Cataract is a Segment Multiplexer plugin geared toward electronic music production and experimental sound design. Cataract features an arsenal of sample scanners with integrated modulation sequencers and morphing functions. This makes it possible to construct architecturally complex patterns ranging from nuanced percussive articulations to intricate particle sound effects and all out generative hyper glitch chaos.
Infinitely transform your audio files with Cataract’s extensive randomisation and modulation options. Warp pitched samples into parallax melodies or redistribute loop segments into generative polyrhythms. Whether you are sculpting articulate percussion patterns for an electronic music EP or designing high-tech cyborg effects for a sci-fi game, Cataract will give your projects a unique cutting-edge twist.

Convex is a multi-effects processor designed to facilitate the creation of contorted artifacts, syncopated patterns and skewed digital textures. Based around three classic effects; multimode filter, pitch shifter and delay, Convex generates dynamic variations of the input signal by morphing between two instances of each effect and modulating their key parameters using an extensive array of control modules.
Driving its core are 4 LFOs with optional tempo sync and 2 envelope followers which can have their output inverted or combined using mixers and multipliers. Convex features 100 factory presets from Ivo Ivanov, Thomas Hennebert, Nicholas Yochum, Daed and Subjex. From mellow dub delays to mind-blowing glitch sequences, Convex will bring a broad range of exciting effects to your audio arsenal.
