Spitfire Audio announces availability of ORBIS plug-in presented in eDNA engine as a horizon-expanding ‘world synth’

Spitfire Audio is proud to announce availability of ORBIS — offered as a horizon-expanding ‘world synthesizer’ standalone plug-in, presented in the sound-specialising British music technology company’s sophisticated eDNA engine, enabling exceedingly creative access to 2,500 extraordinary sounds born out of organic performances treated and transported to new dimensions, designed for progressively-minded composers as a gargantuan creative compendium comprising distorted loops to evolving textures and visceral one-shots, subsonic low-end to ethereal pads, perfect for producing rich-sounding, panoramic scores from nature documentaries to sci-fi movies — as of July 18…

Sometimes a score needs more than an orchestra. ORBIS reimagines the work of David Fanshawe (1942-2010), an English composer, sound explorer, and ethnomusicologist who travelled the globe to gather an archive of approximately 2,000 hours of music, documented for posterity at a time of great change. “The present is almost history; every day is worth recording.” So stated the man himself.

However, ORBIS itself is so much more than a collection of organic field recordings; rather it includes 90% treated content, with over 200 presets, plus loops, textures, one-shots, and pads created by Spitfire Audio’s accomplished team of engineers in its own journey of sonic discovery, distilled — alongside clean recordings, rich in history, character, and emotion — in the sound-specialising British music technology company’s sophisticated eDNA engine to provide users with virtually endless parameters and possibilities for enhancing their own scores with the DNA of countless cultures from across the globe.

Enduring and enthralling, David Fanshawe’s rarefied recordings have already made themselves heard in scores to major movies such as 1997’s Seven Years In Tibet (John Williams) and 2002’s Gangs Of New York (Howard Shore); now they are ready and able to empower anyone’s scoring sensibilities as an essential resource for producers, composers, or sound designers intent on seeking out new sounds — or even civilisations! After all, sounds are the fabric from which music is weaved.

With that thought in mind, maybe it was inevitable that Spitfire Audio would creatively cross paths with the David Fanshawe World Music Archive. As such, ORBIS was effectively conceived back in January 2015, when widow Jane Fanshawe introduced Spitfire Audio co-founder and composer Paul Thomson to the global sonic explorer’s namesake legacy. “Listening to these extraordinarily vivid recordings is like looking through a window into a different time and place,” pronounces the clearly captivated listener.

Literally placing them into a different time and space, Spitfire Audio subsequently handpicked thousands of extraordinary sounds from those extraordinarily vivid recordings, really resulting in a so-called ‘world synthesizer’ since ORBIS users are able to delve deeper into some of the most rare and distinctive sounds and loops on the planet, rich in history, character, and emotion encompassing a range of cultures and communities, many of which no longer exist; enhancing every sound still further with ORBIS’ own exploratory eDNA is inevitable.

Imagine the eDNA engine as a set of two turntables alongside a highly-sophisticated DJ mixer. It includes two sound bays — A and B, each designed to create differing sonic treatments, with individual and independent modulators and control of TRIM, BEND, GLIDE, CLONE, TUNE, ADSR (envelope), HI-PASS (filter), LO- PASS (filter), and WOBBLE (modulating VOLUME, PITCH, and FILTER). Furthermore, the GATE SEQUENCER allows for independent gating of those two bays and unified control of amount, speed, and LENGTH of sequence. These two signals are then unified with an x-fader; move between the sounds with the mouse or the factory default-assigned modulation wheel. Elsewhere, eDNA’s five-stage FX (effects) path contains 41 custom plug-ins, including preloaded bespoke IRs (Impulse Responses). The BAY A FX and BAY B FX stages affect sound bay A or B, while an AUX FX stage can be sent via the layers or MASTER FX stage.

Obviously ORBIS easily enables sonic journeying of its own doing. Discover hundreds of presets treated in various ways, with Spitfire Audio’s acclaimed sampling expertise and technology twisting and turning every sound through 3,000 lines of code! Some sound subtly manipulated while others are heavily processed, unrecognisable from their original source material.

Musically-speaking, ORBIS travels far — from playable one-shots and short phrases to tuned and untuned rhythmic loops and recordings up to a minute long. Ultimately, unearthing sounds with subtle movement, complexity, and evolution is an ear-opening experience. Throbbing basses and pulsing loops, ideal for dance music; thunderous drones, subsonic low-end and visceral, tortured drum hits, for adding movement and depth; Blade Runner-style synths, made from antelope horns; and ethereal pads and breathtakingly beautiful evolving textures, for three-dimensional cinematic soundscapes… the very nature of ORBIS’ design takes its users to new levels of sonic exploration and adventure. A lifetime of inspiration as an essential resource awaits anyone creatively climbing aboard.

As to the finished product’s potency, Paul Thomson is clearly qualified to comment, enthusiastically ending on a high note: “This is a really rich tapestry of sounds; it’s almost like a new kind of ‘world synth’ which goes from the raw sounds that are incredibly useful all the way through to beautiful, undulating, evolving textures made from these incredible organic recordings.”

