Effect plug-in that turns any sound into melodic material is now available 25/04/12
Sinevibes has announced the release of Reactive, its new AudioUnit effect plug-in that turns any sound into melodic material as previewed a couple of weeks back.
Reactive detects the input signal's dynamic envelope, and converts it into pitch information via an eight-note keyboard matrix. The pitch and envelope are then simultaneously used to drive three distinct synthesizer engines featuring waveshape modeling, phase modulation, and subtractive with ring modulation. Sinevibes says that all this is easily accessible via a simple color-coded interface, and lets Reactive instantly create amazing new sounds – from synth and bass lines, pulsating drones, and stepped pitch glides, to glitches, blips, wobbles, and noises – which are all lively reacting to the input.
Sinevibes says that Reactive is great for:
Using any sound's dynamics to generate melodies, strums and arpeggios.
Transforming rhythm and percussion parts into synth and bass lines.
Creating unique instruments and effects in realtime out of vocal beat-boxing or even simple microphone tapping.
Reactive works with Logic, GarageBand, Live, Maschine, Studio One, ReNoise, Reaper, Bidule and other Mac software that supports AudioUnit effect plugins. It comes in 32/64 bit versions for both Intel and PPC, and requires OS X version 10.5 or later.

Reactive is available immediately for $29.
