Sinevibes has announced Strobe, a new AudioUnit effect plug-in for rhythmic audio gating. At its core is a sequencer that runs in perfectly precise sync with your DAW and lets you mute individual notes and sounds in a looped fashion. Sinevibes says that, thanks to variable timing, swing and gate shape Strobe can easily match the feel of any melodic or rhythmic part. They tell us that it's a simple yet versatile effect that is essential in all styles of music - and it has an incredibly fun-to-use interface.
Some of the Strobe applications are:
Add rhythmic gate effects onto synth, bass and pad sounds.
Create classic effects like tremolo and pumping.
Apply beat slicing onto rhythmic parts.
Pricing and Availability:
Strobe is immediately available as a 32/64-bit AudioUnit plugin for OS X Leopard, Snow Leopard or Lion. It normally costs $19 but can be purchased with a 30% holiday discount until 1st January. More information:
