PerforModule Mega Collections!

Restructuring

The PerforModule Pack Collections at Isotonik Studios have been restructured.

There are now 3 main collections which together comprise every one of my sale packs. These are by far your best deal ever at accumulating PerforModule goodies:

DynaMixing Ultimate

This consists of a single “mega” pack which contains a consolidated collection of ALL the racks from 6 entire previous packs: DynaMixing One through Five plus “Ionic FX”.
All devices from those packs are now accesible from a single browser location. Convenient!
These are tools designed for enhancing your workflow for mixing, allowing you to sculpt your sound with robust, innovative capabilities quickly. Many of them include “artificially inteilligent source reactivity” using envelope followers listening to different parts of the input signal to “automagically” modify parameters in real time.
Currently totaling 88 awesome effect racks!
Personally… i use racks from this pack all. The. Time. For mixing. So many of the tools are just the fastest and easiest way to get to a refined result i’m looking for. Down below you can check out some personal favorites and what i might use them for.

Clinicality Collection

These include packs which are of a technical nature, giving you a huge range of tools for very specific tasks. Be all scientifical about stuff!
Includes the packs:

  • Advanced Splytters
  • Amplitude Operands
  • Dephaultz
  • Groovification 1
  • Groovification 2
  • Harmonicality
  • Note Range Setters
  • Testy Mastering
  • Tranzmuterz & Electorz

Niche Collection

Here reside the fun, wacky, and creative batch of oddities providing instruments and effects for “niche” purposes, great for when you want to be spontaneous and just make stuff.
Includes the packs:

  • Bussification
  • Drum Enhancerz
  • Guitaritis
  • One Knob Wonders
  • Planetary Convolution
  • PMX FX Plus
  • PerforModucussion
  • Uno Plus Series

 

Update News

“Advanced Splytterz” has been given a substantial overhaul:

  • now includes: “CenterSides Splytter”, “Ridiculous Splytter”, “FreqSplytter 3-Way”, “FreqSplytter 3-Way MBD”
  • devices given unified layouts
  • it’s now more obvious where you’re supposed to drop effect chains in all splytter devices
  • frequency splytter devices have flatter neutral spectra
  • device name changes: “bell splytter” renamed to “focus splytter”, “way” splytters renamed as “freqsplytters”, “lo-hi” to “low-high”, “LeftRight” and “MidSide” changed to “L-R” and “M-S”
  • various minor fixes

 

“Guitaritis” New Rack

  • Taylor Tuning

I’ve been tuning my acoustic guitar with taylor tuning for a awhile, as i find it beautifully takes care of the intonation issue of chords being perfecly in tune in one position on the neck and being off-tune in other positions.
To use this rack correctly, make sure you turn “auto” on and switch the control to each string before you tune it, as each is tuned to a different target. To harmonize with A440-tuned digital instruments, i like to tune it so the attack of notes is shown a touch sharp while the sustain of a held note parks itself on the given note target.

 

New Pack: “performoducussion”

Custom-sampled percussion instrument sets. Each update includes a new instrument or set of instruments, each with unique macro control fucntionality to enhance their usability.
This new pack is going to keep growing with time. Once you buy it, you will have access to all future updates until it tops out at ten instrument sets.
Currently included are:

  • Tinkular Chimes
    22 different suspended chime melodic mallet instruments
  • Newton’s Percradle
    instrument and midi tempo map crafted from a newton’s cradle
  • Toy Gears
    rotating gears with rampable speed for sound design
  • BrokWurl
    2 weird wooden percussion instruments from a broken, dilapidated instrument found outside

…more on the way!

 

DynaMixing Ultimate New Racks

  • TiltBand EQ
  • TilBand EQ (L-R)
  • TiltBand EQ (M-S)

 

Gifts that Keep Giving

All of the new packs and collections are presented with a “buy it once, keep getting future updates” philosophy in mind. Looking at all the subscription options available around nowadays, i personally find myself overwhelmed by the idea of being locked into monthly payments in order to continue to use audio production tools. At the same time, nobody wants to buy and own something only to have it become obsolete or invalid later, having to then fork out more for the latest and greatest goods. I don’t really like the dichotomy between the two models.

So… i’m attempting to combine the best of the “purchase” vs “subscription” models.

