D16 Group Total Bundle

Complete Collection by D16 Group

Description


16 Appreciated Plug-ins Available in this Total Bundle

This compact, intuitive reverb plugin creates amazingly authentic real-world spaces without bogging you down in complex parameters.

The hybrid algorithm at the heart of Spacerek fuses modelled virtual spaces to a dynamic delay network, generating reverb tails with supremely realistic early reflections, dense, colourful late reflections, and separately adjustable ER and LR pre-delay times. Dozens of emulated room types take in halls, towers, chambers, tunnels and much more, and each one integrates a variety of preset stereo microphone and speaker setups. 

Spacerek also makes balancing the Direct signal, Early reflections and Late reflections easy with its three-channel mixer; while the highly musical Tilt EQ and Low Cut filter modules provide effortless shaping of the overall tail. And as each Reverb Model is pre-configured for left-right or mid-side stereo operation, tweaking width and spatialisation is a snap.

The Virtual Space Reverb

Early reflections are generated through painstakingly accurate simulation of a diverse range of real-world spaces, and the positioning of speakers and microphones within them.

Hybrid Algorithm for Quality and Performance

A dynamic delay network defines the Late reflections, blending seamlessly with the Virtual Space simulation to create super-realistic rooms, at surprisingly low cost to your CPU.

114 Stunning Reverb Models

Choose from dozens of room types, each with multiple microphone and speaker configurations for extensive mixing flexibility and sonic control.

Convenient Mixer

Effortlessly balance the direct signal, early reflections and late reflections using a simple three-channel mixer.

Tilt EQ and Low Cut filter

Sit your reverb perfectly in the mix with the musical Tilt EQ and mid-side-compatible Low Cut filter.

Learn more about Spacerek.

The Swiss army knife of modulation effects

The most powerful modulation effect D16 group has ever created, Godfazer is your new go-to plugin for chorus, phasing, filtering, rotary speaker emulation and much more. Built with creative sound design at the top of the agenda, Godfazer spatially and spectrally transforms signals of all kinds with its versatile Ensemble module and two dual-modulated Multi Filters.

Vintage devices and more

Godfazer’s Ensemble section offers a wide range of delay- and amplitude-modulating vintage device emulations, including BBD-based choruses, Solina-style ensembles and rotary speakers, as well as a variety of original tremolos, auto-panners and other models. But that’s only the beginning! Alongside the Ensemble, two identical Multi Filters each feature 40 spectacularly diverse filter types, from dual shelving EQs, low/high/band-pass models and formant filters, to an extensive selection of vintage and modern phasers.

Powerful modulation

Bringing movement and dynamism to the Multi Filters, Godfazer’s dual Modulators each enable one of four styles of cutoff/center frequency modulation to be brought into play. Apply static offset to the left and right channels with the Constant Modulator; get things wobbling with the tempo-syncable, pannable, phase-adjustable LFO; generate a modulation signal based on input amplitude with the envelope Follower, and hand craft your own synced or free-running cyclical progressions with the 16-step Step sequencer.

Freedom of routing

Both Modulators are routed independently to each Multi Filter, for truly complex signal blending, and the polarity of every input can be inverted at a click. The Multi Filters themselves are configurable for parallel or serial signal flow using six topology options, which also determine the position of the Ensemble within the chain.

... Of course, Godfazer also includes all the standard features of the SilverLine plugin series, including 64-bit internal processing, three quality options for real-time playback and offline rendering, a resizable GUI, and a tagged preset browser. From enhancing beats, thickening basslines and glamorizing vocals, to animating pads and bringing life to keys and FX, no modulation-based task is beyond its sonic remit.

Learn more about Godfazer.

Enter the Delay Matrix

Tekturon is a multitap-delay effect with 16 independent, high-quality delay lines. What really sets it apart from other, similar products, however, is the way it’s controlled and the unique topology into which the taps are arranged: The Delay Matrix. In fact, Tekuron can't be thought of as a tap-delay effect in the strictest sense, but more of a sequence of taps equally delayed from each other, whereby working with the plugin strongly resembles using a step sequencer. This rather unusual design should give your creativity just the kick it needs!

Inspired by Ergonomics

Each and every aspect of the plugin’s workflow is presented in a visually clear and intuitive way, allowing for quick and precise control of every facet of the device, as well as the ability to easily tame all 16 delay lines it contains with global controls. The ability to visually grasp the entire layout with minimal effort allows you to achieve even the most complex results with extraordinary speed.

LuSH-101 is a synthesizer created from modules that can be found in many modern virtual synthesizers, all combined into a single compact and logically intuitive design. However, this basic simplicity combined with its multilayer architecture turns it into an easy-to-use but extremely powerful instrument that can be programmed and tweaked quickly, almost effortlessly leveraging its maximum potential.

The multilayer architecture guarantees that both the sound design possibilities and number of unique situations in which LuSH-101 can be used, are virtually limitless. Layered sounds can be created simply by assigning the layers to the same MIDI channel; the results can sound as massive as anything imaginable! Assigning the layers to different keyboard zones allows you to create even the most sophisticated splits. Of course, you can always assign the various layers to different MIDI channels for 8-part multitimbral usage. And, virtually any combination of splits, layers, and multitimbrality is possible with just a single instance of LuSH. With each layer working as an independent synthesizer with its own polyphony, parameters, enhanced arpeggiator, and a palette of only the finest insert effects, LuSH-101 can push your creativity to unprecedented levels!

Want to express yourself even more? In addition to a very sophisticated MIDI-learn implementation, an advanced modulation matrix is built into each layer. Even the Arpeggiator's MIDI output can be used as a modulation source, unleashing your creativity to build complex sequences and progressions.

LuSH also comes complete with a powerful built in mixer, complete with layer-independent parametric equalizers and compressors. Three send effects in superb quality allow you to put the finishing touches on the final output.

LuSH plays perfectly in any genre. For funkier styles, the Gate may be used instead of the VCA for instant staccato sounds full of energy and rhythmic pep. When creating Ambient or Chillout, longer attack and release times along with the smooth, rich spaciousness of the built-in reverb are enough to satisfy even the most ardent purists. Is Dubstep or Drum & Bass more your thing? No problem! Filters modulated by the LFOs and envelopes in conjunction with Unison mode can lead to the sickest, nastiest, and most novel vibrations - your sound system won't know what hit it (and you won't, either), so watch out! No matter what you want to play or how you want to use it, LuSH will get the job done.

Synthesis

Nepheton contains 17 fully synthesized instruments perfectly emulating the famous 808 drum machine. All the nuances and details of the instruments sounds are captured perfectly. The instruments models are equipped with additional controls giving you possibility to tweak the sound much better. Listen to the audio examples or just download the demo and try it out.

Outputs

Nepheton has a flexible output configuration. Every instrument's audio signal can be routed to any of the 17 outputs. This allows users to further shape sounds individually or in groups via their favourite plug-ins.
Each individual output can be set to mono or stereo. For the greatest 808 fans we've added also original Trigger output (configurable as well).

Every instrument also has a Mute, Solo button and Activity led. Mute will not just silence the sound, it will stop the sound being triggered. Solo will stop all other instruments from being triggered and only allow the selected sound(s) to play.

Control

Nepheton has extensive midi control. Midi notes can be used to trigger each individual sound. Alternatively, the internal sequencer can be used. This can be set to play using Nepheton's internal clock or set to synchronize perfectly to the host sequencer.

