Aalto Solo Beat Special Edition

Beat is offering a free copy of the Aalto Solo software synthesizer by Madrona Labs at its Facebook page.

Der Aalto Solo aus der Feder von Madrona-Labs-Mastermind Randy Jones entpuppt sich als ganz besonderer Klangerzeuger, der seine Stärken bei experimentellen Sounds und Modulations-Orgien ausspielt. Dass er sich dafür intern fast nach Belieben neu „verdrahten“ lässt, setzt der Kreativität kaum Grenzen. Mit Oszillator und nachfolgendem Waveguide gelingen charismatische Sounds; Hüllkurven, LFO, Filter und Sequenzer runden die Klangformung ab.

Aalto Solo is a one voice version of the Aalto semi-modular software synthesizer with an innovative, patchable UI, distinctive sounds, and a charming personality.

The Beat Special Edition of Aalto Solo is available to download for its Facebook fans

Zenhiser releases Massive Techno Presets soundset

Zenhiser Massive Techno Presets

Zenhiser has announced Massive Techno Presets, a collection of 100 techno presets for the Massive software synthesizer by Native Instruments.

We’re covering all the main genres with our NI Massive presets and until now Techno is one genre that desperately needed an obliterating array of uber cool presets.

With that in mind we locked our techno producer in the studio, stocked him up with Ramen noodles for a month, two pairs of his tech geek glasses and an online subscription to Music Tech Magazine. One month later and two amazing things were created in that studio, a superbly manicured sailor beard (which we didn’t expect) and 100 Techno presets that simply blew us away (which we expected).

The soundset costs $25 USD.

First out is the FREE BitterSweet v3 Transient Designer, and the Elixir v3 True Peak Limiter, and now when we have the framework ready, we are aiming at having all our software ported and available within Q1 this year.

The v3 framework improves the performance dramatically (measured 500-1000 percent improvement for Elixir depending on host environment!) and for the graphic rendering the v3 framework includes our GPU-efficient 2D/3D graphic engine, first introduced in the Pure Analyzer System, based on the OpenGL standard optimizing the audio-to-visual experience utilizing the GPU on the computer’s built in graphics card.

The update to the 64-bit compatible and to the AAX Native version (AU/VST/AAX Native) is Free of charge for all current owners of Elixir, and can be downloaded when logged in to the customer download area on our website. If you’re not using Elixir yet, a dongle free trial version is available on our download page as well.
