Gamechanger Audio Introduces MOD Series Modular Pedals

video upload by Gamechanger Audio

"Gamechanger Audio is thrilled to unveil the MOD Series, a revolutionary fusion of classic pedal design with the extraordinary, enigmatic world of modular synthesis. This series isn’t just an evolution in audio processing—it’s a complete reimagining of what a pedal can be.

Each pedal is equipped with two modulation sources that you control directly with your performance. The DYNAMICS follows the volume nuances of your playing, capturing the character of your picking style and your instrument’s loudness and decay. The PITCH tracker, on the other hand, detects note choices as well as bends and vibratos. Through the simplicity of the included patch cables, you wield the power to route these modulations to any of the four effect knobs and set the parameters in motion.

Changes in effects are often achieved through presets, expression pedals, and MIDI control. While each of these methods has its own advantages, they can only take you so far. The MOD series offers a different way — orchestrate the effects by focusing on playing your instrument.

Dtronics Introduces DT-303 Distortion for the TB-303

Dtronics DT-303 vs Roland TB-303video upload by Dtronicsmusic

"Basic demo of the Dtronics DT-303 Distortion for the TB-303

The Dtronics DT-303 is a distortion that fits perfect with a Roland TB-303 Giving it unique sound to your acid music.

The Dtronics DT-303 is not your ordinary distortion, It is not a clone or copy.
It gives you 3 blends that you can adjust and filter. Each of the 3 settings have minor changes in the frequency spectrum. The distortion knop allows you to spice things up from minor to overrated distortion. Use the filter knob to suppress those high frequencies. A volume knob is added to adjust the output level to your needs. A bypass knop allows you to switch back to the original sound quickly.
The DT-303 was designed to fit perfect next to your TB-303 or RE-303. With the connections at the back you will have no spaghetti wires hanging over your gear."

Nembrini Audio NA 501 Chorus Echo plugin

video upload by Nembrini Audio

Press release follows:

Nembrini Launch NA501 Chorus Echo Plugin

The Legendary Roland RE-501 Chorus Echo Reborn

8th January 2024: Nembrini Audio launches the NA501 Chorus Echo Plugin. The new, cutting edge plugin enabling musicians and producers to rediscover the legendary analog warmth, authentic spring reverb, classic tape delay and lush BBD chorus of the iconic Roland RE-501 Chorus Echo*. Listen to it here or watch the launch video

Released in 1982, the renowned Roland RE-501 Chorus Echo was the last of Roland’s line of electro-mechanical effects processors. The ‘box’ contained a special tape recorder to create delay effects or ‘echoes’ alongside a spring reverb and chorus effect. The unique design of unit allowed the longer tape to move freely making the echo sounds longer and cleaner. The coveted RE-501, highly sought after for its colourful character and richness of sound was used by Bob Marley to create deep, throbbing echoes and Radiohead to produce pitch-shifting effects.

The NA 501 Chorus Echo is an innovative digital re-interpretation of the sought after Roland RE-501 Chorus Echo. It faithfully captures the complex essence of the mechanical and electronic component interactions of one of the most notable tape delays ever designed. By extending the original design with modern functionality, enhanced control and flexibility and allowing it to fit seamlessly into today’s digital work stations, the NA 501 Chorus Echo plugin goes beyond mere emulation.

The authentic sound of the meticulously modelled plugin is ideal for adding rich analog textures to any genre of music and is a versatile tool for musicians and producers seeking a classic sound with contemporary workability. The extended creative controls of NA 501 Chorus Echo along with its intuitive user interface make it easy for users to recreate the impression that the echoes are receding rather than simply getting quieter.

The new plugin is currently on offer at until 31st January 2024. The desktop version introductory price is $29.99 rising to $99 and the iOS version $7.99 increasing to $14.99 after the promotion ends. NA 501 Chorus Echo is PC, Mac and iOS (VST2, VST3, AU, AAX and AUv3) compatible and requires a FREE iLOK account.

This one was sent in via Brian Comnes who had the following to say (links will take you to more info):

"Here's some stocking stuffers for Christmas.

Boris Kovalev has been making ambient sound tools for over a decade. Back in 2011 I was messing with his AMBITRON and PSYBOX synths and having a lot of fun. see here

Well lately by chance I came across his latest work at 2MGT and I have to say, these are some nice tools for those of us interested in the ambient side of synthesis. Yes they are software, no real knobs to twist but they do sound really nice. Best part they are donation/freeware. I'd say they are as nice as anything Giorgio SanCristoforo is doing and getting $20 a pop for.

The UIs do take a little bit of initial head scratching to decipher and attain competence, but they offer nice eye candy to work with compared to say the current sparse dials only ones popular today.

