QuikQuak Fusion Field

QuikQuak has released version 3.30 of its Fusion Field reverb effect plugin for Windows and Mac.

Fusion Field is a smooth diffusion reverb that sits beautifully in a mix. A clean, unobtrusive sound with a natural falloff that floats and complements the source material perfectly. Designed to imitate complex, natural spaces, it is also very easy to use.

Changes in Fusion Field v3.30

  • Up to 3X faster, with multi-threaded processing.
  • Spikeless CPU usage.

Fusion Field (32/64-bit VST/AU) is available to purchase for £50 GBP. The update is free for all registered users.

Plugin Boutique releases exclusive Sinevibes Bundle (50% off regular)

Plugin Boutique has launched an exclusive Sinevibes Bundle, a collection of three AudioUnit plug-ins for Mac.

Plugin Boutique Sinevibes Bundle
Sinevibes Bundle – three AU plug-ins at 50% off

PIB Exclusive Sinevibes Bundle includes:

  • Diffusion – Diffusion is an AudioUnit synthesizer plugin for creating unique basslines and motion sounds. Its engine combines additive oscillators and waveshape modeling with an advanced matrix sequencer that allows for over 400 different parameter combinations per step. All this is controlled via an intuitive color-coded interface, making Diffusion a one-of-a-kind instrument that’s both deeply capable and fun.
  • Drift – Drift is an AudioUnit effect plugin that adds smooth chaotic motion to any sound. It features a two-dimensional fractal generator that produces endlessly developing waveforms and is unique per each audio channel. The generator output is then applied onto sound level and filter cutoff frequency and allows you to create various ever-changing, widely stereoscopic modulation effects: pan fluctuations, infinite crossfades, random filtering and tremolo, chaotic wobble, and more. With a very simple interface, Drift can easily bring life and movement into any type of sound.
  • Strobe – Strobe is an AudioUnit effect plugin for rhythmic audio gating. Its core is a sequencer that runs in perfectly precise sync with your DAW and lets you mute individual notes and sounds in a looped fashion. Thanks to variable timing, swing and gate shape Strobe can easily match the feel of any melodic or rhythmic part. It’s a simple yet versatile effect that is essential in all styles of music – and it has an incredibly fun-to-use interface.

The Sinevibes Bundle is available to purchase for $38.50 USD (regular $77 USD).

QuikQuak updates Fusion Field to v3.11

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Feb 23, 2012 - comment 0 comments

QuikQuak has updated the Fusion Field diffusion reverb effect plug-in for Windows and Mac to version 3.11.

QuikQuak Fusion Field

Fusion Field is a smooth diffusion reverb that sits beautifully in a mix. A clean, unobtrusive sound with a natural falloff that floats and complements the source material perfectly.

Designed to imitate complex, natural spaces, it is also very easy to use. The main ‘cloud’ display represents the reverb in terms of time and frequency, showing all the main parameters and EQ in a natural way. The reverberation can be dampened in the upper and lower frequencies, allowing soft sibilance and a graceful, lifting air to the sound.

Changes in Fusion Field v3.11

  • CPU optimizations for computers with small cache.
  • Restored compatibility with OS 10.5.

Fusion Field for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for £50 GBP.
