Exponential Audio intros Excalibur multi fx plugin

Exponential Audio has announced Excalibur, the “most powerful and flexible effects plug-in you can find”.

Exponential Audio Excalibur
Combining delay, flanger, pitch, distortion and more into a powerful modular architecture, Excalibur gives you millions of combinations.

During development our testers and previewers have honoured us by comparing Excalibur to many classic studio effects units, we’ll let you decide which ones when you hear it. We think emulation is nice, but we wanted to take that and build on it, adding all the things you could have never have done with the original hardware units.

We asked those who got to preview Excalibur how they would describe it, they said:

“An audio processing Swiss Army knife.”
”Multi effects box of days past.
”The most extensive Multi-FX, all- in-one plug-in available.”
”A Sound designers multi-FX unit.”

Imagine a multi-effects unit that works like a modular synth and you’re starting to get close to the heart of Excalibur.

Its modular architecture allows you to assemble millions of effects, configured in ways you’ve only been able to imagine.

“Emulation is nice, but we wanted to take that and build on it, adding all the things you could have never have done with the original hardware units”

The plug-in will be available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) in Spring 2015 at an introductory price (regular $199 USD).

Aly James Lab releases Elastic Bender effect plugin

Aly James Lab Elastic Bender

Aly James Lab has released Elastic Bender, a peak triggered audio pitch bender effect plug-in with extended functions for Windows.

The Elastic Bender is based on emulated dual BBD (bucket brigade delay) chips which delay times are modulated by the peak triggered envelope. While the incoming audio peaks are detected by the circuitry, they will trigger an audio pitch envelope that will dynamically bend the note (s) from lower to the actual pitch or from higher to the actual pitch.

You can act on the depth and the speed of the pitch envelope and also make some unusual dynamic chorus, wild flanger, ring modulation and early vintage pitchshifter effects.

The virtual pedal can also “self oscillate” when the feedback is set to the max and control external hardware such as a Whammy 5 pedal via MIDI.

The plug-in is available for Windows (VST) for a minimum donation of 15 EUR. An OS X version will be available in 2015.
