Ashun Sound Machines (ASM) announce Hydrasynth wave morphing synthesizer

Posted: 16-Sep-19


Newly-formed music hardware company Ashun Sound Machines (ASM) is proud to announce (upcoming) availability of Hydrasynth — a wave morphing synthesizer representing its inaugural hardware product, produced
as a keyboard version (featuring an ASM Polytouch™ 49-note polyphonic aftertouch keyboard and a user-assignable ribbon controller) and desktop version (with 24 velocity- and polyphonic aftertouch-sensitive pads, plus
an included 19-inch rack-mount kit) — as of September 3…

Hydrasynth itself is an eight-voice, three-oscillator synthesizer anchored around a unique wave morphing synthesis engine. OSC 1, OSC 2, and OSC 3 can all make use of any one of the 219 single-cycle waveforms
available, while Wave Scan mode (for OSC 1 and OSC 2 only) flexibly facilitates defining eight waveforms into a list and then morphing from one to the next using modulation sources.

Said synthesis engine also features four mutators, allowing for further tonal modification. MUTANT 1, MUTANT 2, MUTANT 3, and MUTANT 4 have an ability to perform complex FM (Frequency Modulation) synthesis;
each include three different types of pulse width modifiers, hard sync, harmonic sweep, and a Wavestack™ function that generates five detuned copies of the incoming waves for super-dense sounds. Furthermore, flexible
routings within the mutators make available (almost) unlimited options for tweaking, twisting, and turning sounds inside out.

On top of that, the synthesis engine also contains two filters that can be configured in parallel or series. FILTER 1 features 11 filter models spanning new and classic filter modes, while FILTER 2 is a continuously-variable
multimode affair.

As modulation sources add much-needed movement into a synthesized sound, Hydrasynth far from disappoints in that regard with five envelope generators — ENV 1, ENV 2, ENV 3, ENV 4, and ENV 5 — capable of
looping as well as tempo synchronisation and five LFOs (low frequency oscillators) — LFO 1, LFO 2, LFO 3, LFO 4, and LFO 5 — capable of acting as step sequencers or one-shots. The modulation matrix — MOD
MATRIX — offers 32 modulation slots with which to route sources to destinations. Such sources and destinations can also be received or sent via MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) CC (continuous controller)
messages or front panel-accessible CV (control voltage) INPUTS and OUTPUTS.

Of course, connectivity to the wider world is as far reaching as it comes, courtesy of that full-blown MIDI implementation (via the usual connection compliment of MIDI IN, MIDI OUT, and MIDI THRU on five-pin DIN as well
as USB) alongside CV/GATE connections (for playing nicely with the likes of today’s ever-widening world of Eurorack modular gear, vintage synthesizers, and more).

Hydrasynth has brought back one of the most requested features in synthesizers and controllers — namely, polyphonic aftertouch. As such, its unique polyphonic aftertouch keyboard breathes life and dynamics into
otherwise static sounds, so users can create expressive musical passages using a standard-sized traditional keyboard. It is not necessary to learn a new keyboard technique to be able to play and perform with the
Polytouch™ keyboard.

Alternatively, a desktop version of Hydrasynth — dispensing with that Polytouch™ keyboard and the user-assignable ribbon controller in favour of 24 velocity- and polyphonic aftertouch-sensitive pads — is available to
those not needing to add another keyboard to their studio or stage setups; saying that, all other performance attributes are still at hand, including an adaptable ARPEGGIATOR and dedicated FILTER CONTROLS, with
crisp OLED (organic light-emitting diode) displays duly providing welcomed visual feedback across the easy-to-follow front panels of both versions of ASM’s inaugural hardware product… when it comes to working with a
sensational synthesis engine, the choice is out there!


Expected to ship in November 2019, Hydrasynth will be available through ASM’s growing global network of authorized retailers at an MSRP of $1,599.00 USD ($1,299.00 USD MAP) for the keyboard version and at an
MSRP of $999.00 USD ($799.00 USD MAP) for the desktop version.

Samplecraze release Vocal Masterclass

Posted: 10-Sep-19


20 videos, totalling nearly 4 hours, exploring a wide range of vocal production techniques

Samplecraze have once again expanded their extremely popular ‘masterclass series’ of video tutorials,
this time with Vocal Masterclass which consists of 20 videos with a combined runtime of 3 hours and 45
minutes. Suitable for producers of all levels, the package comprehensively covers a wide range of vocal
processing tricks, tips and techniques.

