World – the time has come to push the button and pulverise!
Creative destruction is the theme of the new Pulveriser, part of Propellerhead Reason 6. According to the Propellerhead propellerheads, it’s the tool to grab when it’s time to squash, add dirt and generally get filthy with your sound.
This official ‘micro tutorial’ gives you the rundown on what to expect from the new Pulveriser.
Remember when Propellerhead Record was introduced? A lot of people said that what they really wanted was a version of Reason that could record…..
It looks like the developers have been listening, because they’ve just announced Propellerhead Reason 6 – and it’s exactly what many were asking for. Reason 6 adds all the features from Record.
Here’s what they have to say about Reason 6:
Version 6 adds audio recording and editing into Reason, along with Propellerhead’s acclaimed mixing console with masterfully modeled EQ and dynamics on every channel, multiple parallel racks, all the effects you know and love plus new ones to fall in love with, and much more of what you’ve always wanted in Reason.
Propellerhead says Reason 6 will be available Sept 30th. But you don’t have to wait until then to find out what is new – we’ve got the details below.
Check out the info and then let us know what you think about Propellerhead Reason 6!
Audio Damage has released Pulsemodulator as a free download for Mac and PC.
PulseModulator is a model of an extremely rare (and exceedingly strange) tremolo pedal from the 70s. Three LFOs effect the VCA at the same time, and the whole mess goes through a distortion circuit, resulting in strange modulating pulses of sound.
Audio Damage added tempo sync to the individual LFOs to make it more useful in a modern DAW environment.
Pulse Speed: These three knobs control the rate of the individual LFOs. If the sync switch for an LFO is engaged (the “1″, “2″, and “3″ switches on the bottom) that LFO will be synchronized to host tempo and the knob will select different tempo divisions.
Pulse Depth: Perhaps unsurprisingly, these three knobs control the depth of the individual LFOs. That is to say, they control how much each LFO affects the dry signal.
Boost Amount: This is labeled as it is on the real pedal. However, the label implies a boost circuit, but in fact it was more of a fuzz. We’ve modeled it as a fuzz but called it “Boost” as well.
Pulse Shape: This controls the waveshape of all three LFOs.
Installation: For Windows, unzip PulseModulator.dll and place it in your VST plug-ins folder. For OS X, unzip the archive and place PulseModulator.VST in your VST folder and PulseModulator.component in your AU folder.
Music Unfolding has introduced, OttoVibe, an auto/touch effect with MIDI control. OttoVibe works much like an envelope-controlled filter, except that instead of a filter, it has a modulation section. The envelope controls the rate and depth of the modulation effect.
OttoVibe has a variety of effects including tremolo, vibrato, panning, and chorus. Altogether, OttoVibe has eight different types of effects. The thing that makes OttoVibe interesting is that the effects can be dynamically manipulated using “touch” or expression pedal controls, much the same way a touch wah works.
According to Music Unfolding, “Even though OttoVibe tends to be more subtle than its siblings (OttoPhormant and OttoPhilter), it is very expressive.”
OttoVibe is $19.99 and is available for OS X as a Universal Binary.
