DiversionFX CM Edition features

  • Input processing – DiversionFX offers two bus processors to transform the incoming audio into a wide variety of possible sounds. Each bus processor consists of a stereo filter with a lot of different modes, distortion and LO-FI section. We have implemented many filter modes and types of saturation stages to bring you a great armoury for creating almost any sound you need.
  • Effects matrix – The output of buses is processed by the effects matrix. DiversionFX uses two flexible FX lines for a separated processing of each bus processor?s output. With the separated FX processing you can make a lot of layered sounds, even which has two parts located in two fully independent sound spaces. Up to 8 effect instances can be stacked in one FX line, which is enough to create any desired processing chain.
  • Modulation – Many parameters in DiversionFX can be modulated by 4 LFOs, 4 MSEGs and one XY-controller, called Master Morph. These options, along with use of the Modulation Matrix, can really breathe life into a sound. Of course, automation and midi controllers are supported.
  • Oversampling – Typically, after a non-linear processing of the waveform inside the bus processors, digital aliasing can occur. DiversionFX takes care of this by using internal oversampling. This allows DiversionFX to achieve a perfect sound quality with an insignificant level of aliasing.
  • Trancegate – Finally, DiversionFX features a 32-step Trance Gate module, which turns the plugin into a monsterous multi-effect.

DiversionFX Computer Music Edition (Windows VST) is included on the CM176 DVD, and will be included with future issues of the Computer Music magazine.

Multiples E|Drums Mini Vol1

Multiples E|Drums Mini Vol 1

Multiples has released E|Drums Mini Vol1, a free drum sample pack.

Recently, I have been pulling together resources to create E|Drums XL which will be the culmination of the E|Drums series so far.

In doing so, I came across a plugin called the Dirty Panda Drumbox (pictured below) by CFA Sound which was given away free by Computer Music Magazine.

This is one of the first plugin’s of its type that I have used to create authentic Analogue drum machine sound and found it to be a real joy to use. Therefore, I thought I would wet your appetite for the E|Drums XL release by releasing a sampler of the sounds achievable by using this plugin.

E|Drums Mini Vol1 features

  • 70 seperate sound in total covering Kick Drums, Lo and Hi Toms with FM percussion
  • Formats: .Wav, Battery, Reason ReFill.
  • ReFill includes 2 Kong patches and 3 NNXT patches, plus a a Combinator that links a ReDrum sequencer to Kong allowing you to write sequenced drum patches.
  • Battery version includes 2 patches (Raw & EMU SP1200 emulation).

E|Drums Mini Vol1 is a free download from Multiples.

Cumulus is a granular sampler which radically transforms sample content by breaking it into tiny slithers of audio called grains and reorganizing them to form new sounds.

Up to eight Scenes can be created; a Scene corresponding to a particular sample position and set of synthesis parameters. Scenes can be played in realtime via MIDI, or arranged internally using the built-in sequencer.
