Rob Papen has updated the RP-Distort distortion effect plug-in for Windows and Mac to version 1.0.1.
RP-Distort is not just a distortion unit, but much more. The distortion unit inside RP-Distort can be combined with an analog modelled filter, compressor and widener unit.
These units can be re-order, but also can be turned on or off. So in case you only want a great analog modelled filter… RP-Distort can offer this. Or only the unique widener unit which is great for widening a boring mono track.
Changes in RP-Distort v1.0.1
11 new effect algos: Atan distortion, Clipper 2, FM, Waveshaper, Two Band Cos, Two Band Fuzz, Two Band Limiter, Two Band Overdrive, Two Band Power, Two Band Rectify, Two Band Saturation.
New presets in:
Bank 01 Drum & Percussion 01preset: 035 until 046.
Bank 03 vocal 01presets: 050 until 063.
Fixed problem with edit / original button.
Fixed problem with noise-gate not resetting after long holds.
Other small fixes.
RP-Distort for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/AAX) is available to purchase for 49 EUR inc. VAT.
Sunsine Audio has announced the release of STIX 305, the first in a series of “converted” Beatmaker 2 and Nanostudio versions of Waveshaper drum kits and samples.
The SoundMaster Stix 305 is a very rare analogue drum machine from the early eighties. You get both the cheesy, mellow sound of the psychedelic 70s, plus the acid hats of the 80s !
This WaveShaper sample pack is a quite unique occasion to meet this very little known and lovely beat box. Your tracks will get a great retro sound, whether you are an electronic funk producer, and acid freak or a true analogue sound lover.
The Stix305 was recorded using some tube preamp and compressor and a vintage eq on top of it to keep the analogue vibe on the full recording chain. As the Stix305 features few sounds, I recorded them at various compression, gain and eq settings and made several takes of each sound in order to get some subtle variations that your round-robin soft sampler will love for sure! There are also a dozen of loops plus a more punchy kit, processed using some strong tube distortion.
STIX 305 for iOS features
43 One Hit Samples.
3 Kits (Clean, Alt, Distorted).
3 .bmkz files for Beatmaker 2 .
3 .trg files for Nanostudio.
13 Bonus loops in .wav format.
Easy Installation Instructions.
Note: Requires Beatmaker 2 or Nanostudio, not included.
The converted STIX 305 pack for iOS (Nanostudio and Beatmaker 2) is available to purchase for $2.90 USD. The original wav sample pack is available from Waveshaper.
kiloHearts has released updated its kHs ONE software synthesizer and the Faturator effect plugin for Windows and Mac.
Changes in kHS ONE v1.014
New waveshaper shapes:
Foldback – Similar to the existing saturation shape, this mode saturates the signal but with a slightly warmer character.
BitCrush – This shape adds a sharp, crushed character with plenty of high frequency content.
Minor bug fixes.
Changes in Faturator v1.001
Fixed a problem with parameter display in FL Studio.
Fixed a problem where Faturator would crash if used in conjunction with other plugins using Symbiosis AU/VST (e.g. LFOTool).
Fixed a problem where wrong plugin delay would be reported to Logic, leading to incorrect delay compensation.
Fixed a number of problems with UI updates, leading to better performance and stability.
Made sliders & knobs draggable both horizontally and vertically.
kiloHearts has also announced new free preset pack for kHs ONE.
