    Consona is a simple but powerful Ensemble Engine for Kontakt 5. It was originally created for our team during the work on Spring Choirs, the upcoming conter part to Autumn Choirs and will also include Vocal recordings other than AC. The functions will be of course way more extensive, but Consona can be a really cool Sounddesign

    application if You want to create Your own unique Choral Voices, Vocal Pad and much more...And Don't limit Yourself to Voices only, try it on solo instruments like guitars, violins etc.

    [​IMG]
    To Claim Consona Simply click on "Visit Shop". Then You'll be redirected to our Fastspring Webshop where You can add Consona to Your cart and check out (You don't have to pay anything of course). After that You'll receive an email with the download links. Enjoy :)

    Obviously are the Ensemble settings the core of the engine. Here You can control five Parameters:

    • Number of Voices (per Layer not global)
    • Stereo Spread of the Voices
    • Random Detune Amount (Per Voice)
    • Random Tone Variation Amount (Per Voice)
    • Weighting to dampen the Voices in the middle a bit for a more natural sound
    !Note! The Ensemble settings are applied globally to ALL three layers together.

    (In Spring Choirs You'll be able to control those settings for each layer individually)


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    Besides thickening Your sounds through the ensemble engine are You also able to mix up to three layers together. On the Layers (Here called Voices) do You have the following controls:

    • Activate/Deactivate Layers
    • Setting Stereo Width of each Layer
    • Setting Panorama Position " "
    • Setting Volume " "
    • Setting Low Pass (LP2) frequency " "

    @aymat thanks for your contribution! This add was already done some pages ago. For the next adds you could use the "search" thread function to confirm no repetitions. Thanks again!

    Audeze REVEALS Incredible New Plug-in
    [​IMG]
    Current Version 1.0.1 - Updated 02/07/18
    Instructions: Download and install over the previous version. No uninstall needed.

    Audeze REVEALS Incredible New Plug-in
    Reveal is a revolutionary plugin developed by Audeze which applies carefully designed filter presets specific to our headphone models. This provides the listener with an experience similar to what you would hear from high quality studio reference monitors in an acoustically treated room (but without the pesky room reflections and reverb*). The presets are not meant to fix any issues, but rather to enhance the listener’s experience. We expect some users will prefer our headphones without any DSP presets, while others will prefer the “room sound” calibration provided by these Reveal plugin presets. The choice is yours!

    For professional applications, Reveal can allow mixing and/or mastering in virtually any location while ensuring your work will translate well to most any system. For pleasure listening, Reveal gives another “flavor” to be chosen by the listener and adds value to your Audeze headphones.

    The Reveal plugin is available at no cost for macOS (10.10 and above) and Windows (7 and above) and is compatible with most Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) or playback software that supports AU, VST or AAX plugins. Compatible DAWs include ProTools, Logic, Ableton Live, Digital Performer, REAPER and others. Compatible audio playback software includes JRiver, Audirvana Plus, Pure Music, VOX, Foobar2000 and others. The filters used by the Reveal plugin were designed for all commonly used sample-rates (44.1 kHz - 768 kHz), so no resampling happens no matter what sample-rate you use.

    Thanks in part to its highly intuitive user interface, Reveal is extremely easy to use. Simply download and install the plugin package here, load it into your DAW or music player software, select the model of Audeze headphone you’re using from the dropdown menu on the left, then make any adjustments to the Mix and Gain knobs to suit your taste and material.

    * Reveal Plugin does not apply any spatialization, reflections or crossfeed. It is designed to to be transparent and as unobtrusive as possible.

    How to Configure the Plugin for DAW Applications
    To install Reveal, download the Reveal Plugin zip file. Once the download is complete, double click on the downloaded file to unzip and run the installer. The installer should prompt you to select which components you want to install, and the directory in which you would like to install them. Be sure you install the versions you need for your system and put them in the location recommended by the provider of your preferred software (usually the system plugins folder).

