Devious Machines has released an update to its Texture plugin which lets you enhance, shape and transform your sounds with over 340 inspirational textures.

Devious Machines Texture sample import

Version 1.5 includes the much requested option to import your own samples.

You can add loops, play them back using Texture’s granular synth, but also trigger them to play at regular intervals or trigger them from incoming audio. You can also now disable the envelope follower, which can be useful if you’re triggering replacement drums, or just want continuous audio output from texture to process.

Drawing from a library of over 300 acoustic and electronic sources, Texture synthesises new layers which track the dynamics of your sound. Want to “glue” your hi-hats transients by adding dynamic filtered noise? Or how about beefing up that kick drum by automatically adding a low sine wave? Texture makes this is easy, intuitive and fast.

But its uses don’t stop at mix enhancement. Experimental musicians and sound designers will find a plethora of leftfield sound at their fingertips. How about having bubbling water track a keyboard part, or adding ferocious fire crackle to the roar of a monster? Texture makes all this and more possible.