Most of Nepheton's parameters can be automated within the host and also controlled using MidiCC with an external controller. An easy-to-use Midi Learn function allows reassignment of any of the parameters.

Internal Sequencer

Internal sequencer's memory contains two banks of patterns: simple and extended. There is 16 extended and 96 simple patterns which both can be edited traditionally using the step buttons or using the tap function.

Simple patterns are used in Host Mode where each pattern location has a midi note number assigned to it. With these notes you can control freely the order of played patterns.
Extended pattern differs from the simple one in it has 4 segments (variation A/B and part 1/2). The whole bank of 16 extended patterns is divided into two groups of Basic Patterns and Intro/Fill In Patterns. You can choose freely from played patterns, used variations, and fill in modes (triggered automatically or manually). It also can be defined whether the starting pattern should be preceded by introduction pattern and many many more. Extended patterns are used when Host Mode is off.

A Randomizer function is also provided within the internal sequencer. It can be used to make simple changes to a pattern or create a whole new one - ideal when your creativity needs a boost! Randomizing can be applied to specific instruments and the frequency of occurrence can also be adjusted easily to give you just the right amount.

An easy-to-use Midi Learn function allows reassignment of any of the parameters.

Internal Sequencer

Within the internal sequencer, patterns are stored in 8 banks. Each bank can store up to 12 patterns. Each pattern consists of 16 steps. Each pattern location has a midi note number assigned to it. The patterns can be edited traditionally using the step buttons or using the tap function.

The internal sequencer has various modes of operation. In Chain Mode, a range of patterns are selected from the internal banks and are played through in a circular fashion. Patterns can also be triggered freely by selecting the corresponding midi note (for example, from a midi controller keyboard). External controllers can be used in any mode to provide full control over pattern playback.

A Randomizer function is also provided within the internal sequencer. It can be used to make simple changes to a pattern or create a whole new one - ideal when your creativity needs a boost! Randomizing can be applied to specific instruments and specific steps. The frequency of occurrence can also be adjusted to give you just the right amount.

Files are stored in the XML format. This allows single patterns or whole banks to be exchanged between users easily. XML allows the files to be edited in a text editor. Ideal if you want to post or share a pattern on a web site - just post the text!

Presets

The settings for each instrument can be stored in it's own preset. Each instrument preset can be loaded in individually. This allows maximum flexibility when putting kits of instruments together. A dedicated Preset Manager is provided to help the user manage the sounds within their own unique library.

Nithonat is a fully synthesized drum machine based on the classic 606. The unique sound of this machine has been used by many artists over the years in the production of Electro, Hip-Hop and Rnb. The original 606 has been perfectly emulated. However, since Nithonat is software based, D16 were able to enhance the original with extra functionality.

Full control over the sound

On the original 606, the only editable sound parameter was volume. D16 have added to the original and as a result, Nithonat is equipped with extra controls which allow each sound to be shaped in ways which were not possible in the original machine.
A whole spectrum of sounds is now at you fingertips ? rumbling kicks, rustling snares and completely synthesized and unnatural sounding toms and hi-hats.

For the first time since the 80s, it is now possible to hear what the analog synthesis of the 606 is truly capable off!

One of a kind

Nithonat was designed completely from the ground up. Its synthesis is special ? even when compared to Nephetonís. It has very unique and characteristic hi-hat and cymbal sounds which are due to the emulated structure of the circuits in the original. The bass drum has unparalleled attack character and strong punch. The snare sounds sandy.

These unique attributes guarantee that our 606 is not a sub-standard 808 but is a great instrument with a unique timbre which will bring an old school feel to any track it is used on.

New dimension of creativity

Nithonat has a powerful built-in internal sequencer. The tracks can be edited in a very simple and intuitive way and modified with many useful functions. The clear GUI means that sequencer is very easy to use.

In addition to having many internal sequencer modes, Nithonat can also be used as a sound module. All sounds and functions within Nithonat can be controlled from a host sequencer.  Experimenting with Nithonat can give interesting and unexpected results. Operation of Nithonat is very similar to Drumazon and Nepheton ? having knowledge of these will mean that using Nithonat will not require much manual reading!

The Delay is the ultimate creative tool for adding space, depth, and excitement to music.

There have been many incredible delay units created over the past 70 years, from tape delays to oil cans to modern digital circuits. So when D16 Group and their friends at Slate Digital got together to create a new delay plugin, it was obvious which we would model: all of them!

Two is better than one

At first glance, Repeater appears to be your typical stereo delay effect processor with independent control of the processing path for the left and right channels. In actuality, it features independent re-panning and dry/wet mixing for each of two stereo channels, which makes it a very flexible double delay line effect. You'll be surprised and delighted by all the capabilities this approach can offer over the typical, fixed-panned one.

A Legendary Flanger Resurrected

In bringing the classic stomp box back to life, we’ve created a must-have effect plugin that will appeal not only to performing guitarists, but to instrumentalists and producers of virtually any genre: whether it’s rock guitar riffs or melodic synth lines you’re into, you’ll find that the extreme attention to sonic detail coupled with the flexibility afforded by modern technology in Antresol make it the perfect example of what a flanger should be in the modern era. The original, conceived in the mid-70s, quickly became a benchmark for flanger-type effects by offering a uniquely rich character defined by luxuriously harmonious interacting resonances, and has been heard ever since on countless classic recordings. That’s why D16 couldn’t resist the opportunity to resurrect the soul of this classic in a thoroughly modern incarnation with Antresol, our newest effect in the SilverLine Collection!

Loaded with features way beyond the original

Antresol's users can also enjoy absolute freedom of control over every aspect of the BBD-based delay line (including such nuances as calibration of the linearity of the clocking system or the number of analog memory cells constituting the backbone of the BBD). Fashioning a flanger sound that is uniquely you yet retains all the richness and warmth afforded by the original, classic circuit design has never been easier!

In addition to the standard parameter knobs found on the face of the original unit, there is also a wide range of deeper parameters available to tweak, such the on-PCB trimpots which would normally be inaccessible without taking the stompbox apart. Some even go far beyond those you could find in common flanger-type effects: a fully controllable LFO (with adjustable phase and rate sync to a host application’s tempo); the ability to delink the stereo channels and control the most important parameters independently for left and right (or mid/side, depending on selected mode), and more. Try the demo today and see where your imagination takes you!

True BBD emulation with Total control

An exceptionally accurate emulation of an impulse-controlled, solid-state analog delay line (a Bucket Brigade Device) is responsible for the impeccable sonic characteristics found in Antresol. Effects based on high-quality BBD emulations stand out with remarkable, even seductive warmth, and we have no doubt that the tremendous success of D16’s first foray into BBD delay line emulation, the chorus plugin Syntorus 2, has been directly attributable to this approach.

The key element around which Antresol is designed, an analog BBD integrated circuit, proved to offer some unique challenges for a digital emulation of this type. In particular, the feedback parameter showed some weaknesses in the form of improper shapes of emerging peaks and notches in the frequency response, forcing us back to the drawing board. After much R&D, our Eureka moment came in the form of a much-refined BBD emulation using quasi-analog signal representation throughout, guaranteeing behavior much more akin to the original, physical circuit. While a bit chaotic, it includes all the benefits and subtleties the analog domain can offer—unlike a deterministic, classically digital algorithm—and all this without any unwanted artifacts such as aliasing (something we always take great pains to minimize)… and all with the rock-solid stability only digital can offer!

