Source Audio releases Soundblox 2 MANTA Bass Filter

Source Audio Soundblox 2 Manta Bass Filter

Source Audio has announced the release of the Soundblox 2 MANTA Bass Filter, the next generation of Source Audio’s popular Soundblox Pro Bass Envelope Filter.

The pedal features 12 top-notch filter effects that triggered the success of the original Soundblox Pro BEF plus the addition of eight variations of on-board distortion. The distortions are not just crunch, or amp simulation; they are specifically designed to work in tandem with the filter effect selections. The Manta’s vast range of effect combinations and adjustable parameters offer an abundance of options, from classic funk tones to modern, super-aggressive dubstep wobble effects.

The Manta features a very unique signal path, internally splitting the instrument’s dry and distorted signals. The dry signal alone controls the envelope, increasing the playing response from the filter. Bob Chidlaw, Source Audio’s Chief Scientist explains, “The main reason we put in the distortions was to be able to use distortion without it severely compressing the dynamic range of the envelope follower. The twenty-four filter types provide a lot of opportunity to shape the final tonal spectrum. Lowering the frequency control generally makes things more mellow, although the Manta prefers to be a snarling, nasty killer!”

The Manta features twelve filter effects, including classics like 2 and 4-pole Low-Pass, Single-Peak, Multi-Peak, and Phasers. The Distortion Types include Hard and Soft clip, Octave distortion, Fold-back, Quantized, and synth-like Gated Fuzz. Each distortion has independent gain levels adjusted by the Drive control. There is also the choice of five different modulation sources including a Fast Attack and Slow Attack Envelope, Sine LFO, Square LFO, and Sawtooth LFO. Plus, like all Soundblox 2 pedals, the Manta is compatible with the Source Audio Dual Expression Pedal, the Hot Hand 3 Wireless Effects Controller, or MIDI control signals via the Soundblox HUB.

The Soundblox2 Manta Bass Filter is available to purchase for $169 USD.

Cableguys updates public beta of FilterShaper 3 (incl. GUI improvements)

Cableguys has updated the public beta version of its upcoming FilterShaper 3 effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Cableguys FilterShaper 3 (beta)
The latest beta version of Cableguys FilterShaper 3.

New beta is up! Almost all UI fine-tunings have been done, changed the color from red to orange for better readability, we introduced preset categories in the preset browser, and both filter cutoffs can be linked.

Plus the stuff which we added with the previous beta: Linking of LFOs between parameters, a nice fade effect when switching between modulations to illustrate the changing of LFOs.

FilterShaper 3 can currently crash in some rare cases when using the selection tool in the waveform area (click and drag to select multiple points and move them, resize them..). Steffen is working on fixing that right now.

FilterShaper 3 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) will cost 69 EUR / $89 USD. During the beta period, it is available to pre-order by purchasing FilterShaper 2 at 49 EUR / $69 USD (which includes a free update to version 3).

Elektron OS 1.1 Analog Four/Keys

Elektron has launched OS version 1.1 for the Analog Four, and the first OS for the new Analog Keys synthesizer.

Analog Four was recently voted Hardware of the Year by the readers of Future Music, and now Swedish instrument maker Elektron is releasing a powerful new OS, making the analog tabletop synthesizer even better.

Analog Four OS 1.1 introduces polyphony, resonance boost, and MIDI multi map. Oh yeah, it also unlocks the pre-installed +Drive of all units.

Changes in Analog Four OS 1.1

  • Polyphony – Fully customizable voice allocation. With the upgrade, the Analog Four can be used as a polyphonic four voice synthesizer, as four separate monophonic synthesizers, in four note unison with user defined pitch spread between the voices, or anything in between. Get ready for lush chords, huge mono sounds and multitimbral magic!
  • Resonance Boost – The resonance boost turns the Analog Four into a screaming beast. The feature is especially useful for creating deep kicks and powerful bass sounds. The resonance boost provides the sound palette with new colors.
  • +Drive – The +Drive non-volatile memory increases the amount of storage space by two orders of magnitude. Thanks to the +Drive, Analog Four users can now enjoy working with up to 128 projects. Each project contains up to 128 patterns, 128 kits, 16 songs, 4 globals, and 128 sound pool Sounds. The machine you know and love just got multiplied by a factor of 128. Furthermore, every project has access to the +Drive Sound library, capable of storing 4096 Sounds. The Sounds are taggable for ease of use and identification. After activating the +Drive, 512 factory preset Sounds are instantly available.
  • Multi Map Edit – Lets you freely assign functionality to any of the keys on an external MIDI keyboard controlling the Analog Four. Multi map allows custom mapped sounds, pattern trigging and trigging of external MIDI units. Also, full analog drum kits, bass lines, and lead sounds can be played simultaneously. Record multi map trigs with the sequencer.

The firmware update is now available to download from Elektron.

Cableguys has announced a public beta of FilterShaper 3, a filter, volume and pan modulation effect with an improved irresistible waveform editor, growing sound library and slick interface.

Cableguys FilterShaper 3
Cableguys FilterShaper 3 (preliminary GUI).

For advanced, multi-band sidechain compression. For in-depth editing. For subtle variations of sound. For filter sweeps and filter drops. For chopping beats or trance-gating synths. For any, most advanced filter, volume or pan modulations.

2 filters. 60 LFOs, 50 envelope followers: You’ll have enormous modulation power at your fingertips. Even LFO amount and LFO speed can be modulated. LFOs can be MIDI-triggered, beat-synced or free-running, from very slow up to the audible range.

New Sallen-Key type filters (with filter drive) provide a sonically rich, fat resonant sound.

FilterShaper’s knobs display all modulations in real-time; oscilloscopes show you the incoming and processed audio signal; a big, enlargeable waveform editor allows in-depth editing with a huge, precise oscilloscope.

FilterShaper 3 allows precise editing when needed, and sonic mayhem when wanted.

A shared online preset library gets you started, pre-filled with patches from our preset designers for (multi-band) sidechain compression, giant wobbles, evolving subtle variations and chopped beats.

The FilterShaper 3 public beta is available to download for Windows and Mac (32/64-bit, VST/AU).
