AIR intros The Riser synth-based transition designer

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Aug 26, 2014 - comment 0 comments

AIR Music Technology has introduced The Riser, a synthesizer instrument designed for creating powerful transitions with electronic dance music producers and DJs in mind.

AIR The Riser

A powerful, synth-based instrument, The Riser features all of the tools you need to compose heart-stopping transitions in one intuitive user-interface. In seconds, you can construct rises, falls, swells, fades, and more, based on our coveted sound synthesis technology. For instant inspiration, The Riser includes 300 pro-grade presets that you can edit, deconstruct, copy, mangle, and implement into your tracks.

Transitions add suspense, hype, drama, and movement to your music. Cymbal swells and reversed instruments were go-to transitions for years, until the DAW pioneered fast and flexible audio editing, paving the way for complex sound effects. When combined with synths and other audio shaping tools, transitions completed their metamorphosis from science to art. Until now, this process has convoluted and time-intensive, taking attention away from the overall project itself. The composer spent more time trying to get plugins, virtual sample players, hardware effects, sound modules, and other gear to play nice with each other – and that was before hitting “record”.

The Riser features

  • Transition designer optimized for electronic music production, scoring, and remix work.
  • 3 editable oscillators; sweep, noise, and chord.
  • 3 LFOs; free-running, tempo-synced, and Pumper.
  • 23 filter types including multi-pole and phase shift.
  • 300 professionally designed, editable presets.
  • Randomizer generates patches at the click of a button.
  • Invert mode creates complementary patches by instantly changing transition direction.
  • Easy MIDI-Learn Mode; just click and twist to assign parameters to your favorite MIDI controller hardware.
  • Pumper effect creates pulsating movement.
  • Configurable delay and reverb with wet/dry processing; 4 reverb types.
  • Adjustable panning movements and master stereo width control.
  • 64-bit AU; 32- and 64-bit VST/AAX; Mac or Windows.

The Riser will cost $79.99 USD. A full version 15-day demo is available for 48 hours only.

Zynaptiq releases UNCHIRP Codec Artifact Removal & Transient Retrieval

Related: , , , , , , , , Posted in news on Aug 25, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Zynaptiq has announced the release of UNCHIRP, a codec artifact removal and transient retrieval effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Zynaptiq UNCHIRP

UNCHIRP is a plug-in for removing the most obnoxious artifacts associated with lossy audio encoding and other FFT based processes, such as spectral de-noising.

Reduce musical noise, suppress high frequency chirping (also known as underwater sound, warbling or the tweeties), fix transient smearing, and restore lost high frequencies – UNCHIRP does it all in one go.

If you need to salvage poorly encoded music, speech that has gone through a low bit rate uplink, material that has been de-noised too strongly, or footage recorded with consumer mobile devices – or if you simply want to add contour and vibrance to already great sounding recordings – UNCHIRP is your (only) friend.

UNCHIRP features

  • Suppression of high frequency “chirping” artifacts.
  • Reduction of “musical noise” artifacts.
  • Transient Synthesis to augment or replace smeared, over-limited or otherwise compromised transients.
  • Psycho-Acoustically optimized Treble Boost circuit with Enhance and Excite modes.
  • Break-Point Curve Editor based frequency-dependent processing.
  • Side-only algorithm mode for working with joint-stereo encoded material.
  • HD algorithm mode for increased quality processing with higher CPU load (off-line processing recommended).
  • SYNC parameter allows processing to be synchronized to signal transients for increasing clarity.
  • Output limiter for unsupervised use in batch processing applications.
  • Highly time-efficient workflow and UI.

UNCHIRP for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX/AudioSuite) is available for purchase for $399 USD / 369 EUR (incl. VAT in EU).

u-he announces Satin v1.2 micro fix & latest builds of plugins

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Aug 25, 2014 - comment 0 comments

u-he has announced the release of build 2577 of Satin version 1.2, an update to the tape simulation & tape delay effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

u-he Satin

A small but pesky feedback bug made itself known after we released Satin 1.2 (build 2570) last week, requiring some attention.

A micro-fix that corrects the problem is now available. The version number will remain at 1.2.0, but the build number is updated to 2577. You can find the build number along the top of the interface next to the Satin logo.

The latest version of Satin is available for download from the u-he website.

u-he plugins updated

u-he has also announced updates for its other plug-ins.

The ongoing work of improving and updating the u-he product line continues, and this time we have a wheelbarrow full of updates.

There are new builds for 11 products: ACE, Bazille, Diva, Filterscape, MFM2, Podolski, TripleCheese, Uhbik, Zebra, The Dark Zebra and ZebraCM… whew! As you can imagine, the changelog for such an update is immense, so we’ll just mention the most noteworthy fixes here:

  • fixed crash when changing presets at high buffer sizes
  • resolved Bazille crash related to FX
  • fixed a few note hangers
  • fixed a few MIDI issues
  • fixed issues where UI was slow

We have tested these builds extensively and believe they are very stable and we encourage you to update – especially if you experienced problems with previous builds – but please remember they are still considered “beta”.

The builds are available to download from the u-he forum at KVR Audio.
