Hzandbits Excited Electrons

Hzandbits has announced the release of Excited Electrons, a collection of 121 electronic noise and interference sound effects in 24bit/96kHz mono.

Here are the chaotic, squealing, squelching insides of everyday electronic apparatus, such as cell phones, laptops, MiniDisc players and battery drills. Sounds that drone, sounds that buzz – sounds that go “YipYipYiiiipfffrrrszz…”.

Recorded with induction coils/telephone pickups, these sounds are excellent sound design material.

With these sounds come extensive metadata in CSV and ODS (OpenOffice) formats.

Excited Electrons is available for purchase for $31 USD. Hzandbits newsletter subscribers get a 50% discount on all Hzandbits packs.

Wire Grind releases Noise Gate Plus plugin

Wire Grind Noise Gate Plus

Wire Grind has launched Noise Gate Plus, a noise gate effect plug-in for Windows.

Noise Gate Plus has several special controls that use time, logic, and probability to control the gate. It also uses a special anti-click gating algorithm. Noise gates typically produce a clicking noise when using either a short attack time or a short release time. Wire Grind’s algorithm is able to virtually eliminate this type of noise.

The special controls are Attack Delay, Early Release, Hold Closed, and Beat Skip. The last of these is a feature that probabilistically mutes audio events and it borderlines on automatic computer improvisation. Noise Gate Plus bears similarity to Wire Grind’s Advanced Noise Gate. The most obvious difference is the redesigned user interface. Noise Gate Plus also adds a hysteresis control, and its envelopes differ slightly. Notably, Noise Gate Plus lacks the various equalization controls found on Advanced Noise Gate. This has resulted in a more simple interface which might appeal to some users.

Noise Gate Plus features

  • Anti-click gating algorithm.
  • Attack delay.
  • Early gate release.
  • Hold closed.
  • Probabilistic gating.
  • Range control.
  • Hysteresis.
  • Two attack envelopes.
  • Independent and linked channel processing.
  • Side chaining.
  • Ducking.

The plug-in is available for Windows (VST) for $59 USD.

Bela D Media

Bela D Media has announced that its website has undergone a complete redesign with a new modern look, offering greater product detail and updates.

In addition, Bela D Media is now running a special promotion for hitting the “like” button on their new Facebook page – you can save 10% on your next purchase by doing so.

Bela D Media is also offering a free copy of Scoring Noise library for Native Instruments Kontakt when signing up the Bela D Newsletter.

Bela D Media Scoring Noise

Scoring Noise was originally created in 2008. Since that time, when available, it has seen thousands of downloads. Composers and sound designers alike have made use of the samples within by layering them into their music for additional realism. Bela D thought such a project should undergo an update and be re-released.

Scoring Noise is now fully scripted and includes newer noise floors and various other noises heard during recording sessions of choirs and orchestras.

iZotope releases RX 4 Audio Repair Toolkit

iZotope has announced the release of RX 4, the next generation of its industry-standard audio repair toolkit for Windows and Mac.

iZotope RX 4

iZotope’s award-winning software transforms flawed audio into pristine, usable material by removing noises, distortions, reverb, and other common audio problems. RX 4 and RX 4 Advanced incorporate significant new workflow-optimizing functionality, leaving more time for creativity in audio and video editing. For anyone in audio post production, broadcast, dialogue editing and mixing, independent filmmaking, or music production, RX 4 can make poorly recorded audio intelligible and ready for primetime.

RX 4 Advanced 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. New features in RX 4 move beyond audio repair—letting professionals enhance their audio.

“Audio quality is a significant concern for media workflows worldwide, spanning professionals in film and TV post production to music mixing and mastering,” says Rob D’Amico, Senior Product Manager for iZotope. “iZotope has developed an audio solution that is equally valuable in the music recording studio, post production suite, on the film set, or in your home editing setup.”

RX 4 enables users to significantly speed up their workflow through the addition of new intelligent modules, time-saving features, and deeper levels of integration with their host.

Changes in RX 4 features

  • Clip Gain: Easily adjust and balance the volume of vocals and instruments with this new non-destructive editing feature.
  • Dialogue Denoiser: Reduce distracting background noise from dialogue and vocals in real time (now a standard feature with both RX 4 and RX 4 Advanced).
  • RX Connect: Streamline the editing process with a round-trip workflow compatible with industry-standard hosts.

For audio professionals in post production, music production, and mastering, RX 4 Advanced boasts additional time-saving features.

  • Leveler: Automatically balance the volume of a mix, freeing more time for creative mix decisions.
  • Ambience Match: Match the environment noise or room tone of two different audio recordings with ease.
  • EQ Match: Ensure a consistent-sounding mix by matching multiple recordings with varying sonic profiles.
  • Loudness: Process whole program mixes or segments to comply with international industry standards and network-specific guidelines.

RX 4 and RX 4 Advanced are available for purchase for the introductory price of $299 USD and $999 USD respectively, through September 25th, 2014 (regular $349 USD/$1199 USD). Users of previous RX versions can log in to their iZotope accounts for upgrade information and special upgrade pricing.
Customers who purchase RX 3 or RX 3 Advanced after July 1, 2014 will receive a free upgrade.
