Altair 4 - The SciFi Sounds Lab
for Wobbles, Drones and more

This lab is more of experimental type mainly for spacey & wobbly stuff, drones and scapes i.e FX-sounds, and it is quite good at doing bell like sounds ;-)
In a way it has some similarities to 'circuit bent' musical tools or noise boxes but with some more and fairly sophisticated controls - but not too much.
You can do a lot of crazy stuff with it ;-)

updated last public beta is here for dowload (little manual included & diff. patches)

The winner will have free choice for one VSTi Plugin from my range
2nd and 3rd choice will get registered version of this one.

And yes you may send patches too ... more than 20 useful patches will be honoured with a Pro version of this plugin.

have fun and please comment
thanks

How about "Knightmare"?

Knights are "dubbed." The drones are dark and scary.

Nice one ravasb! :hihi:

HG might have to redo the GUI with chainmail though :D

Originally I was thinking of a name in German "Das Dräuen" roughly to be translated with scary looming but even this translation doesn't reflect the meaning of "Dräuen" as it is also hinting at pending dark doom ... so this won't be a feasable name for outside german speaking countries :-(

How about "Pandora's Box" for the name?

I'm sure I'll think of more...

It freezes up in Sonar 7 despite it passing VST scan okay. Works in standalone though.

sorry, to hear about that. Are there any related messages or is it just freezing?

It freezes upon loading and just hangs. No error message. I tried it a couple of times and I have to manually shut down Sonar. Too bad as it is very cool and I would really like to lay out a few tracks. But, like I said it works in standalone via SaviHost no problem.

I have never had this problem with any of your synths before and I have tried many of them.

That's quite strange as there is really nothing that exotic inside to provoke such a behaviour ... runs here in several hosts like Cubase LE, Cantabile, MiniHost, VSTHost ...

Anyway I'll look for a possible suspect ...
