MOK Introduces Filtryg Professional Dual Filter Effect

MOK Filtryg Introduction

"MOK is excited to introduce Filtryg, a professional dual filter effect with deep sound sculpting features to aid in mixing, or add new dimensions in rhythm and timbre to recorded tracks. The integrated envelope follower, wide range LFOs, and MIDI keyboard tracking, each react to your playing as well as your source audio, forming an inspired filter effect that becomes a part of your performance.

The Filtryg dual filter effect plugin offers three filter types with a 12 dB State Variable Filter running in series or parallel with a choice of either 24 dB Ladder, or multiple modes of Biquad, each with their own personality and character. The State Variable Filter is continuously morph-able from Lowpass to Highpass filter modes, with either Bandpass or Notch in-between, while the Ladder and Biquad have a Drive control for extra punch and crunch on the output.

Filtryg’s visually striking interface offers a knob-based control surface, familiar to synthesists and effects users alike. The audio path, modulation routes, and their respective controls are all plainly visible and understandable from the front panel, enabling intuitive and speedy effect construction. It is possible to set up the harmonic-rich sound of audio rate filter FM, including assignable keyboard tracking, in just a few seconds. Finally, all of Filtryg’s parameters are available to automate from the plugin host.

Filtryg is compatible with AAX, AU and VST on Mac, PC and Linux, and is available now at


- Dual filter configuration in Series, Parallel or Mixed for flexible timbral shaping

- 12 dB State Variable Filter (LP, HP, BP, N), 24 dB Ladder Filter (LP, HP), and multiple Biquad Filter choices, each with distinct personality and character

- Morph knob morphs between State Variable Filter modes for dynamic filter variation

- Drive knob adds punch and crunch to the Ladder and Biquad Filter output

- Audio rate Filter FM enables unusual harmonic generation capabilities

- Keytrack modulation control for integrating keyboard performance

- Envelope Follower for direct interaction with input audio and sidechain pumping effects

- Tempo synchronized LFOs and threshold triggered Envelopes for rhythmic modulations

- Customizable color themes and language settings"

Vintage Tonic

Magnus Lidström

"We have developed a machine-learning algorithm that generates synth sounds from audio samples. To put this algorithm to the test we created Vintage Tonic: a recreation of ten legendary drum machines for Microtonic.

Read more about it here:

Download the patches from:"

Some additional info:

"Vintage Tonic is a patch package for Microtonic created from recordings of the following classic drum machines:

Maestro Rhythm King (1960)
Keio / Korg Minipops 7 (1966)
Roland CR-78 CompuRhythm (1978)
Korg KR-55 (1979)
Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer (1980)
Oberheim DMX (1981)
Linn Drum (1982)
Roland TR-909 Rhythm Composer (1984)
Roland TR-707 Rhythm Composer (1984)
Roland TR-505 Rhythm Composer (1986)

Notice that the collection includes both analog and digital drum machines. Naturally, the digital drum machines are much harder to reproduce using Microtonic's synthesizer engine, but even imperfect results are fun, and I find the sounds quite useful.

The older drum machines were mainly preset pattern players. I have painstakingly tried to reproduce not only their sounds but also all of their original patterns."

Instruo Now on VCV Rack


"Happy holidays everyone!

2020 has sucked on many levels… but hopefully this might lighten some lockdowns:
Instruo is now on VCV Rack for anyone to use for free!
It’s been a busy year but I’ve had the great fortune of welcoming a few new team members to the Instruo crew.
This in particular has been a project that really grew exponentially since June!
With the pandemic still on going, hopefully this will ease some boredom and help inspire some creativity.

Thank you everyone that has supported Instruo to date.
I have many exciting things in development and we thought this would be a nice way to give something back in thanks.

Happy Christmas and New Year when it comes.
And of course happy patching!

Crumar Performer Goes Virtual


"Crumar is proud to present the first official virtual instrument: Performer.

UI design by: Pierre Collard
Code by:
- Luigi Felici @
- Michele Picaro @
- Guido Scognamiglio @
Project management by: Andrea Agnoletto

Video editing by Guido Scognamiglio, Andrea Agnoletto
Voiceover by: Luke Martin
Music by: Liqih @ & Michele Picaro



"It was back in 1979 when the italian company CRUMAR released the Performer. It was a 49 keys compact string machine with a brass section. The idea arrived after the success of the Multiman-S model (Orchestrator in USA). After few years, the company was enough smart to understand that the demand of musicians in 1979 was different and music was evolving differently in those days. Here came the CRUMAR Performer, a compact and more modern keyboard that seems perfect for the music of the upcoming '80a.

