BeepStreet releases Sunrizer subtractive synth for Mac

Related: , , Posted in news on Mar 04, 2015 - comment 0 comments

BeepStreet has released a Mac AU version of Sunrizer, the subtractive synth that first debuted on iPad.

BeepStreet Sunrizer

Sunrizer is built upon a familiar subtractive synth design – but with a distinct character and a host of unique features. It starts with two oscillators and two sub-oscillators that deliver all of the basic waveforms and a perfect emulation of JP-8000 “supersaw”, with pulse width, frequency and ring modulation plus a lush unison mode.

The oscillators are fed into two powerful filters with serial or parallel routing, offering traditional low-, high- and band-pass modes as well as comb, resonator, waveshaper, and frequency shifter algorithms – and more. To set all this in motion, Sunrizer has two ADSR envelopes and two LFO generators that can modulate virtually any parameter.

Sunrizer features

  • Bespoke synth engine with 24 voice polyphony and very low processor load.
  • Two oscillators with multiple waveform types, hard-sync, pulse width modulation.
  • Oscillator mixer with ring modulator and separate noise source.
  • Per-oscillator unison function with variable detune and spread.
  • Two separate filter units with serial or parallel operation and 16 different algorithms each: low-, high- and band-pass, notch, comb, formant I/II, all-pass, power low- and band-pass, waveshaper, resonator, resampler, low-pass + resampler, frequency shifter, analog low-pass.
  • Two ADSR envelope generators.
  • Two LFO generators with sine, triangle, saw, square, sample & hold and random
  • waveforms; variable phase, fade-in time and different trigger modes.
  • Master effects including chorus, phaser, rotor, EQ, delay and reverb.
  • Arpeggiator with deep sequencing capabilities.
  • Chord memory function.
  • A-B parameter morph feature: essentially two synth patches in one.
  • Factory sound bank with over 400 preset patches; full patch compatibility with the iPad version.

Sunrizer for Mac (AU) is available for purchase for the introductory price of $50 USD/45 EUR + VAT in EU (regular $80 USD).

Sonarworks intros Reference 3 studio calibration software

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Mar 04, 2015 - comment 0 comments

Sonarworks has launched Reference 3, a studio calibration software for Windows and Mac.

Sonarworks Reference 3

After 3 years and 1M USD spent on development, Sonarworks has just released their newest speaker calibration software for sound studio professionals and home recording enthusiasts. Currently the most accurate speaker and room calibration software on the market, Sonarworks Reference 3 empowers studio pros of every caliber to achieve reference sound at an affordable price point.

Reference 3 is packed with unique and patent-pending technologies as well as automation that enables anyone to do the complete studio calibration process with a visual step-by-step workflow in less than 15 minutes. Reference 3 utilizes a proprietary Perceived Acoustic Power Frequency Response (PAPFR) technology that measures and analyzes sound the way humans actually hear it. During the measurement process, the software automatically detects the microphone position in the room, making the process much easier and the results more consistent. The processing plugin has a filter engine that is specifically designed for audio calibration in a studio setting with a choice of linear, mixed, and minimum phase filters to suit the task at hand.

The Reference 3 measurement software is currently available for Mac for 269 EUR/$345 USD, bundled version with a custom calibrated measurement microphone. A download only license is 229 EUR/$299 USD.

Windows PC users can use version 2.2, which will be upgraded free of charge to 3.0 in Spring 2015. The DAW plug-in is available for both Mac OS X and Windows.
