Amazing Noises releases GliderVerb

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Mar 26, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Amazing Noises has released GliderVerb, a free Max for Live device.

Amazing Noises GliderVerb

GliderVerb is a “reverberator with glissandos” simulating a room gradually changing its shape. It is an expanded version of an algorithm created by James McCartney for his Supercollider 2 programming language.

The original algorithm had no user-variable parameters: this device adds a series of parameters to create a wide palette of effects; from evolving reverberations to granular disintegration to smooth resonances.

GliderVerb is available to download at no charge. Requires Live 9 and Max for Live.

Dark Side of the Tune releases Resistance Is Futile

Resistance Is Futile

Dark Side of the Tune has released Resistance Is Futile, a free drum sample pack featuring rich and heavy analog drums created processed with the Malekko Richter Dual Borg Filter.

Adding dimension, the raw unfiltered white noise and band passed noise from an 808 clone was used for hi hats, cymbals, and snares. The results are wide ranging, from FM clang to beefy analog kicks that punch you in your face.

Samples labeled with a lower-case letter after them are multi-samples. This gives you the choice of randomizing each hit so you keep some of the analog integrity.

All 54 sounds are offered in 16 and 24 bit resolution, 44.1kHz wave files.

The sample pack is a free download from Dark Side of the Tune’s SoundCloud.

Funktion One sound system at The Hive Project

The Hive Project—The Yard Theatre, Hackney Wick’s night time alter ego—let us have a few hours in on their Funktion One soundsystem.

Many tinnitus inducing tones, coloured noises and hours of studio tweaking later, we came up with a set of impulse responses that turn your convolution plugin into a mix tool for club soundsystem music. But even if your music isn’t club related, these impulse responses give a fresh perspective on the mix of any genre.

Load these IRs into your convolution plugin and hear what your music sounds like on The Hive Project’s Funktion One rig.

AXP releases SoftAmp FM25 free amp effect

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Mar 20, 2014 - comment 0 comments

AXP has released SoftAmp FM25, a free virtual-analog model of the Fender Frontman 25R solid-state combo amp.

AXP SoftAmp FM25

The Frontman is a versatile solid-state practice amplifier for electric guitar. It’s equipped with 10″ speaker, has 2 channels that share a 3-band equalizer, and a spring reverb. The current issue sports a classic “Blackface” look.

“Huh, a solid state Fender practice amp model. Now that is an interesting choice” – was the initial response from one of the beta testers. The reason for that choice is simple: Frontman 25R was the first guitar amp I’ve ever owned. To my best knowledge its digital model did not exist, so I decided to fill the gap. And after all, who needs yet another incarnation of say, JCM800? :)

This VST model is a tribute to the original design and faithfully models all its essential features. It is mainly intended for quick and simple recording of draft tracks as well as for some live jamming whenever you don’t feel like setting up a more sophisticated amp simulator.

The SoftAmp FM25 effect plug-in is available to download as a VST plug-in for 32- and 64-bit Windows.
