On top of that, the controls can be modulated using midi sources or by one of the 4 build in LFOs that can sync to your host tempo. The distortion unit offers 22 distortion types included ring modulator and lo-fi.

RP-Distort is a wicked FX unit that will distort or alter your tracks in an inspirational way.

Cupwise FX Radio Junk effect plugin

Cupwise FX Radio Junk

Cupwise FX has entered the Radio Junk effect plugin in the KVR Developer Challenge 2012.

Radio Junk is a small but unique suite of effects made from 2 junky old radios, one solid-state (from the 70s) and the other a tube radio (from the 50s). The radios were ‘sampled’ using technology similar but superior to the common convolution impulses out there. It’s called Nebula, and it can capture the sound of what’s being sampled at different dynamic levels, and it can also capture some of the distortion, unlike standard convolution.

These effects use a variant of the Nebula tech called ‘Acqua’, which just means that these are stand-alone effects, and you don’t need Nebula to load them (it’s built in, basically). The radios were sampled in extreme ways to get some nasty lo-fi effects.

Since these were made with the Nebula technology, they will sound different from other plug-ins out there.

Radio Junk is available to download as a freeware VST effect plug-in.

Psychic Modulation Phonec synth plugin updated to v1.1

Psychic Modulation Phonec

Psychic Modulation has updated its Phonec software synthesizer for Windows to version 1.1.

Phonec is best described as an ‘analog flux synthesizer’. Inspired by the mystique of video logo synth scores from worn out VHS tapes, Phonec was primarily designed with character in mind.

However Phonec is capable of producing a wide range of sounds such as vintage analogue tones, lo-fi synthscapes, ethereal pads, minimal techno sequences, and synthwave leads and basses.

Changes in Phonic v1.1

  • Pitchwheel now works properly.
  • New LFO targets: Osc 1&2 Level, Sub, Noise, and Echoshifter Detune.
  • Added Phase controls to LFOs (Phase acts as glide with Random; acts as pulsewidth with Pulse).
  • Added previous/next buttons to patch display for ease of use.
  • Added 2x switch to filter: switches to 2-stage, 4-pole, 24db filter.
  • Melt hidden panel now ignores patch change.
  • Various minor GUI fixes.

Phonec is available to purchase as a VST instrument plug-in for Windows, priced at $39 USD.
