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
