kiloHearts have announced that the Reverser add-on for their Multipass and Snap Heap VST/AU plugins is available as a free download until December 28th ($19 regular price).
Reverser is a so-called “snap-in”, or simply put, an add-on for the Multipass and Snap Heap modular multi-FX plugins by kiloHearts. It can be loaded as a module in the two aforementioned hosts, or used as a standalone plugin in any VST/AU plugin host application on PC and Mac.
The plugin is easy to use and well designed. The user interface features a note length setting for the reverse effect (1/32 being the shortest value), crossfade and mix knobs, and a bypass switch. The timing value can also be entered in milliseconds (10 ms – 5,000 ms range).
The crossfade knob adjusts the fade-in time for the reverse effect, to avoid smooth playback and avoid any clicks and pops. The mix knob adjusts the dry/wet signal balance. It’s also worth noting that the user interface is fully resizable, which is particularly handy if you’re using Reverser as a real-time effect on a touchscreen monitor during a live set.
Even though Reverser was obviously built for use within Multipass and Snap Heap, I find it to be a rather capable little tool in its own right. There aren’t many freely downloadable reverse FX utilities out there, especially not as polished as Reverser. Since this is a time-limited offer, I highly recommend you to claim your free copy of the plugin while you still can.
To download Reverser for free, add it to your shopping cart on the page linked below and complete the free checkout process. Signing up to the kiloHearts email newsletter is entirely optional. You will receive your personal serial number via email, though, so make sure to keep it safe for later use.
The plugin is distributed in an all-in-one EXE installer which contains all other kiloHearts products, along with Reverser. Of course, you’re free to choose only the plugins you’d like to install on your hard drive.
Reverser is available for free download via kiloHearts (1.69 MB download size, EXE installer, 32-bit & 64-bit VST/AU plugin format for Windows & Mac OS).
