314x0wFilterstation2 is the Audio Damage take on the classic serial/parallel/stereo dual filter topology, made famous (and some would say “indispensable”) by the Sherman Filterbank and its many clones. With twelve filter algorithms, an envelope follower with stereo sidechain input, a full FSU section for extra signal hacking, and an easy-to-use interface, Filterstation2 is a valuable addition to any producer’s toolkit.


• Twelve different filter algorithms, including MS20 emulation and our classic 914 bandpass and Filterpod lowpass models.

• VCA mode for tremolo and gate effects.

• LFO with twelve different patterns, and both internal and tempo sync modes.

• Envelope follower for dynamic control of filter frequency.

• Serial, parallel, and true stereo operating modes.

• Easy-to use interface for quick programming.

• Vector-based resizable GUI. Use just the filter screen, slide the controls over it, or (in hosts that allow it) open up the whole UI.

• Cross-platform XML-based preset manager; copy your desktop presets to the iOS version using Handoff, or share them with your friends and in forums.

• Full PDF manual available at Support link. https://www.audiodamage.com/collections/software/products/ad043-filterstation2

FM brings rich and brilliant sounds which are impossible to create with analog one.
It makes very complex waves with simple modulations.
The same method is used for a radio.
The synthesizer gained much popularity in the 1980s.

This app lets you make sounds freely with 156 voice parameters.
Almost all parameters are compatible with DX7.

No guarantee with 32-bit devices.
*** Not compatible with iPhone 4S. ***

Reverb arrives for BIAS Amp

Posted by Mikers On November - 16 - 2017 ADD COMMENTS

bias-preampPositive Grid (www.positivegrid.com), makers of the best-selling BIAS Amp and BIAS FX component-level guitar processors, today announced a free update that adds reverb functionality to their BIAS line of professional amplifiers. Known both for ground-breaking technological innovation and an organic and authentic feel, these products allow the user to experiment with different types of components in the virtual amp circuit – swapping tubes, transformers, tone stacks and more to create a custom amplifier designed specifically for the individual needs of each guitarist.

“The reaction to our BIAS Amp, Head and Rack products has been phenomenal”, said Robert McCullar, Vice-President of Sales. “When guitarists plug into our amps for the first time, they’re almost always surprised at how organic and authentic they feel – it’s like a whole new world of possibilities has opened up for them”. Robert continues, “at Positive Grid we truly listen to our customers, and we make every attempt to improve our products based upon their comments and feedback. Reverb functionality has been one of our top-requested features worldwide, and we’re proud to deliver it for our customers with this free update.”

The update for BIAS Amp, BIAS Head and BIAS Rack includes nine different reverb types, covering a wide range of reverb colors and sounds. More than just a simple two-knob design, the user has control over not just Reverb Type, Decay Time and Mix, but also Damping (which simulates the sonic affect of absorptive material, softening the high-frequency response), both a Lo and Hi Cut filter, and Dwell (which operates as a saturation control).

Pricing and Availability 

The update for BIAS Amp, Head and Rack is free, and available now. Learn more at https://www.positivegrid.com/bias-amp/

VirtualRoom AU

Posted by Mikers On November - 10 - 2017 ADD COMMENTS

576x768bb (2)This application simulates the acoustics of a room and reproduces the sound signals for the two ears of a virtual listener inside the room. Listening to these signals using headphones gives the impression of being inside the room at the position of the listener. Please note that without headphones connected to your iOS device, this app may lead to unpleasant feedback noise.

When run for the first time, this application will install an Audio Unit v3 App Extension that can be used in various third party applications.

The sound sources take their signals from the left and right input channels (coming from a microphone, Inter-App Audio, or the AUv3 host application) and can be moved in real time by dragging the loudspeaker symbols on the screen. The listener can be moved by dragging the head symbol. Alternatively, sliders can be used to set the positions (including along the vertical Z dimension), as well as source gains and the listener azimuth.

The simulated acoustic environment can be chosen from three different rooms with different sizes.

Current settings can be copied in a text format to and from the clipboard.

The unique mirroring function lets you create a balanced stereo setup simply by pressing a button.

Axon 2

Posted by Mikers On November - 10 - 2017 ADD COMMENTS

552x414bb (3)Axon 2 is a drum synth driven by artificial intelligence. (Well, “intelligence” might be a strong word. Artificial something-or-other.) An experimental instrument, Axon uses a modified artificial neural network as a sequencer, and features seven FM-based percussion voices, that are really a single 18-operator FM voice.

If that sounds weird, you ain’t seen nothing yet. It is surprisingly intuitive once you get the knack of it, and is capable of all-new, complex rhythms that repeat in surprising ways. It often gets referenced as a “random sequence generator,” but there is nothing random in Axon; it is entirely determinative.

The sequencer features seven “neurons” that trigger a voice and send a pulse when they have received a predetermined number of pulses. You can wire the output of any neuron to the input of any other (with built-in loop detection to prevent runaway feedback), and in this manner pre-program the artificial neural network without having to go through a “learning” phase.

The seven individual drum voices, each triggered by its attendant neuron, are 2-operator FM voices in a configuration to best make percussion sounds, with additional FM and AM busses that all voices send to and receive from. Each voice has a HPF, distortion circuit, and white noise generator to provide a full range of percussion-oriented voicing individually, while interacting with each other in new and unique ways.


• Artificial Neural Network sequencer features seven neurons, and is easily programmed to create strange new repeating rhythms.

• Seven FM percussion voices that also buss together to create a single monolithic complex percussion synthesizer.

• Full mixer with pan, level, mute, and solo on each voice.

• Built-in stereo delay with X/Y pad control over feedback and filter frequency, for live playability.

• MIDI input, including Bluetooth MIDI, for driving Axon from DAW and hardware sequencers, and Virtual MIDI Output (standalone only) for driving other software with the Axon sequencer.

• Inter-App Audio, including transport synchronization, in standalone mode.

• Internal transport for non-synchronized playback.

• Resizable vector-based user interface.

• Drawn reciprocation dingle arm to reduce sinusoidal depleneration.

• XML-based cross-platform, human-readable preset system, with copy/paste, for easy transferring of your own presets and third-party offerings.
