FourHead

FourHead screenshot

FourHead is not really a delay or granulator, though it lives in that realm. It is based on an audio buffer which constantly records the input in chunks. This buffer is then read by four “play heads” which play it back as looped segments. The length of the chunk to be played back is set independently from the length of the recorded buffer, and the pitch and start offset for each “head” can be modulated (the playback on 3 of the 4 heads can also be delayed), creating odd retriggering arpeggiations and granular-style swarms of sound. The output can also be fed back to the record buffer for endless noisy fun.

FourHead was developed for the 2021 KVR Developer Challenge.

Spectral Destroyer

Spectral Destroyer is an audio-mangling/FSU plugin designed around spectral processing. It uses pitch-shifting and delay to do what it does, but isn’t really designed to be either of those things. It is designed more for audio destruction and feedback effects.

Audio demos:

The examples below include a dry version of the sound to be processed, then a somewhat processed version, and finally a mangled version with lots of feedback.
