MaxSynths LFO Filter

Stereo filter module to add some movement to sounds. Ideal for pads, drum loops, etc. The divisor time for left and right channels are independent for a more deep effect.

NOTE: the stereo filter syncs to the host bar position. It only works when the sequencer play button is engaged.

MaxSynths announces Cryologic Promo

MaxSynths Cryologic

Maxsynths has announced a promotion for Cryologic, a SoundFont library and Player for Windows.

Cryologic is a soundfont library and a soundfont player very simple and easy to use. The SF-Oscillators allows to layer up to three different sounds with separate controls for level, pan, and octave shift for each osc. The filter is a classic state variable filter tweakable also via the X-Y controller. The two arpeggiators are a powerful feature which allows to create interesting patches, complex automatic bass lines, chord accompaniment and complex textures. The onboard reverb, delay and an internal ring modulator effect provides the final touch to this little yet powerful music production tool. A soundfont library of 456MB is included.

Until the end of August, you can purchase a copy of Cryologic for 15 EUR, a 50% discount on the regular price of 30 EUR. Note: this special deal was initially only available for KVR users, but is now open to anyone.

MaxSynths Teutonic Tension

MaxSynths has released Teutonic Tension, a soundbank for reFX Vanguard by DJ Raff.

Teutonic Tension has been designed by DJ Raff under express request by MaxSynths. In his own words he is a “hard style maniac”. For this reason I’ve asked to him if he was interested to work at this project. So here it is! One of the best collection of sounds for reFX Vanguard which, once again, proved to be a great and very versatile synth destined to be a classic.

Teutonic Tension features

  • 128 patches programmed with nordic acid music in mind.
  • Includes: 32 arpeggiated patches, 23 gated sounds, 54 synth patches (riff sounds, leads, bass, pads and keys) and 19 sound FX.
  • The arpeggiated and gated patches provides the ideal starting point for your tracks backbone, the synth and FX patches will complete the job.

Teutonic Tension is available for purchase for an introductory price of 10.99 EUR.

Review: MaxSynths Cryologic

MaxSynths Cryologic

MaxSynths recently released Cryologic, a soundfont library and a soundfont player.

From the manual:

Based on the same logical structure of Cryogenic, Cryologic is a soundfont library and a soundfont player very simple and easy to understand. The Soundfont Oscillators allows to layer up to three sounds with separate control for level, pan, and octave for each osc. The filter is a classic state variable filter tweakable also via the X-Y controller. The two arpeggiators are a powerful feature which allows to create interesting patches, complex automatic bass lines, chord accompaniment and complex textures. The onboard reverb, delay and an internal ring modulator effect provides the final touch to this little yet powerful music production tool.

Cryologic comes with a 456 MB soundfont library featuring 74 soundfont files. It is available for purchase for 30 EUR (includes worldwide shipping).

Note: The Cryologic soundfont player was done in SynthEdit, so it is available as a VST instrument for Windows PC.

So what do I think?

Who needs another soundfont player? There are lots of freeware players available for Windows PC (Fretted Synth SaFron, Terry West Take1, etc.), so the Cryologic soundfont player needs to add something to be of value… and it does. The 3 soundfont slots allowing you to mix soundfonts, the arps, effect units… I haven’t found any free players that combine all these things. That said, it is not likely you’re looking to spend 30 EUR on a soundfont player, so the main thing here are the actual soundfonts.

Cryologic includes a number of traditional instruments like brass, keys, flute and bass, and some electronic sounds of synths, leads, pads and such. I don’t know what sound sources were used to create these soundfonts, but to me they sound a bit dated. Depending on what type of music you like, that could be a good thing or not. Trance addicts probably don’t need to bother, but if you think the best music in the world is 80′s pop you might want to check Cryologic.

There are some 60 demo clips available on the Cryologic product page, so go have a listen to these sound previews to see what you think.
