Vuvuzela by Dundas Football Club @ Flickr

Some interesting things I found recently:

The sound of the vuvuzela seems to irritate quite a number of people, so here’s a round-up of some solutions on how to watch the World Cup games without this loud horn.

# Filter The Vuvuzela Horn Out of the World Cup; Learn JACK Routing on Linux

Are you a World Cup fan annoyed by the constant sound of the South African vuvuzela horn? Wish you could remove that sound from your World Cup viewing experience? Do you want to learn a little bit about powerful modular effects routing can be on Linux? Either? Both? Call it “football”? “Soccer”? Any way round, we’ve got you covered.

# Waves Vuvuzela Noise Reduction Solution

Waves has a processing chain available to download.

In response to the widely publicized complaints from TV viewers and broadcasters of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Waves is proud to unveil a solution which dramatically reduces the problematic sound of the omnipresent Vuvuzela trumpet favored by South African soccer fans.

Working in conjunction with a major television broadcaster, we've precision-crafted a preset processing chain which drastically decreases Vuvuzela noise: The WNS Waves Noise Suppressor and the Q10 Paragraphic Equalizer. Together, they not only minimize Vuvuzela noise, they increase the intelligibility of the game announcers' play-by-play action and color commentary.

The processing chain for Vuvuzela noise reduction is now available as load-and-use sessions for Pro Tools, Waves MultiRack, and Cubase.

# Prosoniq VuvuX

# Sensomusic Usine

Sensomusic has released tons of freebies for its Usine users.

Good news for all Usine free Users: Get more than 200 Add-ons and ready-made patches for free. Just register on the forum (it's totally free).

Peter Kirn at Create Digital Music also report on this one in Hundreds of Free Musical Tools Now Free to Add to Usine.

Usine is an overlooked gem in music making, a PC-based modular environment and live performance tool that runs as a host or VST plug-in. Pick the modules you need from a set of powerful building blocks, and build a custom musical rig, complete with multi-touch control on new Windows devices. It sounds like something you might request from a magical genie, but the thing is real, priced at EUR120 (or just EUR60 for educational users).

As with any modular environment, having ample access to powerful modules and some patches to get you started is everything. But that makes this week’s news worth noting: co-developer Olivier Sens has made some 200+ add-ons and patches free. All you have to do to grab them is register on the forum. The demo version of Usine is surprisingly capable, too, so if you’ve been waiting to test-drive and you have a Windows machine (or a dual-boot Mac), now could be a good time.

# Review of the Chauvet Slimpar56 LED Light and Obey3 Light Controller

Mark @ Modulate This! on the Chauvet Slimpar56 & Obey3:

In a recent post I documented my new live rig with a drawing and a time-lapse video sans lights and light controller. I’m happy to report I just received and have been testing the brand new LED SlimPAR™ 56 and Obey™ 3 compact DMX controller so I thought I’d share some notes.

Prosoniq sonicWORX Pro

Prosoniq has announced sonicWORX Pro, a totally new approach to audio editing.

sonicWORX Pro uses the latest advances in Digital Signal Processing to access your audio material in a totally new way allowing you to view and edit audio at an unprecedented resolution. Working in tandem with intelligent pattern detection used for signal separation and realtime mouse-over preview our innovative time-frequency transform technology helps to quickly identify, select and isolate interesting features in a mix, such as individual notes, instruments and voice. An incredibly versatile tool that allows both micro-editing as well as easy suppressing, extracting or processing instruments within a mix for remixing, mastering or restoration.

sonicWORX Pro pricing and availability will be announced at Musikmesse in April.

Prosoniq has also announced that RTAS and VST products as well as new AudioUnit versions are expected to be available in Q4 of 2009. Furthermore, the decision was made to discontinue its products for the Windows platform.

From the news page:

Bernhard Bouché, CEO at Prosoniq says that the Windows platform, though having a larger market share, has become increasingly unattractive due to the widespread availability of pirated Prosoniq products.
