Sinevibes has announced the release of four new effect plugins for KORG synthesizers: Hollow vast space reverb, Isomer ensemble delay, Luminance shimmer reverb, and Vibrant deep phaser. They say that this represents the company's next leap in KORG DSP algorithm development, allowing prologue, minilogue xd, and NTS-1 hardware owners to have direct access to a yet wider selection of high-quality effects – without having to use external software or pedals. Here's the details direct from Sinevibes.
KORG FX Hollow
Hollow is a vast space reverb. At its core is a feedback delay network with as many as 64
connections, which can produce a truly lush, almost three-dimensional reverb sound. With all
settings maxed out, this engine is capable of tail times that exceed 120 seconds, while still
having a smooth and naturally damped exponential decay. Hollow also features our trademark
unison-style modulation via three phase-shifted sine oscillators – which adds highly musical
depth and richness.
KORG FX Isomer
Isomer is an ensemble delay. It has two main stereo delays offering tempo-synchronized time
adjustment and near-infinite feedback. Their outputs are sent into four additional delays (two per
channel) with their own individual feedback lines and with their times being modulated by four
separate LFO signals. Thanks to the mutual phase offsets between these LFOs, and subtle
feedback, the delay tail gets a smooth and highly musical detuning effect similar to chorus
ensemble. Due to the opposing modulation between the left and right channels, Isomer also
adds an extra dimension within the stereo field.
KORG FX Luminance
Luminance is a shimmer reverb. It's a novel take on this highly coveted effect: an ethereal reverb
whose tail gradually pitch-shifts itself upwards or downwards. The plugin is based on a feedback
delay network which incorporates a granular pitch shifter and chorus-style time modulation.
Thanks to the very unique and meticulously executed tuning of its individual components,
Luminance smoothly follows the original musical content and creates a beautiful background
sound layer – reminiscent of a dreamy symphony of strings or pipe organs.
KORG FX Vibrant
Vibrant is a deep phaser. It's based on a classic analog-inspired design which connects six two-
pole all-pass filters in series and has a global feedback loop. This setup produces three deep notches in the incoming signal's spectrum, with strong yet smooth resonant peaks around them
– possessing a distinct vocal-like character at higher feedback values. The plugin's built-in
triangle LFO sweeps the center frequency within the musical range of 800 to 3200 Hz, exactly
