Sinevibes has released Odds which they describe as a "stochastic control synthesis" plugin for KORG synthesizers. Here's the details in their own words...
Odds is an all-new stochastic control synthesis plugin for KORG prologue, minilogue xd and NTS-1 synthesizers. It starts with a hybrid engine that features dual oscillators with a wide variety of sources – including virtual analog, FM, phase distortion, waveshaping, ring modulation, cross modulation, and lo-fi – all of them running at double the system sample rate for highest possible quality. Together with a state- variable filter, Odds offers a total of 80 different configurations, covering a huge spectrum of sounds.
But the "stochastic control" part is what takes this plugin to an entirely new level: for every note played, Odds has variable trigger probability, selectable pitch transpose randomization patterns, plus further independent randomization of up to 4 additional synth engine parameters. These advanced features make it possible to create extremely complex, never-repeating melodic and tonal variations even out of the most basic note sequences. Add to this a highly flexible modulation generator with a multitude of envelope and LFO shapes – and, right within your existing device, you have the synthesis power and sophistication that can rival a small modular system.
- Bespoke dual-oscillator engine with multiple sound source types: virtual analog, FM, phase distortion, waveshaping, ring modulation, cross modulation, bit reduction, as well as hybrid (80 variations in total)
- Adjustable note trigger probability
- Individual randomization of pitch transpose, oscillator shape, modulation depth/speed, and level
- Waveform generators run at 96 kHz sample rate with an anti-aliasing filter for superior quality
- Built-in -12 dB/octave multi-mode state variable filter
- Flexible modulation generator with 24 modes: exponential envelopes, linear envelopes, multi-
waveform LFO (triangle, saw, square, pulse, trapezoid, peak), sample & hold, and random triangle - Built-in lag filters for noise-free, ultra-smooth parameter adjustment and modulation
Pricing and Availability:
Odds is immediately available for $39. It can be purchased as part of the KORG Oscillator or KORG Collection bundles, which are offered with discounts of up to 43%. Existing Sinevibes customers are also eligible for special upgrade pricing.
