Endeavour Evo Series One ethernet keyboard controllers

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 02, 2012 - comment 0 comments

Endeavour has launched its renewed website for the Evo, a touch and pressure sensitive keyboard controller.

Endeavour Evo Series One

The evo is a pure keyboard controller that is connected to a computer via an Ethernet interface, and that communicates via Midi, OSC or our own in-house protocol with synthesizers, sequencers or similar.

The keys are the special feature here. Every single key is equipped with a sensor that allows evo to read the finger position on a certain area of the key surface. Thus, every key offers, in addition to pitch and velocity, an additional level of polyphonic data input that can be used for continuous control of independent notes.

Evo Series One features

  • 24 or 48 touch and pressure sensitive, unweighted keys.
  • Black pulver-coated aluminum housing (24) / high quality anodized aluminum housing (48).
  • 100 MBit/s Ethernet-Interface.
  • External Power Supply.
  • 400x350x100mm, 1020g (24) / 700x350x100mm, 2020g (48).

The Evo is available to purchase for 499 EUR (24 keys) / 999 EUR (48 keys).

sonicLAB updates Cosmosƒ to v1.2 (+ Windows PC version)

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Mar 23, 2012 - comment 0 comments

sonicLAB has updated the Cosmosƒ advanced stochastic synthesis instrument to version 1.2, which includes the first Windows release alongside the updated Mac version.


New feature in Cosmosƒ V1.2: Additive Synthesis with Sample Waveform

Cosmosƒ V1.2 offers new features for its Synthesis Engine: For instance a genuine Additive Synthesis feature has been developed, where you can control, automate and modulate up to 12 partials with their frequency and amplitude distribution. You can assign either a sine wave or a sample waveform to the partials. All partials sum up to one micro event waveform! Unheard clusters of sound objects can be created in real time within seconds.

A 300% performance gain has been achieved thanks to the immense efforts in coding for precision and optimization.

Now available on Windows7: in response to the significant demand for the Windows version, from now on Cosmosƒ is available on Windows 7 (for earlier OS versions please test the demo app).

Cosmosƒ is now available to purchase for Windows an Mac for 89 EUR. The update is free for registered users.

Circular Labs releases Mobius 2.0

Jeff Larson Mobius

Circular Labs has updated the Mobius programmable looper software for Windows and Mac to version 2.0.

The focus of this release was a redesign of the synchronization engine, support for sample rates other than 44,100 and support for Audio Unit host sync.

Many, many architectural changes were made but few of these will be visible to most users. If you have been using Mobius, this will be one of the more complicated upgrades. Parameters related to synchronization will not be upgraded automatically, you will need to redesign your sync settings as track setups rather than presets. This is discussed in the release notes.

Changes in Mobius v2.0

  • Redesigned synchronization engine for improved sync.
  • Support for Audio Units host sync (Logic, Garageband).
  • Support for other sample rates besides 44100.
  • Redesigned UI button window that works like other binding windows.
  • Improved OSC support.

Mobius for Windows and Mac (Standalone/VST/AU) is available to download as freeware.

sonicLAB Cosmosƒ gets full OSC support in v1.1

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

sonicLAB has updated its Cosmosƒ advanced stochastic synthesizer to version 1.1, featuring new addons dedicated to live performance and automation.

sonicLAB Cosmosƒ

Cosmosƒ is a real-time dynamic stochastic synthesis engine, which does generate sonic textures with a complex event distribution process. Discrete sonic events of certain density are distributed in a time space with their onset time and duration parameter calculated with stochastic/deterministic functions. Each macro event defines the duration of a meso space, and the sub events are distributed inside it.

Changes in Cosmosƒ v1.1

  • Full OSC support: You can control and automate any parameter of Cosmosƒ from another software/hardware (registered version only).
  • Manual Mute/Unmute switches for meso&micro events: Like on a mixing console, you can individually mute/unmute events inside the Cosmosƒ cycle: very efficient for developing controlled rhythmic structures.
  • Preset Morphing: You can morph the parameter space between 4 presets, therefore instantly interpolate over 250 parameters with a simple gesture.
  • Plus many improvements in the code including quadratic interpolation on all the audio playback routines.

Cosmosƒ for Mac is available to purchase for 89 EUR.
