Soundtoys Introduces SuperPlate at NAMM

via @Soundtoys

"If you're at the NAMM Show come see us at booth #15922. We'd love to see you! We're also showing off our brand-new SuperPlate plug-in, shipping next month."

Press release follows:

April 13, 2023 (ANAHEIM, CA) – The Soundtoys crew is demonstrating the new and eagerly awaited SuperPlate plug-in during the NAMM Show at booth #15922. SuperPlate, along with the Soundtoys V5.4 bundle, is expected to ship some time next month.

SuperPlate emulates the unique tonal character of five classic electromechanical plate reverbs – without the massive investment and back-breaking weight of the originals. Its advanced algorithms capture a level of unmatched realism and versatility and create luscious, immersive effects.

At the core of SuperPlate are meticulous models of the EMT 140, EMT 240, Audicon, EcoPlate III, and Stocktronics RX4000 plate reverb units. SuperPlate includes three different flavors of analog coloration – Tube, Solid-State, and Clean – which can be used in combination with any of SuperPlate’s styles. The Tube and Solid-State modes are modeled on the EMT V54 preamp for tube saturation and the EMT 162 preamp which has a built-in compressor to help tame transients.

SuperPlate also includes a range of modern digital features, including infinite decay time, built-in pre-delay, expanded modulation controls, full-featured EQ for detailed tonal shaping, and a unique decay ducking option that adjusts decay time to avoid overlap or masking.

“We love the sound of real plate reverb and wanted to bring the distinctive sound of our vintage plate collection into the world of modern audio. It’s been an incredible challenge working with these massive electromechanical wonders – shipping, repairing, and tuning nine of them at our labs as well as others in private studios,” said CEO and lead designer Ken Bogdanowicz. “After analyzing and living with these devices for several years our team captured the true essence and variety of tones from the five different plate reverbs that we modeled for SuperPlate. We always try to take our effects beyond ‘simple emulations’ and with SuperPlate I feel like we found the perfect balance – switchable modeled preamp styles, built-in parametric EQ, and extended and dynamic decay time – to make SuperPlate a versatile go-to reverb effect. It sounds great and it’s fun and easy to use.’”

The latest version of the Soundtoys 5 bundle brings together an expanded range of 22 audio effects, including the new SuperPlate plug-in. In Soundtoys 5.4, SuperPlate is also integrated into Effect Rack with a stunning new suite of presets. SuperPlate is an optional add-on for those who own the Effect Rack plug-in but not the full Soundtoys 5.4 bundle.

“We’ve wanted to add a high-end reverb to Effect Rack since it was first released. Now with the option of using SuperPlate in Effect Rack, the creative sound design possibilities have exploded. The combination of reverb, pitch, modulation, and distortion effects all in one plug-in, with easy drag and drop routing and tweaking, have inspired our sound designers to create dozens of new effects just in the past few days that they’ve had access to this update. I can’t wait to hear how our customers use this!” – Ken Bogdanowicz
In this super-powered collection, users can saturate, compress, and distort with Decapitator, Radiator, and Devil-Loc. Get a virtual history of echo and delay hardware with EchoBoy, EchoBoy Jr, and PrimalTap. Transform vocals with Little AlterBoy. Recreate classic studio pitch, chorus, and widening effects with Crystallizer and MicroShift. Take modulation to new levels with the beat-synced rhythmic effects of PanMan, Tremolator, FilterFreak, and PhaseMistress.

Now with the new SuperPlate reverb, Soundtoys 5.4 bundle allows for even more power to create complex soundscapes, unique textures, and dynamic sonic movements. The limitless versatility of this proven, world-class plug-in bundle unleashes the creative potential to enhance or transform any audio project – and version 5.4 is the strongest yet.

SuperPlate will be sold individually for $149 MSRP or as a trade-up from Little Plate to SuperPlate for $59.
Soundtoys 5.4 will be available for $499 MSRP or as an upgrade from Soundtoys 5.3 to 5.4 for $59.
SuperPlate can be added to the Effect Rack plug-in for $59.

EMS Synthi AKS analogue modular synthesizer jam / demo (dank techno vibes on an original 70's AKS)

video upload by ako

"My first jams with the original 70's EMS Synthi AKS modular synth at work at the Keele University music production studios, or rather 13mins of the best bits edited from footage of my first couple of hours jamming with this monster. After the 'satanic dub siren' patch I made, I noticed the keyboard pitch control used the same points on the patch matrix as the external audio inputs, this gave me the idea to see if it would track the pitch / follow external audio. I tested this with a Yamaha MU15 and then by sending some drums into the audio inputs from Ableton Live. I really like heavily processed percussion and I ended up jamming with this idea for an hour or so with various different drum patterns (which makes up most of this video). It (unsurprisingly) worked very well with techno / gabber-esque kick and cymbal patterns. Although the kicks were actually low toms as toms seem to work the best for tiggering the oscillators (presumably because the toms have more pitched content). It also seems to mix the input audio with the synth audio (as you can clearly hear the audio of the original cymbals at various points). This all makes me wonder how the built in keyboard works, does it generate audio frequencies? Also I noticed you can fire external audio in and still use the keyboard and both will simultaneously control the oscillators. I must admit I don’t know a ton about this synth (and I couldn't really figure out the envelope generator, it seems to loop and retrigger itself – any info on synth is welcome!) but it sounds insane! Hope you folks enjoy"

Likaon Instruments Marie’s LFO

Marie's LFO and Mandala demo video upload by likaoninstruments

via Likaon Instruments

"An LFO / quad envelope generator with a completely customizable waveform, based on Bézier curves.

