Real-Time Structural Audio Morphing

MORPH 2 is a real-time plug-in for structural audio morphing, the sonic equivalent of one object slowly changing its shape to become a different object - for example, one face becoming another. Super-charged with a selection of 5 different morphing algorithms, a stunningly clean formant shifter as well as a lush reverb that seems to extend sounds much like some highly revered vintage hardware boxes, MORPH 2 opens up a whole new universe of sounds to explore. Create seamless morphing transitions, new hybrid sounds that combine aspects of existing ones, physically impossible instruments, the furthest-out creature and robot voices, talkbox-esque effects and other outrageously unique new sounds. Whether you're a sound designer for film or games looking for that signature sound, or a music producer or remix artist wanting to create new content from existing recordings...look no further, MORPH is for you!

Key Features:

  • 5 Unique feature-aware structural audio morphing algorithms.
  • Morphs between two input channels or input and side-chain.
  • Dual morphing circuits with crossfade option.
  • High-quality formant shifter.
  • Uses cutting edge signal transform technology for superb fidelity and intelligibility.
  • Both inputs can be mixed into the output or switched to solo.
  • Built-In Hall Reverb.
  • Fully real-time for immediate results.
  • MORPH 2 X/Y Morphing Control

Shape-Shifter

MORPH takes two input signals, A and B, and creates a new sound or transition that has characteristics of both – like a circle gradually turning into a square. Singing guitars, dogs that speak, or cymbals made out of mains hum - the choices are endless. MORPH computes two separate morphing transitions from A and B simultaneously, one starting out at A and shaping it to become B, the other starting out at B and shaping it to become A. The two sound completely different. Additionally, you can crossfade between the two for even more sonic options. All this is achieved using a single two-dimensional "X/Y" control, and completely in real-time – insert plugin, set up routing, go!

A Whole New Universe Of Sounds. A Multi-Verse, Actually

MORPH 2.0 features not one but three different morphing algorithms, two of which have additional low-latency versions with their own distinct sonic character, for a total of 5 different flavors of sound hybridization goodness (considering that A-to-B and B-to-A sound different, it's effectively even 10 flavors...). Add to that the brand-new Amplitude Sensitivity, Complexity and Formant Shift parameters and you'll never run out of unique new sounds.

FORMANTS, Not Just Formants

Speaking of the MORPH 2 formant shifter...it is – quite simply – stunningly good. Whether you use it on voice, drums, instruments or SFX captured in the field – it always sounds natural and focused, preserving all your sound's detail, without introducing any of the granular or "spectral blurring" artifacts associated with traditional approaches to formant shifting. If you're reading this, most likely you are a discerning audio connoisseur, and thus most likely you'll fall in love with the MORPH 2 formant shifter the first time you hear it!

Impossible Mathematics, Easier Than Pie

Because of its pretty-much-one-control approach, using MORPH is a breeze. That said, it does some very heavy mathematical lifting under the hood. While the term "audio morphing" is widely used, what it typically describes is a simple interpolation of parameter values or spectral data. MORPH takes an entirely different approach, which is both mathematically a lot more complex and at the same time gives totally unique results. As an analogy, it creates wire-frame models for the two inputs in real-time, and then shapes one model to become the other – transforming one sound into the other structurally. Talk about sound transformation power at your fingertips...

To Boldly Go...

So what is this plug-in for? In a nut-shell: creating unheard new sounds and smooth, sonically pleasing transitions that are different from the cookie-cutter crossfade approach. Create creature voices by combining speech with other sounds, apply the features of a drum loop to a sustained pad, transition from one ambience or SFX to another with surreal intermediate stages, or or create hybrid rhythms or instruments...start exploring a whole new universe of sounds today with the 30-day free trial of MORPH 2!

Channel Layouts

MORPH 2 comes as two binaries, MORPH and MORPH SC (side-chain), to accommodate for the particluarities of the various plugin formats:

  • AU: Dual mono (MORPH), stereo with stereo side-chain (MORPH SC)
  • RTAS: dual mono (MORPH), stereo with mono sie-chain (MORPH SC), quad-to-stereo (MORPH)
  • AAX Native: dual mono (MORPH), stereo with mono sie-chain (MORPH SC), quad-to-stereo (MORPH)
  • VST: dual mono (MORPH), quad-to-stereo (MORPH)

Copy Protection

MORPH uses the latest PACE copy protection, which allows you to place your activation on your machine or on an iLok 2* (not included). You will need a free iLok.com account to use our software, including the demos – but you do not necessarily need the iLok 2 dongle, if your machine has internet access. All required software is installed along with our plugins, but we generally recommend downloading the latest versions directly from iLok.com.

Please note: The older, first generation (blue) iLok is not supported!
