de la Mancha basic65

de la Mancha has announced that its basic65 synthesizer instrument for Windows is now available for free.

basic 65 is a monophonic synth, inspired by the classic 80s home computer, the Commodore 64 and its legendary SID chip. Building on the waveforms and signal path of this famous chip, basic 65 adds further features and options to take things a step further.

The double arpeggiator allows complex versions of that retro 8-bit game sound and the modulation options inspire experimentation via the mod envelope and 2 comprehensive LFOs. Pulse width modulation, ring modulation and oscillator detune/sync are key ingredients in the signature sound. Throw in some pitch drift, bit drift, a sprinkle of dirt and randomisation and you have a wide range of lofi, chiptune, retro-tastic sounds at your disposal.

basic 65 was co-developed with sink, who also made the presets.

basic65 for Windows (VST) is now available to download as freeware. A donation to Cancer Research UK is appreciated.

WaveShaper releases Plasticid Dr-110 & TubeSt8tion kit free sample packs

WaveShaper has released Plasticid Dr-110 and TubeSt8tion kit, two new electronic drum machine sample packs.

WaveShaper Plasticid Dr-110

The Boss DR-110 is a cute little drum machine from the early 80s, the last analogue one made by Roland.

The overall sound is very reminiscent to the much praised Tr-808 and Tr-606. The kick is punchier than the 606, but the hats and cymbals will provide you that instant acid factor and the snare is also very snappy. The clap is similar to the 808′s one, so you’re right by thinking that the DR-110 will give you that classic, sought-after sound but with some slight difference and much character.

If you are into electro/house/acid/retro/techno music, you will like this one for sure !

WaveShaper TubeSt8tion kit

The Plasticid Dr-110 sample pack is available in two versions:

  • Free: mono, 16bit/44.1khz audio samples.
  • Pay-what-you-want: stereo, 24bit/48khz audio samples.

The TubeSt8tion kit is a free samplepack (24bit/48khz, stereo Wav files) made using a Novation DrumStation processed through tube preamp and tube compressor gear.
The well-known and beloved sound of the famous tr-808 now has even more warmth, dirt and punch.

WaveShaper launches with Monokkon and [UDS + EH] Sample Packs

WaveShaper

WaveShaper has launched its website with the release of Monokkon and [UDS + EH], two sample packs by Sink.

WaveShaper Monokken

Monokkon Sample Pack is a collection of sounds made with the Gakken SX-150 analog synthesizer and the Korg Monotron.

The Gakken is a cheap japanese do-it-yourself analogue synthesizer. The Monotron is korg’s smallest and latest analogue synth, using the same filter as the legendary ms-20. Both are fun pieces of gear to play with !

All the sounds in this kit was made using these nasty little plastic units (and even sometimes both at the same time by feeding one into the other using their external audio input). The overall sound is raw, bleepy and modulated : enjoy !

WaveShaper [UDS + EH]

The [UDS + EH] Sample Pack is a collection of drum kit sounds.

This drum kit was made by processing some sounds from a rare russian vintage Marsh UDS drum synth by the nasty Electro-Harmonix Micro Synth. Enjoy some filthy analogue goodness !

The Monokkon and [UDS + EH] sample packs are available in two versions:

  • Free: mono, 16bit/44.1khz audio samples.
  • Pay-what-you-want: stereo, 24bit/48khz audio samples.

de la Mancha releases truc 2

de la Mancha truc 2

de la Mancha has announced the release of truc 2, a modulated multi-effect plug-in co-developed with sink.

truc2 is a multi-effect plug-in with 4 different effect modules and two automated XY pads to modulate their levels and parameters. It is designed to add variation and movement, anywhere along the scale of subtle to overkill and is suitable for any material

The 4 effect modules are DIRT, GRAIN, RING and DELAY. The first XY pad modulates the volume/mix level of each module, whilst the second XY pad modulates any 4 of the 15 automatable parameters. Both XY pads can be moved manually and additionally automated with a variety of LFO shapes, speeds and depths

Changes in truc 2

  • Correct real-time rendering of all XY modulations.
  • Enhanced XY pad LFO modulation options.
  • XY pucks can be dragged whilst being modulated by LFO.
  • Graphical representation of modulations on XY pads and parameter knobs.
  • More dirt options.
  • More ring mod / pan / vol mod options.
  • Completely new GUI.

truc 2 (including bonus plug-in truc2 mini) is available to purchase as a VST effect plug-in for Windows PC, priced at $24 USD.
