QuikQuak Pitchwheel

QuikQuak has released version 2.5 of Pitchwheel, a real-time pitch changing plug-in for Windows and mac.

The Pitchwheel plug-in freely alters the pitch of a sound without changing it’s length. It has a large, easy to use dial and simple parameters making it a fast and creative effect unit. It can give fine tuning control from fractions of a semi-tone to huge multi-octave pitch swings.

Changes in Pitchwheel v2.5

  • Halved latency down to 45ms for better live feedback.
  • Dial range now up to four octaves.
  • Clearer interface.

Pitchwheel is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) for £35 GBP. A demo version is available for download from the website.

QuikQuak updates Fusion Field to v2.5

QuikQuak Fusion Field 2.5

QuikQuak has released version 2.5 of Fusion Field, a diffusion reverb plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Fusion Field is a smooth diffusion reverb that sits beautifully in a mix. A clean, unobtrusive sound with a natural falloff that floats and complements the source material perfectly. Designed to imitate complex, natural spaces, it is also very easy to use. The main ‘cloud’ display represents the reverb in terms of time and frequency, showing all the main parameters and EQ in a natural way. The reverberation can be dampened in the upper and lower frequencies, allowing soft sibilance and a graceful, lifting air to the sound.

Having very few controls does not hinder Fusion Field’s usefulness. The dial ranges have been sloped to give the best sensitivity in useful regions, and the whole unit can create short snappy rooms, or vast time-suspended spaces, and anything in between.

Changes in Fusion Field v2.5

  • Greatly increased diffusion when using short Spread values.
  • A smoother, more realistic attack phase for the Distance parameter.
  • An Echo control for additional effects, creating a delayed wave of reverb – useful for large ethereal spaces, or tight metallic boxes.
  • New GUI design, with an optimised animated display.
  • All aspects of the filtering, Decay, Spread and Distance parameters are now shown on the main display. Using a cloud representation of time and frequency energy, to give an instant visual interpretation. You’ll know what it sounds like directly from this impression.
  • Total of 48 modulators now include randomised LFOs for extra decorrelation.
  • Algorithm optimisations to allow for these additional features, keeping CPU resources as low as possible.
  • Re-balanced to fix the channel bias problem.
  • A new set of presets.

Notes: Having additional algorithm features meant that the whole system had to be retuned. All dials keep the same ratios and times, so it is compatible with the previous version and saved presets. Previous users will notice the filter dials have been arranged in clearer high and low sections.

Fusion Field 2.5 is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) for £50 GBP. An evaluation version can be downloaded from the QuikQuak wesbite.

QuikQuak releases UpStereo 2.0 public beta

QuikQuak UpStereo 2

QuikQuak has released a public beta version of UpStereo 2.0, a freeware stereo enhancer plug-in.

UpStereo is a simple, useful tool – it makes your mixes bigger, in stereo width and loudness.
Using three basic basic systems:

  1. A fixed frequency EQ designed to lift the highest audio frequencies, and boost the bass.
  2. A stereo width unit, for expanding stereo sounds so they appear wider and fatter. At extreme levels other characteristics are also brought out of the sound, so this can also be used as a tonal control for individual instruments. This also has a mono setting, useful for squashing up those aggressive samples that take over the mix.
  3. A loudness button that raises the waveform to the limits in a smooth curve. This saturation gives the mix a more perceived loudness, without clipping.

These stages create an overall loudness effect on the final output, so a gain control is included to keep the limits in check.

Changes in UpStereo 2.0 beta

  • Completely 3D user-interface.
  • Retains usability of traditional 2D design.
  • Movable camera and light – alter the mood of the plug-in.
  • Lays foundation for future 3D interfaces with potential for zoomable, multi-side plug-ins, and realistic 3D copies of hardware devices.

The beta of UpStereo 2.0 is currently only available for Windows PC (version 1.01 is still available for Windows and Mac)
