Sinevibes releases Malfunction circuit-bent filter plugin for Mac

Related: , , , , Posted in news on May 31, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Sinevibes has announced the release of Malfunction, a new circuit-bent filter AudioUnit plugin for Mac.

Sinevibes Malfunction
Malfunction is a unique tool for extreme sound destruction.

This effect is based on a special low-pass filter that has been “circuit-bent” – that is, the algorithm has messed up internal connections and doesn’t operate normally. It produces a characterful, screaming distortion that is full of attitude and puts out various unpredictable but controllable buzzes and noises.

Malfunction features a flexible tempo-synchronised LFO with four waveforms, innovative per-cycle random mode and variable smoothness. It can be used to modulate the input low-pass filter, the circuit-bent filter or the output multi-mode filter – letting you easily do complex sound destruction and morphing.

With its clean colour-coded interface, Malfunction is very intuitive to work with. The logical control layout and responsive graphics make sure you always see what’s doing what without having to ever consult the user manual.

Malfunction for Mac (AU) is available to purchase for $19 USD.

Puremagnetik releases Skatik heavily circuit bent Casio SK-5 for Ableton Live, Kontakt and Logic

Puremagnetik Statik

Puremagnetik has announced the release of Skatik, a collection of instruments, sound effects, percussion kits and looped digital freak-outs sourced from a heavily circuit bent Casio SK-5.

The most interesting on-board sounds have been multi-sampled and then recorded in circuit bent variations. The system sampling engine was exploited for it’s lo-fi specification (8bit/9khz) and then under-powered to create exceptionally textured sound effects and percussion kits. At one point during Puremagnetik’s modifications we unlocked a mysterious tweak that caused the internal SK-5 sequences to re-arrange themselves randomly and to loop irregularly. These bizarre tonal oddities have been meticulously looped and programmed into three large instruments for endless experimentation.

Skatik features

  • A complete circuit bent Casio SK-5 synthesizer emulation.
  • Hundreds of high quality samples.
  • Ableton Live Racks with precise incremental controls.
  • Kontakt KSP easy edit GUI .
  • Logic EXS version includes Channel Strip Settings with Logic effects.
  • EXS Universal file format for easy importing into any audio host.

Statik is now available to download for Puremagnetik subscribers.

Puremagnetik releases Devil07 sample library

Puremagnetik Devil07

Puremagnetik has released Devil07, an emulation of the classic Roland TR-707 as modified by Diabolical Devices with ring modulation, filtering, distortion and doubling type effects.

Devil07 is a classic Roland TR-707 drum machine instrument and much, much more! With close to 600 individual samples, and 21 banks of sounds, Devil07 will take you to places that the original 707 could never come close to.

The TR-707 used for this library was completely upgraded by master circuit bending technician Diabolical Devices. Using a system of patches and switches, each “bent” sound was explored and all of its expressions captured with high resolution a/d conversion. The library includes an enormous collection of “Mechanical”, “Bitpitched”, “Shorted” and “Rusted” sounds all categorized into individual banks.

Devil07 features

  • Over 20 multi-sampled banks.
  • Close to 600 high quality samples.
  • Singly integrated Ableton Live Rack can be played as a seamless instrument.
  • “Renoise Ready” XRNI files for instant playability.
  • Kontakt KSP easy edit GUI

Devil07 is now available to Puremagnetik subscribers (requires Ableton Live 8.2.2, Kontakt 4.2, Logic 8 or Renoise 2).
