Little Endian SpectrumWorx

Little Endian has released version 2.9.4 of SpectrumWorx, a sound mangling plug-in for Windows and Mac.

SpectrumWorx is a modular effect processor that works exclusively in the frequency domain. Two things make SpectrumWorx vastly different from other effects processors:

– Ability to manipulate the frequency domain, and
– Modularity.

Changes in SpectrumWorx v2.9.4

  • Added:
    • “User’s guide” button in the About page.
    • New image for LFO controlled knobs when automatic knob updating is turned off.
  • Improved:
    • Undo/redo and VST program changing behaviour and performance (YMMV depending on the host).
    • Minor phase vocoder phase coherence improvement in certain edge cases.
    • Minor overall performance improvements.
    • VST: dynamic automated parameter list functionality (YMMV depending on the host – works nicely with the latest Reaper).
  • Fixed:
    • LFOs for shared module parameters not getting updated with tempo or time signature changes.
    • Frequency range control:
      • Control name not displayed.
      • Wrong control name displayed (Start instead of Stop and vice verse).
      • Rare crashes while manually operating the control.
    • Crashes when parsing licences with non-ASCII or “special” characters.
    • (PVD) PitchMagnet target frequency parameter unnecessarily quantized (again).
    • Broken Ableton Live undo history (partially fixed – still works properly only for “configured” parameters).
    • Appearance on scaled and/or “high DPI” displays.
    • AU:
      • Automation of power-of-two parameters (e.g. DFT size and overlap factor).
      • Host-initiated channel count changes.
      • Validation failure in 32-bit mode under OS X 10.9 Mavericks.
      • Random crashes.
    • VST:
      • Mono output under Ableton Live.
      • OS X 32-bit: auxiliary windows not following the main window.

SpectrumWorx is available to purchase for $119 USD for a single format, or $149 USD for the bundle of formats.

DigiTech ships JamMan Express XT compact stereo looper

DigiTech JamMan Express XT

DigiTech has announced that the JamMan Express XT compact stereo looper/phrase sampler is now shipping.

The size of a standard stompbox, JamMan Express XT offers a host of capabilities including up to 10 minutes of stereo looping time and DigiTech’s exclusive JamSync feature for synchronizing multiple JamMan pedals.

The JamMan Express XT is ideal for use with guitar, bass, keyboards and other instruments. It provides up to 10 minutes of stereo looping time. Its control layout is simple yet incredibly versatile – a single pedal switch, three Record, Dub and Play LEDs and a Loop Level knob provide access to a multitude of looping functions.

“We designed the JamMan Express XT to offer players great value as the most user-friendly and compact looping pedal available,” said Scott Klimt, marketing manager, DigiTech. “Whether you want to record loops and rhythm tracks for playing along with, create sonic backgrounds for solo or band performances or sample loops and phrases to drop into your recordings the JamMan Express XT is designed to do it all.”

All loop recording, playback and loop overdubbing can be controlled simply by clicking on the pedal switch. The three LEDs indicate looping and phrase sampling status – red for record, green for playback and yellow for overdubbing. This simple but effective looping scheme has been standard on single-button JamMan loopers for years to create lush, richly textured loops or multiple instrumental parts for a one-person-band backing track.

The pedal’s JamSync feature enables the JamMan Express XT to be synchronized with other JamSync-enabled pedals to create multi-track loops or play loops with other musicians. Simply connect the pedals via their 1/8-inch mini jacks. Multiple JamMan pedals can be cascaded together with one JamMan acting as a master for all synched slaves.

The JamMan Express XT is available to purchase for MSRP $149.95 USD.

Holderness Media releases Echo Pad effect processor app for iOS

Holderness Media Echo Pad

Holderness Media has released Echo Pad, a real-time echo effect processor for iOS, featuring a unique delay and sound on sound looper controlled by a multi-touch XY interface.

Use the built in mic on your headphones, plug in a guitar, microphone, synth, drum machine, iOS device, or whatever you want using an audio interface such as the Apogee Jam or MIC, or one of the many other compatible iOS and USB audio interfaces. (Verified up to date list of compatible audio interfaces below.)

Echo Pad was born out of love for tape echoes, sound on sound loopers and noisy, dirty analog delay pedals. Echo Pad excels at hands on warping delay tones and controlled feedback, and is not afraid to get loud.

The app is available to purchase for the introductory price of $2.99 USD.
