CamelPhat v3.5, CamelSpace v1.5, CamelCrusher
EDINBURGH, UK: Camel Audio is proud to announce updates to its award-winning CamelPhat and CamelSpace multi-effects plug-ins, both benefitting from a myriad of new features, bug fixes, and improvements to their respective creative ‘colouring’ and rhythmic remit...
CAMELPHAT (£59 GBP/€69 EUR/$85 USD) is a powerful ‘phattening’ multi-effects (Mac OS X 10.5 or later- and Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7-compatible) plug-in especially engineered to work wonders on guitar, bass, and drums, adding warmth, punch, and presence whenever required; its four characteristically different distortion effects can be used separately or blended together to create an endless variety of tones, while the unique ‘Magic EQ’ enhances low-end frequencies like nothing else — the perfect drum sweetener! Amalgamating an easy-to-use analogue-modelled compressor, three resonant filters, two LFOs, and an envelope follower equals one seriously ‘phat’ package! A stunning graphical user interface puts all these controls at the user’s fingertips, while the X/Y pad allows easy real-time manipulation of the most important parameters. CamelPhat v3.5 comes complete with 300 attention-grabbing presets — including many new ones — all better organised by category, yet new sounds and inspiration are just a click away, thanks to the intelligent ‘RANDOMIZE’ button. Notable new features in CamelPhat v3.5 include 64-bit support for VST and AU on Mac and Windows; RTAS support for Mac and Windows; new filter modes from Alchemy; MIDI program change; inverse LFO shapes for Sine, Square, and Triangle; Keyfile copy protection built in to the download; and LFO depth and speed targets for the X/Y pad.
CAMELSPACE (£59 GBP/€69 EUR/$85 USD) can take any sound thrown at it — be it a pad, synth line, or drum loops, and generate a dizzying array of dynamically-evolving, gated rhythmic textures; this (Mac OS X 10.5 or later- and Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7-compatible) rhythmical multi-effects plug-in for synths, guitars, and drums features an enormously powerful 128-step ‘Trance Gate’ sequencer, which controls panning, filter cutoff, and volume, while independent LFOs provide yet more mind-boggling modulation options. A tempo-synced stereo delay and powerful auto-panner ensure sounds are always on the move, while an enhancer (with ‘XCITA’ and soft saturation), a flanger, and a high-quality reverb all add ‘sparkle’. Another stunning graphical user interface puts all these controls at users’ fingertips, while the X/Y pad allows easy real-time manipulation of the most important parameters. With the intelligent ‘Randomize’ button, new sounds are just a click away. CamelSpace v1.5 boasts better preset organisation by category with 100-plus new sounds, bringing the grand total to 470 attention-grabbing presets. Other features new to CamelSpace v1.5 include 64-bit support for VST and AU on Mac and Windows; RTAS support for Mac and Windows; new filter modes from Alchemy; MIDI program change; inverse LFO shapes for Sine, Square, and Triangle; Keyfile copy protection built in to the download; improved pattern and step tie editing; randomisation option for the step sequencer; Randomize button affects all active patterns; and the default delay filter cutoff is now 100% open.
CAMELCRUSHER is a free ‘colouring’ multi-effects (Mac OS X 10.5 or later, VST/AU/RTAS 32- or 64-bit host- and Windows XP/Vista/Windows 7, VST/RTAS 32- or 64-bit host-compatible) plug-in; it offers two characteristically different distortion sounds, which can be blended together to create a wide variety of tones and textures — great for guitars, drums, and much more besides! There’s also a warm, smooth analogue-style lowpass filter with buckets of resonance — assign a MIDI controller and start tweaking! Last, but not least, an easy-to-use compressor can ‘phatten’ up sounds as quick as takes to turn up its associated ‘AMOUNT’ knob!
All three plug-ins can be securely ordered individually and downloaded directly from Camel Audio’s online Shop (www.camelaudio.com/shop.php). CamelPhat v3.5 andCamelSpace v1.5 are available jointly as the PhatSpace bundle (for £99 GBP/€119 EUR/$149 USD).
