[15 August 2014] Wahoo update 1.2.01

A new versions of firmware have been released today for the Wahoo.

Version 1.2.01 of the Wahoo includes some new features, including a new "demo mode". See this video for more details.

Download now from the software pages.


[23 June 2014] Voluum and Wahoo updates

New versions of firmware have been released today for the Wahoo and Voluum effects pedals. The Desktop Editors for both products have also been updated.

Version 1.2.00 of the Wahoo includes some bug fixes and improvements, and some significant new features including pedal control in envelope mode.

Version 1.1.00 of the Voluum includes a new feature suggested by one of the first Voluum customers. This is "preset bypass" mode which allows you to select a preset to be active when the effect is off. This lets you use the Voluum as a volume pedal, for example, when off, then any other effect as normal when it's on. It's a great idea and it can be very useful.

Download now from the software pages.


[23 April 2014] Voluum Desktop Editor now available

The Desktop Editor Software for the Sonuus Voluum pedal is now available.

More information can be found on the Voluum editor page.

We'll also have some great deals on at the show, so whether you want a great bargain, or just want to say hello to us, please stop by Stand E8.


[27 December 2013] First Voluum Video

We have just released our first video on our new Voluum stomp box (which will be introduced officially at The NAMM Show 2014 in Los Angeles).

Combining a transparent noise gate, smooth-sounding pedal-controlled compressor, dual-LFO tremolo, volume effects and a limiter, the Voluum is unlike any "volume" pedal you've ever seen before.

More information can be found on the FLAME app product page.


[15 August 2013] Firmware Updater 1.1.00

A new update has been released for the Sonuus Firmware Updater. It is now available from the software pages.

There were some reports of instabilities (crashes) on some computers/OSs. There were rare, but we've reworked the firmware updater to improve stability and fix all known problems.

Elia De Molli

James Hamer


[3 July 2013] i2M musicport firmware update 1.3.02

The i2M musicport firmware has been updated to fix a bug and further improve performance:

  • Possible fix for MIDI lock-up that has been observed occasionally on OSX.

  • Improved dynamic range for MIDI note detection: notes can now sustain for even longer and there is better performance for lower level signals.

  • The noise floor for USB audio has been improved.

The firmware can be downloaded from our software pages.


[11 March 2013] Sonuus Joins NuMuBu

NuMuBu is the music industry's social and business network. Think of it as Facebook dedicated to music and musicians.

www.NuMuBu.com/sonuus


[4 February 2013] Wahoo firmware update 1.1.02.

The Wahoo firmware has been updated to fix two bugs:

  • Pedal MIDI-control modes were not saved in presets. So if you use these, they revert to pedal control when the preset is recalled.

  • Disabled "USB Suspend" because this can cause problems with partially disconnected USB cables: the Wahoo can appear to "die" or the pedal can become non-functional.

The Wahoo Desktop Editor (OSX version) has also been updated to fix a bug where it wasn't possible to edit the name of the preset when saving this from the editor. The editor and the firmware can be downloaded from our software pages.


[17 January 2013] Sonuus G2M iOS app released

It is with great excitement that we announce that our market-leading Guitar-to-MIDI technology is now available as an App for iPhone®, iPad® and iPod touch®.

The Sonuus G2M has acclaimed pitch detection and MIDI tracking and we've now put this technology into a very elegant App. The App features include:

  •     low CPU usage, so you can run it in the background beside a synth.

  •     the low latency that you would expect from Sonuus hardware products, now as an App.

  •     pitch-bend tracking with better accuracy than most guitar tuners, yes, really!

  •     velocity tracking: preserve the nuances of what you play.

  •     supports Core MIDI: route to other Apps, or externally via via supported 3rd party interfaces.

  •     wireless MIDI via Wi-Fi.

  •     ultra-responsive, very accurate chromatic tuner, with innovative display.

  •     sleek and modern UI.

The accuracy, low-latency, low CPU-usage and the inclusion of a Sonuus Chromatic Tuner make this MIDI conversion App an exciting new tool for guitarists. The retail price of the G2M App is $9.99 (£6.99) (one tenth the price of the hardware G2M) but is currently available at a special launch price of $1.99 (£1.49) until the end of January 2013.

More information can be found on the G2M app product page.


[16 January 2013] More amazing Wahoo reviews

The Wahoo continues to review amazing reviews. Three more reviews have been done recently:

Details on all the Wahoo reviews can be found here.


[20 November 2012] Wahoo firmware update 1.1.0.

The Wahoo firmware has been updated to add some nice new features.

