Full Bucket Music has released an update to its Frequency Shifter audio plugin for Windows and Mac.

Version 2.0.0 features a new resizable user interface and an LFO Sync to Host parameter. The plugin now supports VST3 and the new CLAP plugin format, and it comes with a Universal Binary 2 build for both Intel and ARM Macs. The update also fixes some minor bugs.

The Frequency Shifter shifts the spectrum of the input signal up or down along the frequency axis. This effect is also know as “Bode Frequency Shifting” or “Single Sideband Modulation”; IMHO one of the most underrated and ignored effects ever.

Do not confuse the Frequency Shifter with a pitch shifter! A pitch shifter multiplies all frequencies of the input signal by a constant factor while a frequency shifter adds (or subtracts) a constant amount of Hertz to (or from) those frequencies. Thus, the harmonic structure of the input signal will not be preserved in the modulated signal, resulting in a raw, inharmonic, metallic, you-name-it sound the more you apply the effect. Even more, if you mix a slightly shifted signal with the original input signal you will get some uncommon phasing sound.

Frequency Shifter features

  • Frequency shifting up to ±5000 Hz.
  • Optional LFO with 5 waveforms and Sync to Host option.
  • 4 frequency ranges, 3 mix modes.
  • Linked or individual control for both stereo channels.
  • Resizable user interface.

The plugin is free to download in VST/VST3, AU and CLAP formats.