Performer uses the famous "TOS" configuration. This was a very common and practical way to achieve polyphony at that time: a high frequency clock drives a "top octave generator chip" which produces all the note frequencies for the top octave as a basic square waves. These square waves can be then be fed to frequency divider to produce a note an octave lower, then to another one to generate an octave below than that, and so on.

Performer used the Mostek MK50240N as a top octave synthesizer and used 12 TDA1008 as dividers to create a logical tonal grid according to which keys are being hit on the brass and 8' and 16' string mixes. From here there's an analog filter/envelope on the brass and EQ and analog delay section based on BBD chips for the string section. Performer had 2 hardware revisions during production years basically with these differences:

Rev.A - First instrument release.

Rev.B - Added an extra transpose switch and boards revision. The brass section was completely redesigned using chips from SSM company (Solid State Micro Technology for Music): one SSM2050 IC as envelope generator and one SSM2040 IC as 4-pole filter. SSM2040 is considered one of the best sounding filters for the way it can add harmonics to the original signal, for its resonance and small amounts of distortion when overdriven.

Brass sound is para-phonic.

After more than 40 years since the release of the CRUMAR Performer keyboard, and after one year of accurate and intensive research on the original instrument, sound, components and schematics and all its variants, we decided to offer the same playing experience with an accurate software, a faithful replica of the original hardware instrument.

Performer is a physical modeling simulation of the original vintage instrument.

Main features:

- Adjustable global and single note tuning.
- Fully polyphonic.
- Realistic control panel with sliders and buttons like the original.
- Accurate simulation of original circuitry.
- Selection for Rev.A and Rev.B filter.
- Selection for the "sustain modification".
- Built-in adjustable reverb and chorus effect.
- Simulation of pedals effect section including Graphic EQ, Phaser, Flanger and Analog Delay.
- On-screen help tips and readout values.
- Very low memory and CPU power needed.
- Easy MIDI-Learn feature.
- MIDI map import and export feature.
- Bank and program import and export feature.
- Compatible with Windows and OSX.

Expressive E Introduces Noisy - physical modeling and subtractive synthesis

Discover Noisy
Hear Noisy in action
Tonnerre playing with Noisy
Noisy x Touché

Update: Noisy walkthrough video added:

Expressive E

"Enter a world of resonances: A hybrid between physical modeling and subtractive synthesis, Noisy uses the principles of acoustic resonance to bring life to both electronic and acoustic sounds. Noisy was designed to generate highly playable, multidimensional sounds, whose textures and articulations can be easily combined and manipulated."

Click the pic to zoom in.


Additional info via the press release:

"When the strings of an acoustic instrument are hit, they vibrate and go into resonance, creating timbres that constantly and vividly fluctuate as they dissipate. Noisy recreates this organic response by sending noises into a suite of resonators. The random, continuously changing behavior of the noise enlivens the sounds with unique character.

Each resonator has an acoustic and a subtractive dimension. The “acoustic” side emanates from optimized comb filter technology, while the electronic, subtractive synthesis side applies resonance to traditional waveforms, a new concept called Resonant Oscillators.

Multidimensional - One Preset, Many Sounds

Noisy has been designed to generate highly playable, multidimensional sounds, whose textures and articulations can be easily combined and manipulated. Every preset has four distinct dimensions of sound design, which can be used on their own, or combined seamlessly with each other. In addition, a preset layering system lets you mix the dimensions of two different presets, allowing endless possibilities for sonic creation."

Pipa – Expressive Vocal Synthesizer


"Pipa is a singing vocal synth with a unique and different sound. It is inspired by the expression and flexibility of the human voice, but does not aim to cover all the aspects of an actual voice. Instead, it focuses on an organic and musical sound where the user has the possibility to control formants and dynamics seamlessly.

The synth engine is a crossover between a wavetable- and a granulating synthesizer, which results in a very expressive and playable instrument. Instead of using ordinary samples or processing oscillators with formant filters, Pipa uses a large database of thousands of wavetables extracted from real vocal samples. The advantage of the technique being used is that it’s possible to seamlessly morph between wavetables with proper phase alignment. This enables Pipa to continuously make transitions between pitch, formants and dynamics, which is very useful in a musical context." Find the free demo at

UVI Program 24


UVI Program 24 | Overview

"Program 24 - Electronic Disco, Synthwave and Beyond

Program 24 brings back the vintage charm of 80’s electronic and disco soul with a suite of 5 instruments and a massive selection of sounds, sequences and arps. It covers numerous styles such as Italo and modern disco, synthwave, electro, experimental and more for a new-generation twist.

