Our flanger, from through-zero tape flanging (dramatic jet-effect!) to classic stomp-box type chorus, with LFO modulation and feedback / resonance.
Uhbik-F simulates two tape machines per audio channel, with recording and playback heads that can even occupy the same position if you want – impossible in the real world! Bass frequencies can bypass the effect (‘bass sanctuary’) to ensure LF-stability while the rest of the sound is swept around. Turn up the drive (2nd harmonic distortion), and your lead line will scorch its way through any mix!
The Uhbik-F Rack Extension is available to purchase for the introductory price of $19 USD until November 12th 2012 (regular $39 USD).
Sonic Charge has announced the release of its Echobode effect plug-in for Propellerhead Reason.
Echobode is a delay effect with a frequency shifter placed inside the feedback loop.
Echobode is a frequency shifter combined with a delay. The frequency shifter algorithm is inspired by the classic Bode device and it has excellent sideband separation. The delay uses high quality all-pass interpolation and a built-in LFO can be used to modulate the effect.
Echobode is capable of creating many different effects from pure frequency shifting and echoes to phasers, flangers, choruses and more.
Echobode is available from the Propellerhead Shop for the introductory price of $25 USD / 19 EUR until October 31st, 2012 (regular price $39 USD / 32 EUR).
One Small Clue has released version 0.3.1 of Orange Chorus, a free chorus effect plug-in for Windows.
One Small Clue Orange Chorus VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.
I’m considering creating a series of free effect plugins, partly inspired by the Kjaerhus Classic series.
My current thought is to only create plugins which can be made with simple GUIs. Say a maxiumum of 8 knobs or switches. The simple controls will be a limiting factor on how effects are designed. However that should make the GUI’s quicker to produce, leaving more time to focus on the effect algorithms which is more fun.
My goal was to create a clear chorus effect that could be used to thicken or blur synth parts or vocals. I’m fairly happy with the plugin so far. Depending on the feedback I might tweak the chorus algorithms a bit more. I’m not sure about the all knob GUI design. I think it makes for an attractive overall layout, but perhaps switches would better represent the functionality of the MODE and SHAPE parameters.
Orange Chorus is available as a free download for Windows (32/64-bit VST).
Sound Magic has announced Neo Plasma, a new concept in multi delay type effects.
Neo Plasma uses a Plasma Collision System to maximize the randomness of several parameters, creating a bigger and richer sound than is possible with standard FX boxes. Neo Plasma features a whole multi delay system which enables Neo Plasma to produce several kinds of effects, including:
Multi delay effect with feedback control and different modulation options that give it too many sound possibilities to list here. It can be a exciting modern delay FX one minute and a vintage delay effect with mellow and richer sound the next!
Multi tap effect.
6 voices Echo effect.
Chorus effect – but with our built-in modulation options, users can achieve a richer sound than other chorus effects on the market. Make their own unique chorus now!
Many newly created EFX – Neo Plasma has a modular structure inside so it is possible for users to create new effects with different settings.
Sound Magic has made Neo Plasma easy to operate, too. Delay times AND note durations are completely in user’s control. With our graphic control GUI, users can easily move the icons to their desired positions and Neo Plasma will calculate the panning and volume for them automatically.
Neo Plasma features
Internal 64-bit floating point precision.
Innovative Plasma Collision System.
Six modulated stereo delay lines.
Independent feedback and LFO with stereo phase shift control on each tap.
Over 20 modulation waveforms.
Support up to 32Bit/384KHz resolution.
Neo Plasma for Windows (VST/Supreme Piano 2 add-on) is available to purchase for 49 EUR.
Synapse Audio has announced the RM-1, AF-4, and DC-2, three high quality Rack Extension effect plugins for Propellerhead’s Reason.
Synapse Audio’s RM-1 Ring Modulator Rack Extension effect for Propellerhead Reason.
Synapse Audio Rack Extensions
RM-1 is a virtual-analog ring modulator with a unique soft-saturation characteristic. Both an internal oscillator as well as mono and stereo side chains are available as a modulation source. Full CV control for all knobs is available on the backside of this rack extension.
AF-4 is a virtual-analog lowpass filter module, based on the well-known transistor ladder design. In order to obtain higest quality, this lowpass filter employs a topology-preserving, zero-delay feedback network with 4x oversampling, yielding results comparable to industrial circuit simulator.
DC-2 dual chorus offers a warm, sweeping stereo chorus effect based on a two-stage design with well-matched delay times.
