This came into my email this morning. These guys are amazing.

Dear Friend of Rhythmic Robot,

Introducing Silencio
Fully-professional multimode 24-bit silence engine
In a world of loudness wars and over-crammed mixes, what our music sometimes needs is space to be; the individuation and clarity that come from the absence of sound; in other words, contrast. Silencio brings you that contrast in pristine 24-bit quality, whenever and wherever you need it.


Comprising eight meticulously-recorded silent environments (six analogue and two digital) plus hard bypass, Silencio gives you instant access to different tonalities of silence across a full 88-key range. A comprehensive control set allows further tailoring of the core silences. Its uses are limited only by your imagination, but there are some standout applications:
• Perfect for adding space to a mix. Today’s mixes easily become crowded, with frequency bands jostling for attention and fatiguing the listener. Use Silencio to bring air and space to your mix. Just one or two tracks of Silencio can make all the difference.

• Ideal for Jazz musicians. We often hear jazz aficionados saying of great musicians that we should ‘listen to the notes the guy isn’t playing’. This is central to classic jazz soloing. With Silencio, you can play these notes directly.

• Great for experimental musicians. Silencio can be at the heart of experimental music. It’s ideal for playing John Cage’s 4’33 (in fact it’s possible to play 4’33 in under three minutes using Silencio).

‘What we cannot speak about, we must pass over in silence’
– Ludwig Wittgenstein

So convinced are we of the importance of this unique instrument that we are launching it with a once-in-a-lifetime offer: instead of the usual RRP of £69, you can get Silencio for FREE for ONE DAY ONLY. Head on over to Rhythmic Robot to hear the audio demo and check out what Silencio can do for your tracks.

Best wishes,

The Professor (and Mongo)

The audio demos on the site are very revealing.

Indeed, the differences between the analog and digital are interesting.

They stole that gag from SonicFinger's "Dead Quietinator" Plug-in like Steve Jobs stole the Mac graphical interface from IBM... It's a cold world out there.

Not IBM, but Xerox Parc. And I'd hardly say stolen, Xerox was too shortsighted to do anything with it and they freely allowed them to tour their R&D, and received many shares of Apple in exchange.

I have several of the original optical mice at work, by Xerox, lol. Xerox is a funny company.
