Archibald 2.5

September 28th, 2006 No comments

Archibald is a virtual drummer who adds improvisational touches to your drum patterns. As you build your rhythm in the step-sequencer, you assign Archibald a margin of interpretation from 0 to 100%. This margin allows for a more realistic sound, based upon the simple fact that no drummer plays two consecutive eighth notes with exactly the same tone and attack. Archibald may be a “machine,” but his interpretations may surprise you. The sampler engine which accompanies the step-sequencer uses 44.1 kHz resolution and an impressive set of realistic sounds.
The second sequencer, driving the first, allows the user to program sequences based on several bars. From Version 2.1 onward, Archibald may interface with your sequencer via Rewire technology, allowing you to mix the 7 individual outputs from within your favourite sequencing software. You may also export your work as audio, in stereo or multi-channel mode. Or use Archibald to drive any MIDI device.

Voice Candy 1.1

August 9th, 2006 No comments

Voice Candy 1.1 has just been released, and it brings voice memo management to this very clever little voice altering program. We blogged about it when it was first released, and it looks like it has just gotten better with this .1 release. Also added in this free update is the ability to listen to the voice effects as they are applied in real time (though you shouldn’t use the internal mic and speakers to do this. Can you say feedback?).

Add 8-bit Nintendo Sounds to your music

Peter writes – “The best way to get 8-bit sounds is to employ a real NES system or Game Boy for fifteen bucks and go to town — nothing else sounds quite the same. But for the next best thing, and the ability to do evil things to those sounds within a serious host, this free plug-in from Japan that will do the job – “ [via] – Link & YCMK Magical 8bit Plug – Link.

KaossPad 3 – now official

August 2nd, 2006 No comments

So, after Lukatoyboy’s leak, Korg have released full details of the Kaoss Pad 3. Good things: It looks great, with a pixellated pad, a black body and crazy-ass gold mecha-style knobs. As promised, there are four sample pads, Recycle-style beat slicing, SD card/USB connections and messages scrolling across the pad. Bad things: Still only phono plugs out the back. Assuming Luka is right, price should be €400.
