Madrona Labs Kaivo

Hi there! For the past three months, I’ve been working on an update to Kaivo, and it’s finally time to roll it out. I’ve tuned up the audio engine, improved the graphics and spent many hours finding and fixing a whole host of minor UI issues that made people including me go “grrrr” sometimes.

Thanks as always for your support, and all the feedback you have sent my way about the 1.0 version. This 1.1 release is feeling buttery smooth here, and I hope it gives you many happy hours diving into sound.

Changes in Kaivo v1.1

  • Over 50 new factory patches.
  • Optimized DSP code (10-20% improvement).
  • Made demo reminder noise quieter.
  • Added a new audio import dialog.
  • Trimmed and optimized source samples.
  • Fixed a compatibility problem with Soundplane.
  • Improved model sonics in high frequencies.
  • Improved resonator tuning.
  • Increased range of resonator damping parameter.
  • Improved legibility of scope dials.
  • Fixed a problem saving the window location.
  • Fixed glitches in xy scope display.
  • Improved typography.
  • Improved granulator view speed.
  • Fixed annoying disappearing menu issue.
  • Fixed keyboard stealing issue in 64-bit VST.
  • Added case-insensitive sort for patch menu.
  • Fixed audio issues with body nonlinearity.

u-he has announced the release of ACE 1.3, the latest update to the modular synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

u-he ACE

ACE belongs to a new generation of synthesizers developed with the latest, fastest computers in mind. ACE offers classic modular synthesis and more at a fraction of the cost of dedicated hardware. But like its hardware forebears, you can patch any output into any input: the number of different ways to connect modules together is practically infinite. Needless to say, you will never run out of cables!

Changes in ACE v1.3

  • 200 new presets by Howard Scarr.
  • New oscilloscope options – fire! glow!
  • New mapping generator drawing tools.
  • Filter reset.
  • UI display options improved – brightness options, antialiased text.
  • Bug fixes.
  • AAX support.
  • Check the changelog for details.

ACE for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available for purchase for 69 EUR.

u-he intros ACE 1.3 release candidate

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on May 26, 2014 - comment 0 comments

u-he has released a release candidate for version 1.3 of its ACE modular synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

u-he ACE 1.3

It contains those more than 100 niggles and bugs fixed since last autumn, we’ve added 200 new HS Presets (like Diva, with an optional folder to purely browse those), it features the new Scope with options (we have not changed it for “pale” resize… simply because the resize code will change shortly anyway) and the new ModMapper drawing tools. It also features a new “filter reset” function in the circuit bending section.

Please give it a whirl and let us know if anything all too awkward happens

The release candidate is available for download from the u-he forum at KVR Audio.

XILS-lab releases XILS 4 modular synth plugin

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on May 19, 2014 - comment 0 comments

XILS-lab has announced the release of XILS 4, a virtual modular synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

XILS-lab XILS 4

The XILS 4 emulates a prototype that was never released, the EMS VCS4, based on two integrated, interlinked and interacting VCS 3 (Synthi) cores. We also coupled them with the famous 256 analog polysequencer.

Like the 2nd huge Pin Matrix, and its numerous additional modules: Envelopes, LFOs, S&H, Voltage Processor, Pitch Tracker, Transient etc. Or the recreation of the unique, powerfull 256 analog Polysequencer, intimately tied to the synthesis engines. Add to that the analog Chorus (3 modes) Delay and Phaser, the Spring Reverb, and the picture emerges.

XILS 4 is available for purchase for the introductory price of 149 EUR (regular 179 EUR). This offer includes a free USB-eLicenser, and XILISTICS soundset (160+ patches). XILS 3 users can upgrade for 29 EUR.
