News Of The World...

by Chris Randall

Pew Pew Pew

That's the next Audio Damage VST/AU plug-in, right there. You'll meet it on Thursday.

In other news, as many of you know, our friend Jeremy Highhouse (man-about-town in PDX, the other half of RT60, and one of the nicest people you'll meet in this business,) lost his rather large video/audio modular due to theft a few weeks back, and as this modular was actually part of his livelihood, he's pretty much fucked.

After much hang-wringing and arm-waving, we decided to do this. Long story short, a $10 ticket gets you a swing at the Audio Damage Omnibus: everything we make, including hardware (a $2600 retail value.) The proceeds will go towards replacing Jeremy's modular so he can get back to work, and the remainder will go to the Children's Music Fund.

And finally, Sequencer 1, our next hardware product, is basically mostly working at this point, and we're about to pull the trigger on the production run. So this will be a busy week for us; expect a couple updates here, the release of Basic, and a whole mess of Sequencer 1 mediablitzen.

CR- my "Razor" reference was more about the cute looking graphic thingy rather than the sound. I'm sure "yes" is the right answer. Anyway looking forward to hearing the demos.

Razor's display shows the partials. Ours shows the activity of the mod sources. So, when it comes to animated partial display, Razor definitely kicks Basic's ass.

This thing's all analog, right? Cuz I only use analogs. How many analogs does it come with, and can you buy extras as add ons?

Sorry. Our tests show that it is only 36% analog.

". The insurance. ASCAP (and, I assume, BMI and SESAC) all provide fairly low-cost gear insurance. You should have that. Jeremy didn't. (Note that if your home is broken in to or burnt down or whatever, your homeowner's insurance will not cover your gear, either. It must be insured separately.) "

No insurance at all?
homeowner's insurance seems to be different there too. At least here in finland everything is covered. Including gear. Only problem is to define value of older gear like rare analog synths.

What does the Basic do what all other subtractives don't?
Ok, we get all the info in Thu, but still.
Not that i need another synth...

Very awesome of AD to help out with this raffle. Tix purchased. RT60 is awesome.

I'm surprised there are no other synths out there that have already used the name "Basic".

That's a pretty smart choice. I imagine it'll pop up anytime someone is googling "systhesis basics" or whatever.

There is a Reaktor ensemble called "Bassic," but I couldn't find a single VST or AU named that. I was surprised as well.

Sidebar: Unfiltered Audio have generously donated 20 copies of their entire product line to the raffle, so your chances of getting something for your ticket just went up by an order of magnitude. If you haven't had a look at G8, sort of a swiss-army tool of dynamics, you should definitely check it out. link []
