Mark Mosher of Modulate This has announced the Project: INIT video series.

Project: INIT is a new video series I’m kicking off today. In the videos I will offer real-time behind-the-patch footage taking you on sound design missions from INIT using a variety of sonic weapons. By simply coming along for the ride you’ll learn more about synthesis and how to make unique sounds for your productions.

Modulate This! Holiday Gift: “Outpost: Airlock” free soundset for Zebralette & Zebra 2

Modulate This! Outpost: Airlock

Mark Mosher at Modulate This! has announced the release of Outpost: Airlock, a free collection of sounds for Zebralette and Zebra 2 by u-he.

OUTPOST: AIRLOCK is a soundset made up of patches for U-HE’s free freeware synthesizer Zebralette. The patches will also load into Zebra 2.

This themed soundset picks up where “Sounds from a Distant Outpost” soundset left off (which has been downloaded over 2500 times to date) and again takes place at the fictional dark and distant “outpost”. This outpost exists in the same “signals universe” as my two albums REBOOT and I HEAR YOUR SIGNALS.

The 12 patches in this soundset will help you experience the journey through the airlock which connects the outer ring of the outpost to the first inner chamber. You might hear creatures along the way so stay alert.

Outpost: Airlock is now available to download from Modulate This! at no cost.

Mark Mosher launches Modulate This! Patch Lab, free patches from Init

Modulate This! Patch Lab

Mark Mosher has announced the launch of the Modulate This! Patch Lab micro site, offering free patches created from scratch.

I’ve had a passion for programming synths and working with samplers for over 20 years. I’m constantly experimenting and creating new patches with a large variety of electronic music instruments. I’m also creating original harmonic content via field recordings and re-synthesis.

While many of these patches are used in my original music and sound compositions, I have a lot of patches that have yet to be used. This led me to thinking of ways I might share my past and future patches and samples so you could use them in your work. I also hope that these listening to these sounds, reading my notes, and spending time to reverse engineer these patches will help inspire you to go deeper with synthesis and sound design so you can add unique sounds and timbres to your music and sound compositions.

The Patch Lab patches will be available under a non-exclusive royalty-free license.

Short links for June 16th, 2010

Vuvuzela by Dundas Football Club @ Flickr

Some interesting things I found recently:

The sound of the vuvuzela seems to irritate quite a number of people, so here’s a round-up of some solutions on how to watch the World Cup games without this loud horn.

# Filter The Vuvuzela Horn Out of the World Cup; Learn JACK Routing on Linux

Are you a World Cup fan annoyed by the constant sound of the South African vuvuzela horn? Wish you could remove that sound from your World Cup viewing experience? Do you want to learn a little bit about powerful modular effects routing can be on Linux? Either? Both? Call it “football”? “Soccer”? Any way round, we’ve got you covered.

# Waves Vuvuzela Noise Reduction Solution

Waves has a processing chain available to download.

In response to the widely publicized complaints from TV viewers and broadcasters of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Waves is proud to unveil a solution which dramatically reduces the problematic sound of the omnipresent Vuvuzela trumpet favored by South African soccer fans.

Working in conjunction with a major television broadcaster, we've precision-crafted a preset processing chain which drastically decreases Vuvuzela noise: The WNS Waves Noise Suppressor and the Q10 Paragraphic Equalizer. Together, they not only minimize Vuvuzela noise, they increase the intelligibility of the game announcers' play-by-play action and color commentary.

Waves Vuvuzela processing chain

The processing chain for Vuvuzela noise reduction is now available as load-and-use sessions for Pro Tools, Waves MultiRack, and Cubase.

# Prosoniq VuvuX

And Prosoniq has a free filtering plug-in for Mac users.

Prosoniq is proud to announce the world's first realtime Vuvuzela filtering plug in based on sonicWORX' audio de-mixing technology.

# Z3TA+

Cakewalk's award-winning Waveshaping Synthesizer is now just $19.99 USD as a download.

Usine Ableton OSC touch Controller

# Sensomusic Usine

Sensomusic has released tons of freebies for its Usine users.

Good news for all Usine free Users: Get more than 200 Add-ons and ready-made patches for free. Just register on the forum (it's totally free).

Peter Kirn at Create Digital Music also report on this one in Hundreds of Free Musical Tools Now Free to Add to Usine.

Usine is an overlooked gem in music making, a PC-based modular environment and live performance tool that runs as a host or VST plug-in. Pick the modules you need from a set of powerful building blocks, and build a custom musical rig, complete with multi-touch control on new Windows devices. It sounds like something you might request from a magical genie, but the thing is real, priced at EUR120 (or just EUR60 for educational users).

As with any modular environment, having ample access to powerful modules and some patches to get you started is everything. But that makes this week’s news worth noting: co-developer Olivier Sens has made some 200+ add-ons and patches free. All you have to do to grab them is register on the forum. The demo version of Usine is surprisingly capable, too, so if you’ve been waiting to test-drive and you have a Windows machine (or a dual-boot Mac), now could be a good time.

# Black Allegheny, Swarm Generated Music

Evan Merz writes:

Black Allegheny is one of the first albums made up entirely of swarm generated music. The album was created using a swarm-controlled sampler called Becoming, which was programmed by the composer.

Obey™ 3 Compact DMX Controller

# Review of the Chauvet Slimpar56 LED Light and Obey3 Light Controller

Mark @ Modulate This! on the Chauvet Slimpar56 & Obey3:

In a recent post I documented my new live rig with a drawing and a time-lapse video sans lights and light controller. I’m happy to report I just received and have been testing the brand new LED SlimPAR™ 56 and Obey™ 3 compact DMX controller so I thought I’d share some notes.
