Softsynths & FX Thread

If you get a sniff at Knifonium on PA at a good price grab it with both hands and run off cackling with your prize.

I got the email today about PA stuff too. I looked and I don’t really need truepeak or masterdesk (I just got Ozone 9 advanced last week and I’m still thinking about that Softube/Weiss stuff), and then the stuff I was interested in the 2999 coupon didn’t work for. Then I saw that sound theory is doing 35% off on Gulfoss so I’m thinking about that one now (it’s $130 and they say a 35% discount will be applied at checkout so maybe that’s actually $100?). Don’t have any of the smart/active EQs, been looking at demos today and I think I like what that one’s doing most. But it’s thanksgiving here in the US, so I’m going to go have far too large a meal and download the demo. I’ll make a decision next week once I’ve actually paid rent.


#351

Huh. Wasn’t thinking of a synth. But have been wanting something weird to feed the SP16. Ill have to see if the coupon excludes it.

edit: fuck it, I trust you and listened to a few short demos. Pulling the trigger on this for $29USD.

edit edit: shit, also reminded me that I have some Brainworx stuff I already own not installed on my current lappy. Score!

I love it for durty durty bass.


#353

I have to confess, I had a weak moment and upgraded Ableton to Live 11 for just 25% off…


#354

i hate drum programming too… @White_Noise mainly because of software i use.


#355

I can see why. I only just ticked through some presets but seems promising for durty things : )


#356

Just got Byome and Triad for a grand total of $30. Probably the best plugin deal I’ve ever seen in my life


#357

Yea. I was looking at that today. I think Im going to grab it.


#358

I have to say Unfiltered Audio is slowly becoming a favorite of mine. I think the only other plug-in I have from them is the original Sandman delay but since then I’ve been following their new plug-ins and I gotta say from basics to unique, they’ve got some interesting stuff at good prices. I really want to try their LO-FI-AF but I’ll be waiting to be able to buy it on sale.


#359

I’ve got SpecOps. Its fun. Very situational but a bit of a giggle.


#360

I almost pulled the trigger on that instead…but I’m no sound designer and thought I’d mostly spend my time just randomly trying to make it sound good on something. lol


#361

All odosynth plugins is there. There is a link on the top of page to all vsts in one archive.


#362

Yoko & Sunder are really good, too

SpecOps is a lot of fun but I hardly use it in my sound design sessions. It’s not really all that versatile, just kind of spectral FSU fun for an evening and then shelved for a long time afterward. Byome, Triad, Yoko and Sunder are pretty cool to use all year round


#363

This. But those times… yeehaw :slight_smile:


#364

I will check out Yoko and Sunder for sure.


#365

VCV Rack 2 seems to be out now, but the VST version is not free :frowning: Looks nice though.
Guess I have to play around a bit with Unreal Metasounds instead.


#366

Acustica has Sienna on sale for 45 USD after currency conversion (which is less than Sonarworks). That includes a system-wide utility that corrects headphone frequency response and really, really good room simulation. I’m trying it now and I’m sold. My only complaint is IDK how to auto-launch this with windows, but I’m going to be consuming all content and working in the DAW like this from now on. I don’t hear the room simulation, but I hear the space in my mixes a whole lot better.

Load up Sienna, select your headphones, select a room with a set of speakers you like, and don’t look back.


#367

This thing is pretty cool. The demo lasts fully-featured for 90 days so you can get used to the quirks and oddities long before you commit, but apparently it’s on a major sale over at JRR until next year. I’m thinking of pulling the trigger because obviously I need more wires. Who doesn’t?
