Hypersynth SIDizer

HyperSynth has updated the SIDizer SID chip emulation synthesizer instrument to version 1.3.

Using circuit modeling technology nearly all unique features of two versions (6581-8580) of SID chip among their famous flaws are accurately modeled. This emulation focuses on simulating nonlinear character of SID filter and mimicking special 6581 distortion that mainly influence the alternation of filtered signal in a real SID chip.

Changes in SIDizer v1.3

  • Added new skin + several GUI enhancements.
  • Added 6 new mod sources: “Note number, Aftertouch, MIDI Breath, MIDI Foot, MIDI Expression, Constant”.
  • Added 4 new mod destinations: “Main Volume, Matrix 1-3 Depth”.
  • Added option to set sound engine quality based on C64 hardware or host sample-rate.
  • Added zero value for Pitch Wheel range.
  • Added MIDI learn and default CC assignment for most of the parameters.
  • Now SIDizer responds to MIDI “program change” and “all notes off” messages.
  • Now in mod matrix “LFO1 noise” and “LFO2 noise” are renamed to “Random Unipolar” and “Random Bipolar” and their functions are updated to match the corresponded name.
  • Fixed Pitch wheel asymmetric problem when it was used as mod source.
  • Fixed issue in modulating filter and oscillators amplitudes.
  • Fixed minor readout issues.
  • Updated documentation: (Added MIDI Implementation Chart , CC tables and etc).

SIDizer for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for $49 USD.

Voltage Disciple releases Voltage Table Lookup Synths for Ableton Live

Voltage Disciple has announced the release of Voltage Lookup Table Synths, an Ableton Live Pack in collaboration with Adventure Kid.

Voltage Disciple Voltage Table Lookup Synths

Based on close to 2000 analogue and digital waveforms presented in 21 Sampler instruments, the pack lets you explore wave-sequencing, waveform lookup tables previously only available in analogue modules such as the PISTON HONDA, WMD GAMMAWAVE SOURCE and the BUCHLA COMPLEX WAVEFORM GENERATOR.

Each module in the pack contains filters, lookup rates panning modulation, reverb and delays as well as bit reduction, complex delays, vocoders and many other effects all routed to macro controls. The lookup rates go from 0 to audio rate modulation speeds. The waveshape for the lookup tables rates can be selected or varied from Samplers available LFO waveforms. The instruments offer a rich sonic palette with each containing up to 100 waveforms.

There is also a C64 based module as well as a granular waveform based module for lo-fi and chip based needs. VOLTAGE DISCIPLES advanced Sampler programming as yet unseen in any LIVE instrument to date along with ADVENTURE KIDS waveforms bring you a new depth of sonic power to LIVE.

Voltage Table Lookup Synths is available to purchase for $10 AUD.

Short links for February 16th, 2011

Some interesting things I found recently:

# Visualized: 37 years of Roland synths in one awesome animated GIF

88 Roland synthesizers

Engadget reports on an animated gif which holds a collection of 88 Roland synths:

You know how much we love our vintage MIDI gear, and apparently our friend Ronny from Das Kraftfuttermischwerk is every bit as big a fan as we are. To that end, he's taken Music Radar's recent guide to all-things Roland and turned it into an awesome (and headache-inducing) animated GIF.

Apparently the collection lacks the TR and TB series instruments, otherwise everything the company has produced between 1973 and 2010 should be there.

Check the Das Kraftfuttermischwerk site for the animated gif and a large image with all synths included.

# Waveformless: Free Sample Friday: Washer & Dryer

More free samples from Tom Shear:

Today's free samples are various sounds made with a washer & dryer. I slammed lids, dropped coins on it, twisted the knobs, removed the lint trap, and a bunch of other stuff to provide a bunch of metallic percussion sounds or just good fodder for sample manipulation. 8 24-bit, stereo WAVs weighing in at 3.3 MB.

… and some more free samples from Dan303

# Microkorg and Monotron Basslines

Dan writes:

Here's some new samples for all of you music production lovers out there.
It's just a small pack this time but I hope you'll find them usefull.

This pack contains: 10 basslines made by running the Microkorg through the filter on the Korg Monotron. There's a little bit of background noise from the Monotron filter but a little bit of grit never hurt anyone.

# C64 LIVE DEMO – SID bassline (commodore cynthcart mssiah prophet64)

Live demo of one of my songs.
Bassline is played by an good old C64 equipped with Cynthcart.
Tune is called "we ain't finished yet" and has been featured on DEAD PIXELS long play.

In 2009 I began experimenting with SID chiptune (built-in sound generator chip of Commodore 64), and Cynthcart to create a blend of original 8bit sound from the 80's and Rock music.
