Johannes are playing live with his project Odex as part of the Norbergfestival evening the 7th of Mars at Slakthuset in Stockholm. The main act is Black Sun Empire so everything is set for a epic, memorable evening.
We’re featured in Simón Bustamante’s excellent Podcast Varvtal (Swedish word for RPM) this week. It’s in Swedish and there’s no subtitles (duh) so if you don’t speak Swedish you’ll have to pretend you understand, but you have to listen!
All our VST plugins will be donate-ware from now on and to try our new license model we’ve released two plugin upgrades.
Changlelog GranMa 2.0:
- Added a simple Freeze button
- Added a timer so you know the length of the buffer (Feature request from user)
- Changed the behavior of the release
- Made the playback engine a bit more smooth (less glitch, clips and crackle)
- Dry/Wet control make more sence
Changlelog Binvert 2.0:
- You can now disable the resonator in both bands
- Added a simple brick wall limiter
- Added a bypass button, easier handling for mastering purposes
- Added a side chained ADSR
- Added the ability to totally turn off the bands
- Added a incoming gain button
- Added wet / dry control
There’s a free download, fully functional and 100% to use both privately and commercially but with one difference, they’re black and white. To get the color version you need to donate. When you donate you’ll get the download links for all the donation-ware so as time pass by and we release more plugins you’ll have a better and better deal. If you already donated and want a future upgrade or plugin, just e-mail us your Pay Pal transaction info and we’ll send it to you.
We have two (2) new plugins ready but we wont release them just yet since we need to sort out our EULA and other details first. But here’s some teaser pics of our new babies:
Binvert now has a ADSR to control that extra bass (if you want to, it’s toggle-able) and GranMa now got a timer, freeze function and the record button flash when the plugin gets audio.
If our beta version of GranMa 2.0 doesn’t get too beat up by our testers we’ll probably release it in a couple of weeks. We’re thinking of start to sell some of our plugins just to cover our server costs (maybe $10 or so) but we’ll see, nothing decided yet but thought to give a heads up.
We reworked the granular engine a little bit and we added a simple freeze function that will do just that with just the push of a button. Keep your eyes and ears open…
Tonight at 7 pm at BAS in Bandhagen, Stockholm we’re invited to play at an event called Helgen Innan Löning. We’ll do an impro set with pianist Johan Zakrisson and saxophonist Fredrik Ljungkvist. Although we’re tired from an intense two weeks and just recently got home from Münich, Germany we really look forward to do this.
We just met Fredrik for about half an hour where we just kinda made sounds together and decided that we’d do total free impro… so that’s cool. We’ll record the session and if it’s good enough you’ll hear it in a few weeks.
In Münich we played with our laptop quartet Memo Cassette at a really great stage called Offene Ohren, not only were everything excellent prepared but the crowd was great too! We recommend everyone to go there if you pass Münich.
