Wusik Debuts Wusik Tool Over-Sampler – Announces
Wusik has released Wusik Tool Over-Sampler, a VST instrument that allows you to perform 2 to 4 times over-sampling on a sound. Thus, if you are operating at 48khz, at 2x oversampling you get 96khz, resulting theoretically in a much smoother sound, with no aliasing. In the future, an option to Bypass ALL Over-Sampler instances will also be added, for quick turning off while playing, and on while rendering. That’s about all they’re giving us as far as a description on this product, so let’s move on…
Wusik also announced two other products, Wusik Tool Melody and Wusik Tool ARP. In Wusik Tool Melody, you play a chord in the lower section of the midi-keyboard, and the upper section white-keys will follow the chord you play. So, for instance, if you play 2 keys at the lower area, those 2 keys will be used for all the white keys on the upper area, going one octave up every 2 keys.
This way, you can just worry about the chords, and play anything on the white keys upper area, and they will stay on the melody. You can even build up a more complex melody by sequencing the lower area with several keys, lets say, 8 keys, and just play the white keys on the upper area while the sequencer plays the lower chords. A Sustain pedal can also be set to work only on the lower area. So you hold sustain, play several keys on the lower area, and the upper area will follow that logic.
Wusik Tool ARP allows you load a VST and use the arpeggiator. It will have basic, but also complex functions, for more advanced arpeggiator styles, compared to the regular ones. The feature list is yet to be determined.
Wusik Tool Over-Sampler costs $29.95 but is free to all users who subscribed to Wusik’s membership / magazine prior to 13th September 2007. A demo version is available for download. More information on Wusik Tool Over-Sampler.
