SoundRadix announces Radical Bundle 2!


The new SoundRadix Radical Bundle 2 now includes the following 4 products for $599 instead of the $746 you would pay if you bought them separately.

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. Just set any of the EQ bands to a desired harmonic and watch SurferEQ move with the track, staying always relevant to the music.

Pi is an innovative, multi-channel phase interactions mixer plug-in engine for Mac and PC.
Pi works to improve the summing of a DAW or a mixer. Pi dynamically minimizes frequency cancellations between instruments within the mix, improves mono compatibility and brings back the lost depth and focus lost when overlapping frequencies collide.

Auto-Align will listen to your multi-mic recording and automatically measure and compensate for the delay between the microphones, or between a DI box and a microphone – sample accurately, significantly reducing the comb filter effect and dramatically improving the resulting sound.

Drum Leveler
Drum Leveler 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.

UVI promo -50% on String Machines!


Until the 23rd of February you can get the amazing Strings Machine from UVI at half price!

Back in the 70′s, leading keyboard designers around the world attempted to reproduce orchestral string sounds through analog synthesis. The results were far from their original intent but were in no way failures. Used on countless cult records and engrained in our collective memory to this day; these ‘String Machines’ bore an analog soul on their own.

The UVI team spent countless hours working on ways to capture this analog soul and present it as an accessible, expressive, fully editable digital tool. So was born String Machines; a hybrid instrument, forged with the analog imprint of the 11 most musical string synthesizers ever built.

UVI String Machines is your doorway to a grand collection of analog gems from some of the most esteemed synth pioneers of our time.

PSP announces L’Otary!


PSP has announced a new brand new emulation of the famous Leslie rotating speakers, best known as the speakers used with Hammond organs.

PSP based their algorithm upon two original and legendary models: the Leslie 122 and 147, and spent hundreds of hours perfecting our simulations. In other words, this is not just another modulation effect! PSP L’otary is capable of reproducing as precisely as possible the classic sounds of those famous rotary speakers.

That said, the PSP L’otary is capable of creative divergences from the original. For example, you could set up both the rotating high frequency horn and the rotating low frequency drum independently from each other and emulate speakers with a static drum or even a broken horn or drum engine.
