Xhun Audio has released version 2.8 of LittleOne, a virtual analog synthesizer instrument for Windows.

Xhun Audio LittleOne

Version 2.8 features important improvements for the Analogue Components Behaviour Engine, the Envelope Generators accuracy and bringing a massive low level code replacement on the DSP side: LittleOne code is now 90% cross-platform.

Changes in LittleOne v2.8

  • Analogue Components Behaviour Engine updated to version 3.0: the improved simulation of analogue technology micro-instability and imperfections for all components (Oscillators, Filters, LFOs, …) brings a much more natural and authentic analogue response, sound and feel.
  • Envelope Generators for both the Filter (VCF) and the Amplifier (VCA) sections have been rewritten from the ground on, featuring a 100% accurate exponential curve response as found in the original hardware.
  • Massive low level code replacement on the DSP side: LittleOne code is now 90% cross-platform.
  • All Presets and Banks have been re-adjusted (or in some cases re-designed) for taking advance of the new accurate Envelope Generators responses.
  • Some fixes and enhancements on the GUI side.
  • To match the full compatibility with this update, the Big Steps soundbank (sold separately) has been updated too.

LittleOne for Windows (VST) is available for purchase for 45 EUR. LittleOne version 2.8 is a free update for all registered users.

Xhun Audio IronAxe

Xhun Audio has released version 1.7 of its IronAxe guitar plugin, bringing a wide range of improvements, introducing several features and bug fixes.

This is one of the most important IronAxe updates ever, because it brings an improved String Behaviour Engine, it introduced the StringsToucher Engine (known as ‘PurpleKeys Engine’ in the dev stage), and many improvements and fixes that some users asked in the passed months.

Changes in IronAxe v1.7

  • The String Behaviour Engine has been updated to version 2.0, improving realism and physics accuracy when simulating strings’ geometry and energy dispersion over time.
  • The KeyStrummer Engine/Mode has been sensibly extended and its name has been changed to KeyPerformer Engine/Mode.
  • Introducing the StringsToucher Engine (formerly known as ‘Project PurpleKeys’, accessible through the KeyPerformer Mode): play/touch each of the 6 virtual Electric Guitar strings individually and in true real-time, for true-to-life arpeggios using only a standard MIDI Keyboard.
  • The MIDI Data paths/routings have been partially redesigned, improving performances and stability for all IronAxe’s internal MIDI Engines.
  • Full MIDI Assignments for all GUI Parameters and Controls. Everything is now visible in the DAW Host/s for an easy and quick access using external MIDI hardware controllers.
  • The Finger Sliding Techniques have been extended also to the QuickStrums Engine (MIDI Keyboard controller Mode) and to the KeyPerformer Engine/Mode (including StringsToucher Engine), improving realism when performing real-time strums, arpeggios and articulations.
  • The Room Simulation Engine has been updated, allowing real-time modulation.
  • Factory presets have been slightly adjusted/updated.
  • Minor improvements on the DSP and GUI side.
  • Partial low level code replacement on the DSP side.

Xhun Audio has also launched a Summer sale, offering up to 33% discount on all its products and bundles.

Changes in IronAxe v1.6.1

  • Partial low level code replacement on the DSP side.

IronAxe for Windows (VST) is available to purchase for 99 EUR.
