u-he Hive

The public beta period has been extended till end of March 2015 and a bunch of presets have been added as a Factory Preview.

Your feedback and things were simply too good – but also a bit too overwhelming – to finish this before my holidays. I’ll be back to finish this in March and we’ll probably release it in April (we’ll have a booth at Musikmesse…).

Changes in Hive rev 3304

  • New features:
    • Pre Presets…
    • On/Off Button for ModMatrix slots.
    • Extended Hive public beta serial till first quarter of 2015.
    • Keyboard style switch.
  • Bugfixes:
    • Synth Engine buttons now working when ‘Link’ is enabled.
    • Dropped ‘%’ for Vibrato.

The new public beta is available to download for Windows and Mac from the u-he forum. An updated Linux version is coming.
Hive is available for purchase at a 30% discount during the public beta period.

kakl AudioParlour releases The Marauder distortion plugin (beta)

kakl AudioParlour has released a free public beta of The Marauder, a distortion effect plug-in.

The Marauder

A unique distortion plugin which can range from transparent to seriously mangling the signal.

In basic terms, the signal hits a pre-amp stage (Drive), which is then distributed between two uniquely modelled VCAs, both of which can be driven to extreme overdrive (Gain A/B) – with a FB-compressor style envelope controlling the distribution between those two circuits.

The final stage is a time-domain model, utilizing some physical modelling and dynamic convolution which can also be driven hard, adding beef and a certain ‘physicality’ to the sound as you might get with traditional IRs, but somewhat more ‘alive’ (in our estimation)

The Marauder features

  • Analog inspired distortion.
  • Four unique gain stages.
  • Goes from subtle to extreme.
  • Organic, syrupy sounds.
  • Contour your overdrive with a feedback-compressor styled envelope.

The beta of the Marauder is currently available for Windows (32-bit VST). 64-bit and AU/RTAS support is in development. The final retail version will cost approximately $50 USD.
