Announcing Noxious 1.5

Noxious15We’re almost ready for the new release of Noxious, version 1.5. This will be a really major release with lots of improvements.

  • True stereo width
  • Waveform variations
  • Standard serial or parallel filter mode with filter mix
  • Vowel filter
  • Random modulation sources reset at each note
  • Major performance enhancements

Of course, all this comes with some new presets to demonstrate the new features.

Here is an audio peek of what it sounds like, especially the stereo width and some new presets. Done without special effects apart from the reverb and echo.

The good part is that performance improvements are so good that this song has been built on a humble Mac Mini with 16 instances of Noxious at no more than 50% of the CPU load.

Molecule tracks by SH9 feature the Volt CB-1

Polybonk.com, an online music store specialising in independent music, has published three acid tracks by artist SH9 featuring the Volt CB-1. It might not be obvious to the ears but up to fifteen CB-1’s were used to create the rhythmic patterns and without the help of any automation, just progressive track mutes. As artist SH9 says : “no automation, all modulation”.

All three tracks of the Molecule release are available on Polybonk.com‘s online store.