    Most DAW applications work in similar ways, but there are some differences in the way plugins are integrated. We suggest you contact the maker of your particular DAW if you have any questions, but here’s an example of how to load Reveal into Logic on a Mac:


    Setting up Reveal on Logic
    In your project, open the mixer by pressing X on your keyboard and locate the Audio FX section of your Stereo Out track:

    Run LV2 plugins on macOS

    x42 Equalizer in Studio One 3
    There’s some awesome LV2 plugins out there for Macs, like the X42 plugins. Not everyone uses an LV2 host on macOS, but many people do use VST hosts. Even though mac-compatible LV2s, especially with GUIs, are rare, it’s likely that increased user interest will generate increased developer support.

    If you end up using an LV2 and enjoy it, please contact the developer and let them know that you appreciate their work!

    So here’s a short tutorial on how to use lv2vst to wrap your LV2 plugins to VST!

    First will be a run-down for moderately experienced users/developers. Then I’m going to assume that you are on 10.11+ and have a bare-bones installation and know basically nothing.

    This is written in my typical style rather than in a documentation format. This is not documentation. This is a how-to. If you have any questions, please post them in the comments.

    UPDATE!!
    https://decomposer.de/sitala.html


    Lucijan Kreidebleich
    Hello Everybody!

    We are very happy to finally announce the next release of our drum sampler Sitala.
    Most notably we added support for MIDI mapping and multi-out. Mappings can be either done using a 'Learn' mode, using General MIDI maps defined in Kits or using predefined 'Chromatic' (aka sequential notes) and 'White Keys' mapping for simple input on a keyboard. In the standalone program parameters can be mapped to midi controllers. In a DAW you would naturally use parameter mappings to achieve the same.
    Multi-out support can be enabled through the hamburger menu and will send each sample to it's own bus. So sixteen discrete busses in total.

    Smaller improvements include:
    - More accurate trigger and choke timing
    - Support ASIO drivers (Windows)
    - Click on waveform plays sound
    - Drop a file onto overview display to load sample

    We hope you enjoy the improvements and are as always keen on receiving feedback!

    Grab the packages from our site: https://decomposer.de/sitala.html

    BETWEEN RHODES AND WURLITZER
    Where it all begins. Hohner created The Electra Piano T in the early 70's and was followed by other electric piano manufacturers. It uses forks strucked by hammers and electronically converts vibrations transmitted to a transistorised amplifier.

    Sound can be described as a half-way between Rhodes and Wurlitzer, but with a vintage dirty touch

    Enceladus EQ

    [​IMG]

    An EQ that tries to simulate the rich phat sound of analog equalizers. So far it's a beta version, so the UI is a bit confusing and not very pretty. The plug-in has been tested at 44100 and 96000 Hz samplerate, but should work at other rates as well.

    Windows VST 64-bit v50 Download
    Windows VST 32-bit v50 Download
    Apple AudioUnit 64-bit v49 Download
    Apple VST 64-bit v49 Download
    Versions 49 and 50 are identical.

    Tips & facts
    • The meters on the right side show how much you're effectively boosting.
    • The amount of dB boosted may be more than indicated when "Drive" is more than 0%
    • The amount of harmonic distortion / saturation is a product of both boost and drive.
    • It's easier to tell the difference betweewn the different modes and the "dark" mode if the meters reach about 20-30% or more.
    • If you have trouble making the meters reach levels as loud as this screenshot, try sending a louder signal into the plugin.

    Version history
    • v50: Changed the way the version number is displayed.
    • v49: First beta that seems to work.

    [​IMG]by JoaCHIP; Mon Jul 30, 2018 5:08 amI made an EQ plugin (free, win/mac) plz beta test

    Okay, so basically I've been a bit disappointed with how thin digital equalizers tend to sound compared to analog ones, especially when boosting. So came up with this "drive" level which works in combination with the usual "boost" amount. The result is that you can drive the boosted frequencies more or less to get various degrees of soft harmonic distortion affecting the frequency boosts themselves more than just saturating the entire signal as so often seen in many other plugins.

    The algorithm is sort of unusual, and it doesn't make sense when cutting, so the four bands of this EQ only offers boosting.

    A few tips: Give it a good strong input signal approaching 0 dB. If your signal is very weak (e.g. -25 dB) you won't really be able to tell the difference between the modes.
    "Transistor" and "Tubes I" usually work better in the treble, whereas "Tubes I" and "Tubes II" tend to be more interesting on lower frequencies (but this isn't always the case).

    • It's free
    • Both Windows and Mac vesions available
    • It's still beta, so the UI is not very pretty.
