1 ~ NEW sale pack available via Isotonik Studios: IONIC FX3
“A set of source-reactive audio effect racks for refined tone-sculpting capabilities.”
The IonicFX3 pack is self-installing, meaning all you have to do is double-click it once and say yes to a couple of dialogue boxes for all devices to appear, categorized, in your core library.
Includes the following devices:
Ionic Filter A low-cut filter coupled with a high-shelf filter, which dynamically react to the input characteristics and to each other for organic attenuation. Ionic DeNoise A multiband denoiser which reacts to the input signal in an attempt to carefully preserve the original tone. AI Buss Glue Go-to buss compressor with parameters reacting to both input and output signals in realtime, in order to maximize its usefulness moment-to-moment in response to dynamic material. AI Track Comp Well-behaved channel compressor with parameters reacting to both input and output signals in realtime, enhancing makeup gain automatically while setting the dynamic threshold intelligently. Anionic Console An old-school vibe channel strip, meant for adding impact and color. Bright Valley Compressor A "mid-side serial mastering compressor" taking its routing configuration inspiration from a famous hardware mastering compressor but having its own distinct sound, this is actually 4 compressors: 2 in series each on the center and side channels. Exbandurator A "parallel bandpass expander-saturator", it's a super-useful, supremely easy to use tool to add a specific color to an audio source while otherwise leaving it intact. Ionic Bass Strip A channel strip specially calibrated for use on bass guitar and bass synth instruments, with ai-reactive self-leveling tone stack pots, parallel routing, and custom waveshape growl. Ionic Melody Strip A channel strip specially calibrated for use on virtually any instrument besides bass, with ai-reactive compander to mold dynamics, sensual tone-shaping controls, and sleek width enhancement. Ionic Space Mid-side reverb + delay which reacts dynamically to bloom during softer moments, curtailing itself during transients to preserve natural clarity. Ionic Tracking Place on an input channel during tracking to assist with the performer's monitoring. This allows for fine-tuning the sound in their ear for a more pleasurable recording experience.

“Instrument with 128 Unique Analog Vinyl Noise Loop Samples.”
This is a sampler instrument which is designed to play a loop of background vinyl noise which you can select from 128 unique samples, each with their own character. Some of the samples are primarily background hiss, but some also have pops, clicks, and other artifacts which can be useful as percussion elements.

An epic studio jam between Phat Kid, KdoubleU, and myself was recorded after a show on March 20th, 2015 (night of the “super moon”), which Phat Kid traveled from New Mexico to play at. We captured a range of timbres from his Waldorf Rocket synth, routed through tasty analog gear on the input line.
Huge thanks to SideBrain for hosting this device! Check out the site for more ableton grooviness to geek out on and grab.
Be sure to check out Phat Kid’s Music on Bandcamp.
This is some of my favorite music ever, and not just because i know him personally. It is truly tasty. He primarily uses Renoise to compose which is intriguing of itself.
This is the first of various “PK Rocket” instruments which will be coming out.
This instrument is organic, giving you slightly different results every time you press a key, and morphing randomly as a key is held. It is great for trippy, droning textures. It is encouraged to automate and process it to the moon and back. Just have fun.
