Native Instruments releases free Replika delay effect plugin

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Dec 18, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Native Instruments has launched Replika, a free delay effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Native Instruments Replika

REPLIKA packs two professional quality delays and a powerful diffusion algorithm into a sleek, streamlined interface. Simple to use with a resonant filter and classic phaser built in, REPLIKA is a versatile delay for anything from subtle slapback to warped sheets of noise.

REPLIKA provides three distinct algorithms. Modern is a digital delay that delivers the crystal-clear repeats of high-end units. Vintage Digital delivers the charismatic grit of early studio delays. Diffusion delivers a fresh sound that rides the line between delay and reverb.

A high-class resonant filter and classic phaser add subtle to drastic motion that can be sync’d to the beat for intense sound design. You can even adjust your signal’s placement in the mix with normal, wide, and ping pong stereo modes.

REPLIKA’s powerful sound shaping features are laid out on a slick, essentials-only interface. Choose your delay mode and fine-tune lows and highs. One-knob subdivision adjustment steps you through the most widely-used delay times. And adding modulation is just as easy with simple combinations of three intuitive knobs and two buttons to choose between phaser and filter – lowpass, highpass or notch.

Replika for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available to download at no charge.

Applied Acoustics Systems releases Abstractions for Ultra Analog VA-2

Applied Acoustics Systems Abstractions by Richard Devine

Applied Acoustics Systems has announced the release of Abstractions, a sound bank for the Ultra Analog VA-2 synthesizer and AAS Player plug-ins in collaboration with artist and sound designer Richard Devine.

Abstractions is the third sound bank title by Richard Devine in AAS’ Sound Bank Series following Microsound Textures for the Chromaphone creative percussion synthesizer and Harmonic Geometry for the String Studio VS-2 string modeling synthesizer. This collection of 127 signature sounds covers standard analog categories but revisited with Richard Devine’s unique aesthetics. These finely crafted sounds range from super precise percussion hits to rich and intricate ambient textures and are sure to provide many hours of exploration in evocative soundscapes.

“We worked with Richard on Ultra Analog VA-2’s factory sounds at the time of the release; We enjoyed the sounds so much that we asked him for more in the form of a signature sound bank,” says Marc-Pierre Verge, CEO of Applied Acoustics Systems, “The result is a collection of exclusive sounds that once again showcase beautifully Richard’s style and mastery of sound design.”

The Abstractions sound bank is available for purchase for the introductory price of $19.50 USD until January 16th, 2015 (regular $39 USD). The instant download delivery package includes both a Ultra Analog VA-2 bank file and the free AAS Player plug-in (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX).
