i have just finished new versions (7.0 DT & FS, 1.40 SS) of all of my plugins for mac/audio unit and mac/vst. rtas and windows will follow (though those weren’t as buggy!).
drop me a line if anything is still wrong.
this release dedicated to my beloved wisconsin teachers and schools, and the fine education i received there!

I am now working on new versions of all of the plugins. Right now squashing all known bugs, and getting things up to date with the current Live, Logic and PT (8,9,9).
Also making the first steps to converting all plugins to 64-bit. These will be offered in parallel – 32 bit plugs will remain available.

We have just released the first complete version of the SoundHack externals for PD & Max. These externals replicate most of the SoundHack plugins and are offered free of charge. Included in this collection are externals for amplitude shaping and distortion (+compand~, +chebyshev~ & +decimate~), single-head, multi-head, pitchshifting and granular delays (+delay~, +pitchdelay~, +bubbler~), and the spectral shapers, a set of spectral filters and dynamics processors (+binaural~, +morphfilter~, +spectralcompand~ & +spectralgate~). This package is available here.
As this is the first release, we expect bugs – don’t hesitate to write us at support at soundhack.com.
These externals were programmed by William Brent, Tom Erbe, Daniel Arias, Bryan Oczkowski and Trevor LeVieux. Big thanks to the UC San Diego Department of Music and the Center for Research in Computing and the Arts for their support.
Minor update – fixes the number of bands (eventually this will be variable). Lots of updates to the AudioUnit parameter handling – this should work much better in SoundTrack Pro and Logic.
SoundHack Spectral Shapers version 1.29 has just been released for Mac and Windows. This version fixes many small bugs, and is now compatible with current versions of Logic Pro and ProTools. It can be downloaded here.
Windows users may want to install .NET 3.5 before installing the plugins, as they are dependent on these libraries.
+delay, +bubbler and +pitchdelay are out!
This is a group of three plugins that I developed as class demonstrations while teaching computer music and studio technique at UC San Diego. All of these are derived from the same basic delay algorithm: a hermite interpolated delay line with variable modulation, and a feedback loop with dc blocking and saturation. Pitch shifting is achieved with a dual head crossfading delay (ala Eltro Tempophon/Dennis Gabor/Pierre Schaeffer phonogene) and is decidedly low-ﬁ. The saturating feedback also allows them to be great drone and noise generators.
Version 6.06 has been released. It fixes some initialization problems with +pitchdelay in VST and RTAS formats. Go to the freeware page to download.
I just created SoundHack groups on facebook. I’ll be posting announcements and updates to those spaces (along with this blog). Links are:
SoundHack 0.896 is debugged and released. It is a Universal Binary application, so supports both Intel and PPC and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or better. It also supports CoreAudio playback and recording.
Bugs fixed since 0.895: Mutation crashes, playback problems, peak detection in floating point files.
Available now in the freeware section.
