Puremagnetik has announced the release of two free audio effect plugins inspired by tape, microsound and experimental music.

Expanse is a texture generator that can be spectrally blurred, pitched, and filtered.

Puremagnetik Expanse

Expanse creates filtered noise and layers a pitch shifted replica on top of itself. The processed layer undergoes spectral blurring and freezing to create interweaving layers of sound.

Inspired by Larum’s Into a Bright Land, Expanse is a noise and drone generator that can be spectrally blurred, pitched, and filtered. It is a simple yet versatile tool that can produce sweeping backdrops, resonating low drones and many other textural canvases.

Drifmaker parses incoming audio to a user defined buffer. It then lifts segments from the recorded material, granularly time-stretches segments, all the while adding analog deterioration effects to the signal.

Puremagnetik Driftmaker

Depending on what you feed it, Driftmaker is capable of creating everything from glitchy echoes to long, drawn-out ambiences.

Driftmaker is a delay disintegration device that parses incoming audio, recalls certain parts and adds analog deterioration to the signal. It was designed to encapsulate the character of BlankFor.ms’s debut on Puremagnetik – Works for Tape and Piano. All presets were developed by BlankFor.ms.

The plugins are available for download in 64-bit VST and AU formats.