Sigmund is far from just another delay: it consists of four discrete delay units, each with its own, independent set of parameters offering an incredible degree of sound-shaping freedom. There's an ancient saying, often attributed to Aristotle: The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. With Sigmund, this is especially true: each of the delay lines has complementary modules built in, independent from the feedback loop:

  • Multi-mode Filter (can work either in or outside of the feedback loop)
  • Overdrive module
  • Amplitude modulator (for tremolo effects)

But that's not all: Sigmund has two general-purpose LFOs which can be used to auto-modulate some of the delay lines' internal parameters. Used subtly, these LFOs can be used to delicately bring a sound to life, to add gently flowing, modulated warmth reminiscent of the analog delays of yesteryear. At extreme settings, these LFOs are capable of twisting the input signal utterly beyond recognition and into what you might expect transmissions from an alien civilization to sound like! 

This all adds up to an immensely powerful architecture, the potential of which can be explored nearly endlessly and often with hardly predictable outcomes.

Flexible Routing

Sigmund's four delay lines can be interconnected with each other in practically every manner possible. The plugin offers a choice of nine different routing topologies which give access to completely new dimensions of sound creation. For example, say you have your delays currently running in parallel but would like to have a cascade of serially connected delays instead: you can reconfigure them instantly by choosing your desired algorithm with just a click of the mouse. For even greater convenience when working with Sigmund, the output signals of each of the four delay lines are combined in a special, purpose-built internal mixer to ensure seamless transition between algorithms and greatly speed workflows.

Oustanding Quality

The signal processing solutions we chose to implement in Sigmund have allowed us to achieve an unprecedented level of audio quality! A signal being routed sequentially through each processing block suffers no loss in fidelity from one to the next and no undesirable artifacts are introduced as is so often the case with some of the more widely used but inferior solutions. With Sigmund, each delay line is absolutely alias free: the only sonic colorations you'll ever hear are the ones you've intentionally created.

The signal path design process that went into Sigmund has been zero-comprimise from beginning to end: in fact, the sound quality is so high, the processing so pure that it's possible to work with even the smallest delay times, even down to one-tenth of one millisecond with zero artifacts emerging. Thus, it's possible without any tricks or half-measures to use a single delay line not only as a traditional delay effect, but also as a chorus or flanger and in some of the highest audio quality theoretically possible!

With so many chorus effect plugins on the market, finding one capable of delivering a truly authentic analogue sound is easier said than done.

With that in mind, D16 Group set out to create the ultimate analogue chorus emulation, inspired by the revered effects found in classic synthesizers such as the Solina String Ensemble, Elka Synthex and Roland Juno-106. This fruit of their labour is Syntorus 2, the newest addition to the Silver Line series of plugins.

Syntorus 2’s unique analogue sound enriches any instrument routed into it, bringing life and movement to synth basses and leads, and adding depth and lushness to guitars and other electric/acoustic instruments.

The concept algorithm implemented in the unit allows to create practically ANY type of reverb.

When creating Toraverb, we did not base it on any current reverb unit available in the market. We did not implement any "off-the-shelf" algorithm. Toraverb is not a classic type reverb unit like spring, room, hall or plate. Toraverb is a concept algorithm reverb. Using a set of easily accessible parameters, it allows the user to create practically ANY type of reverb. Our goal was to create a reverb which would sound pleasant to the listener and the output could be tweaked in many ways by the user.

Reverb is a critical effect in a mix. Result depends on the reverb algorithm used and the quality of the implementation. Usually reverb is used as a send effect in which many channels in a mix are routed to it. If a low-quality plug-in or hardware unit is used, the end results can sound very disappointing with the reverb tail sounding like it had been “ripped-off” in the mix.

Decimort recreates the colouration and adds the vintage sampler's magic to any sound.

Electronic music (especially Hip-Hop) producers have long been aware that classic samplers (such as early Akai and E-MU units) had a character and sound all their own: they added a "grit" and "color" to the samples and loops they played back which made them sound "fat" and sit well in a mix. This sound coloration was due to the encoding techniques, lower sample rate and bit depth, and conversion circuits used by these early samplers. Decimort recreates this coloration and adds that vintage sampler magic back to any loop, any bassline, or any sound played through it for that matter! Beyond vintage sampler emulation, it’s also the perfect bit-crusher with filter, capable of extreme settings for dramatic results.

The highest quality low-quality effect you can buy

While this tagline may seem like an oxymoron on the surface, allow us to explain: the Decimort effect unit (available as part of the SilverLine collection of plugins from D16) is a premium grade bit crusher and sample rate reducer with some highly unconventional features. The advanced signal processing algorithms within Decimort simulate the complex behavior of the entire sampling path that exists in every AD/DA converter, and with version 2 comes far greater control over the process!

Decimort has zero internal aliasing—in fact, the only aliasing present is the emulated aliasing of the classic samplers we modeled when creating it. Unwelcome artefacts are completely absent in the processed signal: only the desirable, modeled ones remain.

More control than any other effect of this type

Decimort isn’t just another bitcrusher with only bit resolution and sampling frequency to tweak; in fact, it provides far more advanced features than you likely could have ever expected from an effect of this kind, all implemented in stunning quality:

  • Two optional anti-alias filters - A very steep low-pass pre filter (Approximative Filter) coupled with the resampling frequency that removes all harmonic content above it, ensuring no aliasing will appear below this frequency in the spectrum. A further post filter (Image filter), also synchronized with the resampler, gives control over amount of aliasing images appearing above resampling frequency when enabled.
  • Adjustable Jitter - An unprecedented feature in the bit crusher’s world which introduces short-period, random fluctuations to the resampling frequency, thus making the process even more sonically interesting by producing a type of harmonic distortion you’ve likely never heard in this context.
  • Two quantization methods - Two available quantization methods; the mid-raiser and mid-tread decimation algorithms, each of them characterized by a drastically different dynamics response.
  • Controllable dithering - Dithering was conceptually developed as means to reduce audible quantization errors by masking the harmonic distortions they cause. We added controllable dithering to increase number of ways in which you can (mal)treat the sound.

All this adds up to a very powerful and musical tool which is not only another creativity-releasing item for your arsenal, but one that gives you the ability to emulate classic sampling units in-the-box—now with even greater precision through access to a variety of parameters unavailable up till now in effects of this type!

Vintage Tube Distortion effect

Precisely modeled tube distortion module capturing the sensitivity, warmth, and character of real tube saturation and analog circuits. NEW With refined emulation.

Parametric EQ

4 Band fully parametric equalizer provides unparalleled control over your overdriven and distorted tones.

Independent stereo processing

Redoptor accurately emulates the sonic signature of a classic high-gain guitar amplifier while offering the flexibility of a modern stereo signal path.

Dynamics under control

A compressor before the gain stage lets you shape the tube circuit’s response, and a master output limiter tames your fierce distorted levels.

Overview

Redoptor is a high quality Vintage Tube Distortion emulator

The organic sound of a tube amplifier being pushed into breakup has been the gold standard for overdriven and distorted tones for as long as musicians have been intentionally distorting their signals.

The gentle natural compression and rich blend of even and odd harmonics produced by analog tube circuitry make any effected signal feel more powerful, punchy, and alive.

Unlike solid-state transistor and fuzz circuits which only produce odd harmonics and limit the incoming signal in an unnatural and unresponsive way, Redoptor smoothly and dynamically responds to the changes in volume of incoming audio, just like a real tube amplifier. This means that louder sounds are saturated with more crunch and delicious harmonics, while softer and naturally decaying sounds clean up gradually. This creates a very sonically pleasing distortion.

