  • 2 inputs, 2 outputs: mono, stereo and mid/side configurations.

Rough Diamond Productions releases granulOSO v0.5 and studioCLOCK v1.0 + updates

Rough Diamond Productions granulOSO

Rough Diamond Productions has released two new VST plug-ins for Windows PC: granulOSO (v0.5 beta), a granular sample masher, and studioCLOCK, a free plug-in which tells the time.

As well as synth primitives, granulOSO can be coaxed into lo-fi timestretching with degree of stretch, and grain size adjustable on the fly. Whilst doing this, granulOSO uses a mono trigger with polyphonic pitch so each new note’s samples join in rather than start again so it can be used as a gnarly harmonizer.

granulOSO features

  • Mono or 6 note Poly.
  • 3 loop modes.
  • ADSR Envelope.
  • 4 LFOs [1 each of triangle, ramp, saw and square].
  • LFOs are freely assignable to modulate pitch, detune, coarse loop points and fine loop points.
  • Dual waveform displays with zoom.
  • Plays 16 or 24 bit wave files [32/44.1/48/88.2/96k].
  • Includes example source material and 8 presets.

Rough Diamond Productions has also announced the release of version 1.0 of autoBED (lookahead ducker with sidechain input), baddASS (bass drum fortification device), and sideGATE (lookahead flexigate).

Until August 1st, a bundle of these three plug-ins are available at an introductory price of £25 GBP, a savings of £10 GBP.

The current beta version of granulOSO (and other beta plug-ins) is free for personal use, or donationware (minimum of £5 GBP) for commercial use.

Rough Diamond Productions baddASS

Rough Diamond Productions has released baddASS, a free VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.

baddASS is a single channel bass drum reinforment tool:

This is a very simple synth designed to add oomph to bass drums. Whenever the incoming signal [bass drum] is above the threshhold [sensitivity] baddASS’s gate opens allowing through whatever frequency you’ve chosen [20 – 200 Hz]. baddASS plays the note for upto a second [release] and can perform a pitch bend [detune] in either direction.

baddASS features

  • Sensitivity, when the input rises above the threshhold, baddASS opens the gate to the synth section.
  • Release, the time it takes for the baddASS note to fade out (If you’re using the detune function, this is also the time it takes for the detune to complete).
  • Frequency, to set the base frequency.
  • Detune, bending the note before the end of the release.
  • Drive, level and threshold controls for drive.
  • Click & Boost, controls the attack of the baddASS output (higher click setting -> faster attack), boost is 0 to 30 db.
  • Gate input, input signal is also gated before becoming the dry output.
  • Dry/Wet mix control.

Rough Diamond Productions releases voldeLAY

Rough Diamond Productions voldeLAY

Rough Diamond Productions has released voldeLAY, a stereo lookahead volume dependant delay chain effect plug-in for Windows PC.

voldeLAY consists of 8 stereo delay units. Each unit automixes its output between the input signal [dry] and the delayed signal [wet] according to sidechain input vs threshhold.

As a signal gets louder its delay time jumps creating stutters, jitters and the like. Obviously, that’s at the extreme end of what voldeLAY does – it can also be used for flanger and chorus effects as well as pitch warping and making odd phasiness.

voldeLAY features

  • 8 daisy-chained stereo delays with independant delay times automatically cross-fade between themselves depending on the level of the input.
  • Each delay has controls for delay time and threshhold, above which the delay fades in according to the crossfade time.
  • All 8 time and threshhold values are scalable via multiplier and sensitivity controls with an LFO for each.
  • Feedback applies to all delays equally and a post effect mix knob provides dry/wet controls.
  • The number of delays in the chain can be switched between 4 and 8, the threshhold response can be inverted, and the inputs can be wired in series or parallel.
  • Look-ahead of upto 2 seconds, and the sidechain/trigger input can be toggled between inputs 1&2 and 3&4.

Rough Diamond Productions simpleTON MK I

Rough Diamond Productions has released version 0.7 of simpleTON MK I, a freeware stereo filter with drivestage VST plug-in for Windows PC.

simpleTON MK I v0.7 features

  • Filters: High Pass & Low Pass with filter frequency (knob) and resonance (ring) controls.
  • Shape, switch between 12 and 24 db/octave slope – 24db when lit.
  • Drive (red knob) – amount of distortion & Mix (ring) – fully left = dry, fully right = wet.
  • Signal path: input -> HP -> LP -> DRIVE -> MIX -> output.

simpleTON is available as freeware for personal use (commerical use requires a minimum donation of £5).

It looks like the sideGATE, freqDELAY, deeeeeLAY and sidePRESS plug-ins have recently been updated, so you might want to pick those up as well. These updates include improved loading times, CPU usage, stability and a few more improvements.
