Hypercyclic is a free LFO-driven MIDI arpeggiator, gate effect and step sequencer for mangling MIDI input chords.
Supported platforms are Windows (standalone, vst), Mac (standalone, vst, au) and Linux (standalone, vst).
Two tempo-synced LFOs can be used to modulate various parameters to create interesting rhythmic effects and chord variations. A unique feature is the ability to modulate the sequencer step size itself, which is useful for creating glitchy stuttering effects.
The sweetspot for hypercyclic is the narrow border between chaos and regularity. Or, in other words, how to induce a certain pleasant randomness, yet forcing everything to align again on the bar or beat boundaries.
The product is further complemented by a groove function for playing slightly off the beat. The groove parameters can also be modulated over time by the LFOs, adding to the rhythmic variation.
The main use for hypercyclic is to generate midi that can be recorded and/or sent to other plugins. However it also features a simple built-in synth for testing purposes.
NorthPole is a free effects plug in for AudioUnit compatible applications on the Macintosh. It adds a fully programmable virtual analog synthesizer filter with resonance, envelope follower and an integrated post-filter digital delay to your audio production environment.
This free plug in equips your AudioUnit environment with a fully programmable resonant filter. In short, you can send any of your audio tracks through this ‘virtual analog’ effects device to either create spezial effects or to simulate the behaviour of an analog 4-pole synthesizer filter.
New in 1.01: Tap tempo
Repeatedly clicking on the “Dly Time” text area directly above the delay time slider sets the delay time to the time interval between the clicks. This “tap tempo” feature comes in handy when adjusting the tempo of the delay.
New in 1.02: True stereo processing
NorthPole is now using a true stereo filtering algorithm
24dB/Octave (4 pole)
variable Cutoff + Resonance
Envelope Follower with adjustable sensitivity
Envelope attack/release times
