This incredible sequencer-driven flanger/phaser effect in Mac AU format is usually $29 – but you get it for free only with this issue
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
