sonicLAB has announced the release of CosmosƒFx, the effects plugin version of Cosmosƒ vSaturn.
CosmosƒFx offers three different live input handling methods. – The direct input mode; delivering the live input directly to the micro events. – The circular buffer sampling mode; recording the input into a circular buffer which can be read with different buffer lengths for each micro event. – The additive synthesis sample mode; assigns the circular buffer data to 12 partial additive synthesis engine of Cosmosƒ.
CosmosƒFx comes free bundled only with a purchase of vSaturn, which is $230 USD.
sonicLAB has announced the release of Cosmosƒ vSaturn, a tool made for computer music and sound design.
Cosmosƒ “Sieves” engine processes the stochastic output of the plugin by filtering and mapping the incoming data according to the scales defined by the “sieve” process. A number of known musical scales come already defined, and two custom ones can be defined by the user. These scales can be divided to micro tonal relations ranging in 6 – 96 tone scales, where the infinity is the raw output of Cosmosƒ.
Many micro event and meso event synthesis parameters including “pitch”, “amplitude”, “filter cutoff“, “grain playback rate” and “ring mod frequency” can be sieved pre or post to modulation generators of Cosmosƒ in realtime with audio rate precision. Parametric transition between raw Cosmosƒ output and sieved output serves as a continuos morph between the two states. A unique visualiser exhibits the process of “Sieves”.
vSaturn also offers a clever MIDI response to perform on with the “sieves” on Cosmosƒ micro events. Single notes or chords can be performed on MIDI devices to control the micro event pitch relationship inside the relevant meso events. Also there is an audio precision arpeggiator with stochastic features implemented in vSaturn.
Cosmosƒ vSaturn features
vSaturn offers a clever MIDI response to perform on Cosmosƒ micro events engine.
Single notes or chords can be performed on MIDI to control the micro event pitch relationship inside the relevant meso events.
Including an audio precision arpeggiator with stochastic features with great sonic potential.
Tempo sync switch to capture the host tempo and apply to macro cell length.
Cosmosƒ vSaturn for Windows and Mac (64-bit VST/AU) is available for purchase for $230 USD.
sonicLAB has announced the release of Cosmosƒ Plugin V1, offering its stochastic synthesizer in native plug-in formats for for Mac and Windows.
After its introduction in 2012, the most advanced stochastic synthesizer finally meets today the AU/VST plugin format. Cosmosƒ offers tremendous possibilities within a DAW environment and we are happy to present this achievement to you.
While there is an upgrade offer for the registered Cosmosƒ users, there is also an educational discount for new users.
Cosmosƒ Plugin V1 features
All the features of Cosmosƒ V2.2.
Full automation capability inside any DAW.
Multiple instances of Cosmosƒ each with unique OSC port number.
Multiple preset bank handling.
Independent quantization settings for each universe.
Cosmosƒ Plugin V1 is available to purchase for $205 USD ($130 USD for student version). A lite version with limited features is $115 USD. Existing users of Cosmosf V2.2 can upgrade to the plugin version (PRO only) for $50 USD.
sonicLAB has announced version 2.2 of Cosmosƒ, a real-time dynamic stochastic synthesis engine.
newest update: Cosmosƒ V2.2 offers a powerful and unique preset morphing mechanism. With 2D / 3D control interface + homogeneous and heterogeneous micro waveform handling, it “rethinks” for you what you know as “morphing”…
A sonic morphing process defines a metaphor of exploring the sonic shape and timbral evolution on intermediate levels. Cosmosƒ V2.2 gives the possibility to manipulate its composants responsable for its bottom-up sonic construction within necessary correspondance, precision and smoothness.
Cosmosƒ advanced stochastic synthesizer.
Changes in Cosmosƒ v2.2
2D / 3D preset morphing mechanism. Up to 4 different preset parameter space can be morphed by traveling inside a 3D sphere by adjusting the polar coordinates within a unique interface design.
Stochastic morphing with distribution range for altering the morphing position, speed and interpolation control.
Built-in mathematical functions to automatically and precisely move the morphing pointer in the space.
Precise audio rate parameter update with the possibility of reaching amazing morphing speeds (44100times a second!)
turns Cosmosƒ into a super oscillator by accumulating up to 4 different presets in heterogeneous micro event mixing mode prior to the morphing phase.
Cosmosƒ for Windows and Mac is available to purchase for 89 EUR.
sonicLAB has released version 2.1 of the Cosmosƒ, a stochastic synthesis tool for Windows and Mac.
Cosmosƒ, an advanced stochastic synthesizer offering elegant sound design possibilities with precision and real time operations, suggesting a new paradigm in sound synthesis while extending its polyphonic structure.
Cosmosƒ 2.1 comes with new LFO waveforms.
Changes in Cosmosƒ v2.1
Wide range of new LFO waveforms from harmonic oscillators to different types of stochastic waveforms, all with pristine quality of audio results.
The sample playback engine allows backwards or randomly directed sample playback
The presets engine is rewritten and allows text based handling.
Many tiny improvements on the user interface for better handling of the sofware.
Cosmosƒ V2.1 audio routines are solid and stable, to run safely your installation days long.
Cosmosƒ is available to purchase for Windows and Mac, priced at 89 EUR.
