Cancer Research UK

de la Mancha has announced Let’s Beat Cancer, a fundraiser for Cancer Research UK.

This is to announce something I’m doing to try and raise £1000 for Cancer Research UK, a deserving charity that funds scientists, doctors and nurses to help beat cancer sooner.

If I can raise £1000, then I will release 4 plugins for free, for everyone.

de la Mancha slix, erratic2, loophole & Impakter

dlM plug-ins

  • slix is a randomising loop slicer, which switches between up to 4 loops and can shuffle, repeat, reverse and gate the slices of each loop according to user defined probability.
  • erratic 2 is a drum sample player with many randomising and velocity sensitive options to make any drum pattern sound different on each loop.
  • loophole is a midi-triggered loop sampler, which allows you play sections of up to 4 different loops using midi notes to control which section of which loop plays.
  • Impakter is a vintage drum module plugin containing 320 samples of original drum sounds generated on analogue synths and drum machines.

Donations can be made at JustGiving.

de la Mancha sets free GTO, GTX, QB-3 & ClipStar plugins

de la Mancha has announced that its GTO, GTX, QB-3 and ClipStar plug-ins are now available as freeware.

de la Mancha GTX

GTO and GTX are a pair of vintage style ‘character’ compressors, designed like their muscle car name-sakes for brute power, pure speed and to make a loud noise. They have everything you’d expect in a thorough-bred compressor, but are tuned for maximum control and ease of use, each with their own unique vintage colouring on top.

GTO is a peak compressor, designed for raw power and lightning response. GTX has a smoother RMS delivery with further refinement in the shape of a knee control.

de la Mancha QB-3

QB3 is a vintage-style, 3-band EQ plug-in, with its own unique colouring and a few tricks up its sleeve. For each band you can adjust the centre frequency and gain.

For the low and high shelving bands you can adjust the steepness of the slope, whilst for the mid peaking band you can adjust the bandwidth. This allows a range of sounds from steep, sharp cuts to smooth and gentle boosts.

de la Mancha ClipStar

ClipStar is a soft clipper effect plugin, designed to prevent peaks in a subtler way than hard clipping, increase loudness and add pleasing saturation.

Where ClipStar differs from other clippers is that it can leave the low frequencies untouched, where distortion is more evident, and allow a greater boost in gain without noticeably degrading the signal. You can use ClipStar for peak protection, for loudness gain or for sympathetic distortion depending on your mood and the phase of the moon.

The plug-ins are available to download for Windows (VST). Donations to Cancer Research UK are appreciated.

de la Mancha has announced that its Scylla synthesizer plug-in for Windows is now available as freeware.

de la Mancha Scylla

Scylla is a 32 bit Windows VST instrument capable of sample-playback combined with subtractive synthesis to produce a wide variety of sonic possibilities ranging from lush pads to far-out soundscapes and effects via scorching leads and chunky bass.

Scylla includes three different types of oscillators that can be modified to a wide variety of styles and three built-in samplers that can accommodate .wav audio samples, which can be played back in grain table, waveform, sample or single hit format. All the audio can be modified and modulated through LFO, volume and filter envelopes, Ring-Modulation, and Unison.

Scylla is available to download as a VST instrument plug-in for Windows. Donations to Cancer Research UK are appreciated.

de la Mancha sets free unstable pitch modulation effect

de la Mancha has announced that its unstable pitch modulation effect plug-in is now available as freeware.

de la Mancha unstable

unstable likes to mess around with your audio pitch, with 3 subtle pitch modulation modes to simulate the unpredictable but lovable pitch instability of an old tape machine or an analogue synth.

It doesn’t only do subtle though, you can also put it in ‘insane’ mode if you’d rather just FSU

The plug-in is available as freeware for Windows (VST).

de la Mancha sets free basic65 synth plugin

de la Mancha basic65

de la Mancha has announced that its basic65 synthesizer instrument for Windows is now available for free.

basic 65 is a monophonic synth, inspired by the classic 80s home computer, the Commodore 64 and its legendary SID chip. Building on the waveforms and signal path of this famous chip, basic 65 adds further features and options to take things a step further.

The double arpeggiator allows complex versions of that retro 8-bit game sound and the modulation options inspire experimentation via the mod envelope and 2 comprehensive LFOs. Pulse width modulation, ring modulation and oscillator detune/sync are key ingredients in the signature sound. Throw in some pitch drift, bit drift, a sprinkle of dirt and randomisation and you have a wide range of lofi, chiptune, retro-tastic sounds at your disposal.

basic 65 was co-developed with sink, who also made the presets.

basic65 for Windows (VST) is now available to download as freeware. A donation to Cancer Research UK is appreciated.

de la Mancha sets free PULS synth plugin

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Dec 02, 2013 - comment 0 comments

de la Mancha has announced that its PULS monophonic pulse wave synthesizer instrument for Windows is now free.

de la Mancha PULS

PULS is a monophonic pulse wave synthesizer with simple controls but complex sounds. From 2 pulse wave oscillators you can get chunky basses, scorching leads, retro chiptune, dusty lofi and oddball noises. With an unusual isometric pixel-art interface, what it lacks in knobs, it makes up for in sound.

It features custom pulse waveforms, unison, oscillator sync and ring modulation for some big ‘n’ dirty sound potential, with a tempo-sync LFO for pulse width modulation (PWM) as well as detune and volume modulation.

PULS is available to download for Windows (VST).