This is exemplified in the performoducussion pack, as is includes a roadmap eventually giving it more than double its initial value, but the concept will apply to all packs. New effect racks or instruments will periodically be added to packs, and when that happens, if you’ve bought the pack, you get the update, including the new effect rack. This way i can also focus on maintaining my current catalog, keeping it polished, modern, bug

Buy a pack once and not only do you get the joy of immediately diving into its racks to get cracking on your own creative endeavors, but you also get the warm and comforting knowledge deep in your tummy that more cool stuff will be coming at you in the future. And you won’t have to do anything but sit there and grab it when it comes at you.

Brand new effect racks for DynaMixing Ultimate, Clinicality Collection, and Niche Collection,as well as new performoducussion instruments, are currently in the pipeline!

New Packs

Guitaritis
guitaritis
A deluxe suite including combo amp racks making the utmost of Live’s built-in Amp and Cabinet devices, “Stomper” effects designed like guitar pedals and guitar Chord presets.
Stuff it comes with…

Combamps a whole bunch (30) of combo amps which are crafted to optimize Ableton Live’s built-in Amp & Cabinet devices to their utmost. These racks make it much easier to dial in your sound (combination of preamp drive, tone, envelope settings, biasing, and gain structure) without having to constantly adjust the output level to match as well. They also optimize your timbre selection options by providing many “dual” and even three “triple” racks, which combine and balance the tone of multiple amps. In testing, these multi-combamps have been much-appreciated for an expanded range of unique amp flavors, as you now basically have 30 unique amp models, instead of 6. All combamps have been gain-staged at multiple points in the signal chain using both Peak and LU matching with both “Strat”and “Les Paul” styles, as well as bass electric guitars. The dual & triple combamps are gainstaged with a system resulting in relatively balanced levels at all gain settings when using wide panning (so that one amp is not way louder on one side than the other one). Since every guitar has its own tone & envelope character, these values are guaranteed to be imperfect, but it should result in you only needing to make miniscule volume adjustments to fine-tune your ultimate sound.
Post Amp Compressor a simple compressor with settings calibrated ideally for taming an amp output’s transients.
Guitar Chords 35 presets for Chord based on actual human guitar fingerings.
Stompers 18 racks set up like guitar pedals, designed for use with a Combamp akin to a physical guitar routing setup.  If you have a midi foot controller you can use them exactly as such. Includes…
Booster
Chomper
Comper

Dister
Dualay
Flonger
Gater
Glitcher
Phozzer
PitchDownDelay
PitchUpDelay
Smevel
Somber
Sproing
Swamper
Toner
Tremotary
Whamper

Groovification 2
groovenose
A robust collection of groove files which implement rhythmic “chop” effects in quarter, eighth, and sixteenth-note patterns.
Stuff it comes with…

Chopper Grooves 302 of them! Drop a Chopper Groove onto an audio OR a MIDI part, make sure your global groove amount is up, and hear it do its thing. Drop different Chopper Grooves onto different tracks… then when you turn global groove amount up… they all start chopping in their own way.

Harmonicality
harmo
Audio effect and MIDI racks designed for enhancing and manipulating harmonics by various methods.
Stuff it comes with…

Harmonic Colorizer enhance harmonics using various different methods. By using different amounts of each knob, you can set up your own unique boost texture to help a part stand out against its various song elements, or use it to subliminally add a particular color to a submix or mix.
Overtone EQ (3 versions) EQ racks set up to select a target frequency, and then manipulate the harmonics based on that frequency. The Even & Odd version allows separate control of even & odd harmonics. The Even vs Odd will boost Even or Odd and attenuate the other (useful for hearing the difference between those types of harmonics). The Sculptor version is useful for manipulating each harmonic interval individually.
Undertone EQ (3 versions) just like the Overtone EQs, but these manipulate lower harmonics instead (not as common of an operation). They include the same 3 versions.
Harmonic Chord Presets these will add in MIDI notes based on harmonic intervals. Simple, but useful. Includes 2nd through 4th harmonics which each add only 1 note and also CoarsePerfect, and Undertone versions which each add multiple harmonics.
Harmonics Extender (3 versions) MIDI racks which can be used to set (& automate) the amount of added harmonics. Includes CoarsePerfect, and Undertone versions.

