Peavy Revalver 4

Peavey Electronics has announced ReValver 4, a major new version of the amplifier modeling software.

Redesigned from the ground up, this latest version of the ReValver software contains new amp modeling capabilities that capture true characteristics of real tube amplifiers.

ReValver is renowned for its industry-leading amp modeling accuracy, which is achieved by modeling an amplifier down to the component level. Now Peavey has updated and improved the modeling engine in ReValver 4, taking amp modeling to a whole new level of realistic tone- shaping possibilities. The new ReValver 4 also incorporates a GUI and UX redesign and the ability to run on a Windows tablet, plus other high-level features including GIG mode, ACT (Audio Cloning Technology) and RIR 2 cabinet modeling.

Based on feedback from the extensive ReValver user community, the application’s redesign has been done so to improve user experience and workflow. The GUI now separates pedal board, amps/cabs and effects into their own views, thus minimizing the amount of vertical scrolling needed to navigate the application.

GIG mode further expands ReValver’s power as a live performance solution by allowing the user to load 8 presets into memory and seamlessly switch between them. The presets can also be assigned to MIDI controller switches. In addition, another primary consideration of the GUI and UX redesign was to make ReValver 4 the ideal solution for amp modeling on Windows tablets. As a result, the combination of ReValver 4, an audio interface, and a Windows tablet makes the perfect live performance rig.

Peavey’s ReValver 4 also features ACT (Audio Cloning Technology) modules that allow the user to mold and shape the guitar sound at both the input (before amp modeling) and output (after modeling). At the input, ACT turns ReValver into an instrument modeler by altering the incoming guitar signal to mimic the sound and characteristics of other instruments, such as acoustics, folk instruments, and even other electric guitar and pickup combinations. At the output, ACT allows the user to load presets that sculpt the signal to fit in a recording mix or mimic the sonic characteristics of famous guitar rigs.

With improved Impulse Responses, ReValver 4′s RIR 2 feature takes cabinet modeling to a whole new level of accuracy and realism by giving the user independent control of speaker configuration, microphone, and mic placement, allowing for almost endless tone shaping options. Plus, the new Pedal Board feature provides a familiar environment to build and edit an effects chain.

With ReValver 4 also comes the introduction of the ReValver Amp Store, allowing users to purchase new amps, stompboxes, effects, and ACT content through in-app purchases. Users can begin with the free version of ReValver 4, and then simply purchase the additional content they desire.

ReValver 4 supports the powerful new AAX plug-in format for Pro Tools, and can now host both VST and AU plug-ins even in a Pro Tools environment. As always, the software can also be used as a stand-alone virtual amplifier.

Peavey Predator

Noisecrux has announced a free multi-sampled electric guitar pack, featuring the sound of a Peavey Predator.

Here is a free multisampled clean electric guitar for you all to use in your productions. I recorded a Peavey Predator electric guitar (using the bridge humbucking pickup position) direct into my audio interface. There are 23 notes sampled, from E2 to C6 at two velocity layers, as well as muted strings and string slide noises so you can add some additional realism to the programmed guitar parts.

Included in the sample pack are programs for SFZ, Shortcircuit (VST sampler) and Beatmaker2 (iOS) formats. There are two Beatmaker2 presets – the full instrument and a lighter (only one velocity layer ~12Mb) version to conserve RAM.

The sample pack is available as a free download.

Impact Soundworks launches Shreddage website + open-source SFZ format available

Impact Soundworks Shreddage

Impact Soundworks has launched its new Shreddage website, providing product information, video tutorials, audio demos, and user content for the Shreddage family of electric guitar and bass sample libraries.

The website was launched alongside new open-source, cross-platform versions of “Shreddage: Electric Rhythm Guitar” and “Shreddage Bass: Picked Edition” in the SFZ format.

Impact Soundworks, a joint venture between composers Andrew Aversa and Wilbert Roget, II, was founded in 2007 with the goal of creating innovative, affordable and unique sample libraries that are “designed with composers in mind.”

“We’ve received so much great feedback from users of Shreddage, from composers, producers, and even rock guitarists; however, requiring the Kontakt software made it inaccessible for many who would have loved to use it,” said Aversa, designer of the libraries. “We’re thrilled to finally be offering our Shreddage instruments to all musicians, on any computer or operating system, with no barrier of entry.”

“Shreddage” and its expansion “Shreddage X” were originally released for Native Instruments Kontakt and contain over 2,000 recordings of a 6-string electric guitar recorded direct-in. The libraries contain all crucial articulations for rhythm playing, including powerchords, single notes, multiple palm mute variations, up to 8x round robins, legato slides, tremolo picking, vibrato, pinch squeals and more. “Shreddage Bass” takes a similar approach to the picked electric bass.

The open-source SFZ format can be loaded into most any sampling software, such as LinuxSampler (www.LinuxSampler.org), which itself is open-source, 32/64 bit and compatible with Windows, Mac and Linux. Sample editor Baard Wolvik faithfully converted the Shreddage libraries to SFZ, maintaining virtually all features and functionality.

A copy of Peavey’s ReValver HPse virtual amp software is included with each copy of Shreddage, featuring custom presets and a discounted upgrade path to their flagship ReValver HP and ReValver MKIII.V products.

The sample libraries are available in the SFZ format at a discounted price of $49 USD. Existing users of the Kontakt version can crossgrade for free.

Muse Research launches Muse OS2.0 for Receptor 2+ Pro and Pro Max & Receptor VIP announced

Related: , , , , , , Posted in news on Jan 24, 2012 - comment 0 comments

Muse Research has announced that it has enhanced the Receptor 2+ Pro and Pro Max models with the release of Muse OS2.0 software.

