Martinic has announced an update to its virtual effect plugin that precisely recreates the scanner-vibrato effect a legendary tonewheel organ.

Version 1.1.0 of Scanner Vibrato features Martinic’s trademarked ACE Modelling technique, a completely new framework, native M1 support for Mac users, and scalable GUI graphics for Windows users.

Martinic Scanner Vibrato is modelled closely on the original scanner-vibrato, so it offers the same features (and flaws), perfectly preserving the character of the original effect. However, Scanner Vibrato is more flexible; you can adjust the rate, depth, and even stereo width. And best of all, you can apply Scanner Vibrato not only to organ sounds, but also to guitar, synthesizer, or whatever sound you like.

Changes in Scanner Vibrato v1.1.0

  • Restyled FX view.
  • Added toolbar, settings view.
  • Added HDPI (Retina) support.
  • Added native Apple M1 support.
  • Added improved model.

  • Made 32-bit VST2 optional in installer.
  • Added custom GUI scaling options to Windows installer.
  • Added Retina support to macOS installer.

Scanner Vibrato for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is priced $39 USD and also available as part of the Retro Pack, a collection of Martinic’s grooviest instruments and effects with a bundle discount.