Lorre-Mill Comb Room

"The comb room effect combines a dual delay (room circuit) and a comb filter to make echo/reverb-type sounds and resonant feedback. The comb filter is in the feedback path of the delays. An envelope follower gives movement to either the comb filter or the room circuit. The comb resonance control in conjunction with the comb return control can create self oscillation. The preamp for the 1/4” input has selectable gain of 10x or 40x and a soft clipping characteristic. The comb and room circuits are both built around 1 bit delta-sigma converters. In the case of the delays, the analog to digital conversion is done in the PT2399 echo IC. The comb filter uses a simple and gritty A/D converter built of logic chips and op-amps. Which gives the filter a characteristic sound. Clock noise can be heard at lower frequency settings. Patching the room output to the return will bypass feedback through the filter, allowing all frequencies to echo."

See the dealers on the right for availability.

Demon Seed - Noise Apocalypse

video upload by

"Every year we make a pedal to donate to the raffle prize fund for the local Christmas Covers Southsea gig, where various idiots play ridiculous cover versions to raise money for Rowans Hospice and Music Fusion. This year its the Demon Seed!

The Demon Seed is a fuzz / distortion / frequency shifting / 8-bit / lo-fi / filth pedal that makes noise in industrial quantities more than sufficient to made deaf people weep.
It utilises the Holtek HT8950 voice changer chip that was designed specifically for use in toy robot voice changer megaphones. The HT8950 converts the analogue guitar signal to 8-bit digital, applies 6 selectable types of frequency shifting or a weird robot arpeggio effect, and then converts the digital signal back to analogue again.
Before someone points it out, yes this pedal was to some degree inspired by the excellent Death By Audio 'Robot' pedal, but with the addition of several features that the HT8950 chip offers but the Robot pedal doesn't use. The Robot is the original HT8950 pedal. All hail Death By Audio!

This demo was recorded using just the Demon Seed pedal and and a clean amp simulator. You'll have to forgive the inability to play the guitar.

We may well have some of these available in the new year."

A Korg MS-20 in the WORLDS LONGEST REVERB + other Synths in Weird Spaces // Poly Effects Verbs

video upload by DivKid

"Ever wanted to hear a Korg MS-20 in the worlds longest reverb? Of course you have, I have and now I have ... and now you can!

With the power of convolution reverbs and good impulse responses I transport some of my synths (Korg MS-20, Roland SH-09, PWM Malevolent and Eurorack Modular) into some unique spaces included a bombproof underground WW2 oil storage facility in Scotland, an abandoned cooling tower in Belgium as well as classic studio gear with the AKG BX20 spring reverb and the ECOPLATE 1980 plate reverb. Tremendous fun and fantastic sounds.

This is all with the brand new Verbs stereo convolution pedal from Poly Effects. It has 8 banks of 8 impulse responses (plus 8 more that can be user replaced) with some fascinating natural and man made spaces along with a collection of studio gear and create, weird and wonderful IRs too. Full features listed below.

Poly Effects site + more info //

This is also a soft launch/announcement to talk about PEDALS & PATCHES my new video series on using guitar FX pedals within creative studio environments. I'll largely be synths and modular, though other instruments and environments will creep in. This launches in 2024 and will likely be a monthly video series. NOTE // this isn't a break from what I already do, it's an addition to it.

Supporters on Patreon get both an extended 'Precision Pitch Transposing' patch breakdown video as well as a whole other unseen patch not in this demo video.

United Plugins introduces Instant Audio’s QuickMuse Multi-Effect Plug-in

video upload by United Plugins

Press release follows:

"United Plugins introduces Instant Audio’s QuickMuse as ultimate plug-in to ignite creativity powered by magic of randomness

'QuickMuse is my to-go inspiration muse as one of the easiest and best multi-effect plug-ins in my arsenal; two to three clicks and you have a vital, spacey sound with multi-faceted textures.'

- Future Bass- and Future Pop-specialising songwriter, composer, and producer Flashback One, 2023

PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC: independent development teams federation United Plugins is proud to announce availability of Instant Audio’s QuickMuse as another cross-brand collaboration between founding partner SounDevice Digital (forever fine-tuning tools based on longterm experience of mixing many recordings in its namesake SounDevice Studio) and FireSonic (famed for its always-searching-for-a- shortcut attitude) — duly delivering a multitude of instant yet unique results, injecting fresh and unpredictable elements into compositions, productions, and sound design as the ultimate plug-in for igniting creativity powered by the magic of randomness — representing the latest in a series of tools to instantly assist anyone in achieving their desired sound, as of November 1...

It is unfair to simply call QuickMuse an audio plug-in since there are five unique effects — FIRE, EARTH, AIR, WATER, and AETHER— at its creative core. Combining to unlock a world of sonic possibilities, all are inspired by their elemental namesakes. Needless to say, QuickMuse is simple to use as a smart randomising multi-effect; quickly clicking on the centralised ‘random button’ instantly generates inspirational settings using all five elements, as well as rearranging the ORDER in which they are processed in the effect chain. Thankfully, the random algorithm at its heart is ‘smart’, so it intelligently selects combinations of settings that work well together to give good results — read: no nasty or weird results. Repeatability is far from likely, however, given the sheer volume of hidden parameters it controls. (Ultimately, users can choose to manually control that ORDER by simply dragging and dropping those elements’ symbols accordingly, as well as bypassing their corresponding effect by double-clicking on any element, so random single effects are also achievable.)
