Audio Damage has released version 2 of Replicant, adding a Stutter effect to the buffer effect plugin for Windows and Mac.

One of our all-stars gets the full upgrade treatment.

Replicant, arguably the plug-in that most defines Audio Damage, gets a complete makeover for its 10th birthday, with an all-new vector-based resizable GUI (easy on the eyes), VST3 and AAX versions (with an iOS AUv3 coming next week), and a new effect, Stutter, which further subdivides the loops.

Audio Damage Replicant 2

Replicant 2 features

  • Tempo-based delay and looping effects, from 1/128th note to an entire measure.
  • Stutter adds further subdivisions, down to a 1/16384th note (otherwise known as a “tone”.)
  • Seven independant randomization controls, for subtle changes or extreme aleatoric madness, including a global randomize button.
  • Our unique “Hold” feature, to store a random sequence you like.
  • Resonant low-pass and high-pass filters that change over time.
  • Pan position that changes over time.
  • Two separate direction modes, for entire events or individual repeats, with randomization.
  • MIDI Note or front panel triggering of loop events for live playing of effects.

Replicant 2 is available for $49 USD, with an upgrade price of $10 USD for Replicant owners.

Also updated is Phosphor, that additive synthesizer that is modeled on the alphaSyntauri by Syntauri.

Along with that, we’ve released Phosphor 2, a top-to-bottom reworking of our painstaking clone of the alphaSyntauri, the original computer-based synthesizer.

Phosphor 2 maintains Phosphor’s original topology, and adds completely redesigned oscillators, a new UI, and AAX and VST3 versions, with iOS standalone and AUv3 also coming next week.

Audio Damage Phosphor 2

Phosphor 2 features

  • Two complete oscillator/envelope sections modeled on the original topology of the alphaSyntauri.
  • Each set of partials can run in “lo-fi” mode, emulating the gritty digital voicing of original, or in a modern mode for alias-free sines.
  • The noise can be either “lo-fi” digital shift-register noise per the original, or modern white noise.
  • Two complete delay sections with LP/HP filtering and cross-feedback.
  • Two tempo-syncable LFOs with multiple modulation destinations.
  • A large complement of presets included that show off the extensive sound generating capabilities of Phosphor, including some famous alphaSyntauri presets directly ported from the original.

Phosphor 2 is $59 USD, also with an upgrade price of $10 USD for owners of the original Phosphor.