Fazortan 2 is the new incarnation of Controllable Space Phaser which is part of our SilverLine Collection. No need to say we didnt cut much corners on quality and that robust, yearned by all - analog feel of the sound. Total control over the Phase shifter provides you with adjustability and allows to obtain the desired contour with high precision. Have you ever wondered where does that unique magical breeze so audible in most of Jean Michael Jarre's tunes come from. Surprisingly the backbone here isn't the synth itself but the effect unit coupled with the synthesizer, saying more precisely - analog phaser of which our Fazortan 2 seems to be a fine equivalent. Thanks to the analog modelling technique we were able to implement allpass filters comprising characteristics identical to its analog counterpart based on Operational Transconductance Amplifiers. Now in version 2 we're even closer to the sound character the original hardware unit brings.

You can think about Fazortan 2 as of the exact copy of a retro phaser taken out from 70's and redone to become a virtual unit. But being the same sounding unit that provides primal functionality and sound of the original is where similarities end and where limitless scope of plugin comes to play. Bearing on mind only one Rate knob and a Color switch on the front panel of the real phaser device, Fazortan 2 from the first look at its GUI, presents itself as a completely new device that effectivelly expands capabilities of its origin.

Structure

Full control over two LFOs (waveform, rate and depth) controlling the unit and unlike the hardware unit Fazortan 2 LFO works in various waveform modes: sinus, triangle, hyper-triangle and random (i.e. only triangle is available in original).

By using both LFOs simultaneously you're now able to obtain the result that owners of the hardware box could only dream about. Endless countour diversity stretches results from monotonius sluggish swing to become a gurgling scrumble, just by a slight repositioning of the rate knob. Additionally, it is now possible to add consecutive allpass stages as well as regulate the feedback effect. The amount of stages translates on how many humps and pits residues in the converted sound spectrum while feedback parameter value implies severity of these irregularities. Feedback knob gives you sounds from soft to rapid and drilling. To visually display how it works consider a white noise as an input signal. Moving the feedback knob will start to morph incoming "sea waves" reminiscent noise into "windy" whizz. Additionally, each lfo can be modified by altering its respective phase giving, as a result, an improved panning of the incoming signal.

The sweet spot in distortion domain

Devastor 2 is the second generation of D16’s first FX Plugin from the SilverLine Collection series. Devastor is a deceptively simple yet remarkable Multiband Distortion Unit. It is an enhanced version of the distortion unit you can find in Phoscyon, but with full control over multiband processing. This elevates its sonic mangling capabilities to an entirely new level!

Structure

The plug-in consists of four essential blocks:

  • Dynamics-flattener module (one-knob controlled input signal compressor)
  • Diode-clipper distortion
  • Three multi-mode filter sections
  • Optionally activated signal limiter

The plug-in offers nine different connection topologies between its filters and diode-clipper. Filters can process the signal before or after it gets fed into the diode-clipper, but some of the configurations even allow the filters to work alongside the clipper, which greatly increases the possible sonic palette.

Devastor’s filters are not simply the peaking EQ type which are commonly used in classic multiband distortion units: rather, they are like those found in analog synthesizers (low pass, high pass, band pass and band reject) with adjustable resonance and cutoff parameters. As a result, Devastor has a completely unique sound. Just check out the factory content and hear for yourself!

Versatile and advanced

Devastor can be used to distort and enhance a wide range of sounds, from full-on acid synth sounds to guitar fuzz or an analog amp with speaker combo. It can even be used with drums to make them sound dirtier and more dynamic! Devastor isn't just good at creating distorted, monster sounds: it can also be used subtly to improve the timbre and character of gentler sounds. For example, reducing the preamp gain, increasing the threshold, and selecting a soft-knee for the dynamics will bring out more warmth and detail in a sound without introducing distortion.

When designing Devastor, we applied special antialiasing techniques to the output signal to make sure it was devoid of aliasing (one of the reasons why digital distortion units can sound so cold and un-musical). As a result, Devastor has a warm, musical, and very high quality sound.

We would like to invite you to listen the audio examples to whet your appetite and to check out the demo version for yourself if you need any more convincing. Devastor uses algorithms of such high quality that you'd be forgiven in a blind test for wondering if the sound has somehow been sent from the computer to an external analog distortion unit and back into the computer again!

Pro-R

Natural Sound, Musical Controls

As one of the most used effects in the audio world, reverbs come in all forms and flavors. A great reverb sounds natural and sits in the mix perfectly. At the same time, it should not confuse you with over-technical controls, but must be easy to set up and a joy to work with. Enter FabFilter Pro-R.

Make Some Space

FabFilter Pro-R takes a musical approach to reverb, offering user-friendly, non-technical controls like Brightness, Character and Distance to achieve the reverb sound you are looking for — without requiring a degree in reverb science.
The stepless Space control lets you fade between dozens of different, carefully tuned room models, automatically choosing a matching decay time for a natural-sounding result.

Shape the Decay Time

The decay time of a real room often varies wildly over the frequency spectrum, which is one of the key ingredients of a room's reverb character. To simulate this, the industry-first Decay Rate EQ concept in FabFilter Pro-R offers completely free adjustment of the decay time over the frequency spectrum.
Since it uses parametric EQ bands instead of a traditional crossover system, it provides much more flexibility to shape the decay time characteristics. Together with the integrated 6-band Post-EQ, designing reverbs of any style or character has never been easier.

Pro-MB

Powerful and Intuitive

Multiband compression and expansion are powerful tools, but notoriously difficult to set up and control. Enter FabFilter Pro-MB: making multiband dynamics processing intuitive yet powerful at the same time.

A New Approach

Instead of conventionally splitting the entire spectrum with crossovers, Pro-MB enables you to directly create a new band at the frequency range you want to work on. Think bands, not crossovers!

The interactive multiband display clearly shows that the rest of the spectrum stays untouched. And if desired, you can easily snap bands together to recreate a traditional crossover system.

Lifesaver and Timesaver

FabFilter Pro-MB introduces a unique Dynamic Phase processing mode. It has virtually the same frequency response as traditional multiband processing, but doesn't introduce latency or pre-ringing, and only introduces minor phase changes when the gain actually changes. Of course, we have also included an excellent Linear Phase mode and a traditional Minimum Phase mode.

The powerful combination of high quality processing, optimized workflow using the interactive multiband display and all the expert features you need, makes Pro-MB both a lifesaver and timesaver!

FabFilter One

Amazing Oscillators, Unique Filters

For FabFilter One, we have put tremendous effort in creating the best cut-off filter ever. Our new design approach has resulted in the fattest and smoothest self-oscillating digital filter you have ever heard. It has been tuned carefully to achieve the character and warmth of a classic analog synthesizer. FabFilter One’s filter sounds raw but never cheap or ‘digital’, even at full resonance.

The filter is fed by an equally high-quality solid-sounding oscillator, developed from scratch to be completely aliasing-free. It features sawtooth, triangle, and square wave forms with pulse width modulation.

Simplon

Unique Filters, Easy Display

FabFilter Simplon is a simplified version of FabFilter Volcano 2 with two independent multimode filters providing low-pass, high-pass, and band-pass responses with 12/24/48 dB/octave slopes. The filters can be used in serial or parallel mode.

Originally developed for FabFilter One, Simplon's filters were designed from the ground up to be the fattest and smoothest self-oscillating digital filters possible. Simplon's filters sound raw but never cheap or ‘digital’, even at full resonance.