Amplitude Operands
ampop
Utility presets allowing to divide or multiply level according to Sound Pressure Level, Acoustic Intensity Energy, and Perceived Loudness Sensation.
Stuff it comes with…

Sound Intensity by Energy (Utility Presets)
Sound Loudness by Sensation (Utility Presets)
Sound Pressure by Voltage (Utility Presets)
divide or multipy audio level by either “SPL”, “SIL”, or “Volume”. This is technical stuff. Check out http://www.sengpielaudio.com/calculator-soundlevel.htm for more info. Basically…
-use SPL (voltage) division when you want to sum parts perfectly (i.e. 5 copies of something each divided by 5 SPL and recombined will equal the exact level of the original)
use SIL (energy) for acoustic energy calculations. Like, let’s say you’ve got a really small sound, like a pin drop. Multiply it by 100 SIL to estimate the level provided by 100 pins dropping at the same time.
use Volume (loudness) for the human perception of level.
So, to make something seem twice as loud, subjectively, multiply it by 2 Volume.
There are also included some racks to choose/automate which multiplier/divisor to use:
SPL Divisor

SPL Multiplier

Volume Divisor
Volume Multiplier

Note Range Setters
noterangemash
An assortment of midi racks, primarily for composers, which filter incoming notes according to standard instrument & vocal ranges, plus tools for making custom note ranges.
Stuff it comes with…

Note Range Setter (Absolute) define a playing range by setting the lowest and highest allowable notes
Note Range Setter (Relative) define a playing range according to distance from a root note
Note Range Blocker (Relative)
set a sub-range of notes to block from being played within a range

Includes individual MIDI racks for a vast range of classical and folk instruments, as well as standard vocal ranges:
Brass
36 instrument ranges
Exotic 2 instrument ranges
Guitar & Plucked 58 instrument ranges
Mallets 8 instrument ranges
Percussive 5 instrument ranges
Piano & Keys 14 instrument ranges
Strings 15 instrument ranges
Voices 35 vocal ranges
Winds 88 instrument ranges
Simply set a note range before a MIDI instrument to allow it to only play notes within that range.

performodule’s first guest Device- the Subaqueous Kick Selector

Need kicks? Here we have for you this free Kick Selector courtesy of http://www.subaqueousmusic.com/  ~ the (aqpm) Kick Selector, chock-full of sweet kick samples.
Subaqueous sent me the rack and i tweaked it to be able to harmonically match whatever key your song is in.
It’s always nice having more kick drums to choose from, as the kick drum is a very important component of almost any song.
This rack includes a tasty selection of kick samples, all set to the same pitches and volume levels for easy swappability (is that a word?).

This rack works well playing as just an isolated kick drum when you need one for your song, or you can replace the kick on the drum rack you are working on with this (just drop it over that slot to replace), if you’d like to change it up.

Download it for FREE immediately by CLICKING HERE.

Macros_

“Kick Selector” – select your kick from amongst 9 choices
“Velocity” amount kick’s volume is affected by input strength
(set this to zero if you want your kicks always at full volume.. higher if you want input pressure to affect volume)
“Pitch” – sets the root note of the kick sample from C0 to C1. At default of 64 it happens to be a G#/Ab. Set it to an important fundamental pitch of your song’s key for harmonic swagger.  You could even modulate it to switch to a different root note for different song sections.
“Saturate” – sets the amount of saturation and limiting. If the kick sounds weak in the mix to you, turn this up. If it sounds too distorted, turn it down.
“Attack, Decay, Sustain & Release” – your standard ASDR controls. If you’re yet not familiar with what the heck “ADSR” envelopes are, check out http://audio.tutsplus.com/tutorials/production/an-introduction-to-adsr/

New free audio effect rack: “Eroduxion”

Eroduxion imageEroduxion

PerforModuleEroduxion:
Combines the total capabilities of the Redux and Erosion effects in one device (set in parallel), with the ability to fade between them.

Next time you feel like using some Erosion and/or Redux on a track, try this effect rack instead and save yourself a sec.

Stereo Panning Trick:
~Use the Pan Controls in the rack chains to separate the erosion and redux channels, one to the left and one to the right (the same value). Then use the performodule ‘Low Centerer’ effect rack immediately after ‘Eroduxion’ in order to prevent your low-frequency content such as kick drums from getting panned outwards.

Get yourself Eroduxificated for free by clicking THIS HERE LINK.
