Sinevibes has announced the release of a granular cloud reverb effect plugin for Korg’s prologue, minilogue xd and NTS-1 synthesizers. Albedo is technically the very first custom reverb plugin ever released on this platform, and it brings unique new possibilities for sound design and live performance.

Albedo continuously records audio into a buffer, and at the same time plays up to 16 separate grains from it – with each grain having its own randomized size and position within the buffer.

Together with feedback and additional psychoacoustic stereo widening, this creates a lush “cloud of sound” reverb effect. It is also possible to stop overwriting the buffer and thus “freeze” this cloud, allowing to overlay another sound as the granular cloud keeps playing indefinitely.

Albedo is available for $19 USD. The plugin comes in three formats for Korg prologue, minilogue xd and NTS-1 synthesizers, and has been fully tested on all these devices.
