Vengeance Sound releases Glitch Bitch plugin

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Apr 17, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Vengeance Sound has launched Glitch Bitch, a Vengeance Producer Suite effect plug-in for creating glitch and stutter effects.

Vengeance Glitch Bitch

VPS Glitch Bitch is your new favourite tool, when it comes to mangle your audio tracks: shorten or increase buffer sizes, sync buffers to your host tempo, add HP- or LP filters, apply rate reducing, reverse the buffers, use the “advance buffer mode” to create unheard effects, pitch down your buffers, apply volume and pan modulations, draw your custom envelopes (n-point envelopes), use the internal sequencer for triggering – the possibilities are overwhelming!

Glitch Bitch features

  • Synced buffer sizes.
  • Advance buffer mode.
  • Reversible buffers.
  • Buffer gate time.
  • HP- and LP filters.
  • Rate reducer.
  • Volume and pan modulations.
  • Internal sequencer.
  • Note value synced envelope mode.
  • 4 independent n-point envelopes.
  • Pitch effect.
  • Synced and free start modes.
  • Intelligent and precise timing.
  • 2 different dry/wet modes.
  • 140 dancefloor destroying presets by Manuel Schleis.

The plug-in is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX), priced at 49 EUR. It is currently 20% off in Vengeance Sound’s Easter Sale (use coupon code vEaster at checkout).

Xenakios updates HourGlass to v1.4.5 (Windows)

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Mar 10, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Xenakios has updated the Windows version of HourGlass, a free application intended for radical sound processing.

Xenakios HourGlass

HourGlass is a standalone application intended for radical sound processing by taking fragments (more commonly referred to as “grains” in other similar software) from sound recordings, to create sound textures.

It is not intended for minor transparent corrections of playback speed or pitch, but is rather placed firmly in the sound mangling/glitch territory.

Changes in HourGlass v1.4.5 for Windows

  • Preliminary feature to allow envelopes to play at different rates, as a multiplier of the texture length. (i.e., if the texture length is 8 seconds, setting an envelope rate of 8 will make that envelope play 8 times during the whole texture.)
    • The dial allows changing the speed to some common multiples of the texture length, the text box can be used to enter a free rate multiplier between 0.001 and 1024.
    • This feature currently conflicts with the looped texture playback. The workaround is to disable the looped playback. (The sounding result will however effectively still be looped for most envelopes.)
    • Also, when offline rendering, longer progressions of multiple playback rates might not evolve as far as desired, as the offline rendering ends at the texture length plus the tail length. The workaround is to use the live output recording feature. I will try to come up with some solutions to these in the future.
  • Maximum voice count increased from 256 to 512. It will depend on the computer capabilities, the used resampler mode and use of multithreaded voice processing if all the voices can actually play.
  • While making the above change, I noticed a performance problem with high voice counts, which hopefully is now fixed.
  • Sound volume to envelope converter window length now has name and value labels in the GUI.
  • The offline chain processing progress indicator would sometimes get stuck over the waveform view, hopefully now fixed.

HourGlass is available as a free download.

Inear Display releases BowEcho modular mangling delay

Inear Display BowEcho

Inear Display has released BowEcho, a modular delay effect plug-in for Windows.

BowEcho is a modular sound mangler based on 4 delay lines. It offers a large palette of sound design options thanks to 4 LFOs that can run at control or audio rate, 4 Mixers that can also act as gainers, basic filters, ringmodulators or stereo splitters, and the ability to route the output of each module the way you want. For example the LFOs can act as raw oscillators that can be used to ringmodulate the feedback path of a delay line. The delay times can be modulated over a wide range to generate noisy glitches or basic pitch­shifting of the input.

BowEcho is a versatile delay plugin that can adapt to your sonic needs : use it as a simple flanger with only one delay and one LFO, or go crazy and route all modules in absurd ways to produce creepy screaming drones.

BowEcho features

  • 4 delay lines with optional tempo sync.
  • 4 “mixers” that can also act as gainers, basic filters, ringmodulators and stereo splitters.
  • 4 LFOs with optional tempo sync and the ability to run at audio rate.
  • flexible modular routing.
  • MIDI learn.
  • MIDI program change support.
  • Vector based resizable user interface.
  • Cross-platform presets.
  • 62 factory presets by Ivo Ivanov, Daed, and Apparition.
  • Lifetime free updates for registered customers.

BowEcho for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for the introductory price of 10 EUR until October 6th, 2013 (regular 20 EUR).

JC Productionz Simple Stutter Pro

JC Productionz has released the Simple Stutter and Simple Stutter Pro effect plug-ins for Windows.

This is a stuttering vst plugin for PC, which will give you that kool stutter effect used by artitsts like Skrillex/BT & countless others.

Simple Stutter doesn’t freeze the audio buffer but rather samples the incoming audio, then you can change the pitch and speed to your liking. It took several months to perfect the engine driving Simple Stutter

Simple Stutter features

  • Stutter preview button.
  • 20 octaves of pitch control.
  • Small and compact.
  • CPU efficient.
  • Automation of main controls.
  • Simple to use.
  • Control via MIDI CCs.

Simple Stutter for Windows (VST) is freeware.

A Pro version of Simple Stutter is also available.

The big difference between Simple Stutter Pro and Simple Stutter is that this pro version can be played with your midi keyboard, you just insert Simple Stutter Pro on the desired audio track then point your midi track to send midi to Simple Stutter Pro, this greatly simplifies your stuttering work cause you will be recording midi notes.

Simple Stutter Pro also has a filter with pitch and resonance control, an LFO and a bit crusher to dirty up the sound. And exclusive to the pro version is the “Pounder”, akin to a natural compression effect. Using pounder will result in a more subtle stutter effect which is useful in situations where you want the stutter effect to blend in more.

Stutter Edit Pro costs $12 USD.
