The OWL open-source audio effects pedal just got a lot more interesting.
Developers of the Open Ware Laboratory (OWL) pedal have announced the availability of a PureData compiler for the OWL, Tannhäuser.
What’s this mean for electronic musicians?
In a nutshell, it means that OWL users will soon be able to create custom patches in PureData, an open-source, cross-platform, graphical programming environment for musicians and artists.
In other words – you won’t have to be a C++ guru to create your own custom audio effects that run on this hardware pedal. Continue reading

SineVibes has introduced Octagon – a new effect for OS X that they describe as ‘insanely fun’:
This is an insanely fun spectral effect that can do reversed delays, create complex echo rhythms, and model alien reverb chambers.
Octagon splits the audio into eight frequency bands, each having its own dedicated delay line. Delay time, feedback, pan, playback direction and other parameters can be set individually per band, allowing to selectively apply delay effects onto different parts of the sound spectrum. For even further animation, Octagon has three tempo-synchronised modulators with a myriad of waveforms and modulation destinations.
Just like all of our products, Octagon features an extremely elegant, beautiful user interface with colour-coded elements. Thanks to the clean layout and optimised contrast, there is little time needed to tap into its full creative potential. Fast, smooth response and subtle animations make using Octagon a pure joy.
