Glitchmachines launches Convex multi-fx plugin

Glitchmachines has announced the release of Convex, a multi-effects processor designed to facilitate the creation of contorted artifacts, syncopated patterns and skewed digital textures.

Glitchmachines Convex

Based around three classic effects; multimode filter, pitch shifter and delay, Convex generates dynamic variations of the input signal by morphing between two instances of each effect and modulating their key parameters using an extensive array of control modules.

Driving its core are 4 LFOs with optional tempo sync and 2 envelope followers which can have their output inverted or combined using mixers and multipliers. Convex features 100 factory presets from Ivo Ivanov, Thomas Hennebert, Nicholas Yochum, Daed and Subjex. From mellow dub delays to mind-blowing glitch sequences, Convex will bring a broad range of exciting effects to your audio arsenal.

Convex features

  • Dual Multimode Filters.
  • Dual Pitch Shifters.
  • Dual Digital Delays.
  • Dual Envelope Followers.
  • Two Signal Mixers, Multipliers and Inverters.
  • 4 LFOs with Retrig, Sync and variable shapes.
  • 100 Factory Presets from our top sound designers.
  • Cross-platform compatibility (PC/Mac – VST/AU 32bit & 64bit).

Convex is available for purchase for $29 USD. A free crossgrade to Convex is available for Inear Display Rmpx4 customers.

Sound Magic releases Serenade Headquarter multi fx

Sound Magic has announced Serenade Headquarter, a multi effects unit for the Serenade Pro audio interface.

Sound Magic Serenade Headquarter

Based on the hardware, it combines Virtual Preamp, Headphone Mix and other technology to enhance the audio interface, turn it into an effect unit, and thus achieve a better sound for your music and recordings. With Serenade Headquarter, you can simulate speaker on your headphones, color your music and recording and adjust volume without loss in dynamic range. And because it is calibrated the sound with the hardware, it can achieve more precise final result than common software effects.

Virtual Preamp is a brand new technology developed by Sound Magic to improve the timbre and sound quality when dealing with different volume levels. Usually when you turn down the volume in software, the noise floor of the hardware does not change. This results in the loss of dynamic range. When you turn up the volume, the background noise is also increased and the dynamic range does not improve. Virtual Preamp enables users to avoid the loss of dynamic range when turning down the volume and improves the dynamic range when turning up the volume. During the amplifying process, high end analog gear has the special ability to add their unique color to the final sound. This is a killer point that has fascinated most musicians and audiophiles for years. Virtual Preamp technology has not only managed to reproduce this ethereal quality of vintage analog gear, but also provides a selection of different colors for the sound – and lets you choose the tonal color that best suits your music. Simply choose the virtual vintage gear you’d like to use and find the color that best fits your personal taste.

Headphone Mix technology is suitable for those who make their music on a headphone monitoring system. It combines an environment simulation system, a frequency compensating system and HRTF technologies to emulate the “feeling” of speakers on your headphones. With it, you can achieve incredible results when mixing and mastering. Although the sound you hear in your headphones may be more detailed than what comes from a comparably priced speaker system, the imaging of the sound field is still a weak point for headphones. Our Headphone Mix Technology is the solution. By combining our environment simulation system, our frequency compensating system and HRTF technologies, Serenade can reproduces that speaker “feeling” in your headphones. This greatly improves the utility of any headphone system.

  • Touch-based automation sequencer for your effects that adds a completely new fluid dimension to your sound design.
  • Every parameter of every effect is editable, assignable and with the fine tuner dial, precise. That makes FLUX:FX a tweaker’s paradise.
  • Beautiful, minimalist interface combining easy-to-use controls with a mesmerising liquid polygon audio visualizer. No fake road-worn pedal graphics here.

Plugin Boutique 12 Days of Christmas – 40% off Singularity & Molecule

Plugin Boutique has launched a limited time sale on Singularity and Molecule, offering a 40% discount on the AudioUnit plug-ins by Sinevibes.

40% off Sinevibes Singularity & Molecule

Singularity is a delay effect unlike any other. It starts with a tempo-synchronised feedback delay line capable of true stereo panning, and its tail is then sent into three extremely capable effect units connected in series. Each of these processors includes a rich selection of different algorithms: from filters, phasers and choruses to digital- and analog-style distortion, frequency shifter and granulator. In addition to all this, Singularity has four modulation generators for parameter animation – all of which lets you create extremely sophisticated, out-of-this-world delay and echo effects.

Molecule is a multi-band processor that allows you to split the sound into three frequency bands – low, mid, high – and pass them independently through different effects. It includes a vast array of algorithms such as comb filter, chorus ensemble, frequency shifter as well as barber-pole phaser, circuit-bent filter, digital- and analog-style distortion. Each of the three bands also gets its own tempo-synchronised modulator with multiple waveforms and realtime randomisation. Moreover, Molecule lets you store up to eight complete snapshots of itself and switch between them in realtime or via host automation.

The plugins are available at a 40% discount until January 1st, 2015.
