Acon Digital updates Multiply chorus to v1.1

Acon Digital has released version 1.1 of Multiply, a free chorus effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Acon Digital Multiply

Acon Digital Multiply is a free and versatile chorus effect with a unique twist. Each simulated voice is processed with a phase randomizing filter so that unpleasant comb filter effects are avoided.

The effect can be used to simulate the effect of several performers playing the same tones simultaneously, to widen the spatial image or to create special effects for sound design.

Changes in Multiply v1.1

  • CPU optimizations.
  • Fixed audio glitches when used as zero latency plug-in in FL Studio.
  • Added new level lock button to lock relation between dry and effect levels.
  • Fixed incorrect folder for uninstall data in Windows installers.
  • Control highlighting of automated parameters in Pro Tools.
  • Support for the Ctrl+Alt+Cmd shortcut for the automation menu in Pro Tools.

Multiply for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available to download free of charge.

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Oct 21, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Positive Grid has announced the release of BIAS Desktop, a groundbreaking guitar amp modeler with Amp Matching technology that offers an entirely new concept of putting any tube amplifier tone and feel into a plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Positive Grid BIAS

BIAS Desktop features the most accurate, thorough and versatile guitar-amp modeler and designer engine, and it can accurately capture the tone of any tube amplifier, users can then share or download amp models from BIAS’s built-in ToneCloud® amp-sharing platform.

“Instead of providing a fixed number of amp models, BIAS Desktop represents an entire new concept on guitar sound: guitar players can now virtually design their own amps, using Amp Matching Technology to capture their golden tube amplifiers,” says BIAS Product Manager Calvin Abel, “and finally they can share or download thousands of amp models on ToneCloud, also we are currently working with worldwide artists and studios to expand this platform.”

The Amp Matching™ in BIAS Desktop utilizes a collection of underlying technologies that analyze and compare a currently designed BIAS amp model with the sound of any tube amp, the corresponding cabinet and microphone. It then executes the tonal compensation and enhancement needed to make this current amp model accurately match the target amplifier. For the first time in history, guitar players are free to design, modify and capture the most unique and individual soul of tone, into the digital domain and keep it ready for studio recording applications.

Built-in with BIAS, ToneCloud allows guitar players to share their custom amp models and download over thousands custom BIAS amps created by other users — including signature recording artists. Guitar players can share and download not just customized amp models only, using Amp Matching, every possible amp tone ever created becomes available. Positive Grid is currently working with worldwide artists and engineers to create professional custom amp models and studio amp matched models to expand this platform.

BIAS Desktop features

  • The most complete, accurate, and versatile amp modeling software available in the world.
  • 36 HD amp models included with the introductory release.
  • Amp Matching captures any miced amp or recorded track and creates a matched model.
  • Share and download thousands of artist- and user-created and matched amp models on ToneCloud.
  • Fully customizable preamps, tone stacks, power amps, transformers, cabinets and mic selection and placement—mix and match!.
  • Customize the look and feel of your own amp panel; change the name, tolex, panel and knobs..
  • Works the way guitarists think: tweak gain and overdrive, swap out tubes and transformers, change the cabinet and mic position, and shape the tone with different tone stacks and two 8-band equalizers.
  • Included noise gate and room simulator.
  • Create a virtually unlimited number of custom amps.
  • Quick preset facility recalls each of your 8 favorite settings in turn with just one tap.

BIAS Desktop is available for purchase for $99 USD (includes all amp design modules and access to ToneCloud to download thousands of amp models).

Blue Cat Audio has released an update for the Blue Cat’s PatchWork and MB-7 Mixer plug-ins, improving compatibility with third party plug-ins and adding new interoperability features.

Blue Cat's MB-7 Mixer

Both plug-ins can now load more VST and Audio Unit plug-ins (fixing compatibility issues with several plug-ins manufacturers). For improved interoperability between systems, plug-ins’ state are now retained even if the plug-ins are missing, and VST plug-ins can be relocated if moved.

The new PatchWork 1.5 plug-in also supports MIDI FX Audio Units and can be loaded as a MIDI FX in Logic Pro X to quickly build complex MIDI effects chains (full change list below).

    • The Audio Unit can now be loaded as a MIDI FX in Logic Pro X.
    • MIDI FX Audio Units can now be loaded into the plug-in.
  • Fixes and compatibility improvements for both plug-ins:
    • Fixed issue on Mac when loading sessions created on Windows using VST plug-ins in sub-directories.
    • Fixing compatibility issues with several plug-ins that used to crash when unloaded (Image Line, MeldaProduction, Catanya…).
    • VST Plug-in name is now displayed when loaded from a missing VST shell bundle (instead of just the name of the bundle).
    • (Mac) Fixed random crashes when using keyboard shortcuts in the host application to switch between plug-ins or tracks.
  • Fixes and compatibility improvements for Blue Cat’s PatchWork 1.5:
    • (Mac) Fixed parameters not available for mapping when Audio Unit bridged with SoundRadix’s 32Lives.
    • (Mac) Fixed parameters mapped with wrong range for some Audio Units (u-he, AAS…).
    • (Mac) Fixed parameter changes sent from host not visible in the user interface for some Audio Units (u-he…).
  • Fixes and compatibility improvements for Blue Cat’s MB-7 Mixer 2.4:
    • (Mac) Fixed crash introduced in 2.3 when trying to load missing VST plug-ins.
    • (Mac) Fixed crash after closing the editor of an Audio Unit plug-in loaded with SoundRadix’s 32Lives.
