Rhizomatic Software Synthesis has announced availability of the Plasmonic software synthesizer which combines the resonant depth of physical modeling with subtractive synthesis.

Rhizomatic Plasmonic

The synth was created by Brian Clevinger, developer of Native Instruments’ Absynth.

My goal is for Plasmonic to approach the depth and detail of an acoustic instrument, while making it easy to shape the sound into anything you want. Its deep modulation capability and MPE support make it a very playable and expressive instrument.

Plasmonic features

  • 4 audio sources:
    • 2 wavetable oscillators with dynamic wave transformations.
    • A special impulse generator for making the waveguide ring.
    • A noise generator with its own resonant lowpass filter.
  • 2 interacting filters:
    • A self-oscillating waveguide provides organic resonance.
    • A multimode self-oscillating ladder filter: LP, HP, BP, 1, 2 and 4 pole, formants filter and LP+HP in parallel and series.
    • Each filter can take any combination of audio sources.
    • Can be configured in series or parallel.
  • Polyphonic saturation.
  • Self-oscillating delay effects.
  • Deep, precise modulation system.
  • Multiple ADSR and LFOs with unique features.
  • 8 configurable control macros.
  • MPE support.
  • Resizable single-panel graphic interface.

Plasmonic is available in VST3 and AU plugin formats and as standalone software for Windows and Mac. It has an introductory price of $99 USD / 99 EUR through January 17th, 2021. The regular price is 149 USD/EUR.
