Soup Granular

Posted by Mikers On May - 23 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

643x0w (1)Inspired by the oil can delays of the 60s and our previous granular explorations, Curtis™ and Spunk™, Soup brings you a virtual magnetic fluid that you can record onto, slosh around, and play back from. You can use it as a unique delay effect or more like a granular synthesizer, concocting your own wholly novel sounds.

Quantum Sound

Soup breaks up recordings into individual sound quanta with which you can interact as if they made up an audio fluid. They can be played linearly or randomly, forward, backward, or even sideways. They can, moreover, be stirred together, giving a whole new meaning to mixing sound.

Sounds Touching

Not only is this an extremely visual audio experience, it’s terrifically tactile as well. With support for multi-touch, Soup lets you get in there and mangle the fluid in a way that’s simply not possible with knobs and faders.

Audio Palette

Soup will let you literally paint with sound. You can record external sounds through the microphone or import WAV files, slathering sound over the virtual fluid. Then your fingers can become play heads, reading back the sounds from any position, or multiple positions at once.

FAC Envolver

Posted by Mikers On May - 23 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

643x0wFAC Envolver is an envelope follower, this implies that it tracks the contour of the input signal and builds a corresponding envelope. Think of the envelope as the outline of the graphical representation of a rectified version of your input signal. By its very essence, it’s exactly what you get. But the process does not stop there and gives you the ability to modify the shape according to a set of provided parameters.

So it’s possible to define the rise and fall time as well as the depth of the envelope or also to invert it. Those parameters are the key to ensure the flexibility of the effect, and to meet the goal you are looking for.

The previous lines are more a general presentation of what an envelope follower does, but the particularity of FAC Envolver, which makes it an outstanding and versatile tool, is that it delivers the envelope via MIDI control change messages or commonly referred to as CC.

The key is to map the CC number parameter to the volume, cutoff, resonance control of your synthesizer or effect units. By doing so you will get instant additional hands to tweak your parameters automatically depending on what you are currently playing.

The internal signal path is built around two independant channels, having one envelope circuit detection per input signal. So the left input signal is wired to the envelope one, and the right input signal is wired to the envelope two.

FAC Envolver will breathe life into your sound, providing interesting natural modulation that will always be different by nature.

Harmonizr

Posted by Mikers On May - 23 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

1348742174xscreen1Harmonizr is a vocal harmonizer offering a unique and fun user interface. You can sing a melody, setting the appropriate key centers, and Harmonizr will do the rest, giving 3 voices of automatic harmony. A preset mechanism allows you to change the harmonization, and an editor allows you to customize how you want to harmonize each type of key center (major, minor, and dominant). Harmonizr also supports MIDI input, both to detect key center, and to provide a mechanism for keyboard players to manually specify harmony. There is a 10-voice limit in manual harmonization, and it can be used in conjunction with the automatic voices to create a richer sound, with a total of 14 voices.

Discord4

Posted by Mikers On April - 20 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

audio-damage-discord4-ios-mac-windows-e1519597375160Discord4 is the latest version of our most popular and long-lived product, our Discord stereo pitch shifter. Originally modeled from the H910, Discord has long since become its own effect and a studio standby, and this version includes major additions to further stretch its capabilities. This application includes a stand-alone version (with Inter-App Audio) and an AUv3 effect for use in hosts that support that format, such as Beatmaker 3, AUM, Cubasis, and Garageband. A full PDF manual is available at the Audio Damage website.

Discord4 consists of three separate algorithms: a “vintage” mode (the original Discord algorithm, modeled on the Eventide H910 and H949), a “clean” mode for more modern shifting sounds, and a “granular” mode for experimental effects. Each mode has its strengths, depending on the input material, and Discord3 has a broad palette of capabilities as a result. The P1 and P2 algorithms have full control over the buffer (window) size of the shift effect, for fine tuning the shift to the input signal, or for stranger sound effects. At the extremes of the six-octave shift range, some truly strange aliasing and artifacts can be had with this control.

