Ultradia SE

Ultradia SE free oscillator by Hockinfinger

Ultradia SE is a free oscillator VST plugin developed by Hockinfinger. Compatible OS(s): Windows.

Ultradia is a unique brainwave entrainment architecture discovered by Dr. Diane Kistner. Derived from the frequencies of DNA, these special vibrations work to normalize a 90-minute human ultradian rhythm. Ultradia is broken into two 45-minute phases that gently but powerfully oscillate through the active and rest phases of a complete ultradian rhythm.

Ultradia SE is a VSTi for creating binaural beat brainwave entrainment tones. Created by Hockinfinger based on the original concept provided by Dr. Diane Kistner.

There are two tones created by this VSTi. The carrier tone is produced in the left channel.The right channel will be the sum frequency of the carrier tone and the frequency selected for brainwave entrainment. The tones are triggered by any MIDI note, and volume is controlled by MIDI volume controller #7. The tones can be selected via MIDI controllers 14 & 15.

Soprano Jug Drum

Soprano Jug Drum free soundbank by Embertone

Soprano Jug Drum virtual instrument is a free percussions and water jug sound bank for Kontakt, by Embertone.

What happens when you lock two sound designers in a space with 5 water jugs, 5 microphones, a laptop and an audio interface? Pure #[email protected] magic, that’s what! With oodles of round robins, 4 different playing styles, and a dynamic range equipped to shake things up, you’re going to love this instrument… It’s a new angle on the concept of “epic drumming”

The 4 playing styles are mapped out equally over 4 octaves. From highest to lowest they are: 1) Hand (muted) 2) Hand (ring out) 3) Timpani Mallet 4) Stick. This instrument is sooo much fun, we suggest trying it out with an arpeggiator!

The FREE version of Jug Drums is just the highest drum, the soprano, with full velocity/round robins, but without mic position mixing control. It’s a LOT of fun to play with!

SonicPhoto

SonicPhoto free audio-converter by Skytopia

SonicPhoto is a free audio converter plugin developed by Skytopia. Compatible OS(s): Windows .

SonicPhoto is an audio program to convert from pictures, photos and drawings to sound. Each picture has its own ‘signature’, and SonicPhoto will allow you to hear what the picture sounds like.

Higher parts in the picture create higher pitches, while lower areas create deeper tones. Likewise, brighter areas make that tone louder (and darker areas, quieter).

Also included is an instrument/harmony feature so you can create stunning tonal sounds, such as sparkling synths, rippling arpeggios, howling winds, deep organs, dazzling lasers, roaring bass and metallic drones.

Features include:

  • Create an infinite variety of sounds ranging based on the patterns in any picture.
  • Instrument and harmony quantization so you can create tonal sounds.
  • Dozens of in-built presets, so you can immediately try sounds out and experiment.
  • Convincing stereo is automatically added to all sounds.
  • Very easy to use GUI with everything you need at a click of a button.
  • Well thought out system to loading and save custom projects.
  • Instantly adjust the quality to suit your needs (low for preview, high for final result).

Uses:

Experimental composers will appreciate the otherworldly sounds SonicPhoto can produce with ease. Sounds lasting up to an hour in length can provide a backing soundtrack to a film, or be mixed with a piece of music to enrich the atmosphere.

On the shorter end of the time scale, sounds lasting less than half a second can be rendered, with all the aforementioned options such as tonality and frequency adjustment to hone the sound to your requirements.

Video demo:

See SonicPhoto in action with this video demonstration below (also see right for MP3 only samples).

Phase-Warper

Phase-Warper free software-synthesizer by DocNashSynths

Phase-Warper is a free software synthesizer developed by DocNashSynths. Available format(s): for Windows .

Phase-Warper features a sound production method called ‘Vector Phase Synthesis’, which distorts the phase of a sine wave by a 2-dimensional vector. As the co-ordinates of the bending point of the vector are varied, a wide range of wave shapes are produced, including ‘formants’ centred around harmonics of the fundamental frequency, creating human voice-like effects.

You can see from the screenshot that unlike traditional subtractive synths, there are no wave shape selectors or filters here, as the technique doesn’t require them.

Phase-Warper can be considered a ‘method showcase’ product as it introduces a novel synthesis technique via a functioning product, so as to bring it to the attention of other developers who may then choose to evolve and incorporate it into their existing or future products.

Of course Phase-Warper is useable as-is, as a stand-alone, unrestricted real time synth for producing a variety of new sounds and textures, just lacking in ‘trimmings’ like the ability to save and load patches.
