synthgeek Lunettik series - SR1

synthgeek has released the Lunettik series, a collection of small noisemaking devices inspired by Lunettas.

In a nutshell, Lunettas are simple circuits, often based on CMOS logic chips. To quote mosc from the electro-music forums, “These machines are named after Stanley Lunetta of Sacramento, California… Lunettas are very simple, digital, noisy, quirky, and lots of fun.”

Note that these are not meant as emulations of any specific circuit, they are just inspired by the concept. Like the circuits which inspired them, they don’t necessarily do things “right”, but they generate interesting sounds. If you like noisy, droney, and/or buzzy stuff based on square waves, check ‘em out. The first pack includes three simple generators: SR1, OR1, and BC1, which are named after the logic functions used in their design (Shift Register, OR gate, and Binary Counter).

The Lunettik series plug-ins are available as a free download for Windows PC (VST).

Synthgeek releases sg-modutron mini

Synthgeek sg-modutron mini

Synthgeek has released sg-modutron mini, a free synthesizer instrument for Windows.

This is a simple 1-oscillator synth based on “virtual circuit-bending”. The initial idea started out as an attempt at making a bass synth version of the APC synth. It turned out to be impossible to get it to track pitch at all, so more experimentation ensued, and this is the result. It does track pitch, but often sounds will change across the keyboard or possibly even stop making sound at a certain key.

Some of the ideas used here will doubtless be put to use in a larger multi-osc synth, though whether an expanded version of this exact synth will be developed remains to be seen.

sg-modutron mini is available to download as a freeware VST instrument for Windows PC.

There are times when I want a reverb for its smearing, tail-producing qualities, but a regular reverb isn’t ugly enough. This was created to solve that problem.

It sounds just like the name implies, and sometimes that’s just what the situation calls for.

synthgeek sg-freakshift

synthgeek has released sg-freakshift, a free VST effect plug-in for Windows.

This is a not-quite-technically-correct stereo frequency shifter (with separate controls for the left & right channels) based on techniques seen on this web page: http://www.cim.mcgill.ca/~clark/nordmodularbook/nm_spectrum_shift.html

The reason for this not being technically correct is that doing this the right way would require a lot more CPU. This implementation only achieves true frequency shifting in a certain range of frequencies, while frequencies outside of this range get an effect closer to ring modulation, which is still interesting.

There is also a simple distortion effect and LFOs for modulation.

sg-freakshift is available to download as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.
