Avid has partnered with Eurorack synthesizer developer Noise Engineering and welcomed them to the Avid Marketplace, as they introduce their new plug-in line, featuring three brand new AAX plug-ins based on some of their most popular Eurorack modules.
Here's what they say:
Known for the unique, aggressive, and otherworldly sounds and textures their synthesizer and effect modules create, Noise Engineering has become a beloved favorite of modular synthesis aficionados from artists, producers, DJs and sound designers worldwide such as Martin Gore of Depeche Mode fame, film maker JJ Abrams, composer and producer Tori Letzler (TINYKVT), producer and songwriter Michael Bradford, and so many more. Kris Kaiser and Stephen McCaul, founders of Noise Engineering, embarked on their journey into plug-ins in response to customers who wanted plug-in versions of their current hardware, but also to help a wider audience who may not be familiar with the world of Eurorack and modular synthesis. Fast forward to the launch of these first plug-ins and a partnership with Avid, maker of Pro Tools software, and these tools are now within reach.
Launched at NAMM's virtual "Believe in Music" week, on Thursday, January 21st at 1:00 PM (PST), online attendees learned the news during a hosted session by Avid featuring Avid's Audio Evangelist, Greg "Stryke" Chin, along with the entire Noise Engineering crew, where the three new plug-ins (along with a discounted bundle) were announced and overviewed.
The three plug-ins launched are:
- Cursus Vereor - A dynamically generated wavetable synthesizer.
- Basimilus Iteritas – A universal drum synthesizer.
- Desmodus – A synthetic tail-generator reverb designed for creativity.
The individual plug-ins are listed at $49 (USD) while the bundle is listed at $119 (USD). The plug-ins are available at the Avid web store, exclusively as AAX plug-ins for Pro Tools, for a limited time.
Bringing the plug-ins to the AAX platform exclusively was a planned move. Says Noise Engineering's Kris Kaiser:
We work with a lot of musicians and sound designers, both professional and aspiring, and Pro Tools is the industry standard for so many people. We're thrilled to launch in AAX. We appreciate the work Avid has put into making AAX a no-compromises format, putting audio first, and allowing us to make our plug-ins sound their best (and noisiest). We're also excited to bring what we think are completely new ideas, algorithms, and workflows to the world of AAX.
