System Heavy is an electronic act from the UK, and they’ve recently shared with us their last tune Humming Bird, that you can freely download/listen. In this track they used a lot of Ohmicide:Melohman distortion and several instances of the OhmBoyz delay. Enjoyed their sound? There is more at their myspace profile…

This time our german ohmfriend Colin Stark (you’ll probably remember him from our first video cohmpetition, one year ago) waited almost until the last minute to send us his most recent production. Now he shows how he personally uses his OhmBoyz, Ohmicide:Melohman and OhMyGod!. (Colin, you have indeed experienced some technical problem when rendering your video, as video speed is weird and there’s no sound at all. The HD version is not working neither. Please render/upload again and send us a new link as soon as possible!!!)
Did you know that come from Guatemala the biggest ring modulation fans in the world? Miguel Zea aka Venomeza is indeed one of them. “Reeeaally basic stuff made with some Ohmforce plugins for the Cohmpetition contest. This tutorial proves that Ohmforce plugins can go as deep as you’re ready to. Plugins used: Quad Frohmage, Predatohm, OhmBoyz & Cohmpost all in FLS” says the video description, and what we were able to see is that with some Ohm Force plugins and some evil feelings inside your head it’s possible to transform cheesy sounds into nice (and useful!) pieces of sound. Ok, not that useful if we talk about the Cohmpost part at the end of the video, but it’s never too much listening to all that horny cats…
Third submission by Michael Hetrick is once again about our distortion beast Ohmicide:Melohman, this time showing a creative way to use the plug-in: using each band’s noise gate parameters to apply different kinds of distortion to each portion of the frequency spectrum, what gives – in Michael’s studio an acoustic drum loop – new personalities to the audio and spicy rhythmic enhancements to what used to be a ‘not that uncommon loop’. In addition he plugs in an OhmBoyz delay and – wow – we could make an entire track only playing along with parameters and cleverly exploring the variations of this delayed-gated-distortion setup.
Talking about the OhmBoyz, we invite you to take a look at Franck de Villeneuve’s myspace profile and listen to some of the tracks of our ohmfriend. It’s been a long time he’s an OhmBoyz addict and while listening his nice minimal electro (with loads of techno touches) is easy to recognize the Boyz in action tapping here and there..!
Ohmfriends from the “I Am Cereals” have just sent us a nice track they made using our OhmBoyz delay when mixing. The band is actually a “music playground” project for members of other bands/artists such as Bauchklang, Richter and Capella Incongnita among others. Ben, their master of cerimonies, explains: “We’ve used the OhmBoyz delay extensively in the chorus, adding an electronic edge to the human voices. Even though Cubase 4 ships with a mod-delay, there’s nothing as great as the OhmBoyz!”. We do agree, and invite you all to enjoy the groovy song:
Third submission is about one of our bestsellers plug-ins – OhmBoyz – the delay line able to create new kinds of life forms with its two taps, LFO’s, cross feedbacking and warm filtering.
