1. Looperator

 
Looperator
 

Enter the FX Matrix!
Looperator chops up your audio and turns it into something new. In the process, you can dispose of the classics like Filters and Reverbs, but also trippy Loop and Vinyl manipulations.

Looperator makes you sound as if you worked on your track for hours and hours and really all it took was a click of a button.

MAIN FEATURES

  • 16-Step Sample Slicer
  • Looper with Reverse Mode
  • Time Stretch & Talkbox Filter
  • Recall presets with MIDI notes
  • Independent Control for left/right Channel
  • Unlimited Undo/Redo
  • Intelligent Random
  • 5 Parameters per effect and step

Plug in and let Loose!

Looperator unites two concepts: you can re-arrange the material with the Slicer and place effects with surgical precision. Right from the start, we aimed at a tool that is easy to handle and produces favourable results.

The preset tools make creating of rolls, loops and stutter edits, that can be fiddly to build in a DAW, a matter of a few mouse clicks.

And when inspiration has left the room, the smart random algorithms with detailed programming options will generate sequences with a high chance of sounding balanced and useable.

Extensive MIDI Integration & Modest on your CPU
Looperator can be triggered in sync with the DAW’s transport controls, or via notes from a MIDI track. In a classic DJ setup, it syncs with your DJ software.

You can assign complete effect sequences to MIDI notes – this way you can trigger individual patterns. This gives you plenty of flexibility when it comes to applying magic to audio signals in a live environment.

Find a boring drum loop! In under a minute, you’ll have something sounding not only completely different, but truly compelling.

It’s undemanding on your resources, so running a number of instances and incorporating the results into a broader project is a truly effortless process.

The Beauty of Under-the-Hood Editing Power
Despite its simple interface, Looperator is a surprisingly deep plug-in if you really dig in.

Each effect holds its individual parameters (5 settings), each of which can be controlled by one of 20 selectable and adjustable envelope shapes, a simple automation-ready parameter dial, an envelope follower, or a randomiser.

Much of the time, you won’t need to go any further than the ready-made steps, but when you do, the four user-defined steps per track give you full and precise control of vital effect parameters on a per-step basis.

When it comes to animating lively sequences on a detailed level, the possibilities are literally endless.

Dynamics and Depth
The processing chain runs from top to bottom and you can alter the order of the six lanes by a simple vertical drag–and–drop.

If for example, the Slicer is below FX1, then the results of FX1 will be included in the slices as you sequence them—after which they’ll be filtered, looped and processed through FX2 and the envelopes.

Each effect module has an individual dry/wet and the global mix control boasts 6 different setups.

All UI elements put the spotlight on the task at hand and directly respond to every user action with visual feedback.

Take a Peek at the Manual, or Don’t…

Don’t overthink it! Looperator allows unlimited undo steps. This security encourages experimentation. Silence your critical voice, paint some patterns, and when it sounds good, save the preset.

Features and logic will become apparent through use and you’ll hear for yourself that Looperator’s output of new ideas from the first moment is intoxicating.

From subtle enhancements to spectacular effect pyrotechnics: Looperator’s expressive potential quickly approaches the character of an instrument.

Sounds & Presets

Rearrange your groove..!

Looperator comes with over 300 presets, ready to instantly transform your sounds. The factory library is categorised, making it easy to tell at a glance what sort of sonic role each set of patches is best suited to.


2. WOW 2

 
WOW 2
 

WOW 2 is Here! Creative Multi-Filterbox Get that Warm and Juicy Sound!

Everything that you need in a filter unit – and nothing that you don’t – in a compact GUI that gets right down to business.

MAIN FEATURES

  • 21 Filter Types
  • LFO, Env.-Follower, Step Seq. & Wobble
  • Non Aliasing
  • Distortion with 3 Overdrives & 4 Digital Functions
  • Distortion Pre- or Post Filter Units
  • Envelope Follower with Frequency Detection
  • 9 Human vocal Sounds in Vowel Filter
  • Dynamic Oversampling across the board

Designed for Best Harmonics & Audio Quality

All 21 filters produce a stunning analogue sound with huge resolution and free of any aliasing. From singing Comb to a steep 8-pole Lowpass from dirty Diode MS to the gnarly 030. WOW2 offers all the filters you can wish for. And all of them work in Vowel Mode, showing off the wide variety of humanoid sounds.

The extraordinary modulation system multiplies the possibilities to modular level: for instance with modulatable modulators.

The presets are a good place to start. Or try a steep 8-pole LP on a bass sound and taste that bubbly, smacking sound.

WOW’s Talkbox lets you Pick any two Vowels out of a Choice of Nine

Swing the cutoff between two vowels to create formant-shaping effects on your dry signal. Modulate the cutoff (or the selected vowels themselves…) for distinct chorus and flanger effects. Works best with Comb or Bandpass combined on high resonance settings!

