1. Tape Stop

 
Tape Stop
 

At about the same time as dinosaurs roamed the earth, magnetic tape was the hottest way to store recorded audio. Naturally, cave men discovered that starting and stopping the tape while playing back would lead to interesting effects.

kHs Tape Stop simulates this arcane technology in a simple way, allowing you to get great spindown/speedup sounds quickly with the push of a button. What’s next? Harnessing the power of fire?

Play button

The current state of the tape motor.

Stop Time knob

Time until the tape motor reaches full stop when stopping.

Start Time knob

Time until the tape motor reaches full speed when starting.

Curve

The speed curve of the tape motor starting/stopping.

Settings panel

Whenever you have your mouse cursor over a snapin theree is a small arrow at the top right corner (not visible in screenshot). It opens a settings panel where you handle presets. It also has a “randomize” button that can be useful. I guess…

Enabled checkbox

The small checkbox to the left of the plugin name is a checkbox that bypasses the effect when disabled.Resize handleThe bottom right corner of all Kilohearts plugins is a resize handle for scaling the UI to any size. This allows you to get a good view of the controls whatever the screen resolution, and also comes in handy if you need big controls, e.g. when using Tape Stop as a real-time effect on a touchscreen monitor during a live set. (This is not available when the snapin is used inside a snapin host.)


2. Trance Gate

 
Trance Gate
 

Trance Gate: Programmable gate

What if ___ _____ easily chop up ____ __ the sound __ _ rhythmical pattern?

Well now you can! Trance gate is a gate sequencer which quickly adds a rhyth  to a pad or lead, chops up a beat or adds more staccato to an arpeggio.

The world of anthem trance lies at your feet!

What’s a Snapin?

Pattern Select

Switches between the eight different pattern slots.

Pattern Editor

Edits the current pattern. Click to toggle steps on or off, click and drag to tie steps together.

Length display

The length of the current pattern.

Attack, Decay, Sustain and Release knobs

These knobs comtrol the ADSR envelope which is applied to your sound, using the specified pattern.

Resolution

Length of one step in the sequencer.

Mix

The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.

3. Snap Heap

 
Snap Heap
 

The Kilohearts Snapin framework is the easiest, most creative, sound design workflow you have ever come across. This free bundle contains Snap Heap, a basic snapin host plugin, alongside 5 useful snapins. Wha Wha What’s it all about? Managing effects is something that’s possible in pretty much every digital audio workstation out there, but managing effect chains can be cumbersome and tedious. With Snap Heap managing complex effect systems is super simple and nothing stands between your creativity and the speaker cones.


4. Transient Shaper

 
Transient Shaper
 

Snapins are isolated audio effect modules, each performing a specific task. The Kilohearts product lineup will allow you to combine these snapins in different ways in order to create interesting and unique combinations of effects.

Snapins can be loaded into your DAW as a standard VST or Audio Unit plugin, as well as into other Kilohearts plugins that can act as snapin hosts, for example Multipass.

Using a compressor is the most common way of adjusting the dynamics of a sound, but sometimes this can be a bit cumbersome. This is where Transient Shaper shines, giving you very direct control over the character of both the attack and sustaining sections of the sound in a way that’s simple to understand and tweak.

Attack

The amount of amplification or attenuation of the transient.

Pump

The amount of attenuation directly after the transient, emphasizing the transient without increasing the level.

Sustain

The amount of amplification or attenuation of the sustained sound.

Speed

Higher values results in snappier transient modification, and lower values result in smoother curves.

Clip

When enabled, the output signal is clipped to 0dB.

Sidechain

When enabled transients are detected based on a secondary input, but the effect is applied to the main input.

Settings panel

Whenever you have your mouse cursor over a snapin theree is a small arrow at the top right corner (not visible in screenshot). It opens a settings panel where you handle presets. It also has a “randomize” button that can be useful. I guess…

Enabled checkbox

5. Formant Filter

 
Formant Filter
 

Snapins are isolated audio effect modules, each performing a specific task. The Kilohearts product lineup will allow you to combine these snapins in different ways in order to create interesting and unique combinations of effects.

Snapins can be loaded into your DAW as a standard VST or Audio Unit plugin, as well as into other Kilohearts plugins that can act as snapin hosts, for example Multipass.

If your music doesn’t get enough “Aahs” and “Oohs”, maybe you should try putting them into the actual music? Formant Filter shapes the sound in a similar way to how the vocal tract works, leading to vowel-esque sounds. So, channel your inner robo-Tarzan.
Aaaaoooeoeeeoeeeee!

The Formant Filter will boost two frequencies to mimic the sounds of different vowels.

Vowel Selector Selects two frequencies to boost. We’ve put the phonetic symbols of some common vowel sounds on the selection pane. (Honestly that doesn’t help much. I have no idea how ɤ sounds anyway.) Applying a LFO modulation to either axis of the pane can give some nice human-esque qualities to your sound.

Q knob Adjust how powerful and narrow the frequency boost is.

Lows Allow low frequencies through the filter.

