Plogue has introduced Chipspeech – a new speech synthesizer, for Mac & Windows, that recreates the sound of famous 80’s voice synthesis chips.
It features 7 different voices, each with its own characteristic timbre. It is tailored for musical applications – type in lyrics, and then you can play them on a MIDI keyboard.
Chipspeech is also a true synthesizer – the sound can be extensively modified. The app also features a circuit bending emulation, letting you not only recreate the ‘insane and chaotic sound’ of a circuit bent TI speaking device, but also use it in a controlled, musical way. Continue reading →
“Quite simply put, it beats the s*** out of any other single chip emulation VST currently available,” says 8-bit artist nitro2k01. “chipsounds is a must-have for anyone who’s seriously interested in chip sounds but don’t have access to the real hardware.”
chipsounds is designed to faithfully reproduce the sound and style of vintage video game music and sound effects in plugin format, usable inside any sequencer or DAW, or as a standalone virtual instrument.
Plogue chipsounds will be offered at an introductory price of 75$ until November 1. Continue reading →
