invention of new drum sounds like never before.

Each channel in Yumbu 2 is armed with dedicated modulation effects which allow adding beautiful nuances and textures to each drum element separately. There is a yowling phaser effect, a delay and the new Zelda filter which can completely change the audio materials native character and morph it into a new interesting sound.

  • 10 drum sample slots per kit.
  • 14 drum element banks with full 30 drum-kits that adjusted to wide range of pop and EDM genres.
  • Morphing system for blending any 2 drum elements together.
  • Automation file manager.
  • 4 additional WAV. pages in the element menu for user’s WAV. files.
  • MIDI assignable startend points manager.
  • Master effects.
  • Graphical MIDI keyboard with assignable keyboard starting points.
  • Full virtual mixer with gain knobs, master effect send knobs, pitch knobs, random pitch manager knobs, round robin and pan knobs, master compressor, delay and reverb effects armed with a unique F.R. feature.
  • MIDI route options (internal or sent to the DAW through MIDI channels).
  • Scalable and customizable GUI.
  • Dedicated modulation effects including phaser, delay and Zelda filter.

discoDSP OB-XD v2.4 x64 VST VST3 AU WiN MAC LiNUX [FREE] 0 (0)

OB-Xd is based on the Oberheim OB-X. It attempts to recreate its sound and behavior, but as the original was very limited in some important ways a number of things were added or altered to the original design. OB-Xd was designed to sound as good and as rich as the original. It implements micro random detuning which is a big part of that sound.

What’s new

• 7x faster GUI controls.
• Linux build.
• Standalone app.
• Signed and notarized installers.
• Updated JUCE framework to 5.4.7 for better stability and compatibility.
• Updated Banks with 2.0 compatibility.
• Ilkka Rosma Dark Theme.
• macOS Catalina support.
• MIDI CC Learn.
• MIDI CC support.
• Parameter refactor.
• XML based skinning.
• HiDPI (Retina) ready GUI themes.

What’s new
• Preset browser bar (switchable using MENU button).
• Added FXP preset and FXB bank files drag and drop support.
• New MIDI CC XML config menu.
• Enhanced MIDI learn. Bindings will be saved to Documents > discoDSP > OB-Xd > MIDI > Custom.xml file for all instances.
• Enhanced Standalone app.
• Fixed preset sync issue.
• Fixed LEARN button led click issue.

Overview

While not copying originals, some of the features were taken to a better point. Continuous blendable multimode filter (HP-Notch(BP)-HP in 12 dB mode and 4-1 pole in 24 dB mode). Also, like many synths of the OB-X’s generation, the OB-Xd has no internal effects so its sounds and textures can be greatly enhanced by the use of additional processing like chorus, reverb, delay, etc.

Thanks to 2Dat for the original OB-Xd and Soshi Studio for giving the rights to continue this wonderful product. Also thanks to all KVR artists for making the amazing skins!. OB-Xd Desktop has no restrictions and is free to use. Buy to support further development, thank you! Source code is available under GPL license at GitHub.

  • Gala XL has a new feature called “note slider” which allows creating note sliding sequence effect

Gala is based on an improved physical modeling code of a virtual analog oscillators that work in an open mixer format and mixes up 4 independent top crafted wave-forms with an incredible dynamic range and generates 28 instruments ensemble emulation, each with it’s own size and color which can mix any 4 instruments together and create rich multi combinations, articulations and textures.

Gala XL instruments:

  • 3 pop strings.
  • 5 oriental strings.
  • 4 cinematic-pop brasses.
  • 4 clarinets.
  • 4 accordions.
  • 4 oriental organs.
  • 4 saxophones.

Remote Violin (nano) by Alejandro Magaña Martinez[Kontakt] 0 (0)

Introducing a brand new Kontakt instrument: Remote Violin nano!

While this is not the first string instrument Acousmatic Sounds has built, it is the first to be released to the public.

The Remote Violin nano is cozy, screechy and oddly intimate. You will find four different sliders and two knobs, all CC assignable, that control the direct audio (recorded by a regular iPhone), two “interference” signals and a reverb created by a less than ideal reverb pedal!

Depending on where the Remote Violin nano will sit in your mix, the high end can be harsh at times, nothing that a low pass filter cannot fix. However, if you are after a more lo-fi feel, you can let the instrument’s natural top end shine through.

Two panning knobs give you extra control over this instrument, making it easier ad more interesting to create string textures and pads.
