Klevgrand guitar effects and amps

STARK is a fully fledged amplifier simulator consisting of four modules: Amplifier, Cabinet, Room and effects slots. These modules are processing audio separately, which makes it possible to combine different amplifiers with different cabinets and rooms.

The amp module offers 12 different amplifier profiles. It has both a clean mode and a overdrive mode, an equalizer functionality (including presence), and a booster controlling the end stage amplification saturation.

Cabinet simulation consists of 10 different cabinets of various sizes and sound. This module also offers a stereo width knob that simulates the distance between two microphones put in front of the cone.

Room simulation offers 6 different kinds of rooms, where each room size can be changed between Small, Medium and Large. There’s also a decay parameter controlling reflectivity of the walls and a dry/wet mix.

The pedal board contains 4 slots where any of the 14 effects can be inserted. The order of the pedals can easily be changed using drag and drop.

Obs! STARK consumes a lot of CPU and RAM, so if you’re having trouble using multiple instances at the same time, try to freeze some tracks and/or increase the buffer size.

STARK is an AUv3 plugin that only works in an AUv3 compliant host like Garageband, AUM, Cubasis, Beatmaker 3, Auria etc.

Bitcrusher and resampler audio unit

Degrader is a combined resampler and bit crusher AUv3 plugin. It can be used to simulate the sound of vintage digital gear, as a lofi-effect or as a plain distortion unit. Since all parameters are fully automatable it’s a handy plugin for creating unique and interesting drops, sweeps and other transitions.

It also comes with a handful of factory presets.

Features:

• Resamples between 250 Hz and 96 kHz.
• Low pass filter with different characteristics both pre and post resampling.
• Bit depth can continuously be altered between 3 and 24 bits.

Fly Tape DAW Cassette Comparison
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Hello every body this is Jason Donnelly aka Dj Puzzle reporting for my website ipadloops.com and today I’m going to show you two cool new effects. Both effects emulate an old cassette tape meaning they can make your brand new sparkling mix sound like it was playing back on an old broken down tape player. On one hand we have Fly Tape by MSXII and the other DAW Cassette by Klevgrand. They are both unique in their own way and they were both released just recently within the past couple of weeeks so I wanted to do a sort of comparison review for both in one video. Now I noticed a lot of the demos for these apps show the app on a master buss affecting the whole mix so I wanted to demo them as an insert effect on a single track. In this case a midi track using an AU instrument.

*I should add “Head Quality” in DAW Cassette is the LoFi effect in that one I kinda rushed over it and skipped that info.

Use the playback controls to start and stop playing, and alter the module knobs/options to change how the audio is processed. When satisfied with the result, tap Export to render and save the finalized audio file.

Included DSP Modules:

Main bus processing

• High Pass filter
• Compressor
• Multiband Compressor
• MS Stereo Tool
• Equalizer
• Limiter
