The following is lifted straight from the latest issue of Computer Music magazine:

The Great Plug-in Giveaway.

Get your hands on over 100 of todays best instruments and effects plugins, sequencers and other music-making essentials with our forthcoming Computer Music Special: The best free plug-ins ever!
We’ve spent months hunting down and testing the best the freeware scene has to offer to bring you this definitive, brand-new collection of studio tools. They are all on the included disc, and inside the mgazine you will find accompying tutorials and reviews plus a massive guide for total beginners showing you how to make a complete track from start to finish entirely in freeware.

So don’t waste your time trawling the net and sorting the useful freeware from the thousands of apps on offer – just grab CM special Vol 30 and get on with making music!

Out in the UK from June 18th, Europe from June 25th and North America form July 16th.

As mentioned Krakli features once or twice in the Mag and here is a (sensible) Screen-grab of the Specially commisioned plugin that will be featured.

Richman CM special

This version has some special features including the fact that each sound generating ‘line’ is totally independent meaning that they can have their own portamento, Glide or Mono/poly settings. Some of Himalaya’s patches show the mixed Mono & poly mode off to a very good advantage. Other changes include Envelope modulation of the pre-filters and a much wider tuning range for line two. The Magazine should contain a full blown tutorial on using Richman CM and I have also prepared a PDF users guide which may be included in the zip file. I will be adding a tutorial to my Youtube channel also

This week I will be mostly…

.. continuing work on a new synth called Arctic (Son of Chill perhaps?) With this one I have gone for a synth with a very strong sonic Character (in the same way that Cygnus has ‘a sound’). Cold and digital but at the same time with a lot of power and movement in the sound.. Early sounds coming out of it are very promising and it is proving to be light on CPU too.

The CM special is due out in Mid-June and I have it on good authority that Krakli is featured more than once in its pages. I believe that I will be getting a sneak preview of the cover soon and I will post it here when I do.

I have been arsing about with the spy-shots etc and I promise that i will be able to give you full details of its spec soon. Suffice to say that I was able to use some of the things that I learnt with RMP (the synth that never was) and include them on this one. I have received favorable comments about the interface also, so it will be interesting to see if it makes an impact with the readership.

SampleScience was kind enough to send me this demo track created using S3, S3B and S3K plus some drums.. Sample Science Demo track 3S

here is the quote from SampleScience:

“I’ve made a track with the 3 instruments, I think they are very good for ambient music (of course) very lush & stringy! Here’s the download link for those interested, all the sounds from 3S except the drums: ”

Many thanks to SampleScience
