Native Instruments MASSIVE X Wavetable Synthesizer
Posted by Scott R. Garrigus

Native Instruments releases MASSIVE X Flagship Wavetable SynthesizerNative Instruments today releases MASSIVE X – the much-anticipated successor to one of the most popular synthesizers in the world. Designed and built from scratch, the new instrument builds on its heritage to rethink and redefine the possibilities of a virtual synth.

The original MASSIVE, having helped define the sound of modern genres such as dubstep and EDM, became synonymous with an exciting, forward-thinking approach to synthesis that unapologetically embraced its digital DNA. Famous for its intuitive interface and sonic potential – from enormous basslines and soaring leads, to evolving ambient textures – it quickly became a staple part of many production toolkits.

MASSIVE X is Native Instruments’ new flagship synth, built by the same team as its predecessor. Based on a state of the art architecture, it delivers pristine sound, and huge creative flexibility for artists and sound designers alike – allowing them to...

Voxengo OVC-128 Oversampled Clipper Plug-In
Posted by Scott R. Garrigus

Voxengo releases OVC-128 Massively-Oversampled Clipper Plug-InVoxengo is happy to release OVC-128, a massively-oversampled soft/hard clipping effect plug-in for professional music production applications, available in AAX, AudioUnit, VST and VST3 plug-in formats (including native 64-bit support), for macOS (v10.7 and later), and Windows computers.

OVC-128 is a massively-oversampled soft/hard clipping effect plug-in for professional music production applications. A common use for this plug-in is hard-clipping before the final peak limiter. This is an effective approach in contemporary electronic music when loudness is boosted using a clipper plug-in while minor excessive peaks are absorbed by a final peak limiter that applies no additional gain itself.

Clipping the tracks via OVC-128 is practically similar to clipping using high-quality outboard analog gear...
