Changes in Le Masque Delay v1.5

  • New FREEZE/DUB button: When this function is engaged, it will read the “loop” of the delay until disengaged. It can be used to generate loops and textures, and allows the user to keep playing and improvising over the loop.
  • LOCK DRY/WET LEVEL Button: The user can now browse all presets while preserving the Dry/Wet level ratio.
  • There are now 16 Masks instead of 8.
  • MultiMasks selections: The user can now select several Masks with a combination of different techniques, and move their locations, or change all their locators with a single mouse drag. There are three buttons to select ALL MASKS, ODD MASKS, or EVEN MASKS. Or the combination CTRL + CLICK to select continuous or discontinuous Masks. Mousing over a mask will now select it automatically. Background color and shape changes will reflect the status of each Mask (Selected, Unselected).
  • Display of the incoming audio signal inside the Grid Area: This feature is designed to improve workflow, speed of use, and to help the user with positioning the Masks.
  • Revamped management of the Masks locators:
    • New Level Toggle for the Masks Level Parameter: When this button is on, the delay signal will only be heard if the incoming level is over the Mask Level. It acts like a threshold parameter for playing and experimenting Live, or to find the best Masks configuration while moving them on the grid.
    • New Zoom Function: Zoom x4 the grid area for accurate editing of the position and length of the masks.
    • New Presets & video tutorials (see below): around 50 new presets have been added for a total of over 120. Presets include Slap Back Delays, PingPong Delays, Resonators, Pseudo Spring Reverb delays, et etc.
  • Windows: With certain combinations of Daws/Systems, the GUI could become sluggish. Now fixed.
  • Windows 7 RTAS: now installing correctly.
  • RTAS version: now always in sync with all Pro Tools versions and decimal tempo is now working.

Le Masque: Delay is available at a 25% discount until February 20th, 2013, priced at 44 EUR / $58 USD (regular 59 EUR / $77 USD). The update is free for all previous owners.

XILS-lab intros LX122 rotating speaker cabinet plugin

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 05, 2012 - comment 0 comments

XILS-lab has introduced LX122, an emulation of the the Leslie rotating speaker.

XILS-lab LX122
XILS-lab’s LX122 offers a rotating speaker emulation with treble output in a rotating horn, and bass output in a rotating drum.

Although there is a lot a various models, the classic Leslie speaker consists of two driver units – a stationary treble unit with spinning horns (called Horn here), and a stationary woofer and spinning rotor (called Drum here), with two filters, which divide the frequency spectrum between the horn and the woofer.

Both the horns and a sound baffle for the bass are rotated to create Doppler effect based vibrato, tremolo and chorus effects. The rotating elements can be stopped, switched between slow (chorale) and fast (tremolo), or transitioned between the two settings. Not only the unit gives this particular effect, but also the ensemble it creates with the room where it is located.

The LX122 emulates the Horn and the Drum, as well as the room where various coherent reflections are occurring when they are rotating. It also emulates the tube base amplifier as well as the intrinsic characteristics of the Drum (woofer response and drum size) or the Horn (Tweeter response, horn size and diffusers).

The internal cabinet refexions, which give this known mellow specific sound, are also taken into account but with the never done possibility to increase or decrease their effects, going from a standard closed cabinet to a opened air rotating speakers.

The LX122 is the indipensable companion for your keyboards and organ , but if you like to tweak parameters, if you want to build your own cabinet, change its characteristics, if you want to experiment further in recording this device, using two independant microphones in various rooms, then go to the LX122 Premium, you won’t be despointed. A wide range of stereo effects, space feeling, pitch modifications are straight to your hands.

LX122 and LX122 Premium are available to purchase for the introductory price of 29 EUR / $37 USD (LX122) and 45 EUR / $58 USD (LX122 Premium) until December 5th, 2012. The plug-ins are serial number-protected products — no iLok required.
