H.G. Fortune has announced the release of two new Nearly Forgotten Gems, the Alphatron Pro synthesizer instrument and the Atonoise 2 Pro FX plugin.
As every year: HGF Special May 6th News
Two Pro items added to the Free NFG + new Backlist with new bundle! NFG = Neraly Forgotten Gems
The Alphatron Pro virtual synthesizer instrument plug-in.
Alphatron is not just a simple VA synthesizer instead in using a 3rd oscillator with digital waves it does offer a lot more variation. Thus it can do analogstyle sounds reminding of the old Moog and Prophet days but also merge this with the digital realm in various ways to achieve sounds beyond.
Atonoise is great for creating some spooky, Sci-Fi type sounds.
Atonoise 2 is a widely enhanced version of prior Atonoise and is basically built around the modified Mystify processors of the Avatar ST VSTi Synth. Thus it can mangle up sounds to a great extend beyond recognition. It can be used on virtually any kind of sounds like vocals, drumloops, tracks and is even suited for deep sample processing if very few til no modulation is involved.
Both plug-ins are now available as freeware VST plug-ins for Windows.

Boscomac has announced Mk2 versions of its Claviness and Wurlitsar instrument ensembles for Native Instruments Reaktor.
I announce that CLAVINESS and WURLITSAR are died … to be reborn better in their MK2 Version, Yeah ! Nothing is more difficult than doing a mk2 version that requires as much work as the creation of the instrument! But in the end, we get a better result, Yeah !
WURLITSAR is a Wurlitzer who has a warm et round sound! Now you can mix the direct signal with the amplified signal and get an interesting balance. You can also adjust the rate of distortion of the amplifier to get some “crunch” to the wurli. Vibrato has been replaced by the ability to adjust the tremolo on the panoramic. The instrument offers two types of sound, normal or round, and it has a nice little spring reverb …
CLAVINESS is a clavinet with sensitive strings! More than MK2 version, it is a revisit to really approach the original instrument. The clavinet is an instrument that has a lot of feeling. Here, different tones are available with some very effective effects such as chorus, phaser and auto-filter and the ability to mute the strings. Ideal for the rhythmic players, it is almost impossible not to have the groove with such an instrument …
Both ensembles are available to download at no cost. Donations are appreciated.

Sleepy-Time DSP has released Lisp, a level-independent sibilance processor for Windows.
Lisp is a new type of de-esser that automatically tracks the volume and pitch of your audio to help reduce harsh sibilance issues quickly and easily.
Whether you use a traditional de-esser, sidechained compressor, dynamic EQ, or even edit your tracks manually, cleaning up sibilance problems in your vocals can get pretty tedious. Lisp is new type of de-esser that aims to speed-up this process with its automatic sibilance detection algorithm.
Internally tuned to the human vocal range, Lisp can automatically detect and lower annoying “ss”, “teh”, and “ch” sounds in your audio by tracking both the amplitude and pitch of its input in real-time. Just set the reduction amount and let Lisp do the rest!
- Automatic sibilance detection.
- Up to 20 dB of transparent reduction.
- Manual mode for reducing specific frequencies.
- Left, Right, Mid, and Side modes for de-essing stereo tracks.
Lisp for Windows (32/64-bit, VST2/VST3) is available as freeware.
