Perforator is a rhythmic gating audio effect that will creatively snip, cut, gap and filter incoming audio to create rhythmic patterns out of your pads, strings, drones or any other audio stream you feed through it.
By tuning the slice envelopes you can create anything from classic staccato “trance gate” sounds to emulations of sloppy pumping sidechain compression.
Two gating mechanisms can be dialled in: an AMP EG gate (the traditional way of gating) and a 12dB/Oct lowpass filter which will rapidly carve away high frequencies from your sound to effectively silence them.
Perforator requires iOS10 (iPad 4, iPhone 5S, iPod 6G and higher) and an AU compatible host app. Perforator has standalone functionality with basic IAA and Audiobus 3 support for demonstration purposes only. Using the AUv3 plugin is recommended.
* AU MIDI: both envelopes (L+R) can send their values out as MIDI CC messages to mimic ‘parameter lock’ messages in other plugins/apps. Note: this feature requires iOS11+ and a host compatible with AU MIDI from effects.
