KX77FREE updates Kx-Modulad, Kx-Synth-x16, Kx-PolyMod & Kx-PolyM-CSE

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Jul 24, 2014 - comment 0 comments

KX77FREE has announced updates to its Kx-Modulad, Kx-Synth-x16, Kx-PolyMod, and Kx-PolyM-CSE free synthesizer instruments for Windows.

KX77FREE Kx-PolyM-CSE
Kx-PolyM-CSE is a vintage modular polyphonic synthesizer with CV/GATE sequencer and CS70M emulation.

Changes in KX77FREE plug-ins

  • Kx-Modulad v3.0:
    • News: Filters, Ring modulator, Fx, Envelopes, SF2 player, Distortion, Lfos, Host synchronization…
    • Oversampling available for some filters, the ring modulator and the distortion.
    • Now the Lfos are band limited and use the oscillator waveforms.
    • Oscillator phase reset (Gate) available in all modes (Poly, Mono, Unison).
    • Midi controllers with aftertouch like the Kx-PolyMod.
    • Unison mode with portamento (up to 3 voices).
    • Polyphony setting (2 to 6 voices).
    • Improvement of the S/N ratio of the Vco2 synchronization.
    • Improvement of the SF2 large banks and waveforms loading.
    • Improvement of the Scope by setting its rate to 15 hz.
    • SSE2 SEM modules, less cpu use (up to 25% won following the preset) and size.
    • SSE2 KxWaveTracer.exe.
  • Kx-Synth-x16 v5.0:
    • New SSE2 sem modules (less of cpu use and size).
    • New filter more close of the original filter (based of BLT’s recordings) and SVF filters added.
    • Now the Sustain time is adjusted with the On parameter when the envelopes are looped.
    • Possibility to adjust the levels of all main generators with only one knob (vcos, ring modulator, noise).
    • Under Bar host synchronization (envelopes).
    • Only two outputs for the compatibility with jBridge and some hosts.
    • Improvement of oscillators: reset, synchronization and waveforms loading.
    • Improvement of ring modulator: new oversampling filter and now the equalizer is before the inputs.
    • Improvement of sequencer: files loading and host synchronization.
    • Internal changes for use common modules with the others plug-ins.
    • Internal presets modified.
  • Kx-PolyMod v1.57:
    • 6 new filters: SV (type R, more resonance) and Vcs3 (based of BLT’s recordings).
    • Update of Fx filters (Sv to Sv type R).
    • S/N ratio of the Vco1 synchronization improved.
    • Improvement of MgL filters with the MgLQ and MgLQd, they are oversampled x4 and can use more resonance level, they replace the MgL2 and MgLd. Also the new resonance curve of the Lo* filter (renamed Mg*and Mgd*) is very close of the one of MglQ (less cpu use).
    • Possibility to disable the reset of oscillators.
    • Improvement of Kxmod generators.
    • Minor internal changes.
    • Fixed bug: The delay line of the MgLd filter for the oversampling interpolation input was not boosted like the input signal.
  • Kx-PolyM-CSE v1.1d:

Sound Dust releases Modular Chaos Engine libraries Found & Evolved

Sound Dust has announced the release of Modular Chaos Engine #1 – Found and Modular Chaos Engine #2 – Evolved, two instrument libraries for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Sound Dust Modular Chaos Engine #1 - Found

For the past 10 years or so I’ve always carried some kind of portable recording device and a pair of OKM in ear microphones around with me and kept a kind of aural diary of great sounding things and great sounding places. I’ve made literally gazillions of recordings in places all over this side of the world, and like most diaries these recordings have mainly been sitting in dark cupboards waiting for someone to rediscover them…

The Modular Chaos Engine is the perfect repository for 785 of them. I’ve selected the most usefully percussive, clangy, bangy, thumpy, boomy, itchy, scratchy, thwacky and whacky, added a really powerful sequencing engine and made a “found sound” drum machine.

Modular Chaos Engine #1 – Found features

  • 785 individual samples ( including up to 20 variations of each sound) mapped to 12 sample engines from C1 upwards.
  • 160mb download.
  • 12 complex 12 track sequencers triggered from keys C0 and above (adjustable).
  • The Chaos button for instant randomisation.
  • The Order button for an instant return to normality.
  • Comprehensive editing with quick edit system for control of all sounds together, or indivual editing of tune, time, low pass filter, high pass filter, attack, decay and volume.
  • Individual per engine articulation controls.
  • Separate sequence tracks for sound selection, accent, decay, pan and tuning per note.
  • Chaotic “looper” control with 32 looping algorithms.
  • All controls midi learnable.
  • Inbuilt instruction manual.

“Modular Chaos Engine #2 – Evolved” features a fully electronic instrument.

Sound Dust Modular Chaos Engine #2 - Evolved

Its probably no secret that this time i’ve exploited the strange and rather wonderful qualities of Dave Smiths’ criminally underated analog/digital masterpiece the Evolver. I LOVE this underdog synth because it has so much wonky personality and a wonderful architecture that can produce some really great sounds….usually of a slightly boisterous nature.

So, for this Chaos Engine there are up to 127 different sounds/articulations per key which are very loosely mapped across the keys from from low kick drum type sounds through snappy snare type sounds up to more clicky, rattly hats and then the mildly melodic sounds up near the top end of the key range.

Modular Chaos Engine #2 – Evolved features

  • 1106 individual samples ( including up to 20 variations of each sound) mapped to 12 sample engines from C1 upwards.
  • 283mb download.
  • 12 complex 12 track sequencers triggered from keys C0 and above (adjustable).
  • The Chaos button for instant randomisation.
  • The Order button for an instant return to normality.
  • Comprehensive editing with quick edit system for control of all sounds together, or indivual editing of tune, time, low pass filter, high pass filter, attack, decay and volume.
  • Individual per engine articulation controls.
  • Separate sequence tracks for sound selection, accent, decay, pan and tuning per note.
  • Chaotic “looper” control with 32 looping algorithms.
  • All controls midi learnable.
  • Inbuilt instruction manual.

The sample libraries are available for purchase for £20 GBP each, or bundled for £35 GBP.