Vocals are the most important aspect of any non-instrumental production and are at the forefront of the
quest to engage and satisfy the listener. They are also one of the toughest engineering aspects to
master for any producer and getting them right can elevate a mix to greatness.

Renowned Samplecraze founder Eddie Bazil draws on nearly 40 years of professional audio
engineering and sound design experience to cover both male and female vocals in significant depth. In
his own words, “The vocals tell the story, drive the energy of the song and communicate with the
listener!”

After covering the foundations of preparing, layering and harmonising vocal parts, applying EQ, de-
essing and a variety of dynamics processing techniques the collection then progresses to more esoteric
and creative methods such as using modulation to add dynamic motion, advanced dynamics, ducking
reverbs for clarity, gating, a number of automation tricks and more insider tips than it’s practical to list
here.

As with most Samplecraze masterclasses a subset of the content is aimed specifically at engineering
vocals within the genres of EDM, Rock, Hip-Hop and Rap. However those same techniques can of
course be applied to a much broader set of creative use cases.

Samplecraze are currently offering Vocal Masterclass at the special introductory price of £19.99 which
considering the wealth of valuable information in the package is worthy of serious consideration for any
producer serious about their art.

band or a two-stage (serial) vocal compression.

Voxformer also features the de-esser with selectable center frequency and threshold. Multi-band noise gate is available, which, in a manner similar to the compressor, was
designed to bring ease of tuning while providing excellent sonic results. For those who like a saturated vocal sound, Voxformer implements a special module which applies a
smooth saturation. Another useful feature Voxformer has to offer is the presence boosting module, which you can use to add some shine and space to the vocals.

Voxformer features:

  • Two built-in vocal compressors
  • Two-band compressor operation
  • Asymmetric compression
  • 5-band parametric equalizer

IK Multimedia unveils AmpliTube Brian May for Mac/PC, iPhone and iPad

Posted: 22-Aug-19


IK Multimedia is proud to announce AmpliTube Brian May for Mac/PC, iPhone and iPad. Both feature precise models of the exact live and studio gear used by the legendary guitarist from
the iconic band Queen - all recreated in collaboration with Brian May himself.

From Brian's treble booster to his three-amp live setup and carefully curated effects selection, guitarists can enjoy new amp, cab and stompbox models in a convenient package, along
with presets covering his celebrated discography. Each model was created with the supervision of Brian May and his long-time technical team, to carefully replicate his rig.

A key element of Brian's distinct sound comes from his Red Special guitar that, famously, he hand built with his father in the 1960s from spare parts and household materials. Because the
guitar is such an integral part of his rig, IK's engineers went the extra mile to even create a new stompbox effect that helps simulate the Red Special's tone and controls. This offers
guitarists a more authentic musical experience that pays homage to this living legend.

Inside AmpliTube Brian May
Available in convenient desktop app and plug-in for any DAW, AmpliTube Brian May offers up to 11 new models including 2 amps, 3 cabinets, and up to 6 stompbox effects.

Included are unique offerings such as a new pedal modelling Brian's Red Special guitar and a model of the one-of-a-kind, home-built "Deacy" Amp (with user adjustable battery power!)
originally created by Queen bassist John Deacon, after modifying an old radio. Other highlights incorporate his famous triple-amp live setup; tone-shaping effects; and even a harmonizer
for nailing those Queen stacked leads in a single take.

Amplifiers
Based on the classic triple VOX® AC30™ setup, the BM 30 offers three amps with the effects chain in a Wet-Dry-Wet configuration to match Brian May's iconic setup. The BM DK is a
model of the small "Deacy" amp that became the trademark sound of many Queen songs.

Cabinets
The 2x12 BM 30 Blue (named the 2x12 BM1 in the Brian May collection for iOS) is a triple cabinet based on the cab section of a VOX AC30 equipped with with Celestion™ Alnico Blue
speakers. The 2x12 BM 30 H70 (2x12 BM2 in the Brian May collection for iOS) is with Celestion G12H Anniversary speakers. In addition, the 1x6 BM DK provides the cabinet section of
the BM DK amp, featuring a 6" speaker.

Stompboxes
The Red Special, created from a detailed study of Brian May's famous guitar, helps add the unique tonality and controls of the Red Special itself. Based on the original KAT® Treble
Booster, the Treble Booster enriches guitar tone similar to Brian May's by boosting it before it reaches the amp.

