Sonalksis Releases TBK2 Digital Grimebox
Sonalksis is back in the news after announcing FreeG by taking the wraps off the second plug-in in their Creative Elements product lineup: TBK2 Digital Grimebox – The Ultimate Grime. The TBK2 is a creative sonic degradation plug-in, comprised of a bitcrusher, a downsampler, an adaptive bias and distortion algorithm, and a low pass filter.
TBK2 is efficient, intuitive and direct – and therefore very simple to use, providing great results with minimal effort, the interface and the options provided makes it easy to achieve a variety of sonic effects including, but not limited to:
â€¢Â Downsampling of audio to create subtle or not-so-subtle lo-fi effects
â€¢Â Bitcrushing of transient-rich audio to add emphasis
â€¢Â General bitcrushing tasks
â€¢Â Clipping of transient signals to enhance and excite top end energy
â€¢Â Use combinations of downsampling and bitcrushing to introduce harmonic distortion to fatten bass and other tones
â€¢Â TBK2 also contains a selectable low pass filter, providing more selective control of the elements to be effected.
â€¢Â Adaptive bias technology which is psychoacoustically optimised to generate flattering tubesque even order distortion
â€¢Â Four available modes of adaptive distortion
â€¢Â Three available lowpass filter types
â€¢Â Selective clipper-limiter threshold activation level
â€¢Â High quality, analogue-modelled minimum phase filters
â€¢Â 64bit floating point precision internal processing throughout
â€¢Â Ultra efficient processing, with specific optimisations for native processors
â€¢Â Zero latency throughput – absolutely no internal signal delay whatsoever
â€¢Â Creative Elements is available for Windows XP and OSX as VST/RTAS/AU versions including Universal Binaries for Mac Intel platforms.
The Ultimate Grime is available now and retails for €79.99 / $99.99 / Â£53.99. More information on the Sonalksis TBK2 Digital Grimebox.
