video upload by Madrona Labs

"This quick exploration by Sheryar shows how to bring depth and movement to ambient sounds using Sumu's 64 channels of rhythmic modulation via it's Pulses module. Perfect for Sumu newcomers or sound designers looking to expand their toolkit.

We'll cover:

Setting up the Pulses module
Modulating Partials and Space
Shaping envelopes for playhead behavior
Using the dual rhythm generators
Tweaking width and center controls to target specific partials"

Madrona Labs Kaivo: Resonator Overview


video upload by Madrona Labs

"Kaivo is a software instrument combining two powerful synthesis techniques (physical modeling and granular synthesis) in an easy-to-use semi-modular package. It’s laid out a bit like an acoustic instrument; the GRANULATOR module acts like the player’s touch, exciting one or more tuned objects (here, the RESONATOR module, based on physical models of resonant objects) that come together in a central resonating body (the BODY module, also physics-based)."

How to make lush spatial pads out of a single harp note using Vutu and Sumu


video upload by Madrona Labs

"Discover the sample warping magic of Vutu and Sumu as Sheryar turns a single harp note sample into lush pads in this short step-by-step tutorial.

Sumu and Vutu can be found here: https://madronalabs.com/products/sumu/

0:00 - Introduction
1:00 - Importing our harp sample into Vutu, processing it, and exporting it as a resynthesized .utu file
2:11 - Importing our resynthesized harp sample into Sumu
3:11 - Patching the resynthesized harp sample into a pad sound
4:56 - Setting up some spatial movement using the Space module
5:55 - Using the low pass mode on the filter to tweak the harmonics

Enjoy the sounds!"

Madrona Labs Sumu: Resynthesis (Done Right), Sample Mangling & Spatialization in One Cool New Synth


video upload by Keith Crosley

"Sumu is now in early access! Let's take a look at the new VST synth from Madrona Labs, Sumu. Sumu combines sample resynthesis, partial f**kery, FM, and spatialization to create sounds that are quite unique. We also explore Vutu, the companion app for Sumu, that allows us to process, analyze, and import samples with the amazing "Loris" resynthesis technology. The announcement about this synth got a little buried in all of the noise surrounding Superbooth 2024... so let's take a closer look and listen...

Also, I promise a look at some new wavetables in KRC Mathwaves, but never get around to it. Maybe next time, pard! (But go buy KRC Mathwaves, anyway.)

Grab your partial analyzer and get ready for resynthesis-a-go-go! Along the way, we even use a KRC Mathwaves wavetable to spin a freaking room around. That's new and different...

Madrona Labs Announces Sumu Early Access Release



Press release follows. You can find demos of Sumu in previous posts here.

Presenting the Sumu Early Access release.
If you’ve been following our news at all, you know what a big deal this is. From my first ideas about Sumu in 2018, to my decision to write a whole new plugin framework, to working with a new crew of beta testers, this one has been a long time in coming. If you’d had a baby when I first previewed Sumu, that preschooler would be about old enough now to say “When is Sumu coming?” Or as Mozzer once asked, “How Soon is Now?” We have the answer now, and it's now.

In case you’re just joining us, Sumu is an additive + FM resynthesizer with vector field spatialization. Each voice has 128 oscillators arranged as 64 FM pairs and each pair can be positioned independently in space. It’s all controlled with a familiar Madrona patcher, but this time with 64 channels in each patch cord.

Sumu’s full price will be $179. For a limited time, we are offering it for $129, in thanks for your early support. Purchasing now gets you the Early Access version right away, and gives you a perpetual license for the 1.0 version coming soon and any future 1.x versions. We have been beta testing Sumu for over four months, and are happy to say it’s a stable piece of software. And just like our other instruments, you can try the demo before purchasing. So we think it’s a win-win.

The new Sumu product page has more info, and the downloads you’re looking for.

Bundle of wonders.
Along with Sumu’s rollout we also added a bundle deal to the website. If Sumu is your first plugin, and you’ve looked longingly into each other’s eyes, and slowly smiled, and somehow you just know it won’t be your last, definitely check out our Studio Bundle. It’s everything we make for one deeply discounted price.

And if you’re a long-time customer who has yet to round our your collection, we figured out how to bring you along for the ride. Add the bundle to your cart and a discount will be applied at checkout for each license you already have.

Kaivo: Gate Module Overview


video upload by Madrona Labs

"Kaivo is a software instrument combining two powerful synthesis techniques (physical modeling and granular synthesis) in an easy-to-use semi-modular package. It’s laid out a bit like an acoustic instrument; the GRANULATOR module acts like the player’s touch, exciting one or more tuned objects (here, the RESONATOR module, based on physical models of resonant objects) that come together in a central resonating body (the BODY module, also physics-based)."