Muse Research Receptor 2

This entirely new software version features an incredibly simple user interface that introduces the SoundFinder™ technology for organizing and navigating presets in the RECEPTOR. SoundFinder was first developed for their MuseBox product which was jointly developed with Peavey Electronics, but unlike MuseBox, the MUSE OS2.0 supports up to 16-channels of synthesizers and audio effects thanks to the superb processing power of the dual-core processors found in the RECEPTOR 2+ PRO and PRO MAX models.

Additionally, the software features enhanced MIDI functionality including full “MIDI learn” capability, as well as other advanced programming and preset functionality to make these models of RECEPTOR better than ever! And since there are so many major touring bands and artists use RECEPTOR and are familiar with the mixer style interface, MUSE OS2.0 features a “Classic” mode lets you continue to use the legacy interface with its classic look and feel.

Muse Research also introduced the RECEPTOR VIP (Virtual Instrument Player).

RECEPTOR VIP makes use of an entirely new user-interface inspired by the MuseBox, and includes an incredibly simple front panel hardware interface to find and manipulate your virtual instrument and effects presets quickly. Sporting a new 2U rack-mount design, this product is ideal for customers who need more power and channels than a MuseBox, and the RECEPTOR VIP provides a lower-cost alternative to the top-of-the-line RECEPTOR 2+ PRO and PRO MAX models.

The Receptor VIP model will replace the existing base model Receptor 2+, and will ship in March with a MAP price of $1599 USD.

Impact Soundworks partners with Peavey, ReValver HPse now included with Shreddage

Impact Soundworks has announced a partnership with Peavey Electronics to bundle a custom version of Peavey’s award-winning ReValver amp sim plugin with the critically-acclaimed Shreddage sample library.

Impact Soundworks Shreddage

Ever since we first designed and released Shreddage, the goal was to make it as easy as possible for people to amp the DI samples and get a great, thick rock/metal tone right out of the box. But while we previously included presets for popular amp sims, it was still a little tricky to get a killer sound without some tweaking. Now, we’ve made the process as easy as possible with ReValver HPse, which includes two popular Peavey amps and poweramps plus an assortment of stompboxes, effects and other tools.

The plugin, which is available as a free update to all Shreddage users and will come with all new purchases of the library, also includes presets designed JUST for our library. To see how simple it is to get an amazing double-tracked tone with Shreddage X and ReValver HPse, just check out this YouTube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03fbxV8X-As

ReValver HPse is available as a free download for registered users Shreddage. Upgrades from ReValver HPse are available to Shreddage users for ReValver HP ($30 USD), and ReValver MKIII.V ($199 USD).

Peavey releases ReValver MK III.V, guitar amplifier modeling software

Peavey has announced the availability of ReValver MK III.V, a guitar amplifier modeling software for Windows and Mac.

Peavey ReValver MK III.V

Developed by veteran tube-amp maker Peavey Electronics, ReValver captures the true characteristics of vacuum tubes while allowing users control over their tonality, configuration, tube types, and gain structures.

ReValver MK III.VReValver MK III.V features the debut of 21 new amp models, including the Peavey 3120, Peavey Masterpiece, Peavey Sensation, Budda Superdrive II, and Budda Superdrive V Series. New effects models in ReValver MK III.V are the classic Peavey VCL-2 tube compressor, the Budda Budwah expression pedal, and the Gate Keeper, a tube-based noise gate. All of the amp models, effects models and deep editing popularized by ReValver MK III are also available in MK III.V.

ReValver utilizes exclusive Peavey algorithms that analyze the interactions of the amps’ components at the circuit level, based on the original schematics. ReValver is able to model every nuance of tube amplifiers with “unprecedented accuracy”.

As advanced as ReValver’s modeling algorithms are, operating the models can be as simple or as in-depth as the user desires. The software GUI is intuitive and easy to use, with a drag-and-drop interface where users can add and subtract individual components and devices such as amplifiers, preamps, power amps, stomp boxes and effects.

Unlocking ReValver’s customization tools is also easy. By right-clicking on an amp model, users can “go inside” and adjust the amp’s tones and components on the Tweak Module GUI. This allows users to modify every imaginable tube parameter on all amplifier models. Users can also modify tube types, power amps, rectifiers, output transformers and tone stacks.

ReValver MK III.V features a robust stompbox and effects section, including various types of chorus, distortion, wah, tremolo, compression, limiters, delays, octaver and much more. Its convolution reverb allows for very complex and smooth reverbs, including sampled spring reverb, and allows users to import their own impulse responses. The VST Host module allows users to load their favorite third-party VSTs for use within the ReValver software.

ReValver MK III.V also features many “under-the-hood” updates. The tube model algorithms have been enhanced, resulting in a new level of realism. The convolution modules have also been updated to improve the handling of imported IRs and new “Brilliance” and “Bottom” parameters have been added to the modules, allowing for further fine-tuning of the impulses’ tonal characteristics. The VST Host module also features enhancements to ensure robustness and ease of use. MK III.V now boasts improved runtime performance on both the operating system and host level, with a focus on upgraded Pro Tools support.

ReValver MK III.V features

  • 21 amplifier models, including the Peavey 6505, 6505+, JSX, 3120, Classic, ValveKing, Masterpiece and Sensation.
  • 12 preamp models.
  • 9 power amp models.
  • 21 stompbox/pedal-type effects.
  • 12 rack-style effects.
