Audio Damage Spring Sale...

by Chris Randall

Yes, it's that time again! Our bi-annual sale in the Audio Damage store has come 'round again, to meet all your plug-in needs! Use the code "EASTERPIG" at checkout to get 40% off your entire order. Note this doesn't include hardware, which we don't sell directly.

EDIT: All done now. Thanks, everyone!

Also, a general update on the State Of Affairs with regards to all things Audio Damage. Adam is currently working hard on the next hardware product, which we hope to unveil at the Trash_Audio meet on May 24th in Portland. (No promises there; this product is far more complex than what we've previously released, and is proving somewhat reticent to being born.) While he does that, I'm dealing with the plug-in line for the most part.

With regards to that specifically, I have the DRM removed from the following products:

Discord 3
Ratshack Reverb

The versions of these products in the store do not require a registration code, and have no DRM whatsoever. Vapor is next, and so on, 'til they're all done. The DRM removal has taken a bit of a back seat currently while I work on the next product, which is nearing beta testing stage. The only thing I'll say at this point: it is a synth. The rest I'll leave to your imagination and detective skills.

So, that's where we're at. Back to the salt mines!

Bought a couple items with the discount the price came out to $52.80, and I live in Denver... so that's numerological

My Sherlocky-Sense is telling me that you are working on a mono-synth of some kind based on some of your recent posts, so my money is on that (and will likely go towards that once released). Interested in seeing what you guys are cooking up!

Curious to see what the hook is for this synth. I'd be surprised to see AD release a boring monosynth.

Definitely, I wasn't thinking run of the mill mono synth either.

I'm experiencing great difficulty in deciding what to buy. Getting laid off really, really sucks.

This may come as a shock to some of you, but in order to stay in business, we do actually have to occasionally make some money. Everything can't be Automaton. :-)

"Everything can't be Automaton. :-)"

Quite. A new synth is cool. I'll be getting Phosphor eventually to complete my collection, but I already have a silly amount of synths, so it's not top priority.

I'll probably hold on a while till I get this new synth as well unless it has some really stand out unique features (which I'm sure there is a good chance of). For the same reasons as above.

However. What I would really like to see coming next would be some kind of drum/rhythm thing. Tattoo has a really nice take on the step sequencer concept. Axon is a lot of fun and capable of stuff no other plugin can do (TMK). I already have a silly amount of 'drum machines', also. But for some strange reason I am more addicted to them than synths.

I won't bother making suggestions for what I'd like to see, but I'm sure whatever you came up with would have me buying instantly. And lots of other people too.
Got the synth. Got the drums. Got the T-shirt.

Maybe then you can get back to work on Automaton 2 - The Automatonator!

Sweet, I'll update all my plugins, excited at any progress towards an AD hardware synth. It's a damn good time to be an electro fan.

Unrelated, but I'm looking to change my workflow and put one box in the center for sequencing and live performance.

Three things come to mind

* Midibox Seq v4 (with all the CV bells and whistles and high-grade components) since I'm not a crazyperson and don't trust myself with the completity level of the build + psu, should be

Ah, cut off due to brackets being stripped.

roughly $1200 total. Cheaper than a Cirklon?

* Octatrack- heard good things about the Elektron sequencing workflow + free sampling thrown in

* iPad + iConnectMIDI4+

Due to the complexity of the Seq line and general philosophy of UCApps, I can't find much in the way of unofficial demos or any local Seattlites to demo it for me. It's even harder to find someone who's played with any or all of these options.

Any opinions appreciated, thanks.

@chaosium - I have an iPad and an iConnectMIDI2 (so, similar to what you're looking at). If you've got the iPad already, this is obviously the cheapest route. iOS device integration aside, the iConnect series is an excellent MIDI interface and router. The control panel takes some getting used to, but I'm liking it now that I've figured it out.

I'll note this - to me, iPad apps feel kinda fussy for live performance. Particularly if you're looking at things to adjust note values or parameters on the fly. Another cheap option (or addition, as it could fit into the iPad+iConnect setup) would be looking at something like the Arturia Beatstep.
