Sonic Charge has announced the release of beatrick for Permut8, a free firmware update that turns the effect plugin into a beat mangler.
One of the worst kept secrets about Permut8 is that it supports “firmware replacements”. In case you have not heard about it before, a “Permut8 firmware” is a piece of code that can be loaded into Permut8 to extend or replace its signal processing algorithms. This is not in native code but a portable assembler format for a virtual machine that I have designed for fast and safe (sandboxed) execution.
We have now decided to take advantage of this feature to offer you a (slightly late) Christmas gift. We hereby present the first official alternative firmware for Permut8: “beatrick”.
beatrick transforms the Permut8 plug-in into a dedicated beat mangling device.
The “beatrick” firmware is available to download for registered users.
The original Permut8 also includes firmwares.
Also, if you have not found them yet there are other firmwares already included in the original Permut8 installation, most notably a full port of SAM (the original speech synthesizer from the early 80′s). You need to logon to the terminal in the “about box” to use these. This topic contains more info.
Sonic Charge has also announced the release of Microtonic 3.1 beta, the first 64-bit compatible version. It is a closed beta, but serious beta testers can apply at http://beta.soniccharge.com
Sonic Charge has announced the release of its Echobode effect plug-in for Propellerhead Reason.
Echobode is a delay effect with a frequency shifter placed inside the feedback loop.
Echobode is a frequency shifter combined with a delay. The frequency shifter algorithm is inspired by the classic Bode device and it has excellent sideband separation. The delay uses high quality all-pass interpolation and a built-in LFO can be used to modulate the effect.
Echobode is capable of creating many different effects from pure frequency shifting and echoes to phasers, flangers, choruses and more.
Echobode is available from the Propellerhead Shop for the introductory price of $25 USD / 19 EUR until October 31st, 2012 (regular price $39 USD / 32 EUR).
Ghostwave Audio has announced the release of its Organic Manipulations soundset for the Synplant software synthesizer by Sonic Charge.
Organic Manipulations is a collection of 64 original patches for Sonic Charge Synplant.
From otherworldly pads and keys, to sequences, percussions and semi-real instruments like acoustic bass and organ, this set was designed to be instantly usable in your productions, adding a twist only Synplant can add.
If you are looking to bring Synplant to a new level, then this bank may just be your answer.
The soundset is available for the introductory price of 6.90 EUR until September 30th, 2012 (regular price 8.90 EUR). A demo bank with 8 patches is available to download.
Sonic Charge has announced the release of Permut8, an effect plug-in for Windows and Mac that can modulate, manipulate and mangle your audio in countless ways through the combination of some basic but unique building blocks.
The Permut8 user-interface might seem a bit intimidating at first. Make no mistake, this is complex machinery at work, but it is also a product that is designed for experimentation and happy accidents.
Permut8 is an effect plug-in that embraces the sounds of primitive digital signal processing hardware. It is programmable to produce a wide range of effects from traditional delays and flangers to beat-repeaters, bit-crushers and yet unheard of circuit bent madness. At its core is a 12-bit digital delay with variable sample rate from 0 to 352 khz. The delay is controlled by a programmable processor with an assortment of operators, allowing you to create almost any type of effect you can imagine and many more that you can’t. The input and output stages offers virtual analog components for saturation, limiting and filtering. The output can be fed back into the input to create echoes, comb-filter effects and never-ending chaos.
With Permut8 we have made a serious effort to make a plug-in that feels and sounds like a piece of physical digital hardware and not like your typical software effect. Permut8 can make aliasing noises that would make any Commodore 64 green of envy, but its aliasing is different from what you normally encounter in software DSP. For example, it is unrelated to the host sample rate and you can tune it exactly with the “clock frequency” knob. Furthermore, the components that should not alias, e.g. the “analog” saturation, employ heavy-duty anti-aliasing and oversampling techniques to avoid doing so. Permut8 has got just the right dose of hiss, hum, distortion and unpredictability to make it come alive without sacrificing fidelity when you don’t want to.
Introduction to Sonic Charge’s Permut8 effect unit.
Permut8 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $66 USD (+ VAT if applicable).
Sonic Charge has announced it will be releasing its Permut8 effect plug-in this Monday.
Many of you have seen and solved the puzzle we put up earlier (524 to be precise) and you can listen to some examples on our home page right now. Now I think it is about time to do a little introduction.
Permut8 is an effect that can take on many forms. It is one of those products that is hard to describe in a couple of sentences. The kind that a marketing department would hate (luckily we have no marketing department at Sonic Charge). It excels in digital noises of all kinds, but can also sound warm and lush. It can do conventional delay effects and it can create circuit bent mayhem from hell. Perhaps more important than what it does is how it does it. Permut8 gives you a number of primitive operators that you combine in different ways to manipulate the playback position on a delay-line. This runs on an imaginary vintage digital processor with 12-bit A/D D/A conversion and variable clock frequency from 0 to 352kHz. On top of this you will find a number of “analog” components for filtering, limiting, saturation and more.
Did that sound complicated? Permut8 is complicated, but it is also a product that is designed for experimentation and happy accidents, and boy do they happen often. Bring your crash helmet.
Permut8 will be available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) for $66 USD excl. VAT.
