Manifold audio samples

A number of people have commented on the lack of audio samples on our product pages. So, due to popular request, mp3s have been added to the Loomer Manifold page. Audio demos for Loomer Aspect and Loomer Resound will be coming shortly.

Aspect 1.4.2 released

Available as of now at the Loomer website, Aspect 1.4.2 is a minor update that contains a few fixes and enhancements:
  • An uninstallation script is now available for the Mac OS X version. This script, when ran, will completely remove any installed Aspect components.
  • Fixed an issue when the Aspect VST plugin is hosted by Reaper which could cause audio glitches when either changing programs, or editing Aspect parameters.
  • Any notes playing when the host transport is restarted are now stopped.

Shift: Diatonic, Pitch Shifted Delays

Loomer Shift, our new granular diatonic pitch shifter and delay effect has been released. As usual, it’s available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, and comes in a numerous amount of plug-in formats (VST, Audio Unit, RTAS, and Standalone.)

Shift Diatonic Pitch Shifter and Delay Effect Plugin
Shift has three independent delay lines, each one combining a fully fledged bucket brigade device style delay with a granular pitch shifter. Three different pitch shifting modes are available - in both Chromatic and Recursive modes the pitch shift amount is specified in semitones and cents, the difference between them being that in Chromatic mode the delay feeds back into itself, whilst in Recursive mode the delay feeds back into the pitch shifter. Finally, in Diatonic mode pitch shift is specified in diatonic intervals (eg, Unison, Second, Third) of a selected key and scale. The monophonic audio tracker then chooses the appropriate pitch shift in order to produce a harmony that is in key.

The free evaluation can be downloaded here, or, if you’re so inclined, a few choice audio examples can be heard here.
