Boscomac releases The Reverser for Reaktor

Boscomac has announced The Reverser, a new free ensemble for the Reaktor modular synthesis studio by Native Instruments.

Boscomac The Reverser
The Reverser ensemble for Reaktor offerse a reverse delay effect.

THE REVERSER is a delay that reverses the sound. Originally, we recorded a sound and then we returned the tape to play it backwards, it was pretty perilous.

Today, we are far from the mechanics, but the principle remains the same except that the sound is processed in real time. Here you can set the delay time of the signal which will be read backwards, the feedback, stereo offset (spread) and mix the processed signal.

In terms of Vintage, you can saturate the tape, cut of frequencies and modulate the sound reversed…

The Reverser for Reaktor is a free download (requires full version of Reaktor).

Twisted Tools releases MSMAX—Maximizer and Mid/Side Matrix for Reaktor

Twisted Tools MSMAX

Twisted Tools has announced the release of MSMAX, a Maximizer effect and Mid/Side Matrix plugin for Reaktor.

As a Maximizer, MSMAX can be used for anything from subtle to extreme loudness maximization to get individual tracks or mixes sounding loud and finalized. As a Mid/Side matrix, MSMAX can be used to encode, decode and process Mid/Side signals to add width or create stereo imaging effects. With near-zero latency and CPU efficient code, you can use it on any type of track and run multiple instances without bogging down your system.

MSMAX also features a flexible and easy to use insert effects path, that allows you to insert your own effects to be applied to either the Left/Right or Mid/Side signals. To get you started, MSMAX includes an example effect called Nanoverb, which allows you to apply EQ and/or Reverb to any channel.

Lastly, MSMAX has a Sidechain Ducker at the output stage for some classic volume ducking or pumping effects. There are several modes to choose from to achieve instant results. For example, setting the Sidechain Ducker to auto mode will produce a 1/4 note pumping effect. Set it to ‘Self’ mode and you can duck a delay on a vocal track using the vocal itself as the sidechain input.

Whether you use MSMAX to slam your drum bus, apply creative M/S techniques within Reaktor or squeeze some more volume out of your master, MSMAX is a versatile production tool with several tricks up its sleeve.

MSMAX comes with a Lemur template by Antonio Blanca to control MSMAX remotely using an iPad and Liine’s Lemur application.

MSMAX features

  • Stereo Maximizer.
  • Flexible Mid/Side Matrix (Encode/Decode Input and Output).
  • Sidechain Volume Ducker (Sidechain using: Audio, MIDI, Auto, Self).
  • Insert effects path (Pre/Post Maximizer).
  • Use your own effects.
  • Output Limiter.
  • Mono Summing.
  • Dry/Wet Mix with internal latency compensation.
  • Near-zero Latency (1 sample).
  • Low CPU.
  • Phase flip (Standard or Pre-Decode M/S for 180 degree flip).
  • Nanoverb Example Insert Effect (Reverb and EQ).
  • Switchless switching for instant A/B’ing settings without clicks or pauses.
  • Lemur template by Antonio Blanca.
  • Free incremental updates.

MSMAX for Reaktor costs $39 USD. MSMAX comes with an additional 15% OFF coupon when you buy it before August 1st, 2013. All other Twisted Tools products are available at a 15% discount in the Summer Special Savings sale.

Sunsine Audio releases Vanishing Point fuzz pedal

Sunsine Audio Vanishing Point

Sunsine Audio has announced the release of Vanishing Point, a dual gain stage silicon transistor fuzz featuring high-quality components and true bypass switching, designed for both traditional and electronic musicians.

The Vanishing Point fuzz is extremely sensitive to your instrument controls including volume, tone, pick-up selection etc. It can deliver both soft clipping (creamy tube-style distortion) as well as hard clipping (square-wave fuzz distortion).

Roll the Shape and Fuzz knobs, or your guitars volume knob back and you will find a slightly distorted and boosted classic overdrive sound, bringing to mind pushed pre-amp tubes. Crank the knobs up and it smears into a velvety chainsaw fuzz, chopping the guitar signal into a squarewave and delivering shades of late-60s nostalgia. Additionally, turning the volume knob up provides enough additional gain to overdrive the first stage of an amp. Stomp the effect off, and you have your original signal, unaffected in any way.

Designed with a very wide frequency response range to accommodate guitars and basses as well as synthesizers, drum machines, vocals, iPads and just about anything else – this pedal does not weaken your bass frequencies. Perfect for rudely smashing up beats or adding some analog grit or bite to any signal.

Manufactured in the USA utilizing high quality parts. Entirely hand drilled, wired and assembled with love, including testing and selecting “matched” transistors to ensure quality and consistency. Each unit is numbered, signed and dated and comes with a One Year Service Warranty on all electronic parts.

Vanishing Point features

  • All Analog.
  • Dual Gain Stage.
  • Hard and Soft Clipping.
  • High Quality Components.
  • Hand Wired and Assembled.
  • Numbered, Signed, Dated.
  • One Year Electronics Warranty.
  • Rugged Aluminium Knobs and Enclosure.
  • True Bypass.
  • Designed for all musicians.

The Vanishing Point effect unit is available to purchase for $140 USD.
