Glitchmachines launches Scope modular sound generator plugin & sample library

Glitchmachines Scope

Glitchmachines has announced the release of Scope, a modular sound generator and effects processing plugin geared toward experimental sound design and electronic music production, bundled with a Eurorack modular synthesizer sample library comprised of over 1500 samples.

Scope’s open-ended graphical patching system and diverse set of modules give you access to a new customizable processing environment capable of a very broad range of effects.

Scope’s tactile workflow and vast sonic potential will inspire you to push the envelope, while its flexible architecture invites you to try imaginative new routing scenarios to explore endless possibilities. Use it to generate vivid electronic tones and textures or to process your drum loops, soft synths, sound effects and external hardware.

At the heart of Scope, you will find a selection of modules you can freely configure by populating up to 8 slots. Once populated with a module, a slot will give you access to up to 4 input and output nodes, which you can freely connect via Scope’s virtual patch cables. Inputs and Outputs are configured to have the ability to send and receive multiple signals at once, making very complex modulation scenarios possible. Scope ships with 26 modules ranging from effects to utility, with additional modules already planned for future updates.

Scope’s unique workflow and interface will change the way you think about modulation and signal processing. The plugin makes it possible to set up completely self generating patches, making it equally capable as a sound generator and effects processor. Our designers have included a variety of external and internally generated effects patches to show what the plugin is capable of. To get you started, we’ve included 160 patches by Subjex, Balkansky, Thomas Hennebert, Apparition, Daed, John Black, Shiro Fujioka and Blush Response.

Scope features

  • Fully patchable modular sound generator and signal processor.
  • Sample library with 1500+ modular SFX in 24bit/96khz .wav.
  • 26 Modules ranging from Oscillators & Delays to LFOs & Mixers.
  • Freely configurable module slots and signal flow.
  • Tactile graphical patching system with virtual patch cables.
  • Real-time animated audio analyzers and visualizers.
  • 160 patches from 8 cutting-edge sound designers and artists.
  • Cross-platform compatibility (PC/Mac – VST/AU 32bit & 64bit).

Scope is available for purchase for $49 USD.

Expert Sleepers releases ESX-8MD MIDI/DINsync Expander

Expert Sleepers ESX-8MD

Expert Sleepers has announced the release of the ESX-8MD MIDI/DINsync Expander, offering sample accurate and jitter free MIDI and DINsync.

The ESX-8MD is an expansion module for the ES-4, ES-40 or ES-5 Eurorack modules, adding eight MIDI/DINsync outputs from one expansion header.

The ES-4/5 Controller software (part of Expert Sleepers Silent Way) allows the ESX-8MD outputs to be used for MIDI output (note – not just MIDI clock output, but as an actual MIDI port, capable of sending any MIDI messages). Since these outputs are driven from an audio connection, they have sample-accurate timing, which no USB MIDI interface can claim.

The Silent Way Sync plug-in would typically be used to send DINsync to the ESX-8MD, though any software capable of addressing the ES-4/5′s expansion headers, via Silent Way or the associated Max/MSP external, can send clock pulses to it.

The ESX-8MD is now available for purchase for MSRP £89 GBP + VAT.

Expert Sleepers releases ES-40, ESX-8CV & ESX-8GT mk2 Eurorack synth modules

Expert Sleepers Eurorack modules

Expert Sleepers has announced the release of three new Eurorack synth modules.

The Expert Sleepers range of modules (including the ES-3 Lightpipe/CV Interface, offering ADAT connectivity instead of the ES-40′s S/PDIF) offers a highly configurable range of computer/synthesizer interfacing solutions, supported not only by Expert Sleepers own Silent Way software but increasingly used in conjunction with e.g. Max/MSP or NI’s Reaktor.

Because the modules connect over an audio interface, rather than say USB or Ethernet, they are able to offer rock solid timing and deep integration with standard audio environments.

New Expert Sleepers Eurorack modules

  • The ES-40 SPDIF Interface (£94.80) converts a standard S/PDIF input to five channels of expansion headers, which are used in conjunction with the Expert Sleepers ESX range of expanders.
  • The ESX-8CV CV Expander (£130.80) is an expansion module for the ES-4, ES-40 or ES-5, adding eight CV outputs from one expansion header.
  • The ESX-8GT mk2 Gate Expander (£54) is an expansion module for the ES-4, ES-40 or ES-5, adding 8 on/off outputs for use as gates, triggers, clocks etc. from one expansion header.

