SoundFonts.it releases ZD6 – Die Funky Maschine

SoundFonts.it ZD6

SoundFonts.it has released ZD6 – Die Funky Maschine, a physical modeling simulation of a vintage “D6″ stringed electric piano.

It was back in the fifties when German inventor Ernst Zacharias invented one of the funkiest keyboards of all times. At first the intention was to make a portable version of a cembalo, but it soon turned into one of the most used keyboards in rock and pop music. You will certainly recognize it in the famous pop song “Superstition”, and in many other funky tunes of the seventies. Many police and investigation story movies and TV shows of the 70′s and the early 80′s had music themes based on funky accompaniments made with the D6, a slap bass and drums. This instrument can reproduce the sound of an electric guitar and can be treated with the same effects used by guitarists (wahwah, distortion, phaser, chorus, etc.) for both rhythmic and melodic textures, since it is actually based on a set of 60 strings and two humbucker pickups very similar to those used in electric guitars.

ZD6 – Die Funky Maschine features

  • Full Polyphony (60 notes).
  • Sympathetic resonances.
  • Realistic response to keyboard dynamics and aftertouch.
  • Octave transpose (1 oct. up, 1 oct. down).
  • Adjustable global tuning.
  • Four dynamic curves available.
  • Realistic control panel with switches for active EQ and pickup selection.
  • Adjustable damper level and instrument volume.
  • Wah-Wah effect modeled after the famous JH-1 american Wah pedal.
  • Manual wah, LFO wah, auto-wah.
  • Distortion effect.
  • Eight-stage Phaser effect.
  • On-screen help tips and readout values.
  • Very low memory and CPU power needed.
  • Easy MIDI-Learn feature.
  • FX version included.

ZD6 is available as a VST plug-in for Windows PC and has an introductory price of 39 EUR until 30 September 2008 (regular price is 49 EUR). A demo version can be downloaded from the product page.

SoundFonts.it Type4

SoundFonts.it has released Type4, a simulation of a vintage “Type4″ spring reverb unit.

Why should you want to use a spring reverb rather than a precise and modern digital reverb? Spring reverbs have typical sonic characteristics that, nowadays, make them desirable mostly as effects on their own rather than simulations of an acoustic phenomena.

Type4 features

  • Four virtual springs with variable tension.
  • Variable decay length.
  • Variable dampening factor.
  • Adjustable pre and post filtering.
  • Adjustable timbre.
  • Very low memory and CPU power needed.
  • Easy MIDI-Learn feature.

SoundFonts.it Type4 is available as a VST plug-in for Windows PC for an introductory price of 14 EUR until September 30, 2008 (regular price is 19 EUR). A demo version is available for download.

MidiKarval releases VB3 Controller

MidiKarval VB3 Controller

MidiKarval has released VB3 Controller, a midi processor for controlling SoundFonts.it’s VB3 synth.

VB3 Controller features

  • Controller: control the VB3’s five drawbar sets (upper manual A and B sets, lower manual A and B sets, and pedals) from a single set of nine physical drawbars (sliders or knobs) using a midi controller keyboard.
  • Inverted Keys: on the original tonewheel organ that VB3 emulates, the bottom octave notes have reverse color keys (“inverted keys”) that call up preset sounds. VB3 and separately VB3 Controller mimics this use of note keys to provide the player with presets.
  • Alternative Presets: provide 6 banks (2 banks in the demo version) of 18 presets each (9 for the upper manual drawbars and 9 for the lower manual drawbars). Each preset can be called up by pressing one of the keys (C# to A keys) of your midi keyboard(s) “inverted octave” and shows the relevant drawbar positions on VB3, plus you can also temporarily change these preset drawbar settings. (The bottom C key is cancel sound or mute).
  • Split Mode: reserve the bottom two octaves of your 5 octaves midi keyboard(s) for playing the VB3 pedalboard.
  • Programs Section: store your favourite VB3 Controller’s settings in one of the 10 re-namable programs for future use.

VB3 Controller is available as a VST instrument for Windows PC and costs 10 EUR. A fully functional demo is available for download (15 minute limit per session).