  • Smoother LFOs at high speeds.

  • New "punch" feature in envelope mode.

  • New "retrigger" mode for LFOs (they can restart when a new note is played) with configurable delays to control the fade-in of the LFO.

  • New ways to enable the effect using the footpedal, which also allows a new way to select presets using the footswitch.

The Wahoo Desktop Editor has also been updated to support these new features. The editor and the firmware can be downloaded from our software pages.

Note the Wahoo Desktop Editor has been updated to version 1.1.1 to fix a bug in version 1.1.0: it could crash when connected to a Wahoo using older firmware.


[14 November 2012] Sonuus now selling i-ROCK

Sonuus are now selling i-ROCK guitar and microphone interfaces for the iPhone and iPad direct in the UK. We can also ship to other European countries.

i-ROCK is a mobile guitar interface that connects your guitar to your iPhone®, iPad® or iPod touch®. It connects to the mic input of your iOS device and provides a high-impedance interface to connect electric guitars and basses. It also features a headphone output so you can still connect your headphones.

Featuring a low-noise FET pre-amp and an exclusive ground-loop prevention design, the i-ROCK gives you great guitar tone on the move.

The i-ROCK Vocal is also available, which is optimised for dynamic microphones allowing you to record vocals with much better clarity than is possible with the built-in microphone of the iOS device.


[1 November 2012] Wahoo reviewed at SonicState.com (Amped)

This review features an in-depth video showing the Wahoo from a bass-players perspective. Best listened to with good headphones so you can hear all that lovely low end.

" An excellent sounding and incredibly well designed pedal that offers a unparalleled amount of adjust-ability that is more in line with analogue synthesisers than traditional guitarists stomp boxes.   Don't let that put you off though as it is very easy to use and the clear layout means that even when the pedal is on the floor, you can see exactly what is going on.  The software editor is the icing on the cake in this department as it is extremely well thought out and allows for an excellent editing experience.  A highly recommended unit that should give the user many years of wah and filter action of the highest calibre!  "

SonicState.com


[20 October 2012] Wahoo reviewed in Guitar Interactive Magazine

Guitar Interactive Magazine have just reviewed the Wahoo. At the end of the review there is an in-depth 18 minute video showing you just what the Wahoo can do!

"If you can imagine a filter sound it can almost certainly be achieved with the Wahoo!"

"The really great thing about the Wahoo is how inspirational the sounds can be - I can fully imagine using some of these sounds to write entire riffs or songs and after all, what else do we use effects pedals for if not to inspire us to be more creative? In this respect the Wahoo is highly successful and I very much recommend that you check one out!"

[10 September 2012]Alberto Rigoni's Three Wise Monkeys

Sonuus endorsee Alberto Rigoni has unveiled his new album: "Three Wise Monkeys".

Half instrumental and half with vocals, Rigoni's new album is thematically centered around the Japanese folk legend of the three wise monkeys (together they embody the proverbial principle to "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil") and further refines the stylistic contrasts and progressive spirit characterizing 2011’s “Rebirth” (Nightmare Records).

"Three Wise Monkeys" also boasts contributions from special guests such as keyboard player Kevin Moore (ex Dream Theater, OSI, Chroma Key), singer Göran Edman (ex Yngwie Malmsteen, John Norum, Brazen Abbot), drummer Mark Cross (Outloud, ex Helloween, Firewind), Mistheria, Jonas Erixon, Simone Mularoni, Federico Solazzo, Tommy Ermolli and many others.

"Three Wise Monkeys" will be released on October 1, 2012 by Any and All Records with worldwide distribution (Nightmare Records, Disk Union, PowerProg, MediaStar etc.)


[6 September 2012] i2M musicport Desktop Editor update (1.3.03)

A small bug crept into the last i2M musicport Desktop Editor: you couldn't type in the "note extend" value. This has now been fixed in 1.3.03.

The update can be downloaded from our software pages.


[28 August 2012] i2M musicport software OSX update (1.3.02)

Following the recent i2M musicport Desktop Editor update (version 1.3.01), a user reported a crash in OSX. We have made a fix for this, and released an update for OSX (version 1.3.02). There is no problem in the Windows version, so this remains at version 1.3.01.

The update can be downloaded from our software pages.


[16 August 2012] Wahoo pre-order process now open


Since we announced the Wahoo in January 2012, we have had lots of enquiries about when it would be possible to buy this great new pedal. In the next few weeks we will have a small number of units available for the first pre-order customers. In a month or so after that, we should have a much larger quantity to fulfill all outstanding pre-orders.

