AudioThing has announced the TX-101, a 4-tracks sequencer designed for the creation of evolving rhythm patterns.
Each track has 4 different samples (16 samples total), incl. organic glitches & metal hits.
It is possible to store eight presets that can be joined and looped together to build a 128 steps sequence (16×8). It is also possible to sequence Delay and Flanger effects as two additional tracks. Both parameters (cutoff, resonance, effects) and steps can be randomized separately.
There are 6 different variations (.nki instruments) of TX-101 for different mood/styles: master, ambient, hard, leslie, modulations, talking.
Sequencer: 4 Tracks and 16 Steps + tracks for Delay and Flanger.
Inear Display has announced the release of R_Mem, a granulator effect plug-in with additional ring-modulator, multimode filter and delay.
It lets you deconstruct the input signal and turn it into a totally different sound, from windy soundscapes to noisy clicks. What makes it special is the addition of a modulation matrix driven by 4 LFOs and of a morphing system that lets you store two states and crossfade between them. For even more radical sound mangling, both state slots can be filled with random values.
The full version also comes with 50 royalty-free samples (24 Bit / 44.1 kHz) : a selection of dark soundscapes and sound effects carefully crafted from a mix of field recordings and digital experiments.
Inear Display has announced Eurydice, a multi-effect plug-in for Mac, dedicated to sound mangling.
It relies on two parallel processors, each one combining a granulizer/stutter effect, a multimode filter, a bitcrusher and a LFO to achieve Lo-Fi artifacts as well as a wide range of drills and glitches.
If you like turning your sounds into abstract textures, or adding all kind of otherworldy artifacts to your beats, Eurydice is a new weapon of choice. And if you want to get surprised, just click the random button for instant noisy gratification.
2 Granulizer / Stutter effects with up to 1 second looping.
2 Multimode filters (lowpass, highpass, bandpass and notch).
3 LFOs (can sync to tempo).
MIDI program change support.
Lifetime free updates for registered customers.
The Eurydice for Mac (VST/AU) is available at the introductory price of 10 EUR (50% off regular).
Sugar Bytes has announced version 1.5 of its Turnado multi-effect audio manipulation plugin, in collaboration with beat-boxer and vocalist Beardyman, who requested lots of useful improvements and features.
Sugar Bytes celebrates the Turnado update with a limited time promotion.
Beardyman about the update:
“There is quite simply nothing like Turnado on the market, so when it came to developing a multi-effects solution for the ground-breakingly complex live-looping system I’ve just finished building for my live shows, I was relieved to discover that Turnado was exactly what I needed to produce music live, in real time. Turnado’s control methodology and super low CPU overhead make it the only viable solution, and luckily it sounds amazing! Preset changes happen in under 2 ms, meaning one instance of Turnado can provide a world of options. However, there were many small, subtle but important changes I needed to be made to Turnado, and fortunately the guys at Sugar Bytes were eager to enhance Turnado with my suggestions and fulfilled and elaborated on many of the features I requested. Features have been added, existing features have been extended or enhanced and there have been some and extra modes implemented deep within the engine which all make Turnado my all-round desert-island multi-effect.
The Tonalizers can now snap to a variety of scales, and keys, quantisation parameters have been extended, the knobs can now send midi to enable Turnado-style automation-lane based morphing of any plugin in your DAW, LFO’s can now be made to snap rigidly to the host’s alignment, extra rhythmic subdivisions have been added to loopers and the stutter module, new delay and reverb modes have been added to enhance their usability and new sync options have been optimised in the form of extra modes.
As a true Turnado power-user, I can safely say that version 1.5 is a notable leap forward for an already world-beating plugin. If you don’t have it in your arsenal then I’m guessing you simply don’t own a computer.
So, in return for their invaluable input in helping me build my dream live rig, I’ve agreed to share some of my precious presets with you, you lucky human!”

Inear Display has announced Bucephal, delay effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
Bucephal is a delay plugin not meant to be used as a delay. It gives you two parallel delay lines, each one up to 2 seconds, and lets you mangle delay times with two nice modulators. Thanks to an envelope follower and a LFO, Bucephal can fulfill some of your daily glitch needs, morphing between vibrato, flanging, pitch shifting, and crushing effects. The large modulation range of delay times can lead to some pleasingly annoying artifacts, and if your incoming audio needs even more dirt, the randomizer and waveshaper will be there to help.
Inear Display’s Bucephal delay plug-in lets you mangle delay times with modulators.
2 parallel delay lines with up to 2 seconds length.
Time parameter interpolation provides nice pitch artifacts.
First delay line time can be controlled by an envelope follower.
Second delay line time can be controlled by a LFO (tempo free or synced).
Classic waveforms for the LFO (sin, square, saw up, saw down, triangle, sample and hold).
7 mix modes.
Soft clipping and waveshaping can be applied to the output.
Clean minimalist interface.
Lifetime free updates for registered customers.
Bucephal for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for the introductory price of 10 EUR until June 8, 2012 (regular 20 EUR).
