u-he releases Uhbik T & Runciter Rack Extensions + Bundle options

u-he has announced the release of Uhbik T and Runciter, two new Rack Extension effects for Propellerhead Reason.

u-he Uhbik T
Tremolo – but if you think that just means ‘volume wobble’ you haven’t tried the mother of all tremolos yet: Uhbik-T!

Our tremolo unit Uhbik-T is a general-purpose ‘rhythmicizer’ featuring linear or exponential gain modulation. But there’s much more: You can morph between user-defined patterns in the 11 x 16 grid, apply rhythmic lowpass filtering, add vibrato or Haas-delay spatial effects… tremolo redefined!

u-he Runciter
Runciter. Filter with parallel lowpass, bandpass and highpass outputs, resonance, controllable input overdrive and brick-wall fuzz.

Filters were always dramatic sound-shaping tools, one reason why they’re still so popular. But users today expect more than a simple resonant lowpass, so here’s RUNCITER! For classic wah-wah, add low- and highpass together then control cutoff from a MIDI pedal. Or max out the resonance and drive the input from -48db to 48dB for a vast range of effects… instant glittering sweeps or absolute filter mayhem!

Both Rack Extensions are available for the introductory price of $19 USD until June 16th, 2013 (regular $39 USD).

u-he has also launched the creative, modulation, and studio effects bundles, as well as the All of Uhbik bundle comprising all 9 effects in a discounted package.

Boscomac has released Brownknee, an effect ensemble for Native Instruments Reaktor.

Boscomac Brownknee

It is an effect of modulation which includes TREMOLO, VIBRATO and PANOLO. His originality comes because the modulation evolves randomly according to the dynamics of the movement brownien.

let yourself be guided by a rhythm that does not need you …

The ensemble is a free download. Donations are welcome.

Bob Leggitt intros Stomp King effect plugin series

Bob Leggitt of Planet Botch has released five effects in the new Stomp King series of VST plug-ins for Windows.

These are highly individual, but extremely musical freeware devices which have the sonic aura of a classic vintage stomp box range.

Among the first batch are some offbeat and interesting units including an analogue delay, a very cool guitar amp simulator (also brilliant for bass or clonewheel organ), a sophisticated ‘dimension’-style symphonic chorus, a cyclic filter and a standalone vibrato.

The Stomp King effect plug-ins for Windows (VST) are available to download at no cost.

Access Music announces Virus TI OS4.5

Access Music

Access Music has announced OS4.5 for the Virus TI series of synthesizers.

OS4.5 focuses on new vintage effect emulations and additions to the modulation matrix

New in Virus TI OS4.5

  • Vintage Chorus – The new chorus was modeled after one of the nicest and most famous choruses built in the late ’70s. The flexible subset of parameters allows seamless “morphing” from one emulation to another without having to change the algorithm and therefore stop the sound. It’s a great addition to the TI’s sound engine making it really easy to emulate the famous chorus ensemble sound found in many productions back from ’70s and ’80s.
  • Air Chorus – The air chorus is based on creating the Chorus effect in the air, right in between the speakers. In difference to many other chorus effects, it works more subtly and opens the stereo panorama up in a more natural and less intrusive way.
  • Vibrato – Especially when you don’t want to waste an LFO to create a vibrato effect, the new algorithm comes in handy.
  • Rotary speaker emulation – Emulating a classic Leslie effect, the new rotary speaker emulation offers the usual controls such as a fast/slow setting in combination with creative controls such as microphone distance to add air and space to sounds as well as a crossover setting which allows you to limit the effect to a certain frequency range. You can animate the top end of a pad sound and leave the bottom end untouched.
  • New sources have been added to the modulation matrix allowing to add further “analog” feeling to pretty much any parameter available within the over 100 modulation destinations. Access claims that this intelligent and pattern-based unsteadiness enables the Virus TI to cover a wide range of those beloved analog side effects known from slightly damaged or simply poorly engineered vintage synths.

OS4.5 is compatible with the entire Virus TI line including the first versions back from 2005.
