The Blend/AmazingNoises Contest is over, and we are really impressed by the awesome quality of the submitted tracks! It was very hard to choose three tracks for the prize, so we decided to give 6 prizes! (Still we had to leave out many high-quality works!) Specifically we assigned a First Prize, two Second Prizes and three […]

The Dark Synth is an additive synthesizer with some unique characteristics. You can define a waveform of up to 2048 partials (sine waves) for its main oscillator, the ADDITIVE oscillator, using presets waveforms, spectral processing algorithms and freehand drawing. Moreover you can add up to 128 copies of the Additive oscillator, and each copy (generator) […]

This is a simple but effective Max for Live Virtual Instrument: it has two oscillators in ring modulation, plus variable noise modulating the oscillators phase. In connection with Live audio effects it can create a wide variety of sounds. Mikro_0 is FREE! Here is a video of the virtual instrument in action:

The Grain Crusher is a Max for Live device which performs “Extreme Grain Manipulation”. It is essentially a noise and glitch FSU audio effect: you can get a lot of strange and unique sounds from its 3 processing modules: the Delay Modulator, the Frequency Mangler and the External Loop. The Grain Crusher runs in Ableton Live […]

What is it? Pulsaret is a new interactive real-time program by Alessandro Petrolati for asynchronous/synchronous prototypes granular synthesis. Pulsaret implements a wide range of time-domain varieties of granular synthesis: glisson, grainlet, trainlet pulsar etc… Sound disintegration, pulverizer, sampled envelope “convolution”, dynamic draw envelope/shape, interpolation-transitions and Hyper Vectorial pads they simplify the creation of incredible sound […]

What is it? Density is a new real-time software by Alessandro Petrolati designed especially for LIVE asynchronous granular synthesis and sound file granulation, a genuine granular playground able to generate a wide range of usual and not so usual effects: time/pitch shifting, time/pitch jittering, intricate textures, grain fountain/pulverizer, recording, and manipulation of buffers, complex scrub […]

Hi, here is a new Max for Live device: the Granular Stereo Faker. It is a subtle granular delay: the different delays between right and left channel create the stereo effect. This is more audio FX than a stereo enhancer, but I use it a lot, to give life to static mono sounds. Granula Stereo […]

The Compulsive Switcher I is a Max for Live device wich switches the incoming audio on and off, periodically. Each segment is filtered and panned and, since the switching happens at audio rate it can create some interesting and original effects. Compulsive Switcher I is FREE and you can download it here. It can also […]
