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. Continue reading
Sinevibes has introduced Extremum, a new effects processor for OS X (AU).
According to the company, Extremum was built with one huge goal: ‘to turn even the most simple sounds into insanely interesting, tonally rich and exciting new materia’l.
Extremum features a collection of phaser, chorus and filter algorithms, comprised of up to 256 stages and 16 feedback lines – all of which apply radical but finely controllable transformations. To take it even further, Extremum has its own tempo-synchronised modulator with multiple waveforms, variable lag and chaos. Continue reading
Sinevibes has introduced Singularity – a new type of delay effect for OS X.
It starts with a tempo-synchronised feedback delay line, capable of true stereo panning, and its tail is then sent into three effect units connected in series. Each of these processors includes a selection of different algorithms: from filters, phasers and choruses to digital- and analog-style distortion, frequency shifter and granulator.
In addition to all this, Singularity has four modulation generators for parameter animation – all of which lets you create extremely sophisticated, out-of-this-world delay and echo effects. Continue reading
SineVibes has released Sequential 3.0, the latest version of their polyphonic multi-effect sequencer.
Sequential is a dynamic multi-effect that allows you to trigger different processing and synthesis algorithms in a rhythmical fashion. It features a total of 19 fine-tuned effects that filter, distort, reshape, stutter and even generate audio. Continue reading
SineVibes has released Atom – a free filter effect for OS X with focus on dynamic, tempo-synchronised modulation.
According to SineVibes, Atom allows you to easily create lively, elaborate filter effects that work perfectly for pretty much any kind of input source. Continue reading
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.
Sinevibes has introduced Hexonator, a new audio effect for OS X. According to Sinevibes, Hexonator ‘creates organic chord progressions, tasty melodic textures, or ambient drones out of almost anything.’ Continue reading
SineVibes has released Sequential For iPad – an iOS version of its audio effects app. Continue reading
