Se­quenced mod­u­la­tion on tap for Mac users

Known for their Mac AU ef­fects that strike a bal­ance be­tween low cost, stylish de­sign and supreme sound qual­ity, Sinevibes are one of the coolest bou­tique plug­in­mak­ers around. In our 10/10 re­view of Flow v1 in 208, we stated that, “at this price, Flow is a no-brainer for any Mac-based pro­ducer. Win­dows mu­si­cians would be right to feel en­vi­ous.” Well, PC users are about to be­come green-eyed again, as in­stead of cost­ing $29, 250 read­ers get v2 of Flow for – wait for it – ab­so­lutely nowt!

This colour­ful ef­fect lets you in­stantly coat your sig­nals in those spacey, jet-plane ‘whoosh’ ef­fects that are a sta­ple of elec­tronic mu­sic. Yet un­like your DAW’s stock phaser and flanger, Flow is pow­ered by a tempo-locked step se­quencer, fa­cil­i­tat­ing rhyth­mic sweeps, cre­ative glitches, grid-driven gur­gles, steppy weird­ness and ev­ery­thing be­tween.

Once you’ve had your fill of Flow, head straight to Sinevibes’ web­site and browse their cre­ative Mac AU tools. We love ReShuf­fle, a re­al­time swing ma­nip­u­la­tor; Emis­sion, a cool al­go­rith­mic re­verb; and Robo­tize, a rhyth­mic gran­u­lar ef­fect. Check out the full range at… www.sinevibes.com
