Synthblitz Audio releases Spazial M/S Decoder plugin

Synthblitz Audio has announced Spazial, a mid side decoder effect plug-in for Windows.

Synthblitz Audio Spazial
Spazial is designed to create wide stereo effects. It is able to encode and divide the incoming stereo signal into M/S signals and decode M/S signals into a stereo signal.

“Spazial” uses different ways to processing the incoming signal. There are 5 modes of using it : “internal”, “send mid”, “send side”, “spazial” and “decoder mode”.

“Spazial” allows the processing of the signals encoded by five potentiometers on the panel or sends the encoded pure signals directly to the output via the functions “enc mid” and “enc-side”. In the panel also has a very useful high-pass filter and a very special vibrato control.

Spazial is a free/donationware plug-in for Windows (VST).

DrMS takes you wherever you want to go in the stereo field.

DMG Audio releases PitchFunk multi fx plugin

DMG Audio has announced the release of PitchFunk, a modulation multi fx plug-in for Windows and Mac.

This all started as a toy project – I was ill, so doing some research. I’ve always been interested in the history of pitch shifters and was researching into what it was that made the classic units so special. I built a little toy which sounded great. And then, because it seemed necessary, we added feedback. And things got a little more weird. So we added a delay, and it got weirder still. And then a filter, and then variable topologies, a massive modulation section, the moveable gainstage, MS and LR independent processing, and a host of other little things that will entertain and amuse. Suddenly the toy had grown into something monstrous. It was making sounds we couldn’t describe any more. So we’re doing the obvious, and offering it to the world. What’s the worst that can happen?

DMG Audio PitchFunk
Don’t let the crafted UI fool you, PitchFunk makes the filthiest noises you’ve never heard.

PitchFunk features

  • Overview
    • Pitch Shifter feeds delay and filter with feedback to create unheard-of madness.
    • Lots of modulation, to keep everything moving while it’s feeding back.
    • Makes mad, mad noises, previously unheard of, potentially frightening to children, pets and the infirm.
    • A barrel full of insane presets.
    • Windows VST,VST3 as 32+64bit, 32bit RTAS.
    • Mac VST, VST3 and AU as 32+64bit, 32bit RTAS.
  • Sound
    • 10 pitch-shifting algorithms, based on classic hardware, optimised for modern CPUs, and extended for quality.
    • 3 delay-line algorithms, covering vintage and modern delay lines.
    • Configurable topology, for control over effect routing, to get exactly the right madness.
    • Movable modulated gain-stage for pan/gain effects, to get things pumping and moving.
    • Stereo, M&S independent and L&R independent modes.
  • Modulation
    • 3 bezier-drawable LFOs, with swing and tempo synch.
    • Sidechain-able enveloper follower, with extensive control.

G-Sonique releases Mid-Side Envelope Follower FX multi-filter+

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Feb 20, 2012 - comment 0 comments

G-Sonique has announced its Mid-Side Envelope Follower FX multi-filter+ VST effect plug-in for Windows.

Envelope follower is the technology of modulating a filter by the dynamics of a signal with set attack, release and envelope amounts – simply put, dynamics and amplitude of the music signal modulate the cutoff frequency of the filter and the result is a funky, liquid filtering effect that responds to the musical material. But Mid-Side Envelope follower FX multi-filter+ offers much more… the signal is split into MID (mono) and stereo (side) parts, each part can be boosted or attenuated to create larger or smaller panoramic 3D effects, filtered by 9 various filters and Ring Modulation Twist FX or Analog Distortion FX. Each of the two filters (of the Mid or Side parts) can be modulated by an envelope follower (attack, release, envelope amount) and the dynamics of the music signal as well as with a LFO (speed, depth and 4 waveforms). If you prefer a less altered signal, a Dry/Wet knob is available – you can use just 10% wet and 90% dry for more gentle effects, or use a 100% wet (Altered) signal for a short part of your song, for example in a breakdown, intro or outro. (using automation in your host application)

If you are creative enough, and prefer a new progressive sound in your music Mid-Side Envelope follower FX multi-filter+ will be your favorite tool of the trade.

G-Sonique Mid-Side Envelope Follower FX multi-filter+
G-Creative+ series: Mid-Side Envelope Follower FX multi-filter+

Mid-Side Envelope Follower FX multi-filter+ features

  • Mid (mono part of signal) and Side (stereo part) splitter, with the possibility to boost or attenuate each part. (side stereo signal can be boosted up to 5x).
  • 1x MID and 1x Side filter module with 9 different filters (G-Low pass, G-Band pass, G-High pass, Low pass, Band pass, High pass, Band reject, Peaking, Analog low pass, None).
  • 1x MID and 1x Side envelope follower (with attack, release, envelope amount control) that modulates the cutoff frequency of the filter.
  • 1x MID and 1x Side LFO (with speed and depth control and 4 waveforms: sine, saw-tooth, triangle, Square) that can additionally modulate cutoff frequency of the filter.
  • 1x Ring modulator Twist FX with knob for controlling amount of the effect from 0 to 100% on MID part.
  • 1x Analog Distortion effect with a warm sound on the SIDE part of the signal.
  • Dry/Wet knob of overall effect amount.
  • Preset manager with selected example presets.

The Mid-Side Envelope Follower FX multi-filter+ is available to purchase for the introductory price of 14 EUR (regular 18.90 EUR).
