Plogue sforzando

Plogue has released sforzando, a free SFZ player powered by the ARIA Engine.

Plogue is proud to announce the release of its new and free sample player that is highly SFZ 2.0 compliant. Advanced musicians and hobbyists now have a free and powerful tool to experiment and share instruments without relying on a proprietary format.

sforzando has only one slot, no fancy UI, effects or mixers. So everything needs to be done at the SFZ text file level, no cheating. sforzando is also a name given for a sudden change in music dynamics which is represented by the “sfz” symbol.

sforzando for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/standalone) is available to download now.

Xoxos releases Element free sampler plugin

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Sep 28, 2012 - comment 0 comments

Xoxos has announced the release of Element, a free sampler/sample player instrument for Windows.

Xoxos Element (dark skin)
Xoxos Element sample player with dark skin (click image for light skin).

not really a sampler oc, it’s a wav player, but people often call them samplers..

loads one sample, does some loop modulation stuff, prolly more or less the same as samplers like this (eg. helios). loads 8 and 16 bit mono or stereo wavs.. and not in a fancy way, though it loads all the samples i’ve got. this was produced because i released some open source modules for synthedit to help people develop wav players.. i figured i ought to wrap one as a vst.

Element features

  • Wrap mode looping (‘normal looping’) with crossfade.
  • Bounce mode looping (forward-reverse).
  • Two crossfade modes: fixed time (up to 1s) or loop relative (up to entire length of loop).
  • 4 interpolation modes: floor (‘none’), linear, cubic and hermite.
  • Emulated downsampling.
  • Loop position can modulate filter cutoff.
  • Filter modes (low, band, high, cut, peak in moog, svf or biquad).
  • Curveable envelopes.
  • Modulating start/end (loop or otherwise) reverses playback if end is lower than start.
  • 8 voices poly.

The plug-in is available to download at no cost at http://www.xoxos.net/vst/element.zip (Windows VST).
