Sonic Charge releases Permut8 – Modulate, manipulate & mangle your audio

Sonic Charge has announced the release of Permut8, an effect plug-in for Windows and Mac that can modulate, manipulate and mangle your audio in countless ways through the combination of some basic but unique building blocks.

Sonic Charge Permut8
The Permut8 user-interface might seem a bit intimidating at first. Make no mistake, this is complex machinery at work, but it is also a product that is designed for experimentation and happy accidents.

Permut8 is an effect plug-in that embraces the sounds of primitive digital signal processing hardware. It is programmable to produce a wide range of effects from traditional delays and flangers to beat-repeaters, bit-crushers and yet unheard of circuit bent madness. At its core is a 12-bit digital delay with variable sample rate from 0 to 352 khz. The delay is controlled by a programmable processor with an assortment of operators, allowing you to create almost any type of effect you can imagine and many more that you can’t. The input and output stages offers virtual analog components for saturation, limiting and filtering. The output can be fed back into the input to create echoes, comb-filter effects and never-ending chaos.

With Permut8 we have made a serious effort to make a plug-in that feels and sounds like a piece of physical digital hardware and not like your typical software effect. Permut8 can make aliasing noises that would make any Commodore 64 green of envy, but its aliasing is different from what you normally encounter in software DSP. For example, it is unrelated to the host sample rate and you can tune it exactly with the “clock frequency” knob. Furthermore, the components that should not alias, e.g. the “analog” saturation, employ heavy-duty anti-aliasing and oversampling techniques to avoid doing so. Permut8 has got just the right dose of hiss, hum, distortion and unpredictability to make it come alive without sacrificing fidelity when you don’t want to.

Permut8 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $66 USD (+ VAT if applicable).

AfroDJMac releases Master FX Rack for Ableton

AfroDJMac has released Master FX Rack, a free library for Ableton Live.

So, I use this rack to do high and low pass filtering, add some reverb, bit crush the signal a bit, and put a subtle flanger over the mix for movement. It also has a control for a beat repeater, which is nice for glitches and stutters. And the final component is a combination high pass filter and delay. As you turn up that knob, the signal is simultaneously hi passed with a delay on top. Turn it all the way up and you only hear the delay and none of the original tracks. I find this useful for ending one song and beginning another. These effects are great for keeping a groove interesting. Sometimes just some movement in certain frequencies or little effect can be enough to keep the audience engaged without disrupting the flow of your songs. Now of course this rack has the ability to completely mangle your audio, so if that’s what the situation calls for, let her rip! I have found its true strength lies in a subtle dose. Have fun and enjoy!

The Master FX Rack for Ableton is available as a free download.

  • Use Midi Pitch Bend, Aftertouch, and Mod Wheel to affect parameters.
  • Midi Note On Re-triggers the LFO.

Steinberg releases Yamaha Vintage Plug-in Collection

Steinberg Yamaha Vintage Plug-in Collection

Steinberg has announced the release of the Yamaha Vintage Plug-in Collection, a collection of professional signal processing plug-ins based on Yamaha’s Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology.

Announced at this year’s Musikmesse in Frankfurt, Germany, the Yamaha Vintage Plug-in Collection comprises three groups of plug-ins: the Vintage Channel Strip, Vintage Open Deck and Vintage Stomp Pack. Based on Yamaha’s Virtual Circuitry Modeling (VCM) technology, each plug-in can be used in multi-instances and is compatible with VST 3, VST 2.4 and AU plug-in formats.

The Vintage Channel Strip consists of the EQ 601, Compressor 260 and Compressor 276, reproducing the sound characteristics of several classic Yamaha hardware equalizers and compressors from the 1970s.

The Vintage Open Deck recreates the analog circuitry and characteristics of four legendary tape recorders: Swiss ’70, Swiss ’78, Swiss ’85 and American ’70. For an even wider range of variation, the characteristics can be individually applied to the record and playback decks.

Vintage Stomp Pack features the Dual Phaser, Yamaha Phaser and Max 100 phaser plus one Yamaha flanger and one first-class wah-effect, providing effects processors for the typically 1980s’ rock sound.

Vintage Channel Strip, Vintage Stomp Pack and Vintage Open Deck are available immediately as download version and boxed version through the Steinberg Online Shop and from local Steinberg dealers worldwide. Compressor 276, Compressor 260 and Yamaha 601 EQ are also available exclusively as separate download via the Steinberg Online Shop.

Universal Audio MXR Flanger/Doubler and Little Labs VOG for UAD-2 Platform

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 03, 2011 - comment 0 comments

Universal Audio has released UAD Software v6.1, featuring the new MXR Flanger/Doubler Plug-In, the Little Labs®Voice of God (VOG) Bass Resonance Tool, plus enhancements to Pro Tools workflow and the Ampex® ATR-102 Mastering Tape Recorder Plug-In.

MXR Flanger/Doubler Plug-In

Developed in close collaboration with Dunlop Manufacturing, the MXR Flanger/Doubler plug-in for the UAD-2 platform replicates the legendary sound of this classic bucket-brigade flanging effect with unparalleled accuracy. Through its signature flanging, doubling, and delay effects, the MXR Flanger/Doubler imprints a unique stamp on guitars, bass, keys, drums, or just about any source. The MXR Flanger/Doubler Plug-In also includes additional “UAD Exclusive” features and artist presets from legendary engineers Vance Powell (The Dead Weather, Buddy Guy), Neil Dorfsman (Paul McCartney, Sting), and Chuck Zwicky (Prince, Jeff Beck).

“We knew there was only one company we could turn to when it came time to create a plug-in version of the classic MXR Flanger/Doubler,” says Jeorge Tripps, Dunlop’s Director of Product Development. “The UA emulation is spot-on, and we are looking forward to seeing the reaction from musicians and engineers.”

Little Labs Voice of God (VOG) Bass Resonance Tool

The Little Labs-authenticated Voice of God (VOG) plug-in for the UAD-2 platform accurately models the sonic characteristics of this unique 500-series hardware audio processor in every detail. The VOG is used to accurately target and accentuate low frequency material, from vocals to bass guitar and drums — adding both heft and precision far beyond a simple EQ.

Little Labs VOG

“The VOG has been very well-received for its ability to quickly and easily manipulate low end like nothing before it,” says Jonathan Little of Little Labs Professional Audio. “Our hardware version was first available in the API 500-Series format, then as the i-VOG and a standalone unit. Now, UA has put the VOG live in the digital world as well, covering all the bases.”
“I’m excited about the MXR Flanger/Doubler plug-in, as I used to have a hardware unit in my rack and I still miss it. Our collaboration with Dunlop has resulted in an extremely faithful plug-in emulation,” says Matt Ward, President of Universal Audio. “Add in the Little Labs Voice of God, which is really a must-have tool, and UAD v6.1 offers a solid enhancement to the UAD-2 platform.”

The MXR Flanger/Doubler Plug-In is available to purchase for $199 USD. The Little Labs VOG Bass Resonance Tool is $149 USD. These new plug-ins are available as part of the new UAD Software v6.1 release.