May Wah was based on a rackmount Dunlop® Cry Baby® wah, modelled in the exact configurations Brian May uses to shape his tone, while the FOX Phaser was based on the unique
and distinctive sound of the fOXX® Foot Phaser.

Star Gate is a noise gate that helps clean up the signal chain, minimizing the noise feeding Brian's unique amp and pedal setup.

The iPhone and iPad version, the Brian May Collection (which is inside the existing AmpliTube app) also adds the 30 - a 30-band Graphic EQ, with +/- 15 dB boost per band and a+/-
15dB Level control, to help craft a more exact match of Brian's tones. This pedal is already included for free in AmpliTube Custom Shop for Mac/PC.

Discography presets
A full set of painstakingly created song-based discography presets were compiled by Jamie Humphries, guitarist for the official Queen stage production "We Will Rock You", who has also
performed with Queen and Brian May. These presets allow users to dial up their favourite Brian May tones instantly and were constructed under Brian's personal supervision.

Groundbreaking Modelling Technology
IK's latest Dynamic Interaction Modeling™ was used to deliver the highest level of ultra-realistic sound when modelling Brian May's gear. The product of 20 years' experience modelling
analogue gear, DIM™ models the behaviour of every component in the circuit all the way down to its smallest nuance and character. Applied to May's rig, it delivers the same sound and
feel as his real gear.

About AmpliTube guitar and bass tone studio
AmpliTube is the world's most powerful guitar and bass tone studio for Mac/PC/iPhone/iPad. Available in both free and paid versions, it recreates the entire guitar/bass signal chain from
instrument to recording device in a hyper-realistic and intuitive way. Users can also browse and purchase collections of gear models from the world's top gear manufacturers plus
signature artist gear. AmpliTube is available for both Mac/PC, as a stand-alone and plug-in for most popular recording software, and app for iPhone and iPad.

Easy connection to AmpliTube

Producerloops releases Chilled Out Deep House Vol 3

Posted: 15-Aug-19


Chilled Out Deep House Vol 3 continues this series of stripped-back instrumentals inspired by production talents such as Tim Engelhardt,
Kaskade, Patrice Baumel and, Dusky. Pair these melancholic Construction Kits with traditional Deep House vocals for a four-on-the-floor feel or
craft a Melodic Techno soundscape by introducing some subtle 303s and industrial FX.

M1 basslines, vocal swells, ethereal pads, guitars and endlessly useable percussion make up this bestselling series.

The on-point rhythm sections provide enough drive to complement, rather than overwhelm a vocal performance or attention-grabbing riff, so you'll
have plenty of opportunities to make these tracks your own.

MIDI Files Included:
'Chilled Out Deep House Vol 3' includes MIDI files for the majority of musical phrases heard in each Kit, allowing you to tweak the melodies and
sound design to suit the needs of your production. MIDI has the added benefit of allowing you to go to extremes of pitch and tempo beyond which
the loops were originally recorded, with no time stretching or pitch shifting artefacts.

One-Shot Samples:
This pack also includes One-Shot samples, allowing you to create new beats, fills and loops to complement the existing material. Simply load
them up into your sampler of choice and create an infinite number of new grooves and phrases.

Dry/Wet Loops:
For users looking to simply drag and drop, the 'wet' files contain all of the effects processing heard in the audio demos. But for producers looking
to create their own effects mix, 'dry' loops are also included. Don't like the wet loops? No problem; add your own effects.

Unlooped Riffs/Tails:
This sample library also comes with unlooped/tail versions allowing you to end a phrase with the decay of the reverb/delay applied to the loop,
another Producer Loops exclusive product feature.

Royalty-Free:
All of the loops in this product are 100% Royalty-Free, so once purchased, you can use these loops in your commercial releases without having
to pay master royalties.

Specifications:

  • 5 Construction Kits
  • ACIDized WAV Files
  • AIFF Files
  • Loops sync to BPM
  • 44.1 kHz/24-Bit
  • PC/Mac Compatible

Voxengo PrimeEQ 1.2 parametric equalizer plugin released

Posted: 15-Aug-19


Voxengo is happy to announce the release of PrimeEQ version 1.2 - a parametric equalizer plug-in for
professional music production applications. PrimeEQ was designed to be the first equalizer to reach for
when track or mix equalization is necessary: just insert the plug-in, put and drag the control points to the