Each filter offers three different filter characteristics that define the unique sound and overdrive of the filter. They range from smooth filters with moderate overdrive to raw, self-oscillating over-the-top madness!

Micro

The Classic FabFilter Sound

With the introduction of FabFilter One in 2004, we set a new standard for digital filters... and it still stands today. Now you can get that classic FabFilter sound for a Micro price! With a single high-quality filter, FabFilter Micro is the ultimate lightweight filter plug-in.

FabFilter Micro's single filter is smooth and creamy, yet easily turns into raw saturation and self-oscillation when tweaked using the interactive filter display. It features low-pass and high-pass shapes and an envelope follower to modulate the cut-off frequency.

With the individual Input Gain and Output Gain parameters, you can fully control the saturation of the internal filter, making FabFilter Micro not only ideally suited for basic filtering tasks, but also capable of beautiful distortion and analog saturation effects.

Of course, you also get all the usual FabFilter goodies: perfectly tuned knobs, MIDI Learn, Smart Parameter Interpolation for smooth parameter transitions, extensive help with interactive help hints, AltiVec and SSE optimization, and much more!

Multiphonics CV-1 Modular Synthesizer - Dive Deep Into Sound

A playground for the exploration of sound and synthesis

  • Learn more about Chromaphone 3.

  • Objeq Delay
  • Beyond Traditions

  • Objeq Delay is a creative effect plug-in combining acoustic filtering with a clever delay unit. The plate, beam, drumhead, and string objects impart evocative acoustic resonances to the input signal. Further shaping is also available via low- and high-cut filters. The in-series delay acts as a classic unit or can split the first and subsequent repeats to either remodel the attack or create complex rhythmic patterns. An LFO module completes the package with comprehensive modulation destinations to the filter, resonator, and delay parameters. 

  • "Objeq delay is a truly creative and fun effect with multifaceted applications, " said Eric Thibeault, the product's designer, "Objeq Delay is obviously a great delay unit, but the complete feature set takes it to another level. The acoustic resonator is a great percussion track enhancer—it's fantastic on kicks and snares. The split between the first and subsequent echoes can mangle simple loops into new complex rhythms. The LFO allows various modulator-type effects such as flanger and chorus. And then when you bring it all together, a highly resonant object with the delay brings you into the drones territory."

Softube Volume 5 Plugin Bundle

Complete Collection by Softube



Images



Description


Outstanding Sound, Supreme Value

Softube Volume 5 Plug-in Collection, a hand-picked anthology of exceptional sounding tools, is a treasure trove of plug-ins available with huge savings over the list prices on the individual components. Volume 5 features four exquisitely crafted additions: the surgically precise Weiss EQ MP, Amp Room pro audio guitar and bass platform, Marshall Cabinet Collection expansion for Amp Room, and Statement Lead polyphonic synth. And they're just a taste of the wealth of high-quality gear that comprises the bundle.

All the top-notch plug-ins from the previous Volume editions are included in Volume 5. There are component-modelled analogue channel strips, compressors & limiters, EQs, effects, reverbs & delays, special processors, amp sims, and instruments that have been created in partnership with industry-leading brands like Summit Audio, Doepfer, Marshall, Drawmer, Trident, OTO, and Fix.

Volume 5 can easily and flawlessly address any studio need while ensuring that every aspect of the process—from composition through production, mixing, and mastering—is handled with the most brilliant sound quality available. An assortment of plug-in gems of this quality and value found in a single collection represents a truly rare opportunity.

Important Note: This is the full version of Softube Volume 5 Plugin Bundle. The following upgrades are also available:




Features

  • EQ with a will of its own.
  • Created together with original designer Professor Malcolm Toft.
  • Each and every component carefully modelled.
  • Saturation control.
  • Very CPU friendly.
  • Learn more about Trident A-Range.

  • TSAR-1 Reverb

  • The TSAR-1 Reverb is not an emulation. It's not a stock design. It's not a static snapshot of a space. The TSAR-1 is a powerful, modern reverb algorithm. It's alive and vibrant, it's gentle and dreamy, and above all - it's natural and believable. The TSAR-1 is the better-sounding alternative to the established, traditional reverb products. At a fraction of the price.

  • The True Stereo Algorithm inside the TSAR-1 is what gives it its magic. The strength lies in its sophisticated sound and versatility, no matter whether it's used on strings and brass or rock drums and lead vocals, it always shines. All this while still having a comprehensive and easy-to-use interface that is unparallelled in other high-end reverb products.

  • True Stereo Algorithm.
  • Extraordinary versatility.
  • Comprehensive user interface.
  • Modern and powerful high-end reverb.
  • Extensive preset library.
  • Predelay as a rhythmic effect or to carefully match the tail with the early reflections.
  • Time Longer or shorter reverb tail. Where do you want to go today?
  • Density Smooth, modern and dense, or sparse, lush and vintage.
  • Learn more about TSAR-1 Reverb.

  • TSAR-1R Reverb

  • TSAR-1R Reverb is the little sibling of the more adjustable TSAR-1 Reverb. They share exactly the same high-end reverb algorithm, but TSAR-1R offers extreme ease of use for a fast and intuitive workflow.

  • Essentially, TSAR-1R is operated with a single control - the Time slider. Add depth and dimension to any sound with short and controlled room sounds, or slide it up towards hall settings for large, dramatic spaces. It really is as easy as that, and it always sounds stellar.

  • Pre-delay - Perfect for getting that small gap between the vocals and the reverb tail.
  • Time - One fader to rule them all. Time control changes the Density, Diffusion, Early Reflections, Reverb Time, etc. Almost like a continuous swipe through all the best presets. 
  • Colour - Need a bright or a dark reverb?
  • True Stereo Algorithm - Same as in TSAR-1 Reverb.
  • Extremely easy to use.
  • Modern and powerful high-end Reverb.
  • Fast and easy, yet powerful. Apart from Mix and Volume, there are only three parameters in TSAR-1R. Don't let that fool you though, it has never before been this easy to dial in a great reverb sound.

  • Learn more about TSAR-1R Reverb.

  • A tasty echo effect that can go from clean to rude by overdriving its three modelled tube stages. Create anything from realistic room echoes to rockabilly style slap backs, or take it all the way into dub reggae echo madness.

  • A slightly dark and distorted delay has a way of giving a great sense of space and size to a mix without really drawing attention to itself. So that's where Softube's Tube Delay gets in the picture.

  • The controls are quite self-explanatory, but it's the sound that sets Tube Delay apart from any other delay you have tried. The drive knobs add a wonderfully dirty distortion and the tone controls are just sweet. There's actually three different tube stages in this model, each adding to the total sound. The tone controls are passive and add further to the distortion. Turn up the feedback while running, and you'll have the authentic dub echo madness! Softube of course added the possibility of tempo syncing the delay to your song.

  • 1-1000 ms delay
  • Sync tempo to host
  • Vintage style passive EQ
  • Gritty feedback feature
  • Tube preamp simulation
  • Learn more about Tube Delay.

  • Weiss MM-1 Mastering Maximizer

  • Based on the legendary Weiss DS1-MK3, the centrepiece of mastering studios the world over (and also now available as a Softube plug-in), the future of fast and professional mix maximizing is now here - the MM-1 Mastering Maximizer.

