The TRITON music workstation revived | KORG Collection for Mac/Win

Published on Dec 26, 2019 Korg

"The TRITON music workstation revived.
A synthesizer collection completely reconstructed in software.

More about KORG Collection at:

More than 15 years have passed since the release of the KORG Legacy Collection, a pioneer of software-based synthesizers offering full recreations of the analog circuits and digital systems of generations of KORG synthesizers. In 2017, we added the ARP ODYSSEY and re-released the collection under the name Korg Collection.

Now in 2019, the TRITON is the newest addition to the Korg Collection. Originally released in 1999, the TRITON achieved huge popularity across many genres and continues to be used 20 years later. The new Korg Collection TRITON comes with the complete EXB-PCM soundboard series, giving you access to a huge array of sounds so you can achieve TRITON's full potential.

KORG's many generations of synthesizers are beloved by musicians around the world. Surpassing the boundaries of digital and analog, the KORG Collection continues to revive the distinctive sounds of synthesizers that have left their mark on the history of modern music."

"The long-awaited addition to the KORG Collection series, the TRITON Music Workstation Synthesizer, is finally available. As the originator, KORG reproduced everything perfectly without any compromise. Now you can finally get the sounds that rocked the hit charts in software.

Sounds that come to represent an era inevitably fall victim to the change of style and fashion. What once felt new and refreshing becomes dated and boring. Still, those sounds always retain the emotional value that originally touched the hearts of musicians and listeners alike. Over time, new generations bring their own flavor and combine the old and new advance the cutting edge of art and music. In this modern age of software synthesizers the KORG Collection, with generations of iconic KORG sounds, will surely be the trigger for that synthesis."

Wavetable Multi Operator Synthesizer Audio Plug-In VST / AU / AAX / Demo & Pro

Admiralizor combines two synchronizable wavetable, sub and sample hold/track noise synthesizers with the flexibility and brilliance of a multi operator AM / RM / FM and PM cross synthesizer. The flexible 2D/3D real time wavetable editor comes with different morphing types, harmonic editing and a waveform generator.
Analogue sounding and routable resonance filters including shelving filters and key follow complete the clearness of the digital synthesizers.
Pulse width, amplitude, ring, real phase and 4 types of frequency modulations are included.
On board is a step sequencer and arpeggiator with different pattern lengths, swing, tie and key substitution.
The unison feature layers many slightly detuned waveforms to make sounds fat and wide.
The massive and „scroll less“ FX section contains dynamics (including compressor, expander, limiter and gate), tremolo, pre eq, overdrive, distortion, post eq, vibrato, phaser, flanger, chorus, delay, reverb, equalizer, filter and limiter.
Admiralizor contains many modulation sources (e.g. macros, LFOs featuring on/off triggering/delay/bpm, envelopes, two flexible chaos modulators) and hundreds of (aux) modulation parameters with adjustable polarity and transposition.
A flexible preset manager including quick presets, A/B comparison, multi filtering and text search is in-built.
Resizable UI from very small up to Ultra-HD & 5K Retina, multi step undo/redo, MPE support, key hold, gain protection, auto off and the customizable RMS meter are more than nice-to-have features.

UVI Introduces the PX P10 Based on the Sequential Circuits Prophet-10

Published on Nov 6, 2019 UVI

"PX P10 - Analog Prophecy 2x5=10

A new instrument in our Prototype Series, PX P10 delivers the timeless analog sounds of an ultra-rare dual-keybed monster synthesizer. Tremendous warmth awaits, including the true hardware analog unison!

Video Credits: Matt Vanacoro"

via UVI

By far one of the sweetest sounding and most influential analog synths we've had the privilege to work with, an iconic and powerful instrument whose lineage helped shape the sound of music and music for film throughout the '80s and beyond. Developed as the first fully-programmable polyphonic synthesizer with preset storage, this version 10 was the original prototype of what would become the mythical version 5, debuting in 1978 and revolutionizing the synthesizer world. It was only 3 years later, in 1981, that the more complex version 10 would see commercial release.

Essentially two version 5 synths rolled into one dual-keybed monster synthesizer, version 10 sported 2 oscillators, a white noise source, and a resonant low-pass filter per-voice. Depending on mode it could function as two discrete 5-voice keyboards, a single 10-voice keyboard, a single 5-voice 4-VCO "doubled" mode allowing sweet stacked unison sounds, or an alternate mode where subsequent notes would switch between the settings of the two 5-voice keyboards.
Few of these giants were produced, and due to their sheer size and complexity very few remain. A truly iconic instrument from aesthetics and features to sound quality, this synth is a gem with a timeless sound and lasting legacy.

