Hologram is a creative effect processor that resynthesizes the sound in real time. It does this by splitting the input signal into multiple frequency bands, analyzing their dynamics, and then recreating the signal’s spectrum with an array of sine oscillators. The result is a wide variety of pleasantly smooth synthetic tones whose spectral and dynamic characteristics are controlled by the input audio. To take it even further, Hologram also has two highly flexible, multi-waveform modulators that apply rhythmic motion to its re-synthesis engine.
The plugin features a color-coded interface with sharp graphics, handy parameter value displays and lively animations. A large spectrogram view allows to precisely see what the effect is doing. And as usual with Sinevibes software, Hologram supports Retina screens and offers great responsiveness even on old or low-spec hardware.
Fraction is an effect plugin for deep real-time manipulation and re-engineering of sound. It features 8 slicers which record and repeat small portions of the input audio at defined points in time, slightly or radically changing the rhythmical arrangement. Each slice has three dedicated effect processors with a wide range of algorithms, and their parameters can be animated in perfect sync with the slice repeater. Rolls, stutters, fills, breaks and transitions can be done with unprecedented ease – but Fraction has enough power to create whole musical pieces out of almost anything.
Like every Sinevibes product, Fraction has a clean, carefully crafted user interface with animated and color-coded controls. Its live audio waveform display lets you visually place slice markers on particular sounds, and custom graphics for each effect type respond to effect parameters. So despite this many features, Fraction is a doddle to learn and enjoyable to use on daily basis.
Extremum is an effects processor built with one huge goal: to turn even the most simple sounds into insanely interesting, tonally rich and exciting new material. It 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. And to take it even further, Extremum has its own tempo-synchronised modulator with multiple waveforms, variable lag and chaos.
It would not be a Sinevibes product if Extremum did not feature a stylish, animated user interface. With its clean layout and colour-coded controls, you will hardly ever need to glance into the user manual. The graphics also do not tax your Mac’s main processor and support displays with retina resolution.
Singularity is a delay effect unlike any other. It starts with a tempo-synchronised feedback delay line capable of true stereo panning, and its tail is then sent into three extremely capable effect units connected in series. Each of these processors includes a rich 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.
As always with Sinevibes plugins, Singularity’s user interface is built using high-contrast, colour-coded elements with lively animations and efficient rendering. Delay, effects and modulators feature interactive graphics which let you understand what’s going on just after a quick glance. Together with thoroughly calibrated parameters with realtime smoothing, Singularity is a bliss to operate in any environment – and in any mood.
Flow is a flanger that goes far beyond traditional – instead of simple up-and-down sweeps, it employs a sophisticated envelope sequencer to modulate the sound in a rhythmical fashion. Flow has two different flanger characters with positive or negative feedback, advanced synchronisation and timing features, plus a host of automation and randomisation options. All this combined allows you to create a myriad of unique effects: from intricate “jet plane” patterns and dancing comb filtering to complex swooshes or stuttered glitches. Plus, each instance of Flow stores eight snapshots of itself that can be switched in realtime or via automation.
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 more animation, Octagon has three tempo-synchronised modulators with a myriad of waveforms and modulation destinations.
Hexonator is built upon six melodically tuned resonators which isolate and emphasise matching frequency components in the incoming signal. With its chord sequencer, it makes it possible to "play" these resonators musically, producing fresh synthetic sounds that are full of life and character. Hexonator also includes a multi-mode filter for final shaping, and everything can be animated using two powerful modulators with multiple waveforms and adjustable chaos.
A conventional delay constantly processes and echoes all of the audio on the input. Multitude uses gate sequencers to control sends into four individual delay lines – allowing you to activate them at precise moments in time. Want a delay only on that particular note, chord, or hit? With Multitude, you can do this. And so much more.
Array is an AudioUnit plugin for creating rhythmic spectral effects. It divides the input sound using 8 finely tuned, smooth -36 dB/octave band pass filters, and allows to sequence each frequency band individually. Thanks to its precise timing, seamless switching and an incredibly simple, color-coded interface, Array is an essential processing instrument for everyone.
Molecule is a multi-band processor that allows you to split the sound into three frequency bands – low, mid, high – and pass them independently through different effects. It includes a vast array of algorithms such as comb filter, chorus ensemble, frequency shifter as well as barber-pole phaser, circuit-bent filter, digital- and analog-style distortion. Each of the three bands also gets its own tempo-synchronised modulator with multiple waveforms and realtime randomisation. Moreover, Molecule lets you store up to eight complete snapshots of itself and switch between them in realtime or via host automation.
Diffusion is an AudioUnit synthesizer plugin for creating unique basslines and motion sounds. Its engine combines additive oscillators and waveshape modeling with an advanced matrix sequencer that allows for over 400 different parameter combinations per step. All this is controlled via an intuitive color-coded interface, making Diffusion a one-of-a-kind instrument that’s both deeply capable and fun.
Drift is a unique effects processor based on two independent Lorenz chaos systems. These are three-dimensional oscillators widely used by scientists and engineers to model convection in liquids and gases. Here, these random but smooth signals are used to modulate spectral effects, sound level and stereo pan, giving them the dynamic characteristics of wind gusts, air turbulence or rising water bubbles.
All of Drift’s functionality is neatly presented by an intuitive interface wholly built with colour-coded graphics. It features two- dimensional representations of the chaos systems as well as subtle animations for all controls, adding up to a pleasant, organic experience. Together with precise parameter calibration, this makes Drift a musical, productive and always enjoyable tool.
Sequential is an AudioUnit plugin for creating amazing rhythmical effect patterns. It features unique algorithms ranging from filters, waveshapers and distortion, to ring modulation and even audio-controlled oscillators. These effects are rhythmically switched via a step sequencer matrix, allowing you to create intricate, lively processing patterns. Sequential has been finely tuned to instantly deliver superb musical results, and is capable of radical sound transformations with any type of sound or music style.
