Puremagnetik Phazeform Vol.1 for Live 7 DYNAMiCS
The mothership of Casio synthesis, the CZ-1 was a remarkable piece of technology in its day, emulated by other leading synthesizer manufacturers. Casio's CZ line of Phase Distortion synthesizers are incredibly unique devices that used digital synthesis without a filter as opposed to traditional analog subtractive synthesis with a filter. The CZ line used phase distortion to somewhat simulate an analog filter, it had in total eight different waveforms: as well as the standard sawtooth, square, and pulse waveforms, it had a special double sine waveform, a half-sine waveform, and three waveforms with simulated filter resonance: resonant sawtooth, triangle, and trapezoidal waveforms.
The VL-Tone hybrid calculator/synthesizer, has a warm place in the hearts of many with its simple electronic sounds, factory rhythms and built-in speaker. Despite having few synthesis options the VL-Tone has a single note sequencer (fun!), an LFO and ADSR generator. Nevertheless the VL-Tone is a unique little creature that has found its way onto many famous recordings.

Sample Magic Ableton Magic Racks Processing Racks
Take your sound processing, track mix-downs and live set performances to the next level with our advanced mixing and creative FX racks. Processing Racks contains five powerful racks designed to give you complex sonic manipulation with the simplest of macro controls.
As always, each rack has been painstakingly sculpted to meet the demands of modern electronic music producers and performers. Vigorously tried and tested both in the studio and in the club, these five racks will help give your music a truly unique sonic stamp.
Built solely using Ableton’s native tools, each rack utilises complex processing chains to offer highly flexible, powerful and dance-tailored FX manipulation and mix processing that will become and indispensable part of your music production arsenal.
All five racks have eight simple macro knobs to control custom reverbs, delays, beat-repeats, gates, distortions, filters and multi-band compressors to offer unrivalled production know-how with the minimum of fuss.
For advanced users there’s endless possibilities as all racks are totally customisable - open them up, tweak parameters, change routings, swap in and out tools - so they fit your workflow seamlessly.
Compiled by Live expert and Magic Racks developer Hedflux, this latest edition is an essential tool for in-the-box producers seeking advanced processing tools.
The ultimate reverb rack.
A one-stop shop for creating depth, space and texture. Ghostly textures, kaleidoscopic ambience and submerged washes are an effortless breeze with the Spatializer. Macros for Hyper, Spacial and Pressure give controllable distance and width with spectral processing and clever delay chains. Then slot sounds into your mix with the wet/dry mix macro.
Slice, dice and re-tune and de-tune pitched percussion on the fly.
Random pitched techno bleeps and bloops, re-pitched grooves and randomised rhythms are all possible through a combination of beat-repeat processing, delay devices and pitch-specific controls. Ideal for adding dynamism and detail to tired percussion and top loops.
Custom distortion effects ideal for giving grit, punch and weight to drums, percussion and tops.
Filter your beats through a vintage, distorted or lo-fi distortion unit modelled on classic analogue processing. The Philtrator really comes to life in a sequencing setting - macros like the Crunch, Step and Freak filters can be tweaked on-the-fly to create dynamic transitions and classic low-pass filter rises. Take things to the next level with the pitch-specific Comb and Ambient filters for even more analogue-style noise, grit and authenticity.
Custom redux and filtering chains for weird pitched and re-sampled processing.
The Philtrator’s meaner, rougher younger brother is all about spectral transformation and resonant peak processing which create distorted and degraded harmonics. Simulate the dynamic behaviour of a metal tube and pipe works or incrementally lower the sample-rate and bit-depth with the Ruffness macro. Take things further with a time-based loop sweep and gate delay to create evolving rhythmic textures.
Time-based processing utilising tape modelling, beat-repeating and degrading delay chains.
Create perplexing layers and sonics like you've never heard. Drip-pitch your synths with Digital Dribble or create dynamic synthesised vocal FX with a combination of Space Warp and Loop Gap macros. Finally, Floppy Delay, Random Tubes and Epic Space utilise chorus, corpus and amp effects to take your sound design to another dimension.

