Exponential Audio intros Excalibur multi fx plugin

Exponential Audio has announced Excalibur, the “most powerful and flexible effects plug-in you can find”.

Exponential Audio Excalibur
Combining delay, flanger, pitch, distortion and more into a powerful modular architecture, Excalibur gives you millions of combinations.

During development our testers and previewers have honoured us by comparing Excalibur to many classic studio effects units, we’ll let you decide which ones when you hear it. We think emulation is nice, but we wanted to take that and build on it, adding all the things you could have never have done with the original hardware units.

We asked those who got to preview Excalibur how they would describe it, they said:

“An audio processing Swiss Army knife.”
”Multi effects box of days past.
”The most extensive Multi-FX, all- in-one plug-in available.”
”A Sound designers multi-FX unit.”

Imagine a multi-effects unit that works like a modular synth and you’re starting to get close to the heart of Excalibur.

Its modular architecture allows you to assemble millions of effects, configured in ways you’ve only been able to imagine.

“Emulation is nice, but we wanted to take that and build on it, adding all the things you could have never have done with the original hardware units”

The plug-in will be available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) in Spring 2015 at an introductory price (regular $199 USD).

kakl AudioParlour releases The Marauder distortion plugin (beta)

kakl AudioParlour has released a free public beta of The Marauder, a distortion effect plug-in.

The Marauder

A unique distortion plugin which can range from transparent to seriously mangling the signal.

In basic terms, the signal hits a pre-amp stage (Drive), which is then distributed between two uniquely modelled VCAs, both of which can be driven to extreme overdrive (Gain A/B) – with a FB-compressor style envelope controlling the distribution between those two circuits.

The final stage is a time-domain model, utilizing some physical modelling and dynamic convolution which can also be driven hard, adding beef and a certain ‘physicality’ to the sound as you might get with traditional IRs, but somewhat more ‘alive’ (in our estimation)

The Marauder features

  • Analog inspired distortion.
  • Four unique gain stages.
  • Goes from subtle to extreme.
  • Organic, syrupy sounds.
  • Contour your overdrive with a feedback-compressor styled envelope.

The beta of the Marauder is currently available for Windows (32-bit VST). 64-bit and AU/RTAS support is in development. The final retail version will cost approximately $50 USD.

Plugin Boutique 12 Days of Christmas – 50% off FXpansion Maul

Plugin Boutique has launched a sale on Maul, offering the distortion effect plug-in by FXpansion at a 50% discount for a limited time.

50% off FXpansion Maul

FXpansion is proud to present Maul: a multi-band distortion and tone-shaping plugin with advanced modulation. Maul is suited to all music requiring powerful sound-sculpting abilities – everything from subtle warming and loudness generation to shredding distortion and experimental creative effects.

Maul features 3 separate drive stages, each of which can act on a different frequency range with any of 32 distortion types. The available algorithms include DCAM-modelled germanium diode, tube and transistor-based circuits, clippers, overdrives, waveshapers of various kinds and bit-crushing devices for digital distortion flavours. Each drive stage also features control over transient-shaping, saturation circuitry and additional post-process tone filtering.

The built-in TransMod modulation system allows you to animate Maul’s parameters with the internal LFOs, envelope follower and sample & hold devices as well as with external MIDI note input. This turns Maul into an extremely flexible device capable of dynamic filter patterns, rhythmic gating effects with extra bite, loudness and harmonic excitation effects and wild, dynamic distortion that can transform your audio.

Maul is available at 50% off from Plugin Boutique until December 31st, 2014.
