New Audio Plugin Lets You ‘Debird’ Your Recordings

[embedded content]

Boom shared this video demo for Debird, an audio effect that they say removes bird noises from your recordings with ‘surgical precision’.

The AI-based tool uses machine learning to identify and remove bird sounds from location audio. You can isolate and solo the bird sounds, and even dial in custom levels of ‘debirding’.

Features:

  • Remove bird noises in real time.
  • Radically simplify and expedite your workflow.
  • Super-fast processing of audio files.
  • The advanced Machine Learning algorithm guarantees the most precise removal of bird sounds without audible loss of the desired sound frequencies.
  • Use the built-in filters to choose frequencies you want to keep to exclude them from the removal process.
  • Adjust the sensitivity to fine-tune the amount of removal.
  • Isolate and solo out the bird sounds, if desired.
  • Debird keeps learning on the job and will improve over time.

Sinevibes Stator Brings Audio Tape Wobble Effects To The Korg Prologue, Minilogue XD & NTS-1 Synths

[embedded content]

Sinevibes developer Artemiy Pavlov has done as much as anyone – even Korg – to demonstrate the possibilities of Korg’s Multi Engine, which is featured on the NTS-1, the Minilogue XD and Prologue synths.

Pavlov has developed 5 user oscillators and 17 FX for the platform, dramatically expanding the possibilities of the synths.

His latest Multi Engine release is Stator, a tape wobble simulator plugin. It is designed to replicate the effects of speed fluctuations in tape machines, namely wow and flutter, due to uneven electric motor rotation, as well as scrape flutter caused by the friction of the tape against the tape head. The algorithm also models gentle phasing artifacts produced by crosstalk between the stereo channels.

Pavlov says that the processed sound has a beautiful stereo vibe, and can go from gentle chorusing and coloration all the way to dramatic lo-fi pitch wobble.

[embedded content]

Electro-Harmonix has introduced the Intelligent Harmony Machine Harmonizer / Pitch Shifter Pedal, a pitch-shifting harmonizer that lets you automatically create diatonic two- and three-part harmonies.

Diatonic harmonies or chords are ones based on the standard notes of the scale in a key.

The Intelligent Harmony Machine also performs polyphonic pitch shifts, so the pitch shifts you dial up are applied to chords as well as single notes. A Major/Minor switch lets you select whether 2nds and 3rds will be major or minor.

Features:

  • Compact harmony generating & pitch-shifting
  • “Impeccable” tracking and musical tone
  • Two distinct modes: Intelligent Harmony and Polyphonic
  • Intelligent Harmony Mode generates diatonic harmonies in a set key based on the single notes you play. Key Selector and #/- switches provide access to all 12 keys
  • In Polyphonic Override Mode you can play single notes and chords. The IHM’s 11-position Interval Selector switch lets you select the harmony
  • In Momentary Mode the effect is only active when the footswitch is depressed. Choose from instant shifts or set the time it takes the signal to sweep up and down
  • Mix control sets the mix between your dry and shifted signals. Dry output adds signal routing and control options and flexibility
  • Comes equipped with an EHX 9 Volt power supply, can also run on 9 Volt battery

Pricing and Availability

The Intelligent Harmony Machine is available now for $230.

BLEASS Intros Dragonfly Tremolo Effect For iOS, Mac & Windows

BLEASS Intros Dragonfly Tremolo Effect For iOS, Mac & Windows
[embedded content]

BLEASS has introduced Dragonfly, described as “a completely new approach to tremolo effect”.

Dragonfly is designed to let you make your synths, voices or melody “vibrate” in correspondence with its own frequencies. Or – as with sidechain compression – you can have the effect synced to your bass or other track.

Dragonfly automatically syncs the tremolo effect applied on a track using various triggers:

  • First, you can use the pitch tracking module on either the input audio track (“self mode”) or a sidechained audio track (“sidechain mode”).
  • You also can use the MIDI input to trigger Dragonfly with accuracy: the tremolo will automatically sync with the notes’ frequencies.
  • Finally, a manual mode allows you to set a fixed frequency. Then you can finetune your settings by adjusting the fine, factor, smoothness, stereo, attack & release.
  • The “Wild” mode applies a waveshaper to the signal to produce a subtle saturation. The final tremolo effect rate is mirrored by the flapping wings of the Dragonfly.

Audio Demo:

Pricing and Availability

Dragonfly is available starting October 20 with intro through November 1, 2021:

  • Windows & Mac: 15€ / $19
  • iOS: 5,49€ / $4,99

Normal price: Windows & Mac: 29€ / 35$ , iOS: 9,99€ / $8,99.

