Native Instruments releases PULSWERK Expansion for MASCHINE

Native Instruments Pulswerk

Native Instruments has announced the release of Pulswerk, a new Maschine Expansion designed for minimalistic house and techno.

Aside from its 30 drum kits, PULSWERK contains 20 unique Special Kits created exclusively with pitched sound sources. The Expansion also features an array of Multi-Effect Kits containing pre-sequenced, tempo synced effect chains and 60 new specially-designed MASSIVE presets. Combining these, PULSWERK provides an extensive toolkit for producers eager to turn deep sonic experimentation into finished professional productions.

PULSWERK’s 30 Drum Kits provide a selection of kicks, snares, claps, metallic sounds, and more specifically chosen to serve as a sonic foundation for the rest of the Expansion’s feature set. An array of Special Kits larger than that of any previous Expansion comprises chords, pads, drones, bleeps, and a variety of other pitched sound sources. Together, these sounds combine to give users a powerful toolkit for constructing polished, percussive grooves. The included patterns provide users with a creative springboard to quickly and easily start building tracks. PULSWERK’s sounds were meticulously designed with top-of-the-line software, hardware, and modular synthesizers, and drum machines – each running through high-end compressor and EQ chains carefully chosen to enhance the sound’s inherent character.

PULSWERK also features a set of pre-sequenced Multi-Effect Kits created from MASCHINE’s vast selection of on-board effects. These custom effect chains conveniently load into MASCHINE’s pads exactly like a drum kit.
Each chain automatically syncs to track tempo for evolving, beat-synced textures. These effect chains also boast powerful routing options, allowing users to route chains into new ones for a wide array of combinations. Designed for performance, key effect parameters are intuitively mapped to the hardware’s Macro knobs. Users can also automate effect performances and recall them for future production sessions and live improvisation.

PULSWERK was created by renowned sound designer Denis Gökdag – the creator of NI’s wildly successful MASCHINE Expansion TRANSISTOR PUNCH, and the name behind Surround SFX and Zynaptiq.

Pulswerk is available to purchase for for $49 USD / 49 EUR. A compact version of Pulswerk is also available for iMASCHINE in the in-app store for $0.99 USD / 0.89 EUR.

Zynaptiq announces PITCHMAP: Real-Time Polyphonic Pitch-Correction and Pitch-Mapping

Zynaptiq has announced the imminent release of PITCHMAP, the worldʼs first and only audio plug-in capable of polyphonic pitch-correction and pitch-mapping in real-time.

PITCHMAP allows real-time correction of pitch inaccuracies within mixed signals, as well as completely altering the tonality, chords, harmonies or melodies of a musical signal on the fly, a process Zynaptiq refers to as Pitch Mapping. PITCHMAP does this using Zynaptiq’s proprietary, artificial intelligence based MAP technology (Mixed-Signal Audio Processing) to de-mix an incoming signal – like, for example, a full mix – into individual elements, and then allows the user to arbitrarily or automatically correct and modify their pitches. Additionally, PITCHMAP provides means to deliberately induce processing “errors” to make results sound synthetic in a very futuristic and unique way.

“Our DSP Developer Stephan M. Bernsee has come up with what we believe to be a real game-changer.” Zynaptiq CEO Denis H. Goekdag said. “PITCHMAP lets you reach into a recording and change the pitch-related aspects of the composition on-the-fly. You can change an entire song from minor to major with just a couple of clicks, simultaneously correcting any tuning issues and changing the key. While there are other pitch processing solutions available, PITCHMAP combines polyphonic capability, a real-time workflow and an exceptional processing quality based on techniques that model the human auditory system, thus opening up a whole new level of creativity.”

Zynaptiq GmbH, based in Hannover, Germany, creates audio software based on artificial intelligence technology, and was founded in 2011 by Stephan M. Bernsee and Denis H. Goekdag, known for their involvement with Prosoniq, Hartmann Music, Surround SFX and the DSP Dimension, amongst others.

Elysia releases Preset Package by Denis Gökdag

Elysia Preset Package

Elysia has announced the release of a Preset Package featuring presets for all Elysia plug-ins by Denis Gökdag.

We have received quite some requests for presets ever since we have started to release our products as plugins. While discussing this at the Musikmesse 2011, sound designer and early elysia adopter Denis Goekdag kindly offered his support.

Denis started straight away and created ten presets for each of the four elysia plugins currently available. On top of this, we have added the suggested settings from the alpha compressor and mpressor manuals.

Of course these presets can only be starting points for your own explorations. Please keep in mind that especially the threshold and ratio values have to be adapted to your specific audio material…

The Elysia Preset Package is available as a free download here.
