Prodyon Asteroid offers effects in Kaoss pad style 03/12/07
Prodyon has released Asteroid, a new DJ effects VST plug-in for Windows, similar to the Korg Kaoss Pad.
With Asteroid you control a circle on an X/Y-pad that is linked to the various effects. It features five different algorithms that are optimized for live usage. The effects can be switched using the mouse or a MIDI keyboard. Almost all parameters are fully automatable, including realtime click/pop-free effects switching. It is possible to freely route the circle's X and Y axis to various targets, such as Cutoff, Dry/Wet-Mix or Quantizing. Features:
5 built-in effects: two filters, slicer, combfilter and a multistage phaser.
16-voice polyphonic filter for vocoder-like effects.
Temposynced lofi-slicer with six operating modes.
Combfilter with variable damping and inversed feedback option.
Phaser with up to 32 stages.
Separate echo/delay with spreading for each effect.
Global pad-smoothing and variable quantization.
Effects-release option for smooth fades.
"kill"-button for immediate release/feedback reset.
