Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Feb 12, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Rob Papen has released RP-Amod, a dual modulation effect that is available free of charge to all Rob Papen customers.

Rob Papen RP-Amod

As you will probably know, a modulator is a term that is used in synthesizers. They are various types of settings that can change and alter a sound. With RP-AMOD you can use it’s modulators to alter your audio in different ways.

We have added ‘Phaser’, ‘Flanger’, ‘Chorus’, ‘Ensemble’ and ‘Tremelo’, which are classic audio modulation FX. What differs with RP-AMOD from these classic versions, is that you can also ‘tempo sync’ them to your music, and you can use two FX at the same time in various routing configurations. These routing options are not only in serial and parallel, but you can also ‘filter split’ the audio signal ahead of going to both of the FX!

RP-AMOD can spice up your vocal track, liven an instrument and even beef up your drums or drum-loops.

RP-Amod features

  • Presets in various style banks. Preset / Bank menu with Quick Browser, Favorites & Recent etc functions.
  • Main section with: Bypass, Mix, Volume, Send, Readout display and ECS (External Midi Controller Setup)
  • Send button is ‘global’ and should be used in FX send mixer setup.
  • Routing controls how the 2 modulation units are connected: Parallel, Serial, Filter Split (Using either 6, 12 or 24 db low pass / high pass filters. The filters frequency is set by the split frequency dial).
  • Audio Modulation 1 & 2 with Sync, Volume Mix control.
  • Audio Pan and Pan Modulation inside each Audio Modulation module.
  • FX Types: Chorus, Tape Chorus, Ensemble, Flanger, Tape Flanger, Phaser, Analogue Phaser, Tremelo.

RP-Amod is a free download for registered Rob Papen users.

Cableguys updates public beta of FilterShaper 3 (incl. GUI improvements)

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 15, 2014 - comment 1 comment

Cableguys has updated the public beta version of its upcoming FilterShaper 3 effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Cableguys FilterShaper 3 (beta)
The latest beta version of Cableguys FilterShaper 3.

New beta is up! Almost all UI fine-tunings have been done, changed the color from red to orange for better readability, we introduced preset categories in the preset browser, and both filter cutoffs can be linked.

Plus the stuff which we added with the previous beta: Linking of LFOs between parameters, a nice fade effect when switching between modulations to illustrate the changing of LFOs.

FilterShaper 3 can currently crash in some rare cases when using the selection tool in the waveform area (click and drag to select multiple points and move them, resize them..). Steffen is working on fixing that right now.

FilterShaper 3 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) will cost 69 EUR / $89 USD. During the beta period, it is available to pre-order by purchasing FilterShaper 2 at 49 EUR / $69 USD (which includes a free update to version 3).

Inear Display Rmpx4

Inear Display has launched Rmpx4, a multi effect processor focused on modulations.

  • 2 pitchshifters with buffer size and feedback settings.
  • 2 delay lines with tempo sync and time interpolation.
  • Crossfade control to morph between instances of each effect.

  • 4 LFOs with optional tempo sync.
  • 2 envelope followers.
  • 2 modulation signals inverters.
  • 2 modulation signals mixers.
  • 2 modulation signals multipliers.
  • Processed signal gain control.
