Puremagnetik has released two free plug-ins. They tell us that Expanse and Driftmaker are inspired by tape, microsound and experimental music. Here's a description in the company's own words...
Expanse - Texture Generator
Expanse is a texture generator that can be spectrally blurred, pitched, and filtered. Expanse creates filtered noise and layers a pitch shifted replica on top of itself. The processed layer undergoes spectral blurring and freezing to create interweaving layers of sound. Expanse is a simple yet versatile tool that can produce sweeping backdrops, resonating low drones and many other textural canvases.
Driftmaker - Delay Disintegration Device
Driftmaker parses incoming audio to a user defined buffer. It then lifts segments from the recorded material, granularly time-stretches segments, all the while adding analog deterioration effects to the signal. Depending on what you feed it, Driftmaker is capable of creating everything from glitchy echoes to long, drawn-out ambiences.
