Mini-review: Le Lotus Bleu Magic Wand

Le Lotus Bleu Magic Wand

Le Lotus Bleu recently released Magic Wand, its first soundset for Camel Audio’s Alchemy, a sample manipulation synthesizer plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Magic Wand is suitable for all kinds of musical genres, and offers a mix of pure synthesis, rompler like, and hybrid instruments. It proposes an hopefully pleasant mix between Bread and Butter and unique and never heard instruments.

All the instruments have been carefully designed to take advantage of the 8 variations Remix Pads of Alchemy, as well as its awesome real time control possibilities.

Magic Wand includes bass, keys, pads, leads, arps, chord sequences, some semi-real instruments and more. The soundset features a total of 158 instruments: 101 meta instruments, about 50 “Z presets” and a few “XV presets”.

Magic Wand features

  • More than 300 distinct instruments, with the use of the Remix Pads.
  • Highly expressive instruments, with many real time expression features.
  • Integrated use of Macro Knobs : For example all FX automation will always be found on Macro Knobs 5/6.
  • Fully compliant with any Camel Audio future Content Management and Database developments.
  • A Pdf manual including preset list, with an individual comment for each instrument, installation procedure, tips and tricks for Alchemy.
Magic Wand Z presets

Since Alchemy’s remix pads can contain different sounds for one and the same preset, Magic Wand includes “Z presets”.

These are basically duplicates of existing meta instruments, saved on alternate remix pads – which have a different type of sound than the initial sound (useful when browsing for a specific type of sound). A number of “XV presets” are included for the same reason. These are derivatives of meta instruments, with various modified parameters. You could say they are actually “new” instruments but Le Lotus Bleu chose to include them as bonus presets. They can be seen as tutorials on how to create these sounds from the initial presets so you can learn some sound design as well.

You can find a number of excellent audio demos on the Le Lotus Bleu site; a proper showcase by Magic Wand sound designer Laurent.

Note: Magic Wand is offered as part of the Fair Play Sales Program, a system which rewards early adopters with more than 50% free additional instruments in future updates. Currently it is available to purchase for 17 EUR until 21 January, 2010.

So what do I think?

Product: Magic Wand by Le Lotus Bleu
Format: Presets (native Alchemy format)
Price: 17 EUR until 21 January, 2010 (regular 25 EUR)

Magic Wand aims to provide a mix of bread & butter sounds and unique sounds, and it delivers. The presets are very inspiring and musical. The remix pads do really provide many sounds that differ from the initial preset sound, so you get a lot more than 158 instruments.

In short, a great soundset with plenty of variety in sounds for a nice price.

KV331 Audio releases SynthMaster v2.0

KV331 SynthMaster

KV331 Audio has announced the release of version 2.0 of SynthMaster, its flagship semi-modular software synthesizer for Windows.

The new version introduces layers, “analog”-modelled filters, massive modulation capabilities, additive/wavetable/wavescanning synthesis, rich wavetable content, 580 ready to use factory presets, a comprehensive preset browser and a skin/interface editor that allows the customization of SynthMaster’s user interface.

Changes in SynthMaster v2.0

  • Layers: In SynthMaster 2.0, every voice consists of 2 layers. Each layer has its own Arpeggiator/Sequencer, 2 Oscillators, 2 Multimode filters, 4 Modulators, 4 ADSR Envelopes, 2 Multistage Envelopes, 2 LFOs, 4 KeyScalers and Distortion/LoFi/4 Band EQ effects.
  • “Analog” filters: SynthMaster now sounds warmer with the addition of “analog” LP/HP/BP/BS filters modelled after the famous “Ladder” filter. Aside from those, 1/2/3/4 stage allpass and comb filters are new additions as well.
  • “Wavetable/Wavescanning” oscillators: With the addition of Wavetable/wavescanning synthesis in SynthMaster 2,0, now it is possible to create very complex and evolving sounds using up to 16 wavetables and smoothly sequencing between them.
  • Massive Modulation Capabilities: It is possible to modulate almost every continuous parameter in SynthMaster 2.0 using LFOs, Envelopes, KeyScalers, MIDI Velocity, MIDI Aftertouch or MIDI Controllers, which makes it possible to create very complex sounds with SynthMaster 2.0.
  • Rich Wavetable Content: Aside from the 128 factory wavetables licensed from Galbanum, 330 user wavetables selected with permission from the publicly available Muz3um for Rapture patch set also comes with SynthMaster 2.0. For users that want more, they are free to import their own single cycle waveforms in WAV format as well.
  • Rich Preset Content: To show the power of SynthMaster 2.0, a talented team of professional sound designers formed by Scot Solida, LeLotusBleu Sound Design, Xenos Soundworks, CFA-Audio, KV331 Audio’s own Teoman Pasinlioğlu, as well as fellow beta testers Ingonator and FragileX have created 580 ready to use presets in a wide range of genres/styles such as Ambient, Chillout, Dance, Disco, DnB, Electronica, HipHop, Pop, Rave and Trance.
  • Preset Browser: With the addition of a preset browser users can now easily find the sound they’re looking for in SynthMaster 2.0 by filtering through instrument type, attributes, music style or author name.
  • Skin Editor: SynthMaster 2.0 comes with its WYSIWYG skin editor which allows the users to easily customize the look of SynthMaster, or to create new skins with different layouts.
  • Serial Number Copy Protection Only: Unlike the first version, SynthMaster 2.0 uses only serial number copy protection.

SynthMaster 2.0 is available at the introductory price of $59 USD until December 31, 2009 (regular price $99 USD). A demo version of SynthMaster 2.0 is available to download from the KV331 Audio website.
