Icebreaker Audio has announced the release of S.O.O.G. (Sub Octave Oscillator Generator), a free analogue style octaver effect for Native Instruments Reaktor 5.8.
The effect produces a fuzzy version of the input signal, by generating a modulated square wave one octave below the tracked pitch. This fuzzy octave can then be filtered to smooth out the tone, or to create synth style sounds.
The effect works best on monophonic instruments with strong fundamental frequencies like bass guitars or clear vocals.
The ensemble is a free download from Icebreaker Audio.

Noizefield’s has released the Particle of God ensemble effect for Native Instruments Reaktor as part of the KVR Developer Challenge 2012.
Particle of God: a time-synced sequenced bounce glitch delay for NI Reaktor 5.
The idea behind this effect is to create a delay where the delay time is accelerated. The single delays are getting faster (or even slower) for each time the delay is repeated. To get a “musical” result, the delay time and also the delay acceleration is synchronized in time and tempo.
Several parameters can be changed in real-time an tweaked by the step-sequencers.
The ensemble is a free download; a template for hexler touchOSC is available as well.
Scuffham Amps has updated its S-Gear guitar effect plug-in to version 2.1.
Headlining this release is the new RoomThing reverb unit, and if you haven’t already done so, we suggest you take a listen to Jerry Stevenson’s sound clips on YouTube. RoomThing is a versatile algorithmic reverb processor capable of producing very musical reverbs including realistic rooms and halls, big open and fresh ambient spaces, short decay effects for cabinet enhancement, and even some great sounding spring reverb emulations.
But that’s not all! S-Gear v2.1 also includes great new functionality such as saving and recalling presets for each individual device and support for drag & drop when importing presets. For all the details, download the updated manual here.
For Cubase and Nuendo fans on the MAC, this release sees the full inclusion of VST3 format with the OS X installation. We had a rather long Beta on this, but with thanks to those who helped out, the result is a really good plug-in.
Changes in S-Gear v2.1
