The Lower Rhythm releases Basilisk effect plugin

The Lower Rhythm has announced the release of Basilisk, a multiband univibe effect plugin for Windows.

The Lower Rhythm Basilisk

Basilisk is a full stereo, two channel multiband ‘vibe’ style effect geared towards electric piano, strings, pads and guitars. The wet channel passes your signal through a 9-Band Equalizer, each band being modulated at an independently set rate with an adjustable waveform (4 choices). In addition, each band has a knob for adjusting the bandwidth for its dedicated center frequency. Next, your signal is fed into a stereo chorus effect (5 selectable waveforms) capable of everything from smooth flange to a glitchy blitter — and for those more ‘crusty’ moods, a very fat lowpass filter is right there in order to trim off some of the highs.

All that’s left is to mix and match your wet and dry signals with two independent volume knobs in order to find that perfect blend.

Basilisk features

  • Fully stereo.
  • Four master waveform choices.
  • 9 bands of frequency divided ‘vibe’.
  • Bandwidth / Rate controls for each band.
  • Utilizes phasing for smoother effect.
  • Chorus effect with five selectable waveforms.
  • Fat, Moog style master lowpass filter.
  • Independent Wet / Dry signal volume controls.

Basilisk is available to purchase as a VST effect plug-in for Windows PC, priced at $19.99 USD.

The Lower Rhythm Satyr

The Lower Rhythm has announced the release of Satyr, a virtual synthesizer instrument for Windows.

Simply put, Satyr is a unique sounding experimental synthesizer that is based around the idea of using your MIDI pitch signals to modulate two Moog-style filters as white noise is crammed through them. Each of these filters offer you up seven different resonance settings that will alter the overall sound differently based on which arrangement they’re in. Throw in optional channels of tube-style saturated drive and ring modulation, with fat global lowpass filtering AND yet another variable white / pink noise blend and you have… well, with this one we’re just going to say: try it and find out.

Satyr features

  • Twin noise oscillators ‘pinched’ through Moog style LP filters.
  • Seven different resonance settings for each oscillator.
  • Global amplitude envelope and LP filter.
  • Variable tube-emulated drive/saturation.
  • Variable ringmod.
  • Additional white/pink noise oscillator array for texture and ‘air’.

Satyr for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for $18.99 USD.

The Lower Rhythm releases The Corruption Kit, drums sample pack

The Lower Rhythm The Corruption Kit

The Lower Rhythm has announced the release of The Corruption Kit, collection of 112 samples taken directly from the kit of Evan Munger, drummer of the Orlando band Cure the Corrupt.

This is a pissed off sounding sample set, reflecting the fast pace and almost violent playing style Evan brings to the table.

Mic’d with a pair of AT4041′s on overheads, an array of Audix mics (D6, D4, D2) and the classic choice of SM57′s on the snare, this kit lends itself rather well to aggressive music.

Two folders are included: clean and dirty — dirty being a version of the samples processed with our Rhinoceros VST effect.

The Corruption Kit is available to purchase for $19.99 USD.

The Lower Rhythm Noizdumpster

The Lower Rhythm has released Noizdumpster, a virtual synthesizer instrument for Windows.

Noizdumpster is adept at creating glitchy, pulsating and looping, siren-like drones. It functions via two operators, each with a chain of three oscillators and two delay units that affect the way the MIDI pitch signal is modulated. In addition, each of the two operators have six toggle switches that connect different parts of the operator together in order to produce relatively unexpected results. Top it all off with a global low pass filter and a completely variable bit crusher.

Noizdumpster features

  • Six oscillators
  • Four delay units
  • Variable (non-stepped) bit crusher
  • Global lowpass filter
  • Internal rerouting toggles

Noizdumpster is available to purchase as a VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC for $12.99 USD.

The Lower Rhythm Signals 2, virtual synthesizer updated

The Lower Rhythm Signals 2

The Lower Rhythm has announced the release of Signals 2, an update to the virtual synthesizer instrument for Windows.

Intended to create incredibly intricate and lush pad sounds, Signals utilizes four oscillators (each with their own signal path) in conjunction with two powerful LFOs (30 possible destinations, 5 waveforms) and an LFO-modulated global delay with filter cutoff. Each oscillator has its own waveform selector (5 shapes), tuning control, lowpass filter, modulation depth control and volume envelope. If you’re looking for a synth that can effortlessly mix warm, analog pads with celestial modulation or grinding glitch *and* switch into mono mode to use the same tone-shaping tools to meet another end, look no further.

Changes in Signals 2

  • 10 brand new presets as well as the original 20 re-envisioned.
  • Streamlined sound engine for improved CPU and functionality.
  • Cutoff filter for the global delay.
  • LFO destinations refined and now labeled.
  • Mono mode added.
  • Improved interface.

Signals 2 is available to purchase as a VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC for $19.99 USD. A fully functional and unlimited demo version can be downloaded from The Lower Rhythm.

The Lower Rhythm Culture Kit & Swagger Kit, drum sample packs

The Lower Rhythm Culture Kit & Swagger Kit

The Lower Rhythm has released the Culture Kit and the Swagger Kit, two sample packs featuring drums.

The Culture Kit features 138 samples taken directly from the kit of Brian Stabile, drummer of the prominent Orlando two-piece group Yogurt Smoothness. Featuring classic mic choices (beta52a on kick, md421′s on toms), this is a brash but natural kit stained deeply with the feeling of the performance.

The Swagger Kit is composed of 66 samples from the Pearl Custom X-treme drum kit played by Arkie Jay (drummer of Orlando’s Alias Punch). With an AKG 414 / Shure Beta 52a combo on a large 32″ kick, SM57′s on snare and an AT4041 pair on overheads, the swagger kit is rock solid and quirky — all you’d expect from a small, but tight rock drum set.

Culture Kit & Swagger Kit features

  • 24bit/44.1kHz WAV.
  • Both Dry and Dirty (processed) sets of samples for more choices when building a kit.
  • Recorded and mastered with professional equipment at Urthwurk Labs in Orlando, FL.
  • Easy to learn, proprietary file naming syntax system that includes all important info. about a sample in its file name.

The Culture Kit is available to purchase for $19.99 USD, the Swagger Kit is $16.99 USD.
