    Softube and Vermona release Random Rhythm


    Nyhetsroboten

    Linköping, Sweden, April 9th, 2020: Built for performance, with a soul for invention. The Softube Vermona Random Rhythm plug-in is a random-based, dual-channel, trigger sequencer with an uncommon concept at its core. Modeled to Softube's exacting standards, Random Rhythm makes it possible to experiment with probability while maintaining full control. Whether used as the sole rhythm base or as an invaluable addition to other sequencers, Random Rhythm is a magnifying glass for creativity.

    Softube and Vermona's Random Rhythm is a blast to play with, with its two rhythm sections housing four sliders apiece that can influence the probability of what will appear in the generated pattern. Building upon the original hardware features, Softube added software exclusives to Random Rhythm that enable saving presets and the states within the session. A formerly arduous process—creating complex, previously undiscoverable rhythms—is now not just simple, but also a thoroughly imaginative endeavor.

    Vermona's musical legacy goes back decades with the production of amplifiers and organs. The Vermona Random Rhythm sequencer is emblematic of the innovative thinking that has given the company true staying power within the industry. Softube is proud to have worked in collaboration with Vermona to create the fully-endorsed Random Rhythm plug-in available for Softube Modular.

    In short

    • An exact model of the original hardware, authorized by Vermona  
    • Get creative, one-of-kind results without manual or note-by-note programming
    • Software exclusives let you save presets and the states with the session  
    • Made for Softube Modular, functions just like the Eurorack hardware
    • Great for drum modules, as an arpeggio sequencer, or anything you can conceive of

      På senare år har det börjat dyka upp pluggar som siktar på att hjälpa oss att jobba snabbare och mer effektivt. Istället för en sjuttioelfte plugg som ska efterlikna de mest eftertraktade analogburkarna så har en del tillverkare börjat inse att det går att göra mycket mer än så med hjälp av datorer. Olika typer av semiautomatiska dynamiska EQ har dykt upp. (In English at the bottom of the page).
      För ett tag sedan testade jag till exempel Gullfoss från Sound Theory, och den här gången är det dags för Soothe 2. Soothe är tydliga i sitt namn vad det är de vill göra. Har du någonsin suttit och försökt peta ut störiga frekvenser med smala EQ-kurvor och känt att det till slut kanske tar bort saker i ljudet som du egentligen inte vill? Då kanske du ska ta en titt på det här.

      Intelligent plugin helps you clean up
      In recent years, plugins have begun to emerge that aim to help us work faster and more efficiently. Instead of a seventy-eighth plugins that mimics the most sought after analogue analogue products, some manufacturers have begun to realize that much more can be done with the help of computers. Various types of semi-automatic dynamic EQ have appeared.
      A while ago I tested Gullfoss from Sound Theory, and this time it is time for Soothe 2. Soothe, as the name says, what it is they want to do. Have you ever tried to squeeze out disturbing frequencies with narrow EQ curves, and felt that in the end it might remove things in the sound that you really didn't want to be removed? Then maybe you should take a look at this.

      Celemony Software GmbH, Munich, 26.05.2020 (ictw) – Celemony is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the new Melodyne Version 5. The Grammy-Award-winning software Melodyne is used all over the world every day for the correction, perfection, reshaping and transformation of vocal tracks, samples and audio recordings of all kinds. A studio standard, in fact. But even the best things can be improved.
      Melodyne 5: What’s new?
      The most important new features of Version 5 relate to Melodyne's core competence: the correction of poor intonation on vocal tracks. The algorithm now detects – along with a host of other phenomena – the presence and extent of the unpitched (noise-like) components of the vocal sound as well as breaths, which it then processes separately from the pitched components. This leads to better results, less time spent editing, and a more natural sound.
      Factor in the improved weighting of pitch deviations and Melodyne 5 now hands you back – virtually in two shakes – a musically perfect vocal performance.
      The volume balance between the pitched and unpitched components can be adjusted – syllable by syllable if desired. This not only helps with double-tracking and vocal harmonies but gives you a perfect and precisely targeted de-esser into the bargain.
      Totally new possibilities for dynamic contouring are afforded also by the Fade Tool and the Leveling Macro, as they too work on a per-note basis – even with polyphonic audio material.

