Kilohearts is proud to announce availability of Phase Plant — pushing the creative sound design envelope as a truly limitless hybrid synthesizer plugin, building on a modular system of GENERATORS, MODULATORS, and EFFECTS from the company’s acclaimed snapin range of small, single-purpose plugins that can be used either directly in a DAW as VST, AAX and AU audio plugins or as building blocks in a Phase Plant patch.
Phase Plant represents the pinnacle of the snapin eco-system that Kilohearts has been busy developing since the 2015 release of its award-winning Multipass modular multi-band host. Combining the power of snapin effects with new modules for signal generation and modulation, Phase Plant is a hybrid synthesizer capable of what has previously only been possible in classic modular setups. Indeed, it empowers users with more options than they can shake a stick at, allowing anyone to make their thing as big or small as they need it to be. But better still, it does all this on a single screen and with surprising ease.
Phase Plant provides a ‘blank page’ onto which users can add signal generators and snapin effects in a quick and creative manner until satisfied with the resultant sound. Grouping GENERATORS and setting output options make for speedy creation of advanced FM (Frequency Modulation) configurations in a matter of seconds. And at the bottom of the page perpetual possibilities abound, allowing adventurous users to speedily add any MODULATORS (modulation sources) they like — everything from an Envelope or multiple instances of an LFO (Low Frequency Oscillator) to utility features such as a Random (randomizer) module or more mathematical operations. Everything is click and drag, so Snap Heap host plugin users or owners of the above-mentioned Multipass will feel right at home.
Having said that, the intuitive modulation system from Multipass has been improved with audio-rate modulations (marked in green) to allow for FM between all types of GENERATORS. Getting to frequency modulate the pitch of a Wavetable using a looped sample as a source, for instance, is a breeze. But how about then routing that modulation back the other way, which would create a circular modulation with radically random results? Get going! After all, every module in the GENERATORS area has an audio-rate modulation link on its right-hand side — even the filters and distortions.
Phase Plant is available directly from Kilohearts for $169.00 USD/€169.00 EUR, bundled with Kilohearts Toolbox FREE featuring six snapin effects and the Snap Heap host plugin. (Phase Plant will load any snapin not already owned, but users cannot change their parameter values.)