During a discussion with Marie Ann Hedonia, we got to talking about what would be the ultimate feature in an LFO module.

The killer feature that came out is the ability to draw a completely custom waveform, instead of tweaking around with sines, squares and triangles. Daphne Oram had this idea years ago, and we thought it was time to implement this great concept in an LFO in Eurorack format.

Marie’s LFO is a module where you can draw your own waveform by using Bézier curves (think about Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape’s paths)

You have the ability to select points and control points, and move them around to exactly define the output voltage evolution over time. Needless to say, the curve shape can be adjusted in real time 🙂


The module has three synchronization modes.

No synchro : it runs freely and you can modulate its frequency with a knob or CV input
MIDI : it detects the MIDI clock frequency, and you can divide or multiply the tempo by power of two (1x, 2x, 4x, 8x…)
TRIG : it detects the input trigger’s frequency and you can also apply clock division on it.

Marie’s LFO offers 4 offset-able outputs. Each output runs on the same curve, but you can adjust their offsets.

The audio mode allows you to generate signal based on your curves, but in audio frequencies. Controlled by MIDI input (and sooner or later 1v/octave).

Noise generation

Because purity is no fun, Marie’s LFO also contains a configurable (in amplitude and density) OpenSimplex noise generator that can be applied to your curve in real time. The noise generator is controllable with CV inputs as well.

Saving your work

The module allows you to save your work (curve path) and configuration(frequency, sync mode, outputs offsets) in 32 memory slots, so you won’t have to restart from scratch every time !

Interesting rig. You'll find a picture of the back below with the TG33. This is the first post to feature the Hybrid Arts CPX computer module. Hybrid Arts also made the ADAP SOUNDTRACK SAMPLER ADAP-1. If anyone has any info on the CPX, feel to leave a comment. Curious if it's simply a computer with an editor for the TG77 and TG33, or it's own synth/sample playback module. Take a look at the back below. The Synthax RACKWare RG 124 appears to be the monitor for the system, and the Kawai MAV-8 is a midi patchbay.

It's interesting to see the TG77 and TG33 in a different enclosure.

NAMM 2023 - - Netherblade

video upload by

"Eric Netherland of Eon-One.Net showed us the Netherblade, a MIDI controller that has a sound engine which can run any plug-in, be it samples, physical modeling, granular, digital, or any other type of plug-in. It has a real-time pitch bend feature that can bend any note to any other note polyphonically.

Eric handbuilds each Netherblade, and there are only a few of them in existence as he mostly builds them to order. The price range is between $2,400 and $2,700, depending on the CPU and memory and whether the customer wants a painted or natural finish. The Netherblade has three interface types: keyboard, Fretboard, and a grid for triggering drums and other sounds.

Netherblade Price: 2,400 - 2,700 USD"

The Netherblade is a unique and expressive musical instrument. Stylish, precise, fast, and fun to play. This is the first MIDI controller that can accurately bend pitch from any note to any other note on a standard keyboard, fretboard or grid layout. There is virtually no learning curve for any keyboardist or guitarist although there are infinite open doors to create new techniques. Independent per-note pitchbending is seamless and fluid with nothing in the way of sliding to any interval in any direction whilst remaining in tune. Vibrato is natural and intuitive with no need for fixed LFO modulation. The instrument allows a players character to come thru so no two performances will sound exactly alike

Response time is lightning fast and, with no moving parts, can play faster than a standard keyboard.

Pitch and articulation are separated for easier control. With the integrated XYZ pad, you can simultaneously modify 3 MIDI controllable parameters while playing and bending notes in real time. Examples: volume, timbre, harmonics, muting, effects, etc. Additional switches provide octave up/down and configurable keyswitching.

NAMM 2023 - Verbos - Real World Interface

video upload by sonicstate

"Mark Verbos from Verbos Electronics has unveiled their latest product, the Real World Interface, at the NAMM show in 2023. Designed to allow sounds from the outside world to be integrated into a system, the module includes internal microphones, and accepts any kind of signal that can be patched before the preamps. It includes an envelope follower and a gate extractor on the outside channels, a preamp followed by an automatic gain control, compressor, a fundamental extractor, tracking low pass filter, and a locked oscillator and pitch CV extractors on the center channel.

The Real World Interface module allows monophonic external sounds to be sent through the center channel, with the locked oscillator following along on the pitch of those sounds. The CV coming out could be used to make another oscillator track along with that. The Real World Interface also allows for interesting dynamics processing with an envelope follower and a VCA, and other classic external processing patches like using the envelope follower to change the filter cut off.

Shipping: late July or early August.

The Frequency CV can be “attenuverted” (with inverting attenuator on CV input). The resonance CV comes with an attenuator.
