ZooZither Off The Beaten Path

ZooZither hits you with 50 smashing presets for SonicCharge’s µTonic drum synth.

In Off The Beaten Path, or OTBP, the focus is on the sound design of the individual kit elements rather than pattern building, though each preset does have a pattern in it.

You can listen to a demo below to get an idea if you are interested in these sounds for your music.

The Off The Beaten Path soundset is available to purchase for $5 USD.

Sonic Charge updates Bitspeek to v1.0.2

Sonic Charge Bitspeek

Sonic Charge has updated Bitspeek, a real-time pitch-excited linear prediction codec effect for Windows and Mac.

We have just uploaded a minor but important upgrade to Bitspeek. It is minor because it brings no new features to the table, but it is important because:

1) It is our first venture into the great wild yonder of 64-bit.

2) It makes Bitspeek compatible with a bunch of hosts that will not play nicely, or not at all with monophonic plug-ins, e.g. GarageBand and Sonar.

To clarify the latter point, Bitspeek 1.0.2 still runs monaural processing under the hood but it is configured for stereo I/O and will simply mix the two input channels and produce identical output for left and right channels. This is an unfortunate necessity in order to improve compatibility.

There is also a slight name change on the Windows DLL from BitspeekVST.dll to Bitspeek.dll.

We have made thorough tests with all major hosts to assure that these changes will not cause any problems when you upgrade, but there are some minor exceptions. Notably, in Reaper you will need to reconfigure the plug-in outputs if you open projects created with Bitspeek 1.0, and in FL Studio you will need to replace the plug-in due to the .dll name change.

Bitspeek for PC and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for $29 USD (+ VAT). The update is a free download for current users.

Sonic Charge updates µTonic to v3.0.1

Sonic Charge MicroTonic

Sonic Charge has released version 3.0.1 of µTonic, a virtual drum and percussion synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.

You can use µTonic as a sound module to play drum sounds from your MIDI keyboard or sequencer, or you can use the built-in pattern engine to play drum patterns in sync with your sequencer. The sound of µTonic is 100% synthetic and rendered in real-time. No samples or pre-rendered waveforms are used.

Changes in µTonic v3.0.1

  • Fixed a problem in the AU version when loading version 2 projects that could make µTonic use the wrong program number.
  • Fixed a problem with clicks in exported audio when using the “Append” tail mode.
  • Fixed a rare timing drift problem between GUI and audio when using certain audio cards.
  • Solved a compatibility problem with the Windows version of Nuendo that froze the application when using copy functions in µTonic.
  • Eliminated some almost inaudible but unwanted aliasing in the sine oscillator.
  • µTonic now displays a special message when attempting to register with a version 1 or 2 key.
  • Code is PPC G4 compatible again (just as version 2 was).
  • Updated scripting engine.

µTonic for Windows and Mac (AU/VST) is available to purchase for $99 USD + VAT.

Sonic Charge has also announced the launch of a community forum, and the release of documentation on the scripting engine, including a zip package containing a few interesting scripts to start off (available from the forum).
