Montreal, QC, CANADA (October 14th 2009) — Plogue officially released its new chipsounds soft-synthesizer.
This new product allow any musician to faithfully reproduce the sound and style of vintage video game music and sound effects in a convenient plugin format, usable inside any sequencer or DAW, or as a standalone virtual instrument.chipsounds simulates the following sound chips at a never before reached level of authenticity in a software synthesizer:
2A03, AY-3-8910, DMG-CPU, P8244, POKEY, SID, SN76489, TIA, UVI and the VIC-I.
Powered by Plogue/Garritan’s ARIA virtual instrument engine, chipsounds reproduces the idiosyncrasies of the most sought-after classic sound chips, including their most well-known variations, as sonically accurate as possible without adding any non-authentic aliasing or DSP artifacts. Whether musicians are already versed into chiptune/chip music or just interested in those sounds, this is one unique instrument for them.
Research and analysis for this project has been made in house on Plogue’s large collection of cartridges, modified consoles and classic computers and also on the chips themselves using custom made circuit boards and low level 8 bit software code.
“The most authentic emulation of C64, Nes, Vic20, Gameboy, and Atari 2600 sound chips I’ve ever heard!” -8 Bit Weapon
“Quite simply put, it beats the s*** out of any other single chip emulation VST currently available.
chipsounds is a must-have for anyone who’s seriously interested in chip sounds but don’t have access to the real hardware.” – nitro2k01 (http://gameboygenius.8bitcollective.com)
Plogue chipsounds will be offered at an introductory price of 75$ until November 1.
