Voxengo updates Drumformer to v1.1

Voxengo Drumformer

Voxengo has updated Drumformer, a multiband drum and master track dynamics processing plug-in for Windows and Mac.

This update fixes the user interface redraw issue happening on Mac OS X 10.5, and implements memory usage optimizations.

Drumformer can operate in broadband, 2-band and 3-band modes, with each band having compressor-expander and saturation modules. The sound of the compressor can be defined as “gluey with a ping”, because it instantly creates a “tight and glued together” sound while emphasizing the transients. The saturation module offers you a choice between six saturation modes, each having a smooth sound and differing harmonic content.

Drumformer v1.1 features

  • Broadband, 2- and 3-band operation.
  • 3-band compressor/expander.
  • 3-band saturation module with 6 modes.
  • Broadband gate module.
  • Parametric equalizer.
  • Output clipper module.
  • External side-chain capability.
  • Real-time FFT spectrum analyzer.
  • Stereo and multi-channel processing.
  • Internal channel routing.
  • Channel grouping.
  • Mid/side processing.
  • Up to 8x oversampling.
  • 64-bit floating point processing.
  • Preset manager.
  • Undo/redo history.
  • A/B comparisons.
  • Contextual hint messages.
  • All sample rates support.
  • 16 ms compensated processing latency.

Drumformer is available to purhcase for the introductory price of $79.95 USD until September 30th, 2011 (20% off regular price of $99.95 USD).

Voxengo releases Drumformer multiband dynamics plug-in

Voxengo has announced the release of Drumformer, a multiband drum and master track dynamics processing plug-in for professional music and audio production applications.

Drumformer was designed to be a comprehensive solution for the broadest range of sound processing tasks, allowing you to easily implement almost any dynamics processing idea you may have.

Voxengo Drumformer

Drumformer can operate in broadband, 2-band and 3-band modes, with each band having compressor-expander and saturation modules. The sound of the compressor can be defined as “gluey with a ping”, because it instantly creates a “tight and glued together” sound while masterfully emphasizing the transients. The saturation module offers you a choice between six saturation modes, each having a smooth sound and differing harmonic content.

Drumformer features a precise gate module with a round sound and multifaceted controls that is useful when you are processing a multi-tracked drum kit. The built-in parametric equalizer with its spectrum analyzer will also come in handy. The “Clipper” module which is a part of the plug-in allows you to get artistic master output clipping effects.

Drumformer will positively enhance your professional toolset and may help you produce even better recordings faster.

Drumformer features

  • Broadband, 2- and 3-band operation.
  • 3-band compressor/expander.
  • 3-band saturation module with 6 modes.

Kenaxis Creative updates Kenaxis to v3.3

Kenaxis Creative Kenaxis

Kenaxis Creative has updated the Mac version of Kenaxis, a real-time audio performance application.

KENAXIS the new crossroads of: composition and free improvisation, inspiration and innovation, live performance and your sound library, chaos and control

Changes in Kenaxis v3.3

  • Added Multitrack Record: This is very useful if you want to remix material you create while using Kenaxis. You can now create separate stereo files for each of the Kenaxis objects such as the Klangs, Granulators and Freeze when recording.
  • SoftStep Support: If you own a Keith McMillen SoftStep, Kenaxis is now optimized to use it. It’s set up to use the LEDs and display on the SoftStep so that not only is the SoftStep an input device but it shows the status of Kenaxis as well.
  • Sync Klangs 2-5 to Klang 1: You can now automatically sync live loop recordings done in Klangs 2-6 to the length of your loop in Klang 1.
  • New manual that covers all of the additions to Kenaxis (Check it out for more information on the new additions).
  • Value Randomizer Prefs added to customize how a random impulse works (Command E).
  • Fixed Kenaxis Visualizer link.
  • Fixed System Prefs bugs.

Kenaxis is available to purchase for lowered price of $49 USD. An update for Kenaxis on Windows PC will be available soon.

The Sound Guy releases Spectral Machine multi-effects plugin

The Sound Guy Spectral Machine

The Sound Guy has released Spectral Machine, a frequency-domain plug-in featuring a wide range of unique spectral effects.

Spectral Machine™ is an advanced frequency-domain multi-effects plug-in. Like SFX Machine, Spectral Machine wraps a great deal of power and flexibility inside an easy-to-use interface.

But unlike time-domain plug-ins like SFX Machine, Spectral Machine starts by converting the audio into the frequency domain using a Fast Fourier Transform (FFT). This gives us direct access to the signal’s frequency spectrum, enabling a number of effects that simply would not be possible in the time domain.

Spectral Machine features

  • General Purpose Effects
    • Delay Spectral Bands – Apply separate delays to different spectral bands, with individual control over the amount of feedback in each band!
    • Spectral Freeze – Click the “Fire” button to freeze the sound, which then decays at different rates for high and low frequencies. Click the “Reset” button to unfreeze.
    • Sample & Hold – Similar to Spectral Freeze, but it automatically retriggers at a specified interval.
    • 3 AM – A tremolo effect with individual control over the modulation rate and depth in three frequency bands.
    • 3-Band Filter – Precise control over the gain in three user-selected frequency bands.
    • Spectral Peak/Notch – Lets you boost or attenuate an arbitrarily narrow frequency band around a specified frequency.
    • Oscillating Peak/Notch – Interesting peak/notch effect with an oscillating center frequency.
  • Monophonic Effects (for monophonic sources such as solo voice, clarinet, sax, etc.)
    • Pitch Shift – Frequency-domain transposition with timbre preservation.
    • Harmonize – Multiple transposition with timbre preservation
    • Pitch Quantizer – Nudge each note to the nearest semitone, for pitch correction or to create an interesting vocal effect.
    • Pitch Isolate –Isolates the tonal portion from the rest of the sound.
    • Sine / Noise – Gives you independent control over the sinusoidal and noise/transient portions of the sound.
    • Spectral Shapeshifter – Lets you change the shape of vocal formants (spectral envelope) without affecting the pitch.
    • Vibrato – Frequency-modulates only the sinusoidal component.
    • Robotization – Changes the pitch to a fixed frequency for a robotic effect.

Spectral Machine for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $75 USD excl. VAT.
