GRM Tools releases Evolution plug-ins + version 3 bundles of GTM Tools released

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Mar 25, 2011 - comment 0 comments

GRM Tools has announced that they have partnered with DontCrac[k] to announce the awaited release of the GRM Tools VERSION 3 bundles.

GRM Tools 3

Not only the famous “CLASSIC” and “SPECTRAL TRANSFORM” bundles have been totally re-writen from scratch and are now available in the RTAS – AU – VST and Standalone formats for Mac & PC but the folks at GRM Tools have designed an incredible set of new plug-ins called “EVOLUTION“.

The GRM Tools “EVOLUTION” bundle is perhaps the most original and unexpected piece of audio software made in the past decade. EVOLUTION allows powerful and unexpected spectral and harmonic audio transformations such as morphing, evolving textures, original “VOCODER” type effects, time shifted filters, sliding timbers, noising, etc. EVOLUTION can also be used as very subtle audio treatment effects in delicate processing situations.

Describing what “EVOLUTION” really does is pretty tough ! We therefore suggest you download the free demo (no iLok or authorization required) and experiment for yourself.
EVOLUTION might simply change the way Sound Designers, Engineers, Musicians or Composers will process audio in the future !!! GRM Tools therefore opened an official GRM Tools forum board at DontCrac[k] for users to post their comments, bug reports and experiences using these new “unconventional” audio tools.

Evolution is available to purchase as part of the GRM Tools Complete Collection at introductory price of $489 USD until Sunday, April 17, 2011. GRM Tools are sold and distributed exclusively by DontCrack.com as instant downloads.

Nomad Factory releases Magnetic, Reel-to-Reel Audio Tape Warmer

Nomad Factory Magnetic

Nomad Factory has released Magnetic, a Reel-to-Reel Audio Tape Warming effect that gives your tracks the elusive vintage tape sound which your ears crave.

The plug-in features pure analog reel-to-reel tape speeds, tape/tube saturation and tape color effects, as well as a dedicated vintage style EQ and a built in Boost mastering section. The result is a creamy, warm sound that can only be achieved by MAGNETIC.

Never before has such a great sounding plug-in effect been so easy to use! At first touch, the plug-in’s interface is modern, simple, and extremely user-friendly which instantly allows you to dial in usable sounds.

MAGNETIC can be used in many different musical ways. Try using it on individual tracks to add subtle warmth and tape color to your drums or use it to create a filtered cassette AM-radio effect on a vocal. But that’s not all… when used on the master bus, MAGNETIC can warm your entire mix and “boost” it up to broadcast level. It’s just like having a 30+ year old reel-to-reel tape machine at your fingertips, without all the maintenance costs.

Magnetic features

  • REEL SPEED controls the speed of the virtual tape machine. Higher speeds give you more studio-quality fidelity; lower speeds sound more like a cassette tape. The DASH setting gives you the highest-fidelity of digital audio tape predominately used in the 80’s and 90’s.
  • SATURATION gives different levels of tube and/or tape saturation effects. Recreates the warmth and character of classic tube circuitry and analog tape saturation.
  • TAPE COLOR provides the highly sought-after sound of Natural, Vintage and Modern Tape Compression.
  • LOWS controls the amount of low frequency equalization. Select the boost/cut frequency range with the Body, Warm, and Lush Settings.
  • HIGHS control the amount of high frequency equalization. Select the boost/cut frequency range with the Detail, Focus and Brilliance Settings.
  • BOOST switches on/off the built-in Mastering Limiter section. This incorporates multiple stages of limiting and a look-ahead brickwall limiter to deliver first-class peak reduction. Adjust the Gain and Ceiling Knobs to achieve High-Resolution Limiting.
  • GAIN sets the threshold for the incoming signal. Higher settings result in a louder sound.
  • CEILING sets the brickwall output level so that it limits all peaks above the number it is set to.
  • VU METER shows the amount of limiting taken place when the Boost circuit is engaged.
  • POWER bypasses the entire unit.

Magnetic for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) is available to purchase from DontCrac[k] at the introductory price of $49 USD until 12 December, 2010 (regular $199 USD).

DontCrack engaged quite ambitious negotiations as they’ll need over 300 subscribers that commit to buy any of the 9 hot Sonnox bundles (3 per format (Native, TDM or PowerCore) to reach the +50% discount. But looking at their previous promotions, we are very confident that this unique Sonnox Group Buy promotion will do more than well with the first bundle (Enhance Native Bundle) that should reach the attractive pricing of only $270 (MSRP $540). The Full Elite Native bundle that could be sold at round down price of only $599 (MSRP $1260) if the amount of subscribers is reached. That sure would be a once in a life time Sonnox promotion…

As we all know, Sonnox Oxford Plugins (formerly Sony Oxford Plugins) are considered to be among the highest quality audio plugins ever made for professional studios, producers, musicians, etc. Typically companies like Sonnox don’t like to see their products discounted but they followed-up with DontCrack that has committed to buy a quite huge quantity of plugins what ever happens says Peter Donovan, marketing Director at DontCrack.com.

This Group Buy promotion will run from December 1 to 13, 2009 and 5 days will be made available for subscribers to purchase the product they committed to buy (sales are from December 14 to 18, 2009).
