Intelligent Sounds & Music has released version 2.5.0 of its BazzISM kick drum synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

Intelligent Sounds & Music BazzISM

BazzISM produces the perfect KickBass for your dance tracks.

If you produce your bass-kicks building sine sweeps and EQing them you can get the same or even better results with BazzISM in seconds that took hours before.

Changes in BazzISM v2.5.0

  • Numeric input for most parameters.
  • Double size editor, optional or automatic for 4k/UHD/Retina displays.
  • Fixed: Changing parameters in Pro Tools (AAX) sometimes remote-controlled additional instances of BazzISM or even lead to a crash.
  • Fixed: Reloading a project in Pro Tools often lead to the default state.
  • Fixed: In Cubase the “Switch to B Setting” function took about a minute with VST2.

BazzISM for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase for 30 EUR.

BeepStreet releases Sunrizer subtractive synth for Mac

Related: , , Posted in news on Mar 04, 2015 - comment 0 comments

BeepStreet has released a Mac AU version of Sunrizer, the subtractive synth that first debuted on iPad.

BeepStreet Sunrizer

Sunrizer is built upon a familiar subtractive synth design – but with a distinct character and a host of unique features. It starts with two oscillators and two sub-oscillators that deliver all of the basic waveforms and a perfect emulation of JP-8000 “supersaw”, with pulse width, frequency and ring modulation plus a lush unison mode.

The oscillators are fed into two powerful filters with serial or parallel routing, offering traditional low-, high- and band-pass modes as well as comb, resonator, waveshaper, and frequency shifter algorithms – and more. To set all this in motion, Sunrizer has two ADSR envelopes and two LFO generators that can modulate virtually any parameter.

Sunrizer features

  • Bespoke synth engine with 24 voice polyphony and very low processor load.
  • Two oscillators with multiple waveform types, hard-sync, pulse width modulation.
  • Oscillator mixer with ring modulator and separate noise source.
  • Per-oscillator unison function with variable detune and spread.
  • Two separate filter units with serial or parallel operation and 16 different algorithms each: low-, high- and band-pass, notch, comb, formant I/II, all-pass, power low- and band-pass, waveshaper, resonator, resampler, low-pass + resampler, frequency shifter, analog low-pass.
  • Two ADSR envelope generators.
  • Two LFO generators with sine, triangle, saw, square, sample & hold and random
  • waveforms; variable phase, fade-in time and different trigger modes.
  • Master effects including chorus, phaser, rotor, EQ, delay and reverb.
  • Arpeggiator with deep sequencing capabilities.
  • Chord memory function.
  • A-B parameter morph feature: essentially two synth patches in one.
  • Factory sound bank with over 400 preset patches; full patch compatibility with the iPad version.

Sunrizer for Mac (AU) is available for purchase for the introductory price of $50 USD/45 EUR + VAT in EU (regular $80 USD).

Applied Acoustics Systems releases Raw for Ultra Analog VA-2

Applied Acoustics Systems has announced the release of Raw, a sound bank for the Ultra Analog VA-2 synthesizer and AAS Player plug-ins in collaboration with artist and sound designer Andre Ettema.

Applied Acoustics Systems Raw

From subtle warmth to screaming distortion, Raw relies on the natural overdrive of Ultra Analog VA-2’s filters and its builtin effects to propose a surprisingly varied set of unpolished, gritty, and dirty sounds. Raw is Andre Ettema’s fourth title in the AAS sound bank series. This collection of 100 signature presets is divided into six categories: Bass, Effect, Keys, Leads, Movers, and Pads.

“Ultra Analog can sure play the bad guy and we were very excited when Andre Ettema came up with the idea of exploiting this lesser-known side of its personality,“ says Marc-Pierre Verge, CEO of Applied Acoustics Systems, “Raw is a very original and distinctive sound bank that is great fun to play with and which showcases beautifully the great versatility of Ultra Analog VA-2.”

Raw is available for purchase for the introductory price of $29 USD until March 17th, 2015 (regular $39 USD). Includes both a Ultra Analog VA-2 bank file and the free AAS Player plug-in for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX).
