Sonic Charge has introduced Permut8, a new VST / AudioUnit that lets you modulate, manipulate and mangle your audio in countless ways.
Here’s what Sonic Charge has to say about Permut8:
Permut8 is an effect plug-in that embraces the sounds of primitive signal processing hardware. At its core is a 12-bit digital delay with variable sample rate from 0 to 352 khz. The delay is controlled by a programmable processor that allows you to change and modulate the delay time with various “operators”. The input and output stages offers virtual analog components for saturation, limiting and filtering. The sound of Permut8 is raw and complex but noisy and warm at the same time.
Permut8 is available now, for Mac & Windows, for $66. A trial version is also available.
The Korg Kaoss Pad Quad lets you use up to four effects simultaneously. These effects can be sync’ed to the beat of your music, to transform your song in realtime. Any audio source can be processed; an MP3 player, a mixing board, an instrument, even vocals via the mic input.
If you’ve got a question that you’d like to see addressed in the review, the best place to ask it is probably on the video at YouTube.
The eighth episode of Electro-Harmonix Effectology series looks at recreating Joe Meek’s Telstar, and the sound of a vintage Clavioline, using just a guitar and effects pedals. No keyboards,samplers or midi pickups were used.