      A new degree of musical freedom
      But Melodyne 5 also supports new workflows that further musical creativity: With the Chord Track (and the Pitch Grid configured accordingly), recordings and samples can be adapted at lightning speed to the harmonic structure and chords of your own compositions and songs. So any library sample now harmonizes instantly with your song. That's perfect for songwriters but also for remixers. And thanks to the integrated chord recognition, no knowledge of music theory is required.
      The most important new features of Melodyne 5 in a nutshell:
      With the Melodic algorithm, separate editing of pitched and unpitched components of the vocal sound (sibilant detection). Better results, less time spent editing, more natural sound The ability to control the volume ratio between the pitched and unpitched components – a precisely targeted de-esser function Improved weighting of pitch deviations, musically perfect intonation A Chord Track and Chord Grid to adapt any recordings and samples to your song – thanks to integrated chord recognition, no knowledge of music theory required The Fade Tool and Leveling Macro let you edit the dynamics of each note – even in polyphonic material A new algorithm, "Percussive Pitched", plus various other algorithm enhancements Fuller implementation of keyboard shortcuts
        Melodyne 5: Working with chordsWorking with chords
      Melodyne 5 runs in stand-alone mode as well as with 64-bit DAWs under MacOS and Windows – DAW integration via ARA, VST3, AU or AAX. The update costs 49 €/US$ for Melodyne assistant, 99 €/US$ for Melodyne editor and 149 €/US$ for Melodyne studio. For Melodyne essential and users who registered Melodyne after 1 March 2020, it is free of charge. A 30-day trial version can be downloaded from https://www.celemony.com/en/trial

      Valet av inspelningsprogram styrs av din budget, behov av ljud och möjlighet att kunna samarbeta med andra. Men även hur tålmodig du är. I dagens måndagstips går Lotta Fahlén igenom vad du bör tänka på.
      DAW är en förkortning av Digital Audio Workstation och är kort och gott en mjukvara för att spela in och mixa musik i datorn. DAW kan också referera till en dator med mjukvara samt ljudkort och inte enbart själva programmet. Ableton Live, Reaper, Logic Pro X, FL Studios, Bitwig, Reason, Pro Tools, Cubase, Sonar, GarageBand och Audacity är några av alla de inspelningsprogram som finns där ute. Det är naturligtvis omöjligt att skriva uttömmande om samtliga, men här några saker som förhoppningsvis kan hjälpa dig i ditt vägval.
      Tålmodig eller ivrig?
      Är du personen som tålmodigt läser manualen och tar god tid på dig att lära dig från grunden? Eller vet du med dig att du blir rastlös och tappar intresset om startsträckan blir för lång att lära något nytt? Om du är ivrig kan det vara ett bra alternativ att välja ett inspelningsprogram som det går snabbt att komma in i. Exempelvis har Logic Pro X ett nybörjarläge där avancerade funktioner går att stänga av för att lättare komma igång med det mest grundläggande. Har du dessutom jobbat i GarageBand är klivet inte särskilt stort.
      Vilken budget?
      Inspelningsprogram kommer i alla möjliga prisklasser. Har du inte så mycket pengar att spendera är Reaper kanon, som kostar 60 dollar efter en testperiod på 60 dagar. Det finns även gratisprogram som exempelvis Tracktion. De flesta erbjuder också begränsade versioner som inte har alla funktioner, men som är billigare och räcker långt.
      Har du planer på att spela live?
      Om du planerar att framföra musik live rekommenderar jag varmt Ableton Live. Som namnet antyder gjordes Ableton Live från början som ett verktyg för DJ:ar och musiker att framföra elektronisk musik just live, men är nu även ett kraftfullt musikproduktionsprogram.
      Samarbeten
      Det går ofta snabbt och smidigt att dela projekt med andra som jobbar i samma verktyg. Har du planer på att samarbeta med andra kan det vara värt att välja det program som personer i din bekantskapskrets använder. Dessutom kan det även vara skönt att ha någon att ställa frågor till. Tutorials och manualer i all ära men ibland är det skönt att få svar direkt.
      Hur ser ditt arbetsflöde ut?
      Har du en tydlig vision av musiken du skapar eller vill du ha möjlighet att testa dig fram och experimentera under resans gång? Med program som Ableton Live och Bitwig är det möjligt att jobba cirkulärt, vilket innebär att du inte följer en tidslinje utan fritt kan trigga igång loopar i olika kombinationer, ett arbetssätt som lämpar sig väl för att testa nya ideér.
      Hur viktiga är ljuden?
      Kommer du främst att använda de mjukvaruinstrument och samplingar som kommer med programmet snarare än att spela in externa instrument? De flesta inspelningsprogram kan du prova på gratis under en period. Ladda ner det verktyg du är sugen på och kolla så att du är nöjd med de ljud som kommer med. Bland andra kommer Reason och Logic Pro X med stora samplingsbibliotek.
      Vilken dator?
      De flesta inspelningsprogram fungerar både till Mac och pc, men det finns undantag. Logic funkar bara med macOS och Sonar bara med Windows – dubbelkolla så ditt inspelningsprogram och dator funkar ihop.
      Slutligen – alla inspelningsprogram gör i princip samma sak och låter likadant. Det som skiljer dem åt är arbetsflödet, utseende och i viss mån vilken hård- och mjukvara som kan användas. Det viktigaste är inte vilket inspelningsprogram du väljer utan att du lägger tid på att bli dess bästa kompis.

      AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands, May 19, 2020. FabFilter is proud to announce immediate availability of FabFilter Saturn 2, a major update to their award-winning multiband distortion and saturation plug-in. Saturn 2 sees a top-to-bottom redesign of the Saturn interface for even greater ease of use and visualization, as well as a host of new features and improvements, including 12 new distortion styles, a radically overhauled and expanded modulation system, enhanced envelopes, linear phase processing, and a pristine new ‘Superb’ High Quality mode.

      Beautiful new interface with modulation visualization
      Saturn 2 looks better and flows faster than ever. The darker color scheme makes the plug-in easier to look at for extended sessions, and four interface size options and a stunning full-screen mode enable adaptation to any workspace. Modulation is now comprehensively visualized at both source and target, too, with color-coded collars and tracks on knobs and sliders animating in response to modulation input, the source flow area giving an eye-catching overview of all mod signals, and indicators on controls and bands showing which parameters are being modulated at a glance.
      More distortion types
      Saturn 2 almost doubles the number of distortion styles on board from 16 to 28. ‘Subtle’ versions of the Tape, Tube, and Saturation styles provide low-intensity warming, while four new British (Rock, Pop) and American (Tweed, Plexi) Amp styles perfectly model well-known guitar amplifiers, three Transformer styles (Subtle, Gentle, Warm) open up abrasive new possibilities, and the Foldback and Breakdown FX styles reshape and mutate sounds beyond recognition, the latter combining down-pitching with heavy distortion.
      Big modulation changes
      With virtually no limit placed on the combination of 16-step XLFOs, Envelope Generators, Envelope Followers, XY Controllers, and MIDI sources that can be used in a preset, Saturn has always been serious about creative modulation, and Saturn 2 takes the whole system to the next level. Curve the Envelope Generator’s Attack, Decay, and Release stages for a smoother or more aggressive response, activate the Envelope Follower’s new Transient detection mode to tightly track drums and percussion, and route discrete band inputs to both Envelope sources as triggering signals — pulverize hi-hats to the rhythm of the kick drum, for example. The XY Controller’s new Slider mode, meanwhile, slims it down to vertical-only operation, and the XLFO benefits from legato MIDI triggering and targeting of the Frequency Offset and Balance parameters for modulation. And with custom naming of individual mod sources now possible, users can customize their Saturn 2 presets for effortless navigation.
      Mastering grade saturation
      The new ‘Subtle’ saturation types make Saturn 2 the mastering engineer’s secret weapon, bringing enlivening presence and fizz to final mixes. In order to meet the exacting demands of such mission- critical application, the band crossovers now offer a choice of 6, 12, 24, 36, and 48 dB/octave roll-off slopes, the new ‘Superb’ High Quality mode switches the plug-in to 32x oversampling for almost total elimination of aliasing, and the Linear Phase option ensures maximum coherence for the crossovers and High Quality modes.
      Key features:
      • 28 diverse distortion styles, from warming tube and tape saturation to screaming American and British guitar amps, Transformers, bit crushing, smearing, rectification, and more
      • Up to six separate processing bands, with variable crossover slopes: 6, 12, 24, 36, and 48 dB/octave
      • Independent Drive, Mix, Feedback, Dynamics, Tone, and Level controls for every band
      • Two High Quality modes for 8x and 32x oversampling
      • Regular stereo and mid/side processing
      • Intuitive interactive multiband display
      • Powerful, flexible modulation system: drag and drop as many 16-step XLFOs, XY Controllers, Envelope Generators, Envelope Followers, Sliders, and MIDI Sources as required
      • Full visual feedback of modulation via parameter animation and ‘source flow’
      • Linear phase mode for mastering applications
      • Four interface size options and full-screen mode
      • Carefully curated factory preset library for amp modeling, coloration, lo-fi degradation, and FX
      • All the usual FabFilter features users have come to expect: perfectly fine-tuned knobs and controllers, interactive MIDI Learn, undo/redo and A/B switch, Smart Parameter Interpolation for smooth parameter transitions, an extensive help file with interactive help hints, sample accurate automation, SSE optimization, and more
      FabFilter Saturn 2 is now available for EUR 129, USD 154 or GBP 114, supporting both Windows and macOS in VST and VST 3, Audio Units, AAX, and AudioSuite plug-in formats. Bundles with FabFilter Saturn 2 and other FabFilter plug-ins are also available at: www.fabfilter.com/shop
      Existing FabFilter customers can purchase or upgrade to FabFilter Saturn 2 with very attractive discounts by logging into their online user account: www.fabfilter.com/myaccount
