Devoloop releases DynaRage for Reason

Devoloop has released DynaRage, a tube compressor Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason.

Devoloop DynaRage

DynaRage is our state-of-the-art Dynamics Compression+Tube Distortion module, made exclusively for Reason.

We think that just releasing another Compressor, when there is a chaos of many other Compressors all around here, would have been a shame and a loss of time. So we coded a flawless algorithm, implemented as many controls as a today producer/sound engineer needs, and added a Tube Distortion non-linear emulation algorithm, with a Tube Valve glowing according to the amount of distortion applied to the sound. Pack this with 2 accurate and vintage-ish VU-Meter, and you are done.

DynaRage features

  • Sensitivity for Sidechain Detector.
  • Fully Adjustable Attack and Release.
  • Compression Ratio between 1:1 and 20:1 (fixed to infinite:1 when in Limit Mode).
  • Soft/Hard Knee selector.
  • Compressor/Limiter mode.
  • Sidechain Input (with Key Listen option).
  • Tube Distortion real linear and non-linear processing (with Tube glowing).
  • Left and Right Channels Gain Reduction Vintage VU-Meters.
  • Gain Reduction CV Output.
  • Low CPU Mode.

DynaRage is available for purchase for the introductory price of $29 USD/25 EUR until May 16th, 2014.

Nebula programs

Lars Rüetschi aka TheSessionGuitarist has announced the release of Grooving Tubing, a new tube guitar amp library featuring 17 programs for Acustica Audio’s Nebula.

This virtual amp doesn’t feel and sound like playing just an amp simulation. It feels and sounds like playing through a real amp reacting on your dynamic playing. Close your eyes and you feel the air between the microphones and your cabinet!

The amp was sampled with high quality Sommer Cables, the king of amp recording microphones: The Sennheiser e906 and the full and rich sounding Audio Technica 4050 as a spot microphone. Each of them sounds fantastic on its own. Copy your guitar track, mix and pan the 2 microphones and you’ll have a full, wide stereo guitar sound, larger than life!

Blamsoft releases t00b Distortion for Reason

Blamsoft has released t00b Distortion, a new Rack Extension for Propellerhead Reason.

Blamsoft t00b Distortion

t00b Distortion contains industrial strength circuit simulation technology used to simulate a popular triode preamp stage. When overdriven, this circuit gives a classic warm tube distortion sound. This isn’t your common black box approximation algorithm, this is real voltages and currents in a circuit simulation with the most accurate tube model available.

Hear the subtle difference of swapping out the tube model. Four models are included. Adjust the tone with a circuit modeled tone stack from the Marshall JCM800 series. Distortion generates high frequencies so a bass boost is available for quick eq compensation. On the back, you have CV inputs available for the knobs and a Quality switch to control the CPU usage. Everything you need to get the tube sound in your mix.

The t00b Distortion is available from the Propellerhead Shop for 32 EUR.