Given the history of this renowned series and particular gravity of this version 10 we spared no expense in the creation of PX P10. The refurbishment was the most difficult and time consuming we've undertaken, but resulted in a perfectly functional instrument with a gorgeous sound that translates directly through to the final presets.
From vintage-styled to contemporary, we designed a huge selection of sounds capturing vibes from '80s classics, modern genre, soundtracks and more. Everything was extensively multisampled including the raw waveforms both with and without unison allowing you to enable genuine hardware 4-VCO stacking on any sound in the library - and unlike the hardware, these can all be played polyphonically, limited only by your computer.

As with the original, you can load two programs at once, and with the unison mode engaged you can create truly massive analog sounds without consideration for a 5 or 10-voice ceiling. Explore the premade sounds or create your own by mixing and matching layers, adjusting amp, filter, panning, effect settings, and utilizing per-layer arpeggiators and modulators.

In the end we recorded over 30,000 samples, packing PX P10 with a whopping 309 presets made from 188 layers, divided into 15 categories including bass, leads, strings, polysynth, ... Each of the sounds is fully customizable and can be used straight-away or as the starting point for your own sound design. Raw waveforms are also available for those who want to build up their own sounds from scratch."

Chaos Culture - Modulat Teaser Trailer - Max For Live Toolkit - Ableton Live - Signal

Published on Nov 6, 2019 Isotonik Studios

"Modulat is a MaxforLive Toolkit of prebuilt modules that you can use to effect parameters, output audio and generally be awesome. Spawn a module from the menu and connect it up using patch cords, this is MaxforLive without the coding! PLEASE NOTE: MaxforLive 8.0.2 is Essential for Use!

Formerly known as Signal, Modulat is a toolbox of modules that can be connected together to create or modify signals from Ableton Live, transform and output them as Audio or control for parameters. Begin by spawning modules from the menu and then connect them with patch cords by clicking on each modules inputs (left) and outputs (right). You can click on any output to monitor its signal within the scope and all modules run at audio rate. Use the Audio In & Out Modules to exchange signals between devices or to send & receive control voltage.

Modulat is a node based / modular playground for control signals such as LFOs, envelopes and automations. Most Max for Live control devices have a lot of issues and limit the possibilities by completely taking over the control of a parameter in Live. Signal uses audio signals for all its calculations and lets you route them however you want giving you a lot more options while keeping the highest quality possible along with staying sample accurate.

Additionally it eliminates chain mapping, where you would use an LFO on another one. Since every mapping in Live introduces a delay as well as CPU usage, chain mapping is not useful at all. With Modulat you only need one mapping to make everything possible. You can always add another signal and keep expanding the setup. Especially by using multiple instances you can use Lives own routing to mix control signals, record them and play them back in any way using the session view, the Looper device or simply by triggering them using Simpler/Sampler.

Additionally Modulat is the only device on the market that provides a workaround to control parameters in sync with Live by compensating for the delay. You can find out more about this workaround on page 10 of the user guide linked below.

The modules in Modulat are versatile, you don’t need a lot of them to create something useful. With a lot of additional features that haven’t been done before, bypassing mapped parameters for example, Signal is the ultimate control device.

With the flexibility Modulat becomes a meta language, you can basically create your own control devices exactly how you like it without actually having to program them in Max. Signal takes away all the work of getting the basics to work and leaves you only with the decision making."

Max for Live Grain Scanner by Amazing Noises for Ableton Live

"Grain Scanner lets you design experimental noises, glitchy effects, alien textures and massive clouds of ambience. Its advanced sound engine turns any sample into a blank slate for otherworldly synth parts.

A 10-voice polyphonic granular synth and re-synthesizer, Grain Scanner chops samples into small slices, then re-arranges and plays them back in a multitude of ways. The result is sound that lives somewhere between the organic and the synthetic.

Grain Scanner is set up for intuitively creating evolving textures that change in complex and unpredictable ways. Its advanced granular engine can play up to 1000 microscopic slices of a sample simultaneously. A dedicated modulation page features four LFOs. Modulate each of the 10 voices individually or modulate the global parameters with up to four modulation sources at once. And its step sequencer and separate effects panel let you mold your sound even further.

The Pack comes with more than 100 presets to play with, and a database of dozens of source sounds ready to be bent, twisted and transformed. You can also import your own samples to create a completely personal sound. What’s more, Grain Scanner was made with Push and other keyboard controllers in mind, so you can easily start making melodies and harmonies with sounds you designed yourself.

Key Features:

10-voice polyphony with an advanced granular engine
Advanced 4x modulation system and step-sequencer
Dedicated effects page
Perfect for Push and other keyboard controllers
Key Follow adds depth and expression to your performances
118 presets"
