Dronebox v2
Polycomb

Oli Larkin has released Dronebox (version 2) and Polycomb.

Dronebox is a VST effect that can turn your guitar into a sitar. It is a bank of six resonant, tunable comb filters with extensive modulation options. It can be used to create lush evolving drones or to add resonance to drums or whatever source material you wish to process.

PolyComb is a polyponic comb filter VST effect. It is similar to Dronebox but the comb filters are controled by polyphonic midi input. This allows rapid chord changes with up to 32 note polyphony.

Oli Larkin now offers all the commercial plug-ins (Spacestation, Endless Phaser, Endless Flanger, Dronebox and Polycomb) in a bundle for the reduced price of £40.

Check the website for more information and to download demos.
