Shattered Glass Audio releases Ace free tube amp plugin

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

Shattered Glass Audio has announced Ace, a free tube amplifier effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Shattered Glass Audio Ace

Ace is a faithful digital emulation of a legendary 1950s, American, all tube, tweed, 5W amp. We have added to the model two of the most common amplifier mods: adjustment of the amount of feedback and addition of grid stopper resistors, both of which can be turned off for the original amp sound.

For added flexibility, speaker emulation can be switched out in case you want to use a different speaker emulator. Ace also features 2x, 4x, or 8x selectable oversampling.

Simple controls and a conservative CPU usage make ACE easy to use in live settings as well as for re-amping.

Ace features

  • Accurate modeling of the whole circuit to capture dynamic interactions between amp stages.
  • Authentic 12AX7 and 6V6GT vacuum tube models.
  • Models of the two most common amp mods.
  • Adjustable strength of the input signal with up to 12 dB boost.
  • Cabinet simulation that can be switched on or off.
  • Selectable 2x, 4x, or 8x oversampling.

The plug-in is available to download for Windows and Mac as freeware (VST/AU).

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).
