Admiral Quality Poly-Ana

Admiral Quality has announced a limited time sale, offering a 66.6% discount on its synthesizer instruments for Windows and Mac.

We hardly ever do this, but in celebration of the coming holiday and, frankly, because the Admiral is hungry and trying to keep a roof over his head and his internet on, we’re going to offer our biggest discount yet until the end of the month. Prices of Poly-Ana and L’il Poly-Ana are slashed to 1/3 normal! That’s right, until May 1, 2014, a positively evil 66.6% off!

We also have some new products and updates coming very soon, including support for x64 on OSX. So stay tuned, and please help spread the word about our sale. It will help us get those other projects completed over the coming days and weeks.

The sale ends May 1st, 2014.

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Apr 17, 2014 - comment 0 comments

HoRNet Plug-Ins has launched HoRNet DeeLay, a vintage digital dub delay effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

HoRNet DeeLay

The vintage button gives the HoRNet DeeLay that typical early 90s sound where digital was still imperfect and with a character of its own.

The DeeLay can make endless feedback loops and changing the delay time changes the pitch of the buffer creating funny and interesting noises, the time parameter can be modulated with an LFO allowing the creation of futuristic wobbling sounds.

Since the delay is digital it has all the robotic artifacts of modulated digital delays instead of the smooth action of an analog emulated delay.

Try it on vocals, guitars or anything that needs space, the HoRNet DeeLay will surprise you with it’s spacey yet focused sound.

HoRNet DeeLay features

  • Delay time up to 5000ms.
  • Sync mode from 1/16th to 1bar.
  • Capable of endless delay generation.
  • LFO from 0.1Hz to 10Hz.
  • Time modulation.
  • Vintage mode with 12bit ADC emulation.
  • Mac OS X (>=10.5 intel only) and Windows support.
  • 64bit compatibility both on Mac and Windows.
  • Audio Units VST2.4, VST3 and RTAS format.

HoRNet DeeLay is available for purchase for 7.99 EUR.

Native Instruments releases Rise & Hit for Kontakt

Native Instruments has announced the release of Rise & Hit, the first instrument dedicated to creating thrilling tension and suspense with build-ups and climactic hits.

Native Instruments Rise & Hit

RISE & HIT uses an extensive range of over 8 GB of exclusively recorded and studio-produced sounds. An easy-to-use interface offers detailed editing with integrated effects and mastering tools for endless sound design capabilities. RISE & HIT runs in KONTAKT 5 or the free KONTAKT 5 PLAYER.

Central to RISE & HIT is its extensive sample library of expertly–produced sounds. From a full orchestra and heavily processed field recordings, to other-worldly synthesized and hybrid sounds, the library offers an incredible range of sonic material found nowhere else. Over 4000 samples are used in 700 single-layer and 250 multi-layer pre-designed sounds for creating hair-raising build-ups consisting of a swelling “riser” and a shorter, climactic “hit”. Each sound comes in four separate lengths to drastically alter the rise length, plus a transient “whoosh” hit option easily match any score without losing sound quality along the way. Up to four sounds can be layered at a time to create highly complex textures.

RISE & HIT offers sound designers a comprehensive toolkit with an intuitive interface for quick workflow and results. All features are easily accessible through tabbed panels and can be customized within the instrument, saving time and sparking inspiration at every step of the creative process. Readily available are a wide selection of effects to add character and radically alter sounds. Reverb and delay add sonic depth, while 26 custom filters allow quick frequency design for when inspiration strikes. 29 spatial, dynamic, and distortion effects, offer advanced control of sound stage, size, and texture.

For further customization, RISE & HIT boasts an integrated modulation engine designed to fully automate layer parameters. Though preset modulation curves are available, parameters can be adjusted using envelopes, for pinpoint accuracy and vigorous results. Once a build-up is ready to be finalized, a suite of additional mastering effects such as compression, saturation, and equalization can be applied to fine-tune the sound.

Key to the conception and production of RISE & HIT was sound master Uli Baronowsky of Galaxy Instruments. Already a trusted NI partner, Uli now brings his proven mastery of high quality sampling and sound reinforcement to the immense sonic variety found in RISE & HIT.

The Rise & Hit library is available for purchase for $149 USD / 149 EUR / £129 GBP. It runs in KONTAKT 5 and the free KONTAKT 5 PLAYER.
