Beat 08|20 is now available for €4,99 at Falkemedia’s online shop and Zinio. The magazine includes a free copy of the Sigmund delay by D16 Group, and we’re giving away five free copies of Beat to five lucky BPB readers! Scroll all the way down the article for more info on how to win a free copy of the mag.
The latest issue of Beat magazine comes with a sublime gift – a copy of the Sigmund delay plug-in by D16 Group! That’s on top of the 8.5GB of software, loops, and samples that you can download after purchasing the issue. I think that this is €4,99 well spent! This amount of cash is how much a single Beat magazine issue costs and you get a bunch of music production tools for free.
Also, users who claim their free copy of D16 Sigmund will receive a 50% OFF discount on any single plug-in purchase at D16 Group Audio Software’s online shop. Product bundles are not included in the offer.
Sigmund is a highly advanced delay plug-in styled in D16 Group’s usual hardware-inspired design approach. It features four independent delay units, two multifunctional modulators, nine pre-defined signal routes to choose from, a mixer, and a limiter.
Each delay can pass through a multimode filter and an overdrive section. Mix options include panning, stereo, and mid/side processing. That’s a lot of virtual knobs and faders to massage in search of expansive delay sounds. Not just delay, anyway. The plug-in can double as a chorus, phaser, auto-panner, and anything else that’s time, modulation, and stereo-based.
If you like echo effects with charm and spacey delay experiments, Sigmund is a joy to work with! Our full version by D16 Group Audio Software is much more than a delay effect: The plug-in is a real secret weapon for delay and modulation effects of any kind. But the remarkably flexible creative tool is also equipped for exciting filter and distortion effects and complex modulations.
Numbering 100 pages of content, this issue’s highlight is a comprehensive review of the Dave Smith Pro 3 mono synthesizer. Also, the latest edition of Beat comes with a wealth of reports, musician interviews, tutorials, workshops, and other material for music producers and sound designers.
Here’s a closer look at the sample material that is included with the magazine:
As usual, the Beat magazine is accompanied by a download with a multifaceted range of exciting plug-ins, sounds, and samples. The Engine Artists Library from Best Service provides almost unlimited sonic inspiration for your productions. Need some fresh new sounds for your sample folder? In this case, you will surely enjoy the MPC Expansion Electro Encounter, the sound packages by Random Sounds, Myloops and About Noise as well as the Retro Loops of Drums & Vibes. Finally, the sample package VCO Drums 1 impresses with unique drum sounds created with exquisite analog synthesizers.
Check out the “In The Studio” interview with Francesca Lombardo and the in-depth guide on improving your music production workflow. The magazine also features an Arturia KeyStep Pro review and a closer look at the Tascam Model 12 analog mixer.
Since last month, the online edition of Beat is available in both English and German. The price is €5,24 for a single issue and €52,49 for a one-month subscription (these are the prices with included tax).
The great news here is that the online version includes all the DVD contents and the full download package that comes with the magazine’s print edition. You can choose what software you want to download and then use Beat magazine’s Serial-Center platform to register your licenses.
