"Video by Jim Coker, Music from Ben Marsh by way of Numerology 4 Pro.

"This video was created for a video art project I made for Currents New Media back in 2014 (Santa Fe, NM). For that installation, I only used a portion of this video and wanted to (eventually) get the full edit posted. The music is by Numerology Pro user Ben Marsh, who contacted me recently to share some of his lovely creations, and offered to provide a much-needed soundtrack for this little movie.

Audio Damage Filterstation2 Back From the Dead

via Audio Damage

"Filterstation2 is a full top-to-bottom end-to-end rewrite of our Filterstation dual filter plugin, and finally brings this bad boy back to our store. Product page is here. We'll be releasing an iOS version hopefully before the end of the year. Filterstation2 is US$49.00 for AU, VST, VST3, and AAX. An upgrade for existing Filterstation owners is available for US$10.00."

"The Filterstation2 download includes 32/64-bit VST and VST3, and 64-bit AAX for Windows 8.1 or greater, and as a 32/64-bit AU/VST/VST3/AAX for OSX (10.8 or greater).

Coming soon for iOS AUv3 and IAA Standalone.

Filterstation2 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.

Filterstation2 takes our original Filterstation plugin, and adds an all-new HiDpi/Retina-capable vector-based UI with resizability, a completely rewritten parameter and DSP section, a full selection of extreme modification tools, ProTools support, an cross-platform XML preset mechanism.

Repro 1.1 Update Now Available with Repro-5 | Patches via BoBSwanS

Repro-5 Patches by BoB SwanS Available Now!! Published on Dec 15, 2017 BoBSwanS

via U-He:

"We are wrapping up 2017 with the release of Repro v1.1, a free update for Repro-1. A year ago we released Repro-1, a brash and raw monosynth. This year we added a new polyphonic family member: Repro-5.

Repro-5 shares a lot of sonic DNA with Repro-1, but once you start playing with Repro-5 you will discover new and unique flavours and characteristics, most notably polyphony."

And via BoBSwanS:

"I rarely have the time to create patches since the birth of my daughter but after playing with the public beta of U-He Repro-5

I was amazed and excited to create some patches similar to my Prophet 12 offerings. This is seriously (in my opinion) The most authentic sounding Prophet 5\Analog synth emulation i have ever had the pleasure of using.

So without any further rambling

I present

126 new patches for U-he Repro-5 by BoB SwanS

Featuring Classic and Contemporary Basses, Leads, Keys, Pads and Fx

I have programmed the majority of these patches to have both subtle and dramatic changes in tone and character using the 2 available mod slots, Aftertouch, Velocity and the mod wheel assign functions.

All patches are tagged using the plugin's internal tagging system

Please take the time to listen to the audio demo's before you purchase the patches, It is a short selection of a few personal favourites, some are played live and some are sequenced.
The demo's have no fx other than the ones built into Repro-5 and the file is not Mastered or EQ'd in any way

The patches are available here

A special introductory price of 12 Euro is available until the 31st of December 2017, after that they will be 16 Euro

Mystic Circuits - 0HP VCA / AND Gate

Published on Dec 15, 2017 DivKidVideo

"Here's another lovely little 0HP accessory/module/magic passive box of tricks from Mystic Circuits. This time we check out the VCA / AND Gate which will respond right up through audio rate with the CV input giving us all sorts of AM, pseudo Ring Mod style sounds. It's great with audio, CV or both and despite what you may think of the form factor and price ... it proves to be mega useful for a range of things."
