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).

Audiffex inTone 2

Audiffex has announced inTone 2, a flexible effect processor with a mixer-like main window.

inTone 2 is fully rewritten. The original inTone for Mac was developed as a Carbon application opening VST 2 plug-ins.

The new version is a pure Cocoa application, 64-bit compliant, utilizing modern software technologies. It uses Audio Unit versions of built-in and third party plug-ins.

Changes in inTone 2

  • The mixer window is the primary window of the application.
  • The mixer window shows all important controls, including the signal routing, playback controls and preset management.
  • Presets can be organized in PresetLists – similar to Playlists. This allows easy preset changes during your performances.
  • Track Player output can be processed by effects.
  • Track Player output can be included in recording.
  • Track Player output can be sent to individual outputs or to the Master Chain.
  • Track Player status is saved in presets.
  • Track Player can not only speed up or slow down the playback, but also allows fine or semitone pitch changes.
  • Individual volume for each track in a playlist.
  • Any individual chain can be recorded.
  • An extra recorder can be placed at any position in the effect chain.
  • Individual Chains can be stored and loaded.
  • Chains can be locked when loading a preset.
  • An Aux chain is added with a possibility of output to selectable direct out channels or to the master chain.
  • All features can be controlled by MIDI, not only plug-ins.
  • Each Effect Chain has a selectable color. Track Player, Track Recorder and some Audiffex plug- ins are displayed with the same interface color to be easily distinguishe.

inTone 2 will be available for Mac in September 2013, and for Windows in December 2013.

Multiples Pro updates Reaktor Toolbox to v2

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Sep 19, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Multiples Pro has updated the Reaktor Toolbox to version 2, adding new macros.

Reaktor has become a mainstay of Multiples Pro for several reasons.

Not only are we using it to experiment with sound and to create ensembles to give away free here on the site but we also use it heavily when creating sample libraries for you.

So, to go with our line up of instruments and fx we thought it may be nice to give away all of the macros we have created along the way so that you can start using the program yourself.

The new update includes new macros used in the creation of MPSampler, our new sampling plugin coming on the 29th of September.

  • Chorus
  • Autopan
  • Timbre – EQ
  • Master Output Meter

The Reaktor Toolbox is a free download.

Boscomac releases Floodverb reverb for Reaktor

Boscomac Floodverb

Boscomac has announced Floodverb, a free reverb ensemble for the Reaktor modular studio by Native Instruments.

FLOODVERB is a special reverb that inundates your sound and plunges it into the depths of the spread. Conventionally, you can choose the level of reverb, the rate of diffusion of the reverb sound and even the color of its spread by using the band-stop filters.

But the original aspect of Floodverb lies in its three modes of actions:

  • Fixed: you set the length of the reverb.
  • Controlled: you choose by a midi controller that the reverb becomes inifinite.
  • Ducked: when you do not play, the reverb becomes infinite and suspends your last notes.

Three interesting ways that make Floodverb is a unique effect. Let yourself go snorkeling in the background of sound ocean and maybe after a few hours of music, you will see some dolphins …

The ensemble is a free download. Donations are welcome.
