Oli Larkin releases Endless Series plug-ins

Oli Larkin Endless Series

Oli Larkin has released the Endless Series, four effect plugins based on an auditory illusion known as “Circular Pitch” or more commonly the “Shepard Tone/Scale” after Roger N. Shepard who discovered it in the 1960s.

Endless Series features

  • Specify glissando or chromatic (stepped) mode
  • Change the rate and direction of the tone/effect
  • Adjust the base-pitch of the tone/effect
  • Mix between two different amplitude envelopes
  • Spread the partials across the stereo image
  • Presets and manual included

Endless Tone can be used to synthesize classic Shepard/Risset tones. It can also be used as a ring modulator either using an internal sine wave or the audio input for the carrier signal.

Endless Flanger is a circular pitch (barber-pole) flanger – instead of flanging up and down the frequency spectrum, it appears to continuously flange in one direction.

Endless Phaser works in the same way but rather than using delay lines, it uses filters to produce its effect.

Endless Shifter provides a further variation by using pitch shifting to impose the illusion of circular pitch on the source material.

The Endless Series is available for Windows VST/RTAS and Mac VST/AU/RTAS UB and costs £15 GBP.

The plug-ins require Pluggo Runtime 3.61 or higher to run.

Dronebox v2

Oli Larkin has updated both Dronebox and Polycomb.

Dronebox is a VST effect that can turn your guitar into a sitar. It is a bank of six resonant, tunable comb filters with extensive modulation options. It can be used to create lush evolving drones or to add resonance to drums or whatever source material you wish to process.
Version 2 has a stunning new GUI, enhanced modulation and excitation possibilities plus a reverb effect. It also has a built in help section, manual and presets.

Updates in v2.1

  • Peak meters now post-fader
  • Better tool tips response
  • LFOs sync correctly to host tempo
  • Less Orange
Polycomb

PolyComb is a polyponic comb filter VST effect. It is similar to Dronebox but the comb filters are controled by polyphonic midi input. This allows rapid chord changes with up to 32 note polyphony.

Updates in v1.1

  • LFOs sync correctly to host tempo
  • Less Orange
  • Manual now available