In the UK, the "street" price in most retailers is expected to be around £250 inc VAT. To reward the patience of our loyal customers we have decided to offer a special pre-order price of £200 inc VAT (+ shipping) to pre-order customers.

To pre-order, complete the pre-order form.


[24 July 2012] i2M musicport software update (1.3.01)

We are pleased to announce that a new firmware update (version 1.3.01) is available for the i2M musicport. It includes new features requested by i2M musicport users, and a minor bug fix.
  • Fix a bug when “reset to factory settings” is used: the i2M would need to be restarted before new settings would be stored correctly.

  • Add zone sustain feature (SUS): zones can be configured to respond to a sustain pedal. The sustain pedal can be configured (globally) to be any MIDI controller.

  • Add support for Desktop Editor to indicate when MIDI is sent or received by the i2M musicport.

    The i2M musicport Desktop Editor has also been updated to version 1.3.01:

    • Now supports multiple i2M musicports connected to your computer (you can now select which of the connected devices should be active).

    • New indicators to show when the i2M is sending or receiving MIDI (useful for debugging MIDI routing to your software), and to show when the input is clipping (in case you can't see the light on the i2M itself).

    • Supports the new features in firmware version 1.3.01.

We have also taked the i2M musicport ASIO driver our of beta and made the last, well-tested, beta version the offical release (Version 1.0.0).

All of the above can be downloaded from our software pages.


[28 May 2012] Sonuus selling Buznut string dampeners

Sonuus are now selling Buznut string dampeners direct in the UK. We can also ship to other European countries.

Buznuts prevent open strings from being played and this can greatly improve MIDI tracking with Sonuus MIDI converter products where you playing technique doesn't naturally let you do this. It's also great for regular guitar solos to clean up unwanted notes.

You can get these direct from our eBay Store for £8.95 + P&P.

Check out these videos for more information on what the Buznut does.


[28 May 2012] Sonuus endorses Or Lubianiker

Sonuus are pround to announce the endorsement of Or Lubianiker, an amazing bass player from Israel who is known for his "outside the box" way of thinking and for making sure none of his works lacks entertainment value.

Or did a cool video about the i2M musicport.


[28 May 2012] Sonuus endorses Michael Bernier

Sonuus are pround to announce the endorsement of Michael Bernier, a NY Multi-instrumentalist who began playing drums at the tender age of 14 in his hometown of Huntington, Long Island, before eventually adding in guitar, Chapman Stick, bass, cello and tablas. Most recently, Michael toured Europe, South America, Japan and the United States with STICK MEN, a project with King Crimson alums Tony Levin and Pat Mastelotto.

Here's what Michael says about the i2M musicport:

"The Sonuus i2M musicport has changed the way I approach performance and writing entirely. Now I can play any midi vst instrument live with my Chapman Stick without having to move over to a midi keyboard or midi trigger pad. I cannot recommend this product enough. If you are a solo performer looking for more texture and versatility or a bandmember who is looking to express yourself with new sounds that aren't inherent with your bass/guitar/stick...the i2M offers this and more. An absolute "must have" addition to my arsenal"


[25 May 2012] i2M musicport firmware/editor update (1.3.00)

We are pleased to announce that a new firmware update (version 1.3.00) is available for the i2M musicport. It includes two new features requested by i2M musicport users, and a few bug fixes.

  • Fix a bug when MIDI zone "note extend" was enabled. This could cause zero-duration notes to be sent by mistake.

  • Fixed a potential crash (unit would restart itself). This would only occur in rare situations, if at all.

  • Note-extend behaviour changed to work better with synths in mono-legato mode. Now, when the note-extend is active the new note is sent before the old note is turned off. This allows the receiving synth (when configured to mono-legato mode) to play the new note without a new note-on attack.

  • Note-detection accuracy in chromatic mode has been improved.

  • It is now possible to route pitch-bend data to another, globally-defined, MIDI controller. Only one MIDI controller can be configured, but routing can be enabled separately on each MIDI zone to different MIDI channels.

    The i2M musicport Desktop Editor has also been updated to version 1.3.00:

    • Fix a bug in the Desktop Editor which prevented you from selecting a single note range in the zone gate.

    • Added new musical scale to the Desktop Editor "Melodic Minor Full" which includes the notes of both the ascending and descending Melodic Minor scales.

    • Supports the new features in firmware version 1.3.00.

All of the above can be downloaded from our software pages.

He is known as a tasteful musician who loves groove and feel and playing what is right for the song. His recent credits include Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Katie Melua, Les Miserables (West End) and Luke White.

