Sinevibes has announced a new oscillator plugin for Korg’s multi engine. Bent implements a novel synthesis method called “bent-wave frequency modulation”, developed by Sinevibes.

Sinevibes Bent for Korg multi engine

Bent combines a classic modulator-carrier pair of sine oscillators with a unique “bender” module which changes the modulator signal’s curvature, phase, and time symmetry. Despite the “FM” part, bent-wave FM produces sounds more akin to a mix of two synchronized and filtered analog oscillators – with smooth, elastic waveform morphing.

Due to its specific density and rounded curvature, Bent also forms a perfect symbiosis with Korg’s resonant low-pass filter, creating sounds with incredible plasticity.

Bent features

  • Two sine oscillators with unique module that “bends” curvature, phase, and time symmetry before the frequency modulation stage.
  • Five different output waveforms with variable shape and harmonic balance.
  • Built-in lag filters for noise-free, ultra-smooth parameter adjustment and modulation.
  • Built-in LFO with widely adjustable frequency (0.1 to 10 Hz).
  • Built-in envelope generator with widely adjustable attack and decay times (1 ms to 10 s).

Bent for Korg multi engine costs $29 USD. It comes with an in-depth PDF user manual and 16 preset patches for the Korg prologue 8 and 16, and minilogue xd.

It is also available as a bundle with the previously released Turbo variable waveshaping oscillator, priced at $49 USD (15% discount).
