Boscomac has announced Mk2 versions of its Claviness and Wurlitsar instrument ensembles for Native Instruments Reaktor.
I announce that CLAVINESS and WURLITSAR are died … to be reborn better in their MK2 Version, Yeah ! Nothing is more difficult than doing a mk2 version that requires as much work as the creation of the instrument! But in the end, we get a better result, Yeah !
WURLITSAR is a Wurlitzer who has a warm et round sound! Now you can mix the direct signal with the amplified signal and get an interesting balance. You can also adjust the rate of distortion of the amplifier to get some “crunch” to the wurli. Vibrato has been replaced by the ability to adjust the tremolo on the panoramic. The instrument offers two types of sound, normal or round, and it has a nice little spring reverb …
CLAVINESS is a clavinet with sensitive strings! More than MK2 version, it is a revisit to really approach the original instrument. The clavinet is an instrument that has a lot of feeling. Here, different tones are available with some very effective effects such as chorus, phaser and auto-filter and the ability to mute the strings. Ideal for the rhythmic players, it is almost impossible not to have the groove with such an instrument …
Both ensembles are available to download at no cost. Donations are appreciated.

Boscomac has announced The Howler, a free synthesizer ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor.
Boscomac The Howler – a “Modern Beastly Synth” for Reaktor.
THE HOWLER is a synthesizer that screams through distortion, filter and Larsen. It gets loud sounds, incisive, powerful and massive.
Its approach is modern et live-oriented. You can control the amount of distortion, the cut-off and resonance of the filter, the reintegration of the signal in the loop (Larsen). These four parameters can be controlled by the modulation wheel or key’s velocity with a different range for each. It’s very attractive and it gives a great feeling of mastery of sound!
The ensemble is a free download. Requires Reaktor 5 full version.

Boscomac has announced the release of Bouncing Ball, a delay effect ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor.
BOUNCING BALL is a stereo delay that bounces like a ball. One can act on the bounce in different ways: by choosing the number of rebound, gravity which will influence their behavior, their decay like a fade in / out, their color by applying a filter (lowpass / highpass) and the time between bounces (synchronized to the tempo or not). To better visualize the action of the delay, the central display shows real time all changes.
The ensemble is a free download, donations are welcome.

Boscomac has announced the release of Vertigo Wave, a free ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor.
The Vertigo Wave ensemble produces sound similar to the Ondes Martenot.
It is an instrument that provides an approach of the Ondes Martenot (invented by Maurice Martenot). Four tones are proposed: Onde, Nasillard, Complexe, Octavian. To better reproduce the expressiveness of the original instrument, VERTIGO WAVE controls herself with one hand on the keyboard and one hand on the modulation wheel which manages the intensity of velocity and speed of the vibrato.
Hear the sirens singing, hear the ghosts wandering, hear UFOs flying, hear the cinematographic world of the Ondes Martenot …
The Vertigo Wave ensemble is a free download. Donations are appreciated.

Boscomac has announced Freezbee, a free Reaktor ensemble for freezing audio.
Who has never dreamed to suspend sound like a frisbee in the sky?
FREEZBEE is an effect that freezes an incoming signal. A buffer stores a few seconds of sound and keeps it in the air as long as you want. You can link the button “freeze” to a controller (footswitch for example) and act in two modes: GATE or LATCH. There is a lowpass filter to soften the frozen signal and the stereo jitter allows spatialize the result. Originally designed for guitar, Freezbee works with any mono source …
The Freezbee ensemble is a free download, donations are accepted.