  • Featuring the very same algorithms as the original digital hardware unit, the MM-1 offers five flavours of limiting; Transparent, Loud, Punch, Wide, and De-ess; intelligently progressing as the ‘amount’ knob turns, and blendable with the mix control, to give users precisely the right amount of power over the feel of their masters.

  • Crucial to this plug-in is that it can’t sound bad - the intelligent processes happening under the hood as the amount knob turns; the filtering, compression, de-essing, and so on; have been carefully designed by highly experienced mastering engineers using the industry-standard DS1-MK3 as a foundation.

  • And there’s no better mastering limiter out there. This product allows users to get their mixes exactly as loud as they want, with exactly the sound they want, without sacrificing dynamics and musicality.

  • Simple interface controlling detailed expert mastering processes.
  • Five ‘flavours’ of limiting available.
  • Contains the very same technology as the legendary hardware mastering processor, the Weiss MM-1.
  • Fully licensed and endorsed by Daniel Weiss himself.
  • Great for maximizing your mix-bus quickly and effectively.
  • Go as loud as you want; louder than any other product out there; without sacrificing desirable tone and dynamics.
  • Impossible to get it wrong. Be the master of your own masters!

We pride ourselves on building simple, elegant effects that give you instant inspiration. But when you’re ready to go beyond the basics we also let you open the hood and get some grease on your hands.

Slide open an effect’s Tweak panel to access special circuit-level controls. Or design your own unique modulation patterns.

Many Soundtoys effects offer special Tweak panels which expose deeper editing features. Here you can find advanced options for a plug-in, like a choice of saturation styles, fine control of an effect’s groove, or a selection of different delay algorithms. Our modulation effects offer powerful shape and rhythm editors here for creating complex motion. And in Soundtoys 5, we’ve redesigned our Tweak panels to make advanced controls easier to find and use.  The result: an incredibly customizable set of sonic tools that you’ll want to use on every project.

Effects that move to your rhythm with any shape you can imagine...

An LFO (Low-Frequency Oscillator) is at the heart of every modulation effect — it’s what gives tremolos, phasers, panners and sweeping filters their characteristic motion.

Our included library of LFO shapes goes far beyond standard modulation effects, giving you curves based on vintage modulation effects, amps and instruments as well as more abstract shapes. You can also draw and sculpt your own totally customized shapes using our Shape Editor. Use it to dream up new LFO shapes, from knife-edged waves to gently ebbing curves.

Our Rhythm Editor is like a rhythmic modulation sequencer. Choose a length (in bars) and the size of the steps you want to edit (sixteenth notes, eighth notes, quarter notes, etc), then start clicking to make a new pattern. You can turn individual steps on and off to create pauses or rests, and adjust the level and length of each step to humanize your pattern and give it some musical variation. You can even choose the number of beats per bar to create some funky syncopation or odd-time-signature grooves. Like our custom shapes, custom patterns are even swappable between plug-ins. 

We look to the past for inspiration. But we build each of our plug-ins to stand solidly on its own with features designed for modern studios.

As a result, we’re happy to say that Soundtoys effects are used, trusted and recommended by professionals in all aspects of audio production.

  • BIAS Amp 2 Elite
  • Lush Reverbs

  • BIAS AMP 2 also includes nine built-in reverbs, ranging from huge halls to intimate rooms with full control over the character of the reverbs. Between the different reverb types and the extensive filtering and saturation options, BIAS AMP 2 has all your reverb needs covered.

  • New Amp Match

  • AMP Match can already match the tone of any mic’d reference amp, but we’ve made it even better in BIAS AMP 2: now matching a tone is as easy as importing an audio file! Not only that, if you aren’t all that familiar with dialing amps yourself you can ask AMP Match to guess the circuit for you. You’ll get faster and better results no matter what your skill level is, making it even easier to get to your ideal tone.

  • Enhanced Authenticity

  • AMP Match utilizes a collection of underlying technologies to analyze and compare your currently selected BIAS amp model and the sound of a target tube amplifier, including the speaker cabinet and microphone. It then executes the tonal compensation and enhancements needed to make your amp model’s sound accurately match that of the target tube amplifier.

  • 100 Amp Match Presets - Don't Sweat the Details

  • Even if you’re not interested in matching amps yourself, you can still take advantage of the power of AMP Match by connecting to the Positive Grid ToneCloud and enjoy 100 new custom AMP Match presets. There are thousands more from artists, recording studios and guitarists from around the world.

  • New Speaker IR’s From Celestion, And New Speaker Cabinet Module

  • For BIAS AMP 2 we partnered with Celestion, the king of speaker manufacturers, to give users access to the favourite impulse responses of top guitarists like Pete Thorn, Scott Henderson and George Lynch. Normal IR packs come with a mountain of files that are auditioned by loading them individually, but you can do all that work in BIAS AMP 2 simply by moving the virtual microphone on the speaker cabinet around. It makes using Celestion IR’s easier than on any other platform, and it’s not just a major time saver, it also allows you to stay in the creative mindset longer.

  • Studio engineers started recording guitar amps using multiple microphones as soon as they had the capability, and many Hall Of Fame guitar sounds were recorded using this technique. We’ve added this functionality to BIAS AMP 2, letting you use multiple microphones on the same cab and mix them together! Layering a dynamic 57 pointed at the dust cap (which picks up a ton of crispy treble and deep bass) with a 414 condenser aimed in between the dust cap and the speaker edge (which has less treble and more mids) results in a tone that is rounder and more full than either of those mics could produce by themselves. Now you can pull a solo out above the vocals or tuck a rhythm part behind the bass guitar just by tweaking the mic mixer.

  • The cabinet module also features brand new Open and Closed-back cabinet emulation, authentically recreating the distinctive bass and low mid frequency response that typifies each enclosure style. As a result, you have even more control over your core tone, allowing you to get even closer to iconic sounds with less effort.

  • New Dynamic Tone Engine

  • Pro Series Compressor

  • The World’s First Matching and Component Based Studio Plug-Ins

  • Over the past decade, professional effects plug-ins have been about authentic analog emulation of original hardware, with either a black-box approach or circuit analysis and emulation. This gives musicians an easy-to-use user interface and faithful reproduction of analog tone in the digital domain.

  • Looking forward, the question is how we can create new tools to maximize the sound quality and usability with today’s new technology, with faster processors and memory, matching analysis, advanced nonlinear processing, and a cloud-based worldwide community. What can we do better, smarter, and more efficient?

  • Positive Grid teamed up the world’s brightest DSP engineers and component level modeling and matching authorities, working with the world’s leading producers, world-class engineers, and mixing & mastering gurus to develop some breakthrough technologies to bring software plug-ins to the next level.

  • Matching Compressor

  • The world’s first and unique compression matching works by measuring the dynamic response, pre and post filters, nonlinear transformer characteristics, and attack, release, and ratio curves to capture the nuanced sound of any compressor.

  • It accurately recreates the underlying architecture of the best compressors in the world, with the most intuitive user interface ever in a desktop plug-in. Audio engineers and musicians will now have virtual access to a wide assortment of the best compressors in the world, no longer limited by the traditional plugin architecture.

  • Tube Compressor

  • Models classic analog tube compressor at component level to add richness and fullness to the overall sound. You can instantly feel the difference by changing the input and output tubes, capacitors and transformers. Change the tubes and you can add a different harmonic characteristic and warmth to the sound, while changing capacitors and transformers colors the sound and brings up the high and low end.

  • Optical Compressor

  • It provides a careful emulation of the original optical compressor now at component level: you can even change capacitors to enrich the overall sound. We even modeled the light source and detector behavior, so you can fine tune and get the perfect attack and release characteristics by changing the light source, light source age, light source sensitivity, attack, and release knob.

