Loomer updates Sequent to v1.3.11

Loomer Sequent

Loomer has updated the Sequent modular multi-effects unit to version 1.3.11.

Sequent has seven individual effect blocks: a Beat Looper; two Filters, both switchable between lowpass, bandpass, and highpass modes and capable of self oscillation even without an audio input; an oversampled Distortion unit; a Gate with variable depth and slew; a Panner; and a Delay unit capable of sub millisecond delay times, great for creating everything for from dub, slapback, and bouncing ball style echoes, to metallic comb filters or flanger effects.

Changes in Sequent v1.3.11

  • (fix: Mac OS X) Cables between effect modules can now be removed using a single button mouse.
  • (fix: Mac OS X) Fixed issue which could cause Sequent to be skipped by Kore or Maschine’s plug-in scan.
  • (fix: Mac OS X Audio Unit) Space key-presses will now always be passed through to Logic, ensuring that Logic’s transport can be started and stopped.
  • (fix: Mac OS X) Gatekeeper signed installers now install correctly on Mac OS X 10.5.
  • (improvement: Windows) The 32-bit and 64-bit VST plug-ins are now installed as separate components. You can choose which one(s) to install, as well as selecting different install folders for each architecture.
  • (fix: Mac OS X Audio Unit) Fixed issue which caused Reaper to host new instances of Sequent as a mono plug-in.
  • (fix: Mac OS X Audio Unit) Fixed minor memory leak in parameter names.
  • (improvement) Clearer UI fonts in various places.
  • (improvement: Linux) Presets and configuration files are now located to comply with the XDG Base Directory Specification. Older installations will still use any existing preset library location to maintain backwards compatibility.

Sequent for Windows, Mac and Linux is available to purchase for £49 GBP.

Loomer updates Sequent to v1.3.3

Loomer has updated its Sequent effect plugin to version 1.3.3.

Sequent is a modular multi-effects unit, the ideal tool for mangling audio on stage or in the studio.

Loomer Sequent

Changes in Sequent v1.3.3

  • (feature) Keyboard entry of rotary parameter values. Rotary controls can now be typed directly into by clicking on the text value below the control.
  • (improvement:Mac OS X) Installer and all installed components are now signed in compliance with Mac OS X 10.8′s Gatekeeper system.
  • (improvement:Linux) When using the JACK audio system in standalone mode, the JACK Transport now syncs Sequent’s tempo, start/stop status, and playhead location.
  • (improvement) Step response on the filter, distortion, pan, and delay module parameters has been significantly reduced to allow for tighter control of sequenced automation.
  • (improvement) Changing sequencer patterns via MIDI keyboard can no longer cause audio glitches when using a realtime audio driver.
  • (fix) The Master sequencer will now correctly follow a host’s PPQ position, and restart in response to a host’s transport restarting.
  • (fix:RTAS) Fix for the right-channel muting when bypassing in Pro Tools when used on a mono to stereo track.
  • (improvement) Significantly improved UI response speed; reduced CPU usage when parameters are automated whilst the UI is open.
  • (improvement:Windows) Removed C++ runtime libraries redistributable requirement for RTAS plug-ins. The installer no longer installs the C++ runtime library redistributable components when installing the RTAS plug-ins.
  • (improvement) Routing and sequencing windows are now lighter and clearer.
  • (improvement) Factory presets now use a compressed pattern format, which are significantly smaller, and so improves preset loading and search times.

Sequent for Windows, Mac and Linux is available to purchase for £49 GBP.

18 free patches for u-he Diva by Petri Suhonen

u-he DIVA

Petri Suhonen has released a collection of 18 free patches for the virtual analog Diva synthesizer by u-he.

Diva is a virtual analogue synthesizer by U-He and here’s 18 free patches for it, created by me.

These presets are made via the help of randomization (but a little bit of hand tweaking was involved as well). They do not represent any particular genre though, but you’ll find leads, basses, pads and experimental sounds that can be used for various different musical styles.

The patches are free to use in commercial and/or non-commercial audio productions.

Cinematique Instruments clears out Cement 2 pattern generator for Kontakt

Cinematique Instruments has announced it is continuing its Clearing Out 2012 with Cement 2, a sequencer based pattern generator which is well suitable to enrich your music production and lend it a specific character.

Cinematique Instruments Cement 2
Cement 2 features 1 complex patch with a 16 step on-board sequencer for Kontakt.

As the name suggests you can easily create cementing textures, crawling patterns or a fundament for your musical idea. Cement 2 has the same instrument structure as Cement 1, but is filled up with three complete different sounds.

Cement 2 comes up with three layered instruments which can create numerous sound colors. The instruments are:

  • a Muted Baritone Ukulele (2 Round Robin)
  • Electric Guitar Harmonics (2 Round Robin)
  • Marimba

For changing the entire sound character, Cement 2 provides plenty of options to modify the sound to your very own requirements: lowpass- and highpass filter (with a random high pass modulator), distortion- and speaker switches, separate length settings and separate slider to set the amount of two delays and a reverb.

Cement 2 runs in stand alone mode as well as in-sync to your host application. Just easily click on the 16th note of your choice to play the sound – a second click increases the velocity level – a third click removes the note, then click on the note symbol to change its pitch. That´s it!

Cement 2 is available to purchase for 22 EUR. A bundle with Cement is 27 EUR.

Cinematique Instruments launches Clearing Out 2012: Junk Drum & Specimenphone

Cinematique Instruments has released Junk Drum and The Specimenphone, the first two releases of its Clearing Out 2012 sale.

Junk Drum is a tiny step sequencer based drumcomputer. It is perfect suited to lend your music a percussive colour and enrich your drum track with unique spots. You can easily create your own groove or let Junk Drum play in Random mode.

Cinematique Instruments Junk Drum
The sounds of Junk Drum are based on a toy drum.

Junk Drum comes up with three different sounds: HiHat, Bass Drum and Snare. For modifying the character of your drum pattern, Junk Drum provides plenty of options to change the sound to your very own requirements: lowpass- and highpass filter (with a random high- and low pass modulator), distortion-, lofi-, speaker- and phaser-switches, separate fader to set the length and volume of all three sounds and a delay.

Junk Drums runs in standalone mode as well as in-sync to your host application. In order to create a pattern just select one of the 16 steps of your favourite track and adjust the right volume by clicking and sliding the respective step. If you want to let Junk Drum automatically play just switch on the unique random mode and lean back!

The Junk Drum library for Kontakt is available to purchase for 15 EUR.

The Specimenphone is an assortment of lots of metal bars which are freely hanging on a metallic frame. The object looks like a giant mallet instrument. The bars are metallic product samples which are used to demonstrate different kinds of metal, different sizes and forms such as square chrome bars, brass table legs or steel poles. The length of these metallic objects varies from 1 meter (40 inch) to nearly 2 meter (75 inch).

Cinematique Instruments Specimenphone
The custom Specimenphone instrument features metal bars hit with a stick & rubber hammer.

We hit all 18 bars and poles with a stick as well as with a rubber hammer in 1-3 velocity layer and 3 Round Robin variations. The sound we recorded with a stick are layered along the white keys, the other along the black keys. In addition to this we provide different options to shape the sound: A cabinet and a rotary simulation, 2 different delays, a reverb and a knob to adjust the release of the sounds. Finally we included the default arpeggiator of Kontakt with some presets.

All in all we are coming up with an instrument with a couple of weird and unique sounds. You can create sounds you never heard before. It is a great fun to play with Specimenphone.

The Specimenphone library for Kontakt is available to purchase for 13 EUR.
