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 announced a Springwater Sale, offering selected plug-ins at a limited time discount.
Buy Spring2 and Water VST for $15 and select any two other VST for free!
This means you can select Elder Thing and Amboea ($20 and $15) or plugins normally included in bundles, such as Radian and Aurora. That’s right, it’s spring, and that means it’s time to pay my website hosting!
xoxos has released Spring2, a spring reverb emulation effect plug-in for Windows.
Spring2 uses conventional signal processing techniques to model the well-known spring reverb effect. While significantly more CPU power would be required to achieve closer emulation using this method, especially to model the dispersive characteristics more accurately, this version is intended as a compromise between what is possible and what is sensible, and the impulse response of this effect is generally similar to that of a physical spring.
Spring2 allows the length and dispersive frequency of up to three springs to be configured and includes a non-linearity to model the amplification transformer.
Spring2 is available to purchase as a VST effect plugin for Windows, priced at $10 USD.
xoxos has announced the release of Naive Lead, a polyphonic synthesizer instrument plugin for Windows.
Naive Lad is a concept synth.. oversampling is used to antialias (to an extent) trivially rendered oscillators. This may offer some benefit in contrast to other methods (especially if you like aliasing!). This VST is presented to offer some insight into dsp to promote informed application of synthesis. If you know what you’re using, you’ll know when it’s best used.
Up to five filter algorithms are available (fast, Stilson/Smith Moog, Karlsen, SV, biquad) for four modes. The licensed version has 6 voices of polyphony (or more at request). Two banks of presets contributed by ten sound designers are included.
Naive Lead for Windows (VST) is available to purchase bundled with W VST for $10 USD.
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.
