Xoxos releases Element free sampler plugin

Related: , , , , Posted in news on Sep 28, 2012 - comment 0 comments

Xoxos has announced the release of Element, a free sampler/sample player instrument for Windows.

Xoxos Element (dark skin)
Xoxos Element sample player with dark skin (click image for light skin).

not really a sampler oc, it’s a wav player, but people often call them samplers..

loads one sample, does some loop modulation stuff, prolly more or less the same as samplers like this (eg. helios). loads 8 and 16 bit mono or stereo wavs.. and not in a fancy way, though it loads all the samples i’ve got. this was produced because i released some open source modules for synthedit to help people develop wav players.. i figured i ought to wrap one as a vst.

Element features

  • Wrap mode looping (‘normal looping’) with crossfade.
  • Bounce mode looping (forward-reverse).
  • Two crossfade modes: fixed time (up to 1s) or loop relative (up to entire length of loop).
  • 4 interpolation modes: floor (‘none’), linear, cubic and hermite.
  • Emulated downsampling.
  • Loop position can modulate filter cutoff.
  • Filter modes (low, band, high, cut, peak in moog, svf or biquad).
  • Curveable envelopes.
  • Modulating start/end (loop or otherwise) reverses playback if end is lower than start.
  • 8 voices poly.

The plug-in is available to download at no cost at http://www.xoxos.net/vst/element.zip (Windows VST).

xoxos Spring2

xoxos has released Spring2, a spring reverb emulation effect plug-in for Windows.

Spring2 uses conventional signal processing techniques to model the well-known spring reverb effect. While significantly more CPU power would be required to achieve closer emulation using this method, especially to model the dispersive characteristics more accurately, this version is intended as a compromise between what is possible and what is sensible, and the impulse response of this effect is generally similar to that of a physical spring.

Spring2 allows the length and dispersive frequency of up to three springs to be configured and includes a non-linearity to model the amplification transformer.

Spring2 is available to purchase as a VST effect plugin for Windows, priced at $10 USD.
