Sinevibes Intros Turbulence 2 Distortion Processor


SineVibes has introduced Turbulence 2, a distortion processor that “bends” and “curls” the input signal in real time, transforming it into synthetic textures.

Here’s what they have to say about Turbulence:

Even the most basic waveforms instantly become rich sounds with great density and character. Almost all of Turbulence’s parameters are animated by an extremely flexible sequencer with each of its 32 steps having individual transformer model, curve, modulation envelope – allowing easy creation of complex, lively rhythmic soundscapes. Turbulence can also store eight full snapshots of itself within a single preset, letting you switch them during performance or via host automation.

Controlling all of this technology is never hard thanks to Turbulence’s clean and simple, colour-coded user interface. It is rendered by your Mac’s graphics processor which means super-swift responsiveness and zero effect on audio performance. And with subtle animations of parameter changes, using Turbulence is always nothing but a pleasure.


  • Four unique wave transformer models.
  • Input -24 dB/octave resonant low-pass filter.
  • Step sequencer with up to 32 steps, variable speed, timing and shuffle.
  • Transformer gate, type, curve, envelope modulation depth, and envelope shape individual per each sequencer step.
  • Eight full instance snapshots, multiple utility and randomisation functions.
  • Advanced transport sync algorithm with support for tempo and time signature automation.


Turbulence works with Logic, GarageBand, Live, ReNoise, Reaper, Studio One, Digital Performer and other software that supports Audio Unit effect plugins. It comes in 32/64 bit format for Intel Macs running OS X 10.6 or later, and supports Retina screen resolution.

Turbulence is available for Mac for $29. Audio demos and a demo version are available at the site.

  1. lol at voting this down, some nazi mac fanboy that is still holding out for some Macster Race coup that makes it illegal to make music in windows, sieg heiling every morning to his poster of Steve Jobs.

    This looks great, if it was also a VST I would buy it in an instant.

    1. and I mean the fart in the wind that voted down the first response, that fanboyed nothing just expressed a positive impression of the product and desire for additional availability.