The vowels are: [i:] as in seat, [e] as in hen, [æ] as in fat, [y] as in tu (French), [ə] as in the, [ɑ] as in father, [ɔ] as in awe, [o] as in copy, and [u] as in boot.

The Real Magic Happens When Modulation Steps in

There are four sources: an envelope follower with frequency detection, the LFO with 13 waveforms, a 16-step step sequencer and the Wobble Knob (lifted from our Cyclop synth).

Targets and intensity (bi-polar) are assigned in the circular elements at the foot of the modulation section – or you just right-click any parameter and assign a source – couldn’t be easier.

Pushing the Mod Section to Extremes

This is a different beast compared to the other modulators. The central knob controls two things: the shape of the LFO (16 different waveforms) while also changing the speed (12 tempo-synced rates).

The knob can be modulated itself (pick the LFO for a start) and this is what the wobble control is all about: to get that knob moving!

Fourfold Oversampling for harmonic Manipulation without Aliasing

Seven algorithms can be engaged before or after the filter section, which greatly broadens the sonic range. Pick the tube-inspired “Parabolic”, the delicately-chiselled “Bit Crusher”, a Sine(!) or “Diabolic” from digital hell.

Volume is stable even at high levels, which will save you cumbersome automation when things get rather dynamic.

Sounds & Presets

Everything from subtle filter sweeps to all-out modulated chaos:

  • WOW2 comes with more than 250 presets…just one click away. Randomize for instant inspiration!
  • Try it now! You’re in good company: Skrillex, Boyz Noise, SiriusMo & Modeselektor.

4. Obscurium

 
Obscurium
 

Timbral Organism

Obscurium is a synthesis tool for sound and pitch. It feeds on your input of scales & chords to produce futuristic soundscapes and vivid harmonics.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Avantgarde Sound Design Tool
  • 8-voice Saw, Pulse, Supersaw and FM Synthesis
  • VST Interface can host & control plug-ins
  • Generative Harmonies or straight MIDI-Input
  • MIDI out
  • Draw Tools, Modifiers and Super Obscure Mode
  • Parameter Shifting
  • 400 Presets with Pads, Drums & Atmos

A Surprisingly Versatile Tool
Obscurium animates you to explore new paths to creation of music & sound design. Like a modular system, it allows for most complex circuits, yet remains easily accessible.

It will change your process of making music, to a fun and playful state of flow and you’ll come up with patch after patch of cool melodic and chordal passages that intiate new tracks. Never mind the possibilities of the VST synth integration!

If you are sound designing for films, adverts or games, if you are looking for a fresh short cut to your creative cloud, give it a go!

Obscurium’s Scope can only be Matched by very Large and Costly Modular Setups
The two sound generators are deceptively basic looking. Number 1 is an emulation of an analogue oscillator with a unison functionality. The second oscillator uses FM synthesis with a flexible ratio. Both can be routed through the effect section and you can mix and modulate them via the sequencer. Ask Audio’s Quick Tip

The Super Obscure Mode automatically draws sequences in most various ways. The Modifiers paint all parameters at once: while setting individual steps you can define their sound. Step by step a different sound – this is the agenda here.

Resurrect your library of Long-Forgotten Plug-ins
You can host any of your sound generator plug-ins for fresh sounds. Obscurium sends trigger, pitch and 11 automation lanes. Take your plug-ins to new levels!

Setting this up couldn’t be easier – pick any of the plug-in’s presets, use a random mode to assign parameters or use the Learn function in Obscurium’s hosting options.

The More you Play, the More you Discover
We implemented the unique possibility to rotate parameters and their motion lanes. Organic and complex sound changes just blossom around you with a tender touch of these faders. This feature can be modulated for endless evolving results.

Additionally, you can morph between two sequencer states (copy and paste between the two states is very useful!). That makes it possible to vary parts of a sequence while it repeats.

Obscure Clock

A Warp Drive to the new Dimension of Sequencing
The clock tab regulates the master speed, swing & direction. Combine its 2 mini sequencers for clock and direction with the main sequencer for finestcolourfull rhythm tapestry.

Sequencer steps can be assigned to MIDI notes, playback speed and direction might change at any time. A different sound for each note of a melody and tumbling rhythms, rolls and triplets, ready to be explored.

Sounds & Presets
An instrument with a mind-boggling scope…

  • Rummage around in these sounds…They give a pretty good idea of what Obscurium is capable of. Better yet: check out the demo – the modulated presets are a feast for ear and eye
  • The presets are a good inspiration and starting point for your own ideas. Obscurium invites you to experiment!

We also added a Sampler Mode to play back your own sounds.

