NI Razor by Errorsmith

Many years ago I was amazed of SumSynth idea by Lazyfish. It was outstanding because Lazyfish found a way to construct fully operational spectral synthesizer whereas Reaktor had no actual multi-sine modules. Nowadays Reaktor has Sinebank module and it's a quite revolution for the software. Having hundreds and hundred of sine waves mixed together you can get almost any sound possible! And now Razor synth introduced by NI and Errorsmith is really new breathe take in additive synthesis!

Really great idea with beautiful realization. There is a lot of additional online soft like games and even Microkorg XL patch editor! Nice!

Free sample packs WAV/SFZ

Recent news is MusicRadar keep sharing giant sample pack one by one. Generally electronic genre sample pack it can be downloaded from MusicRadar site. And the second pack is clearly classic orchestral by Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra which are also free which quite rare comparing to any electronic stuff out there.

 

And btw, there is coming redesign of SynthOfMine.com site. If you have any additional ideas or synths to review then feel free to contact me or comment any post at the blog! Thanks!

How about a little collection of waveforms?

About 4500 ones!

All this huge collection by Advanture Kid you can get for free at their site. Also there are some extra free stuff like Reverb Impulses and etc.

Sync Modular is free now, thanks NI

That's right NI Reaktor's stepbrother Sync Modular is now free. I've overlooked the news, it became free quite a time ago, but never the less I support that kind of steps. I remember I asked NI to make Reaktor 2.3 free ages ago. Now it feels like they should make free Reaktor 5 🙂

 

Sync Modular is free now

Youtube is the answer

I just did something I should do at least 3 years ago. I created my synthesis Youtube channel. Anyway, the QM synthesis idea was developed ages before this blog even, And before we have Quantum Radio 2 and probablly some more bonuses there is first video for this blog. During creating it I've solved quite a lot of technical problems of video recording, editing, recompressing, sound and multiple video sync. And now there is midi controller in picture, it's Korg's Nanokontrol. So, it's quite good beginning!

Now, enjoy new video! HD/Fullscreen mode is recommended!

SunVox and Virtual ANS are free now

A couple of rocking music software pieces just became freeware. Buzz inspired multi-platform modular tracker and Image to Sound FFT synthesizer. Both from the same developer.

SunVox is a small, fast and powerful music sequencer with modular synthesizers. It is a tool for those people who want to compose music anywhere. SunVox available for desktop PC (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X), pocket computers (Windows Mobile, PalmOS, iPhone) and netbooks.

VirtualANS (ANS – the abbreviation for "Alexandr Nicolaevitch Skryabin", the great Russian composer) is the software analogue of the first Russian synthesizer in which the unique optical method of synthesis, developed by a scientist E. Mursin in the years 1937-1957, is used.

VirtualANS is a tool for creating unique fantastic sounds. You can convert JPG-images to the sound and and vice versa. There are different tools for visual transformations, three methods of synthesis during convertation (FFT and ADDITIVE) and possibility generate multichannel sounds (mono, stereo, 6 channels).

Plus there is a multi-plutform game and some additional interesting stuff on the site!
