2CAudio launches B2 dual-engine spatial processor plug-in

2CAudio has released B2, a spatial processor effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

B2 is a modular dual-engine, non-linear spatial processor featuring built-in harmonic distortion and flexible dynamics.

It is our most advanced plug-in to date and is capable of both mind-bending creative effects that defy classification as well as stunningly lush reverbs. Its modular design enables an almost infinite variety of sonic possibilities.

B2 features

  • Two identical and independent engines.
  • Pervasive non-linearity and controlled randomness providing unique character and excitement.
  • Non-linear distortion ranging from subtle saturation to extreme bit-crushing.
  • Parallel as well as serial and hybrid configurations via Cascade.
  • Modular design that gives limitless configurations and minimizes CPU usage.
  • Extreme range in density ranging from a single delay to full white noise as well as complex & clustered IRs.
  • Two dynamics modules providing Gating, Ducking, Auto Gain, and more.
  • Well-designed and ergonomic GUI which organizes deep complexity into a simple and enjoyable workflow.
  • Huge number of novel and unique Damping and EQ filter types.

  • Double Precision 64bit DSP.
  • Band-limited Interpolation.
  • Proprietary Spectral Modulation.
  • Variable Quality Modes.
  • Extreme Off-line Render Modes.

Sonic Charge intros Permut8 effect plug-in

Sonic Charge Permut8

Sonic Charge has announced it will be releasing its Permut8 effect plug-in this Monday.

Many of you have seen and solved the puzzle we put up earlier (524 to be precise) and you can listen to some examples on our home page right now. Now I think it is about time to do a little introduction.

Permut8 is an effect that can take on many forms. It is one of those products that is hard to describe in a couple of sentences. The kind that a marketing department would hate (luckily we have no marketing department at Sonic Charge). It excels in digital noises of all kinds, but can also sound warm and lush. It can do conventional delay effects and it can create circuit bent mayhem from hell. Perhaps more important than what it does is how it does it. Permut8 gives you a number of primitive operators that you combine in different ways to manipulate the playback position on a delay-line. This runs on an imaginary vintage digital processor with 12-bit A/D D/A conversion and variable clock frequency from 0 to 352kHz. On top of this you will find a number of “analog” components for filtering, limiting, saturation and more.

Did that sound complicated? Permut8 is complicated, but it is also a product that is designed for experimentation and happy accidents, and boy do they happen often. Bring your crash helmet.

Permut8 will be available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) for $66 USD excl. VAT.

Inear Display has released SicknDstroy, a free multimode lofi effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

A classic lofi effect plugin with 4 output modes to make it less classic :

  • + : bitcrusher and samplerate reducer outputs are separated and mixed together.
  • * : bitcrusher and samplerate reducer outputs are separated and ringmodulating.
  • - : samplerate reducer output is subtracted from bitcrusher output (so if they output the same sound, the effect won’t output anything).

SicknDstroy (VST/AU) is available to download at no cost.
