Surreal Machines and Ableton Release New Dub Machines

    Surreal Machines and Ableton have released some brand new analog-modeled delays for Max for Live: Magnetic and Diffuse Dub Machines…




    Press Release 

    From new company Surreal Machines – co-founded by Ableton’s Matt Jackson and collaborator Pete Dowling – Dub Machines features two premium delay effects for Max for Live – Magnetic and Diffuse.


    Modeled on classic tape-echo machines, Magnetic features multiple physical tape models and three virtual tape heads to choose from. Using convolution reverb, impulse responses from a variety of classic reverbs and machine noises are also available. Whether you want shimmering, Pink Floyd-style echos, or a building, wobbly feedback tail reminiscent of Lee “Scratch” Perry, Magnetic is a capable beast.




    Straddling a line between delay and reverb, Diffuse features a sophisticated feedback network for small tight spaces or long, lush, swells. with up to 150% feedback and a special “pump” effect, Diffuse is a beautiful tool for sound sculpture.
