Daevlmakr Media Releases Daevl.Plugs Audio Transmogrification Suite
Daevlmakr Media has released the Daevl.Plugs Audio Transmogrification Suite for Windows XP and Mac OS X. The Daevl.Plugs were built to bring organic qualities and non-repeating elements to electronic music and digital audio. The suite contains nine major plug-ins and nine CPU-light mini-plugs. Many employ random or chaotic processes triggered by peaks in the source material. Each has its own strengths, but every Daevl.Plug will transmogrify anything: voice, bass, guitar, synthesizers, drums, choirs of heavenly angels, etc.
Nine major plug-ins:
â€¢ daevl.cerberus: three delays in a feedback network with time shifting, distortion via self frequency modulation
â€¢ daevl.cubedriver: a bitcrusher and pitchshifter inside a stereo delay loop. When feedback is engaged on the delay lines, audio is re-pitched and re-crushed on each new trip through the loop. A variable strength envelope follower brings the output back into shape
â€¢ daevl.hilbertspace: a delay network of three Hilbert-Transform ring modulators
â€¢ daevl.noise: replaces source audio with enveloped pitched and white noise. Three channels of pitched noise and a single channel of filtered white noise include random instability. A variable strength envelope follower brings the noise back into line
â€¢ daevl.sixcylinder: three dual-mono amplitude oscillators in a cat’s cradle delay network.
â€¢ daevl.threep: three networked pitch shifters with random pitch sweeps every n seconds.
â€¢ daevl.triad: three pitch class filters with selectable Q, cross-channel frequency modulation and overdriven distortion on each channel, followed on the composite out by a smoothly randomizing 5 band EQ peak synchronized to the source signal.
â€¢ daevl.triphase: three phase delays in selectable serial/parallel/hybrid configuration.
â€¢ daevl.triptych: three graphic multi-band filters in parallel, with time-shifting and feedback on each channel. Added controls for creating perfectly spaced comb filters and randomized frequency sieves of your chosen sonic density.
The Nine mini-plugs:
The Daevl.Plugs were created with Max/MSP/Jitter from Cycling ’74, a graphical programming environment for the manipulation of MIDI, digital audio, images and video. Pluggo, also from Cycling ’74, puts the power of Max/MSP/Jitter inside your audio applications as VST2, AU and RTAS plug-ins. VST2 is generally the most stable and full-featured of the various architectures. If your host supports multiple plug-in types, such as Ableton Live, use VST2.
â€¢ Standardized look and feel
â€¢ One-click randomization
â€¢ Host/MIDI automation
â€¢ HTML documentation
The Daevl.Plugs are currently available for Windows XP and in Universal Binary format for Macintosh OS X on both PPC and Intel based machines.
The Daevl.Plugs are available online now, at a price of $36 for the complete suite of 18 plug-ins. A free demo version is available. More information on the Daevlmakr Media Daevl.Plugs Audio Transmogrification Suite.
