Lexicon updates PCM96 / PCM96 Surround software to v3.2.0.1

Lexicon PCM96 Surround

Lexicon has released version of the PCM96 and PCM96 Surround software for Mac OS X.

This update enhances the Hardware Plug-In function to increase the software stability and performance. Software version represents a major overhaul of the streaming and control functionality to make it less processor intensive.

Changes in PCM96/PCM96 Surround software v3.2.0.1

  • Support of ProTools 8: Resolved numerous PT8 issues.
  • Fixed problems in OS X 10.5.7 on PPC Macs. NOTE: this required building a separate installer for PPC for OS X 10.4.X Macs. The main installer is for 10.5.7 PPC Macs and ALL Intel Macs.
  • Decoupled PCM96 plug-ins: when you are using multiple PCM96 plugs on separate tracks you will no longer have problems due to no audio on sections of those tracks (previously you would get a processor overload from the DAW). This also allows you to use bypass and mute/solo of tracks.
  • Initial testing has been done in Digital Performer 8.
  • Initial testing has been done in Logic 9.
  • The PCM96Configurator display has been changed to handle multiple PCM96 and PCM96 Surround processors.
  • Fix to front panel meters so they work properly when using the PCM96s in control only mode.
  • The display values for the Tail Width parameter have been changed. As before, the width is expressed in degrees, with special text for particularly interesting values. These values would include “Stereo”, “Mono”, “Logic7″ and so on. Those special values were shown in the wrong location, but have now been corrected. There is absolutely NO CHANGE in the sound of any factory or user presets, although the Tail Width parameter display may appear different in some presets.
  • The “Overload protection level” selector has been added to the “Communications” menu to allow users to get rid of DAW processor overloads. Depending on the speed of your computer, this will give you the opportunity to reduce latency in streaming mode by a full burst size.
  • Fixes to infrequent DAW hangs which occur when switching between mono and stereo plugs.

Note: Software version is the latest version for both the PCM96 and the PCM96 Surround. There are separate installers and firmware for the PCM96 and the PCM96 Surround.

Ryan Gruss Volume II

Some interesting things I found recently:

# A Deal You Can’t Refuse |

Ryan is about to release Volume II of his subscription based drum loops service, so in the next few days you can get over 200 loops for only $9.95.

As I’m putting the finishing touches on Gruss Loops Volume II, I realized I should make you painfully aware of the sweet deal that currently lays before you. You see, since I’m offering the loop packs as a subscription service, there will be over 200 loops available over the course of the next two days. That’s right. You could sign up now, grab Volume I right now AND Volume II in another 24 hours…. all for the rock bottom price of $9.95. You can even cancel after you nab both of the packs. See if I care (you cheap bastard). I know you’ll be back for more.

# PCM 70 Ver 2 & Ver 3 SysEx Preset Registers

Eric Beam has SysEx register dumps from Lexicon’s PCM 70 Ver 2 and 3.

The PCM 70 Ver 2 & Ver 3 have completely different Preset Registers. Many upgraded to Ver 3 to gain the Inverse Room algorithm but lost the coveted Ver 2 Preset Registers in the process.

# SX-150 synth mod instructions, schematics and code

MrBook Gakken SX-150 hack

MrBook did a lovely Arduino hack on the Gakken SX-150, adding MIDI and audio out.

Many people have asked about the instructions and code for the SX-150 mod I did to add MIDI and Audio out, therefore I’m posting the plans for everyone to try. By using the Arduino as the brains of the operation, a lot of other options are available for the mod, really the sky is the limit. If you do any cool hacks to it, by all means, please let me know.

# Return To The Hallway #free #samples

More free samples by Kent Williams:

This set was inspired by our elderly dryer dying — well, the belt driving the drum snapped, so I took the back off to see if it was user serviceable. Confronted with even more stamped sheet metal cowlings, I gave up and bought a new dryer.

But that giant cover was just begging to be tapped, banged and otherwise made to reverberate. Added to that are some pot lids and other random noise-making things, including a plastic tarp on the floor. The ‘kik’ sample was made from me bumping the mic stand, and the surpisingly convincing ’snarish’ is me sneezing.

Luca de Rosso OTTO


OTTO by Luca de Rosso is an electronic musical instrument for realtime manual beat slicing of audio samples.

OTTO provides a tangible user interface designed with the aim of giving the user the feel of having the sample in his hands. The musician can manipulate an audio sample in real time through the use of a restricted number of simple physical buttons and switches.

Acousticas releases Lexicon 480 IR library

Acousticas L480

Acousticas has released L480, an impulse repsonse library featuring the Lexicon 480.

Today we are releasing our impulse response version of what have managed to manifest itself
as the “Studio Standard” throughout many years. Amazing for making sound appear distant but yet present. Consisting of 711 unique impulse responses this library covers a wide range of the capabilities of the Lexicon 480.

The library has been divided into 9 categories ranging from the complete Lexicon Factory presets to carefully tweaked plates, churches and chambers etc. One we really like is the “Stereo Maker”. This edition is very special and is exclusively made for providing width to any sound source. A cluster of 4 delays have been assembled to achive this and the delay time is variable by adding multipliers to the delay times.

The L480 IR Library is available for purchase for 69 EUR.

Visit Acousticas for more information, a demo video and audio clips.