Here's what Dan says about the i2M musicport:

"I use the i2M mainly to trigger synth bass sounds whilst playing bass lines. I love playing keyboard synth bass but I find that the i2M allows me to really express myself on my favourite bass whilst getting some awesome tones (usually Moog at the moment!). The tracking is great and it is a great tool for live and studio use. I mainly use it in the studio for some of the online sessions I do"


[19-22 January 2012] See our new product at The NAMM Show Booth 5990 Hall B

We will be introducing the latest Sonuus product, the Wahoo, (and demoing existing products) at The NAMM Show in Anaheim, CA, USA, with our US distributor Peterson Electro-Musical Products, Inc.

The Wahoo is very exciting for us, and we think it will be exciting to many musicians. We started releaing snippets about the Wahoo on  our facebook page but have now revealed all. It's a pure analogue, dual-filter stomp box for guitar and bass -- a filter pedal, but like no other!

Visit Booth 5990 Hall B to try the Wahoo first-hand.

"We're in the middle of writing the new Marillion album at the moment and are about to go off on a short tour around Europe. Being able to write and record midi parts while we're on tour using only the musicport, a guitar and my laptop is going to be invaluable. A brilliant piece of technology."

"This amusing little device is just perfect for arranging, recording and even writing midi partitures directly fron your instrument on your computer, whether you are settled in your studio, on the fly or sitting in the back of a tour bus.

Just plug your guitar, open up a sequencer, apply  some plugins and play your music, note down your new ideas directly in tracks while you are recording, and change the way they sound as you wish.

Sonuus i2M sends audio and midi signals together to your computer. You won't need any power plug, protools hardwares or other complications. Infact you'd never need to write down midi partitures using your keyboard and mouse again."


[20 June 2011] Sonuus endorses Simone Vignola

Sonuus are pround to announce the endorsement of bassist Simone Vignola. Only 23 years of age, Simone has received great acclaim for his live-looping solo performances, including opening for Level 42 on their recent Italian tour.


[10 June 2011] i2M musicport firmware/editor update (1.2.00)

We are pleased to announce that a new firmware update is available for the i2M musicport. It includes several new features, including many suggested to us by existing users:

  • Latency Test mode to help you debug audio latency problems on your computer setup.
  • Note Extend to allow gapless transitions between notes, even if your playing includes gaps.
  • Allow any MIDI controller to be used for the breath controller output.

[30 April 2011] 64-bit ASIO driver for i2M musicport

A 64-bit version of the i2M musicport ASIO driver is now available from the software pages.

The 64-bit ASIO driver is only required if your application (DAW) is a 64-bit application. If you are using a 32-bit application on 64-bit Windows, you still need to use the 32-bit ASIO driver. It is therefore recommended that users of 64-bit Operating Systems install both the 32-bit and 64-bit ASIO drivers so it can support all applications.


[30 April 2011] Firmware Updater 1.0.01

A minor update has been released for the Windows version of the Sonuus Firmware Updater. It is now available from the software pages.

There is a problem in Windows when a HID device (which is what the i2M musicport appears as in update mode) is connected for the first time: the device appears briefly then disappears. This cause the udpater problems because it detects the device and starts to update, then the device is "unplugged" by the OS. So the update fails. This new version works around this problem to ensure the firmware is updated correctly, even if the operating system "disconnects" the device part-way through the update.

We recommend you get this latest update if you are using Windows (the OSX version has not been updated; this problems was restricted to the Windows platform).


[29 April 2011] New videos from Frankfurt MusikMesse

We have posted some new videos from MusikMesse:

Lee Sklar -- Sonuus B2M Chat Lee Sklar (the World's No1 working bassist) playing around with the Sonuus B2M whilst chatting to us about it

[8 November 2010] Sonuus endorses Yorkie

Sonuus are proud to announce the endorsement of Yorkie, former member of Liverpool Indie giants SPACE (Neighbourhood, Female Of The Species, Avenging Angels), and now working on the Mongoose project.

Yorkie started using the Sonuus B2M to allow his studio projects to be taken to the stage without over-reliance on keyboads.

"As a bassist, I found the B2M gave me all of the control I needed over my soft synths, without having to play a keyboard. I now happily play a Moog, Cello, Synth & even Melodica with my usual trusty old bass.

The G2M gives us the ability to layer and warp already warped guitars by adding synth/string textures to the sound.

The latency is non-existant and MOONGOOSE would highly recommend both of these wonderful units."
