Computer Music has announced that its latest magazine includes a free copy of SKnote Snap, a transient exciter plug-in for Windows and Mac.
Brighten or dull the attack and sustain of your sounds with Snap, a unique transient exciter plugin created exclusively for CM by software perfectionists SKnote. Their other analogue-flavoured creations include the console-emulating Stripbus, tape saturator Roundtone, and the mighty MCAudioLab EQ1passive equaliser.
Snap detects your incoming transients (or attack) and allows you to apply two intelligently-linked filters to your signal. You can add brightness to a snare or hi-hat’s crack, tame a drum group’s spikiness, or soften a piano’s sustain without blunting its attack.
SKnote Snap features
‘Hit’ and ‘Body’ knobs to treat attack and/or sustain for precise dynamic sculpting.
Brighten or dull transients independently of the signal’s sustain.
Great for shaping drums, percussion, guitars, groups or mixes.
Transient metering and value readouts.
Clear, compact interface.
32-/64-bit PC VST.
32-/64-bit Mac AU/VST.
The plugin is included with Computer Music 197 (and onwards).
MusicRadar has announced that a free copy of the Toontrack EZdrummer Lite software is available from Time+Space, in celebration of the Drum Expo 2013 online drum show.
Those kind folk over at UK distributor Time+Space have stepped forward with a free download of Toontrack’s EZdrummer® Lite plug-in worth £19.95.
EZdrummer® Lite is a stripped down version of the multi-microphone drum-sampler that offers a taste of EZdrummer’s multi-miked virtual drum kit. It comes with a selection of MIDI programmed drum beats for you to play your songs over and it’s the perfect way to quickly add drum parts to your compositions – you can even program your own!

Computer Magazine’s 185th issue includes RG-Muted CM, a virtual guitar instrument by Rob Papen.
Computer Music Edition of Rob Papen’s RG Rhythm Guitar plug-in for PC and Mac.
Make superb rhythm guitar parts with this incredible plugin from the virtual instrument king, Rob Papen! For PC and Mac.
It’s a fully working version (ie, it’s not time-restricted or “crippled”), but with fewer sound sets than the full thing. RG-Muted CM contains only the High Muted and Low Muted sound sets, which are for funky muted rhythm guitar patterns.
Computer Music 185 is available to purchase for £2.49 GBP from Zinio.
