Sinevibes has announced the release of a non-linear audio reverser effect plugin that packs a unique ability to warp the playback speed via multiple different curves.

Skew is designed to create effects such as tape rewind, pitch slides, glitching, scratching, and more.

Skew is a non-linear audio reverser. Perfectly synchronized to the host transport, it is constantly recording the incoming audio into a buffer – and playing it back in reversed chunks. The big trick in this algorithm is that it’s able to warp its playback speed via a selection of non-linear curves, thus bending the pitch in various ways.

With each parameter having an extremely wide range of adjustment, Skew can be used to create multiple rhythmically-precise effects such as reversing, tape rewind, pitch slides, detune, glitching, and scratching. Thanks to its fine calibration, responsiveness, and DJ-style crossfade control, Skew can easily be automated or manipulated in real-time to add exciting musical complexity and create cool buildups, breaks, and transitions.

Available in VST3, AU and AAX plugin forats, Skew for Windows and Mac is priced $29 USD at the Sinevibes store and from Plugin Boutique.
