As previously mentioned, Particul is another noisebox/sound generator based around two noisy random-ish generators, each with lowpass and bandpass filters, which can then be run through a frequency shifter and delay. It has now been released, and is available from the Reaktor page on this site, or the NI Reaktor User Library.
Another one made with the free Eurorack simulator VCV Rack. The patch used is available below (and on the synth patches page). The video was once again generated with MilkDrop via the Shpeck plugin in foobar2000.

Particul is another noisebox/sound generator based around two noisy random-ish generators, each with lowpass and bandpass filters, which can then be run through a frequency shifter and delay. The synth itself is finished, and a preview version is available from the FSA Patreon page. The final version will come with a few more presets, but otherwise it’s done. I also need to write the readme, so the preview version has no documentation.
Here’s an audio example:
The sounds in this one come from a 7-string Ibanez guitar being processed in Bidule, with amp/pedal sims & other stuff. The video is footage captured from the game Superflight, processed with Acid Cam.

Added a pack containing 16 .wav-format sounds made from a recording of a contact mic on a large metal bowl. Jingley sounds, scratches, vibrations from a cell phone, etc. See the Samples page to download the zip file.

Thanks to KVR user Erisian for reporting this bug. There was a silly mistake in the installer which made it create the subdirectories for the presets twice, making them invisible to the plugin itself. This error has been fixed, so you can either uninstall it, download the updated installer (same link) and reinstall, or just move the presets from “C:\Users\[user name]\Documents\VST3 Presets\Kevin Breidenbach\FSA Shapeulator\Kevin Breidenbach\FSA Shapeulator” to just “C:\Users\[user name]\Documents\VST3 Presets\Kevin Breidenbach\FSA Shapeulator\”
Sorry for the inconvenience!
As previously noted, Shapeulator is a subtractive synth at its core, with a couple added bells & whistles. It is best at percussion, fx sounds, and other weirdness, and isn’t necessarily designed to sound “good” in the traditional sense, though it can do standard VA-style sounds too. This probably just won’t be your first choice for such things.
See the VST page for downloads and audio demos. Note that this one has an installer available to make it easier to get the presets where they need to be.
This one was made by processing the sound of a contact mic on a humidifier through hardware and software effects. The video is footage from the game Signal From Tolva, processed through a stack of 3 AcidCam filters. Enjoy!

A preview version of the upcoming Shapeulator synth plugin is now available from the FSA Patreon. This preview version does not have a finished GUI, a manual, or a preset library, but otherwise the functionality will be the same as the final version. Join the Patreon at any support level to gain access to this and other exclusives.
