Sinevibes has introduced Zap, a ‘unique mini-synthesizer’ controlled by incoming audio.
It starts with an envelope follower that tracks the peak energy of the sound and then applies it onto the frequency of a monophonic oscillator. With three different oscillator waveform modes and features like envelope stepping, Zap can turn any sound source into dynamic synth sweeps, sub-basses, blips, chirps or glitches.
- Signal envelope follower with variable lag time and curve, plus level stepping feature.
- Three oscillator modes: pure sine, ring-modulated sines & phase-modulated sines.
- Realtime output waveform display.
Zap works with Logic, GarageBand, Live, MainStage, ReNoise, Reaper, Studio One, Digital Performer, Tracktion 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.
Zap is a free download from the Sinevibes site.
