Sinevibes has announced Malfunction II, a big update to its circuit-bent filter Audio Unit plugin for Mac. They say that Malfunction is a filter with intentionally broken connections and erroneous math that produces very special, hissy and screaming distortion. To tame this dramatic effect the plugin includes a low-pass pre-filter with a booster, as well as an output gate followed by a multi-mode filter.
A spokesperson told us, "Malfunction also has two highly versatile tempo-synchronized modulation generators routed into the circuit-bent and the output filters for intricate morphing and pulsations: they feature many different waveforms including our special 'broken triangle' and 'staircase'. Plus, these modulators also offer variable chaos control which gradually adds random, never-repeating accents on each individual waveform cycle."
CHANGES FOR v2.0.0:
• Completely new product, redesigned inside and out. • All-new hardware-accelerated user interface graphics. • Built-in gate to prevent endless self-oscillation. • Two freshly developed modulation generators with new "broken triangle" and "broken saw" waveforms. • Much improved computational efficiency with 2.5x reduced processor load.
• Unique "circuit-bent" filter algorithm producing thick, hissy and screaming distortion. • Multi-mode state-variable filter with 8 algorithms for detailed output spectrum shaping. • Two modulation generators with 10 waveforms and variable chaos. • Transport sync with support for tempo and time signature changes. • Color-coded controls with lightly animated transitions. • Fully hardware-accelerated rendering with support for Retina screen resolution.
Pricing and Availability: Malfunction II is now available for $29 as an Audio Unit plugin for macOS 10.6 or later (32/64 bit).
