Winter NAMM 2009 sees the launch of Novationâ€™s first independent collection of VST/AU plug-ins
High Wycombe, U.K. (MuseWire) – Novation's Plug-in FX suite provides five key effects from Novation's illustrious synth heritage, including signature effects derived from the legendary SuperNova II. The five independent VST/AU plug-ins include Chorus, Delay, Tremelo, Phaser and the famously flexible, powerful filter featuring overdrive. Each and every one of them offers a significant upgrade from standard sequencer effects. The Novation filter plug-in is perhaps the most sought-after effect of the five. Modelled on the filter section of Novation's legendary Supernova II synthesiser, this powerful effect has an array of features and a unique sound that sets it apart from any other filter on the market.
An audio triggered envelope alongside five different filter types, three different octave slopes and a â€˜crunchy' overdrive dial, allow this filter to deliver a wide variety of dynamic filter modulation effects. Of all the filter types, the dual peak filter is rare in this day and age, but capable of delivering that signature â€œWOWâ€ sound â€“ a key ingredient for modern dance remixes. The filter also features a â€˜Q-Norm' dial, a resonance normaliser that reduces the signal level in relation to the resonance level; ideal for mimicking classic filters like those found on Moog and Oberheim synthesisers, or the Roland TB303.
The Novation Delay plug-in is an enhanced version of the Supernova II delay and an essential for any producer's arsenal. The delay can of course be used to bring an edge to guitars or to provide a slap-back delay for vocals. However, with the addition of a high- and low-pass in-line filter, it can also deliver funky dub-style effects or a psuedo tape echo. The various stereo modes offer yet more creative flexibility.
The Tremolo has never been seen before as a dedicated Novation effect. It is based on the panning section of the Supernova II. Depth and speed controls sit alongside a new â€˜Phase' control that brings another dimension to this effect, helping to produce fully variable auto-pan stereo spatial effects. Finally, the Chorus and Phaser effects directly model the same effects featured on the award-winning, industry-changing Novation K-Station synthesiser.
The Novation Plug-in Suite brings quality digital signal processing to a new level of affordability, placing sound-sculpting flexibility and professional solutions within reach of producers on even the tightest of budgets.
