Positive Grid announces BIAS Desktop guitar-amp designer and modeler plug-in

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

Positive Grid has introduced BIAS Desktop, a groundbreaking guitar-amp designer and modeler plug-in for Windows and Mac.

BIAS Desktop

Available in VST, Audio Units, RTAS and AAX formats, BIAS Desktop features the most realistic modeler engine, Amp Matching (a pioneering first for DAW plug-ins), BIAS Expansion Packs and the ToneCloud preset-sharing platform. Amp Matching analyzes any live or recorded guitar tone and exactly recreates it within BIAS Desktop.

BIAS Desktop features

  • BIAS — BIAS is an amp designer, modeler and processor that includes 36 of the most sought-after vintage and modern amps in rock ‘n’ roll history as a starting point for user customization. Users can modify these amps and virtually build their custom amps by swapping out the tubes, preamp, transformer, tone stacks, cab and mic to create their own distinctive signature sound. Users can also upload their amp creations to ToneCloud, BIAS’ own amp-sharing platform, to share their custom presets with other users.
  • Amp Matching — Amp Matching allows musicians to instantly replicate any real amp tone in the world, right in their Mac or PC. Simply input signal from a miked amp or pre-recorded guitar track, and BIAS Desktop will invisibly insert additional processing into the signal path to make your current amp precisely match the tone of the inputted guitar signal. No other plug-in can do this. Once the tone is captured and replicated, the user can save it as a custom preset and share it with other musicians on Positive Grid’s proprietary social network, ToneCloud.
  • Standard, Glassy, Crunch, and Insane — In addition to the industry-acclaimed BIAS Standard control modules, BIAS Desktop includes three new dedicated preamp and power amp modules optimized for various playing styles and tone: Glassy, Crunch, and Insane. Inside these new BIAS Expansion Pack modules, the controls for each preamp, power amp, cabinet and EQ module are tailored specifically to these three fresh styles, providing users with even more precise amp customization.
  • ToneCloud — ToneCloud is a proprietary social-networking platform that allows musicians to create, share and download over 10,000 custom BIAS amps, including those created and uploaded by signature recording artists. With BIAS Desktop, guitarists can share every possible amp tone, including those created using the new BIAS Expansion Packs and Matched Amps.

BIAS Desktop is schedule for release in Q3 2014. Positive Grid currently invites experienced and talented individuals to join them in shaping this project and give early feedback prior to the product’s release.

Nugen Audio releases SEQ-S equalizer plugin

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Jun 24, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Nugen Audio has announced the release of SEQ-S, a high-fidelity, linear-phase equalizer ideal for music production and mastering as well as film and post-production applications.

Nugen Audio SEQ-S

With support for mono, stereo, 5.1, and 7.1 surround, SEQ-S provides sonic sculpting and precision EQ matching including stereo mid-side operation, automated spectrum analysis, curve smoothing, and a direct-draw spline interface for corrective applications.

“With SEQ-S, we’re providing the industry’s most advanced linear-phase spline-match EQ — enabling sound professionals to massage and correct any audio with incredible resolution and precision that is far beyond what’s possible with a traditional parametric interface,” said Jon Schorah, creative director, NUGEN Audio. “Unlike many digital EQs, SEQ-S features a phase profile that is linear across the frequency spectrum, which results in natural-sounding EQ changes and produces minimal phase artifacts. SEQ-S also includes a unique resolution setting that can be used with high precision in the low frequencies, allowing for highly transparent adjustments without muddying the mix.”

Through SEQ-S’s direct-draw interface and detailed spectrum analysis, users can quickly identify and specifically fine-tune their audio with ease. When coupled with EQ matching via sonic fingerprinting, the solution offers powerful creative possibilities for audio professionals. For instance, they can match one recording to another to capture the “flavor” of a piece of source audio and then transfer it to the current project — a technique that can be used on individual tracks to unify different takes and microphone positions.

In addition, SEQ-S’s EQ invert button provides a minimally invasive technique for creating space in a complex mix, a task that is typically too cumbersome with a traditional EQ. In a typical music project, by “sampling” the vocal and then using the EQ invert button to apply the inverted curve to the backing, users can gently create specific space without unnecessarily damaging the original tonality of the underlying audio.

SEQ-S for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX/AudioSuite) is available for MSRP $249 USD.

Applied Acoustics Systems releases String Studio VS-2

Applied Acoustics Systems has releases String Studio VS-2, an updated version of the string modelling synthesizer plug-in for Windows and Mac.

String Studio VS-2

String Studio VS-2 is a string modeling synthesizer plug-in that swaps the traditional oscillator sound source for a string.

With its picks, bows, hammers, fingers, frets, dampers, and soundboards, it is a unique blend of acoustic modeling and regular synth-control features—you won’t believe how crazy you can go with a simple string.

Changes in String Studio VS-2

  • Sean Divine signature sounds — A collection of 50 inspiring signature presets by producer Sean Divine.
  • Compressor and equalizer — These new additions are perfect to add punch and definition to your sound, letting you cut through any dense mix or stage.
  • Limiter — The new output limiter protects your ears and monitors during experimentation with the synth’s parameters while providing a maximum of distortion-free dynamics.
  • Streamlined interface — Redesigned from the ground up, the new interface now divides String Studio VS-2 into three panels: Play presents shortcuts to the performance and effect parameters including bypass switches for quick edits; Edit lets you tweak and create your sound; while FX supplies equalizer, compressor, multi-effect, and reverb processors for a final sheen.
  • Bank and program manager — String Studio VS-2’s new manager allows simple and efficient organization, backup, and sharing of your sounds.
  • Backward compatible with VS-1 presets — Simply put your String Studio VS-1 exported presets in String Studio VS-2‘s bank folder to convert them.
  • Overhauled effects — Reinvigorated and polished, String Studio VS-2’s multi-effect processor features our best sounding chorus, delay, phaser, flanger, distortion, notch filter, wah-wah, auto-wah, and reverb to date!
  • Microtonal tunings via Scala scale files — String Studio VS-2 now supports the Scala scale file format for microtonal music making.
  • Native 64-bit AU, VST, and AAX plug­ins — String Studio VS-2 now runs in native 64-bit on Mac OS X and Windows making it compatible with the latest sequencers.

String Studio VS-2 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for the introductory price of $99 USD until July 1st, 2014 (regular $199 USD). The just-released Frontier sound bank by Daniel Stawczyk is included free of charge during this promotion.

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Jun 17, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Stillwell Audio has announced the release of version 3 of its instrument and effect plug-ins for Windows and Mac.

Stillwell Audio

Two years in the making, Version 3 means it’s finally time for Pro Tools users to experience the quality of everything we do at Stillwell Audio, and to enjoy the way we do it. Do you use a VST3 host? Ask no more, because now we’ve got you covered as well.

We have a new website (did you notice?) and *tada* please bid welcome to Broadsword, our newest developer. Of course, by ‘Everything’ we mean ‘not quite everything’, because PsychoDither is not quite up to V3 (stand by for that!) and ‘Microshope’ has been discontinued.
