Generate Melodies From Any Sound

Sinevibes announces its upcoming Reactive synthesizer      12/04/12

Generate Melodies From Any Sound

Sinevibes has been in touch to tell us about their upcoming AudioUnit plugin, Reactive, developed to turn any audio into melodic material. Unlike conventional keyboard-controlled synthesizers, Reactive detects the input signal's dynamic envelope and transforms it into pitch information via a note matrix that has eight switchable patterns. The envelope and pitch are then used to drive three distinct synthesizer engines – waveshape modeling, phase modulation, and subtractive with ring modulation – allowing you to come up with interesting motion sounds, from pulsating drones and melodic strums to fat basses and weird glitch lines. Sinevibes tell us that, like all their products, Reactive will be simple and fun to use, with a color-coded interface and fast response.
What can it do?
  • Use any sound source's dynamics to generate new melodies.
  • Instantly transform vocal beat-boxing or simple microphone tapping into bass and synth lines, glitches, and noises.
  • Turn rhythmic audio material into interesting strumming or arpeggiating synthesizer sounds.
Pricing and Availability:
Reactive will be available late April or early May 2012, and can be pre-ordered now for $19 (normal price: $29). Customers who purchase the Sinevibes Complete AudioUnit pack starting from today will receive Reactive free of charge. Reactive will come as a 32/64 bit AudioUnit plugin for OS X 10.5 or later.
