AudioRealism releases ReDominator for Reason

AudioRealism ReDominator

AudioRealism has released ReDominator, a polyphonic synthesizer Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason.

ReDominator is an emulation of the classic Alpha Juno 1/2 (JU-1/2), a polyphonic DCO (digitally controlled oscillator) based synth from 1986.

The JU-1/2 became popular in the early 90’s techno and rave scene particularly by the classic Hoover sound (which ReDominator attempts to emulate accurately). But beyond those niche sounds there lays a versatile synthesizer that does bass, pads, leads, organs and a lot of other sounds waiting to be discovered!

ReDominator features

  • Accurate emulation of the Alpha Juno 1/2 including the famous Hoover patch.
  • 14 different low aliasing waveforms including a unique PWM-sawtooth.
  • High quality full range 24dB/octave low-pass filter.
  • Unique 8 parameter envelope generator which enable much more complicated and expressive sounds than a standard ADSR.
  • External audio input to the filter.
  • 200+ bundled patches (of which many are sysex converted from our own JU-2).
  • External Patch converter (beta) to convert sysex patches from your own Alpha Juno and play them in ReDominator.

ReDominator is available to purchase for 45 EUR.

Plughugger Deity for Omnisphere

Plughugger has released Deity, a sound expansion of 150 new sounds for the Spectrasonics Omnisphere aimed for modern dance music.

In the third installation of the Sound Expansion series for Omnisphere, Plughugger turn their focus on one of the real synthesizer legends: the Juno from Roland.

The Roland Juno is one of those rare synthesizers that despite its stunningly simple operation can cover pretty much every thing a House producer would want. Great bass, big pads and defined leads.

The model Spectrasonics used for Omnisphere was the Juno 60 and there are a total of 31 waveforms ranging from squelchy acid-like leads to deep organs and incredibly lush pads, which we used to create 100 new sounds.

As with the previous Virus and JP8000 expansions, Plughugger also included 50 additional presets that are built upon the virtual analog oscillators in Omnisphere.

Deity features

  • 150 sounds for Omnisphere
    • Bass categories: Arpeggio, Dark, Distorted, FM, Interval, Snappy, Stacked, Sub.
    • Lead categories: Arpeggio, Bright Pluck, Soft Pluck.
    • Pad categories: Big, Bright, Gated, Soft.
    • Chords categories: Arpeggio, Chord Stab.

The Deity soundset costs 9.90 EUR.

Wave Alchemy intros Synth Drums + Free taster pack

Wave Alchemy Synth Drums Taster

Wave Alchemy has announced a free taster pack of the upcoming Synth Drums, a sample library featuring drum sounds from vintage synthesizers.

Imagine taking ten of the most sought-after vintage synthesizers in history, synthesizing hundreds of drum sounds with each instrument and processing each of these sounds individually using a carefully thought out high-end signal chain and you are getting a little closer to understanding the concept of our forthcoming Synth Drums sample library…

What synths have we used you might ask? Here is a list of the instruments used to create the raw source material for Synth Drums:

Roland Jupiter 8, Roland System-100 (101, 102, 104), Sequential Circuits Prophet 5 Rev 2, Sequential Circuits Pro One, Korg MS-20, ARP Odyssey MK1, Moog Minimoog Model D, Oberheim OB8, Roland Juno 106, Roland SH-09.

When complete (soon!) Synth Drums will contain thousands of unique, 100% original synthesized drum hits and percussive samples. We wanted the library to be as flexible as possible, and so we have decided to include all of the unprocessed synthesized source material, as well as expertly processed versions of each and every drum sound (including analogue tape and vinyl variations)!

The free Synth Drums taster pack includes 200 processed drum sounds taken directly from the forthcoming library. The full Synth Drums Collection is scheduled for release in mid-April.

Togu Audio Line U-NO-LX updated to v2 + Price reduction

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Sep 25, 2012 - comment 0 comments

Togu Audio Line has announced the release of TAL-U-NO-LX V2, an updated version of the virtual synthesizer instrument modeled after the Roland Juno 60.

We released version 2.0 of TAL-U-NO-LX. This version includes an improved filter that is more accurate and warmer, especially at extreme values with a lot resonance. Old presets are compatible with this version. We released it as a new version that can run parallel to the old plugin.

The chorus was callibrated too. This version includes some more non-linear components and needs a bit more CPU, but we think the improved sound is worth it. This update is free for all TAL-U-NO-LX users!

TAL-U-NO-LX
U-The NO-LX Juno 60 emulation gets an improved filter and more.

Changes in U-NO-LUX v2.0

  • Improved filter sound.
  • Improved and new calibrated chorus.
  • Portability mode. Also reads presets that are saved in the plugin sub folder: “/TAL-U-NO-LX/presets/”.

The U-NO-LX plug-in for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is now available for the reduced price of $40 USD for an unlimited time.
