Stillwell Audio releases Schwa Oligarc

Schwa @ Stillwell Audio has released Oligarc, a collection of four virtual analog FX, tied together by a modulation nerve center that converts the input audio into control signals that can be routed to most of the effect knobs.

Stillwell Audio Schwa Oligarc – The modulation nerve center

From the product page:

Oligarc can be an LFO-driven filter, an envelope-controlled phaser, a gate-triggered saturation effect, or anything else you can think up, including mad combinations of linked modulation of multiple effects at once.

Oligarc contains standalone versions of the Drive, Phaser, and Chorus effects, for more traditional usage — although there’s nothing traditional about these effects.

Oligarc is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) and costs $60 USD for a commercial license, or $40 USD for a REAPER-only, non-commercial version.

Visit Stillwell Audio for more information and a link to download an evaluation copy of Oligarc.

    Wow… The presets alone sound totally amazing! It looks like something that will get used a lot in the future.

    I didn’t think that it’s even possible that a “phaser plugin” creates a real new trademark sound. But phaser is just a small part of this bundle and the big Oligarc plugin has much more trademark sounds to offer. It’s definitely one of the best things I’ve seen in software so far and it’s ridiculously cheap too. I don’t know if I’m gonna be recruited by the KGB after purchase but I think the plugin would be worth it… :-)
