Glitchmachines has released an update to the Cataract creative sample manipulation plugin, a segment multiplexer geared toward electronic music production and experimental sound design.

Cataract 2 comes with a redesigned interface and a new FX module with a dedicated sequencer.

Cataract features an arsenal of sample scanners with various integrated effects and a global parameter sequencer that allows you to step sequence nearly every parameter of the plugin. Version 2.0 gives Cataract a total overhaul, integrating countless refinements while significantly streamlining the redesigned interface and adding exciting new features such as the FX module and its dedicated sequencer.

With its two dual Sample Scanners, X-MOD Morpher, Global Parameter Sequencer, Scan Sequencers, Effects Sequencers, Effects & Dynamics Processors, LFOs, Global Randomizer, specially curated Factory Sample Bank and 100 Factory Presets, Cataract 2.0 constructs architecturally complex patterns ranging from nuanced percussive articulations to intricate particle sound effects and all out generative hyper glitch chaos.

Cataract 2 is available in VST3 and AU formats for Windows and Mac, priced $79 USD at the Glitchmachines store and from distributor Plugin Boutique. Owners of the previous version can upgrade to Cataract 2 for $30 USD.

Note that the Cataract 2.0 factory sample library is completely different from the previous version, and both plugins can coexist on your system.