Highs Allow high frequencies through the filter.

Settings panel Whenever you have your mouse cursor over a snapin theree is a small arrow at the top right corner (not visible in screenshot). It opens a settings panel where you handle presets. It also has a “randomize” button that can be useful. I guess…

(This is not available when the snapin is used inside a snapin host.)


6. Pitch Shifter

 
Pitch Shifter
 

Are you out of tune? Do you want to be? Either way, pitch shifter uses grain delay to bring the pitch where you want it to be. Or at least somewhere else from where it already is.

The Pitch Shifter will adjust the pitch of the input signal up or down.

Pitch display

How much to adjust the pitch, in semitones.

Jitter knob

How much randomness to add to the pitch. A high jitter setting can give a unison-like effect. This is only available when Correlate is off.

Grain Size knob

During processing the pitch shifter chops up the audio into small snippets called grains. This setting adjusts the length of the grains, which can influence the sound.

Mix knob

The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.

Correlate

Enables a more advanced algorithm resulting in a more clear effect for many inputs. Be careful though as it might have problems with complex pads and textures.

Settings panel

Whenever you have your mouse cursor over a snapin there is a small arrow at the top right corner (not visible in screenshot). It opens a settings panel where you handle presets. It also has a “randomize” button that can be useful. I guess…

Snapins are isolated audio effect modules, each performing a specific task. The Kilohearts product lineup will allow you to combine these snapins in different ways in order to create interesting and unique combinations of effects.

Snapins can be loaded into your DAW as a standard VST or Audio Unit plugin, as well as into other Kilohearts plugins that can act as snapin hosts, for example Multipass.

When nostaliga hits, Bitcrush can bring you back to the digital hardware of times past. It simulates the audio being played back using a low quality sampler with limited sample rate and bit depth. Mm, crunchy.

The Bitcrush can be used to create distorting effects that sound like that of scraping analog radio, or inherently lo-fi sound sources, like old video games.

Rate display

Down sample the signal to a minimum of 200 Hz.

Bits knob

Quantize the amplitude of each sample of the signal.A lower value will result in a more distorted sound.

ADC Q knob

Quality of the analog-to-digital conversion. A lower value will add dissonant aliasing in the low frequencies.

DAC Q knob

Quality of the digital-to-analog conversion. A lower value will add dissonant aliasing in the high frequencies.

Dither knob

Adds noise to the signal in order to reduce distortion caused by quantization.

Mix knob

The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.

Settings panel

8. Faturator

 
Faturator
 

Grit, oomph, fatness, raw, color, or just that certain something. Sometimes your sounds need a shovel of dirt. Faturator is standing ready to tear whatever you throw at it apart violently, and then gently (but firmly) put it back together fatter and rawer than ever.

Faturator can do everything from adding subtle and warm gritty character to your sounds to slam them into a wall of heavy saturation and digital fuzz. Contrary to many distortion effects, Faturator will preserve the dynamics of your sound and work its wonders on it regardless of input gain.

For the heck of it, it can also color the input to emphasize a specific tone of the sound, or throw some stereo width into the mix. Everything to give you a fast and easy way of making any input come alive.

Snapins are isolated audio effect modules, each performing a specific task. The Kilohearts product lineup will allow you to combine these snapins in different ways in order to create interesting and unique combinations of effects.

Snapins can be loaded into your DAW as a standard VST or Audio Unit plugin, as well as into other Kilohearts plugins that can act as snapin hosts, for example Multipass.


9. Reverser

 
Reverser
 

Remember in The Ring when Samara kind of walks backwards but still towards you and it’s all scary and weird? This is not really like that. However, kHs Reverser does delay and reverse sections of the input sound resulting in anything from hauntingly eerie textures to reverse percussion hits.

Delay display

The amount of time before the delayed sound starts playing. This will be expressed in milliseconds or as parts of a beat, depending on the Unit setting.

Delay time unit

When Unit is set to ‘Sync’ the delay time will be synchronized to the song tempo.

Crossfade knob

Time to ramp in/out the reversed audio to avoid any clicks and pops, in percent of the reversed section length.

Mix knob

The dry/wet mix of this effect. A lower value will let some of the unmodified signal through.

Settings panel

Whenever you have your mouse cursor over a snapin theree is a small arrow at the top right corner (not visible in screenshot). It opens a settings panel where you handle presets. It also has a “randomize” button that can be useful. I guess…

10. Frequency Shifter

 
Frequency Shifter
 

Do you ever think to yourself: “Screw harmonics!”? Well, ok, probably not. But let’s do it anyway!

Frequency shifter will shift all the frequencies in the input signal up or down by a certain amount. This kind of shifting will ruin the harmonic content of the input signal, making it sound dissonant. Mmm… Dissonance…

Shift display

How much to shift all frequencies by.

Settings panel

Whenever you have your mouse cursor over a snapin there is a small arrow at the top right corner (not visible in screenshot). It opens a settings panel where you handle presets. It also has a “randomize” button that can be useful. I guess…
