Sunsine Audio has introduced the Harmonic Decoder - a new effect pedal that can sound like a fuzz, an octave/harmony pedal, a filter/wah, a complex waveshaper or some crazy bent 8-bit glitch box.
All of its effects are derived from an analog VCO, a phase detector, and a simple filter in an arrangement known as a Phase Lock Loop. At the heart of the Harmonic Decoder is a true single oscillator analog synthesizer. It effectively resynthesizes any signal delivered at the input, providing extreme waveshaping and harmonic effects in the analog domain.
The frequency of the VCO can be modulated either by the internal envelope follower or via the external control voltage input.
Sunsine Audio has introduced a collection of four stereo effects for Audulus, Effectus.
Effectus contains 4 stereo effects ready for standalone or Audiobus use.
Shifter -Shifter contains a pitch shift section as well as a ring mod section. Both can be used independently or mixed together as well as mixed with the original signal.
Binary (Chop) and Binary (RIng) - Binary is an amplitude modulator or gate device, and comes in two flavors. Binary (Chop) allows exploration of slower speed stereo gating effects while Binary (Ring) brings the amplitude modulation into the audio range, producing ring modulation effects with a different tone than the “traditional” ring modulation in Shifter produces.
Mothra -Mothra is a sequenced and filtered reverb. Each input is individually fed through a network of distortion devices, simple low pass filters, and reverbs which are then delivered to a 16 step sequencer providing strange stereo and resonant spaces which can be “stepped” through.
Time Gap -Time Gap is a filtered stereo delay with cross feed between the left and right channels. A simple high pass filter is followed by three delay units with two resonant low pass filters placed between them, delays can be cross fed at two points in the signal chain.
Sunsine Audio has introduced Casino 2 – a new library of 64 presets for Cassini, featuring Basses, Leads, Pads, Arpeggiations, Chiptune, Formant and FM patches and more.
Every preset has the modulation wheel routed, as well as all 4 performance modulation knobs assigned to aspects of the sound, giving you a high degree of real time control over the sounds. Continue reading →
Sunsine Audio has released Impact, a set of 64 new presets for Impaktor.
The pack makes full use of every aspect of both synthesis engines. Physical Modeling is explored through the “Membrane” and “Resonator” sections, Noise Shaping through the “Noise + Vocoder” section, and Frequency Modulation though the FM synthesizer section. Many of the presets contain a combination of these techniques interacting and combining in various ways, including some “tuned” presets that allow playing discreet pitches in a scale depending on the frequency of the impulse. In this manner some presets allow a melody to be played in the style or spirit of a talking drum or steel drum.
The sounds in this set range from classic “ethnic” sound types such as clay or frame, steel, or talking drums, to more traditional electronic sounding drums, and finally futuristic style percussion and drum sounds which may be defined as industrial, alien, or hybrid instruments.
