Image-Line has posted a video demo of the VFX Key Mapper, a plugin for use in the Patcher chaining tool of its FL Studio music production software.
Designed exclusively for use in Patcher, VFX Key Mapper’s matrix allows you to re-map any note input to any other note output or to multiple notes to create 1-finger chords. All those years spent practicing your scales just went to waste! :)
The ‘Voice Effect’ or VFX Key Mapper was released along with the FL Studio 10.10 beta, available to download from the Image-Line forum. New Image-Line customers can purchase FL Studio with 10% discount here.
Image-Line has announced it has released a 64-bit beta version of its FL Studio music production software for Windows.
We are happy to announce that the FL Studio 64 Bit beta is now available from Looptalk for testing. While FL Studio can already host 64 Bit plugins, this beta moves the core FL Studio application and associated components to native 64 Bit operation.
The beta includes 64 Bit releases of most FL Studio ‘native format’ plugins & components such as Edison, Newtone, Sytrus, Slicex, Harmor, Gross Beat, Vocodex etc. Click on the image above to read up on the full details of the 64 Bit beta release and start testing.
FL Studio 64-bit (and 64-bit VST versions of most plugins) are available to download for registered users. New Image-Line customers can purchase FL Studio and other Image-Line products with a 10% discount.
Rankin Audio has launched FL Studio Projects, a sound library featuring 5 project files for Image-Line FL Studio 10.
Using the ammunition in the Rankin Audio archives we have created 5 complete tracks in FL Studio using the DAW’s built-in plugins and NI Massive. You will be able to edit, rework, remix, chop, screw and do anything you like to them. You will be able to see how each channel is made up, the FX chains, the EQ, the compression, the side chaining, everything. You will be able to look in depth at how the bass is balanced with the drums, where to put different synths in the mix and beyond.You can see how the drums are programed, how each hit is effected and placed in the mix. For the first time you can look at a track from the ground up and rework the principles with your own style into new productions.
Focusing as always on the heavy dancefloor driven bass music this pack come with 5 tracks including Dubstep, Drumstep, Trap, Electro and 110bpm. This gives you the perfect spectrum of bass music for you to delve in to.
Black Octopus Sound presents a selection of tools designed specifically for resampling – the first of its kind! Created to work with the Harmor additive synthesizer, this selection of tools is designed to turn wimpy lifeless synth sounds into beast-like face eating growls and robot dinosaur snarls.
Resampling is the process of taking some recorded audio and loading it back into a sampler or resynthesis engine, adding a few fx or minor tweaks, re-recording the audio again – rinse and repeat. This process allows for some very interesting tones not possible with regular synthesis methods. Resampling can be heard often in many drum and bass and dubstep producers tracks, great examples of resampling can be heard in the legendary electronic group Noisia.
Mutate: Harmor Resampling Tools features
Channel Presets 9 Harmor presets which range from massive detuned reeses to crunchy distorted basses. 2 Sytrus presets – one classic reese and one utilizing FM synthesis to obtain monster like tones. As a bonus there is also a Mixer FX track preset for FL Studio to beef up your sounds, a love filter preset for some extra modulation, one massive Harmor riser, a demo FLP, and an empty resampling template FLP to get you started.
Resampling presets The real fun of this pack, 23 Harmor presets to drag and drop audio in. They are skillfully crafted with precision to add just the right amount of subtle transformation to your sound. They are also chained together in groups (for example Bitten B1, Bitten B2, Bitten B3) to eliminate the guesswork of what presets sound good together. There are no rules however – mix and match and come up with your own favorite combinations.
In total there are 38 presets. Please note Image-line Harmor is required for most of this pack. Sytrus is also used for 2 presets.
The sound pack is available to purchase for £6.95 GBP.
