SoundToys has announced the release of Little MicroShift, a micro pitch-shifting effect plugin for Windows and Mac.
Little MicroShift adds massive width, enormous depth, and huge thickness to vocals, guitars, synths, etc.
Little MicroShift™ is three classic versions of the widening/spacial effect of micro pitch-shifting in one super easy to use plug-in, and it’s totally free (for a limited time).
Plus by sharing with your friends, you also get a chance to win a classic piece of gear that featured some of the early classic micro pitch-shifting sounds that inspired this plug-in: An original Eventide H3000 D/SE autographed by two of the original designers (that just so happen to work at SoundToys).
The top runners up will also get prizes like free SoundToys bundles, plug-ins, free upgrades to MicroShift™, and cool SoundToys swag.
The Little MicroShift is a free to download for those with a code until March 29th, 2013.
SoundToys has introduced Radiator, a dual drive tube input channel and EQ, based on the classic Altec 1567A tube mixer from the 1960s.
SoundToys Radiator Altec tube mixer amp plugin.
The original Altec 1567A hardware was a rack-mounted five-input tube mixer with removable transformers, a simple two-knob EQ, an unmistakable green faceplate, and a whopping 97 dB of gain.
The sound, by today’s standards, is colored and gritty, with a heaping helping of good old fashion hardware noise. In its day, it was used on many early Motown hits, and found its way into the PA racks of countless churches and school auditoriums across the USA.
Radiator brings the classic Altec tube sound to desktop recording rigs, capturing the distinctive warmth and punch of the original hardware. Featuring the modeled bass and treble tone controls from the original unit, a mix control for easy parallel processing, and the saturation and harmonic effects of the original hardware’s input and output amplifiers. All of these different circuit elements interact, allowing a wide range of tones to be created with just a few simple knobs. Plus we let you decide if the original noise is on or off.
Radiator for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AudioSuite) is available to purchase for $129 USD. Users of Little Radiator can upgrade to Radiator for only $49 USD until January 3rd, 2013 (regular upgrade is $89 USD).

We’ve just released version 4.1.6, which is a free update for all customers who currently own V4 versions of our plug-ins and bundles. This update also applies to Devil-Loc and Devil-Loc Deluxe (version 1.x). This update fixes many issues and is recommended for all customers.

Changes in SoundToys v4.1.6
Fixed issue opening old sessions in Ableton Live.
Fixed issue causing “min shift alerts” occurring in EchoBoy.
Key hits now go to host if not required by the plug-in. Sonar still blocks them.
Fixed issue where key hits caused graphic problems in Cubase.
Fixed issue causing double key hits in Ableton Live Mac VST.
Simulated analog noise improved in FilterFreak.
Other system reliability bugs fixed.
Note: The update introduces a bug for EchoBoy (distorted audio), which appears to only happen at higher sample rates. Users working at sample rates above 48 kHz should remain at the v4.1.5 release.
SoundToys has also announced that 64-bit support for Windows and Mac is in development. The update will be free to current V4 users.
