AudioThing miniBit

AudioThing has announced miniBit, an upcoming a 8-bit/chiptune style synthesizer plug-in that emulates the sound of 80s game consoles and retrocomputers.

It features a main oscillator with 10 waveforms paired with a sub oscillator (a square wave pitched one octave below).

The waveforms are not bandlimited and will produce aliasing. Furthermore, using the built-in bitcrusher, you can create even more noisy and retro sounds.

  • Sub Oscillator.
  • Poly and Mono mode with Glide.
  • 2-poles Low Pass Filter.
  • Delay and BitCrusher effects.

Rhythmic Robot releases NanoMod 8-bit for Kontakt

Rhythmic Robot has launched NanoMod 8-bit, a free instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Rhythm Robot NanoMod 8-bit

NanoMod 8-bit is a simple but versatile Kontakt synthesiser based on vintage 8-bit polysynths, featuring an “intelligent” interface that allows the user to adjust multiple parameters with single controls. It is offered as part of the KVR Developers’ Challenge 2014.

NanoMod 8-bit brings the simplicity of Rhythmic Robot’s NanoMod interface to bear on the crusty, gritty, aliased sounds of classic 8-bit synthesisers of the early to mid 80s. Using source waves taken from vintage Ensoniq hardware and a front-end incorporating convolved Wasp and MS20 filters, this NanoMod is aimed squarely at big, powerful polysynth sounds – everything from warm and evolving pads to screaming leads.

The library is a free download, released as an entry to the KVR Developer Challenge 2014.
