The Lower Rhythm releases Basilisk effect plugin

The Lower Rhythm has announced the release of Basilisk, a multiband univibe effect plugin for Windows.

The Lower Rhythm Basilisk

Basilisk is a full stereo, two channel multiband ‘vibe’ style effect geared towards electric piano, strings, pads and guitars. The wet channel passes your signal through a 9-Band Equalizer, each band being modulated at an independently set rate with an adjustable waveform (4 choices). In addition, each band has a knob for adjusting the bandwidth for its dedicated center frequency. Next, your signal is fed into a stereo chorus effect (5 selectable waveforms) capable of everything from smooth flange to a glitchy blitter — and for those more ‘crusty’ moods, a very fat lowpass filter is right there in order to trim off some of the highs.

All that’s left is to mix and match your wet and dry signals with two independent volume knobs in order to find that perfect blend.

Basilisk features

  • Fully stereo.
  • Four master waveform choices.
  • 9 bands of frequency divided ‘vibe’.
  • Bandwidth / Rate controls for each band.
  • Utilizes phasing for smoother effect.
  • Chorus effect with five selectable waveforms.
  • Fat, Moog style master lowpass filter.
  • Independent Wet / Dry signal volume controls.

Basilisk is available to purchase as a VST effect plug-in for Windows PC, priced at $19.99 USD.

  • Deluxe Memory Man w/Tap Tempo – EHX has now created the ultimate Deluxe Memory Man equipped with Tap Tempo, Expression Control and an Effects Loop. Adding Tap Tempo ensures that you will always be in sync with the groove, wherever your performance takes you.
  • Talking Machine – The programmable Stereo Talking Machine, Vocal Formant Filter, presents creative vowel shaping that is controlled by the player’s dynamics. Nine selectable Voices deliver vowel sounds such as AH-OO and OW-EE.

All of these custom made TonePrints can be downloaded at TC Electronic’s website, and best of all – it’s easy, fast and totally free!

Lexicon PCM Native Effect Plug-In Bundle, PCM96 effects in a plug-in

Lexicon PCM Native Effect Plug-In Bundle - Resonant Chords

Lexicon has announced the PCM Native Effects Plug-In Bundle, software package featuring the sounds of the PCM96 in a plug-in.

In a move that brings the sounds of its PCM96 Stereo Reverb/Effects Processor to more users than ever before, Lexicon today announced the introduction of its PCM Native Effects Plug-In Bundle. The new software package makes all the effects processing of Lexicon’s acclaimed PCM96 available as a plug-in that adds a wealth of inspirational new sounds to a user’s DAW that are not available anywhere else.

The PC- and Macintosh®-compatible PCM Native Effects Plug-In Bundle is designed to work with popular DAWs like Pro Tools and Logic, as well as with any other VST, Audio Unit or RTAS-compatible host.

PCM Native Effects Plug-In Bundle

  • Dual Delay – The PCM provides a comprehensive palette of delay effects, such as slap-back echo, tape echo and much more – all with complete control over delay time, mix, repeat and other parameters.
  • Random Delay – Builds upon the capabilities of Dual Delay with more voices and four LFOs (Low Frequency Oscillators) that control delay time with both familiar waveforms as well as random values and input levels.
  • Chorus/Flange – The available chorus, flanger and long multivoice delay enable everything from traditional flanger sounds to flangers that play far behind the beat for out-of-this-world effects.
  • Resonant Chords – This unique mode, first introduced in the Lexicon PCM70, allows multiple delay voices to be tuned to resonate on specific notes. The sonic result can be glistening chords, strange ringing delays or truly bizarre room sounds.
  • Pitch Shift – A multitude of mono and stereo pitch-shifting capabilities are available, from pitch correction in a mix to standout special effects.
  • Multivoice Pitch Shift – This is a multivoice delay algorithm with an independent pitch shifter on each voice. It can function as anything from a voice thickener, to multiple delays that can shift up or down while locked to tempo, to a “Seasick Room” preset that must be heard to be believed.

The PCM Native Effects Plug-In Bundle adds to these effects an all-new Stringbox algorithm, which provides the user with 88 virtual strings resonating according to the audio in. Several tuning and panning options are available, along with a virtual keyboard and randomizer, giving users the ability to create never-before-heard chords, melodies and room sounds.

The Lexicon PCM Native Effects Plug-In Bundle is Native only, and requires iLok authorization. It will be available in Jan 2011 at a suggested retail price of $1199.95 USD.