All modules are available to purchase immediately.

Audio Damage releases Freqshift Eurorack module

Audio Damage Freqshift

Audio Damage has released Freqshift, a full-featured frequency shifter Eurorack module.

Freqshift is a digital recreation of the analog frequency shifter modules of decades long gone.

Unlike the more common pitch shifter, which raises or lower the pitch of a sound by some ratio (such as an octave or a fifth), frequency shifters add a specific frequency ( 321Hz, for example) to the signal and all of its harmonics. This alters the timbre of the sound in a manner unlike other familiar effects processors.

Freqshift replaces complex analog circuitry with calibration-free digital processing, delivering a frequency shifter in a compact, flexible, but economically priced Eurorack module.

Freqshift is available to purchase from Audio Damage’s exclusive retail partners, priced at $189 USD.

Audio Damage launches DubJr, Grainshift & Errorbox Eurorack modules

Audio Damage DubJr

Audio Damage has announced the release of DubJr, Grainshift and Errorbox, three Eurorack modules.

After two years of R&D (a sentence fragment that in no way conveys the experience we’ve just been through), and coincidentally during the week of Audio Damage’s tenth anniversary, we have succeeded in releasing a hardware platform for our DSP effects, and are ludicrously proud to unveil the first three Audio Damage hardware products: DubJr, Grainshift, and Errorbox.

Audio Damage Eurorack modules

  • ADM01 DubJr is the delay from Dubstation, in a pint-sized Eurorack modular format, for your knob-twisting pleasure.
  • ADM02 Grainshift is a real-time granular pitch-shifter and chaos effect for the Eurorack modular format. From simple smooth micro-tuned pitch shifting and chorus effects on up to full metal granular chaos, Grainshift is a versatile module, easy to use and fun to have.
  • ADM03 Errorbox is just like any other tool-kit utility module, except that in this tool-kit, all the tools are chainsaws and rabid badgers. Includes a sample rate reducer, bit rate reducer, and ERR algorithm (as found in the Kombinat Dva plug-in).

The modules are available to purchase via Audio Damage’s retail partners for $179 USD each (currently exclusively at Analogue Haven).

Particular releases Euro Munchies – Rough Crustings

Particular Rough Crustings

Particular Audio has launched Rough Crustings, a new Euro Munchies series sample library featuring 100+ Eurorack sequence loops.

In the third installment of the Euro Munchies series we serve you truly appetizing morsels of analogue dirt and filth. As unique and wonderfully weird as the previous packs, these Eurorack sequences will transform your tracks into oozing analogue night glows – for anything four to the floor, downtempo, urban or cinematic.

Just as the previous packs, these loops were created through feeding clock signals from a DAW into a setup of Eurorack sequencers, oscillators, filters and effects – and then processing the resulting sequences in the digital domain – retaining all the magic and weirdness coming from the analog circuits in sync and under control for maximum musical ability.

The sample pack costs £14.95 GBP.

Particular releases Euro Munchies Tasty Transients sample pack

Particular Euro Munchies Tasty Transients

Particular has released Tasty Transients, a new Euro Munchies series sample pack featuring 115 Eurorack sequence loops.

In this second installment in the series it’s all about transient and attack rich analogue Eurorack loops. The weirder the better is the decree so slap these onto something in need of something really out of the ordinary – be it four to the floor, downtempo, urban or cinematic.

Design spec here is the exploration of rhythmic and timing possibilities in analogue traditional and Cartesian sequencers and rotating clock dividers in a Eurorack modular system. We did this by feeding clock signals from a DAW and process the resulting sequences in the digital domain – all to retain the magic and weirdness coming from the analogue circuits in sync and under control. Instead of focusing on any specific genre or style of sound the goal here has been to squeeze out the most outlandish sequences possible using high quality analogue oscillators combined with digital wavetable ones, frequency modulation, low pass gates, filters, distortion and frequency shifter among others.

The modular system consists of selected modules from about 20 different brands: Makenoise, 4ms, Cwejman, Doepfer, TipTop audio, Plan B, Intellijel and a Roland system 100 Model 101. Digital realtime processing made mainly through Soundtoys and Fabfilter suites.

The sample library costs £14.95 GBP.
