Diversion features

  • Sound generation – 4 oscillators with a wide range of different waveforms with a near to zero level of aliasing. Oscillators generate sounds in real-time with algorithms for optimal sound quality at high frequencies. All waveforms have two independent parameters X and Y allowing you to adjust the timbre. Includes FM, RM, wave shaping and filtering.
  • Bus processors – Two bus processors each featuring a stereo multi-filter, distortion and LO-FI section.
  • Effects – Two flexible FX lines, separate processing of each bus processor’s output. Up to 8 effect instances can be stacked in one FX line.
  • Oversampling – up to 8X oversampling within a whole processing path, excluding FX section. Models of all processing modules in Diversion are designed using at least 2X oversampling.
  • Modulation – Many parameters can be modulated by 4 LFOs, 4 ADSR Envelopes, 4 MSEGs and one XY-controller, called Master Morph. Automation and MIDI controllers are supported.
  • Arpeggiator and Trance Gate – 32-step Arpeggiator / Sequencer and a 16-step Trance Gate module.

Diversion is currently available to purchase as a VST instrument plugin for Windows (Mac and x64 version under development), at the introductory price of $150 USD excl. VAT (regular $200 USD). A free demo version is available. Demo limitations: noise sample is played every 90 seconds.

It looks capable enough, but does it have anything to really set it apart from the rest of the pack?


Features look like it’s competing with something like Zebra, although that one is more flexible with its routing.
Really like the GUI on Diversion though, clean and compact. The looks aren’t bad either, reminds me of some of the newer Reaktor ensembles.
The audio demo sounds real nice. Hope to find some time to take the demo version for a spin.


This VSTi is the MOST intensive CPU eater i’ve ever encountered! On dual core Intel E8400, @24bit/88kHz, some presets easily eat 50%!! Crazy.

Sadly, the sound doesn’t match the ludicrous power consumption. It’s only mediocre, with a lot of brittleness all across the spectrum. Thin and artificial. GUI is pretty and very friendly, but with this unoptimized performance I don’t see who will find it useful next to excellent Sylenth1 or new Z3TA+ 2.
