Bootsy / Variety Of Sound updates TesslaSE, TesslaPRO, Density mkII and FerricTDS

Bootsy / Variety Of Sound FerricTDS

Bootsy of Variety Of Sound has announced maintenance releases for Density mkII (v2.0.2) and FerricTDS (v1.0.2), two freeware VST effect plug-ins for Windows.

Both maintenance releases are containing important stability improvements, especially for the memory issues that were causing crashes when deleting plugins in some host applications.

TesslaSE and TesslaPRO were also updated.

Additional changes TesslaSE 1.2.1

  • Noise model removed.
  • Faster loading times on systems with large amounts of system fonts.
  • VST vendor tag changed to ‘Variety Of Sound’.
  • Manual updated.

Additional changes TesslaPRO 1.0.1

  • Samplerate compatibility issue fixed (internal filter).
  • VU needle renders proper on mono tracks now.
  • VST vendor tag changed to ‘Variety Of Sound’.

The updates are available through the Variety Of Sound downloads page. The FerricTDS v1.0.2 update is available through the KVR Developer Challenge.

Bootsy releases FerricTDS

Bootsy has released FerricTDS, a free tape dynamics simulation effect plug-in for Windows.

Bootsy FerricTDS

Inspired by the smooth dynamic shaping capabilities of some high-end reel-to-reel tape recorders, this plug-in simulates three of the most distinctive and much appreciated sonic effects generated by these devices:

  • DYNAMICS – gently shaping the overall dynamic response
  • SATURATION – adding extra harmonic-related content
  • LIMITING – controlling peak performance

FerricTDS features

  • Performs gentle audio dynamic treatments.
  • Masters difficult to handle audio material.
  • Adds extra harmonics and saturation effects.
  • Controls outgoing audio peaks.
  • State-of-the-art digital signal processing.
  • 4x oversampled core algorithms.
  • Performance-critical parts are written in assembler.
  • Completely SSE-optimized.

FerricTDS is available as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC. It is part of the KVR Developer Challenge 2009.

Bootsy updates Density mkII to v2.0.1

Density mkII

Bootsy has released version 2.0.1 of Density mkII, a smooth and versatile stereo bus dynamic processor for Windows PC.

Density mkII was primarily designed to work in a typical stereo audio group mixing situation or while summing and to glue all things together in a rather unobtrusive way. Yet it’s capable of signal colouring but in a subtle and pleasant way and also can perform quiet different tasks very versatile.

Changes in Density mkII v2.0.1

  • Sudden CPU spiking on some system configurations is fixed now.
  • Plug-In is loading properly into Wavelab now.

Note: There is still an issue with older SSE (SSE1) compatible systems where a fix is already in the making but not yet stable and it is unclear when this will finally been done. Therefore some older machines are still not supported for the moment with this Plug-In release.

Density mkII is available for download as a freeware VST effect plug-in for PC (SSE2 type CPU).

Bootsy releases Density mkII

Bootsy has released Density mkII, a smooth and versatile stereo bus dynamic processor for Windows.

This device ain’t modeled after any specific outboard gear but rather incorporates some proven dynamic shaping approaches from the past, combined in a seamless fashion with some much more modern concepts in audio processing – the best of both worlds.

Bootsy announces Density mkII

Bootsy Density mkII

Bootsy has announced Density mkII, a new version of the versatile dynamic processing effect plug-in for Windows.

The rumors were true: After quiet a long time of ignoring any update/improvement plans on this one there is finally a completely reworked mkII version already in the making.

Committing to the original concept of Density, the mkII is also aimed at the very same goal: smooth and versatile dynamic processing on the 2bus to provide density in a mix and so to glue all things together.

So if you expect a general purpose compressor or something (as lots folks had requested) – sorry, look elsewhere, there is absolutely no change on the original objective but just the excecution is way improved.

And that ain’t limited to the DSP under the hood but includes an entirely new designed interface and usage concept. Again, the credit here goes to Patrick which meanwhile really scares me: Seeing the current artwork first time knocked me right out of my chair, thats all I can say for the moment.

More details will follow in July.

Bootsy releases TesslaPRO

Bootsy has released TesslaPRO, a transient aware signal saturator VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.

While TesslaSE has gotten famous for it’s ability to let audio transient information pass through (to a certain extend) TesslaPro is going to extend this further: The amount of untouched transient information can be dialed in variable. This way one is able to obtain full control on where signal saturation is going to happen and how such effects appear into a mix sonic wise.

Bootsy TesslaPRO

TesslaPRO features

  • transformer style signal saturation.
  • smooth transient polishing and increased RMS leveling.
  • transient aware signal saturation.
  • switchable subbass enhancements.
  • subtle and nice audio coloration enhancements.
  • SSE and Assembler optimized sound engine.
  • state-of-the-art digital signal processing.
  • minimum latency processing.
  • harmonic enhancements with low artefacts (aliasing).
  • plugin integration is done with Synthmaker software.
  • performance crucial parts are written in assembler.
  • completely SSE optimized.

TesslaPRO is available as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.
