Plogue has released updates for chipspeech, chipsounds, chipcrusher and sforzando.

chipspeech

Plogue chipspeech

chipspeech is a vintage-style speech synthesizer which recreates the sound of famous 80′s voice synthesis chips. It features 7 different voices, each with its own characteristic timbre. It is specially tailored for musical needs – simply type in your lyrics, and then play on your MIDI keyboard. It’s a true synthesizer, the sound can be extensively modified for easy and expressive performances.

Changes in chipspeech v1.009

  • Tweaked Lady Parsec’s consonants.
  • Added ‘Attack’ parameter (CC30).
  • Added Mod Wheel (CC01) GUI control.
  • Added “save as default” in plugins.
  • Improved Release time in POLY mode.
  • Fixed silent playback when restarting in some hosts.
  • Fixed parameter automation in a few hosts.
  • Fixed SP0 Bending’s “non looped” allophone-built strings.
  • Fixed ambience reverb memory use under 192kHz.

chipspeech is available for purchase for $95 USD.

chipsounds

Plogue chipsounds

chipsounds turns your VST, AU, RTAS or AAX host into a classic video game console, vintage 8-bit home computer and even an 80′s arcade.

Plogue chipsounds authentically emulates 15 vintage 8-bit era sound chips (on top of their variants), down to their smallest idiosyncrasies.

Changes in chipsounds v1.809

  • Fixed parameter automation in a few hosts.
  • Added “save as default” in plugins.
  • Fixed ambience reverb memory use under 192kHz.

chipsounds is available for purchase for $95 USD.

chipcrusher

Plogue chipcrusher

chipcrusher is an vintage DAC emulator, a speaker simulator and noise machine. It’s an audio effect which plays back input audio through a simulation of early lofi digital audio codecs (DAC Encoding), adds grit (Background Noise), and outputs through a selection of speaker and filter impulse responses (Post-Processing).

Changes in chipcrusher v1.809

  • Fixed parameter automation in a few hosts.
  • Added “save as default” in plugins.

chipcrusher is available for purchase for $39 USD.

sforzando

Plogue sforzando

sforzando is a free, highly SFZ 2.0 compliant sample player. Advanced sample hobbyists now have a powerful tool to experiment and share instruments without relying on proprietary formats. sforzando has only one instrument slot; no fancy UI, effects or mixers. Every tweak has to be done at the SFZ file level, no cheating!

Changes in sforzando v1.809

  • Fixed parameter automation in a few hosts.

The updates are now available to download.
