Sinevibes has announced the availability of a new effect plugin for KORG’s plugin-capable prologue, minilogue xd and NTS-1 synthesizers. The Stator tape wobble simulator uses a creative approach to replicate the effects of speed fluctuations in tape machines, namely wow and flutter due to uneven electric motor rotation, as well as scrape flutter caused by the friction of the tape against the tape head.

The algorithm also models gentle phasing artifacts produced by crosstalk between the stereo channels. The processed sound has a beautiful stereo vibe and can go from gentle chorusing and coloration all the way to dramatic lo-fi pitch wobble.

Stator features

  • Studio-grade DSP algorithms, calibrated specifically for KORG’s hardware platform.
  • Individually chosen mapping for every plugin parameter, providing a very natural feel.
  • Built-in lag filters for noise-free, ultra-smooth parameter adjustment.
  • Optimized for maximum performance and stability on each individual device type.

Stator is available for purchase for $19 USD. The KORG FX bundle that includes all 17 current KORG effect plugins by Sinevibes is also available for $189 USD (-41% off total price of included plugins). Existing Sinevibes customers are also eligible for special upgrade pricing.
