Sinevibes has announced three new effects for Korg Multi-Engine synths, including the Prologue, Minilogue XD and the NTS-1.
Blend is a multi-voice chorus. It’s comprised of three fully independent chorus layers, each modulated by its own parabolically-shaped oscillator. Due to relative modulation phase offsets between the three oscillators, this algorithm can create lush unison and ensemble effects. It’s also capable of producing highly dissonant sounds.
Dispersion is a ‘bouncing ball’ delay. It runs up to 10 delay taps sequentially, with their times spread according to a non-linear formula. This produces a series of sound repetitions much like bounces of a ball that has been dropped onto a surface.
Each round of bounces is calculated to fit within a particular tempo fraction, making this a rhythmically precise and musically rich effect. The algorithm comes in two versions: with natural time spread (+), as well as inverted spread (-).
Finally, Finite is a granular pitch shifter. It uses real-time buffer recording and dual variable playback heads to speed the incoming audio up or slow it down, changing its pitch.
The algorithm features high-quality spline interpolation for smooth pitch adjustment within the range of two octaves. Its built-in feedback line also applies the pitch shift recursively – letting you create ethereal, spacey sounds.
Pricing and Availability
The effects are available now for $19 each from the Sinevibes site.