  • FET Compressor

  • It captures the authentic sound and feel of the classic FET studio compressor thanks to its extremely accurate matching technology. At component level, it catches the peak very and applies compression with a very fast attack time, release time and look ahead function. It also filters out the low-end and high-end in its detector, so you can control the frequency range you want to trigger in the compression.

  • More Models…

  • Positive Grid is currently working with mixing and mastering gurus and engineers to create professional compressor match models made from recordings in leading studios. Stay tuned, as more is coming.

  • 3 individual compressors: FET, Tube and Optical
  • Profiling Technology captures any real world analog compressor nuance

  • Pro Series EQ

  • The World’s First Matching and Component Based Studio Plug-Ins

  • Pro Series Plug-Ins

  • Over the past decade, professional effects plug-ins have been about authentic analog emulation of original hardware, with either a black-box approach or circuit analysis and emulation. This gives musicians an easy-to-use user interface and faithful reproduction of analog tone in the digital domain.

  • Looking forward, the question is how we can create new tools to maximize the sound quality and usability with today’s new technology, with faster processors and memory, matching analysis, advanced nonlinear processing, and a cloud-based worldwide community. What can we do better, smarter, and more efficient?

  • Positive Grid teamed up the world’s brightest DSP engineers and component level modeling and matching authorities, working with the world’s leading producers, world-class engineers, and mixing & mastering gurus to develop some breakthrough technologies to bring software plug-ins to the next level.

  • The Pro Series EQ offers 3 revolutionary component based EQ: Digital, Tube, and Passive. It combines Positive Grid’s DSP engineering and component level modeling expertise.

  • Matching EQ

  • After years of research and development with the world’s best DSP engineers, we are proud to introduce a new way of EQ matching, one that truly recreates real world outboard analog equalizers – for the first time at component level. We used analog filters to match the frequency response for each EQ module: digital, tube, and passive EQ.

  • The EQ match works by analyzing the signal from the input track and side chain track – you can even see the frequency response of the matching process in real time. It then analyzes the difference curve between input and side chain, and automatically adjusts the controls to match the different curves.

  • The Pro Series EQ match process uses analog filters to match the frequency response difference, without adding post filters to compensate the frequency response difference. The end result is a more natural sound with real world analog sound characteristics.

  • Tube Equalizer

  • Loaded with 12AX7, 12AU7 and 12AT7 preamp tubes, the tube EQ captures the essence of analog EQ found in the best professional studios in the world, giving you the ultimate solution to add color and warmth to your recordings. It comes with low, mid, and high control panels so you can get a full frequency range control in one single EQ module.

  • Digital Equalizer

  • Provides the most clear and transparent digital EQ sound ever in a plug-in. With 5 bands plus high pass and low filter for each channel, its wide range control will give your mixes the necessary sound balance for professional use. You can also use the digital EQ module to shape your tracks tone without altering the output signal.

  • Passive Equalizer

  • With 3 band controls for each channel, the passive EQ module gives an authentic analog sounding EQ shaping for a more musical mix. You can use the available tube power amplifier emulation to add even more color to the output sound, and get that rich tone from real world tube amplifier EQ racks.

MSoundFactory

Complete Collection by MeldaProduction



Images



Description


MSoundFactory may well be the most powerful instrument out there. It's modular, so you can have any number of oscillators, filters, samplers etc. you want. It features per-voice and global modulation, full MPE support, the best sounding oscillators on the market, a fully modular effects engine... and Melda are just getting started...

MSoundFactory will most likely be a never-ending project. Melda are probably not going to make any further instruments, instead they are going to implement further modules and features into the mighty MSoundFactory. MSoundFactory currently comes with many presets converted from MPowerSynth and several fully-featured instruments, but it's far from being "ready". However, it can already be used by creative minds looking for an extremely powerful instrument. The only necessary module needed to be added to the first official release is a sampler, so please stay in tune.

Key Features

Advanced GUI

  • User interfaces need to be fast, simple to use and be easy on the eye. Everyone's needs can be different, so flexibility is important. Melda solves this with the most advanced GUI engine on the market.
  • Stylable: From vintage hardware to super futuristic. You can choose the colours and style of the GUI, making our plugins personal to you.
  • Resizable: All Melda plugins are freely resizable. Many also feature popup windows. So no matter how many screens you have or what size they are, you will be able to arrange your plugins to keep a focus on what is important.
  • GPU Accelerated: All the elements in the GUI are accelerated by your GPU. This makes the graphics lightning-fast and frees up extra power for your CPU to focus on the audio.
  • Stunning Quality: Melda plugins support HDPI and Retina displays, so you will experience beautiful crisp resolutions. With adjustable frames per second up to 100, you will not miss a thing in our detailed analyzers.

Unique Visualisation Engine with Classic Meters and Time Graphs

  • Your ears should always be the main tool, but they are not the only way to judge your audio. Visual aids can be incredibly useful for a variety of reasons. Melda's comprehensive metering system is extremely flexible and delivers you accurate information when you need it. From classic meters to time-based graphs, you will see important visual feedback including; Input, Output, Stereo width, Loudness, Waveforms, Bands, Gain reduction and Sidechain, and some plugin dependent meters.

Modulators

  • MSoundFactory provides 8 fully-featured modulators which can control any set of parameters including other modulators. Each modulator works as an LFO, level follower, midi/audio triggered ADSR enveloper, randomizer or pitch detector, or even a combination and can listen to the plugin\'s side-chain.
  • You can make the sound move in time, be less static and more interesting. You can make various parameters depend on the input (or the sidechain) level or even listen to the input pitch.

Adjustable Oscillator Shape Technology

  • Every oscillator in MSoundFactory uses the most versatile oscillator algorithm on the market. It provides a mix of predefined oscillator shapes, custom waveforms edited using our MeldaProduction Envelope System (MES), a step-sequencer and several methods for algorithmic postprocessing.
  • It also provides a harmonic mode, which lets you control the harmonic content instead of oscillator shape. This is especially useful for high-frequency oscillators.

Multiparameters

  • MSoundFactory lets you control multiple parameters using a single so-called multiparameter. This may not only come handy for automation for example, but the multiparameters are very smart units and you can use them to smartly morph between banks of settings for example. All in the name of creativity!

Smart Randomization

Melda's state of the art randomization system gives you complete control. You can randomize parameters in 3 ways:

  • Complete full randomization of everything.
  • Subtle small random changes to your current state.
  • Smart randomization.

Melda's smart randomization engine learns, using information based on existing presets to offer better values that will result in more successful changes. You can even lock certain parameters that you wish to be excluded from the randomization. This level of control can really help you out when you have a creative block and offer up fresh and inspiring ideas you may have never thought of.

Automatic Gain Compensation (AGC)

  • Most plugins change loudness of the output audio, which makes browsing presets inconvenient, not mentioning randomization. MSoundFactory includes automatic gain compensation, which quickly adapts to current settings and ensures the output sounds as loud as the input. This even protects you from thinking that something sounds better in cases it is just louder.

Safety Limiter

  • Some plugins can intensely increase gain when exposed to specific audio materials. MSoundFactory provides a safety brickwall limiter, which ensures the output stays below 0dB and prevents your equipment and your ears from potential danger automatically.

Sinc Interpolation

  • MSoundFactory implements the most advanced interpolation technology to provide the best audio quality.

