VirSyn has announced the release of AudioReverb for iOS, a studio quality reverb for Audiobus and your iTunes music library.
AudioReverb is an algorithmic reverberation app which combines the flexibility of vintage algorithmic reverbs with the sonic quality of convolution based reverbs.
The creation of high quality reverb needs a realistic simulation of the important early reflections together with a smooth and colorless reverberation tail.
The early reflections are the most important clue for the human ear to get a feeling about the dimension and character of a room. Most algorithmic reverbs offer a number of different algorithms to simulate different natural rooms like chamber, halls or artificial ones like plates. AudioReverb uses impulse responses from real acoustic spaces and classical reverb algorithms to emulate their acoustical properties.
The resulting reverberation sets new standards in clarity and sense of space! Use AudioReverb for enhancing your listening experience with your favourite iTunes songs. Use AudioReverb as professional reverb plugin to improve the quality of any Audiobus compatible App.
Plogue has announced the release of Chipcrusher, an advanced bitcrusher, a speaker simulator and noise machine effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
Chipcrusher features DAC Encoding, Background Noise and Post-Processing.
It’s an audio effect which plays back input audio through a simulation of early lofi digital audio codecs (DAC Encoding), adds grit (Background Noise), and outputs through a selection of speaker and filter impulse responses (Post-Processing).
It can work as a VST/AU/RTAS plug-in for most major sequencing audio programs and supported tracker programs on Windows and OS X.
There is a wide spectrum of results achievable with chipcrusher. Here’s a few use cases:
Uniquely destroy/mangle a beat, a guitar or any other audio track.
Play single hits and emulate the sound of old samplers.
Add ‘accurate dirt’ to chipsounds’s output.
Chipcrusher for Windows and Mac is available to purchase for $39 ex. VAT.
Patchpool has announced the release of Flagolet Guitar and Surreal Snippets, two Kontakt sample libraries created from excerpts from previously released soundsets for Camel Audio’s Alchemy.
Flagolet Guitar for Kontakt is taken from the Warped Strings soundset.
This soundset contains 4 guitar flagolet patches played on an acoustic western guitar and sampled in L-C-R using 3 high quality Neumann microphones. These samples and their electronic derivatives were originally produced for my Alchemy Bank Warped Strings.
Flagolet Guitar features
Kontakt 4, 66.6 MB unzipped, 48Khz/24Bit/stereo.
Includes 4 nkis/Instruments.
38 Samples compressed using Kontakt’s ncw format.
2 Impulse Responses.
The Flagolet Guitar for Kontakt costs 7.50 EUR.
Surreal Snippets is the first excerpt from Alchemistry Beyond for Alchemy.
This patch uses 5 instrumental snippets recorded during an improvisation wih several musicians and originally belongs to my Alchemy Bank Alchemistry Beyond. These snippets were later processed with various tools and all are split across the keyboard.
Surreal Snippets features
Kontakt 4, 33.2 MB unzipped, 48Khz/24Bit/stereo.
5 Samples compressed using Kontakt’s ncw format.
Surreal Snippets costs 4.50 EUR.
Customers who bought Warped Strings and/or Alchemistry Beyond can get the respective Kontakt packs at no cost.
Particular paint the world in color with Spectrality – Spatial Impulses; dimensional impulses of harmonic backdrops, singularity warps and a soothing plunge into the deepest interstellar space. Suitable for just any style needing a bit of unconventional acoustics.
This second installment in the Spectrality series is mostly created by sending something electronic – synthesizers or weird recordings – into a diverse range of effects and then through some analogue goodness on it’s way back. The result ranges from soothing depths to plain beautiful weirdness, and all in between.
