Sinevibes Malfunction review by MusicRadar

A product from

Torturous tone plugin for sonic sadists

There are countless plugins on the market whose sole purpose is to take your pristine audio clips and reduce them to the very epitome of quivering distress. Now, with Sinevibes' new Mac Audio Units plugin, Malfunction, we have another set of thumbscrews with which to mete out cruel and unusual treatment to our samples and recordings.

As Sinevibes' description of it - a "circuit-bent filter" - suggests, Malfunction is not an effects processor for the faint-hearted. The plugin features three discrete filter stages: a low-pass filter at the input stage feeds said "circuit-bent" low-pass filter, which in turn feeds a multi-mode output filter. The signal is then mixed with the dry source via a wet/dry balance control before being sent to the plugin's output.

Pro’s:

  • Effective sound-masher. 
  • Goes from extreme to ridiculous. 
  • Circuit-bent filter can self-oscillate. 
  • LFO generator adds rhythmic interest. 
  • Effect is controllable despite its intensity. 
  • So cheap!

Con’s:

  • GUI could be improved.
