VST Plug-Ins
These VST plug-ins run natively on any VST compatible audio application under Windows 32bit. On 64bit systems a bridging software is needed which is already included in many applications. If this is not the case you can acquire a VST bridge separately.
Mac users please read this.

BIONIC SUPA DELAY
This is an improved version of the popular "Bionic Delay" which is in use in many studios since over a decade. The new version was developed in a joint effort with Dub producer Russ D (The Disciples) who proposed to include additional features which are helpful for live Dub mixes.

  • 2 Oscillators: Sine, Saw, Ramp, Triangle, Pulse, Noise
  • 2 Filters operating in parallel (connection in series is also possible).
    - Filter 1: 2 x Low pass, 2 x High pass, Bandpass
    - Filter 2: stereo filter with separate cut-off for left and right side (2 x Low pass, 2 x High pass, Bandpass)
  • Feedback loop for the entire filter section
  • Distortion effect with two modes
    - hard: metallic distortion sound
    - soft: tube-like warm distortion
    The distortion effect can be applied pre- or post-filter. Also it is possible to distort only the signal in filter 2, thus preserving a clean signal from filter 1. This setup is predestined to generate a sub bass with filter 1 whereas filter 2 can provide interesting midrange textures in stereo.
  • Modulation
    - 3 x LFO, synchronized to host application
    - 3 x ADSR Envelope
    - Matrix: 5 modulation slots connect 12 modulation sources to 26 modulation destinations. Pitch bend, amplifier envelope and filter envelope are pre-wired.
  • Process external signals: In Oscillator 2 an external signal can be selected as the waveform.
  • MIDI learn: Right-click any control to assign a midi control and automate the parameter from you DAW.
  • Monophonic modes with glide
  • Polyphonic modes with max. 8 simultaneous notes
  • Individual Outs are available for the two Filters. This feature helps to integrate the bass sound in your mix. For example apply additional effects like reverb to the mid range signal from filter 2 while keeping the sub bass form filter 1 clean.
  • Structure display: This panel shows the signal flow of the synth as it results from your settings of the filter and FX routings.
  • Pop-up hints: While the mouse hovers over a control a hint appears explaining the function of the control.
Beat Magazine from Germany gave Twin Bass a 6 out of 6 review plus a "recommendation from the editorial staff". Read the review here.

  • playback speed is modulated in realtime by up to six oscillators
  • intuitive controls: Non-linearly scaled controls allow to directly set the perceived pitch deviation depth and rate resulting from the playback speed modulation.
  • dual mode: In dual mode the left and the right channel are modulated separately.
  • flange mode: When the modulated signal is mixed with the original signal a flanging effect occurs. This feature recalls the times when recording engineers created a flange effect by applying pressure on the tape reel with their hand. Additional controls for feedback and delay allow to create more intense flange effects. Although the unit can be pushed to self-oscillation in extreme settings it will never cause digital clipping thanks to a compressor algorithm inserted into the feedback path.
  • A built-in test tone generator makes it easy to quickly check a particular setting with different signals or to use the plug-in as a self-contained "noise maker".
  • If a control has no influence on the sound in a certain mode it will disappear from the surface.
  • All parameters are controllable by midi controllers.
  • Pop-up hints help to understand the function of each control on the user interface. These appear when the mouse rests over a control.
  • Also the assignment of midi controllers is documented in the pop-up hints.
ECHOLIVE
I built this plug-in for a live performance at the Bazillus Club in Zurich. It features a tap tempo function which makes it easy to create echoes that fit the timing of a live band.

  • the delay time can be defined by tapping the tempo with the mouse or on a midi keyboard or midi controller
  • alternatively the delaytime can also be set manually or synchronized with the host application.
  • latency compensation: you can compensate your soundcard's latency for perfectly timed echoes in live applications.
  • tape model including tape saturation, tape hiss, wow & flutter, low and high pass filtering, smooth parameter for continuous delay time changes like on a real tape delay
  • stereo-control: ping pong delay, time symmetry, stereo width
  • all parameters are controllable by midi controllers.
  • pop-up hints help to understand the function of each control on the user interface. These appear when the mouse rests over a control.
  • also the assignement of midi controllers is documented in the pop-up hints
DUB SIREN

  • simple synthesizer architecture with 1 Oscillator and 2 independent LFOs (LFO1: rectified sine LFO2: pulse) additional chopper circuit to mute the sound during the low phase of LFO2
  • tape delay emulation with highpass and lowpass filter in the feedback path. adjustable simulation of tape hiss (useful for endless delays at high tape saturation levels).
  • all parameters controllable by midi, assign any controller you want using the right-click context menu. (by default controllers #20 - #32 are assigned)
TAPE DELAY
On user request I made the tape delay from the DUB SIREN available as a separate plug-in.

ANALOGIC DELAY
This plug-in mimicks the tape delay in Logic Audio. I created it on request from a friend who switched to another sequencer software after Logic's discontinuation on the PC platform.

  • tape model including tape saturation, wow, flutter, low and high pass filtering
  • The delay time is not entered in milliseconds but as a notelength (in relation to the song tempo in your sequencer). The Groove parameter allows fine tuning from tripplet to dotted note timing.
  • parameter "Smooth" creates continuous delay time changes like on a real tape delay (no digital clicks when changing delay time during the song)
  • MIDI learn: Right-click any control to assign a midi control and automate the parameter from you DAW.
  • pop-up hints help to understand the function of each control on the user interface. These appear when the mouse rests over a control.
BIONIC DELAY
This enhanced version of the Analogic Delay gives you separate control over the delay times on left and right channel. suitable for ping pong delays and drifting delays
