H.G. Fortune releases The Tiger virtual synth instrument for Windows

Related: , , Posted in news on Feb 21, 2012 - comment 0 comments

H.G. Fortune has announced the release of The Tiger, a virtual synthesizer instrument for Windows.

H.G. Fortune The Tiger

The Tiger is described as a versatile and flexible synthesizer capable of complex multi-layered sounds with some specific extras from the Aux oscillators, as well as groovy rhythmic sounds you would hardly expect from a synth, and, if you want, fairly typical synth sounds (brass, bass, strings PPG, DX, lead, etc.).

There are a lot of modulation options and there is an easy way to integrate ‘hardwired’ controllers like joysticks, touchpads or ribbons via the 4 UCC knobs (User assignable MIDI CC) which can be selected as mod sources too. Along with Aftertouch, Velocity and Modwheel you have many options for realtime interaction at performing live.

Two 16-step Rhythmic Pattern Gators (RPG) and a 16 Step Modulator can turn pads into complex rhythmic sounds. While two Aux oscillators can add some additional spacey sounds (a little like with Altair 4), or, can be used as mod source for a wide range of Amplitude Modulation. Both usages are mixable.

The Tiger for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for the introductory price of 25 EUR until March 6, 2012 (35% off regular 39 EUR). A free version with some limitations is also available.

H.G. Fortune releases Scapes Wizard 2 + free SoundFonts and patches

H.G. Fortune has announced the release of Scapes Wizard 2, a soundscape generator instrument for Windows.

ScapesWizard is a machine for soundscapes with very different control concept by triggering different samples assigned to keys via keyboard, or, using Lazy Sequencer to play the sets in sequence, or at random with varying intervals of step lengths. This is a completely reworked and largely enhanced version to its predecessor offering more dedicated and flexible control in general.

There are two different soundengines: Slow Motion Scapes (Main Slot 1&2), OneShots and Loops (FX, Natural, etc.) (Main Slot 3 & 4), Each slot has got a dedicated soundmodifier (color with resonance) plus pan, & delay with two sets of knobsettings for most controls. You got 2 x 24 samples (= 2 x 2 octaves) in direct access via keyboard and 2 sets to assign waves to keys with an optional pitch offset of +/- 12 semitones at each slot plus a further +/- 12 semitones per wave, slot and patch. So this makes 96 samples in straight access with a tuning range of max. +/- 2 octaves. Lazy Sequencer’s Ghost Mod will move (morph) between the two sets of knobsettings and this motion is visible on the GUI by respective knobs in motion. Furthermore nearly every knob has got a selectable modsource.

In fact with this machine it is quite important to assemble best matching waves for a project into the wave slots. You can trigger or gate i.e. switch samples with a dedicated tune setting via keyboard (with velocity to contol level) which is ideal for live interaction!

There is kind of keyboard split to trigger a sample of Slot 1 & 2 from C2 to B3 (left side) and Slot 3 & 4 from C4 to B5 (right side). So simply give a key a short push and the resp. sample will play until it’s changed by pushing another key in that resp. range; unless you select KeyMode Gate which allows to play a sample as long as a key is held down. Anyway you can play only one sample in each slot at a time. But those four samples played can give already quite a massive sound.

There is also an SF Slot Mode supporting sf2 files with stereo samples.

Scapes Wizard 2 Pro for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for the introductory price of 49 EUR until 31 October, 2011 (regular 79 EUR). A fully featured demo and a free mini version are also available.

H.G. Fortune is now also offering a collection of free SoundFonts and patches, created by users of H.G. Fortune plug-ins.

H.G. Fortune

H.G. Fortune has released Serenity, a virtual synthesizer instrument plugin for Windows.

Serenity – what it is and what it is not: This synthesizer is aimed to create various choir and string pad sounds but it is not meant to emulate this or that vintage string and/or choir machine. Though you might get sounds resembling quite nice the flavours of the old machines.

Serenity features

  • 2 x PCM wave oscillators with 128 waves in 2 banks as primary soundsources.
  • 1 x Filter – 3 types (LoPass, HiPass, BandPass) ADSR EG with Vel control on Attack & Decay, and 3 Response Modes.
  • 1 x 4 channel adaptive mixer for cutoff modulation.
  • 1 x VCA EG (ADSR) Vel control on Attack & Decay, and 3 Response Modes.
  • 1 x Pan.
  • 3 x LFO.
  • 1 x S&H.
  • 1 x DLFO (Double LFO with two outputs and phaseshifting).
  • 1 x special Pitch LFO with Speed Up/Down options.
  • 1 x Twin Etherify (2 Formant filter) with various modulation options.
  • 1 x Gator not only on Level but optional for Filter and delay Pan too.
  • 1 x Delay with several options for panning delayed signal.
  • 1 x Stereo Flanger.
  • 1 x Stereo Reverb.
  • 1 x Bass Enhance.
  • 1 x XY-Joypad with 6 controls for 12 destinations and optional display for LFO & Aftertouch motion.
  • 3 x Lazy Buttons.
  • 12 voices, over 760 patches (6 banks).

Serenity for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for the introductory price of 24.50 EUR / $34 USD until July 3rd, 2011 (regular price 39 EUR).

A free version with some limitations (3 voices, no internal patch management, no MIDI Learn, no velocity control on Attack / Decay of VCF / VCA EG, no SF2 Load, less patches (4 banks), but a hidden easter egg gimmick) is available to download from the Serenity product page.
