Fairly Confusing Waveforms has released Cracklebot, a free vinyl noise machine for Native Instruments Kontakt.
Cracklebot is automated drum machine based on vinyl noise samples. I sampled worn and dirty, empty grooves from my vinyl collection. Lead-ins, lead-outs, silent parts in between tracks, those have been chopped to 115 short slices or pops, crackles, scratches and noises.
Cracklebot is sequencing them into tempo synchronized, noise grooves. The machine can create new, random patterns on a single click, so it’s quite fun play with.
Sonic Studio has announced the release of AudioRepair Toolkit (ART), a Mac OS X-based high-resolution audio application that repairs all manners of damaged sound files by removing interfering events while preserving the sound quality of the original material.

Export multiple songs in a variety of file formats, sample rates and bit depths.
Full Broadcast WAV metadata support including ISRC.
Time+Space has announced that the RX 4 and RX 4 Advanced audio repair suites from iZotope are available at up to 35% off for a limited time.
This January, RX 4, RX 4 Advanced and upgrade options are available to buy for up to 35% less than their normal RRP
Critically acclaimed and multi award winning RX 4 is the industry standard in audio repair and is the result of iZotope’s collaboration with working professionals to identify new ways of improving workflows. They’ve translated these insights into technologies that address common needs and reflect the way people naturally want to work. RX 4 enhancements take you beyond mere audio repair—letting you truly enhance and transform your audio.
Audio Damage has launched Mad Hatter, a new Eurorack format digital noise module.
What do you get when you take a shift register noise generator and the six-square-wave oscillator stack from the TR606 cymbal source and put ‘em in one unit? Mad Hatter!
As a digital noise source, Mad Hatter is, well, as versatile as a digital noise source can really be. The COLOR control and CV input is the clock speed of the shift register, from chaotic oscillations to white noise.
This noise is then paired with the oscillator stack, six square waves at frequencies measured from our own TR-606. (For added versatility, the COLOR knob also controls the pitch of two of those oscillators, sweeping them over a 1-octave range.) The oscillators run through a pair of bandpass filters, in the same manner as the TR-606’s cymbal sound.
This whole mess goes to a high-pass filter, with a frequency controlled with the HPF FILTER FREQ knob and CV input. After that, it’s out the out-hole to your favorite VCA, for easy-to-patch hi-hat and cymbal sounds.
Mad Hatter features
Digital shift register noise plus 6 square wave oscillators for easy x0x-style cymbal synthesis.
COLOR knob controls shift register noise clock and oscillator stack pitch.
Noise Makers has announced the release of PANO (Procedural Ambient Noise Orchestra), a real-time multichannel synthesizer dedicated to dynamic ambient noises.
Current factory presets include liquid, fire and wind sounds. More will come in the future and be posted to the Noise Makers website. PANO is made of two parts : PanoPlayer (VST, AU, AAX) and PanoComposer (Standalone).
PanoPlayer is the plugin version of PANO (VST, AU, AAX). Plug it in your favorite DAW as a virtual instrument and instantly add dynamics, naturalness and infinite variations to your soundscapes.
PanoComposer is the standalone version of PANO that gives access to all PANO parameters (granular synthesis, subtractive synthesis, loops) and allows to create presets for PanoPlayer.
Dynamic morphing PAD.
Spatialization and width control (binaural and multichannel support).
Reading presets made with PanoComposer.
Two granular synthesisers (with predefined drops, bubbles and cracs grains).
32-subband additive noise synthesis.
Four filters (subtractive noise synthesis).
Four simple loopers.
Dynamic morphing PAD editor.
PANO is available for purchase for the introductory price of 29 EUR until December 31st, 2014 (regular 49 EUR).
