Cycling ?74 today announced the release of Mode for Windows. This
popular package of native audio processing plug-ins is now available on
Windows XP for host applications supporting the VST and RTAS formats. The
package features three instruments and two effects units that integrate
functions and performance controls typically found in rack-mount and
workstation hardware. An additional 18 plug-in "submodules" extend the
package with creative effects, parameter modulators and CPU-saving
The MODE collection's featured plug-ins include:
BANG: A single-voice percussion module that combines sample playback, FM
synthesis, and analog modeling drum synthesis for sounds ranging from simple
emulation to outrageous percussive hybrids.
MONO: A monophonic synthesizer that combines the ease of use and warm filter
effects of an analog synthesizer with the control and clarity of an FM
engine, for an instrument that is equally at home in the studio or on stage.
POLY: A versatile polyphonic synthesizer loosely based on classic DCO
synths. POLY uses waveforms sampled from some of the most popular vintage
digital and analog instruments and features a unique polyphonic arpeggiator.
SPIN: A rhythm-based effects processor that features a state-variable
filter, panning effects, rhythmic gating, delay, distortion and
bit-reduction for sounds that range from subtle modification to extreme
WASH: A unique new effects processor built around an interconnected network
of 6 fully controllable recirculating delay lines. More than a mere effect,
WASH is an instrument in its own right-capable of anything from simple
multi-tap delay textures to hour-long walls of morphing feedback.
The additional 18 "submodule" plug-ins take the effects, performance
controls and instrument sections of the five featured devices and provide
them as stand-alone plug-ins. This allows for mix-and-match sound creation,
modulation, filtering and effects similar to modular synthesis environments.

MODE is now available for a MSRP of $99 at Cycling
