The Lower Rhythm Explor3r Extended

The Lower Rhythm has released Explor3r Extended, a virtual monosynth instrument plug-in for Windows.

Based on the synthesizer behind our 2009 KVR Audio Developer’s Challenge entry, Explor3r Extended is a three oscillator monosynth with channel-dedicated amplitude envelopes, lowpass filters and LFOs — all glued together with a matrix that allows both phase modulation and sync inputs on each oscillator to be fed by the output of any other oscillator (including itself).

After the main channels are done producing their sound, it is fed into various texturizing pathways that offer everything from ‘tube’ saturation to a noise channel w/high cut, ring mod, global filtering & delay. Although absolutely designed to perform as an analog-style monosynth, we’ve also included the option to switch into a three-voice poly mode for those of you with a bit more CPU headroom.

Explor3r Extended can create anything from fat, complex leads to buzzy basses, droning sound effects, sweeping pads and terrible, screeching chaos.

Explor3r Extended features

  • 3 oscillators with dedicated envelopes, filters, tuning and LFOs.
  • Phase mod and sync matrix, allowing any osc to feed any other osc.
  • Global texturizing including delay, noise, ‘tube’ saturation, ringmod and filtering.
  • Rooted in monosynth design, but includes the option to switch to a 3-voice poly mode.
  • 35 presets, ranging from basses to leads, pads to sound effects.

Explor3r Extended is available as a VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC, priced at $11.99 USD.

The Lower Rhythm Grotto

The Lower Rhythm has announced the release of Grotto, a stereo reverb / delay hybrid that focuses on producing lush, cave-like environments — either as enhancements to your source signal or as a sculpting tool for creating droning ambiences.

At it’s core, Grotto’s wet channel is driven by emulated tubes that fill your reverb out with rich harmonics before passing the signal along into a fat lowpass filter. On the side, a delay scoops up signal from either the clean or wet path and then seamlessly reenters the signal chain. Next, simply mix and match your channels with a master, clean and wet volume knob.

In addition to Grotto’s core features, we left it’s spine exposed, allowing you to alter parameters of the reverb algorithm itself. This paves the way for a huge, custom reverb that you can tailor to fit whatever you send through it.

Grotto features

  • Emulated tube-driven stereo reverb.
  • Host tempo-synced stereo delay w/ individual left / right parameters.
  • Choose from wet or dry signal for delay.
  • 8 alterable time parameters that shape the reverb.
  • Fat biquad/butterworth lowpass filter.
  • Individual level controls for clean / wet channels & master volume.

Grotto is available as a VST effect plug-in for Windows PC, priced at $9.50 USD.

The Lower Rhythm D15/2

The Lower Rhythm has released version 1.5 of D15/2, a virtual drum synthesizer plug-in for Windows.

The D15/2 is a stereo virtual analog drum module (no samples!). It follows standard trigger placement and is fully tunable — this means that you can alter nearly every possible parameter that defines how the drum voices sound.

With a total of 16 voices (including two kick paths), global and bass drum dedicated bit crushers (one of each), two mixed output channels including a tube emulation with pre / post gain as well as a master reverb, the D15/2 lends an uncommon level of control and variation to the analog drum concept.

Changes in D15/2 v1.5

  • New GUI design.
  • Redesigned amplifier for much better mixing control.
  • Fixed volume bug.
  • Streamlined internal routing.
  • Improvements to bit crusher resolution.

D15/2 is available as a VST instrument plug-in for Windows PC, priced at $11.99 USD.

  • Full stereo.
  • 12dB/oct. lowpass filter.
  • Optional tube saturation.
  • Clean out.
  • Additional modulation effect.

Dusk Filter is available as a VST effect plug-in for Windows PC for $5.99 USD.
