Been a while since I last posted but I’ve been reading a lot lately.
Whilst I was reading my computer music magazine I came across this cool bit of news.
Cakewalk are now offering their classic synth and effects vst plugins for download.
Cakewalk SFZ+ Professional
“rgc:audio’s revolutionary SoundFont player sample-playback engine, packed in a professional VST/DXi instrument.
Outstanding sound quality, stereo built-in effects, adjustable CPU/quality settings to adjust it to your hardware, fully multitimbral operation, multiple stereo outputs, several loading modes including direct-from-disk streaming and a beautiful interface make sfz+ the perfect choice for SoundFont users and professional composers.”
Square 1 Synth
“The warmness and classic sound of the vintage analog synthesizers, combined with the fidelity and precision of a VST instrument.
A simple synthesizer, oriented to the serious music enthusiast. High quality sound with a warm and easy layout, perfect to learn synth programming: all controls in one panel for instant access, clear and distinctive sections. The built-in effects add depth to the sound and convenience to the sound programming.”
Also available are Cakewalks Audio FX 1 and 2
Cakewalk Audio FX 1
“Cakewalk Audio FX 1 is a series of four dynamic real-time audio processing plug-ins including Compressor/Gate, Limiter, Expander/Gate, and Dynamics Processor. Audio FX 1 plug-ins use 32-bit, floating-point processing, providing you with fast, precise, mono and stereo audio effects. Audio FX 1 can be used as real-time effects during playback, or used to render audio tracks as off-line edits. So you get maximum editing flexibility whether you’re mixing tracks at home or in the studio.”
“Created by precise measurement and analysis, Audio FX 2 uses advanced processing algorithms to apply the classic sound and warmth of several different vintage guitar amplifiers and analog tape decks to your digital audio. Best of all, these plug-ins allow you to get all of the good things associated with vintage gear, such as their distinctive sound and warmth, without the problems and undesired effects that older equipment often have.”