Baby Audio TAIP Uses AI To Emulate Tape Effects

Baby Audio has introduced TAIP, an AI-powered audio tape effect plugin, for macOS & Windows, that’s designed to bring ‘authentic analog heat’ to your tracks, without the need to route your audio outside the box.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

“Tape plugins are not a new concept. However, our emulation method is.

Instead of using traditional DSP, we’ve developed TAIP around an AI algorithm designed to decipher the invisible nuances of analog circuits.

The result is a truly faithful tape emulation that’s intuitive and creative in use – with some added features to accommodate a modern workflow. Use TAIP to bring a touch of warmth and glue to your tracks, or ‘drive it like you hate it’ as an alternative to your distortion plugins.”

Key Features:

  • AI-powered algorithm, giving you the true warmth and behavior of analog tape
  • Flexible feature set, allowing you to create a custom ‘tape flavor’ for any need
  • Use TAIP to add musical saturation and glue to drums, instruments, vocals and beyond

MOE Analog Chorus 60 Clones Classic Roland Juno-60 Circuitry
[embedded content]

Made On Earth (MOE) has announced pre-orders for the MOE Analog Chorus 60, described as “a perfect clone of the original Juno-60 chorus circuit.”

Here’s what they have to say about it:

It uses 2x “xvive mn3009” and the original Panasonic “2x mn3101” chips (rare parts!), original transistors 2SC1815, 2SA1015 and 2SK30A-GR with the exact same circuit.

Instead of the two buttons with only three rate modes, we added a knob to smoothly control the rate of the chorus, depth of the modulation and the stereo width. (the rate of the original modes is clearly printed around the rate knob for easy recreation of the original rates)

We also added ext lfo/cv input to apply other modulation sources and input gain to accommodate any type of instruments (guitars or synthesizers).

Housing in a high quality aluminum case with durable UV printing and high quality “Alpha” potentiometers.

Sinevibes Rerun v2 For Mac Creates Chaotric Rhythms, Glitch Effects & More
[embedded content]

Sinevibes has released Rerun v2, a major update to its self-randomizing repeater effect plugin for Mac.

Rerun constantly samples small slices of incoming audio, plays them back a number of times, and then starts over again. Each time it does this, Rerun randomizes the slice size and the number of repeats, and is then engages or pauses depending on the probability parameter.

The effect includes multiple playback modes – forward, reverse, alternating – as well as adjustment of slice envelope time and stereo link. Rerun can be configured to produce a very wide range of experimental, always-changing sounds: chaotic rhythms, erratic glitches, randomized reversing, or time-stretched textures.

Features:

  • Self-randomizing sampler-repeater with up to 600 ms slice size and up to 50x repetitions
  • Variable repeater engagement probability, with summed or gated mode
  • Forward, reverse, alternating playback modes
  • Adjustable slice envelope
  • Separate or stereo-linked operation
  • Lag filters on all continuous parameters for smooth, click-free adjustment
  • Supports mono › mono, mono › stereo, and stereo › stereo channel configurations

Pricing and Availability

Rerun v2 is available now for $29 USD. A demo version is also available.

Audio Damage has introduced Other Desert Cities, a new delay effect for iOS, Linux, macOS & Windows, named after a famous sign on the I-10 highway leaving Los Angeles.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

“As its namesake implies, there are many strange and wonderful things lurking inside.

With six algorithms, each with its own unique personality, and extensive modulation capabilities, Other Desert Cities can fill multiple niches, from basic stereo dual delays to never-before-heard granular pitch-shifting chaos.”

Algorithms:

  • Desert Shores Stereo Delay. This is a standard dual delay, with basic EQ, saturation, crossfeed, and spread.
  • Mecca Reverse Delay. A normal dual delay, except the repeats play backwards.
  • Cactus Dual-Delta Delay. This is like a pair of tape delays in use, with individual speed controls and pitch quantizing.
  • Thermal Mullti-Tap Delay. A dual multi-tap, with spread, crossfeed, and basic EQ.
  • Mirage Multi-Head Delay. Imagine if you had a tape delay, but the head was like the rotating head in a VCR. Experimental, strange, and wonderful.
  • Sky Valley Granular Delay. A pitch-shifting granular delay, with control over grain size and scatter, and with EQ.

Pricing and Availability

Other Desert Cities is available now with an intro price of $59 (normally $79).
