The 5 new plug-ins :
BASSPEG – Your new go to Bass Amp, built in parallel to the classic Ampeg SVT. It delivers deep lows and warmth to any Bass signal and is indeed very flexible with its parameters to easily contour and control your tone.

S-TRACTOR – Your new de-esser; with just three parameters for quick and easy control of your vocal T’s, P’s, S’s. Adjust the frequency, threshold and amount values to tame those harsh and nasal tones. Simple!
PITCH ME – A dual pitch shifter plug-in, developed with a nod to the formidable H910 units of old. Independently control left and right pitch values for added width and chorus effect to your vocals and guitars and synths, just like those artists from AC/DC to Zappa.
VIBRATOR – Like the Uni-Vibe, add movement to your mixes and instruments/sounds. Create spacial width effects and shimmer. Tuck the effect under your source with parallel mix control for added flavour to static, monophonic and dull sounds.
Plug & Mix products are designed with the minimum amount of controls to get you working fast, not having to think about the interface, the knobs, bells and whistles… Pull up a preset, turn a few knobs to adjust, listen and your there!

For those of you who are working on Electro-Funk style music, Ueberschall has just delivered an exciting construction set full of loops and sounds to inspire you. They have just released Synth Phunk – Funky Electro Pop, an Elastik soundbank that delivers radio and chart-ready pop song construction kits.
Ten construction kits are included all prepared for use with Ueberschall’s Elastik sample loop front-end. Focussed on pure pop combining French-influenced electro with funky retro elements, modern synths sounds are combined with real bass, drums, funk guitar and some talkbox vocal samples.
Synth-based Pop Songs In a Construction Kit Format
Synth Phunk includes over 3 GB of samples and 831 individual loops. The ten construction kits include multiple song sections making full arrangements easy to build. Each song section features multiple synth loops with chord and lead parts. Pre-mixed stereo drums are provided but individual drum loops and single hit samples for kick, snare, hi-hat, etc. also mean you can create your own drum mix. Breakdowns are also easy to construct. The loops have a length of 8 bars and up to 32 seconds.
Elastik provides all the tools you need to re-mix your own take on the song ideas and build variety into your song sections. The synth lead lines and vocal FX loops add instant interest. For electro and pop music producers, just add your own lead vocals.
Ueberschall’s loop-based Elastik player features elaborate time-stretch- and pitch-change-algorithms allow matching of the loops to any song within seconds. Drastic sound manipulations are possible by the Elastik player’s sequencer-controlled functions such as formant, resample, reverse and multimode-filter.
Our friends at Eventide has just told us that their Tverb plug-in has been nominated for a TEC Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement in the category of Signal Processing Software (Effects). This is not a surprise as it is one of the most exciting plug-ins released last year.
Developed with legendary producer, musician, and engineer Tony Visconti who used this effect on David Bowie’s music, Tverb provides an extremely customizable room reverb with some unique techniques and features. Within this virtual room (modeled on the legendary Meistersaal at Berlin’s Hansa Tonstudios) you can mix three virtual channels: one main mic with subtle ambience and two moveable mics capturing the lush room reverb.
Start with a perfect room and configure it to taste by adjusting the standard reverb controls of decay, diffusion and EQ to create the ambience that brings your tracks to life. Now, place a couple of additional microphones anywhere in that room. Move them around until the track sits perfectly in your mix. Set the mikes’ gates to open with the dynamics of the track. You can even have your mics dance around the room in real-time. Impossible in real life; a snap in Tverb.
FET Compression is loved for its aggressiveness and its tendency to add some tasty distortion to the sound source when driven hard. The best example of a FET based compressor is the 1176, clearly one of the best sounding compressors ever designed and found in almost every studio on earth.
The PSP FETpressor is designed to provide accurate, almost instant FET type compression with lots of character. Great for vocals, guitars, bass, drums, and whenever a classic 1970s-style FET compressor is needed.
PSP FETpressor contains everything you’d expect from a FET compressor: an internal side chain high pass filter to control amount of low frequency pumping, smoothly adjustable compression ratio, ability to select which channel to process, and a link switch. This compressor also contains a dry signal blend for parallel compression.
The PSP FETpressor is available at the price of $69 (List $79) at the DontCrack Store.
One of the best synths on the market just got even better. The PolyKB II has been the instrument of choice for world-famous musicians such as Jean-Michel Jarre, Jeff Rona, and Richard Devine for years now. The new PolyKB III is an upgrade that takes this virtual analog instrument to new heights of creative potential.
The PolyKB III captures the sound and spirit of the legendary RSF PolyKobol 2 polyphonic synthesizer, including its most revolutionary feature : Morphing analog Oscillators.
This sets it apart from all the other common analog synth recreations, because you have instant access to hundreds of different analog modelled & free running oscillators waveforms. More than in other synthesizer, including those who propose switching between oscillators models. The icing on the cake is they can be dynamically modulated by many different sources.
3 Morphing oscillators (+ noise)
2 Creamy Multimode 0df Filters
3 Envelopes, 2 LFOS
Polysequencer, arpeggiator, vintage effets
Unmatched analog presence and feeling
Tomorrow’s technology : Hundreds of modulation, including 2 Unique Per voice modulators, a supersized step sequencer and two Mod Matrixes
The PolyKB III is available at the introductory price of $119! (List $159) at the DontCrack Store.
The famous Yamaha CP-80 defined the sound of the 80′s. It was used on rock and R&B hits by Elton John, Peter Gabriel, Herbie Hancock plus many more, and served electronic music innovators from Vangelis to the present.
Now Waves has faithfully sampled this classic 80-model electric grand that continues to be a favorite among modern rock bands and has never fallen out of favour.
This brilliant virtual version brings to life this electro-acoustic sound, with features from the original such as tone controls and tremolo. Also included is Sustain Resonance, which controls the simulated sympathetic resonance of un-played strings – perfect for adding depth to long chords and solos alike.
Sampled from the classic 80-model electric grand piano
Includes tone controls from the original instrument
Mix section for adding different sampled sounds from the original (key up, mechanics, sustain pedal)
Compressor and limiter included
Effects include tremolo, autopan, phaser, chorus, reverb
Can be played as a plugin or a standalone instrument
