AirRaid Audio has released the Pandemic multiband autopan and Mutagen multiband distortion Rack Extensions for Propellerhead Reason.

This unique combination of features makes Pandemic a veritable panacea for lifeless tracks.

With Pandemic, get ready to unleash pandemonium.

Mutagen is a unique take on the multiband distortion concept.

It features 3 bands, 15 powerful distortion algorithms—from classic low-fi effects to custom-designed audio manglers—and an innovative Stereo Mix section, which allows you to isolate not only specific frequencies, but also specific ranges within the stereo field.

This gives you a microscopic level of precision with which to mutate your sound.

The Rack Extensions are available to purchase for $39 USD / 32 EUR each.

Source Audio releases Soundblox 2 OFD Guitar & Bass microModeler

Source Audio has announced the release of the OFD Guitar microModeler and OFD Bass microModeler, two Soundblox 2 effect pedals.

Source Audio OFD Guitar/Bass microModeler

The “OFD” stands for “Overdrive, Fuzz, and Distortion.” Both pedals offer twelve meticulously crafted overdrive, fuzz, and distortion tones specifically voiced to accommodate the individual frequency range of either guitar or bass.

Each pedal’s comprehensive collection of distortion effects includes tone accurate models of Marshall® and Mesa Boogie® amps, as well as iconic pedals including the Big Muff®, Fuzz Face®, and Tube Screamer®.

The OFDs are the result of dramatic advancements in modeling technology as well as years of research by the Source Audio engineering team. The OFDs’ distortion effects were finely tuned through an intense process of examination and A/B comparisons with the pedals and amps on which each effect was modeled. The end-result is a dynamic collection of precise and naturally responsive tones, from warm and chunky tube overdrive to over-the-top fuzz.

Both of the OFD pedals are housed in compact and extremely durable cast-aluminum chassis. Their sturdy exterior and relay-based buffered or true bypass switches are built to withstand endless gigging and rehearsal, plus the compact 4.5 x 4.5 inch footprint easily finds a place on any size pedalboard. Both boxes include easy-to-adjust internal Noise Gates and individual Treble, Mid, and Bass Tone controls. The OFD Bass microModeler also features a clean/dirty Mix knob as well as Source Audio’s signature low-end preserving algorithm, Lo-Retain. Lo-Retain insures that bassists will not lose the thumping bottom essential to maintaining a strong low-end foundation.

The OFDs offer several forward thinking design functions. Preset morphing allows guitarists and bassists the opportunity to seamlessly shift from one preset to another with either an expression pedal or Source Audio’s own Hot Hand 3 Universal Effects Controller. Contrary to what one might think, OFD Preset Morphing is not a simple crossfade, but rather an actual metamorphosis in the form of a multi-parameter shift, so fixing an expression pedal mid-sweep creates truly hybrid tones, opening a practically endless range of tone possibilities. Along with the entire line of Soundblox 2 pedals, the OFDs also contain the option of MIDI compatibility upon Source Audio’s release of its MIDI Control HUB in early 2014.

The Soundblox 2 OFD Bass microModeler and OFD Guitar microModeler are available to purchase for MSRP $249 USD (street $169 USD).

AXP releases SoftDrive GV guitar distortion plugin

AXP SoftDrive GV

AXP has released SoftDrive GV, a free virtual-analog model of the Marshall “Guv’nor” and “Guv’nor GV-2 Plus” guitar distortion effects.

The Guv’nor is a solid-state distortion pedal first issued in 1989 to recreate the sound of a cranked up Marshall stack in a small stomp-box format. It became rather popular in the 90′s and is still used widely nowadays for its quality high-gain sound and a its tonal versatility. It was re-issued in the early 2000 in an updated housing and incorporating a new “Deep” control to mimic the effect of a JCM2000′s “Deep” switch.

This VST model is a tribute to the original effect and models the circuits of both the “vanilla” Guv’nor and its modern GV-2 variant.

SoftDrive GV expands on the original design and brings in new possibilities unthinkable of outside of the digital realm. In the spirit of my prior creations, this plug-in also features a few things to visualize what’s going on inside the box.

SoftDrive GV is available to download as freeware for Windows (VST).
