Sinevibes has announced its new AudioUnit plugin, Hexonator, described as a unique spectral effect that creates organic chord progressions, tasty melodic textures, or ambient drones out of almost anything.
Hexonator is built upon six melodically tuned resonators which isolate and emphasise matching frequency components in the incoming signal. Sinevibes says that, with its chord sequencer, it makes it possible to "play" these resonators musically, producing fresh synthetic sounds that are full of life and character. Hexonator also includes a multi-mode filter for final shaping, and everything can be animated using two powerful modulators with multiple waveforms and adjustable chaos.
A spokesperson told us, "Just like with all Sinevibes products, Hexonator offers an incredibly simple, lightweight yet attractive user interface. It is comprised of high-contrast, colour-coded shapes for instantly intuitive operation. There are clever animations and transitions built it which makes the whole experience even more fun and engaging."
• Six melodically tuned resonators with positive/negative feedback, adjustable bandwidth.
• Chord sequencer with up to 32 steps, variable timing, shuffle and glide.
• Multi-mode filter: low-pass, band-pass, and high-pass at -12 dB and -24 dB per octave.
