  • Improved algorithm.
  • New preset management functionality accessible from within the plug-in GUI allows user presets to be used across all plug-in formats on all platforms.
  • New factory presets organized by application.

  • New authorization app for a more streamlined user experience.

Pitchmap for Windows and Mac is available to purchase for $399 USD/369 EUR (incl. VAT).

A special “side-grade” edition of Pitchmap is also available for a limited time for owners of other complementary pitch processing software, priced at $199 USD/ 179 EUR.

Point Blank intros free Monster Timestretch device for Ableton Live

Point Blank has announced Monster Timestretch, a free Max for Live device for Ableton Live by Daniel Herbert.

The new Max for Live device from Point Blank is a timestretching plugin based on a technique known as phase vocoding and can time stretch sounds in realtime. It’s similar to the fantastic Paul Stretch and is ideal for creating slowly evolving drone-like textures as well as more futuristic sounds.

There are four different modes which allow you to play through and explore the sound in a variety of ways and literally freeze the sound.

The plugin is limited to processing the first 30 seconds of an audio file and only works within Ableton as a M4L device and will not play in any other DAW. We recommend you use resampling if you need to record the effect to a new audio file.

The plugin is a free download at Point Blank.

123creative releases Epralux ORB7000 octave reverb system

123Creative Epralux ORB7000

123creative has announced the release of Epralux ORB7000, an octave reverb system plug-in for Windows.

Epralux ORB7000 – is not classic reverb simulation of real acoustic space. ORB7000 is special, artistic and creative octave / pitch-shifting reverb system for creating special sound and space effects, new sound colors and unique experimental sounds.

Main feature that makes ORB7000 different is special particle based pitch-shifting unit that splits reverbed signal to 3 sub-signals: octave down, normal, octave up. Then sound is split for very small time sequences (in milliseconds), octave down circuit play sound de-tuned -1 octave while octave-up circuit plays sound one octave +1 pitch shifted. This create really unique sound effects (to hear this effect best try ORB7000 with melodical sund samples like guitar, piano, synthesizer or human voice).

ORB7000 is usable in any musical style from classic pop, rock to more experimental styles like ambient music, cinematic music or electronic dance music.

Epralux ORB7000 features

  • Reverb unit with parameters: pre-delay, room size, damp, width, dry-wet, stages, time curve, amp curve, min time, max time, low freqency, high. freqency, sync, pre-delay, invert amp.
  • Particle pitch-shifting / detuning / octave unit: octave down, normal, octave up.
  • Preset manager with 48 built-in presets.

The effect plug-in is available for Windows (VST) for at the introductory price of 17.80 EUR (regular 34.90 EUR).

Audio Damage launches DubJr, Grainshift & Errorbox Eurorack modules

Audio Damage DubJr

Audio Damage has announced the release of DubJr, Grainshift and Errorbox, three Eurorack modules.

After two years of R&D (a sentence fragment that in no way conveys the experience we’ve just been through), and coincidentally during the week of Audio Damage’s tenth anniversary, we have succeeded in releasing a hardware platform for our DSP effects, and are ludicrously proud to unveil the first three Audio Damage hardware products: DubJr, Grainshift, and Errorbox.

Audio Damage Eurorack modules

  • ADM01 DubJr is the delay from Dubstation, in a pint-sized Eurorack modular format, for your knob-twisting pleasure.
  • ADM02 Grainshift is a real-time granular pitch-shifter and chaos effect for the Eurorack modular format. From simple smooth micro-tuned pitch shifting and chorus effects on up to full metal granular chaos, Grainshift is a versatile module, easy to use and fun to have.
  • ADM03 Errorbox is just like any other tool-kit utility module, except that in this tool-kit, all the tools are chainsaws and rabid badgers. Includes a sample rate reducer, bit rate reducer, and ERR algorithm (as found in the Kombinat Dva plug-in).

The modules are available to purchase via Audio Damage’s retail partners for $179 USD each (currently exclusively at Analogue Haven).

Sunsine Audio releases Effectus for Audulus

Sunsine Audio Effectus

Sunsine Audio has released Effectus, a collection of 4 stereo effects for Audulus.

Effectus contains 4 stereo effects ready for standalone or Audiobus use.

Effectus features

  • Shifter – Shifter contains a pitch shift section as well as a ring mod section. Both can be used independently or mixed together as well as mixed with the original signal. This is the free demo instrument.
  • Binary (Chop) and Binary (Ring) – Binary is an amplitude modulator or gate device, and comes in two flavors. Binary (Chop) allows exploration of slower speed stereo gating effects while Binary (Ring) brings the amplitude modulation into the audio range, producing ring modulation effects with a different tone than the “traditional” ring modulation in Shifter produces.
  • Mothra – Mothra is a sequenced and filtered reverb. Each input is individually fed through a network of distortion devices, simple low pass filters, and reverbs which are then delivered to a 16 step sequencer providing strange stereo and resonant spaces which can be “stepped” through.
  • Time Gap – Time Gap is a filtered stereo delay with cross feed between the left and right channels. A simple high pass filter is followed by three delay units with two resonant low pass filters placed between them, delays can be cross fed at two points in the signal chain.

Effectus for Audulus costs $3.99 USD.
