The Concept

When sampling vinyl records on vintage hardware samplers you often get something more than the musical content itself. This "sonic texture" may be a subtle feel, or it may be something that actually plays a defining role to the sample.

Sonitex is built on the idea that "texture" and "grit" is not a single effect such as noise or bit-reduction. Rather, it is the cumulative result of every process a piece of music goes through as well as the interaction of these.

So instead of focusing on just a single effect, Sonitex focuses on the complete life span of a piece of music before it ends up as a sample in a contemporary track.

Sonitex includes processing to mimic the mixing stage, overall distortion, vinyl pressing & playback, vinyl noise, other types of noises, frequency fidelity and finally the resolution & characteristics in digital sampling.

Sonitex, mixed & mastered, pressed to vinyl, played on vinyl, sampled to 8/12/16 bit

Specification

  • Dynamic processing to add initial punch and density.
  • Mid/Side stereo adjustments.
  • Distortion with pre-emphasis circuit and dry/wet control.
  • 5 Distortion types (Saturation, Distortion, Amplifier, Digital 1 + 2).
  • Flexible distortion pre-filter.
  • Vinyl pitch instability with multiple warp shapes, and speed control (syncable).
  • Sibilance processing to emulate high frequency distortion on vinyl playback.
  • Overall bandwidth control with separate high & low frequency roll-off and "bump" control.
  • Additional processing to mimic vinyl groove wear and the "phone"-sound on early systems.
  • Flexible control over density, level and stereo spread on both vinyl "pops" and "clicks".
  • Optional program dependant density for pops and clicks.
  • 25 noise types ranging from vinyl noise and tape hiss to mechanical noises.
  • Option to load custom wav files with noise or other sounds. (syncable).
  • Adjustable gate (with syncable delay) on noise channel allows many ways to integrate noise.
  • Flexible sampling section allows emulation of many types of sampler configurations.
  • Bit-depth reduction and 3 types of samplerate reductions (with adjustable antialiasing filter).
  • Dynamic lowpass filter section.
  • Adjustable built-in compressor on output.
  • Modulation system allowing mixed LFO & Envelope Follower modulation for selected parameters.
  • Midi Learn on selected parameters.
  • 3 internal routing configurations.
  • Intelligent design to reduce CPU on disabled sections.
  • "Subsets" offers 6 fixed sub-presets on each page to allow fast workflow when experimenting.
  • Broad selection of categorized presets.
