Expert Sleepers Silent Way

Expert Sleepers has released version 1.6.4 of Silent Way, a suite of plug-ins for use with modular analog synthesizers.

The plug-ins produce no sound themselves, nor do they process sound – rather, they generate signals to be used as control voltages (CVs), which can be patched into the control inputs of oscillators, filters, VCAs etc. of an analogue system. Also, with the addition of the CV Input plug-in, it is possible to bring CVs from the synth into the computer, for recording or processing.

Changes in Silent Way v1.6.4

  • Support for the Expert Sleepers ES-2-2 module to the Silent Way CV Input plug-in.
  • 6 channel variant of the Silent Way AC Encoder VST plug-in added, for convenience of use in Cubase where a 6 channel bus is being used for the Silent Way Voice Controller plug-in.

Silent Way is available to purchase for PC and Mac (VST/AU) for $49 USD, plus VAT if applicable.

  • First 64 bit Mac OS X VST release.
  • Improved handling of mouse events (dragging knobs would temporarily freeze the host UI on some platforms).
  • Improved accuracy of MIDI event handling.

Augustus Loop is available to purchase for PC and Mac (VST/AU) for $49 (excl. VAT if applicable).

Expert Sleepers updates Spectral Conquest to v1.0.1

Expert Sleepers Spectral Conquest

Expert Sleepers has released version 1.0.1 of Spectral Conquest, an effect plug-in that lets you directly manipulate the frequency spectrum of audio signals.

The incoming signal is analysed via a FFT (Fast Fourier Transform), resulting in the familiar spectrum plot where the full audio spectrum is split into a number of narrow frequency bands. The outgoing audio is then regenerated by an Inverse FFT. The interesting bit is that the plug-in lets you modify the frequency spectrum in between.

Changes in Spectral Conquest v1.0.1

  • Improvements to the interactive painting of dense spectral data.
  • (VST versions) Fixed issues with slow GUI updates when running scripts or painting spectral data.

Spectral Conquest is available to purchase as an effect plug-in for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) for $29 USD. The plug-in is also available as part of the Ultimate Bundle for $155 USD, and the Creative Effects Bundle for $55 USD.

Expert Sleepers Spectral Conquest

Expert Sleepers has released Spectral Conquest, an effect plug-in that lets you directly manipulate the frequency spectrum of audio signals.

The incoming signal is analysed via a FFT (Fast Fourier Transform), resulting in the familiar spectrum plot where the full audio spectrum is split into a number of narrow frequency bands. The outgoing audio is then regenerated by an Inverse FFT. The interesting bit is that the plug-in lets you modify the frequency spectrum in between.

Spectral Conquest allows you to modify the spectrum in two ways:

  • By setting a multiplier for each frequency band. You can simply draw out the multipliers in the GUI.
  • By applying a script to the spectrum. Some basic scripts are included with the plug-in to perform operations such as filtering and gating, but you can also write scripts yourself to do whatever you like.

Spectral Conquest is available to purchase as an effect plug-in for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) for $29 USD. The plug-in is also available as part of the Ultimate Bundle for $155 USD, and the Creative Effects Bundle for $55 USD.

A demo version can be downloaded from the Expert Sleepers website. It is fully functional, except that it will time-out after 15 minutes of use. Simply reloading the plug-in resets the time-out.

Expert Sleepers Silent Way

Expert Sleepers has released version 1.6.0 of Silent Way, a suite of plug-ins designed for use with analogue synthesisers, and especially as part of a modular analogue synthesiser system.

The plug-ins produce no sound themselves, nor do they process sound – rather, they generate signals to be used as control voltages (CVs), which can be patched into the control inputs of oscillators, filters, VCAs etc. of an analogue system. Also, with the addition of the CV Input plug-in, it is possible to bring CVs from the synth into the computer, for recording or processing.

Changes in Silent Way v1.6.0

  • Added support for musical scales to Silent Way Quantizer.
  • Changed all the plug-in names (that appear in host UIs) from “Silent Way …” to “SW …”, so that more of the actual name is visible when space is limited.
  • Fixed a GUI issue in Reaper on Windows.

Silent Way is available to purchase for PC and Mac (VST/AU) for $49 USD, plus VAT if applicable.

Expert Sleepers announces ES-1 Audio/CV Interface

Expert Sleepers ES-1

Expert Sleepers has announced the ES-1, a hardware audio/CV interface module.

The Expert Sleepers ES-1 Audio/CV Interface is a Eurorack module designed for use with software such as Expert Sleepers Silent Way.

It connects to an audio interface using standard 1/4″ jack (balanced or unbalanced) or DB25 (aka DSub) connectors, and outputs CVs to analogue synths/effects on standard 3.5mm jacks. When used with the Silent Way AC Encoder software, there is no requirement for the audio interface to be DC-coupled.

The ES-1 offers the following advantages over directly connecting an audio interface to analogue gear for CV control:

  • No requirement for the interface to be DC-coupled.
  • No need for special cables (e.g. TRS to TS ‘floating ring’ cables).
  • No danger of damage to the interface – the ES-1′s inputs are completely standard balanced audio inputs.
  • Much greater output voltage range – up to 9x more than directly connecting a DC-coupled interface via a ‘floating ring’ cable.

ES-1 is expected to be available towards the end of June (2010), priced at £85 pounds for the module only (no panel or input connectors), £100 GBP for ES-1 + DB25 inputs, and £120 GBP for ES-1 + Jack inputs.
