ToonTrack releases 2 New Products!

Toontrack has just released two new products, Songwriting EZkeys MIDI 6 Pack and EZkeys Vintage Upright.

The Songwriting EZkeys MIDI Bundle provides you with professionally played piano parts, all performed in full song structure blocks and in a variety of intensities.

It covers anything from traditional country to the dwindling harmonic landscapes of jazz ballads, the distinctive tonalities of R&B and the everyday pop and rock.

The Vintage Upright sound library features a carefully sampled Ostlind & Almquist piano, a classic Swedish brand dating back to the late 1800s and widely known for its quality, craftsmanship and heritage.

This instrument was built in the 1930s and captures the essence of the timbre in a well-built upright piano. The frail, silvery treble, the bright, distinct mid range and the focused, round bass, all painstakingly captured in a world-class studio facility.

This coupled with the powerful framework of EZkeys gives you not only instant song ideas, it lends you a creative canvas, ready for you add your own expression to.

Both of these products are on promo and available immediately here on the ToonTrack product page.

SoundRadix announces Drum Leveler !

The new Drum Leveler from SoundRadix is a new beat detection-based downward and upward compressor/expander. By selectively applying gain to single drum beats, Drum Leveler easily achieves the desired target level for each beat, without affecting bleed noise or beats that are out of the user-defined processing range.

Unlike traditional envelope-followers that detect incoming levels and utilize VCA to apply gain changes, Drum Leveler runs an advanced new algorithm that takes full advantage of the digital domain – allowing unparalleled control over your drums’ dynamics.

Drum Leveler is powerful yet easy to use. It will help you achieve solid driving grooves, improve clarity and add punch to any percussive performance. SurferEQ tracks the pitch of the instrument or a vocal track and can change the EQ frequency accordingly in real-time, making it possible for the first time to naturally control the fundamental frequencies or harmonics of a track.

Drum Leveler brings a new, radical approach to drum’s dynamics control.

Features

- Transparent, beat detection-based simultaneous upward & downward compressor/expander
- Applies gain to each beat individually to achieve set target level
- Gain reduction and expansion is transient-accurate to the drum beat for artifacts-free transients reproduction
- Dual threshold levels allows processing any level range to affect only specific beats within a track such as ghost notes or bleed without affecting other beats
- Mono, Stereo, Dual Mono and Mid/Side operation modes
- Easy to use and intuitive user interface

It is available for Mac & PC in AAX, RTAS, VST and AU formats, in 32 and 64 bits where applies.

Drum Leveler is $149 retail, and on sale on the DontCrack store at $139 here

Blue Cat Audio have release updates for the Blue Cat’s PatchWork and MB-7 Mixer plug-ins,

Blue Cat Audio have released an update for the Blue Cat’s PatchWork and MB-7 Mixer plug-ins, improving compatibility with third party plug-ins and adding new interoperability features.

Both plug-ins can now load more VST and Audio Unit plug-ins (fixing compatibility issues with several plug-ins manufacturers). For improved interoperability between systems, plug-ins’ state are now retained even if the plug-ins are missing, and VST plug-ins can be relocated if moved. The new PatchWork 1.5 plug-in also supports MIDI FX Audio Units and can be loaded as a MIDI FX in Logic Pro X to quickly build complex MIDI effects chains (full change list below).

The update is free for existing customers and is available for download from the same page as the initial purchase (link received by email). Demo versions can also be downloaded on www.bluecataudio.com, in VST, RTAS, AAX, Audio Unit and DirectX formats, for both Mac OS X and Windows (32 and 64-bit).

New Features for both plug-ins:

Missing VST plug-ins can now be relocated if not found.
The plug-in now saves missing plug-ins’ state so that they can be restored later.
New Features for Blue Cat’s PatchWork 1.5:
The Audio Unit can now be loaded as a MIDI FX in Logic Pro X.
MIDI FX Audio Units can now be loaded into the plug-in.
Fixes and compatibility improvements for both plug-ins:
Fixed issue on Mac when loading sessions created on Windows using VST plug-ins in sub-directories.
Fixing compatibility issues with several plug-ins that used to crash when unloaded (Image Line, MeldaProduction, Catanya, …).
VST Plug-in name is now displayed when loaded from a missing VST shell bundle (instead of just the name of the bundle).
(Mac) Fixed random crashes when using keyboard shortcuts in the host application to switch between plug-ins or tracks.

Fixes and compatibility improvements for Blue Cat’s PatchWork 1.5:

(Mac) Fixed parameters not available for mapping when Audio Unit bridged with SoundRadix’s 32Lives.
(Mac) Fixed parameters mapped with wrong range for some Audio Units (u-he, AAS, …).
(Mac) Fixed parameter changes sent from host not visible in the user interface for some Audio Units (u-he, …).
