1. MISHBY

 
MISHBY
 

MISHBY, little tape machine that couldn’t.

Twisted by forbidden science. Manipulated by the parasitic consciousness of a long forgotten terror.

It is a tape emulation disaster inspired by cheap cassette decks that nobody cared about, from companies that no longer exist.

Dare to explore its desynchronizing analog sections, glitching digital schemes, “cassette” “tape” “emulation”, whatever a “self-care” control is, at least one actual ghost and that’s just the start.

MAIN FEATURES:

MISHBY uses industry-participating vaporware technology in conjunction with the latest advancements in anti-user interface design to present the final face of analog vs digital destruction.

  • Cheap cassette quality, noise, soft and harsh distortions
  • Multi-band phase-desynced tape wow
  • Self-Care
  • Broken and destructive digital decode
  • Band focused glitch with length and reset probability.
  • Inspirational quotes and general life advice.

2. M-Tron Pro

 
M-Tron Pro
 

Put Legendary Mellotron Sounds into Your Studio!

The GForce M-Tron Pro is a spot-on emulation of the legendary Mellotron®, the tape-based keyboard heard on recordings by such artists as The Beatles, Led Zepplin, Radiohead, Oasis, Trent Reznor, Trentemøller, AIR and Nils Frahm amongst many others.

M-Tron Pro offers a huge 3.5GB sound library with more than 200 tape banks, and it includes 19 of the first M-Tron tape banks, all remastered at the acclaimed Abbey Road Studios. You also get 45 new sample sets and more than 700+ specially created patches. For Mellotron sound with digital ease, you need GForce’s M-Tron Pro. 

PLEASE Note: AAX version is Mac compatible only.

From the flutes on the legendary introduction to The Beatles’ “Strawberry Fields Forever” to tracks from The Moody Blues, David Bowie, and The Rolling Stones to the modern sounds of The Flaming Lips, Nine Inch Nails, Modest Mouse, Muse, U2, Sigur Ros, and more, there’s no question that the sound of the Mellotron is a deep part of music history. Now, you can experience that tape-based playback sonic experience for yourself — and with 100%-digital convenience – with GForce’s M-Tron Pro.

Of its massive tape-bank library, M-Tron Pro gives you 45 brand-new tape banks not found on GForce’s original Mellotron. What’s more, 19 tapes from the M-Tron have been remastered at London’s legendary Abbey Road Studios for the ultimate in sound quality. In total, there are over 3.5GB of world-class samples.

In addition to its 200 tape banks, GForce’s M-Tron Pro boasts more than 700+ patches, many custom-designed by world-class recording artists and programmers, so you have instant access to a diverse sonic palette.

3. PreTube

 
PreTube
 

PreTube is a Machine-Learning based tube pre-amp emulation which will add subtle analogue saturation to your instrument or vocal recordings.

The included artificial neural networks have learnt to precisely imitate the behavior of actual high-end hardware circuits.

Choose between three different amps with different characteristics to find the most suitable sound for your project.

PreTube is also a valuable addition to your mastering chain to add analogue depth and warmth.

MAIN FEATURES

  • PRE-AMP MODELS – Different circuits
    • You can choose between three different pre-amp models. Each amp has its own unique sound. For example use GHOST for subtle saturation or VINTAGE for rough overdrive. You can easily switch between models to compare and choose the one you like most.
  • PRECISE EMULATION – Exact Waveform Matching
    • The output signal of the analogue hardware amplifiers is precisely estimated by neural networks. In several time-consuming training sessions the algorithms were optimized to match the behaviour of their hardware counterparts exactly.
  • HIGHLY OPTIMIZED – Efficient Computation
    • Artificial Neural Networks are known to require lots of computational ressources. However, the PreTube algorithms are highly optimized to even run multiple instances efficiently in real-time! If you still happen to get to the limits of your system, just switch off HQ Mode while mixing and back on for final render.

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Supported samplerates: 44.1kHz, 48kHz, 96kHz, 192kHz
  • Supported channel layout: Mono/Stereo.
  • Plugin formats: AAX, VST3, AU

Drumazon
 

Synthesis

Drumazon synthesis emulates all the sounds of the original 909. All the instruments are synthesized in exactly the same way as the original. All the nuances and detail of the original are captured perfectly. In addition, all Drumazon instruments have enhanced controls. This extra functionality allows the user to adjust the sounds further than on the original unit. This opens up a whole new world of sound creation.

Outputs

Drumazon has a flexible output configuration. Every instrument’s audio signal can be routed to any of the 11 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. Every instrument also has a Mute and Solo button. 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

Drumazon 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 Drumazon’s internal clock or set to synchronize perfectly to the host sequencer. Most of Drumazon’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

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.

6. Wires

 
Wires
 

Turn the echoes of the past into the music of now with Wires.

German composer and YouTuber Hainbach opened his treasure chest for us: we are happy to present to you Wires, an accurately modeled and enhanced 1970s Soviet wire recorder.

Made originally for military and secret service use across the Iron Curtain, in the hands of a few avant garde musicians it became a magical lofi-tool and ghostly echo machine. Now this rare and rather finicky to operate piece of hardware is available for the first time as a faithful yet modern plugin.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Magnetic Wire Emulation
  • Echo Section
  • Original Speaker and Mic Emulation
  • Start and Stop effects
  • Hiss and Motor noise with Envelope
  • Resizable Window
  • Preset system with randomizer

Transform your audio to the world of numbers stations and secret operations, dub out to very unusual echoes or make the most lofi beats to study too. We took great care to get all the idiosyncratic behavior exactly right – it reacts dynamically to the input and does stuff to audio that is a completely different texture to magnetic tape.

There is a special tone to the hair-thin wire and the vacuum tube output stage of this machine, unheard of anywhere else. The standard way to make a unit such as this music is to put it on an aux channel of a mixer, to turn it into a fixed tempo echo. We offer all the variable time features you want, as well as the option to switch off the rather high noise floor of this machine without sacrificing the rather alive sound.

WIRE RECORDERS
Magnetic wire recorders went out of fashion after the advent of magnetic tape, surviving only in special operations such as flight recorders, space flight, or clandestine operations (wearing a wire denotes not the cable but the recorder). The particular model of recorder we modeled comes from East German Army stock – on the reels you could still hear traces of military operations.

LO-FI
Who needs tape for lo-fi? This machine is taking the term “lo-fi” to an entirely new and haunting level.

There is a special tone to the hair-thin wire and the vacuum tube output stage of this wire recorder, unheard of anywhere else.

Wires turns the most boring signals into sepia coloured magic.


7. Outer Space

 
Outer Space
 

Outer Space is a faithful emulation plugin of a famous vintage tape echo made in the early seventies. As the original unit, Outer Space features an echo section with three playback heads and a spring reverb tank. We have modelled three different tape frequency responses and saturations, along with all the analog imperfections of tape recording/playback. We’ve also modelled the ballistic response of the delay rate (repeat rate) which can create eerie pitch shifts (due to the Doppler effect), one of the classic tape echo-based sound effects. Specifications

  • Vintage Tape Echo
  • 3 Tape modes: Original, Modern, Old
  • Spring Reverb (with short/long Decay)
  • Background Noise with Envelope
  • Oversample up to 16x
  • Preset system with randomizer
  • Formats: VST, AU, and AAX (32/64bit)
  • Platforms: OSX, Windows
