Sunsine Audio has announced the release of Vanishing Point, a dual gain stage silicon transistor fuzz featuring high-quality components and true bypass switching, designed for both traditional and electronic musicians.
The Vanishing Point fuzz is extremely sensitive to your instrument controls including volume, tone, pick-up selection etc. It can deliver both soft clipping (creamy tube-style distortion) as well as hard clipping (square-wave fuzz distortion).
Roll the Shape and Fuzz knobs, or your guitars volume knob back and you will find a slightly distorted and boosted classic overdrive sound, bringing to mind pushed pre-amp tubes. Crank the knobs up and it smears into a velvety chainsaw fuzz, chopping the guitar signal into a squarewave and delivering shades of late-60s nostalgia. Additionally, turning the volume knob up provides enough additional gain to overdrive the first stage of an amp. Stomp the effect off, and you have your original signal, unaffected in any way.
Designed with a very wide frequency response range to accommodate guitars and basses as well as synthesizers, drum machines, vocals, iPads and just about anything else – this pedal does not weaken your bass frequencies. Perfect for rudely smashing up beats or adding some analog grit or bite to any signal.
Manufactured in the USA utilizing high quality parts. Entirely hand drilled, wired and assembled with love, including testing and selecting “matched” transistors to ensure quality and consistency. Each unit is numbered, signed and dated and comes with a One Year Service Warranty on all electronic parts.

Sunsine Audio has introduced Casino 2, a soundset featuring 64 new presets for the Cassini synthesizer app for iOS by iceWorks.
Basses, Leads, Pads, Arpeggiations, Chiptune, Formant and FM patches, and more.
Every preset has the modulation wheel routed as well as all 4 performance modulation knobs assigned to interesting and important aspects of the sound, giving you a high degree of real time control and command over your sound.
Sunsine Audio has announced the release of STIX 305, the first in a series of “converted” Beatmaker 2 and Nanostudio versions of Waveshaper drum kits and samples.
The SoundMaster Stix 305 is a very rare analogue drum machine from the early eighties. You get both the cheesy, mellow sound of the psychedelic 70s, plus the acid hats of the 80s !
This WaveShaper sample pack is a quite unique occasion to meet this very little known and lovely beat box. Your tracks will get a great retro sound, whether you are an electronic funk producer, and acid freak or a true analogue sound lover.
The Stix305 was recorded using some tube preamp and compressor and a vintage eq on top of it to keep the analogue vibe on the full recording chain. As the Stix305 features few sounds, I recorded them at various compression, gain and eq settings and made several takes of each sound in order to get some subtle variations that your round-robin soft sampler will love for sure! There are also a dozen of loops plus a more punchy kit, processed using some strong tube distortion.
STIX 305 for iOS features
43 One Hit Samples.
3 Kits (Clean, Alt, Distorted).
3 .bmkz files for Beatmaker 2 .
3 .trg files for Nanostudio.
13 Bonus loops in .wav format.
Easy Installation Instructions.
Note: Requires Beatmaker 2 or Nanostudio, not included.
The converted STIX 305 pack for iOS (Nanostudio and Beatmaker 2) is available to purchase for $2.90 USD. The original wav sample pack is available from Waveshaper.
Sunsine Audio has announced the release of Generation, a soundset for the PPG Wavegenerator by Wolfgang Palm, featuring 32 presets including 5 basses, 7 leads, 5 keys, 2 arps, 9 pads, and more.
In addition 20 unique wavetables have been included, and exchanging these between presets allows a large degree of tonal variation very easily. Each preset has parameters mapped to both the horizontal and vertical keyboard control for expressive performance opportunities.
32 Presets in 1 .bin file.
20 WaveTables in .wts files.
Full horizontal and vertical key modulation support.
Easy Installation Instructions.
The soundset is available to purchase for $1.49 USD.
Sunsine Audio has launched Impact, a set of 64 new presets for Impaktor, the acclaimed five star drum app from Beepstreet, developer of the venerable Sunrizer.
This pack makes full use of every aspect of both synthesis engines. Physical Modeling is explored through the “Membrane” and “Resonator” sections, Noise Shaping through the “Noise + Vocoder” section, and Frequency Modulation though the FM synthesizer section. Many of the presets contain a combination of these techniques interacting and combining in various ways, including some “tuned” presets that allow playing discreet pitches in a scale depending on the frequency of the impulse. In this manner some presets allow a melody to be played in the style or spirit of a talking drum or steel drum.
The sounds in this set range from classic “ethnic” sound types such as clay or frame, steel, or talking drums, to more traditional electronic sounding drums, and finally futuristic style percussion and drum sounds which may be defined as industrial, alien, or hybrid instruments.
64 Presets (1 .imkit file)
Easy installation instructions.
Compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later.
The soundset is currently on sale for $1.99 USD (regular $2.49 USD).
