rhec vsti soft synth

As many of you now know I’ve repaired the problem with RHEC that was stopping it from remembering changes to it’s knobs & button settings. I originally discovered the problem by accident myself as I use the synth a lot in my music and other projects.

Download from here

If you discover any other problems with RHEC then please let me know in the comments section below or on the RHEC synth page

Hi there VST fan, in late december of 2012 I released a song thru CDbaby called Do Me. I thought it’d be fun to make a music video to go along with the song, it’s a diy job but I reckon it turned out pretty well. In the song there’s 2 synths that are layered to make the bass sound, the bottom end of the bass is actually my ProjectX1 bass synth which you can download for free here.

The video ended up being a lot more work than I anticipated but I enjoyed it, if you like it please share it around.

As you can see theres no Gui yet cause I’m still working on the mechanics of the synth,but I won’t be verbally going through any of the features cause they’re not all finalized as yet,and also for other reasons.

Sonix vst pluginSonix V2

Kvraudio wrongly titled this plugin as a vsti instrument, it’s still a vst plugin, but now with the option to be triggered from midi(I guess it’s debatable). Cubase allows you to send midi to vst plugins, so I made use of that, there’s no pitch recognition it only sends midi note on and off messages.

Now incorporating 2 granulators and LFO options. You’re audio is about to be sent to the moon and back!

Came across this worthwhile sample pack whilst surfing the net called the ‘Hard & Bouncy Volume One’ from The Serious Sounds Network,now I’m never one to turn down royalty free sample packs cause I always need access to a big library of sounds,the more the better’.

So this is a pack of 500 samples in wav format and are all conveniently arranged in categories which makes life easier. So in the collection you’l get Hihats, Cymbals, FX, Acid, Donks, Hoovers, Claps, Snares, Stabs, Synths and more,and they even include the cd/cd case graphics – kool”.

I hav’nt listened to the pack yet but I’m sure it’l be good’.

Hi kids been quite a while since my last post,some good news for you>I’m busy building a new synth – yes brand new,not an update and I guarantee its gonna sound very cool and it will also be ‘free’.Its gonna be including about 4 oscillators and a few little tricks to set it apart from other synths in the same vein.

Can’t tell u the name jus yet cause in the past I was working on a synth which I had a name for already and posted news on its progress on my website before it was released.About 1 month later I saw someone else’s newly released synth with the exact same name of my synth in progress,oh well stupid me for posting the name of my synth b4 it was released!

That’l teach me”.

The AA Pro donation preset pack started off as 30 presets, but now I’ve finished upgrading it to 50 presets which includes weird fx, cool pads, alarms, leads, bass’s and more. Don’t mean to blow my own horn so to speak, but this is a ‘must have’ upgrade that gets the most out of this synth.

The demo is still based on the old version of the 30 preset pack, but you can click on a link that shows you a pic of the full 50 presets.

The other day I was checking out my older vst plugin called xflanger (you can find out about it at JC Productionz if your not yet familiar with it,click the JC Productionz link in the Blogroll to the right).The original plugin had no automation support and no presets or support for them,I really wasn’t intending on updating this plugin so soon but I thought I’l jus add autmation support and some presets and leave it at that and not promote it.

So as what usually happens when I start tinkering with something,I could’nt stop fiddling with it and now I’ve been tweaking the gui with new knobs etc and if I do say so myself – its looking pretty spick!Cause of the amount of work I’ve accidently put in to this minor? update,I’l be doing an official release within the next 2 weeks when it will also become available for download”.

In november of 2007 after getting back from a month in indonesia I’ve been finding it difficult to get back on track with getting some more vsti plugins out there,probably mainly cause of all the computer issues I’ve been having for eg. recently my sata hardisk packed it in totally and would’nt even spin up any more which was very strange.Damn thing took ALL of my audio work down with it and made me very sad,its failure had something to do with motherboard/cpu temperatures oddly enough.

But it was lucky that I build my synths/vst plugins on my internet drive which is located on a separate IDE drive,so very thankful for not losing that work.Things are getting much better now with the computer finally working nicely with a new sata hard drive.

The synth I’m working on is not too far from completion,but it’l be a kool little synth you’l want to get your hands on when it’s finished.

ProjectX1 is my new bass synth featuring some fat bottom end and urban bass sounds and many editing parameters all contained in a reasonable size synth,tried to condense everything so it would’nt take up too much of your screen area. This synth features subtractive,fm,phase distortion and unison synthesis. It’s basically a monophonic synth but has a pseudo stereo mode also and features 2 filters,2 adsr’s,mod envelope generator,2 modulation matrix’s with 24 possible destinations each and the source signals can also be inverted and more. There’s two effects types which are tube amp simulation which allows you to control gain,clip,speed,cap,bias,shape and mix and also a bit crusher with selectable modes of operation.
A unison oscillator has been added but the synth does not operate in unison mode. Peak follow is available and can grunge up the sound a bit more. Most of the knobs/sliders can be controlled via midi/host automation and there’s also dual waveshapers or assymetrical waveshaping for want of a better term.

Hold on  to your seat – I’ll be bringing you a new version of my bass synth “ProjectX1” any day now. Users of ProjectX1 like possibly  yourself have told me that they love the synth but find the look of it rather uninspiring. As you can see in the picture I have changed the knobs/sliders and cleaned up the whole look.

New features include:

  • Multi core cpu support
  • 1 octave(selectable) of pitch bend
  • Attenuation button
  • New GUI and more….
  • Right-click on controls midi learn & midi cc selection

Here’s a pic of the updated interface:

Here’s a decent video tutorial I found on youtube for people who are new to vst plugins or are just having problems installing them.The author of the tut use’s flstudio as his application of choice but you can apply his guidelines to Your preferred music app(s)”.
