Sinevibes has introduced a cool new delay effect called Droplet that produces a delay effect similar to the sound of falling rain, or other small objects on a surface. This effect is produced by chaining together 24 delay lines and randomizing the output order of them. The delay chain then utilizes a feature called variable frequency damping which applies filters to the outgoing delay lines at random. Time modulation is also applied and then the phase routing is switched; this along with randomized stereo panning creates quite the beautiful entropy. Here’s what the developers had to say about it, “Since the parameters are randomized each time a Droplet instance is created, just as any natural process it will never sound exactly the same – even the same preset on two different tracks in the same project will sound different.” Below is the full list of features.
Chain of feedback delay lines with 24 “drops” and high-quality spline interpolation.
Variable delay time and stereo pan randomization per drop.
Feedback damping filter with low-pass and high-pass modes.
Sine oscillator for delay time modulation with unique phase-flipped routing.
Color-coded graphics with subtle animations.
Fully hardware-accelerated rendering with support for retina screen resolution.
Works with any application that supports Audio Unit effect plugins.
Supports OS X 10.6 or later running on 32 or 64 bit Intel Macs.
Droplet is available now for purchase for $29 on the Sinevibes website. Enjoy the video below to witness the plugin’s effect!
