kiloHearts has announced the release of Disperser, a phase rotator effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
Disperser is a phase rotator that uses all-pass filters to add different delay to different frequencies. This makes for novel sounds and is of great value to any sound designer. Disperser can be used as a transient shaper, smearing the frequencies of sharp transients over time. It can also give a nice “flavor” to punchy basslines.
Another useful feature of the Disperser is that it can decrease the “crest factor” of a signal, meaning that it will lower the peaks but keep the perceived volume the same. In essence giving you more headroom for free.
The user interface is exceptionally easy to use with only three controls that gives the sound designer maximum control of the output. Not to mention it looks absolutely stunning.
Like all kiloHearts’ products, focus lies on ease of use while providing powerful functionality at a low price point. Disperser’s simple user interface puts all controls at the fingertips of the user, making it easy to quickly find the sound you want. “A lot of plugins these days try to compete with feature lists, often forgetting that they’re part of a creative process”, says Per Svanberg, developer and co-founder. “We want to isolate the most important parts, and make them as quickly and easily accessible as possible.”
Disperser for Windows and Mac (32/64-bit, VST/AU) is available to purchase for 15 EUR / $19 USD.

“What Faturator brings to the table is a really fast way of tuning the character of a sound, bringing out more crisp and clarity, focusing on a specific tone or, for that matter, just totally destroying it with distortion”, says Anders Stenberg, CTO. “Considering the positive response we have gotten about the VST/AU versions of Faturator it was really a no-brainer to make it available as a Rack Extension as well”
Faturator is a saturation/distortion unit, providing effects ranging from subtle warm saturation to harsh digital fuzz. On top of this, included coloring and stereo widening allows for changing the character of the sound in a quick and easy way. Contrary to many distortion effects, Faturator will preserve the dynamics of your sound and apply its effects on it regardless of input gain.

Minor bug fixes.
Changes in Faturator v1.001
Fixed a problem with parameter display in FL Studio.
Fixed a problem where Faturator would crash if used in conjunction with other plugins using Symbiosis AU/VST (e.g. LFOTool).
Fixed a problem where wrong plugin delay would be reported to Logic, leading to incorrect delay compensation.
Fixed a number of problems with UI updates, leading to better performance and stability.
Made sliders & knobs draggable both horizontally and vertically.
kiloHearts has also announced new free preset pack for kHs ONE.
A new free preset pack with 100 new presets provided by electro house producers DivKid is now available! These well categorized presets work well on their own, but also provide a great starting point for experimenting with new sounds.

kiloHearts has released its Faturator effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
Grit, oomph, fatness, raw, color, or just that certain something. Sometimes your sounds need a shovel of dirt. Faturator is standing ready to tear whatever you throw at it apart violently, and then gently (but firmly) put it back together fatter and rawer than ever.
Faturator can do everything from adding subtle and warm gritty character to your sounds to slam them into a wall of heavy saturation and digital fuzz. Contrary to many distortion effects, Faturator will preserve the dynamics of your sound and work its wonders on it regardless of input gain.
Turn your leads into screaming monsters, or add some extra fatness to your basses.
The Faturator plugin (VST/AU) is available to purchase for 15 EUR.
