CM special!… what can I say?

Posted in krakli, music, vsti with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 22, 2010 by krakli

Its quite a long way off, and I don’t see any point in getting all dressed up with nowhere to go but… here are a few spoilers.

  • It’s finished construction and already has a large number of patches.
  • It’s quite Blue.
  • It employs a similar idea to RMXL where you have two totally independent synths both with their own bend, mono-poly, arpeggio etc.
  • I have used its name once before many, many moons ago.
  • It’s architecture is a superset of an existing Krakli favorite.
  • Did I mention that it’s Blue.
  • The mag isn’t on sale until October so you have a little wait.
  • I will release more teasers and audio demos prior to that though.
  • It’s Blue.
  • It is quite a large GUI probably only usable on a 1024  x 768 screen, but most off you have them anyways don’t you?

So as is my usual way, I will be drip-feeding little bits of information about this in the coming weeks.. in the meantime lets see if  we can guess what the name of this plugin will be, if you remember I said I have used the name before, a long time ago!

Loadsa’ Clicks

I thought the following graph might prove interesting to some of you. It shows the items that have been clicked on the most in the last 30 days. As you can see the free synths seem to get the most downloads, and I was a little surprised not to see Cygnus at the top, but then I realised that some readers were clicking on the specific (SF & Space) links so if you add all 3 together..


The other surprise for me was that S3 was doing less well than S3B or S3K, plus I was amazed that Whooo was getting some attention as I had given it up as very esoteric.

Effects hardly got a showing with the exception of Isol8tor, perhaps I need to push those a little more?

CM Special well on its way

I was pleased to take possesion of the patches for the CM special from himalaya last night, and they were every bit as good as I have come to expect from him.

Because of editorial timescales, the plug-in won’t be available until June time, and I realise that CM is harder to get outside of the UK, but despite that this looks like being a good one.

 Hopefully once the CM special is put to bed we will be able to concentrate on getting the S3 series finished off. I was experimenting the other night layering  S3B with a plucked string synth and it sounded really really good.

Currently working on…

Finishing up the work on some of the S3 series.

S3K looks especially interesting as it has a full 32 stage, step sequencer built in and a filter with overdrive that can really squeal.


I am also working on another CM exclusive. I am prevented from giving too much away at the moment but it is a reworking of one of my favorite Krakli plugins. I believe that it will be available about June time..
