Multi-layer convolution with five IR matrix.
Master section with Algorithmic Reverb, Delay, Modulation, Drive, Compressor and EQ effects.
250 IRs included.
400 presets categorized by instrument, genre and application, each created during real mix sessions.
Seamless processing: The reverb is never interrupted when adjusting parameters and changing IRs.
Factory IRs can have their durations shortened or lengthened.
User IR can be imported.
Full control over EQ, length, delay, and stereo field of any single IR.
Extremely low CPU usage.
REmatrix for Windows and Mac is available for the introductory price of 247 EUR/$327 USD (regular 299 EUR/$399 USD) until September 30th, 2014.
Overloud VKFX (Vintage Keyboard FX) is a virtual rack packed with outstanding models of vintage analog effect processors. All 8 VST / ProChannel Modules are available individually and also included in the VKFX bundle.
The FREE VKFX Delay module harkens back to the days of tape echo. The original tape echo effect was created by recording an input signal to tape via a tape head and then replaying that signal through another tape head. By placing several heads at different distances along the tape path, they were also able to create different syncopations of delay depending on which heads were monitored.
One feature of tape delays which was lost in the digital move forward was the effect on the sound of the tape itself. In tape delays, the signal is delayed by keeping it on the magnetic tape for a time. For every repetition of the delay, the signal is recorded to and played back from the tape. The more repetitions, the more intense is the effect of the tape on the sound.
The VKFX delay utilises an intelligent tape simulation algorithm which reproduces both the compression effects and frequency response of analogue tape for each repetition of the delayed signal.
All customers who have purchased and registered SONAR X3 Studio and Producer qualify for the free download.
