2CAudio releases Kaleidoscope sound design & creative effects plugin

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 22, 2015 - comment 0 comments

2CAudio has announced the release of Kaleidoscope, a sound design tool and advanced creative effects plug-in for Windows and Mac.

2CAudio Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscope is the ultimate sound-design tool and creative effects toy! It is an entirely new class of visual audio effects processors and is one of the most unique generative signal processing tools to come to market in recent history. Technically speaking, Kaleidoscope is a massively parallel bank of physically modeled resonators that can be tuned completely arbitrarily with scientific precision and dynamically modulated over time by over two million points of automation. In simplistic terms, Kaleidoscope uses pictures to control sound!

Kaleidoscope is both an effects processor as well as a content generator, meaning that it is possible to synthesize completely new sounds without any input sound or MIDI performance data as well as to transform incoming audio signals in other-worldly manners. Music is organized sound. The organization occurs in two axes: time and frequency. Kaleidoscope is a tool that offers ultimate control over musical organization in both of these domains and adds a third axis of creative control we like to call spatial choreography. It is designed with one goal in mind: to inspire and invigorate composers, sound-designers, and artists to push the boundaries of what is possible in cutting edge sound-design.

Kaleidoscope for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase for the introductory price of $199.95 USD until March 1st, 2015 (regular $249.95 USD). A bundle with the Architecture Volume 01 KS add-on is on sale for $249.95 USD (regular $324.95 USD).

2CAudio is also offering Kaleidoscope customers a 50% discount on its reverb plug-ins.

From now until March 1, 2015 customers who have purchased Kaleidoscope may purchased any 2CAudio reverb at 50% off. To take advantage of this offer, first order Kaleidoscope. Then order any 2CAudio reverb of your choice and simply apply this coupon code at checkout to adjust the price: GiveMeSpace

Arctican Audio has announced version 2.0 of Midi Madness, an algorithmic melody generator for Windows and Mac.

MIDI Madness 2

I have reversed-engineered the previous version, and completely re-written the plugin from scratch.

The plugin generates an infinite amount of MIDI melodies, from the parameters set in the user interface. I have added a live play feature, not present in version 1, that plays back the generated clip, in sync with the DAW.

Changes in Midi Madness v2.0

  • Now both 32 & 64 bit.
  • Released VST & AU for Mac OSX.
  • Live play mode – hear your riff played back live, synced to your DAW, and routed to any of your synths! (VST only).
  • Watch the notes and controller values live.
  • Demo version.
  • Greatly improved GUI.

Midi Madness is available for the introductory price of £39.99 GBP until February 10th, 2015 (regular £49.99 GBP).

Audio Damage releases Mad Hatter Eurorack module

Audio Damage Mad Hatter

Audio Damage has launched Mad Hatter, a new Eurorack format digital noise module.

What do you get when you take a shift register noise generator and the six-square-wave oscillator stack from the TR606 cymbal source and put ‘em in one unit? Mad Hatter!

As a digital noise source, Mad Hatter is, well, as versatile as a digital noise source can really be. The COLOR control and CV input is the clock speed of the shift register, from chaotic oscillations to white noise.

This noise is then paired with the oscillator stack, six square waves at frequencies measured from our own TR-606. (For added versatility, the COLOR knob also controls the pitch of two of those oscillators, sweeping them over a 1-octave range.) The oscillators run through a pair of bandpass filters, in the same manner as the TR-606’s cymbal sound.

This whole mess goes to a high-pass filter, with a frequency controlled with the HPF FILTER FREQ knob and CV input. After that, it’s out the out-hole to your favorite VCA, for easy-to-patch hi-hat and cymbal sounds.

Mad Hatter features

  • Digital shift register noise plus 6 square wave oscillators for easy x0x-style cymbal synthesis.
  • COLOR knob controls shift register noise clock and oscillator stack pitch.
  • HPF FREQ knob controls high-pass filter frequency.
  • CROSSFADE knob mixes from audio input, through noise, to oscillator stack.
  • CV control of all parameters.
  • 8HP panel size.
  • Skiff-friendly 20mm depth.
  • 90ma current draw.

Mad Hatter is available for purchase for $189 USD.
