Complex Musicbox for Aalto

Complex has announced Musicbox, a free soundset for the Aalto modular software synthesizer by Madrona Labs.

It was a great fun do this soundset because Aalto is a unpredictable and powerful instrument. Sometimes I was having in mind one concrete sound, but patching one cable to the wrong place have unexpected and surprising effects!

Due to the architecture of this synth I decided to do a section of Machines and a section of Sounds, these to sections are very random and unpredictable. The section of Percussions is full of Buchla like sounds, very innovative drums here.

This soundset have my personal revolutionary taste, I use this sounds in my music and sound designs.

Musicbox features

  • 83 patches for Aalto:
    • 20 “Machines” patches.
    • 27 “Sounds” patches.
    • 19 “Percussions” patches.
    • 17 “Keys” patches.

The soundset is a free download.

Aalto Solo Beat Special Edition

Beat is offering a free copy of the Aalto Solo software synthesizer by Madrona Labs at its Facebook page.

Der Aalto Solo aus der Feder von Madrona-Labs-Mastermind Randy Jones entpuppt sich als ganz besonderer Klangerzeuger, der seine Stärken bei experimentellen Sounds und Modulations-Orgien ausspielt. Dass er sich dafür intern fast nach Belieben neu „verdrahten“ lässt, setzt der Kreativität kaum Grenzen. Mit Oszillator und nachfolgendem Waveguide gelingen charismatische Sounds; Hüllkurven, LFO, Filter und Sequenzer runden die Klangformung ab.

Aalto Solo is a one voice version of the Aalto semi-modular software synthesizer with an innovative, patchable UI, distinctive sounds, and a charming personality.

The Beat Special Edition of Aalto Solo is available to download for its Facebook fans

Fingermarks releases Drone Machines for Aalto

Madrona Labs Aalto

Stephen Wey of Fingermarks has introduced Drone Machines, a soundset for the Aalto virtual modular software synthesizer by Madrona Labs.

This bank of 85 presets for MadronaLabs Buchla inspired Aalto synthesiser is comprised largely of self generating sounds that drift and evolve slowly (somewhat like Metaphysical Function but synthesised, not based on samples).

These are not typical “bread and butter” sounds but mostly subtle sounds that invite quiet contemplation or that create droning, shifting, walls of soundscape. Most can just be left to run, others can also be played using the keys and will interact with the player. There are also a few pads and bell-like sounds as well. Several sounds also have more than one variation.

The soundset is available at a “pay-what-you-like” price, with a minimum of $5 USD.

Madrona Labs Aalto

Madrona Labs has released version 1.2.6 of Aalto, a virtual semi-modular synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

Aalto’s sound engine lets you create sounds that have been difficult or impossible to make with softsynths before now. The heart of Aalto is a Buchla-inspired complex oscillator, with FM, timbre and waveshape controls that enable a wide range of expressive sounds. These sounds are uniquely malleable and alive, in part because they are made with dynamic calculation, not static wavetables.

Changes in Aalto v1.2.6

  • Improved performance.
  • Optimized patch loading.
  • Fixed Logic dropouts, improved Logic CPU spikes.
  • Fixed Live 7 UI hangs.
  • Fixed Sonar crash.
  • Fixed Maschine scan crash.
  • Fixed multislider parameter behavior.
  • Added debug diagnostics.
  • Smaller executable.

Aalto is available to purchase for $99 USD (Win VST & Mac VST/AU). The update is free for registered Aalto users.
