Runagate releases Turducken and Re-Coder (alpha)
Runagate has released alpha versions of Turducken and Re-Coder, two freeware VST effect plug-ins made with SynthEdit.
Turducken is an FSU effect the basis of which is two types of Phase Modulation much like is used in an FM synth. Insert audio; output madness. Within Turducken is a pitch tracker and an LFO, both of which modulate many things, including a couple oscillators (used for phase modulation and ring modulation) as well as some secret ingredients from an old Cajun recipe.
Re-Coder is a Freeware VST effect based on a vocoder, the carrier of which is a four operator FM synth with a flanger, delay & some unusual modulation abilities. Ops 2 & 4 are gated by an envelope follower and a pitch follower, which also modulate the delay and flanger.
Both plug-ins are available for Windows PC (remember they’re v0.1 alpha, so they might be buggy).
