Windmaschine by Tonsturm has been reduced in price for a limited time. It’s now available for only $119.00 (usually $179.00).
With Windmaschine Tonsturm are proud to present a playable VSTI that is a faithful reproduction of the Windhowler Mole Effect but also takes it to a whole new level.
The Windhowler is an electrical instrument developed in the 1960s which can produce unique wind sound effects with a very special sound signature. Only a few devices exist and the one the entire planet and luckily we had access to a unit in mint condition. Tonsturm captured every single detail in order to preserve its sound signature and character. In combination with Tonsturm’s visionary software engine these captured recordings are transformed into a virtual instrument that allows you to go to sonic territories way beyond what the original device is capable of.
As on the original hardware everything starts with the resonators. You can load one of the 19 available resonator sets into each of the four source channels. The whole sound engine comes to live when performed by our powerful wind modulation system.
Manually blend between the individual colors of wind or let the wind modulation system mix it for you explore the possibilities. It’s all at your fingertips.
The FX section of Windmaschine allows you to tune its sound character to the mood you need or to change it drastically.Tailored Effects invite you to explore different sides of wind and to be part of it.
Finally everything is set into stage with Tonsturm’s beautiful sounding convolution reverb engine. It comes with custom recorded true stereo impulse responses providing a breath taking sound quality. Besides nature, exterior and indoor impulse responses we included IR recordings from musical instruments like gongs, sound bowls or cymbals enabling Windmaschine to create lively textures, drones and atmospheres.
Tomsturm invented a way to meticulously capture every possible setting of the original Windhowler hardware. We attached a script controlled stepper motor to the wind speed dial. Each resonator sample set finally consists of 120 short loops that are cross blended in real time when performing Windmaschine.
Windmaschine is available to PC and Mac users (VST2, AU and AAX and requires an iLok account).
