SineVibes has introduced Octagon – a new effect for OS X that they describe as ‘insanely fun’:
This is an insanely fun spectral effect that can do reversed delays, create complex echo rhythms, and model alien reverb chambers.
Octagon splits the audio into eight frequency bands, each having its own dedicated delay line. Delay time, feedback, pan, playback direction and other parameters can be set individually per band, allowing to selectively apply delay effects onto different parts of the sound spectrum. For even further animation, Octagon has three tempo-synchronised modulators with a myriad of waveforms and modulation destinations.
Just like all of our products, Octagon features an extremely elegant, beautiful user interface with colour-coded elements. Thanks to the clean layout and optimised contrast, there is little time needed to tap into its full creative potential. Fast, smooth response and subtle animations make using Octagon a pure joy.

Sinevibes has introduced a new effect, Malfunction, designed to turn drum loops into glitchy mayhem, make basses scream and beg for mercy and ‘burn anything to ashes’.
Here’s what they have to say about Malfunction:
Warped from inside. This unique effect is based on a special low-pass filter that has been ‘circuit-bent’ – that is, the algorithm has messed up internal connections and doesn’t operate normally. It produces an incredibly characterful, screaming distortion that is full of attitude and puts out various unpredictable but controllable buzzes and noises.
SineVibes has introduced Switch – a new app for OS X that lets you ‘slice and strobe’ drum beats, apply intricate motion onto instruments and vocals and other rhythmic gate effects.
