Plogue releases Chipcrusher bitcrusher, speaker simulator & noise machine

Plogue has announced the release of Chipcrusher, an advanced bitcrusher, a speaker simulator and noise machine effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Plogue Chipcrusher
Chipcrusher features DAC Encoding, Background Noise and Post-Processing.

It’s an audio effect which plays back input audio through a simulation of early lofi digital audio codecs (DAC Encoding), adds grit (Background Noise), and outputs through a selection of speaker and filter impulse responses (Post-Processing).

It can work as a VST/AU/RTAS plug-in for most major sequencing audio programs and supported tracker programs on Windows and OS X.

There is a wide spectrum of results achievable with chipcrusher. Here’s a few use cases:

  • Uniquely destroy/mangle a beat, a guitar or any other audio track.
  • Play single hits and emulate the sound of old samplers.
  • Add ‘accurate dirt’ to chipsounds’s output.
  • Etc.

Chipcrusher for Windows and Mac is available to purchase for $39 ex. VAT.

Plogue sforzando

Plogue has released sforzando, a free SFZ player powered by the ARIA Engine.

Plogue is proud to announce the release of its new and free sample player that is highly SFZ 2.0 compliant. Advanced musicians and hobbyists now have a free and powerful tool to experiment and share instruments without relying on a proprietary format.

sforzando has only one slot, no fancy UI, effects or mixers. So everything needs to be done at the SFZ text file level, no cheating. sforzando is also a name given for a sudden change in music dynamics which is represented by the “sfz” symbol.

sforzando for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/standalone) is available to download now.

Expert Sleepers updates Crossfade Loop Synth to v3.2.0

Expert Sleepers Crossfade Loop Synth

Expert Sleepers has announced an update for the Crossfade Loop Synth plugins for Windows and Mac.

From version 3, Crossfade Loop Synth is actually two plug-ins: Crossfade Loop Synth and Crossfade Loop Synth Effect. The effect version takes the power of Crossfade Loop Synth and turns it into a live sampler, a looper and a very unusual and powerful delay effect.

Changes in Crossfade Loop Synth v3.2.0

  • The Mac OS X AU & VST versions now support 64 bit operation.
  • The timing of note playback is much improved in the synth versions of the plug-in (now sample accurate).
  • Fixes a minor bug which would cause the plug-in to attempt to load an empty filename when loading a song in Plogue Bidule.

Crossfade Loop Synth for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $49 USD excl. VAT (if applicable).

Expert Sleepers updates Crossfade Loop Synth to v3.1.3

Expert Sleepers Crossfade Loop Synth

Expert Sleepers has released version 3.1.3 of Crossfade Loop Synth, a sample playback synth instrument and sampler effect for Windows and Mac.

From version 3, Crossfade Loop Synth is actually two plug-ins: Crossfade Loop Synth and Crossfade Loop Synth Effect. The effect version takes the power of Crossfade Loop Synth and turns it into a live sampler, a looper and a very unusual and powerful delay effect.

Changes in Crossfade Loop Synth v3.1.3

  • Fixed: Bug in the plug-in’s response to a MIDI All Notes Off message. In Plogue Bidule, this could cause a problem with the drones not reactivating when a plug-in was switched in and out of Bypass mode.

Crossfade Loop Synth for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $49 USD (plus VAT if applicable).