Xfer Records Serum v1.06 b6 Update MAC
The dream synthesizer did not seem to exist: a wavetable synthesizer with a truly high-quality sound, visual and creative workflow-oriented interface to make creating and altering sounds fun instead of tedious, and the ability to "go deep” when desired - to create / import / edit / morph wavetables, and manipulate these on playback in real-time.
IMPORT YOUR OWN AUDIO / CREATE CUSTOM WAVETABLES WITH EASE
Serum has a Wavetable editor built right in- you can create your own wavetables in a variety of ways. Import audio directly from audio files - Serum has a variety of methods and options for analyzing audio for breaking it apart into individual waveforms. You can import single-cycle wavetables of course, as well as many at once (with in-built sorting options, or manual re-ordering). Morph between various wavetables using standard linear interpolation (crossfading) or via harmonic/spectral morphing. Draw directly on the waveform, with optional grid-size snapping and a variety of shape tools. Generate or modify waveforms using FFT (additive). Create or process waveforms using formula functions. Processing menu options allow you to do the other tasks you would want, such as apply fades, crossfades, normalize, export, and much more.
Playback of wavetables requires digital resampling to play different frequencies. Without considerable care and a whole lot of number crunching, this process will create audible artifacts. Artifacts mean that you are (perhaps unknowingly) crowding your mix with unwanted tones / frequencies. Many popular wavetable synthesizers are astonishingly bad at suppressing artifacts - even on a high-quality setting some create artifacts as high as -36 dB to -60 dB (level difference between fundamental on artifacts) which is well audible, and furthermore often dampening the highest wanted audible frequencies in the process, to try and suppress this unwanted sound. In Serum, the native-mode (default) playback of oscillators operates with an ultra high-precision resampling, yielding an astonishingly inaudible signal-to-noise (for instance, -150 dB on a sawtooth played at 1 Khz at 44100)! This requires a lot of calculations, so Serum’s oscillator playback has been aggressively optimized using SSE2 instructions to allow for this high-quality playback without taxing your CPU any more than the typical (decent quality) soft synth already does. Load up Serum and we think you’ll be able to notice both what you hear (solid high frequencies, extending flat all the way up to the limits of hearing) as well as what you don’t hear (no unwanted mud or aliasing gibberish- just good, clean sound).
MODULATION - WORK THE WAY YOU WANT TO
The modulation system allows for drag and drop connections between mod sources and destinations. Want an LFO controlling a filter cutoff? Simply drag the LFO title to the cutoff knob. This LFO->Filter connection will now appear in the Mod Matrix as well. In other words, you have two views/approaches for creating and modifying your modulations: sometimes a list is nice, other times you just want the job done fast and easy.
REALTIME WAVETABLE MANIPULATION
In addition to moving through the set of wavetables (up to 256 make up a single oscillator), you can manipulate the waveform itself in a separate realtime process referred to as Warp. This allows for FM/AM/RM/Oscillator Sync and many other ways to modify the waveform, including "Remap” modes - a graph editor for drawing your own custom table manipulations.
Serum includes all of the filter types found in LFOTool in addition to some brand-new ones. Flangers, Phasers, and Comb filters all of which can key-track to the musical note you play. Dual filter types let you control or morph between filter types. Get creative with atypical processes for filters such as downsampling, or the unique filter types found nowhere before, such as the dirty-sounding French LPF.
BUILT-IN SUITE OF EFFECTS
An effects rack with 10 effects modules lets you get your sound all the way to the finish line inside Serum. Effects can be re-ordered to any configuration you want. Virtually all effect parameters are also available as modulation destinations. This is especially useful on monophonic synth sounds. For example, apply an LFO to control reverb size or dry/wet, or velocity to control distortion amount. Many of these effects and modes were built just for Serum, so there are many unique effects to choose from, such as Hyper, which simulates (additional) unison amounts, or a dual-waveshaper which allows for a distortion you can morph between two separate wave shapes.
Serum will let you stack a single oscillator to use up to 16 voices. Each of the wavetable oscillators have a number of unison advanced parameters. Stack settings allow for note (e.g. octave) layering to get a fuller sound for a single note-press. Set the unison voices to all have their unique waveform at once with the Unison WT Pos setting, or have them all skewed in a different way with the unison Warp control. A variety of unison tuning modes per-oscillator let you get the stack sound blooming or swarming like you want.