Discord4 retains its pair of tempo-synced delays and bandpass filters from previous versions, and adds a reverb in the feedback loop (for easy access to “shimmer” effects). We have also replaced the modulation sources from the original with our all-new FLFO (Flexible LFO) design. Panorama controls are included to control the stereo width of the wet signal. Finally, soft saturation and limiting have been added or improved throughout the signal path, for an overall improved sound and added vintage-style warmth, and to allow for extreme feedback experiments without fear of overloading your DAW’s channel.

Features

• Pitch Shifting: Discord4 contains a pair of shifters with three separate algorithms (Vintage, Clean, and Granular) for different styles of pitch shifting.

• Buffer Size Control: The P1 (Vintage) and P2 (Clean) algorithms have a Buffer Size control, from 32 to 2048 samples, for fine-tuning the pitch shifting effect.

• Delay: Tempo-synced or free-running delays with feedback, cross-feedback, and a sophisticated bandpass filter.

• Reverb: A simple stereo reverb is added to the feedback path, for “shimmer” effects and further sound exploration.

• Modulation: Two of our new FLFO (Flexible Low-Frequency Oscillator) with tempo sync and an arbitrary waveform, capable of a nearly infinite number of modulation shapes using only three controls.

• True Stereo Operation: Discord4 has a true stereo signal path, with entirely independent control over each side, finishing with panorama settings for stereo width.

• MIDI Note Control: Six octaves of pitch-shifting can be controlled with MIDI note input.

• All-New GUI: Vector-based resizable user interface.

• Presets: Cross-platform XML-based preset manager.

FS Refraktor

Posted by Mikers On April - 19 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

1354422212xscreen1FS Refraktor is an innovative twist on modulation effects, inspiring the exploration of new sonic territory. Sitting somewhere between a delay and a flanger, FS Refraktor offers endless possibilities, from rhythmic flanging to chaotic pitch modulation and unpredictable stuttering.

The highly flexible sixteen step sequencer and LFO rhythmically warp sounds beyond recognition – standard drums beats become bleeping basslines and synths gain a mind of their own, generating melodies from thin air.

The sequencer’s Slew control varies the speed at which the delay time changes – low settings produce sudden jarring variations while higher settings transition smoothly between delay times.

Bypass the sequencer, and FS Refraktor will add metallic overtones and strange resonances to your sounds, similar to a short, reflective reverb.
Carve Revolutionary Sounds
The dedicated filter section makes it simple to sculpt your sound. Select from a range of versatile filter types: Low Pass, High Pass, Band Pass, Notch and FS Refraktor’s unique Carve mode.

Features:
– Delay section with delay time, feedback, modulation and mix controls
– A highly customizable sequencer for rhythmic modulation of the delay time
– Slew control to vary the speed of delay time changes.
– A versatile filter section with Low Pass, High Pass, Band Pass, Notch and Carve filter options
– Stereo spread control for creating wide out of phase sounds.
– Runs as both a standalone app and an AUv3 extension
– Ability to save presets when run as an AUv3 extension

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.

REMAKE – multiband effect

Posted by Mikers On November - 10 - 2017 ADD COMMENTS

576x768bb (1)Remake is a multi-band effect designed for rich and crisp sound. The input signal is split into 3 parts. Then resonances are added to the lows (under 100Hz) and at the same time two harmonic voices are added to the mid frequencies only. One unison voice and one on perfect fifth interval. These 2 voices have their own positions in the stereo. Then the original mids are mixed with the additional voices and the signal goes through warm and gentle overdrive/gain booster effect with gain control. The high frequencies of the sound are sent through slight vibrato effect.
All these signals are finally mixed on the output to form the result sound.

The effect can work as a stand alone app and as an audio unit AUV3 plug-in.

Controls:
– Bass Vibe – amount of resonances on the low frequencies
– Mid Gain – gain on the midshipmen’s
– Voices – level of the additional mid voices
– Reverb
