Forgotten Keys FK9 Hammond Auto-Vari 28 V.4.2 KONTAKT
This Hammond AutoVari rhythm unit was originally built into an old old Hammond Dolphin organ from the 1970s. Although it only had 7 rhythm buttons, each one had 4 variations so there were 28 rhythms in all. The unit itself included circuitry and controls for the organs auto-accompaniment section but no circuit diagrams or schematics were available to see how to access it.

Sounds
The FK9 includes isolated samples of the 7 analogue sounds of the AutoVari. Each sound has been sampled 8 times and is chosen randomly within Kontakt. They are, or course, accessible via a keyboard or DAW sequencer also. The sounds are in 24-bit 44.1KHz wav format.

Rhythms
Each of the 28 rhythm patterns have been re-created for Kontakt. They are not sampled loops, rather they are sequences that trigger the individual sound samples when needed. This is how a real drum machine works, only here we use samples instead of a sound generator circuit.

Setup
The Setup tab offers greater control over how the FK9 sounds and operates. There are volume, pan and tune controls for each sound. Incoming MIDI notes can be mapped to any rhythm. Random tune and volume controls add a little human element to the sounds.

Inside
Here’s what the AutoVari looked like inside. There was no case of course as it was enclosed by the organ cabinet. Some of the controls you see here were for the organs auto-accompaniment section.

Indiginus Solid State Symphony v1.4 KONTAKT Indiginus Solid State Symphony v1.4 KONTAKT

The technology of 1979.... Here today!
What would a virtual orchestra have sounded like if all you had to work
with was analogue synthesizers? It was a question that Indiginus felt
compelled to answer. Why? Well, probably because we're not very good
at market research, but also because we believe that composers can
never have too many tools to work with.


The 'orchestra' consists of Strings, Winds, and Percussion sections. Within
each section are elements that have assignable key and velocity ranges,
volume controls, and transposition. Also included are a gated pad effect,
2 programmable pitch modulated elements, bass, and a simple noise
generator rhythm sequencer.

The update includes:

-New improved reverb, which gives the whole instrument a richer and more airy sound!

-Several new PadScape presets, new Pitchmod sounds and patterns, and some new preset nkis.

-Same great flavor!

ToneBoosters TB VoicePitcher v3.1.3 Ked MAC OSX-Kleen ToneBoosters TB VoicePitcher v3.1.3 Ked MAC OSX-Kleen

Vocal Pitch Shifter

TB VoicePitcher is a simple to use, while very effective plugin to change the overall pitch of dialog and vocals, including singing voices. Because its algorithms are specifically designed for the human voice, the results with TB VoicePitcher will typically sound better, cleaner, and more natural than with other general-purpose pitch shifting algorithms*. Pitch shifting can be performed in real time, with a small latency that is compensated for by the DAW host (if supported). Furthermore, spectral (formant) corrections to improve the timbre of pitched vocals can be applied as well.

*Because TB VoicePitcher is specifically designed to process the human voice, it is less suitable for other content such as polyphonic music or rhythm tracks.
Blue Cat's Dynamics v4.0 MAC OSX-Kleen Blue Cat's Dynamics v4.0 MAC OSX-Kleen
Blue Cat's Dynamics is a full featured dynamics processor: it can be used as a compressor, limiter, gate, expander, waveshaper or all at once! The dynamics response of the plug-in can be tweaked with a unique two-thresholds system, and provides detailed visual feedback about its behavior.

The plug-in includes several filters to control the frequencies affected by the compression. Its continuous VCA/Opto and Peak/RMS controls let you smoothly and precisely choose the behavior of the envelope detection like you have never been able to.
The plug-in also provides advanced stereo features, with mid/side processing capability, multiple stereo linking options and the ability to choose the channels affected by the processor.
An additional brick wall limiter and clipper protects the output for complete control over the dynamics response.

Three different modes are available for external side chaining, using either the external side chain input, MIDI control or automation lanes.
The configurable visual feedback shows every detail of what is going on inside the plug-in. You can also record this information as automation curves, to monitor the modifications applied to the signal on top of the audio representation of your favorite host application.
All these features can be controlled from a fully configurable and "skinnable" user interface, or from any external controller.