Multimode filter, Compressor, Distortion and 2 kinds of Send Reverbs provide a vast toolset to carve the drums of tomorrow. Enjoy the 2 included ENV/LFO hybrids with lots of waveforms and the flexible modulation matrix with sources and targets all over the instrument.

Easy Access

The Kit Page provides the most important functions of the sound engine. Each of the eight kit channels provides a preset browser for the individual sound, controls for global pitch and decay, a modify knob and a profiled random function. Define a Mute group in oder to make a trigger on one engine choke the sound on another engine and use Choke Groups for open/closed hihat choking, but also for interesting synth sounds.

The Finalizer is a well balanced recipe of transient shaper, compressor, maximizer and saturation. Use it to bring out the Attacks of your drums and let the room breath.

Millions of Drum Sounds

Drum sound randomizers with profiles and the MakeKit button will keep on surprising you with new drum sounds and kits. Simple patterns turn into livid tracks with the Auto Fill feature, which inserts fills and parameter changes at certain song positions. The revolutionary Remix control creates crazy fills and covers lots of groove and fun.

The Pattern, Mute & Mapping section offers you extensive live-performance-oriented control over DrumComputer. Enjoy total freedom when it comes to assigning drum sounds to your keyboard and use Key zones for rolls, pitch, and modulations. 8 keys are reserved for the mute function, perfect for live-re-arranging of your beats. 16 pattern keys plus pattern chain allow for easy pattern editing and sequencing.

Sequencer

The 16-step/16-pattern sequencer is packed with features. While it provides Tempo, Direction and Step Length per track, its also capable of generating complete, complex patterns with more than just triggers, you have to try it to believe it.

Modulation sequencers for probability, rolls, step delay and also pitch- decay- and mod sequencers are included. And the best part: A complete MIDI drag and drop feature generates a MIDI file that contains everything from triggers, modulation sequences to auto fills and their related CCs.

7. Thesys

 
Thesys
 

The Art of Expression

Step Sequencers are an attractive concept. Machines making music. Who could better awake the genie in the machine than Thesys, the drawing board for step-based music creation?

A refined Randomizer is ready, whatever the current situation, to mutate existing material or to bring a new approach on the table.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Powerful 32-step MIDI Sequencer
  • Pitch Recorder
  • Choose and trigger Patterns per MIDI
  • Pattern sequencer for longer passages
  • Real-time Manipulation of the patterns per keyboard
  • Internal Synth
  • Vast Randomizer
  • Independent Loop lengths for all 5 sequencers
  • 18 sequencer lanes
  • MIDI Out and Drag ‘n’ Drop

Generate Pitch
The sequences can simply be painted, but with the random generator and the mutate-function you can easily generate patterns on the fly. Or record the pitch straight from your MIDI keyboard. The internal synthesiser saves you lengthy wiring sessions so you can start straightaway.

Start by setting the root note. When using the scales, no out-of-key note will slip through your fingers.

Below the pitch lane, you’ll see the Velocity (volume) and Gate Sequencer (controlling each note’s length). It’s in these top three sections that you’ll spend the most of your time, programming riffs and arpeggios, then assigning them to patterns.

Detailed Per-Step Control
The fourth step window is home to the Performance Sequencer, which is in fact 5 sequencers in one. Each row offers per-step control over Octave, Pitch Bend (with 20 pre-configured shapes), Chord (for polyphonic sequencing), Note Roll and sequence randomisation of a vast range of other cleverly implemented “humanising” elements to your patterns.

The final lane is the CC modulation section: each step accepts a value of 0 to 127, pumped out to a MIDI CC of your choosing. You can actually run several Modulation sequences simultaneously – up to eight – with all of them controlling different CCs.

Some Action in Real-Time
Up to 16 full patterns can be created within a single project. They can can be sequenced within the Pattern Sequencer (bottom right) or triggered via the Keyboard (set to “Pitch”), where the full length of the keyboard is used to transpose the current pattern. Switch to “Performance” and the keyboard is split into 3 zones: Pattern Select, Action Section and a Range for pitch transposing.

The “Action Section” offers 8 effects that can influence the patterns in real time. Choose from Looping, Half-Time, Re-Trigger or a Tempo Break.

Sequencing Magic
The lanes within a single pattern can be set to operate over different lengths. You could have pitches cycling over 16 steps, while velocity cycles over 15 steps and a modulation lane is used to sweep a synth filter over 29 steps.

The end results can yield some fascinating interactions between these different step-cycle lengths and an almost endless evolution of the pattern. If you thought step sequencers were only capable of creating repetitive fixed patterns, think again!

There’s More… Internal Synth for Idea Sketching on the fly & MIDI Export

Yes, Thesys also comes with its own synthesiser, it is perfectly capable and very useful if you just want to develop a few quick ideas.

