[GOOD STUFF, BUT YA GOTTA HURRY! OFFER ENDS March 1, 2013]
Prodyon, Dennis Lenz's imprint for creating VSTs, Kontakt instruments, and sound libraries has decided to shutter. In a very generous move, Prodyon will hold a final sale, a classy way to close a chapter of work, and an intriguing introduction to those who may not be familiar with their work, to entice them to keep an eye out for Mr. Lenz's future efforts.
For $15, users will receive an email with download instructions, links, passwords and archive decryption codes for these products:
Agonyx 1.0 VSTi.
Livemachine v1.3, Livemachine LE v1.3, and the Livemachine Soundpool.
Phenome v1.71, including a rich, two-part factory library, and Ambient Textures Vol 1 and 2, a great pair of expansion libraries.
Shortnoise VSTi, Shortnoise for Kontakt and the accompanying demo content.
VOTOX for Kontakt, with supporting soundfont content in both SF2 and SFZ formats.
and Dennis includes the Breathe v1.0 Multi FX VST Plugin as an additional bonus.
Note that these are described at http://www.shortnoise.com/ -- the splash graphic is an imagemap, so click on the images you see on the page to learn more. Additionally, most of these are documented elsewhere on KVR, so I won't repeat that information here. I will note that both Vimeo and YouTube feature informational videos regarding Prodyon work, so some Googling will help new users settle in.
All Plugins are Windows VSTs and current/latest stable releases, tested on Windows XP, Vista and 7 using 32 Bit environments. For 64 bit use, Dennis notes that "jBridge has proven to be excellent."
Existing customers can still access the site and archive downloads and such, but in early 2014 the site will close. He/They will still answer support emails and questions but won't be updating the products further.
Prodyon will work in other directions like music production, media design and the like.
I've purchased this bundle and can vouch for the quality. I'll note that as recently as January 10th 2013, Prodyon were announcing new product plans here on KVR, and some of these VSTs retailed for US$200. I've been very impressed by the quality and engineering, and readily recommend them-- even if you're already drowning in softsynths and sample libraries. There's a lot of value here.
It's hard to celebrate Prodyon's closing, but I think this promotion to spread their efforts more widely is a fitting tribute.
