The Sound Of Friction


Xoxos have released Friction VST. They consider it to be a special interest instrument, probably more useful for sound effects than music. A spokesperson told us, “If you're looking for different approaches to synthesis, this may be something you'll enjoy.� Friction VSTi combines a 2nd order mass-spring with a friction algorithm and two waveguide resonances. It is capable of elementary emulations of sounds produced by tangent surfaces, such as squeaky hinges and squealing tires.
This instrument is proposed for experimental music and low-budget foley sfx.
Pricing and Availability:
Friction is priced at $15, or $10 for current xoxos customers. The demo version removes some parameters. More information and demo:
