Glitchmachines has announced the release of Polygon, a new sampler plugin designed to facilitate the creation of stunning composite sound effects.
Co-developed by Ivo Ivanov and Thomas Hennebert, Polygon was conceived from the ground up with unconventional attributes and a fast, forward-thinking workflow.
Layering samples is only the beginning. Polygon’s unique granular mode will bend your samples into fresh material while its clean and logical interface, extensive modulation options and distinctive sonic fingerprint make it an invaluable tool for creative sound design.
At the heart of Polygon, you will find 4 Sampler modules featuring a granular mode and various play and loop modes with focus and loop range sliders. The modules are supported by 8 LFOs, 4 modulation envelopes with variable slopes, two multi-mode filters, three effects processors, a sub oscillator and various global parameters. All of Polygon’s components work in conjunction with its modulation matrix to allow you to achieve extremely dynamic results with relative ease.
Polygon’s sound set was compiled to facilitate the broadest possible range of sonic flexibility. Its core is driven by a 1.2 GB sample library comprised of brand new material and previously unreleased alternate edits from our entire range of sound ware products. To get you started, we included factory presets from Ivo Ivanov, Thomas Hennebert, Nicholas Yochum and Daed. Load any of your existing samples and listen as Polygon takes things in exciting new directions.
- 1.2 GB 24bit/96khz .wav sample library.
- 4 monophonic Sampler Modules with Granular Mode.
- Play & Loop modes with Range Sliders.
- 4 Mod Envelopes with Cycle Mode and variable slopes.
- 8 LFOs with Retrig, Sync and built-in Multipliers.
- 3 FX Processors: Metalizer, Stutter and FM Ring Mod.
- Sub Oscillator with Sine & Square wave with PWM.
- Comprehensive Modulation Matrix and Global RND Isolate Suite.
- Cross-platform compatibility (PC/Mac – VST/AU 32bit & 64bit).
Polygon is available to purchase for $49 USD.

Inear Display has released BowEcho, a modular delay effect plug-in for Windows.
BowEcho is a modular sound mangler based on 4 delay lines. It offers a large palette of sound design options thanks to 4 LFOs that can run at control or audio rate, 4 Mixers that can also act as gainers, basic filters, ringmodulators or stereo splitters, and the ability to route the output of each module the way you want. For example the LFOs can act as raw oscillators that can be used to ringmodulate the feedback path of a delay line. The delay times can be modulated over a wide range to generate noisy glitches or basic pitchshifting of the input.
BowEcho is a versatile delay plugin that can adapt to your sonic needs : use it as a simple flanger with only one delay and one LFO, or go crazy and route all modules in absurd ways to produce creepy screaming drones.
- 4 delay lines with optional tempo sync.
- 4 “mixers” that can also act as gainers, basic filters, ringmodulators and stereo splitters.
- 4 LFOs with optional tempo sync and the ability to run at audio rate.
- flexible modular routing.
- MIDI learn.
- MIDI program change support.
- Vector based resizable user interface.
- Cross-platform presets.
- 62 factory presets by Ivo Ivanov, Daed, and Apparition.
- Lifetime free updates for registered customers.
BowEcho for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available to purchase for the introductory price of 10 EUR until October 6th, 2013 (regular 20 EUR).

Inear Display has announced Tkapik, an amplitude controlled generative sampler plug-in.
Add it to a track, then load a sound file and Tkapik will trigger the sample with random settings every time an amplitude peak is detected in the input signal.
The sample can either be mixed with the input according to its amplitude envelope or completely replace the signal using the “solo” mode.
- Sampler supporting wav and aiff audio files.
- Sample triggering based on input signal amplitude.
- Combine the sample and the input signal using the envelope follower.
- Replace the input signal using the solo mode.
- Random start offset, loop points and optionally pitch on every trigger.
- User defined range for pitch random.
- Sample reverse.
- MIDI learn.
- Vector based resizable user interface (Windows and Os X only).
- Lifetime free updates for registered users.
Tkapik for Windows, Mac and Linux (VST/AU) is available to purchase for the introductory price of 10 EUR until August 3rd, 2013 (regular 20 EUR).

Inear Display has released Oxymore, a delay effect plug-in for Windows, Mac and Linux.
Oxymore comes loaded with a comprehensive selection of presets from Ivo Ivanov and Daed.
Oxymore is a delay plugin with stutter, lowpass filter and modulation effects thrown in the feedback signal path. It can be used to generate classic delay effects as well as wild signal mutations.
The input signal first goes through a delay line on each stereo channel, but instead of sending directly the output back into the delay line, the resulting signal is sent to a stutter processor, then to a lowpass filter, and finally to another delay line on the opposite channel which is modulated for creating chorus type effects. The output of the second delay line is then routed back to the first one on the original channel.
The Oxymore plug-in for Windows, Mac and Linux (VST/AU) is available to purchase for the introductory price of 10 EUR until May 7th, 2013 (regular 20 EUR).

Inear Display has released version 1.2 of Eurydice, a semi-modular sound mangling plugin focused on sound design.
The original Eurydice was based on two sound buffers, two multimode filters and two crushers. Starting with version 1.2, these blocks can now be combined in multiple ways thanks to the introduction of a patch panel that allows you to bend the signal path to your will.
Changes in Eurydice
- Rewritten from scratch.
- Linux native VST version (32 and 64 bit).
- Patch panel allowing free audio/modulation routing.
- 4 LFOs.
- 4 signal mixers.
- 2 signal multipliers.
- “x 100? rate mode for the LFOs.
- Master gain control.
- Filter morph.
- Independent mix control for the crushers.
- Buffer sync helper.
- Retrigger LFOs via MIDI.
- New preset system and format (presets made with previous versions are not compatible).
Eurydice (VST/AU) is available to purchase for 20 EUR until April 29th, 2013 (regular 30 EUR).