In its VST2 and AAX versions, Thesys is fully MIDI-out capable. As an Audio Unit, it can be plugged as a MIDI FX to trigger other AUs. In the 1.5.1 Update, we implemented MIDI Export. Just drag and drop from within Thesys to your host or simply save the file to your desktop. Quick and easy!

Send melodies, controller data and program changes. Save patterns to a MIDI file.

No other MIDI sequencer offers you the ease and power of Thesys. It is 100% MIDI compliant – the ultimate MIDI sequencing solution. Use Thesys on your iPad to control multiple apps or external hard- and software!

Effectrix is our most popular product. Sigur Ros, Armin van Buuren, Diplo and many others value its inspiring aspects.

Most of all: it sounds good. Its effects algorithms excel the often limited creative potential of conventional multi-effects.

Thanks to Effectrix, nailing effects to the grid has become a standard production method in all the sound kitchens worldwide.

Detailed Parameters per Effect
Each effect has two modulation tracks. All parameters can be controlled and via LFO, envelope follower or external MIDI hardware and automated. Bottom line is: two parameters per effect can be automated pattern-based.

You can store up to 12 different sequences within a single Effectrix preset and flip between these via onscreen controls or external MIDI keyboard.

The Industry Standard for EDM and Glitch FX
Effectrix is the highly addictive games compendium for demanding sound fetishists. With its ultra-flexible operational concept, it’s your door into a wonderland of sound- and rhythm mutation.

Use Effectrix to refine your beats, enrich them with scratches or give them further complexity by looping, delaying, or reverberating phrases. Using the “Tonal Delay” you can create melodies out of any material. “Stutter” provides classical gating as well as sequenced panning and enveloping (working out transients).

Effectrix as a Versatile Performance Tool
Effectrix is easily synced with DAWs or any DJ Software, so you can enrich your Mix-out with the classics (Reverb, Delay, Filter…) or sprinkle some Glitch and stutter effects onto your material.

Patterns can also be assigned to any other MIDI input you care to mention and for those with some imagination, the possibilities of such a set-up are remarkably broad: the patterns could be assigned to be triggered by footswitch in performances to spice up the stage show.

Sounds & Presets

  • Play with grooves like never before. Put a reverb exactly onto the snare, introduce delay lines on certain places in your groove, create new kinds of sounds by re-looping looped or scratched stuff. Effectrix comes with an endless depth of possibilities
  • Tweak your beats, create new rhythms, reverse parts, stretch others, apply delay lines; even create melodies with atonal material. If you like, do it all at once. Have it your way!

9. Unique

 
Unique
 

The Name Says It All!

Unique specializes in state-of-the-art vowel sounds and mighty, mighty analogue sounds from the Golden Age of synthesizers. Her assertive sound should not be missing in any VST folder.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Sawtooth, Triple Saw, Pulse, Triple FM, Noise with tonal Filter, Sub Sine
  • 5 Filters with 5 Modulators each
  • Vowel Filter
  • Duophone Arpeggiator
  • Two Effect Sections
  • x/y Pad with Recording
  • MIDI Learn & Host Automation
  • 300 groovy presets by various artists

Dual-Oscillator with 5 Waveforms

You Won’t run out of Classic Analogue Sounds Anytime Soon

Unique is a well-crafted emulation of synthesisers from the golden age of analogue keyboard sounds. Some of the strings and piano sounds will bring back fond memories, while there’s plenty of depth and power to the basses.

Sound and functionality have been designed together with musicians to cover a wide range of sounds and ease of use. We took a close look at some old techniques to reinvent them for the current age. The user interface is simple but powerful.

And it’s a pretty versatile instrument. Once you’ve built your sound, there’s tons of sound polish in a juicy filter section and two chained multi effect units.

Activate Vowel Mode

The sound of Unique springs to life when it hits the filter section. Needless to say, analogue high-pass, low-pass and band-pass varieties are in place, along with a comb filter. But standards aside, the actual intention behind this project, a Vowel Filter, also became its outstanding feature. The Vowel Filter allows you to string together two or four vowel formants and play them back in a multitude of ways.

The internal controller section will bring in some much-needed dynamics. There’s a recordable XY field, a sequencer and it’s all very easy to manage with just a right-click on any control. User feedback range from “the Controllers section rocks!” to “the Controllers section just blows me away!”

It’s not a Software, it’s a Mindset!

Thanks to the unusual architecture, Unique always remained special down to the present day. The duo-phonic arpeggiator, polyphonic auto-panning per oscillator and the complex filter have what it takes to let your mix shine.

The modulators can be triggered in many different and “unique” ways: for example with the lowest note played, the first note played or even with the sequencer clock or the arpeggiator.

Yet another stunning feature: The internal LFOs have fade algorithms for rate and intensity; and we implemented a proper polyphonic portamento, too.
