Homegrown Sounds Black Magic Loop Generator
Homegrown Sounds has announced Black Magic Loop Generator, a loop workstation VST instrument plug-in for Windows with "the ability to generate diverse loops with a single mouse click".
According to the company, a loop can instantly be recorded out to WAV, automatically named by BPM and timestamp. The idea is said to have developed to make sample based loops an easy and fun process, as loop creation is generally a time consuming process.
Black Magic can also be used as a standard MIDI drum machine and also has the ability to jam with the individual sequences in real time. It has 10 Samplers each with its own sequencer and many adjustable parameters. It uses standard WAV files and ships with a library of samples, but users can add their own. There is also an FX section which includes a Compressor/Limiter, Delay, SoundScaper, Flanger/Filter and Drive as well as many Modulation options including randomizers, a Modulation sequencer and an LFO.
Each sampler has its own settings for 14 parameters such as Cutoff, Resonance, Volume, Pan, Pitch, Release, etc., but there are also a set of Master controls for these settings which are additive/subtractive. There is also an overview Mixer screen which allows seeing all levels for 12 of the Sampler parameters and allows to randomize just the pitches or cutoff values for instance.
Pricing & Availability
Priced at £130, Black Magic is set for release on 24th April. Pre-ordering is available now at half price (£65) - customers will get instant access to the beta version to start playing immediately, according to HS.
