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

Our spies were monitoring CM headquarters with their short-wave equipment when they stumbled upon this brief sound clip..

Experts believe that it may be a short example of the Krakli plugin destined for the June CM freeware special. We feel we are getting very close to the truth now!!

Layering Krakli plugs and a free version of S3k imminent

Posted in krakli, music, Uncategorized, vsti with tags , , , , , , on April 10, 2008 by krakli I discussed in a recent post I have been having fun layering the S3 pad synths with the CM special. This video should demonstrate that it is possible to acheive sounds very similar to the ill-fated RMP synth.

Also a free version of S3K should be added to the Krakli website very shortly. This will be a version that is complete except that it does not contain the sequencer panel, however everything else about it will be included, such as the arpegiator, Octaver and Ring-mod controls

.. which means that we can turn our attentions again to the S3 series. Himalaya was kind enough to send me this very short demo of one of the CM special presets. It makes use of one or two of the unique features that the plugin supports. Suffice to say that this plugin uses a few of the ideas from Krakli’s ill fated RMP plugin
