SoundFonts.it releases WatKat

SoundFonts.it WatKat

SoundFonts.it has released WatKat, a VST effect plug-in that pays tribute to Charlie Watkins, inventor of the tape echo.

WatKat is a digital “clone” of a Wem Watkins “Custom” Copicat. It sounds very lo-fi, noisy, irregular. When you turn it off and leave the tape loaded, the tape bends in proximity of the capstan, and this turns into a periodic pitch fall during echo playback; plus, it gets hot and the background hum gets worse in time… you should turn it off every now and then; the tape is never completely erased, and the capstan motor flutters… and it gets worse if you touch it while it’s spinning; heads tend to get dirty very soon, infact you should clean them often. This is true for the actual hardware unit, and for the digital simulation as well!

WatKat features

  • Panel Controls:
    • Swell: adjusts the volume of the repeats;
    • Sustain: adjusts the number of repeats; be careful with this knob!
    • Gain 1: volume of input 1 (left channel);
    • Gain 2: volume of input 2 (right channel);
    • Head 1, Head 2, Head 3: use these switches to select the playback head(s); each head gives a different delay time.
  • Don’t touch the capstan! :-)
  • Additional Features:
    • Very easy to use
    • Very light on CPU and memory
    • Easy MIDI Learn feature
    • Free for all, so the world may know how cool is a Watkins tape echo!

WatKat is available for as a freeware VST plug-in for Windows and Mac. Read more about Charlie Watkins and the CopiCat.

SoundFonts.it Electric Grand EG70

SoundFonts.it has released Electric Grand EG70, a physical modeling simulation of a CP-70 electroacoustic baby grand touring piano.

This piano had a significant role in the pop music of the seventies and the eighties, featuring in songs by well known musicians like Stevie Wonder, Genesis, George Duke, Simple Minds, etc. It is now back on the stage thanks to the british band “Keane”, you can see it in the video of the song “Everybody’s changing”. Every modern digital keyboard offering a wide variety of timbres has a patch inspired to the sound of the CP piano, and sometimes it’s still preferred in genres like rock and pop where the producers want a brighter and more prominent piano sound.

Electric Grand EG70 features

  • Full Polyphony (73 notes).
  • Adjustable sympathetic resonances.
  • Realistic response to keyboard dynamics.
  • Adjustable global tuning.
  • Four dynamic curves available.
  • Realistic control panel with active EQ and Tremolo effect.
  • Stereo tremolo mode (auto-pan).
  • Adjustable note decay and release lengths.
  • Built-in stereo digital reverb.
  • On-screen help tips and readout values.
  • Low memory and CPU power needed.
  • Easy MIDI-Learn feature.

Electric Grand EG70 is available as a VST instrument for Windows PC and has an introductory price of 39 EUR until 31 October 2008 midnight CET (regular price is 49 EUR). You can download a demo version from the product page.

SoundFonts.it releases ZD6 – Die Funky Maschine

SoundFonts.it ZD6

SoundFonts.it has released ZD6 – Die Funky Maschine, a physical modeling simulation of a vintage “D6″ stringed electric piano.

It was back in the fifties when German inventor Ernst Zacharias invented one of the funkiest keyboards of all times. At first the intention was to make a portable version of a cembalo, but it soon turned into one of the most used keyboards in rock and pop music. You will certainly recognize it in the famous pop song “Superstition”, and in many other funky tunes of the seventies. Many police and investigation story movies and TV shows of the 70′s and the early 80′s had music themes based on funky accompaniments made with the D6, a slap bass and drums. This instrument can reproduce the sound of an electric guitar and can be treated with the same effects used by guitarists (wahwah, distortion, phaser, chorus, etc.) for both rhythmic and melodic textures, since it is actually based on a set of 60 strings and two humbucker pickups very similar to those used in electric guitars.

ZD6 – Die Funky Maschine features

  • Full Polyphony (60 notes).
  • Sympathetic resonances.
  • Realistic response to keyboard dynamics and aftertouch.
  • Octave transpose (1 oct. up, 1 oct. down).
  • Adjustable global tuning.
  • Four dynamic curves available.
  • Realistic control panel with switches for active EQ and pickup selection.
  • Adjustable damper level and instrument volume.
  • Wah-Wah effect modeled after the famous JH-1 american Wah pedal.
  • Manual wah, LFO wah, auto-wah.
  • Distortion effect.
  • Eight-stage Phaser effect.
  • On-screen help tips and readout values.
  • Very low memory and CPU power needed.
  • Easy MIDI-Learn feature.
  • FX version included.

ZD6 is available as a VST plug-in for Windows PC and has an introductory price of 39 EUR until 30 September 2008 (regular price is 49 EUR). A demo version can be downloaded from the product page.

SoundFonts.it releases Type4 Spring Reverb

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Sep 01, 2008 - comment 0 comments
SoundFonts.it Type4

SoundFonts.it has released Type4, a simulation of a vintage “Type4″ spring reverb unit.

Why should you want to use a spring reverb rather than a precise and modern digital reverb? Spring reverbs have typical sonic characteristics that, nowadays, make them desirable mostly as effects on their own rather than simulations of an acoustic phenomena.

Type4 features

  • Four virtual springs with variable tension.
  • Variable decay length.
  • Variable dampening factor.
  • Adjustable pre and post filtering.
  • Adjustable timbre.
  • Very low memory and CPU power needed.
  • Easy MIDI-Learn feature.

SoundFonts.it Type4 is available as a VST plug-in for Windows PC for an introductory price of 14 EUR until September 30, 2008 (regular price is 19 EUR). A demo version is available for download.
