Granular Cloud Reverb

Important note: This software is Mac compatible only (VST3 & Audio Units) and will not function on PC computers.

Albedo is a granular cloud reverb. It constantly records incoming audio into a buffer, and at the same time runs up to 64 individual looping playheads – called grains – scattered within this buffer. All grains have their own random size and position, and as they are overlaid together, a lush “cloud of sound” effect is produced.

Thanks to dual envelope generators per grain, playback speed has continuous adjustment with perfectly smooth transitions between forward and reverse directions – enabling live audio manipulation much like on a tape machine or a turntable, including a fully stopped state.

With multiple detailed controls, Albedo is capable of a vast variety of other effects, too: from melting pitch shifts and chaotic reversed delays to chorus atmospheres and dark grimy dissonance. Albedo can also “freeze” its buffer and keep playing the granular cloud indefinitely, allowing you to layer the original input signal on top – and making this plugin a great performance tool.