Adjustable Up-sampling 1x-16x

  • Digital audio provides very superior audio quality compared to ancient analog gear, but there are problems too. The main problem is the aliasing, which may be noticeable, when using nonlinear processes such as compression or saturation. MSoundFactory includes both minimum-phase and high-quality linear-phase upsampling algorithms, which avoids the aliasing.

Synchronization to Host Tempo

  • Every oscillator and modulator in the plugin can automatically synchronize to the host. But it can be out-of-sync if you want of course.

MIDI Controllers with MIDI Learn

  • MSoundFactory contains a powerful MIDI processor, which listen to MIDI controllers and MIDI keyboard and control any parameters realtime.

64-bit Processing and an Unlimited Sampling Rate

  • MSoundFactory provides the maximum audio quality you can get. It uses 64-bit audio processing and can handle any sampling rate. It does not make much sense to go over 192kHz, but if you think it is a good idea, the plugin can do that.

Extremely Fast, Optimized for Newest AVX2 and AVX512 Capable Processors

  • Computers are now extremely fast, but the algorithms are more complex and projects bigger, so you still need to use the processing power with care. MSoundFactory uses the fastest algorithms, takes advantage of the newest processor capabilities, lets your GPU handle the graphics, and shares the resources with other MeldaProduction plugins. The plugin is among the fastest on the market, yet it provides the best possible audio quality.

Global Preset Management and Online Preset Exchange

  • MSoundFactory presets are carefully stored in a system database and you can quickly access them from any project in any host. The plugin can automatically share your presets and download presets of other users from our servers. Melda are building a community and you can be a part of it!

Compare Multiple Settings

  • A/B comparison is a widely used method to objectively hear the changes you are making to your audio and help you to make better decisions, non destructively.
  • A to H Switching: Melda has taken this to the next level. Have up to 8 instances of the plugin, copy/paste the A to H slots and freely switch between them.
  • A to D Morphing: You can also morph between the first 4 slots with an X-Y pad. Not sure which preset to choose? You could load 4 and find the perfect blend of all of them. Not sure if A or B sounds better? You might prefer an interpolated state somewhere between the two.

No Dongle nor Internet Access is Required for Activation

  • How many times did you forget your USB dongle? Melda are an honest company and expect the same from our customers. Our software uses licence files to activate your software. And the licences are to-person, so you can use it on all your computers as long as you are the user.

Free-for-life Updates

  • When you buy the software you are entitled to free updates, forever. No more money wasted on major updates like it is with other companies. And Melda update our software a lot!

String Studio VS-3

String Studio VS-3 is a multitimbral synthesizer in which a collection of unique string oscillators replaces the traditional VCOs, DCOs, and operators as the main sound source. Consisting of picks, bows, and hammers interacting with a modelled string, these oscillators offer a special blend of modern and creative synthesis. Augmented with a soundboard, classic filters, an enveloppe generator, a LFO, and studio-quality effects, String Studio VS-3 proposes a brand-new path in the quest for tone.

Instruments & Effects

Use your ears!

These instruments and effects are all included in Reason+. You can combine them any way you want in the Rack to create the perfect sound for what you want to express. Some of these may look complicated at first – but don’t worry. Nothing can break. Just use your ears and try stuff out!

Europa - Shapeshifting Synthesizer

A wavetable synth at heart; Europa is the most powerful, most modern and biggest sounding synth for your next track and the many more to come. The heart of Europa is its three spectral wave engines, where waveforms are loaded and warped through traditional wavetable sweeps and spectral waveform modifiers. Add to that a set of unique spectral filters, customizable envelopes, fantastic effects and more and you’ll be ready to realize that Europa isn’t just the greatest synth to arrive in Reason. It’s the greatest synth to arrive. Period.

Thor - Polysonic Synthesizer

Where other synths use one specific form of synthesis and one single filter, the Thor polysonic synthesizer features six different oscillator types and four unique filters. What does this give you? An unstoppable monster of a sound generator, Thor utilises synthesizer technology from the last 50 years. With its unique selection of oscillator types and filter designs, the Thor Polysonic Synthesizer is a veritable synth museum. But there’s nothing dusty about this instrument. Thor may have one foot in history, but its sound is pure future.

Monotone - Bass Synthesizer

For all the bass heads out there, here’s Monotone: a monophonic supply of speaker rattling low-end. Monotone has a deep and big sound but is inviting and easy to work with. No hidden menus or cryptic controls. Everything you need is at your fingertips when you want it. Monotone is also the bass synth in Reason Compact for iOS. Start your basslines on Reason Compact and scale up your production on your Desktop – Monotone seamlessly integrates into your workflow.

Subtractor - Polyphonic Synthesizer

Similar in layout of the analogue flagship synths of the early 80s, the Subtractor makes it easy to create anything from warm pads to rumbling bass. A unique feature of the Subtractor Synthesizer is the oscillator phase offset. By using this feature you can create complex waveforms by subtracting or multiplying a waveform with a phase offset copy of itself. This analogue type polyphonic synthesizer is based on subtractive synthesis, the method used in classic, analogue synthesizers.

Kong - Drum Designer

Kong Drum Designer is not your regular drum module. It’s the drum module focused on giving you exactly that drum sound you’re after. Kong has 16 pads and 16 drums. Build your drum sounds based on any of the nine different drum modules. Flavour the sound with 11 support generators and effects. Program automation, create alternating groups and let Reason’s powerful sequencer drive the beat.

Radical Piano - Advanced Acoustic Piano

Radical Piano will change the way you use pianos in your music by allowing you to imagine a piano in a real space and set about creating it yourself through intuitive controls. Based on a custom blend between sampling technology and physical modelling algorithms, Radical Piano affords songwriters, producers, and sound designers an unprecedented level of control to craft a realistic piano that is 100% unique.

MIDI Out - Device

Play the sounds of your favourite hardware synths and beat machines within the Reason Rack. Sequence and automate your MIDI gear in Reason's sequencer, play in new ways with Players, or control any MIDI parameter with CV cables from any rack device.

When using Reason as a VST3/AU/AAX plugin, the MIDI Out Device communicates directly with the host. Build your own custom MIDI rack using Reason's devices and control any other plugin or external hardware in your DAW of choice.

Effects

Sweeper

Add more colour with this high quality, multi-talented modulation unit with expansive dynamic modulation options. Sweeper offers three separate stereo modulation effects: phaser, flanger and filter. The pristine-sounding phaser offers up to a whopping 40 stages for some extreme phasing sounds. The Flanger excels at the sweeping sounds you’d expect from it while the filter section is the oversampled filter from Europa with nine filter modes. To breathe life into the effect, Sweeper has a modulator with a looping envelope, an audio follower and audio trig to modulate just about any of Sweeper’s settings.

Master Bus Compressor

Reason’s trusted ready-for-radio bus compressor is now available as a rack device. The sound is identical to the Mixer’s master bus compressor, but the rack unit offers expanded CV control, dry/wet settings and the ability to apply the compressor magic anywhere in your signal chain. How would your drum mix sound with its own Master Bus Compressor?

The Echo

The Echo is an advanced stereo echo bringing together the brilliance of modern delays with the organic sounds of analogue circuitry and old-school tape machines. The Echo is equal parts pristine stereo delay, sound sculpturing toolbox, and playable performance effect. Add Delay, colour, modulations and triggers to your Rack. The Trigger and Roll modes let you play The Echo as an instrument, creating stutter and repeat effects on the fly.
