Sinevibes has announced Reactive, a new AudioUnit plugin that turns any audio into melodic material.
Reactive detects the input signal’s dynamic envelope and transforms it into pitch information via a note matrix with eight switchable patterns.
The envelope and pitch are then used to drive three distinct synthesis engines – waveshape modeling, phase modulation, and subtractive with ring modulation – allowing you to create a variety of sounds, from gentle drones and melodic strums to fat basses and weird glitch lines.
What can it do?
- Use any sound source’s dynamics to generate new melodies.
- Instantly transform vocal beat-boxing or simple microphone tapping into bass and synth lines, glitches, and noises.
- Turn rhythmic audio material into interesting strumming or arpeggiating synthesizer sounds.
Reactive is expected to be released by early May.
