Sinevibes has announced the availability of Stator tape wobble simulator, a new effect plugin for KORG plugin-capable synthesizers. They say that it offers 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 is also said to model gentle phasing artifacts produced by crosstalk between the stereo channels. A spokesperson told us, "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."
- 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.
