Droplet – Rain Drop Delay by Sinevibes
Sinevibes has introduced a cool new delay effect called Droplet that produces a delay effect similar to the sound of falling rain, or other small objects on a surface. This effect is produced by chaining together 24 delay lines and randomizing the output order of them. The delay chain then utilizes a feature called variable frequency damping which applies filters to the outgoing delay lines at random. Time modulation is also applied and then the phase routing is switched; this along with randomized stereo panning creates quite the beautiful entropy. Here’s what the developers had to say about it, “Since the parameters are randomized each time a Droplet instance is created, just as any natural process it will never sound exactly the same – even the same preset on two different tracks in the same project will sound different.” Below is the full list of features.
- Chain of feedback delay lines with 24 “drops” and high-quality spline interpolation.
- Variable delay time and stereo pan randomization per drop.
- Feedback damping filter with low-pass and high-pass modes.
- Sine oscillator for delay time modulation with unique phase-flipped routing.
- Color-coded graphics with subtle animations.
- Fully hardware-accelerated rendering with support for retina screen resolution.
- Works with any application that supports Audio Unit effect plugins.
- Supports OS X 10.6 or later running on 32 or 64 bit Intel Macs.
Droplet is available now for purchase for $29 on the Sinevibes website. Enjoy the video below to witness the plugin’s effect!
