Sinevibes Intros Skew Non-linear Audio Reverser Effect

Sinevibes has introduced Skew, a non-linear audio reverser.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

“Perfectly synchronized to the host transport, it is constantly recording the incoming audio into a buffer – and playing it back in reversed chunks. The big trick in this algorithm is that it’s able to warp its playback speed via a selection of non-linear curves, thus bending the pitch in various ways.

With each parameter having an extremely wide range of adjustment, Skew can be used to create multiple rhythmically-precise effects such as reversing, tape rewind, pitch slides, detune, glitching, and scratching. Thanks to its fine calibration, responsiveness, and DJ-style crossfade control, Skew can easily be automated or manipulated in real-time to add exciting musical complexity and create cool build-ups, breaks, and transitions.”


  • Audio reverser with precise transport synchronization
  • Six non-linear curves for warping the audio playback speed
  • Fractional chunk size adjustment with 256 possible values (from 1/16 note to 16 bars)
  • Meticulously tuned smoothing envelopes with optional overlapping
  • DJ-style crossfade control
  • Lag filters on all continuous parameters for smooth, click-free adjustment
  • Supports mono › mono, mono › stereo, and stereo › stereo channel configurations

Here’s a demo with a Korg Triton as the source:

Skew is available now for $29 USD.

    1. That´s great, glad you enjoy them. However I have given up on Sinevibes. Purchased some of their early plugins and they were just abandoned with no support for newer OSes etc.

      1. Our older plugins are discontinued but most definitely are not abandoned. First of all, almost all of them work just fine on the latest macOS. Second, we had almost finalized the entire bundle of 30+ plugins with updates/fixes and native Apple Silicon support – but then the war started in Ukraine and me and my family had to relocate. We plan to get back to this as soon as physically possible. So… don’t give up on us please 🙂

      2. Also, just to add, we shipped many free v2 updates for those legacy plugins. And a few more free updates are on the way.

  1. I only recently became familiar with Sinevibes. Tried the demos.
    Simply amazing.

    I did not catch earlier that the they were out of the Ukraine but am glad to know as I had been waiting to purchase some after getting a chance to explore some other recent plugin purchases.

    But to show support, albeit in a very small way (and obviously beneficial to me), I am going to buy the entire collection right now. Thank you for the great work.

    Wishing all the best to Artemiy and the Sinevibes team from Canada.
