Xoxos has announced the release of Element, a free sampler/sample player instrument for Windows.
Xoxos Element sample player with dark skin (click image for light skin).
not really a sampler oc, it’s a wav player, but people often call them samplers..
loads one sample, does some loop modulation stuff, prolly more or less the same as samplers like this (eg. helios). loads 8 and 16 bit mono or stereo wavs.. and not in a fancy way, though it loads all the samples i’ve got. this was produced because i released some open source modules for synthedit to help people develop wav players.. i figured i ought to wrap one as a vst.
Wrap mode looping (‘normal looping’) with crossfade.
Bounce mode looping (forward-reverse).
Two crossfade modes: fixed time (up to 1s) or loop relative (up to entire length of loop).
4 interpolation modes: floor (‘none’), linear, cubic and hermite.
Loop position can modulate filter cutoff.
Filter modes (low, band, high, cut, peak in moog, svf or biquad).
Modulating start/end (loop or otherwise) reverses playback if end is lower than start.
xoxos has released Piamo, an elementarily modeled virtual piano, providing variable performance timbrality in a gentle emulation leant to abstraction.
“What would a simple physically modeled piano sound like?”
Piamo (“I love Pi”) provides the performance benefits of modeling in a low computational form.
The fundamental elements of the piano are modeled to create a timbrally expressive instrument less convincing than the excellent commercial emulations.
Piamo is available as a VST instrument for Windows PC. It is included with Pling3.
A functional demo is can be downloaded here (limited to three voices of polyphony, the full version is distributed with 8 voices).
Elder Thing by xoxos is a new synthesizer VST plug-in for Windows.
Inspiration for a waveguide model based on Lovecraft’s ululating Elder Thing came shortly after the development of Fauna VST. This more complex vocal tract includes a reflective multiport junction. It is a rather eclectic instrument.
The vocal tract includes a monophonic input for processing external sounds. The lightly limited demo is non-expiring. Would that the same could be said for human sanity.
Elder Thing VST is available to purchase for the introductory price of $20 USD, or $30 USD bundled with the Amboea VST.
