Utami Release ‘Space Time,’ Max For Live Spectral Effect Suite

Utami has released a new Max For Live plug-in, Space Time, which is a spectral effect suite.

Space Time is a spectral effect suite with a built-in visualizer.  The suite works to create spectral reverb, ambiance, noise, time distortions, and a wide range of effects that can be played in real time.  It has a unique filter system which Utami calls a synesthetic filter which works by converting the sound internally to a picture, and then applying Photoshop-style image filters to it before converting it back to a sound again.

Sonic Faction ‘Clone’ Micro Tutorial

Sonic Faction has published the first in a new “micro tutorial” series, which will feature a short video of each instrument in the company’s new Archetype Ableton Bundle.

The first installment in the series is a three-minute tutorial for Clone, their 80’s synth hybrid.

Sonic Faction’s Taylor Martyr says, “Max for Live allows us to create custom-designed interfaces and intuitive controls that haven’t been possible in Ableton until now. Among its other features, Clone has a unique section called the ‘Delta Triangulator’ which allows users to rhythmically modulate their sound with ease. It’s great for when you want to achieve driving, 80’s-sounding bass lines”

Pricing and Availability. Sonic Faction’s Clone is available now, via the Sonic Faction website, for $49.  The full Archetype Ableton Bundle page (includes Clone and 7 other Max for Live instruments) is available from Sonic Faction for $199.
