Twisted Electrons’ Crush is a tabletop effects unit that creates bit rate and sample rate reduction effects.
According to the company, “Crush can reveal interesting textures surprisingly rich in character and harmonics by lowering the sample rate and resolution of you sound.”
You can adjust the amount of distortion manually with the Crush knob, and/or add some modulation with the dual-shape LFO. Continue reading
NIIO Analog has introduced the Iotine Core 2 – a full analog audio processor, designed to ‘thicken and or shape’ mono audio signals. Continue reading
Kymatica has released AUFX:Push, a highly tweakable stereo dynamics processor for iOS.
AUFX: Push offers noise gate, compressor/expander with external side-chain input, and limiter/clipper. The effect can create effects from subtle compression to extreme pumping to maximum loudness.
This app is part of the AUFX series, a collection of simple and powerful audio effect apps.
Here’s a video demo: Continue reading
This video takes a look at how to patch a modular synthesizer to create a DIY compressor.
Klevgränd Produktion has introduced a new audio effect that they describe as ‘a hybrid between a simple reverb and a very complex delay.’
R0Verb consists of up to 50 separate delay lines, and puts you in charge of every single delay with controls for volume, pre-delay, feedback & high shelf. It can be used for everything from simple delays to complex spaces.
Here’s a preview of ROVerb in action: Continue reading
Glitchmachines has introduced Convex – a multi-effects processor, for Mac or Windows, designed for the creation of contorted artifacts, syncopated patterns and skewed digital textures.
Based around three classic effects; multimode filter, pitch shifter and delay, Convex generates dynamic variations of the input signal by morphing between two instances of each effect and modulating their key parameters using an extensive array of control modules. Continue reading
Sinevibes has introduced Extremum, a new effects processor for OS X (AU).
According to the company, Extremum was built with one huge goal: ‘to turn even the most simple sounds into insanely interesting, tonally rich and exciting new materia’l.
Extremum features a collection of phaser, chorus and filter algorithms, comprised of up to 256 stages and 16 feedback lines – all of which apply radical but finely controllable transformations. To take it even further, Extremum has its own tempo-synchronised modulator with multiple waveforms, variable lag and chaos. Continue reading
Developer Johannes Taelman has introduced Axoloti, an open platform that lets you create custom hardware synthesizers and audio processing systems. Continue reading
