Sinevibes has introduced Reactive, its upcoming AudioUnit plugin developed to turn any audio into melodic material.
Unlike conventional keyboard-controlled synthesizers, Reactive detects the input signal’s dynamic envelope and transforms it into pitch information via a note matrix that has eight switchable patterns. The envelope and pitch are then used to drive three distinct synthesizer engines – waveshape modeling, phase modulation, and subtractive with ring modulation – allowing you to come up with interesting motion sounds, from pulsating drones and melodic strums to fat basses and weird glitch lines. Like all Sinevibes products, Reactive will be simple and fun to use, with a color-coded interface and fast response.
- Use any sound source’s dynamics to generate new melodies.
- Instantly transform vocal beat-boxing or simple microphone tapping into bass and synth lines, glitches, and noises.
- Turn rhythmic audio material into interesting strumming or arpeggiating synthesizer sounds.
Reactive will be available late April or early May 2012, and can be pre-ordered now for $19 USD (regular $29 USD). Customers who purchase the Sinevibes Complete AudioUnit pack starting from today will receive Reactive free of charge. Reactive will come as a 32/64 bit AudioUnit plugin for OS X 10.5 or later.