We're a small but spirited team with a global footprint, music and sound lovers eager to share our passion. We're honored to be a part of your creative journey and thankful to you for sharing ours.

©2020 UVI. All rights reserved."

"Program 24 brings you the pure sound of '80s Italo Disco inspired by two wild synths nearly lost to time, the Solton Programmer 24 and SM100. The Programmer 24 is an unassuming 3-octave keyboard released in 1985, it contained everything necessary to produce complete arrangements, and real time performance features perfect for backing up the band. It sported a full 8-bit PCM drum section, analog bass and lead arpeggio with analog filters, violin, cello, and 3 flute voices (8', 4', 2'), a featured arranger, chord and pattern sequencers. To top it off, it had individual outputs for 8 drum parts and bass, full MIDI, and a tape interface for storage.

What really caught our attention with this little beast was the sound. Right out of the box it just sounds good, packed with an '80s character we simply adore. The drums are clean and punchy, the bass and arpeggio pack vintage funk, and all the voices work together to create a full and truly classic sound.

The SM100 is another cool analog synth, with DCOs and a phenomenal chorus/ensemble effect. We multisampled every sound allowing you to engage the chorus effect just like you would on the real thing. All-in-all these two fantastic machines deliver tons of flavor and great sounding voices ready to lay down the groove for a new generation.

Program 24 delivers sounds and arrangements from a special period of time, and new and unique ones inspired by these machines. We captured every drum sound (and some extras from mythical machines like the DMX, Linn, 8o8 and more), along with the full range of each analog voice, MIDI drum patterns, classic and chord follower arpeggiators, and discrete preset recall for each sound. Numerous included multi kits, single sound presets, arpeggiators, drums kits and drums MIDI files deliver both pure vintage and all-new sounds and patterns designed by our team, giving you a huge variety of both classic '80s sounds and contemporary patch designs.

For those looking for the complete package the included multi instrument offers a fully-loaded and fully-programmable workstation allowing you to program complete arrangements with your DAW, using all the hardware voices together. For added convenience and sound sculpting potential we've included 2 reverb sends and 2 delay sends that can be fed by any of the drum or instrument voices, along with per-instrument multimode filters, drive, phasor, and EQ. Finally, 2-bus effects including drive, compressor and EQ help you add punch and polish to the mix without leaving the UI.

As well, we've made each of the instrument sections available separately, allowing you to call up only the drums, bass, strings and organs, or accompaniment voices as you need them. Each individual instrument is identical to its multi counterpart, offering the same effect section, sends and presets. A terrific way to focus on sound design, or simply add one or two layers to your production."

Mother Source Tutorial

"The Mother source concept is based on the exchange of sources on the included presets, these sources are designed to generate a new sound on the same preset.
Imagine that we have a bass preset with a short Decay and a devastating distortion. Now, just by changing the source, we will obtain a new sound that, maybe, we like more or that maybe it adapts better to what we are looking for, so a single bass preset generates more than 130 different basses in a blink of an eye. | more information:"

"Motion has Evolved.

Continuing on Wide Blue Sound's rich history of kicking asteroids, Elysium raises the bar for musical movement.

Introducing ELYSIUM, an inspiring two-layer synth for creating music with spectacular tonal rhythms, movement and unrivaled playability.

With an entirely new way to create striking percussive pulses, beautiful organic arpeggios, and evolving pads, Elysium simply cannot be replicated by any other synth on the market.

Some of the biggest synths end up being preset synths, with features built for the patch designers instead of the users. Elysium is different.

With dozens of macro knobs, generators and fun ways to create movement, even your most simple patches sound more lively in Elysium than they would anywhere else. Elysium's groundbreaking, critically-acclaimed UI was designed to give you the most power and flexibility possible with the least amount of resistance.

After years of rigorous design, Elysium skillfully combines live+hybrid instruments with the most iconic synths of all time. We sampled some of the most sought-after sounds for both producers and composers, such as Gamelans, pianos, mallets, a beautiful string section recorded at a church in New York, and much more.

Run hundreds of iconic synths through the morphing Flow Engine and find yourself lost in mesmerizing pulses, sweet leads, and meditative pads."
