Minimal Audio has announced an update to its cutting-edge hybrid distortion effect plugin featuring groundbreaking effects, endless modulation, and an all-around musical mindset.

Version 2.0 of Rift introduces an all-new experience with dark mode and multiband features.

At Rift’s core is a unique multipolar distortion engine with 30 custom algorithms spanning both classic and never before heard processors. These effects are blended in the novel waveform engine, giving you precise control over how the two algorithms are combined and clear visual feedback over what is happening. Expand your sounds even further with a flexible feedback processor, custom morphing filters, and our curve modulation system.

Changes in Rift 2.0

  • Flexible Multi-Band Effects: Send any combination of distortion, feedback, and filtering through the multi-band crossover to keep the effect exactly where you want.
  • Dark & Light Mode: Rift’s interface can now switch between a beautiful new Dark Mode and a refined Light Mode.
  • Apple Silicon support.
  • CPU optimization on all platforms.

Rift 2.0 for Windows and Mac (VST/VST3, AU and AAX) is on sale at Minimal Audio and from Plugin Boutique for an introduction price of $79 USD instead of $129 USD. Owners of Rift can upgrade for free.