ORBIS can be purchased and digitally downloaded as an AAX-, AU-, and VST-compatible plug-in that loads directly into a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) for a time-limited introductory promo price of £229.00 GBP (inc. VAT)/$269.00 USD/€269.00 EUR (inc. VAT) until August 1, 2019 — rising thereafter to an RRP of £299.00 GBP (inc. VAT)/$349.00 USD/€349.00 EUR (inc. VAT) — from here: https://www.spitfireaudio.com/shop/a-z/orbis/

New Sequencer One – Just £7.00 – A digital recreation of the classic Sequencer Drum

SEQUENCER ONE is a digital recreation of an 8-step CV/Gate sequencer classic: The rare SEQUENCER DRUM, produced by EHX during the early eighties. It’s a little silver, black and green metal box with only one single square analogue oscillator, eight steps and a few simple controls for pitch, decay and speed rate.

It was originally named SEQUENCER DRUM because it had to be triggered/started with the hit of a drumstick on its trigger pad.

Puremagnetik releases a new album and the tools used to build it

Puremagnetik Tapes is pleased to announce its fourth release: Quetico, from sound artist and composer – and Puremagnetik founder – Micah Frank. It is a free (name your price) digital download until August 12th. It is also available on limited edition cassettes.

Quetico is a flagship recording for the label and lies close to the roots of Puremagnetik. Frank himself considers the album to be collection of “sound sculptures,” sonic objects in part assembled and in part sculpted from the basics of waveforms, timbres, and the concrete sound-objects of field recordings. (see more details in attached press release)

Bandcamp: https://micahfrank.bandcamp.com/album/quetico

Puremagnetik Tapes: https://puremagnetik.com/collections/tapes

Grainstation-C | An Open Source Granular Workstation with Ambisonics

Frank has also published an open source performance workstation designed to build realtime, evolving sound sculptures  – with optional ambisonics.

Harnessing the audio processing power of Csound, Grainstation-C seamlessly integrates with a Novation LaunchControl XL Mark 2 (easily modifiable for any other controller) and can processes 4 disk tracks and 3 live input streams.

You can save any state as a snapshot and morph to that snapshot at any point in a performance. It has 6 independent pitch delay lines, 6 switchable low pass and high pass filters, live audio looping and multiple granular processing controls including granular time-stretching, frame animation and granular pitch shifting.

Frank built the program to farm textures and granular structures for his latest album Quetico – out now on Puremagnetik Tapes. With this work he has recently been awarded a 2019 NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellowship in Music and Sound from The New York Foundation for the Arts.

XTA introduces MX36 console switching system

From sticky notes to rolling luggage, every once in a while a new product comes along that is so uniquely simple in its function and usefulness that engineers everywhere slap their own foreheads and ask, “Why didn’t I come up with that?” In the world of professional concert sound reinforcement, audio engineers are already quickly recognizing XTA’s newly launched MX36 DSP Enabled Console Switching System as the next solid contender for that distinction.

Designed to offer a solution to the longstanding problem of routing multiple mixing console outputs to a system processor and/or loudspeaker system, the dual-rack-space MX36 can potentially accommodate as many as nine consoles via 36 inputs across Analog, AES and Dante networks. Inputs are arranged in sets of four to support standard left, right, front-fill and sub feeds from each individual console. All AES inputs have sample-rate conversion, and there is one set of four outputs, available simultaneously across Analog, AES and Dante networks, with word clock output sync available on AES.

All switching takes place in the digital domain with soft crossfades, primarily to switch up to three consoles, each with up to three levels of redundancy. The primary and secondary sources may be selected depending on the availability of support on each console—so AES or Dante, or even just analog—and the MX36 constantly monitors signal integrity and will auto-select the selected highest priority secondary source seamlessly should the primary fail. If failover with redundancy is not required, the MX36 can handle up to nine consoles, accommodating three each on Analog, AES and Dante. Furthermore, the Dante buss allows for units to operate in either cascade or parallel modes to extend the input set sizes or number of consoles that may be simultaneously switched.

In addition to the quad channel sets for the consoles, there is a fully featured, high quality mono mic preamp for announcements. This has selectable routing, as well as clarity filtering in DSP and switchable 48V phantom power. A stereo line input for background music is also available, again with “sweetening” filtering, selectable routing and fully balanced rear XLR inputs, plus an unbalanced 3.5mm jack front panel input. Just as important as the extensive switching and automatic routing capabilities, the MX36 also has full headphone monitoring of every line individually, including redundancy channels, and is visualized on extended PFL style metering.

All of this is fully user-configurable via front panel controls, with no need to connect a computer or depend on an app with a wireless connection. There’s no way for the device to be tampered with remotely, and once settings are locked down, the engineer can step away, safe in the knowledge that the MX36 will keep the music playing, backed up with dual redundant power supplies and XTA’s 25-plus years of robust, quality DSP design.

“The MX36 is a perfect choice for festival sound companies and engineers that require a sonically transparent processor to patch and mix front-of-house consoles without requiring a computer,” says XTA Sales and Application Manager Richard Fleming. “It’s also ideal for those not wanting to be forced into using DSP that’s not designed for their needs, or which might be reliant on a complex remote setup.”

“The response from the engineers that have seen the MX36 so far at InfoComm, Glastonbury and Summerfest has been overwhelming,” he adds. “They’ve told us, ‘It’s a switcher by engineers for engineers to make console management easy.’ And the most common thing we’ve heard over and over is, ‘Why hasn’t someone come up with this product before now?’ That tells us we’ve got a real winner on our hands.”
